  1. I am already jealous that I don’t have a city to have Dr Greger come speak at.

    I spent quite a few seconds scrolling up and down looking for what you had on Netflix before I figured out that there were a few letters missing.

    Looking at the topics, I want to hear about that manipulative parasite. Good use of the word manipulative to generate interest.

    All that and a clap, clap, clap for Dr Klaper

    1. Hal,

      A few of my friends and I get passionate to the point of OCD about things sometimes and, for instance, I have a friend who vaccinated her dog to death thinking if this is good for him, why only do it once per year.

      I watch another over using essential oils.

      I am more OCD about mentally processing everything, but it is because I genuinely don’t understand things and it turns out that when you don’t understand you make mistakes and get tricked too often.

      I have not developed orthoexia, but I know that my dear friend probably would. I know that it is a real problem. I say it because it sounds good, like the males commenting on the 3 hour erections in commercials. All good until you have one or can’t have one.

      I am so emotional. I just watched To Sir With Love and watched Still I Rise the other day.

      People don’t understand each other’s pain.

      1. Watching Still We Rise, we treat people like animals and we shouldn’t even treat animals like animals.

        History is devastating and I mean almost all of it.

        1. I am not black, but I feel wounded watching the truth about what really has happened.

          I felt the same way watching Eating You Alive and watching things like Koko and Michael the gorillas and watching documentaries of other animals.

    2. Hal, Yesterday’s video about the ‘broccoli rule’ got me thinking more on the orthorexia nervosa topic. Here I was thinking that I just can’t get that fussy about sulforaphane to mess with broccoli sprouts when I realised just how MANY food rules I truly operate with. Fact is, that since I do most of the shopping and cooking in our house there is no one to witness or object to it. Between all (the rigorous demands) that I go through in shopping, storing, cooking food, (for taste and quality) it’s no wonder I am exausted . hmmm, going to have to think about this.

      1. Barb,

        Yes, making sure we don’t get on an unhealthy path is wisdom, but I think that making the switches takes time, but once the switches are habits, it doesn’t take as much time.

        When I was in California, I did something called “Courage Training” and it was Filipino knife fighting training. Didn’t know it would be that until the weekend started. There were different skill sets and exercises we had to master and by the end of the weekend, you get attacked by everybody. But, I have already lost the point, which was that they would divide the room in two groups and the first group was performing the skills awkwardly and the second group was laughing and helping, but then after group 1 had mastered the skill set, the mistake group 2 made was not understanding that they hadn’t learned the skill by watching. They were still beginners and needed to do things half-speed and we’re going to go through exhaustion and embarrassment and maybe even more so because they had mentally expected to be able to learn from Group 1’s mistakes and just do it, but they couldn’t. There is a time for learning and I find out often that I think I have learned something until I try to implement.

        1. Trying to learn the science is such a huge learning curve and there are times when I feel like, wow, I have learned all the vocabulary from cellular respiration and then, I listen to a lecture or read a science article and not one word is used and that is mentally exhausting and so is having to take 5 times longer to prepare a meal than the recipe says and so is finding out my plant milk has oil and all kinds of stupid ingredients when High Carb Hannah had one with soy and water. I had gotten rid of the fats and had lost lots of weight but having the fine print too small on the packages and me buying things anyway is not the way to do things, but having the time and energy to do everything from scratch is the other side of the equation and needing to figure it out and not have my life totally revolve around cooking is the process which I have to be patient about. This really will take time and really is exhausting sometimes.

          1. Deb, your ‘Courage Training’ weekend sounds like it was quite an experience indeed! Good on you!
            I didn’t mean to sound ungrateful or anything. I really am thankful that I aquired research, shopping and cooking skills throughout the years. And as for being a little obcessive (cough) I can’t just not know what I have learned, or not prefer what I clearly prefer, but maybe I can change my focus a bit. I am taking a page out of your book Deb, and going to start trying new things here and there. I am trying steel cut oats tomorrow for example.

            Also, Silk brand soy milk, (organic unsweetened) doesn’t have oil in it I believe. There are several brands. I will check almond milk too.

            1. Good for you, Barb!

              Yes, the Courage Training weekend was eye-opening.

              One of the main messages was that courage is different for each person.

              Some people can wrestle crocodiles, but might need courage to get married. Many people would rather die than do public speaking, according to surveys.

              I did things like hang gliding and found things like that easy. It didn’t take courage.

              My brain is still so broken and when I think about that, I can panic at how broken it is, and at having had it alienate people.

              Social situations, which used to be so easy take so much courage now, so does just facing the day.

              I think of the schizophrenic people I have known and know that people with serious mental health problems are so courageous.

              I have a friend who was in the hospital again this weekend and they said they believe it is autoimmune and she is someone who it will take every ounce of courage just trying to change her diet. She is close to 400 pounds and elderly and poor and she has never succeeded at dietary changes.

              I look at her fear and know that some of us have no choice but to face our fears eventually.

              A woman who took that class had disability and the end of the course was everybody attacking you mentally, emotionally, and physically and you had to not lose your focus or your stance. It was so intense, but that woman was attacked by someone who tried to kidnap her and she fought him off and succeeded.

              I never had to use that part of the lesson, but I honestly think of that course all of the time when my brain is in closer to mental illness mode.

              Sometimes, it is just cannot process mode and I have grown accustom to that and can just drive everybody crazy learning everything, but sometimes it is closer to mental illness and that is harder. I know that I had Diabetes and Homocysteine and lack of Nutrition and too much acid and too much caffeine and other things.

              I have started enjoying trying new foods and that courage box gets checked off now and then.

      2. “when I realised just how MANY food rules I truly operate with.”
        – – – – –

        Hah! Barb, every morning when I chop up a few walnut pieces to put in my hot cereal, I think of you. Aren’t you the gal who said you eat only one walnut a day (if that) because you’re afraid of gaining weight? :-)

        1. hi YR, lol we don’t need to lose weight, but We have been following Dr Ornish’ program re the limited fats. Esselstyn is basically the same, though he doesn’t credit anyone with any self discipline at all. https://www.ornish.com/proven-program/nutrition/ The diet outline there allows for three teensie servings of which flax is one. So I have the ground flax in oatbran or oats , and sometimes flip a walnut in my spinach salad. I wonder how many ‘days’ of fat servings I need to save up to throw a tbsp of tahini in the hommus? :(

          My thing is though that food has to be good or it doesn’t make it to the table. Your description of your 10 dollar smoothie sounded great YR, and thats the first time in years I have wanted to go into town and find something similar. I don’t even care what they put in it (ya just know they will throw in coconut oil ).. it would be great.

  2. Dr. McGregor, Memphis. TN, and the surrounding area, needs you BAD!! Please come to the “Mid-South” and grace us with your knowledge and wisdom.

    1. His name is Dr. Greger. You might be confusing him with the great nutrition doctor, Dr. MCDougall. Yes, I’ve heard that the abysmal physical condition of people in the south is even worse than the rest of the country.

    2. Laughing at McGreger, he has a bit of McDougall and a little bit of McGuyver, perhaps.

      Anyway, I had gotten burnt out cooking for my brother and my dog, but tonight, I watched cooking videos from High Carb Hannah and Mic The Vegan and Happy Healthy Vegan and Dr Greger and I feel ready to just cook for myself.

      Inspired tonight, not by the health aspects, but by the cooking and by not having to please anyone else. It is like coming home and sitting on my couch after a gathering. Relief.

  3. Hi Dr Greger! My name is Carissa Leavitt and I’m the Experience Manager at Whole Health Club in Littleton, CO! We teach plant based to our clients and get a lot of info from How Not to Die and your other videos, and your book and website are on our list of things that we suggest to our clients to look at! Our team would really love it if we could convince you to come to Colorado and speak to our clients!

  4. Hi, Dr. Greger. I met you in Madison, WI a few years ago at the Veg Fest. You signed my copy of HNTD and wrote “…if I can ever help you with you practice…”. Now you can! I am a health coach who works w/i a healthcare system of one hospital and 16 clinics based in Northwest Illinois. I started a POD that meets at the hospital and at least one of our cardiologists is on board. Our town may be too small but if you could come to Rockford, IL or the Quad Cities (IA and IL) that would be close enough and I would bring a bus!

  5. I am always looking forward to anything new coming from Dr. G.! For over a year now am I waiting from him to bring out information about fasting and all the different forms! Nothing yet. I don’t see anything on the new DVD. Do you have any idea when your videos will start to appear? I don’t need it for me but I have a husband to convince!

    1. Hi Martina, keep your eye out for our announcement of the fasting series. Good news – it’s coming out in a few months. Are you subscribed to the newsletter?

      1. Hi Kate Yes, I am subscribed!

        Few months sounds very vague! It could mean two or 10 months!
        I am patient! No choice anyway!
        Thanks for the reply!
        Have a great day
