It’s rewarding for me to see. Set realistic expectations. With any diet, it’s important to set very realistic expectations and goals. If you want to lose 15 pounds and keep it off long-term, you need to set yourself up for success. In general, it’s never recommended to lose more than 1 to 2 pounds per week.

3 He Played Batman Only 1 Year Later!Losing 15 lb (6.8 kg) in 2 weeks, or 7.5 lb (3.4 kg) per week, would require creating a daily deficit of about 3,500 calories. To achieve this, you’d need to adopt an extremely low-calorie diet and do lots of vigorous exercise every day, so it’s not recommended.

  • Wait having 3 siblings is alot!? I literally have 6 other siblings and I also have half siblings that are only related to me from most of my siblings. Like my baby sister. We have a WHOLE different side of the family and we are only related bc of my baby sister’s dad. Did I mention I’m pretty sure none of my siblings are blood related? We are only related from my mom. We all have different dads. Only the 3 oldest are fully related. Man

  • I’m 274 pounds, 5’ 6” tall. I want to loose 100 pounds. How much fruit is too much or enough for weight loss? And should I intermittent fast to try to lose weight?

  • It was extremely touching to hear Josh talk about how important it was to him to have succeeded in getting his family to get on-board with the WFPB way of eating. And both Ramona’s and Dustin’s stories made me weep with happiness for them. Bravo for the whole family!

  • Fauci is a corrupt toadie with conflicts of interest. $$$$$. I would not trust anything that monster says. Talk with vladimir zelenko md, who truly cares about public health.

  • Congratulations on your weight loss journey. I learn to pray about everything especially getting healthy. I tried the Chole Ting Ab challenge believe me those 10 min seemed like an hour but I did not see any results at all. I just work out now

  • I love this story! I can’t enough of hearing how more people are succeeding at making healthier choices and taking control of their health, how people are regaining happiness, energy, mental health, all of that back.

  • I played wrestling and I lost a pound every day sometimes 2 or 3 the doctors told me slow down cause they thought it was because of my adhd medicine so I could keep my adhd medicine cause it was helping me I had to work lesss and it caused me to falll and I gained so much now they want me to lose all the weight I gained ����‍♀️

  • I’ve been following your videos for the last few weeks, but never commented before. I really love your energy and positive attitude!

    I’m in Dallas as well and teach at a Barre Fitness studio in Highland Park. It’s low impact, burns a ton of calories to help with toning in far less time than a stationary bike. If you see this, and are curious, let me know if you’d like more information. The first class is free.

    PS, I don’t get, or want, anything. Just thought I’d spread some love to those on this journey.

  • Morning doc..I wanted to know if having a rouxeny.hepaticojejunostomy..has the same side effect of calorie a gastric bypass?

  • Hi I am a new subscriber and I am totally hooked by your videos. Your physical change is so incredible. You look so different from the beginning and seem more confident, joyful and bright. You are a great source of inspiration. Thank you so much

  • Thanks for sharing. Idk if I could intermittent fast. My weight loss in the past has happened when I eat 5-6 times a day. 3 small meals and 2-3 snacks. I’m only eating 2 meals. And eating junk/fast food too often.

  • Interesting how an ad for Trulicity came before this video. That’s something that type 2 Diabetics inject once a week but it’s not insulin. It’s over $800 for a 4 week supply. Did either of you develop Diabetes? Were you told that it was probably in your future if you didn’t lose a lot of weight?

  • Hi, My name is Joseph and I just watched your show with my wife Kathy about the two of you going to Olive Garden. She has watch many of your videos and now doing the plant base diet like the two of you are doing except for eating the potatoes for two weeks. I sometimes like having a pizza when I work out of the area. I usually go to a place called Pieology Pizzeria. I was wondering if you could give me some suggesting for this. My wife and I enjoy watching all of your videos and congratulations to the both of you for losing so much weight. Thanks for posting all of your recipes.

  • Oh my god your first video was just recommended to me and I decided to come check yall out and holy crap you guys look amazing!!!! that’s so awesome ha

  • Thanks for showing and sharing a real struggle that many of us women have. Real bodies are still in!!! Thanks for this reminder ☺️����

  • I’m not a new subscriber, but this video was great, because you answered questions I’d had (but was afraid to ask)—just kidding. Seriously, good video.

  • Thanks for your content. We watch regularly for fun in this health adventure. Spouse just reached another health goal of normal weight & BMI. Keep encouraging people! Started Jan 2019 at 265 lbs./size 48 waist. Now weighs 166 lbs/size 30 waist.

  • Wow u guys lost so much weight. Im struggling to lose 7kg! Just started plant based 10 days. My husband and children aren’t interested. So we still ve the naughty snacks in the house. I gave in to those snacks today on day 10! ����
    Do u ve days when u give in to..occasional choco biscuits and potatoes chips?

  • Omg your story is exactly how I started my weight loss. I went to the doctor and couldn’t believe what I saw!! I knew then that I needed to do something. I was the biggest that I have ever been. I have lost 8lbs so far in my first month. It gets discouraging sometimes not seeing the weight drop off as quickly as I want. 30lbs in 3 months is amazing!!! Congratulations!!!

  • That’s my problem exactly ����‍♀️ I look good in clothes even with gaining weight so even though I noticed it I didn’t think much of it. Just as you I got a reality check getting weighed at the doctor. Starting my journey today ��

  • I loved the video very encouraging and uplifting. God should be included in every area of our lives even our health and weight, he cares. Thank you

  • I love your channel and the WFPB diet!! Hey Brian what is the YouTube channel you watched about getting up at 5:00 AM that made you want to make a change? I would like to watch it!

  • #question…. Hi Jessica, I’m not sure if you have already addressed this, but could you share your thoughts on BMI. I got the impression in a past video of yours, that this number is not important to you. I am headed for surgery sometime in the future and the Anesthesiologist needs to know this number so I am wanting to get into the “healthy” zone.

  • 2 weeks is long enough… 3 meals a day for 14 days, nothing but PLAIN potatoes. Cmon guys. They put in the workno need to extend it any longer.


  • I think I feel like I look better without clothes on. I feel like with clothes on it bunches my fat up and make it show very awkward at times. And without clothes it’s just free and not bunched up piping out in weird spots. I know that may sound weird cause I thought it was at first. Lol! ������ But Girl you look amazing, I’m on a health journey at the moment and your body is goals. ❤️��

  • Hi. I had vsg over 2 years ago and have lost 168 pounds in all. I am a normal BMI and weight but still borderline of overweight, my bmi is 24. I still want to lose only about 10 more pounds. I have been in maintenance for a year and a half. I’m following this way of eating and haven’t gained or lost anything. I pretty much ate healthy anyway, I’m just including more veggies. Anyway do you think my body had reached the point where it wont lose anymore regardless, like its happy place? I know this way of eating works well with obese patients, but if your bmi is normal, will it work to lose more weight or at some point does weight loss stop?

  • #QUESTION Hi Krocks, love your videos. Curious if you could comment on green smoothies? Do you ever sub a meal or two with a green smoothie? If no, why not? If yes, what’s your recipe and how often do you have smoothies? Also, have you noticed any differences or improvements to your sleep cycle and quality of sleep since going WFPB? Thanks in advance! Can’t wait for your next video ��

  • Even though I’ve followed you for a while, I love to watch your positivity especially during the rising Covid numbers here in Arizona. Thank you!

  • I have sooo many food allergies. Nightshade plants in particular like potatoes, tomatoes, peppers.
    Latex allergy so I can’t eat bananas avocados. ��

  • Just saw your Super Smoky Oil Free Hummus from March 2019, OMG you guys have done so well since then and lost soooo much weight. Well done. I know that is just two points along your continuums but I just had to congratulate you. Keep up all the good work. I like many of us, am on my own journey from the impacts of our past over indulgences. I’m in my 50s and I’m now lower than I was in Uni but I suspect I should take off 30-40lbs more to get to an ideal weight. Keep up the great work and the great videos. You are an inspiration to us all on so many levels. Off for my 12KM Covid-19 walk, now ;-)! All the best.

  • I watching ya’ll quite a while ago.. when ya’ll first did the potato diet.. just found ya’ll again and it is SO COOL to see ya’ll still going! Congrats on all your success!

  • Whenever I am dieting, I don’t put dressings on my salads or butter on my potatoes-(I never liked sour cream) vegies with NO or Low butter. I eat “MOSTLY” GOD-made AND not man-made. So I didn’t take any real or whole food out of my diet. I have a huge amount of energy. Of course, these days almost everyone knows not to eat the SAD American diet. The SAD diet shows how intelligent & honest the doctors who put the food pyramid really are. * I concentrate on NO OR LOW sugar, processed foods, trans-fats (i.e. canola -do the research. canola oil made from the rapeseed smells so bad that it is processed with chemicals more than once to get the smell out) * If a factory is putting any form of oil in the foods you eat (ck the labels) remember that they use the cheapest which is transfats unless it specifically states otherwise. ALL highly processed oil is a transfat. // I read the same book -Dr. Furhman is great. The book I read before that was “the Science of Skinny” by: Danielle McCaffrey She has a website called Processed Free America She was a chemist turned nutritionist after seeing the chemicals put into packaged food and she had a weight problem most of her life until she went processed free. PEACE y’all

  • Women: sits next to him on a comfy bean bag chair.
    Her: what’s up buddy
    Him: that’s not a bean bag
    Her: oh what is it
    Him: deez nuts

  • Girl. I have tears in my eyes from this video. I moved three years ago and I have gained so much weight and my cholesterol was high also. I didn’t weigh this much carrying my twins. I am ashamed to say that I am at 200 lbs and I look and feel awful. I turned 44 on August 16, we have 4 young adult men and only one girl who is a 10th grader this year. I am determined to be around. So thank you for sharing your journey. I am so grateful.

  • I was thinking…wow Brian does not seem like he wants to do this video at all, until the end and he explained it was rough…then he got happier lol

  • Thank you! Your videos are my
    ‘something to look forward to” at night after my 8 hours of zoom meetings and emails. You are my COVID friends lol

  • I feel like you’re taking my thoughts and putting them out there; I went from active to not and baby quarantine has me 14lbs heavier. I feel uncomfortable naked. My husband loves the thickness, but I want health and self love. I want to not be out of breath ����. I’m gonna get it together and be back on my active lifestyle

  • Tried the potatoes and zucchini this morning…did exacty her recipe because I am a mile high above sea level too. However it came out mushy I think because I wasn’t watching it close enough and it went 3 minutes into warm cycle…it is good though so I will try again! Thanks…

  • Congratulations Mary! I am also on a 3-month journey and almost there, great video! Thanks for sharing from one twin to another:)

  • This vid was charming, informative and HILARIOUS!!�� Thank you for all the time and effort you two or 3??(peef) put into these. I look forward to them. Hugs from Oregon!!

  • #question I think you’re also doing some intermittent fasting, correct? One of your other recent videos mentioned that Jessica doesn’t eat until around 11AM, whereas Brian seems to wait until 2PM or so. Not sure if you’re doing this every day, or if it was just that particular day?

  • I can confirm this info from personal experience. I’ve lost 145 pounds in 7 months by eating a whole foods plant based diet. No surgery.

  • I can’t tell, but did you loose hair? My friend lost 88 pounds in half a year and has lost a lot of hair. She went to see this dietician and isn’t allowed carbs but can eat meat. I think there is something wrong with this ‘diet’. Her skin also got real bad. I’m worried about her.

  • I have been binge watching
    your you tube videos. In one of the videos Brian you said you were not an emotional eater. Could you
    tell us what triggered you to over eat. No disrespect, I love you both
    and appreciate all your videos.

  • #QUESTION Do you have tips for fridge organization? Since you don’t have butter or gallons of do you use that extra space? My family is not WFPB so I have those things, PLUS my crisper drawers are overflowing and it’s hard finding ways to store my leftovers for reheating. I use the Pyrex bowls as well:) I guess I think a fridge tour would be a good video! Thanks for ALL you do!! I’ve watched all your videos but still enjoyed this one!

  • Hi Brian and Jessica! I just started watching your channel last week. You inspired me to try your vegan plan but not crazy perfect. Thank you for doing the channel! I have a challenge for Brian and Jessica! Can you try to make a easy recipe for tofu stir fry with cashews??? Not too spicy. Hope you will try it! I would love a recipe. You both are so sincere which is great to watch. PS: My 2 inch tall Snoopy from my grandson says hi to Peef. Life needs whimsy.
    Best to you both,
    Grandma Trish

  • I just finished my oatmeal for breakfast while watching this great video and remembered that it was inspired by you. I mashed the banana into it and topped it with unsweetened soymilk chia and fresh berries. I had never tried mashing the banana into the oats before, but it is a true game changer for me. It makes the oatmeal taste so much sweeter and more delicious in each bite. Thank you!

  • There is no way your starting weight wad 190. You looked smaller. I’m so proud of you. You’re absolutely stunning and great job on the weightloss ��

  • Yes what u eat in a day would be awesome!! I am trying to loose my stomach.

    I decided to stop eating Cheetos and Fritos!

    Trying to do more stomach exercises!!

  • I’m so glad I found your channel! I am really just beginning my WFPB ‘adventure’ and I’m learning so much from you two. Ty Ty Ty for sharing!!

  • Okay okayi know this is serious and all…but when i saw the thumbnail i thought to myself he now has his little own…leg table-

  • Maybe if ha walks a little bit every day not eating so much like me I eat 11:00 and then I eat at 20:00 but then get a surgery on one of legs I see then he be realy good take my advice…is hes still alive����������

  • I had VSG at 102kg and am now 80kg 4 months later and now weight loss has really slowed. I am going to start at the gym next week to try to increase my metabolism. I need to lose another 20kg. It’s definitely fustrating. I also love salad and vegetable and don’t like sweets. Even pre op I ate less than my relatives but was much fatter.

  • I dont like to see this kind of videos. It makes me so mad that people look that their in a terrible health situation and they keep eating and eating and eating. Why not stop for a change. He saw he had a medical condition with this tumor in his leg and he kept on. They eat tonz of food. Several plates with a huge pile of food. Yes they can do something about but they don’t have the balls to do it. He got what he asked for. In so tired of looking at this obese people only making their life seeker by the second. I read in an comment just below that he lost 300 lbs. I hope he did. If he did I congratulate him for his courage cause it’s not that easy. It’s not easy but yes we can. God bless all this obese people.

  • Im 5’1″ and my dream weight is 125-130 pounds. Im 157 now. The lowest Ive been able to weight in the last 10 years is 132 pounds and with a huge huge sacrifice (almost no eating so thats not good). Im 37 years old. I look good at 140 pounds and feel very comfortable, so thats the maximum I should weight. I guess we all carry weight differently.

  • Why in videos like these do they show them eating large quantities of fast food? And then zoom in on their face. ����‍♀️ He can’t even enjoy his food properly. ��

  • The most shocking thing about this video is that they threw away all that perfectly good food and ice cream at 7:40. WTF! Guess they don’t have to think about money while living of disability.

  • This is just sad his parents did drugs�� his family didn’t really have that much money he was over 300 ponds when he was 13 I think

  • Thanks for the video! I love the Goli acv gummies. They give me energy, cut my appetite, and keeps my BP down while helping to rid my body of the. Extra water weight. Crazy I know… but they work. I only do two to four per day. I think motivation is my issue…. i gotta do what’s right for me and stop trying to take care of everyone else… i gotta put myself first sometimes!

  • Diet Plan called Custokebon Secrets kept showing up here on a lot of youtube and I thought they were scam. However after my buddy follow it, and finally lost lots of weight with it without starving herself. I’m persuaded. You should not take my own word for it, search for Custokebon Secrets on the google search engine.

  • Yeah, I too am guilty of jumping from weight loss plan to others as well, I think that I must have tried every weight-loss program that was available, however in the end not one of them made it easier for me to shed and keep the weight off. I ended up trying for the very last time using the Custokebon Secrets simply because my friend who told me great things about it and so far to date I’ve successfully dropped 18 pounds within 4 weeks!

  • Disagree. The concept may be oversimplified, but how can you say who is genetically programmed to be this when the rates of obesity have recently risen? The body’s thermostat can be reset just as you said. You don’t have to be genetically lean to apply this concept. The problem becomes when people decrease their calories TOO much and reset their thermostats, or otherwise have life events which cause a decrease in metabolism.

  • My sister you look amazing. From where you was and now, blam, slam thank you mam. You are the bomb and your twin look beautiful also. I think you have done a good job. Our weight have been about the same as far as the highest weight but I don’t think I have ever got in the one hundred and fifties rim. JESUS is the reason for every SEASON, in everything we are doing or wanting to do. Everyone body is so different so we have to do what’s best for that individual. I am so proud of you and your journey. I got to work on the waist area and that’s it. May GOD continue to bless and keep you. Love you sis and all your videos.

  • As I’ve heard you mention on a few of your post, I know you dont exercise(only walks in the parks), nor do you count calories as a rule; However in my personal adventuress momens, I will recreate a recipe (often classic found in world wide cuisine from relatives passed down /religious pre-fast/fast [fluids]/breakfast) or a well known favorites….and turn these recipes into Whole Plant Base Food…as I create (using my Reseaech & Develope background that started in 1964 as a young boy, which was over 56 years ago…working to perfect my grandma & grandpa’s diner in glendale..we worked around the Salad dressing/ Table condiment Sauce/Gravy’s & thickened Flavor-Aid) all healthy,all
    basically a must for the psychy in order to add and increase higher quality’s illcuisine…Heres my question..out habit, do you Pre-write your calories you ingested in a day…in comparison chart…I need to laugh out loud… as there have been so much comparisons to calorie intake…it has become a habit that seems hard to break….
    Personally I fast often in pray, aswell I often will be going along on my Whole Food Base veganism aspects..once in awhile.. out of the habit I am offered a bit of meat, eggs, dairy(pus).. and take a bit of food without realizeing my deed;until, then its too late to have reversed the diet dirt, already…we wow ourselves at dumb moces.

  • Whoever is reading this plz know that God loves you. He is with you three the highs and the lows, he died for you so that you have happiness forever! So plz pay Him back so you can be happy! I wanna see you in haven plz join me! ❤️✝️

  • Dr what veggies are best consume? I am hungry more frequently now so I eat a lot of Romaine and grape tomatoes. Thinking what else I can add to the mix.
    I need to move my set point. Feel like my body is comfy and I have 17-18 more lbs to go

  • My family and I observe the Day of Atonement..
    It’s an High Hold day!!

    We atone for our sins by not eating or drinking anything for 24 hours, starting at sundown..

    This Day is One of the Lords Holy days that is found in the Bible and God commands us to keep his Holy days!

    We don’t do any. type of servile work and the children don’t do any school work.
    We have worship service with our other brothers and sisters in Christ!

    I know that as Christians we are advised to fast and pray on a regular basis.

    No food or liquid.

  • Dr I also watched your video on veggies first then protein. So how much protein should we be getting in a day. Typical stats say 80 grms but what’s your opinion? Would 80 even be feasible when eating so much veggies and fruits? Thanks

  • You look great! Congratulations on your weight loss. I’m on a weight loss journey as well I lost 30 last year but regained 10. During that time, I was helping my mom who was in hospice. My mom passed away in October last year. I think my mom’s passing and the quarantine were the cause. I’m tracking what I eat, I try to eat 1200 calories a day. I’ve been walking my dogs and they have helped me get out of the house and I’m in better spirits. I use fenugreek powder for my hair I’ll try to use in my yogurt. Good luck in the rest of your journey.

  • I totally agree with everything you have said in your videos. I find your method similar to Haylie Pomroy, she is the author of the book “Fast Metabolism Diet”. I am curious to know why this isn’t taught in nutrition classes. I have consulted with many dietitians, and kinesiologists, and they all think it is the simple math of the calories.

  • I had the sleeve in August 2016 and I’m not losing, I stay hungry all day. should I be hungry all the time.Everyone tells me they have to remind there selves to eat, but not me. Do you think something is wrong.My insurance will not cover my after care. Please, any answer you can give would help.

  • I have heard people say this before, but something about your delivery of this message, has made me understand why eating whole foods is the way to heal myself. I has VSG 3 years ago, lost 100lbs, and have started to regain. This presentation is excellent, because it tells people why they may or may not be seeing the results they want. It’s not a message to just do this because “I said so.” Also, your approach doesn’t feel like an attack on my character. That means the world.

  • I’m not so sure I agree with this, But I’ll never argue against eating unprocessed foods. I do think counting calories is a valid strategy to lose weight though. It is crazy how sometimes you find people that hate natural foods so much that they cry like children when confronted with vegetables.

  • can’t you reach the peak of starvation mode than stay constant or lose little weight than start deit with exercise again to reach starvation and lose lots of fat? you said 5% to 10% than its over but you can lose 10% than reset your set point than start again with “starvation”?

  • Dr Weiner  I am 5 weeks post op   in Australia  have a sleeve.   Here in Australia they say that we should have 5 veg  2 fruit a day  but with a sleeve its not really possible.   How much should we eat  I have at present only 1 teaspoon of mixed vege and fruit maybe a slice of peach or a small mandarine  is that enough?

  • Dr. Help me understand the sleeve, its either me or my Dr we are not understanding. I had my surgery on 10/8/14 starting. Weight 200lb in one month im at 187 lb.

    I had no restriction whats so ever. I work in corrections and I can easily eat 16oz of chicken, boild eggs, and 2 liters of water. I stoped loosing weight. I see my Dr in two months if I dont see more results I will demand him to to redo my surgery. I allready told him I was not happy with my results. I dont even hurt or have any pain nor disconfort when I eat and I eat fast. What is really going on?

  • Info on seed cycling: I know why you like her AJ, you guys are a lot alike!

  • New follower ��‍♀️ and loving your channel. I live in Cyprus and our choice of potatoes are clean or dirty �� they grow them here in the east coast and we have amazing red soil which produces great potatoes. We can get sweet potatoes too and tubs of tiny new ones, imported, but that’s all ��‍♀️ and the local ones are MASSIVE you could get 4 portions from one!
    My daughter is going to Uni in UK this year and couldn’t believe when I told her there are choices she just thought what we had was the definitive potato lol ��

  • Hi from Germany! Im HCLF and of course Vegan (healthy & ethics).I lost weight.I see so many information or Videos especially on YouTube how to lost weight but it doesn’t work for me at all. I have to lose 10 kilos. I count calories (2000), a daily deficit, do workouts but why doesn’t that work?

  • I’ve lost 1lb a day for 3 weeks and have lost 22lbs! It’s possible when you’re heavy, doing Keto, eating one meal a day, and exercising in a fasted state burning more than you eat.

  • I agree 100% with Dr. Weiner. Avoiding processed foods and toxins will improve your quality of life. His videos need to be seen by more people.

  • Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, girl. I needed this so much! I put on almost 30lbs during quarantine ����‍♀️����‍♀️. As a result, I’ve been so depressed which makes me want to eat more��. My clothes are dreaming for mercy����. I am so going to try his routine. Thank you again����������

  • I’m just going to have 24 ounces of water then in 1 h I’m going to have a packet of nuts the exercise the have another 24 ounces of water and then dinner

  • With the water, you can add some extra apple cider vinegar, don’t add too much. Just a teaspoon. Detoxifying! It makes it soooo much easier

  • Great video, congratulations on your way weight loss….155 pounds is much goal weight as well. I love fenugreek but I have been using sea moss and it has changed my life. You should check it out��

  • Im a male looking to lose 20 pounds because im at 220. I am 18 and I am a senior in high school im annoyed at people calling me fat all the time. Instead of exercising I sit in front of my gaming pc and playing roblox all day. I need to change!

  • Dude I am a fat kid that’s 12 and I weigh more than you. I would love to be lighter than what I am. I have had people call me fat then when I say I’m fat people tell me I’m not and I dont know what I am…..

  • Who else has a mindset of losing 1 pound and just eating apples if you hungry and just drink water until you get you body the way you want it

  • Have a family with him??? How is that even possible?!?!! Unless he can shoot from across the room with precision aim. It ain’t happening

  • Guys. lost crazy amounts of weight does not need to be hard (I used to think it did). I will give you some advice now. Get a popular fat burn secrets called Custokebon Secrets (search on google). Thanks to it I have lost tons of weight. I probably should not even be talking 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 will share the wealth haha.

  • If you do that your not losing fat your losing a ton of muscle you think you don’t have that shit ain’t healthy don’t give in to this

  • Need this. I’ve been slacking so hatd and was supposed to start June extremely fat and I bought clothes for skinny girls so I’m rlly gonna try now

  • I’m 13 4’9, and weight 100 pounds I don’t like that because of my age and height I feel I should be at most 95 so my goal is just to lose 5 pounds so I’m not that much over weight or even weighing more then I wnat to

  • My goal is to reach 140… body type is the one that stores fat and it’s hard for me to lose weight…btw thank you for these tips!!

  • I guess he can’t get the mass removed because he doesn’t have health insurance. But, I think as with most addictions you have to want to change yourself before anybody can help you. I sincerely hope that a surgeon somewhere in the U.S will help him.

  • How did you get through a whole 15 minute recap without talking about the Healthspan Solution? I’m shocked! Hahaha… (I saw it on the screen in the shot of your featured products, though.) Loved the outtakes. More of those, please, always.

  • Didn’t this man ate 3 burger and 2 large fries and five minutes later he’s gets 2 earth giant size chicken sandwich ���� and then ice cream

  • Not everyone has the motivation to do better. Growing up, I dealt with alot of bad things, and in highschool, I started working out to replace my emotional pain with physical pain. I’m lucky I found a way to cope.

  • Loved this! Lori is great, so refreshing and gives us “regular” folks hope we can be successful at this as well! Please have her back! Thank you Chef AJ and Lori for showing us by example how to stay the course! ����

  • My friend of mine uncovered her own secret to me about how exactly she got to cut her bodyweight using this weightloss process. What exactly I stumbled upon is it’s without a doubt working. I’ve already dropped 3 pounds that I have been wanting so hard to shed. Find a right program is not easy, you can discover on Google. Weight program’s name is Bella Kaγozko
    good luck

  • First of all…you look amazing������I love intermittent fasting, it works for me!

    Second, get the “likes” up people����������2.3K views and less than 500 Likes……��������

  • U look good at 155. Last year I was 286 now I’m at 188. My goal is 170, my height is 5’8. Yes closing the gym during cov19 set me back just a little. I’m still motivated through my savior Jesus Christ. Be Blessed ��⛹️‍♀️��‍♀️������

  • This is so inspirational. Going to pick up my veggies, fruits, whole grains and nuts now. Trying this for 1 week and will chart how I am feeling by the end of next week.

  • I’m 16 in 2 months, around 150 pounds and nearly 11 stone, people think it’s good but I’m not tall so I have a bit of belly fat that I really wanna get rid of

  • Mary, curvy women are just as sexy as slender women and I more on the slender side. You look beautiful my sister as long as you’re happy with your results, the hubby is happy as well
    ❤️����❤️. Btw, where did you get your necklace beautiful necklace from?
    Love & Blessings!

  • Bragg’s Aminos are a SUPER salt replacement. I use it in place of salt for everything (except baking). It has essential amino acids and super low sodium, 75% less sodium than salt. Also, Chlorella is my girl green powder. It curbs my appetite and my cravings die when I put it in my smoothies. It’s good for detoxing heavy metals so start with a small amount (1 tsp) of you try it.

  • I’ve been lurking on your channel for a while. I finally decided to start having a more plant based diet. It has really helped so far, and I love your quirky encouragement! I appreciate your authentic personalities.

  • Long awaited ���� Thank you Mary �� I’ve definitely been feeling discouraged because nothing seems to work… but I’m gonna start again ����

  • Chloe Ting snatched my back fat during those 2 weeks. I already started my weight loss journey but the back and belly fat wouldn’t budge. After the first week, the results were amazing. It’s hard but those results are worth it and bittersweet.

  • Trying to figure out what’s wrong with these 27 thumbs down people ����‍♀️. You gave a real and honest testimony of your journey and I loved it! There were so many takeaways for me to incorporate some of your tips and also continue some of the things I am already doing. I just bought my smoothie items yesterday before seeing this video. I already feel like I’m headed in the right direction. I will continue to trust God thru this process. I, too, got a wake up call from my doctor visit last week and need to make some changes. I don’t usually comment but wanted to say thank you and continued blessings!

  • #question Now that you are aware of plans other than Eat to Live, would Eat to Live still be your first choice of plans for beginners? My husband and I want to eat better, but so many plans seem to be either flavorless or require the kitchen devotion of a full-time chef.

  • That intro has me smiling so.������������ You and your sister are so beautiful and have lovely voices. Thanks for the video. I’m trying to tighten up too after gaining a few pounds before and during this “situation.” Thanks for keeping us encouraged.��

  • So I weigh 99 pounds..there’s nothing wrong with me… blood pressure perfect ��…energy and oxygen levels great..I think she is saying 114 is too skinny for her for her height and body type…so don’t apologize..but yes there are women whose bodies are at an optimum level at a lower weight!

  • My friend laughed when I told them I was planning to lose weight with just using Custokebon Secrets, but after I showed them amazing results right after I used it they’re begging me to tell them about it. Of course I won’t let them know the details about this diet plan, haha

  • Maybe not Brian’s fav, but refreshing to me, normally you two always make this look like one and done, nice to know you have those days as well.

  • I went vegan a few years ago and started eating fruits and vegetables which I never really ate before and got rid of ice cream and cheese, but I didn’t really lose weight. Somehow without the dairy and without adding in oil, I found other things along the way. One month after another, I seem to have found ways to compensate. When I did a lot of vegetables, it was probably avocado and guacamole. Later, it was no-oil hummus and no-oil salad dressings that had tahini. Later, it was too much wheat pasta or the fact that I like 5 bean casserole with all of its brown sugar. Honestly, I switched my diet entirely, but made zero headway and it has been years. I thought going off of chocolate and ice cream and pizza and lasagna and soda and iced coffees with 80% whole milk would cause me to zoom down but well, I have eaten more broccoli sprouts and cauliflower and mushrooms and pomegranate seeds and kale and watermelon and oranges and berries, but no matter how much I increased the fruits and vegetables I never got the calorie density thing.

  • I hate scrolling and subconsciously comparing myself to those who had some help from surgery. No hate on surgery but it’s great to see natural bodies too! You look great! Keep up the good work!

  • This is my first comment on YouTube! I just really wanted to tell y’all thank you because during these crazy times y’all make me smile and forget about my troubles briefly. Y’all seem so genuine, kind, and funny. Thank you for sharing your lives with us. 😉

  • Thank you! I’m at a point where I’m not comfortable in my skin & with myself. Such positivity & authenticity is inspiring. & You’re such a lady while doing it��

  • Don’t know how tall you are but when I was 150 I felt I was not at goal. Now I will give anything ( not really) to be 150… same happened to me where the weight crept up on me. wish I could loose 30lbs

  • Please can you tell me how much vitamin D I should take and also if it safe to take it in vegan capsules. Also do we need vegan omega 3

  • It is ok to show role models, but i think we should show the effects of bad diet, not only from the outside but also from the insides. We are way too much focused on the superficial aspect of our western diet.

  • Keep walking in your purpose and in your excellence! Such a great break down. Is this hair HGH u part, headband, or lace? It is absolutely stunning. Thanks again for all you do!

  • Starvation does work though. You see a lot of people who dramatically lose weight from starvation, and that’s what bariatric surgery is in essence also. The problem is you have to stay on a low calorie diet for the rest of your life to prevent a rebound.

  • I think this is my favorite video by far. (Next to the smoky hummus) You two as always do a great job, and I love you both to the moon and back ��

  • Real body! Real Woman! Love you for this honest and inspiring video. You’re beautiful at 190 and at 160! Stay beautiful, Mary no matter what!! Love and curves to ya always.��

  • Wonderful inspiring story, so happy that your quality of life has improved so drastically! ❤️ I wish I could help my family the way that you did, but they’re not interested. X

  • I’m tired of the potato diet being put down, I thought it was great!! I read Penn’s book first then tried it. It worked for me. so… of us like it!

  • Congratulations on the weight loss Mary. I really enjoyed this video and I hope that you post more videos on this topic. I have a similar body type and I gain just as much weight as you (I’m 5’3). It was hard to see at first because all the weight went to my thighs, hips, and butt initially. Well then my stomach started to look like I was nine months pregnant. It’s very encouraging to see how you were able to get the weight off. I’m trying my best to follow suit. Those comments you made about aches and pains are so true. We are too young for that! I hope that you do that challenge I would love to join you!

  • I’m lost for words right now.. I was recommended your 2 week potato diet video right after binge watching penn and teller magic videos, and clicked this video afterwards and I must say I teared up because I’m so inspired by seeing both of your transformations…just wow

  • You look beautiful as usual.
    Is your hair clip in, if so can you tell me the brand. How long have you had the necklace. Is there any change in the color. Stay Blessed

  • After watching your videos, then finally this video, I purchased your book, A Pound of Cure. I’m not even done with page 4 and I’m fighting to hold back the tears. I’ve felt like a failure, glutton, etc. for 30 of my 45 years after trying so long to lose the weight and dieting up to 45 BMI. I thought it was my fault. I thought I wasn’t faithful enough in my Christianity. Thought a whole bunch of things none of them right. I had vsg last week, and while my surgeon and office staff, and hospital have been great, I never understood fully what was really going on with me until reading your book and I’m not even done! Thank you so much for this life changing way of thinking! This will help me explain to my friends and family why I really needed the surgery.

  • Hey girl hey!����I was one of the ones “stalking”������ you for this video! GREAT, informative and well put video. THANK YOU! I was doing soooo good with Keto and IF prior to COVID19, quarantine, work from home and the overall state of the world ��. It’s just been TOO much! I had lost 50 plus lbs from May 2019 to the 1st week of March 2020. Since quarantine began on 3/16/20 at least 20lbs of those lbs have found their way back “home”!!���� I’m going to use this video as a springboard to get back on track. You look FAB sis!!!������������ AND YASSS TO WHAT YOU EAT IN THE DAY VIDEOS PLS!!!

  • I did exactly what Mary is talking about at almost the same weight before. This actually works. You could read on my personal journey here
    It crazy I’m also at the same weight at Mary after 3months
