    😆😂😂😂 " properly raised animal positives." No one wants to die and there's no nice way to kill someone who doesn't want to die. Ignorance is not bliss.

    it's normal to think about food constantly when first transitioning to a vegan diet but that goes away as it becomes more habitual and you figure out what you like eating and what you don't. I'm 2 and half years into being vegan and I don't have to plan or worry about food unless i'm hungry or meal prepping.

    I did keto for 6 weeks and then quarantine happened. I lived off of ramen for a week after that. Now, slowly starting back into keto, still under quarantine. Though doing OMAD now, because my dishwasher died and I'm lazy and not doing my workout anyway.

    "It's very restrictive." is what you said towards the end of the video. Honestly it's not restrictive because the variety of vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds is way higher then the handful of common meat, dairy and eggs that people eat. Restrictive is not the right word. Challenging works better because at first it is a challenge to understand how to shift to plant based vegan, but once you know how to do it, it becomes second nature. I'm glad you tried it for 30 days. Hopefully you are still doing it for your health, the planet and the animals.

    In my opinion, plant-based eating is most certainly the way to go, but it is very hard to maintain.
    You can get protein from legumes and other foods, so I don't find veganism to be bad at all protein-wise.
    I think the goal is to put the effort in to eat less meat, particularly red meat.
    I eat mostly plants, but when i do eat meat its no more than 3 times a week, and its chicken, turkey, or fish.
    Of course it's not ideal, but it's a major step towards the ideal. My dad ate red meat almost every day, and he passed away from cancer and his health was pretty bad. I think plant-based eating could have certainly helped. If you look at the world's blue zones, you'll also find its mostly vegetables they're eating.

    I love crab legs, oysters, a medium steak, cows milk too much. I’m lactose intolerant and still can’t stop drinking cow milk. I hate coconut milk and almond milk. Have tried each for over a year each 😵. Forced myself, expecting my palate to get use to it to no avail.

    • Joonha Shcal
      Joonha Shcal Day ago

      Yeah, there's nothing like milk. I can't drink milk on my diet (not vegan) and I just don't bother with alternatives. Coconut milk is wonderful for cooking though. Hemp milk's fine though. I wouldn't call it milk but just as a beverage it's kinda nice. Can't consume that one either though.

    Ive been vegan since I was born. I was given soy milk at birth and i've never felt better since I was drinking soy as a newborn. Now I have oat milk to ad to my diet. Flaxseed oil is soo soo good. My B12 levels are perfect. LDL, blood work all perfect on a 100% soy diet.
    Thank you for speeding the word on being vegan. It is the most healthiest way to eat.

    A plant-based diet is the only way...if you care about the planet, the animals and world hunger instead of only nutrition. And per those who have read ALL the research, a plant-based diet is superior to one which includes animal products, anyway...if you can be healthy without paying someone to torture and murder animals, why would you not choose that? There is no way to "properly" raise animals for food; some methods are simply more sadistic than others. It's so "extreme" not to torture and murder animals? If there is no one size fits all diet for us, that would make us the only species in that predicament. What works for me is for people not to be destroying the environment, contributing to world hunger, exploiting sentient beings and ultimately causing pandemics such as we are experiencing right now. Can we all please grow up, wake up, smarten up and go vegan?

    After 365 days travelling and working remotely in 2019, we took a challenge of going Vegan for a 360 days this year. I had never been Vegeterian nor Vegan before. Almost 3 months and I feel more energized with less sleep, can exercise longer, and, surprisingly, not missing a meat at all.🤔😎

    Vegan and vegetarian are completely two different things. Vegan are anything that are produced by animals including milk, eggs, and cheese.

  • JustDoIt
    JustDoIt 5 days ago

    I've been a vegetarian for 18 years now, I started eating eggs two years ago to increase my protein and energy levels. I didn't see any difference. I think when you are veg, you know that you are cutting out on protein so you make extra effort to check your food. Non-vegetarians just rely on meat to give them all their energy, so vegans can end up healthier than non-veg for sure.

    Max is right. You don't need to have a vegan diet to be healthy, if you don't buy extremely processed food you'll be relatively healthier. Animal products don't cause an unhealthy diet, just processed stuff, especially with a lot of additives.

    What I am asking myself: Ok, so you take out animal products and replace them with lots of other great stuff. That last part improves your blood values. But what if you would 1) eat all the produce you eat when eating vegan but 2) also eat animal products? What would this do with your health? Because it seems this is most of the time the outcome of these kinds of dives into veganism. I understand that if I replace meat with tomato, there will be tomato in my blood instead of meat. But what happens if I keep both? Is it taking out the animal products which make you healthier or... adding more healthy stuff to your diet in general? :)

      b12 at times, but these are added to animal products. More and more vegan products are being fortified as new products are created, there are also supplements. It would be the same for unfortified animal products, but plants are just a superior food source.

  • Elena-Sophie Gräser
    Elena-Sophie Gräser 12 days ago

    This guy who did research because of his sick mom... I get what he is saying. And even if you can live healthy consuming moderate amounts of animal products, we need to remember one thing: Whether they are ethically sourced or not, we are exploiting animals. Chickens are shredded alive for eggs, calves are separated from their moms at birth for milk, and animals who have the same desire to live as we do, have their throats slit for their flesh. No matter if free range, ethical or whatever else there is. So if we can thrive of a plant based diet, that is better for the environment and doesn't harm any other beings, why wouldn't we choose that option? Even if cracking an egg is simply faster than making scrambled tofu, those few minutes are not worth anyones life. We need to look at this from the victims perspective. If we were the ones being exploited, we would want the same... It's 2020, no one has to die for a good burger.

      I love oatmilk personally but almond milk and soy milk are good to. Rice, beans (legumes), potatoes and oats are what you want to eat mainly. Make sure to master some sauce recipes as it will help a lot. And keep going you're on the right track and you're doing great! It's a journey and you gotta enjoy getting there. Best of luck =)

    Vegan for one year, the whole being overwhelmed on having to plan out everything and watch macros goes away once you have been doing it for awhile you just remember what nutrients is in everything and you know everything about the foods you usually eat, so u kind of just do it in your head, or you just trust yourself and know that you are eating balanced. It gets really easy 😊
