Ok, so I was so depressed at myself. I totaly just wrecked 15 days of super foods, feeling great and exercising! Friday night is poker night, I planned to just drink water but I didn't get enough juice in me so I was hungry and that started the bad weekend. I ate chese and salami and crackers,,,felt like crap! Then Sat we went to Port St Lucy for a Birthday party and I had sweets, MD hamburger and fries and a Pina Colada! It didn't end there...then leaving and on our way home we stop to get gas and right next door was Burger King,,,(Yep I got a Whopper and Fries) I thought it was going to taste sooooo good but it didn't and Sunday I felt sick all day! That is why I did not blog I was a bad girl. I got more down on myself because I gave into temptation. My lack of will power was gone. I was defeated by food. OMG, this can't be so. I watched another documentary Food Matters and you know what? IT DOES! I am back to my juicing and healthier choices and so what I had a bad weekend it's ok as long as I get back up and start again. So, todays blog is going to be about the documentary Food Matters.

About the Film"Let thy Food be thy Medicine and thy Medicine be thy Food" - Hippocrates. That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in the controversial new documentary film Food Matters from Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch.
With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what's wrong with our malnourished bodies, it's no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide 'sickness industry' and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for overcoming illness naturally.
In what promises to be the most contentious idea put forward, the filmmakers have interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who claim that not only are we harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to help with chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
The focus of the film is in helping us rethink the belief systems fed to us by our modern medical and health care establishments. The interviewees point out that not every problem requires costly, major medical attention and reveal many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive than conventional medical treatments.
