I LOVE this dvd! (My friend has the book & says it has fabulous recipes). I have watched it 3 times already. What I love about it is how it's so educational & it uses health & science to prove the benefits of a plant based diet. I think a lot of books/dvd's etc can have graphic information/images about the horrors of the animal side to it, which turns a lot of people off, because lets be honest, it's scary & upsetting...whether you eat meat or not)...but FOK doesn't have anything upsetting like that, it appeals to the intellectual side of us. It is presented in a clear & easy to understand manner. It educates us on how the Standard American Diet is the leading cause of so many deadly diseases. It busts some myths about protein & calcium too. I just can't say enough good things about this video. My friend who is a "devote" carnivore watched it & was very impressed by it & it has changed her perception of how & what she eats. I think it is our job to take responsibility of what we put into our bodies by educating ourselves about food & where it comes from. And questioning things like WHY HAS cancer/diabetes/heart disease gone up so much in the last few decades. This movie is positive & educational & SO WELL done. Because of it, I got The Engine 2 Diet & have just started that. So far loving that too.
