144The Protein DebateHow Much Protein Should You Consume for Optimal Health?


Video taken from the channel: Ben Pakulski Muscle Intelligence

The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for protein is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight a day. But trendy high-protein diets such as Paleo suggest taking in far more, making it easy to wonder if it’s too much of a good thing. Here, experts pick camps (and outline how to make sure you’re choosing healthy protein sources ). Yes, there is definitely such a thing as eating too much protein. Experts say that the pitfalls of excessive protein include dangerous or even life threatening conditions such as hyperaminoacidemia (excess amino acids), hyperammonemia (excess ammonia), hyperinsulinemia (excess insulin), not to mention uncomfortable symptoms like nausea and.

While protein is essential for muscle growth, satiety, which helps with weight loss, and bone health, there is such a thing as getting too much protein. So how much is too much? Everyone’s daily protein needs are different, based on their weight and activity level. Whatever the diet and whatever the claim, there’s a good chance that it is, indeed, too good to be true.

In recent years, high protein diets are among the most popular, whether the protein is consumed as a supplement (protein shakes for body builders!) or simply a larger than usual portion of a balanced diet (such as The Zone, Atkins or Paleo. Consuming too much protein on a regular basis can cause intestinal discomfort and indigestion. People can typically consume 2 g of protein per kg of their body weight daily, long-term, without any.

If you take in too little protein, you lose body protein. If you take in too much, you just burn it as calories.” Heymsfield is a professor of medicine at. Other researchers say too much protein can cause nausea, cramps, headaches, fatigue and bloating. Dehydration is also a risk when you eat too much protein. Pipitone says if you increase protei.

Protein is one of the three macronutrients, along with fat and carbohydrate. These are essential for the optimal functioning of the body. However, too much protein — especially with no fat or carbs. Consuming too much protein might not sound like a bad thing, but it is important to understand that a ketogenic diet is very high fat (70-75 percent), very low carbohydrate (5 percent), and moderate in protein (20-25 percent).

Some bodybuilders get up 40 percent of their diet from protein, 50 percent from fat, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. But there is such a thing as too much protein, and to my surprise, Muth says that’s more the issue. “Given its importance, of course we.

That is because research shows that consuming dietary protein at levels above the recommended daily allowance (RDA) during energy deprivation may actually attenuate skeletal muscle loss by affecting the intracellular regulation of muscle anabolism and proteolysis [22].

A common claim heard in fitness circles is that the body can absorb only 20 to 30 g of protein in a single feeding.This belief is often used in support of eating protein-rich meals every few hours throughout the day.

Because protein is an inefficient source of energy and only so much protein can be used to rebuild muscle tissue, it is clearly a waste of time to eat more than 1.5 grams of protein for each pound of body weight.

  • My question is how do they justify people’s who eat keto style in northern regions throughout history. These guys act like we have had fruits and vegetables available all year around throughout history.

  • Dude! The entire podcast was lit.. my only observation is all this valuable information, rich in content for a great life, but dude, the guy speaks SUPER fast.. i has going back to absorb what he was explaining. Still worth it.

  • This is one guy I can not believe, I’d rather take my advice from people like Ted Naiman,
    But thanks for the podcast
    Also meat is the easiest thing to digest so he got it wrong there,
    And if the longevity project from 2018 showed us anything it was that centenarians all ate differently and lifestyle was more important

  • Bruh literally plants make carbohydrates through photosynthesis. LMAO. How could he say no plants have fat and carb at the same time? Has he ever heard of nuts?

  • They want people to be sick it’s about money pharmaceuticals companies pay doctors a bonus to prescribed medication vegan is healthier common sense the meat is full of steroids those poor animals treated so cruelly it’s a billion dollar industry

  • This guy is a cherry picker,unfounded unproven.,more research proves lack of the buildi g blocks ; good animal protein causes multiple problems in elderly,i can prove it with by visiting any care home where protien mudcle systesis is terribe due to tea and biscuit breakfasts

  • When i was at school teens uni. I trained and trained. Did i grow?? no

    When did i grow. When i hit 30-40g per meal 6 meals a day.

  • But dude…thats why maybe your not massive. Athletic yes. Huge mass monster bodybuilder? No..

    And those bodybuilders grow on protien

  • The key here is vegetables. Whatever type of dietary approach you make you must eat plenty of vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, sprouts, kale etc. Meat in the diet isn’t a problem as long as you include these. Eat lots of meat with fries, grains, sugar and seed oils then you’re inviting trouble. Whatever you eat just eat plenty of greens with it.

  • No meat of any kind and no milk, then what should I eat?
    I started absolutely vegetarian diet, my brain almost exploded.
    I have got sick and had no energy in the gym. I ate any vegetable, you name it. I was munching on vegetables all day long, they didn’t give me any energy. My juice maker was running all day long.
    You are wrong this approach.
    We can eat anything, but very little.
    If we exclude processed food, reduce fat, carb, salt, we will be fine.
    If you are thinking about animal welfare or if you are concerned about animal right, then you have different audience.
    I put human being first, because millions of human being killed during the wars, we must think about them first not dogs and cows.
    There are thousands of doctors and everyone of them have their own diet plan and recommendation. Why isn’t there any standard for the people to follow.
    We as consumers bombarded by all kind of information and this is adversely affecting our health psychologically.

  • Hi sir my body weight 65 kg how much I need daily protein intake plz sir Ans my question
    My daily routine 1 hour gyming weight training and 10 minutes cardio
    My height 5’7
    My body weight 65 kg
    My age 34

  • Meat eaters are zapping our oxygen and killing animals, oceans, coral, fish and our planet. We need to fight to make this planet earth for plant-eaters vegan or we have max maybe 30 years before oxygen is zapped by animal production industries methane gases. Now 65 percent of world methane gas pollutants. Use google earth and to your calculations, soon tipping to 68 percent. We need to shut down all animal production industries and change them over to growing plants. Elon Musk and Sir Richard Branson know we will be doomed otherwise, that’s the main reason they are looking for other planets to survive on. All the vegan Billionaires will have a way to exit if they can’t change or stop animal production industries. We all must help, right here right now, we can, everyone who goes vegan or plant-based is an immediate win.

  • What the health set me on my whole-food vegan journey as well! I went vegan for the animals 1 month before and I lost 25 kg since that ^.^ healthier than I’ve ever been! no knee/lower back pain, high blood pressure down.
    Thank you!

  • I learned this years ago in biology, but it stuck with me. I recently started heavy training, and as soon as you get into that world, you just get bombarded with all this nonsense about how you need insane amounts of protein to build muscle, and it can seem so convincing because basically everyone is saying it, but please resist the pressure.
    Your body won’t benefit from anything beyond 1,6g of protein per kg of body weight a day, and every gram of protein is a health risk, so try to strike the balance between risk and benefit.
    I stick to diet only, with no supplements, and I get about 140g of protein a day, which is plenty for me, and I am getting good progress in the gym.

    Don’t listen to people like Dwayne Johnson, who eats more than 400g of protein a day. It’s not healthy, and he’s not getting any benefits from 250g of that protein, which then becomes an unnecessary health risk.

  • Moral of the story: Do your own research. I’ve been vegan for a week now and I’ve lost 5 pounds and I feel amazing! Starting a channel soon. Everyone is different do your own research!

  • “The Doctors” is such a vapid, hideous shit show. Firstly, having Dr. Davis sitting in the audience and not on the panel was unfair. What kind of a debate is that? I think the best debaters for WFPB would be Dr. Klaper, Dr Greger, Dr Ornish, Dr. Barnard, and Dr. Davis…. Dr. McDougal is pretty good, too. But if I had to pit a vegan doc against the meat industry, it would probably be Dr. Greger.

  • Dr Davis did an amazing job. It’s obvious that people only want to hear good things about their bad habits. Thank you Dr Davis!!! ��

  • It’s simple, meat is protein with zero fiber on it, no phytochemicals and no antioxidants. Besides, meat isnt digested well compared to the protein in plants with fibers on it. The thing is, even carnivores never “binge-eat” meat. Look at the Lions, they dont eat meat 3x a day! And how come humans eat meats more than thrice a day aside from the fact that humans arent carnivores? Animal protein is a poison, and the meat industry wants you to be addicted with that kind of poison.

  • Vegan lifestyle and plant-based lifestyle has saved my life simple as that eating meat kills thousands of people every year with bacteria diseasesWe are eating things that we should not be eating we need to go back to our roots going vegan and eating healthy I am in my 30s and I have people coming up to me saying you’re a little bit young for having four kids when I tell them my age they to mine and said must be something you’re eating and I turn round and said yes I am vegan and they face just looks at me and they say what
    And I say yes my oldest son is 16 they said no that’s not true and I guess yes I’m vegan and I have a 16 years old are 14 years old two little girls one is eight years old and one is coming up to 4 years old
    I am in my 30s I have asthma a collapsed lung and heart issues
    Since I’ve came vegan and plant base it has saved my life it has saved my little girl‘s life as well i’m allergic to dairy they have to understand this is the best diet and the best health for the future it’s not classed as a diet I don’t like people calling it a diet but some people accept it being called that It is good for the future is good for families and it’s healthy for our planet

  • To much protein equals more calories! Regardless off what you eat, if you eat more than you burn, even protein, LOL, equals more body fat!

  • That’s actually a pretty terrible debate… Why is he defending “sugar” without mentioning the difference between complex carbs and refined sugar? oof

  • I didn’t see the original debate, just what was shown here, but I think there is some confusion going on or else this video is simply confusingly put together.. I think that no doctor in the world would argue against the fact that refined sugar is causing or contributing to diabetes, obesity, heart problems etc. That is at least what Dr. Lustig means with „sugar“. Look up „The bitter Truth about Sugar on YouTube. He means the refined sugar. Specially the fructose (which gets metabolized the same way as alcohol in the body) The fructose from fruits in it’s natural form is no problem though, since it still has all the fibers, vitamins and minerals etc which help the body to digest it properly. Dr. Lustig also says this in this presentation.
    Normal carbs, which are found in a whole food plant based diet will probably not cause any disease at all.

  • I’ve always heard different scientists say “protein can cause aging”, but they never explain WHY it causes aging….. So it’s nice to see a video that actually explains why excess protein could speed up aging.

  • Doc, I understand the frustration.  As a board member of my local hospital, I have tried to share this information with the providers and also my fellow board members.  They look at me like I’m  from another planet, and what I’m saying must be crazy.  I just learned that a hospital 50 miles away recently implemented a WFPBD, and offer classes and diabetic teaching, so I’ll be visiting them next week to see if they have any suggestions.  Their stated goal is to become the healthiest city in Texas.

  • “Animals are not needed for our survival anymore because of substitutes”

    Actually… vitamin B12, vitamin D3, heme iron (Fe+++), docosahexaenoic acid YOU CAN ONLY GET FROM ANIMAL MEAT AND PRODUCTS

  • AMEN!!!! WELL SAID!!!!


    MY TREADMILL TRAINING ALONG WITH VEGAN LIFE STYLE IS WHY I HAVE SUCCESS WHILE REVERSING my 52 year old formerly stressed out body… which has today (Jan.5/18) lost 55.2 pounds since NOV.1/17 HalleluJAH:)

    I started with 300 pounds on NOV.1/17 became VEGANI eat 3 times dailyNO SNACKSpresently about 1500 calories/day recently ((after starting with only consuming about 1200 calories a day)) & now walk uphill about 7 km daily twice daily once just before lunch and again just before dinner AND CONTINUE TO LOSE about 25 pounds every MONTHI am presently 244.8 pounds

    I am luxCRUSADER at “”… soon I’ll be incorporating weight training and interval running after hopefully losing another 25 pounds next month…

    NO REFINED SUGARS / SALTS & GRAINS:) NO HUNGER PAINS:) I eat just enough to get me to the next workout which is just before the subsequent meal…

    I also carefully monitor my sodium intake and presently have cut out all dehydrating beverages like tea/ coffee I HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER APPETITE AND WATER INTAKE:)

    Basically OATMEAL/“et al” for breakfast….
    Little bit of high Fiber/starchy food with ALOT of FRESH GREEN VEGETABLES for LUNCH….fruits with nuts OR almond butter spread on VEGAN BREAD with frozen raspberries OR low caloric soup for dinner “etc”:)

    So far I have easily lost 55.2 pounds in 65 days:) 9 inches off belt line:) WHILE continuing to enjoy my present leisurely daily 14 km treadmill strolls:)

    Lastbut NOT LEASTI have FULLY EMBRACED THE TRUE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST to have a PERFECT STRESS FREE LIFE:D so I don’t eat emotionally anymore:)


  • But also everyone will vary a little bit within proportion.. some people who function higher metabolically will require more protein.. as instead of 0.4 grams maybe 0.6 or 0.8

    Also for argument sake.. assuming someone weighs 150.. it be likely safe for them to ingest 100-120 grams of protein without any damage.. I think the negative side comes into play when they are topping 150-180 grams of protein daily

    Also for discussion sake I’d say I was the uppear range of protein intake an my kidneys showed low level creatinine leveal as it was not excreting allot of waste.. an also my kidney flirtation was good

  • This sizzling plant-based nutrition debate created so much controversy YouTube took it down. But with this exclusive re-upload you can finally see these medical figures thrash out their arguments. What is the best diet? And is meat really killing you?

  • Why are people bothered about what other people think. If the diet you have isn’t making you feel like crap, you’re at a healthy weight, and you don’t have any chronic issues, just do what you do and stop trying to force your ideology onto others. The general advice seems to be to eat a balanced diet, mostly plants. That’s good enough for me, and I feel healthy for doing exactly that. I don’t believe that meat eaters are all dying off early, or else they all have chronic illnesses after the age of 70. On the ethical side… Well, that’s a personal choice.

  • I am all the way with the plant based diet doctors. I have tried their diet for close to a year and it works. I am going back on this diet.

  • although I agree with your message, you have the same problem as 80% of youtube videosYour introduction is way too long and the music makes me sick. Will not watch another “TRTAH”

  • All the vegans in the comments be like “I’ve been plant based for x months and never felt so good”

    Yeah, come back to us in five years and let’s see how how you’re doing. Also, perhaps you have the digestion to process the diet of a cow but most people don’t, particularly when their gut microbiome has been all but wiped out and their adrenals are not great.

    Long term vegans are in denial at the dangers of their diets. B12, Zinc and EFA deficiencies are rampant in that community but everyone turns a blind eye because they are dogmatic about veganism. Look at Fully Raw Kristina and Tim VanOrden (Running Raw ) on YouTube now and how they were a few years ago. Both are emaciated, eyes sunken, clearly, but are egged on in the comments and told they look great by the sycophants.

    Now the rebuttal might be that the Carnivore Diet is equally as problematic, but is it? People on it sure seem a lot healthier and so that suggests, at the very least, that deficiencies aren’t anywhere near as much of an issue on low carb diets compared with vegan ones.

    One thing everyone seems to agree on is stay away from processed foods and oils and would seem almost everyone is also agreeing that fat and carbs together is a match made in hell and does more damage to the body than either are capable of on their own and so if you have to eat a high carb diet, best to eat fat/oils separately.

    We’re omnivores but yet “experts” all seem to focus on their favored nutrient / food group. Each cherry picking studies to back up their position. Maybe grandma had it right all along and a balanced diet devoid of junk is what we should be eating.

  • Wow this guys a quack, must have large cult following. He compares those on traditional SAD diet (you know, the worst diet in the world) with those on a vegan diet, no wait, not just a vegan diet, they had a lifestyle change including meditation etc, cutting out the processed food. He then tries to claim it was the plant based diet that caused the good result. The clearly doesn’t provide that conclusion, by his own statements. I guess if one doesn’t use reason and logic one can believe this quack

  • this is harmful to the vegan movement because it causes to much confusion in people if average intelligence and lower than average intelligence people and the meat and dairy industry knows this.

  • First and foremost, I am a vegan for ethical reasons, and that is something, where no doctor has to disagree with another doctor. When it comes to health, however, doctors are not agreeing. So, who do you believe? I trust my own common sense. Eating flesh from animals that have been injected with hormones plus everything an animal went through to finally land on your plate, is not something I consider healthy.

  • I admire your dedication! If it isn’t for you veganism would never gain such popularity! We need more awakened doctors like you. You have so many supporters, because you save lives!

  • I’ve done a ton of research and what I’m finding is people are basically making all these so called myths off of body builders the cheaters of the industry that why the have to Fucken eat so much there on steroids so it life or death on there end because they have like no choice to eat every two hours it’s common sense do your Fucken research everyone is different people need to stop thinking things are going to come over night wrong

  • I went from eating meat, to only eating fish, to only eating dairy and to finally becoming 100% VEGAN.Vegan since 2017. Feel so much better!!

  • I hate when Adult People act and disagree like children out of order ��
    How can the “Meat Eaters” defend a Diet where the proof of Death �� and sickness is al around them especially here in the western world?

  • Eggs, Sardines, and butter………….. these are all i have left to remove from my diet to be “vegan”. I am pretty damn healthy!

  • I just watched two videos where the “”medical INDUSTRY”” was promoting eating meat protein and bad mouthing veggie protein….That is bad ALLOPATHIC stupid advice. I HATE THE MEDICAL “”FOOL”” INDUSTRY. A vegan diet is best. This video is right on target. Watch Charlotte Gerson on YouTube. Cancer can be cured 90% of the time with a veggie diet…avoiding meat…avoiding sugar…avoiding animal fat…avoiding junk fake food…avoiding poison fake medicine called chemotherapy….drinking lots of home made veggie juices ( especially carrot juice )…avoiding processed food……WATCH CHARLOTTE GERSON ON YOUTUBE. The ALLOPATHIC fake medical INDUSTRY and their poison pill prescriptions are very dangerous to your health. Also ➡️➡️➡️The FDA is a criminal organization in my view. Also…the processed food industry took tons of fiber out of our diets. A lot less fiber causes a lot more disease. We need a lot of fiber. There is no fiber in meat. We live in a corrupt, sinful, ignorant society that is chock full of bad ALLOPATHIC advice.

  • NOTHING can ever beat 100% plantbased/ VEGAN lifestyle and diet. No logic in eating animal corpses, secretions, blood, eggs and fat!!! Dr. Garth Davis vegan ROCKSTAR. ����

  • The end video there was interesting Robert Atkins, Look at the state of that fat pig and that’s what you get for eating what he calls the Atkins diet. It was all about money for Then you take a look at Dr esselstyn and what he does for a living. Saves lives And if you compare the two which one looks more healthy.

  • Excellent video. Plant based is the way to health. I’m 66 years young and in prime health. No retirement for me. I will love my life, my God and the food He created “In the beginning”, for me to eat. I left the animal food behind and all my health problems melted away years ago. You are spot on with posting this video. Thank you for your YouTube channel.

  • I am grateful for those who keep uploading those films to let people know the truth and having the chance to change their diet and see the truth.

  • That so-called show is a travesty and the “actors” are clearly lackeys to the meat industry. “Doctors” like these are clearly concerned that people going vegan will cut down on their customer base and curtail their income.

  • my grandfather is 88, grew up on a farm and during his entire life he has drank 2-3 gallons of whole milk per week, has bacon and eggs for breakfast and for dinner he eats only meat and potatoes. he also drinks beer during the day, whiskey at night and smokes throughout the day. still plays golf 2x per week. point is that you can be sick no matter what you do.

  • There are plenty of real life examples of illnesses, cancers, diseases being managed or reversed through a whole plant based diet. Surely, these studies of meat and dairy are industry funded and do more harm to us physically and emotionally.

  • All you have to do is watch the commercials of the show. It tells you who sponsors the show. Just watch it for a week. Make a list, then research. I switch to a plantbase diet and I feel better. Blood pressure is better. i can go for a 5 mile walk now.

  • I weigh 155. Im getting lean at like 12% bodyfat. I consume 346 grams of protein from chicken, steak, and isolate protein. Idk if its safe on me. But i am trying to get to 10%

  • Correct me if I’m wrong….but dr Davis is the only surgeon there….he’s the only one actually seeing patients with these type of problems…..not like these TV celebrity docots….for christ sake one is a dermatologist

  • Plant based for over 2 month now… thanks to what the health I know I’m new and getting used to this file style change but I’ve never felt so good and healthy the doctors on stage are just a big BS….

  • Hey Thomas, 58% of Protein can turn into Glucose, so isn’t it best to cut out Carbs completely. Doctors look at the Creatinine levels in the Urine & Blood to check for Chronic or Acute Kidney Disease. Creatinine comes from Creatine. Also when you combine this with age, weight, etc in an equation you can work out eGFR (estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate) Symptoms of CKD are weight loss/poor appetite, swollen ankles, Shortness of Breath, tiredness, blood in pee, peeing more than usual, especially at night.

  • The god people will NEVER believe science. They do not understand it. To borrow a phrase from the Jesus character in the bible, “Forgive them for they know not what they do…”.

  • Dr Lustig we are doing studies based on the detailed understanding of metabolic pathways. Here are the results. Garth Davis cranky face, strong emotional response, and demand to only look at the junk “science” from 70s.

  • Those doctors are just throwing around big words to try to sound smart. I’ve heard it, read it, etc multiple times that a wfpb diet has been proven many times over to be the best nutrition for our bodies!

  • Bullshit carbs and sugar are bad. I’ve been eating high amounts of animal fats for years. I use Pig lard to cook everything. Yet my weight skyrocketed when I mixed high carbs and sugar into my diet it just bloated me. Now that I’ve taken out grains, and most fruits and vegetables I’m a lean 170lbs at 5’10 and I feel way better.

  • No person should ever believe anyone that doesnt have your best interest in mind. “What the health” changed my life so dramatically it can only be believed by seeing it for yourself. You simply must try it yourself to believe it. If you dont try it…..then shut the fuck up. Everyone! Try it….or shut up. In my first 30 days i had weight loss, acne clearing up, libido increase, a dramatic decrease in inflamation, excessive energy increase, and an across the board mood improvement. This journey is alot of fun and it has brought my wife and i closer together in many ways. Try it!

  • Interesting. For me, eliminating sugar was absolutely key. Even eliminating fruit has helped. Veggies and meat all the way for me. Feeling great

  • too much protein…too much fat..too much seems that eating healthy foods in light to moderate amounts is the best for every thing.

  • I think:

    Oreo and coke vegans are ethical and not health vegans. They are not healthy, so using them as examples of health is stupid. Vegan does not automatically equal health. Duh.

    Carnivore, Atkins and fat based diets are for weight loss, not health (even those that claim it “cures” them of _ are misunderstanding how inflammation and gut health works ��‍♀️. They will eventually pay in poor health)

    Dr. Lustig is correct, fructose causes disease and people need to avoid processed foods like the plague

    A vegan/vegetarian whole food plant based diet is ideal, but just adding vegetables to your diet and cutting back on meat/eggs/dairy is extremely helpful

    Oils are up for debate, but no matter the oil (if you choose to use it) should be moderate, and used as a condiment… it’s still calorie heavy. I avoid coconut, but you do you

    Why these pompous asshole doctors are nit-picking shit is beyond me. Nothing in the documentary was incorrect, so just because these guys don’t like the delivery makes everything invalid?! No.

    I do like Dr. Lustig but he does drone and has a pretty big attitude. That doesn’t make him wrong ��‍♀️��‍♀️��‍♀️

  • Forget the health benefits for a second what about the poor animals and the effect on global warming and it’s cheaper to eat plant based

  • Japan eats large quantities of eggs and they love their meat. Perhaps the quality of the eggs and meats is the problem? The US love their highly processed foods.

  • Take it from a guy that used to drink kool aid by the gallons and was a moderate meat eater. Everything in moderation your body can tolerate. But in excess, those meats, processed foods, dairy, and fast food chain restaurants will catch up with you later on down the line. I changed my eating habits a couple of years ago with eating more salads and still ate meat. After watching those couple of documentaries, I completely stopped eating beef, pork, and chicken. My wife and I are Pescatarians. We eat Seafood and Veggies. Had my yearly blood work and EVERYTHING was in the normal range. Now even when I used to eat red meat and cheese, I purchased the better quality options, but knowing now that mass produced meat and dairy provides more harm than good, I’m out. All my protein, B-12, and other important vitamins and minerals are in Fish and Veggies. I don’t believe I’ll ever go full Vegan, but I know we don’t do dairy, eggs, or any other meats than seafood. The food taste so clean, and your body will show so much love in the bedroom and out of the bedroom from getting away from these foods their warning you about. We don’t eat out, we cook. So we control everything that we put in our body. Don’t get me wrong, we may eat a piece of chicken once a month or have a doughnut or cupcake every now and then, but 95% of our diet is strictly Seafood and Veggies. Just look at videos from people who live to be 90 to 100 years old and move like healthy 60 year olds. It’s the food. Your diet and lifestyle is everything. Food for though. Be blessed.

  • This kind of shouting and yelling debates are meaningless and I’m not giving them my time. I became vegan through a friend many years ago. He was not convincing me with veganism. He was just cool and I wanted to adapt this “coolness”. Over time I have found out and read much more about it and I’m a eating vegan since ten years without pointers or people who try to convince you. Just by health, science and very cool friends ��.

  • Speaking of colon cancer before going vegan I was at a high risk due to severe constipation that’s now gone on a vegan diet I now have bowel movements daily

  • Meat eaters are zapping our oxygen and killing animals, oceans, coral, fish and our planet. We need to fight to make this planet earth for plant-eaters vegan or we have max maybe 30 years before oxygen is zapped by animal production industries methane gases. Now 65 percent of world methane gas pollutants. Use google earth and to your calculations, soon tipping to 68 percent. We need to shut down all animal production industries and change them over to growing plants. Elon Musk and Sir Richard Branson know we will be doomed otherwise, that’s the main reason they are looking for other planets to survive on. All the vegan Billionaires will have a way to exit if they can’t change or stop animal production industries. We all must help, right here right now, we can, everyone who goes vegan or plant-based is an immediate win.

  • The doctors show stopped being good when Del Bigtree the producer who got an emmy left the show because he was forbidden from telling the truth about Vaccines. Everyone should go watch his movie Vaxxed. Same industry corruption that the meat and dairy industry do to make us sick. So do the pharma companies with their vaccines

  • You are amazingly smart. Top healers also.say do not ever use animal protein. End even using vegan protein people get enough from plantfoods. No need to supplement. I’m a serious athlete and don’t even supplement. All my
    Protein, vitamins, minerals come from organic plant foods.

  • Thank you! I’m 54 have T1 diabetes for 40 yrs. (full hysterectomy, severe accident, & recently breast cancer) My thoughts for “why” I got diabetesdiet, family stress, which caused a virus �� that eventually weakened immune system! For last 15 years have changed what I eat after much suffering. Finally have the best digestion after cutting fat & removal of cancer cells. No chemo or radiation �� When I do eat too much fat (yes nuts, seeds & beans are the worse) I have complications for several days afterwards. My food consumption is mostly fresh ripe fruit �� �� & fresh or cooked vegetables �� Much appreciation to everyone who is thoroughly explaining “why” about our food consumption throughout the world. Yes sugar mixed with processed oils & flour is destroying our bodies along with charred overly processed meats!

  • The Food and Drug Administration love Vegans. The food industry, drug industry and medical organizations will always encourage a Vegan diets because it increases their profits.

  • All these doctors on the show have back peddled since this aired. Kip and Garth are absolute hero’s and Grundy is an absolute marketing death machine

  • It’s up to us to change our lives. We have awesome people like Dr. Davis that can reach the masses but if I can help one person change I have made a contribution to help change the world.

  • It really makes me crazy when I hear comments that some bodybuilders sweat smells like ammonia. Protein levels that high are toxic in the extreme if they cause so much ammonia that is is coming out in the sweat. It also means the body is in emergency mode to balance PH. Normally the preferred metabolite is uric acid/urea. Ammonia is alkaline so is tolerated to compensate for insufficient minerals.

  • Thank you for showing this. It shows just how badly people (including doctors) want to defend the Standard American Diet. So why the high rates of cancer in our country? Why the high rates of obesity in our country? Why the high rates of heart attacks in our country? Cleary those definding the current diet standards are lying. And no one even wants to talk about the animals and the enviroment being destroyed. Compassion and ethics have totally left the room. Very sad.
