  • Fan-frickn-tastic!! The “fad” is becoming mainstream fast now. These guidlines alone will help so many people IF they can give up dairy and meat, a big IF for folks like my Mom who has type 2 diabetes and is in her 90’s. Some people would rather shoot them selves up every day instead of changing their diets.

  • Type 1 Diabetic and whole food plant based for 4 years with astonishing improvements re 50% lower insulin needs, and typical improvements of weight loss into a normal range, normal cholesterol, no more pain from neuropathy, good energy levels = motivation to exercise, and more….. Vegan for life! Thanks to all the brave, pioneering, unapologetic plant based docs!!

  • Patients wanting not to reduce animal products is one thing, but the mental gymanstics I've seen prominent doctors go through to try to dismiss plant-based diet is incredible.

  • I get so many people ridiculing this to my face, it stopped being funny. Here's what I think: people are gonna listen to advice that conforms with their comfort zone, wherever that might be. If a person is currently addicted to cola and doughnuts, I can virtually guarantee that they will deny the applicability of the WFPBD in treating diabetes. People almost always do what they irrationally believe they must do, no matter what information they're given. People [edit: almost] always believe what they were programmed by mass media to believe.

  • Greger and your viewers, go look up raw for 30 days, that program with fasting (plant based vegan menu) was medically supervised, 100% success rate, it even cured a type one case. Then there is forks over knives a real cure for heart disease, then there is Clint Paddison , 100% success rate with RA and other auto immune. Raw for 30 days worked in 10 days really. These are far superior results. No Disrespect, but for a researcher, you sure are dragging your balls on the ground, go look up all the plant based menus that are medically supervised and proven to have a curative effect. MUCH room for improvement , dont just cite mainstream studies there is much more out there WORKING RIGHT NOW, your cook book (no disrespect) needs shit load more too to what can be done and is out there. Look up the docos i mentioned and people start there, promote them if you want better results. There are other curative programs that have medical records using plant based that the mainstream dont have in their studies – ALREADY THEY WORK BETTER. Type one diabetes, cured Raw for 30 days , medically supervised. Much more, auto immube , cancer , Gerson much much more.

  • Hasn't hit canadian colleges yet, i am being told to eat bone broth, connective tissue and liver from my nutrition teacher… and that plants aren't a complete protien and vegan and vegetarians are all nutrient deficient.

  • It looks like the PC’s are getting in this October. Their leader Scheer says they are bringing dairy back in to the Canadian food guide, especially milk. Scheer says chocolate milk save his kid’s life because he wouldn’t drink white milk and was at risk of bone disease from a dairy deficiency. He was at a dairy farmers convention at the time. It’s all about the money. Our new food guide is the only thing the Trudeau government got right!

  • I totally disagree with the conclusions here. Realty check to Vegans/Vegetarians. Homo Sapiens evolved eating animal products as the main source of our diet. Plants were a minor percentage of our food. There was little or no diabetes, cavities, heart disease, etc among these earlier populations. About 50 years ago a small cadre of people convinced us that meat 🥩 & the fat associated with eating animals was detrimental to our health. And look what has happened to us now! We are fatter, diabetes and it’s concomitant negative side affects are reaching epidemic proportions! Eating low carb or a Keto lifestyle seems to solve a lot of these issues!
    Let’s not keep our heads buried in the sand and look at facts!

  • What of those of us diagnosed as being Hypoglycemics? What research is there for us per healthy eating and/or reversing this metabolic disorder; etc.? It is hardly discussed, just DM I & II is.

  • I would like to see the terminology change to “whole plant diets” (WPD) rather than “vegan” or the lengthier “whole food, plant-based diet”.

    I feel like WPD is just more concise, while the vague “vegan” label does not relate to healthiness.

    I have seen a “whole food, plant-based” muffin recipe. Now…tell me…how could a muffin be a whole food? It could contain some whole foods (many very-unhealthy ones already do). But much of what goes into a muffin is not a whole food, even if everything is plant-based. In looking at the commentary, it is clear the author is confusing WFPB with “vegan”.

    I am very excited about WPD. Getting as much of my food into me, in the form of whole plant food, is a low-key daily goal. 😀

  • Seven months on a plant based diet eating tons of fruit and starches lowered my A1C from 6.3 to 5.7, ldl from 155 to 75 , BP from 138/80 to 116/60 . Stopped my pancreatic cancer from growing or spreading for the first time in six years. Reversed my ED and shortness of breath during exercise. Oh and I've lost 45 lbs ! Take that all you meat eaters…
