Is there a link to see "Knives over Forks" ? I didn't see anything but special viewings.

I am with you on giving up the processed foods filled with refined flour, sugar and unhealthy ingredients we can't even pronounce. I always read the labels and if there are more than three lines of ingredients, I put it back where I found it. I watched all three movies that you talked about - very informative. I eat a plant based diet as well and buy most of my foods from whole foods market, local farmers market and from friends that grow their own food. I would be interested in a recipe of your bread or muffins. If you need any help with the plant based diet please send me an e-mail. I heard of a good book called Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I plan on picking up the book next week. Have a nice weekend and remember to take it one step at a time.

I went to the Forks Over Knives website and watched the trailer. Just that makes me glad I have been a vegetarian for the past 19 years!

Baby steps is the way to go!

Forks Over Knives is awesome and is quite very under-recognized. I highly recommend it too. Congratulations on your progress. Keep it up. Baby steps is best.

So glad to find this team. I've been Sparking since July 2010, but after losing 63#'s and then gaining 20#'s back, I had to take a serious look at my lifestyle and my addictions--especially to SUGAR! I started watching documentaries on Netflix and I'm very motivated to change my dietary habits. I'm thinking of doing this in baby steps.

1. Give up white sugar, white flour, iodized salt, white rice, white pasta, and chemicals especially glutamate . [Commit to reading labels.]

2. To replace all these with healthy alternatives. We've ground our wheat for over 23 years and I make all our bread, muffins, pancakes, etc. **but** I've always ruined the efforts with refined sugar.

3. To move towards a plant-based diet--rich in vegetables, and move away from meat and dairy.

Okay, these are my baby steps. I'm looking SO forward to getting healthier and dropping this weight.

Oh, here are the documentaries I've watched for those interested:

Hungry for Change
Forks Over Knives
Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
