Endothelium & food

Postby 1eye » Tue May 13, 2014 9:24 am

If you have, or have access to, the streaming movie & TV service with a name starting with an n and ending with an x, there is a film there which says some interesting things about food and endothelial health. What they say about chronic diseases, autoimmune diseases, heart failure and cancer is interesting too. This film is called Forks over Knives. Their blurb says:
"According to the research of two food scientists, the popularity of processed foods has led to epidemic rates of obesity, diabetes and other diseases."
In this film diet is used to cure type 2 diabetes and cancer. In another film I watched, called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, two people are cured of a rarer autoimmune skin disease, and obesity, and another woman is cured of type 2 diabetes and obesity. This film can also be considered an ad for juicers, but the diets are otherwise normal, with the exception they follow the same guidelines as "Forks over Knives". It is a whole food plant based diet.

Coincidentally there is a book out which is an expose of the "food" industry. It probably makes part of its money from its many mentions of brand and corporate names, but it exposes a lot of stuff you may not have known. I learned very many facts from this book: "Salt, Sugar, Fat". It shows why the diets recommended in those two films are so difficult to achieve.

Thanks for the recommendations, 1eye. Those are great, inspiring films. And we're partial to the x company that features them.

You're right --it's a process, and it works. It took quite some time for Jeff to transition from his daily food groups (Diet Dr. Pepper, sausage, mayo, cheeseburgers and rolls) to the way he eats today. It sure didn't happen overnight. And it didn't happen without some anger and withdrawal issues. He was not happy about the "Endothelial Health Program"....until he started feeling better. http://www.ccsvi.org/index.php/helping- ... ial-health

Seven years ago, we began by finding tasty replacements for his favs....hummus or sliced avocado instead of mayo, iced green tea and stevia instead of Dr. Pepper, veggie sausage and fish instead of a steak or burger, a handful of walnuts and dried blueberries instead of a cookie, and giant romaine lettuce leaves instead of a roll. And I made our house "safe." Lots of fruits and vegetables and delicious whole food options to choose from. Eventually we got rid of gluten, sugar and dairy (after a couple years)

Diets are impossible to stick to. Livestyle changes, when made with humor and patience, can last forever. And your taste buds really do change! Fatty and processed foods taste gross now. And we know an occasional ice cream cone or treat will not kill us :) It is savored, but we don't take it home.
keep on keeping on!!!
