  • I am absolutely NOT comfortable counting carbs nor am I interested, so please help make it easier and less depressing for us. thanks

  • I see people mention greek yogurt since forever, but where I live all they sell in all stores are the ones with like 19g of fat. There are 10 or more different brands, god knows how many flavours, including plain, and they are all full of fat. There is “skyr”, the Icelandic yogurt, that has the macro split as the greek everyone mentiones.

  • I am a diabetic from a year and now i am 5 weeks,i am in insuline, i have thyroid cancer and have one right lobe of thyroid gland left over,which might be removed in 4 th month of pregnancy… does all this effect my baby..

  • I do not consider Tempeh cheap. and its double wrapped in plastic. I like it but its not cheap. please cost compare temp with eggs…eggs are like 1/5th the price?

  • Your macro tracker is definitely inaccurate because it said there was no cholesterol in that meal even though eggs are like cholesterol bombs which increases atherogenesis so…

  • I’m 6 months pregnant & just been told I’m a gestational diabetic ugh hating life right now none of this stuff looks or sounds good������

  • Great vlog as usual. I’m not vegetarian but I too enjoy meatless meals and I came across Textured Vegetable Protein a.k.a TVP. I’ve used it as an alternative to beef in tacos and chilli. Delicious ��. Hi from ����. Would love to see you come up withs ome TVP recipe ��

  • Hey Rachel! What type of Greek yoghurt do you use?? I have type 1 diabetes so it’s hard to find a Greek yoghurt that is high in protein, low in fat and low in sugar too!

  • What if im addicted to training what should i do!!!! Im feel sore but full but still somehow feel like energizer battary i just cant stop please help

  • Thanks the first few are new to me. Pork tenderloin is a huge underdog and Greek yogurt is also great…plain Greek yogurt is perfect with fresh or frozen fruit.

  • I love tempeh! I’m so glad you included it!! I also wanted to let you know you can definitely eat it straight out of the packaging! That’s how I make my tempeh, veggie and hummus wraps… They’re amazing. Have a great day!! Love your vids

  • Video Idea: Series where you work recipes from these. I was intrigued by the canned chicken which looked gross but I figure you’ve tried before. Also, I never tried tempeh, but the wife is vegetarian we buy vegan stuff all the time. I’m trying to cut down soy. Looks like the cat poop coffee.

  • Really good ideas here again quite simple which is great, snacks are one thing I struggle with in terms of wanting the things I shouldn’t, so thanks I’ve got a lot to takeaway from this video��

  • Love watching your videos ���� I’m from Albuquerque New Mexico btw. I’ve gained 20 pounds of muscle because of you ���� Thanks man ❤️

  • thats so funny with the hairbands, its always this funny moment when i cut my hair too short for them and i realise i dont need them everywhere anymore.

  • Tip for others: remember if you look for ‘low fat’ it should ALWAYS say ‘..and sugar’. If you get only low fat they pack more sugar into it.

  • Hi there, thanks so much for the inspiring video! I appreciate it. I’ve been trying to help my wife lose weight. She keeps bouncing between different diets. So far she’s tried the Paleo Diet, the my28daydiet.com Diet, and the Mediterranean Diet. All are so-so. I think a higher protein intake would help her to lose weight quickly, so I’ll tell her about your video. Thanks again and much love!

  • thanks for this video mate. I do 25 sit ups, 15 press ups and 40 second planks twice a day. Would them exercises help transform my abs?

  • dude; you might want to actually go ahead and learn to cook before trying to show others how its done lol that looks like shit.. add some butter next time forget that PAM spray bs

  • I’m NEW to your channel and the title got my attention because I working eating better. Your yogurt idea looked delicious. In the morning I also have yogurt but I only mix in flex seeds. Your idea to use fruit made it look not only more scrumptious but more filling. I’m going to try peanut butter on a celery stick. I ‘m a fan of peanut butter but not celery ��so I’ll see how this goes��

  • I like turkey burgers more than veggie (well never had veggie) but looking at macros and protein. The butterball ones I think are 8.99 per 6 but at Publix we can get BOGO so 12 for 8.99. I think it’s 240 cal for 31g protein and they have flavors too. Soo good.

  • I used to eat carrots and peanut butter way back in the days! Everyone always said its crazy but loved it! And also it has some benefits to runny nose����

  • Derek! It’s been a while. Your audience engagement had improved immensely, great job!

    I had a couple more suggestions. I’ve been eating mostly plant based for a year now and I really like smoked tofu. It’s one of my favorite proteins, and it’s cheap to. Thanks for the video. Glad to see your channel growing.

  • no i’m not comfortable counting carbs. matter of fact i suck at counting EVERYTHING. i eat when i’m hungry and avoid stuff that makes me feel disgusting. that’s about it. i balance my foods every day and try not to overdo 1 type of food. i drink MAYBE 1 pop 3 days out of the week, and maybe 1 glass of juice 1 day out of the week…. yet i still just got diagnosed with GD.:/ i eat out ONCE a week, trying to keep eating out to only TWICE a MONTH, yet still got GD.:/ My weight gain is on track and so is baby’s growth, yet… here we are. I don’t get it. The diabetes wasn’t enough thus far to leak over into my urine the glucose has been at 0 as well as the ketotones, which i was told by a nurse i work with would be high if i had GD >> sooo I don’t know what’s going on for me to “have GD”. hopefully recipes like yours, Jess, will help me eek through the last couple months of pregnancy if the Docs are right, which I think they are erroneous IMO, but whatever LOL i’ve never been one for “dieting”. I don’t “Diet”. i CHANGED my diet entirely about 8-9 years ago, and eat intuitively mostly, balancing out types of foods & just not overdoing anything, never overindulging. over-eating 1 type of food makes me backslide BADLY, so “dieting” & “restricting” doesn’t work for me. it makes my cravings worse.
    Worst of all, most of the foods on healthy lists are expensive peanuts alone are too expensive much less healthy nuts. We have a budget of $90 and below on our grocery bill, which i try to stretch as much as possible, so always staying away from processed boxed pasta meals or what have you isn’t always easy. other than that, i’m not ALWAYS eating pasta, and barely ever eat bread. i don’t get a whole lot of veggies unless they are canned, same with fruit, because to have those on hand don’t always work outuntil now. Pregnant with my 2nd, I am CRAVING salads, but buying all the salad fixin’s is expensive too, you’d be surprised how it adds up. so i don’t do it every week. i just BALANCE.
    I’ve been taking FISH OIL as opposed to eating fish since so many fishes have mercury levels i’d rather just AVOID than worry. and i take my prenatal. i have NO other health problems, no problems with my BP and no other meds i’m on.
    anywho, i’m probably pre-diabetic/borderline more than anything, but i go to my ‘education class’ on monday & the OB on thurs after 3 days of testing my blood 4x a day.. so this should be interesting. i half feel like they are just trying to swindle me out of my money, i’m that borderline. my first glucose test, the Dr in the group i’d gone to, said it was okay to eat before taking it… WRONG. but still, 131 when the healthy range ENDS at 130 (literally) isn’t bad for having eating at 5:30 am, drink that drink at 8:30 and get blood drawn at 9:30 now is it? LOL Then my 3 hour test failed at hour 2 and 3 at hour 2 it was 1 point (only 1 point) above the healthy range, and hour 3 it was 5 points over the healthy range. Stillnot too bad considering. That test, i indeed fasted & did as told. I’m a stickler like that. Yet here I am with GD. i don’t get it, but whatever.
    PS my first son -i had NO GD, my wt was on track as was his growth, and he weight 5 lb 1 oz at 41 weeks gestation and needed inducing. had a C-Section due to “not progressing” (was only 2 cm for 24 hours or more). he was looking to the side, too which doesn’t help. and my pelvis was too small. so i’m getting a c-section THIS time as well simply b/c my pelvis is too small. in any case, i have a feeling this baby will be under or at healthy weight no matter what, because i don’t overdo stuff and DO eat balanced already, as much as possible anyhow, seeing as how with my son i ate out 2 out of 3 meals, drank 1-2 pops a day EVERY day, and DIDN’T get GD (I had him at age 33 and i’m 37 now). So the ONLY risk factors I SEE, are i was slightly over weight at pregnancy’s start & i’m 37. otherwise, everything i’ve done this time is healthier than with my son (who isn’t overweight, is short & skinny, & has a good appetite but doesn’t overeat & we don’t even ALLOW lots of carbs if we can keep from it, candy, not too many fats at all, and NO soda and NO juice. he doesn’t even get juice boxes. he only drinks water & milk (which i do too when i’m home).

  • Hi can you please help me I am 7 month pregnant and I have diabetes and every time I check it it’s high can you please help me please

  • Joughurt dip, greek or Turkish yoghurts with garlic powder, lemon, salt and mint. Let that sit in the fridge and eat it with sweet potatoes. It’s amazing

  • Vegan protein won’t work as good as meat protein.
    Don’t try to comment that vegan protein works too. The body can’t use it as good as meat protein

  • Derek, I’ve been watching your videos for a while and am very glad to see you progress over the years (dhftns.commmm). This video is far more articulate and entertaining, and yes informative. Just wanted to say I enjoyed the video. Keep up the good work ��

  • whey is the best for the money and has the highest absorption rate of all proteins. the old school guys say nothing can replace real food but science says otherwise.

  • Well most of these are the same price over here, but when the average salary is like 1/5th of the average salary on the US, it still breaks the walley
