Doctor Reviews Meatless Burgers | Impossible, Beyond & More!

  • Published on Jun 13, 2019
  • After my successful 30-day vegan challenge I decided to give you an in-depth look into this new meatless burger or vegan burger craze! I ordered five meatless burgers and a single beef one for comparison's sake. I will say these burgers are technically not vegan because I included cheese and the brioche bun but they are still vegetarian! I love cheese. Let me know if you've tried any of these!
    Burgers Included in this Review
    - Impossible Burger
    - Beyond Burger
    - Quinoa Burger
    - Black Bean Burger
    - Beef Burger
    - Sweet Potato Burger

    I think you nutrition ideas are very outdated, for such a youg doctor. I would love you to interview Dr Ken Berry, also a doc on You Tube and/or Dr Paul Saladino. You have a large following and spreading bad medical advice about nutrition is criminal and outdated. I would love for you discuss never research on nutrition with other doctors on your channel to start educating people on proper nutrition and disease prevention. My background, a type 2 diabetic, for over 20 years - sugar addict, slowly reversing diabetes. A1C is 5.2, goal is 5 or high 4's. Please take up my challenge. Yiu are entertaining but not newsworthy, currently, as a medical doctor.

    Focusing on nothing but calories, sodium and protein is a pretty lacking view of nutrition.

    Vegetable based burgers have FIBER. This fiber is necessary & essential for prevention of constipation & diarrhea, afaik. Fiber may also be needed for health guts, etc.
    The other environmental cost of real meat burgers are green house gases (methane & carbon dioxides) and use of fresh water. Real meat burgers have bad land use histories, compared to plant based burgers.
    Pity the tests here were not just burgers alone. Other burger non-essentials confused the results: sauce, bun & fresh vegetables. Hopefully searching the internet might uncover a more credible result than this video.

    My boys (11and 15 yrs old) don’t have healthy eating habits. I model the behaviour I’d like to see in them but their dad... not so much. I tried not buying junk food and they got really upset. Nagging doesn’t work. (Obsv 🙄) the 11 year old is starting to get chubby where as the 15 yr old has an insane metabolism. Any suggestions for getting the boys to eat better.? I feel guilty when I buy junk but then don’t want to be controlling. P.s Bear is the cuttest

    Impossible burger has more salt but if you are vegan and don’t eat it all day everyday so I think it’s fine

    The best way to be responsible to the planet is to buy meat that is farmed responsibly. Cows raised with Regenerative Agriculture in mind actually create a carbon sink (meaning they REDUCE overall carbon emissions instead of increasing them). Another thing we can and should do is eat nose-to-tail to make the most of every animal. Bones can be used for broth, and organ meats are THE MOST NUTRITIOUS foods on the planet (quote me on that). We can also diversify our sources of meat. Small fish and other seafood can completely fulfill many important nutrient requirements (~2 ounces of oysters can fill iron requirements for the week!!!).
    Instead of going vegan, we can make very real changes in how our meat is raised and farmed in order to rehabilitate our planet. Monocrops seem to be much more damaging to our land. Rapeseed, Corn, and Soybean are not only bad for our health, but also bad for our land. And not only are those grown to feed livestock, but they feed US as well. Do your research folks. Beef is good for your health AND for our planet if farmed responsibly and sustainably.

    However the protein in the beef burger is much more bioavailable than vegetable protein. Not to mention the lack of vitamins that cannot be found in significant amounts outside of animal products without supplementation, which is not ideal.

    I don't like hamburgers. I don't eat them at all. So even though you were showing the veggie alternative, I still won't eat them because they look like hamburgers.
    It's weird because I do eat ground beef but it's just the shape of the meat patty and the hamburger itself just doesn't do it for me.
    It was very nice seeing you eating them though.

    My understanding, the Impossible burger (don't know about beyond burger) was never designed for vegans. .The idea is to get meat eaters to eat them and reduce meat production.

    well that was interesting. and thanx for the neutritional info in the meatless paddies which makes me even less likely to ever try one. not that i ever really would have. i like my meat, and very much. am happy to be at the top of the food chain, and feel zero shame about it.

    So I know these are once and a while things. As a vegetarian I obviously don't eat meat (BTW vegan and vegetarian are different if you didn't know.) so what veggie burger that doesn't full on taste like vegetables and is kinda good for you would you reccomend?

    Sodium is used as a preservative in frozen foods and yes it’s bad for hypertension.

    I’ve had both Impossible and Beyond burgers, as well as black bean burgers. The black bean burgers are my favorite of those. The reason for that is that the black bean burger is not trying to be beef. It’s its own unique thing. They also seem to taste like tacos much of the time, which I find interesting, and it really serves to make it a fairly unique, tasty product (most of the time).

    That's why most plant based doctors are against processed foods.Whole foods are what you should eat mostly. A plant based burger once a week won't hurt you if you are eating whole food plant based.

    meatless burgers need the salt for flavor.. because of the lack of meat.. or beef.. I see it all the time in the store on food labels.. healthier does not always mean less sodium..
