Thirty days of going vegan is in the books and I have to say this one was a bit more difficult than keto for me as it took me out of my comfort zone. This Vegan 30 day challenge certainly surprised me in several ways and at the end of the day, I think it is a reasonable diet to follow as long as it's planned adequately.
If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We will be back with more Doctor Reacts Series & Responding to Comments so please submit more names of shows/episodes & questions you'd like for me to watch. Love you all!

  • I'm Answering comments on here since the premier ended!

    • Always Smile yes

    • @Madeline Fleming both, take your body weight and times it by 12 that is the calorie intake to maintain your weight. To gain more weight increase that number to loose weight decrease that number. Be proactive in following your food groups and portions. Avoid fast food, they tend to make your diet more protein dependant. Try to remember too much of a good thing is bad for you; If your use to 6 or 7 cups of coffee try to cut back to 1 or 2. It's the same with alcohol if you go out occasionally, energy drinks, sugar and salt. This is just basic advice I've learned, diffinatly consult a nutritionist or dietitian for more in depth meal plans, because if you find that something is not working out as expected they will help you adjust it to fit you because everyone is different.

    • Why is red meat bad?

    • can you please do it video on enhancing your jawline and if that’s even possible. in this video he claims that it’s all fake and now i’m confuses. like this so Doctor Mike can see this. :) thanks as always

    • *Doctor Mike!!!!* This might be off topic BUT.... What do you think of chiropractors? I have heard they are harmful but also really good for you and now I’m a little confused 😅 EDIT: also...this is slightly awkward but wth XD what causes gassiness? XD

  • Holymoly....that intro showed pretty much everything wrong with "veganism"...actually quite a few of the things you highlight in the video as well: highly processed and meat analogue stuff.

  • I came across your channel and I love it.

  • You did it wrong! You didn't mention that you were vegan NEARLY enough. EVERYBODY within a 50 mile radius MUST KNOW!

  • cinnamon toast crunch is not vegan since it contains CTC which contains vitamin D3 which is NOT VEGAN😂🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

  • Is ya maridzzzzz

  • Beans duh

  • THE GAAAAAS It took a year for my body to stop being loud AF after lunch. Going super slowly rather than all at once helps a lot!

  • I have tried Vegan (the plant based whole foods version) several times because I want the health benefits and I have also suffered severe gas and bloating every time I try it. I also have a job where this is not acceptable. If someone can recommend a remedy for the gas I would be willing to try again. Thanks

  • i honestly think it's easier if you're vegan for ethical reasons (which is really the only way to go vegan, what he did was a plantbased diet, but yk) because then you dont want to eat that terrifying whole dead fish that woman had on her plate

  • If I wasn't a vegan I think I would try a Mediterranean pescatarian diet. I love being vegan though. I just lost 22 pounds doing keto vegan for 3 months. I have lost a total of 34 lbs. since July by going back to eating a vegan diet after 6 years of eating meat and diary. I will never go back to eating the standard American diet.

  • That's an awful lot of processed foods. Veganism is actually super cheap and healthy without all of that junk.

  • I think it was the sauces that caused the bloating and flatulence.

  • Okay but like... I want to become vegan not because of a diet but because i don’t like the thought of eating animals

  • Please try Whole Food Plant Based instead.

  • Unless you have a GI condition where plant-based focused diet would put you in the hospital.

  • You should mention that Thrive offers free scholarships for her low income folks.

  • The same about period of flatulence happened to me during the first weeks of veganism 😂😂, but it goes away. This happens because your stomach is getting acclimated to the new high fiber levels.

  • Why is he the cutest 😭

  • The gas and bloating is normal at first. Your gut bacteria completely change so yeah, there are some growing pains. It goes away, ffs.

  • This guy tries the kill yourself diet or the keto diet with zero disclaimers then tries a vegan diet and gives us several warnings because you can't just eat oreos all day. lol

  • 1) try the vegan diet in conjunction with a proper nutritionist and do whole foods! 2) please try the low FODMAP diet! It would be so cool to see.

  • Fun fact: bees aren't harmed when you take their surplus honey, but they ARE harmed when you force them to pollinate almond farms!

  • The "substantial" research studies that support the health benefits of veganism doesn't involve consuming high amounts of processed foods. I'd encourage you to take a challenge with mostly whole foods with very little to no processed foods in the mix. This is cheaper, healthier and a more responsible diet you could recommend to your patients.

  • This guy is a fucking joke.

  • Veganism is not a diet. Veganism is a belief of nonviolence against sentient beings. You want to use PLANT BASED diet.

  • Veganism is a lifestyle and having a plant based diet are two different things.


  • If you stick with a plant-based whole food diet you'll develop a healthy microbiome and you won't have gas and rumbling tummy. And yes eating plant-based Whole Foods is the healthiest. I understand you want to eat fish but they bioaccumulate environmental toxins, you can't escape the Mercury, bmaa, dioxins, and the fact that they don't have fiber or phytonutrients so you're crowding out more nutrient pack Foods, and they have oxidized dietary cholesterol, heme iron, saturated fat, and fish are being over fished so you're contributing to dead zones, if you get farm-raised fish they're going to have high omega-6 ratios so they're going to be inflammatory, just eat plant-based Whole Foods and you'll be fine, and to replace fish just eat nuts and chia seeds that are milled and flax for your essential fatty acids. Sure if you're eating predominantly plant-based you may be able to get away with eating animals and their secretions occasionally but why would you want to when you don't need to, the more you get away from it the more you realize it is disgusting, unnecessary, and moderation isn't good to your health either if you look at more seasoned doctors and scientists they will back to all of this up

    • @Drunk Vegan Gal thanks for commenting you prompted me to read what I originally commented and I realized I had all kinds of talk-to-text typo Madness in there, so I just corrected it and it reads more logically and way better now LOL

    • Recently saw that 46% of the plastic garbage in our oceans is discarded and broken fishing nets. Time to stop eating fish (if you have an option - like you go to a grocery store, with some money, and buy your food). Plus, by-catch. Isn't it like 7 pounds of sea creatures with no value are killed for every one pound of sea life people want to eat? Disgusting!

  • I found the fact that you got GI issues when you switched to a vegan diet interesting. It's well known that sometimes people on a vegan or vegetarian diet will lose the ability to process animal based fats and protein and can end up with GI issues if they ever have a cheat day or eat a dish with meat by-product. This is actually one of the main reasons vegans are so concerned with contamination because even trace amounts of animal fat can cause physical issues for someone who has gone on a completely vegan diet.

  • Trying out a vegan diet for 30 days with "expectations" may not be the best way, especially if your mind is not that strong enough. Some will automatically fail. At least you stuck with 30 days. Since every body is different, sometimes the body takes longer than 30 days to improve. I struggled the first few months, mainly because I wasn't fully prepared. Going extremely strong not eating meat over five years now. In contrast, not everybody can go on a vegan diet due to certain food allergies. There is no best diet out there. It depends on an individual. If you bring in the environmental and ethical values, then the wisest choice is vegan. Of course, that's a different topic.

  • Am allergic to nuts therfore no veganism for me and also I be meataterian.

  • Dr. Mike I love your channel! But please please please please give us dietitians (or in my case future dietitian) some credit. The problem with finding a "nutritionist" to help with dietary issues is that anyone can call themself one, even if they have no nutritional training. Your friendly local dietitian on the other hand has gone to a 4 year college for nutrition, food science or dietetics; completed a dietetic internship; and passed a national exam. These are the people, along with your doctor or primary care provider, that people should be going to for help. Thanks!

  • Can you tell us what the Mediterranean diet is???

  • I love how uneducated you really are as a doctor I’m is causing you to have gas because you’re obviously in the wrong foods and you’re obviously eating more fiber than your body is used to

  • Vegan diet is much healthier

  • Another uneducated doctor that does vegan wrong lol.

  • It's nice seeing more and more people becoming vegan now cause of global warming and animal rights. A thing that actually annoys me is that quite a lot people doesn't know correctly how the meet is produced. They don't know how the slaughtering works and everything. People have to understand how it works.

  • „I didn’t force the bees to make the honey“ ... moving forward, someone should always take away the food you just ordered or prepared for yourself, so you’re always left with an empty plate when you actually intended to eat. I mean, no one forced you to prepare or buy your own meal, right? 🤦🏽‍♂️

  • I don’t count honey doc!

  • I'm sorry but u r just whining. Vegan is not that hard. U did keto which is very likely to be nutrient deficient, but as a product of ur society u have been conditioned to like meat, u liked the diet. I do think u r exaggerating the "problems". Basically, I'm quite disappointed by this video and ur "artistic performance"

  • Didn’t eat enough calories, ate vegan processed foods.... Blames vegan diet for getting a cold, gas and bloating Lol cmon mike a WELL planned WHOLE foods plant based diet is healthy. Say it with me WELL planned WHOLE foods🤦🏽‍♀️🤣

  • re: eating honey and maintaining veganism - I think something about the vegan community that’s really great is that we’re all just doing our best, so while it can seem like a bunch of hateful people who are on the attack, at the core it’s really just people who want to do what’s right. If you’ve been vegan for years and you realize that the sugar you use is refined with bone char, all you can do is buy different sugar. You don’t lose your Vegan Street Cred for the last however long you’ve been vegan. Similarly, if you’ve been vegan for 2 weeks and you realize that honey is an animal product, all you can do is move forward and continue doing your best. The other thing is that you were drinking it for medicinal purposes. Many vegans take prescription medication that has been tested on animals or contains animal products. However, this can be likened to an oxygen mask in an airplane - you put on your own before you help someone else put on theirs. We serve others best when we’re the best versions of ourselves. Honey isn’t vegan, but being 100% vegan in today’s society is impossible unless you homestead. It’s all about doing your best.

    • @Keana Dianne Thanks for the suggestion I will givi it a go 👍🏻

    • Ivana Miravalle I really recommend stevia drops! As someone who is extremely picky and misses honey to death, stevia is the only thing that sweetens the same way sugar does in my opinion.

    • Thank you for this pearl of humanity from a 2 months vegan. I stopped using refined sugars 2 yrs ago and once gone vegan I was worried about my honey sweetened tea( and yes I did try agave and maple syrups but I just don't like the combo). It's not about being perfect, but doing your best to reduce your footprint and the harm you cause to other living beings. Some may view the vegan community as a club that kicks you out at the first mistake, and though some vegan people don't forgive, as a whole we are just here to improve.

  • I got to admit that as a vegan the hardest obstacle I face is peer pressure. Having to choose restaurants base on my eating habits and me appearing as a picky eater is not the best part of this lifestyle. But I love veganism, and I dont think I could ever go back. Once you are used to this life style everything balances and is simpler. Also, I rarely get bloating or flatulences.

  • This is 12 minutes of me laughing picturing Doctor Mike holding in farts all day.

  • Haha i was vegan for 10 years, ethical reasons. I annoyed so many people, strained my relationships, and made myself miserable. Its true, its better for the animals and the planet, but id rather just be flexible and do what i can when i can. Take it easy live freely 😊😊😊

  • When I went vegan, my stomach was upset for more than 6 months. But now I'm fine. My SO, when he made the switch, he had insane stomach and gut issues! And again, a couple months later, he was fine.

  • 'I didnt milk the bees for honey' Hahahah I love that

  • You know whats harder than the vegan diet? The NOT EATING diet. Aka fasting.

  • It would be much more interesting if you could make review of Dr. Gregers presentation:

  • I remember talking to a nutritionist at a hospital and mentioned that I may be interested in going vegan. She told me I would not get enough fat in my diet. Not b12, not even protein, FAT.

  • Hummus Avocado and Peanut Butter r vegan super jummy and high in calories

  • I challenge you to do a 30-day diet challenge that does not contain any single-use plastics - no plastic wrap, no plastic bags, and no plastic containers.

  • All vegetables cause gas and bloating.

  • I'm vegan, someone tried to trick me into eating meat...

    • Harry Potter Eye ball I’m not vegan but that’s shitty

    • You're vegan and like Harry Potter. I like you :)

  • Honey is considered vegan in India, where vegans are found everywhere the definition of vegan is so different in first world countries

    • Indians are vegetarian not vegan, get your facts straight

  • l am not totally a vegan but a mixture with more bias towards non processed food which is very abundant here in India

  • yayayayayayay this is awesome !!!!!!!!! Vegan diet is amazing do another video !!!

  • You ate so many packaged and heavily processed foods. No wonder many vegans are so unhealthy.

  • Try the Autoimmune protocol diet
