Why the Hunzas Live so Long (Part I) – Loren Lockman, Tanglewood Wellness Center

So what is it that has these people living such long lives let’s look at the honza’s okay the hunters are interesting because they live at high elevation you know they live up in the the somewhere of the the base of the Himalayas right high in the mountains and they grow fruit in the winter in the summertime in the summertime they have apricots which they’re actually famous for the huns apricots they grow other stone fruits they probably have cherries and apples things like that but it’s a relatively short growing season and once it’s over there you know they don’t have those things they I think they store what they can for the rest of the year because most of the year they can’t grow anything they live in an elevation where there’s no trees they don’t have firewood they don’t have natural gas they don’t have a propane they don’t have coal they don’t they don’t have access to these things so they eat very little cooked food they’ve never eaten much cooked food because they simply don’t have the resources to cook or never did in the past again I don’t know what they’re doing now they live in a place where the air is pure where they get plenty of sunlight because almost everyone is involved in some kind of physical labor okay there are no office jobs right there’s no bank there’s no there’s no fast-food restaurants everyone lives in nature and they grow their own food and they they tend to some animals and they scrape out a living from the land and so everyone’s involved in using their bodies so they’re all getting activity fresh air sunlight sure water okay they don’t eat a lot of food because they don’t have a lot of food okay so they’re minimizing their caloric intake eating no more than they really need they run out of food every winter right so you’re talking about having slim pickings in in January February March they don’t eat anything for at least a month every year everybody fast because there’s no food they just rest it’s like they hibernate right they all get in bed and they just rest a NATO dig dus little they have to it’s cold no you know no one was going to be outside if they don’t have to be outside there’s nothing to do and there’s no food they don’t have firewood so they just bundle up they hunker down and they try to stay warm and they don’t eat anything so they’re cleansing their body every single year okay this is why I believe they live as long as they do not because they’re consuming a little bit of goat’s milk all right you know let’s look at all the factors involved any questions about about these folks no all right well hope that’s been interesting for you see you next time you

Local Organic Farm Tour | Midwest Plant-based Vegan Lifestyle

You want beef at the price of bread right well the system can’t sustain the system the industrial system can turn it out but the system s and the earth can’t sustain the time that we spend to think our ideas to grow to match them with the dressing or inappropriate use and get them to your table and the time that you spend deciding who to come out with getting all the way out here and the time around the table that’s all part of your experience in a meal there are three tiers so you know those restaurants that next up you know that was delicious right and then the third tier life is good hey guys Aaron and dusty here and welcome back to eat move rest so clearly we’re not in the kitchen today we are actually taking you guys on an organic farm tour yes so Jerry and Renee Cornett are the owners of lake house farm which is an organic produce farm just north of Lincoln Nebraska where we live and we became acquainted with them and have gotten to know them over the years at our local Sunday farmers market they own an organic farm-to-table restaurant right there on the farm called Prairie plate we had an awesome tour they sat us down with fed us an amazing meal we were there for like we were basically there all day and we had an absolute blast these people care about quality of food organic farming just amazing practices all the way around yeah eating seasonal like it’s it’s about as good as it can get especially where we’re located right here in the heartland this is the way food should be they’re bringing it back and this this place is literally a hidden gem in every sense of the word especially for here in the middle of the Midwest in Nebraska where everybody’s just worried about belying up at the local steakhouse and all-you-can-eat buffets this is locally sourced seasonal organically grown fresh as fresh as it gets and a lot of thought and preparation goes into each and every plate the menu changes on a weekly basis based upon what’s growing at the farm so thank you Jerry and Renee we had a such an awesome day it was so much fun we might be back like every Monday we’ll just do like a farm tour and you can see this lunch that would be amazing look we will let them do the rest enjoy you guys around so enjoy

Hey guys Aaron here at Eaton arrest and I am with Jerry and Rene cornet of Lake House farm which is a certified organic produce farm just outside of Lincoln Nebraska when we opened this restaurant we thought okay let’s celebrate food right let’s make food fun yeah let’s make it a celebration she wanted to a relatively small restaurant where you’re the chef maybe assistant it’s personal yeah not personal you go talk to your table you know 56 seats you know restaurant that’s different yeah yeah we kind of keep going through that they just don’t know what they don’t know yet yeah you don’t even know to ask the question and so where do you get the word to people and they’re always so offended that come out of your mouth how come you’ve been over in five years and I didn’t know yeah the way the farm grows and what we grow is based on what’s the restaurant need you know as a nurse through the season the folks that come from outside are like yeah this is awesome this is a unique there are probably a dozen restaurants like this in the United States right you know and most of them charge a lot more than we do and then there are some people that are retired farmers and it’s interesting because often I get the comment from them you know we used to eat this way right yeah we used to we used to eat this way yeah yeah very there wasn’t a lot of slaughter yeah to do what I know yeah you don’t have enough freezer space to put it you know kidding what are you gonna do it what are you gonna do with all of them yeah you know we use a oil block system and it’s essentially this little block we start to see it in this is a this is a summer lettuce called grandpa admire it’s an heirloom lettuce that does well in the heat and so will will grow winter lettuces and then we transition to summer lettuces and then there’s a point where okay lettuce just doesn’t grow very well here because it gets too hot it gets really bitter and so what we do in the restaurant okay at that point stop and then you go to a salad that is tomato and cucumber or not lettuce the first item on the menu is always lake house farm salad it will change to be whatever it is and we have that’s the best from the farm and sometimes it’s so people see salad they automatically think that so it’s very important the server’s remember to tell them that the salad isn’t lettuce if it’s not lettuce because we’re used to thinking that’s the only choice mm-hmm primary purpose of this is really protecting it from the wind yeah it’ll get down to ten below in here and the kale will be fine yeah vintage will be fine really even the lettuce will survive one or two frost yeah we grow more Tomatoes out here and like two and a half rows are just sauced tomato sandwich ah no so we they’re meant to be cooked down two types of sweet peppers one is long and the other one the sheep nose pimento is a small one it’s like a slow food yeah smaller but it’s got a lot more meat flesh to it and the skin is still thin so you don’t really have to peel them for a lot of things if you’re gonna appear it use them in something but they stuff and cook really well yeah what’s all of you guys been organic since day one yeah it’s hard that like the certification process is pretty rigorous it is every year you submit a plan and then they review it and then they have an inspector to come out and it really comes down to you know doing with you said you were gonna do and then paying attention to things like soil health yeah in mild adversity like they just added a biodiversity page for us we looked at I look at this property in two ways one it’s got an incredible amount of biodiversity yep and so I just let it go I don’t try to do anything to change it [Music] [Music] out in the middle of the desert is hopeful California and and we took the kids out there once just to go out and walk with the desert you know do some other fun things stayed there there’s actually a little Museum and they explained to you you know this is the carrot we grow you know because it can grow and stand yeah and a machine can harvest it yeah and you know sand doesn’t you know though the vegetable it’s not picking up nutrients minerals from sunlight statement you’ve got an atom just about everything yeah we’re here we have clay soils which means they can be a little more problematic to grow in but in a lot easier because the particles smaller for that plan to take up all of those nutrients or minerals right and then convert it into I like one flavor for us but for others nutrients so that carrot that grows in a healthy humus organic matter rich soil is naturally going to take up all of that all those flavors yeah yeah looks like yeah a formula versus breast milk Oh site in the Roman period when his remedy was actually very good where these science knows better yeah and so we’re gonna make formula that’s gonna have it everything the baby needs in its gonna and then they were finding out wait we missed this we did you know about that and you can’t simulate this other thing and then there’s a so all of that stuff that we don’t know because nature’s better at it yeah that also works for other system I asked in fact it was an old man you know I think is a retired farmer he’s like I said like why do you buy our carrots like they taste like the ones my grandmother used to [Music] [Applause] [Music] so we just got plated lunch and we’ve got sweet potato vindaloo and some rice well along with some steamed and sauteed chart so we’re excited busy in the ponies perspective you know when you when you grow it for the season you grow it for the region and then you harvest it for flavor focus one you don’t need to do much in the kitchen and two you walk away more satiating yeah and it’s celebrity there are three tiers I think in the restaurant industry this came for books one is for so you know those restaurants yeah that next up that you know that was delicious right and then the third tier was life is good I think we want to be kind of between that was delicious and life is good love that somewhere in there yeah but it never tastes better than in context in the season at the time the place that’s grown it’s not going to get any better the time that we spend to pick varieties to grow to match them with the dressing or an appropriate use and get them to your table and the time that you spend deciding who to come out with getting all the way out here and the time around the table that’s all part of your experience in the meal yeah okay so we hope you guys enjoyed this video if you know the drill give us a thumbs up give us a like leave us a comment below leave us some love let us know what you liked what you want to see more of in the future subscribe if you haven’t already

My Advice to New Vegans

Okay so the question is what advice would you give to someone that is just getting started with all of this with all of this meaning diet or diet and training or what does all of this look like yeah the real challenges that keep coming up for me and most of the people that I talk with or work with it’s not the diet itself it’s how the diet is perceived that’s really the biggest challenge that’s the biggest hurdle to get around we have our we have our own brainwashing there were a lot of times when I started out running when I was doing the running raw project in those first few years where I really doubted that I was getting enough protein I wasn’t sure because I’ve been part of that cultural brainwashing and back when I was an athlete in my late teens I was doing lots of protein supplements and I was doing all kinds of gland products and all kinds of crazy crap and creatine and everything else because I wanted every edge I could take so you know fast forward 15 16 years into the future and part of my brain is saying well can I do it without those things is this diet enough I don’t know am I getting enough protein I am and there’s no evidence to show me the contrary but yet those doubts were still there and they those doubts stayed there for a couple years it’s only maybe the past three or four years that I’m really confident with this diet even though I had the data even though the data was right there I still had doubts well what if it doesn’t work for me what if I’m different somehow so it’s really about overcoming your own cultural brainwashing and then dealing with your friends and family and you know lovers spouses whatever it may be who are gonna have cultural programming as well that you could have to deal with then you’re gonna have to continually answer the question where do you get your protein or do get your FAS and where do you get this and where do you get that and how do you get your calcium and what about your b12 and we’re constantly bombarded with these things if you’re eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and some nuts and seeds you’re getting the most nutrient dense diet on the planet no standard American diet can compete as far as nutrient density goes as far as the wide variety of vitamins minerals and phytonutrients and fibers you can’t compete on those diets but yet the people eating those diets believe that somehow their diet is superior without any evidence to support it but it’s this like cultural virus that everybody has that they’re eating the deficient diet but clearly the vegans and the raw foodist those are the people that are deficient it’s like smokers telling people that they’re deficient in oxygen because they’re breathing clean air it’s like how could you get enough oxygen and breathing clean air you need cigarettes to get oxygen kind of you know what’s going on you know you get all these people that are eating a horrible diet which is heavily supplemented they’re like oh you can’t be vegan because you need b12 and that just shows the veganism doesn’t work well that’s interesting because your milk has vitamin D added your flour products have niacin riboflavin thiamine and reduced iron added to them and on and on and on all of the products that you’re eating are heavily supplemented your diet doesn’t work in fact your diet heavily supplemented still leads to heart disease cancer diabetes and on and on and on so the government tried to fix your diet by adding lots of supplements to it mandating that these foods be supplemented and you’re still falling apart but yet they believe somehow that were the ones that are deficient it just doesn’t make sense but this is what we have to deal with we have to deal with a culture that doesn’t make sense that’s going to alienate us and that’s going to attack us and it’s going to make us question ourselves so if you’re eating a wide variety of foods and a wide variety of flavors and textures you’re going to be okay and maybe you want to take some vitamin b12 maybe you want to take some vitamin D that’s up to you do your research get your blood tested but even so no big deal you’re gonna be healthy it’s really about dealing with the the emotional stuff dealing with the cultural stuff that’s the biggest hurdle so you know my advice is never defend yourself just smile nod you know make a joke about it but don’t defend yourself because you can’t win that conversation because it’s not a rational conversation

3 Easy Ways to Ensure Your Long Term Success on a Raw Vegan Diet

Alright! This is John Kohler with okraw.com today with
another exciting episode for you and we have very special interview for you guys today
got my friend dr. Rick Dina who’s been on a raw vegan diet now
for 29 years. He actually started in 1987 and I myself have
been doing a raw vegan plant-based diet now since 1995 so I’m going into my 21st year
this year and we’re going to talk about a topic that’s important to the both of us,
is how do you maintain and stay raw for a long period of time? You know you might see other You Tubers on
YouTube that have been doing it 6 months a couple 2, 1 year 3 years and giving all these
tips but I really want to give you guys good solid information from people that have been
really been doing this a long time and have a lot more experience that you could really
learn from, grow from and benefit from. So we are going to ask Dr Rick and he will
share with you guys the top 3 ways how you can stay raw for the long term, so Dr Rick
what are these 3 ways that people need to know? Dr Rick: Well alright I’m borrowing some
information from a telesummit my wife Dr Karen Dina and I gave a little while ago on the
exact same topic how to stay raw over the long term? And we’ve got three basic reasons and you
could go into a lot more details with each of those reasons. Number 1 is motivation, people have to find
what motivates them and so the thing is, if you’re if you’re going along eating pizza
and cheeseburgers eating your donuts and everything’s good life’s great, why give up all the stuff
that you like? There’s no reason to so people find all sorts
of different incentives and reasons why they want to make some dietary changes in the first
place and those have to be compelling enough to get you to try something different and
learn some new things and give up some stuff that you used to like. So for a lot of people health is the main
reason so course weight loss is huge almost everybody out there in the world so many people
need to lose weight and literally it’s growing all the time in terms of the percentage of
our population that’s overweight so I mean a healthfully implemented raw food diet can
do that so well and I do say healthfully implemented cause there’s a lot of kind of raw food diets
out there that people gain weight on so fruit and vegetable based logical sensible good
education although that’s coming up in a minute. So people want to lose weight. People often time want to increase their athletic
performance I mean that’s huge God I’ve had so many people I’ve consulted with that
have said they have start eating more fruits and vegetables and their marathon times are
decreasing and they were recovering faster from the workouts and all sorts of stuff like
that. Sometimes people also noticed that their brain
capacity is improved it is dramatically better so for example my father-in-law is 90 years
old and my wife Dr Karen isn’t here right now because she is helping him out. She flew across the country and his brain
is functioning better now at 90 then it was previously at 85 and so she really helped
him make some major changes in his diet even though he’s not doing nearly as much as we’d
like him too he’s included more fruits and vegetables and it’s made a big difference
in how quick his mind is and how sharp he is and he’s still living on his own and it’s
his friends and neighbours are pretty convinced that if it weren’t for her help he wouldn’t
be on his own and he probably wouldn’t still be with us. So a lot of us have noticed that our brains
are the clearest when we are eating the healthiest. Lot of times people find for example you’ll
see a lot of yoga people who eat a raw food diet there’s a big connection there because
number 1 they’re interested in athletic performance and flexibility so they find that it’s easier
to get into complex poses and they can hold things longer and their strength improving
as well as there’s a spiritual connection with yoga so people find that when their body
is clear and clean they just feel more connected no matter what their take on things. or their spiritual religious views are they
just feel more calm and more connected to whatever they’re trying to connect with so
that’s a big part of it. Many people find incentive to improve their
health when they are faced with some type of major Health Challenge okay I’ve got high
blood pressure I’ve high cholesterol you know whatever other issues are going on and
people don’t always like the way they feel from the medications or they’re starting to
get angina pain and they know that that’s going to lead to heart disease for example
and they have grandkids that they want to see grow up and you know life’s good and
they don’t want to cut it short so disease reversal is a huge incentive maybe other than
weight loss may be one of the biggest reason cause it’s not so easy again to give up your
pizza and hotdogs and all that stuff you like. But when someone says when you get educated
and you realize wow is those things worth losing my life over wow you’ve got enough
incentive now to give those things up and it’s better to eat oatmeal and fruit smoothies
and stuff like that in the morning and enjoy yourself rather than have bacon and eggs and
not be around so that’s a big part of it. Then once people get healthy they want to
stay healthy so they to maintain their health they they want to keep eating healthy so that’s
another major incentive and then there’s a few of us out there that are wise enough that
we don’t want to wait till we have a health problem we’ve seen what’s happened to family
members we see what’s going on in society and we’re enjoying being vital and healthy
and youthful and we want to stay that way for a long time so there’s another good reason
so we’re still on the number 1 top reasons maintaining things long term is what motivates
people what gives them John: Why yeah what why? What motivated me I got into this because
of my health it was loss of my life and that that I didn’t need any other reason man I
mean I want to be here man. Dr Rick: That a good enough it’s only one
reason but boy that’s pretty big, stick around you know that’s huge and going back
to again with the spiritual connection and yoga that I was using in this example a lot
of people find that they feel better emotionally when they eat healthfully I mean people go
out and you know eat Diorites all day and all that kind of stuff and it’s hard not to
feel on edge and whatnot so emotional health can also be a big reason people find incentive
and then beyond personal health reasons there’s other reasons as well so a lot of people don’t
feel comfortable having to kill something so they can live so they just want to eat
plants instead of you know killing animals and I really can appreciate that and then
people also realize that okay if you eat some plants like this you can get the calories
directly from the plans but if you feed these plants to animals 96 or so percent whatever
it is of the calories from these plants go into the animal’s metabolism and then we don’t
actually get those calories back when we eat the animals so leaving a lighter footprint
on the earth it is a big reason also and the more reasons you have stacked up the more
likely you are to stick with it over the long term. if health is your only concern and you’re
feeling pretty healthy but someone says oh you need to eat fish for the DHA and EPA the
long-chain omega-3 fats highly and saturated fats are extremely important by the way. You might be like no problem bring on the
fish but if you’re concerned about the planet and we realize we’re overfishing and that’s
causing a lot of environmental destruction and that type of thing and you also actually
care about the fish themselves you’ll stay on a plant-based path, so you’ve got more
reasons than just your health. Sometimes people find that they they get healthy
they are feeling good but then some other things creep back into their diet, their joint
pain comes back or their blood pressure goes up again so the more reasons you have the
more likely you are to stick with it over the long-term all else being equal. John: So Dr Rick as much as I had you know
losing my life as my main motivation to start now that I’ve been doing this for over the
years I’ve seen and started piling on like you suggested other reasons that kind of give
leverage to me to stick with this diet since it is having like one brick you know as a
weight I have like 20 bricks as a foundation like I’m building a pyramid here man and
that pyramids is solid man it aint going anywheres and you know yea I mean I’ve experienced
doing it but experience like the different spiritual connection the connect with nature
wanting to conserve the planet the planet’s resources and being more concerned about that
and opening me up to like solar power and not consuming all these natural gas and gasoline
resources on the planet and does all these things are super important so as much as you
might have one that’s like the most important to you now put them in order make a list actually
of what the most important ones and as you go on in this journey you’ll learn other
things and why it’s so important to continue this and to keep it up. Dr Rick: Yea, that’s such a good point John
and I know for me I wanted to lose some weight and get in shape and my brain was kind of
cloudy and foggy and once I started doing that I started feeling so much better and
I started thinking about the animals. I use to think those animal rights people
bunch of whackos you know I don’t want to hear but you know I started to understand
them like that’s a really good point and then the planetary things and this spiritual
stuff I just yea it all starts to come together so it’s kind of nice you get into one arena
and once you’re or one avenue and then you get into the arena and you you realise all
the other reasons as well. John: Right
Dr Rick: So the more of those you can connect to the better. John: Absolutely, so yea that’s number 1
what’s the second way? Dr Rick: Number 2 and this is this is where
my wife and I what we do with our life’s work is so critical I think number 2 is education
it’s because people can have all the incentive in the world but then what happens is they
start on a plant-based diet they’re feeling good and sometimes they don’t do it right
they think that handfuls and nuts and seeds and all the gourmet food is going to be the
healthiest for them and maybe their health improved some but not nearly as much as they
were hoping. They don’t get the goals they were looking
for and they’re like why bother giving up all the other stuff I like if I’m still on
my blood pressure medication so you’ve got to take the right approach and there’s there’s
so many ways that people can get confused or lacking a nutrient sometimes they are not
eating enough fats and sometimes they are eating too much fats are afraid of fruit you
know all and then they’re eating more fat as a result and people are so confusing and
so number one they got to find what works for them. That’s absolutely critical but then there’s
a whole other growing reason, growing aspect of this where things are working well for
people but they’re not well educated enough to fend off if you will all the other stuff
bombarding at them, like where do you get enough protein and what about essential fats
you need to have fish right? and vitamin K2 oh you need your bone broth for that cause
if you’re not goanna get it your bone are goanna be weak and you’re goanna get hip
fractures you vegetarians better watch out, and and what else? Oh you got to cook your food for lycopene
and beta carotene you got to you know vegetarians are deficient in vitamin D and that’s true
but just as much as the rest of the population so I mean there is all these different thing
out there, oh iodine you have to do this and go on these crazy crazy mega dose protocol
and I mean there’s just and then people say you better eat fish so anyway there these
whole set of reasons why people not so informed who look at a raw vegan diet and think oh
my gosh that looks too challenging for me and then think Ok on the one hand if it’s
right and they don’t do it they feel like they are doing something wrong and that’s
tough it’s tough for everybody to look in the mirror and acknowledge their own issues
and shortcomings what’s much easier is let’s make it wrong let’s criticize it so B12d essential
fats protein you know all that other stuff K2 ah people it’s just easier to start complaining
about that and putting it out and then people want to get their own attention so they just
repeat the rhetoric and put that out and those of you in earnest who are trying to learn
about raw food nutrition you tune into to YouTube and you see some good stuff from some
of the good You Tubers and you see a lot of nonsense also and it throws you off the path
so proper education will number 1 get you on an approach that works the best for you
and number 2 will give you the confidence to stay there because you will not get thrown
off track by the people who are uneducated yet who have loud voices and a lot of outreach
so the education part is so important we teach a series of classes called the Science of
Raw Food Nutrition it’s a hundred hours’ worth of intensely pack information we could
turn it into 500 hours easily. People are just scribbling notes its super
dense. John: So Dr Rick besides like your hundred
hours of course that I know that people can go to attend actually for a lot of money and
there’s no substitute for going to a 100 hours of education that you packed in even more
information into I know you have you and your wife actually mostly your wife Dr Karen wrote
a book that I would actually encourage you guys to get that I have myself and it’s probably
the number one book I would recommend on a raw food that’s available at this time actually
I haven’t written my book yet but it’s solid so can you tell people more about that because
minimally if you don’t do anything else get their books so you can get a good solid foundation
of how to eat raw food that healthy. Dr Rick: Yea absolutely so first for our classes
you spend a few thousand dollars and you have a lifetime of education so many of our students
tell us our notes are references for them for years and years and years to come and
you think about that compared to being on medication for the rest of your life and dealing
with all the side effects so first of all I think it’s an incredible lifetime investment
and good value however that’s not the right approach for everyone and then so for 15 bucks
on Amazon you can buy Dr Karen book the Raw Food Nutrition handbook now I know there’s
lots of books on raw food and nutrition out there and a lot of times people hear a few
things they repeat rhetoric it’s in their book they put a fancy cover they get a marketing
team they sell a whole bunch of them. I can tell you our book though is based on
our 55 plus years of personal experience tones of education both formal and cool cutting-edge
stuff type of education and and our clinical experience and our research experience it’s
all condensed into a basic yet done very thoroughly to lay the foundation book called the Raw
Food and Nutrition Handbook so for 15 bucks you can get an enormous education about how
to keep on this path long term that way. John: Awesome yea also I’d recommend checking
out Dr Rick and Karen’s YouTube channel I’ll put links down below this video for
that or those links for their videos down below this video also for that also be sure
to subscribe to this channel if you’re not ready. I give some pretty good solid information
most of which Dr Rick would probably agree with maybe not everything. But we agree with like most stuff man. Dr Rick: Just to give you a plug John and
I have been friends since what 1998 or something like that and over the years we were just
on the same page with so many things I’m glad that you are utilizing YouTube to get good
information out there and I would so much love to say everybody on YouTube is giving
good information but I just can’t it’s just not fair from someone who’s been around the
block a few times and ah so keep checking out the videos that’s that’s good stuff. John: Thanks Dr Rick so moving on to number
3 now on how to stay raw long term, what’s that? Dr Rick: So number 1 we got motivation talked
all about health reasons, environment, animals etcetera. Number 2 education you got to know what you’re
doing. You can’t be successful at anything if you
don’t know what you’re doing and number 3 interesting enough is flexibility, because
sometime people hear, they’ll watch YouTube, go to a lecture, read some books and it’s
like the way to do it John: Dogma Dr Rick: This is the way this is it everyone’s
human have to eat the same way and you’ll always find a segment of the population that
that works great for and then you’ll find another segment of the population that that
didn’t work so well for. So if people are convinced there’s only one
way to do it, they do that way and they’re not feeling good and it’s not working for
them well, first of all they might start blaming themselves if they are thoroughly convinced
that’s way to do it oh I must be doing this wrong, there must be something wrong with
me, there must be something I’m missing. And that’s not about health that’s self-defeating
that’s beating yourself up, why should you have a dogmatic system that makes you beat
yourself up? Again that’s not about health or sometimes
they’ll go somewhere else oh my God someone else has the way to do it and it’s a different
way they say opposite thing so they switch over there and then maybe there’s some benefits
to that but then there’s some drawback to that and that, that might not work either
what we have found over the years like myself, my wife, John so many other people we know
who our long-term successful healthy raw food vegans is they are flexible and open-minded
enough and oftentimes even ten twenty thirty years in they’re still learning new things
that are helping them and by trying this trying that understanding this understanding that
making sense out of different things and then doing some personal experimentation sometimes
we can help guide people with lab work with that what works for them and what doesn’t
they find the approach that works for them and they also enjoy doing it they like eating
the food it’s fun and you feel good and you get all the benefits so that flexibility is
just absolutely so key. It doesn’t mean be so flexible that you’re
off the path but it means learn the fundamentals and then find what works for you and you can
enjoy it over the long term just such a critical piece of the puzzle there. John: Yeah I completely agree one of the things
you know that you’ll notice about me and if you watch my videos from I don’t know 6
years back when I started making them I change what I do like, not in any large way I still
eat raw plants you know, fruits and vegetables predominately but I’ve changed things up
a little bit and you can see me in my journey on my YouTube channel changing things up and
I’m highly suspect of people that always keep it the same right cause there in always
new information new data new research studies coming out and just as I learn more and get
more knowledgeable about things in life and I would always encourage you guys to work
on always improving yourselves whether it’s with your diet, your relationships, with growing
your own food ,whatever it is we should always strive to improve and make the world a better
place not only for us but for future generations, so yeah. If something’s is not working change and
modify and be flexible in your approach is the main message. So Dr Rick I know you have a programme coming
up that’s free available for everybody where you are going to have 25 long-term 20-plus
years for the most part raw foodies and people that do a raw plant-based diets successfully
that you guys could all benefit from for free, so tell my viewers about this program and
the summit you have coming up? Dr Rick: Well we have put together a programme
called the Raw For life summit number 1 you can you can have a lot of life and vitality
from eating raw foods and number 2 to keep it up for life so like John said we’ve got
over 25 people who have been successfully and healthfully and enjoyably maintaining
a either high to all raw diet for 18, 25, 30 or more years who have really stood the
test of time and we interview all these people each interviews like 45 minutes to an hour
someone a little bit over and we ask each person what is breakfast lunch and dinner
look like? Why do you do what you do? Is your diet the same today as it was back
when you started? And for most people there’s a certain foundation
but things have changed over time so that flexibility comes in handy. John you mentioned such a good point earlier
with flexibility with anything in life not just what you eat you got to be flexible enough
and change and see what works and what doesn’t. So we find out what they eat, why they eat
it, what gave them incentive in the first place, what kind of education they have and
what kind of flexibility they have? And it’s just so revealing and here’s a perfect
example 29 years in you know doctorate degree lots of education, lots of clinical experience
I learned a lot of new things talking to a lot of these people so it’s called the Raw
for Life summit so I think we’re going to put the link right here put it right there
for you guys, put it right there, there it is and yeah you can hear from all these people
and get their inspiration and again hear from the people who have stood the test of time
who it’s still working for and I’m going to speculate here that you’re probably going
to get some better advice if sticking with this long-term is your goal from listening
to people who have stuck with it long term vs people who are newer. Now we were all new at some point too but
you know when (cross talk: been around the block) when you take the new kids some make
it some don’t. When you take in to account people have been
at it 20 or 30 or more years they’re all in the long term camp, so can’t emphasize
the value of that enough. John: Yeah I mean I definitely recommend once
again I’ll put the link right here below and also there be a link in the description
as well as in the comments so click that to sign up for this free Raw For Life Health
Summit that you can learn and gain from. Now the thing I want to say is that there’s
going to be like 25 different people on the summit that Dr Rick and Dr Karen will be interviewing
and have an open mind, when your listen to you may not agree 100% of everything of any
one person says but they’ll be nuggets right pick out the things that make the most sense
for you and start incorporating those into your life. Dr Rick: Which is the central theme of The
Summit right, that one of the things that all the people do, they just don’t do it one
way we have a variety of approached but we don’t have anyone on there that’s too dogmatic
because the most of the dogmatic people don’t make it over the long term sorry to say, but
you have to be committed. So you’ll see how they find that balance
and you know not everyone agrees with everyone my wife and I don’t agree on everything believe
it or not a husband and wife don’t agree on everything, John and I don’t agree on
everything but we all have a certain foundation and by the way our lead off our lead off speaker
is is John he’s leading off the event cause he’s a 100% raw for a long time lot of (crosstalk
99.9%) people know about him well a lot of 9’s right we’ll cut you a little slack
there well I’m about 90% raw off and that’s what works for me all raw for extended period
but then you know I have some steamed vegetables here and there, so anyway John is our lead
off and it’s just a really great event and again I’ve learned a lot from interviewing
all these people and we’d like you to do the same. John: Awesome so Dr Rick why did you and your
wife Dr Karen decide to put this event on for everybody for free? Dr Rick: Well number 1 we would like to tell
people a little bit more about what we do that we feel like in a lot of ways we’ve been
the best kept secret in raw food nutrition for many years you know we’ve spent a lot
more time educating ourselves then we have marketing ourselves you know most people in
the raw food movement it’s just the opposite they go to a weekend seminar they read a few
books and then they are experts and they spend a lot of money on marketing and they you know
they have their channels they do their blogs and they have a lot of outreach but they know
very little so we been like heavily weighted on the research, the clinical experience,
the teaching, the education the working with people that’s number 1 and number 2 while
we are at it a lot of these summits they just get the people with the biggest list and say
let’s get all these people so we can get the most exposure and although we have some
popular people with big list and we are going to get a lot of good exposure. it was really important to us to maintain
the theme of the summit to just find people who we knew were healthfully and successfully
at this for a long time, to be of the most benefit to all of you so many of these things
you hear the one dogma, you hear the opposite dogma, you leave more confused than you were
before you started. We didn’t want that there’s too much of
that out there and it’s goanna continue, so we really wanted to provide something of
value to really help you keep this up for a lifetime. So you can keep getting all the benefits that
all of us do, that we enjoy so much. It’s such a central theme of our lives for
for good reasons because it enhances our lives and we want that for all of you too. John: Awesome yeah one of the reasons why
I continue to make videos to this day is just to share the knowledge and to help my fellow
man right. I mean this is just good for you, it’s good
for the planet, it’s good for the animals, it’s good for so many different things and
you know I’m glad you guys are watching to this point it is this video this lets me know
that you’re really committed. So I want you click that link right down below
and sign up for the summit that’s coming up really soon don’t miss out on any of
the episode including the first one that I’m in. Aright, Dr Rick so any other comments or things
you like to share with my viewers today? Dr Rick: Find your motivation stack up all
those reasons get some good education we’re not the only ones to do it but you’ll find
some other really awesome educators on the summit and be flexible in your approach see
what works and what doesn’t I’ve got to give a lot of credit to Tony Robbins ultimate
success formula. Number 1 know your outcome yeah you want to
be healthy you want to leave a lighter footprint on the earth etcetera number 2 start taking
action eat more fruits and vegetables and then number 3 this is where most people start
messing up see if it’s working or not and if it is keep it up if it’s not then number
4 change your approach and modify and be flexible and find what does work and you just keep
going through that cycle and you go about it rationally and intelligently you will be
successful and like John touched on earlier whether it’s your diet or anything any other
endeavour in life that’s the way to go about it so. J0hn: Awesome, awesome yeah I agree Dr Rick
and I and Dr Karen went to a Tony Robbins seminar together years ago unleash the power
within… yeah we unleash the fire we did it was great. So if you guys enjoyed this episode with Dr

How To Succeed On The Raw Vegan Diet

What’s up everybody I want to do a video on staying grounded on a raw food diet how’d it just how to be successful long term and I guess you could say you know why a lot of people might fail eating raw foods and I think it’s because we failed to stay grounded and balanced satiated these are all words that I think a lot of people these are all things that a lot of people struggle to find when they’re eating more raw foods and that’s because it’s the difference with the energy when you’re eating a fruit based diet which is more of you know the focus you know when we’re eating raw foods we want to be mostly eating fruits because those are the hydrating electrical foods that are conducive for all cellular activity because they have the living electricity in those foods there are electrical foods it’s a completely different energy when you start eating this way it’s completely different to what most people are used to most people they’re born and from the day they’re born they are fed cooked foods they’re fed soy formula they’re fed foods that are not conducive for human health they’re fed high-fat high-protein foods very congested foods and they grow up that way and so our bodies are literally used to being sick our bodies are used to being in a state of toxicity our bodies are used to being on high fat and high protein diets now fruits are mostly carbohydrate based which is what the the cells run on is carbon you know and a lot of people are scared of sugar but that’s not the truth and you know you should never be scared of sugar it’s just the kind of sugars it’s simple is it complex where is it coming from that’s more of what we want to be talking about if you’re going to be worried about anything it’s protein and protein and excess is a problematic and so people that consume lots of nuts and seeds you get too caught up you know doing gourmet recipes and stuff like that you’re not gonna feel as good eating a raw food because you’re you’re eating too much you know like protein and fat it’s not going to make you feel good I think a little bit of fat is a smart thing to do I like to consume a little bit of fat myself and I typically keep that to coconuts meat and avocado I think those are the most satiating fats that aren’t really too mucus-forming and they help you stay balanced because the point I was gonna make was that you know we grow up on these animal meats and stuff like that and there’s a lot of protein and fat in those foods so as I was about to say we get on these fruits that are mostly carbon-based and we get away from those fats and proteins and it’s just you’re not used to feeling that light the body’s not used to feeling that light so it’s very important that we use foods like avocados and coconuts and transition accordingly like I like to have a couple of kados a day and I have these coconut wraps these are raw vegan coconut wraps and I’ll slice up some avocado some sprouts guacamole whatever make a dressing something like that cucumber you know sometimes I’ll put some basil cilantro something like that in here might add a little water to rehydrate these things and I’ll make a little wrap and that way there’s no nuts no seeds the food combining is pretty good and these digest good I feel pretty balanced and I’ve been with this support of this company for a while now I really like them I like these coconut wraps in particular because they’re very light they’re very simple two ingredients coconut and psyllium husk so very simple very easy to digest and you can make little wraps like that and then you feel full you know that’s what most people are missing typically I’ll eat that and then I’ll just have some tea 30 minutes after some fluids rehydrate and then later in the day I’ll bring fruits back into the equation but it’s nice to have a meal or something you can eat where feels like you’re full it feels like you’re satiated it’s a light it’s not too complex you know a lot of people struggle sustaining this raw food diet because they you know see other people taking blenders and mixing so many different ingredients together and it’s like whoa whoa whoa those different foods are gonna digest at different rates so we really got a food combining is essential to understand food combining the timing in which you eat foods you don’t want to eat carbohydrates directly after eating fats you don’t want to mix those things together or you know even with proteins you don’t want to eat carbohydrates on top of proteins you really don’t want to eat excess proteins at all because they’re just gonna acidify the human body so you know I’m gonna link that like I said I’m gonna link those coconut wraps down below raw vegan coconut wraps you should see that if you just scroll in the description box below this video really good company and you can use the discount code discount code wild 15 capital WIIL d15 and you’ll get a discount on those things try them out see what you think if you have a dehydrator you can make you know raw egg and wraps yourself but I like those I like those a lot they help me to sustain myself the fats have been what’s kept me on this lifestyle long term I don’t do too much extended fasting like maybe once or twice a year I’ll do something like that like a short water fast or maybe some juice cleansing or something like that but for the most part I just intermittent dry fast everyday and even that I don’t extend that too much I don’t overeat a lot of food I think I’m kinda in the middle of a little bit of with all this I guess you could say because a lot of people some people will tell you to eat like 3000 4000 calories of carbohydrates a day and that’s a recipe to poop your pants because if you eat that much fruit all one’s you’re gonna have to be right next to the toilet toilet all day long so I don’t think those people are given really good advice I don’t think the people that are saying he low low low fat our being understanding for the individuals that have weakened nervous systems and need a little bit of fat in their diet to help soothe the nerves as you regenerate at a foundational level with the hydrating of juicy fruits I hope this kind of makes sense I just talked to so many people doing consultations and like I just don’t feel like I can eat all fruit and that’s like because we were raised on these super fatty protein foods don’t feel guilty about eating an avocado or two if it helps you to stay on this path yes I personally have found they’re a little bit mucus-forming and others might come to the same conclusion when you eat the juicy fruits and then have an avocado and you get really sensitive you might notice that a bit mucus flowing but who cares that’s the worse you doing you’re doing real good you’re doing real good and understanding what these different foods is essential you know the carbohydrate foods that the carbohydrate source that’s key because that is what the cells run on fats lipids they buffer acidity in the body this is why a lot of people really get into the high fat diets because it gives them instant gratification instant relief from whatever problems they might be experiencing but it is you know staying on those foods that are less obstructive like the fruits the high carbon based fruits that are that’s going to keep your body in a less obstructed state and allow for more healing to occur when you’re bringing the more obstructive foods that just tends to slow the detox down and so people tend to feel a lot better when they do that but those that walk the narrow path of detoxification and go through the detox reactions and clean all that out will be greatly rewarded with their health and that will manifest itself in the iris of made plenty of videos talking about iridology which is also key to understanding I’m just going to start saying this more and more understanding iridology and understanding the length system is absolutely imperative to sustaining the raw vegan diet long-term because now you have a landmark when you can track the different pigmentations and markings in your eye and watch those change and develop an understanding as to why those markings are there then it becomes you become a lot more confident as to why you’re experiencing the certain detox reactions you may be experiencing because you can see where certain toxicity has settled in the body you’re not caught up chasing certain minerals and vitamins and doing this test that tests you got a read on the limp system and now you feel really grounded so I did also make a course called The Healing Arts Academy where is I think 60 to 70 videos and I’m just continuously adding more and more videos to that I want to make that the best iridology course out there for people to learn I read ology at a fordable rate and you know then the moms and the dads that watch this video can read all their kids eyes you can read your friends eyes and when you get good at reading the eye you become very confident in this material because you understand the nature of the lymphatic system and the different stages of 1,000 jes tchen expressing themselves in the iris so I do encourage you to watch the iridology videos on this channel at the very least because it will be of great service to you and understanding this understanding is the key word understanding what fats do they buffer us at understanding that when you’re on a more carbon-based diet your body’s going to heal more and you’re going to that can be intense sometimes understanding proteins are degenerative that’s coming from a ex bodybuilder football player I think I have a pretty good context with that understanding the nature of the lymphatics in understanding these things when in a world internet world of so much conflicting information understanding the iris is all you need you don’t need to outsource information from anyone else once you can read your own eyes that’s that’s I think the biggest blessing you could give anyone so I did I really have so much respect for people like bernard jensen robert morris people that have really brought that information forward because you know when you understand the I your golden ‘golden baby so fresh juices you know fresh juice is at a foundational level fresh fruits hydrating you know I like whole fruits and vegetable juices and a little bit of fat and understanding the iris I feel it’s very grounded I’m able to work go about my day to day life and I just feel like I’m sustaining this effortlessly long term now I’m approaching two years on this lifestyle and it’s just felt don’t get me wrong there’s detox reactants all the time I have I’m gonna make another video on healing cycles and what not but these are all key things to understand and then spiritually and emotionally like you know when you’re on those carbon-based foods like again you’re going to be more sensitive to stuff when I’m in an airport I have to have a few avocados with me or when I’m in a crowd or something like that I gotta have those Ofcom’s to stay grounded you know otherwise I just feel everything a little bit too much so it’s important that you know as you know we got to look at each other more just human beings and what’s going on at a physical level and understand that emotionally spiritually it’s important that we stay grounded too you know and some of these raw foods like the avocados the coconuts even the denser fruits like bananas if you’re somewhere tropical and you can get mayonnaise sapote you know some of those richer more dense food dates even you know those are gonna give you a little more sustainability in my opinion just because they’re they’re a little bit more slow burning and the avocados and coconuts in particular because they have the fats you don’t want to go too high on the fat side because then you’re gonna it’s just gonna start to be mucus forming – mucus forming you’re not gonna feel that good but just a little bit just the right amount of fat every day like I’ve said in the past you slice up those cucumbers slice up those cucumbers and dip them in some guacamole or you make some wraps and you wrap some avocado in there sprout it’s different things where you make a salad there’s guacamole dressing you make a taco salad these are just different ideas you know don’t around with the cashews and the almonds and the nuts and the seeds because that’s just way too inflammatory the avocados yeah yeah then make a little mucus but it’s it’s really not it’s not too heavy on the body as long as you’re well hydrated in the foundation of your diet is hydrating juicy fruits you’re gonna have that nice balance of like alright I’m detoxing but I also feel grounded like I’m kind of moving at a very this feels sustainable I see so many people fail on this lifestyle because they just dive into like 10 20 30 40 day 50 day juice climbs after juice concept it’s like man did you ever did you ever practice eating did you ever practice eating at all you know so that that’s kind of how I like balance I like a nice little thing like that and I’ve done played in both worlds and I just want to give you guys this information because I feel like so many of you are trying so many different things and I feel for you because I was in the same place I was eating like I had no idea what I was doing when I started I was eating like corn chips and raspberries and dipping apples and hummus and I was just like mixing it all together I had no idea what I was doing still eating like a little bit of cooked food the difference between eating a little cooked and eating all raw two different worlds in terms of digestibility clarity all of these different than two completely different worlds and I’m gonna do some more videos with Tim to talk about that because he’s just newly transitioning and he’s will tell you the same exact thing so I hope that this shared some ideas you know check out the coconut wraps if you’re interested in that check out the iridology if you’re interested in that learn more about this stuff you know read some of Jensen’s books if you can get your hands on them all good material just to become very well-versed in and that’s gonna I want you guys to be more confident in this material because ultimately you know that’s what’s going to give you the long term you know advice to win this you know win this one day add one day at a time be beat down you know this you know sort of I’m thinking where we have to do this extended fasting all the time don’t get me wrong there’s a time and a place it’s time in a place you know but it’s important to stay grounded to so this was a grounded video I wanted to make a video just on how to stay grounded and I know I talked a little bit more physically but on the physical level but I’m gonna make some more spiritual levels to spiritual videos to this week so stay tuned and the blessings be I love you guys you’re doing great, blessings to you all

Top 7 Reasons People Fail on a Vegan Diet: Plant-based Pitfalls

Hey guys Aaron and dusty here welcome back to eat move rest and Happy New Year yes happy 2018 so with the New Year here a lot of you are probably thinking it might be time to clean up your diet lose a little bit of weight maybe you’re even entertaining the idea of going vegan after all dr. oz did say that it was like the trend of the year yeah so 2018 it’s only building steam we want to share with you guys seven pip pitfalls or seven reasons that people fail out of plant-based or vegan diet yep so let’s get right into it number one people don’t eat enough calories I know that when I started or we started this journey I got rid of meat and dairy and all of a sudden I was just starving I didn’t know what to eat what’s left right so make sure and get your calories number two too much vegan junk food yes there is such a thing if you go to Whole Foods or any grocery store you’re bound to find plenty of processed packaged junk foods labeled vegan and all the sudden you see the halo 4 minutes glowing light and you grab it snatch it up throw it in your cart bring it home prepare it and you maybe don’t feel any better than you did when you ate your regular burger no Aaron will tell you I am a vegan junk food addict I do my best but every once in a while I just have to order that vegan pizza and eat the whole thing and I feel like dying yeah so steer clear of the junk foods and stick to the Whole Foods plant-based foods yeah more on that later number three being unprepared now this is something that we still struggle with nobody’s perfect but being prepared is going to help I know again when we first started we didn’t know what to buy at the grocery store we didn’t know what to prepare at home and basically we were unprepared and then always hungry yeah so has the same goes if you fail to plan you can plan to fail right number four the fourth reason why people fail at a vegan or plant-based lifestyle is criticism yes and criticism can be harsh it can be downright mean we haven’t had to deal with a whole lot of that especially from our online community it’s been overwhelmingly positive things on YouTube but it can also be just joking around and just giving you a hard time which can also be uncomfortable right so my father-in-law Erin’s wonderful father is the biggest jokester in the world and I don’t know how many vegan slang word nicknames that he’s called me and us but hey we have survived and you will too just stand up to that criticism yes stand firm be confident just walk the walk and eventually people will start to ask you questions right okay so number five money people say it’s too expensive to be vegan and that is simply not true we were just at our families for the holidays and somebody was cooking up a big hunk of meat sitting on the counter we looked at the price and it was $50 a $50 piece of meat do you know how many rice and beans we can buy with that and cases of bananas no kidding we buy beans rice lentils potatoes by the bay it’s so cheap they last forever you can do it for six reason why people fail at a vegan or plant-based lifestyle is impatience patience is a virtue my friends yes it can be tempting to want to go cold turkey and switch overnight and think that everything’s just gonna be like all happy sunshine and rainbows but it can actually set you up for failure and you’ll end up reverting back to how you were before yes so it took me at least two years and it was a little bit quicker but yeah we started out with vegetarian we did it for 40 days then we went back and like it was a two-year journey for us and we’ve right here and we’re happy now but be easy on yourself and have patience and we’re still learning new things every single day that the journey continues and you’re okay with that because we feel great and we’re continuing to feel better right so finally number seven the reason people fail is confusion they’re like what I thought this but this guy says that and we’re all just confused what’s right dr. Oz says one thing Oprah says another thing and ritual dr. Gregers say another thing yeah our best advice is to check your facts yeah for example wheel of nutritionfacts.org dr. Michael Greger all of his research is pulled from medical journals that are not backed by industry it was unbiased it’s gonna be clean pure truth okay so to recap the top seven reasons people fail on a vegan diet are number one not enough calories yes number two vegan junk food number three being unprepared yes number four criticism number five money or budgeting number six my biggest one impatience and number seven confusion yes so if you guys like this video you know the drill give us a thumbs up leave us some love down below leave us a comment hit that subscribe button if you haven’t already and follow us on social media yes at Aaron stanczyk at DB stanczyk and click that Bell that’ll make sure that notifications will be turned on yes you’ll get alerted when we put out new videos here because the next video we’re gonna do for you guys will be the top 7 ways to succeed at a vegan or plant-based lifestyle right so stay tuned we’ll give you all the best answers to this videos problems oh yes happy new year okay crazy and how much of that is just like meat that you have to shave off earth not me yeah alright yeah that’s okay that’s right

Why Most Vegans Fail & How We Can Help

Anji and Ryan discuss a recent study released by the Humane Research Council regarding lapsed vegans & vegetarians, called “How Many Former Vegetarians Are There?” Not only have we seen friends and family fail with the vegan diet, but we’ve had our own failings as well. We chat about these issues, as well as share some of the HRC’s tips for helping yourself and others to get back onto — and stick with — a healthy vegan diet.
