DOMINICK THOMPSON interview / Tulum Vegan Festival

I’m Dominic Thompson most people know me as Dom’s Thompson Hilma animal rights activist a social entrepreneur I have one of the largest vegan quality companies crazies and weirdos crazies and weirdos you can zoom in on that right there we’re based out in New York our clothes yes this is make or recycle plastic bottles and are getting tired yes our kitchens vegan now you can fill it house off please I’m just feeling your muscles so our clothes are super sis what shot free we could probably say that they’re handmade in New York as well again from recycled plastic bottles other recycled materials organic cotton source from North Carolina it’s a beautiful cut suit yes a lot of t-shirts don’t really yeah we really pride ourselves on that we really do really pride myself on that so yeah and I’m also a multi-sport athlete which is to be translated triathlete I defy looking I do a little bit of boxing you know the all of that type of stuff so yeah so when you run one of those people you never see what they can’t be a jack of all trades and be a must you have to be a master one one yeah you can’t be a jack of all trades is like enjoying that myth no yeah and not just me a lot of people that do triathlons and I think that’s because we said once you do master it a lot of this stuff comes natural to me I’ve always been like a natural athlete but you can never go sit let’s go play travel yeah I get going to gym and outlook for most guys and stuff um naturally that strong because and you add the fact that my plant-based die makes me even stronger but I can’t master triathlon so I’m constantly chasing my own personal goal and my own personal PRS and it’s just so rewarding physically to really put your body through anywhere between a Olympic 25 mile er style type drop onto the hunt in a 40-mile type of Armand yeah I know for myself when I first went me you know I was lifting heavier my recovery time was a lot faster and I was just surprising myself I never loved loved running and all of a sudden I was doing half marathons and one is addicted it’s so addictive I encourage everyone to run look anyway I’m not gonna say I’m not a gym rat that’s a totally different type of an athlete I really encourage you to get out of that gym and I also brings me to that’s a good segue to I want you all to realize too just because someone is a aesthetic looking doesn’t mean that they’re really healthy or functional so just think about that most of these people men and women that look aesthetic they might be pulled on Petes and steroids and other drugs and supplements but they can go out here to run them out they might collapse and that’s not the shame but I’m just saying just really be careful what you buy it to and what you believe it’s you and saying all I have to say is the plant-based way of living it’s the best way with respect to your body and also get out there and run to leave that gym gym it’s great we get out there what was the biggest difference for you after going vegan what was what did you it was the biggest difference that you’ve got nobody yeah my body transformed so I went plant base 16 years ago when I was incarcerated in prison okay yeah yeah and so in there I was about 256 260 pounds and I dropped all the way down to about 187 solid muscle and I was I couldn’t split but I went vegan for the animals for to reset it just this is myself as far as away from any harm so I went plant-based specifically not indeed but plant-based food on say plant-based within prison I had like a 75% vegan diet and 25% octo wish vegetarian dairy and action without whatever they served in this in the system I would eat that but I didn’t know what I knew about the dairy industry i thought i was known animals but vegetarian but i just i was ignorant to know not what was happening there we didn’t we didn’t have the doms of the world we don’t have the what the hell’s in the world we have none of that information 16 yeah we didn’t have social media 16 years ago so the dairy industry I didn’t think was a bad thing I just I just thought the animals like everybody else I’ve been ignorant it’s living on the green land for our dairy and that’s okay and then when I got out the Cisco was able to educate myself that’s nice flip that switch what the fuck Here I am being a vegetarian thing I’m feeling good but they’re raping the cows taking the cab’s away to milk cows away from building industry it’s horrible what they’re going close to three years so you went vegan when you were in prison flat base that’s not completely being I was vegetarian in there yeah yeah but I limited meat directly yeah eliminate meat in prison yeah it’s not one of my recent interview you guys want me to check out the full story check out retro my podcast is up on his it’s one of the top downloads download the podcast is if you guys really want to take the time for two hours just listen to it my entire stores on there what do you want do know kit what’s up what up this is chatting tutorial we just wait what’s your advice if you were to get out of the matrix to get out of the matrix I mean I think in general is probably hard to even get those he even think about that question if you think about I think the real question is what’s the best way for us that’s out of the matrix or out of that community to get other people out of that community those people if you think about it they aren’t really tuned into that type of lifestyle and I think we have to be continued to be walking billboards be assertive and have some empathy that we all been there most of us get our plant-based vegan oh we used to eat meat so we shouldn’t be shaming per se but just educating assertively using yeah for sure so there’s one thing to be a vegan it’s another thing to be a vegan activist absolutely she’s a whole nother level garage I just make feel having gone through first to myself it’s an obligation as a vegan to do that to share the message and to help others and I feel the same way to it because if you think about the history of veganism historically it’s based off the main principles it’s really about compassion animals animal rights just a peaceful lifestyle Pacific everything goes for us here here the ridiculous amount of fillings you filled with respect to your help improving and if good things you don’t for the environment is all bonus sure okay what made you become an activist at the focusing vegan bit of a step up from being a vegan sounds like you’re an activist first I was respect to that’s how that’s what I was known for that’s what happened people so six seven years ago when social media first came out with respecting Instagram a buddy of mine said yo man you should get on Instagram and stop posting your workouts and do all of this and I was ignorant about Instagram I don’t know I was like one of the first people to go on there and I’ve seen all right oh that’s pretty cool but I used it right in and there not only to post my workouts but also to talk by animal rights since day one and that’s how my account through organically out here I love this man of color african-american vegan I wasn’t then I wasn’t the stereotype of what you think of vegan Mel is a pale middle-aged white guy and Here I am I guess that men of color thought of my animal rights and I’m pretty thick I’m not a small guy and Here I am doing endurance races and lifting heavy heavy is luck if you guys don’t follow me and you see how heavy I can look you can’t see you fuck yeah bitching squad and all that you know I never reported it I never recorded it you know but I got out too yeah I did over 400 before ripping at 325 like it’s nothing I think though yeah and then I I did did it I did a 225 for life I didn’t count that one down NFL Combine style I did over like I did like over 40 reps yeah yeah yeah it was I could have kept going I was like fuck I’m doing this without any stops so yeah yeah but yeah yeah sure but even as a kid when I was eight years old I used to push back to my mom she was serving chicken wings and I fell like those little bitty arms that’s like I don’t want this shit it may hurts the fight we used to fight and that’s hard to tell a single mother I grew up without a father single mother that worked three jobs as a nurse you don’t want her food and we was already poured there was but she got smart she introduced me to fish she did have fish dicks all the time and chicken breast solos it was hitting the cartilage and the bones I was okay and then that’s when I made that reconnection in prison had that flashback like trying to figure out why the university has me here and that’s when I’m president I said I got a distance myself it specifically cool all evil from what I used to do which was drug dealing to consuming poison and stuff like that so yeah but just to go back to your question so that’s that’s not my account grew organically because I was just totally opposite of what you see everything Amell was and I’m happy to say I’m one original Trailblazers that started at movement so now you have a lot of men and when they’re both under my impact of it yeah thank you for everything that you’ve done thank you so much for me I don’t see it was just a vegan or an athlete I was as you were talking you’re like this these Trailblazers but more of an angel miscue thank you so much yeah you’re just transformation transformative we all are and that’s what I want to encourage everyone out there you know we can’t I can’t do it alone you guys can’t do it alone you know take your counts off a private go public use those hashtags because you never know that piece of MIL whether you cook in tacos or lasagna it might look a lot better than me you’re talking on those on your presentation and it might be a friend of your your community or someone that’s fallen you check out that hashtag bye wow I could give this a go that looks pretty good so this thing about that you know photos are very powerful one meal can make a difference one plate friends if we can get one person to go vegan because it’s your account or my account we do our job yes and always push your body even your buddy yes push it to the limit there are no Dara Dara well there are certain limits but yes she’s right push it push it push it push and that’s why I tell you guys to get out the gym everyone it’s millions and millions of people in the gym there not everyone’s out in that role running or biking what’s more amazing you are thank you so much for having me appreciate it thank you thank you thank you

Mental disability, Eugenics, and Vegan Politics.

So I just mentioned in my girlfriend that some people including Peter singer openly say they draw an ethical line and they say if human cognition is below this line human cognitive ability human intelligence below this line then human beings can be killed or eliminated why did this come up because we’re talking about veganism in case you think we only talk about veganism on the Internet and I was pointing out that there are people who basically feel that some animals should have animal rights that’s very common it’s very calm there are people who feel that monkeys should have animal rights but not cockroaches there are people who feel dolphins should have animal rights but not goldfish there are a lot of people for the way that there’s some line where it’s like above a certain level of intelligence animals get special privileges and below that they don’t so you asked me yeah I think you just said how do you feel about that you know that humans below a certain level of intelligence right it’s okay to murder them so keeping it all the way real which is my which is my steez you know I have a brother I have a brother who has never spoken a sentence in any language he is so severely retarded he is so severely mentally incapable I’m told he can eat and you know obviously other people have to feed him he’s never had a job sir he’s only I haven’t which was a big controversy in my family it was a huge source of tension between me and my father was why did you never bring me to visit him why did my father himself never visit this brother and why was this brother’s existence kept secret from me until I was in my like mid-20s it was a big it was a big big moral thing because you get on I’m really into just doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do like if you got this son I’m sure like based on what I’ve been told he may not appreciate you visiting him like I think he’s so mentally incapacitated I think my fault this is part of what my father said my father said that he didn’t like being visited that that maybe triple you know the might not appreciate you coming around and talk to him you may not understand a word you’re saying but I do think in terms of duty and honor you know what I don’t know minimum once a year you got to go and visit your own son I’m you know twice a year like I’m not it like you know okay you’re not gonna go every week to talk to somebody who’s not even capable of maybe recognizing you or appreciating your being there you know like I understand you know I can understand that but anyway so in my own family one of my own brothers a guy with a lot of the same DNA as me has so little mental capacity that to what I’ve been told by his by his sister who’s also my sister in case you haven’t guessed yah is that uh but you know one of his sisters fascist mentality has never spoken a word in any language he’s never spoken a sentence you know he can’t he’s severely obviously you know there are animals that have speech they’re animals they have a that have sentences and have complex speech and speak ideas so you know this is if we’re actually playing this game than my own brother that would be a big question yes so who were you’re saying who are you saying it has that opinion someone in the animal rights yes if Peter singers could fit the most farmers and and to my knowledge and unless a natural vegan wants to come out and clear her name she used to you know support Peter singers vision which you’ve recently brought up and I’m not gonna demonize these people they’re a position I disagree with their position but it’s coherent it makes sense like just really briefly but the same thing within within Buddhism generally Buddhists feel that the more an animal resembles human beings the more it has human rights you know I mean so wouldest Street monkeys and elephants your elephants are quite at quite a high level and very often Buddhists will say they don’t give a damn about fish that fish just don’t count now I you know I’m not gonna demonize their normal people you know I mean these are these are most of them are good people some of them are terrible people whatever you know I mean like people live with that that’s a mainstream ethical belief you know I’m not gonna demonize that that’s I mean that’s important to say even because remember I’ve dealt with really extreme politics here in China we’re surrounded by people who are members of the Communist Party and you tell their own children that the mass murder of millions of people was okay under you know the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution and that’s normal here in China and you got to deal with that face to face I mean you can live in a country that’s full of people who support what the Catholic Church did when the Catholic Church killed millions of people these are mainstream beliefs even if they’re wrong you have to be or even if I personally think they’re wrong you know it’s not I can it’s all I can show you some simple factual proof that they’re that I’m right they’re wrong I can just talk through why I see these things the way they do but it’s so silly your question so where where do I stand on that issue now I just respond to say look let’s raise the stakes let’s talk about my own brother let’s put a human face on it right now why is my brother alive given that he was less abandoned by his own father because the Canadian taxpayer we have a system in Canada which is why the streets of Canada are not filled with mentally impaired beckers which they are in some countries like Laos like in Laos you get a sense of how many retarded people there are because you see them on the street and in Canada you don’t you know in in Cambodia get a sense of how many physical cripples there are the people with one leg because you see them on the street you know I mean in Canada we have a wealthy enough country to support an army of mentally disabled people I think the ethical decision you’re making is fundamentally very different in Canada than it is in Laos or Cambodia that is my honest answer you know what I mean I don’t think every country has the luxury the candidate has now I think in a country again I think it should be democratic and I think it should be transparent you know I don’t think it should be in a black box of issues nobody’s allowed to debate but I do think generally speaking in a country like Canada if you have that debate you’re gonna make rational reasonable choices I mean you give an example one of the issues is so if you have these people who are severely mentally disabled probably you cannot take care of them close to the home of their own parents probably do it decentralizes so maybe in every province you have one or two centers of special care for severely disabled people and then if when the parents want to visit or though other relatives or friends want to visit they have to drive a long way because Canada is a really big country now the Netherlands doesn’t have that problem Denmark doesn’t no offence Netherlands is just not that big but in Canada you could have people who are separated from their children if they if they sign them up for this kind of care but long as it is that is that is a rational budgetary problem where you say well we can’t have five hundred centres don’t the disabled maybe you can maybe you can have five hundred but you can’t have 600 whatever the number is you know you’ve got to make responsible decisions of that also to be a democratic way I mean can I was mentioned you we still have controversies about women getting breast augmentation getting you know silicone breast implants paid for by tax payers part of democracy is drawing quite a bit like for psychological reasons because their psychiatrist fills it a form saying it’ll help raise her self-esteem this kind of thing and getting it paid for by taxpayers now you know different people draw the line at different places but sure I mean so you know part of my answer is I’m actually comfortable with dealing with those questions in a democratic way democracy is not perfect there are lots of examples of issues democracies can’t deal with and deal with really really badly you know John Stuart Mill his big concern was about the majority ruthlessly oppressing the minority and that is a problem when you look at today we’re just looking at Iraq when you look at countries where the majority of people may be Muslim the majority people may be Muslim fundamentalist what kind of government what quality of governance are they going to provide for atheists for Christians for Jews for other minorities I mean in Iraq there was the case of the Yazidis another heart to define religious and ethnic minority within Iraq there are problems with the majority both minority but it’s an interesting counterpoint to note that a lot of the time you have a totally helpless minority of people like mentally disabled people they have no ability to form a union or have lawyers you don’t whoa bargaining on their behalf or something they have no ability to equal the lobby government or play the games other vocal noorie’s my too but I can really give credit democracy is good at some things bad at others the sewage treatment democracy does not handle super very well you know you can make an argument that maybe dictatorships are better at dealing with sewage treatment you know it is funny the way those things go but you know I think that’s actually a very positive thing and can done other other wealthy western counties are positive example that do I think though I mean what I’ve lived in Laos I’ve lived in Cambodia I’ve been involved you know in my small way and humanitarian work in politics and everything there and those are very different art decisions you have to make and you know I have a remember saw one documentary about dealing with mentally disabled in insane people people quite likely had schizophrenia in some poverty-stricken areas of Africa I remember a documentary that looked at it and you know then you couldn’t you get into very different very hard questions yeah yeah that’s your question yeah yeah I think it’s just a case-by-case basis like what exactly the disability level is right yeah I mean it is good that in civilized society is like in Canada you get you can pay for the treatment of these people for their whole lives but that’s what we do yep and and somebody has to draw the line to Mona to somebody else to said how are you actually gonna deliver those services and but I just mentioned my approach here again is not a rights-based approach you know my approach I think a credit come I would say it’s just deontological the question is what can we do for them how are we gonna decide to do what we’re gonna do for them and you know how do we but it’s just about an ethic of care and the most fundamental idea here is doing the best you can and recognizing that in a third-world poverty stricken post world country like Laos the answer of doing the best you can may be may be totally different I read I don’t know if ever mention this to you there was a heartrending account of a young girl who was sold into sex slavery in Laos and came back with her mind completely broken and the conditions that were described that she was living in F XI was returned to her family her family had had a wooden addict probably the house was wood you know I can I can imagine ever living allows the type of house this was so in the upper story they chained her to the wooden post that supported the the wall and what this article described was all day you know with no particular sleeping schedule she would alternate between lying on the floor sleeping passed out curled up in the fetal position screaming and shakin constantly screaming and shaking and running in a straight line you know bovis is pulling on her chain but running as if trying to escape that was how she responded to the experience of being sold into sex slavery and obviously rape repeatedly what have you and the other thing that’s that’s eerie about this if you’ve ever done research on this this area you can interview not dozens but hundreds of young women who went into prostitution at the same age under the same conditions and who even worked with the same pimps because the same pimps work with how do at the same brothel you know what I mean and didn’t respond to the experience in that way at all you know but this this young woman totally mentally collapsed and the question was what can we as lotion society zap our researcher what can we do for this young woman keeping her chained to a wall chained to a post this is not a great solution putting her into a hospital in Laos may be worse let me say if you go to the hospital you know I mean like it’s not I mean what what can we do with cases of extreme mental disability or extreme trauma or extreme insanity mental incapacity without you those are those are really hard questions and I don’t think the Communist Party allows answers but it’s a part of the role of democracy again I don’t see this in a human rights perspective I see it in okay so you have the demos come together and trying to make sober decisions of okay what is the best we can do how we how are we gonna do this and you know in Canada we do have some very generous programs you can see programs about disabled people playing ice hockey you know getting disabled people out and plague them on the ice and you know they can’t wear skates cuz they’ll get you know that’s too dangerous but you know where you give them special shoes and they can shuffle them out of the ice and you have a whole bunch of D poultry there are some there are some very generous things we can do but you know between that and you know actually having someone chained to a wall you know a metal and metal and wood and you know I mean obviously this whole conversation happens in the shadow of Adolf Hitler the reality is the the eugenic policies that they don’t feel they’re engaged in of you know actually exterminating mentally sable people there’s a very interesting history that how that how that came about how the decisions were made I think I think that was the sobering moment for Western civilization to look and say okay either we’re going down this eugenics path or you know or what what does it mean to take responsibility for the fact that in any given society a certain percentage of people are never going to be able to contribute there never be able to hold a job and pay taxes and we got to look at our amassed wealth as taxpayers and just ask ourselves what can we do for them expecting nothing in return and again to keep it all the way real you know there’s also a sense in which that’s not altruism because there’s a sense in which we don’t want to see those people on the street we don’t want to see them begging on the street corners and that is indeed partly for our sake not for their say well some do I mean some do I think I think you know a Peter Singer and someone that’s that’s a real question some do Peter Singer is Pro murder he says if you don’t reach a certain target oh I’m certain with my brother he would support murdering my brother yeah keeping it all the way real about us yeah

Date Night Makeup // Vegan & Cruelty-Free //

sorry I really dislike that voice that’s better okay hello everyone my name is Lisa I’m the bait vegan because that Vietnam Egan and today it’s gonna be a slightly different video because Valentine’s Day is coming up and I thought I’d show you how I do my makeup for Valentine’s Day with cruelty free and vegan makeup and I’m also partnering up with madam glam to give a little giveaway today this video isn’t sponsored but they did send me lipsticks and they want to give away some lipsticks to you guys so I love love love love love love their lipsticks like I don’t think you guys understand how much I love their lipsticks the only thing is I wish they had more colors but they’re not making any more colors than they have right now some of you might have seen the collab that I did with the coral channel where they DIY this whole lighting set up vanity type thing for me I’ll leave a link for the video in the corner I guess it’s the mirrors messing it it’s in one of the corners because I’m shooting a mirror so it’s like reversed but then it’s also it’s just very good I’m just very confused so yeah I’m gonna do my makeup for a typical like date night look let’s get into at my makeup so I’ve written down my skincare after I took a shower I showed off with some rose water toner and then I use this vitamin E essence from the body shop it feels kind of like tackier and like my skincare kind of sinks deeper into my skin afterwards and then for my mornings I also use this vitamin C constitutive serum and then this body shop the vitamin C glow protection first thing I’m gonna do is my eyebrows so I use the NYX precision brow pencil and I also use this mirror to like help me be closer cuz like this mirror is like nice and big but not close enough I gotta see the detail and also if you guys are wondering what the heck is going on with all these spots on my face I’ve been eating like crap lately of eating a lot of processed foods and oil and junk and not a lot of produce so and not drinking a lot a lot of water it’s just my skin but concealer will help about in a moment so time to do my eyebrows all right so then I feather it out with the back of the spoolie thing on the back of the eyebrow pencil thing really precise descriptions Lisa you’re doing great also if you’re wondering why I’m wearing like a headband it’s just to keep the whispies out of my out of my way this is like a Aluna headband that I got from my Sailor Moon convention cuz you know me I love Sailor Moon I showed you guys like kind of in my vanity here I have like a bunch of these like bento box sort of things I’m just gonna pull them out I’m not gonna go into this entire makeup collection this is Mike my lipstick hoard although I do have some concealers in here that don’t actually belong in here I’m not gonna go through all this today unless you guys want me to go through my entire lipstick collection but we’re just gonna like focus on one I’m actually gonna put on my face first things first concealer I discovered this cover FX concealer this is gonna come up in a wedding vlog soon ish it’s like probably gonna be in three wedding blogs so hopefully I’ll be a lot faster with the wedding vlog stuff soon so I’m just applying some concealer over my spots if I knew more about color theory I could color correct it but I don’t oh my acne now covered up I do have a concealer sponge but I haven’t washed it in a while so I’m not gonna use it maybe sees my finger so don’t mind me as I cut out my kids [Music] okay I still look a little bananas that’s okay this is just the bottom layer I don’t do the whole triangle lighting thing contour thing properly I don’t know I just like looks kind of crazy on me maybe if like I did it properly but like every time I do it I look like really cakey so I just don’t do it anyway that’s the base I’m going to use this probably a little too old when I resent pure second skin foundation this is like an oil-based one so like my skin you really likes this because my skin is like combo oily dry cuz sometimes my skin’s like super super super oily and then sometimes it’s super super super dry right now it’s kind of dry which is I’m not surprised based on all the acne that I’m having in the lack of water I’ve been drinking you know in light of that I think I’m gonna use my Beauty Blender and the oil based on me should probably have this like for two years maybe I don’t know it’s probably expired but because it’s not like a thing that I put on my face like it doesn’t like directly touch my face I’m not really worried about it being like full of bacteria you know I’m saying so I just did need a beauty [Music] I ended up moving a lot of my concealer off of my face with a Beauty Blender so I’m just gonna go back and put in some more it’ll look kind of ghostly right now but you know what that’s okay sorry cuz we started with some lip I’ll mark already but my lips are feeling kind of dry that’s just the David’s T lip balm yeah it’s actually a via game which is really cool and I just like the way it feels it like disappears not like immediately but like relatively quickly doesn’t like steak goopy on your lips okay foundation is done I’m gonna add some color back into my face this is the pixie bronzer in the shade summertime there’s not a lot of shades there picks you could definitely improve their shade range but you know this is drugstore stuff that I found that I was like hey I like this I just use a sigma extreme structure contour fo for brush and I know I decided to use that voice we’re just gonna roll with it and like my face is just really big so I’m just gonna add some to this side so there’s like some false shadow that’s little god that’s too much oh no oh no your girl messed up can you talk not a beauty guru bronzer applied I think I’m gonna go with the cream blush today but I also like this baked Milani blush that I have I have to I have Dulce pink and very I’m alright why am I saying it like this so I’m just gonna use this between the sheets super shock cheek from colour-pop this one’s actually probably my favorite blush I’m probably doing this so wrong no blush added I was actually studying like the way that Asian culture applies makeup and they like their blush placement is like so interesting I always do my makeup kind of more westernized because I’m Western but I want to like learn how to do it more Asian so I can look more aged in blush apply so I have this Carli bybel palette you guys have seen this before vegan cruelty free I’ve hit pan on one of the shades because I really like it but yeah I’m gonna use the rose gold one I’m going to use the high cheekbone highlighter fo3 brush by Sigma so I have this no filter setting powder from colour-pop it’s okay it’s the banana one I don’t like hate it I don’t love it so I’m just gonna put it underneath my eyes and just like set my whole face with it cuz I don’t know I don’t know what I’m doing the thing is I watch actual beauty gurus and like I see the technique that they apply their makeup and but then I’m like do I want to do that though like I know that’s the way you’re supposed to do it but sit now it’s time to do my eye makeup so I have this makeup geek palette that I like sort of filled out with a bunch of other stuff I have makeup geek pans in here but I also have some color pop pans in here as well these eight here or all makeup geek this one’s makeup geek and then this one’s makeup geek and then the rest geez for or color pop and this one’s color problem so these two blush pans are also makeup geek and then this one is color pop this is actually supposed to be a bronzer but when I got it it had like highlighter sort of like Sheen to it I don’t really love it so I just kind of have it but I don’t know what to do with it cuz it’s like it’s not really quite dark enough to be bronzer and it’s too dark to be a highlighter it’s just like really awkward so sometimes I use it on my eyes but I don’t know it’s just weird as you can tell I lean towards like purpley brownie blushy looking ilex I wish I could experiment more with other stuff but I just I don’t have the skills they just go it to fake sale this is probably like my favorite blush powder that was way too much Lisa so we’re just gonna you know what we’re just gonna blend this out because I went a little too – ham on that and I’m using this furless ppb one blending brush so I have one monolid and one double it’s this is a double it I this is the Monell it and I even if I apply the same amount of makeup to both it looks way different on be each eye so this one it looks like I applied a lot less and this one I went a little too high so I’m done messed up I got a I got a wipe away some of that you know then I’m gonna go in with a darker shade with my I don’t even know what this brush is called it’s like a it’s one from BH Cosmetics it says number six I don’t know what that means it’s just like an angled fluffy creasing brush I don’t know I’m not gonna go into cabin fever like my second favorite shade from the makeup geek palette I’m not gonna make that mistake again I’m also gonna get some on my bottom lash lid and then it looks a little crazy so I’m gonna blend down what looks alright probably right my makeup boys looks nicer with this eye the model lid just I never know how to actually put on makeup on it and then I have this like one patch of skin that just like absorbs color but then doesn’t blend out it’s just like if you like put anything on there it’s like hi I’m patchy I’m gonna add some eyeliner now this is the Stila of waterproof liquid eye thing oh I made mistake I think I just painted my eye nice there’s like a line from my eyeball up until my eyelid huh I think there’s just like a black line on my contact now I’m beautiful I kind of messed up the inside inner corner but you know what just like don’t look at it that’s gonna bother me actually so I’m going to choose my Marcel instant eye makeup remover I’m gonna try and fix that Marquart what a q-tip just take off the aisle in here that I messed up that looks slightly better okay eyeliner is like kind of fixed again with some double ended versus the monolid I have to put on like more makeup on this one to show up than this one and it’s trying to fill in that like one kind of bald patch that I wiped makeup off on and then I thought mascara so I have the legendary lashes a volume two mascara from Charlotte Tilbury and I really like this eyelash stuff mascara that’s what it’s called I don’t curl my eyelashes because I’m lazy and I wait for that to dry otherwise if I can link I scare everywhere now time for the lips have been really diggin lipstick lately for today I’m gonna use I don’t know which one I’m gonna use I’m gonna swatch them for you for funsies also so you can see how certain shades look on me so with the giveaway with madam glam they’re giving away one matte and one velvet though I have to Velvets to max so I can swatch them for you so I’ll do the velvet ones first the top one is velvet red queen fig and then conspiracy and then cherry wine I really like the matte ones the velvet ones they don’t stay on my lips quite as well they are bullet lipstick so like they’ll rub off they’re not like kiss proof or whatever like you’ll get transfer pretty much everywhere especially because sometimes I like to wear lip gloss on top of them so like it’s like extra transferee but that’s just me but I really like the darker like the more purpley shaded ones and like I thought I wouldn’t like the warmer shades because normally my skin doesn’t really go well with the warm shades but these ones are actually not too bad they’re not too orange so I really actually like all four colors so I think I might go for the cherry wine one that’s probably my favorite one out of the four every time I email them I like thank them to make more but they’re not making any other shades right now coz madam glam is like a nail polish company I have a bunch of their gel polishes because they’re cruelty free and vegan and I like the gel polishes better than a lot of like the regular nail polishes they’ve like stay on my nails a little a lot longer and I have one of those like UV light things cuz you know I’m Vietnamese and my family does nail stuff but I can do that another video if you guys want they actually sent me some nail polishes as well and they’re like different shades and I normally would have picked those are the lipsticks if you guys want to enter the giveaway all you have to do is subscribe to their Channel you might need to make your subscriptions like public so that they can check that you’ve actually subscribed for they the giveaway and yeah list out the two sheets that you would like if you won the giveaway I really love the packaging on these lipsticks too they’re just like super satisfying and like luxurious bullet lipstick things if that makes any sense I just like it like feel so like luxurious it anyway so I’m going to use this color pop and lippie pencil in the shade oh I say puts on like fish but no it’s just poison it’s like pretty janky it kind of falls out a little bit so that’s fine I’m gonna use a mirror again to make sure I apply this properly I struggle a lot with putting on lipstick because my lips don’t have a very clear start and end point if that makes sense where my lips end and the lip shade ends the color of my lips ends are not the same so it’s like do I color the part where my lips end or where the lip shade ends I end up doing where the lip shade ends because if I do the full lip it looks like I have like a clown face then I put on some lipstick so yeah this is the matte cherry wine I find that this is like my favorite lipstick feeling there’s other lipsticks that like they feel really dry or like you can feel them like sucking out the moisture of your lips but I don’t find that happens with a lot of white ones but yeah this is generally the makeup look that I do whenever I’m feeling like a date night so I’m gonna set it with my all-nighter Urban Decay settings ready I’ll let that dry and that we good that’s it this is this is the look some of you are asking me for like an updated get ready with me or like what my general go-to for makeup is depending on like how my skin is I’ll switch between the bare minerals powder foundation or the second skin foundation from 100% pure I also have a fenty Beauty one but that I usually only wear when my skin’s like really oily cuz that’s it’s a mattifying foundation and my skin does not like that when it’s dry it gets like really patchy so I have like a couple dry spots here that even this oil-based one is like let’s get so happy with I’ll list out all the makeup that I use down below and also if you want other makeup content I’ll link to channels that I use all the time down below logical harmony which I use their website all the time to check whether or not things are cruelty free vegan if they’re owned by parent company that is or isn’t cruelty free you have to sort of decide for your own if like where you draw the line in terms of makeup and then Rianne from wife life or Rihanna hy her branding is like kind of different depending on where you go like on Instagram choose wife life but on it YouTube it’s rien H Y if you want to check out her channel as well she does all vegan the cruelty free makeup and she doesn’t like a little bit more like luxurious makeup looks I’m very jealous of her bottom eyelashes I had like a total of five bottom eyelashes per eye they’re not as like cute and fluffy like hers are like I just Asians just don’t have as many eyelashes white folks do that’s just like we just have fewer eyelashes anyway that’s a lot of rambling I’m gonna stop now and I hope you guys enjoyed this video I know this is not food content I’m gonna be coming out with more food content soon but you know experimenting with

Weekly Q&A – Fasting Plateaus | Vegan Keto | Foods for Autophagy

it’s that time of the week again where I’m gonna answer your questions now if you’re new to this channel or you haven’t seen these kind of videos before what I do is I take questions and comments that have come in from previous videos and I allocate all my responses to a video so dedicate an entire video just to answering comments and questions now obviously I can’t answer everyone’s comments so I try to cherry-pick as many as I can I try to rotate through so I’m not hitting the same people over and over as well so I’ve got a couple of weeks where the videos to go through here because we had the holiday so I missed a week so let’s go ahead and get right into it we’re gonna start with the video how to boost auto fiji without fasting this was a super cool video it’s a video talking about how using reishi mushroom and how using a couple things can actually improve Auto Fuji and induce autophagy even when you’re not fasting so really cool stuff so let’s get right to the questions Vasilis Tana says Thomas what about putting that mushroom powder in a large cup of green tea instead of playing hot water yes you can definitely use lion’s mane reishi any of those mushroom powders along with green tea you don’t have to just mix them in water totally good to go me LAN kook buss says does drinking plain tea count as h2o hydration needed for the day when fasting yes it does so what I usually say is if you’re gonna consume tea you’re gonna want to just deduct about 20 percent of the water that you consume so if you consume misses do ounces to make it simple a hundred ounces of water or I’m sorry if you consume the hundred ounces of tea then you’d want to count that as 80 ounces of water now with coffee I cut it in half okay you’re still getting water but you’re gonna lose a lot of it cuz the diuretic effect if you consumed a hundred ounces of coffee please don’t you would end up counting 50 ounces of water okay the next video was fast fat versus slow fat the speed of fat digestion this whole video was talking about how fats need to sort of have a glycemic index like we should count that because fats are digested slower or the digested faster and they give us energy faster or slower just like high glycemic versus low glycemic carbs so I encourage people to look at them differently definitely recommend you check that video out Nico críticos says hey Thomas quick question how does the antioxidant properties of fasting compared to antioxidants and foods so there’s not really antioxidant properties of fasting it’s more the Papaji effect so where the cells actually recycle so the difference like cells recycle their actual working parts during fasting where as antioxidant is really like the fact of fighting off oxidative damage like cellular waste so slightly different cellular waste removal reverses cell recycling and efficiency building is really best way I can put it nick new UN says question some people who don’t have a gall bladder meaning don’t have bile salt can’t break down triglycerides into micelles do those triglycerides or fat gets stored as fat or get dumped out of the body in the stool good question actually people that don’t have a gall bladder still produce bile salts the bile salts are produced by your liver the gallbladder is just a storage mechanism form so people that don’t have a gall bladder just have a harder time they don’t have it readily available their liver actually has to produce it on demand so you still have the bile salts but they answer your question any excess fat is just usually put through the stool it’s usually not stored that gall bladder doesn’t affect you actually storing fat Stephanie a Costa says what about the fats that we have stored to be used is it broken down the same way is it a long chain triglyceride good question so they’re broken down into free fatty acids which are individual fatty acids so when they’re in their storage form they’re different but once they’re mobilized and used then there’s there they’re not even short chains they’re just free fatty acids so basically have long-chain fatty acids medium chain fatty acids short chain fatty acids and then you have just fatty acids so the short chains are just short chains of fatty acids the medium chains are medium chains of fatty acids so fatty acids are the singular so that’s basically what we’re after Tamra Townsend says should we be should we avoid rapid fats in your bedtime and aim for longer fats or aim to have most of our fats earlier in the day no it doesn’t really matter but I would actually say have the rapid fats actually it’s not like it’s affecting your blood sugar the rapid fats actually going to digest faster therefore you’re gonna end up hitting that fasted state faster effectively if you have a longer digesting fat then it’s going to take longer to get through your system and your fasting window it ultimately becomes shorter next video was three ways to break intermittent fasting plateaus this was three ways that you could like totally get through these plateaus that you when you’re fasting when you’re fasting we all reach these points where we’re just not losing weight anymore so I wanted to break down three surefire ways and honestly is a great video if you are an intermittent faster and you have not seen that video iya 100% promise you you will get something out of that please go check it out the first question comes from Baris Carol our he says really enjoying your videos man what about let’s say keeping 18 6 but changing eating hours throughout the week like some days eating 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. other days 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. totally I encourage you to switch it up it makes it so your body doesn’t just get super adjusted to something so absolutely just try to have a day in between so you can recycle and you’re back on track liliane loan skew says so do you recommend applying all three of these techniques at the same time meaning the two weeks that I’m taking off standard if’ should be the same weeks where I do the Kido bulk and shift workouts or should I be stacking enough to the other I would say you don’t want to necessarily stack your all them but I would try to be stacking two at a time the reason I don’t want you to stack all of them is simply because then you don’t know which ones working keep something in your pocket keep something in your arsenal so go one at a time let that do the trick and then see if you hit another plateau and then implement another one don’t use all your bag of tricks all at once Tyrone says when you still get the same fat burning effect working out fasted with ten grams of BCAAs I feel like I can only worked out with BCAAs otherwise I feel burnout without it I know BCA’s technically break my fast but theoretically with this improving my performance heavily without actually consuming any calories wouldn’t I still get much better results very good point you see that’s the given the take right if you perform better and your net net burning more calories because you have more power from your BCAAs then yeah at the end of the day it’s a win right I’m a logical guy like I’m not just gonna be stuck in my ways and say no BCAAs what’s interesting is that BCAAs I would actually say are somewhat okay during your training window what I don’t want you to be doing is consuming BCAAs at any time just to consume BCAAs throughout you’re fast you see what happens is aminos trigger mTOR mTOR is the opposite of etapa JEE anyway so what’s happening is when you’re working out you’re already triggering mTOR so you might as well just have your aminos then – because you’re gonna trigger mTOR which is going to turn off on top of you to begin with so if you’re going to have BCAAs during your workouts the time Michael Pan Cody says hi Thomas thanks for the video just a question how often should you take these two-week breaks whenever you need them hit them when you start to hit a plateau when you go a week without changing a single tenth of a pound implement one next video was how I tie my carbs for fat loss this was an interesting video obviously this implies that I’m not in Quito all the time which is true I’m not so it talks about when I structure my carbs mainly allocating them towards the evening time if you’re interested in this you should go back and watch the whole video because the questions come from first one comes from oMG or baby how much protein and fat should we be eating around dinnertime I know that you said this is the best time to put in carbs so I’m guessing a moderate to high amount but still not an I need a hundred percent of your daily value but I’m confusing the protein of fat amount if I had to guess I would say high protein and low fat ding-ding-ding you actually nailed it yeah you want to keep the fat nice and low because you’re having the carbs in the equation moderate amounts of protein bin tip says what about if you’re doing exercise in the morning so if you’re exercising in the morning then you’re just going to want to actually nothing’s gonna change you’re still gonna allocate your carbs in the evening time nothing really changes there Robert church Meyer says could you please explain carb timing with intermittent fasting for muscle growth I know you said before to break a fast with a small serving of high glycemic carbs or spike insulin but now I’m curious about the rest of the day what are your thoughts on using PHP for energy first off bhp for energy no throw that stuff away you don’t need it as far as carb timing for muscle growth it’s still the same you’re gonna break your fast with a little bit of bone broth in the first real solid actual food you have something high glycemic and in the next meal after that moderate glycemic carbs along with your protein and low fat next meal after that low carb moderate protein higher fat okay next week’s questions this is a week of twelve thirty one first video is why carbs are raising your blood pressure and why everyone punishes salt okay this video was awesome flipped everything on its head people think that salt is why your blood pressure goes up nonsense is not the case there was like a couple studies that showed that it’s more about the carbohydrates and mainly the sugar yeah really interesting stuff you have to go check that video out David Ray says do you recommend electrolyte supplements like salt sticks etc is Powerade zero okay should I stick the lemon water and pink Himalayan salt go for like Redman real salt that stuff is a really really solid very diverse mineral profile super good electrolytes the main mineral you want is going to be magnesium anyway another company that has a good magnesium is jigsaw magnesium I’m on their advisory board they have an electrolyte that’s magnesium based mary-jane chamber says what are the best sources of Lokar potassium I’m not eating sweet potatoes or bananas yeah low carb potassium honestly meat believe it or not so like chicken and beef and sound like that you’re gonna have a lot of potassium in that people always overlook that also bok choy Swiss chard really high sarah wind muller says hi Thomas as for the soy protein aren’t they not all bad for you isn’t fermented soy like tempeh and natto and me so much healthier for you than tofu are the fermented soy like miso soup miso and tempeh still a phytoestrogen yeah there’s still a phytoestrogen but you are right if they’re organic non-gmo and they’re fermented some of the estrogens are gone so you’re still not gonna want to have them all the time but yeah in moderation absolutely fine in fact I am a fan of tempeh I just try not to consume it all the time next one was vegan keto it’s easier than you think this video was breaking down why the vegan keto diet is not that hard it actually lends itself perfectly and too much to explain right here and I don’t want to waste everyone’s time but if you’re interested at all in like doing a vegan keto even for a couple of days watch that video in February I’m going to do a vegan keto challenge where I’m gonna go vegan keto for two weeks I’m not gonna plan on staying vegan keto but I want to do it for two weeks I want to see how I feel and I want to also prove that it’s not that hard to do so Cass says thoughts on hemp protein and proteins good solid complete protein I just prefer pea protein it’s a lot more evidence with it my creative agent says one question on the top of go mega six and omega-3 conversion rates that omega-6 inhibits omega-3 intake my understanding is that omega-6 and omega-3 both rely on the same enzymes and for that reason to a much of a go six is bad if that’s true would it be sufficient to separate consumption of omega-3 and omega-6 to some extent very good point and you are correct enzymes so basically they compete the enzymes they compete for the same enzyme so the enzymes that break down omega-6 and the same enzymes that break down omega-3s so when we consume them basically if we have too much omega-6 which you almost always do those enzymes are preoccupied and don’t get to breakdown omega-3 so that’s why when we get out of ratio it exponentially just goes down a bad direction so your question actually raises a lot of interesting thought hard parties were always metabolizing we’re not just digesting it’s not enzymes in the sense of the enzymes that are breaking it down in our stomach its enzymatic pathways enzymatic processes happening at the cellular level which we always have a degree of it so separating them out timing wise isn’t gonna do a whole lot the fit vegan chicks kitchen says our chickpeas okay on a keto vegan diet in small amounts they do have a good amount of carbs so I would say no more than like a quarter to a half-cup one to two times per day Bharath says why are you not a big fan of way his whey protein as nutritious list nutrition less as the pasteurized milk that’s obtained from the heart with whey proteins is just inflammatory that’s the thing I don’t like about it pea protein is cleaner in my opinion and it doesn’t spike your insulin quite as much next video was three ways to reverse adrenal fatigue okay very simply put it was how to control your cortisol and to fight back against adrenal fatigue Erin Forrest says can real salt work too instead of Himalayan salt yeah Redmond real salt the same type that I mentioned just previously Elizabeth Coker says I have organic ashwagandha root powder would this do the same as a pill form absolutely alright sorry that was a quick one there but next video and the last one is the top three mistakes people make when breaking a fast super good topic very well received already has close to a hundred thousand views like really quick blew up fast the whole idea of this video is to just say what people usually do when they break a fast and why a lot of times it’s not the way to go so Patricia beachin says so what do you break your eighteen six fast with if you’re in Quito examples please I rotated up but honestly you can go two ways you can go either just the fat direction or just the protein direction so with me it’s gonna be simple it’s gonna be like bone broth with some coconut oil dissolved into it melted into it okay or it’s gonna be just a lean protein with no fat in at all so it’s gonna be like maybe a well in this case usually a pea protein shake something plant-based is a little bit easier to break down in that case and then I move into the meats later on Jack Buster says Thomas in other videos you talked about breaking your facet bone broth can I use bone broth protein powder yes and no if it’s just the dehydrated bone broth or like that’s fine but a lot of times they add other stuff like collagen and other multi decsions and stuff in there just be careful just try to get it pure Emily says breaking a fast with homemade kefir is that good or bad if you can make water kefir then yes that’s good I would not go with milk kefir Kieffer’s like from coconut water stuff like that where the sugars ferment that will work but you don’t go for the milk one the dairies is hard on your system Nathan says Thomas does this apply to someone doing one meal a day unfortunately not it’s a whole different that’s why I’m not the biggest fan of one meal a day it’s because you load your digestive system really quick I know the guy fledged Fitness out there Edward he’s probably not a big fan of me talking about that I’m not anti Oh Matt I just I find some issues with it for my digestion standpoint so I just don’t know if that’s the route you want to go long-term but I would still say start your meal with something light and then maybe wait 5 or 10 minutes and then consume the rest of your meal just to at least get a little bit of a soft effect the Joe champ says what bulletproof coffee count is that first small meal which breaks the fast you could but it’s pretty acidic with coffee so go for a low acid coffee and try to keep it dairy out of it so go with maybe like the if you would go get slow dairy lower like it’s dairy but it’s lower like in terms of the metabolic effect and the lactose and everything like that and coconut oil MCT oil be fine just try not to go for the butter in there and if you can go for tea and of course remember you’re gonna have caffeine in it so if you’re trying to sleep you don’t to be having that caffeine within like six eight hours of your bedtime alright that sums it up I know it was a lengthy one I will see you guys in the next content answering video if you have any other types of video ideas or anything like that coming down in the comment section to guys soon

The Forest Green Rovers Are The World’s Only Vegan Football Team (HBO)

Talk about British football culture an environmental conscientiousness probably isn’t the first trait that springs to mind but try telling that to Forest Green Rovers the aptly named Club has been based in a tiny English village for a hundred and twenty nine years for the last eight they’ve been owned by wind power tycoon Dale Vince who also owns a multi-million dollar green energy company eco tricity with his investment the Rovers have won a place in England’s professional leagues for the first time they’ve also become the greenest sports team in the world and they’re completely vegan every year we reckon about 20% of all of the electricity we use comes from our own solar panels and the rest we bring in from the grid using our own windmills and solar panels in other parts of the country so we’re on absent powered by green electricity and about 20% of it is made here on-site well I would occasionally call myself a hippie I would say more than anything else if you’re looking for a label I’m an environmentalist sometimes people call me a businessman Erdem like that I think they’re smartly insulting we’ve got a series of drains dug across the pitch and we collect the water that flows on it and we pump it up into a big tank up in the corner there and put it back on the pitch lasers like a you know motorcycle one of the things we’ve done is to take the club vegan and we are described often as the world’s first or any vegan Football Club and we did it for the environment reasons primarily but of course there are human health reasons and animal welfare issues behind to drive to veganism as well and and I personally support all of those first thing you did was stop the serving and red meat and that went down you could say like a lead balloon with some people it was it was a bit shocking bit controversial media called a red meat ban to our players we said look this is a performance issue serious athletes then he read me and they took that on board we’ve done really well last season and we’re on you can diet around the club so this year is all about staying in the league and we’re doing a face over when you first sign here you hear a lot of things about the club and how its run takes you a while to get used to X is completely different to any other football club but when you’re here you really take it on board and you really understand what he’s trying to do at the end of the day they’re trying to save the world two seasons ago now we just took the cows milk away you know and it was a little bit hard for a couple of people you know what are we gonna do you know but you know push comes to shove I say we’ll look to have a beer you know are you trying to steal my limelight have you put the timer on fantastic so what we got here katsu curry pickled vegetables and pickled ginger it’s not typical football food and actually there were there was some resistance and naturally it’s changed but sales have gone up people have realized actually they’re not being punished you don’t get punished good for you given food it’s actually a celebration of what we’ve got look at the size that fire out there you don’t need four is green hungry well I think the classic stereotype of a football fan in England is it’s going to be somebody that doesn’t eat healthy food perhaps isn’t the most progressive in their outlook I don’t think it’s actually holds to like most stereotypes and if you look at our fans talk to our fans you find it actually once they’re introduced to these ideas around the environment they’re very keen to pick them up and run with them which is what our fans have been doing oh it’s great because we’ve been coming up about three or four seasons now and all of a sudden people know us for the vegetarian cycling the club so it’s great for us club this more to be talked about around the world is brilliant football has given us a massive platform and dreamt of really to talk to people all around the world we’ve got fan clubs springing up in so many different countries of the world is quite incredible and these are people that aren’t necessarily football fans but they are people that are concerned by the environment and are adopting for our screen as a football club because what we stand for off the pitch [Applause] you you
