NMM: Forks Over Knives!

Happy Monday!

Today I’m bringing you another documentary that I think is definitely notable.  It’s called Forks Over Knives and is all about our current diet and what studies have shown.  It tells the story of various people who eat what’s called a “whole-food plant-based diet”.  Some of these people were diagnosed with cancer years ago and told that they had no chance.  Modern medicine wasn’t working, so they needed to get everything in order.  However, these people didn’t settle for that.  They began working with a doctor who found that if you just eat this particular way, it reverses disease and prevents it from coming back (or even starting).

Say whaaaaat?

Sound crazy, but it’s true.  A strictly whole-food plant-based diet (WF PB?) actually let’s your body heal itself!  Now, I know many of you are thinking: plant based?  I want my meat!  Watch this documentary before you resist it.  Watching it doesn’t mean you have to change your diet, but at least you’ll be informed.  Turns out, too much meat can actually help cause cancer.  Our bodies are made to handle only a small amount of meat, and we’ve definitely surpassed that mark.

Now, like I said, just watch the documentary before you knock it.  You don’t have to make changes, I still eat meat and junk I shouldn’t, but at least you’ll be aware of it.  Maybe you’ll at least add one more healthy meal into your week, but even the small stuff counts.  It’s worth it.
