Haven't seen the DVD's, but they both look forking good!

Thanks for posting the links... very interesting.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions

My husband and I just finished the documentary on Netflix yesterday. Awesome information. I'm hoping this is a catalyst for a better healthier lifestyle for us. I called and recommended it to my parents and sisters! It doesn't sell you anything and it doesn't dumb down the science too much. Great video.

It was wonderful!

But they seem to avoid using the word vegetarian and vegan as much as posible, but it clear that's what their advocating.

I think to balance Forks Over Knives, Fat Head needs to be on this list also. Quite thought provoking while keeping things light-hearted.

Fat Head

(I would put a YouTube link but I'm blocked from accessing it at work)

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.

I actually saw the premiere of the movie at the Museum of Science before it hit theaters! I was excited for the movie after reading 'The China Study', so I was anticipating it for a year or so before it came out.

I made a bunch of my friends come with me, and we all had the same thoughts on the movie. First, yes, they avoid vegan and vegetarian. This is because a lot of strings come with saying the word "vegan"- not consuming any animal products including clothing, concern over animal feelings, whatever other stereotypes/opinions/other things that those words suggest. Instead, they use a "whole foods, plant-based diet" which is much more what they are saying- it is just healthier to eat plant-based foods. I think they wanted to make clear that their scope was much smaller than the word "vegan" implies.

I much preferred reading "The China Study", because I'm much more science-based. I thought the documentary was geared more towards the average consumer, and was a bit melodramatic and vague at times. But after reading "The China Study" first, I knew that what they were saying was correct, I'm just not sure I would have believed it entirely if I was seeing the movie without any other background info.

Enjoy though! I am a bit supporter of this movement and I think the health benefits are fantastic :-)
