    I was a vegetarian for 5 years and a supporter of those who also choose to be. However, I think the benefits of humanely raised grassfed and finished beef or game should not be discounted. In fact, giving up all processed foods and grains is the first key to the benefits of diets such as the one in this movie. The next key is adding in the three types of plants – sulfer, greens and colors to the tune of 3 cups per meal. My husband and I follow the Wahl’s protocol of eating to cure MS. She suggests no processed foods, legumes, seed oils and grains. 9 cups of veggies a day is our norm with a sweet potato here and there plus some quaility salmon or grassfed beef. Nuts, avacodo, coconut oil and organic cultured butter are our fats of choice (despite saturated they are proven to actually lower cholesterol). I can’t see how this type of diet would be less beneficial than pure veganism. If veganism keeps you away from processed industrial meat, stick with it! But please don’t turn to grains to fill the void. Good health to everyone 🙂
