After my successful 30-day vegan challenge I decided to give you an in-depth look into this new meatless burger or vegan burger craze! I ordered five meatless burgers and a single beef one for comparison's sake. I will say these burgers are technically not vegan because I included cheese and the brioche bun but they are still vegetarian! I love cheese. Let me know if you've tried any of these!
Burgers Included in this Review

Kill the annoying clicking drum beat. It's so distracting that you can't concentrate on what you are saying.

I was vegan for a while before going back to being vegetarian and I found that soy and meat imitation products are so full of sat fat and salt that they're quite unhealthy. People tend to assume vegan means full of veggies and crazily healthy but actually it's so easy to be an unhealthy, in fact with all the imitation products is easier to be unhealthy than sit down and work out the nutrition - just like with any diet. It's really cool to see a video that's fun and talks about the taste and everything but that also talks about that nutrition part :P

At first you said that the quinoa was beef but that is before you bit into it then you said it was the beyond burger, but you definitely weren’t sure

Does it matter how much protein they have? If u want more protein u can just eat something else on top of it. Do u think about the protein when u are having pizza or pasta?

dont mind my very late comment im just binge watching videos but i think theres definitely something to be said about the fact that regardless of how a company advertises a cruelty free option people will always confuse that with meaning it is healthy when the fact of the matter is the beyond and impossible burgers market themselves as sustainable options, not healthy options

A more honest test would be to do a blind cheeseburger taste test (let someone else feed you bites) and grade accordingly. The catch is that they are all veggie burgers but you've been told nothing of the sort. Just that you are grading cheeseburgers taste. Would you notice that they are not meat? It's like the expensive wine test. Blind fold the people and give them the same glass of wine over and over and they will always grade each sample like it's a different wine. Human brain does funny things like that.

Well, as an actual vegan, I don't eat burgers or any meat replacements. I believe it is healthier to eat meat than all those vegan replacements that are full of chemicals.

Dude...check out its GMO and Roundup levels. If that's not of any concern to you...you might want to do a little more research.

It's just a fad. People may try vegan burgers, but they'll eventually switch back to the real thing. You're a beef vampire, and you need your beef. Vegan burgers are like water to a vampire trying to quench its thirst. I tried a Beyond Meat burger, and it's obvious that you're not eating beef.

I tried the Carl's Jr. Beyond and the Impossible Whopper, and I have to be honest, I was wanting to love the Impossible Burger based on the hype, and it does have the correct flame-broiled quality, but it smells funny and I didn't think it was as good of a beef substitute as the Beyond. Also, Beyond Sausage is wonderful, though personally I have only had the Hot Italian.

I tried the Impossible Burger... I thought it was really tasty! Then I read the nutritional content... sodium, saturated fat... If you mix up enough salt and lard, anything tastes good! I wonder if they remembered to add "plants".

like that you see through why extra salt is added then to follow up, the protein counts are discussed. In my mind, they all vary in weight, so a larger burger may seem to have higher protein or even salt just because it is larger. Are you comparing per gram ie 100gms for each, or just quoting the serve because we can't ascertain the best info from that.

this doctor is retarded. beef is GOOD for you, in every way, period. total noob. his thinking about nutrition is so 20+ years ago. saturated fat is not bad for you. salt is not bad for you (obviously in reasonable, not extreme, amounts). a burger or steak is not a treat. SOY is bad for you. the worst part about a burger is the BUN, everyone who knows anything about nutrition today knows this. carbs and grains, keep to a minimum. if you're eating beef once or twice a day, you're golden. super ideal. grass fed > grain fed, antibiotic free of course.

Artcore103 Thanks, I’ll look into the supplements for her. 😄
Artcore103 22 days ago
@JoJo Skye that's great. Only people that cannot absorb b12 at all need shots. There is an excellent liquid b12 supplement out there that is methylcobalamin, not cyanacobalamin. Multiple companies may label and sell it, but i get it from infowars life. Not sure if the politics might bother you, please you, or if you can ignore them and take the products for what they are in isolation, but they do have excellent supplements. I highly recommend their b12 "secret 12" or "ultra 12" (i guess a newer formula), and their nascent (atomic) iodine "survival shield x2". Just look at the amount of b12 in there... With a few drops she can supplement with thousands of % of the rda of the most bioavailable form. There are nutritionists and naturopathic doctors that could test her and guide her based on principles other than the food pyramid garbage. Statins are horrible and not good or necessary for anyone period. Dietary cholesterol is imperative for brain health and keeping the myelin sheeths on our nerves.

Artcore103 That’s ok, I was really vague when I asked, so I can see why you thought it was someone who was anti cholesterol asking. Haha I eat a whole foods omnivore diet, so I try to stay away from processed foods. I’ve actually shown mom some info of how red meats and shellfish have more B12 in it. She’s having to get B12 shots every 2 weeks because she’s deficient. She takes the mainstream advice about limiting meat and eating chicken or turkey instead of eating red meats. Since I showed her the info, she is now sending me photos of her red meat she makes when she cooks, showing me she’s adding it into her diet now. But I’m concerned if she tells her doctor she’s eating more red meat, the Dr may scold her for it. She hates getting the shots. I will start talking to her about the butter. See if I can get her to buy the Kerrigold. 👍🏼 People definitely started getting all of these diseases like high cholesterol and diabetes when they told people to stop eating the full fat dairy and fatty meats. They replaced those natural foods with processed vegetable oils and low fat food but added sugars instead. Ugh I never took the advice and continued downing gallons of full fat milk, full fat everything, eating the pork chops, steaks, etc. I stayed thin eating this way and everyone always asked me how I could eat like that because they were overweight and eating the low-fat stuff. Anyway, thanks for answering with real facts. I’ve asked this same question to quite a few others and no one could answer. You’re the first one who gave me some solid proof that these foods are in fact healthy. When my family and friends question me, I can have something more solid for them now. 👍🏼
Artcore103 22 days ago
@JoJo Skye I'm sorry i came off wrong, i misinterpreted where you were coming from. You are exactly on the right track, and i can relate with your experiences. Quality kerigold type butter is practically a medicine it's so good for you (in reasonable quantities of course), especially for older adults for a number of reasons. It's full of the best form of natural K2, healthy nueroprotective fats, fatty acids, and other nutrients. It's a great low glycemic and dense energy source for seniors who might not be able to eat enough too. There is no positive nutritional benefit to margarine - none! Besides the argument about fat, which is merely a claim that it's less "bad" for you, there's nothing else positive one could say about it. That's the definition of empty calories. Butter has real positives, and the view on fats is simply false. Previous generations were healthier overall, but even considering those who had heart attacks or strokes or whatever else, there's so many factors to consider. Environmental factors, personal health factors like smoking, and other areas of their diet, their work etc. The supposed link between their breakfast choices and a heart attack is utterly foolish. Everyone ate that way, so obviously everyone who had a heart attack ate that way too. Now explain cancer diabetes and obesity in modern times and modern diets. Keep reading, maybe they'll listen to something you can show them, maybe not. But you and your family can be healthy and confident in your choices. Nutrition can get as complex as you want, supplements galore and new fads daily, but that can burn you out and give you the personality of a vegan... Doom and gloom about a specific common food, or too good to be true promises of some other ridiculous food or thing. I've indulged in that and also seen it go too far. Who has time for that. Eat things that are natural, listen to your body. Keep sugars and carbs down unless you're going biking or something and burning serious calories. Steak, eggs, bacon, cheese, butter.... These are staples! Eat some diverse veggies and salads, buy raw milk (look into that if you haven't, it's cheap in many places, incredibly delicious and crazy good for you... You know, like nature provides to its own growing infants! Duh.) Some fish and seafood, and as many spices as you can handle. Get pink salt or another natural salt, and a good multivitamin unless you really want to spend hours and hours getting more specific about that. Magnesium and other rarer minerals, other things modern soils cause foods to be deficient in. C, d, e, b... Can't go wrong with boosting the basics.

Artcore103 Thank you. I found 5 studies from a link on the page on the first website you posted. After searching myself I had only found websites claiming cholesterol wasn’t harmful, but they never posted links to sources of any studies to back up what they were saying. The closest thing I had been able to find that related to studies were people saying the past studies showing cholesterol was bad for you were flawed. Most of them use the Ancel Keys study. I’ve been watching cholesterol videos today, like from Dr. Berg, but still they never pointed to actual studies. The reason I’ve been looking for this information is because I’ve ate these saturated foods my whole life and sometimes people make negative comments about how I eat in spite of the fact that I’m healthy and in a healthy weight zone. I recently had a friend over and I was making breakfast and I asked if she wanted bacon and eggs, she said, “no way, that stuff causes heart attacks”. I said no it doesn’t. She said, “my grandpa ate bacon every day and he died of a heart attack so it’s true”. 🤦🏼‍♀️ The doctor has my mom on statins and told her to replace butter with some fake butter stuff (I forget the name). On the front it says no trans fat, but the ingredients say partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. Ugh

Thank you Dr. Mike for clarifying that the impossible burger (and beyond) is meant as a treat. Even people who are vegan seem to think that because the burgers are vegan, they are healthy. Vegan doesn’t equal healthy, and this is from a vegan of many years. Thank you always for your honesty and transparency

The point of them is to help the environment, for people that don’t like eating actual dead animal or needed to drop red meat from their diet to have that option, etc. Not to try and be healthier. Of course it’s not going to be. It’s a burger still and they don’t claim to be. If you want to eat healthy go eat a salad or something. So many hardcore meat eaters out there that say this dumb stuff just to try and belittle it.

Okay, it's nice to know about the nutrition of each of these. I've been wanting to try meatless burgers and tacos but haven't wanted to waste my money on something I might not like or might not even be any healthier than beef. I actually don't eat beef but do eat a lot of poultry.
