  • Beet greens are tasty but for some reason I can't eat the actual root!  It comes right back up!  It must have something in it that my body doesn't like!

  • I do enjoy poking you in the eye with things about BACON, Heavy Cream, Ice Cream, and the like, but always enjoy your presentations.


  • Yes yes yes !! I loved this video and really needed this information. I've been doing lots of research ever since I got my gall bladder removed three years ago ! Worst decision ever in most ways but now that I'm a plant eater I am almost healed. I love beets ! I would love to see a video about gallbladders somehow. Doctors just keep taking them out of people when it's just symptom of a high fat diet. Would love to know more about it. 🙂

  • I think it is relevant though that these studies were done "in vitro".  I would imagine that you could through a sponge in the mix and it would beat everything, but that doesn't mean that it is better or that that is what would even happen during the digestive process.  After all, the foods mentioned would first pass through some digestive processes before even coming into contact with bile right?  I think, without reading the studies I grant you, that these studies are kind of pushing what we should consider applicable to human digestion considering that they were "in vitro".

  • can anyone help, having problems with bowel movement and now just discovered i'm getting a hernia any herbs or good food for these problems?

  • There is one unknown here… tap water, filtered water or purchased water.  I did the microwave test and learned it is true i.e. plants in microwaved water die or stop growing.  But, I also discovered that all tap water did poorly.  In my tests, boiled Aquaponic water grew the best plants.  I would NOT use tap water to steam veggies unless the water was pure and clean.

  • Thank you this is good info.  Perhaps this will explain why beets have been a staple food in many cultures. They probably knew this. 🙂
    Having a Russian background does definitely make beets one of my favorite foods.  We buy beets in larger bags because we use them often.  We steam, boil and bake them.  I often boil a few beets unpeeled and store them in the refrigerator.  Then it only takes several minutes to peel and chop them, so we can have them for lunch. 
    The best thing about beets, I find, is that they don't need any fancy dressing, just olive oil and salt is often enough.  Good beets are sweet and tasty. It is important to me that it is easy to make and therefore we eat them often.  

  • Still, weight loss is more important than the rest. But then, since anything on this list helps weight loss (because of high volume, fiber content and now apparently binding bile acids meaning increasing calorie loss), why not do both!

    But does it really? Was there a study measuring the bile acid content in stools?
    If not, this is not proven. Again. We need better studies.

  • I love beets and eat them frequently.  However, you saw cooked beets, which is my preference, but I have heard they must be eaten raw, is this true, toxic when cooked?  thank you for all you do.

  • Thanks for this video which I’ve stumbled on after researching bile acid malabsorption

    I’m currently on the start of a 2 week intake of Questran which is a brand name in powder form mixed with water in the hope it will cure chronic pain and diarrhoea which I’ve been controlling with codeine for the past couple of years but it’s now happening after everything I eat

    I’m going to start eating these vegetables especially the top 5 thanks

    More info on Questran here


  • I never had a raw beet til 2 wks ago. Just occasionally pickled. The raw is … OK! Gives a good crunch on a salad. And it's pretty : )
