Short and simple review –
When people ask me what movie and/or book they should read to learn about following a plant based lifestyle, I always recommend Forks over Knives first. Since the movie came out they released a cookbook, books, smartphone app, and more to help you in your journey as you follow a plant based life style. If you take the time, you can search the internet, your local bookstore, or library and you will find thousands of resources concerning a plant based diet. From my experience, you will not find a better resource than Forks over knives if you are interested in learning more about a vegetarian diet. The video discusses what many call the “diseases of affluence”. The diseases that occur from injesting too many processed and/or animal based foods. As you watch the video, you will see the personal jouney of Dr T. Colin Cambell and Dr Caldwell Esselstyn and their commitment to helping the viewer improve their health and reverse the effects of poor eating habits. “Their research led them to a startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented – and in many cases reversed – by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet.”
If you are struggling with excess weight and/or the diseases of affluence, please take the time and watch this video then follow its principles.
Many will list as a New Year’s resolution to improve their overall health and/or lose weight. This is a great first step!
