  1. Could you please make more vidoes on mental illness and mental health? I am studying to become a mental health counselor and I find your videos extremely helpful and useful. Thanks for all the effort you put into educating the masses on the benefits of a vegan diet 🙂

  2. But…but… but, humans are omnivores. We have canine teeth. The cavemenz ate all meat all the time. Vegetarians and vegans are always sick…

    And a host of others excuses to keep eating meat.

  3. Hm, really not sure about this one. I don't think I've ever had issues with depression, but since going vegan I do generally feel angrier, and my tolerance for all sorts of bullshit has gone way down.

  4. Vegan diets sound to good to be true? It's just a matter of perspective; you can also say: Omnivorous diets are too bad to comprehend.

  5. Eating plant based made a huge difference to my sense of well being. I was depressed for years and now it's gone. Not to mention all the other health benefits. Now if I could just sleep I would be really happy:P

  6. Even if you don't love animals and you don't feel their suffering….Still, ….nothing is better then a whole food plant based diet for the environment, your health, sex-drive and sex performance (if  you are a guy) and longevity in general…..and the most energizing, funest, yummiest vegan diet for me that also makes me the happiest is the >> High carb Low fat vegan diet…

  7. This is great to hear. I've been a lifelong vegetarian and I've now been vegan for about 3 years. Really started focusing on more whole foods, raw foods, and a high carbohydrate low fat macronutrient ratio about a year ago. I then got depression towards the start of the year. With all the talk of the importance of omega 3 and fats in general for mental health I did start to wonder whether my dietary choices were not the best for me. I think after dropping out of uni and giving myself some time to rest and recover I'm feeling a little better… still not myself though, but perhaps it's just a bit of a quarter-life crisis.

  8. I think it'd be really interesting to see the effects of a proper plant based diet and addiction. I was bulimic for years until I found the high carb vegan life and now I don't even get urges. Everyone is sick of me saying a "Vegan diet cures all" but it truly changed and saved my life. (Bulimia is an addictive behaviour imo, but I'd be curious to see if it worked with drugs/alcohol for example)

  9. My trusted source has become a emperor with no clothes.hiding behind studies constructed for othere reasons, they make your conclusions moot . Your studies are not that smart

  10. but, carbs turn into glucose, so high carb is improving their depression, because their brain is craving the reward system of glucose sugar, and their body is burning carb for energy, which isnt ideal. Burning fat is ideal for energy and mind power.
    Where is the study of high fat, mid protein, low carb effect on mood? A vegan ketogenic intake seems ideal.

  11. I have been vegan for 8 years. I have never had more energy and I am never sick.I missed one day of work in 8 years.

  12. I suffered from depression for more than half my life.  Prior to changing my diet to vegetarian (and then vegan) just little over 2 mo. ago I still struggled with it on an on/off fashion, I more or less managed it with supplements, avoiding too much sugar and trying to get enough sleep, but once I made the change I haven't been depressed one single day, nor had any random anxiety feelings that would assault me "out of the blue".  When I think about all I suffered for so long it really makes me mad that I never heard that eating an exclusively plant-based diet could make me free.

  13. In one year vegan, I stopped my medication for ADHD ❤️ and I fell awesome!! Thank Michael, you're always amazing!

  14. what a pile of crap. if the low carb diet had just as many fruit and vegetables they would have got just as good results

  15. I have read where scientists do not "fully understand" the connection between vegetarianism and improved mood. The connection is surely an obvious one. The brain is an organ. Blood travels around the brain. Meat is packed with toxins which are carried in the bloodstream to the brain, disrupting normal brain function. A no-brainer….if you will.

  16. Bring forward 1 person that has cured depression with any form of diet. Just 1. Not a study, not a doctor, not a book, just 1 person.

  17. In the book, Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain, Dr. William J. Walsh refers to five biotypes of depression. Each has a specific nutritional need. Are you aware of this research? If so could you do a video regarding the five biotypes and each ones specific nutritional needs?

  18. You got to go with the Science… "Medical science is only in its infancy, yet it has shown
    that our natural food is that which grows out of the ground." ~‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Bahá'u'lláh and the New Era, Baha'i Faith
