How to make healthy eating unbelievably easy | Luke Durward | TEDxYorkU

  • Опубликовано: 16 мар 2014
  • After breaking his leg, undergraduate student Luke Durward used his time to return home and mentor his little brother on healthy eating. While illustrating his brother's dramatic transformation, Durward shares the obvious secret that is repeatedly overlooked by unsuccessful dieters.
    TEDxYorkU held its 4th annual event on March 4, 2014 at York University. The theme for the event was Combustion. Follow us on Twitter @tedxyorku
    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

    He is 100% right. I purged as much unhealthy food all at once that I could and slowly but surely replaced things I used up with the organic /whole food replacement. I started with just buying a fluoride free / organic toothpaste instead of my normal crest brand. Then I replaced all my seasonings, condiments and now everything I have is organic / whole.

    And then you starve.
    I lost 15 kg without meaning to, or needing to. You can't just buy healthy food in stores, that basically doesn't exist. You have to do everything yourself from scratch. This is worth it but it ain't "easy".

    After almost 6 minutes all he said was, don't buy unhealthy food, that is exactly why I hate video tutorials, that and people who need to prepare stuff on the video, because they couldn't set the stuff up before, and those people who think their annoying useless introductions, logos and AMVs are an upgrade to your life.

    Okay but what happens when you drive past your favorite fast food place? Or you aren't in the mood to cook? Or you don't have someone to sit there and do it for you... My boyfriend has been eating awful food for 28 years now. We don't have ANY unhealthy food in our house. I cook for him when I can, but if I am not there, he doesn't like to cook.

It's true that removing the temptations (barriers to success) from your environment sounds pretty straightforward, but I love how he speaks from personal experience in seeing it work for him and his family. Thank you for the inspiring, motivational message! I also dig the Canadian accent!

    I suggest that the Ted Talks people go back and edit this. Start the program at 5:46 and just call it a Mini Ted or something like that. Yes, he has bad habits like pacing the floor. And it's painful to watch, but what he has to say is practical. I suggest that this be redone perhaps as an interview with him and his brother. A skilled professional speaker could help make it easier for him to share his story. It's valuable because it worked for his brother, it just needs some fine tuning.

    Long way to tell a short message and I do the same thing with great success. You simply don't buy those tempting bad foods at the store, and it never makes it to your home. If you don't have it, you can't fail in not eating it. It seems stupidly simple, but it really works!
    Kudos to the guy for the attempt, but he is very monotonous...and when he had the "brain block" he should not have admitted it, and instead let it be silent until he was ready for the next part. Practice makes perfect!

    I cant fault the guy for giving a good impassioned speech but this "one trick to eat healthy" sounds like clickbait. Theres a reason obesity is the monster it is, and thats lack of education not obstacles. The issue isnt that we choose the bad choice over the good choice but rather that there is no good choice when we dont know how to cook or order healthy meals.

  • Ulquiorra Cifer

    In theory, this sounds great, but it does require will power. This will definitely work for children, since they can't buy their own foods, but for adults, they can just run to the store whenever they crave something unhealthy.

    I am concerned with my health. In my household, no one else has the same concerns as I. And despite my many attempts to convince my mom to buy healthier options, she still does not. She claims that because no one else would prefer more fruits and vegetables, so it would only cost more and the food would go bad, which would be a waste of money. I predict this is due to my family’s lack of knowledge about nutrition. I know that if my mom knew how to cook healthy food and make it taste good, she would buy healthy food. But even I fear that if she does make an effort to buy different magazines and cook books, and educate herself about healthy food, she and everyone else would still fall into old habits and it would not only be a waste of money, but a waste of our time and effort. Everyone in my family is quite stubborn when it comes to this topic, and I would love to hear some advice.

    In theory you would think he is right but I dont think its that easy - I grew up in a house with no junk food and I had a weight problem from a young age where as many of my friends who were slim grew up in a house with a "goodies" draw. Every time I went out I craved for what I didnt have at home where as I believe because my friends had sweets readily available it lots its strong desire.

    Not so easy. I have to do the shopping and have to walk the aisles. Easy to say but very hard to do to choose better healthier food. Before watching this, I actually threw out a lot of bad food but when the cravings hit, it's very easy to buy more bad food. Mindset has to be reached before you can buy better healthier food. Need to change your mind set about bad habits first and the rest follows. That's the hard part. Getting the mindset right. Like an aha moment in your life to change your mind about how you look at food and buy better food for your health.
