  • After discovering Dr Mike I downloaded the life sum app and started to watch my diet and I am exercising more. He’s informative and inspirational! Love him!

  • make a video to gain weight diet

  • Then where is the 201 video ?

  • Atention! This app is a complete scam. I signed up an had 30+ spam emails from them within 15 minutes. Some even in russian. It only stopped because I blocked their entire server from contacting my Email. Maybe their servers were hacked, I don't know, but the app is currently definitely not safe!

  • Can you do a video on how to quit caffeine? (Unless you already did and I missed it) I've been drinking coffee since high school and have HORRIBLE withdrawal when I try to quit - including anxiety and nightmares. I just can't do it.

  • Question: what's the difference between nutrients and vitamins? Is there a difference?

  • Super helpful and simple to understand

  • Can you talk about insuline ?

  • Hey Dr. Mike! I greatly appreciate how you present health information to your fans to help them stay happy and healthy! Because I know you care about your viewers, I want to bring to your attention an issue with this video. I have a friend with an eating disorder and they have shared with me their struggles with calorie counting, "healthy" eating and how triggering it is for their disorder. The mantra at the clinic they went to to get help was, "All food is good food" and that was used to counteract much misinformation on what is healthy that encouraged them in their eating disorder to restrict. Though the information in this video is helpful, I would request you put a caution in the title for those who have an eating disorder, warning this video may be triggering for them. I know this is just one way to view this and considering you are a doctor, I would love to hear your thoughts on how to help those who struggle with eating disorders? How do you approach this struggle? Have you run across that with your patients? Thanks for your time and consideration on this. :) Love you and your content. And I'll be praying you stay happy and healthy.

  • Hi mike I just wanna ask what is ur height and ur weight. U are a rockstar doctor

  • Do the Lifesum app also track our most important macronutrient--the alcohol?

  • @Doctor Mike just give me your workout regiment and I’ll be good to go 😂

  • Never use an online calculator to calculate your maintenance calories, there's so many factors they dont take in to calculate it (activity level, metabolism rate, any hormonal imbalances, lifestyle etc), . If you want your true maintenance levels all you have to do is track your calories for 2 weeks (assuming your weight has been steady for the past few months) and average it out, thats your maintenance level for looking the way you currently do based on your current activity levels. From there you can adjust up or down, depending on your goals

  • During a weight loss journey, are there any ways to restart weight loss when you experience a plateau? Thanks Dr. Mike.

  • His gains aren’t enough for me to listen to this

  • Doctor Mike binge 2019 ❤️

  • Just got the app, loving it!

  • 0:22 I will be using Thingamabobits as a word now only because Dr. Mike used it 😁

  • Thanks for the Chappelle/Lol John clip :) Talk more about what actually makes an active lifestyle. I run 25-30 miles a week with 2-4 days of moderate core.

  • Please do a video about the products you use!! Like deodorant, cologne, shower products etc.

  • How could a man be so fucking perfect??😍

  • Nutrition 201 please!!! I wanna learn more

  • The title should be the main point in the video u fucker

  • So when will the nutrition 201 release?

  • All I have to do is use the restroom, I look skinny even though my bmi is high, but who cares?

  • Can you do a review of Orangetheory Fitness? I’m interested to hear your thoughts. Thank you for making difficult concepts easy to understand!

  • For the majority of overweight and obese people, including myself for the last six months. Eat less. Move more. Keep away from sugar (you don't need it).

  • I typed hope to g and youtube already knew what I wanted

  • where is nutrition 201? i need it badly

  • How would I know if I wanted a high protein diet

  • That's why I love cycling. Eat as much as you want and everything gets used up after an hour long exercise.

  • Did I miss how you lose fat and not muscle?

  • Thanks for this video! I love it! I'm gonna follow all the tips! I liked the app!

  • I honestly haven't eaten sugar or starches, processed foods or restaurants foods in over 3 years. I feel amazing. I eat real food, no grains , and my health has improved miraculously.

  • The carbs part 😂

  • This video was so fun and informative, THank you :) Please keep up the great content

  • Your underarms are so sweaty. You should make those videos without shirt Dr Mike.

  • Is there a nutrition 201 video coming soon?

  • There is a lot of reasonable sounding bullshit in this video. To lose weight you just have to reduce calories? Do you realise that your body adapts to calorie restriction? 1500 kcals of cookies is not the same as 1500kcals of "Mediterranean diet"! Not just because of the lack of micronutrients but because of the hormonal effect if insulin spikes and fat storage signalling. Bruh, do you even nutrition?

  • Nice video,just wondering why You wanna lose weight?

  • For God Sake METRIC!!!!! I stop watch watching your videos as soon as you start talking about pounds and inches.

  • no you should actually treat your body as nature intended and do intermittent fasting and keto it's more important to lower your carbs and insulin fat storing hormones to burn fat for fuel then you count the fats and protein after

  • Bro, if you made a book called nutrition 101, it would be New Yorks best seller

  • Where that nutrition 201 video at?

  • 1 like = 1 day of working out 💪🏼🏋🏼‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🙌🏽🤞🏼💦

  • I wish that he would have mentioned utilizing registered dietitians! Registered dietitians are professionals who underwent academic and professional requirements to become food and nutrition experts and they are more than happy to help people on their weight loss journey.

  • "Doctor Mike's Nutrition Triangle 101 Education Basic Thingamabobbits" sounds like Wish wrote it.

  • Quick question, soda or beer ?

  • You have a camera inside yoru fridge? lol

  • what about metabolism? calories in calories out is just temporary when I'm not totally wrong. if your body adapts to the lesser calorie intake, you won't lose any weight and you'll get back to the start, isn't it? 🤔

  • Is a doctor.... doesn’t like carbs. What. Carbs aren’t the enemy!! Your body needs them too. As a dietetic major, that line disturbed me

  • Yay!! Love this explanation! This is my field of expertise. I'm a certified lifestylecoach in the Netherlands, and I cringe on seeing how we (dutchies) are also getting more and more overweight with all consequences of bad health and expensive health care.. Healthy nutrition and exercise is the main key to solve many problems ❤️

  • Only 1 day rest of my muscle I lost alot.

  • I'm late to the party but I'd love to hear how alcohol is considered a macronutrient..... HOW???

    • @midnightlightthevamp well that's kind of true, but as you say, our bodies 'burn' the energy aka calories of alcohol. Alcohol has almost as much calories as fat! So drinking a glass of alcohol gives as much energy as eating a sandwich for example.

    • I ended up doing some research and it makes sense. Basically, the Body interprets alcohol as a toxin so it burns that before anything else. So, if there's alcohol in your system, you process that first and anything you'd eaten is left as fat deposits. It's got less to do with calories and more to do with the way the body metabolizes it.

    • And calories = energy

    • Because macronutrients are the things we can digest and that provide us calories. And alcohol does contain (a lot) of calories.

  • HI Doctor Mike. Just recently got results of Insufficient levels of Vitmain D. I have dark skin, is there any other way aside from vitamins to increase my levels. Also, can low Vitamin d make you tired and achy all the time? Thanks.

    • Good luck with your deficiency, I've been struggling with it for nearly 20 years. I am not very dark....pretty light skin Latin girl, I get sun, eat pretty healthy and have never been able to get my levels high enough to be in the normal range even with treatment.

  • i sometimes eat ones a day since i started working, is it bad? 🤔 it happens several times a month

  • It'd be nice if the field of nutrition weren't an absolute mess.....

  • You skipped info on starches. I was intrigued. I thought I was going to learn something I didn't know. But you skipped it. Did I tell you that you skipped it?

  • One other thing to mention is calorie density. By eating more veggies and beans for example you can eat large portions but won't get as many calories as meat, cheese, fat. ALSO include protein and fats at every meal in order to feel satisfied and full

  • 💪💖💖💖👍
