It is time to stop fooling around and get healthy. I want to get off my diabetes medicine ASAP and I will do it through a healthy food plan. ( now you know I wanted to say diet. We have got to get away from that word)
We are what we eat so we need to pay attention to just exactly what that is and how your body reacts. The very least you should be doing is eating fresh and whole foods. Cut out the preservatives in pre-packaged food. Keep away from the 3 whites: sugar, flour, and pasta. Our food has the means to prevent and heal disease. Our food choices can either kill us (an ever-increasing number of studies say that they are) or pull us out of the disease process, heal us and put us back on track for lifelong health. Food should be our medicine of choice, not drugs. More than half our entire population has to take at least one drug daily (usually more than one). 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.
"FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods." To learn more about Forks Over Knives go to:
I personally am trying follow a High Raw Lifestyle.
Just remember YOU CAN DO IT! We are all in it together! Don't use your fork and spoon to dig your grave one mouthful at a time but use it to put the proper foods/nutrients in your body. It is your choice!
Just remember this, 1/4 of what we eat keeps us alive and 3/4 of what we eat keeps our doctor alive. It is time for us to make better choices. It is a lifestyle choice. Do you choose to live or choose to slowly die by our current eating habits, processed foods, convenience foods, etc? We need to be proactive and take responsibility.

"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins." Bob Moawad
