  1. I tried this diet for 6 months and although I took my b12 I felt like
    something was missing, and my joint pain was not improving, also I suffered
    a shoulder injury that just wouldn’t heal. I learned about Glycine and
    started making/eating gelatin dishes daily, my shoulder began to heal
    rapidly, the noise in my knees went away and most days my elbows don’t
    hurt. I also started eating other animal products in moderation. I’ve been
    studying nutrition for 40 years now and read almost everything I could
    find, One thing that has bothered me about This Low Fat Vegan Diet is that
    the diet of the indigenous peoples it is supposedly based on the people
    that live to 100 in perfect health, most of them are not Vegan they eat
    Frogs, and Pork, and Eggs, and Fish, but what I have also noticed is they
    all eat very high fiber diets with lots of greens, and they use all of the
    animal meaning they get the Glycine and Proline and other nutrients found
    in connective tissues and bones. So at this point I’m still very vegan
    friendly but omnivorous myself in moderation.

      Same here. I do think that all these high fat diets are off or even
      moderate fat because I ask myself when do humans in nature ever eat high
      amounts of fat. Even if they eat meat and fis, wild game and wild fish
      don’t have much fat. Even sardines only have like 5%.
      I find it over the top to eat NO fat including nut, seeds and avocados. It
      seems over the top. I feel if you eat mostly plant food with small amounts
      of animal protein and small amounts of fat, you can’t go wrong.

    2. Most traditional populations did NOT eat a lot of animal products… You
      are just factually wrong. They do eat some yes, but it is usually very rare
      (unless you live in an extreme environment like Eskimos or Masai).

    3. you are absolutely correct, they did not eat much meat at all. And that’s
      exactly what I’m doing eating meat only occasionally, once or twice a week,
      and in smaller portions than I use to. Like they did. But unlike them I’m
      not yet eating insects.

    4. +El Jay I agree, I think in some cases, where a person has eaten a very
      rich diet for decades and built up a lot of plaque in their arteries, then
      drastic measures are warranted, such as very low fat diet.

      For most people probably what you described is best, but just like some
      people shouldn’t drink any alcohol, for most people a glass or two of wine
      daily is a good thing.

      I just have come to view fanaticism, in almost any context, as an
      undesirable approach, because it closes one off to receiving new
      information. It’s radical by definition, and quite often hostile.

    1. Heart failure also known as is congestive heart failing. Heart failure
      becomes more prevalent with advancing age. My sister has heart problem and
      I was struggling to find the solution and found that site
      http://www.doctorbing.com. It solved my problem. Thank you for this nice
      video!!!

  2. Wow, what a treasure! This experienced physician and surgeon uses plain
    language and common sense to explain the diet/cardiovascular disease
    connection. Now, it’s up to us to change our diet and lifestyle if we want
    to avoid or defer disease and disability. Thanks!
