    Yes, after losing 55.5 pounds in a year, I hit a plateau on the (vegan) 16/8 IM fasting plan even after eliminating added salt and oil. I'm eliminating all starches for 10 days and 6 days in I've lost almost a pound a day so .. changing things up does help. Thanks. 🌹

    Really well spoken; calm, clear and rational, you make calorie density a topic that is accessible for everyone to understand 😊

    If you eat fruit and a little cereal for breakfast, then at lunch a large bowl (Mixing bowl size) of salad w/ nuts and flaxseed – on the side a medium bowl of chili beans (any stewed beans or thick soup) you will be satisfied. Then you do it again at dinner, believe me, you'll feel satisfied. Calorie restriction doesn't mean small portions, it doesn't mean you have to feel deprived. So don't misunderstand the term "Calorie restriction" because this way of eating is calorie restricting. Thank you green vegetables for filling up my belly with so few calories. So now rest assured that you don't need to count calories … your good, sit back relax and have a great day

    I have a few questions. Do you use canned beans or do you cook them yourself? Also, the dates you use in your oat clusters, do thy have added Sugar? I live in a small town and an only find the ones with dextrose. Oh and where do you buy your nuts?

    My mind can't compute this…and I find it frustrating. Talking numbers is like talking Martian to me! So overall, if taking in the first 4 bars….one would be eating approx 1500 calories a day? Not that I know what that looks like…I have never been into calories or calorie counting. If I have done anything..it has been weighing food and that's it. So all this calorie per pound stuff is going in one ear and out the next. Is there somewhere where I can find the Dummies version to understanding this?

    Dillon, I just found your videos today, and they're awesome. I started with your comparison of Dr Fuhrman and McDougall diets, and you really lifted a burden for me, because I've been agonizing about the very issues you tackled. This video is also spot on! Thank you very much.

    A major problem I have with eating this way is the extreme lethargy I experience as a result. The high amounts of magnesium in the right foods make my thinking foggy and slow when I'm at work. I have an office job and my concentration has not been up to par. I really wish I could remedy that.

    This doesn't seem simple. It seems obsessive and very restrictive, especially to someone recovering from an eating disorder. In a perfect world we wouldn't be surrounded by non whole plant-based foods, but that is not at all the reality.

    *QUESTION TOWARDS THE END – PLEASE SOMEONE HELP IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS*
    I eat a generally whole-food-plant-based-vegan diet. A typical breakfast for me is 3 bananas + 2-3 tablespoons cacao powder + 2 tablespoons hemp seeds + upto half cup leafy greens + 2-3 drops peppermint essential oil + cold herbal tea. This will keep me both full and satiated until lunch or mid afternoon and then I eat loads of fruit and veggies.
    My query though is this:
    I menstruate every 3 weeks and increasingly for the week beforehand I AM STARVING! I need to eat every 2-3 hours, unless it's fruit and vegetables and then it's constantly; on that basis, how on earth am I to satisfy my true hunger in that week and keep it lower calorie density?
    I have been eating lower calorie density for 2 weeks then on that 3rd week having more medium calorie density foods to try and manage the "problem". Does this seem like a good solution or can you suggest something I haven't thought of?

    How about making a video about dressings. You could call it 'Easy Oil-free dressings that dont totally suck'. Crappy dressings are my largest impediment to enjoying a giant salad or vegetables without oil. Thanks for considering.

    I cook with oil every night (on an almost completely plant-based diet) and I struggle to keep weight on though I'm over 60 years old. That's why I never cut it out even though the fashion today is to call it a poison. I should add, registered dietitians– the professionals that actually study nutrition their entire careers– don't discourage the use of oil, they focus on its healthy properties and say to keep the amounts reasonable.

    I appreciate how you elaborate on why certain foods in moderation can be triggers or can cause us to eat more than if we eliminate them, ie-salt and nuts. Very helpful

    13:01 “You’ve got to avoid them at all costs. They can take your delicious meal of whole starches—400 to 600 calories per pound—and ruin the whole thing by making them closer to 800 calories per pound per pound.

    This is a very instructive video, however, the whole idea of being careful not to add anything to your food that might make it taste better and therefore cause you to want to eat more is just sad. That's just as unsustainable as calorie counting.

    Nonsense! Campbell, McDougall have their heads in the sand, they are 40 years behind on research!!! I was foolish enough to follow McDougall, Campbell and Greger and did their diet to the tee for a full year — I was bloated from all the beans and hard to digest carbs and I never lost a single pound in a year. I remained 100 lbs overweight. Dr. Jason Fung changed my life. I lost 30 pounds in my first month using Keto and Intermittent fasting.

    I am wondering about bioavailability of fat soluble vitamins with no oil in diet. I think there was a study on this. Just wondering if I am missing out. Great videos.

    This video is profoundly simple and clear. Funny how I was not losing weight, despite being at least 20-30lbs over what I should be.

    I decided to give up all be processed sugars and make very simple foods. I just changed to eating primarily beans, rice, potatoes, vegetables, and some fruit. I can easily eat just 1500-1800 calories a day in one or two big meals and last throughout the day. Now I'm thinning out without hardly thinking about it.

    You are right, a healthy diet where you barely need to think about it is how you do it. If you are fixated on it you tend to fall.
