    1:49 – Exercise is spelled wrong. In case you wanted to fix it 🙂

    This is one of my favorite videos of yours – OF ALL TIME. I like when your
    videos are positive with no bashing of others :)

      Wow glad to hear it! Thanks for correction, darn can’t change it now. No no
      I don’t ever ‘bash’ others 🙂 I give my constructive criticism, I guess
      some may label that bashing but I label it being real.

    @Silvine Silver you made it so I couldn’t reply to your comment -_- so I
    will reply here. I had nearly 3months off ANY exercise due to a badly
    fractured toe on this lifestyle and I actually lost weight lol. Of course
    if you eat a high fat diet you will blow out because it’s just not the diet
    that suits our human physiology! We are high carb creatures.

    I have massive rebound weight 50lbs! I’m still on the course, but I do hope
    I slim down one of these days. It is very un-motivating to do this and gain
    a bunch of weight, but I will keep it up for a few more years. If I’m still
    clinically overweight or obese then I will judge the 30bad diet a failure
    for me. I think 3 years is a fair test.

      I don’t think you should do it for a few more years. If a diet isn’t
      working for you and making you gain weight, you should probably stop it.
      There’s no reason to follow a diet that made you gain so much weight. You
      could just less and you’ll loose some weight. Don’t follow a diet that
      makes you miserable. Just eat how much your body needs. Don’t eat excessive
      amounts of food just because Freelee says so. Everyone needs a different
      amount of calories.

    Great video! Even though I’m relatively new to this lifestyle, I feel like
    I’m having this conversation with people on a daily basis. Let’s eliminate
    carb fear!

    What are you on about. Brain washing? common belief is Calories in calories
    out, dont how what I said is brain washing? And yes replace all the carbs
    and sugar with fat and your heart disease factors will go down. That’s a
    fact because fat don’t make you fat. Paleo diet is the only true diet we
    are supposed to eat, no refined grains. We are not supposed to be vegans as
    animals with incisors like us are supposed to eat flesh. You can believe a
    unqualified random YouTube person or you can believe someone qualified with
    research back into the 1800’s to prove it

      Humans being omnivores and how animals are raised are two different things

      We aren’t omnivores. We are frugivores, basic human anatomy. We have long
      digestive tracts aswell as mostly blunt teeth, similar to frugivores.
      Compare our teeth to omnivores and there is a huge difference. Also when
      comparing stomache acidity our stomaches aren’t as acidic as omnivores. The
      canines we have are to help chew our food. Also they ate meat back in the
      day to survive. They didn’t have grocery stores where food is always
      available. Nor mass production of fruits and vegetables, they did what they
      had to do to survive. We aren’t struggling to survive anymore so why do we
      need to eat meat? You’re using a confirmation bias to justify the fact that
      you WANT to eat meat, and probably help you sleep better at night
      considering you’re aware that the animals are treated poorly.

    Poor information! Yes, eating fruit over McDonalds is much more healthy,
    and eating lot’s of fruits has endless health benefits. BUT meat itself is
    not at all ‘toxic’ for your body. You need to brush up on your science and
    read some published research paper before preaching stuff to millions of
    people. By cutting out meats, you are also starving your body from crucial
    vitamins and especially amino acids, BCAA’s and other essential forms of
    fat that are crucial for your body. Also, by having such a low fat diet,
    you are screwing up your hormones because fats are NEEDED for hormone
    control. Please, read proper research studies before spouting rubbish!

      My friend it seems you need to brush up on your science! Seeing you like to
      talk science, please link me to the peer reviewed study that shows me we
      are starving ourselves of vitamins and amino acids by eating a vegan diet.
      I know I will be waiting forever because that’s BULLSHIT 😉 There is
      nothing found in animal products that you can’t find in plant foods and
      best of all the amino acids aren’t second hand recycled toxic animal amino
      acids!

      +Freelee the Banana Girl Sorry, I didn’t word my comment very well. You CAN
      get all these things being a vegan, but you have to go to much more effort
      to get needed amount of Vitamin B12, which is normally found in one or two
      bits of meat a day, Same goes to Amino Acids, which is also primarily found
      in meat and fish sources. Can Vegans eat eggs or cheese? Both of these are
      water soluble vitamins, so the body doesn’t make or store them- so they are
      needed on a daily! Judging by your videos, you eat a lot of fruit, and a
      lot of fruit only. This is definitely not unhealthy. But, you will be low
      in these vitamins mentioned above, which meat are the main sources for
      both. I don’t mind you or other people doing it, but when you make videos
      saying that meat is ‘toxic’….

      You really need to take a look at Dr. Esselstyn’s heart attack proof video.
      How many people have you cured of heart disease? Freelee is recommending
      the same fat intake as Esselstyn.

      +11cory I’m not spouting rubbish, I’m just letting the people that watch
      this video the see other side of the argument.You’re living your life off a
      video? In that case I’ll believe the video I saw the other week about Low
      Carb, mainly meat diets supposing to be healthiest. Do your own research
      fella! If we’re talking Heart Disease here, then look no further than the
      Mediterranean diet- proven countless times in controlled studies (no
      confounding variables i.e smokers, non smokers, lifestyle factors etc) to
      be the best for reducing cholesterol & diabetes. What does this diet
      include? Meat.

      Vegetables are a side dish on this lifestyle because they are very low in
      calories. You don’t have to restrict them at all but you need to make sure
      they are not taking up too much space in your diet. Carbs should be the
      bulk! 🙂

    I am 15 years old and i don’t really know what to do as i have- for ages
    been stuck on what to eat, how much to exercise etc. I have recently gained
    a few pounds and only feel as though it’s going to get worse. I have always
    struggled with restricting how much i eat as i always give into cravings.
    This is probably because i have been restricting my diet to 1200 calories a
    day but it never works out as i always get hungry and binge. I have
    listened to your messages in your videos and now somewhat understand that
    you don’t need to restrict calories but to eat the ‘right calories’ however
    i don’t fully understand what to eat and how much to eat! What do you eat
    in a day? I have considered going vegan and want to but it wouldn’t be in
    great convenience as my mum cooks dinner and it would be a fuss etc. i am
    also very self conscious so feel as though when going to a friends house
    for example, it would be embarrassing for them to have to change what their
    feeding me because i am vegan! However i want to follow this vegan raw diet
    but need further guidance, thanks xx

      +Juliette Trickey Hello! 1200 calories is too low, you can’t live a healthy
      and happy life while eating so little. You have to increase the amount of
      food/calories you take in and it has to be right kind of foods. Don’t worry
      to much about calories, like freelee says in the video. You just have to
      eat until you feel satisfied. If you keep eating that little amount of
      calories you enter a starvation mode, where you are going to crave
      unhealthy processed foods so you can compensate the calories you haven’t
      been taking in.
      As for veganism, you have to think about the reasons why you are
      considering it (animals, your health, pollution, and many others). Try to
      inform yourself better about the lifestyle because it is really important
      not just for you but for the planet. Try to make little changes in your day
      to day life and you are going to get there and realise you feel happier and
      much more energized. When you make the decision to go vegan, try to talk to
      your parents and educate them. Try making your own food and when you go to
      a friends house just bring your own and share it with them.
      I hope it helped!

      +nikol B whole grains, legumes, beans, spinach and more plant based foods
      contain iron. No need to eat meat or take supplements if you feed your body
      right 🙂

    Hi, Freelee! I’m a new fan of yours and you’ve convinced from going from
    lacto vegetarian to vegan. Was just wondering if you’ve ever done a calorie
    count of your usual daily food intake? Is it possible that you really just
    started eating fewer calories since you switched to healthier foods? Just
    having trouble absorbing your info here since calories in vs calories out
    is the most supported thing I’ve read in regards to weight loss (though we
    know how the gov likes people to think things are okay to support certain
    industries and yet our country gets fatter and fatter and less healtht…).

      Oops, meant you convinced to go from lactoveg to vegan. Thanks for helping
      people to open their eyes. I thought I was doing good just excluding meat,
      but the truth regarding dairy is that it also causes the torture of animals
      and hurts our bodies. :-///
