Lose Two Pounds in One Sitting: Taking the Mioscenic Route

Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at http://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free excerpt from his latest NYT Bestseller HOW NOT TO DIE. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking go to charity).

DESCRIPTION: Our physiology evolved for millions of years eating a plant-based diet. What would happen if researchers tried to recreate our ancestral diet in the lab?

How do we know our ancient ancestors were eating greater than 100g of fiber a day? We can examine their fossilized fecal matter. See my video Paleopoo: What We Can Learn from Fossilized Feces (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/paleopoo-what-we-can-learn-from-fossilized-feces/).

My other popular paleo videos include:
• The Problem with the Paleo Diet Argument (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-problem-with-the-paleo-diet-argument)
• Paleo Diets may Negate Benefits of Exercise (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/paleo-diets-may-negate-benefits-of-exercise)
• Low Carb Diets and Coronary Blood Flow (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/low-carb-diets-and-coronary-blood-flow)
• Paleolithic Lessons (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/paleolithic-lessons)
• Lead Contamination of Bone Broth (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/lead-contamination-of-bone-broth)

This is one of my favorite videos to date. When I recorded it, I gave myself goosebumps when I got to the line “Maybe it’s normal to be free of heart disease….”

    I look forward to each new video. Have recently started on a plant based diet and already seeing and feeling good results. can't hardly wait for my next Dr. checkup abd a look at the blood work changes. Thanks for all the work keeping us healthier and informed.

    Who can afford to eat 11 pounds of vegetables and nuts a day! How much time out of the day did they spend eating? If you break 11 pounds of food a day down even into 6 meals a day that is just slightly shy of 2 pounds of food 6 times a day! I could not shovel that much food down. I have a hard time eating 1 pound of food 3 times a day. Imagine the wear and tear on teeth and the muscle in the jaw. I have no problems with the diet's ingredients just the amounts. Plus nuts and seeds and expensive as can be it would be cheaper to take up a Porter House Steak diet or to buy pot than to buy that many seeds and nuts! Raw Almonds run $14.99 a pound. Finding Walnuts raw or otherwise in Michigan is mission impossible if you live outside of Detroit, Grand Rapids and maybe Lansing. I have relatives that live in California and California is not like the rest of the USA. I am trying to move to plant based diet or at the very least 70%-80% plant based. Variety and quality of produce is terrible where I live and completely unreliable.

    Thank you for these videos! Your breakdowns have perfect explanations, and I like how you connect the dots from start to finish of a point. People need to be more informed of the BPA, and other preventable things in the western diet! Great way to help make a change :)

    The study makes a point but nobody could realistically maintain that kind of diet/lifestyle for many reasons but primarily time and financial constraints would be the main ones. People have to work. We don't have 8+ hours of the day to feed on ridiculous amounts of rabbit food as leaf/fruit eating primates do. Btw, when you're talking about 20+ million years ago you're also talking about prosimians which were carnivorous or more precisely they were mainly insectivores but also consumed small animals. Today's examples include: lemurs, lorises, bushbabies, and tarsiers. Humans have evolved to live on soft cooked foods and our reduced gut size and dentition reflect this.

    so, would it be perfectly healthy to have about five or six rather mushy shits a day ? just wondering, cos doctors always tell you that more than two times is unhealthy and your shit has to be a perfect sausage.

    I think I in relation to this chanel fell victim to the known automatic unsubscribe bug, but I managed to notice so I resubbed. Huge fan of Dr. Greger and his work, thanks for sharing doc.

    I'm going to throw the towel into the ring and say that diverticulitis is not diet related.
    I don't doubt that it compounds a lot of health issues when combined with a traditional western diet, but the cause? I don't think so. I have had diverticulitis diagnosed when I was 13 and not due to problems, but because my mum was concerned that I was always so skinny. A barium meal X-ray showed DV but I have never had any symptoms whatsoever. I have a fibre rich diet with lots of greens and nuts and fruit and pretty much always have. Sure I have a bit of meat but it's maybe 20% at most.
    Open to discussions, let's get this out there. :-)

    I am from south america. I tried to eat meat free meals for a while, i
    could make  only 2 days without meat and feeling bad and sick, that was a
    torture. MEat is really the food my stomach likes and stays satisfied
    along with plants, but meat free dishes leave me sick very fast and very certanly.

     I think its all in the genes, some people are carnivorous in their DNA and cant be well on a
    plant only diet. Others might have genetics/DNA for herbivore and tolerate more meat free dishes. IS that right?

    Why meat free dishes make me so sick?
