An acclaimed surgeon specializing in weight loss delivers a paradigm-shifting examination of the diet and health industry’s focus on protein, explaining why it is detrimental to our health and can prevent us from losing weight.
Whether you are seeing a doctor, nutritionist, or a trainer, all of them advise you to eat more protein. Foods, drinks, and supplements are loaded with extra protein. Many people use protein for weight control, to gain or lose pounds, while others believe it gives them more energy and is essential for a longer, healthier life. Now, Dr. Garth Davis, an expert in weight loss asks, “Is all this protein-making us healthier?”
The answer, he emphatically argues, is NO. Too much protein is actually making us sick, fat, and tired, according to Dr. Davis. If you are getting adequate calories in your diet, there is no such thing as protein deficiency. The healthiest countries in the world eat far less protein than we do and yet we have an entire nation on a protein binge getting sicker by the day.
As a surgeon treating obese patients, Dr. Davis was frustrated by the ever-increasing number of sick and overweight patients, but it wasn't until his own health scare that he realized he could do something about it. Combining cutting-edge research, with his hands-on patient experience and his years dedicated to analyzing studies of the world’s longest-lived populations, this explosive, groundbreaking lecture reveals the truth about the dangers of protein and shares a proven approach to weight loss, health, and longevity.

Ok too much protein causes accelerated aging...i get it. IGF 1 ...etc. But then Clement says too much fruit causes aging with it's glycation properties. And Esselstyn says too much..in fact almost ANY fat..causes aging...Would somebody please take me to the planet where my food is?
betzi they’re both sort of right and wrong. clement is referring to the aging affects of sugar because of glycation but the problem is that the only way this happens is when you have chronically high blood sugar levels, and the way this happens is excess fat clogs up insulin receptors leading to insulin resistance and high blood sugars, i.e. type 2 diabetes, which is why esselstyn is also partially right. btw, esselstyn only says eat 0 fat to patients trying to reverse heart disease. Eat more fruit because fruit actually improves insulin sensitivity, but don’t go overboard, and same with fat, as long as your eating around maintenance level of calories, and majority plant foods you should be fine.
The key here is vegetables. Whatever type of dietary approach you make you must eat plenty of vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, sprouts, kale etc. Meat in the diet isn’t a problem as long as you include these. Eat lots of meat with fries, grains, sugar and seed oils then you’re inviting trouble. Whatever you eat just eat plenty of greens with it.
AMEN !!!! WELL SAID !!!!
I WENT VEGAN 65 days ago ... AND THE CHANGE IS HUGE FOR ME !!!!
MY TREADMILL TRAINING ALONG WITH VEGAN LIFE STYLE IS WHY I HAVE SUCCESS WHILE REVERSING my 52 year old formerly stressed out body ... which has today (Jan.5/18) lost 55.2 pounds since NOV.1/17 HalleluJAH :)
I started with 300 pounds on NOV.1/17 - became VEGAN- I eat 3 times daily- NO SNACKS- presently about 1500 calories/day recently ((after starting with only consuming about 1200 calories a day)) & now walk uphill about 7 km daily twice daily - once just before lunch and again just before dinner AND CONTINUE TO LOSE about 25 pounds every MONTH- I am presently 244.8 pounds -
I am luxCRUSADER at “MyFitnessPal.com” ... soon I’ll be incorporating weight training and interval running after hopefully losing another 25 pounds next month ...
NO REFINED SUGARS / SALTS & GRAINS :) NO HUNGER PAINS :) I eat just enough to get me to the next workout which is just before the subsequent meal ...
I also carefully monitor my sodium intake and presently have cut out all dehydrating beverages like tea/ coffee - I HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OVER APPETITE AND WATER INTAKE :)
Basically OATMEAL/“et al” for breakfast....
Little bit of high Fiber/starchy food with ALOT of FRESH GREEN VEGETABLES for LUNCH- ....fruits with nuts OR almond butter spread on VEGAN BREAD with frozen raspberries OR low caloric soup for dinner “etc” :)
So far I have easily lost 55.2 pounds in 65 days :) 9 inches off belt line :) WHILE continuing to enjoy my present leisurely daily 14 km treadmill strolls :)
Last- but NOT LEAST- I have FULLY EMBRACED THE TRUE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST to have a PERFECT STRESS FREE LIFE :D so I don’t eat emotionally anymore :)
Doc, I understand the frustration. As a board member of my local hospital, I have tried to share this information with the providers and also my fellow board members. They look at me like I'm from another planet, and what I'm saying must be crazy. I just learned that a hospital 50 miles away recently implemented a WFPBD, and offer classes and diabetic teaching, so I'll be visiting them next week to see if they have any suggestions. Their stated goal is to become the healthiest city in Texas.
Kathy Fausett they look at you like you're crazy because their patients don't want to hear it. Maybe if they are lucky they'll get a few to quit smoking or one or two to give up read meat etc people just want a pill and to get out of there. Drugs are more profitable anyhow...educating the masses is where it is at
