Best Way to Lose Weight & Get Healthy is Gardening

Alright! This is John Kohler with growingyourgreens.

Com!Today we have another exciting episode for you.

And we’re here in my back yard gardentoday.

And I got a special visitor to my garden- Jake Mace.

He has a YouTube channel, VeganAthletes,where actually he teaches desert gardening there to you guys.

Actually I’ve been onJake’s show, he’s been on my show.

He’s been to my garden and filmed, I’ve beento his garden and filmed.

We’re good buddies.

Jake: You’ve done martial arts on my show John: Yeah! And I like I broke boards andstuff, you know.

He taught me how to like you know, use my strength! Jake: Focus your mind John: Focus, yeah, very important.

But yeah,he also has a really popular Kung fu martial arts channel on YouTube actually.

But anyways,we’re not here to talk about martial arts or any of this stuff.

What we’re here totalk about is a topic that’s very important to me, also to Jake.

But Jake’s a livingexample of this happening, you know.

As much as I teach you guys about gardening, I reallywant you guys and I want to teach you guys how to eat healthier, you know.

There’sso much processed foods, junk foods and people are eating animal foods in excess, and peopleare overweight.

And my brother was labeled clinically obese by his doctor.

And, and 60,70% of people are like overweight.

And including gardeners.

And this frustrates me a lot becauseas you guys that grow your own food, we guys should be eating the food that we grow.

And,you know, if you’re eating a proper diet, a healthy balanced diet, you know, you’regoing to maintain a healthy weight like I’ve done for the last 21 years now.

And, you know,it hasn’t been always this way for Jake because Jake came from a processed junk fooddiet like many of you guys may still be eating, and eating, you know, scant amounts of vegetableshere and there.

I mean, I want you guys to have a vegetable, fruit and vegetable centricdiet.

So we’re here with Jake today, who’s actually become a ripped lean and mean, wellhe’s pretty nice, you know, low body fat and show them your muscles, Jake.

Jake: Are you, are you hitting on me? John: Oh Jake, Jake, be nice to me Jake.

Jake: You know I’ve been vegan 15 yearsand I’m trying to put on athletic athleticism with a vegan diet.

So I’m like 6’1”, 195 lbs.

John: Yeah Jake: I stay around, you know, around 10%body fat most of the time.

John: Now this is not, it’s, it’s justnot because he’s vegan or whatever word you want to put on it.

It’s because he’seating whole real food including a lot of the food he grows out of his garden.

Jake: Right John: His fruits and vegetables.

And that’swhat really, cause you could eat vegan junk food all day.

And so I don’t want to even,you know, say that you guys should be vegan.

I want to say you guys should eat fruits andvegetables as the basis of your diet.

Whether you eat vegan, whether you eat, you know,omnivorous, whether you eat carnivorous, I don’t care.

You want to eat a lot of fruitsand vegetables.

These are the Jake: Yeah John: best foods in the planet.

And we’regoing to share with you guys today the top 5 ways that Jake has been able to lose weight,get lean, get healthier by eating more food out of his garden.

Because I know all youguys have a garden, right.

And if you don’t check my other videos, I’ll show you guyshow to grow your own food.

So Jake, how do you, what are the top 5 waysyou’ve been using the food out of the garden to get lean and fit, to eat more food outof your garden instead of that processed junk foods, you know, that you had ate formerly.

Oh and why don’t we go into like before you started gardening and eating the freshfoods, fruits and vegetables, you know, how was your performance in athletics, what wasyour weight like, what was your strength, how was your recovery, all this kind of stuff? Jake: Well yeah, you know, before we get startedwith that, two things.

So one, I can’t tell you many gardening workshops I go to wherepeople grow incredible gardens.

And then when the workshops over they all go eat in McDonalds.

It’s, it’s very John: it’s ridiculous Jake: Yeah.

John: They should have kale chips and greensmoothies Jake: Exactly John: and fresh juices and Jake: Exactly John: you know, platters of radish, radishchips with guacamole Jake: Mmm, yeah, that’d be great.

Exactly.

And when I went vegan I was 19 years old and I’m 34 now.

So I’ve been vegan 15 years.

And but when I first went vegan, I was the only person I knew who was vegan besides mymartial art teachers who inspired me to be vegan.

So I went to China to study abroad,I studied Mandarin Chinese for a semester.

When I came back I decided to go vegan fora month like my teachers and try it out.

I just never went back.

And I felt like afterone week of being vegan, I felt like at any moment I was going to have a heart attackor something was going to happen because I was very much into like, I was very healthyin terms of in my mind, like 5 glasses of milk a day, I never drank alcohol, 5 glassesof milk, lean chicken, lots of fish, and so I was, but also a lot of desserts like snickersbars and all kinds of stuff.

Because I was pretty athletic and I was 19, so I could eatwhatever I wanted, just go to the gym and I was fine.

But vegan kind of started me rethinkingmy diet.

And at first I was probably, I was vegan but I was, if it was a dessert or ifit was a processed vegan food I was going to eat it.

So if it was vegan cake or vegancupcakes or vegan smoothies or vegan shakes or vegan or vegan meat or anything, I wasgoing to eat it.

But nowadays since I’ve been in my, you know, late 20s early 30s,I’ve been trying to be a more real vegan which is like eating real foods in their naturalstates, specially out of my garden.

And I tell people that growing the food in my gardenhas been one of the keys for me eating a healthier vegan diet because I’m not willing to letmy hard work go to waste, you know.

So I’m going to eat the kale, I’m going to eatthe loquats, I’m going to eat the figs that are in my garden.

And or eat the bananas.

We grow banana palms in Phoenix.

And I then have less room for those vegan processed foods.

John: Right Jake: that’s it John: So, so before you started gardening,you know, you would eat a lot of processed foods.

And what was your health like, whatwas your weight like, what was your, you know, your strength like and the recovery and allthat stuff? Jake: Yeah.

You know, to be honest I stillhave like some acne.

So I didn’t have acne at all growing up.

And when I got to be about19, 20, I started getting some acne stuff on my skin.

And going vegan didn’t reallyhelp me that much because I was still eating a lot of John: junk Jake: man made junk, you know.

But, but that’s,my whole circle of vegan friends were that way.

They were just into helping animals andsaving resources and helping the planet and trying to encourage others to go vegan.

Soif it was vegan, they would eat it no matter what it was.

So I‘ve kind of like, I’mnot really involved with them anymore and so I have kind of decided to surround myselfwith people who are more into an organic real food type of vegan, more of the raw vegan,even though I’m not raw 100% of the time, it’s not for lack of trying, you know whatI mean.

I do think the raw diet’s great and I try to be raw, at least half of foodand my breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are raw.

Specially in the dessert category.

If I can cut out all desserts and all snacks and instead do figs and mamey sapotes andfrozen banana ice cream made at home in my blender, coconut water, things like that,I , that satisfies my sweet tooth.

John: Awesome, awesome.

So like did you, whenyou, I was trying to get back to like, Jake: Oh John: when you ate processed foods like, whatwas your health like, what was your weight like, you know, what was your recovery andyour stamina and all this kind of stuff? Jake: So when I first went vegan I was 19,I was only about 165 lbs and about 6 feet tall.

So now I’m 6’1”, I , I’ve fleshedout to 195 or 200.

So I’ve gained 35, 40 lbs since I’ve been vegan.

And nowadays,I’m 34, it’s easier than ever for me to keep, to keep the muscle mass on my body whenI eat healthier.

So like for me, for instance, if I go into my garden, you guys will seemy garden on my VeganAthlete YouTube channel, and I pick a great kale salad with some kalechips and I make, you know, a home made raw, you know, like peanut sesame asian dressingthat’s raw.

Put it on there with some fruit, you know, raisins and orange slices, okay.

And then I hit the gym.

I will be infinitely more ripped the next day than if I eat likea tofurky hot dog with like a boca burger, you know what I mean.

John: Alright.

Jake: Because the boca burger and the tofurkyhot dog and the bread and the veganaise, these kind of things are delicious and they’revegan but they have a lot of fat and they have a lot of calories.

And I, and every yearI get older it’s harder for me to work off that food.

So if I eat the lean foods, saladforms, stir fried form, you know, really healthy smoothies right out of the garden, thingslike that, my workouts go better, I can lift more weight I find, I can recover a lot faster,I don’t get as sore but I can lift more.

And I keep my physique more, more consistently,plus my skin and my eyes look infinitely cleaner and healthier.

John: Awesome.

Yeah I mean, this is how I’veben able to keep my physique without going to the gym.

Jake: Oww, that hurt my head.

John: Yeah Jake: It’s hot John: And like, you know, I don’t work outexcept in my garden.

And, you know, I mean, many people comment on like for my size, mystrength to body weight ratio or weight to body weight, whatever it is Jake: Yeah John: is like way higher just because I’mmore lean and because I’m eating the best foods on the planet.

Like I don’t want towaste my time with like processed vegan crap.

And I don’t want you guys to waste yourtime with processed vegan crap, sorry Jake, or even just processed non-vegan crap.

Like Jake: Yeah John: you got to stop the processed foodslike, get those out of your diet.

And I know it can be hard.

So Jake, now let’s get intothe top 5 ways to eat more out of your garden, motivations you’ve had to eat out of yourgarden instead of buying processed vegan crap or well you don’t eat non-vegan crap ormore animal foods, right? I want you guys once again, eat more fruits and vegetables.

So Jake how have you been able to do this and have the motivation to do this, top 5? Jake: Number one, it saves you money.

John: Yeah Jake: okay, the money.

I first started gardeningat home to take my food budget down because I’m teaching 5, 6 classes a day in the martialarts, and I burn through food like crazy.

So I had to do something to keep my food budgetdown which was grow a garden, plant some fruit trees, so I’m eating out of my home.

I’mgrowing and providing food for myself infinitely cheaper.

Plus in year 2, 3, 4, 5, it’s waycheaper because my own seeds are germinating and my soil gets better and my food gets moreabundant.

So saving money, growing it at home, that’s it.

John: What percentage of money have you saveddo you calculate? Jake: Easily half John: So you saved 50% of the Jake: exactly John: money you’re spending on food, that’sgoing down the drain.

If you invest it in your garden you could have food for life,literally.

You build the soil and your soil’s good, you could keep growing stuff.

I mean,I got like tree collards here, I got like Jerusalem artichokes here, I got onions overhere, I got sorrel over there, got all kinds of crazy stuff.

So second way that he is motivatedand able to eat more out of his garden, number two? Jake: Fruit trees.

I have a third of an acrein the Phoenix area.

It’s similar to Vegas climate.

But I’m growing over 220 fruittrees so far.

The fruit trees are great because every year they get more mature, they producemore food okay.

So first year, very hard to create the infrastructure, dig the holes,plant the trees, pay for the trees.

But second year, third year, fourth year, the trees dothe work and you just reap the benefits of the fruit.

John: Awesome.

So now he’s eating more fruitbecause of his fruit trees, because like the fruit will either drop on the ground and rotand compost, maybe vermin and bugs and whatever will get it, or he’s going to eat it.

And Jake: like for instance right now, apricotseason, I have John: Oh you should have brought me some,man! Jake: Gosh, I already ate them all.

But Iate all the apricots, I froze half the apricots in my freezer, and then I save all the pitsof the apricots and I eat the kernel on the inside for the all natural cancer fightingproperties of the apricot kernel.

John: Yeah the laetrile or the Jake: The laetrile John: B17 they call it.

Jake: Yep John: Yeah.

Excellent Jake.

So regarding thefruit trees like, any tips for growing certain ones for example? Jake: I would say specially in the Vegas,Phoenix area, like a fruiting mulberry John: Yeah Jake: or a fruiting carob or even banana palmsdo well.

Or just any kind of stone fruits, peaches, plums, apricots, blueberries, pluots,pecans, pomegranate, things like that, and figs.

Figs are one of my favorite John: Yeah Jake: things and they grow great in the, inthe snow and desert.

John: So why are you motivated to eat yourfruits so much? Because you guys started talking about your apricots.

You got so excited ratherthan the stuff like at the store.

Like you could just buy apricots if you wanted to eatthem Jake: No.

Because they don’t taste the same.

Because my apricots, they leave the tree at the peak of ripeness and they go into my mouth,into my belly and become my muscles and skin, you know.

Plus I have over two hundred fruitstrees now, which you guys could see at my channel, and every one ripens at a differenttime of the year.

So every week there’s something else ripening.

Even within likemulberries or stone fruits, you have different varieties of those trees.

So that one weekit’s Pakistani mulberry, the next week it’s Peruvian, next week is everbearing, next weekit’s shangri la.

And it’s, my hands were stained purple all last month from mulberries.

So John: That’s awesome Jake: Fantastic John: Yeah.

So the other thing, you know,when you’re growing fruit trees or growing vegetables, you’re going to eat seasonallyand have a big rotation of the variety.

This is very important for your health.

Jake: Before I was growing at home, I didn’teven know what fruits were blooming during what season.

Because watermelons are in thestore John: yeah almost Jake: year round John: all year round, yeah Jake: so I’ve learned about the seasonsby growing John: That’s awesome.

Alright, Jake.

Sothat’s number two.

How about number three? Jake: Number three, preserving the food thatcomes from John: yeah Jake: my yard, okay.

And in these forms, likea raw form.

So, number one, we can freeze it in the freezer.

Very powerful because Igo to Trader Joe’s and I can buy organic frozen fruit but it’s expensive and I don’tknow where it comes from.

If I freeze my own cherries and my own apricots and my own mulberriesand my own bananas, free, infinitely better, healthier, peak of ripeness, and the foodis always changing it’s type throughout the year, okay.

Number two is dehydratingit, whether it’s making your own kale chips, dehydrating your fruits, making your own sundried tomatoes.

These things are very powerful because they can store in your house for yearsin the future.

And when it’s out of season you’re still eating dehydrated eggplantinside John: from your garden, yeah Jake: from your garden.

And number three,ferment the foods.

I’m really into lately kimchi.

I think that the kimchi I’m makingat home is so bad ass, it’s so good John: oh you got to try my kimchi, man! Jake: okay I’ll try it.

But anything thatyou’re making, whether it’s, you know, even a breakfast or a lunch or a dinner, youcould add a kimchi to it.

Your digestion gets better, your health is better.

It’s a littlespicy and delicious.

It’s a great addition.

So learn how to ferment, learn how to dehydrate,learn how to freeze.

And if you don’t know how to do it, go on YouTube and figure itout.

John: Yeah.

I have videos on all these waysto preserve food.

And Jake I’m going to throw in one that you guys you didn’t mention,freeze drying! So that’s an up and coming Jake: oh yeah John: technology.

Hopefully this year I’mgoing to get a freeze drying machine.

I’m going to show you guys how to make some crazyfreeze dried stuff that stores even better than dehydrated or frozen.

I mean, this iswhat the astronauts take to freaking Mars.

Wait we haven’t been to Mars yet.

Jake: It’s, it’s coming John: Alright cool.

Jake: No but seriously I have moringa trees.

And moringa is also one of my favorite trees John: Yeah Jake: to plant in the Phoenix ares.

The leavesof the trees and the seed pods, the drumsticks, and the flowers are all edible and highlynutritious.

And I pick those moringa leaves off, dehydrate them outside, then bring theminside in the blender, make them into a powder.

And I’ll have an all natural home grownvegan protein powder that’s beyond any store bought powder.

John: Awesome.

Yeah and I mean, you couldbuy these things, moringa powders and stuff at a health food store if you’re not growingyour own moringa, but man it’s like 40 bucks a pound! Jake does it, it is like he is, it’slike unlimited supply for $3.

99! Jake: I’m the Bill Gates of Moringa rightnow John: Right.

And yet you’re selling theseeds too.

Jake: Yeah John: If people want to get those seeds, right? Jake: They can go to jakemace.

Com.

We, my,my wife does it, Pamela.

She gives you a pack for like 4 bucks of 25 seeds.

John: Cool Jake: And they have a 70 to 80% germinationrate.

John: And if you don’t plant them, you couldeat them Jake: That’s right.

Or you could filterwater John: Yeah you could filter water yeah Jake: Yeah John: So, alright Jake, so that was numberthree.

How about way number four? Jake: So, grow high density nutrient densefoods in your garden.

So like your dark leafy greens okay like your kales, or your collardgreens.

Like John’s all into, every other word out of John’s mouth is tree kale, andazomite and rock dust minerals.

So put the rock dust in your soil and grow things likekale, ashitaba, grow your arugulas, grow the dark leafy greens that are expensive in thestore, like kohlrabi.

Because when I include, those greens are not my favorite, to be honest,I tell folks John: then you got to eat mine, man Jake: okay John: those are way better than yours Jake: okay.

We’ll have a, we’ll have ataste contest coming up John: yeah Jake: So but seriously like, I have a sweettooth beyond anything that the earth has ever known, right.

So I would prefer not to haveto ever eat a vegetable again.

That being said, I probably eat more vegetables thanall of you watching, because John: not me! Jake: I mean, not John Kohler.

But I knowfor a fact that if I eat that kale and that moringa and the ashitaba and all those darkleafy greens, the kohlrabi, the next day my waist is slimmer, my 6 pack is better, myrecovery is better, my sleep is better, my skin looks really healthy.

And when I teacha gardening class to 200 people, like the last one that was a week ago, and the ladiesare stopping me and saying why does your skin look so good? I, it’s, it’s the diet.

John: It’s the fruit and vegetable glow,man Jake: It’s true, it’s true John: You got to eat these highly pigmentedfoods, you actually looks better.

I mean, I’ve seen white pasty people eating allthese white processed foods.

Those foods give you no anti oxidants.

It’s all the antioxidantsthat give us color.

There’s research studies on this that you look more attractive if youeat more fruits and vegetables that are highly pigmented.

So that’s what I want you guysto do.

Specially if you guys are single.

That’s how I got my girl! Yeah! She’s like oh you’reso tan! I’m like it’s all the fruits and vegetables! Jake: Oh my god, that’s awesome.

It’strue probably, yeah John: I know it, that’s true.

It’s totallytrue, man! Jake: Because the, because you know, no matterhow evolved we are as humans, we still are animals, and animals want animals who arehealthy, you know.

John: I want a healthy animal Jake: yeah John: to make babies! Jake: yeah John: So Jake, as much as I agree with likegrowing greens are really good, how do you really eat a volume of them? Because I mean,most people might have like one or two leaves, they use parsley as a garnish on their plateand stuff.

But how do you really start cranking in the greens to get to where you are today? Jake: You know, I think disguising them ismy secret.

Because I love strawberries, I love bananas, I love cherries, I love mulberries,I love blackberries.

So make a smoothie of that and then put the kale and the arugulain the smoothie with the fruits so that the fruits are the tasty part but that the darkleafy greens like the moringa powder is in there in a proper ratio so that it still tastesgreat but you’re getting enough of it to make you healthy from the inside out.

John: That’s awesome.

Yeah, smoothies aregreat.

And the other way I really like to pound them in like I’ve been pounding inlike a head of lettuce and a head of celery and handful of chard, maybe some parsley,I’ll juice it.

Jake: yeah John: So I mean, I’ll juice all that stuffwith like maybe 4 apples or 1 pineapple.

I’ll make like, you know, anywheres from like 48to 64 ounces of juice, and that’s one meal.

And more than half of that liquid contentcame out of my garden that I grew with my own two hands to get that nutrition into me.

Because hopefully that’s one of the reasons why you guys are growing your food.

Becauseit’s like one of my top reasons why I’m growing my food.

Jake: You know, I have this low rpm, verypowerful Omega Juicer and I found this website called discountjuicers.

Com that really showsyou which juicer is best.

John: Yeah, I mean, I must give a disclaimer,I do sell juicers for a living, and blenders.

So if you need one, hey please visit my website,discountjuicers.

Com Also visit my associated YouTube channel youtube.

Com/rawfoods whereI have comparisons of all the appliances so that you guys could make sure you get theright one.

Jake: It’s priceless.

I had the Jack LaLanneJuicer and you did a video comparing it to the Omega.

And I saw John right there juicethe same weight of carrots and I saw how powerful the Omega was.

So it was a, your videos arepriceless for juicers.

John: Awesome, thank you Jake.

So Jake, what’sthe last way you’ve been motivated to eat more foods from your garden, eat less processedcrap? Whether it’s vegan or not.

Jake: The fifth way kind of has two parts.

Number one, it’s vote with your dollars.

John: Yeah Jake: I think that voting in the voting boothis by far less important nowadays than voting with your money.

So if you’re going to goto a restaurant or a store and give them money for food, you’re going to vote for them,you’re empowering them.

And if you put that money into your home and your garden, you’revoting for you.

So this is part one.

Part two of , so this is like sub section “A”and “B”.

So, “A” is vote with your dollars.

“B” is grow foods in your frontand back yard that the stores don’t carry.

John: Yep Jake: And what I, in my opinion what I haddiscovered from my own scientific research is that stores do not carry foods that areimportant for your health.

They carry foods that ship well, John: Exactly Jake: okay John: yeah Jake: So the only reason why the oranges andapples and bananas that are of those types are in the store because they ship amazingly John: and they store well so they don’tlose their profits Jake: so when you grow at your house likefigs and loquats, and when you grow apricots, these things have maybe like a two or threeweek John: mulberries Jake: period.

Mulberries.

John: One day before the birds get them Jake: but were they gone? John: no.

Two seconds, no Jake: exactly.

So prune the tree so they’rewithin reach and grow those foods that the stores don’t have because when you’regrowing things that the stores don’t carry, you’re bringing a diversity of nutrientsinto your system, which is going to fuel your pushups, it’s going to fuel your punches,it’s going to fuel your kicks, it’s going to fuel whatever you do physically.

It’sgoing to fuel your gardening.

And the stores do not have you best interests at heart.

Butyou do because you’re the most important person to you.

So grow those foods that areeasily going bad, that have a short John: shelf life Jake: shelf life and period John: yeah Jake: and then eat them quickly, like now,immediately.

And my favorites are like figs.

I love figs.

I love mulberries, I love anykind of stone fruit, I love apricots.

I also love sapote.

I’m growing sapote at my housetoo, it’s amazing stuff.

John: Yeah.

You’ll get, you know, more differentphytonutrients and phytochemicals in you.

But more importantly, more unique and wonderfultaste sensations that you’ve never experienced before by growing your food.

Because if youjust eat out of the grocery store your whole life, you’re being limited on the foodsthat you guys get to eat.

Jake: Exactly.

I’m with it, you’re preachingto the choir John: Alright, cool Jake.

Well, I’m gladyou’re on board.

And I hope a lot of you guys out there who watch this are taking someof these suggestions to heart and going to start trying to make ways to eat more outof your garden instead of buying the stuff.

I mean, all those ways you’re going to savemoney.

Buy some fruit trees, persevere your foods so you could eat it when they’re outof season, excellent ways Jake.

And then you could come up and be like Jake too.

Jake: Because honestly, you know, I’m theonly vegan in my family.

I’m the only one who’s really eating for health and longevity.

I have this weird goal in my life and you guys might think I’m crazy but I want atsome point, I want to be the oldest human alive for at least a minute.

John: A minute Jake: That would be a great life, you know,like, how old, maybe 130.

And for that one minute I’m the oldest person in the planetand then die.

So I’m trying to invest in myself John: That’s weird Jake: right now.

Yeah, but it’s, it’smy goal.

I’m investing in myself now through exercise, meditation, diet and seeing theworld through hiking and traveling and doing it healthily and safely.

But my family isnot vegan, I am.

People I work out with at the gym aren’t vegan, I am.

Martial artistsaren’t vegan, I am.

Gardeners are not always vegan, I am.

So I’m trying to do these activitiesaround people that aren’t necessarily health conscious.

But I’m trying to remain a blacksheep beacon of light of health, you know.

And I can’t tell you how many times thegardeners do go to fast food.

John: No, I know, I see it all the time atgardening shows and everything I go to Jake.

It makes me really sad because I mean, peopleare suffering.

And they’re suffering by being overweight, having chronic health conditions,having acne, I mean, whatever.

Jake: Right John: And it doesn’t need to happen.

Andwe just need to make small incremental changes.

And even if you’re not going to do thisovernight, you know.

The bigger your garden gets, the more you’re going to eat out ofit, the more you could preserve the stuff and the more you could edge out and squeezeout the other stuff.

It’s like squeezing out the middle men if you’re one of thosemobster dudes.

Jake: And surround yourself with people whoare doing what you want.

Like John Kohler is where I’d love to get to in terms ofeating a 100% raw diet for how many years, like over twenty years? John: Yeah 21 years now Jake: That’s insane to me.

Like the factthat he doesn’t go to Chipotle is insane to me, you know what I mean? John: Actually you know what? Chipotle hada free guacamole coupon Jake: You do it? John: So I went and got the guacamole.

They’relike you don’t want the chips? I’m like no.

Then I came home and dipped my vegetablesin it.

Jake: That’s awesome John: from my garden Jake: Maybe like slice up some beet chips John: Actually I think I added extra avocadoso it would be less salty Jake: That’s awesome, that’s awesome.

So I do think that what John’s doing is, you know, for me is motivating.

And I tryto surround myself with people in person and on video who are doing things that I enjoy,so that it rubs off on me.

So John: yeah, excellent Jake: thanks for you video John: So yeah watch people on YouTube thatare doing what you’re doing, you know.

And this will help motivate you guys along theway as well.

So yeah be sure to subscribe to Jake’s channel.

And I really wantyou guys to start eating out of your garden.

You will feel the benefits, you will reapthe rewards the more you eat out of foods you grow instead of the crap at the grocerystore, vegan or not.

How to Lose Weight in a Healthy and Natural Way

Are you looking for a way to lose weight ina healthy and natural manner? You’ve come to the right place.

In this video you’re gonna learn 3 simplerules to start losing your first 10 pounds, as quickly as possible.

Here’s a scientific principle you oughtto know first: in general, fat loss rate is directly proportional to body fat percentage.

In simple terms, the more body fat you have,the faster your weight loss will be.

But the less fat you have, the slower therate is.

And that’s the reason why under a fat lossprogram, a 200 pound overweight person will lose weight faster than a 170 pound individualdespite having the same program and lifestyle! It’s just how the human body works….

Well, unless you’re suffering from a metabolicdisease of course.

So whether you’ll lose 2 or 10 pounds inthe next few days, remember that WEIGHT and BODY FAT are important factors.

Now that we’ve established an importantpoint, let’s get down with the rules… Rule #1: Cut off the junk food.

That’s right.

No more big macs, tacos, doughnuts or evenchocolates for now.

Everybody knows that, right? They’re called junk food for a good reason,and that’s because they’re fiber-empty, calorie-dense food that will only add a surplusof calories on your diet… and still leave you starving! And guess what happens once you eat abovemaintenance level? You’ll only gain extra weight right away.

So rule #1: cut off the junk food… and youcan rest assured that weight loss will be right next door.

Rule #2: Be consistent.

There’re a lot of people who promise themselvesto stop eating junk for a while, but guess what? As soon as great tasting food is at the horizon– they begin to eat like savages! Cheat days once or twice a month are totallyfine.

But having one every other day is definitelyout of the question.

So if you wanna start losing weight, makesure that your appetite is under control.

Learn how to cook tasty, low calorie meals…that way you’ll be able to play around with the ingredients and eat delicious food thatwon’t jeopardize your consistency.

And whenever cravings start to kick in, alwaysremember to look at your ideal physique.

You can look at pictures or even attach aposter of your favorite model on the mirror! – Whatever it is, make sure it’s gonnakill your cravings… Remember… is a 2 minute binge on your favoritechocolate or ice cream worth it over a physique that would turn necks and look good on clothes? – The choice is yours.

Rule #3: Eat whole foods.

It’s already a fact.

But it can’t be emphasized hard enough.

Low calorie, high fiber food is a must ifyou wanna start shedding ugly fat.

Whole foods won’t only make you healthier,but feel satiated too throughout the day, leading to fewer calories per meal.

So avoid eating processed foods such as pasta,bread, pizza, and the like.

Instead, focus on real, whole foods like potatoes,beans, vegetables, nuts, fruits, eggs, meat, and milk! All of those taste great… as long as youlearn how to cook them properly.

So that’s all you need to know for now.

Remember… cut the junk food, be consistent,and eat whole, fiber-rich foods.

7 Tips To Losing Weight The healthy Way.

Always under the supervision of a medicalspecialist, the most important is eating properly and exercising in a fun way.

Often it happens to us that when looking forinformation on how to lose weight arrive at the same place: eat less.

This alternativeis not healthy, and can even become dangerous.

Is always convenient to find alternativesto help us reach our goal, while we take care of our mental and physical wellbeing.

Stoppingeating is not the solution, so we'll give you these 7 tips to lose weight in the healthiestway, feel better and have more energy.

1.

Say goodbye to sugar.

Sugar is found in many foods and has severalnegative effects on the body.

By consuming sugar, its levels rise in the blood disproportionately.

Then, as sugars are simple carbohydrates, a drop in sugar equally dramatic happens causingyou feel tired, sleepy or without energy.

Prefer whole-grain carbohydrates over sweets(such as fruits, whole grain bread, vegetables) and you'll notice that your energy levelsand your uncontrollable hunger improves.

2.

Take a weekly break.

You must change your habits completely andstop eating things that were once very common in your diet.

To make it easier and to extendthe life of your willpower, we recommend taking a break at least once a week.

Try not to beso strict in this day and eat one or more meals that you like regardless of their nutritionalcomposition.

That way, when is Monday again you will not feel overwhelmed to say no toeveryday temptations.

3.

Make an exercise that you love.

It is a good idea and highly recommended gettingsome exercise at least 3 times a week, but better still if you like that exercise.

Doingsomething you love will help you keep your perseverance to do it.

As with the previouspoint, doing something you do not like requires more effort, so it will be easier to wantto return to your old habits.

4.

End with junk food.

This type of food does not have any nutrientor component that can benefit your body.

They are rich in trans fatty acids, which can severelyaffect your arteries, as well as sodium.

Although sodium is necessary for our body, it is onlyin moderate amounts because otherwise, it could raise our blood pressure.

High saltcontent can also get us dehydrated.

5.

Always have a positive attitude.

When it comes a time to make a change in ourlives, it is always important to stay positive and open to change.

There will be difficultdays, but try not to be so hard on yourself.

You will always commit some error or fallwith some small temptation, but nothing serious enough to judge yourself! 6.

Eat foods high in fiber.

Foods such as bread or pasta, fruits and vegetableswill help you feel more full.

This will make it less likely to feel cravings or uncontrollableurge to eat.

Try to integrate a food with fiber in each of your meals and eat every3 to 4 hours.

Ideally would be you took breakfast, have lunch, and have two snacks (one beforelunch and one before dinner).

Anyway, all bodies are different, so you may have to adjustthese instructions to your calorie needs.

7.

Pay attention to what you eat.

Having a food and exercise diary would bea good idea.

This will allow you to plan in advance and be able to cook your food yourself.

It will also allow you to be careful and avoid eating less, which can be risky.

Whatever you do, do not expect quick changesor take drastic decisions.

What you want is to be healthier and not affecting your bodyor eating too little.
