  • I want to go vegan because of my stomach issues ������ I have really bad IBS, chronic gastritis and I’m tired of living like this.

  • Hello Kristen! Love this video has help me a lot, but we also produce B12, so sometimes we dont need to have B12 suplements.
    Thanks you for your video!

  • Thank you so much for your information! I used to follow a vegetarian diet until I got pregnant with my first child and my husband insisted that I needed to eat meat. I’m going to improve my eating habits using your guidance.

  • Day 4 after reading Lessons from a Living Lemuria, thought I’d be feeling awesome and I’m feeling so sad and sluggish just need to get through the detox hump

  • I’m trying to be a vegan �� for over an year but I’m not ready to leave it. I adore that vegans amazing glowing skin and man their great looking hairs ����

  • Also the way meat is cooked using oils adds to bad health, even veg cooked in oil is gonna add to fat in arteries and not enough tests on people who ate just white organic meat that doesn’t have added hormones and drugs in.

  • This video should go world wild! Thank you SO much! The man who speaks is just doing great adding humor to it while telling the truth. Thank you for that hour. I chose to be vegan 5 years ago was unable to watch the part were animals are killed because I cried too much and that hour of video… i just wish everybody in the world could see it.

  • You are such a pretty lady! If I just had that movie star smile of yours I’d be happy. I’m in Alabama and if it’s not fried, breaded, butter, etc. I haven’t known how to do it. Your videos are so helpful, thank you.

  • I don’t know if you read the comments, but this is the most informative channel about this topic on youtube!
    Complex yet simple put, easy to understand and information to download!
    I can’t express how beneficial is it for me!
    Thank You!

  • Are vegan alternatives healthier than the real ones? I want to slowly go vegan or at least vegetarian for health purposes. I love that you addressed the cultural side of food!

  • Being a vegan is great if done correctly. But I also believe eating organic meat and organic dairy products ain’t bad. Especially if u eat the organs(liver and kidney in particular) they help and are good for your body. Native people all over the world ate like this forever and they were healthy till colonialism. Check out the work of Western Price. And we are omnivorous for a reason. Big Agriculture turned everything upside down with insane and sick farming systems. They ruined everything organic tho not just meat. Check out how Monsanto’s corn fucks up peoples health. And the environment isn’t affected by farming if done right. Hope everyone will be healthy and takes care of their body in the future.

  • I’ve subscribed to your channel purely for the dishes as I’m vegetarian but I must say I still find it difficult to find a balance as too much of everything can damage (e.g. oxalate) but then how much is too much when quite a few veggies/fruits might be in the same category?! Also, any advice on maybe a different breakfast?! Everyone eats different,which is fine, and your porridge/smoothies look amazing but I can’t eat it as I’m starving pretty quickly after eating it(not even 2hrs). Same with anything sweet. My meals must be savory as sweet as a main meal won’t cut it! Any books you might recommend? ��

  • I love the information. I’m planning to go Vegan. I will be the only member of my household going vegan. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can avoid falling back to my old way of eating?

  • Taking care of the evaporations from your sink and toilet will help you get you there. Soaps in these will do. Evaporating Incense and essentials oils will break the link between your nose, and those evaporations. That will help to break the dependancies with your waste.

  • I’ve been vegetarian since I was 7 years old cause my mum is vegetarian but now I’m 11 and I decided to become vegan a month ago and I decided to watch this video to help inspire me to become vegan and thank you sooo much for this video it’s pretty much canibilisim when you eat meat milk cheese and eggs cause were alllll animals and it’s so terrible how animals are murdered����

  • There will always be less vegans than meat eaters so they will still kill animals for meat so you guys are not really saving them im not hating on vegans its a good thing more people should do it, its disgusting how the animals are treated and im slowly getting put off meat the more i learn but i know if i go vegan i wont save 1 animal ill just help myself feel better knowing im not apart of the horrible shit they do to them

  • All the people saying “i went vegan over night”… How? Did you just throw away all the animal products that you had left over at home? Can’t say i support that.

  • hi! Im new here and I just saw that you are vegan AND gluten free!!! I am too and I really want to go vegan, but because those two diets just go against each other and im really finding it difficult to. so I don’t know, do you have any tips? (if anyone that has read this has anything, please tell!)

  • Thank you for this video! I’m subscribed now and I follow you on Instagram ��. I have officially decided to transition and you are a tremendous help. I love the tip of starting one day a week. ✨��

  • hey Sadia! love your videos and the way u are making it so easy for us to understand about veganism!
    i really wanted to get tempeh, but it’s not available in our city. Can u guide us on how can it be made?

  • I am vegiterian and vegan like moral but vegiterian i drink milk but only from very very well cared cow.we love them we treat them as anericans would treat their dogs..
    Yes i am an indian.we love and care of the cow whoes milk we drink we dont try to drink much as it may hurt the cow.
    But i m gonna stop taking milk..really i m feeling guilty

  • i’ve woken up (a process over years) a time ago, but still… i cannot stand the pain and terror the animals have to take. there is no justification and no single reason for sustaining this perverted industry, no single argument FOR continuing the evil we do against the animals!

  • It’s July 2020 and I’m October I intend to transition into a vegan/plant based lifestyle. Health is one reason why I’m choosing to do so as well as I’m allergic to many things. I also have an autoimmune disorder which affects my blood. I don’t have a lot of support but I’m determined to make this change for myself. I’m giving myself this time to prepare myself as much as possible

  • hey kristen, i love you! i have one question though: vegans don’t eat honey bc honey is an animal (or insect) product, but isn’t it beneficial to buy locally sourced honey? if you know where the honey is coming from you’re actually helping the environment bc your funding people who need bees for their product, which means more bees. a lot of honey companies are actually super beneficial to the environment by acting as a conservation place for bees. i feel like all vegans should swallow their pride and take away the “vegan” label and just not eat eggs and dairy and gelatin and the other stuff that falls into the non-vegan friendly category other than meat. or is honey vegan friendly? honestly idk

  • I love that you keep redoing this topic every few years or so. I am noticing what’s intimidating me is not knowing what a wholesome meal consists of, not knowing the food groups that makes a wholesome meal, not knowing what I will like and dislike before committing to purchasing it.

  • Oh I so love your energy. Had me hooked and subscribed from the first sentence you spoke. Yes, keep radiating all that positive energy and inspiring me Queen!

  • im vegan greek i go to my yayas house shes like want some lamb im like i vegan…..she laughs like joking???????? lol i dont she minds

  • Its almost hard for me to understand or relate to anyone who isn’t vegan. I take it very seriously, granted im only about 4 months in but before i considered myself an enviromentalist but realized i was lying to myself. People that claim to be environmentalists and eat meat just leave me facepalming myself. Its gotten so bad that i dont really want to associate with anyone who is a meat eater or consumer etc. I feel like the planet is just constantly getting fucked and all these people are causing the downfall of it but when they see people like me all they do is make fun of the fact you’re trying to improve the situation for everyone else. You literally get mocked for taking action and cleaning up your own previous mistakes. I used to mock/make fun of vegans myself. I used to eat super shitty and was over weight more so than i am now. But im only realizing vegans and true environmentalists & minimalists are the people we all need if we have want to survive what so ever. We are literally pioneers of our time & the future. Shit pisses me off and gets me furious, i can’t believe i used to be like everyone else.

  • I saw this video almost one n half year back n since that i have stop eating animals.till date when i crave to eat non veg, this video gets auto play in my mind and it keeps me going.. ����

  • Do you have tips if there are some vegan foods that I don’t want to eat because of texture or it may be hard to get past a certain taste? Lol!

  • Actually your video is amazing. It’s been 2 weeks for me being vegan but I find it so hard to be vegan in a Muslim family. It is not me, I’m so dedicated to be vegan, but my family are always telling me that it is wrong to become vegan,, you can’t become vegan,, you’ll be malnurished. But after I saw your video, I’ll complete being vegan for my whole life. Girl your inspiring, and you make it easy. ♥️♥️❤️❤️

  • I was a vegetarian for 12 years before giving up dairy over night a few months ago. Now I’m slowly fading out eggs. I always thought it would be harder, but if you know WHY you want to go vegan, it’s pretty easy actually:)

  • It’s pretty rare for vegans to actually acknowledge the moral inconsistencies that are often seen. So thanks for that. Puts you one step ahead of most.

  • When it comes to eating healthy, you have to try not to fall victim to modern day fad diet plans. Extreme diets undoubtedly are a threat for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your everyday nutritionary intake. While they might generate fast weight loss, these diet plans will never be a long-term solution for your weight problem. You should look up Custokebon Secrets on google since it isn’t just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • This is the video that convinced me to finally go vegan after being vegetarian for a year… now I’m going on 7 years next year being vegan! Best decision I ever made ♡

  • Guys. lost tons of weight does not need to be hard (I used to think it did). I’m going to give you some advice now. Get a popular fat loss system called Custokebon Secrets (just google search it). Thanks to it I have lost lots of weight. I should not even be speaking about it cause I don’t want a bunch of other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I am just in a excellent mood today and so I’ll share the wealth haha.

  • I am currently working on a DEADLY VIRUS in my private lab called “Fuck Meat Eaters 2020.” It will ONLY do damage to people who eat meat!! You have been warned!

  • Gave up after seeing very flawed arguments coming through. Tigers don’t salivate when they see their prey either. The smell and taste of an animal’s exterior is quite separate from the nourishment of the meat. He already proved at the start of the video that he can manipulate people easily, and he seems to be doing that for the extent of his presentation. Also he hasn’t done his research on plant reactivity and life. Just because a plant can’t scream and run away doesn’t mean it can’t feel anything. Read the Secret Life of Plants. Like definitely we should be treating animals better, but veganism is 99% flawed arguments. Given up on the vid for now, but please feel free to direct me to more convincing arguments of the video or debate me on any of this.

  • OMG…. first pillar is calcium??? you have calcium in every veggie, flax seed are full of them, chia seeds also… and you recommend to supplement it with unnatural stuff? OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I watched this when I was 13 and I’m 17 now and still vegan. This video is amazing, without it I wouldn’t of gone vegan then and still be now

  • What a great into to veganism! I’ve been plant based for a while and this was still extremely helpful:)
    I’ve veganised a few of my family recipes…but my family was a family of buchers from England so…aside from lentil loaf it’s pretty hard to make vegan.

  • Compassion is what sets us apart from the animals. Never thought about it like that before but it definitely adds more weight to the ethical side. Animals kill to survive and out of instinct. We have compassion and the means not to kill.

  • Learn how to bake buckwheat bread! It’s super delicious, nutritious and 100% gluten free. If it’s too complicated, you can make french crepes. https://www.nutriplanet.org/2016/03/fermented-buckwheat-bread-2/ http://www.ingeniouscooking.com/vegan-gluten-free-galettes-buckwheat-pancakes-thin-light-as-air/

  • I know this is a stupid question, but how much is a “serving”? Is it one tea spoon/ tablespoon spoon full of food, or a handful of food?

  • I got worried about my food being wholesome. Just went vegan, lost 10kg. Lately, I got diagnosed with mody diabetes, which makes me incredibly nervous. This video helps me getting a little more calm.

  • Hey Sadia!
    I have a question:
    It is usually said that fruits and berries should never be mixed with dairy products, nuts or other food groups, or it would affect our health adversely. Is that true?

  • You don’t need to buy organic fruits and vegetables. They have done studies on them and found at there is no difference in terms of nutrition. Plus they use pesticides on organics too. Do your research don’t get fooled by these organic labels.

  • Holy shit. I finally found the video that made me go vegan on the spot years ago. Watching this video made me quit eating animal products cold tofurkey. Great speech btw

  • I was vegan and I stopped because of this negative emotion and so so many other reasons, I wish someone had told me that veganism is not easy at all: you see always negative things around you, except when you eat or see a beautiful plant (I’m a nature person); your friends and even strangers are gonna ask you about veganism, why be vegan or why they think it’s stupid or useless and stuff; if you go out to eat (unless it’s a place where everything is vegan or vegetarian) the look at you like you want to be treated as special or like you want attention, like please let me live as I want. If you live in a country where they stigmatize veganism (like in my case aaaall Italy except vegan restaurants) it’s so hard because everyone looks at you with disgust. It’s more difficult if you’re young and live with your parents, you have to justify yourself for everything and ear them mutter more or less every meal, asking you if you want an egg or meat, even when they know you won’t. And it’s more difficult if you’re already on a relationship and he/she is not vegan and don’t want to.. look at him/her choosing to kill a life.. not so good. These are some of the reason why I stopped, with regret and with a heavy weight on my heart and mind. For me, at least now, it’s almost impracticable. I want to say that I have not made that decision lightly: I’ve been vegan for like an entire year and, unfortunately, I had a bad experience except (like I said) when I had to eat and the way I fell myself inside.. everything out was not so good as I was trying to be. I’m proud and support 100% every person that can live vegan, but for who is new: accept your limits and don’t be hard to yourself. Not every family is like mine and you had to try your vegan experience because it’s something that can make you feel happy on the inside and also on the outside but you have to work on it. I can only say that I can’t wait to have my own home, buy my groceries and live happy as I want ^^

  • I’m still going to eat meat, I don’t care what this guy says imma eat meat until the day I die and all you vegans can go fuck yourselves

  • Thank you for this! This helps a lot. I’m transitioning to vegan for health and recommended by my doctor. It’s a lot of research. Baby steps.

  • For me the hardest part about going vegan is cultural pressure. I live in Spain with my Spanish husband and his family cannot wrap their heads around the fact that I won’t eat jamón. I ordered a “vegetarian salad” at a restaurant and it was topped with tuna ��‍♀️ I am thankful that my husband is supportive of raising our kids vegetarian as long as we seek the advice of a registered dietician to make sure they are reaching all their nutritional needs.

  • I’ve been vegan for almost 4 years now and I love it, I had to learn much of this stuff on my own along the way. I love ur video is amazing, we can always learn more.

  • A study published in Journal of Agriculture and Environmental Ethics examined incidental death of field animals that occurred as a result of growing and harvesting crops in the United States, and the estimate is that 7.3 BILLION animals die annually. Approximately only 40 million cows were harvested in the same time period. This could even be improved if ALL cows were pasture raised and never fed grains. But you cannot make crop harvesting any less deadly. Proof that vegans are cruel to animals and don’t care about animal welfare. Who are vegans to judge which animal life counts more than the life of other animals?? If you care about the animals of this planet in general eat carnivore.

  • Haven’t eaten meat in months and I don’t miss it at all. Became a vegetarian and have been slowly transitioning to the plant based life style. I have been having so much fun finding out new recipes and videos like that! My roommate cooked fish the other day and I couldn’t eat it. I’ll stick with the plant based diet, it’s amazing…

  • You talk truth. You are amazing. This should be teached in schools! I was overweight 15 kilograms 02/20 and I was even without drinking milk, I ate yoghurts and other dairy. I stopped dairy 99,9% and in few months I’ve lost over 10 kilograms. I stopped sugar based foods like chocolate and cookies 99,9% and this 0,01% I eat when served at relatives or outside eating. I’ve lost 3 kilograms more reducing meat portions. Now I am 82, but still a bit overweight. This month I didn’t buy ANY meat for home made cooking. Expect to lose weight and will learn to cook vegan.

    Thank you for this video. It helps people. Literally less money spent eating outside and no problem walking a longer route home, since almost nothing needs cold temperature!!!

  • I came across this video a year ago and it did transform my life. I realized then I had been living a terrible life of speciesism. I decided to go vegan. I did it for the animals.but I too have been rewarded in many ways. I do enjoy vegan cuisine in ways I never imagined before. I have lost almost 40 lbs I did not need and I no longer need cholesterol meds. I feel great. I am so ashamed for all the harm I caused before and my only regret I have is why didn’t I go vegan before. I feel great and a great sense of peace and joy every time I sit at the table for a meal. Thank you James for giving me the red pill. Happy New Year.

  • You are the healthiest bodybuilder that I’ve ever seen. And plus, you are a vegan which explains why you look so healthy. The other bodybuilders who are meat eater and dairy-egg consumers look like they are about to have a heart attack. And plus, they look so unhealthy and unnatural to me. ������
