  • Hi morning. My name is Debra I was diagnosed on May 21st 2020 with a heart attack. The doctors took a CT Brain and saw I had a small stroke without I knowing so time pass. They want me to take warfarin pills but I find it has to much risk. Can I follow a food menu and get the same result. Can you sent me a diet plan thank you.

  • I see that you show the formed little carrots in a salad and understand from other healthy food choice discussions that these are mechanically formed and dipped in a chlorine type solution to keep off bacteria until eaten and that is why if not eaten right away turn white on the outside. Is this true and if so is this a good thing to show on the site?

  • Great talk for the most part, but missing a comment on the Coconut fat yes, its saturated, but it is an MCT and hence not metabolized the same as long-chain fatty acids.

  • It’s so difficult to listen to a robotic reading of text versus just talking about it. Especially when its just from the left or from the right speaker. But thank you for the information.
    Seriously, by the end of the video i was upset with the sleepy music and monotone reading of text. PLEASE make your videos easier to listen to! You know the advice you need to give, just TALK IT OUT, instead of writing it down and droning it out, I implore you. You will reach many more people that way.

  • Sounds like a sub rosa vegan propagandist! “Spirits” milquetoast term and unscientific!

    There is absolutely no need for carbohydrates in the human diet! This includes fiber too.

    No grains, no potatoes, no fruits and no added sugars works for me!

    Meats heal!

    “The low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet… may well have played an unintended role in the current epidemics of obesity, lipid abnormalities, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndromes. This diet can no longer be defended by appeal to the authority of prestigious medical organizations.”

  • Playback speed 1.25x & thank me later. Decent talk. But going plant based is the best, sure fire way to plummet CVD risk, and reverse it too. Kk

  • My problem is I am a meat and potatoes guy and it’s just so hard to get the same full feeling on this diet. I never had a problem with weight but my cholesterol is through the roof. I would eat 9 meals a day if I could

  • I’m not overweight but I know I’m unhealthy. I’m very fussy when it comes to food, I love foods high in sugar and salt, I can only eat salads if they have a nice tasting dressing on top, I really need to change my ways now, I’m physically active so I just need to give up the sweets and crisps (potato chips, I’m British) and then I’m good to go.

  • My wife and I are both overweight, I have high blood pressure, and she has the beginnings of CHF. A few years ago I would have scoffed at watching a video like this… but here I am… and I’m not laughing anymore. Thank you for your effort in educating boneheads like me.

  • Fish oil is rancid read the book from Dr Clement so colled ” Killer fish” and you will se there i
    s no such thing as healthy fish, is loaded with heavy metals

  • You say dietary cholesterol has very little to do with blood cholesterol cos the liver makes most of it. Then you go right back and say we should cut out most fats from our diet. ����‍♂️ make up your mind. Animal fat is not the problem. Processed food is! And canola oil is very unhealthy. And you are aware that low fat products usually have high sugar right???

  • UC is waisting our tax payer dollars. Evidence shows a whole foods, plant based diet eliminates these problems. Why waste a bunch of resources tiptoeing around the issue. Eliminate meat, dairy and especially eggs from our diets. As she mentions the drugs are not effective especially when considering the side effects. UC needs a dept dedicated to fighting these industries and promoting a healthy diet for all of us and really we all eat can eat the same thing.

  • I am always disappointed in these so called healthy heart videos. In order to eat healthy for your heart one needs to remember this: no oil (including margarine of any sort), no salt and no dairy! When cooking, instead of using oil use vegetable broth.

  • Good lecture. Question about the egg debateare the negative results using organic, grass fed free range eggs, or factory farmed eggs? That will make a difference! As far as coconut oil, are we talking extra virgin unrefined coconut oil and who funded the study? These will make a difference!

  • Hi, happy to share this good news on how I was cured from Genital Herpes after using the herbal medicine I purchase online for one month. I am happy today because God has turned my tears to tears of joy and happiness. And I thank him for using the Dr Agbonifo to cure me totally from this deadly virus. Doctor Contact email is Dragbonifo @ outlook. com contact doctor and get cured totally now because only him can help you out because am a living witness,his WhatsApp +234 903 474 9874.He’s waiting to help you.

  • yoghurt that is vey low fat or fat free can be misleading, as they add more sugar to give the product flavor since they fat that provided flavor is now gone.

  • Does Custokebon Secrets (search on google) help me lost a lot of weight? I notice lots of people keep on talking about this popular lose weight methods.

  • Thank you for such an informative video. I have just had angioplasty 14 days back. Am really taking care of my diet now. Can i have a couple of alcoholic drink sometimes?

  • I eat 3 eggs per day and I fast 23 hours a day. How am I suppose to eat only 3 eggs a week, too little. Eggs got bad rep but they are super food

  • When you say Diabetes do you mean Type One Diabetes or Type Two Diabetes? It would be helpful if you could be clear about the difference. It’s difficult to take your talk seriously when you are not able to make this distinction clear.

  • I lоvе thе I’m gоing tо givе thеsе рrоducts ааа сhаnсе tо wоrk thеir mаgiс оn mе. I’vе tried еverуthing оut thеrе аnd sо far nоthing hаs bееn gооd еnоugh tо hеlр me. Chесk оut it thеrе

  • I thought this was excellent. Avoiding processed foods, vegan or not, seems to be key. I guess some missed that you mentioned wild salmon which have less heavy metal contamination. Sardines are also supposed to be great for healthy omegas.

  • Just eat fruits vegetables and berries some lean meats. Its not what to add its what to take out. You ladys were great and thank you for caring. If people have to look up how to eat healthy there is no hope.

  • I had a full blown heart attack 3 weeks ago! No bull! It’s time to wake up. If not for quick intervention I would be long dead. A sobering thought.

  • Canola oil?!! Holy Dinah, most canola oil is genetically modified. Get with the program.
    All margarine, because of the way it’s ‘manufactured’, is BAD.

  • I appreciate this presentation on a great topic, clear and easy to follow.

    Noticed the table @ 53:14 lists amount of sugar in tsp for various foods but it looks like that should have been grams (divide all the numbers by approx. 4 to get the number of teaspoons). Also, Ms. Newman probably misspoke re: Heritage Flakes, the grams of sugar are as listed on her table, and my cereal box 4 grams of sugar per 3/4 cup serving.

    I think it will be helpful with new labeling to see the ADDED sugars in processed foods, especially dairy foods like yogurt so that the milk sugars can be distinguished from the added sugars.

  • So you avoid beef/some animal products or at least not mention them in the recommendation etc. because it has cholesterol/saturated fats and raises ones LDL-(small particle)….but you recommend fish that contains heavy metals and cholesterol/saturated fats……logic = not existent

    there are other sources for ALA /DHA etc. like they mention….so why recommend animal products

    also “gras finished” beef /animal products are not sustainable as the United Nations and many other institutes concluded
