Forks Over Knives
Forks Over Knives is one of my favorite movies. This movie goes into depth on why eating a plant-based diet is so important. Heart disease, cancer, and stroke are the country's three leading causes of death, even though billions of dollars are spent each year to battle these very conditions. This movie goes on to explain why millions of people are suffering from degenerative diseases, and are taking more and more pharmaceuticals every day, but are unable to get better. The statistics that this movie reveals are unreal. Could it be there's a single solution to all of these problems, like eating a plant-based diet? Doctors reveal the truth, consumers speak about their experiences with illness, and patients talk about how diet has reversed their disease states. This is hands down one of the best nutrition documentaries I have ever viewed. Learn how practitioners say you can literally reverse disease by just eating.

That Sugar Film
That Sugar Film, won my heart when the beginning of the movie starts to describe a battle between two researchers. 80% of Products on shelves have sugar in them and these sugars are hidden by the use of the chemical names. Sugar is one of the most addictive substances on this earth and some say it is 3 times more addictive than cocaine itself. Fructose and sugar may have a role to play in how our bodies respond to weight gain and the storage of fat. This film says that any type of sugar no matter what it is can affect your health and how you generally feel. When I first kicked sugar, I will say I had an immense amount of clearness in my way of thinking and feeling. I suggest this movie be watched by any person that feels they must have sugar in order to go on through the day.

Animals...food? What is going here? We often ask ourselves is our food safe to eat? Frankensteer is a Passionate Eye film that explores the controversies of how America mass produces our food, particularly meats. Livestock is now being drugged up with artificial hormones to produce larger quantities for markets. This movie explores ow our animals are treated during slaughter, what given to them before mass production, what they feed our animals versus what our animals are naturally meant to eat, and how other countries dispute our ways here in America. Most awful is how these same hormones are transferred into us as humans, which are causing health problems and disease.

When I watched this movie I was surprised. I was surprised that there were doctors willing to speak the truth about the disease in relation to food. A woman goes on to share her story of how changing her diet changed her life, but also helped her family misfortunes in disease as well. This movie reveals hidden ingredients contributing to our poor health outcomes along with diseases and disorders are affecting millions of people worldwide. I recommend this film be purchased for the amount it is sold for, it is virtually inexpensive for the information we learn, this way we can focus on eliminating the real foods contributing to poor health.

This movie by far opened my eyes to the wheat industry. There are so many diseases and conditions brought on by eating specific grains and wheat-based products. We eat an overabundance of things, instead of eating them in moderation. Watching this movie really made me think about how my health has changed since I stopped eating wheat and now I understand why. Farmers go into great detail on how their livestock is effected by feeding their animals the glyphosate feed. It makes perfect sense. This is a gotta see nutrition movie!
