Forks Over Knives

Many diseases, including coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity can be treated and prevented by a plant-based diet.  This is a belief that I am passionate about and have seen in my daily work as a cardiologist.

The movie Forks Over Knives, which is coming out this summer, is based on the premise of diet as a treatment for disease.  It traces the lives of two important pioneers, T. Colin Campbell PhD of Cornell University and Caldwell Esselstyn MD of The Cleveland Clinic.  Both come from animal farming backgrounds, and yet both are strong proponents of plant-based diets.

I want to go to one of those McDougall weekends/weeks. The thing that gets me every time is just the having to cook. Not craving for junk, not that I don't like the rice and beans type diet...it's the cooking/work every time.
