Stop worrying about dieting.  Just eat foods that come out of the earth, not foods that fertilize it!  Ken Carlile, Chef and Blogger

The answer to the American health crisis is the food that each of us chooses to put in our mouths each day. It's as simple as that.  T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Author Whole and The China Study

Americans love to hear good things about bad habits.  T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Author Whole and 
The China Study

“I have heard one doctor call high-protein, high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets “make-yourself-sick” diets, and I think that’s an appropriate moniker. You can also lose weight by undergoing chemotherapy or starting a heroin addiction, but I wouldn’t recommend those, either.”
T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Author WHOLE, THE CHINA STUDY

Casein is the most relevant cancer promoter ever discovered.

Excess protein takes its toll...each time we double our protein intake we increase the amount of calcium excreted by 50 percent, escalating our risk for osteoporosis and kidney stones. 
John A McDougall, MD, Author The Starch Solution
When asked "Where do I get my protein?" Answer "the same place your protein gets its protein, plants!" 
Jeff Novick, MD "Tuesdays with Jeff"

The future of meat is vegan...It's cheaper, probably more healthy, less cruelty involved, less greenhouse emissions, it's quite a phenomenal's a huge thing.
 Bill Gates, Philanthropist

Start with your next meal and make it whole food, plant based. Then, one meal at a time from there on. Don't look at what you can no longer eat. Figure out what delicious things you can, learn how to prepare them and become the change you seek. Before you know it you will look in the mirror and be that change.

Put the idea of dieting out of your head. Adopt a whole foods, plant based lifestyle and your body will thank you for it. If you eat right your body knows where it should be to be at its peak. Ken Carlile, Blogger 

Kale is Lettuce with an attitude.

Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Plants. 
Michael Pollan, Author, Journalist

Search the internet and you will find lots of articles to support your bad eating behavior. "People want to hear good news about their bad choices". 
John McDougall, M.D.. 

"When I was 88 years old, I gave up meat entirely and switched to a plant foods diet following a slight stroke. During the following months, I not only lost 50 pounds, but gained strength in my legs and picked up stamina. Now, at age 93, I’m on the same plant-based diet, and I still don’t eat any meat or dairy products. I either swim, walk, or paddle a canoe daily and I feel the best I've felt since my heart problems began.” 
Benjamin Spock, Pediatrician and Author, Dr. Spock (1903-1998)

“Some people think the “plant-based, whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million people a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.”
Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, Author Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution of a vegetarian diet." 
Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist 

At first the changes you are about to make may seem overwhelming. After all, you are about to abandon the eating habits of a lifetime...before you know it healthy foods will be not what you ought to but what you want to eat. 
Ann Esselstyn, Author

‎"If you do what I ask, your disease is history. Rather than detour around it, squish it with a balloon or brace it open with a wire bracket - either of which is just a temporary angina-relieving procedure - my program can prevent disease altogether, or stop it in its tracks. All the interventional procedures carry considerable risk of morbidity, including new heart attacks, strokes, infections, and, for some, an inevitable loss of cognition. Mine carries none. And the benefits of intervention erode with the passage of time; eventually, you have to have another angioplasty, another bypass procedure, another stent. By contrast, the benefits of my program actually grow with time. The longer you follow it, the healthier you will be." 
Caldwell Esselstyn, MD

“When about 16 Years of Age, I happen’d to meet with a Book, written by on Tryon, recommending a Vegetable Diet. I determined to go into it. My Brother being yet unmarried, did not keep House, but boarded himself and his Apprentices in another Family. My refusing to eat Flesh occasioned an Inconveniency, and I was frequently chide for my singularity.” 
Benjamin Franklin “The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

“I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives. 
Dean Ornish, MD 

One farmer says to me, "You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with;" and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.
Henry David Thoreau 

The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of "real food for real people" you'd better live real close to a real good hospital. 
Neal Barnard M.D. , President Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.
Harvey Diamond Author Eat for Life

Your choice of diet can influence your long term health prospects more than any other action you might take.
C. Everett Koop, Former Surgeon General

Remember to look forward to each meal with the possibilities and great foods available to you, not the foods you can't eat. This is a lifestyle, not a diet. Losing weight is an added benefit to a plant strong, whole food nutrition plan. 
Ken Carlile, Blogger

You're dealing with high fat, high protein, low carbohydrate, low fiber, and if that's the centerpiece of your diet, which for most American's it're going to have a high likelihood of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. 
John McDougall, M.D.
