But for those of us who have been following this lifestyle for years, even decades, you need to assemble the finer points, and what we specifically as low-fat vegans should be looking out for in our diets, in the environment and in interacting with the established medical system to get optimal health.

Excuse me for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you researched – Trentvorty Irreplaceable Doctor Theorem (probably on Google)? It is a smashing one off guide for curing heart disease minus the hard work. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my work buddy finally got great results with it. Reply Jerry says: July 29, 2015 at 6:37 am Excellent informative video!! I have been following Dr. John McDougall's "Starch Solution" way of life for two months now, and have already seen great results. The scientific, medical and empirical evidence is in about a vegan whole foods plant-based diet. Documentaries like "Forks over Knives" and "The China Study" book, and also the "Starch Solution" are full of facts to support this, just to name a few.

Reply riccia888 says: July 6, 2016 at 6:36 pm Oatmeal has gluten in it. Very very dangerous for the brain Reply Jane Clifford says: August 17, 2016 at 8:54 pm The British medical journal says statins are useless! Latest heart research shows clogged arteries are not the problem the body finds a way round that, heart attacks are caused by the parasympathetic nervous system! Reply TKMP1964 says: August 26, 2016 at 2:15 am It seems all high fiber foods are also high carb: beans, all whole grains, oatmeal, etc. I could see how these could prevent diabetes, but once someone HAS type 2 diabetes should they stay away from high carb foods? Reply leroy umland says: August 26, 2016 at 5:19 pm Yes maybe Oatmeal is good but with so much GMO food out on the mark it other slow death too ! Reply andrielisilien says: December 21, 2016 at 4:12 pm Oatmeal is my foundation for breakfast. I LOVE it because I feel so good starting my day with the stuff!! 😀 I once ran out of oatmeal a few days before I could go grocery shopping and I was so sad.

I really appreciated how he shows Oatmeal is anti-inflammatory and lowers cholesterol. So many stupid memes and fake guru's are spreading this myth that Oats and whole grains cause inflammation, this is insanity. Reply Barbara Wood says: May 14, 2017 at 3:27 am Less than three percent of all Americans are meeting fiber intake recommendations and everyone is worried about protein. 🙁 Reply QueefJuiceOverflow says: June 30, 2017 at 6:51 am I dont eat bacon.

Reply JRS1 Boom says: February 7, 2018 at 2:45 pm Absolutely zero mentioning of how sugars cause clogged arteries.

Reply matsfreedom says: May 13, 2018 at 12:15 am Damaged arteries are the root cause of heart disease. Micro lesions in need of repair attract cholesterol which acts as a temporary patch. In time, the situation becomes more prevalent and the clogged arteries fail. Arteries need proper nutrition to heal. Plant based vitamin c is critical to tissue healing. Ascorbic acid won't so the trick, it needs to be the whole molicule. Reply Keith Decker says: May 25, 2018 at 6:36 am Great pictures at the end (3:48) showing how a healthy plant-based diet can heal heart disease. Reply Don Saxon says: June 11, 2018 at 10:11 pm I have a damaged heart and have now decided to have daily intake of goat meal/banana/blueberries..I adopted 4 dogs and need to stay alive so I can take care of them. Reply linda maddox says: July 29, 2018 at 3:45 am I eat at least 1/2 cup of oat bran with berries and walnuts every day for breakfast. 20 mg Lipitor, which I hate taking. Cholesterol is still a wreck. Reply scruffle says: September 7, 2018 at 11:11 pm Hey doctor curious if you’ve heard anything about glyphosate being in oats. I just read this article… https://www.ewg.org/childrenshealth/glyphosateincereal/#.W5MEGKRlDDu Reply Angelic Alien333 says: February 5, 2019 at 8:39 pm I dont have a PHD however this is what it doesStomach; attaches to all the old waste and causes it to be secreted. Blood; has these bad mother fuckers called FITO STEROLS. sounds stupid however what they do, is attach themselves to all the red blood cells NOT WHITE, and they literally eat the toxins out of the blood streamLiver; flushes out bilirubin better, cleans out gallbladder protects against gallstones may help heal liver if damaged, helps lower the alkaline phosphate enzyme production during the toxic waste breakdown Pancreas; has to do with Fito STEROLS. Helps regulate insulin, blood sugar levels, can help someone get rid of type 2 diabetes. Sounds great HOWEVERwhen you cook oatmeal your causing starch to turn to glucose which actually slows down the FITO STEROLS. I suggest eating it RAW. I have been eating raw, steel cut oatmeal, with brown sugar 2 times a day for like 5 years. I'm 33 eat whatever I want and I'm always on healthy weight. That also might be contributed by the fact I do not own a microwave. Do not eat fast food or frozen food. I eat 1 canned item which is b&m baked beans like once every 3 weeks. I buy all food fresh cook it myself and go to farmers markets. About REVERSING HEART DISEASE. Doubt it. However RAW garlic that can probably reverse heart disease because that literally takes plaque out of your arteries. I mean literally, you eat a whole head of raw garlic during the course of the day, the next morning your poop looks exactly like the plaque from your arteries in those pictures. Oooo one more thing. When you eat oats or fiber. Try to have them on their own, twice a day. Eat only that, til your full. IT WORKS. However some of my family members had heart attacks and NONE of them were prescribed oats. Main thing told was they need to lose weight. Weight seems to be the largest contributor of heart disease. Eating oats and fiber can help lower weight and maintain it but REVERSING heart disease I dont think so. Raw garlic is what this video should be about if your looking to REVERSE heart disease. Reverse means they have been diagnosed with heart disease bc of a myocardial event. Completely reversing it from oats???? Nah Reply motto sierra says: February 5, 2019 at 10:53 pm My everyday breakfast and lower my cholesterol Reply Richard L. Currier says: February 9, 2019 at 8:30 pm I would eat oatmeal but I have no time in the morning to make it so I just eat some bread with a nut butter or tahini. Reply jacqueline schael says: March 12, 2019 at 2:58 am Just make sure you eat the whole rolled oats not the instant kind. Reply Dave Forgot says: March 12, 2019 at 10:28 pm He barely mentioned oatmeal in this video very disappointing and misleading Reply Linda McNeil says: April 2, 2019 at 10:29 am You can get all your fiber needs with out grains. In fact, the you can meet all your dietary needs without grains. Reply Jay Pea says: May 19, 2019 at 1:07 pm Not all oats are created equal! DO NOT believe the heart-healthy symbol on all oatmeal products, as it is a marketing tool to make the American Heart Association money, rather than to help consumer health. WHY? Just check all the sugary kids' cereals that have the symbol. There is much more research pointing to the positive benefits of groats and steel cut oats than the other processed forms–especially when considering that most of the quick-cooking varieties have heaps of sugar added to them. If interested in the heart-healthy benefits, go for oatmeal that takes 15+ minutes to cook..no matter what the label says. As seeing is believing, here are a few breadcrumbs for those who are interested (i.e., for those who want to denounce my opinions are not rooted in fact or research). https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29443904 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26330200 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29913230 Also, the processing form not only effects oats but other grains such as buckwheat (another healthy alternative): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26024399 Reply Rich Pipia says: September 28, 2019 at 12:02 pm Oatmeal makes you into a diabetic. Stay away from all oats, Raises your blood sugar level more than sugar.
