No Videos for a Bit

SadHi Everyone. I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be making videos and I won’t answer questions for about a week. A very special person past away and I want to spend more time with my family.

Please if you know anyone that has high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. Force them to stop eating meat, dairy, eggs and fat.

I tried to help and I failed, but that doesn’t mean you have to. Don’t give up on your loved ones. Keep trying so they can live a long and healthy life.

    Sorry to hear that but you are extremely right it was very very difficult to force or help people to stop them from eating meat, fat etc.
    People that eat too much daily because it was a habit for them already. Like me, I use to eat more on vegetable to replace meat. I believe it had taken me a year to do that. My wife support me and we work together. I didn’t stop to eat meat but just minimize the amount daily.

    Hi Derek,
    it’s been a while since I’m following your tutorials and videos in general and let me tell you that you are an amazing person and deserve all the best, the world needs more generous people like you.
    This is actually my first post to your videos, and although not for the best reasons, I couldn’t help to leave a message of my condolences to you and your family for the latest events.

    We all understand you need to be with your family right now more than ever.
    Take care and be well soon.

    Hugs from Portugal

    Sorry to hear about your loss, I know its tough to guide people in health and fitness. I am one of them, I recently had a weight loss challenge at work, I actually won, lost 50lbs – but I’ve discovered a few things about myself – 1. it has to come from within mentally. people that tell me i need to do something, makes me dig in and not do the correct thing. and the mental game with myself is the biggest part to eating right and exercise. 2. I actually don’t miss dairy and smaller meals are attainable and functional 3. i am actually getting better a basketball at 45 y/o, thanks to my 17 y/o. Again sorry to hear, and enjoy the memories of ones past and time with the family.

      Thank you for the kind message 🙂 I will make a tutorial very soon that will cover the results from the largest nutrition studies. I think there is so much bad information of there that I need to break everything down.

      I have been experimenting on myself for the past few years to see what really works. It basically comes down to eating fruit, vegetables and grains while avoiding fat. That doesn’t sound very good though because we need to enjoy ourselves as well. My goal is to break everything down and then make recipes that taste better then the garbage. I’ll give everything away for free and no there are no supplements and other nonsense required. I’ll upload it as soon as I’m happy with it.

    I’m terribly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences…
    Life goes on, God takes some things away from ya and gives others in exchange.
    I just found about your channel today when I was searching for an MVC tut, and from what I’ve seen in that video and your other videos, you really deserve the best things in life especially for the good knowledge and experience you’re giving to the ones who seek them while expecting no return.

  37. Frank J. says:

    A lot of positive energy for you, but also thank you for your infomation. Sometimes you wonder where people get lost in real life if they vanish online. So my condolences and even some more energy to focus on the important stuff in life

  38. Swati says:

    Oh sorry for your loss. I am also going through similar emotions but really life goes on. I try to concentrate more on other things so I don’t get depressed. So keep doing which makes you happy and satisfied.

    I wish you recover from this soon.

  39. sean says:

    what you do is greatly appreciated. I wish you divine peace in this time. I know we all understand only 0.1 % or less of this universe and divinity. I know we all live in a spec of dust of a planet midst trillions of galaxies.
    We freedom we all seek is always with us supported by the infinite power i call it god some call it energy some life force. It creates and destroys all form. May you find solace and peace knowing ur loved one and their presence will always be there with you beyond space, time and form.
    Thank you for your presence and being in this spec of dust of the planet and helping without expecting financial gain if we need more people like you I am inspired.

    Is there anything you can’t do? You should revive that fallen special person and then make some video tutorials on that. When they say you can do whatever you set your mind to, you definitely prove it. You have all the answers, you know everything, now we show you the support for such a loss. Thanks for all the videos. Don’t give up.

    • Derek Banas says:

      I believe that anyone can accomplish most anything. It is just a matter of finding the right guides and never giving up. We are very blessed to have something as wonderful as the internet and each other. Thank you for the nice message 🙂
