    The gas is due to fiber my dude, I had the same issue when I first went vegan. Most people are fiber deficient so when they add a lot of fiber to their diet it can cause some gas.

    uhhh this whole video was you complaining. literally didn't try or anything. not wanting to go to the gym has nothing to do with the diet you obviously didn't eat enough and you can ask restaurants to make you something and many many many restaurants have a separate vegan menu which sometimes includes a lot of items from the original menu just veganized same portion sizes, etc. Also, you obviously don't have enough fiber in your usual diet if you had that much flatulence

  12. MindWork

    MindWork54 minutes ago

    What you tried is a diet, a plant based diet which is not the same as being Vegan. Veganism are the ethics against animal abuse and there's no way you could care about animal suffering for just 30 days. Don't get me wrong. I'm saying this to stop a little bit with the confusion between being Vegan or just practicing a diet. 💚✌️ I'm glad you made this video with a neutral perspective because I saw other doctors trying a plant based diet. They did everything wrong from the start without asking someone specialized about plant based diet, buying expensive unnecessary stuff, not planning and eating terribly bad lacking nutrients.

    The decision fatigue gets a bit easier with time when you're not interested in picking animal products again in general. I've started massively reducing my animal product consumption and when I go to the supermarket or look for restaurants/cafes, I simply blend out anything that doesn't qualify as vegan or doesn't offer vegan options. So, the temptation is just a lot less in my head, because I simply do not consider most animal products as an option I'm interested in. As for your stomach problems, the most likely cause could be too much fiber. It's a pretty common issue for people who are unfamiliar with the vegan diet

    Very disappointing to see from a doctor. Apart from some stock photos of a salad, all you could see was processed foods. I guess this is just a Thrive commercial. BTW, most processed foods cause bloating. If you cook pulses or legumes properly, you shouldn't have any problems with flatulence etc.

  27. Firefly

    Bro. So much processed food. There are tons, and TONS of recipes online that give you the freedom to make your own much healthier, less processed foods from fresh ingredients. Even youtube channels that show you step by step on how to prepare incredibly healthy, and delicious meals. When I first went vegan in 2004, there were a lot less pre-made foods available for me so I learned to make a lot of my own stuff. One of my favorite recipes is fake-tuna fish sandwich which is made from garbanzo beans as a base and uses fresh red onions, celery, dill, salt, pepper, and vegan mayo. You can bake your own bread in a bread machine which simplifies things, and I believe even make your own mayo. I'm lazy about the mayo so I buy mine. Add some lettuce, and tomato slices to complete it. Maybe a bit of mustard depending on your preferences. Point is - there's a lot of really simple, and delicious recipes that don't come pre-packaged like all the ones you showed at the start of your video.

    Exactly how much meat and animal products do you eat that you had this hard of a time with not eating animals? Dude, this entire video is very sophomoric and condescending. You think your friends were annoyed at your dietary needs? Imagine hearing someone who tried it saying all the same tropes of how hard it is and whine about it being a restrictive diet when there are literally so many options and that carbs make you pudgy?!!? Get the fuck out of here, dude. You should have done better on this.

    The issue in life isn't on the people staying vegan. We need more options available in the world and not have everything full of animal products that don't need to be there.

    If you eat junk food as a vegan then you have nothing to blame but yourself. You could have made things like lentil chili and served it with sweet potatoes and a side salad, rice, potatoes, root tubers, veggies, fruits, salads, grains, nuts and seeds. You could have done more to prepare, gathered a list of batch recipes to make and looked up restaurants ahead of time. There's tons of plant based doctors out there with recipe books that are delicious like Dr. Greger, for a few dollars you could get a kindle version and read it without a kindle but using a website that's already on most newer computers. Yet you went mostly junk food and want to claim that's vegan. You also were in a LARGE city, I find it hard to believe you couldn't look up on google what vegan places there were and go eat that. Let's be honest you made it harder for yourself because you're biased.

    Interesting viewpoint from a trial vegan. I've been vegan for 2 years and have worked my way through my problems. Now it's habit. Very little planning except having the right food in the house. Was concerned about your box. It was all processed food. Over half of my grocery cart is fresh produce. I've found I have much more energy after switching. Thanks for doing the challenge. The more experience you have the better you can advise your patients. I agree with one of the comments below - 30 zero waste challenge. That's a lot harder.

    BTW, a lot of people think of veganism as a weight loss diet or a way to help the environment. These are great bonuses but the number one reason as to why veganism exists is for ethics and to decrease the absolutely horrific harm we cause to animals grown and raised for meat and other products.

    Does Thrive Market work the same way for allergies? My boyfriend has very severe allergies to eggs and tree nuts and I am allergic, although not as severely, to peanuts. Sometimes vegan stuff helps for avoiding eggs (I frequently make sandwiches with vegan mayonnaise) but it creates a lot of trouble because a good amount of protein in many vegan diets ends up coming from nuts, which creates more allergy issues. It’s also really difficult to find stuff that’s made I a completely allergy safe facility with eggs and nuts. We’re both still in high school. Eggs are really difficult to avoid, so when I’m not going to see him for 12 hours (we did a lot of research to get that number for the minimum amount of time I have to not eat something he’s allergic to before I can kiss him without risking a reaction), I still eat stuff with eggs because I live with my family and can’t always control what they buy. I want to be able to uphold this “diet” after I move out and when I go to college because I want to stay with my boyfriend and I really care about him. But this would be my first time trying to figure it all out on my own and shopping for food isn’t something I usually do a lot, so anything I could consider would help. Thanks!

    And one more point. Later in the video, you acted like it was "fun" being vegan like you were engaging in some kind of cultural food exchange or something. Vegan isn't a culture. You can still eat all the cultural foods of the world in a Vegan format with faux meats and recipes. Vegan is one thing and one thing only. An ethical stance to do the least harm to animals possible by making choices and engaging in buying products that don't directly harm animals and if possible, buy products that avoid indirectly harming animals. That is what being Vegan is. It's not a 'holiday experience' or something you do for 30-days. So, you actually didn't do Vegan correctly because if you did, you would still be Vegan. Vegans don't just suddenly start eating animal products again, or they were never Vegan in the first place. You either believe in harming animals for your food and other products or you believe in avoiding harming animals. For instance, if you are ethically adopting the stance of being Vegan, but you accidentally bought an animal product, you are still Vegan. No real Vegan will expect other Vegans to have God-like omniscience. The world is so full of animal products that you cannot be expected to be perfect. The whole point is that you do everything you can to avoid harming animals or contributing to the harming. And if you do that, in time, you will do a very good job of avoiding the harming of animals.

    First, if you are increasing your fiber too much, then try a combination of Beano (enzyme) and/or a pro-biotic for a short period until your gut adjusts. IMO, if you were consuming proper fiber-rich foods then you shouldn't have this problem. You obviously weren't eating what you claim you were before. Also, it could be your lack of fat in the vegan foods vs what you ate before. So, try adding fats? That would be my first guess if you actually have been eating high-fiber foods already.

    thank you for doing this challenge. you were learning and showing first hand the struggles of (new) vegans. i hope you have more understanding of their struggles and support them even more in their quest :) i think "regular" restaurants should offer more whole food vegan options, not just for the vegans (joining their non-vegan friends) but also for the many omnivores trying to eat less meat, the healthy way. pro tip for the future: buying one or two cook books with delicious, easy but still healthy recipes really helps in the beginning.

  107. Timothy S

    Timothy SDay ago

    For the record. I had no such problems because when I first started I ate exactly the same things but just substituted in faux meats. I already was eating plenty of beans and plants before going vegan, so by just subbing in faux products I had zero issues. I still use some faux meats occasionally. There is nothing wrong with eating the recipes you ate all your life with faux products.

    This video is such bunk. A vegan diet is not a 'miracle' diet, but is scientifically shown to have the lowest disease rates (ie, heart disease/diabetes) over a lifetime. There is NO other diet that shows this same outcome. The doctor in this video has to resort to telling you that to get the 'same' results as a vegan whole-foods diet while being an omnivore, you have to virtually eliminate animal products. That means the animal products ARE DISEASE-PROMOTING and should not be eaten in any amount. The doctor's advice is the equivalent of telling patients that smoking 1-cigarette a day shows to not kill you long-term vs not smoking. It's an absolute joke of statement and so is this doctor's recommendation to patients to still eat animal products. This video is clearly trying to be anti-vegan without trying to be 'overt' about it. Shame on this doctor for not talking about the animal suffering in corporate agriculture and not talking about the environmental impact of pollution that clearly affects health in different direct ways. Anyone who has ever lived within 20-30 miles of an animal agriculture farm can smell the animal waste that gets into rivers, streams and ground water. It emits air pollution that is dangerous to breathe (the people who work on those farms have to wear protective masks to filter out the concentration of ammonia in the air). The animals themselves live in conditions so unsanitary that they must be given antibiotics just to keep them from dying from infections. Which is creating antibiotic resistant bacteria which will harm humans. Animal agriculture isn't just bad for our dietary health, it's dangerous to our environmental health both in terms of pollution and in terms of infectious disease. Where is Doctor Mike's statement on that? Also, I'm vegan and I've traveled and I've never had a problem, especially in the last 5 years. Another complaint I have about this video is his silly non-planning of his food while traveling. Vegans always carry backup plans. You have no excuses. Another complaint I have about this video is Dr. Mike's seeming claim that getting sufficient calories is 'difficult'. That is bull-hockey. Sorry, but I'm vegan and I have to RESTRICT my intake on purpose to avoid becoming overweight. Fats and carbs are full of calories. Where were his potatoes? Where were his fats in his meals? A simple tablespoon of fat is 140 calories. If I want to add a zillion calories to my food it's as simple as adding healthy fat. A handful of cashews or walnuts are hundreds of calories. As everyone knows, you can eat a hell of a lot more than a handful of cashews or walnuts in a single sitting. Don't give me any garbage about how you "can't get enough calories". That's bull and you know it. Healthy calorie-dense vegan foods are all over the place. As I said before, I personally, have to RESTRICT my intake, ie, 'diet' my portions or I'll add on pounds. Even now I've had to restrict my calories to lose 10-15 pounds. And I eat the healthiest vegan foods compared to other vegans. If I find it hard to avoid gaining weight, how can this Doctor find it hard to eat sufficient calories? Wow. Dude. Go to the store and buy some trail mix. Instant 600 calories in a small couple of fistfuls and you won't even be full. It's possible for me to consume 1,000 calories of trail mix in a sitting, as it is for most anyone. Getting calories isn't hard. Heck, you can add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to your cooked veggies, beans and rice and instantly add 280 calories of healthy fat (or use any healthy oils you want). No one should have to teach an intelligent doctor who knows nutrition how to add 'easy' calories to a plant-based meal. It's simple and I believe this video was designed to be anti-vegan in a very stealthy way. The take-out order that he ate he made it sound like his meal wasn't good. BS. I have several vegan restaurants in Las Vegas where I live that I'd be happy to take any non-vegan to where they would have a stellar taste experience, even with faux-meats and cheeses. So, I'm disliking this video. It's not being fair or honest with the viewers. Here's an example of a healthy vegan day's worth of calorie counting based on a 2,000 calories diet. Morning: 20 min Workout burns no more than 350 calories max, so we start with negative 350 calories (and that's being generous on the burn). Daily metabolic resting rate calorie intake is 1,750 calories for a 175 pound, 6ft tall man (basically the average man, give or take a few inches in height and 10 pounds of weight, but this should be very sufficient for most men in the calculations.), so we will need 2,000 calories. Let's begin. Breakfast - Bowl of Quaker oats (1/2-cup, 150 calores) with blue berries, raspberries and a banana (180 calories) and 1-cup of Silk Protein Nut Milk (130 calories) 460 calories, meets many vitamin and antioxidant requirements just by itself, full of solid carbohydrates that will last many, many hours. 16 grams of protein ***And...if you are engaging in "athletic" programs you can blend a scoop of Vega-One protein (the one with veggies and fruits) for an additional 20 grams of protein and 170 more calories. Snack, if you want, add an orange or apple or both for 100-200 calories. Afternoon: Pack a nutbutter sandwich or you can have some left-overs from a previous dinner or you can make a salad or you can make a faux-meat bologna sandwich (Yves brand is my favorite faux bologna) and you can also bring a steamable pack of frozen veggies to work and steam that in the microwave. You can also pack wheat tortillas and low-fat refried beans for a bean burrito. Again, merely use a microwave. Pre-slice your tomatoes and onions or make your own salsa to go with it. You can also make some amazingly good guacamole at home super-cheap with avocados and pack that in a container for lunch. You have so many lunch possibilities that are full of calories and nutrition that I can't possibly cover it all. Lunch - 2 whole wheat tortillas with canned low-fat refried beans along with salsa and 1/3 cup of guacamole = 250 (guac) + 50 (salsa) + 180 (tortillas) + 200 (refried beans) = 680 calories and 20 grams of protein. You can add more guac or more beans to target calories to your preference. I'm just going to stop here, because it's obvious that at this point I've shown just the 1st two meals of the day come out to about 1,300 calories and also meets the daily requirement of nearly all vitamins, minerals, contains less than 4 grams of saturated fat (only due to the avocado, otherwise you have ZERO saturated fat) and meets the needs of your macro nutrient count so far with almost 40 grams of protein (you can get more protein with more beans or your can add another cup of nut milk if you're an athlete). Anyone with even moderate research can put together a healthy dinner meal that contains 600 calories, 20 grams of protein to meet the remaining macro nutrient needs (of 65 grams of protein and 1,750 calories daily). Based on just my first two meals alone, you don't even need any servings of fruits or veggies as what I outlined already meets daily intake needs for basic vitamins and antioxidants. Perhaps the dinner meal can have some steamed carrots for beta-carotene intake, but that's really splitting hairs here. The bottom line is that it's EASY to get calories whether you're just an average person doing moderate exercise or an athlete. If you ever have a need to pack on more calories, just add a tablespoon of fat to steamed veggies or a pack of walnuts or cashews, etc. I don't want to hear anymore about "calorie deficiency" from an "expert" ever again.

    Drink fresh tap water, eat half of what you normally eat, eat slowly, 2 times meat a week, eggs as supplement, one apple a day keeps the doctor away. I simply eat what my body is asking for. If I want to eat chocolate, I eat it without having to plague myself with a bad conscience. Do sports, art for a healthy body and mind. Rest when your body tells you to rest. My dad and my brother were MDs. Grew up knowing this. Both my dad and brother have passed away. Mortal illnesses. You remind me of them. Wait, you're 200 pounds? Where is all that weight hiding? Saw the game playing videos 😂 New fan here. PS You must be the first doctor that doesn't self medicate having an upcoming airway infection 😉

    Why did you not eat a lot of nuts and avokado? You should had eaten a lot more fat, its not so hard 😆 You need to replace the fat you ate, to other fats! Sometimes the stomach gets ajusted! Also when you are changing a lifestyle/new diet, there is a lot of changes that you are not used to, but once you are, its not that hard and you probably have more time and energy/motivation to go to the gym haha! Other than that, thsnk you so much for making a fair try, and being open minded about Veganism 😊🌸

    It took me 8 months of easing into a vegan diet while doing tons of research on the health, environmental and animal impacts of what we eat. I also researched a lot about a healthy balanced vegan diet (Dr Greger is the best!). Now I have been fully vegan for nearly w years and I have never felt like it is restrictive (even while I was pregnant). I no longer view animal products as food so it isn't restrictive. Just like if you were to move to a place in the world where most restaurants served rat meat in all dishes, you probably wouldn't view staying away from rat meat as restrictive becasue you probably wouldn't be able to get over the fact that you don't view rat meat as food. Research, more research and planning is key.

    Pretty good video. You tried to be unbiased. But woudl be nice for you to plan better and try again. If you had a problem with gas then you probably need to ease into the diet first, do it longer than 30 days and not eat so many processed foods). Also, you should look into the environmental benefits of being vegan as well as the nutritional benefits (and don't forget the animals) this will make you feel exited about being vegan instead of viewing it as restrictive.

    I think you shouldn’t even try it if you really don’t want to. There is no sense in that. Even less if you’re gonna eat like that😂 I thought you liked eating healthy.

    I'm vegan and my roomies are vegan, in my experience: - Having gut problems is completely normal, it can take as much as three months for your body to get used to the new diet, it depends on how much fiber you usually eat.(One time we throw a party and most people thought they had gotten sick because they were going very often to the bathroom... And we were like... Relax... Is just the fiber. And yes, they were totally okay) - You probably felt this lack on will because you weren't doing this out of your own principles.It is much different when you do it because of your believings. - Actually learning how to eat outside being vegan, specially if you are eating with non vegan people I think , , is the hardest part.It can take you months and months to learn where and what.And being on a trip... Is hard even for an experienced vegan. - Finally, this is for you as a doctor: If you already have proposed a patient to include any food of animal origin in their diet and they refused, DO NOT INSIST, DO NOT PROPOSE IT AGAIN unless it is absolutely necessary.For many ofusthis is a matter of ethics, basic principles and believes, so is not up for consideration and it is just very annoying and sometimes even insulting or hurtful.
