  • What happens if I sign up now that the event is finished will I still get access to it? Does it cost money? Thanks.

  • Greger should study fasting more. It's one of the best things you can do for you body. Apart from a healthy diet, that is. It increases HGH, BDNF, and multiple other facets of health.

  • I have followed Dr Greger for a long time and I don't know why he hasn't approached the intermittent fasting subject directly even though many of his followers have asked him to do it. Any ideas why not?

  • It would be nice to hear more from Dr. Greger on this subject. Dr McDougall is very much pro fasting in his talks. I've noticed that many vegans ignore the subject and even have some kind of bias against, they tend to put fasting in the categories of "diets" or worse as an anti-vegan lifestyle, what is very weird if you think about. Fasting is with us since ancient times, ancient Egyptians and Greek philosophers and so on and people who fasted were inherently vegetarian, so was today before things as intermittent fasting had to become fashionable labels…people already intermittently fasted just by skipping breakfast and the natural nutrition, long before veganism, already considers fasting as the only cure. Btw plant based nutrition + regular fasting made miracles for me and I do 2 workouts a day at 45y.

  • Love hearing all the experts who know exactly all the positives and negatives of fasting and cannot be proven wrong

  • we need nutrients, fiber from food…if we fast we dont get any…also if We will eat clean plant based diet We dont need to fast, this diet has no bad side effects…thats my thoughts🤔

  • This guy is bald as he has poor nutrition. He does not anything about food. He just wants to sell his book

  • get this annoying music off your videos. do you think it somehow makes your videos better? if so, you have a problem.

  • Dr. Greger: I love you. I love your work. Please don't conflate fasting with naive ideas of caloric restriction.

    Fasting is the most evident nutritional help you can give anyone for a few reasons. Everyone does this already at night. Extending the duration of fasts without attempting to restrict calories yields significant and visible evidence in both energy levels and maintenance of a healthy weight.

    Extending fasts for many days yields feelings of wellbeing. It freed me from the "need to feed" when I learned sensations of hunger are exactly the same when I have not eaten for many days as when I have eaten three hours ago. I enjoy intermittent extended water-fasts. One secret is that consumption of even coffee induces the presence of enzymes which are associated with hunger.

  • I am vegan(whole foods)…I am struggling to keep weight on…don't like when I'm 2 thin
    I eat regular meals but when I'm fasting it's simply because I don't have an appetite
    so like hydration …I drink when I'm thirsty
    when I don't fill my jeans anymore…I cheat… I eat a dozen glaze fresh donuts…& I fill right up and it's delicious! GO VEGAN!!!

  • I want see Gregor debate Dr Jason Fung. Fung thinks people are getting fat because they count calories too much -> in an attempt to lose weight, many people decrease their calories but then their body decreases its BMR (burns less calories) to adjust, so people have a tough time losing weight. To him, hormones primarily;y dictate weight loss/gain, which is why it is important to suppress insulin through fasting and/or low carb diet. To Dr Gregor, consumption of foods high in saturated fat (animal products) contribute to weight gain and increases all cause mortality risk.

  • I don't get the Plant based thing, why not Plant Dominant….mostly plants, all the time, the other is such a lazy way to say it…..

  • Yoshinori Ohsumi awarded 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology/medicine &other 2017 Breakthrough Prize in life sciences for his discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy. How cells recycle & renew their content, a process called autophagy / fasting !!!
