I Went Vegan for a Month. Here’s What Happened.

I Went Vegan for a Month. Here’s What Happened.

(dramatic drumroll) I feel like garbage. (music) (upbeat music, with vocalizing) Veganism, the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. Simple, vegans don’t eat meat, dairy, eggs, or any stuff derived from animals. BOOOM! Explanation complete-ly not done yet. That’s the dietary vegan. There’s also ethical vegans who oppose the use of animals for any purpose. Whether in your shoes, pearl necklaces, horse racing, cat juggling, horse necklaces. And then there’s environmental vegans who want to end industrial farming of animals so we can help the environment. And, probably more likely, a combination of the three: the etha-dia-tay… gen-tent-tal vegan, or maybe just vegan. What I’m trying to do here with this video is figure out what it’s like when someone tries to eat like a vegan. What some have told me is that what I’m doing is not trying to be vegan but just going on a plant-based diet. Okay, fine, whatever but during this time I did not do any cat juggling or wear any horse necklaces. So you do the math. Anyway, I hope you understand this better than my dad did when I tried to explain it to him. Luckily, my mom was there to help. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Is tuna vegan? *** no. What about jalapeno poppers? *** no. Carrots? *** yeah. Cereal? **** It depends. You know, I couldn’t be a vegan guy. No ****. Exactly. What? There wouldn’t be any because I wouldn’t be eat anything. You got that right Bub. Hey-ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh So the big question, other than my dad’s very pertinent questions: why? Why am I doing this? Well. One, I like to get out of my comfort zone. Every time I go out of my comfort zone I improve myself in some way. Or maybe not, eating Tide Pods was regretful. I developed an addiction, but I’m getting better now. I’m only eating them on Tide Tuesdays. But because I quit added sugar for a month and the internet for a month. I do have better habits. Two, I want to learn. I’ve always been pretty dumb when it comes to nutrition and cooking and putting those solid things in your tummy hole I believe it’s called food and I believe it’s called mouth. So maybe this will help me move from a level zero food mancer to at least a level two veggie Druid with +4 charisma. Three, I think it’s a good cause, helping the environment and animals. I think it’s a worthy goal and I want to at least try. Four, story time. I was in a cab once and a cab driver told me: So I have this friend, who went vegan and he told me to go vegan, and he said I would feel a-ma-zing. Why are you pretending to drive? I didn’t believe him so I made a bet and then I went vegan and then I felt a-ma-zing. He was right. I’m not paying for this time, am I? You should totally go vegan. You will feel a-ma-zing. Ok. I’m always looking for more ways to have energy, ever since I was diagnosed with a real bad case of the late 30’s and now, the best source, a random cab driver, is telling me that going vegan will solve all my problems. And I did an interview with the host of Healthcare Triage, Dr. Aaron Carroll. Hi, I’m Dr. Aaron Carroll and this is Healthcare Triage. And he totally supported the cab driver’s claim. I’ve been going vegan this month. Why? Um.. Reason I ask, is because, you know, people are doing for ethical reasons, totally on board. If they’re doing it for environmental reasons, I think that there’s a good argument there. But when people tell me they’re doing it for health reasons and they start talking about things like, well, they’re gonna feel great That’s where I’m sort of like, hmmmmmmm? Are you sure? If you are feeling great on any diet you’re eating, I’m thrilled. Like, I’m not trying to talk anyone out of it. When people start proselytizing to others about how it will do those things, that’s where I’m, I’m a little more on edge. A little skeptical? Oh, right, right, right. He totally wasn’t done. Bored. But I was already halfway through by the time I talked to him. Always going to health experiments completely blind. Anyway, I didn’t go in completely blind I did read some blogs, and watch some YouTube videos, and shout at random people in the street. Hey, how do you vegan?! To learn all the things I needed to so as not to die, and eventually I was prepared. At least I felt prepared. So let’s begin. I had vegan cereal with soy milk, banana, and apple and peanut butter. Big old salad. And now I have to figure out what to have for dinner. You’re not joining me this month. Nope. Chyna, why didn’t you join me? Because our baby eats what we eat and while veganism may be perfectly safe for the whole family, you’re just an average schlub and I don’t want you to damage our baby. Good call. After all, we do need her video making skills. And now Ada’s got the tripod. She’s gonna direct this picture. Oh no. Ada. (baby cry) First vegan dinner, whole wheat spaghetti and a ton of vegetables. So I don’t have to make food every night made a giant pot of it. You know what I’ve just been reminded of? I like eggplant. I don’t eat enough eggplant. Wait, is that a zucchini? It’s true though. I was pretty excited about how much I liked eggplant. I texted a picture of an eggplant to all of my friends and family. Not eating animal products is kind of awesome because you get to eat a lot of food without going over your calorie requirements. On the other hand It’s kind of not awesome because you’re not eating animal food. Okay, honestly after eating for a little bit, it does feel lighter. I can tell why it’s less calories. I do feel like it’s missing cheese or meatballs. It does feel like something’s missing a little bit. Alright, so day two, here are my thoughts, really want a dessert. Like I want a Chocolate cookie. I’m craving sugar more now than when we quit sugar. What else? I guess that’s it, really. I never found out why I was craving sugar so much. I think the reason is because I didn’t try to find out. Day three of being vegan, Or plant-based diet or whatever. It is not very hard. I don’t really notice feeling any better or worse. At first it was a bit of a challenge to make sure I was eating enough calories I could see how someone could easily just not eat enough. If you’re not paying attention. Downsides like sugar: inconvenience. The inconvenience issue was pretty much the same as when we quit sugar in fact I could probably just overdub some audio on the same footage and I wanted to just think through a drive-thru and grab something to eat Most fast food. It’s just gonna be all animal products. I think you could probably have french fries I bet there’s animal in fast-food fries. Really? It’s just potatoes. Okay, Google is there animal products in McDonald’s fries? Beep, boop, boop, American McDonald’s fries are fried in beef fat beep, boop, boop Holy- I’m glad I know that they put animal in everything. Why? Even stuff that doesn’t need animal product. But since Chyna and Ada weren’t going vegan There was another level of inconvenience: And I don’t get to enjoy the same meal as my family This was kind of a problem because we only had one kitchen or if we were going out to eat We had to make sure there was an option for me and if I don’t get food when I’m hungry I’m gonna throw a temper tantrum. Am I right fellas? (yelling) But speaking of the kitchen I was getting better at cooking on day five I cooked this cauliflower rice dish it was so good. And I definitely cooked it. Totally cooked it. I don’t miss meat. I don’t miss eggs. I don’t miss milk. Is there anything you do miss? Dessert? I don’t even really miss that now. Turns out the solution to the dessert problem was to eat dessert. There’s lots of vegan desserts I don’t know what I was complaining about I’m kind of a dumb. A really good one was a smoothie from today’s sponsor Daily Harvest who I would like to thank for sponsoring this video They sent me 24 Pre-portioned cups of smoothies harvest bowls and lattes right to my doorstep all organic and plant-based and not just for vegans But anyone who wants to include more fruits or veggies or superfoods in their life. They made it really easy for me to get a vegan snack whenever I wanted one really quickly you know when I get hungry I throw a temper tantrum like *yelling* This try coconut smoothie that has all the ingredients Right there on the cup and the instructions on how to make it or in your liquid I chose oat milk and then I blended it all up. I used an immersion blender. Ooh how immersive. And then I poured it back into the cup. This is seriously really really good I also made this butternut squash chimichurri Cup. Look at all that goodness listed right there on the cup just peel off the top get a compelling close-up drop it in a pan for like five minutes and do the old plate plop and they’re customizable. I’m adding avocado because it’s the 20 teams and everything is avocado and it’s super delicious. That’s better than mom’s home-cooking Even babies like it. More? More? Okay, follow the link below and use the code wheezywaiter for three free cups on your first order Anywho back to how I felt on day six, I feel full more often. I feel less hungry, which makes a lot of sense if you’re eating vegetables and you’re making sure you’re getting enough calories You’re gonna have a lot of stuff in your belly Example: Basically the amount of calories in this hamburger is equal to this much broccoli that might be an exaggeration hard to say I didn’t actually count to anything the point is I was not hungry because well just doing it an awesome way and it’s not that hard Whee Wow. All right. I’m amazing. Yeah Yes, I feel like garbage Oh Oh-oh Totally. Diarrhea, gas, feel very tired and my eye is twitching, nauseous. Could just be getting sick But hey, we got to be honest here. I do not feel good. Luckily. I had a plan for recovery Just like way today. I felt better today. Noice! all good. I’m perpetually really full though Damn it and trying to make sure I get enough calories but there’s so low calorie dense food that I’m getting really full. But then I pretty much felt better and by day 12 I developed a theory. I think it was just my body being like whoa way too much fiber, dude Yeah, I had vegan cereal with soy milk, banana, apple and peanut butter Big ol’ salad, wheat spaghetti, ton of vegetables, giant pot of it, and I’m not ready for that. Yeah. Yeah I’m scaling that back a little bit and I’m feeling better I think a lot of fiber is good for you, but your system has to be ready for it. Yep I had it all figured out I felt terrible again Dammit. Still not so great in the stomach. Also I’ve decided I’m going to talk to some people who actually Might know what they’re talking about. Yes I was totally planning on making this the Craig show only, but I figured it was time to seek help It’ll be okay, it will I’m Adrien Paczosa and I’m a registered dietitian and certified eating disorder dietitian. I probably should’ve talked to you before That would be- Yeah that would’ve been great! What would you recommend for someone that wants to go straight veganism? Yeah, I would say Hey, let’s try vegetarian first like let’s baby step into it and do that. Yeah. Yeah, that’s where I would have started I also talked to this guy. Are you looking to live a healthier more active life and eat some delicious food? I’m Vince Lia and welcome to my youtube channel, and I don’t necessarily push people with showing them how to go vegan I just show them how to incorporate more plant-based option into their meals and start eating healthier like more of a slow approach Unlike what I did Yeah, I definitely recommend a gradual steps I think whenever we make a drastic change, the body feels doesn’t know to interpret it, doesn’t know what’s going on It’s sending out signals that you know is something wrong your GI system a gastrointestinal system has all these cool gut microbiomes in it Whenever we change food that changes it and so that could have also added to the GI Complications you had it I once tried low Carbohydrate diet and I had the same exact experience maybe like five or six days in I felt like crap they call low carb flu Whatever for a couple days and then I got over it Yeah it could totally be your body just adjusting to changes but there’s something else I kept hearing people keep saying I find these blogs and People talking about detox your body is like flushing out the toxins or whatever, but there’s no real- you’re shaking your head a lot. The idea of detox, so This is where it’s terrible. Cause the cameras caught me like making rolls, I can’t stop rolling my eyes, it’s not possible! If you have a liver and kidneys and they function well Yeah, then you’re good. The entire purpose of liver is basically to detox you Yeah, the kidneys pick up whatever slack is really left If you go into the body if you’re having surgery, even when they do colonoscopies It’s clan as a whistle, nothing sticks. We have been consuming dirt and harmful things forever. Yeah, college. Our food and water supplies are the cleanest they’ve ever been It just doesn’t make intuitive sense or historical sense and there’s certainly no good evidence for it. Okay, so a sudden change of diet could have been the problem detox Definitely not but what about my other theory? My theory is that I was eating way too much fiber 70 grams It’s all a few days, you know told that’s yeah I was on average going from 30-some grams of fiber a day to like 70. Holy help! I think that first week may have been averaging like 70 grams a day of fiber how much like 70 I hope your water was like up as well. I don’t think it went up. Oh, oh, yeah. Yeah, that would have been awful Oh my god! That’s- Someone else I talked to had the same reaction, is that a lot? Yeah Give you a little panic attack Well, I think they recommend you get about 30 grams of fiber Were you moving anymore when you have? It actually probably decreased because of the winter and winter you’re super dehydrated Because especially with all that cold and you’re breathing a little bit different. Oh my god, that sounds miserable I’m glad you’re with us, you know in general. It’s like there’s nothing unhealthy about a vegan diet That should make people not feel well unless they’re doing what you’re describing Okay, so my theory seems pretty sound but who knows maybe I was screwing up some other things was they getting enough protein? We don’t need that much protein neat about the palm of your hand as far as serving sizes your hand for your body You can’t actually get a good amount of protein from fruits and vegetables and plant sources It’s more of the little players the micronutrients omega-3s We get a lot from fish oils, but we can also get them from plants, but it’s a little bit harder in the conversion I think they’re pretty magical. It really helps with a brain health cognition. It helps with mood stability Heart health like they are the little magical unicorns of vitamins the minerals in my opinion. I used chia seeds Okay, good. See I’m good at stuff. Chia seeds have a lot of omega threes. I Also have a lot of fiber calcium is a little bit harder we can get from plants That’s just more it to be more mindful and then B12 B12 comes from animal products and you can get it kind of from a plant sources. What does that mean? Alright, let’s try to explain B12 as far as I understand it it comes from microorganisms Lots of animals absorb it from bacteria in their bellies but it’s also found in soil and on plants, but Even VeganSociety.com says that soil and plants are not a good source of B12 if you’re vegan You should be getting B12 from supplements or from fortified foods I was getting it from soy milk but I didn’t realize you gotta shake the crap out of it to really Get it in enough of each serving because a lot of those molecules are really heavy So they get to the bottom of the soy milk wait So what are you doing gonna turn it upside down and shake the crap out of it Okay, thank you. But none of those micronutrients would really be a problem in a month Some of that stuff has to be supplemented, but you wouldn’t be seeing Facts like in the short term. Would your advice just be to wait, like? Yeah I mean nothing you’re describing is life threatening in any way that I’d be like you’ve gotta act on this. It could- it totally could be you just got a virus While you were doing this, yeah lord knows there’s enough out there right now sure. It could have been a virus Not the fibre at all Anyway for the rest of the month. I made sure to limit my fiber intakes. Okay on day 19 I checked in with my friend Jake. Yeah, can my subtitle be a Jake Jeremy not a vegan So what can you eat at McDonald’s? I don’t know. I haven’t gone to McDonald’s. Well, then what can you eat at Arby’s? I don’t know I haven’t gotten Arby’s I can eat at Chipotle Okay, yeah I’m definitely over the hump and I’m feeling good And I actually really don’t miss meat and dairy the thing about you Craig though Is that once you commit to like any goal? I’m just gonna make the best of it Yeah, this I could do this forever if I wanted to yeah, probably well Yeah, that’s kind of me. I have this vegan cheese. Hang on it. We’re gonna you’re gonna try this cheese I am a cheese lover. Keep talking! Craig made me this drink. I forget the name of it. It’s like a Dunkel Howser. Add uncle Vikon Vikon Dunkel. It’s delicious it’s a rye whiskey based favorite experience with cheese the government cheese I got Delivered to our small town from ages like two to five and a half Basically Velveeta is what it was and it was like like Mother’s Milk to me Government cheese Havarti Havarti jalapeno. Jalapeno Havarti. Yeah. Now you’re speaking my language, you know good knows. Mm-hmm Mmm Okay, so nothing like cheese Nothing like cheese, it’s good. Yeah, but I think it pulls me towards cheese and then my taste buds are like But it’s not if you go to a vegetarian restaurant and order something that you have with meat Usually you’re gonna be disappointed because you’re comparing it to something that you already love If you just don’t call this cheese call this like jalapeno snack a lot of people say when you go vegan You should just eat like replacement food. Yeah, I think that’s a big mistake. Yes general for the most part. I’m not eating just replacement food Yeah Would you ever go vegan if it was like one of those Homer Simpson take one more cannonball in the stomach and you’re gonna die Like then I’d go vegan. I think we’re good. What else you want to talk about? So what can you eat at Sonic? I have never been. Okay. So what can you eat at Wendy’s? Don’t know okay, so it was definitely over the hump things were going good until Day 24 things are going pretty good. Just kidding. Everything was fine. I feeling like I’m getting the hang of this tonight I made rice and black beans and sweet potato and avocado and it was good I’m still feeling full all the time, and I’m not feeling terrible. Chyna had pizza. She went and got a pizza She ate that in front of me while I was eating my rice and beans and it was fine I just don’t really miss it Day 31 I don’t think I’m gonna stay strict vegan We’re on our way to Austin, by the way, we’re gonna be surrounded by tacos and barbeque. I’ll tread lightly Oh, I’ll stab a little bit. I feel fine No, no, I know. Yeah, that’s day 31. I’ll check in again after I’m back on the sauce The barbecue sauce Ayyyyyyy So here we are a few weeks later and no I’m not still on the plant-based diet I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about it and I think it comes down to this one convenience aka laziness. I really just think it’s easier I don’t have to plan ahead and figure out what’s in all the food that I’m eating can share the same meal with whoever I’m Eating with at all times nothing history not because I’m allergic to tree nuts – I like eating animal products I just like them. I like the taste I’ve proven that when they’re gone. I don’t really miss them But if they’re an option, I might choose them because I like them I will say though that in the past few weeks. I have chosen the vegan option Sometimes if it was an option, I probably wouldn’t have done that before and I enjoyed them and it was a perfectly full meal I didn’t have that feeling early on I do feel like it’s missing Cheese or meatballs to feel like something’s missing a little bit. And who knows maybe I will go fully vegan at some point But if I want it to last maybe I should take it slow I like Vince’s approach and I don’t necessarily push people with soe to go vegan I just show them how to incorporate more plant-based option into their meals and start eating healthier and Focus on adding foods into their diet rather than taking foods away food like daily harvest for instance I haven’t really talked about the environmental impact that much so far. Let’s do that. Let’s talk to my friend Joe Hanson He’s a PhD biologist. I also host it’s okay to be smart. The human brain is good It’s so much yet. So so bad at big numbers Let’s see if we can fix that in a climate show called hot mess we’ve gotten ourselves into a bit of a hot mess Let’s talk about it on the youtubes. It’s just singular. Actually. There’s just one YouTube. I should have known that by now Yeah, it says it right there. This is odd Yeah animal agriculture has an enormous impact somewhere in the ballpark of 75 to 80% of all farmland grows food to feed the animals So the humans keep those animals or the products that they make for us Cal’s release a ton of methane people like to say cows fart methane actually burp it me, too Anyway, it sounds like if the whole world went vegan All of our climate problems would be solved by a long shot. All of our client problems cannot be solved by a long shot. No We still gotta eat. So even if you’re taking a tall animal You’re gonna have to replace that for growing food that’s directly for humans You could cut our emissions from animal agriculture or the estimates are somewhere around in half. Anyway, you can find lots of numbers and healthy debate about this on the googles and the Internet’s. Just singular actually Sorry, Google and Internet But if you want to see a more thorough explanation of the shocking numbers about the inefficiency of animal agriculture as well as animal treatment There’s a video by kurzgesagt Currents, I don’t know how to pronounce it, but it’s a really good video. It’s linked up here somewhere Absolutely a valid thing to do to go vegan for the environment. You’re not in Congress You can’t change energy policy in the United States. You can choose your food. So are you vegan? I Am NOT vegan. I live in Texas So that’s what the dietitian I thought you said. Are you vegan or vegetarian? Nope! I am a Texan Wait Texans are from Texas. Does that mean vegans are just people from Vegas well too far right now to stop so I’m very glad I did this experiment I feel like I learned a lot about nutrition and a little bit about cooking see that chickpea sweet potato thing there I made that delicious see that lentil soup. Well Hmm. Well, okay. All right I didn’t make that and as for feeling like I have more energy and feel amazing like that cab driver said well No, once I got over that whole fibre Fiasco, I kind of just felt the same. Why is that? I don’t know Maybe it depends on the kind of diet a person has in the first place I don’t think my diet was too terrible before I started Hugh amazing. I’m amazing. Yeah Yes, who knows how well that cab driver was eating before he went plant-based. Maybe I should ask him. No. No, I’m just a reenactment But I feel amazing. Okay, you are not charging me for this part of the ride So it was only a month it probably requires more time for any real major changes also also not all vegan diets are equal you can Bad for you vegan diet. I think was in Trader Joe’s they had these pea pod crisps They’d takied pea pods and like deep fried them. They’re like vegan. It’s like but are we just gonna eat? Potato chips and Oreos Oreos are vegan and sour bacon so someday maybe I will go vegan But I’m gonna take it slowly. I do believe now even more so than I did before that it is a Perfectly viable diet because of doing this and because of the people I talk to if you are feeling great on any diet you’re eating I’m thrilled like I’m not trying to talk anyone out of there. You can do anything your body your choice We are capable of having so many diets that there cannot be just one though changing isn’t always easy It’s hugely complex to change something. That’s at the core of who we are Biologically and culturally eating being the oldest thing that humans have have done besides a couple of other things Like furthering of species weight furthering the species were you referring to? Playing sports. Yes. Okay. Exactly. Okay. We’re very athletic species Anyway going vegan for a month didn’t cure my horrible case of the late 30s But hopefully it sent me down the road towards something something conclusion Thanks to all the people that talked to me during this video I’m going to put links to all their things down below. Seriously, check out that kurzgesagt video about the meat industry and about the environment If you really want to get into the literally gory details about everything It’s animated though So you can still go on kind of denying reality consider that thumbs up button if you enjoyed watching the longest wheezywaiter video in history, and if you want to see more subscribe Here’s a playlist of the other month-long challenges. I’ve done such as no internet and no added sugar YouTube thinks you like this video I do a little update every Monday on my second channel WheezyNews, and a secret vlog every weekday for patrons if you want to support me on patreon I think the next month-long experiment is going to be CBD oil flea doesn’t work, too Well when I get to relax if so then I hope you enjoyed the last wheezywaiter video ever

  1. The United nations warns civilization will collapse due to C)2
    emissions. Farmed animals: chicken, fish, cows, milk etc are causing
    70% of C02. GO VEGAN and save your looks, health and the planet. see
    how: https://youtu.be/XdXmgGBoVSA

  2. when one goes in ignorant they should not be judging.. Its like me trying to be a brain surgeon and when my patient dies what did I do .. Yes. one has to learn.. I know this is your experience and you were ignorant of things so yes. I can see why you had troubles..

  3. Just finished watching your video while being two days into trying vegan for a month. Think I'll just try vegetarian instead. 😂 😂

  4. the people who feel amazing generally have cholesterol problems prior. I always tell people that vegan food is really good for you and you will have a more complete diet if you do it right generally. but the main reason its good for you is because you are cutting out things that are bad for you that you dont need. investing in a plant based diet now will be better for your health long term. I switched my diet about half a year ago. the differences I've noticed are minor. Im leaner in a healthy way and I've noticed I have energy for a longer period of time. other than having lower blood pressure thats really it. unless you have health issues that are related to your diet you won't notice that much of a change

    edit: and I also recommend a slow transition. i became pescatarian then vegetarian then vegan over a long period of time. not only for my body but so I would be more knowledgeable and know about the different foods I could eat

  5. McDonald's fries were cooked in tallow (beef fat) a LONG time ago! They switched to vegetable oils a LONG time ago! And, OMG, I stopped watching as soon as that guy started talking about how our food and water is the cleanest it's ever been. Idiot. Major idiot. We live in the most toxic world. Air fresheners, dryer sheets, perfumes, dyes, fumigation of everything shipped overseas, synthetics, plastics, fertilizers, pesticides, I could go on and on. And on. Our livers are so overburdened, full of toxins and do NOT function properly! And most of us have fatty liver or pre-fatty liver, not to mention everything else society has wrong with them. Before I stopped watching, I didn't see you eating a lot of raw food. Yes, your body probably was shocked by your change in diet and YES it may very well have been detox that made you feel crappy. But it also could have been gluten. Or too much fat. Or any number of other things.

  6. @WheezyWaiter Hey dickhead, there is only one type of vegan: a vegan. A vegan is by definition someone who abstains from using animals for ethical reasons. There is no such thing as an environmental vegan. You didn't go vegan for a month – you went plant based for a month.

  7. A Vegan here with a vegan song 🙂 Please check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JdrV3vku2A&t=4s comments / likes welcome 🙂

  8. Funny how they throw a Chipotle’s Carne Asada comercial right in the middle of the video. Kinda disrespectful too 😅

  9. @ 11:26 food and water supplies the cleanest ever, that cause you got the money and the resources to get the best, what about the average people that has to consume the garbage that the FDA push at them, and the tap water has more chlorine in it that an Olympic pool per glass serving, which still not enough to kill the algies that comes from the feces that is in the water.

  10. Ha ha! I'm from Texas too. BBQ. Nuff said.

    I have tons of friends that are vegan, but I live on Maui now so it's a bit different here.

  11. "I hate healthy for 1 month…here is how it affected me" No one gives a fucking shit. We are Omnivores flat out….Fucking Vegan Nazis are as bad as the All-Meat Nazis…why can't people understand violence. All they understand is their stupid tribalism….tired of all the contradictory information….

  12. I wish you would of had blood work done before and after but I guess I liked your comfort, well being opinion during this experiment. I think with the blood work it would've proven if this was a good or bad diet change

  13. First week of being vegan you may feel like shit. That's from all those toxins in meat and dairy leaving your system.

  14. Like most nutritionists – yours is very ignorant. B12 comes from the earth. Calcium comes from the earth. And saying you need fish oil is the greatest crime against the earth – nothing left in oceans because of fish oil = which should come from algae NOT fish. Nutritionist and physicians – evil.

  15. Better Title: I Went Vegan for a Month Without Previously Informing Myself Correctly On How to Do It . Here's What Happened.

  16. Most vegans were vegetarian before so it makes sense that you'd have trouble transitioning in case you eat animal products on a daily basis.
    I didn't have any trouble at all, nothing changed but I was vegetarian for 5 years before I went vegan and I started cutting out certain meats before I went vegetarian as well.

  17. This video was hilarious! Thank you! I’ve been vegan 3 years….sort of. It took me six months to convert. I did the baby step method. First I stopped eating pork. Then after a couple weeks I cut out beef. The hardest to cut was dairy. But once I did I get way better. I never realized I was lactose intolerant until I stopped eating dairy. Then I cut chicken, then fish. The whole process took 6 months. Now I can’t handle meat. I will eat meat occasionally. Special occasions. The other day I had a small portion of chili somebody brought in with beef in it. It was gross to be honest. It seemed really greasy. And if I eat meat it upsets my stomach and I feel a little nauseous for a few hours. My chili is made with only beans tomatoes and seasonings and I love it that way. I don’t want the meat in it. Makes it taste weird in my opinion. An odd flavor that now I don’t like. Steak? No. I won’t eat steak. I can’t get past the smell. And the blood….ugh…gross. And I used to be a huge meat eater. Sausage and cheese were my favorite foods. I gave up meat for health. And for me it’s worked out really well. I don’t call myself “vegan” really. I’m more “Whole Foods plant based”. You really can’t go vegan over night. It takes time to adjust. That is so so true.

  18. A big plate of pasta??? And you think this is healthy? Most vegans are not that healthy. I was one for over 5 years. Also they are more preachy than born agains.

  19. Just get them frozen bags of veggies and get rice cakes for breakfast with cheerios and mixed berries and a salad for lunch pretty easy

  20. I'm a Vegan for 11 yrs now. I enjoyed your video and glad you gave it a try and now consider meat free options where you can.

    I recommend you watch
    1. Forks Over Knives and What the Health for the health benefits of a plant based diet.
    2. Cowspiracy for the environmental impact
    3. Earthlings for the ethical aspect.

    Also Doctors are not trained in nutrition and providing advice on what nourishes the body and the nutrition is carnist based.

    Doctors like Dr Neal Bernard, Dr Micheal Gregor, Dr Caldwell Esselstyn actually have evidence of reversing coronary heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Check out the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

    World health Organisation has classed red meats and processed meats to be carcinogenic.

    Obesity causes 13 known causes of cancer according to Cancer Research UK. https://scienceblog.cancerresearchuk.org/2019/04/26/bacon-salami-and-sausages-how-does-processed-meat-cause-cancer-and-how-much-matters/

    So think about the life of your little one.

  21. I only eat fish from sources I trust about once a month or less. If they are pumping animals full of antibiotics and in some cases steroids, then I don't want to eat that. Pay more and eat quality meat less often and it will be better for you and the animals. We still have a lot to learn.

  22. I’m new to the party gone plant based but haven’t cut out halloumi yet, so far so good sleeping well and not bloated

  23. I’m planning to go vegan it’s just not ready for the bad feeling withdrawals because since I’m so used to eating meat and animal products my body will constantly crave it until it gets used to not having it. 😞

  24. I definitely think taking it slowly is key. it's such a huge change. I stopped eating beef in 1995 because a mad cow disease outbreak terrified me LOL! When I left home I didn't have much money and cut back eating meat, chicken and fish so was mostly vegetarian. I always hated the smell of butchers and fish mongers since I was a little girl it would make me gag and I hated handling raw meat. Ick. I decided to go Vegan in 2015 and it was easy to transition because I was mostly vegetarian. I watched a couple of documentaries and started following YTers and it just made sense to me, I just couldn't; eat animal products anymore knowing how animals are treated and how the industry operated.

  25. The only rule of going vegan is: Want to go vegan. If you want to go vegan for ethical environmental and health reasons then you'll probably wont have that thought "oh i miss that cheese" "oh i miss that beef" "hmm im too lazy to make a meal plan". After being vegan for 7 years, i dont even perceive meat as a food group, i've reprogrammed my mind over it and i dont have that "oh something's missing" because in my mind i dont compare food with ,lets say, inedible objects. I wouldnt EVER crave in my life my dog's flesh taste since my dog is not food for me. So i'd suggest people who are tempted, think about if you prefer enjoying a taste over an animal losing its life, or over oxygen. Is "being lazy" more important than destroying our home? Hope i helped those who're tempted to go vegan!

  26. Hate the word vegan. Is there a term for only eating plant-based for health but don't give a shit about animals dying and the environment? I use "plant based" currently.

  27. I’m new to being vegan, the only animal product that is hard for me to let go is Whey Protein because it’s affordable in my place and has much more nutrients than plant based ones 😅 am I still in the Vegan club ? X)

  28. If you're looking to transition into a healthier diet lifestyle , going extreme or all in at one time is a setup for failure. lets start with your reasons why
    1. get out of comfort zone. This is good but needs to be approached with small habit changes, leading to a bigger goal. example: try sticking to a Stick to a 80% whole food and 20% pleasure food diet. For most this will be tickling your comfort zone.
    2. Learn more. Learning is amazing and even the best need to always be learning more. at first get the basics down , just like anything in life. example: learn calories in vs calories out first. Learn how to loose weight with diet.
    3. Think its a good cause. This is nice and all but if you cant sustain it, what good are you really doing?
    4. Feel better. This is a good goal to have and should go said with and healthy diet transition. If you get the basics down with sticking to mainly whole foods , learn how to lose weight through a proper calorie deficit . You will feel better.
    Now lets talk about why you quit

    1. Too stressful to plan for. This goes back to getting out of your comfort zone. you got what you wanted but too much on one thing , typically is never a good thing. Just like working out , you would not pick the hardest training program to start out with. You work your way up . this way you slowly step out of your comfort zone and with time the uncomfortable becomes comfortable.
    2. you like animal products. Just like any diet , cutting out certain foods can be hard. Keto for example cuts out most carbs and people jump straight into this diet and fail. Our temptations for the foods we love can be near impossible to ignore. This leads to a feeling of guilt and binge eating when we do cheat. ALL this means is your diet is too restricting and you need a diet the incorporates your favorite foods in moderation. This leads to long term enjoyment and sustainability.

    When one can do everything listed above and prove to themselves to be successful at it , then and only then should thy try an all in approach to diet change .

  29. I think we should also force the bears, wolves, sharks, tuna, cone snails, etc etc etc to be vegan. they are oppressing the plant eaters in the animal kingdom!

  30. cool video, you made my google home hub go off and scare the shit out of me when you were looking up Mcdonald's French Fries. thanks haha. i put it on volume 10 at night so the alarm is loud in the A.M.

  31. “Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by discomforts.” Arnold Bennett. and I say, anything you want, you must want it. if not, it is no use. you will not do it. you won't make it.

  32. We are 80% raw vegan and 20% vegan. We eat 2 tablespoons of sauerkraut for probiotics and we make sure we vary what we eat every day so that we don't get bored or lack any nutrients

  33. I really enjoyed this so thank you! I am mainly vegan but slip due to being to lazy at times to insist on strict vegan foods. I have had the too much fibre experience too!

  34. Fun fact: Every single carbon atom exhaled, burped, excreted or accumelated by and in the cow, comes from plant material that absorbed CO2 from the air. It’s called the carbon cycle. You should look it up. The reason for increasing amount of carbon in the atmosphere is burning up what took nature million of years to deposit in earth. NEVER loose focus on that.

  35. Concerning the issue of detox. If you're not digesting foods properly as was my issues you are a toxic bomb! You will have issues with your skin, leaky gut, bloating, constipation, disease like Chrones, Diverticula … etc. When you get the digestion issues resolved than those issues will go away. Anyway, how do you go vegan and not eat too much fiber?

  36. Very entertaining and love your unbias approach. Here’s a video you might like not as funny but adds some facts to it all. https://youtu.be/cuMoEnqd3EQ

  37. Hey man, Cool video. Ive recently run into some vegan as a possible option and am obviously doing some research on how it all works what to eat etc. Was it quite difficult planning what to eat etc? was it also more or less expensive than your normal grocery shopping?

  38. Honest question: With all the research and all you know, how are affected? Oh, Texas. Live in Texas for many years as a vegetarian, sometime vegan.

  39. Thank you for trying it out and all the education you put out for others. If anyone wants to see what the animals go through, you can find a documentary on youtube called Dominion.

  40. If you can watch “THE GAME CHANGERS” now on Netflix.. watch what meat does to our Arteries. Scary, no wonder so many younger folks are dying of heart attachs. Worth the watch, maybe just cut way back on meat..

  41. Oh my gosh! Mom swiping right on Tinder the whole time just killed me! So funny, man! My wife and I are in the middle of doing the same thing. You are a Godsend! Subscribed!

    Edit: Just watched the sugar video. Mom's not swiping right on Tinder, but it was still the funniest thought while it lasted… 😀

  42. i've got to say, after watching "Gamechangers" documentary, i went in eating vegan,.. most effects are noticeable if you are fairly sporty..my heartrate went down by a bunch.. but cant jump in like Mr Wheezy here

  43. Great video mate i enjoyed it. I think eating whole vegetables and grains is important in the diet. Not processed vegan products. They're no better than processed animal products. The best diet in the world is the mediterranean diet. Lots of extra virgin olive oil, beans, lentils, vegetables AND animal products occasionally.But not from any animals. Lamb. Lamb fat is monounsaturated like what's in avocado and olive oil so it's healthy. It's not surprising that one of the blue zones in the world (where people live the longest) is on the Greek Island of Ikaria where people can be 100 years old and be very healthy! And they eat meat, just balanced amounts and not from fast food shops or butchers! Home grown. And it's not just diet! It's lifestyle! Stress, depression etc shorten your life! In Ikaria they dance and sing every night and celebrate. And everything is grown naturally. It's the elixir of life!

  44. A made a 6 year transition. Starting by quiting on dairy, and processed meat. Then i quit meat and introduced mushrooms and other veggiesi didn't liked before to my diet. And after 3 years i quit all the other animal products. It was the best thing i have done in my life. Also i am diabetic type 1, and i dropped my insulin shot by half. Lost some weight but always feeling fine. The only thing i felt different from him, i was always hungry. XD but that took like 1 month and then i felt better
