    Dr. Greger, I was wondering if in recent years with WFPB on the rise there has been any changes in the statistics already? I am mainly refering to the death rates ranking. Have the percentages slightly changed in favor for non-dietary death causes or such. Just curious. ^^

    Hello, wonderful. Do u think when I drink freshly squeezed vegetable juice the nutrients are absorbed of the body? Really thankful for your answer.

    This is great info! The circadian rhythm is so important! I love how more information is coming up about the importance of sunlight, circadian rhythm, and how it affects stress hormones and built-in regulatory mechanisms. Really cool stuff (especially for someone who has always lived in a major city)!

    Kids go back to school and parents take them to fast food before and after school?

  10. Kathy Shelley says:

    So if this is true, wouldn't we suppose that populations who have continually lived in equatorial areas would not experience this increase in food consumption during the fall? Since our ancestors would have developed in equatorial regions, I would think this would have been an adaptation which would have enabled populations that migrated into harsher environments to survive. This thought process could take us down a very long rabbit trail. I will just stop there🤔.

    Happy to hear this as I just woke up from a day time cat nap. I also manage to gain a few lbs during the fall anually, I generally also tend to loose them again in spring, perhaps this year even earlier as I'm on a 3 week course of anti-biotics to eradicate remnants of a Lyme infection, in a previous course I lost about 10 lbs in 2-3 weeks.

    Why People Gain Weight in ALL THE FOOKING SEASONS.

  20. Carmela Christopher says:

    Btw… I wonder if anyone has done any studies on people living in the far north when it's dark for 2+ months and/or light for nearly 3 mos at a time?

  21. Enjoying Life says:

    Why is it called a disorder? It's a natural response. And night workers can do almost NOTHING that you advise. Sorry to disappoint.

  26. Vegan Games says:

    In Australia, our Christmas is during the summer and people still blame that for weight gain!

  27. Sidilicious says:

    The holidays plus less daylight= pudge.

  28. lightdark00 says:

    I’ve always been backwards, losing weight through fall and winter and gaining some in spring and summer due to increased activities mainly.

  29. NutritionFacts.org says:

    My new book, How Not to Diet is all about the research on weight loss. Check out the trailer at https://youtu.be/h_0pEOTHt30 and read more about the book https://nutritionfacts.org/how-not-to-diet.

  30. KinaStar says:

    I thought that because winter was coming up I'd be able to cover more of my extra belly lol vegan junk food is delicious, need to cut down those weekends lol also, I've had smoothies at night and ended up so gassy I couldn't even sleep well throughout entire night due to bloating it's hard because I get hungry about 10pm

  31. Peyman says:

    As Shakespeare said: "The spring, the summer, the childing autumn, angry winter change their wonted liveries" 🙂

  32. Laurie Paris says:

    Yep it's those genes at it again, causing us to gain. The Halloween, Thanksgiving and Winter Holidays genes. 🌱

  33. James Parker says:

    What? I never gain weight in fall, then again, I don't stop exercising when everyone else is sat inside watching TV…

  34. James Parker says:

    Shorter days and worse weather cause us to stay inside and exercise less whilst eating more. That's a calorie surplus right there.

    From my experience, its pumpkin pie. All hail pumpkin Pie.

  37. liam malpass says:

  38. The Honey Boost says:

    I love these quick videos with practical info!

  39. KCallaAK says:

    Even though I have maintained a 60+lb loss for over 10 years, I have ALWAYS put on 5 lbs every winter and had to "take it off" in the spring. Considering I live in cold and dark Alaska, it seems normal. I DO slow down. This year, after following The Starch Solution and being in Alaska this winter, (last winter I was in TX), I have NOT gained the 5 pound fluff! I am SO thankful for my love of veggies, fruits, legumes, and whole grains that I can eat abundantly.

    Because of acceleration?

    Can anyone tell me the best time to eat breakfast according to science? munching on berry overnight oats

  44. ggzh a Argue With Everyone says:

    I lost weight during this fall and "winter" 🙁

  45. Zeenon ThaRuler says:

    Why do you always sound like you are struggling to get your words out when you talk.

  46. KS says:

    I always noticed that I gain weight during autumn and winter. Even though I don’t change anything. I eat exactly the same amount of calories and I go outside a lot during the day to catch some day light. I also go to sleep early and wake up early and very active in the gym. Still gain weight in this season and lose it when spring comes. I would say I gain around 1-1,5 kg. Can’t do anything about it. I always knew it is a seasonal thing.

  47. Katharina Steiner says:

    Sorry but i have to share my stupid thought: "so climate change makes us fat?" 😉

  48. gdcat777 says:

    Mow lawns all summer and by fall you will be lean, if you eat correctly however. My weight gain has always been in the winter.
