What you haven't discussed is Walnuts. Walnut tree roots deliberately seek out Arsenic and deposit it in the nuts. The bigger older trees are much worse than young trees. Now look at that bag of walnuts. Can you see which ones come from old trees and which from young trees?
Man... I eat unsalted walnuts, peanuts, 1 Brazil nut (selenium), almonds and pecans daily. Like a cup a day. I’m 46, 5’8” 146 pound woman, with hypothyroidism and my weight is completely stable (as in it varies by a couple hundred grams daily)
I don’t eat any breads, packaged products/junk food (even vegan junk foods are out), but DO eat Mediterranean vegan WFPB.
I have no idea what I’m doing 🤷♀️ 😂
It’s really hard to stay lean when your diet is based off fattening carbohydrates. Funny I can eat all the calories my body wants with meat and fat and never gain a lbs. I guess I must be the anomalous observation
Hi. Thanks for the video! I usually consume around 100-150gr of nuts daily. Otherwise it’ll very difficult to meet my caloric needs. I’m fit and do Crossfit 5x a week. Why peanuts and cashew are not recommended? Cashew are my favourite! 😄😄 thanks!!
who saw the ad with the obese human jumping off the diving board before the video started. he needs to go vegan quick. before it's too late... this is not how men should look basically blobs with a head and limbs...
All these diet proponents fear mongering against nuts because of this so-called worry that nobody can control their portions.
Total nonsense. The irony is that it's usually because of the terrible fad high carb, extreme low fat/protein diets these vegan diet "gurus" promote, that lead to people binging on foods like nuts because their body is crying out for some healthy essential fats and protein.
Stop feeding your patients extreme imbalanced 80/10/10 and 90/5/5 diets and then you'll see your patients stopping binging on higher protein/fat foods and eating these foods in sensible portions like most other people have been managing to do for thousands of years.
Plus anyway higher/frequent nut intake is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, total cancer and all-cause mortality, and mortality from respiratory disease, diabetes, and infections.
Virtually every study on nuts has found that they actually result in a mild weight loss and improved weight control, rather than significant weight gain.
There was no argument.
All I stated was that the traditional Okinawan diet pattern contained small quantities of foods such as fish and pork, of which they eat all parts of the animal traditionally. Hence, its nowhere near a strict vegan diet and shouldn't be compared.
honestly I think it's hilarious the nonsense that is spewed on nutrition, people think this is a religion, the facts dont agree with you.. you have obviously no idea how much vitamin d there are on animal products naturally (hint: next to nothing) and mushrooms have vitamin d too btw so don't claim bs please. But it's also basically nothing compared to the amount you get from sun exposure
"There are also many other factors which are supposedly responsible for the longevity benefits in the Okinawans etc, such as mild calorie restriction, nutrient density and so on"
the only way youre getting calorie restriction with tons of animal products is by either making yourself sick (keto) or imense will power, or maybe your diet was even worse before.. Nutrient density, exactly, that's a point for vegans, ever heard of dr joel fuhrman and his nutritarian diet? well it's all whole plant foods, why on earth is that I wonder?
"...excessive fruit and then end up with high triglycerides, low HDL and multiple other lipid/cholesterol abnormalities."
hahaha and yet there are plenty of people who eat literally nothing but fruit and have great triglycerides levels, and low ldl, and their liver is doing great too btw
"Reduced HDL particle size is thought to correlate better with coronary artery disease." if knew anything about this topic you'd understand the evidence for the ldl and heart disease link is actually imensely stronger..
what are these lipid abnormalities you are talking about rofl, the only thing you have on your side is hdl, which isn't a problem when your ldl is around 60.. Please show this evidence on people eating mostly whole food vegan with these abnormalities, it doesn't matter the macro ratio
It's not just low HDL, but reduced HDL particle size which excessive high carb diets have been shown to cause, along with high triglycerides.
Reduced HDL particle size is thought to correlate better with coronary artery disease.
The fact remains, that any healthy balanced plant-based diet shouldn't be causing someone to have a number of lipid/cholesterol abnormalities that we often see in the excessive high carb/extreme low fat vegan dieters.
Yeah fish is one of the best dietary sources of vitamin B12 and oily fish such as sardines contain about 40% of the DRI for vitamin D, so it provides a boost compared to consuming no dietary vitamin D source.
Quarter cup of Walnuts or Pecans a day are the best. Ration that quarter cup for times throughout the day when you're eating foods with a lot of other phytonutrients/antioxidants (like in a salad or with some berries or fruit) to help absorb those phytochemicals!
Virtually every intervention study on nuts has found they actually result in mild weight loss and improved weight control, rather than promoting significant weight gain.
Studies have also found that nuts reduce abdominal adiposity(belly fat) and have an anti-obesity effect.
So this is why all the fear mongering from these pseudo-science vegan "gurus" makes me laugh, because it isn't evidence-based in the slightest.
Nuts are one of the healthiest plant-based food-groups we can consume for reducing risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality from heart disease.
Walnuts in particular are the best choice, as they offer additional cardiovascular health benefits over other tree nuts. Walnuts have been shown to improve endothelial function and are a great plant-based source of Omega-3 fatty acids(ALA).
Danya Christine Smith Well if you replace potato chips with like almost anything you will have easier time losing weight. What these people are saying is that adding nuts and therefore eating less more high carb lower caloric density plant foods will probably lead to less weightloss and even weight gain in some individuals. Foods are not good or bad but better and worse. Nuts are better than potato chips. Oatmeal is probably better in terms of feeling satiated than nuts. Green peas is probably better than the oatmeal and kale is probably better than the green peas.
Johannes Anttila I still think eating nutts csn help with weight loss provided u drop something else out and replace with nutts . Im alot more satisfied 4 longer after a handful of nutts then a bag of chips . If that lady dropped something else out instead of nutts shed have lost weight just as well. i just think nutts r so good 4 you 😍
Are you serious? You want to know how planets form, because we know how that happens. Or are you proposing yet another logical fallacy and arguing from ignorance about the universe itself? A bit of the god of the gaps as it were.
The music sounds like "Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb da da da da dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb da da da da dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb da da da da dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb da da da da ... repeat...
This makes no sense, someone eating 1500 calories is likely in a caloric deficit and should be losing weight.
If they were eating nuts very sparingly as you claim, then it sounds as if nuts weren't playing any substantial role in their diet at all.
Doesn't sound like a very healthy plant-based diet anyway that only contains a few foods and doesn't include nuts or legumes/beans. Which are two of the best plant-based food-groups for longevity and reducing mortality from cardiovacular disease and other diseases according to the research.
Here is some of the latest science on nuts and weight control:
"Higher nut consumption was not associated with greater body weight gain during 8 y of follow-up in healthy middle-aged women. Instead, it was associated with a slightly lower risk of weight gain and obesity. The results of this study suggest that incorporating nuts into diets does not lead to greater weight gain and may help weight control."
Based on the available evidence from prospective studies (also supported by RCTs and cross-sectional studies), long-term nut consumption is associated with lower weight gain and overweight/obesity."
"The protein, fiber, and unsaturated fat content in nuts may also increase thermogenesis and resting energy expenditure"
"Several cross-sectional analyses have shown an inverse association between higher nut consumption and lower body weight. "
"In addition, several independent prospective studies found that increasing nut consumption was associated with lower weight gain over relatively long periods of time. Moreover, high consumption of nuts (especially walnuts) has been associated with lower diabetes risk"
"In conclusion, higher nut consumption does not appear to cause greater weight gain; rather, nuts may be beneficial for weight control by contributing to satiety and potentially improving long-term adherence to healthful diets"
Anecdotal experiences are worthless as we have no idea how much nuts these people were eating.
Calories in vs calories out still always apply to an extent. If these people are eating 500-1000 extra calories from any food and remove it, then it will result in weight loss.
Everything is about balance. A one ounce portion of nuts daily or several times a week results in mild weight loss and improved weight control from the studies, not promoting weight gain.
Its, of course, possible to still lose weight whilst hypothyroid, just for many it's often significantly more difficult or often the reason why they aren't losing weight even whilst eating a diet with a caloric deficit.
Nobody is telling anyone to eat unlimited or excessive amounts of nuts though, only you.
By frequent/high consumption these studies are meaning in the context of a balanced diet i.e an ounce portion daily or several times a week.
If you go to an obese person and tell them, hey, nuts are healthy and slimming, eat as many nuts as you want, that person might even lose weight and be healthier, but don't pretend that they will get to a bmi of 20 or somethng rofl, it's ridiculous.. now if you do the same but let them eat kilos of veggies every day, that is very plausible to happen, maybe if I phrase it this way you'll understand this simple logic
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRxMhqdmb2Y&t=17s There is evidence, that nuts are not making you fat. I suggest you to watch these videos and of course read study journals. I myself am eating nuts roughly 150g per day. Mixture of peanuts (not a nut, but a legume), almonds, cashew and few Brazil nuts (lots of selenium). I am vegan and I am not gaining extra bodyfat by eating nuts. But one thing I am gaining, and that is muscle mass.
What a lie, its not about how much calories you consume it's about what calories you consume and how your body metabolises it. This is well known to anybody that has done more than a few hours of research.
+Teenage Nutrition The difference is no one can eat 4000 calories of fruit (thats around 88 oranges) without their body telling them its had enough. but u sure can eat as much cookies as your stomach can fit. Eat as much raw organic fruit as you like, youll feel great afterwards, eat as much cookies as you like and you will feel crap afterwards.
Peter Rabitt Not if you eat them both in the same time frame (say 24 hours). I don't think anyone could eat 3000 calories worth of oranges (looked it up: it's 48 medium oranges) in one day but if you did and ate 3000 calories of cookies, which is 56 1/2 Oreos or 35 Pecan Sandies cookies the next day you would still put on almost the same amount of fat. A little less with the oranges because they contain fiber and you don't process the full amount of calories from a food that contains fiber. Plus you burn more energy just digesting them. 3000 calories is still 3000 calories no matter what it comes from.
Teenage Nutrition eat 4000 calories of fruit and see how many times you go to the bathroom after a few days of eating soft , water filled fruits. Which you know you need moisture in your bowel and just in general for your organs to work. Come on cookies won't in the long run have the same effect.
Googleplease Die okay lol. Fruit is super healthy and eating 7-8 servings a day is great but eating 1000 + calories from fruit over your daily calorie use will make you fat after the gloygen is stored sorry.
Cashews and peanuts are highly poisonous when raw, not sure how much of those poisons are neutralized in the cooking process . Your body will only tell you when its had enough if you eat raw food. Any cooked food can easily be over eaten.
You said last year you were going to change the music. Stop BSing. The music is God awful...I'm at the point where I don't even want to click on these videos anymore because I hate it that much. pleeeeeeeeaaaase change it. 🙏
Well this was helpful. I keep hearing I need to not eat nuts to loose weight but I don't like nuts. I just like a few in my morning oatmeal or on a salad. I can't stand to just eat a nut. Yuck. So I guess I'm fine.
