Forks Over Knives - A Change In Lifestyle

A client of mine gave me the DVD to Forks Over Knives, which I watched over the weekend. It was a pretty impressive film showing how our Western diet is responsible for cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, allergies and a host of other illnesses. Basically, the message is: If it has a mother, don't eat it!

The film inspired me to purchase the book at Amazon.com (where I got the photo to the left) and I have also gone the extra step and ordered the cookbook from Alan Goldhamer titled The Health Promoting Cookbook (also from Amazon.com) so I can begin making changes to the way I eat. In addition to that, I am checking out Pam Popper, ND on the website Wellness Forum for more information on ways to improve my health and my quality of life.

My doctor has had me on statins for several years now BUT I recently saw on the evening news that statins CAN lead to diabetes. I saw my doctor and let her know I was stopping the statins. She was in agreement and said in six months, we will run blood work to see how my changes in diet are taking care of my needs. 

That was BEFORE I saw Forks Over Knives and purchased my new cookbook to a vegan lifestyle. If I can simply change what I eat and not only drop weight but take myself OFF statins forever, I would be crazy NOT to give it a try!

Since our health is a major issue as we age, I wanted to share this with everyone! Please do yourself, your children and your family a favor by checking out the book, movie and websites.

Hi Barbara-Jo, I thought you were already watching pretty much what you put into your body so this is just a logical step for you.  I guess there will be a bit of a getting-used-to time but improved health and well being will be your reward!

Silvia - the hard part will be NO meat..........no steak once a month, no pulled pork, no fish, no chicken sandwiches................put I also don't want to take pills or have aches and pains..........so with those choices, I will go vegan!

Dale -I hope that she enjoys them! As we age we really need to get on board with these things........I am realizing that and wish I had done this 30 years ago!
