How to make healthy eating unbelievably easy | Luke Durward | TEDxYorkU

After breaking his leg, undergraduate student Luke Durward used his time to return home and mentor his little brother on healthy eating. While illustrating his brother's dramatic transformation, Durward shares the obvious secret that is repeatedly overlooked by unsuccessful dieters. TEDxYorkU held its 4th annual event on March 4, 2014 at York University. The theme for the event was Combustion. Follow us on Twitter @tedxyorku In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Miss Amazon: I wish he were naked!!

Jenny Abson: Frozen in front of an audience............... been there done that!

Lee Quinonez: What a nice big brother!

Jorge Y Julio: In love with him

Jorge Y Julio: Obsessed

AuNaturelMommy: As someone who is fearful of public speaking, I commend him for powering through this despite the hiccups. And great message, too.

Underdog: is this a presentation to help me sleep. jesus christ this is painfully slow

Mark Perrie: Guy could have shortened this by at least 6 minutes.

Angharad's Opinions: This is a good idea but impossible when you live with other people. I have tried this many times by going shopping with my mother so she would stop buying so many chips and unhealthy foods. When we got to the chip isle she put the exact same terrible foods! Nothing I said made her not get them. so there is no way that I can use this technique.

rcgrcg123123: Inspiring to see someone who is obviously nervous doing public speaking. Good for him.

Stephaine Price: I thought the speech was very heart felt and helped his little brother along the way and lots people of your willing to try

Clara Miranda: Good talk on making the environment work fr u.Wish he had shown a food chart too.

James Anthony: If he says "little brother" one more time Ima slap a bitch, seriously does his brother not have a name?

Brandie Gruss: Tough crowd! He made a joke to make his leg break seem not so negative and no one laughed lol

Rose Xxx: Watching this whilst eating chocolate

Amanda Holmes: Of course it worked for him. He has no money or access to go and buy food. He was in a controlled enviroment by adults. Food addiction is not as simple as that I am sorry

Catherine Cullen: Keep up the good work

bloom princeton: I dont know why is everyone hating on him in the comments, if you all managed to summarize a 10 min lecture in a sentence then he DELIVERED what he came to do!! by hearing a real life story of someone who did it actually makes you believe that you as well can switch your eating habits to better ones. plus you also get that you dont need a complicated dramatic life story to have a reason to do something!! he used a set back TO HELP HIS little brother which i think is absolutely inspiring!!!

Excelsior Books: A great talk. Simple narrative style with physical evidence. Thank you Luke. You're a great brother.

Tim Bauer: Thanks for sharing!
