How the Wellness Industry Preys on Women—and Why We Fall For It How the Wellness Industry Preys on Women—and Why We Fall For It “All you have to have is a shortage of self-esteem and, voilà, we have a product for you,” says Jane Marie, host of the popular podcast “The Dream,” in an exclusive interview with HealthyWomen. The wellness industry is the diet industry, and the diet industry is a function of the patriarchal beauty standard under which women either punish themselves to become smaller or are punished for. All good wellness trends come from the Far East.

We’ve had Ikigai, Feng Shui, Wabi-Sabi and a whole load of other unpronounceable philosophies that have had a positive impact on us. And 2020 is no different, as we see the emergence of the 5000 year. The global wellness market is estimated to reach $4.75 trillion in 2019. In the UK, the health and wellness industry is worth €24.1 billion (as of 2019) and predicted to be €25.6 billion in 2020. The health and wellness industry growth rate is 6.4% (based on 2015-2017 data) and is expected to continue at this pace.

The wellness industry is just the same – fake science, and we are being swindled by it. Lisa Schwartz, a doctor at Dartmouth College who died in 2018, was a. The health and wellness industry in retail sales for nutrition, food, and beverages have hit over $200 billion in industry worth. The global wellness industry is a $3.7 trillion market. The following statistics is a break down of the overall impact of the health and wellness industry.

Health and Wellness Market Segments. The wellness industry represents 5.3 percent of global economic output. Among the 10 wellness markets analyzed, revenue growth leaders from 2015–2017 (per annum) were the spa industry (9.8 percent), wellness tourism (6.5 percent) and wellness real estate (6.4 percent). Key sectors include: Personal Care, Beauty and Anti-Aging ($1,083 billion). Gyms used to be big box stores lots of equipment for cardio and weight training, with personal training available, racquetball maybe, and a pool.

And those are still around but this is an industry that has seen variety become the spice of life. Traditional exercises are being transformed into specialties and new programs are being developed at a breakneck pace. Corporate Wellness Coach / Trainer / Consultant. Corporate wellness is a booming niche market.

This is an especially good option for aspiring wellpreneurs who are transitioning from a corporate day-job into entrepreneurship.

  • Everytime I come and comment I don’t find my previous comments which means this song is still getting the recognition it deserves. The song is so good and the movie too.
    But let’s take an moment to appreciate how Kehlani, Margot Robbie and Will Smith are so talented ��������������

  • i just wanted to say thank you for this song because of this Yena, Yujin and Chaeyeon performed this and i almost died but that’s okay

  • MY SILLY DREAM��TO BE A GANGSTERS, ASSASSIN, A SECRET ONE…..WHO KNOWS HOW TO SING,DANCE, SPORTS EVERYTHING,N IF POSSIBLE WITH THE MOST POWERFUL N UNIQUE POWERS CAM FROM ANOTHER GALAXY ����

  • I disagree with you people. I heard lots of useful ideas that could help save one’s life. Yall looking for flaws? Yall will always find them, cause nothing is all inclusive nor one size fits all. Thanks man!

  • Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
    Jesus. Alpha and Omega. Alway’s keeping it ��

  • This is what happens folks when people have absolutely no clue whatsoever and their basis is always on statistics and studies which are hogwash

  • what free meditation sources do you use (you mentioned this at the beginning of this video)?? I would love to try them!

    edit: I posted comment this before watching the video to the end lol. I am wondering which spotify/YouTube channels you would recommend specifically? the amount of options is quite overwhelming.

  • Wait, first you say lower refined carbs, then you tell people to eat bread? Your missing the boat there, big time. Bread is worse than beer (much).

  • I love my therapist and my meds have help me a lot..I can noticed my emotional state been bad when I don’t take it-unrelated I want to be a social worker-

  • So much <3 for this guy. In a sea of inauthentic, self-serving, and unethical practitioners, he rides a wave of truth and takes you with him for free ;)

  • Hiya! As both a meditation & yogasana teacher, I agree that the wellness industry is (by and large) exploitative. Let me not even get into all the sex scandals and unethical behaviour that many ‘gurus’ are accused and guilty of…

    What really bothers me though is this ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach that the wellness industry takes. Mindfulness is NOT the best practice for many people with mental health and/or trauma related problems. It can often lead them deeper into a depression and re-trigger trauma. In which case, simple breathing exercises would be more effective, but that’s a call for a qualified health care professional to advise on. Can an app do that?

    Moreover, I don’t get why people are paying that much for their meditation practices to begin with and on a recurring annual basis…? I understand that in the beginning, one would need to try out a range of different meditation technique methods (mindfulness, mantra, vayu, kriya, candle gazing etc) to see which one resonates/benefits them the most…But after a couple months, one should really be practicing on their own which is kinda the point actually.

    Genuine wellness businesses are only exploitative if their end goal ISN’T to empower you to be able to practice solo….And that goes for BOTH free & paid for resources.

    🙂

  • I like the Insight Timer app:) They have many free guided meditation, but I like their music only timer which I listen to when stretching

    I also like youtuber Simplehappyzen:) she has a meditation playlist:)

  • I would really love for you to talk about being an unsociable extrovert, I personally am going through a very long unsociable phase despite being an extrovert at my core

  • I subscript to Headspace and I’m considering cancel it. It’s too expensive and I should start meditate by myself but I love Andy’s voice(hate his character) and structure of the app.

    Ps. thank you for people like you that I start doubt how shady this business

  • Very good video, as usual. Yeah, just the capitalist nature of websites or apps for any niche group is fairly ridiculous; but what else can you expect at this point. I personally use podcast for my meditation, which are free. There are other methods that I use that are outside of just that. If I’m having a particularly rough episode, I will go out for a 5-10 mile walk depending on the severity. For smaller cases, I tend to just post a quote I have found encouraging onto my Instagram(which is the only reason why I have one), in hopes that it not only helps my mental state at the moment, but maybe someone else either at the time or in the future.

  • I am sooooo outraged by people making money off meditation any zen center will teach you for FREE going there to sit (zen mediation is called “sitting) is free retreats are relatively cheap and every zen center I know will discount or let you attend for free if you can’t afford it (Empty Gate Zen Center in Berkeley California retreats are $60 a day which includes 3 vegetarian meals and floor space to sleep and they will let you attend for free if you can’t afford it). Treeleaf Zendo is an online zen sangha with members all over the world, the teacher is american living in Japan, totally free they take no donations whatsoever (if you have extra money, the teacher says give it to someone who needs it), they have online sits, ceremonies, retreats, and is a very caring and involved community. PS why are you not a life coach? You are genuine, honest, kind, intelligent, insightful, encouraging and just an all-round fabulous person. (ok rant over)

  • slightly off topic but my new quote is “If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.” Greg McKeown (becoming an essentialist interview on youtube)

  • I LOVE your videos!Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
    I believe that like every other “industry”, the wellness industry is all about maximizing profit. It makes sense from a business perspective. We don’t live in an ideal world so people need to be a bit more suspicious of all the “experts’ motives”!
    Having said that, I feel that promoting wellness shouldn’t be an industry in the first place. I believe that it should be something taught at school. I find making profit exploiting someone’s weakness unethical. I feel that many of these companies are as unethical as a fortune teller that promises to tell someone what the future holds. They take a helpful tool and use it in a harmful way. Luckily enough, not everyone in this industry is like that!

  • I understand why the apps and courses cost money because there are production costs involved and the developers need to live, but honestly, you’d be much better off just borrowing like 3 books from the library, reading those, and you’ll know how to meditate and practice mindfulness. Putting a price tag on certain practices makes them seem out of reach for the people who might really benefit from them, but that’s just par for the course for the capitalist hellscape we live in.

  • You don’t need to spend any money at all in order to meditate. Also you don’t need to have a phone. It’s one of those things you don’t need any equipment in order to practise. I hear you and share some of your thoughts but meditation apps are a trend from the last couple of years. surely (and in my opinion, unfortunately) it will continue evolving and such, but i prefer to stay resistant to it, i believe loading us with tools to perform very basic human actions will only make us feel more useless over time in terms on what we believe we can achieve with our body, or without much capitalistic involvement.

  • good evening sir/mam This tutorial video has been really beneficial!!disease can be fatal if not treated well. Every ailment depends on the lifestyle of a person and everyone should follow a healthy lifestyle along with correct,medication. You can prefer planet Ayurveda for treatment in natural ways and manufacturing products with no side effects and better results and no side effects.

  • Love your content! I use the free version of the Calm app. I listen to free guided meditations from Tess Whitehurst on YouTube. Her stuff is a mix of new age and Paganism!

  • I recommend Micheal Sealey on youtube, especially for when going to sleep, his voice is really calming. He has lots of guided meditations and “sleep hypnosis” videos. They are really good if you are just getting into meditating.

  • Great video Cinzia!:)
    I have an old mp3 player with some guided meditations, I keep using it since 2007! not even thinking of paying a monthly fee

  • I am an ESL teacher/tutor, so I think about the language of things a lot. There is an activity I often do that I refer to as “flexibility training”, and that most people call “yoga”, which was originally a religious term for various spiritual practices. However, when I speak to my students about hobbies or exercise or whatever, we say “yoga” because a) it is easier, and b) it is the term that they already know. I guess my point is that is seems impossible to fight the tides of capitalism and culture around anything, wellness included. Anyway, I’ll never pay to meditate lol

  • I introduced myself to meditation through this course that you can audit for frer: https://es.coursera.org/learn/self-reflection-meditation It’s very easy to follow and the instructor is a former NASA engineer who keeps it away from religion and into a more human nature based approach. Very recommended!

  • Still reasonable advice overall. Eat less cake and soft drinks and more vegetables. Edit I note that many people who spend their lives indoors or have darker skins in northern climates may benefit immunologically from vitamin D as it is often low in these populations.

  • Hi! I believe that we live in a society with less “clean air “so that some clever men to being able to sell us “used oxygen masks”! If some one wants to live healthier, there are all of them free in internet!

  • I find the guided meditation on YouTube to be some of the most helpful stuff and definitely has made me want to try out apps like headspace. I’ll have to try some you mentioned here. Thank you for another great video

  • Great vid! As well as library books (thank you fellow GenX-er below), surely there are some cheap second hand books around and there are plenty of free YouTube videos to get started in mindfulness and meditation. I don’t know but there are probably free podcasts. Alternatively, just get some instructions from the internet and give it a go. I would hate to think anyone is put off trying because of the cost of a trendy app!!!

  • Thank you so much for having this interview with Zach, Monica. His story and experiences are quite impressive and as an oncology nurse, I have to give him props for going through research trials and being the “guinea pig” that so many other patients after him will benefit from. I will definitely buy some merch from AAMLM to help support him and his family!

  • I love your channel, you always seem to come up with videos of the topics I’ve been thinking about! I recently read “McMindfulness: How Mindfulness Became the New Capitalist Spirituality” by Ronald Purser, it’s really interesting (although you can probably gather the gist from the title). Part of his argument is that practising meditation without the ethical guidance of Buddhism (right speech, right action, right livelihood etc) makes it no better than a “concentration-improving mind hack”.

    It actually put me off meditation for a while, but now I’m back on it regularly. I use Insight too it’s a great app!

  • Wow! This was a very interesting video. I agreed with everything you said. O: I use Calm but me being the cheap b*tch that I am, I only use the free sessions that they offer. xD Shoot, I ain’t paying that much for something I can get for free on YouTube. xDDD

  • Well said. I live in San Francisco and the most common abuse of mindfulness is a rather sinister one. Many people in silicon valley are working an unhealthy amount of hours, and in order to maintain their productivity, they are being told by their corporate overlords that “all you need to do is meditate. It will clear your mind”. Of course, they don’t add the crucial foot note: “so you can work harder for me”. Unfortunately, these people are led to believe that they are the problem (as they aren’t able to clear their minds effectively), instead of recognizing and acting upon the reality that they are expected to work 14 hour work days that are unfeasible and will cause mental strain.

  • Glad you shared your thoughts on this. The wellness “industry” IS exploitative, but we have to be willing participants to become a paying customer. As you mention regarding meditation apps, there is no need to pay for them….ever, IMO. There is really not even a need for an app, as there are many ways to time and keep record of one’s sessions, if that’s important to the practitioner. Meditation isn’t a mysterious practice (although the Transcendental Meditation folks and others would like you to think so), and anyone can pick up styles/techniques from reading blogs on the internet or from a library book. I use the Insight Timer app myself, but if I didn’t have a smartphone or computer, I would still meditate as the habit benefits me.:-)

  • My personal favorite form of meditation was bike riding. To do it on a regular basis like I did (7 days a week, or about 350 miles/560 km a week)
    You have to learn breathing, balance, focus, ignoring your exterior stimulus like heat/cold/rain/pain etc.
    I was never happier than when I was riding what most people would consider a brutal amount of miles.
    My cost was the equipment ie the bike, helmet, shorts, etc (makes a huge difference because the seat of the shorts is padded.)
    I look at spin classes as a money grab on what is a great way to meditate.

  • This is garbage advice. My relatives and I have been following this for decades and gotten obese, uncontrollably hungry, and uncontrollably unable to stop eating. Many of my relatives got type 2 diabetes from following this advice. Going keto (20 or fewer grams of carbs per day) and fasting solved the problems.

  • Fantastic video! Just want to give my Gen-X perspective here: y’all could go to your local library and check out actual books on meditation. For free. No apps. There is a veritable wealth of information out there. Just a friendly reminder from a former library technician (me). I’ve read every single book Kabat-Zinn has written and his books have truly elevated my life. I do not practice meditation, but I do practice mindfulness and it definitely helps with PTSD. Also…seriously…Gwyneth Paltrow is beyond offensive and embarrassing. I don’t know what she thinks she is doing but I wish she would STOP.

  • The first thing that came to my mind was the overpriced MLM essential oil companies. And the sellers who advise people to forgo actual medical advice to use essential oils on themselves or their pets. It’s so predatory.

  • I started meditating when I was between 13 & 15 and angry at the world. It’s great & its free. A book from the library & some space to yourself is more than enough to start. Changed my life & helped me be happier with myself. Great vid topic.

  • Very interesting content as usual. I buy Headspace every year, Headspace is currently being offered for free to NHS staff, definitely at my trust but probably nationally.
    Thank you!

  • Hi! The waking up app is free if you email them and let them know the fee is an obstacle for you to use the app. They will give you a free year of the app no questions asked because they don’t want cost to get in the way of people trying meditation. I am unemployed and having access to this app has been so so helpful! I can’t recommend the waking up app enough! Also, some health insurances offer free subscriptions to meditation apps if you agree to do a survey evaluating how helpful it is.

  • Yes, I sadly think it is exploitative. You tube has fantastic guided meditations all for free assuming you have a device and the internet. But also my experience of some spiritual teachers and communities is that they set up levels of participation based on what you can afford to pay them so that you can benefit and have access to teachings accordingly. What this means is that spiritual communities are full of white, well off people who can afford the time and money to participate. Some bursaries exist but access is largely exclusive. There is beginning to be some discusssion about this problem such as among some people at the annual SAND ( science and nonduality) conference in California but discussions about money even here still feels taboo. Like so much this looks to be possibly changing because some people in these groups are looking around and only seeing other like themselves and finally talking about needing more diversity and access. Let’s hope that these discussions open up and make real change.

  • Total, total side note: Ohhh my goooodness I’ve never heard a white person being critical about white washing and my heart just LEAPED for joy in this moment. I’d just accepted that there’s no use having critical conversation on such topics surrounding well…race, white washing and the likes… because it always (often) turns defensive which is notttt the purpose of the conversation and I’ve lost hope for most part. I don’t know, it might seem irrelevant to you but you’ve made my day!

  • I use a free guided meditation channel. I had used apps at times. To me, there is a spectrum from free to pretty expensive. To some degree, it’s how much you’re using it and how much you’re willing to go on your own and learn without help. Like I learn to play guitar on my own, or I can have someone teach me for $$. Also some people are more likely to follow through on things if they pay for them.

  • It’s actually LOADS cheaper for me to get my Zoloft prescription every month than for me to pay for even ONE month of an app subscription or ONE session with a therapist. That’s just the truth of the situation and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

  • If you just need good custom soundscapes for meditation and not the “guided meditation” audiobook style things, I recommend mynoise.net, they (try to?) offset their entire carbon footprint and also the minimum donation to get the premium version of it is only 5usd.
    It’s also a neat resource if you need custom background noise for boardgames or similar things!
    Like playing post-apocalyptic or conspiracy games with the number radio station sounds combined with some kind of desert-y wind type thing.

  • I love your informational commentary! There’s definitely a point to be made for the obligation felt if you pay for an app. I tried headspace when it was free and didn’t get much use out of it, but if I had been paying for it I would have forced myself to make time to meditate more often. If that would have been good or bad for the practice is an unknown lol

  • I WROTE MY RELIGIONS ESSAY ON THIS LAST SEMESTER I LOVE THIS OMG it was fascinating, i talked about it from the perspective of people using religion, particularly Buddhism, to make money. it PISSED ME OFF I am a religious person and meditate through my faith (I’m Christian and believe that meditation was one of the original ways Jesus and people before Him prayed) but people TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS IMAGERY and know nothing about it or how they could be doing it wrong or in an offensive way. This isn’t my most well thought out response cause I’m so passionate about this, but I hope my point is made. I love this.

  • He was wrong on the artificial sweeners out look i know for a fact that if your on a low carb diet than you can loose weight. If you use sugar you will not drop any weight.whither or not they are good for you i dont have the info on that subject you can.always use stevia sweetner comes from plants.

  • Soy oil, corn oil and CANOLA oil???? to replace butter, lard and coconut oil??? daha. These people never learn. And all this from the University of California…… And they have the audacity to put Olive oil in the same category as Canola oil, that is really smart. And then, they get amazed on how Americans got so fat….ah, the wonderful world of experts that made Americans round and chubby, and the most unhealthy people on the planet. This really is a mixed bag as he is right with a few things, but the majority is just not up to date.

  • I literally looked up from my nighttime ablutions and became ‘white guy blinking meme’ dude, it’s the stupidest thing I’ve heard all day in a world of stupid things, dangerously so. How much matriculation must one undergo to get away with being paid to lie so bad, when some of us tell the truth for free? Eat the butter!

  • Listening to an American doctor about health is like listening to an American teacher about math. Our institutional professionals have failed us. So this Doc recommends drinking alcohol and corn oil for “health”. It should be called “things you can consume and barely not die”. Medical school costs over 100k, these shills have to make the money back somehow. Basically, this is a video of an intellectual slave. Go pick some corn slave.

  • The modern self-help books I’ve flipped through are basically revised and slightly updated versions of the same (often poorly written) books I sold when working for a now defunct book chain in the 90s. And those books were largely revised versions of what came before. It’s a weird cannibalistic cycle that largely depends on modern trends, buzzwords and now in the case of apps, technology. FWIW, Until your post I had no idea there were such apps….though I’m not surprised. Back to the chain I worked for, the self help section was always selling out. Which, given the average $15-20 price per book spoke volumes compared to the unsold thousands of marked down genre titles screaming for help from the discount bins. Desire fulfillment is a full time industry.

  • The minute he said “if you eat 500 more calories a day, you’re going to gain weight”, I knew he was basically full of crap, and an industry tool. I couldn’t even watch the video any further.

  • Coffee is overated. You could be drinking something that is beneficial for heart health like tea or hibiscus.
    I don’t like this talk because it doesn’t talk about this. It’s a daily calorie and nutrient bank, you want to invest into it, you can only drink a certain amount a day, drink the green tea the benefits will be tenfold

  • I need a gangsta
    To love me better

    Ride or die with me
    That’s just what gangsters do
    I’m fucked up, I’m black and blue
    I’m built for it, all the abuse
    I got secrets, that nobody, nobody knows

    Please take me to places, that nobody, nobody knows
    You got me hooked up on the feeling
    You got me hanging from the ceiling
    Got me up so high I’m barely breathing

  • This is a terrible diet I don’t believe it has any studies really back up what they’re talking about go keto or carnivore And throw away the medications I have watched literally hundreds if not thousands of nutritional videos on YouTube and other places and the current trend is that I see a lot of vegans switching to keto and carnivore don’t see anything the other way. Our ancestors eat meat if they have the choice any vegetable matter was eaten only as a subsistence food the evidence is very clear about that The guidelines for a diet like this come from seven Day Adventist it is done for many reasons but none of them are for nutritional needs. Backed by any science. Recommending that you don’t have your vitamin D checked and that a blood level of 20 ng/mL is great is the most ignorant stupid thing I have recently heard.

  • Fiber does not in anyway reduce colon cancer!!! No study has ever proved that in fact ton of people feel like utter shit when they increase their fiber! Fiber scrape your intensities!!! Please don’t listen to him especially when he says to switch from animal fats to corn/soy oil. This is Big Pharma trying to kill us slowly but surely!!!

  • In 2015 it was possible someone this poorly informed could speak this nonsense without peals of laughter. It’s amazing how citizen science is crushing the priesthood of nutrition science.

  • The medications causes high cholesterol antidepressants definitely do that. Just have your blood tested when taking and after you don’t. You will find it is the medications and food additives and pesticides causing all these problems. We are healthiest when our body is alkaline. Only when we become acidic by these toxins can a disease live period!! Wake up it’s so simple to figure out.

  • If anybodywonders why we have so many sick people, this guys one of the reasons, people should shut up Trying to talk about things out of books and statistics instead of out of real experience.. This is this is a guy that never had any Passion for knowing anything about health, he decided to take it on as a study With the Intent of lectures.. Some of the most pathetic outdated advice I’ve ever heard.

  • I know what you mean told my baby mama that once because she said I thought you were dead and I told her can’t kill me I’m a legend

  • I went on the carnivore diet about a year and a half ago. I don’t eat any plants… which means pretty much NO fiber. My digestion is the simplest and easiest it has ever been.

  • Very interesting. Something I would keep in mind with any meditation instruction is vetting your teacher. If you like the meditations, see what they say about themselves and what other people say about them. Reputable Buddhist teachers will be very explicit about who their teacher and what their lineage is. This is an important part of the tradition.

  • Typical 33 degree CON Troll Freakmason Satanic Agenda Criminal e LI tes Cult Clubs DeceitFull Sel ected Muppet ActWhore BullShit. These Agenda Criminals have also ruined the food chain. They Should All Be In Jail For Deliberate Satanic Agenda Crimes Against Man No Doubt About It.

  • I really liked the guy at first. But eventually I had to fast forward to find out when he was really trying to say. Yep, sure enough, total nonsense.

    So he never considered the possibility that salt was bad, not as and of itself, but because of the foods that we consume it in. He said 3 quarters of the salt in our diet comes from junk food.

    Our excess weight and lack of exercise is due to our plant based diet, the very diet that this guy is promoting. Excess weight and lack of exercise are symptoms, not a cause?

  • he is a government shill. His vitamin D information is so wrong as to keep you week an sick. The oil stuff is crazy, freakin canola oil?? WTF is wrong with this guy.

  • Where you always an atheist? I mean where you raised that way or was it a choice you made when you grew up? Could you maybe do a video on that, also talking about if you read any religous text that made you come to your decision. I know this is off the main topic of this video, I was just wondering.

  • It really is my mission to lower my bad cholesterol and also enhance the great ones. I achieved my mission because of this unique cholesterol guide “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it). I have employed it for couple weeks today and also my cholesterol level has increased. My strength is consistently improving and my positive mind is really much improved now..

  • This guy is so full of shit, very outdated in his recommendations taking people back to 70’s and 80’s. Don’t trust or lessen to info he provides as he is extremely dated. Other doctors that specialize in specific supplements tell you information that is much better and accurate.

  • coffee is a toxin plants link the coffee plant use caffeine to kill insects who eat their leaves. If something kills insect can kill you.
    I do not eat from chinese restaurants anymore since 2012. There are increasing too many chinese resturants willfully not appropriately washing hands and utensils, putting flies rodent drop droplets cockroaches in the food their serve their customers personally i have shut down 3 restaurants in the downtown area of Toronto Ontario Canada.

  • BKS Iyengar, creator of the style of yoga asanas that I practice, never took money for yoga or meditation classes. He supported his family as an accountant. His school only charged for lodging and teacher training but he never personally benefited financially.

  • Maybe he can listen to the science/research of the last decade by Fung, Lustig, Fettke, Feldman, Noakes, Taubes….too many to list all.

  • Pretty OLD INFO. I went on the KETO LIFESTYLE & lowered my cholesterol by 155 points and triglycerides by half. I drink WHOLE CREAM & use KERRYGOLD BUTTER. I eliminated GLUTEN and use BONE BROTH, lot’s of garlic, soups, cabbage��spinach, cheddar cheese, mushrooms, arugula, Pepper Pops ( hot peppers, cheese, wrapped in bacon ��), just to mention a few foods. Seafood, beef ��, chewable foods like 1oz walnuts, good quality foods, filtered water, and supplements. I lost 55lbs painlessly, lowered hunger. I have thyroid disease & periodontal disease. I listen to my body. So much more to add, but long lectures keep me sedentary. Gotta get moving!

  • As far as I can tell, Dr Baron has never done an ounce of original research. Whether you agree with him or not, I will stick with Dr Cordain, a REAL nutritional researcher and his 100s of peer reviewed original papers. Dr Cordain would shred this phoney.

  • To sum up: 1) Eat way less. 2) Your choice of foods when eating less: nothing that’s filling or appetizing. 3) There’s a study to refute every study that has ever been done.

  • I was with him till he said too much salt, for goodness sake salt or sodium is an electrolyte, the body can handle too much, but it can’t handle not enough, why do they give cattle, horses etc salt licks if its bad for them? I don’t believe what he is saying is correct, just my opinion…

  • This guy just said it’s a toss up between butter and margarine…. Yeah he does know what hes talking about organic butter is the only choice

  • i think the information is outdated. it is from 2015 and we live in 2020. year 2018 a new hype i of coconut oil was introduced.. so what is the truth now

  • Thanks so much, loved this video.
    And your constant mentions of Gwyneth Paltrow were brilliant ��
    Someone else has already mentioned it before, but I thought I’ll put it in this comment as well, in case people don’t scroll through every comment: 2 truly free meditation apps that don’t tease you with unavailable paid-for options, and give you insights into the science behind it, are Smiling Mind and UCLA Mindful. The latter also has guided meditations in Spanish.

  • Hi Anniinna.. please make a video on yoga for pregnant women..or share the exercises you followed during pregnancy..
    Hope you & your family are safe and doing well.. lots of love from Bangalore.. ��

  • So out dated it should be taken down. Prays to the energy balance low calorie whole grain god that has created our problem.

    Funny how he recognizes that even though you don’t get calories with diet sodas there is no benefit to artificial sweeteners but can’t connect to how meaningless calories are.

    No discussion of how hormones impact what you eat.

    Still demonizes saturated fat and red meats.

  • I’m so sorry that you are going through this! My dog has Addison’s Disease. I have a minuscule idea of what you are experiencing. Addisons is awful in its own right. I can’t imagine what you are going through. My heart breaks for you! You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Sending good thoughts, vibes and prayers for you!! I do not usually buy merch, but if it supports a hard working individual who is fighting for their life, I’m happy to make a purchase.

  • My lifestyle since 1986
    Same gym equipment for decades for opposing muscle groups for symmetry.
    As long as you do reps/sets in perfect form. Full range of motion

  • Great video Damian,do you supplement with b12?I got blood work do and I’m low on b12 my doctor told me to eat meat but I don’t want to go back to meat it’s a tough situation

  • Real talk. People fail to realize that consistency is what gives you the results. Keep it simple & just stay at it. You can sprinkle in all that glamorous stuff when you wanna break a platue or just switch it up for mental reasons. But the results are in the basics/consistency.
