Make a list of your most common food rewards and swap it with a non-food idea. The list is personal to you, but here are a few ideas to get you started: Pamper yourself. Go fancy with a full-body massage, manicure, pedicure, haircut or coloring job. You can also keep it simple with a hot bath, music and bubbles.

Changing Your Food Mindset. Back then, food wasn’t just food. Again, food was my problem solver. And being a problem solver isn’t the role that food is supposed to play in anyone’s life. Food can be enjoyable, fun and fuel, but not a problem solver.

And certainly, it’s not meant to comfort or soothe emotions. For example, if you want to shift your diet to include more healthy foods, first adjust your mindset by taking away “bad” and “good” as descriptors of what you’re eating. Whether you’re stressed or sad, food can also provide a quick fix by stimulating the brain’s pleasure/reward system, in which the neurotransmitter dopamine is released in response to pleasurable experiences involving, say, food, music or sex.

Getting plenty of this in your diet keeps your levels high, that’s a good thing. 2; Chocolate – As a special treat, chocolate may have properties that improve mood and even reduce tension. But remember, the key is to choose real chocolate (dark is best), and in moderation.

2; Start Now: Break the Bad Mood/ Bad Food. Our reward becomes the twinkly little lights of a life well lived moment by moment, rather than putting pleasure on hold until we can finally allow for, at the end of the day, a floodlight of reward. Doing the above stopped me looking at food as a reward for doing exercise and killed my obsession with calories in vs calories out. It took a while but finally exercise became all about health and well-being for me and nothing to do with food.

STEP 2: I stopped having crap in the house. Human beings are funny. Finding comfort in food is common, and it’s part of a practice called emotional eating. People who emotionally eat reach for food several times a.

Here are 7 ideas on how to change your mindset: 1. Accept that your thinking needs adjusting – We’ve all had goals and dreams that didn’t unfold the way we hoped or expected. When this happens repeatedly, we start to wonder what we need to change. But rarely do we look inside at our own thinking as the place to start making changes. In order to change subconscious patterns, it’s helpful to understand two basic rules of human behavior. 1. There must be a positive intention motivating all behaviors.

2. The subconscious mind will go to any length to protect you and what you believe (like a worried mother). 5 Steps to Change Your Subconscious Beliefs. 1.

General principles that may assist in this scenario include behavior modification to reduce unnecessary eating, focus on choices that are high in bulk or satiety, and choosing nutrient­rich foods that can meet nutritional goals with a lower energy cost (Burke, 2001).

Behavior modification, such as serving smaller portions, serving food on a smaller plate, instructing the patient to eat slowly (as it takes approximately 20 minutes to feel a sense of satiety), and increasing activity appropriate to the medical condition, may help the patient reduce energy intake.

  • THE TRUTH BEHIND THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, COVID-19 LOCKDOWN & THE ECONOMIC CRASH
    https://freedomplatform.tv/the-truth-behind-the-coronavirus-pandemic-covid-19-lockdown-the-economic-crash-david-icke/

  • You GO Dr. McDougall!! As an African American Nurse I find it difficult to persuade my patients to change their diet. This is across the board but my Asian Indian patients as well as Latino patients as well as Black and Southern Caucasian. We are married to our poor food habits. I’ve been Vegan for 3 years. Enjoying the benefits. I continue to encourage. You are spot on. Our vulnerable populations must be helped.

  • FANTASTIC! And that’s so true… If we don’t even have an effective vaccine for the flu.. what makes ppl think we’ll have one for this Virus. ��

  • I connected the dots a long time ago and will tell you why where is so much sugar in our food. It’s to make us sick and die an early death. It’s called Global Eugenics folks. If the sugar and processed food don’t get us, the poisoned water, 5G, Y GIG, vaccines and breathing chem trails will. That is the agenda in a nut shell and that’s a FACT.

  • I stopped sugar a couple years ago…. a few days ago I ate a doughnut…. wow it tasted great but about an hour later all my skin got hot and my belly got sick and I got a craving for another doughnut…. it was like a dopamine “drug withdrawl.”

  • Meat shortages, that’s a laugh. You walk around any Costco and you can see the meat section is huge. Someone is eating that meat and you can see who they are as they waddle around. That high protein diet is working very well for them.

  • How can you really understand and write a book about sugar addiction if you don’t really like sugar??? I would like to hear from an expert that was a sugar junky and managed to totally transform that lifestyle

  • Everything in life is about self control and moderation. Food is not an activity or reward it’s for sustenance and energy. Don’t eat out of boredom or addiction. Eat for survival and necessity.

  • Excellent conversation. Love all your books, Dr. Weil. Natural Mind is such a good read for exploring the mind’s need to experience altered states and the various means we will go to for these states. Consciousness delights in variety and especially novelty. Thank you Aubrey and Andrew.

  • Carbs don’t make you fat, fats don’t make you fat. Eating them together make you fat. Cake, pbj, ice cream, grilled cheese. Buttered toast with jam.

  • Great talk thank you so much for this talk and by the way to learn to Ear a low fat whole food starch based diet. Its beautifull, its so tasty and your energy grows into amazing heights and that makes it possible to go with your dreams and bring lots of joy and hope into the world

  • That’s no hero’s journey. The heroes journey is when your kid lives but is quadriplegic then you dedicate your life to being a caregiver. You live your life wondering if you could’ve done something to change the outcome. You give up any career goals to care for your kid forever. Sorry but her positive attitude, miracle mindset is baloney. His positive outcome is much more a reflection of your resources and your connections.

  • I literally laughed out loud when he said “women’s rights!”. He is speaking like a passionate man that has been diligently working to save the world. He’s fed up in the best way.
    I love what he said regarding there being NO special food, herb anything, just this basic diet of starch, fruit and vegetables. Simple, I love it ����

  • I drink unsweetened black coffee and unsweetened tea and plenty of water. Especially water! I hardly ever eat sweets or snack foods. Avoiding them has caused me to lose interest in eating them.

  • Everything in life is about self control and moderation. Food is not an activity or reward it’s for sustenance and energy. Don’t eat out of boredom or addiction. Eat for survival and necessity.

  • See, after reading my two comments below, even if you disagree, you can’t help but noticing what I have pointed out. This makes it harder to stay focused on the content because what I said is true.

  • Julia Ross, author of The Cravings Cure, and Trudy Scott, author of The Anti-Anxiety Solution, have had very good results with giving certain amino acids for cravings. I have had good success with DLPA for cheese cravings, 5HTP for carb and alcohol cravings in the afternoon or evening, and GABA for anxiety (which often causes me to overeat). I’ve also had some success with substitutions, such as avocado for cheese and berries with a small amount of half and half and stevia for ice cream.

  • This is one of the best ones. She has an aura about her that makes her frighteningly attractive on an emotional, intellectual and spiritual level.

  • Sugar feeds the unhealthy bacteria in the stomach which effects not just digestion but overall health. Studies are finally linking gut bacteria to an array of problems in modern health including Autisim and Cancer but many lesser illnesses also.

  • 17:25 It sounds crazy to wake up for an ice-cream bar, but I’ve been there. This is what it’s like being a sugar addict. There’s been times where I woke up in the middle of the night and had to drive to a convenience store to get some ice-cream. If you’re not inclined to get addicted to sugar, consider yourself lucky.

  • Change a superstition with another superstition. Impose by force one diet with another. Same government. Same evil. Different profiteers.

  • Words can not describe how AWESOME this interview was. I thought I was watching a video that would help me with my sugar detox. I got an interview that changed my entire life! Sooo thankful!!!

  • Chef AJ, thank you so much for having done this interview with Dr McDougall. I was genuinely missing him since the webinars with Gustavo Tolosa ceased. Dr McDougally looks and sounds rested, relaxed, energetic, and enthused about the subject matter. Both of you are so inspiring!

  • Thanks AJ for getting this guy on. Been to many of his Advanced Weekends and always wanted to do the 10 day. Thank you so much. So glad Dr. McDougall IS BACK!!!

  • Very interesting comments on mindset that I didn’t expect. Especially with being able to forgive yourself, this process is amazing. Thanks JJ and Tom!

  • with Dr. Weil ye know you’re always gonna get a lot of greens (the chief
    color of Dr. Weil’s home). Great piece, @ Aubrey Marcus a living legend
    in Dr. Weil. Been studying Dr. Weil for years years I tell ye.
    .

  • AJ, thank you so much for all the amazing interviews! If you won´t mind I´d love to request you doing an interview with PCRM’s adorable Dr. Hana Kahleova too, that would be so amazing as she´s such a great and well-spoken Dr. in the wfpb community as well, and somehow gets way too less invited here on youtube to share her knowledge I think.

  • That’s really sad when she brought up the husband and how he started feeling threatened. My significant other would never do that to me but my family will. They start teasing me when I’m on a “diet”. When I feel better, when I lose weight. When i decline all the sugar they offer me when I decline all the carb filled foods they offer me. They want me to feel bad for what they feel is me trying to seem better than them. And I don’t I just respectfully decline. They try and gang up on me to tease me about dieting. Meanwhile we have a history of type 2 diabetes and overweight people. Oh well..I stay strong and stick to my guns. I don’t try and give ANYONE lesson. It’s my personal choice to give up breads, pastas, sugars, and alcohol. If someone declines alcohol or a cigarette nobody bats an eye. But if you start saying no to sugar or carbs all of a sudden people feel threatened. Well we better start declining sugar the same way we would pass on drugs!!!

  • Hmmm… ��
    I was always puzzled as to why seemingly intelligent and respectable nutritionists and registered dietitians advocate “intuitive eating”. Even though that obviously is very detrimental for people suffering from eating disorders. Maybe this is the reason why.

  • Meat shortages, that’s a laugh. You walk around any Costco and you can see the meat section is huge. Someone is eating that meat and you can see who they are as they waddle around. That high protein diet is working very well for them.

  • You both look healthy to me! Thank you both. Great presentation. Please keep optimistic Dr McDougall. Things are changing. I’m with you. One question, can you please talk about Vitamin D. I just watched Joe Rohan’s video with guest Dr Patrick. (You’ll laugh at JR’s question about dark leafy greens and oxalates).

    Not just in the US, but in an abattoir and meat processing plants here in Australia there have been Covid-19 outbreaks. It makes me wonder why more so there than other food processing facilities. Maybe because of the manual nature of it and of course the people are in close proximity.

    Yes Dr McDougall, of course all lives matter but the point about the BLM movement is about the way that community have suffered from injustice for too long. It had to be addressed and change has to happen.

  • I listened to this podcast the night of my goal: to run a full mile with no breaks. I was so happy and grateful. I told myself “its already been done” and i made it happen. Next goal is 2..then onto a 5k. You have inspired so many including myself.
    I have been thinking of school to be a nutritionist..and literally the next video i see of yours is specific to health and nutrition. I take this as confirmation. Thank you for your work and your effort. You have reached the far depths of the deep south and now theres a shutter down here of awakening. Thank You Sir Aubrey Marcus.

  • By the way, the pioneer researchers about glycemic index in foods were Dirk Pearson and Sandy Shaw who wrote “Life Extension” back in the early 1980’s. Body builders were using this as their dietary Bible. This what started all the interest in using isolated amino acids. Well worth a read.

  • I agree But everything turns to sugar. It’s not just in sweets. sugaristhedevil.net I would love one day to be a guest on your show. My story is helping people. I came from having health problems like type2 diabetes, high blood pressure etc. today I help people. Sugar is an addiction, Its evil that’s what is killing us. It’s a silent killer.

  • Her power of reframe is just freaking amazing. The mindset shift she has made totally change people’s view of everything in life. Totally agree on taking baby steps. Thank you Jj and Tom.

  • Not bad information but it is very distracting on closeups of GG, witnessing upper facial paralysis from da Botox. She would look amazing if she was natural. Her contact lens seem to be bothering her. On top of that, her false eyelashes need a bit more getting used to, they appear heavy. -Just saying! Ps. Very heavy use of hairspray. Can’t we be natural? It would be more credible.

  • Dr M speaks truth. Still no money in prevention and Big pharma still driven by profit (as all respected vegan/plant based MDs knew and called out pre virus) no flu vaccine has large third independent public studies to show efficacy and safety. SARS/CoV2 will be no diff. It will be worth billions per country/trillions globally. It’s tied to Big tech via contact tracing. All big tech cos CEOS have been called (AGAIN) by lawmakers/congress for shady business practices…but yet so many in vegan community now think govt/big pharma/politicians incentivized by big pharma/big tech are all trustworthy. Sure. How many dying of or with the virus? Many why’s, hows and independent studies on stats, cause, symptoms etc not being done but much fear being sold:
    Medicare paying hosp (hurting for profits since virus) more for Covid patients:

  • what an amazing and inspiring HEROS JOURNEY. Thanks JJ and Tom for this one, her triumph over what happened is inspiring AF, I won’t lie I shed quite a few tears hearing her story.

  • she mentions trailer living a few times like its a bad thing. like living in a trailer or growing up in one makes you lesser of a person. otherwise a good episode.

  • Not bad information but it is very distracting on closeups of GG, witnessing upper facial paralysis from da Botox. She would look amazing if she was natural.

    Another great interview!

  • that is why i started my small channel, to tell pple, we/they can heal life style illnesses & start living again.. I am loving life again, as i have told you my story b4. take care & keep eating wfpb vegan SOFAS free. xo

  • You GO Dr. McDougall!! As an African American Nurse I find it difficult to persuade my patients to change their diet.

  • This is one of the best ones. She has an aura about her that makes her frighteningly attractive on an emotional, intellectual and spiritual level.

  • Thank you so much for this!! I was nearly in years hearing the story of her son. This is really powerful stuff! And what’s she’s said here about forgiveness is hitting home really hard and extremely helpful given I’m struggling with that too here. Thank you so much for these videos and thank you JJ Virgin!! Bless all of you ����������������

  • Great video! Big-food, big-pharma, the ADA and EatRight (A.N.D.) don’t really want you to reverse your Type 2 Diabetes. Managing your chronic, progressive diabetes is a great business model for all of them. They will feign concern and pretend to help as long as it provides profits for their share-holders.

  • I was excited to hear Dr. McDougall speak love his passion! Was really disappointed to hear he’s denying himself contact with his family and is a mask person. Of what value is it to be in such great health if you’re going to live life in fear (his words) and alone? Sad.

  • I don’t know how I would feel if a doctor looked me in the eyes and told me that the best thing to do was to let go of one the most important persons in my life, my son and he ended up surviving, Isn’t that the worse medical error possible? Would’t it be my social duty to warn everyone about what really happened? Wouldn’t that help prevent future mistakes? I don’t know but here’s the big one: how long would it take for the words ‘attempted murder’ to stop harassing me, would they ever? A powerful interview, thank you.

  • Thank you for this video Chef AJ & Dr. McDougall! Truer words were never spoken and you raised my spirits after losing a friend, just last night, to the ravages of a poor diet! I hope that ears will be opened, lives will be saved, the planet will heal, and everyone will embrace the simple truth that “it’s the food”! Bless you both for your work!

  • @Alexis Brown: nothing tastes as good as feeling good feels!!Once we neuroadapt fruit will be sweet, out taste buds can actually taste the food. But when our taste buds are coated with fat, we cannot taste the food. On the SAD diet we stay hungry all the time because we are malnourished, seeking nutrients that just arent there!!! Its the FOOOOD!!!

  • You know, it’s one thing to forgive. It’s quite another to let someone get away with this just because “we don’t know her story, she may have CHILDREN at home, maybe she is here ILLEGALLY, maybe she’s afraid”. Blame her and judge her? Yes! What if she was texting when she hit your kid? Drunk?What if this isn’t the only crime she’s committed? What if she has committed other hit and runs and other families are looking for her? What if finding her would actually help other victims? What if finding her and calling her to task for what she has done would actually help HER turn her life around if such is the case? Do you really believe that if she is illegal and frightened with kids of her own, how is it ok that she left yours for dead? Forgiveness is a wonderful thing but downplaying the seriousness of a crime is not.

  • Why does Tom look so dreadful? Closeups show poor complexion and heavy bags under his eyes. He has a skeleton face. Did he just have surgery or perhaps he underwent an aggressive cleans or does he have allergies? He doesn’t look well. I know someone that has this appearance and you have to stay 5 feet back when he talks because of horrible halitosis. If you look close and examine this poor soul, you can see that his ears seem to be inflamed. Good news is, Turmeric helps reduce inflation. This could help. I like how he does’t interupt.

  • Good herbal remedies for Herpes Virus. All thanks to Dr Agbonifo for helping me get rid of my Herpes Virus With his herbal roots and Herbs mixture I have been suffering from herpes for a very long time now and was told by my doctor that it has no cure I know a lot of people have been told so you don’t really have to believe that because I’m one of the people Dr Agbonifo have cured from the virus with herbs you can contact him now and be free from the virus too you can add him on what app +234 903 474 9874 or [email protected] outlook.com.

If the sugar and processed food don’t get us, the poisoned water, 5G, Y GIG, vaccines and breathing chem trails will. That is the agenda in a nut shell and that’s a FACT.

  • i was so proud of dr. weil for bringing up how fuckin important carbs are but unfortunately got disappointed that he didnt continue on to talk about the ridiculous joke of a diet that keto is and how its simply not good for the heart. look up on what the research Expert none other than dr. greger has to say about it. and also if u know anything about the lymph system which is the body’s sewer system then u know how harmful a high fat diet is, especially one that also eliminates carbs, geeeeeez. u wanna go into ketosis then fast and control ur fuckin hunger n let the body know who’s boss instead of destroying it with a ridiculous animal fat filled diet that includes no dreaded carbs! not saying vegan keto is any better though, thats how bad regular keto is. u wanna talk about energy thats actually sustainable, then make a fuckin smoothie and add some carbolicious fruit for some electric energy (we r electric in case ya didnt know), some greens to sustain it and some flax (2 tablespoons not a whole bucket) for some good fats and omega 3’s! high carb vegan for life ✌️

  • great podcast thank you guys. Aubrey, I think that example about salt has a different meaning, people used salt back then to preserve food, and not like a supplement. They didn’t have fridges back then, so the only way to preserve meat or fish is to use salt.

  • This was one of the best interviews on ANY station not just yours fun watching dialogue between two people well versed AND so in alignment on most topics discussedkudos brother ��

  • “Deeper. slower. quieter, and more regular.”

    Years back, I used to ride the bus. It was a half-hour trip.
    I got to the point where sometimes I could breath about 30 breaths per ride.

  • Her power of reframe is just freaking amazing. The mindset shift she has made totally change people’s view of everything in life. Totally agree on taking baby steps. Thank you Jj and Tom.

  • I am so excited to hear you talking about how powerful sugar addiction is, and switching from being a sugar burner to being a fat burner. I have been off and on the ketogenic diet since March in hopes of being able to cut out sugar completely. It has been a real struggle, and I’ve lost weight and gained weight, and now I’m on day 2 of eating carnivore. I know how badly I am addicted to sugar, because every time I fall off keto and eat sugar again, getting back on keto is really hard. I actually got so depressed that it was affecting my job performance. I’ve got some time off work now, so I hope to get through the worst of the detox while I have some time off. I know I feel so much better once I’ve been in ketosis for a few weeks.

  • Does anyone know if his grandchildren are still with them, in the time of this virus. I know they were taken care of them at the beginning.

  • And I love your passion YES ALL LIVES MATTER AND WE CAN ALL CHANGE AND WE HAVE TO ACT. LETS CHANGE TOBLOW FAT WHOLE FOOD STARCH BASED VEGAN DIET.

  • Good grief! This woman oozes confidence and health. She is so articulate and full of compassion… I want to be her when I’m her age!

  • Sugar feeds the unhealthy bacteria in the stomach which effects not just digestion but overall health. Studies are finally linking gut bacteria to an array of problems in modern health including Autisim and Cancer but many lesser illnesses also.

  • Great video. But why does the academy promote plant-based nutrition and demonize animal foods when it’s partly sponsored by the beef industry?

    Another thing. Using ‘ideologically loaded’ language like ‘globalism’ makes you sound like a conspiracy nut, detracting from your important message, IMO. Anyway, great job at getting the truth out there, love your videos.

  • Hey Aubrey, just wanted to throw it out that according to Dr. Rhonda Patrick, farm raised salmon are colored WITH astaxanthin… that’s great news.. but doesn’t solve to problem of them being fed corn and fish meal

  • You mention Mooji.. I love him, he is such amazing, and I could say my live changed a lot since I met him first.. I use to go to Portugal evertime I can to be in silent retreat with Mooji

  • You know, it’s one thing to forgive. It’s quite another to let someone get away with this just because “we don’t know her story, she may have CHILDREN at home, maybe she is here ILLEGALLY, maybe she’s afraid”. Blame her and judge her? Yes! What if she was texting when she hit your kid? Drunk?What if this isn’t the only crime she’s committed? What if she has committed other hit and runs and other families are looking for her? What if finding her would actually help other victims? What if finding her and calling her to task for what she has done would actually help HER turn her life around if such is the case? Do you really believe that if she is illegal and frightened with kids of her own, how is it ok that she left yours for dead? Forgiveness is a wonderful thing but downplaying the seriousness of a crime is not.

  • I did shift from being a sugar and carb addict to a keto diet cold turkey! And WOW! What an amazing difference! The best part is the increased brain power! Then comes the increase in energy! I LOVE that I no longer crave sugar and carbs! Yes, the weight loss is fascinating, as well, but it’s not my reason for going keto.
    Because I did a lot of research before I started, I knew to increase my B vitamins, as well as sodium, potassium, and magnesieum to minimize keto “flu” symptoms, and it worked! The transition was smooth, and I’ve never looked back.

  • Only 16k views….this should be required to be an adult. This is absolutely top notch information for life. These men are so valuable.

  • Today I went to the store and one of my item I want to buy was sugar free type cool whip. Yep it read sugar free, but when I looked at the ingredients the very first ingredient was high fritose corn surge. OMG �� how deceitful. From the same store they carry their own line of organic products, I bought a free range organic chicken broth. On the label for it the ingredients had no chicken in it at all. What it had was organic chicken flavor. Another OMG �� who ever heard of organic free range chicken flavor. I’m calling the number on the carton on Tuesday to voice my concern due to the deceptive titles on their packaging. By the way the store is Krogers and Frys.

  • I agree But everything turns to sugar. It’s not just in sweets. sugaristhedevil.net I would love one day to be a guest on your show. My story is helping people. I came from having health problems like type2 diabetes, high blood pressure etc. today I help people. Sugar is an addiction, Its evil that’s what is killing us. It’s a silent killer.

  • Why does Tom look so dreadful? Closeups show poor complexion and heavy bags under his eyes. He has a skeleton face. Did he just have surgery or perhaps he underwent an aggressive cleans or does he have allergies? He doesn’t look well. I know someone that has this appearance and you have to stay 5 feet back when he talks because of horrible halitosis. If you look close and examine this poor soul, you can see that his ears seem to be inflamed. Good news is, Turmeric helps reduce inflation. This could help. I like how he does’t interupt.

  • This is why I like having wireless buds, I can listen to interviews like this awesome one while at work! ��
    Another great interview!

  • This episode was great! Two smart, reasonable, open people, having an unscripted, interesting and very useful conversation. Thank you for this one!

  • what an amazing and inspiring HEROS JOURNEY. Thanks JJ and Tom for this one, her triumph over what happened is inspiring AF, I won’t lie I shed quite a few tears hearing her story.

  • I’m an INFJ, We can pick up on energies. I took LSD 1 time at a festival and had a very interesting experience.
    It was as if everyone was connected but I could see it… our Souls where channeling through these tunnels always crossing paths like a figure 8 sometimes and going in no set direction, but instead directions what set based on the encounters we have.

  • It’s because it’s Very Addictive and causes “Diseases that way all the food Companies/Corp’s that are also stock holders in Big Pharma and Hospitals make Money on the consumers/People when they get sick Heart disease, Diabetes, Obesity and Many others! It’s one of the Most “Inhumane” things i have ever heard of. Also remember that many of our Senators and Congressmen know of the “Lethal Dangers of sugar” and still support only Legislation for the Co’s & Corps to help them with “Profits/Dividends ” ( Their (Sen. & Congressmen) campaign donors, hence their motive ) and do next to Nothing to protect the People/consumers. Making a profit is fine but they don’t have to be “Greedy Murderers!!!”

  • I always listen to your videos for my weekend work commute, but I’m glad this was not one of those. I had to take down notes which I would not have done if I was driving. I learned so much in one video. Thank you for featuring her and for opening my world to these powerful and inspiring people.

  • Does anyone know if his grandchildren are still with them, in the time of this virus. I know they were taken care of them at the beginning.

  • Great and important conversation. The SAD causes a baseline level of extreme inflammation and vascular (endothelial) damage. To echo his message.. fancy drugs and tx are not going to save us. We must face the truth and eat organic plant based Whole foods. Exercise. Get outside. Find a hobby you love. Let food be thy medicine…

  • I so agree with Dr McDougal that covid19 has been the comet we’ve been waiting for. It’s taught us what the real values are in life. Thank you, Dr McD, this was superb!

  • I don’t know how I would feel if a doctor looked me in the eyes and told me that the best thing to do was to let go of one the most important persons in my life, my son and he ended up surviving, Isn’t that the worse medical error possible? Would’t it be my social duty to warn everyone about what really happened? Wouldn’t that help prevent future mistakes? I don’t know but here’s the big one: how long would it take for the words ‘attempted murder’ to stop harassing me, would they ever? A powerful interview, thank you.

  • If she was an illegal immigrant she has no business in the country in the first place.
    She hit him and drove off, she committed a crime and deserves to be punished.
    Why would you even make her being an illegal an excuse? That’s the exact reason why people ate against illegal immgrants

  • As with most research, its hard to control for mood eating and emotional eating. So many kids and adults eat to substitute for an emotionally available parent or partner. It is one big factor for substance use, when people trust others to care in a consistent reliable way,

    It would be really interesting to learn if those brought up in emotionally negligent or abusive environments can work successfully in these programs. My guess is that many of your subjects feel cared for and special to be in the program. By the way, I am a psychologist and have worked with patients who eat for immediate relief (especially for those who were abruptly weaned and not given pacifiers when needed).

  • The Oura ring Moments app features a guided 4-7-8 7 minute session doing 8 cycles interesting that Dr. Andrew Weil says this is too much

  • 25:35 exactly! This is a turning point in time, we must embrace the truth (the harm animal agriculture has on the earth and human health and poor innocent animals) and work hard to turn back the clock.

  • As an Ayurvedic Practitioner I have been teaching detox classes using plant based food for 6 years and I must say I am exhausted from trying to help people that are looking for an herbal pill or tea instead of changing their diet. I just cant get through to them…

  • Great Interview. I love JJ Virgin. She has overcome so much……created beauty from ashes…….Her tips are simple and easy to follow. At the end of the day it is all in the mindset….

  • “How about the possibility that the mental state energy of a person preparing food is gonna effect the quality of the food that you eat”

    YES! It’s why I usually don’t cook around my roommates

    @ 24:36

  • I am 76 vegan since over 40 years. I haven’t ever heard of this starch diet. I was doing research for my grandson 6 who was diagnosed with type one diabetes, and I’m looking for parents, that have use this diet,that have results with lowering the insulin
    plus keeping the blood sugar in range.

  • Very interesting comments on mindset that I didn’t expect. Especially with being able to forgive yourself, this process is amazing. Thanks JJ and Tom!

  • if you breathe really loudly (opposite of what Dr. Weil suggest), and keep it up and really try… You can give yourself a windburn. I wouldn’t recommend trying it. There definitely is something to the idea of moderation, even with air.

  • AJ, thank you so much for all the amazing interviews! If you won´t mind I´d love to request you doing an interview with PCRM’s adorable Dr. Hana Kahleova too, that would be so amazing as she´s such a great and well-spoken Dr. in the wfpb community as well, and somehow gets way too less invited here on youtube to share her knowledge I think.

  • That’s really sad when she brought up the husband and how he started feeling threatened. My significant other would never do that to me but my family will. They start teasing me when I’m on a “diet”. When I feel better, when I lose weight. When i decline all the sugar they offer me when I decline all the carb filled foods they offer me. They want me to feel bad for what they feel is me trying to seem better than them. And I don’t I just respectfully decline. They try and gang up on me to tease me about dieting. Meanwhile we have a history of type 2 diabetes and overweight people. Oh well..I stay strong and stick to my guns. I don’t try and give ANYONE lesson. It’s my personal choice to give up breads, pastas, sugars, and alcohol. If someone declines alcohol or a cigarette nobody bats an eye. But if you start saying no to sugar or carbs all of a sudden people feel threatened. Well we better start declining sugar the same way we would pass on drugs!!!

  • Thank you so much for this!! I was nearly in years hearing the story of her son. This is really powerful stuff! And what’s she’s said here about forgiveness is hitting home really hard and extremely helpful given I’m struggling with that too here. Thank you so much for these videos and thank you JJ Virgin!! Bless all of you ����������������

  • “Forgiveness is an active process.” So true.

    How does revenge change anything? We are so apt to blaming others for bad outcomes. Some circumstances are out of our control however, what we control �� is our response. We are not victims.

    “Let it all out until there’s nothing left.”

    Hurt is internalized and grows in proportion to our personal dialogue.

    Our brain changes whereby we eventually house hurt as our identity.

  • Trust me, this sort of corruption is all throughout academia. Some paradigms are so locked into peoples’ minds that if you bring any questioning to the table you’ll be seen as an idiot, or crazy, or both.

  • Words can not describe how AWESOME this interview was. I thought I was watching a video that would help me with my sugar detox. I got an interview that changed my entire life! Sooo thankful!!!

  • Great Interview. I love JJ Virgin. She has overcome so much……created beauty from ashes…….Her tips are simple and easy to follow. At the end of the day it is all in the mindset….

  • God bless.

    The sugar lobby is fucking terrible. Remember the “low fat” craze of the 80s/90s? Brought to you by Sugar/Corn companies.

  • Carbs don’t make you fat, fats don’t make you fat. Eating them together make you fat. Cake, pbj, ice cream, grilled cheese. Buttered toast with jam.

  • How can you really understand and write a book about sugar addiction if you don’t really like sugar??? I would like to hear from an expert that was a sugar junky and managed to totally transform that lifestyle

  • Dr M speaks truth. Still no money in prevention and Big pharma still driven by profit (as all respected vegan/plant based MDs knew and called out pre virus) no flu vaccine has large third independent public studies to show efficacy and safety. SARS/CoV2 will be no diff. It will be worth billions per country/trillions globally. It’s tied to Big tech via contact tracing. All big tech cos CEOS have been called (AGAIN) by lawmakers/congress for shady business practices…but yet so many in vegan community now think govt/big pharma/politicians incentivized by big pharma/big tech are all trustworthy. Sure. How many dying of or with the virus? Many why’s, hows and independent studies on stats, cause, symptoms etc not being done but much fear being sold:
    Medicare paying hosp (hurting for profits since virus) more for Covid patients:
