    I think vegans should focus on making sure animal slaughter is done with dignity rather than totally cutting it out. Let be real, being a butcher in America back in the day was equivalent to being a doctor. Standards have fallen and its up to us to push the standard.

    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.

    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 follow a pescatarian diet because it's more realistic for me at the moment; I basically do what diet you described recommending in the video except i abstain from red meats because my body just doesn't like it 🤣 I tried going vegan once and I got bloated and gassy too! 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.

    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.

    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".

    As a lot of people are writing, the bloating goes away after a month or so, I shift between vegan and Mediterranean diet 6 months at a time and every time i go back to vegan i bloat in the start, drinking a lot of water helps get rid of it quicker. And not all vegans are against honey, just make sure it’s cruelty free. Also a nice tip is to try new cuisines instead of relying on substitutes - indian, thai, armenian, Ethiopian cuisine and many others have delicious dishes which are very often vegan 🌱

    What you tried is a diet, a plant based diet which is not the same as being Vegan. Veganism are the ethics against animal abuse and there's no way you could care about animal suffering for just 30 days. Don't get me wrong. I'm saying this to stop a little bit with the confusion between being Vegan or just practicing a diet. 💚✌️ I'm glad you made this video with a neutral perspective because I saw other doctors trying a plant based diet. They did everything wrong from the start without asking someone specialized about plant based diet, buying expensive unnecessary stuff, not planning and eating terribly bad lacking nutrients.
