Fed Up Documentary Review

Fed Up Documentary

I just watched the documentary “Fed Up” and it PISSED ME OFF, which is exactly why I think it is so great!

The documentary is about why America and other modernized parts of the world are so fat! Way too fat! The statistics are unreal. 2/3’s of Americans are overweight. In 20 years if things don’t change 90-95% of Americans will be overweight. 90-95%!!! Do you know why?? One word…..SUGAR, and the food industry is solely responsible! They have been manipulating and lying just so they can make more money and they are killing people and ruining lives without any concern whatsoever.

The film shows the lives of a few different overweight children and how they are trying to lose weight, which they are unsuccessful with until they finally understand HOW TO EAT. It’s not about a diet. It’s not about exercise. It’s a way of life and a majority of people have NO IDEA how amazing it feels to live it because people are so addicted to sugar and it’s done on purpose. Why? Because the food industry execs want to keep the dollars rolling in, so they hide sugar in everything and anything just to make it more appealing, to make it taste better, to make you want more of it. I was aware that processed foods are terrible but I had no idea how much sugar they are putting in everything, including “health food”. It’s disgusting!

Basically anything that comes in a package is going to make you fat if you are not careful, but why on earth would anyone knowingly put poison into their bodies??? THEY WOULDN’T! That’s why when you look at the nutrition labels on your food, you will notice that they don’t include the daily percentage of sugar per serving. Why?? Well because if you are on a diet and you read the label on a “healthy” item and you see that the daily percentage of sugar for one serving is upwards of 200% then you probably wouldn’t buy it. FOR ONE SERVING. Think about a whole day….this is why people are fat and don’t have any clue how to fix it. They are being poisoned. It’s unfair and I’m pissed about it and I can’t understand how it’s legal!

This film is great and I highly encourage you to watch it! You will probably get pissed too, you definitely will learn something and hopefully you will share what you learn and encourage the people around you to start  educating themselves….especially those of you with children. High five to Katie Couric who is an executive producer and narrator of the film, for a job well done! 

I took this photo yesterday of the nutrition label on my kale… where is the daily percentage of sugar? 


Adopting a Healthy Vegan Diet Plan: The Fruit vs. Sugar Confusion


We hear it all the time… “Sugar is bad!” But what does that mean when it comes to adopting a vegan diet plan that is both healthy and delicious?

There is no question that refined sugar is our enemy in so many ways. Eating refined sugar makes your body into an environment that supports illness and disease, and quite simply, it makes you fat! There are countless reasons to avoid refined sugar. Read 78 of those reasons HERE. There are also many names for refined sugars you may be unfamiliar with. These are important to know so you can recognize hidden sugar listed in the ingredients on nutrition labels. Familiarize yourself with THESE.

Where confusion comes in, is when the topic of fruit arises. Fruit contains sugar. Some people claim that eating fruit will have the same adverse effects on our health as eating sugar in other forms. NOT TRUE!!! Eating whole fruits is incredibly beneficial to our health! To explain, please watch this incredibly interesting short VIDEO by Dr. Michael Gregor. He is my most trusted source of unbiased, up-to-date nutritional information. He scours all the latest research and compiles short videos and articles that bring clarity to pertinent health issues.

In conclusion, EAT FRUIT! Organic whenever possible, especially when it comes to berries. Berries may be the most beneficial fruits that exist so add them to your shakes and cereal as often as you can. The fiber in whole fruit makes eating it whole the healthiest option, but drinking fresh juice does still deliver antioxidants and other nutrients to our bodies. Whole fruit makes a super snack on it’s own, especially  shortly before a workout to give you a burst of energy that digests quickly so you aren’t working out on a full stomach. 

Now you can enjoy fruit and know you are doing your body good with every bite. Enjoy!
