Maybe people who are not diabetic can be vegan but us it is really dangers 😢

  3. Vegan diet is all about cooking, u did snack, processed food Vegan diet which obviously not healthy, I don't get it, you said something like Vegan diet can be healthy if done right and then you re doing it wrong, I'm confused asf :-/ I guess you eat only chocolate bars and KFC thought out the whole week on your Mediterranean diet 😀 sorry for being honest mate.

  4. I am plant based, lost 40 lbs, feel happier and since I really focus on my nutrition i dont have any deficiency symptoms. I used to have a lot consuming animal product and plants.

  5. Can someone explain the gas and bloating.
    I just started the vegan diet and have been on it for 2 weeks now. Been having aLOT of smelly farts. pls help

  6. you got money from the pork industry to talk about how meat shouldnt be taken seriously as a carcinogen lol. Dont get nutrition advice from doctors, nutritionists and dietitions are for that.

  8. Thank you for doing this but you were not open, you did not prep for this or a vegan doctor or an experienced YouTuber help you? We, vegans, get help from Vegan YouTubers and our research. You made fun of the entire experience. Welcome to our world in a world of meat eaters in finding "vegan" eating options. You did not get informed about cooking for yourself. Did you work with someone that is an experienced vegan to guide you? This was not a serious test. You laughed this off and you were biased. We do not eat Oreos all day just to say we are vegans. This what hurts the vegan community. I hope no one in your profession comes to your profession as you did with "going vegan for 30 days".

  9. Thank you SO MUCH for talking about the embarrassing gut issues! My girlfriend and I both have GI difficulties that make things like vegetables difficult to deal with, and it's really frustrating to hear people claiming that ANYONE can be healthier and feel better with Veganism. Sorry, but my body literally does not deal well with roughage!! Lettuce and Kale comes out of me looking basically the same as when it went in 😖

  10. You had gas because of higher fiber intake. This can easily last 1-3 months. Our bodies are designed for high fiber intake and will adapt over time.

  11. I've been vegan since 2006. It wasn't something I planned. It just happened one day that I couldn't eat animal anymore. In thee US, 99% of farms are factory farmed. Watch "Eating Animals" which takes a look at the small family farm versus factory farming. How anyone can think that the way animals are raised for production don't negatively affect the health of a person is shocking. I believe it should be factored into human health assessments.

    Veganism is simple. People complicate it.

    I personally don't buy processed foods. I never did I was raised on a European diet of vegetables, animal, and potatoes with salad as the dessert.
    I eat a large salad at every meal, have a little bit of grains, an adequate amount of protein (tofu, tempeh, or beans), and fruit. 3x per day
    This was not far removed from what I was eating before I became vegan. The only difference is that I eat a lot less grains and have changed the protein source.

  12. People tend to drop 10 lbs when they switch to a vegan diet. This is normal. If you are worried about the weight loss and specifically muscle loss, look to all the vegan professional athletes. There are many.

    I challenge you to another 30-day vegan diet where you are actually eating healthy vegan meals. There are tons of delicious meals – way more delicious than animal-based meals – that you can eat. So many cultures have delicious vegan meals: India, Mexico, Egypt, Japan, etc.

    I tend to not cook meals often anymore though because I find it much easier to plan meals by portion according to category: vegetables + greens, grains, protein, fruit. If I cook a meal, like a chili with beans, vegetable curries with tofu, I just count it as a vegetable and make sure I get a proper protein portion.

    In terms of flavour, I just add spices: fresh garlic, cumin, curry, fresh lemon or lime juice, Japanese soy sauce (Shoyu, which doesn't have sugar added to it like the Chinese one), rice wine vinegar, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, herbs, etc. I always add olive oil, Shoyu, and fresh lemon juice to greens.

    And you are incorrect about needing to take substitutes. All my blood profiles have been perfect. I do take B12. In Canada, we see dietitians (not nutritionists) who are are registered certified professionals.

  13. I’m not sure of the veracity of this fact, but I’ve heard that eating fermented foods on a vegan diet could help reduce bloating and gas. I’m currently trying it and I think it works.

  14. I've been vegan ever since before I was born (don't at me, you "eat" in your mom's baby bump), and I have to say, once the food tastes, and looks good, being vegan is surprisingly easy.

  15. Bebè, you can eat as much honey as you please. And you weird over paranoid vegans, leave him and me alone, ok. No one cares about your paranoid ideals.

  16. Why don't you try a ovolactovegetarian diet? It think more people are vegetarian than vegans. It would nice to compare with a vegan diet too.

  17. Being a vegan is great however you still have to be careful about eating processed foods. Even when it’s vegan. It’s OK every now and then but do it very sparingly

  18. 30 days is not long enough of a time frame to test out anything in my opinion. Minimum would be 90 days to be of any relevance.

  19. Ok. Mike. It is normal to be gassy at the beginning. The problem is not that you eat anything different really, but the amount you eat, mainly legumes. It goes away after a few weeks when your stomach is used to the thing that makes legumes gassy. Then after, you'll never get constipated! Or maybe it was all the processed food that you ate, because it seems like it's what you had mainly.

    On the honey side… well actually, the honey is stolen from them… they make enough for themselves, they don,t make extras for humans. I am really disapointed that you did not look and think at all upon this point.

  20. Your body isn't used to all of the extra fibre you are getting in your diet due to increased quantity of high fibre foods, which would definitely cause bloating etc.


  22. You ate so many packaged and heavily processed foods. No wonder many vegans are so unhealthy.

  23. Honey is considered vegan in India, where vegans are found everywhere

    the definition of vegan is so different in first world countries

  24. I challenge you to do a 30-day diet challenge that does not contain any single-use plastics – no plastic wrap, no plastic bags, and no plastic containers.

  25. I remember talking to a nutritionist at a hospital and mentioned that I may be interested in going vegan. She told me I would not get enough fat in my diet. Not b12, not even protein, FAT.

  26. When I went vegan, my stomach was upset for more than 6 months. But now I'm fine. My SO, when he made the switch, he had insane stomach and gut issues! And again, a couple months later, he was fine.

  27. Haha i was vegan for 10 years, ethical reasons. I annoyed so many people, strained my relationships, and made myself miserable. Its true, its better for the animals and the planet, but id rather just be flexible and do what i can when i can. Take it easy live freely 😊😊😊

  28. I got to admit that as a vegan the hardest obstacle I face is peer pressure. Having to choose restaurants base on my eating habits and me appearing as a picky eater is not the best part of this lifestyle. But I love veganism, and I dont think I could ever go back. Once you are used to this life style everything balances and is simpler. Also, I rarely get bloating or flatulences.

  29. re: eating honey and maintaining veganism —

    I think something about the vegan community that’s really great is that we’re all just doing our best, so while it can seem like a bunch of hateful people who are on the attack, at the core it’s really just people who want to do what’s right. If you’ve been vegan for years and you realize that the sugar you use is refined with bone char, all you can do is buy different sugar. You don’t lose your Vegan Street Cred for the last however long you’ve been vegan. Similarly, if you’ve been vegan for 2 weeks and you realize that honey is an animal product, all you can do is move forward and continue doing your best.
    The other thing is that you were drinking it for medicinal purposes. Many vegans take prescription medication that has been tested on animals or contains animal products. However, this can be likened to an oxygen mask in an airplane — you put on your own before you help someone else put on theirs. We serve others best when we’re the best versions of ourselves.
    Honey isn’t vegan, but being 100% vegan in today’s society is impossible unless you homestead. It’s all about doing your best.

  30. Didn’t eat enough calories, ate vegan processed foods….

    Blames vegan diet for getting a cold, gas and bloating

    Lol cmon mike a WELL planned WHOLE foods plant based diet is healthy. Say it with me WELL planned WHOLE foods🤦🏽‍♀️🤣

  31. I'm sorry but u r just whining. Vegan is not that hard. U did keto which is very likely to be nutrient deficient, but as a product of ur society u have been conditioned to like meat, u liked the diet. I do think u r exaggerating the "problems". Basically, I'm quite disappointed by this video and ur "artistic performance"

  32. „I didn’t force the bees to make the honey“ … moving forward, someone should always take away the food you just ordered or prepared for yourself, so you’re always left with an empty plate when you actually intended to eat. I mean, no one forced you to prepare or buy your own meal, right? 🤦🏽‍♂️

  33. It's nice seeing more and more people becoming vegan now cause of global warming and animal rights. A thing that actually annoys me is that quite a lot people doesn't know correctly how the meet is produced. They don't know how the slaughtering works and everything. People have to understand how it works.

  34. I love how uneducated you really are as a doctor I’m is causing you to have gas because you’re obviously in the wrong foods and you’re obviously eating more fiber than your body is used to

  35. Dr. Mike I love your channel! But please please please please give us dietitians (or in my case future dietitian) some credit. The problem with finding a "nutritionist" to help with dietary issues is that anyone can call themself one, even if they have no nutritional training. Your friendly local dietitian on the other hand has gone to a 4 year college for nutrition, food science or dietetics; completed a dietetic internship; and passed a national exam. These are the people, along with your doctor or primary care provider, that people should be going to for help. Thanks!

  36. Trying out a vegan diet for 30 days with "expectations" may not be the best way, especially if your mind is not that strong enough. Some will automatically fail. At least you stuck with 30 days. Since every body is different, sometimes the body takes longer than 30 days to improve. I struggled the first few months, mainly because I wasn't fully prepared. Going extremely strong not eating meat over five years now. In contrast, not everybody can go on a vegan diet due to certain food allergies. There is no best diet out there. It depends on an individual. If you bring in the environmental and ethical values, then the wisest choice is vegan. Of course, that's a different topic.

  37. I found the fact that you got GI issues when you switched to a vegan diet interesting. It's well known that sometimes people on a vegan or vegetarian diet will lose the ability to process animal based fats and protein and can end up with GI issues if they ever have a cheat day or eat a dish with meat by-product. This is actually one of the main reasons vegans are so concerned with contamination because even trace amounts of animal fat can cause physical issues for someone who has gone on a completely vegan diet.

  38. If you stick with a plant-based whole food diet you'll develop a healthy microbiome and you won't have gas and rumbling tummy. And yes eating plant-based Whole Foods is the healthiest. I understand you want to eat fish but they bioaccumulate environmental toxins, you can't escape the Mercury, bmaa, dioxins, and the fact that they don't have fiber or phytonutrients so you're crowding out more nutrient pack Foods, and they have oxidized dietary cholesterol, heme iron, saturated fat, and fish are being over fished so you're contributing to dead zones, if you get farm-raised fish they're going to have high omega-6 ratios so they're going to be inflammatory, just eat plant-based Whole Foods and you'll be fine, and to replace fish just eat nuts and chia seeds that are milled and flax for your essential fatty acids. Sure if you're eating predominantly plant-based you may be able to get away with eating animals and their secretions occasionally but why would you want to when you don't need to, the more you get away from it the more you realize it is disgusting, unnecessary, and moderation isn't good to your health either if you look at more seasoned doctors and scientists they will back to all of this up

  39. The "substantial" research studies that support the health benefits of veganism doesn't involve consuming high amounts of processed foods.

    I'd encourage you to take a challenge with mostly whole foods with very little to no processed foods in the mix. This is cheaper, healthier and a more responsible diet you could recommend to your patients.

  40. Fun fact: bees aren't harmed when you take their surplus honey, but they ARE harmed when you force them to pollinate almond farms!

  41. 1) try the vegan diet in conjunction with a proper nutritionist and do whole foods!
    2) please try the low FODMAP diet! It would be so cool to see.

  42. This guy tries the kill yourself diet or the keto diet with zero disclaimers then tries a vegan diet and gives us several warnings because you can't just eat oreos all day. lol

  43. The gas and bloating is normal at first. Your gut bacteria completely change so yeah, there are some growing pains. It goes away, ffs.

  44. The same about period of flatulence happened to me during the first weeks of veganism 😂😂, but it goes away. This happens because your stomach is getting acclimated to the new high fiber levels.

  45. If I wasn't a vegan I think I would try a Mediterranean pescatarian diet. I love being vegan though. I just lost 22 pounds doing keto vegan for 3 months. I have lost a total of 34 lbs. since July by going back to eating a vegan diet after 6 years of eating meat and diary. I will never go back to eating the standard American diet.

  46. i honestly think it's easier if you're vegan for ethical reasons (which is really the only way to go vegan, what he did was a plantbased diet, but yk) because then you dont want to eat that terrifying whole dead fish that woman had on her plate

  47. I have tried Vegan (the plant based whole foods version) several times because I want the health benefits and I have also suffered severe gas and bloating every time I try it. I also have a job where this is not acceptable. If someone can recommend a remedy for the gas I would be willing to try again. Thanks

    It took a year for my body to stop being loud AF after lunch. Going super slowly rather than all at once helps a lot!

  49. cinnamon toast crunch is not vegan since it contains CTC which contains vitamin D3 which is NOT VEGAN😂🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

  50. Holymoly….that intro showed pretty much everything wrong with "veganism"…actually quite a few of the things you highlight in the video as well: highly processed and meat analogue stuff.
