SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Monday, September 27, 2010
I have been reading Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's book Prevent and Reverse Heart disease. He is really strict on what he expects of his heart patients especially when it comes to animal products and fats. I wanted to share this quote from his book as it really impacted me and made an impression. The quote says:
"If you have retained only one fact from my explaination of the science behind this program, I hope it is this: that just a little bit of forbidden food----fats, dairy products, oils, animal protiens---CAN hurt and WILL. Think of it this way: if you adopt a healthy diet overall, but allow yourself to have fats just 2 or 3 times a week, that means you are abusing and injuring yourself on 150 or so days a year."
I find when you think of the whole year instead of "cheating" just one day you really get the whole picture. What do you think???
