11 Bad Habits That Damage Your Brain

Learn more about the worst things for your brain so you can better support your brain function moving forward.


0:00 Introduction: The worst things for your brain
10:00 Grass-fed beef vs. grain-fed beef for your brain
15:35 Learn more about brain health!

Today I’m going to share some of the top things that can severely affect your brain.

Top things that negatively affect your brain:
1. Chronic exposure to bad news
2. Toxic personalities
3. Spending too much time inside
4. Low-fat, low-cholesterol diets
5. High-grain diets
6. High-sugar diets
7. Low-stress to no stress at all
8. High-stress
9. Snacking
10. Things that decrease gut microbes
11. Consuming grain-fed animal products

One of the most surprising things on this list is grain-fed animal products. I recently participated in an interesting beef nutrient-density study. This study compared the beef from my farm to grass-fed beef and grain-fed beef, looking at factors that contribute to health and disease.

It turns out that the beef from my farm was significantly higher in phytonutrients and vitamin B3. It also had a fantastic omega-6 fatty acid to omega-3 fatty acid ratio. Not only that, but the beef I sent was low in glycation end-products and homocysteine, which are both harmful to the brain.

Grass-fed beef also did much better than grain-fed beef when looking at these same factors. My beef may have done best because I raise my cattle on pastures with a diversity of weeds for the cows to consume.

Overall, it’s crucial to consume grass-fed, grass-finished beef or 100% grass-fed beef to support your brain and your overall health.

    Although this channel is mainly focused on nutrition can we expect some episodes on stress reduction, relaxation,emotions,exercises,HIIT.
    These topic play a huge role in heath besides nutrition.
    Everyone avoid to speak about mental health but that matters the most nowadays.

    • Lisa Miller on January 8, 2023 at 12:33 pm

      Do a search on YT for Dr. BERG + What you are looking for… he has video on almost all.

      I do yoga daily, it really helps, even 20 mins has a positive effect. I watch ‘yoga with Adriene’ on YouTube. It’s free and she is a superb teacher. Well worth a look.

    • Awesome kids on January 8, 2023 at 1:48 pm

    • Self-Law on January 8, 2023 at 11:42 am

      And your possible toxic self as well. You may appear that way to others. Self reflection and objective awareness and self responsibility. No one is perfect. We all are flawed.

    • you r enough 💜 on January 8, 2023 at 12:27 pm

      @Self-Law believe me , over the years I’ve done a lot of self reflecting. Thanks !!

    • Love, Earth & Spirit on January 8, 2023 at 5:38 pm

      Upstair neighbours in very old (noisy) building. For years i tried but very stressfull. I sleep in my car now. Better move in 2023 even though it has other disadvantages?

  6. ꧁༒Set Apart༒꧂ on January 8, 2023 at 11:33 am

    Wonderful advice to start a brand new Year…. A blessed New Year to you Dr.Berg and Mrs. Berg and family! 😀 And thank you for this journey we can take with you!

    When I was growing up in England the field behind our home had a huge number of wild flowers and weeds. There is a farm outside of Witney Oxfordshire that has an ancient pasture that is being preserved for the huge number of plants. The old time farmers used to say that if the cattle felt a bit off color they knew which plants to eat to feel better but the new farmers that did not leave the old field alone did not have that benefit.

  8. Esther Edwards on January 8, 2023 at 11:48 am

    I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant and they recommend 5-6 small meals a day with 2 of those meals being snacks. Even after I gave birth this diet was still recommended. Thanks, for the info, I’ll try OMAD instead of snacking.

    • Kristann Chigro on January 8, 2023 at 1:35 pm

      I want to try it also, not sure what time, what to eat and what can I drink when not eating! Help

  9. A Wise Person Told Me on January 8, 2023 at 11:48 am

    Listening to Dr. Eric Berg I dropped over 70lbs! 💪🏾 I had an unhealthy relationship with food. These videos enhanced my quality of life!

    • Pete Zahutt on January 8, 2023 at 3:47 pm

      Congrats, great job. so far it’s 47 for me

  10. Brian on January 8, 2023 at 12:18 pm

    Dr. Berg, thanks for this.
    This is a video pretty much everyone should see.
    I’ve pretty much stopped watching national news, it’s just a pile of stress.

  11. Faith Hinson on January 8, 2023 at 12:42 pm

    Love Dr Berg ! He always seems to do a video exactly when I need it ❤️ been watching him for years, and know he’s one of the very few doctors we can actually trust! Thanks Dr Berg

    • Chelito Var-Gas on January 8, 2023 at 3:41 pm

      Nah nah nah!! This videos are about me!

    • Big Info on January 8, 2023 at 5:50 pm

      That’s basically a fairly sizeable child! Way to go, I’m down sixteen so far so thanks for the boost.

  12. Robert Johnson on January 8, 2023 at 12:47 pm

    Very, very interesting about the “better than grass fed” beef. As a kid on the way to school there where tall weeds that grew by an electric fence, the cows would risk shock to get to them. We’d pick them and all the cows would come over for the treat.

  13. Kamdy Kasiem on January 8, 2023 at 12:49 pm

    To take care of the #1 problem, I stopped watching the CNN and Rachel M. And it has been great, so identify your own chronic bad news and block it/them for your overall cognitive health as well.
    Thanks Dr Berg

    • Colbyrules! my doggie on January 8, 2023 at 4:10 pm

      CNN and Rachael?!!! 🥶
      You’ve made the biggest step forward for healthy healing friend, by cutting out 2 of the most toxic media’s out there. Kudos!

  14. Robin Walker @robinsnestradio on January 8, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    Good morning everyone. I live in a “Senior Citizens” building. I now have so many of my neighbors and friends watching Dr Berg. We have made positive changes in our diets and our activity and I can see the difference in my skin, my mental health and my physical strength. A huge Thank You Doctor Berg! 🙋🏾😘

      This is outstanding!!

    • WH2012 on January 8, 2023 at 5:12 pm

      @C.L. Montoya Bingo! Ditto! 🎯

    • Titanium Master on January 8, 2023 at 5:14 pm


    • Alan on January 8, 2023 at 6:53 pm

      @C.L. Montoya it’s a senior citizens building not a place specifically for elderly. She just happens to live somewhere with older folk.

  15. Joy on January 8, 2023 at 2:13 pm

    Dr. Berg is amazing and wonderful! Thank you so much for your contribution to health, vitality, beauty and wisdom! Much love ❤

    • George Vavoulis on January 8, 2023 at 7:01 pm

      And he explains everything so well without any judgemental attitude

  16. Dora on January 8, 2023 at 2:18 pm

    The media we consume daily has an impact on our thinking, behaviour and emotions. We have all had toxic people dust us with their poison. Sometimes it’s more like a drenching. Being able to spot their harmful behaviour is the first step to minimising their impact. I have been contemplating cutting out toxic extended family members. Thank you Dr Berg for great video again.

  17. Steven Whaley on January 8, 2023 at 2:30 pm

    This guy is spot-on. He has cutting edge information for anyone wanting to improve their health.

  18. summer&sunshine on January 8, 2023 at 3:42 pm

    Thank you Dr. Berg. I have been depressed since last month sadly. Some of these things you listed are factors along with health issues, financial issues and car issues all at once. Hoping for better days and to keep taking care of myself.

  19. Lefty on January 8, 2023 at 3:55 pm

    Thank you Dr. Berg! I’ve said goodbye to alcohol thanks to your advices and I already feel much better because of your diet advices. I go through my days with a smile because I know that what I’m doing is good for my health!

    Thank you again!

  20. UNCLETQB on January 8, 2023 at 4:05 pm

    Dr. Berg is getting better and better as time goes by. This video is invaluable.
