I have already given up meat and this film tells me how right this decision is. But what I didn't know is that dairy products are equally unhealthy. There are massive studies that show this that I never heard of that is in the film. The other day, I thought if I added yogurt(Greek style and unsweetened) I would end up with a healthier diet. I had already been buying organic cheese from Grocery Outlet for a nice price. The next day, I could hardly move as my arthritis was in full bloom as well as muscle and joint pain. I thought it was because the yogurt was not organic. I now know it is because it was a diary product and I had eaten cheese that day as well. I still eat cheese every so often which is alright for now and does not give me the pain I had before, but when I run out of organic cheese I am no longer eating it. I purposely keep the amount of dairy foods very low. Soon, I am becoming a vegan for good.
The film does not mention organic foods. I have chosen to include them because of health reasons and because organic produce taste better. I now enjoy eating and even cooking far more in my kitchen than before as I am still eating one meal a day. I am creating soups and other simple recipes that are vegan and taste good.
When I ate the yogurt, I became hungry a short time later. When drinking smoothies and eating one vegan meal a day I was not. The film explains why we become addicted and hunger for prepared foods and how it affects the body. I can say for a certainty that it is true. I made some gluten free onion rings and was surprised how hungry I was a sort time later. I don't get hungry as a rule and that is important for me in order to stay on my food plan. I also got mad at the corporations that make prepared food knowing full well that people do not feel satisfied after eating their food products. They over eat and gain weight.
I mentioned my food plan at the senior center the other day as someone had asked if I lost weight which I have. There was a woman in her early 40's who said she could never give up the foods she loved. I looked at her, grossly overweight so much that she had to be in a wheel chair. I know that she does not love that food all that much because she is addicted, but I was hopelessly addicted too although not in a wheel chair. I had to find my own way home. Hopefully, she will too.
