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.

THat five or ten extra years loosing everything you have to meds or a nursing home: extending your life for the worst years you will experience in life! Well, my eyes just see miserable "extended lives," looks more like a curse to me.....
My Dad is 93, aunt was 102, and they eat, breath, and drink all the poisons you fear daily.
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.
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.
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.
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.
+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 ;)

Haha 😂 I have really actually started liking apples and now when I am hungry that what I usually go for to eat😂 add a little bit of cinnamon which is also good for you and you got yourself a little snack. I used to love adding peanut butter also but got to be careful with that stuff.
I used to do quite a bit of cardio and I had to watch what I ate too. I've switched to more resistance/weight training (with a little bit of cardio) and now I can have all the peanut butter I want - I'm actually having trouble getting enough calories, if anything. And a better, more toned physique too, which is a nice added bonus.
God has also recently gotten me to start eating healthy😊 biggest thing if God made it for us to eat then we should eat it and if man has changed it in a lab or added non natural things to it we probably shouldn't eat it.
+King85Kong The bible is bull shyt . They also thought the world was flat, and that the earth was the center of the universe. But if someone can convince you to pay them money to hang out with the saved I guess its a job.
God made animals feel pain and suffer so you can eat their dead rotting bodies ? what a strange god that would want 56 billion of his babies to die horrible deaths a year for something that makes his other creations of human ill . I'm thinking thats not so much god but mans greed. If you truly believed he made those animals for you to eat youd eat your dog , youd stop at roadkill and eat that too. I don't see why your god would want people to throw 6 billion male baby chicks into blenders because they dont make eggs, or why he'd want you to pay people to forcibly inseminate cows and carry their babies for 9 months just to have them taken away and all her sons killed so that we could have another species breastmilk. Why does your god want us to breastfeed from animals all our lives? why only cows and goats ? why not cats and dogs and pigs too?
These things have nothing to do with God but man disrespecting life and destroying their own health and the planet .This is about greed for a flavor and conditioning through marketing and lies .
Look on youtube for
what the health
dairy is scary
male chicks ground up
and then tell me thats what your god wants
You folks are sharing the load a crap. Humans are not all the same. I found it what it takes to thrive. I also found what doesn't allow me to thrive, and that's any iteration of veganism, even with the most soulful prudence in practical application. I live in reality to be healthy, veganism doen'st do that. Colon cancer is not about being vegan or non-vegan, colon cancer is just one disease of many interrelated kinds due to congestion within the body. Starches are prime for causing that. Overall body integrity is what I judge. The entire body.
That is not sustainable. People have been trying to lose weight using will power for a long time with very few achieving success in the long term. Vegans have the lowest BMI of any dietary group in the USA. That includes the WFPB vegans averaged together with the junk food vegans!
It is also hard with children, because they surely have or will have friends who eat meat and dairy. That way you don t alienate them and in the future with its education they Will make the change themselves.
This guy is only giving you half the truth. Homo sapiens are alkaline. Acid foods make you sick. Unnatural, man-made, acidic food = wheat, beans, rice, potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, the list goes on. Basically if it doesn't have seeds in it, it's not natural. Earth grows fruits and vegetables with seeds. That's how they reproduce naturally. No seeds = plant goes extinct, get it? Stop listening to half truths and go watch Dr. Sebi's videos. Alkaline, electric food is for alkaline electric homo sapiens.If it's not alkaline or does not induce an alkaline reaction, it wasn't meant to go in your body. End of story.
