Fasting Webinar Next Week

There’s one more day to register for my webinar on intermittent fasting on July 26th at 2pm ET. Registration ends July 19th midnight (ET). I’ll cover the pros and cons of calorie restriction and water-only fasting for weight loss, alternate-day fasting, body fat, longevity and metabolic health, the 5:2 diet, fasting-mimicking diets, and time-restricted feeding – and I will be answering questions live throughout. The focus for this webinar will be on weight control, but I am planning to do a second webinar in September on water-only and Buchinger modified fasting for other conditions such as blood pressure, autoimmune disease, and cancer.

All of the information will eventually be available for free on, but for a donation to our 501c3 non-profit, you can hear it all first and ask questions right on the spot. To register for the intermittent fasting webinar, visit

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who attended the webinar. If you missed it, the digital download is available here:

  1. Nobody posted yet? Okay, I’ll add some drivel. :-)

    I have two statement t-shirts. One is green with yellow letters, and says “Grass Fed.” (Some people ask if that means dope; I say nope). The other one is purple, with white letters saying “End the Disclosure.” Below it is a UFO ship.

    One of my neighbors has a shirt that says “Why Am I So Good?” I told him he should get it changed to “Damn, I’m Good!”

    Dr. G., how does it feel to be so infamous [sic]? So many adoring groupies bowing to you and everything. Even though all the $$ is said to go to your NF organization, I’ll bet you make a good living (sure, you do!) But I also think fame is more important to you than big bucks. It must be great to be recognized on the street.

    Nevertheless, I’m sure you’ll remain humble. Not like the slut who slept with every man she met, was a druggie, an alcoholic, robbed banks….. And — last but not least — was always puttin’ on airs!” (The joke went something like that, can’t remember it exactly.) *_^

    1. I think you probably don’t need any statement t-shirts.

      People who make statements as freely as you do often do not need them.

      1. If you were addressing me, Deb….well, we’re kindred spirits, aren’t we! Who “let’s it all out” as much as you do!

        But if you were talkin’ to Dr. G., he’s just trying to sell them to the folks, not necessarily wear any himself.

        IMO, we can never have too many statement t-shirts. My neighbor has a few others that he wears too: Love Peace Joy; Obsessed; and Just Do It. I told him the next time I see him wearing “Just Do It,” I’m going to lunge at him and tickle him under the chin. *_^

        1. Laughing.

          Yes, we both do just speak our minds.

          One of my statement t-shirts was

          “To be is to do”—Socrates
          “To do is to be”—Jean-Paul Sartre
          “Do be do be do”—Frank Sinatra

        2. I think though I don’t understand your contempt for Dr Greger.

          When I look at his work, I don’t see someone courting fame.

          I see someone writing 800 page books and listening intently to his audience and trying to save people’s lives.

          I see a list of books he is writing and he took on topics which were not nearly about fame at all.

          Fame is a vehicle to get the Whole Food Plant Based message out.

          If he wanted fame, he could be moving to California and making bigger choices toward television and other media.

          You are seeing an opening and are volunteering to be the one to put him and his young people down.

          What surprises me is that you actually cared about Dr Fuhrman and that pleasantly surprises me, but I don’t understand why you hang out at this lace and look down on the host.

          If you didn’t catch on that this man just spent a year in a library with one book and is translating his videos and books to change the world.

          The cause is what matters to him and to these kids. That is so obvious to me.

    2. Dr Mirkin has an article on the ‘grass fed’ meat myth which is worth reading

      Are you going to storm Area 51, wearing your other T-shirt?

      Care to enlighten us as to just why you visit this site anyway? Given your own personal beliefs (astrology, medical mediums, statements allegedly made by channelled supernatural entities) and your regularly-expressed opinions about Dr Greger, it wouldn’t seem to be quite your cup of tea.

        1. YR,

          I am not asking you to leave.

          Sorry if it sounded like that.

          Maybe I don’t understand what you are looking at when you come to this site.

          I don’t see a lot of high fives for Dr. Greger. Lots of times people are putting him down or sharing a contrary opinion to his or accusing him of being anti-pot or pro-pharma or other things. If he was motivated by getting a sycophantic response, the internet is not where you get it.

          When I think of this site, I think of the fact that I just gave a video giving hope to someone with Parkinson’s and I gave another video giving hope to someone who has an autistic son. This site promotes all the doctors evenly. This man is clearly a friend to Dr. Ornish, Barnard, Esselstyn, Fuhrman, Colin, etc. There are some big feuds out there, but he isn’t in the middle of it. He was helping Dr. Fuhrman and he was just in a Q&A panel with Colin and I see someone who is so focused on the cause of trying to change the world and I don’t hear him saying, “I am hoping to have a show like Dr. Oz or get on The Doctors”.

          I hear him saying, “I am working trying to get the doctors to have more training in nutrition so that they can prevent their patients from needing surgery.”

          I am sorry that I hurt your feelings. I didn’t mean to and I know that both of us do say what we are thinking and I respect that about you.

          I respect that you would have a statement shirt saying, “Grass-fed” and that you would say that on this site. You have a strong personality and strong opinions and a good sense of humor. I am not trying to drive you out of this place.

          I just wonder if it is that you are so passionate about “Grass-fed” maybe that you look down on Dr. Greger for being vegan or something unrelated to what you said?

          Or maybe you just experience this site differently than I do.

          I get so much out of the information and genuinely look at what these young people and Dr. Greger are doing and they might save the lives of the people around me and I am so grateful.

          1. “I respect that you would have a statement shirt saying, “Grass-fed” and that you would say that on this site.”
            – – – – –

            One more thing (truly, just this one more thing):

            Unbelievable! I never in a million years connected my “grass fed” t-shirt to anything other than eating grass-type foods! The person wearing the shirt is the eater. Where did you people get the idea it was supposed to represent grass-fed beef, or something? I eat grass type foods (greens, etc.) — certainly no beef. And right away Fumbles, etc. thinks of grass-fed beef? Why would that be, because he misses it?

            This time I’m really outta here. I too am tired of the persona I’ve created for my silly self. *_^

            1. “Unbelievable! I never in a million years connected my “grass fed” t-shirt to anything other than eating grass-type foods! The person wearing the shirt is the eater. Where did you people get the idea it was supposed to represent grass-fed beef, or something? I eat grass type foods (greens, etc.) — certainly no beef. And right away Fumbles, etc. thinks of grass-fed beef? Why would that be, because he misses it?”

              Why would that be? Oh, come on, just Google ‘grass fed’ and it is hit after hit on sites discussing grass fed beef or milk from grass fed cows vs milk from non grass fed cows.

              If you are being straight up about this rather than just stirring the pot, you must be about the only person in North America who doesn’t connect the term ‘grass fed’ with beef.

              1. Good lord, yes, we know all about google.

                I bought the shirt at a farmer’s market where they sold fruits and veggies. I get a lot of compliments from people who understand that the wearer of the shirt if the one who is “grass fed.” Yes, I repeat: unbelievable!

                So why wouldn’t the shirt read “grass-fed beef” otherwise? Or, “I eat grass-fed beef”? *sigh*

          1. I am trying to be light-hearted, but I will tell you that my cousin was told today that he is terminal and I want to rewind time to a year and 3/4 ago when I wanted to have him try vegan to see if he could avoid dialysis and they wanted him to not do it.

            Life is way too short and way too tragic to sweat the small stuff.

        2. YR

          I am not suggesting that you have had more farewell performances than Frank Sinatra, but you have said this before.

          1. YR,

            I have only ever seen that term used with animals, so thank you for correcting me if they use it about fruits and vegetables.

            It was a statement t-shirt and I thought you were making a statement about grass-fed beef or milk or yogurt from grass-fed animals.

            I don’t understand your emotional response right now.

            I do understand that you are free to come and go and you are welcome here. There isn’t anyone bullying you or blackballing you.

            I just don’t like it when you slander the doctor and his young people and I know that you think of that as if people are worshiping him or something, but I actually am following almost every doctor I can find. Dr. Greger has such helpful information in such an entertaining format that he is where I start from. I go from him to PubMed, back to here, back to PubMed and then I go to all the other doctors, then to people like Mic The Vegan and everybody else and then to people like Jeff at Vegsource and come back here and try to integrate all of the information.

            I have relatives dying and a sick dog and I look at your emotions and wonder if you are going through things. If so, I am sorry for making it harder for you.

        3. If you never come back, I want you to know that your statement t-shirt process was helpful to me.

          I sat down last night and thought about what my statements would be and I thought of a few which resonated.

          One would be the saying


          I have an 8 year old who needs to learn that as a concept.

          One would be Mother Teresa’s poem

          Do it anyway

          I am not Catholic, but Mother Teresa and St Francis are 2 of my favorite thinkers.

          And, no, I am not aiming that at you. It really is something I value.

          So, if you go, just BeYOUtiful.

          1. I had a different relative get in a motorcycle accident yesterday. Waiting to hear the report.

            I have such good concepts from this site for MS, Parkinson’s, Autism, Heart disease, Cancer and I have all the gadgets for pain relief, but at that point when everybody is in pain, my faith is what I have.

  2. Was watching the cherry video about sweet bing cherries and wondering if we now know for sure if it was the anthocyanins that help with pain.And has there been a study comparing anthocyanin levels and pain reduction.Would blueberries and raspberries work as well fresh/frozen/freeze dried/dried…Thanks!

    1. I did find a chart but it doesn’t cover cherries

      Table 2
      (Because to link to the website I must say this)
      This link leads to a website provided by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. I am not affiliated or endorsed by the Linus Pauling Institute or Oregon State University.

      Regarding the app nice that you will update it but because not everybody has the goal to lose weight please include the gaining weight and maintaining weigh option that can be switched along the way.A customisable app would be best with room for extra additions as we all have different needs.Thanks!

  3. I am adjusting to the new glasses.

    Are they very new?

    I watch so many of your videos that I cannot tell.

    I am a fan of every black t-shirt with bright colored vegetables!

    Black really makes those colors POP!

    But I have to wait to buy any swag.

    On the very good side, I am actually losing weight.

    I don’t want to buy the wrong size.

    1. I like the Daily Dozen t-shirt, too.

      That would be a good one for me.

      I might be able to subliminally suggest for people to eat the top words on the list.

  4. I feel like the glasses make you look more serious.

    Or, you might have been in a much more serious mood than normal in the interview.

    Maybe both.

  5. I think the glasses are wrong for you.

    That is my ten cents too many.

    Your eyes are one of your very, very, very good features and the other glasses emphasized them better.

    There is something about these, which bring the emphasis away from your eyes toward your whole face.

    It is not good for your eyes to disappear.

    I am saying that for next time and I will love watching you no matter what glasses you have on, but particularly because you go back and forth between facial hair and clean-shaven, the kind eyes are the continuity.

  6. Dr. Greger, I’d like to apologize to you for that thoughtless first post. It was cruel and inhumane treatment on my part, and there was no need for it. “When she was good, she was very very good, but when she was bad she was hor-r-r-id.”

    As you are a Scorpio, though, I know you are able to weather the storms. Lots of luck to you with your ongoing mission.

    1. YR
      I like you! Yes, you are often flippant and irreverent but you do have a kind heart and I have witnessed that many times on the forum.
      You have been involved in answering questions and helping me and others understand some of the issues raised that seem unclear.
      Stay the course!

      1. Awww, you’re too sweet, Lida. :-) Fumbles and Ruth-Ruthie would disagree with you, however. :-/

        I was in a bitchy mood when I posted the above love letter to Dr. G. Major dental work looms ahead for me, and hearing news like that would put anybody in a miserable state of mind.

        All that candy eating when I was a kid….karma time, and how.

  7. Would love to buy your t-shirts but like most of my health minded friends am boycotting US made goods while your country is under such a disgraceful regime….let’s hope that changes soon.

  8. 2 fun knee, I love the droll humor and acerbic wit. More please!!! Even witty bantering and bickering has a place. It all comes down to bettering our lives and the lives of others via a honest and open minded quest for natural wellness. I say thank you Doc G and team.
