    Thirty days of going vegan is in the books and I have to say this one was a bit more difficult than keto for me as it took me out of my comfort zone. This Vegan 30 day challenge certainly surprised me in several ways and at the end of the day, I think it is a reasonable diet to follow as long as it's planned adequately.

    Hey Dr Mike I think it's pretty cool you gave vegan a try I just wanted to point out that making a huge shift to plant based will cause gas but it's only temporary. unless you go crazy on stuff like garlic, cruciferous veg, and such.
    I've been Vegetarian off and on for about 26 years and went vegan almost a year ago. Everytime I would go from Omni to Veggie or Veggie to Omni I would be really gassy for about 1-1 1/2 months. My kids hated the adjustment periods. My biggest issues with dietary change is going from Veggie back to Omni as I have to start with small quantities of fish and slowly work my way up to poultry then beef, as it causes major discomfort if I just dive in. Pork doesn't like me so I avoid pork all together. Now that I'm vegan I would have to slowly introduce myself to dairy again as I cheated about a couple months in doing vegan and I was miserable. I don't really see that happen anytime soon as I'm doing what my body told me to do and it seems pretty happy with it.
    Also to get an appetite going you'd want to go with more fresh whole foods. Vegan processed foods can be healthier but they should be a treat like any processed foods, a lite snack/addition (like a sprinkle of cheese), or for things like mock meats only a couple meals a week. A lot of stuff is easy to prep if you have a few basic tools, a freezer, and an hour or two to spare a week. I always struggled with lack of appetite before going vegan and now I eat like a guniea pig. Large quantities of food each meal at least 4 meals a day. I can't believe how much actually eat but lost weight while doing it. While before I'd eat one snack and 1 meal and I felt like I had to force myself to eat more.
    And one more bit of info when making a major shift into a new diet slow conversion is the best way to go. I know that's not something you can do for a 30day challenge but IRL taking time to cut out meats and dairy, learning about/exploring/incorporating plant based foods works so much better than going cold turkey.

    how do you recommend healthy eating for patients with a lot of allergies? Like I tried going vegan for a while when my friend did but Im allergic to nuts and soy milk (first and last time I had soy milk I ended up in the ER with my throat closing and I hadn't had that happen in almost a decade when I ate cherries for the last time) and I am so used to using dairy products to dampen my day-to-day itches (like my mouth and throat itches after eating tomatoes or avocados or salad. Basically anything green, but since my throat doesnt close I'd rather have greens with a glass of milk than no milk at all) Im asking because all diets and meal preps and tips and tricks ive found online are great for those cutting meat, milk, or gluten but what if I cant have the bananas or apples or almonds that is put in literally every mealplan?

    With eating honey, it does count as an animal product so isn't allowed in a strict vegan diet. That being said like vegetarians there are subcategories of veganism, one of which is called a "beegan". Essentially it follows the rest of the vegan diet however still allows the consumption of honey, this is more commonly used by singers as it can help soothe your throat.

    Another challenge for you. Doing a Carnivore diet vs Mediterranean diet compare that with vegan diet. Use analytical skills to find the best diet. Exactly honey is not vegan, but it's not cruel to the bees collecting honey. Or is it? Hmmm... gluten free but you don't have Celiac disease. Too much sodium is making me bloating. Yes processed food is not good.Unfortunately our society eats processed foods due to lack of time and busy schedule. Lot's of microwavable food.

    I think vegans should focus on making sure animal slaughter is done with dignity rather than totally cutting it out.

      But can you ever kill an animal with dignity? Do you think the unnecessary taking of life can ever be done with dignity? No animal wants to die. You don't want to die. Would it make it okay if someone killed you or someone you love with dignity? What does killing someone with dignity look like to you?
      And how was someone killing equivalent to someone curing people? Why push the standard, if we can just give up hurting animals completely?

    I believe your digestion problems were caused by the stress of having to resist temptation. As stupid as it may sound, not eating things that makes us happy for a long period of time can actually be stressful, which is why we tend to indulge ourselves once we eat it again, like a bunch of junkies. You said yourself the first day, looking at the food, you started having doubts, that's the kind of stuff that stays in the back of your mind and festers. I have chronic anxiety, and stress takes a huge toll on my digestion. Also, biologists did notice herbivores tend to have to pass more gas than carnivores, could be it too.

    I totally understand where you come from saying veganism is restrictive, but as a vegan, I say it’s so much easier to stick to veganism when you don’t focus on health alone! Taking all of the reasons for vegan into account makes it a breeze to say no to that cupcake or whatever it is. Plus, you can always find a vegan version of something😉

    Veganism just isn't an option for me. Diagnosed with ADD at a young age, one of the key things about that disorder is a hyper focus with regards to detecting textures in food that no one else does. Most vegetables have textures that trigger my gag reflex, and there is no amount of willpower that will allow me to swallow, as trying to force myself will result in violent vomiting. The few that I can eat (green beans, corn, asparagus, and frozen peas) aren't enough of a variety to sustain my life as a diet.

  • Dennis Kent

    To everyone put off by this video - I urge you not to listen to many of the things he says. I know at the end of the video he says he encourages people to try it and talk to qualified people. Nonetheless, I want to mention a couple of things: Being vegan can be an amazing journey with more stamina, clarity of mind, better skin, better weight control, more happiness, more compassion and so much more. Many things said here are just so typical for people with little to no solid nutritional education/for doctors. He got sick and wondered if he should have stopped being vegan? Let me tell you this: I used to get a cold two times a year before going vegan, even when I was a "healthy vegetarian". After going vegan it got much better and when I did get a cold it was gone faster. I have been working in an office with over 60 people and in the last 1 1/2 years I have NOT been sick despite everyone else being sick 2 to 3 times during that time period. Now I know, this is going to be called "anecdotal evidence" but ask many other vegans how their health improved and research yourself. It actually only takes basic logic that a balanced and abundant vegan diet with a focus on whole foods is one of the healthiest diets out there. Sure there are people whose health decreased over time, let's not pick cherries here but usually those people had much worse underlying conditions to begin with. And of course it takes some getting used to, since you're changing everything you've been doing your whole life when it comes to your eating habits but once you get the hang of it, it's everything BUT restrictive! I've followed Dr. Mike for quite some time and I used to think he's open and looks at things differently but the more videos I watched, the more I got a different vibe. Dr. Mike if you're reading this, in no way am I hating on you, I just think you could sometimes look a little further across the boarder of what you've been taught and of what you believe is "true", especially when it comes to medicine and nutrition.

    there is no true “healthiest” diet. Everyone’s body is different. It’s really determined by your genetics, body chemistry, and environmental factors. I will say that veganism is both the most environmentally/socially conscious, and the safest option, but in no way is it the healthiest for everyone.
    Little bit of background: I did the vegan thing. Stuck with it for about 9 months. I do a lot of manual labor. No decrease in energy or anything, however, even though I watched my fiber intake closely, I could never avoid the gassiness, and I would smell disgusting. In addition, I lost muscle mass, because you must eat a good deal of volume of nuts, beans and other foods that I simply don’t want to eat all the time to get proper protein intake, nor do I have a particular taste for. Veganism wasn’t right for MY body. I swapped to my original diet, except I cut out about 90 percent of my red meats. Foods easier to come by, I wasn’t bloated, and got to eat my favorite foods again. I feel that my overall health is much better on my current diet, as opposed to the vegan diet. Hats off to those who can pull it off, but it simply isn’t for me. My physical well-being outweighed a social cause. Don’t regret trying it though.

    I mean, a vegan/vegetarian diet is STILL going to be better than a mostly plant-based diet with a little bit of poultry and fish. Because no meat >> a little bit of meat in regards to health as long as you get the few goods things from meat from other sources in plants.

    Meat was incredibly easy to eliminate for me, and I don't think being a vegetarian (which is what I am) is restrictive AT ALL.

    I really like the plant based diet he talked about. It's more flexible, people are more likely to try it, and it's still a net positive for the individual, the environment, and other people in the area who can't have certain non-vegan items due to beliefs, dietary restrictions, and/or food allergies.
    I'm very alergic to whey protein and for a long time felt very limited and left out in some cases. The town I lived in didn't even have almond milk until about five or ten years ago. Now I live in a city with more vegitarians, vegans, and the like which means LOTS of great new safe options for me. I can have icecream with friends now, have safe options when I go out without it being a big deal, warm up with a nice cup of hot coco, and easily find safe snacks (like cliff bars) to keep in my purse for long walks or a day at the museam. I also know people with other food allergies and a friend with celiac disease who have benefited from foods that adhere to a belief system or are popular.

    it's awesome that you tried a vegan diet! flatulence is pretty normal when transitioning to a vegan diet. i mean it is a big change, so it takes some time for it to go away. in regards to your energy levels, gym motivation, and chub gain... maybe in the future, if you challenge yourself to do it again, restrict the packaged foods and eating out and then see how that makes you feel and describe those experiences. find healthy whole foods plant based recipes online and cook them at home so you can eat a healthy version of a vegan diet. keep us posted! :)

I figured it was all the FIBER! And no, honey isnt vegan but it IS ethical! Bee Keepers help bees and keep them alive, and bees are so incredibly important for our ecosystem. I think caring for our ecosystem is a little more important, but that's just my opinion.

  • Linii Holly
    Linii Holly Day ago

    I think with almost all diets/diet changes you have to figure out the best way how it can work for you. And that will take more or less time. For me, it took almost three years to find the best way how veganism works for me, but in my whole lifetime, I never found a way how eating "everything" would work. So 30 days might be a good start, but if someone really wants to become vegan (or any other diets) they might have to take more time to figure it out and kind of "learn" how to cook a certain way. As long as you feel good and healthy doing this, of course.

    Some good points raised..and you showed how to do a vegan diet in the wrong way, which is great because it shows that even doctors can get it wrong when they aren't educated on the science. It also showed how to fail well when you don't plan your meals and you eat processed vegan junk foods. You also promoted pre prepared processed meals throughout, which (vegan or not) generally are not healthy. You do however support a Mediterranean diet, which has very little science currently available for the treatment of non-communicable diseases.

    No argument here except for if someone really wants to be vegan they shouldn’t eat anything that uses pesticides. Most vegan lie to themselves about them helping the environment or even themselves it is unhealthy overall

    Hey dr mike I’ve been a vegetarian for two years now and I was told that we have certain bacteria in our stomach that change when you no longer eat meat. The gas does stop big shout out from Staten Island.

    The gas problem will disappear after a couple of months. I've been vegan for about a year and I will never go back to eating dead animals. (Yes, I'm a vegan because I don't want to kill animals, I love ALL animals, and I believe the animal babies deserve their milk, not soy milk (we ought to drink that!). So basically I'm being kind to animals. That's the reason.
    TO BE HONEST the main reason I managed to lose weight while changing to vegan diet, was that I stopped eating snacks all the time, and thus allowed my insulin levels to drop to a healthy level, which in turn allowed my "body to eat the lunch from the fat".

    mike i would say the “best” way to do vegan is eating all whole foods or even raw, it causes you to eat nothing processed and you feel so good, just remember to drink apple cider vinegar

  • that's not logic

    If I would be in a hospital
    You would give me a meltdown

  • that's not logic
