    If you have any autoimmune condition – it won’t help you. I’m plant based for 6 years. I think it gives a false hope to people that are deteriorating by the day as I do.

    I went WFPB last month August 1st 2021, I started off at 375lbs and fast forward to today September 29th 2021, I am now 352lbs. I have so much energy throughout the day, the anxiety filled feeling I would have started to naturally dissipate.

    I am a vegetarian for the past 8 years. Honestly speaking now I am more energetic, silent mind, increased confidence, the body became more athletic even in my late 20s, start caring for even small animals and small insects. I no longer get angry and understand the person’s emotions easily. Everyone asks me why I look so young when I tell them I am in my late 20s. I always told them a vegetarian diet and regular exercise help me a lot. I know it is difficult to control the urge to eat meat. It took me almost 6 months to finally leave the meat and fish. I don’t eat eggs also. During my journey of transformation, I spent time with friends who also became vegetarian which motivates me a lot 8 years ago. Thanks to them also. It will be painful in the begging but after few months you will feel so pure and happy from the inside. Please go for vegetarian from today only. You might fail few times but in few months you will have full control over your senses. The most important thing is why I am choosing a vegetarian diet which will motivate you always during this journey. It can be like you don’t want the animals to get killed just for the taste. Others like getting a fit body and maintain it throughout my life. One more like I am bad in controlling emotions like anger and get afraid of things, less confidence. Currently, I am in Bloomington, Indiana, the United States for the past 1 year still I can easily follow my vegetarian diet here also. Please please please go for the vegetarian diet. It will be one of the best decisions in your life. Stay healthy and spread love. 🤗

  12. Marius18 on October 5, 2021 at 8:36 am

    I’ve just begun a plant-based diet. I’m going to see what it can do to ameliorate the cycling of bipolar disorder. Not expecting a cure for a genetic disease, but maybe it will help. I’ll post what I find in a few months.

  13. Dino Zoppo on October 5, 2021 at 8:36 am

    0.01" :" I picked my girlfriend.." .Sure 😂😂😂

  14. Jeffrey Pearl on October 5, 2021 at 8:36 am

    The biggest benefit I received from going plant based, over and above all the health benefits I received was the increased spirituality.

  15. M Shrestha on October 5, 2021 at 8:36 am

    I think he may have turned into a woman

  21. Briana T-S on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    I’m transitioning now into a whole food plant based diet and it is not easy. With the cultural food that I was raised on from different islands and tribes, yes there are vegan options, but my family always added the animal products in. So this isn’t easy right now, but my body is screaming and I need to make a change. If anyone has tips, please let me know. This is my day one and with God on my side, I know that it can be done. Tips are super helpful though and I’d like them!

  22. D W on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    I did well on a plant based diet but got off of it and gained alot of weight. I am going back today

  23. Politically Incorrect on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Vegan people for me are just another group of extremists same as feminists or neonazis or antifa pr taliban etc 😂

  24. Frank Herder on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    This is truly scary

  25. Melissa Carmichael on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    How could anyone not feel what this man is talking about? What a different world we would live in if we all shared his philosophy…

  26. Eden Michell on October 5, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Thank you, TEDx

  27. Nadine Joyce on October 5, 2021 at 8:54 am

    This guy looks sickly. He need to check out dr. Saladino and "vegan deterioration." Plants don’t want to be eaten…lectin, oxalate etc.

  28. KmmBev on October 5, 2021 at 8:56 am

    I became healthier after finding forks over knives years ago, never looking back. Hopefully others will find this path to good health as well.

  29. Bar Soap Man Canada _ on October 5, 2021 at 8:57 am

    I just started plant based. This made me emotional because I’m battling a lot of this right now. Wish me luck. 🌱

  30. Nadine Joyce on October 5, 2021 at 8:58 am

  31. The Waymaker on October 5, 2021 at 9:00 am

    Whats a plant based diet? Is he talking about flowers and plants from the park and woods? If so which ones are good ones?

  32. Richrico Granada on October 5, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Yep, vegans are much more calm and controlled people. Any one can provoke me and provoke me and I never take personally. Life is good and I send a kiss on the forehead of all beautiful Animals. May the Universe make more vegan humans, protect, bless them all as well all the beautiful Animals.

    Veganism has side effects the body can start falling apart through time

  40. Whitley McCauley on October 5, 2021 at 9:10 am

    Today I plan on trying a plant food base. I was originally going to try and buy some meats as well but after watching this I believe I will actually stick to the plant base and try to make it exciting for the kids to be honest. I have scoliosis and I’ve been raised on meat. But I’ve gained so much weight and everything just seems ugh but I want to try this while my kids are still young

  41. Madaki Bitrus on October 5, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Allergies are due to proteins in food. Even if it is a protein in a legume, but if you only eat protein, very probably you will present some kind of inflamation.

  45. Wang Rayne on October 5, 2021 at 9:15 am
