Inspiring Others – Really think about what you eat

We’ve been continuing our education on food and how our diet affects us and to be honest, it’s scary, really scary what I’ve been shoveling down my throat for the past 30 years. You believe, quite rightly too, that the food that is on the shelves at the supermarket are suitable for eating, you would never stop to think that in many of the processed foods out there, so many of them are filled with chemicals and additives that are harmful to our bodies. I remember working 9-5, finishing work and getting into the car to drive home, being stuck in […]

Inspiring People – Here is a man who genuinely makes a difference, Dr Kirt Tyson

As the previous post mentioned, we first saw Kirt Tyson when he appeared on a documentary, called Simply Raw, to take part in proving that nutrition can arrest and reverse diabetes.  The documentary was absolutely mind blowing in the results they had in just a few days, with 6 volunteers with both type 2 and type 1 diabetes, just by changing their diet to purely raw food.

Healthy Eating paying off already

We’ve only been on our new clean vegan style diet for almost 2 weeks and already a friend told me this morning that I’d lost weight.  Now my actual plan isn’t to lose any weight as I feel fine how I am, but I did want to “tighten” everything up and become leaner. Last week we watched ‘Fat sick and nearly dead‘ which was a great documentary based on one man’s journey from being fat sick and nearly dead, through to getting his life back on track and losing all his weight and the results this brings him, he also […]
