After Years Of Dieting, We Came To The Conclusion That Our Food Was Killing Us...
So we decided to change what we eat!
Why and how we have changed our food in order to live better and longer.
According to doctors we trust... meat has a protein in it that is the underlying cause of heart disease! Dairy has a protein in it that is a major cause of cancer! Gluten causes digestive problems and therefore a compromised immune system. And eating genetically modified plants and animals is a roll of the dice where we don't even KNOW what is at stake!
This blog is a collectioin of information about what we have done to change our diets and why. You may choose to do all of these things or none of them. That is for you to decide. But if you're still reading this far, I suspect you are looking for answers to the same questions we are and I hope you find this site very helpful. We are embedding videos from various doctors we have found on pages of the site so our readers can see and evaluate their information for themselves.
Our plan is to model our diet after that of people who live in parts of the world where heart disease and cancer are virtually unknown. If you look at the section of our site called "What's 4 Supper" you can see that the meals we eat look great. You can't taste the picture, but you can make the same food yourself and try it.
Our Plant-Based Whole Foods Journey Started With This Video...
In December 2012 I came across a trailer on YouTube for a video called "Forks Over Knives" and after watching this 2 minute clip, I ordered the full version on DVD. Here is the video that grabbed my attention...
The 2 minutes & 12 second video that changed my life...
Does this quote from the video sound familiar to you?
"I got two pills I take for my diabetes, then I got one I take for cholesterol, high blood pressure, and then I take bietta which is an injectible..."
I strongly urge you to watch "Forks Over Knives" multiple times. I believe it has intelligent answers to questions about...
High Blood Pressure
(and those are just a start!)
New Information And A New Solution...
Doing Something Different!!!
The information in the video "Forks Over Knives" completely changed the way I looked at my battle against obesity, and by inferrence against heart disease and cancer. In a nutshell, the two featured doctors in this video promote eating a plant-based whole-foods diet. As one doctor says in the video "I know of nothing else in medicine that can come close to what a plant-based diet can do."
This website is a journal of the discoveries Holly and I make as we move toward better health by changing to a plant-based whole-foods lifestyle. I hope you enjoy reading and that you find answers to your own questions here.
Disclaimer... "We are just like most of you!"
Neither of us are trained in the medical field, nor did we come into this knowing anything more than the general population knows about nutrition or bio-chemistry. Holly has a background as a musician and music teacher while my background is electrical engineer then sales and marketing.
We both became small business owners when we couldn't stand the corporate 9-to-5 any longer. While we still own and operate our own businesses, they are not related to medical or diet. This website is about our struggle to move away from the standard American diet toward a plant-based whole-foods way of eating.
We are NOT giving medical advice here! We ARE pointing to medical advice we are finding on the web and encourage readers to evaluate the advice given by others in light of their own situation. Discuss this information with your doctor if you want a medical opinion.
If you decide to JOIN US in this lifestyle then I hope you find the information here helpful in making the transition.
