Esselstyn … Share Category: Videos Submitted by: healthylivingsolution 29 Comments Facebook Comments Tanner Rood So cholesterol is apparently the worst thing for you? Let me tell you, your 'puff the magic dragon' won't work without it! Testosterone and many other hormones are MADE FROM CHOLESTEROL. And eggs? They are shown in numerous studies to decrease bad blood cholesterol (LDL). I couldn't even finish this it's so inaccurate. A balanced diet that includes meat is incredibly healthy! Want to get more healthy? Lower sugar intake ;) Reply hoalinae Most vegans are extremely attractive… gosh. I need to go full vegan as i am currently consume cheese for sandwivh & salads Reply T J I'm always hungry on plant-based diets. Any tips? I do eat a lot. The issue now is I'm unemployed and looking for work, so I'm carefully when spending money on food.

I have been plant-based on and off for years – but it's listening to messages like this over and over that renews your mind to make the decision once and for all. #onrepeat Reply kamil amana Guys, I need some help here. Both Esselstyn's encourages to eat lots of Oats. Dr Esselstyn always says 'Don't eat anything which has more than 10% of calories from fat' – Oats has 7g fat (per 100g) x 9 calories/g = 63 calories , which is like 15% calories from fat (389 calories/100g ref http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/cereal-grains-and-pasta/5708/2 ), part of this is 1.3g of saturated fat. So how comes they are encouraging this? I eat minimal Oat due to high fat content/calories. Reply MrQuidestveritas utter bullshit Reply Ilieknoodles Ⓥ I agree with everything he said; I am a vegan myself. The only problem I have is when he said there are 51,000 mammals, does he mean different types of mammal species? If so there are about 5,416 different types of mammal species, not 51,000 like he stated. His point still stands true, though, I am just nit-picking. Reply Mo4Top I always thought animal protein was at least good because of having all needed amino acids. Compared to plant protein, where combining sources is somehow necessary. Still though, I've been living vegan for half a year now, starting where those firefighters did and it's the best thing I ever chose to do:) Reply The Whole Food Plant Based Cooking Show It is amazing to be involved in such a great movement! Plant Based eating is truly the best for having optimal health. My family has been plant based for two years now and we feel great! Reply I Guy Been a vegan for a year!! the only thing I regard is why oh why my parents WEREN'T A VEGAN? SO i could of been since birth. Reply OzSafe1 A plant base whole foods lifestyle is NOT vegan or vegetarian. Both these types of lifestyle allow for sugar and alcohol. Plant base is just as it sounds, eating only 100% plants. Unfortunately there are plenty of unhealthy vegans and vegetarians out there because of this. Reply elizabeth “livefree” barrett omg Rip..please come cook for me Reply Bryan St.Martin And my VA Dr is telling me to avoid these things. Reply Dylvente I will not eliminate all meat, fish, and dairy from my diet, but the foods and meals he shows look delicious and I would certainly enjoy them. Reply Tamas David Berki There is much more to it than choosing better food. There is a bigger picture. Can you see how history is just happening all around us? Who or what do you think is really going to better our lives and save human life on earth? Superheroes or politicians? No. It's average guys, or smart firefighters, who are waking up to some basic facts. Yes, it looks like we need a hero slaying off the heads of the dragon. Its financial, political, industrial and anti-social knees are already shaking but the greedy beast is so huge and its teeth are still sharp and infectious… but don't fret. As it is drinking the blood of our lives, our energy, there is a way to starve it. We are talking about quality of life, healthy life, meaningful life, happiness, peace, freedom, power, and conscious decisions… right? Look how fast the world is changing! A few decades ago appeared something in the "western world" what most thought was some crazy hippie fad – meditation. No one really knew what it was. Today, as there is more stress to deal with, most doctors agree that meditation is medication. What's even more, some of those "hippies" chose a plant-based diet – to lead a more ethical life. Today plant-based eating for healthy living grows fast and strong. It's hard to tell whether top athletes embrace it more or those who survived heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and so on. Plant based eating for economic and environmental concerns is also emerging. More and more high-achievers are eating plant-based, organic, nutrient-rich, unprocessed, non-toxic, and violence-free food. It makes them more alert, focused, effective, and they can recover faster – keys to succeed in any field. Don't let yourself be fooled by marketing! Forget your prejudice and think clearly! Do your research, make the first step and change what's on your plate! Do not ask me why I choose vegan food, ask yourself why you don't! Plant-strong can be a good start. Then get out of the slaughter club. We can all benefit tremendously both on a personal and a global level. Then, when you have realized the benefits, let others know too! This firefighter is a hero because he stands up to educate his friends and his community. Just look around and look at your plate. You can also make the first step to save yourself from the dragon, better your life and help all! Reply Jim Juarez great tan! Reply emiiee cx I wanna try this for my health. Reply Jasmine Crane Watch Forks Over Knives to hear more about this lovely man and his father, who has help pioneer research involving plant-based diets over the standard American diet! Reply Christina Nickerson Rip, please update your information regarding how your body needs cholesterol and how high cholesterol in foods does not cause high cholesterol. Reply Christina Nickerson You guys!!!! This was made in 2012, so much has changed since then. Cholesterol doesn't make high cholesterol. A lot of what he is saying is still right on but do the research to date. Oil, fish, and eggs are A-Okay!! So no to dairy, sugar and anything processed. Reply Phillip Morrison wold rather die 20 years too young than give up good food Reply Aaron Brunner the main problem I can see for me with "plant strong" is I might become mentally unwell. Rip spends 18 minutes talking to himself, going in and out of third person and I said this I said that stories. I wouldn't want to stand next to him at a BBQ he's crazy. Reply Justin Brown Make sure you have a source of B12, I met too many other vegans who were mentally lacking because deficiency. Even worse, their kids really get set back. Nutritional yeast has it.
