  • Omg terrible recipes in this videos!!! Blueberries with corn and onion?? Give me a break. Just buy a plain white yoghurt put some cereals into it, a cup of blueberries and a spoon of honey and you cant be happier:-)

  • Hey there, have you heard of BellyFATtack? Simply google it. There you will find a valuable free video by a well-known qualified dietitian revealing the right way to eliminate extra fat. It made it possible for Toni to burn his tummy fat. I will probably give it a try. I hope it works for you as well.

  • The nutrients of the berries will degrade if you are going to cook it. So it’s pretty much defeats the purpose when it comes to health benefits of the berries.

  • Why is vitamin K a thing on these vitamin-list. Humans with a healthy colon Fauna can produce it themselves. Or rather the bacteria living inside them. The problem is eating too much industrial meat with high amounts of antibiotics kills these, so humans need to eat vitamin k. What a tragic Ironie

  • I think regular bell peppers overwhelmingly beat kiwi in a nutrient/energy matchup. For example, 100g of bell pepper has 128 mg of vitamin C.

  • My parents own 40 acres of wild blueberry fields in Maine. Often the ground is covered in them and they used to rake them up. But we haven’t been there in over 10 years and we now live in Florida.

  • these recipies are pretty lacking.. what happened to just blueberries in oats or cereal? I don’t know about you but I enjoy drinks without berries floating in them that I can conveniently choke on.

  • Holy Shit! this is some of your best writting. If I wasn’t familiar with you I’d almost think it was an Onion story! I’m still laughing!

  • I think regular bell peppers overwhelmingly beat kiwi in a nutrient/energy matchup. For example, 100g of bell pepper has 128 mg of vitamin C.

  • “The darker the berry the sweeter the juice” an old adage. Any fruit or veggie that is dark, is extremely healthy. The old folks always knew what they were talking about.

  • Do u ever eat the peel of the kiwi too? I’ve heard there are also health benefits to eating the peel like more fiber and vitamins I think

  • Blueberries that are actually blue on the inside does exist! I live in Sweden and the blueberries that i pick myself in the forest, or the most common ones to buy in the supermarkets are ALOT smaller, darker and the juice is pretty much impossible to remove from you clothes. The blueberries you shoved in this video and the kind that the rest of the world think of when they hear the world blueberries, suedes call ‘American blueberries’. The different kinds also taste very different and I personally think that the American kind does not taste like blueberries at all. Although I have no idea if the different kind is better for you than the other.

  • I eat about a half cup every morning with a half cup of plain greek yogurt now for over a year, it’s great for reducing belly fat too

  • The Dr. Oz show. Are you a medical doctor. What qualifications do you hold? Are you a medically approved dietician? Many of the people who give dietary advice on say YouTube actually are medically trained, qualified doctors who happen to take a special interest in diet and holistic approach to peoples INDIVIDUAL situations. I think they would tell you that your full of….. Let’s leave it at that. You talk garbage.

  • Ah. I get it now. Kiwis can help you loose weight because with all the benefits it offers, it is a low-calorie per high in everything else that assists in tackling your day instead of hindering. Also an excellent “cleanse/detox” edible because of the Fiber, Anti-oxidants and that other thing you mentioned. I think I would struggle with it only because of texture and I hate seeds/legumes (my only exception is french cut green-beans…. with a little butter). Which begs the question. If I were to omit a kiwis’ core and it’s seeds and skin and only eating the sweet and fruity part or mixing that isolated section in some blended smoothie concoction, am I getting exactly what you showed in that diagram when it is compared to other fruits? Is there a way I can find out exactly what I am benefiting from specifically after I omit the Kiwis’ core, seeds and skin?

  • IDK why I’m just now seeing this video, but now the kiwi objects I’ve seen in previous videos make sense. LOL I acually love kiwis, but rarely buy them. I will now!

  • if we apply you logic then guavas must be “Superfood” Guavas has more than 2 times vitamin c than kiwi fruit.

  • Blueberry antioxidants are absorbed into milk fat and so they shouldn’t be consumed together. Also, eating them with walnuts apparently increases your absorption of their antioxidants by over 400%.

  • I’m born in the very northern parts Sweden. I have always heard that cloudberries is a “Superfruit”.

    So I made a little fast search on Cloudberries vs Kiwi.

    Pros Kiwi:

    Vitamin B3, B4

    Sodium

    Potassium

    carbohydrates

    Pros Cloudberries:

    Vitamin A, B1

    Iron

    Calcium

    Zinc

    Omega 3

    Beta carotene

    Fat

    Fibers

    Protein

  • Excellent Video! Excuse me for butting in, I would love your thoughts. Have you tried Tabblarny Belly Principle (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for discovering a 2 minute trick to lose 1 pound of belly fat every 72 hours minus the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my friend at very last got astronomical success with it.

  • Kiwis are among my favorite fruits since I can’t eat fruit with red pigmentation on them. A really rare allergic reaction in Westerners, more common in Asians but only a handful of us have them:(
    Essentially can’t eat apples (but can eat green ones), peaches, cherries, etc. Oddly enough, strawberries or watermelons don’t cause an allergic reaction.

  • I love blueberries! and with all these super foods I eat, why does my brother think I’m going to get cancer because I don’t drink coffee? I eat tons of super foods that he doesn’t…

  • I love your superfood videos! They are great!

  • Hmm, I haven’t…but the blueberries I do get are organically grown (I don’t know if that’d make a difference), but I do remember once going out to the country in Mississippi where my mom lived, and I had a wild berry. I can’t remember what kind of berry it was, but it was very sweet, and bled red; maybe that’s it. I’ll keep that in mind, I may try and look around for a farmer’s market or maybe start a garden. Thank you! ^_^
