Reply Char Tha Vegan says: December 23, 2019 at 9:05 am god I love these vids! ♥ Reply stuart bedford says: December 23, 2019 at 9:43 am Well done Bob, However being Vegan has a problem, they keep eating SUGAR and sugar is the addiction that people won't let go. Plant Based is the answer with NO SUGAR.I am 70 and had the worst year of my life with Bowel Cancer,, the removal of my large intestine, put on "Fentanyl" and suffered Paranoia, attempting to smash the hospital windows , I pulled all my tubes out as I thought they were trying to kill me. After this I had a Heart attack and three strokes so they gave me 3 weeks rest before they gave me a Quintuple Heart By Pass.Education and research saved my life. I now have so much energy the grandkids can't keep up with me. Please make sure you watch. " the game changers" it will change your life if your brave enough, and not believe the lies you have been taught. Reply Massimo Fazzolari says: December 23, 2019 at 11:36 am Don't blame meat for what overeating and bad lifestyle did. Reply Mike Masail says: December 23, 2019 at 11:38 am I wish people would stop using the term "VEGAN DIET". I despise the term "Vegan Diet". Veganism is a lifestyle not a diet. A so called vegan diet can consist of only French fries, Oreo cookies, Coke/Pepsi/Sprite, fried Onions, wonder Bread, Spread with "I cant believe it is not butter'", Gummy Bears (Vegan) and a whole host of Vegan processed Junk food. People eating like this are going to be unhealthy, and probably more unhealthy than those following a traditional western diet. As Michael Pollan said" Eat real food, mainly Plants and not too much. Follow a Low Fat Whole Food Plant Based diet, Limited oil, salt and sugar, no Processed foods and very limited animal products, good for you, good for the planet. Do as Jeff Novick says, dont eat C,R,A,P Calorie Rich And Processed foods. Combine This with what Michael Pollan says and you have a perfect recipe for a healthy diet. Reply Carolyn Brown says: December 23, 2019 at 1:04 pm WHY was this wonderful story followed by a Dr Gundry add? That does not compute. Reply Bar K says: December 23, 2019 at 2:26 pm Everything is gradual. Vegan… then cleaning your plate finding less toxic foods… then finding foods for your health needs… it is vital to remove sugars refined flours and oils…removing all processed foods…going organic…more fine tuning some say final level is all raw. Every move is beneficial you choose the speed. Go Vegan feel alive!👍 Compassion is the best flavor and healthy the best life! Blessings for the New Year!💫❣🎉 Reply sunny day says: December 23, 2019 at 2:28 pm If you are a vagan….amputate your head…😃😃😃🍗🍕🍝 Reply Jens Damm says: December 23, 2019 at 2:56 pm He was obese. Many non vegetarians are not obeses, and diabetes is linked to obesity. Going vegan may help to loose weight, is environmentally frirndly, but demonising non vegans is nonsense. People in the Mediterranean area have a healthy diet with some meat, fish and cheese Reply TATTOOEDWOMAN says: December 23, 2019 at 4:41 pm LOVE THIS ❤️!! Reply Mobstem Official says: December 23, 2019 at 5:02 pm Glad he found what works for him glad to see 😊. But being vegan isn't for everyone 😊but i think its a good diet to just wasn't sustainable for me. But its cool to look at different diest and see why they work 😊 Reply Justine Journeyer says: December 23, 2019 at 5:29 pm What replaces eggs?

Reply Weird Art Society says: December 24, 2019 at 12:19 am I’m quitting meat today Reply Ph says: December 24, 2019 at 2:24 am After reading the comments… Please, for both sides, go and educate yourselfs…Nutritionalfacts.org is an awesome resource…Cownspiracy is a great documentary about how what we eat destroy the world, the only point that is easy to debate in the documentary is about the rain forest being the lung of the world…Pure plant nation, showing miracles occurring during the 10 days program, new start…Game changers, about protein, aminoacids…What a healt for health… One point, veganism is not the cure, but gives the best opportunity to the body to heal itself.

Got it. Reply katerina k says: December 24, 2019 at 9:50 am I'm 25 and I have 3 chronic deseases, chronic irritatable bower syndrome, chronic knee pain, neurological issues at my 24 my hands were shaking uncontrollably for years… 5 months in vegan diet I don't have any of these anymore to whoever wants to doubt this diet it's your problem…. when u see so many people have huge results from it but u stubbornly want t keep your meat diet it's really your issue but I'm glad I got out of this when ironically 2 years ago I barely knew about veganism lol I once saw on mastershef they told them t make meat without using meat and I was so ignorant that I thought "lol they are messing with them" and from that by accident i became vegan and saw the results then searched about it and now I'm glad I did it.. Reply Johannes De Boeck says: December 24, 2019 at 1:20 pm The lesson is that you must choose between eating high carb or eating high fat.It is the combination of both that is unhealthy. Pasta with meat and cheese is not a sustainable combo. Reply peter simon says: December 24, 2019 at 3:42 pm Good for you Bob. GOD BLESS! Reply Danielle Moss-Lee says: December 24, 2019 at 5:41 pm I know that I need to go vegan. I'm putting it off, but the difference in my body when I don't eat meat for even a day or two is unbelievable. But it's hard. I love the smell and taste of meat. Reply rosekiller123 says: December 25, 2019 at 1:00 am I gotta go vegan once again. The why is not there for me though. Still amputation feels motivational to me right now yeeesh Reply Aidan C says: December 25, 2019 at 4:24 am The why is important Reply A Course in Miracles and Veganism says: December 25, 2019 at 6:31 am Bob, you look amazing! Reply fuckfannyfiddlefart says: December 25, 2019 at 12:02 pm It's sad that this guy murdered brown for oil money and animals for his toxic humanity and waste his life performing toxic masculinity and the ONLY THING HE LEARNS is vegan DIET to save his own skin. And people are supposed to learn from this guy who has done all the worst things, and never learned that the things he did are morally wrong. Reply Artjoms Pugacovs says: December 26, 2019 at 12:43 am Hard to believe.But me who's vegan 8+ years. Never had any health issues . Reply Edwin D says: December 26, 2019 at 5:10 am How do you know someone is vegan? EVERYONE talks about how you are vegan. That's how. I never bring it up. If it's ever brought up, it's never by me. Always someone asking me about how it's going or someone making fun of me. This comment is the first time I bring it up Reply Pradhyumna Gupta says: December 26, 2019 at 5:44 am I had developed severe acne on my scalp. It was so bad that I couldn't even put my head on the pillow to sleep. There were many days I cried myself to sleep cos it was that bad and painful. Ditched dairy first and then quit meat and became full vegan. Been almost 5 years and those damn acne have never returned. I'm so happy that I found veganism.

I’m so glad You are looking so great! Bravo! Reply Smokey Allan Ritter says: December 28, 2019 at 1:52 am So well said!!! REALLY EXCELLENT! Reply Joe Smith says: December 28, 2019 at 8:38 am I work at a homeless shelter and one of the friends of a host there has foot problems that could eventually require amputation. I got to talking about the food program 'whole food-plant based' and how the government can't be providing false information about meat and dairy being healthy and required, especially that glass of milk on the USDA recommended meal. Eating only a tiny amount of meat and dairy might be acceptable but people don't do that, including myself before the program. It takes great discipline initially and work to change the diet but it is very sustainable after done and completely satiating for almost everyone. I hope people get the will and discipline and make it the #1 priority and their life will be night and day. Mine was night and now is day after changing. Reply Neya says: December 28, 2019 at 11:21 am The music is too loud 🙁 Reply Peter Varg says: December 28, 2019 at 6:46 pm wow Reply John Smith says: December 30, 2019 at 5:05 pm Even as a vegan I'd have to say this is pretty misleading.Regardless of whether you're vegan or not, if you're morbidly obese like this guy was then you have a high chance of getting diabetes and subsequently losing limbs.However, it is much easier to maintain a healthy weight on a vegan diet. Reply Larry Bulthouse says: December 30, 2019 at 6:18 pm WASNT THE MEAT THAT CAUSED HIS PROBLEM WAS THE TONS OF PASTA OR SHOULD I SAY EXCESSIVE CARB INTAKE THAT TURNS TO GLUCOSE=SUGAR THATS WHERE HIS PROBLEM STEMMED FROMNATIVE AMERICANS LIVED HERE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS HEALTHY. THEY ATE MEAT MEAT MEAT. GET RID OF SUGAR Reply I do Plants says: January 7, 2020 at 11:07 pm The why is the true motivator. Unless you have that incentive you will never change!! Then you discover other reasons and that’s when you will never go back! Reply Shani says: January 12, 2020 at 1:34 am Wow. He appeared on the verge of tears telling his story.
