  6. Mistake eating eggs , wheat chapati, cake, muffins, bread , tea, coffee, milkshake, faludah, with IRON TABLETS— Avoid these foods for 3 hrs when eating with spinach, lentils, Liver, meat, daal. Peace from England UK

  7. Low fat milk! Whole grains! You have to be joking. This is poor nutrition advice and you need to do some research on the latest advice. See Dr Jason Fung and Dr Robert Lustig videos. People should NOT limit healthy fat intake (including animal fats) and many people are intolerant to wheat and other grains. This does not mean gluten, it means the grain itself.

  8. Im agree with most things you said in this video except one main thing.. a fiber poor diet? Hell no. Fiber is so important!!!

  9. Im agree with most things you said in this video except one main thing.. a fiber poor diet? Hell no. Fiber is so important!!!

  10. Didn’t listen to my mom by eating my green veggies now I feel lightheaded and look pale asf lmao

  11. You could have added the egg yolk with the chicken and stuffed it. The yolk is the most nutritious part of the egg!

  12. Can’t believe you don’t even know the right spelling of “Anemia”. – a decrease of the total amount of red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood that lowered ability to carry oxygen in our blood.
