Food is so many things. . .
My goal is to help people to understand the social psychology for living whole plant-based. We all realize that . . .
- food fuels us
- comforts us
- celebrates with us
- represents our culture and traditions
- connects us with our friends, family, co-workers and community
Food has the power is make us either very sick or very healthy. Our different types of connections can either sabotage or support us in our desire to eat as healthy as possible.
- Say “NO” to heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer – all food- borne illnesses – that are possible to prevent, reverse and survive! So say “YES” to adopting healthier eating habits.
- Evidence Based Nutritional Science (valid and reliable): The Physicians Committee (pcrm.org), with Dr. Neal Barnard, MD as its’ founder, advocates the optimal health benefits of a whole plant-based diet (with no added oil) for people of all ages, including pregnant moms, children and the elderly. Even triathletes, those in mixed martial arts and other endurance sports are finding this way of eating to be performance-enhancing!
- Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr MD
- Dr. John McDougall, MD
- Dr. Michael Greger, MD
- T. Colin Campbell, PhD
- Dr. Thomas Campbell, MD
and others are all in agreement that you can prevent or reverse chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes or survive even some forms of cancer just by what you put at the end of your fork!
The tricky part is. . .
- When you start to make healthier changes –
- feeling stronger
- more energetic
- being happier
- looking leaner, fitter
others take notice. Some of this attention is positive and encouraging while some, not so much.
Challenge: to keep your health commitments without losing any of your connections.
