  1. I understand your point but we can’t make nutrient content claims on food labels if there are disqualifying factors like saturated fat

  2. Why don't we stop eating food with the risks of poisoning yourself or loaded our bodies with things that the seller don't want us to know and switch to drink artificial nutrition mixed with water at the recommended amount

  3. Im skeptical when a man in scrubs with a stethoscope around his neck with no apparent use.
    Oh, and he's yelling. Angry stethoscope man.

    Just kidding, he's right (or is he?)

  4. How bad is high fructose corn syrup compared to sugar? I always heard it was like sugar but i also heard some people say your body might not recognize it the same i apologize if this video covers this question

  5. In Iceland it's nearly mandatory to put a serving size nutrition value of both expected serving size and the whole product contained.

  6. Halo Top was a kind of bad example when talking about serving size, since the calorie count on the label is for the entire container.

  7. I know that i'm like 1 1/2 years late to this but, 0:23 "All natural foods can still contain chemicals" So "all natural foods" contain things like water. carbohydrates, proteins, salt, fats, etc.

    Please stop using the term "contains chemicals", when anything and everything that physically exists in the known universe "contains chemicals". #triggered

  8. Aren't the US required to specify energy per [[insert your weird unit here]]. In most of Europe food is required to have nutrition per 100 grams (or 100 ml) – multiplying to get the serving size nutrition is pretty straight forward from there.

  9. I feel like one of the reasons obesity is an issue is because of this…you’re better of indulging in a regular soda once in awhile than a diet soda. I also feel like the rise in colon cancers has a lot to do with all the processed foods we eat. Stick to the outer perimeter of your grocery store, with a couple of items from the aisles, like breads and cereals. It’s a lot more work to chop and cook and prep, but it’s worth it.

  10. Don’t forget, 2% milk means it still has 98% of the amount of fat in whole milk. It should say 2% less fat than whole milk!🤦‍♀️

  11. Even without changing the rules about what's a serving size, that should be a good hint. If they've made it small, you should probably stick to that amount or less lol only something healthy would be able to get away with a huge serving without throwing up big numbers on the label

  12. Hello Doctor Mike, can you do a video about cognitive enhancing nootropics. If they actually are effective and the side effects. I've only read good thing about them but I want a professional opinion. If this isn't something you do I understand and thank you for your time.

  13. All natural: cyanide, asbestos, uranium, opium and alcohol.
    Unnatural: almost all crops we produce and animals we eat. For clarity sake most crops were alot less productive, nutritious and numerous besides being more toxic before we humans started breeding them.

  14. Definitely check the serving sizes. One time I bought Mac and cheese that said it only had 15 grams of fat and I thought 'okay definitely not bad for a big thing of Mac and cheese' then I got home, looked at the back again and saw that it was only for a 5th of the container

  15. Serving size…5 chips…multiple personalities were having a snack. "Yay," "yes," "okay," "sounds good," "I don't know if I even like these chips."

  16. When people don't explain or consider the difference between simple sugars and complex sugars for things like fruit juice… 😒😒😒 36 grams of fructose and 36 grams of sucrose aren't equal.

  17. Wow that 'you are half way there' got me at the perfect time when I started to lose interest, bringing me back into the zone

  18. Wow… I have to check that Coke vs orange juice stat, as it would be interesting to note.

    Also, don't replace water with diet coke then blame aspartame for your health issues… 4L of diet pop, sugar free gum, etc… That's 3.3 pounds of sweetener right there…

  19. America: We have high obesity rates! We need to exercise more and eat properly’!


  20. These "Buzzwords" on food piss me off and my friends that think they're eating better than me since htr up the wall.

  21. The NO 1 point is the most imp point (serving size). Btw why Dr .Mike is jumping in the video. Out of excitement??!!

  22. Or to put it in other words: if you're not a nerd reading all the nutrition labels, your pretty fucked up in the US if it comes to healthy food choices…

  23. Dr. Mike, I appreciate you making a video to educate the public about nutrition. But I implore you to include a registered dietitian in your videos regarding nutrition and health. We are the only health professionals who are required to have a 1200+ hour dietetic internship and sit for a registration exam based on clinical and community nutrition and food service. Furthermore, we'd love to share a platform with a distinguished medical provider, such as yourself, and show the public a good example of interdisciplinary teams within the medical community. Hope to hear back from you! Thanks

  24. One of my favorites was a jar of pickles where 3/4 of a pickle was a serving size. I currently have a jar that says 0 calories in a serving of little pickles. At what point have I eaten a calorie if I eat more than a serving? They are cucumbers. They're not calorie-free.

  25. That serving size shit gets me everytime they say this product only has 6 gms of fat and I am like yayyyy and then i read the serving size which is like 30gms

  26. Kind of a bummer with the missed opportunity and misleading point. Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners have received the "it makes you crave more" label since before half of them were created. Sweetening any food causes people to crave it more, and some people crave more when they don't feel a sugar boost. Artificial sweeteners probably shouldn't be consumed by people in general, as it causes over eating in most people if you do not use them exclusively in favor of sugars. And yes, even in those who DO use them exclusively, if you are not careful. Biggest lie? SUGAR FREE. Sugar Alcohol is a simple carb used as a sweetener in foods that want to claim "no sugar added" or "sugar free." Thanks to some shifty FDA backroom deals, it was decided that it didn't count as a sugar, because it does not cause tooth decay. I'm sure all of the people who end up in diabetic comas find this distinction meaningful :p

  27. Regarding number one: in Europe, companies resort to this trick, too; BUT the label (I assume the laws force them to) will always also carry the nutritional facts for 100 grams.

  28. Here in Brazil we have drinks made almost entirely of the "guaraná" bean that people (including small children) drink at every meal. And they're cheap. Like, cheaper than Coke and sometimes cheaper than water.

  29. You forgot to mention how sea salt is not actually better for you, it has the same basic nutritional value. But because it's crystallized into rocks they put less into the container, I think the common misconception is caused by this somehow, but you're ultimately paying more for less.

  30. I am seriously looking forward to when the "Full container" nutritional labels are everywhere that makes sense for them. Really loving the ones that are already doing it. Seriously, most people don't eat just half of a tiny soup container.

  31. If eating healthy, being active and having advanced medical care is supposed to improve our quality of life, then why is there an increase in Suicide rate in USA and Europe?

  32. Well number 6 is incorrect. It has been proven that intake of artificial sweeteners does not lead to increased hunger. See: Toews et al. 2019 Association between intake of of non-sugar sweeteners and health outcomes: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised and non-randomised controlled trials and observational studies.
    Also check out Anton et al. Effects of stevia, aspartame, and sucrose on food intake, satiety, and postprandial glucose and insulin levels. In this study they showed that those eating foods containing sweeteners tended to eat less than those eating non sweetened foods.

  33. Can we talk about how everyone thinks calories are evil but calorie count isn’t as important as what makes up the calories that you should look at…..

  34. why doesn't someone make eating real food more fun I mean what could be more gun then eating and artichoke, I have an agreement I made with myself if the bag has more than 300 calories and I have no one to share it with it stays in the store I make my own tortilla chips i the oven
