Lobster and I watched another documentary last night. Okay, I watched the documentary while Lobster fell asleep. Anyhoo, this one is called Food Matters. The film is described as:
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what's wrong with our malnourished bodies, it's no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide 'sickness industry' and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally.
"With access to better information people invariablymake better choices for their health..."
In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several leading experts in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
This film really strengthened my resolve to feed myself and my family organic, whole, raw produce and ONLY grass-fed beef and poultry. I have believed in the concept of nutrition as the ultimate healer of the body for some time, but very rarely do I ever hear of medical professionals agreeing with that sentiment. This film explains why most medical doctors dismiss this idea...and why they're simply WRONG.
Go watch this film. It can be streamed instantly on Netflix. I loved it and if you have any interest in health and natural healing, you will love it too.
As for the update, Lobster and I completed our modified juicing experiment and we have come to conclude that we absolutely LOVE our juicer! We still have a big juice every morning for breakfast and we are going to continue to have a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables as the main parts of our meals. Lobster lost a whopping 6 pounds in the 15 days we did our modified diet and we both feel fantastic (I did not lose weight and I'm not surprised; my body does not lose weight easily). I have also decided to stay off caffeine for a while. I still have coffee, but it's decaf now and I am trying to drink a ton more water every day.
If you haven't tried juicing yet, you really should! It's tasty and oh so good for you. And watch Food Matters. It could change your life!
