Genetics loads the gun, but environment pulls the trigger. The way you eat, how much you exercise, how you manage stress, and your exposure to environmental toxins all contribute to things like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and of course, heart disease.

  1. I’ve drastically improved my heart health by cutting soda and dairy milk
    from my diet. Increase water intake. Supplement with BCAA, L-arginine, ALA
    and 5-HTP. Doing at least 30min of cardio per day. My good cholesterol went
    up. Bad cholesterol and triglycerides went down. And I’ve lost 12 pounds so
    far! The weight is slowly coming off and I no longer crave terrible foods.

      Jesse, You don’t need the book. Dr. McDougall has all the information you
      need on his website for Free. I’ll give you the link below. When you click
      on it, you will see all the link on the right hand side. It’s called “Free
      McDougall Program”. Also veganism is very cheap. Stay away from vegan
      meats, vegan cheese, vegan burgers, all this soy, tofu products, or non
      dairy milks. You dont need them to be healthy. Just eat starches, fruits
      and vegetables.

      Good luck and If you have more questions, I am here to help.

    2. Cool! Who doesn’t love free stuff? I haven’t had much of a problem sticking
      to starches, fruits and veg. However, I have a 9 year old daughter, who was
      recently diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic, which is what started me on my journey
      to researching a better diet and that led me to a bunch of vegan YouTubers.
      Their videos have me completely convinced, but I have to admit I’ve relied
      on the vegan meats to get my daughter on board. I’m also really intimidated
      by the team of doctors and nutritionists, who try to practically shove meat
      and dairy down her throat! I’m trying to fully inform myself so I can stand
      up to them at the next nutrition appointment. Plus, I don’t know what to
      expect with her blood sugar if I thrust her suddenly into the high carb low
      fat lifestyle. I know if I let slip my intentions to do so, they will react
      very negatively. So, I’m just researching on the down low in the meantime,
      til her next appointment. I think I’ll make the drastic changes when I
      become more confident in my knowledge and tell them after the fact. BTW
      thank you for taking the time to read and respond to my earlier comments.
      And thanks for spreading the love (veganism)!

    3. +Bradlee Mannyng Well, I think you’ve misunderstood my intentions. I’m not
      saying I’m going to self medicate my daughter like it’s some radical
      experiment. I’m simply trying to ease her transition to a healthy (vegan)
      lifestyle, without intense focus on macros initially. I’m also not
      following anyone’s advice without thoroughly researching the topics
      independently. I’m only grateful to vegan YouTubers for opening my eyes and
      exposing me to legit research that goes a long way to support what they’re
      saying, I’m not following them blindly, nor will I continue to follow the
      misinformed nutritionists! I think it also warrants mentioning the severely
      lacking nutrition education most MDs receive @university. Anyway, Thank you
      kindly for your advice and concern for my daughter’s well being. Well
      meaning advice seems rare on the internet these days.

    4. With Type 1 diabetes as you know she will always need insulin but you can
      decrease the amount of insulin drastically. I suggest you read Dr. Joel
      Fuhrman’s End of Diabetes book. Also Dr. Neal Barnard has a book on
      diabetes. It’s called Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes.
      Also here are some free stuff.

      just type dr joel fuhrman, dr john mcdougall or dr neal barnard and type 1
      diabetes, you will lots of free resources. Remember the key is a high carb
      low protein low fat diet. Fat in the blood is what causes insulin to be
      paralyzed and causes high blood sugars. When you reduce fats, you
      immediately reduce your insulin. It’s so effective, these doctors warn
      people doing vegan diet because they might collapse from hypoglycemia
      because their insulin needs go down so much and when they normal dose of
      insulin, they end up with a very low blood sugar reading.
      Large Flake Oats, Canned(low sodium-if not rinse it under water) or home
      cooked Beans, Frozen Peas, Brown Rice, Cheap veggies and cheap fruits. If
      you eat these with a type 1 diabetes, you will never have to woirry about
      glycemic index or all that other nonsense.

      As far as I know, this guy has type 1. He is a diabetic vegan. Watch his
      videos. Very valuable.

      If your doctor or nutritionists try to label these doctors as quacks, make
      sure to remind them that Dr. John McDougall is in the board of Whole Foods
      as an advisor. He is a licenced regular physcian and an associate
      professor. There is no naturopathy or alternative medicine involved here.
      Type 2 diabetes can be reversed fully and type 1’s insulin needs can be
      reduced tremendously. Good luck. If you need some more info. I am here.

  2. I spent most of my 20s obese and discovered that I needed guidance about
    three years ago. After having my second child, I decided it was time to set
    a healthy example for my kids so I bit the bullet and decided to join
    Weight Watchers. They encourage fresh fruit and veg by making most of them
    “Free” on plan. I tracked my points and made sure I padded every meal with
    a few servings of fruit and veg. Sure enough, the weight came off and I’ve
    maintained for nearly 3 years. I’m not proud of this, but I ended up losing
    much of the weight eating lots of sugar although it came with feeling tired
    and catching colds constantly not to mention yeast overgrowth problems.
    About two years ago, I decided to change my diet again right before a
    physical examination with my doctor, cutting out a lot of added sugar and
    my weight didn’t change but I felt a lot better. In fact, my TSH value went
    from 3.4 to 2.81 over the course of this period. I didn’t realize I had a
    borderline thyroid problem.

    I discovered your videos about a month ago and have been learning to eat
    more healthy fats. I normally steer clear of them because they are very
    high point value in WW but I decided to eat them anyhow now that I know how
    beneficial they are to overall health. I feel more satiated and more
    confident I can keep the weight off for good. Thanks for helping me realize
    that fat is not the enemy.

  3. I take methylcobalamin b12 injections, methylated B-complex multivitamin,
    ride my bike or my recumbent bike everyday, have organic berry smoothies
    everyday, juice fruits and veggies everyday, avoid trans fats, i have the
    MTHFR and pyroluria. The methylated B vitamins lowered my anxiety,
    depression, insomnia and homocysteine which were all through the roof
    before i had my genetic testing through 23 and me. Pure Encapsulations and
    Thorne both make the methylated B-Complexs and multivitamins. I highly
    recommend trying these or get tested to know for sure if you need them.
    Because if you have these genes you can convert regular folic acid or
    vitamin B-6 and B-12. Also get tested for pernicious anemia which my
    grandpa died from. Also you need these B-vitamins to make neurotransmitters
    to make melatonin, serotonin, dopamine, gaba…

  4. Great info, I am eating fat to get thin, all the good oils, little fruit, I
    have to get with the exercise and stress, Thanks!!!

  5. Is coffee better for you when it is light roasted or dark roasted? I know
    that when you usually burn something, the first thing your burning is the
    antioxidants. I have seen sources on both sides and I would like to see
    your opinion. Thank you Dr. Mark Hyman!!

  6. “Active”…relaxation. Coin that as a first heard here idea (for me
    anyway)…you seem to have a few positive oxymorons in your way of life…I
    Love It! Good info Doc!

  7. How do you know if you are swimming upstream. What if you have a doctor
    that totally believes in statins and is the lesser of evils. This leaves me
    to self diagnose. I also don’t want to take statins so I stopped. Leaves me
    a little unnerved.

    1. +I wish I could!! I have been looking for a good one that Takes insurance
      and will take new patients. Who would think it’s sooo hard if not
      impossible to hook up w one

  8. In summary” If your a hyperactive, skinny, flatulence blowing, self
    aggrandizing Prick – You will live forever.
