Reply ThrivingHuman says: February 14, 2014 at 3:32 pm really interesting Reply TallestFiddle says: February 14, 2014 at 3:45 pm I think he's underestimating the types of exercise you can do to burn more calories, he only mentioned walking and 6 minutes of sex. Most people who exercise regularly do more than just walk, and most people do more than 6 minutes of exercise. Reply Vegan mit Rohe Energie says: February 14, 2014 at 4:42 pm Thank you Dr. Greger!!! Reply Yavuz Yorukoglu says: February 14, 2014 at 5:57 pm I am sure it was not Dr. Greger's intention but the message here is "dont waste your time exercising", which is terribly wrong. 30 minutes a day of exercising trumps almost every other method ( including a veg diet ) in maintaing a healthy weight and preventing heart disease. Reply Magus says: February 14, 2014 at 6:56 pm That didn't really answer the question… Reply Andy Vegan says: February 14, 2014 at 8:49 pm It's said from Dr.Neal Barnard that you would have to run 4 and a half miles JUST to burn off 6 disgusting Chickens nuggets Reply Happy Healthy Vegan says: February 14, 2014 at 9:37 pm great vid. it's been our experience as well that eating a healthy plant based diet has far more of an effect on weight loss than exercise does. Reply Lyubo Yanev says: February 14, 2014 at 10:07 pm but hey, what about mr.Durianrider who eats 3000 to 7000 kcals a day. and weights under 65kg (145lbs) mega lean… so I guess it isn't only about how many calories people eat, but also what kind…. High Carb Low Fat in Harley's case Reply Live Vegan says: February 14, 2014 at 10:26 pm The best reason to be vegan? Because it's morally unjustifiable to torture and murder 80 billion land animals and 1 to 3 trillion aquatic animals each year mostly for our palate pleasure since we can easily meet all our nutrition needs from plants (and non-animal sources). It's easy to be vegan. It's clear that using animals as property, as "things", as resources for food, clothing, entertainment and other reasons is great violence. Becoming vegan was one of the best decisions I made in my life.

According to self reported data people eat around 1800 cals a day, Ha! Can you believe anyone would get obese on that amount?

Reply Galina says: February 19, 2014 at 9:22 pm Maybe bcs we eat GMO Frankenstein food in addition to weird over engineered wheat that our bodies can't even recognize anymore, exposed to scientifically proven obesegens every day – like drinking plastic water (from plastic bottles), fluoride in top water and other millions of chemicals that in our food and water and eating dead food that has no life in it left after we cook it – do animals cook their food? And who is doing all these to us – we are! We are working for crazy people and corporations and letting them to brainwash us with all for profit no matter what the consequences to the population which is us – time to get smart everybody and open our eyes! Reply 11cory says: February 20, 2014 at 11:36 pm It's just moving your body. You use energy so you'll eat to regain your energy. Exercise has nothing to do with weight loss. Reply TPQ1980 says: February 23, 2014 at 4:21 pm There seems to be a lot of confusion between nett and gross calorie burn during exercise, which leads to people thinking they're burning more than they actually do. To actually add calories you can consume to your day, you need only to take into account the nett calories burned and ignore the BMR competent. For somebody weight around 75kg (165lbs) it would take a walk of around 10 miles at around 3.5mph to burn enough calories for a Big Mac. Who has the time the walk 10 miles a day to burn off a Big Mac's worth of calories, let alone the motivation to do it. Maybe you could do it with a treadmill, but it'd still take around 3 hours a day. Ultimately, it's best to just not eat the Big Mac in the first place. A Big Mac a day, if none of it is burned off, will result in a gain of around 22kg (50lbs) of fat a year. Reply JohnnyV83 says: March 3, 2014 at 8:24 am The problem is that a lack of exercise (among other things) contributes to CVD (cardiovascular disease), and while a plant based diet has proven weight-loss benefits; it's unhealthy to define your overall health by weight alone. Oh, and BMI is a lie that offers no accurate picture of health. Reply colonyofcells iamamachine2 says: April 6, 2014 at 7:54 pm To help lower my blood sugar, I do exercise before breakfast and also after every meal. I also put a small table under my computer table so I can stand and or exercise while using a computer. Same can be done in the office by requesting a higher office table. Reply Anthony Daniels says: April 23, 2014 at 3:48 am We eat food to move more. Not move to eat more. Reply Jester123ish says: April 28, 2014 at 4:33 am As anyone who runs understands it's not just the calories you burn while running but the extra calories you burn for many hours afterwards that should be taken into account. Also overlooked is that physical exercise conditions your insides and helps with hunger control and digestion. But if I had to guess I'd say it's the long slow sustained exercise you'd get from normal physical activities that is missing in most people's lives, hunting and gathering wasn't like going to the Gym. Reply Logan Mathis says: May 3, 2014 at 11:59 pm Take it from a CPT when I say: If you stay at a caloric deficit you will lose weight.I could eat Twinkies as long as I am eating lower than my TDEE. It's not hard…You don't need to workout 2 hours a day. Many trainers will go against that. It all depends on the intensity. Yes, if you walk a slow pace you're going to need to go longer. Do HIIT and you will burn a heck of a lot more calories in a shorter time. Reply Feldenkrais with Alfons says: May 30, 2014 at 12:12 pm LOL I had to burst out loud at the one fry joke :/D Reply Danny James says: September 21, 2014 at 2:53 am There's so much more to exercise and weight loss than just the amount of calories burned during the exercise session. Reply Theodore Khachaturian says: November 4, 2014 at 12:15 am I laughed. I lost about 25 pounds on plant-based diet. Had nothing to do with exercise. Reply BloodMeridien says: November 17, 2014 at 8:56 pm Six minutes! That's a long time……must be newly-weds 😉 Reply OfftoShambala says: June 22, 2015 at 10:36 pm Exercising is good for circulation, oxygen, detoxing, lymph system, pain levels, strength, training for some kind of physical ability, muscle strength, particularly core strenght supports overall good health etc… so it should still be done! But, definitely eating has much more to do with literally losing weight for most people, no doubt about it. Reply Medicinal Fried Chicken says: August 28, 2015 at 9:57 pm exercise isn't just burning calories, it's gaining muscle that will use up more calories during the day just by being made of living cells. as well as that, it also increases metabolism for many hours after a workout which will burn up calories that would normally not be used up and stored as fat. on top of this, it burns carbs in our body then breaks down fat for energy. overall, if you tie it in with proper nutrition and not over consuming unhealthy foods, you will lose weight and get a better body. neither one nor the other can truly work wonders on their own, they need to be combined to become as effective as they can possibly be. Reply Ray V says: March 4, 2016 at 10:06 am 6 minutes?! Reply thebudkellyfiles says: April 4, 2016 at 4:05 pm Geesh, when I am on the treadmill at the gym, going 4 mph, the display says that I am burning 405 calories per hour. Since you have to burn 3,600 calories or so to burn one pound of fat, that would be about 9 hours of walking at 4 mph, about 36 miles, to burn one pound of fat. Wish my car was as efficient as extracting energy from carbon, I could get almost 300 mpg. But going to the gym does improve my eyesight… Reply Brooklyn Hudson says: December 5, 2016 at 10:44 am So is it even worth exercising? What are you saying here? Reply m0L3ify says: September 5, 2017 at 2:14 am 6 minutes?? LOL! Reply Bat Fink says: November 13, 2017 at 6:13 am How to save hours a week in the gym burning calories – don't eat sugar filled beverages, fat and salt filled burgers and fries and definitely no pizza. If you save a dollar off something you were going to buy it's the same as earning one, same as not eating a calorie means you don't have to waste time and energy burning it. Reply Kevin B says: September 26, 2018 at 11:54 pm You can eat and exercise and look swole or just eat grass and look like greger Reply TheNew Brazy999 says: September 29, 2018 at 4:20 am Bitch please…. 10% of weight losss is exercise most comes from diet…. proof. I intermitent fast and have been for the past 4 months and have shredded 70 lbs with little to no exercise …. i call bs. Reply She loves fruits says: January 24, 2019 at 9:32 am The video clearly shows Dr. Greger has no real personal experience when it comes to sports, fitness and weight loss, sadly. Otherwise he wouldn’t promote such crap. Eating hclf vegan alone only works when you restrict calories hard. In order to not starve yourself and lose weight you need to exercise on a regular basis and with exercise I‘m not talking about fucking your partner for a few minutes once a week! 😁 Alternate strength training like bodyweight exercises with cardio training like walking, running, cycling or swimming. It’s so effective for weight loss! Reply Peter Kinjark says: February 10, 2019 at 9:52 pm Which are the most potent herbs to aid in appetite suppression? Reply Madison One says: March 13, 2019 at 10:23 pm You can’t out exercise a diet, period. Reply Gregory Skaff says: July 12, 2019 at 6:54 pm Dr Greger what about physical EPOC activities like HIIT and Tabata training and progressive overload and time over tension weight lifting which continue to burn calories after the exercise is completed? I would really like to hear your thoughts on those exercise regimens and the frequency that they must be done. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
