I saw an excellent video this week. If you haven't seen it, you may want to just log onto it. It is free online until March 31st. It is titled, "Hungry for Change".

The story line is pretty basic....we want change in our eating habits and life but we do not know how. The commentators, all respectable authors and doctors, explain just how what we eat affects our bodies.

It doesn't make a difference what WOE plan you are on, what you eat affects you. The success stories are motivating yet filled with all kinds of valuable information about substances we put in our bodies sometimes without realizing the impact.

I wish I could better explain what the directors are trying to convey but am at a loss for words...the message is powerful and thought provoking.

If you are interested, take a look at:

This is the BEST thing I've seen in TWO YEARS! I have just ordered the DVD, will be using w/ my Tues night class, my family and my friends. If you are simply tired...of being overweight, you MUST watch this video.

We all have choices. And the food manufacturers have choices too. And they are not making good choices for YOU! That's for sure!!!

Let's clean up our act 'food wise' and get healthy, strong, and make a difference in this world - now - while we are still here living!!!

Much Love.
Live, Love, Laugh ...make each day memorable and enjoy the journey.

Do you feel like you just keep circling around the same mountain? I know I have felt that way!!! There is far too much science available to go back and forth about calories in vs calories out...or whether low fat is where it's at...or if low carb is the right mantra, etc!!!

The bottom line - FOOD MANUFACTURES are manufacturing food! It's a far cry from real, whole, naturally grown and harvested FOOD!

Which are you eating?

Quality does matter. And more than 80% of our 'processed' and 'manufactured' foods have some version of MSG in them. (I didn't know this.) And it's hidden under multiple different names. WOW! AND, scientifically proven to make you fat! It also makes you happy - for at least the first few minutes after ingesting.

But then you want more. Because you liked that feeling. Your body is working against you at this point!!! Arm yourself with GREAT INFO - and watch this film!!!! If you care anything about the quality of the food you eat - and how to eat 'healthy'.

Intentional food addictions. Created by the manufacturers. They don't care if you are fat! They just care if you buy their product. So they'll put whatever is necessary in it... to get you hooked.

We're killing ourselves! Literally!!!

Glad you ladies enjoyed the film....I found it very insightful and while appalled a bit about what food manufacturers do to our food, I wasn't surprised as it always boils down to the MONEY. I, too, have ordered this to share with my family and friends.

Heather, I knew that this would be right up your alley. And Paula, I felt that this was something you might want to share with your Tuesday night class...I also knew that this would fire you up as well. That is why I asked you to specifically view it. I am hoping that others will take the time to watch it.

It definitely will impact what you put in your mouth. I will be reading labels much more carefully looking for MSG and aspartame. While I may not know all the MSG aliases I will know not to ingest MSG if it is on the label.

Thank you for watching.

Thank you for the post. It was nice to see a film that clearly states waht I have been trying to do for the past 3 yrs. I was also fed up with all the fad diets and got caught up in the 'REAL FOOD' movement. I saw my mood and my kids mood change quickly. I am a happy person now. I am not sure about the juiceing... but maybe I will give it a try.

Bottomline, know what is going into your body folks!

I wish I had more folks to share this film with, but I don't think most of my friends are ready for it, if you know what I mean?

Soulnoid and others, please do try juicing - vegetables and greens. I tried it first many years ago when I felt so tired all the time I could hardly walk for no apparent reason than borderline anemia, and I got hooked for life. It gives me immediate boost of energy more powerful than any amount of coffee can give you. I do not do it daily as sometimes I do not have time to juice, but I don't think I would be able to function if I stopped juicing for a long period of time. I get allergies when I try to use vitamins, so for me it is my bioavailable multivitamin pill. You get used to the taste very quickly. The only disadvantage is cleaning the juicer. Juicing is one habit I strongly advise you to adapt. This is by far the best thing I could do to improve my health through diet.

Thank you so much for sharing such an amazing video!!!Wow what an eye opener!I knew that they used msg, but not in the amount of foods that I now know. The manufacturers do not care about our health at all. They are there to get you hooked on their product and sell more to just make money. I could watch this over and over to just be more motivated to become a more healthy person. I am going to buy a juicer thats for sure. Thanks again!
If you have the right mindset then nothing can stop you from reaching your goals! Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!

Yes, thank you for posting. Just finished watching ... so inspirational and informational. I have gotten bits and pieces of the points they are working to get across here and there, over time, but only after a variety of dietary changes ... so glad they captured so many important topics regarding health, food and well being in 90 minutes. Everyone on FS should have a peek at the video, it will alter the approach we are taking and hopefully inspire folks. The juicing aspect is interesting ... maybe need to integrate it slowly into my daily eating plan as well. The video approaches food and life holistically ... very nicely done. Even though I watched it, still going to purchase it as well as the recipe book. Thank you again!

I watched the movie too, then shared it with family and friends on Facebook. Then I ordered a juicer (I'm so gullible, I'd probably buy land in the everglades!) on QVC. Broke my bank almost, but if I don't like it it'll be easy to return and I have a whole month to try it out. I also ordered a yogurt maker from Chef.com to try to make my own yogurt. I can't consistently find the Greek style yogurt I want that is low-carb and full fat, so I want to make my own. We eat a lot of wild game and we love fresh vegetables and green vegetables anyway, but perhaps with the juicer I won't need or be tempted to buy as many supplements.

You did great, DLynne, with the juicer. Remember green veggies more than anything else in your juice. I was telling Gwen that my favourite juice book is Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices by Norman Wardhaugh Walker. It has all kinds of "formulas" and remedy information for a lot of ailments. I also used to make my sister's yogurt every day for school. It's so yummy and without all the commercial sugar, you're going to love it.

I found a juicer (which I haven't received yet) online at Walmart for $65. It's a Hamilton Beach Pro and it had great reviews from Consumer Reports as the #2 juicer (just under the number one which cost $300.) Since being a newbie...I decided cheaper is better and I can always upgrade someday down the road if I feel it necessary!

Got my husband and my daughter to watch the video online - they are both on board with making some additions to our daily habits!

Thanks for the book recommendation, Heather.. I will be looking for that today too! I feel 'healthier' just thinking about it! Can't wait to actually get started!!! LOL!

Heather, I ordered a juicer and picked up the book that you suggested. I am planning to show the video to my daughter while she is here in hopes that she will rethink what she eats. I am so thrilled that so many are watching the video and realizing that food manufacturers are not our friends but have a completely different agenda...profits at all costs. Wish there was a way to get this out to more people. It needs to be shown in schools where kids are just starting to learn about nutrition and there isn't a health club in this country that shouldn't be showing it to its clients. I am thrilled that Paula will be showing this to her Tuesday night group. Knowledge empowers us!

While I thought the movie was good and called out the garbage food for what it is I think the juicing diet is a bit overrated.

I do like how they called out canola oil as being a bad oil along with corn and soybean oils. And then they promoted coconut and avocado oils... but that was about 2 minutes of the film. And they promoted quality meats... in passing.

A good film to get the uninitiated informed about the lack of quality in our food but the diet they replace it with is questionable. However if they can get anyone off of the SAD diet then this is a worthwhile film.

I just had to jump back on my favorite topic of juices. There is now plenty information on the internet on juicing. I am providing one link to the site that also provide nutrition information and calorie count on vegetable juices. While I am sure there are many other now, this was one of the few available in the old days when I started calorie counting in addition to juicing. http://www.juicingbook.com/vegetables

My advice to the beginners: never juice fruit, only vegetables. Fruit have too much sugar. Some people juice apples. I believe they still have too much sugar. Fruit are better eaten whole. Carrots should be used sparingly for the same reason. Green leafy vegetables should make the bulk of your juice. Lettuce, celery and cucumbers make an excellent base, to which you can add stronger tasting greens. No, it does not taste like lemonade, but you will learn to love the taste.

Add some fat to your juice - cream, good quality healthy oil, or take your fish oil with it. You need oil to absorb non water soluble vitamins.

Juice should not replace food. I eat vegetables and salads. I eat high protein, high fat diet. Juice is not a replacement for food, it is a replacement for junk drinks and multivitamin chemical pills.

Green leaf juice is suitable even for induction phase of Atkins if you limit the quantities, and I would rather replace some of the carbs with juice and vegetables, than with bread and sugar.

I owned cheap juicers, I splurged on more expensive ones, that supposedly are better and do not ruin enzymes in the food. My advice - buy the one you can afford and put it to work. They all break down eventually, and none are perfect.

Some people ask the question, why not just eat all these vegetable whole. May be you can, I just cannot eat that much food and that much fiber. In addition with a lot of vegetables, you need to break down the cell walls, either by cooking, or by juicing.

And no I do not think, you can cure all ailments or become a better person just because you add a glass of juice to your diet. But you can improve your diet relatively easy.
