A friend recommended that I watch a movie/documentary called Forks Over Knives. I didn’t get around to it until last night around 10 p.m. Once I started watching I couldn’t stop and it was an hour and a half long. I found it on hulu.com. It follows 2 doctors in their quest to prove how changing your diet to a whole food/plant-based diet can actually stop and in some cases reverse certain diseases. I was amazed. And intrigued. And motivated. And disgusted. And dumbfounded. And And And……
My friend and her husband have gone the route of changing their diet because of health issues. They haven’t cut out all dairy or all meat but have added in more whole foods and more plant-based foods. They have at least 2 vegetarian meals a week. They have seen amazing results. Not only have they lost weight, they have had reduced symptoms of some health issues, severe headaches have gone away, and they are just feeling better overall.
I don’t want to say much more because I want you to watch it for yourself. It will definitely make you think differently about what you eat. I can’t wait to hear what you think.
