  • This came out just when I was researching more ‘ structured ‘ smoothie recipes… Id also recommend ginger in smoothies as well.. definitely gives it a kick; but with the right ingredients its delish!

  • Hello and welcome to my hunk kitchen and today we will be making a delicious protein shake. So you add a cup of milk, a scoop of protien, and some ice. A delicious scoop of protein, and a delightful scoop of protein. Get your ice, dip em in protein, blend, put in a scoop of protein and drink. Huh, I forgot the protein.

  • My biggest problem with my vita mix is getting the food out of the bottom of the canister. I wish you could just unscrew the blade.

  • I had a glass of green apple carrot juice last weekend and I loved it. I came home and I wanna make it but I had no idea is it I cut up the apple and carrot and add it into a blender and blend it and it is done or do I cut them up and use a juicer? I have no idea how to do it. Do I shred the carrot and do I peel the apple. I would also like to make some juice with cucumber or celery but what should I mix it with? Is it also done in a blender? Oh dear…. can somebody please help me here? I am new to this thing. Thank you. Oh btw… can I sprinkle chia seeds in it and drink or do I have to soak the seeds? Oh thank you thank you whoever will help me out.

  • I have already been using this specific cholesterol tutorial “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) for high cholesterol level. For 2 months have went by currently, I have consistently employing guide to reduce my cholesterol level. Stalin has got complications, therefore i ought to quit using it. I expect the upcoming bloodword examination..

  • No way. You can not just reduce weight and not be T2D. I fast 1 day a week and my BS crashes to low 80s to 70s and I have been doing this for 1 year. Now I went from very obese to over weight but It did nothing for my T2D.
    I am Hooked on T2D drugs for life!
    I now only eat 2 meals per day and eat 50 carbs day not 50 carbs per meal but 50 carbs per day. But again it does nothing to eliminate T2D drugs. Now when I go off my 50 carbs per day and add a slice of pie or red meat to a meal for a days my body goes crazy and my BS cranks to 110 to 120 and it takes days to get back to normal BS levels.
    I am Hooked on T2D drugs and I have terminally damaged my body and once damaged there is no going back.
    Prevention is the cure.
    What has to be done is all pre T2D people must be treated like criminals and forced to correct their actions.
    Hooked on T2D drugs for life!

  • I’ve had Vitamix for almost 8 years now and it’s a wonderful machine. Unfortunately, I used it faithfully for the first year, then life happened and I’ve rarely used it since. But, with videos like this, I can easily get more interested. I have the dry mix container and if I can pulverize graham crackers in it for a crust,there’s hundreds of uses, I could use it for. I also have that handy little scraper she used, to get under the blades. I’ve made almond butter too, but just used the wet container with the almonds and added a little bit of oil to get the ground almonds to emulsify. But, it was really hard getting that junk out of the container, since the bottom lid doesn’t come off. But, I’ve used it to make butternut squash soup and it does an awesome job. Let it run for about 6 mins and you really do get hot piping soup! The Vitamix motors are extremely powerful and heat up to get that soup hot and ready to eat. I’ve never put it in a cabinet, so I’m more intended to use it feel guilty not using it! It’s too expensive and useful, not to use..

  • let me tell you I had the corona virus that as soon I started with the fever I didn’t want to eat cause I lost my appetite for food, I didn’t eat for 10 days with fever, headaches, all my body hurts, couldn’t smell or taste, felt like throwing up and I had diarrhea �� it was horrible I prayed to God before google recommended 14 days immune support to me if you experiencing any symptoms of coronavirus, looking for a way to boost your immune system naturally research

    https://drkanayonaturalcure.com/product/14-days-immune-support/ I was about to contact dr kanayo on whatsapp after I placed my Order.

  • i was drinking a purple smoothie ad i LOVE IT so i got my purple down
    recipe: frozen rasberry strawberry blackerry and blueberry milk or half and half or heavy cream then blend ta da!

  • I use turmeric and ginger tea as my smoothie base. It works beautifully and keeps my stomach from cramping up. I also use the Ace blender which works really well and isn’t expensive. I use oat flour and nut butter for protein and I have to use a tablespoon of honey when I put celery in my smoothie because the celery taste is just too strong.

  • This logic of ‘reversing the habit is too difficult’ is common.

    It’s like saying “smoking is addictive”…if that’s the primary message then people will accept it as the truth….and since it benefits tobacco companies, that’s the message they inculcate. They could say, “Your 1st day off cigarettes is less harsh than your first drag on one. After that it gets easier.”

    Sugar food companies could say, “Your first day off our cereal is about as bad and annoying as a mosquito bite. Then all you have to do is not buy it anymore.”

    But these of course would render the companies profitless.

    Your Dad saying…”i don’t want you seeing that girl or boy anymore; she/he is bad for you” only makes the attraction stronger…and the companies’ psychologists know it. How can one be quite that psychopathic? What training allows it? Like Hitler’s death camp operators…what training allowed them to behave as they did?

  • im trying to find good breakfast smoothies b/c i have band camp soon but i’m scared these are gonna make me throw up while i’m marching in the heat ��’ oh welll theyyy look sooo good.

  • It’s been exactly one year since I was diagnosed with T2B. Luckily I came across Dr Jason Fung’s videos on youtube and I can honestly say it completely changed my life. My A1C dropped from 11.3% to 5% after 3 months and to 4.6% after 6 months. Now my A1c is 4.6-4.7% every time. I would say losing all the excess weight, intermittent fasting and of course eating healthier was the key…at least in my case

  • Great smoothie recipes. For the berry recipes, I would throw in ground flax or chia seeds. I might also try hemp seeds in other recipes for added protein and healthy fats.

  • This video has good information, but I’m not sure about the best diet plan that I need to work with, only because I have never used any. Anybody tried the Custokebon Secrets? I have noticed some folks mention great things about Custokebon Secrets.

  • If your PP reading comes just 204 mg/dl, doctor immediately recommends medication which are very dangerous, instead in just 15 days of intermittent fasting and low carb vegaterian diet one can easily reach normal readings but one has to continue this type of lifestyle through out his/her life with walking at least 5-10 Kms per day one can binge on sweet things later on.
    Similarly for acidity, gas and heartburn instead of taking antacids just eat bland diet for 15 days and then eat less spicy food acidity gas and heartburn will not return if you keep this lifestyle.

  • Goodful IS tasty, tasty is buzz feed. This is just another buzzfeed account.Goodful is basically a healthy version of tasty. (Im 99% sure it is)

  • I love green smoothies I only use water I have a vitamix the newest one that came out it’s has 7500 watts I love my vitamix,,,,,,,also I use garden of life plant �� base protein powder it’s dairy free sugar free soy free egg free no added sugar at all o% added sugar,,,,,I love it been useing it for 2 years best protein on the market

  • Thank you for sharing this, Marcus!

    I appreciate your encouragement and ideas, and look forward to renewing my efforts to engage my readers.


  • Thank you for your great video, too much fruit and sweetners are unhealthy, I personaly think that fiber and greens important in every smoothy

  • I am getting my 68 yr old father to do intermittent fasting and keto for his type 2 diabetes. How long will it take for him to get back his insulin sensitivity

  • Hello my name is Soraya and I would like to know what is a good fat like a avocado and what is a bad fat what is a good smoothie if you are diabetic without a lot of sugar in the smoothie is it good to make a protein drink and put a touch of almonds and and blueberries bananas so I can’t eat so much bananas because they make me constipated my sugar been high and why I’m going to check the fat in my blood so can you send me a recipe where I can check the fatty in my blood because they want me to take a pin shot once a week I do not want to take that shot so I’ve been drinking smoothies hoping that would take the bad fat out my blood what do you think I would like for you to email me sometime my email is Soraya Wilkerson at email dot-com thank you for that video I enjoyed the green video the veggies look good thank you holla back

  • I would like a smoothie for lunch each day I always skip lunch I like the tips what’s a good way in trying the smoothies doing it week by week I need help

  • My go to recipe is 1/2 cup of apple juice, half cup of coconut milk, one single serve container of strawberry yogurt, one frozen banana, frozen strawberries and raspberries. Add more liquid if needed.

  • Another one is adding too much ice. Freezing the fruit your gonna use before hand will help your smoothie not to be so Slushie like

  • you have to get the dog away first, then you can go back and remove the item bin the stuff he touched and re-do it in the same bowl after washing it no biggie. however even if she didnt, its her dog, if shes comfortable eating it after he did that then mind ya business she aint giving it to you.

  • One statement ahead: I am working in drug development and therefore my income depends on the development of new medicines. To all the haters: only productive comments please.
    I looked into intermittent fasting for quite some time and the results are very impressive. One should also add that you have to cut your alcohol consumption to 0 as well.
    The problem with this approach is its beauty at the same time all you need is the action of the patient. Patients, or ideally overweight people with a sugar addiction prior to become diabetic, can control their insulin levels themselves. All it takes is a bit of discipline… but it comes with two problems:
    1) Someone needs to tell them and give instructions. Probably many doctors aren’t aware of the effectiveness and they cannot bill life coaching. Doctors should be paid for keeping people healthy, not prescribing meds… but that’s a different story.
    2) People are super lazy. They just don’t want to get their ass of the couch if there is a pill that does the same. Well, it doesn’t do the same, but they believe that they are all set…

    As for Discipline; I love this Mike Tyson quote:”“Discipline is doing what you hate to do, but nonetheless doing it like you love it.”

  • Smoothies are bullshit. It’s proven that eating fruits, vegetables, seeds and all other stuff they put in smoothies as a whole/out of the palm is much healthier than putting it through a blender.

  • Has anyone used the Custokebon Secrets to lost lots of weight? Just simply do a google search. On there you will discover that a great tips about how exactly you can lost tons of weight. Why don’t you give it a chance? maybe it’ll work for you too.

  • These are not mistakes but definitely different preferences! Agree with some of the things you say but disagree with the title mistakes ��

  • Gosh I didn’t want a documentary about fibre and sugar, everyone knows that. All I want to know is how much water do I add? My instructions don’t mention water and neither did the ad I saw of the Sbolly blender lol.  Oh gosh I cant listen to this.

  • Awesome tips I didn’t know about the white vinegar I will try this and see if it helps I do not use granulated sugar in any recipes but I do use salt and other spices which I assume also cause irreversible damage but we shall see!

    Very wholesome channel I like this type of content other channels always have to bash other brands of blenders but none of that nonsense here

  • I’m so sad. [not really] But just as a data pointmy brand new 750 Pro does not have measurements on its capand holds 1.75 ounces. That’s a tiny thing, but seems like a baby-step backwards. I found all the other tips to be useful, though.

  • I’m happy I put in hard work 430am to 230am to improve on health and work hard as hell. Volunteer so if u know I’m getting paid one day in this world 12hrs all day 7 days ������ just playing fat food all day

  • If you have the soup setting, you can also use apple cider vinegar and water to clean without needing to soak. Just pour and turn on the soup setting. Happy blending!:)

  • I think a mistake is not adding your leafy greens to the bottom and the frozen things on top so that the blades break it down more efficiently. I learned that from BenjimanTv

  • From Canada, couldn’t open the amazon link to budget friendly blender can you please state the brand/model of blender you recommended ����

  • will you do a video of superfood to add to smoothies? I’ve been looking for variety packs of superfoods that are easy to add to smoothies & that I wont have to go buy a ton of different packs.

  • Type 2 diabetes is a signal from your body telling you i ‘m doing insulin resistance, why? Because too much junk in your cells I can not add more junk to your cells that’s why I stopped producing insulin after too much production… When you fast your body get rid of the too much junk in the cells and outside in the lymphatic system… So first eat natural food. No cooked food prefer raw food, avoid supermarket industrial food. Fast un meal a day, dinner or breakfast… Eat fruits and move your body if not moving enough every day

  • and in Italy who has tipe 2 diabetes those doctor recommand to take insulin idon’t know why. i think those doctor have to study properly about diabets.They don’t have any idea about treatment. They should see this video

  • If you can’t fix the cause then you must treat the symptoms as the temporary solution. Many illnesses need to do this. Reverse of diabetes of one person does not mean the diabetes is reversable. Reducing carbohydrates or sugar is only the method to prevent excess sugar as the result of the illness not for a healthy person. When systems are normal you are supposed digest sugar, that is why you have the function. When you are not able to digest the sugar that is when you have diabetes. That is when something is malfunction. Reducing sugar or fasting does not repair the system. Minimum consumption of sugar is still capable of getting the diabetes. It is simply system malfunction. Many illness comes from malfunctions with unknown causes. High blood pressure is treating the symptoms too. What causes high blood pressure. Not every aging person will have the illness.

  • Does Custokebon Secrets really work? I notice a lot of people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets. But I’m uncertain if it’s good enough to lost a lot of weight.

  • Smooth & Juicy recipes to look great and feel amazing. over 130 smoothies, juices and cocktails”

  • I like smoothies and I’m trying to lose a couple of pounds myselfand actually might work and they look delicious and so pretty �������� ������������������������ I love it

  • Please give detail, what is the method of fasting to lower insulin demand, question is should I do 16 hour fast or once a week water fast or 14 hour fast with low carb diet( low carb will help some not much like u said protein and fat also can raise insulin demand, or aim should be just loose weight any method fine, please give us in detail what is best way to go. Low carb with fast or just fast and don’t worry about low carb. White flour, sugar, pasta bread all these should be avoided or not? Your guide will be very helpful. Please give one day manu also what to eat with fast for vegan. Can I eat just balance nutritious diet without counting calories or carb like whole food plant base diet and do 14 hour fast, will this work to lower insulin. Most people eat 12 hours and fast 12 hours, is that work? During fast can I drink tea with sugar two teaspoon or only water allowed. Also, please advise can old people over 75 can fast if yes which fast method best for elderly.

  • After a successful 72 hour fast, two days of eating and a full day of fasting yesterday my sugar levels are at 4 this morning no shakes and feeling great. No medication. In the past when I had a 4 with metformin and insulin I had the shakes and binged on sugar to feel right. Additionally, I am 5 pounds away from the lower range of my ideal weight and my stomach is the flattest I have seen it since I came back from Greece 20 years ago where I literally walked my butt off for a month.

  • i make mine at home, a few times a week! i love a blend of berries with almond milk and kale usually use coconut greek yogurt too

  • 0:42 nice lampreminds me of a SpaceX Dragon string of pearls engine exhaust.

  • My morning breakfast smoothie
    Quick oats
    Açai powder
    Hemp seeds
    Frozen berries
    Greek yoghurt
    Hemp protein powder
    Full cream milk.

    I have this daily

  • Dr Fung is a LIFE SAVER. One question…………I want to GAIN weight so I need to do short fasting periods??? What low carb safe foods should I eat to gain weight?

  • But, chewing the fruits and berries will release enzymes to the saliva that starts the digestion already in the mouth. Drinking it skips this important phase.
    Mix the smoothies with crushed oats so that there is chewing afoot.

  • I drinks smoothies everyday day and night without adding any sugar. I add honey or dates for the sweetness. Smoothies makes me full all day long and best for loosing weight ����

  • Yes intermittent fasting 16:8, OMAD, light occasional exercise a few days a week(mostly walking) and ketogenic diet under 20 grams of net carbs per day with absolutely no medication or insulin whatsoever brought my A1c down from 10.4 to 5.4 in 3 months during quarantine. I just got my results a few days ago and my doctor was really shocked. She has been trying to get me on some type of medication like metformin or trulicity. I refuse to go down that path, I have change my lifestyle and I will stick to it and remain healthy, every time I need some kind of motivation I think of my kids and how much they need me around. Give it a try and see if it can change your life too. Good luck everyone.

  • Here is a simple way to boost your smoothies or protein drinks. Create a mixture of powders of your choosing. I use: raw cacao, sprirulina, chlorella, moringa, camu camu, and cinnamon. When I make my protein drink, I add a spoonful of my mixture and I get a small amount of each on a regular basis.

  • Recently I started drinking a smoothie with protein powder, frz banana, cocoa nibs and almond milk. i was surprised how full it kept me for so long. Oppose to my fruit heavy smoothies I used to drink. I’m guessing your advise is why. Thanks curly Corrina❤

  • Hi guys! If you watched until the end of today’s video you saw that in addition to all the wonderful tips I shared….I’m doing a GIVEAWAY! This is to celebrate 500K of you lovelies on this channel. Make sure to read the video description for more info! xo Lisa

  • Hi, have you thought about this kind of diet plan called the Custokebon Secrets? My work buddy says it helps people lost a ton of weight. Is that possible? I also heard a lot of good review about this diet plan. Thoughts?

  • There’s milk in everything and I don’t like water it’s odd i’m allergic to milk and fish and eggs and all nuts add chocolate������������

  • I have so much to say about this I’m so happy we agree on everything and all I’m gonna say is people who use fresh fruit + ice instead of just freezing fruit denying themselves their best life.

    and that I will always know if there is kale in my smoothie.

  • Question how do I freeze fresh fruit that is full of water and not turn into a block of ice I have to chip away at overtime I want to use it?

  • I have a good Smoothie recipe. ingredient’s: coconut milk, Blueberries, bananas, vanilla protein powder, honey, Almond butter or peanut butter. Optional: Chai seed, flaxseed.

  • Me: watching this video
    Josua: these are dates not turds
    Me: pennywise luaghing
    my cat: monster under meh bed is dat u?
    idk i found this so funny
    edit#1: ngl the B-roll music kinda sounded like the opening to it just sounded distorted

  • Spinach has a very mild flavor, so I generally use that. I’ve only had kale three times in a smoothie (when I purchased them in a store), but it had SO much mango that it hid the kale pretty well. You can still taste it though.

  • New subscriber here! Im in the research part of my journey as a 62 yr old aka old dog learning new tricks, lol. Ive pretty much decided on the no bells & whistles E310 but this video had so much good info will be watching more of yours. Ive recently began eating the majority of my diet plant based. Thank you

  • I’m actually drinking something just like that spinach smoothie! mine uses a super greens mix that has baby spinach, baby kale( I’m telling you, try baby kale, it tastes nothing like the usual kale, but has the same health benefits) and baby chard instead of just spinach, with the pineapple and fresh ginger. But I also use parsley in it too, and coconut water, collagen powder and a shot of George’s aloe water. It’s what I actually use to heal my gut after an auto immune reaction from celiac diseasecalms down the inflammation, and helps lessen the symptoms so I recover quicker. Plus it tastes absolutely amazing:)

  • There are viewers [like me] who like your recipes but are only here for the recipe and not the show [like the cam in the cabinet or the slow motion sounds, too many cuts, etc. ]. Just a suggestion.

  • I did this really weird thing once when I heard that stinging nettles (urtica dioica) are actually a superfood (which they are), so I picked some and made a banana-peanut-stinging nettle-ice-milk smoothie and it was actually really good.

  • Hahahahaha… I do understand the aversion to kale, as it can become rather pungent.

    Having worked with kale, professionally, I figured out a few secrets for using it successfully. The kale must be absolutely fresh. Kale does not keep well. To extend the life of kale, clean it as soon as you get it, and after soaking kale in cool/cold water to clean it, leave it damp; do not pat dry or spin your kale before putting it in a container or resealable bags, but there should not be a pool of water in there with it, either, and you must keep it in the refrigerator. If you plan to eat it within a day, you can strip the wet leaves from their thick stems, and store the damp, leafy parts in a bag or container, in the refrigerator. Only prepare kale like this if you plan to eat it within the next day.

    The flavor/pungency can start to turn before this next indicator happens; the definitive tell that the kale is no longer a lovely, bitter green, but a nasty vehicle to vomit-ville, is when the leaves start to get spotty yellow, and sometimes brown, patches or edges. Smell your kale when you buy it, and smell it again before using it. When you see this unfortunate spotting, you will notice a very distinctive, off-putting scent (imagine Pepe Le Pew with a sour stomach) ��. You will notice these things happen very quickly with pre-cut kale bags. I do not recommended eating kale at this point; you will hate kale forever.

    However, if you pair kale with some acidic ingredients, some sweet, and/or some salty, and a little bit of fat, it makes beautiful salads, cooked dishes, and yes, even a beautiful smoothie (keep the kale ratio low, as it is potent).

  • I’m glad I found this video I was diagnosed with Type 2 a year ago. I started with 10 Units a day I’m already up to 50 units and I gained a lot of weight. I’m ready to make that change now that I know the truth

  • Please help I have a question my father who never was diabetic or at least never seemed diabetic got covid 19 the doctors gave him a type of medication for the covid but it’s not good for diabetics but no one knew he was diabetic he didn’t eat for two weeks as he got worst and lost 60 pounds in that short amount of time as of now he’s on a new medication that’s seems to be working for him and he no longer has covid but he’s so much skinnier now how can the effects be reversed? Ik this situation is probably unheard of but anything at all would help

  • I see a lot of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (search on google). But I’m uncertain if it is good. Have you ever tried using this popular diet plan program?

  • How do you keep your cutting board clean? I never use one because I don’t know if it’s clean or holding onto bacteria. I don’t know if I should be cleaning with soap and water or with a cleaner of some kind. I’ve always been grossed out by cutting boards for this reason but I’m sick of wasting paper plates to cut on! Help��

  • I’ve had my Vitamix machine since 2013, but you wouldn’t know it by how clear my jar still is. What’s my secret? Two things:
    1. sometimes throwing lemon or lime rinds in the wash cycle as I clean the jar
    2. Once weekly, filling the jar with water and dropping in a Finish dishwasher tablet (with the red ball in center) to soak overnight or a few hours.
    Happy 2020 everybody! ♥♥♥

  • Would love to see the people that “cured” their diabetes as in actual diagnosed diabetes not pre diabetes go back to a terrible high refined carb diet and see how cured they actually are, if they’re truly “cured” it’ll make no difference. Maintaining strict control is not the same as “cured” or “reversed”

  • I Worked in medical field for long time, this is the first time to watch a Dr. Who shares his thoughts, knowledge, expertise and experience to the people… More blessings to you Dr. Jason Fung

  • My mum was diagnosed with type two diabetes, I asked her not to take her medication. She’s better now listening to doctor Jason fung

  • Thanks for the info. Iv got a ninja blender I use. Works really good. Getting up at 4am its normally the same. Been going by Dr Michael Gregor. But yeah baby spinach banana strawberries blue berries amla powder flax seed and some orange juice not from concrete. Going to have to get some speralina powder.

  • This is my first time hearing this after 15 years since dx of type ii. My a1c is 5.6, but i break the scales 100 lbs over! Told not to follow a low carb diet keto, do Mediterranean or vegan diet. Any comments please?

  • So how long do you fast? Do you start by intermittent fasting and then do a one day fast and then next fast to be a 3 day fast? Someone throw me a bone.

  • I forgot to add I have gone from 242 lbs down to 150.4 lbs this morning and no more metfortman or insulin but when will this diabetes be gone?

  • Adding juice to smoothies that already has fruit isn’t healthy, Fruits already have sugar in them and juice just adds up that sugar. It’s better to use Milk or water.

  • 3 Tbsp Plain Greek yogurt
    1Tbsp Chia seeds presoaked in hot water for 10 minutes
    Juice of 1 medium lemon
    1 cup watermelon (frozen preferably)
    1 & 1/2 cups water
    2 Tbsp raw honey

    Great weightloss smoothie drink 1 in morning a nd 1 befor bed and it’ll cut cravings and aid in weightloss.

  • Fun fact: Breakfast is not really THE most important meal of the day, that is actually fake, but that does not mean it is okay to miss out breakfast.

  • I just received my new Assent Vitamix & enjoy my smoothies. I love your channel for those wonderful recipes. I tried your Asparagus Soup & I love it. I just tried ice cream, but need another try. I will be ordering the smaller wet container as I live alone & don’t want to make extra contents. So, look forward to other videos.

  • I was type 2 diabetes. Medicines made me feel worse. This has been going on for years. Then my pancreas packed in and I take creon with meals and snacks. So as I’m not now producing insulin and my blood glucose was high it was determined I needed insulin. So now I have a flexipen and my blood sugar level has reduced. I fasted or a day and my reading went to a good reading. I’ve only been on insulin for a week. This video is a god send. I might try this a couple of days a week. Monitor myself closely to see what my readings are. Any advice?

  • Anyone tested out the Custokebon Secrets (google search it)? I have heard many amazing things about this popular diet plan program.

  • Wow amazing and honest Doctor. I’m type 2 Dibatic. Been. Sick for the last three years. Been taking metformin that doesn’t even work..it only makes sicker. My Doctor told me the next step is to start injecting insulin..I will not listen to my Doctor. But will take the advice of this God sent Doctor. Thank you for this awesome video. Now I can say I have hope. May God Bless you ����♥️

  • If you have to successful you have to lie to your patience that is the only incentives.
    If you solve the problem by telling you the truth chemical medicine companies will be in loss

  • I am gaining weight, but I want to have this for clear skin and a more toned body. So I will have this for breakfast and in the night I will take my protein one ��

  • I love this! I do love my smoothies!!! I did a video “WHAT I EAT IN A DAY” and I drink smoothies for breakfast almost everyday haha it’s kind of bad ����

  • Hi Lisa, I have a question about the dry container. I’d like to make my own rice flour, but I’d like to rinse the rice before I grind them. Can the dry container handle damp rice or any other ingredients that need to be washed or rinsed before putting in the dry container, or do they have to be completely dry?
    Thank you so much for this valuable information!

  • Im new here and in shock…..Ketogenic diet and fasting and level up and drop all sugars! Game ON! Thank you God! should of been fasting!!!

  • I agree with you doctors incr Ase her meds to 4 tablets in the morning an 4 in the evening I only give her 2 in the morning an 2 in the evening tell me is coconut oil good for diabetes or good fats? What doctors know nothing

  • I put in coconut oil spinach flax seeds and collagen protein powder! I probably have made all of these mistakes one time or other. I’m trying watch what goes in while I do keto.


  • I am a 10-year diabetes patient. I take 4 slow-released Metformin daily. Blood sugar average 120 every morning before meal. I fast according to Dr. Fung twice a week Mon/Thurs. Only one month, I repeat ONE month. I am metformin free 8 days ago and now my blood sugar is measure at 100 in the morning before meal. I am technically diabetes-free. I suggest that Dr. Fung facility a donation box on his web site allowing us to make some donation to his miracle work. I cure diabetes without spending a penny. Technically speaking, I saved money because I fast:) Dr. Fung rocks!

  • Is there any credibility to those saying blending is not as healthy as eating the vegetables or fruits? We know juicing is definitely not as healthy, firstly fibre is missing. But blending?

  • wow am i tired of these “healthy” fads, its a fucking sugary smoothie theres nothing healthy about it and adding vegetables to it wont decrease the amount of sugar in it or make it less harmful, give me some real unhealthy smoothie recipes already because thats what smoothies are

  • It was good to listen to the guidelines. So the final solution should be fasting? Where can I read about it? ( I have to get insulin 4 times/ day ) Would appreciate yr answer.

  • Cleaning foggy containers I use a plain magic eraser and gently scrub the inside in a circular motion, making sure you don’t hit a blade (ouch!). After each use, thoroughly dry the container with a soft cloth I use a microfiber cloth because it’s so absorbent. You can even clean older containers the same way. It doesn’t make them absolutely like new, but the difference is amazing. Drying them after each use is key.

  • I bought a vita mix and I have had trouble with it after 3 months. It doesn’t blend. It doesn’t make hot soups. I returned it several times. Finally they gave me a refurbished one and that one did not work either. It’s horrible customer service. It took me six months to save up for one and it was not worth it. My nutra bullet was and is a whole lot better.

  • I am fasting I guess you call it intermittent one meal every 24 hours the keto meal, I am a type 2 diabetic and I stopped all my meds ( diabetic ) but I am still running my #;s around 190 in the am and about 170 in the afternoon should i have stayed on my medicine ( diabetic ) most of the diabetic medicines cause weight gain, and I did not want to put my self in a diabetic coma. Share your thoughts and or email me at tracymaconga at aol dot com needs some heads up on people doing the same as my self.

  • Hi Lisa, actually I am a new follower of your channel and it looks pretty useful to me ��my question is that does the Vitamix a3500 come with a wet or dry container? Thanks dear

  • I just saw the control thing of my grandpa, they don’t ever check insuline resistance, they only check, among other things, glucose in blut. I’m sad and angry about thath, for now i just hope thath my grandpa will listen to me in a way to make him healthier. And of course, stop paying for so many medicaments that makes his life more difficult. Thaenk you for sharing this vidoe.

  • I thought this was gonna help texture wise and stuff but this is health stuff which is kinda obvious. I mean of course it’s gonna be healthier without a sweetener.

  • Thank you for these awesome tips and tricks! This made it so easy for me to get my new Vitamix and not be as intimidated by it ����

  • what about the patiens who are detected with diabetes type 2 but they have really low weigh? is this treatment also healthy for them? she lost 10 kg in two months and thats how they found she has diabetes

  • Listen to dr srikant gichkar from India who propagated this concept in early 1990. He stressed on the insulin resistance concept and how to treat it as well. The concept of two meal a day diet written in vedas and yogi books centuries back in India……Which is again reviving…….. Thanx to gurus in India……But west pick up incomplete knowledge like yoga ana Ayurveda without it’s completeness and commercialises everything…….Main culprits……They have now come.out with naked yoga…..For them it’s just exercise to stay fit but it’s actually way of.life for us

  • Dr. Fung is absolutely correct about intermittent fasting. As one of my strategies of correcting insulin resistance in my own body I began intermittent fasting. I eat nothing from about 7 PM to noon the next day. It has worked wonders. I am not hungry at all each morning and do not crave breakfast. My A1C is going down.

  • If I fast my blood sugar skyrockets instead, also I have hiatal hernia and I can’t wait more than 3 hours between a snack and another because I’ll feel nauseous and ill puke. I honestly have no idea how to manage all this.

  • You know, when you go to your mom’s, try blending the greens first, with water or your other base, and then add everything else. You’ll get a smoother smoothie, even when using a not so great blender!

  • Thank you so much for those tips! Maybe you can help me on this Vitamix cleaning topic: How can I clean the underside/outside bottom of the container? It gets gunky and other than using a toothpick and painstakingly tons of time, it is so hard to clean. Any ideas? Thank you in advance!

  • I came get mine blended up enough to drink. Like you pretty much have to chew them no matter how long I blend them. I have a ninja.

  • Just listened to Dr Gregor. Article published 18 September 2019 volume 47. Title: Does a Ketogentic diet help diabetes or make it worse. Dr Gregor says this is very bad because of the Methylglyoxal which is a toxin found in Altzheimers sufferers. Yet you promote this. I would love to hear Dr Fung’s reply to this please. In fact keto is the worst diet for diabetes.

  • YES HE IS WORLD HEMISPHERE, GALAXY RENOWN, UN TOO. PAID BY YOUR TAXES!!! What is he renown for? Telling you not to eat sugars and carbs and and fast. BRILLIANT, GIVE HIM THE NOBEL PISS PRIZE.

  • I love Jason Fung with all my heart he has saved my life I do not have words to express my gratitude. I beam with a smile each time I see him online. God bless Jason Fung

  • Great video! I drink a smoothie every morning for breakfast. I put protein powder and Maca powder in it, as well as cow’s milk, fruit, and veggies.

  • I have my vitamin for few months, I bought it to blend the American ginseng, because the sales lady said no problem. So, I used it to do so when I bring it home. Unfortunately, it scratched the bottom plastic very seriously, some black plastic removed, it’s really not good, it makes me scared to use it for few months.  

    I use it recently for blending a smoothy with normal frozen fruit and water, it stopped with a flashing light. I’ve been tried to re-start it again after an hour, but not success. Even after few days now, still keep flashing, it doesn’t work. What can I do?

  • Alhamdulillah. Jadilah carrot milkshake. Ada idea nak buat apa dengan plain yogurt lepas tonton video ni. Semoga ada hidayah Allah untuk kamu.

  • due to very recent episode of DKA, I am now on TWO types of insulin, and my weight is increasing. I have to, according to my doctor and the network endocrinologist, stay on the insulin until the sugars are under control. From reading Dr Fung’s DIABETES CODE, I know this is not an ideal situation because of the insulinemia. Can fasting and diet (Keto/LC) help me offset the weight gain from the large volume of Insulin i am injecting each day?? Anybody???

  • Thank you Lisa for all these tips! I wonder however why I cannot blend my cooked and hot veggies without messing everywhere in the kitchen?? and sounds dangerous too! Do you have an explanation?

  • Use to drink them twice a day: Frozen bananas, soy milk, and PB Fit peanut butter powder. Absolutely delicious and I can make it as thick as I want depending on amount of soy milk. A little cinnamon is nice.

  • I bought mine in 1980 and it is still functioning wonderfully. It is all stainlees steal which makes it heavy. I am battling Arithitis and have trouble handling it. Vitamix is amazing.

  • Please make a video about using the 20oz cup and 8oz bowl, especially about how to screw on the blade base and getting the Vitamix to recognize them. Also recipes geared specifically to them. Keep up the good work I love watching your videos!

  • i use strawberries strawberry yogurt and milk to make a strawberry smoothie and it’s amazing except i don’t like how the seeds float around it seems weird ��

  • Dr. Jason U are the real doctor thanks for your help… For telling us what other Doctors won’t to tell us. I respect you much ������������

  • Uh oh, that’s what went wrong… I didn’t put enough almonds and ya you know the rest. Nut flour! But I added a little coconut oil to get it going and eventually it became butter. I’m sure the oil altered the taste though. Better luck next time I guess!!! ☺️

  • My mom has diabetes 74 yes an it’s always high she do not used much sugar hungry every 2 hrs hardly eat she did a blood test yesterday to know if she goes to insulin or dialysis

  • Isn’t protein powder unhealthy for you ( https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/the-hidden-dangers-of-protein-powders)? Also, if you put juice which are from the shelf, won’t they have preservatives and if you buy preservative free juice, won’t it have sugar which are not natural sugars. I initially though of taking protein power with smoothie to help me be healthy but I researched and found their are serious side effects of using protein.

  • I tried to fast but always stop because I get weak, shaky and my heart rate goes up. Same thing happens if I don’t eat consistently through out the day and have a bed time snack. I eat healthy foods. My doc thinks I am prediabetic because of this and told me not to go to long in between meals. What should I do? I don’t want to get diabetes.

  • I see many people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets. But I’m uncertain if it is good. Have you ever tried using this popular weight loss diet plan?

  • I received 2 tampers with a Vitamix package containing both wet & dry containers. Are the tampers interchangeable? I’m afraid of using the wrong one, possibly changing ‘the tamper won’t get into your blades’ theory.

  • I use Honey and a tablespoon of Xylitol to add some sweetness to my smoothies. I’m hoping the xylitol will prevent some tooth decay that might come from the acids from the fruit and Orange juice I add in.

  • To help get the last bits of food out of the container, scrape as much as possible with the spatula. Then, place the container back onto the machine and turn it on for a couple of seconds. Much of the food that was stuck on the blades will now be on the sides of the container ready to be scraped out.

  • I hve listened dr Fung 2 months earlier I observed int.fasting 16:8 n I lost 9 kg in two months…left every sweet thing n took less crbs n green t n hot water…thanks to u dr fung may Allah bless u

  • I used to grind wheat berries for my waffle recipe in my Vitamix. One
    thing I found out the hard way is that some very hard particles survive
    the processing,and can be quite unpleasant to bite into. I started sifting
    the flour after grinding it,which fixed the problem.

  • I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes with a MMOL 97 in January. 6 months later it was MMOL 39. I started fasting 16:8 and reduced my carbs and now I am remission. My GP was amazed and couldn’t believe I hadn’t taken my prescription. This really works.

  • Have you tried the stainless steel model? How does it compare? Do you have any issues with staining with the plastic 7500? Thank you!

  • His stuff does not work. I tried it. I actually met him as a patient but I was not impressed. He was not talkative at all and I did not learn anything from him. Additionally, keto is not good long term

  • MISTAKES WITH ADVICE IN THIS VIDEO: Do not cut fruit and replace it with artificial sweeteners. Ideally, you would cut the fruit, but to be realistic, just add it. Artificial sweeteners may not spike your blood sugar, but they do still send the chemical signal to your brain so you crave sweet things more frequently. Just use the fruit, because the added fibre will help compensate the sugar so it wont spike ur blood sugar that much. Plus, it’s way cheaper and packed with nutrients.

  • helpful to know about the vitamix not working if you try to cut ingredients, i have been stuck between the explorian vitamix and the pro 750 I just need to know if you can get a smaller container size for the pro 750 because i think it’s to large for me yet the explorian is the perfect size container but i’m not sure about how long the machine will last compared to the pro 750 brushed stainless steel also like that it’s quieter than the explorian. Now a tip for you would be to have talked about the smaller size containers you can get if you don’t want to make the larger size recipes instead of trying to cut them in half. ( if they do have them right, i’m waiting for a reply from vitamix)

  • I would really appreciate a similar series with tips and usage for the food processor. Hopefully Cuisinart sponsors a food processor series or episode:).

  • One year later, just seeing this tips & hacks bc I just purchased my first Vitamix….love it!
    This was very informative, thank you!

  • One retired ex-engineer diabtetic got
    inspired by this doctor made an extensive lcfh programme in kerala southen state of India…..even wrote books….conducted lengthy programmes and awareness speeches…
    Aknowldege thankfully Dr Jason Fung in his speeches…

  • Best way to clean your Vitamix or any other blender’s jug, is to rinse it quickly and dry it right away after making a smoothie. No hard chemicals needed. So simple and easy ��, but it’s only my opinion.

  • I’m so excited about the cap being a measuring cup as well! Thank you for sharing all these tips. I have noticed a bit of cloudiness starting to form and will be trying your cleaning trick as well. Looking forward to learning more from his channel. New subscriber!
