    I'm plant based for 3 years, I've only seen improvement, must get diversity in diet, most people unfortunately they are limited to up to 10 items a week, I eat over 30 including fruits, veggies, pulses, nuts, seeds and sweets too..

    Been a healthy vegan for nearly 3 years the one question I get asked all the time is " what do you eat?" 😱

    Great video Mark, great perspectives on approaching conversations with people who have that fixed mindset in terms of what is regarded as a ‘typically heathy’ diet! Would love to see a video of you & Jens typical meal plans for the week, and whether you meal prep or cook from scratch each day.

    Love the humour, one of the best videos of this kind. Now what we all want to know is what a typical day of eating looks like!

    Great video! I sightly disagree with your mechanic analogy. Besides B12 we have all the other tools available. Arguing steak vs beans/chickpeas/seitan etc is more like different brands of the same tools. Sure I might not have all the same brands of tools available but I can still get a screwdriver that does the job.

    Something interesting that happened to me was within a few months of starting a plant diet was I found my body just got rid of the residual fat around the waist/love handles and back without me even trying to. I just noticed one day I started fitting into 30W trousers. I never seemed to manage to get rid of the extra fat on an omnivorous diet even when I was at the gym 5 days a week and eating as healthy as I could practically do to actively reduce body fat percentage. Was at 32-34W no matter what I tried.
    It was probably because I replaced any meat, fish, or eggs in my diet with a load of legumes and and wholegrains. Hulled barley, chickpeas, and kidney beans mostly. Filling and nutritious. I eat a lot so making sure I bought mostly whole foods and filling up on those probably made the difference, not just the ommiting of animal produce itself.
    When I started though I was very unsure what to eat and overconcerned myself with possible nutritional deficencies. I guess anti-plant diet misinformation was feeding that, because I stopped worrying after a nutritionist friend pointed out my diet wasn't much different to before seeing as I ate everything a healthy plant diet needs anyway, but just without the meat, fish, dairy and eggs on top.

    I think that initial worrying prompted me to increase my fruit, nut and seed consumption because I thought I wasn't getting enough vitamins and minerals, haha

    Gotta be honest, I started out leaving a pretty negative comment. You spent 3/4th of the video sounding like another confused carnist that thinks veganism is a diet. It sounded like you were only looking at it as something you get, rather than something you give. The right to life of animals. Out of curiosity, what documentaries have you watched thus far?

    Wow! Fantastic job presenting veganism in a clear and non-threatening way 👍🏼 Also, I like that you clarified that veganism is not a “diet” and it really has nothing to do with health. For anyone who struggles to understand what veganism actually means, I usually explain it as simply avoiding unnecessary violence toward animals.

    From a health perspective, if anyone is curious about the potential benefits of a healthy plant-based diet, a great place for information (without having to read through hundreds of peer-reviewed studies… unless you want to since they’re all referenced) is https://nutritionfacts.org

    I find the basis of the vegan diet very strange. Why cut out the most nutrient dense foods in the form of meat and organs and replace it with foods that are less bioavailable in micronutrients and highly defended with lectins, oxalates, digestive enzyme inhibitors, etc. Carnitine, carnosine, creatine, taurine, glucosamine, Vitamin K2, B7 and B12 to name a few. However, as you said if the alternate is burgers and ice cream then i'm sure its healthier.

    Would love to see a 'I ate a steak for the first time in a year video' 😉

    Great video but I must disagree with you on one point. Many of my vegan friends DO add items to their diets which nobody else does, typically unnatural, processed food or a food which defines itself by what it isn't and isn't clear about what it is, including ingredients which contain ingredients if that makes sense. This is in addition to the perfectly great vegetables they eat.

    Also, treating different animals differently is normal, even for vegans. If you started eating dolphins, you'd not be hypocrite then? What does that change?

    Idk mate, I eat plant based (mostly) because I live with a vegetarian and without reading any of the articles oit there about the health benefits – i noticed a big difference.

    Number one test – eat some meat before a ride vs eat plant based before a ride. My HR and overall experience is notably different.

    You're very well-spoken, smart & balanced person, Mark! I really appreciate your constructive & mature conclusions! I've been living vegan lifestyle for the last 10 years (the last 6 of which I'm doing sports consistently). If only more people were like YOU! #respect
