WW Kurbo Jameela “Body Shaming” Backlash, PewDiePie Married, Huge Amazon Fires, & Planned Parenthood

– Sup you beautiful bastards? Hope you’re having a fantastic Tuesday. Welcome back to the Philip DeFranco Show and let’s just jump into it. And the first thing we’re gonna talk about today is Weight Watchers. – I love bread. – That is great, Oprah,
but this is not about you. So Weight Watchers, which
actually now calls itself WW, they introduced a new app
last week called Kurbo, and they said that this
program is designed to quote “help kids and teens ages eight to 17 reach a healthier weight.” Although the app isn’t completely new. Back in 2018, Weight
Watchers acquired this app which is based on Stamford University’s Pediatric Obesity Program,
and what they say is 30 years of clinical nutrition and
behavior change research. And after purchasing the app, they spent about a year developing
it, adding in features like breathing exercise instructions, a Snapchat inspired interface, and multi day streaks to
encourage daily activity. Users in the United States
can download the app for free, they put in their height,
weight, age, their health goals. And those users start logging
in the app what they eat. And Kurbo has this traffic
light system that is supposed to guide adolescents toward
healthy food choices. As Weight Watchers
explains, “kids and teens are encouraged to eat more of the healthy green light foods, such
a fruits and veggies; be mindful of portions
of yellow light foods, such as lean protein,
whole grains, and dairy; and gradually reduce but
still include consumption of red light foods, such as
sugary drinks and treats.” Users can also consult
with a personal coach through the app for a fee,
starting at $69 a month, and this gives them access to 15 minute video chat sessions with
Kurbo coaches every week. Kurbo saying that these
coaches “are specially trained, Kurbo certified, and come from a diverse range of professional backgrounds.” Now, at this point, I wanna make it clear, this is not a sponsor spot. The reason we’re talking about this today is while there are people that are happy that this app exists, there
are also others who are angry, or at the very least, very concerned. You have parents and nutritionists who are concerned that
Kurbo could be creating unhealthy relationships with food at a highly impressionable
time for these children. And in fact, some studies
suggest that childhood weight loss efforts can lead to or worsen eating disorders and body image issues. Critics have also expressed concerns about specific points on the app. This including the success stories section which shows before and after photos of children as young as eight along with their weight loss
totals and testimonials. And around this, you had
the likes of Keri Glassman, a New York City based
registered dietician, telling Good Morning
America, “looking at before and after pictures of
kids who have lost weight is absolutely something
that could lead to children to feel horrible about themselves and it really is a form of body shaming.” And adding “they could have
created an app for children that promoted healthy
eating and healthy lifestyle and good health education and information and help children boost confidence, but I feel like the way this app was built is so similar to Weight
Watchers, and just geared completely towards weight loss,
weight loss, weight loss.” You also have others
criticizing the goals section of the app which includes
the options eat healthier, lose weight, make parents
happy, get stronger and fitter, have more energy, boost my confidence, or feel better in my clothes. And Kurbo has stressed that the app is meant to be a family based approach, but many have been saying
that working to lose weight to satisfy family members is damaging, and parents handing
their children this app can make them feel like
something is wrong with them. Nutritionists have also
criticized the coaches on the app. Based on staff descriptions
on the app’s website, the trained coaches
include people with degrees in economics, tourism
management, and communications. However, on this note, Weight Watchers Chief Scientific Officer
Gary Foster told CNBC “if we want to live our
purpose of making wellness accessible to all and doing it outside an academic medical center,
we’re not going to be able to hire pediatricians, dieticians, exercise physiologists, and psychologists. What we do well is take science and scale it, measure the impact to make sure we’re living
up to our purpose.” And we’ve seen this backlash
growing and growing, people have even started sharing petitions to call for the app’s removal. We also saw A Good Place actress Jameela Jamil jumping on board. She’s a vocal advocate
for body positivity, she shared the petition as well as tweeting “oh fuck no, are we kidding? Breeding obsession with
weight and calories and food at the age of eight? I was 11 when my obsession started, due to being put on a diet for being the heaviest girl in the class. I became afraid of food. It ruined my teens and twenties.” But with all of that said, I do wanna pass the question off to you,
do you think that the app and or the idea behind
it is good, it’s bad? I mean obesity is an issue
in the United States. Also, I mean regarding
children, about 13.7 million US children between two and 19 years old are obese according to the CDC. Although I will say, I know
the CDC uses data there based on BMI, body mass
index, which is a measurement based on weight and height
that many health professionals have slammed as arbitrary and inaccurate. But yeah, I wanna know your thoughts in those comments down below. Then in quickie light and
kind of uplifting news, we have it feels like the closest we’ll get to a YouTube royal wedding. The most subscribed individual
on the YouTube platform, pewdiepie, aka Felix,
has now married Marzia. A story that I thought
only the YouTube community would care about, but
man, it was everywhere. The BBC even reported on it, although they decided at the end of it to just mention all of his past controversy. Because, you know, of course they did. I’m really only gonna say two
things regarding this story. One, congratulations to the happy couple. Although is it really a YouTuber wedding if you didn’t emotionally
exploit your young audience and get them to pay $50 for
a shitty live stream of it? And by it I mean a bullshit
affair that in no way was actually legal and is just show. Okay, I’m done being petty. And two, as a wedding present to Felix, I will spread the fake
news that his old series Last Week I Asked You, came
before Yesterday I Asked You. I won’t actually do that,
that was a bad joke, anyway, moving on, congratulations. But from that, I wanna share
some stuff I loved today in Today in Awesome brought
to you by NordVPN.com/Phil. And VPNs, if you don’t know,
much like a firewall protects your data on your computer,
VPNs protect it online. And it’s something that’s
important to have, yes, on your home wifi, your work wifi, but also especially if you’re traveling or just out in public. Right, especially airport,
hotel, just coffee shop wifi, you never know who’s gonna have
access to your information. And so I kind of think of NordVPN
as like my digital condom. Right, cause you have to
be careful when you’re giving it up, and I’m
talking about your info. Right because part of the issue isn’t just that one access point, you have to think of where
that access point has been, and your information has
been sold and then resold and resold until it’s in the wrong hands. And with NordVPN, you’re not having to compromise or inconvenience yourself. They have thousands of super fast servers in 61 countries,
absolutely no data logging. You get 24/7 customer
service, fantastic encryption, and a risk free 30 day
money back guarantee. And so with all of that said, best of all, if you go to NordVPN.com/Phil
and you use code Phil, they will give you 75%
off a three year plan and give you an extra month for free. And that special for you makes the equivalent of just $2.99 per month. So head on over to
NordVPN.com/Phil, check it out, and start protecting
yourself online today. And the first bit of awesome
today is after today’s show you should definitely check
out our brand new deep dive. We took a look at deep
fakes, where they are now, where they’re going, we even
interviewed a few people that are known for the fantastic viral deep fakes that we’ve been seeing lately. Yeah, I definitely recommend you check it out after today’s show. Then, oh I’m a sucker for this franchise, we got a brand new trailer

the secret link of the day, honestly everything I cover in
today’s show, and even more, links as always are in the
description down below. And then let’s talk about this news around Planned Parenthood and Title X. And this is an important
story because it could impact healthcare for
millions of people in America. So for those who don’t know, Title X, which is managed by the
Office of Population Affairs, is the only federal
program fully dedicated to providing family planning
and related services. It generally provides these
services to low income patients, primarily women, at a reduced
cost, and it has done so since it was enacted under
President Nixon in 1970. Over four million people
rely on it annually for things like breast cancer screenings, contraception, STI testing,
and other wellness exams. It’s also worth noting
here that Title X funds are not allowed to go to
providing an abortion. But the Trump administration
has now added a new rule to Title X that seriously
effects its reach. And that new rule states
quote “Title X providers are prohibited from referring for abortion as a method of family
planning” though exception is made in the case of
a medical emergency. And this rule goes on to
say “if a woman is pregnant, a Title X provider may provide a list of comprehensive healthcare providers, including prenatal care
providers, including some, but not the majority, who perform abortion as part of a comprehensive
healthcare practice. However, this list cannot
serve as a referral for, nor identify those who provide abortion, and Title X providers cannot indicate those on the list who provide abortion.” And what all that
essentially boils down to is that while providers can still give information about abortion, they are no longer able
to refer their patients to doctors and practices
who provide abortion, and at most they would
only be able to give them a list of doctors who may or
may not provide the service. And so following this new change, many healthcare
organizations are bowing out of Title X funding,
which could have a major impact on their ability to treat patients. And of course, one of the most notable groups exiting is Planned Parenthood, which was the largest
provider under Title X, serving close to 40% of
the program’s patients. They reportedly received about $60 million from the program each year. In some states, Planned
Parenthood is the only recipient of Title X funding, or is
far and away the largest. But even though they are voluntarily losing that federal money,
they still plan to stay open. And in a statement yesterday,
Planned Parenthood’s acting president Alexis
McGill Johnson said “I want our patients to know
while the Trump administration may have given up on you,
Planned Parenthood never will. Our doors are open today, and our doors will be open tomorrow.” And adding “our patients come
to us because they expect the best information and
health care available. And we have a commitment
to provide that to them. But the gag rule would make it impossible for us to uphold that commitment. At Planned Parenthood, we refuse to cower to the Trump-Pence administration. We will not be bullied into withholding abortion information from our patients. Our patients deserve to make their own health care decisions, not to be forced to have Donald Trump or Mike Pence make those
decisions for them.” And so with all of that, of
course there’s the question, well what does this mean
for Planned Parenthood to stay open without Title X funding? Well, likely they’re gonna have to operate with funding from other sources, which could be a huge strain on the group. It also could result in
higher out of pocket payments for patients, also possibly
longer waits for appointments as facilities could end
up having fewer employees. And of course the key thing
here is Planned Parenthood is not the only organization
withdrawing from Title X. Both Maine Family Planning
and the Vermont Department of Health have announced
their exit from the program. Maine Family Planning saying
that if they stayed in Title X it “would fundamentally
compromise the relationship our patients have with
us as trusted providers of this most personal
and private health care.” And adding “it is simply
wrong to deny patients accurate information about
and access to abortion care.” And it’s very possible that
other states could soon follow. While they’ve not officially
dropped out of Title X yet, states like Maryland, Washington,
Hawaii, Oregon, Illinois, and New York have already
threatened to do so. Now, of course, with all of this, this didn’t come out of nowhere. There are also people that are happy to see Planned Parenthood
not getting this money. And as far as the reasoning,
it’s kind of summarized in a White House statement that argue that this “new proposed rule would not cut funds from the Title X program. Instead, it would ensure that taxpayers do not indirectly fund abortions.” Right, and so the mindset
there is while that money is not directly going
to pay for an abortion, it does help fund an
organization that is involved in that process, even if
the money is used elsewhere in the organization, because
it’s still the organization. And as far as what’s
next, Planned Parenthood and the American Medical Association have filed suits to block the rule, and it’ll be interesting
to see what happens there. Back in July, district
courts did take their side, but the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals allowed it to go into effect. So with that said, the
case is still ongoing, and there is an oral argument in the Ninth Circuit Court scheduled
for September 23rd. Also the House of
Representatives have passed a spending bill with language
that would block the rule. But of course that is
going to still require Senate approval, and then the president, unless you have a veto-proof vote. But ultimately, that is
where with this story as of right now, it’ll
be interesting to see what we see other states do,
what happens in the court. Of course, very interested to
know your thoughts on this. And then, let’s talk
about the Amazon fire, and not that one, although
very reasonably priced. What we’re talking about today though, is something far more serious,
it’s also the reason that you may have seen pray for
Amazonia trending on Twitter. Over the last few weeks, fires have been destroying huge parts of the Amazon. And if you didn’t know
that this was happening, you are not alone, tons of people tweeting this morning that they were just learning that the Amazon had
been burning for weeks. Others pointing out the lack of media coverage around the fires. Some also criticizing Brazilin
president Jair Bolsonaro for not doing anything to stop the fires. And understand, despite the
fact that there has been so little media coverage,
these fires are a huge deal. Right now there are numerous
fires in multiple states that are basically burning down the Amazon rainforest totally unchecked. Last week, NASA released
satellite images of just a massive smoke layer covering
a huge part of the forest. With one NASA researcher telling reporters that the smoke layer spanned
about 1.2 million square miles. Which I know that’s just a huge number, so to give you a little bit of context, that’s about one third of
the entire United States. The smoke from these fires
has also continued to spread, endangering the health
of people and animals living in the area,
according to local reports. With the smoke getting
so bad in some areas that about two weeks ago
the state of Amazonas declared a state of emergency. And just yesterday, people in Sao Paulo, which is all the way on the
other side of the country, were sharing pictures
of the sky turning black in the middle of the afternoon,
which some scientists have attributed to the
smoke from the Amazon fires. Now as far as what started these fires, numerous experts have
said that these fires are caused by humans, and we
know this for a few reasons. Well first of all, the Amazon rainforest is comparatively fire
resistant because it is so wet and humid, I mean, it is
a rainforest after all. And while there are often
fires this time of year, they are usually caused
by extreme drought. But despite the fact
there haven’t really been any extreme weather events
there that could cause this many fires, fire outbreaks still rose by 70% this year compared to 2018. And secondly, fire is
actually used in the Amazon as an agricultural technique,
called slash and burn, to clear land for planting crops. And notably here, slash and
burn is also one of the major techniques used in the Amazon
for illegal deforestation. And since Bolsonaro took
office back in January, deforestation has rapidly increased, and in fact, according to satellite data from the Brazilian National
Institute for Space Research, deforestation in the Amazon increased by around 245% in July of 2019. Right, and that’s just from comparing it to last year, July of 2018. And according to the Guardian, that is the same as
destroying three football fields worth of forest every minute. That is huge. Now despite the fact
that the data came from satellite images, Bolsonaro
has described it as fake news. After the INPE reported those numbers, Bolsonaro fired the head of that agency and told reporters quote “the numbers, as I understand it, were
released with the objective of harming the name of
Brazil and its government.” But as many others have pointed
out, Bolsonaro campaigned on opening the Amazon
to resource extraction. And since taking office, he has made it a key component of his economic policy. Until Bolsonaro’s
election, when protecting the Amazon has been at
the core of Brazilian environmental policy for
the last two decades, but now, also with the
help of powerful lobbyists, he has rolled back
environmental protections, ratcheted up access to
mining and agriculture by clearing huge sections of forest. Notably many of the areas
that Bolsonaro has opened up to agriculture mining are
protected indigenous lands, which Bolsonaro has said are too big for the number of people who live there. According to reports, more
than 800,000 indigenous people live in 450 demarcated territories which cover about 12% of
land across the country. Most of those territories
are in the Amazon region, some are entirely isolated. And reportedly this
strategy has endangered both the indigenous populations
and the forest itself, especially as it is widely
believed among experts and scientists that
protecting indigenous lands is one of the best strategies
to conserve forests. And this is especially
important for the Amazon because the Amazon basin is absolutely critical to stabilizing
the global climate. The entire basin spans about three million square miles and it
includes 40% of the world’s tropical forests, 20% of its fresh water, and it produces 20% of the air we breathe. It also has many keystone ecosystems which are crucial to global biodiversity. Right, the importance of the Amazon really shouldn’t be understated. And around 60% of this
forest is in Brazil, which is a country where a
number of the top officials in the government do not
believe that climate change is real, and who are
convinced that any criticism that Bolsonaro’s policies
are harming the environment just come from civil society
groups and foreign governments that are trying to sabotage
the administration. I mean hell, just last
week, just so you understand the mindset, when asked by
a reporter whether Brazil can grow more food and
protect the environment at the same time, Bolsonaro responded “it’s enough to eat a little less. You talk about environmental pollution. It’s enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world.” That is the guy in charge, that is the guy who fired the guy who gave him facts, because he felt like
those facts were wrong. And understand, this is
something that doesn’t just effect him and the
people who voted him in. And there needs to be more
people talking about it, and people with more
power talking about it. But ultimately this story
is also a showcasing that the people can be
drivers, because the people taking to the internet, they’re the reason that I and any other outlet
now are covering this. But that’s where I’m gonna
leave this one, and of course pass the question off to you,
what are your thoughts here? And that’s where we’re
going to end today’s show. And hey, if you like this video, you like diving into the news with us, hit us with a like, a

  1. I give you throat punches, I take them back. I give you glasses, I take them off. I'm trying to prepare you for life.
    Weight Watchers 00:06
    – Felix Wedding 4:00 – TIA 4:54 – Planned Parenthood 7:38 – Amazon 11:46

  2. Kurbo seems like a good idea. I live close to an economical disadvantaged area where the mothers to maximize out their food stamps stock up on not only cans with who knows what but also feed their young children chips and soda. Let us just say they that they look more like hippopotamuses than gazelles due to this. If there is an app that can encourage these children to eat more healthy, and through that also encourage their mothers to buy more fruit and greens than processed foods, I for one think this is a great idea. Unfortunately people who criticize this are more often than not the ones who are middle class and have not been economically challenged ever. And lets face it, if you are the pudgiest girl in school, maybe you should look over your diet as being over weight is neither good for your heart, knees, liver nor kidneys.

  3. paying to view a wedding marriage monetizing ..hmmmm smart move…lolololol yeah … now waiting till they start monetizing celebrity funerals or wakes…lol

  4. I am recovering from an eating disorder that began at 11 years old when my Cerebral Palsy plus puberty resulted in me developing a fat, curvy body on a 4th grader’s height. I was taken to Weight Watchers at 14, which only made my illness worse.

    I am very concerned about the existence of such an app. It’s dangerous, especially with the way it’s phrased. ‘Make parents happy’ should NEVER be a reason CHILDREN lose weight. I’m scared for the kids using this. It automatically throws you into such an uncomfortable and unhealthy mindset.

  5. lmfao, of course people would have issues with an app to loose weight aimed towards children. I love how they want it taken down too. These kids are in danger and its not by the app. Well one day they'll finally see and it'll be too late.

  6. Stop whit BS , if u feed ur children whit healthy food they won't get fat .
    u let ur kids all those bread pizza MCDONALD'S schokleds etc… no wonder they are fat.
    if ur children consume more food than they shouldn't be laying on there bed like there are on pension 24/7. They need to burn all those Calories they consume be stay healthy .

  7. The sooner planed parenthood goes down the better off people in this world will be especially the unborn ones. Planed parenthood has killed 7.6 MILLION PEOPLE!!!!!! seance it first started its genocide in 1970. Regardless if your atheist or religious there is no denying that life is amazing you have a child that is made up of millions of cells an those cells come together to form a unique individual whom there will only ever be one of. The odds of a child being created at a certain place an time with specific traits an quality are astronomical. An the worlds answer is to kill them. I'm sure if Hitler was still around he we would be overjoyed to know his eugenics programs didn't go to waste.

  8. People are worried about their 8 yr old kids and how they view their body weights but if they wanna change their gender fuck yeah let’s get those hormones in there bois

  9. Oh my God, kids will be healthier….. so terrible. Seriously, they aren't shaming anyone, but I guess in 2019 you can't be doing better for yourself when someone else isn't cuz they'll get butthurt..ffs

  10. well ghosts i guess its time to return to bolivia,i though we got all the bad guys while we were there i guess i was wrong

  11. Planned Parenthood started by a racist leftist who wanted to kill black babies and they did not have to lose any money but they want to kill babies so they refused to comply, yes you read that correctly they rather kill babies than comply.

  12. Surprised people are complaining about health apps creating eating disorders in kids when there is an obesity epidemic they don't seem to want to address. Body positivity won't help you pay medical bills or stop that early heart attack.

  13. Holy shit Bolsonaro is endangering the entire planet with his deforestation policies the people of Brazil needs to get this f-cker out of office,

  14. I don't like weight watchers as a company, but jesus they are just trying to make kids healthier, oh no, telling kids to eat food thats good for them! The humanity!! Give me a fucking break

  15. Our president is disgusting, he’s killing the Amazon, our retirement funds, trying to kill public healthcare and education. PLEASE HELP!

  16. Just noticed your videos are being edited amazingly. Sorry to admit, I have been sleeping on your channel recently. it's sometimes hard to hear the news when it's so dark & you're going through something dark yourself.
    Anyways I'm back you beautiful bastard!

  17. please Brazilian President started the fires…. give it a few months and he will be like… oh since we have all this open lands now due to the fire we will start "development" on it, then watch the Chinese and other foreign Companies come marching in…

  18. Yes, it's Kurbo that's creating the "unhealthy relationship" with food, as if that unhealthy relationship didn't already exist to cause obesity and other health problems. It's not WW's fault your kid is fat at 8 years old, they shouldn't be blamed for promoting wellness. Wtf is wrong with people?

  19. People complain about everything and seem to praise obesity. If used right the app seems harmless. Americans need it. Fat is not healthy.

  20. Planned parenthood was caught selling aborted fetuses, now they have so much money
    that they can tell the government, we don't need your money, and everyone thinks there sticking up for the little guy. The world is a literal Mad house.

  21. What's wrong with experiencing some shame? Is shielding a kid from every negative feeling a 'healthy childhood'? If you're fat and feel bad about it, that's fine. The bad feeling will motivate you to do something. If that something isn't perfect, that's fine too, you'll do something else. America and much of the rest of western world is too comfortable doing nothing. And it's killing you.

  22. weight loss for kids is weird. Granted, there are plenty of kids that are as wide as they are tall now, but when I was growing up, and just about everyone else in my family, I was pudgy until I hit a growth spurt, then not so much. I was still big, but I didn't have rolls anymore. Just let kids be kids, they don't all have to be transgender supermodels training for a decathlon when they're not saving fires from puppies. Let em run around outside with a stick. They're kids.

  23. The amazon fires not being covered by the media is so fucking devastating? Indigenous people’s lands are gone, animals homes are gone, and our oxygen supply is depleting & turning more toxic… my heart is truly broken

  24. So the hard work and success of another human being is now body shaming?

    Telling a child not to eat fucking McDonald's and Ice Cream everyday is a bad thing too?
    It doesn't matter if you love yourself or not, nobody gives a shit, but you do need to respect yourself if you want the world to respect you. Being a slob will not get you that respect.

  25. Unless an abortion is necessary to save the mother's life it is MURDER. Murder is not healthcare and should not be taxpayer funded, even indirectly which.

  26. I think the app is smart… I wish I had a diet app as a kid… I was obese and now I'm struggling more as an adult to be healthy… parents have failed kids…

  27. For WW it looks like a typical weight loss app. There are a bunch in the App Store. Childhood obesity is very common and has tripled since the 70’s. I’d like to think the parents who have the app for their children are doing it for future health care reasons (like lowering the risk of heart related problems and blood pressure problems). I don’t think it body shames.

  28. the actress is delusional, she looks stunning, if she would look the way she supposed to before the diet as a child, she would be 60 pounds heavier and i bet she would be not so successful cos of that… looks matter especially as an actress… so yes maybe she had a shittier childhood cos she could not eat all the normal things her friends ate, but half of her carrier is based on her looks, so… its a business decision , granted that was made by her parents. But still. i would say its better to have a lean fit body then being fat and be fine with it…

  29. Maybe i misunderstood the rules behind the new title 10, but it seems like it basically just stops the doctors from straight up saying "hey this place will give you an abortion". they can still put those places that offer that on the list of places to go to and all the patient would have to do is call up and ask that clinic if they did that procedure there. if that is the case it seems really stupid to no longer accept funding.

  30. Oh what this Jameela chick is 'outraged' over something else, seems all she does is moan on twitter. What a boring life that must be to be so made over almost everything.

  31. When my generation grows up wearing gas masks and not remembering what a flower looked like I’m gonna blame the corrupt officials and boomers for fucking up the future of earth and humanity as a hole

  32. People mad at an app that encourages healthy eating is kind of ridiculous. If a kid feels bad for being overweight, I promise you it isn't because they saw some before and after pictures. It's because of mean things kids are saying at school. It's because they can't do certain things that other kids do. If they see a before and after, maybe they'll realize that with some hard work and discipline in their lifestyle choices, they can get there too. The issue is that kids are rarely, if ever, in control of their eating habits. This really falls on the parents. Kids are not responsible for what food is in the house and what meals they're being served.

    I am obviously not for shaming any person that is overweight, child or otherwise, but this obsession with body positivity over being actually healthy is just feel good nonsense that hurts more than it helps.

  33. famous celeb had the sense to make healthy life choices at a young age and has the nerve to condemn people who encourage it

  34. If you think the weight watchers app is “body shaming” then don’t download it…

    Also, as a chubby kid who got into bodybuilding, supplements, etc at a very young age. I wish there was an app geared towards kids trying to live a healthier life. Although, I’m sure it’s the same hysterical people who think posting opinion articles on Facebook makes them conscientious.

  35. As someone who isn't American I'll tell you not to be little b**ches cause your the fattest people in the world. It's not body shaming it's a realization cause most fat kids have parents who aren't doing the apps job for them. Hence the apps here cause your parents aren't. Maybe their busy or fat

  36. Amazon isn’t cleared for crops for us… it’s cleared for grazing land for cows and crops that go to feed animals. Let’s not forget who caused this: animal agriculture. No one seems to want to mention that.

  37. The Kurbo thing reminds me of my fitness pal. When I was in highschool my eating disorder really took hold and I used my fitness pal everyday and you could even set your daily calorie limit to 500 calories and when I went over that I purged. It was an extremely dangerous app. Idk if it’s changed but it was not good and fueled my disorder

  38. Apps like Kurbo also track these kids & dismiss any rights to privacy. Weight watchers is only in it for the money, that's just how companies work, even if they aren't selling the info right away, they will in the future.

  39. 1:37 being mindful of what you eat is considered an unhealthy relationship with your food????? Uh Phil not to disrespect you but this almost doesn’t seem worth covering it just seems like a bunch of fat acceptance bullshit trying to stop kids from living healthy

    2:20 no weight loss is just a byproduct of eating healthier and weight loss is just one of like 9 options they provide the other seem more desireable that “feel better in my clothes” seems good

  40. I wish I had kurbo when I was a kid, I'm not overweight but I definitely did not eat properly and I really wish I had something to help guide me and the straight forward simple and hands on app that is kurdo seems like a helpful tool. It on the parents and teachers to help guide their children toward a mentally and physically healthy environment

  41. The gag rule is a direct attack on Americans healthcare and is purposefully trying to punish honest doctors and disadvantaged youths. I would not be alive today without Planned Parenthood, because of the backwards & misguided laws. I will continue to support them and honest sexual education.

  42. Please become an advocate for the Amazon issue. Don’t just post this video and leave it at that Phil. As someone with a voice that will be heard please keep talking about this and bringing attention to this.

  43. Less trees = Less oxygen.
    Less oxygen = Less people.
    Less people = More trees.
    More Trees = More Oxygen.
    More Oxygen yada yada yada. You get the idea. We'll be fine.

    In all seriousness though, this guy is an idiot. There's no need to speed up the cycle. Especially for money. This is going to effect the whole world. Something has to be done.

  44. As someone who had an eating disorder as a 12 year old- this seems toxic to me. I struggled with binging and purging for years and that eventually exploded into anorexia. My parents’ comments about how great it was that I was loosing weight, just encouraged me to eat less. At 17 years old I still have a bad relationship with food. I share this story, not for attention, but to show you what can happen if adults in your life are constantly pushing you to loose weight and encouraging unhealthy eating habits!

  45. So on the whole planned parenthood thing… firstly I support them refusing to be influenced and I support choice. I’m wondering if it would be possible to opt out of paying taxes because the government does many things that go against my beliefs. My taxes may not go directly to those things, but it’s still the government ?

  46. I never liked Weight Watchers. Sure, watching calorie intake can be crucial to weight loss. I personally use MyFitnessPal to track nutrition and calorie intake. But 4 days of cardio a week for 30-60 minutes can do so much more for the body. Toning while losing weight also prevents the excess skin and sagging from past stretching.

    That all being said, I'm a 33 year old fat girl. I struggle with weight loss, making time for the gym, and overall dedication to my body. A lot of that stems from misconceptions I developed when I was younger which could probably be attributed to multiple things. However, I'm the only one who can change those misconceptions and teach my 3 children what is healthy for their mind and their body. /end rant

  47. So if plained parenthood was able to support themselves without government help than why havet they? That just tells me they have been leaching off the government and took funds from people that could have used it. Even if u believe abortion should be illegal this should anger you.

  48. Too many fat people in this country gonna cause health care to rise. Have some agency, fat shaming is good for society, being fat isn't

  49. So we are going to freak about about youth weight watchers app, but not say much about youth gender reassignments?

  50. The problem often with kids is their diet is almost 100% controlled by their parents. Well, parents can give kids options on what to eat and at school, they may eat things their parents would never feed them who makes children eat healthy are parents. My mom used to always suggest I lose weight start me on a diet then get me Macdonalds or some other junk food a few days later then just give up on the diet. When I was old enough to choose my own food I skipped breakfast most days, left the school to get food when the weather was nice, and then still ate whatever she gave me for dinner which was normally not healthy. Lucky enough this did not completely ruin my self-esteem, I am comfortable in my own skin but I do constantly feel like I need to be on a diet. I occasionally have days where if I can't come up with something healthy for me to eat I will barely eat or days where I decide to get junk food so I will eat way more then is reasonable. Any app dedicated to kids diets either needs to be for teenagers which encourages eating but the healthy options and proper portion sizes or for parents on how to teach younger kids to eat the same way in a mentally healthy way.

    Edit: Just realized all I had food-wise yesterday was a piece candy and a bottle pop and have not had anything yet today. Slipping into these mindsets are incredibly tricky to control and parents need to avoid there kids building these natural instincts first

  51. I see lots of people commenting but none taking action…. a whole bunch of money was poured in when Notre Dame burned but no help has come our way eventhough the fires have gone on for 2 weeks, fyi my country's eastern side is on fire too, it's not only Brazil

  52. Well were fucked, these people are so consumed by greed they could care less for future generations or the future of humanity. It makes me so angry that these bags of shit are in power.

  53. Here is a link to someone starting a raid event to have a water fight in the amazon! Lets save the forest!

  54. jair should have never been voted into power, it shows how easily people are manipulated, misled and who willingly want to be lied to and riled up, this man fired somebody for reporting facts, and then says it's better for the climate if everyone shits every second day??? this man is out of his mind, i really pity the people who voted for him and who support him, i would hate to have such a low IQ that i would vote for such a loser who looks like a scrotum.

  55. They should be focusing on educating parents on healthy eating and what to feed their children at an early age so that they are not hooked on sugary and processed foods instead of shaming the children who are literally a product of their parents poor eating habits.

  56. Congratulations Felix and Marzia yay! They seem so happy and genuine, I fully support happiness spreading more happiness. Love overpowers hate

  57. Wow look at Brazil's president taking after Trump. Thanks for introducing fake news and firing heads of agencies if they dont tell you what you want to hear. I want to go hide for the day

  58. As for the weight watchers thing, it's really more of a parent's responsibility to keep their children healthy. Making an app for children isn't going to help much when they're not the ones buying the food. Teach parents to instill healthier lifestyles and habits into their children's daily routines if you want to help childhood obesity.

  59. If I understand this correctly, it was Planned Parenthood's choice to remove themselves from Title X funding. If abortion is such a small percentage of what they do like they say it is (they claim abortion is only 3% of the care they provide) then why is this a problem?? The problem is that 3% is so highly skewed it is ridiculous. Call any Planned Parenthood and they will tell you they do not give prenatal care, but only when it is apart of the abortion process. Know how many abortions they performed last year?
    In one year.
    Let that number sink in of how many lives that is.
    I think the idea of Planned Parenthood is a good where it offers testing, contraceptives, and aid to low income individuals, but the government does not need to pay for 332,757 abortions every year. Check their annual reports and you will see they are not hurting for cash. Planned Parenthood you are not the victim here.
    I know my opinion isn't a popular one, but someone has to speak for the unborn.
