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.

Passionate believers in whole food plant based diets, no chemicals, minimal pharmaceutical drugs, no GMO's. Fighting to stop climate change and extinction.
All the Know-it alls you have in the Usa, and you have one of the lowest health outcomes in any western country. Eat some plant food, eat some meat, laugh and be happy. Look on these podcasts, 99%, some American, spinning his dietary yarn and selling something, for money. ...Oh and their way is always the right way, they are like the religious zealots. Everyone has a @scientific study that proves their theory.
Eating quality meats/fish/eggs on a whole food diet is quite healthy. Eating 1-2 a day is all you need with a small piece of meat with mostly vegtebles. Also full fat high quality dairy which supplies vitamin k2 . Unfortunately most of the meat or dairy out there is not high quality. Guess you get what you pay for. Tried the vegan diet and I was always hungry because of the constant blood sugar spikes. Feast and fast my friends.
--people who are type A blood and have a sick liver , or have low stomach acid , or Cancer or damaged liver you're not able to process dairy and meat protein that why they feel sick when they eat meat , dairy, fats and oils .
If you have Cancer or a weak liver don't eat meat, dairy or fried food ......
I am type O blood I eat only organic grass-fed meat three times a week .(lamb and goat meet)..no chicken and no fish .And I feel healthy..When I was a Vegan for 12 years I was weak and sickly !...what ever make you feel healthy you should eat ....whether Vegan or meat eater .You should eat What make your body feel good .
High Carbs are killers for me. It causes blotting, gas and abdominal pain. It also causes me to crave food and gain weight. I take the best advice from Keto and vegetarian to develop a meal plan that works best for my body and mind. I think vegan is too religious and extreme.
Vegan diet is extreme yes! Extremely healthy, extremely disease killer, extremely fat burner, extremely lifesaver, extremely mood stabilizer, extremely energy and nutrition efficient and abundant, including sexually, therefore is extremely beneficial and what we should eat everyone, a normal portion, and make daily exercise, push-ups abs, and sit-ups would be enough to start and as a minimum
Rat ice cream after an apple.. seriously dont.. sugar and insulin spike on both counts. But If you must be weak and eat I've cream
Eat it before all other foods containing fat carbs and protein. Because fake sugars process through the system alot faster...if you eat dessert last.. it gets stored as fat!!!
Where do you get your protein? What a marketing scam! Have you ever noticed these days, while at a restaurant, they don't ask you whether you want a particular type of meat with that. What they ask you, is whether you want protein with that? They're obviously been trained not to use the word, "meat". Which gives me hope. So the next time someone asks you that question, respond by saying, "You mean, animal protein?" They'll likely concede that that's what they're talking about, and you can go from there.
Omg I had a conversation with someone on blood pressure drugs statins antacids eating pretzels and tuna sandwich and soda for lunch... and I suggested potatoes... and they were like, aren’t those fattening? I was floored.
I stopped watching when you mentioned your age. 46? All of your hair is grey. I thought you were in your fifties. I was almost inspired to start to eating less meat and not drink so much whiskey. To hell with that.
+Lemon Lindsay From what I've been researching lately, it looks like copper and copper deficiency has something to do with it, in terms of enzymatic reactions dependant on copper. Also, it comes down to bioavailable copper vs. non-bioavailable. So an overload of non-bioavailable copper could lead to toxicity, and it complicates the relationship to zinc and iron. The best source of bioavailable copper is liver. Was your boyfriend eating any of that?
I love Dr. Davis and all his other vegan plant based colleagues, Dr. Mc Dougall, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Greger, Dr Esselstein, Jeff Novick etc. I mean what did we know before these guys came into our lives. I am so thankful for these unconventional doctors making a U-turn out of the old regime and leaving us a trail where we can actually find TRUE health and victory.
A am 67 of course anxiety colesterol very fussy that was about 2 months ago when I started the best way to eat because I was desperate so I am beginning to feel better but I haven’t los any weight o am 172 lb help I am still learning not eating nuts maybe that was it thank so much dr anybody help! May Hod bless you.
There are good aspects to Vegan style, but folks I'm sorry our body's need some fat. Our brains are made mostly from fat... There are good fats , also mostly from advacado, coconut oil to name a few. But we all have free will to chose our eating habits, thats all..
He keeps saying oils are bad but i have been malnourished a lot because of my health condition and ive alwaysbeen told by my doctors to eat lots of fatty oils. I put coconut oil on my gf banana breadlike crazy and it gives me energy
i guess this guy looks good to the ladies (,hes christinas sugar daddy afterall)
but his information is pretty meh -- rookie level, big knowledge gaps, and some misinformation even, a lot of parrotting too
I hate it when people say that bs “Im not here for a long time but a good time” to anyone who really knows nutrition it sounds soooo stupid. I eat to feel good for the whole time not for some of the time.
all good but i really love red wine and hope it does help in my longevity ....hope ....my wifes gran justg passed away at 103and she always had her white wine for dinner so it makes me think ....how...
I think it would be best to eat the right amount of meat mix with veggies and greens. For example maybe some bananas in the morning, treat yourself to some home cooked grilled chicken breast or steak you know with a side of tatoes or mushrooms, then in the evening have just a bowl of salad. That sounds like a reasonable rationing of meat and vegetables, especially if you also do some exercises to stay in shape and healthy.
This is a lot of huffing and puffing pretending to be based on science. But science isn't about huffing and puffing. Food and nurtrition is a vastly complex subject. Industrial farming has taken over to wipe out regulation, put profits before human health and the results of massive obesity are evident all around us.
I personally became a vegan five years ago. My athritis faded away, and all my "numbers" at check up are normal. I also went to 235 pounds in the 80's eating the Standard American Diet. I managed to lose 100 pounds of it over a five year span. This is the result of controling intake and developing good eating habits over the long haul. That doesn't lend itself to huffing and puffing.
Yes, the SAD, Standard American Diet, leads to obesity and metabolic syndrome which is an increase of chronic debilitating, deadly diseases--obesity, diabetes, heart diseases, cancer, osteo arthritis, etc. All these are based on inflammation which is what comes about when you ingest animal food products that come with a bacteria load. The white blood cells have to take care of the bacteria, dead or alive, and once the white blood cells come out of our bone marrow they don't go back. The congregate in our joints, blood vessels, lungs, brain, and lymph system, places which result in inflammation. That's what is wrong with animal based foods.
This phenomenon has spread worldwide as other nations mimic our meat based diet which is unsustainable and brings about protein overload. The problem with nutrition is not too little protein, it is too little fiber. That's what is missing from the SAD.
Meat and dairy are addictive. They have no mineral content which can be used since they get used up from neutralizing the acid meat and dairy cause. In fact dairy causes so high acid (acidosis) the calcium gets used up and then sucks out the calcium in our bodies and bones to neutralize the acid and IT is the cause of low calcium and osteoporosis. Yet both cause acidosis and acidic toxins which develop and cause destruction of body organs, tissues and over production of disease micro organisms and free radicals.
Meat also uses up our enzymes which then are deficient to destroy free radicals and even digest all the meat and other proteins.
Not really. Its the addictive flavors of the sugar and fat and salt and sauces. Otherwise that stuff is bland. My food MUST be flavorful so I make my salads so bursting with flavor, my need for pleasure is fulfilled.
Hey doctor...People around the world in some cultures don't have as many food sources as rich Americans do...By economics they eat less, so they will weigh less. Americans tend to be focused on the components of food because there are so many choices and conflicting information. Gaining or losing weight has never been about components of food but calorie in Versus calorie out....Both diets, Meat based (ketogenic) and Vegan anyone can lose or gain weight. You simply must be aware of the amount of calories you place in your mouth between sunrise and sunset for your particular metabolism....That's it....But I suspect you know that and this is not so much a crusade about healthy but morality, veganism and killing animals...Sorry but you will never win this....Afterall everything consumes everything to survive. That's been going on for billions of years on the Earth...Even the Venus fly trap (a plant) consumes animals to live....If you want to eat vegan have at it, but don't try and push it on everyone pretending it's the ultimate diet when this is all moral based.
The plane crash survivors in the Andes resorted to cannibalism to survive until rescue. That does not mean it is the healthiest diet! Eskimos on their carnivore diet live about 10 years shorter than other Canadians. Now that mankind has survived to this point we can stop surviving on animal products to optimize our health. WFPB is it.
Yes to Caroline. The reason we survived on the evolutionary ladder, is because we're omnivores. We ate everything we could keep down!
There are places in the world where veggies hardly grow!
That's why desert American Indians ate mostly protein also Eskimos, also Mongols living of frozen steppes, who eat lots of milk yogurt and even drink a little of yaks blood in winter to survive, while letting the animal eat what's left of grain and grasses stored away.
Everyone survived on a diffetent diet depending on their environment! The difference is it was natural food, not processed. And they had to move their bodies a lot for the business of survival. So they didn't have to think about exercise. It wasn't a choice!
They also had less psychological stress. They had survival stress, that they dealt with. You don't have time to be neurotic when you are preparing tools for hunting, or foraging for plants and fruits to eat.
So it seems as if common sense would tell us that to stay healthy, we move, eat and drink as natural as we can, and avoid unnecessary kinds of stress.
Man this guy started talking about eating potatoes and I was thinking "That sounds uber shitty" but then he said black beans and salsa and avacado and I'm going to the kitchen to make it. I eat allot of meat, and have been steadily gaining weight since my 20s, also suffered a spinal chord injury and pretty much stopped doing cardio, but if potatoes can help satiate me, Im down
I’ve been 100% vegetarian for about a month now - training for a half marathon - and tbh I really don’t feel much different. But logically I know that the health of my blood has to be much better. Dropped some weight which I know is good.
So what about cholesterol? And it's positive relationship with testosterone, does one not need cholesterol found in eggs and meat in order to support healthy and high levels of test?
Honest question, just wondering and asking with my limited understanding of nutrition
Your body makes all the cholesterol it needs; about 2000mg a day. You don't need to eat dietary cholesterol, however if you do, your body uses equilibrium to make sure you're not getting too much or too little. For example, if you eat an egg which contains 300mg of cholesterol then your body will simply compensate and produce 1700mg instead to make sure you have enough. The cholesterol myth was also debunked a long time ago and you should not fear eating dietary cholesterol as it opposes no threat to your health. There are far worse things out there such as GMO, HFCS and trans fats.
He's totally wrong about consuming fat vs. vegetables. I can have a bulletproof coffee in the morning and 3 eggs cooked in 42g of coconut oil at 2PM. The consumption of these two items total only 955 calories according to Cronometer. That will last me the whole day. I won't have to eat until tomorrow. When I was a Vegan I was always snacking during the day.
More and more people get it, that eating corpses and diary makes you sick. It is not about the arguments, you just have to watch the people in real life...in average the non meateaters are much healthier.
You have no right to speak from experience you've never had. I have the most energy I've ever had in my life, you should try it! Just make sure you eat high-quality, high-calorie fruit. You're in for a treat, my friend!
Archeology tells us that Homo Erectus used to regularly cook food with fire. Hominids (and humans) have kept evolving since then. In fact, many traits of modern humans, like small jaws and weak stomach acid, are adaptations to a cooked diet.
Guys high protein diet doesn't give you muscles. You really dont need as much protein as you think. I think i consume between 50 and maybe 70 grams a day sometimes way less because i only eat when i feel hungry and i am still able to keep my muscle mass and im getting stronger. When you eat plant base most of everything has protein. Besides your body doesn't even use all the protein so its a waste if you consume too much...
A.T. Hiker I’m assuming it’s because if you eat a high protein diet that comes from animals, it also comes with a lot of fat and calories. So, if a person does not work out a lot, they have a lot of fat instead of muscle.
I agree. It's one thing to say that high protein diets are unhealthy, but that they cause muscle loss is an extraordinary claim. I mean, there is a reason why virtually all professional bodybuilders eat those horrendously unbalanced hyperproteic diets. And die young like flies, but that's another (sad) story.
Wow what a question.
Here's my answer...."food"
You should eat food.
Preferably plants. Way more nutritious than dirt.
You know there's a smart alek saying to themself.
Where do you think all the nutrition in plants comes from, dirt.
Okay that's settled. A filtered dirt diet.
How about using plants as the filter...awesome idea Jeff.
Halberdier Yeah, but people think that people were unhealthier, which they Then explain by saying it's because of the low meat. But its actually because of antibiotics that we made such a step forward at the start of the 20th century.
TRIKEN That is true for pre-WW2 western diets too. Traditionally, most people had a little piece of meat once a week on Sundays (if they could even afford that), the rest was all starches and vegetables with very little dairy.
+Miriam Woolf you're most disconnected to nature if you are vegan, you literally have to take pills from big pharma for Vitamin A, B6, B12, D, K2, carnosine, carnitine creatine, taurine, heme iron, coQ10.
Life is death. The circle of life is based on death, if we stop all tigers and lions from eating other lions, overpopulation would occur. Why would you go vegan if plant agriculture kills millions of insects? Fields all around the world are being placed in former forested areas, fields which are made for PLANTS. I could kill one cow and live off it for 6 months, vegans have to eat so many plants to fuel their unnatural Diet. I haven't even talked about how vegans pollute the world. I can source most of my meat locally, or nationally, but no vegans eat food in season. They eat oranges and bananas and tropical fruits from thousands of miles away, they source their rice from Asia. The 15 largest shipping ships cause more pollution than 650 million cars, I'm pretty sure. How is that saving the environment? Name one vegan that eats all their food in season. You most likely won't
This guy has no depth, he doesn't talk about lectins in beans, food allergies, how not all calories are created equal. He talks about canola oil when anyone health conscious knows you don't eat canola. Coconut oil, grassfed butter/ghee and unheated olive oil are all very healthy for you. You don't cook with any oil that is liquid at room temperature. Sugars and many carbs are the cause of most inflammation not the meat. Carbs aren't created equally either, sweet potatoes or yams are great carbs while most breads and pastas are not.
Butter, ghee, and olive oil are NOT healthy for you. You need to start reading the right studies and stop buying into this grassfed bullshit. Whole food plant based is healthiest diet period, end of story.
Dr. Davis does not and did not advocate using canola oil or eating sugar! Give me the link to the point in his talk where he does. And no, fruit =/= sugar. When you cut out meat, dairy and eggs, you can eat fruit without getting to be overweight. Vegans are the lowest BMI dietary group in the USA. That includes WFPB vegans, as well as junk food vegans averaged together.
patty 8873 ok since you find that unimportant, let's look at misinterpretation data as well as leaving out huge pieces of the puzzle. How about the canola oil or advocating increased sugar intake? No one should believe those are good for you. I haven't fallen for anything, my diet is perfect for me and my lifestyle.
It’s excess fats that causes insulin resistance and glucose Processing issues. If you get your fat intake down to healthy functional levels, then the carbs which the body uses as it’s main fuel can be processed normally again and promote more regulated and functional body health. My uncle is a fat diabetic and even he says that after he juices from whole plant foods, his blood sugar doesn’t even spike from the juice. This suggests that even with insulin resistance and high fat consumption, one can still see the difference between consuming fiberless processes food like products, and consuming actual food with its natural fiber in it. Keep consuming more low fat and high carbohydrate foods, plants, and soon the insulin resistance can reverse and return to the more normal conditions of processing carbohydrates, our main source of fuel. Carbohydrates, Fat, and protein, are all important factors in diet. But the public has become confused from all the different voices and industries with conflicts of interest, about the ratios and levels of carbohydrates, fat, and protein, so much that people who choose to not do their own research to get to a point where they understand more HOW the body works and processes nutrients in different ratios and levels, (all info that can be found online with critical thinking and careful reviewing) are left having no idea who to believe or why. With an already compromised body, it can be difficult to even know where to start and what questions to ask. I encourage to just keep thinking critically and making observations. After all, that’s how people like Garth and this information came to be, through critical careful thinking and testing and reviewing and comparing. Keep that scientific mind going! :) cheers to our health everyone! Let’s choose the healthy option and lifestyle practices so we can love good lives and be available for others who could use our support and maybe they will get healthy and help others do the same. Have a good night everyone.
+andressoccerplayer94 Fats block the cells' ability to absorb the sugar, causing insulin resistance. No one on a whole food, plant based diet is going to get type 2 diabetes. Neil Barnard has some good presentations on the topic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLqINF26LSA
My dad has two older brothers and one younger brother. His two older brothers are vegans. He and his younger brother are meat eaters. The eldest brother died right before turning 70yo of Pancreatic Cancer. His second eldest stopped being able to drive nor walk without a cane at age 70. My dad turned 74 this month and he still delivers mail in Chicago working full time and even overtime. The youngest turned 70 and is still healthy with no signs of degenerate disease. I do not believe in any extremes when it comes to dieting whether it is Paleo, Keto, Vegan. Low Carb...people who turn Nutrition into Dogma like some their sick strict religion usually are the ones who end up with deficiencies and health issues.
Well, he is pretty fit. His suit fits him well and compliments his grey hair. Then you have that tan skin. I bet he boats a lot and looks even hotter in a white t shirt and swim trunks. I also bet his calves fit his leg structure and does not have horse legs...you know the tiny ankles thing. And his face.....he looks like he is a nice guy but don't get on his wrong side cuz he could throw down. I would probably tell him to sit down, be quiet and look pretty. One can be shallow and accurate at the same time.
I eat raw meat, raw eggs, and raw dairy and feel better than ever. I've tried eating the foods he talks about and didn't feel good at all. I hate eating that much fiber, which by the way fiber is indigestable by our bodies. The primal diet by Aajonus Vonderplanitz is so much better.
There is a reason that omnivores almost always cook meat and eggs and pasteurize milk. You might avoid foodbourne illness in the short term, but not in the long term. Besides, I have educated myself about the health consequences of animal products, even if they are cooked etc. I also know from first hand experience. I am naturally thin, but for years now, have stayed on the WFPB vegan diet for the other health advantages.
vlt11spc I really like the Aajonus quote "anything the medical profession says, do the opposite 99% of the time and you'll be right"... reminds me of Ray Peat, on of my favorite minds that you seem to be open minded enough to enjoy ;)
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
