No Way Could I Ever Eat Like That!

No Way Could I Ever Eat Like That!

Guest Blogger Contribution.
More than not, as anyone discovers my eating habits, their response is something like, "Oh, I could never eat like that." I tell them that it is far easier than they think and that their taste will change, but that never seems to convince anyone. Indeed, a Low-Fat Whole Foods Plant Based diet...

Prevent-Reverse Disease With a Plant-Based Doctor

Large population studies confirm a direct correlation between the rates of chronic illness and the percent of animal products consumed in the diet of that population. As the percentage of animal and processed foods rise, so does illness - cancer, heart disease, autoimmune, and diabetes, just to name a few.

Jeff Novick Compares Fruit Juice To Cola

Jeff Novick Compares Fruit Juice To Cola

After making the transition to a plant-based diet, it's only natural to want to rush out and buy an expensive juicer to make our own juice. However, before you start searching on Amazon for the best kind, watch this six minute video clip from Jeff Novick's "Fast Food - Shopping School" dvd.

A whole fruit contains fiber, is low in calorie-density, and high in satiety, whereas fruit juice has had its fiber and many nutrients removed, is calorie-dense, and is low in satiety. Jeff refers to juice as "liquid calories" that can quickly add unwanted pounds and elevate blood sugar levels as well as triglycerides.
