October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, didn’t you hear?

October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, didn’t you hear?.

There’s been lots of talk about breast cancer awareness and lots of pink going around.  Even the latest headlines warning us not to drink too much wine.  Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t mince words in the latest blog post and he tells it like it is.

If you don’t want to read the full post here’s a great summary….

It is obvious this pink product promotion kick is all about promoting mammograms so radiologists can make more money. They need plenty of awareness to counter all the recent research from large studies showing that mammograms aren’t too effective.1-3 It is clear that this was just another mammogram campaign and a fundraising effort designed to save money for the pharmaceutical companies so they don’t have to pay for the drug research to test expensive new chemotherapeutic agents.

If preventing human suffering and saving women’s lives were the overriding purpose then promoting how to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer would be front and center as the main objective. Women should be getting notified of the scientific evidence that has accumulated in recent years that can enable women to avoid breast cancer. There are powerful protective steps women need to be aware of, such as:

  • Exercise
  • Stay slim
  • Eat lots of green vegetables, onions, and mushrooms daily.
  • Do not eat mass factory farmed dairy products, especially those given rBGH
  • Stay away from fast foods and insulin promoting refined foods such as white flour and sweets.
  • Do not eat mass factory farmed meats given antibiotics and growth promoting hormones.

Dr. Fuhrman has a wonderful arsenal of books and support material to help you change your eating habits through sounds knowledge and excellent plans.  When I saw this article on his blog I couldn’t help but share it with you.

Have a read and let me know what you think ok?

The last weight loss book you’ll ever need to buy!

I remember how sad I was when I felt depressed and overweight.  I was a little over 200lbs, depressed and felt hopeless.  I knew I needed to lose weight and regain control over my eating so I decided to look for something quick like fasting to get a kick-start.  I’m glad I stumbled upon Dr. Joel Fuhrman and his fasting book.  I soon realized that he had a new book coming out called “Eat to Live:The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss” and I pre-ordered it.  It was December 8, 2002.

That decision changed my life.  Lots of people try lots of different diets–so did I.  I was tired of the yo-yo and tired of feeling embarrassed about facing people.  I love social time but back then I didn’t want to leave my house.

Well, this book changed everything.  I learned how to eat and why it was so important.  It is not just another weight loss book.  It teaches you how to truly eat healthy…not the low-fat, pasta and chicken healthy…really healthy!

How else was it different? No weighing, measuring, counting or fretting about hunger.  I could eat as much as I wanted as long as I was eating the health-promoting foods.  My world of eating opened up and became so much broader.  It was fantastic.

I am  a new woman because of this book.  So, if you want to a mini-course in nutrition I highly recommend “Eat to Live” by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.  He also has “Eat for Health” that came out later on and helps people transition into healthier eating if the first book is more than they can handle all at once.  I suggest you get both or if you want, sign them out of the library and read them both.

Amazon’s description is as follows:

Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s revolutionary diet is not about willpower, it is about knowledge. Eat to Live offers a healthy, effective, and scientifically proven Six-Week Plan for shedding a radical amount of weight quickly. The key to the program’s success is simple: health = nutrients: calories When the ratio of nutrients to calories in the food you eat is high, fat melts away. The more nutrient-dense food you consume, the more you will be satisfied with fewer calories and the less you will crave fat and high-calorie foods. Eat to Live will help you live longer, reduce your need for medications, and improve your overall health dramatically. It is a book that will change the way you want to eat. Most of all, though, Eat to Live will enable you to lose more weight than you ever thought possible.

My eating guidelines follow this nutrient rich way of eating and we can go as hard-core as you want or ease into things too.

Knowledge is power…get some and prepare to be amazed at the facts.


Take care of yourself,

Isa
