Eleven weeks ago, I went cold faux-turkey and started a totally vegan, no oil diet. I personally did this for health reasons because I was on a collision course with death and I am not quite ready to go there yet. The main goal of this dietary change was to get healthy, but the added benefit is that I’ve lost 80 pounds in those 11 weeks! In this time, I’ve had the opportunity to talk to dozens of people who have been interested in the diet, but have made excuses on why NOT eating a plant based diet. Believe me, I did this, too, until I had the proper motivation. Here are some of my favorite excuses and how I’ve overcome them.

However, it is a dangerous situation and you should know what to do if you find yourself or a loved one in this position.
In a case that seems like it emerged from the Middle Ages, a Wisconsin man was convicted of letting his 11-year old daughter die because he thought “God would heal her.” Dale Neumann, 47, of Wassau, Wisconsin was convicted in the March, 2008 death of his daughter to undiagnosed diabetes.

The two face up to 25 years in prison. What do you think about this? Is there something wrong with people like this or should we try for more religious tolerance? Share your viewpoint. Read more…
