I notice that my clock is reminding me to weigh-in when I get up in the morning. Pretty nice feature I think. It has kept my weigh-in on my mind, so I think it was definitely a nice widget to use for the blog. I write the night before, so by the time I weigh, this article will have already posted. There will be two articles tomorrow then, so keep your eyes peeled.
Ok, so this is what is going on here. I have been looking for resources on clean eating, and I ran across a documentary called “Forks not Knives.” It is on Netflix under documentary. If you don’t have Netflix, it may be on Amazon Prime. If all else fails, you can actually watch it on Amazon for $3.99. I’m not one to easily advocate for products, but this video is worth every penny and every minute. It is 1 hr 36 minutes long. Full of research that will excite you to make MAJOR changes in your eating. We are talking about scientific evidence, statistically significant, on how eating a non-meat, non-dairy diet will not only stop your disease progression, but in many cases such as heart disease (even hereditary forms) diabetes and cancer, REVERSES THE DISEASE AND DAMAGE! Totally incredible!! While it does include detailed support, it is in everyday lingo and an easy watch. You will not be sorry.
Since I have been on my own, I have been “the fat girl.” Always overweight for my height. Never losing weight–always gaining. Diabetes is in my family history, but according to this research (a hugely comprehensive study), I could avoid the disease. I can reverse some of my health issues such as my fatty liver. There is a woman on the film with diabetes who after 20 weeks of non-meat, non-dairy eating, lost 45 pounds and reduced her need for medication for diabetes and reduced her sugar to between 60-80 with no medication!
They explain how this way of eating will not only help your cholesterol numbers, but reverse the damage to the heart arteries caused by heart disease. There was actually a long term study on a group of people who have eaten this way for nearly 20 years now. Hugely successful in giving them back their life. An active life!!
Take a look at it. Let me know what you think about it. I had already been backing away from meat in my home, but after this documentary, once the meat in our freezer is gone (which won’t be long), we will be a meat & dairy free home. We will eat fish and seafood, but not meat and dairy. I feel excited and ready to see the changes. As a matter of fact, I think I am going to schedule an appointment with my doctor and request a full blood panel, so I can see the changes over the course of time.
