    Everything gets boring after a while. Any reason is good enough. Most times we get into a lifestyle for not all the reasons for lack of better ways to say it. After a while if we got in for "vanity" reasons or to loose weight as an example or build an audience then we just follow the trends.
    The reasons are broad though other than slight sources a vegetarian lifestyle gives the body all it needs.
    The source of what we eat vegan or not makes a huge difference. What we eat should not be such a public issue though once we put our life it public then all bets are off. Any reason will do.

    Lol all these problems plus the ones obese people have can be solved by balance dieting. Eat everything in moderation and you will be fine. SIMPLE. He’s explaining the problems and why but the answer is simple there wasn’t enough variety. If we weren’t suppose to eat meat then we wouldn’t have started to eat meat. It was much harder to eat meat BC times and now that it’s easier we eat too much. Simple moderation

    • Markledorf
      Markledorf 11 days ago

      His skin and hair quality looks good (as in not unhealthy) to me, I don't know what kind of standards you have though. Getting thinner hair is pretty normal as we age, but I don't think he has thin hair now in comparison to what it looked like in his oldest vids. If he does, it doesn't have to be related to his diet at all, since genetics can play a big role in hair loss/texture. Just because you're vegan doesn't mean you're immune to the effects of aging or having flaws, and someone not looking the way you assume healthy people do doesn't disprove that a diet can be healthy.

    I saw a Neurology Chiropractor that put me on a limited diet plus supplements to heal my gut... The program and supplements were from Apex. Many Chiropractors carry their products and programs. The program i was on was to rid my gut of any parasites, bacteria, yeast overgrowth, and stabilize my gut biome. It usually a 30 day program, though my gut took about 45 days to stabilize. I HIGHLY recommend APEX programs for gut issues. I did the Plant based meal plan option. My gut is happy now on a vegan plant based diet!

    Adding Flaxseed to my diet solved my insomnia but over time contributed to too much fiber. Switched to Hemp seed and problem solved. Many doctors aren’t educating themselves on vegan dietary needs (I used to work for a doctor) and that’s frustrating because when you are ill, you go to a doctor.
    Extreme dieting may get lots of likes online but we get a lot of ill informed people spreading their idea of what healthy eating should look like.
    I was surprised when told I was prediabetic. Those cool influencers promoting a dozen bananas a day don’t realize the body turns it into sugar. No more bananas, low GL fruit in moderation, replace oatmeal with hot wheat cereal, replace whole wheat bread with Rye... No longer prediabetic.
    Being vegan can feel like a bit of trial and error, but the right mindset is important. That’s something the “vegan for a week” videos completely miss.
    I agree with your comments that as an influencer her decision to stop being vegan impacts her audience and can shift her brand.
    Being vegan isn’t supposed to be about proving your better than others just because you eat half a watermelon.
    Thanks for the science and the care you put into framing your response.

    why don't vegans who are having serious issues go see VEGAN doctors? Am I missing something? even if you don't have vegan doctors around, don't trust any other doctor. no disrespect though, I know it's difficult and they went through a lot. just thinking out loud here... as you said, the problem is there's no vegan medical community.

    She says that she doesn't blame the vegan diet... but definitely, an extreme diet causes issues. There's no denying that. It got so bad because of whatever the cause was that the result was needed to incorporate animal products back into their diet to become healthy again. There really isn't anything to react to. It is what it is. To be clear, I don't necessarily support veganism, but I support people who do. I believe any extreme diet is unhealthy and as far as the ethical approach, there are ways to get animal products where they are kept in humane, even heavenly conditions.

    Sound to me that going from an Omni diet to a largely Fruitarian diet was the cause of their problems cos of the shock of the detox that making this radical change would cause. Detoxing from a v unhealthy Omni diet straight into a fruit diet is too much in one go. If they had gone through the stage from vege to ( unprocessed food) Vegan diet, then after a few years move gradually to the mainly raw mainly raw diet, they would of been fine, better than fine, they would of been glowing with health! Many moons ago I was sharing a house with 2 people who were on an 85% raw 100 Fruitarian diet, but they used the widest definition of ‘Fruit’ meaning the Fruit or Fruit baring part of plants. So included grains, Legumes, puleses, veg fruits, seeds, Nuts etc. I decided to do the same after being Vegan for 3-4 years, and even though I was on a healthy Vegan diet at the time, I still noticed some spots appeared on my inner thigh and my arse cheecks. That I put down to eating much more raw food, just shows you though that even cooked food build toxins in your body!.

  • Diane Diehl
    Diane Diehl Month ago

    Why folks go to such extremes - the fruit - all just is not logical. Keep it to basics and listen intuitively to your own body. Plant Based is the most healthy diet but it is not a crime to fall off the wagon so to speak. Grandma's wisdom: Eat only things that grow and stay away ideally from anything man touches. Don't fool with mother nature. So when you go to extremes, like a fruit diet you get your system all messed up - key is balance. The body is like a chemistry lab - not one thing will fix your system - so just concentrate on eating plant foods you enjoy, keep it simple and stop all the over analyzing. Your chemistry lab knows how to re balance if you feed it plant food. Any supplements, even B12 is man made and you can interrupt your chemistry lab - so allow the genius of your own lab get you in balance.

    When you have humans evolving over hundreds of thousands of years on omnivore diets you end with humans that are fitted to work best on such diet.

      @Jessica Williams Okay, than I might have read it wrong, my bad. And I agree with you there are a few - some Vegans on here, let's say most vegans are rather the opposite than that. I honestly never met a vegan offline that was half as in your face aggressive as people on RU-clip can be. And I am mostly kind of scared to even say I am vegan not like I am ashamed, but I fear people put me in a pot with those. But as it is with any Group you built out of humanoids one say so others say so, like tbh I don't care if you eat a whole pig infront of me, I just don't want to touch it's insides anymore or eat it. ^^ But I am so far also not following a very special diet like low carb or such. So maybe just watch some other RU-cliprs who happen to be Vegan but don't shuff it down your throat like they just steped in a wasp next on a bad day. ;) ;) ;) I actually stopped watching Vegan RU-cliprs because of that yet I am "one of them" but not "one of them"

      @Channy Whocares My comment was aggressive? Didn't mean for it to sound that way, maybe read it in a different voice? I just have been watching a lot of video's lately about vegan/raw vegan and people always think they know it better than your PCM. I have seen people make video's just to complain about other vloggers. I've seen people complain about vlogger's hair, or the sound of their voice. I like videos where people give their perspective on a topic, not another vlogger.

    But of course, that is like everything is you don't eat moderate it doesn't matter that it's healthy or not if you eat something in an extreme way you are gonna get health problems. Eat is a need that like any other animal we must do for our body to work but if you overeat and exceed what you need to have every day or you don't eat too much you are gonna get sick (being vegan, vegetarian or whatever). But if you look after your body, eating moderate and with a variety in veg, fruits, pulses .. etc etc

    They quit for a vegan diet for health problems because they didn't look after their bodies and instead to try to do it right and eat balance, they put the 'excuse'

    I have ibs. I’ve suffered from ibs since I was 14. I’ll note that since I was 12 I was what I call “a part time vegan.” So basically I wasn’t really eating the standard American diet and if I was it was a lot less frequently than my peers. A couple months after my 14th birthday I started taking birth control (I believe birth control was the reason for my ibs) and also quit playing basketball and lacrosse. After I started taking birth control I started to feel terrible. I was tired, started suffering from mental health issues, (which are huge triggers for IBS) and was experiencing really bad digestive issues. I went to the doctor and got the ibs diagnosis. I didn’t want to take any antibiotics for it since there isn’t really a cure, so I fixed my diet. I now didn’t have any animal products at all, no gluten, soy, peanuts, or high fodmap vegetables. And I started feeling better as summer came. Another thing that helped me and still helps me is intermittent fasting. After fasting, fixing my diet, drinking probiotic tea and apple cider vinegar, using lots of peppermint oil, exercising, and working on mental health, I was able to treat some of my worst symptoms and start to be able to eat 2 meals a day. Then I finally got off birth control. After, I had almost zero symptoms, despite my doctor saying there was no correlation. Today I still follow the same vegan diet that helped me in the very beginning. I still have sensitivities to soy and peanuts, but I don’t feel restricted on my vegan diet.

    Thanks so much for an informative and important video! Really interesting to see the study (bias notwithstanding!) regarding exercise and IBS symptoms, as well as your own anecdotal evidence. I've been vegan for thirty years and circumstances in the last few months have pushed me into much less physical activity, so I'm now wondering if my recent slightly uncomfortable tummy is no coincidence (it's certainly no coincidence that it's not flat any more!) - I'll have to try to crowbar in some time to experiment!

    In terms of general health I'm basically fine - the only drastic thing I've ever noticed since going vegan back in the 80s is I don't have eczema or catarrh any more - they disappeared in about a week of dumping dairy. If it helps anyone, I eat a pretty 'normal' Western diet (as long as curry counts as part of that!), just a veganised one - going vegan was easy even back then, except when I tried to eat out - now it's just too easy for words :)

    I got e-coli in 2014 (from unwashed fruit I got from a farm) I ended up septic in the hospital on intense intravenous antibiotics. The e-coli cleared, but I developed severe chest and stomach pain and IBS. The pain as so persistent, even months after. I was working 9 hour shift 3-4 times a week,and several times I had to leave because it was so painful to stand. The only relief I go was when I laid in the fetal position on my side. The doctors did dozens of tests including blood, stool, colonoscopy, and endoscopy. They discovered that I had around 7 ulcers along my intestines and in my stomach. I ended up seeing a diagnostition, and all she could give me what something to coat my stomach and intestines so that they could heal naturally. I had been a vegetarian since I was 13 (was 21 at the time this occured) and in a last ditch effort, I decided to go vegan. The pain subsided within weeks, and after 2 months, my ulcers were nearly completely healed. I still don't know what the cause was, but veganism saved my life. I was considering death because the pain was too much to bare. I'm alive because of veganism, and have been now for 4 years!

    Eggs are not a "leading killer", dude. They're fucking full of nutrients--if you get the good ones--and are totally healthy if you eat a few per week. Cholesterol is not a fucking poison. It's actually needed by the body to make testosterone and other hormones that keep you healthy.

      @MugenTJ Who is blind to the fact that people in some places need to eat meat or that people are on the verge of starving? If anything, vegans are the same people who actually care about those issues too. It's just that it's hard to justify caging and killing animals just so you can have a burger when you can take a couple of supplements and eat other shit. That's their whole point. I'm not even vegan, btw. I still eat dairy, eggs and meat, but I know it's fucked up at least.

      Dom Trussardi - If you thinking I’m presenting solid arguments to this debate , then I am too childish. It’s purely entertainment to see how ppl suffer thru this! It’s very difficult to point out the obvious to ppl blind to certain facts .
      To your point: yep we are very advanced technologically. Still, You don’t see everyone driving Tesla. I recalled a time my family couldn’t afford animal protein, in a country that didn’t do factory animal farming. It was not living, my friend. You have no idea how happy I feel each time I have a balance meal, now living in the US. Only to see ppl cry about animal suffering etc is very silly.

      @MugenTJ That's a very poor argument. We don't need meat anymore. We have modern technology that can give us everything we need via other foods and supplements.

    The way I see it is everyone tries these unique vegan diets and try new things, but why cant we just eat what we were meant to eat, what our ancestors ate, like plants and insects? I know no one wants insects but why not try em?

    I'm so glad you made this video. Freelee was huge when I was a highly impressionable early teen, especially with the health claims she made (addressing disorders I have) and her misinformation and pseudoscience laden content fucked me up pretty badly, as it did many others. I was too much of a dumbass to do my own research and I know so many who are like I was. You're a great dude.

    I could never go vegan, had gastric bypass so need low carb including whole grain & high fiber. My body treats whole grain just like refined carbs, so I need high protein meals to keep my pancreas from releasing too much insulin

    Lacking of knowledge can be one of the primary problems to this.... I ate alot of fruits sometimes and I'm aware that it is not balanced, I have irritable bowel, it's also like farting alot but I don't really see it as a problem? It's just a sign that you're ingesting too much carbs and they turn into gas in your tummy. Also those fruits has high glycemic index, as it is pure glucose, he needs the right glycemic load. The acne explains his hormonal imbalance due to unstable insulin levels. :)

    Heh. Mental illness is a peculiarity that associates itself with veganism disproportionately.

    People who eat an improper vegan diet then blame their problems on being vegan are misleading others about the need of consuming meat contributing to the deception that meat is part of a healthy diet. She had an unbalanced macro and micro nutrient intake which can also happen when doing a meat diet but nobody talks about the cases where people eat meat and get problems.

    I think the Bonnie did the best for her self and Tim, the key point here is that they did a lot to get better and this was their last option, that tends to happen when you are sick, and you can't point out what's causing it, no matter if you are a vegan or meat eater ... it happens. For them to be transparent, explaining and making videos that still promote a healthy lifestyle is a good way to go. It's obvios that speculating about they habits is all we can do, but let's assume they did all they could. The are not dumb, and they are very conscious people.

      People are split constantly by society. Examples: McDonald's vs burger King, black vs white, Pepsi vs coke, KFC vs Popeyes it's ingrained in our minds constantly. It's called splitting in psychology and yes, I agree, they take it too far.

      You know I think its because alot of people think being vegan I'd extreme. Yet vegans know its not because we are always watching videos about people who eat crazy diets like they only eat fruit or those wack keto diets. Its just the thing is vegans that are very normal they just say no thanks to the meat and choose something other than butter for there bread.

    I believe you should not base your response on google. Sure you want to make people stick to the vegan diet but remember, what works for you may not work for everyone. It seems that all this defense and responses are just based on "MAYBE". Have you seen their medical records? If they were diagnosed by a medical professional, they dont need to defend themselves on why they stopped being vegan.

      Pretty sure his Google searches are just showing studies. And remember something, that people online aren't always honest, many of these vegan RU-cliprs were in it for the money, while many say they have been feeling worse and worse over time they still would sell you vegan products and tell you how amazing they feel on their vegan smoothies. They ex vegans aren't doctors and most of the things they say are 'maybe'. Ex vegans being like "I ate fish once and now I'm healed of everything"

    While I think that Bonny and her boyfriend should do whatever they can to help their health, Mic is NOT bashing them. He is simply trying to defend veganism so completely healthy vegans don't take this special circumstance and suddenly stop scared, thinking "I'm going to get sick!" just because a vegan diet didn't work for a few people. There are plenty of healthy, lifelong vegans who have attributed their health to their diet, so clearly it does work for some people. He's just saying don't give up if it's working for you!
