Hello my name is Jughandle and I’m addicted to food.
Meat in particular
I’m in trouble because I enjoy writing this blog to my followers and I’m afraid that what I’m about to tell you might change that. A few of you might not like what I have to say and will switch me off. Please find out what I’m talking about before you do.
First I’ve got to mention that the mission statement for the Fat Farm is to shoot straight, point out and encourage anything that supports healthy living and good food. That last part is where I’m afraid I’m going to lose a few hard line carnivores.
Forks over Knives
If you, like me, are a touch over weight, maybe even obese and even those that seem to be healthy but are big meat eaters, then listen to what I’m telling you. We are in serious trouble. I haven’t checked my cholesterol in years, not because I’m an ostrich with my head in the sand, but mostly because I am among the 30,000,000 uninsured in this country. No matter what the doctor would tell me, all it would do is worry me. I can’t afford the drugs or the tests.
The movie Forks Over Knives is a HUGE Wake-up call. Please watch this movie or read the book. Please.
The movie points out that we can take charge and REVERSE the effects of diabetes, heart disease and even CANCER!
Studies show that test rats on a 20% animal protein diet tend to develop various cancers. When the same rats are put on a 5% animal protein diet, the cancers stop developing and go away. When returned to a 20% diet the tumors return.
Cha, cha, cha cha changes
The tone of Jughandle’s Fat Farm Blog is going to change to focus more on a plant-based diet. I’m not yet comfortable with giving up meat completely, and I hate the term Vegan. All I’m saying is that I’d like us to work together to save each others lives. Who among us does not know some one that suffers from diabetes, heart disease or cancer, or is just plain fat?
This never was intended as a light easy reading blog. This blog is intended to make a difference in all our lives.
I really want you all to watch the movie, Forks Over Knives. It is full of evidence to show that we need to eat a heavily plant-based diet not to save the animals (a noble cause), but to save our children and ourselves. Watch the following trailer:
If I’m wrong about this please write and tell me. Or better yet, write me and tell me how to make this happen. I’m a meat lover, I need your help – Jughandle
