The more muscle we carry the more calories we burn, even at rest! V important IMHO Reply WholeElise says: October 21, 2019 at 12:07 pm Was not expecting a "Biggest Losers" cameo, the show that keeps on giving 😂 Reply Phat Vegan says: October 21, 2019 at 12:07 pm I'm 66' 1/2 tall I was over 300lb eating animals Now without fixing my overeating. I'm at least down under 200lb! I'm still sedentary, and wish I would eat less. But I'm always so hungry! But dr. Greger talks about this when losing weight. I'm sure I will get a hold on it eventually. But for now I'm not harming anyone else and I'm enjoying the food I do eat. Thank you dr. Greger! Reply Phil Adams says: October 21, 2019 at 12:09 pm 1:34 – why are you mixing in metric and non-metric units? The study has no mention of pounds. This is too confusing.

Reply BobbyJobling says: October 21, 2019 at 12:26 pm Intermittent fasting, is much better for the body than constant calories restriction. see Dr Valter Longo research. Reply sooooooooDark says: October 21, 2019 at 12:27 pm 1:45yea all the bodybuilders in the last 100 years were doing it wrong"obviously" 🤣 Reply DEEPAK hiranandani says: October 21, 2019 at 12:34 pm Thanks. There seem to be hardly any pitfalls as compared to the benefits.I have a question, although only indirectly related to this: load bearing exercise like walking is supposed to be very good for preserving bone density. My question is, does this beneficial effect extend to all the bones generally, or only to the bones being used and stressed, so to say? I do walk a fair bit so I guess the bones of my spine, hips, legs and feet benefit, but I'm otherwise very lazy so I suppose my arms and shoulders are not helped? While walking I do carry the many vegetables and fruits I eat so that must help a bit. Logically, as for muscles, only those bones which are actually used should benefit. But just in case there are considerable spinoff benefits to all the bones, well that would be a good surprise to know.

I want to do more research on protien over on my channel. Thank you for showing that exercise is the best for muscle mass. It really doesn't matter how much protien you eat, if you don't use it you will lose it and you definitely will not gain more.

Reply Mike Skylark says: October 21, 2019 at 3:01 pm If you're already whole food vegan DO NOT further restrict your caloric intake! Rather do more excercise! Been there, done that. Reply The Fruit Addict Ⓥ says: October 21, 2019 at 3:19 pm Calorie restriction is so vague though. Methionine restriction has been shown to be beneficial. What about polyunsaturated fat restriction? Reply RipeApple says: October 21, 2019 at 3:19 pm What about long term compliance with CR diets? Reply PortCanon says: October 21, 2019 at 4:18 pm The doctor would make a great voice actor.

Reply Jamie Dunson says: October 21, 2019 at 5:56 pm Perfect timing with all these high calorie pushers in the vegan community telling us to eat over 2k no matter who we are lately, which has shown to be very detrimental to me. Just started eating way less and finally I’m feeling like myself again. Reply fire7side says: October 21, 2019 at 5:59 pm I'm 68 and lost quite a bit of weight. Now I'm trying to do resistance once a week along with my daily walks to get the muscle back. Yeah, you look so horrible because your skin gets wrinkly and you lose muscle. It eventually comes back without gaining weight, with exercise. At first, you aren't sure if you look better or worse. Reply truefuschniken says: October 21, 2019 at 6:24 pm Thanks for this!!

Reply Sue Flay says: October 22, 2019 at 2:17 am PLEASE NO ONE RESTRICT CALORIES, U WILL JUST BINGE. EAT WHATEVER THE HELL WILL MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD. WHY ARE WE OVERCOMLICATING EATING THIS MUCH?? Reply Sue Harrison says: October 22, 2019 at 2:58 am VAlter Longo recommends consuming 30g of protein within a half hour of weight training. If you calorie restrict and lift you will need to make sure your protein is sufficient. Also allow for plant protein not being so efficiently absorbed.

Reply Rachel Feijó says: October 23, 2019 at 8:31 am 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏💪💪💪💪 Reply Julia Eboli Nogueira says: October 23, 2019 at 10:39 am I can't understand what calorie restriction really means when mentioned in these studies, even more so if you're already in a healthy weight (I'm 23yrs, 5"4' and 117 pounds, which puts me in the end of the BMI chart, so don't think I need to loose weight and yes put on muscle, so CR is actually contra-productive in this case).I have experienced only negative effects of CR during my life. 8 years dieting, fasting and exercising 8-9 hours a week brought me to a bad relationship with food and my body, and constant stress, that resulted in disease. and yes I've been plant based this whole time – I still am, but had to let the calorie restriction and overexercising go… Reply Daniel Blaha says: October 23, 2019 at 11:37 am I can go hours without eating on high fat.
