  1. I can relate. I’m 55 next month. Wait until you reach that age! 🙂 Before I went vegan a few yers ago I was on two medications I was told I’d be on for the rest of my life. One for high blood pressure and one for high cholesterol. I’ve had two best friends die already and I have family of the same age who are riddled with health complaints from arthritis to diabetes and all are overweight. Although I have people say how well I look now (I’ve lost a lot of weight and am a lot more muscular) they just take no notice when I say it’s all due to the vegan diet. I get so frustrated with people!

    1. We’re so happy for you Dale 🙂 If only all men your age followed your lead the world would be a totally different place. Thanks for going against the grain. Yes, the frustration is real that’s for sure! Thanks for listening and for sharing your story here with others 🙂

      1. Thanks. I should have added that I went vegan for ethical reasons due to all the people, like you, I’d followed on YouTube. I knew nothing about, or maybe didn’t believe (I can’t remember now) anything about the health benefits. I feel so energetic and light now. It’s my best form of activism at the moment in that others have noticed a massive difference in me and have asked me questions about diet. I am intending to start a YouTube channel soon. It’d be great if it convinced a few ‘older’ people to go vegan. I will be ready for all the trolls saying how old I look 🙂

  2. Coffee has become an epidemic in Australia and I’m part of the culture, I’m definitely addicted. I could save up and go on a tour of LA with you guys with the money I could save from coffee 😱 Amazing all these ailments you no longer have due to a healthy vegan diet. You never hold back with your content, great vid, I’m sure it will inspire many. Thanks Natasha and Luca for sharing, you two always make me smile 😄

    1. Easy fix! For the next 5 months, ditch the coffee, up the cheap as chips oatmeal, rice, potatoes, and beans, and come join us on the LA tour! 😉 Seriously though, thanks for all your awesome support of our podcast Brenda, we really appreciate it! 🙂 xoxo

  3. I can relate to this so hard!! I had the worst eczema before I went vegan. It was so bad I had to bandage my arm (where the eczema was) so that I wouldn’t scratch it in my sleep, but I would wake up in the middle of the scratching anyway. It was so bad sometimes that it would bleed! I also had terrible sinus issues, profuse sweating, and geez I never thought about all of these until now…

  4. Once again thank you! Both of you did a great under cover job (pun intended) 😁 the quality was good and the content was great as always
