  • Dr. Greger, do you know that you are hurting the pharmaceutical industries? How can you sleep at night? Not to mention you are also hurting the meat, dairy, and egg industries, too! How can you live with yourself?

  • can you please make a video on consuming different types of fats.? I have watched your videos on negative effects of fats for type 2 diabetes but can you clarify if that includes avocados nuts and seeds olive oil. And what about almond milk?

  • Thank you so very much for doing this subject! I have been looking at the starch solution lifestyle and this vid convinced me that whole food, plant based is absolutely the way to live. Please keep doing your videos. You have so much good information the whole world needs to see!

  • I'm 52 years old and Vegan for past three years.  Prior to my Vegan years, I was obese, 5 pills and diabetic A1C of 6.4 (plus all the other standard Western diet illnesses) and my doctor continually talked at me with the tone "your diabetes" and how it WILL progress, "But, we can slow it down with pills"   After he suggested more pills, I thought I'm not getting any better or thinner, five pills were enough. I found on YT the answers I so desperately needed.  Long story short, I became Vegan, lost 45lbs (more to lose) and got rid of diabetes and now I take NO PILLS.  I also FIRED my pill pushing doctor.   Thinking back, on one doctor visit before I was vegan, he told me, "most people won't make the changes necessary to help themselves fight diabetes".  I asked what are those changes. He said something to the affect "eating right and exercise".  I have a culinary back ground and I never ate processed foods… I thought I was eating right.  He never told me to NOT eat meat proteins.  After I went Vegan and were off all my pills and my blood tests were excellent (A1C 5.4),  I asked my doctor, "Don't you ever feel like grabbing your patients and shaking them while saying, 'Stop eating meat and eat vegetables and you will be healthy?'  He said. and I asked him to repeat his answer which he did, he said, "Then nobody would come to see us".  These doctors know very well what "Managed Care" means.  It means they care to take your money while you suffer and spread you're wealth on to them.  It is a horrible industry that has been created where doctors, real doctors, that are saving lives are being put out of business by thugs in our government and big pharma.

  • This is fucking bull shit. I did 2 years of plant based whole food diet. My diabetes got worse. My HDL never went up to 40, my TG was always high around 150. Vegan doctors ruined my health. Then I took ketogenic advice, now my fat intake is around 50%, I am off the diabetes pills, my HDL is over 80, my TG is below 80. Vegan diet does not work for everyone and actually hurt diabetes patients like me. Fuck you Greg

  • Anyone heard of Gary Yourofsky? If your already vegan you might have seen his videos, if not then you got to listen to this guy speak!! He has got to be the worlds most respected vegan on the planet, he travels the U.S doing thousands of lectures each year, he turns people vegan within an hour. You MUST watch his speech titled > The Most Important Speech You Will Ever Hear. and also his The Excuses Speech. both my favourites, theres really nobody else out there that can explain it aswell as this guy, enjoy

  • These videos are spot on. It's a shame that people are leaving comments insulting you and your scientific evidence, almost as if they're personally offended by logic and reason. I guess these people want to hear good things about their bad habits. Keep doing what you're doing.

  • i just want to take a second to thank you, dr. greger, and everyone else who works to provide these videos on youtube. they supply a wealth of credible information and i'm so thankful they exist!

  • What is considered to be a well though out balanced plant based diet/program? In other words is there a plan which ensures you get everything the body needs on a vegan diet?

  • There are a few suggestions to try
    have one dish a day containing bitter melon
    fresh mango leaves tea
    consume bitter gourd daily this has an insulin type chemical
    (I discovered these and why they work on ralfs remedy method website )

  • My mental health improved 10 fold when switching to plant based! My husband says I'm so much more fun to be around and that makes me so happy! Thank you for this great informational channel.

  • Hi Dr.Gregor. Can you please respond to this video?
    Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines | Sarah Hallberg. She says you can reverse diebetes by being on High fat 0 carb diet.

  • Dude my uncle is sick as hell. He's possibly dying. He has been a diabetic since his 20s, he's 66 now. He's visiting us from New York just to give him a change bcuz he's in terrible shape. I was so fuckin shocked to see the recommended diabetic diet given to him by his doctor. Cookies! Margarine every meal! It's almost like a fuckin spoof but he doesn't know better. He trusts his docs and they're killing him. I'm gonna do my best to get him eating plant based while he's with me but it's unbelievable seeing the recommendations. I hope it's not too late for him.

  • Prior to my diagnosis of diabetes 7.5 years ago, I had eaten a vegetarian diet for 43+ years, then came the seven years of hell.

    I did lose weight (80 lbs) on the 'diabetic diet,' and my A1c was +/- 5.2 just using diet and exercise, and I kept that weight off for over two years. THEN, for no discernable reason, and no change in my diet, the weight started to slowly come back… and then some.

    I tried everything I could think of and/or read about to no avail.

    Six weeks ago I began eating a whole food plant-based diet and I practised intermittent fasting (16 – 8 at the moment).

    I love the diet, love the food, and generally feel terrific – and I've lost 17 lbs, but my blood glucose has risen alarmingly and, unless I literally starve myself (which my heart doesn't take kindly to), it hovers around 8 – 12, and at one point it rose to 23 – no clue why.

    I don't take Metformin anymore, nor Losec (for GERD), and I've reduced the beta blocker I was on (for A-fib) by 75% (I'm presently taking 25 mg Metoprolol daily), and when I originally began taking it, circa threei years ago, it doubled my blood glucose overnight, and I was taking twice as much as I am now, and I NEVER had a reading of 23! 😱

    I keep reading about how everyone's BG has normalized on this 'diet' while mine is in the stratosphere. Help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jesse. 🌹
