  • 1st time watching. Recently got a B12 shot & been researching nutrition a bit. It’s often not just what you eat but what your body absorbs; without adequate B12 absorption, digestion of fats, carbs, proteins may be difficult & many other factors come into play. Do you have a vid on these processes?

  • I’m a new subscriber, and as an MPharm your science explained videos tickle a part of my brain in a very satisfying way! Love your channel x

  • Hi everyone, just want to say something real quick! It has been like 4 years that I can not eat any vegetables or things with fiber because my body just react really bad to them (cramps, bloating, gas, constipation, etc.). But I discover the Beano pills two weeks ago and since I took them, it just change my life (no more gas, no more constipation, still a little bit bloating but don’t feel any pain). You can found those pills on Amazon and some stores. It was really important for me to wrote this, because honestly, I’m just so happy that I can finaly eat vegetables after all those years, and I want to make sure that everybody who are in the situation I was before can finaly, like me, eat everything he wants again �� Take care ✌��

  • hi! i’m gluten free and vegan and i struggle a lot with bloating and pain after eating. is my “restrictive” diet why? (btw i’m gluten free due to migraines and vegan due to personal beliefs)

  • I am constantly bloated. Constantly. As soon as I start drinking water in the morning, I instantly swell and look 6-month pregnant for the rest of the day. It simply never goes away, ever. I need to tuck my tummy in at all times. I tried all possible diets, and consulted specialists, had blood tests, various treatments, and even an MRI to no avail. Absolutely nothing works, my bloating issue is a mystery. And when I try to look for a reason or a solution online, all I find is about losing weight, which is NOT what I’m talking about. I don’t drink alcohol, don’t eat much processed food, don’t have a sweet tooth and never use salt. And yet here I am now, endlessly browsing the internet only to find the same old, commonplace explanations.

  • I think there’s something wrong with me because whenever I get stressed, I can’t eat anything without (TMI warning) getting diahrrea. Everything just goes right through me. I hate it. I wish I was like normal people who didn’t get affected when stressed. I used to be fine and nothing happened when I got stressed except panic attacks. But now I literally can’t eat some days if I’m stressed about something. How the heck am I going to live as an adult with all those stresses when I’m like this as a teen. I have chronic pain and digestion issues which cause my stress too.

  • I recommend reading the book “I contain multitudes” by Ed Yong for those fascinated in microbiology or these topics in general! Really brings the imagery to life <3

  • Tomo probióticos, como cosas saludables y estoy tratando de no restringir mi consumo de calorías; hago suficiente ejercicio, bebo suficiente agua y descanso bien, pero mi cuerpo sigue igual. Solo estoy engordando a pesar de estarle dando lo necesario a mi cuerpo y ya no puedo con esto.

  • Important point! The connection between grains and heart health are not proven. This was an arbitrary connection made in the 50’s backed by the American Heart Association which is funded by grain companies. Studies have been held to try to prove whether this claim is true and it couldn’t be proven. Grains do not support heart health.

  • After 10 years of an eating disorder I have such terrible digestive problems that I honestly spent most of my life in pain. Unfortunately most doctors don’t really seem to have a clue what they are talking about or much of a solution

  • Please tell us just what grain avoidance can cause heart disease? This is the first time I have heard this bit of information. Pico from Queensland Australia

  • My quality of life was terrible because of digestion issues when I ate a diet with a ton of vegetables, fiber, fruits, nuts. I feel ‘normal’, as in calm after eating and able to socialize because I am not in pain, having almost no fiber, and a diet of: red meat, raw fat, aged cheese, A2 yogurt milk and cream, and minimal amounts of potatoes and orange juice. Literally nothing else. Been doing this about 1.5 years. Quality of life is not even comparable.

  • Referring to quality of sleep; my husband is “ sawing logs” every night, I’ve gained 3 lbs last week, is it grounds for divorce? ������

  • I have PCOS and for the past weeks I became really bloated that I thought I was preggo:) I could even feel my ribs expanding. Good times. I’m good now and I’m not sure what cause my bloating

  • The fact that you mentioned the journal Nature made me really keen to listen and subscribe to your channel because you are using real science for your explanations! Thanks for your info

  • Jillian, here’s interesting article backed by reputable studies describing the psychological, neural and physiological impacts of dieting (calorie restriction) and why most gain weight back. Calorie restriction works, but it has many impacts on hormones (therefore metabolism), and other aspects of our psychology and physiology. Both acutely and down the line. It’s been shown that although will power has a part to play in weight maintenance, that part is very small. Especially in context with the other opposing factors. I agree with much of what you’re saying with regards to food being used as an emotional crutch, family dynamics and habits also having a role. I agree that our psychology, past traumas etc. have a massive part to play and need to be worked through and unravelled (which can take years). But with weight, which is a very primal issue, there are physiological and neural factors that have a massive part to play in driving our eating behaviours as well. This is such a complex issue with so many facets. If you could please read the article, Jillian, and let me know your thoughts!

  • I wasn’t always in a place to hear this. But I need to hear it. And I’ll keep coming back to this video as I need to! Thanks, Jillian!

  • Even on a days I eat the healthiest I can, I am still probably 2 pants sizes larger by the end of the day because of how bloated I get ��. Like bro I just ate some carrots why I be looking like I’m 6 months pregnant?

  • I was prescribed the FODMAP diet in 2015; it’s extremely restrictive, although the purpose of the diet for me was to single out which foods I was intolerant to. I’ve still got a really poor relationship with food, to this day.

  • I’m processing it..& 2kilos of Bacteria in our gut, OMG
    ..GROSS….time to Balance
    the Bacteria in our Body,
    PARASITES cause issues
    to our MICROBIOME &
    cause all the issues?!!

  • YESS for science-based content! As a molecular biologist I know this video took a lot of time to prepare. It is absolute gold! Subscribed immediately!

  • I feel so dumb for still not understanding why I am constantly bloated when I eat clean and work out frequently. I watched this video and I still don’t get it.:(

  • This is actually great. I used to be low-FODMAP and it’s absolutely true DO NOT restrict your diet to that level unless you are seriously ill. You are seriously doing more damage than good. Water, sleep, exercise and a well-rounded and balanced diet is really the best we can do in the absence of conclusive research. Thanks for the video!!

  • I really appreciate all of the credible quality research you used and you clearly made it a point to be objective and unbiased. really great video and super helpful information!!

  • Lmao…I LOVE you Jillian! You just delivered very important no BS information while still being sensitive AND keeping your personal sense of humor. You are sexy AF, smart,funny and dow n to earth.

  • I’d love to see an updated version of this. I’ve seen more recent studies on ‘fermented foods’ and ‘eat 30 different forms of plants/nuts’. You have a fantastic way at presenting this information and getting solid research and I’m sure others would be just as interested! <3

  • I have celiac disease! And it annoys me tremendously when ppl who are perfectly healthy suggest eatin gluten free in their videos, because they promote that a gluten free diet is healthier but in fact, it is not beneficial at all for a normal healthy person to eat gluten free

  • My digestion problems led me to learn about gut health, I’m so sad that it’s not talked about enough and especially in health care! It’s so important. I wish someone had told me about it’s importance so I would have taken better care of myself.

  • I always felt my gut and mental health had a connection. After I went vegan and started eating a lot more fiber and less processed sugar my anxiety went from a full 10 to like a 4

  • Pretty sure I had some bacteria eating on my lining like you mentioned…i went keto a few months back and cut a ton out of my diet and did not take supplements or electrolytes. A few months in and all my pants fit fine, but a line across my naval is constantly tight and painful. Bloating after anything goes into my stomach…and farts like I just chugged a 40 liter protein shake 24/7. The doc felt my belly and told me it felt a bit on the raw side and told me to start taking probiotics and more fiber to help. The pain has definitely gone down since then.

  • Do you drink alcohol? If so how often? I suffer from terrible water retention /bloating around my waist which I just cant shift. I know alot is caused by alcohol and stress.
    Just wanted to ask what gut healthy microbiotics would you recommend, I am aware alot that advertise in store built produce are pasteurized which kills off the good bacteria. Im struggling to know what to buy, also where do you get it from? Absolutely love your channel such informative content xx

  • Ok but like that picture on the right side on the thumbnail ist 100% me all the time, even waking up in the morning so I hope this helps

  • This is an interesting topic. I’ve been a relatively petite person my whole life but I’ve had to deal with chronic bloating. Maintaining a healthy micro biome is important but I think part of it, it relates to my poor posture, like I tend to keep my abs not engaged and strain my back muscles throughout the day. This improves if I run or actively engages my abs when I’m walking. I don’t have the science to back this up but I feel like it gets my digestive system going. Without my abs actively engaged, my stomach can continue to extend, harboring excess waste and gas. It makes sense that diet, exercise, sleep are interlinked with overall health.

  • Hi,
    Not to be one of those people giving unsolicited advice, but I was just diagnosed with sleep apnea, so it’s on the brain I dont think (I also dont know…) that snoring is normal for young healthy individuals, so maybe Mario should go to an ENT or sleep specialist, if he hasn’t already, or has any other symptoms of poor sleep (fatigue, for example).

  • For me, carbs literally bloat my belly as i found out recently btw im an endomorph so for other endomorphs here’s my tips for ya 1. Go on a high protein low carb diet or a paleo diet 2. Exercise more especially strength training for building muscles and do HIIT for fat burning 3. Reduce or cut out all processed food and refined sugar
    U are welcomeee:)

  • Hey everyone! �� I feel like gut health has become a pretty sexy topic with lots of products claiming to promote it and lots of ideas on how to take care of it, so I wanted to know exactly what leading scientists can really say with confidence and what’s still a big question mark where all we have is theory ❤️

  • I would totally go for my run then have a couple pieces pizza while watching a movie! I love running and working out AND I love pizza. �� It’s about balance and making good choices, like you said! Put some veggies on that pizza! Cauliflower crust is pretty good too.

    I’m a trainer, Jill, and you’ve been like a long-distance mentor to me since I first bought 30-Day Shred and lost 40 lbs. I became a trainer in 2012 after reading your book ‘Unlimited,’ which made me realize that I could earn a living following my fitness passion! Thank you!

    Keep putting out the common sense info! ����

  • Getting my B.S. in Nutrition Biology at University of California Davis!! This is a cool video and one thing I think is important for the wealth of society is to be able to deliver complexities of health to the public in a way that others can comprehend and hopefully inspire them to investigate further!

  • Thank you for opening my eyes about eating gluten-free products when you don’t have celiac! More people should look into fad diets as weight loss isn’t everything. You could be harming your body if you’re not having the right nutrients ��

  • Can someone please expand on the gluten-free diet potentially leading to heart issues? I’m celiac and get so sick when I have gluten that I’m (tmi, it sucks) stuck on the toilet for two days minimum so I absolutely have to cut it despite my diet being much less delicious:(

  • I really like your channel, but I’m not in agreement with some of your content in this vid: Additional research in mice showed that so-called ketone bodies, a molecular byproduct that gives the ketogenic diet its name, directly impact the gut microbiome in ways that may ultimately suppress inflammation, suggesting evidence for potential benefits of ketone bodies as a therapy for autoimmune disorders

  • I’ve noticed, eating enough but smaller portions, taking pro and prebiotics, sleeping on a regular schedule, and drinking water helps me keep my stomach flatter, but has not helped me lose any weight. Only thing that helps me lose weight is regular exercise. I also have a gluten sensitivity and a thyroid issue. So anyone thinking about taking pro and pre biotics maybe they will help you out as well. Just thought this may help some people interested in taking pre/pro biotics!

  • I have been drinking organic celery juice on an empty stomach in the morning 500mlfor everyday for 7 days and my gut is now healed.its been ages since I suffered from bloating or any digestion issues. trust me it really works
