    Through a captivating, tear-jerking, and ultimately inspiring story of her (then) 16 year old son, JJ Virgin demonstrates the importance of being the CEO of your own health, and precisely how to do so.

    She teaches about the all-too-common leaky gut syndrome and how to seal the gut up properly, once and for all, for optimal health. Food is the ultimate reset. When you start connecting the dots between what you eat and how you feel, you can begin to make small shifts in your lifestyle and finally feel like the superhuman you’ve always been.

    JJ guides you through the simple diet shifts you can start making immediately — from intermittent fasting, to eating a whole food diet, to replacing unhealthy foods with viable alternatives.

      ​@Francesca C , research "real food". Listen to Robert Lustig, M.D., M.S.L. — "Processed Food: An Experiment That Failed"
      Also, around about the 28th minute in to this vegan documentary they have some very yummy and healthy food: (caution: that docu contains a lot of mushy emotional music).
      I think the general answer to your question was given in this talk by JJ.

      Most surprising: when she said women aren't as good at intermittent fasting and get cranky. Seems to me people often get cranky when changing habits. It seemed a bit at odds with how she wonderfully addressed how one can habitualise oneself to be either a sugar or a fat burner, and how fat burners are better at longer breaks between eating. And don't women have more subcutaneous fat making them if anything more naturally fat burners and insulated against famine?

      Overall an extremely good talk, very much in touch with honest research, giving due respect, for example, both to keto (grass fed if pos) and to high carb (slow, longer to digest carbs). Wonderful human being. Deeply moving actually. Very grateful.

      See also Dr Lustig, Dr Fung, Dr Berg and compare with Dr Neal Barnard, Dr James Marcum, The China Study.

      Why is the crap keep showing up all over my YT. Please stop harassing me with your silly BS, and snake oil sales man scams. I hope most people wake up to the fact that all these "self help" "gurus" and "coaches" are just clever con artists.

                                      Never trust anyone who tells you to avoid some whole foods. a whole food plant based diet is the best. a food sensitivity testing would be better to get to know ur triggers better

                                          Fructose does not come from fruit JJ ! It is a clever marketing name for dangerous toxic man made sugars the body does not recognise. Fruit and fruit sugars are the foods that heal chronic illness! This is why no one needs to "crack the code" or invent their own health system. Nature has already figured it out. We just have to remember what our ancestors knew. It is man made foods and chemicals that are destroying people's health. Fruit can save your life. I am sorry, but you have been misled.

                                                  So many diets, so little time. I'll still eat my Endangered Species 88% Cocoa every day. You can eat the healthiest of diets, drink and bath in the purest of waters, then leave your house and get hit by a car. If you're healthy and not specifically allergic or intolerant to a specific food, enjoy life and simply eat a balanced diet. I say the Mediterranean diet is the best, but that's just my opinion.

                                                          I eat a high protein shake with fruits, veggies, and yogurt. I usually go 5-7 hours between meals

I have to agree that added sugar from a form of FRUIT CONCENTRATION is worse than the refined sugar in COKE. . .Especially orange juice from concentration. . . so make sure you eat fresh fruit juice or juice made from fresh juice and not concentrates. But not sure we have to stay in a Keto state, which she is promoting here but without saying it. . . . unless we are needing to lose weight. . . we can eat as much fruit as we want. .. . .fructose will NOT make FAT unless you are a LAZY ASS ! No one who eats fruit all day just sits on the couch and doesn't burn that shit. If you understand what you need for your lifestyle then it is a lot easier. . . right now I'm trying to lose weight so I'm trying to stay in Keto for a few days using The Snake Diet. Check out Cole Robinson on you tube. . . .for great info on losing weight fast doing fasting and Snake Juice. . .I think that the bottom line is that WE NEED MORE SELF CONTROL and we need to change our relationship WITH FOOD. . .stop shoving shit in our faces all day long. . but get out of our fear and be more active and see the world or our neighborhood parks. .
