What Is The Best Diet For Humans? | Eran Segal | TEDxRuppin
TEDx Talks

TEDx Talks

Published on 5 years ago

Prof. Eran Segal presented conclusions from the research on the TEDxRuppin stage and made us question common dietary beliefs.

For additional information see http://genie.weizmann.ac.il

New research led by Prof. Eran Segals and Dr. Elinavs research unit indicates a drastic change in blood sugar levels between two individuals on identical diets - this may explain why some struggle to lose weight while others, on the same diet, stay lean and fit. The scientists even developed an algorithm that can calculate ones blood level based on his or her biology and lifestyle.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Find out what the very early humans would have eaten. That would be the real natural food of the humans. That would be uncooked vegetarian food fruits and roots like carrot etc.

Humans are designed to eat plants. We have different tolerance levels for animal protein and refined junk food. Many of our health problems stem from inactivity. People in affluent countries are to lazy to be healthy regardless of diet.

I’m sorry but your gut adapts to what you eat, your micro biome changes, so of course everyone has different responses because in some level it is do with what your used too, if you eat bad food you will be used to it and if you eat good food you will be used too it. Keep eating the traditional good foods, and watch for processed or polluted foods your body will adapt too it and thank you for it. Correct me if I’m wrong but this study is flawed, looks like it’s long game is a publicity stunt or sales pitch.

The best diet for human is ayurvedic satvik diet

This personalized diet thing is pretty dangerous and honestly smells like commercial interests. The different responses we have are probably explained by our previous nutritional habits therefore shouldn't be take as something to follow but to correct. Icecream is an unhealthy food, rice is an incredibly healthy one and nobody shall ever have doubts on that. You all know the guidelines to follow, and what can change usually are only quantities, unless the person has some allergies etc. Please stop looking for nutrition videos confusing yourselves further and just start being disciplined.

To the director of filming for this TED Talk and all other TED Talks: Show me the close-up of the charts until the speaker is done with them. I get no worthwhile info from seeing the speaker or the audience. Show me the charts. Show me the charts. Show me charts. BTW, if you are mindlessly applying some film school rule about changing the viewpoint every so-many seconds, then STOP! Save it for your Oscar-winner. For these lectures, just SHOW ME THE CHARTS! Thanks Rick Hydan

I suspect the participants you thought were “healthy” actually had varying degrees of metabolic dysfunction.

Good luck with trying to establish a diet specifically tailored to your genetic make-up. I'm well past a generation older than Eran Segal. I play basketball three times a week...take no medications, and can physically out-do guys half my age. The thing that turned my crashing health around some thirty-five years ago was going to a plant based diet. Today, Currently, I'm about 95% grown product, the other 5% being chicken or fish and occasionally a couple of eggs. You're a herbivore - face it and live it. But cheat now and then; your body needs that too. I wish I could direct you to my book on natural healing, but I'm not going to use this forum to promote it. And no, I don't miss the pizza, fast food, filet mignon, cheeses, and alcohol. I'm so healthy it's scary. But I'm fine with being frightened in that manner.

Body weight is always going to come down to calories in vs. calories out. A healthy diet is eating foods close to their natural state and making over half of your diet fruits and vegetables.

BS there's no way ice cream loaded with sugar isn't going to spike insulin. Perhaps it was sugar free ice cream made with real cream not milk.

We don’t need an algorithm to know Whole Foods are better than processed foods and slower absorbing digesting foods are better than fast foods. The rest is commentary.

2:10 quite simple actually. Because the food industry is a MASSIVE vested interest - much like big pharma - and therefore does whatever it needs to sell products. They don’t care about health.
