Three Movies You Should Watch and Why

Friday, March 30, 2012

If you know me you probably know that I am obsessed with health and nutrition. I know that not every person out there cares as much as I do about nutrition, but I believe that everyone should know what they are eating and why! These three documentaries are eye opening as to how our bodies turn food into fuel and how you can cure so many of the common ailments with the way that you eat!

First Up,

Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead is a documentary about Australian Joe Cross, Joe is overweight and struggling with a rare auto immune disease. He decides to try something different to treat his disease and embarks on a 60 day juice fast. His results are nothing short of remarkable. If you like to see the amazing transformations on The Biggest Loser you will love this movie! Obviously we are a bit biased toward this movie since we already love juicing but it is definitely a must watch for anyone who eats :)

Second on the must see list,
If you have anyone in your family who has had cancer or heart disease you should watch Forks Over Knives. The facts and research in this movie is astounding. Forks Over Knives is based on The China Study and I really want to read that book soon! Forks Over Knives promotes a whole foods plant based diet, while we are not vegan this movie has really resolved us to cut down on the animal products that are in our diet.

I will be honest, Food Inc. is really hard to watch. The cruelty shown to animals in factory farms is revolting. This documentary is extremely eye opening to how political the food industry is. If you don't currently strive to eat mainly organic foods this movie will open your eyes as to why local and organic food is important.

I hope that you take the time to watch these movies! Let me know what you think of them when you do!
