  • You cant have a good body with minimum habit of 50 pushups a day… you have to make a full workout 4-5 times a week. Stacking is interesting theoretically but difficult to apply. when you are at gym you cant concetrade and learn from audio video content, or take notes… its more productive to be fully concentrate at one task at a time

  • Most folks don’t have an hour to watch a YouTube episode. Instead of answering various questions during your session, why not take one subject and make it 15 minute episode instead?

  • Tom, do you wake up full of energy and ready to go like Tami now? Since, stopping caffeine.

    Or is it just a difference in personality?

    Are you sleeping better now?

  • Very informative video! Thank you so for going over the things that were affected by the outage. I have learned to watch in segments. It is working well. Talk as long as you want Tami!

  • Regarding people complaining about your videos going over an hour… my thought is if you don’t have time to watch the entire video, save it and finish watching later don’t complain about getting too much good information. Nobody is forcing you to watch in one sitting. Besides, this is for you and your health❤. Enjoy!��

  • ‘Change your environment’ is legit the best tip I followed. I love potato chips. Whenever I used to go for grocery shopping I would buy dozens of packets thinking it will last me a whole month but I would finish them in less than a week. Once I stopped stocking them. I realised i don’t feel hungry. I have nuts and fruits at home but still don’t snack. I guess I wasn’t hungry, just addicted to junk food. now I just eat one meal a day and don’t feel hungry for the rest of the day at all.

  • I plan stuff and procastinate every goal i set. Is there any way out of this. Things with hig priority are still procastinatd by me.

  • Fake meat?…that CANNOT be good for you. Early man hunted with sharp sticks and ate meat over fire for millions of years. They actually preferred the organ meats. The tribal leaders got to eat the liver. I eat lots of calf liver and take supplements that contain heart, brain, liver, etc. from grass-fed animals from New Zealand. Tastes so much better than processed.

  • Thank you for sharing your information. Your hard work is really appreciated especially by us beginners to the whole food plant based lifestyle.

  • Thank you so much for this advices I’m always learning new things about weight loss and health just because of you, I’m thinking to try a water fast journey for 3 weeks, what do you think about that? ( I’m 17 year old )

  • Hey Carlo i know you’re big on the Keto diet but is there any chance you could possibly do a video on the benefits of a healthy balanced diet i.e the pros of not restricting certain food groups or something like that, thanks:)

  • I think I’ve read in your newsletter as well about your thoughts on fitness routines and I think you could cain a lot from looking up more on the basics of training. Of course it’s depending on your goal, but doing 50 push-ups is probably not getting you where you want to be. As far as I’ve understood training is a spectrum with strength training on the one side and endurance training on the other. When you are strong enough in any exercise to do more than 14 repetitions, you’re already so strong that it’s mere endurance training. One reason to this is that we have to types of muscle fibers, type 1 and type 2. Type 1 is endurable but not very strong and can be found particularly in the muscles of the eye for example. Type 2, which can be found in e.g the biceps, are much stronger but get tired quickly. Type 1 are therefore usually activated first, and type 2 is activated when either the weight is too heavy for the type 1 fibers, when the type 1 fibers are already too tired (reaching muscle failure) or when the exercise is performed very quickly.

    Thus, you might be interested in adding more weight. It’s not only less time consuming but also less painful. If you still need something that can be done anywhere you could check out the reddit recommended routine for inspiration. It uses progression exercises to make the stress on the muscles gradually greater.
    Not looking for muscle but endurance? Maybe do less push-ups and focus on some other way of training that better suits that purpose.
    I’m not formally educated in the subject though, only sharing this as a fellow learner hoping it might inspire you for further learning. byeee

  • I am learning so much with your videos thank you so much, its weird I use to go to weight management about 2 years ago and my doctor told me to use canola oil and not to use coconut oil its sounds crazy?
    Anyways going to that place didn’t work out for me ��

  • Thanks so much for doing this video. There are so many helpful tips! It is helpful for me to consider how I have to eat differently than my husband and teenage son, I think I have been having too much tofu because my son just likes a couple types of beans. Also, thanks to Tom for telling about his experience with eliminating caffeine. I get terrible withdrawal headaches too. I am down to two cups of green tea a day, but I will keep working to eliminate those.:)

  • Gatorade saved my life when I was between live and death in a hospital and couldn’t eat it was recommended of the nurses and doctors & Build up. But you are right dont drink it on daily basis �� Ty ��♥️

  • Dear Tami and Tom… you both are such delightful people and I find it very easy to stick with your youtube contributions. I am finding your programs very motivating with great insights. Thank you for taking the time to help us out. My Holland Mill Bowl will arrive on Friday and I am looking forward to enjoying chopped salads. So far I have been using my food processor with very good speedy results. Good, better and best choices is a great way to think about the way I choose my food. Also, I have taken your advice and prepped a bunch of chopped veggies in the fridge and I am now getting the hang of loving my salads. I purchased the vinegars you suggested. That flavor is also a learning curve for me. I’ve been WFPB for over three years now and I have had so many positive results. Anyway thank YOU!

  • I decided to rest fasting for 5 days�� I started today, I want to relax(mind, body & my soul) okay I will do my best to move often��bec I feel guilty of what u said I workout for 1-2hrs after that I spend my time in my sofa��

  • can someone tell me how to structure my own curriculum for my own courses and program like college lvl curriculum fro my self education at home

  • Missed the part about Tom guitting caffeinethe video cut out! Can you fill me in with the main points? Thanks so muchyou guys are so wonderful!

  • 1. Get rid of liquid calories (soda, juice, alcohol). 2. Set a goal of getting 10000 steps everyday. 3. Learn to read labels. 4. Practice self-care. 5. Change your environment (purge foods that don’t help you with your weight loss goals)

  • Can you explain plant milks please you said not to use coconut milk but I thought the nut milks would be high in fats thanks love your show xx

  • Great video, great tips, I swear you’re knowledgeable is astonishing!! Do you think you could make a video on the best way to schedule “cheat”/Treat meals?

  • Coffee info is helpful. My husband is just jumping on board with plant based. Loves his coffee. This info was very helpful to know and to go slow. Also you don’t get deep sleep. Thanks and safe travels.

  • Love your videos! I look forward to it each week and don’t miss any of your postings. Thank you for all you are doing to give back to the community. I wish I was able to see you this weekend. I am not able to attend this year.

  • so after watching your videos, i’ve been trying to change my lifestyle and i was wondering if i was on the right path. i wake up early in the morning and take a morning walk, then after i do cardio, abs and thigh slimming workouts because i’m trying to lose weight. i’m trying to eat low carbs food but it’s pretty difficult cause i just eat what my parents make. please tell me if i’m on the right path and if you have any tips for me please let me know! thanks

  • Oh wow that is so true. I found that when I ate lots of breads and rolls, my weight went up. I’d cut the bread out of my diet, my weight went back down. Bread will definitely stall progress.

  • Yey! Promoting and practicing SELF-CARE is the BEST part for me.
    Especially during this pandemic, during the community quarantine, we indulge ourselves in eating whatever we want thinking that it’s our way of taking care of ourselves and managing the stressful situations surrounding us.
    But it’s not, self-care goes beyond thinking of what’s good for our body, not just with what we wanted to eat or do (like lying on the couch or bed the whole day as a form of rest). Sometimes we find it very difficult to first give self-care thinking that it’s selfishness but IT IS NOT SELFISHNESS. That’s why we really need to remind ourselves and other people as well to practice self-care because it’s not easy but once we embrace it, just like IF, everything will follow: healthier self, healthier relationships, healthier mindset, productive individual in the community and so on…. We’ll be the best version of ourselves.. �� �� �� ��
    Thanks for this Carlo! ������

  • Thanks for this! Makes me think about how often habits aren’t created not because of the person (their lack of willpower, discipline, etc.), but rather the way habits are set up (maybe it wasn’t a tiny habit to start with, chose going to the gym first vs. practicing the consistency muscle with doing pushups, etc.). That give a lot of hope:)

  • There are definately levels, and most people dont realize it. People who say they can not lose weight just most likely have never “completed a level”, and give up too soon.

    I once read that beer is basicly liquid bread.

  • Hi Scott, really nice idea of minimal goals and don’t break the chain habits.
    I was wondering what the learning Chinese app you mentioned was?

  • I like everything u say almost always & that includes this video but I take exception with this whole “take a day off for yourself” comment. Maybe it’s different in Canada but here, the 40 million people in my state are still mostly on lock-down. In California there are basically no gyms. I don’t have church ⛪ which I desperately miss. My “work” has been deemed “Non-essential” since March with no end in sight. Bcuz it’s so hot here (& in most of the non-coastal cities which despite what they show in movies, is actually MOST of my state) I can’t really exercise or even go on a decent walk outside around my neighborhood. I and most people I know would give anything to NOT have a day off. From work, school, church, anything that gives one a sense of purpose. I do agree with all of that sedentary lifestyle should be avoided stuff u say here. It’s just that right now IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO AVOID DOING IT. And I feel like “just relax” or “we live in such a ‘busy busy go-go so fast’ kinda society” or “take a day or two off for yourself” are all already such stale bromides that I might have been tempted to once roll my eyes at, but now they are insufferable. If it weren’t for fasting I would probably now resemble Jabba the Hutt! So at least I have that & I am grateful for all of your invaluable tips on how to do that properly. I have been fasting for longer periods to make up for the lack of activity or gym exercise and also to combat a lot more garbage food that’s been sneaking into my diet since binge watching Netflix is now my main “activity”. Lol I know it’s not your fault but maybe refrain from telling people to take it easy until things return to a time where we ALL have the option of a busy life to quit. ��
    All said with love, of course!
