Flashback Friday: The Okinawa Diet – Living to 100 Updated on March 21, 2020 By William Clement 37 Comments By William Clement 37 Comments mobby 1033 March 20, 2020 Love your videos very educational and interesting value thanks👍👍🏿👍👍🏿 Reply xxx xxx March 20, 2020 Adopting Vegan diet has been the best for my body. I'm glad I took it seriously at 30, because it's the beginning of higher aging and veganism has made me feel better especially with my depression. Reply Hench Herbivore March 20, 2020 Sad that Loma Linda (where the Adventists live) is now the only blue zone left after the diet of the other four became westernised. The Okinawan's really did NOT need McDonalds and KFC opening up there! What a travesty 🙁 Reply Vincent Esposito, MS, DC March 20, 2020 Ahhh the Blue Zones! Love that book! I think that was the first book I read that really turned me onto nutrition. That was when I first started taking charge of my own health and at least thought about making real changes. It took me a couple more years to really put it into action, but now that is my norm, and what I think is most helpful for the majority of my pateints/clients. It also is nice to know that there is research to back it all up!👍 Reply Russell Vincent Salonga March 20, 2020 Whenever I go vegan, I become more loving, caring and compassionate person. Maybe meat, eggs and dairy are toxic for my body and my spirit as well.. Just a thought tho. Reply Grace Morgan speaks Youtube Channel March 20, 2020 Okinawa diet is really good for the body. I wish everyone good health, joy,peace and happiness Reply Chaz Lon March 20, 2020 some of that information was from 1949 though….come on now. Reply One green piece March 20, 2020 The greener you eat, the longer you live 🌱 Reply Hulagu March 20, 2020 The American occupation of Okinawa is having devastating effects on the Okinawan economy, they are the poorest province in japan and a devastating effect on the health of Okinawans they are the fattest in Japan because of american fast food, sad! Reply Lloyd Christmas March 20, 2020 More plants. More life. More peace. Reply sooooooooDark March 20, 2020 imo sweet potatoes rnt vegetablethey r a loser version of a fruit (tho they make up for it by having the best color <3 uwu) Reply Ceem Play March 20, 2020 Consume the foods your body wants to eat Reply Dave Panther March 20, 2020 That food survey was done in 1949- post war years of great austerity and not necessarily representative of the Okinawan traditional diet. The pig population was greatly reduced for example. I wish people who put foraward the 'okinawan traditional diet' as a whole food plant based diet would address this, and/or point to some convincing evidence that this sweet potato/plant based low animal produce diet is what the Okinawans actually ate, rather than it simply being a temporary post war austerity diet. Reply telford penfold March 20, 2020 No one would centre a diet around bitter melon Reply Soy pusher March 20, 2020 Greger will live to well over 100yrs, he’s doing fantastic for 75. Wouldn’t have thought he’s a day over 65 🥑🌽🍆 Reply Stephanie Nelson March 20, 2020 Can you do a video on California Adventists? 🙂 Reply Zehra Hitit March 20, 2020 Bütün videolarınıza Türkçe çeviri rica ediyorum. Teşekkürler. Reply ela goon March 20, 2020 Thanks for your amazing videos. I have a lot of questions about How Not to Die vs. Nourishing Traditions… Can anyone weigh in here? Reply Dionyzos March 20, 2020 It's not only diet and exercise, these people socialize more, they're happier in general. Reply Mody Safa March 20, 2020 Great video Reply Mike Symth March 20, 2020 The diet wasn't vegetables, like in a variety of different types of vegetables, it was sweet potatoes (69% of calories) and white rice(12% for of calories) Andrew and small amounts of fruits(1%) and beans(6%). If they lived to 100 with little heart disease and cancer with that diet than why eat the "daily dozen". Where are the people who lived to 100 who ate the daily dozen each day? The daily dozen is complete BS Reply Eman Name March 20, 2020 There would most likely be far less animal viruses mutating to infect humans too. Some people will never learn. Reply Ph March 20, 2020 I'm a SDA vegan and practice a lot of exercise 💪😷💪 Reply jojomonsta7777 March 20, 2020 great video Reply larryvietvet March 20, 2020 After watching all the videos regarding arsenic in rice, always wondered what percent arsenic Okinawa rice has past and present.Also wonder if rice picks up arsenic regardless if chicken fertilizer is added to the soil. Example, grow other crops in the chicken fertilizer soil and test for arsenic levels and compare. Then same test in low arsenic soil. Reply J C March 20, 2020 Legendas de português e espanhol estão trocadas… Reply Jeanne Amato March 20, 2020 Why is it that most of the things we export are plastics and poisonous food? Reply Carneval March 20, 2020 This nutritional data was gathered during the post war famine. The traditional Okinawa diet contains lots of pork and seafood. I hope no one is stupid enough to believe that eating a nutritionally deficient diet of mostly sweet potatoes will do anything for anyone's longevity.

Do the immune boosting effects make cytokine storms like the ones caused by covid19 worse? If so, this would be an urgently needed update Reply QuartzTech March 20, 2020 i like eating sweet potatoes i knew i was onto something Reply Bill Ding the constructor March 20, 2020 Let’s say you eat this diet, and exercise, but also use smokeless tobacco products—still live long? Reply STOCK HIPPIE jan March 20, 2020 aloha from Hawaii!!! Reply Veganimal March 20, 2020 It's misleading to say the traditional Okinawan diet is centered around vegetables, when the main source of calories is sweet potatoes. Sweet potato is a starch. When most people think of vegetables, they're thinking of non-starchy plant foods. You can't live off vegetables like that; they don't have enough calories. You'd have to eat vegetables all day long and still may not get enough calories. Dr McDougall is right that we are starchivores. Dr Greger focuses on micronutrients and not on what we should be basing our diet around: starch. Reply brian woodward March 20, 2020 Bart Kay debunks this charlatan over and over. Greger is a fake. Reply Bruno Marcantonio March 21, 2020 Perhaps the W.H.O. should consider Declaring the American System of Health & Nutrition a PANDEMIC. Reply vegan til I die March 21, 2020 The Okinawans are not vaccinated against the flu. IT makes you more vulnerable to COVID. Almost all deaths in Europe are elderly flu vaccinated. Have a strong immune system. Take vitamin C. 3000g per day. NOT 250G LIKE HE RECOMMENDS. www.doctoryourself.com Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
