I am working on the post about weight training at home I promised a couple of days ago. But, I read about this video in the Runner’s World article by Amby Burfoot, and it made a tremendous impression on me.
Intuitively we know this to be true. But to actually see it in this video really drives it home. For all the emphasis we put on exercise, and it is important, it is the diet that is making the biggest difference. Another hard truth is that the standard diet in America is fundamentally unhealthy. This video, and the movie/book Forks Over Knives along with the movie/book Fast Food Nation has convinced me, that for me, a vegan diet is the way to go. I don’t advocate vegan for everyone, but for me it works.
