I came across another great post today by Emily Boller on the diseaseproof blog.

I liked the following bit especially well:
"For years we've been led to believe that disease is just a part of the aging process; lulled to sleep by scribble marks on a prescription pad.
Perhaps some doctors and pharmaceutical companies have been misleading us.
Perhaps in the past we didnâ€™t know any better, but now that we know the truth we will choose to no longer live in ignorance.
Enough is enough. Itâ€™s time to get smart.
The time has come for all of us to wake-up and jump on board the food revolution; and Iâ€™m not talking about the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution that adds butter and cheese to cream sauces, or grass fed beef to homemade noodles, or campaigns relentlessly for the removal of chocolate flavored milk from school lunches.
Iâ€™m talking about the kind of food revolution that eradicates unnecessary and expensive diseases from our bodies; the kind that prevents and reverses diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, and kills cancer . . . .a nutritarian revolution.
The change of one person is a transformation.
The change of many is a revolution."
Through the McDougall Program (and yes, a touch of Eat to Live), exercise, and discipline I have transformed my body and life - and that has certainly has been revolutionary to my friends, family and doctors
