2024 Food Revolution Summit

You can watch for free when the episode starts or catch it later in the day before the next day starts. I meant to post this yesterday so the first free episode has expired, but can still watch episode 2.


Copying portions of an email ...

"Here are the daily themes:

April 24: Episode 1: Beyond The Deception
Exposing Big Ag, Big Food, and Big Pharma — and Reclaiming Our Path to Wellness
We know more about food and health than any population in history. And yet, we’re sicker than ever. Do you know the real reasons why? In this episode, we expose the tactics employed by the processed food industry to keep us confused (and hooked on their products!), reveal the dairy industry's hidden agenda, uncover the hazardous effects of pesticides on farmworkers and consumers, and show how the pharmaceutical industry is making billions of dollars selling medications to an increasingly sick population. And we’ll look behind the curtain and bring you hope — showing how much better things can be and that the power truly is in your hands to reclaim your health and to be part of the solution!

April 25: Episode 2: The Brain Episode
How Diet and Lifestyle Can Help You Think Clearer, Feel Better, & Prevent Alzheimer’s
In recent years, rates of brain fog, memory loss, mental health struggles, and dementia have skyrocketed. Are we destined for a future where our most precious faculties are compromised? What have brain experts discovered that could help you to beat the odds? In this episode, we investigate the role of diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors in the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, explore the impact of poor diet on mental clarity and focus, and shed light on the explosion in rates of depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other mental health challenges. You’ll learn essential foods, supplements, and dietary patterns that promote brain health and slash the danger of Alzheimer’s — and remedies for brain fog, memory loss, and mental health challenges.

April 26: Episode 3: Healthy Gut, Healthy Life
How to Nurture a Thriving Microbiome
Only recently have experts discovered the enormous connection between gut health and virtually every other aspect of human wellness. In this episode, we share the breakthrough new research behind the microbiome revolution and unveil the complex relationship between what we eat and common digestive issues such as bloating, gas, intestinal discomfort, leaky gut, chronic inflammation, and other related conditions. We’ll delve into the world of the microbiome and its influence on digestion, immunity, mental health, autoimmune disease, and chronic illness — and discuss the potential pitfalls of modern diets, excessive hygiene, probiotic pills, and antibiotic overuse. We’ll share practical tips and actionable steps for improving gut health and how you can nurture your microbiome using all-natural and no-cost solutions.

April 27: Episode 4: Beauty and Vitality
How to Nurture Healthy Skin, Hair, Nails, and Radiance from the Inside Out
The global beauty industry is big business… to the tune of $532 billion. But some of the chemicals used in beauty products can cause cancer and other health problems. Fortunately, there are natural ways to look good that also help you feel good and live long and well. In this episode, we explore the truth about the beauty industry and investigate the pros and cons of common products and supplements that claim anti-aging and beauty-enhancing properties. You’ll learn about the diet and lifestyle choices that can support healthy skin, hair, teeth, and overall beauty, while expanding vitality, too! Together, we’ll go beyond myths and marketing so we can nourish radiance with nutrition and holistic approaches.

April 28: Episode 5: Heartbeat of Life
How Diet and Lifestyle Can End the World’s #1 Killer
Heart disease takes more lives than any other cause of death, and while tens of millions rely on heart medications to keep their symptoms at bay, these drugs often come with serious side effects. The good news is that all-natural food and lifestyle habits have been proven to slash the risk of heart disease dramatically. And the number one place to start is with the food on your plate. This episode offers evidence-based dietary recommendations for preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease, including the role of antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and other nutrients in promoting cardiovascular health. We’ll unravel the culprits behind heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels and clear the confusion surrounding fats, cholesterol, sugar, salt, and processed foods once and for all.

April 29: Episode 6: Diabesity Unmasked
The Truth About Weight Loss, Diabetes, and Food Freedom
What’s the real reason we see such a direct connection between obesity and type 2 diabetes? Why is it so hard to lose weight (and so easy to gain it)? In this episode, we explore the real causes of obesity and type 2 diabetes and the real reasons that traditional diets almost always fail. We’ll dive into the newest semaglutide drugs being used for weight loss and diabetes management and whether or not they’re safe or worth the cost. You’ll learn what the most recent studies say about what actually works for effective and sustained weight control so you can enjoy more balanced blood sugar and your unique “right-sized body.”

April 30: Episode 7: The Science of Nutrition
Exploring Comprehensive Studies, Hot Controversies, and the Critical Nutrients You Need
Should you go keto, raw, Paleo, vegan, or follow a blood-type diet? In a world where conflicting nutrition advice runs rampant, how do you know what’s fact and what’s fiction? In this episode, we go beyond fads and bestselling books to discover what the science says about the most controversial topics in food and health. We’ll reveal the truth behind hot-button topics like soy, lectins, and phytates. You’ll learn how to end the confusion behind fatty acids and get the truth about rancidity in fish oil. We’ll uncover the misconceptions about protein requirements: how much do you really need, whether there is such a thing as too much and whether plant protein or animal protein is best. Plus, you’ll get a comprehensive rundown of the specific vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals you need to stay healthy, now and in the future.

May 1: Episode 8: The Future of Life on Earth
How to Be Part of the Solution with the Food on Your Plate
Humanity is on a collision course with systemic environmental collapse. If we keep going on our current trajectory, we're going to run out of water, topsoil, and food for the generations to come. The good news is that it’s not too late to make the changes we so urgently need. So, how can you take a stand and play a role in helping to turn the tide? In this episode, we explore the consequences of our current food production systems — and powerful ways that you can make a massive impact for good. You’ll be inspired by how you can contribute to sustainability, biodiversity, and soil health — and the power of the movements for natural, organic, fair trade, local, plant-based food to heal our lives and our world. It’s time for some grounded hope and real solutions that can make a world of difference."

to show some benefits. I started in late 2019 because there was a flyer for a new program called healthy hearts at my cardiologist's office. Covid helped in a way because most were staying at home, not gathering or going out.
My interest was to reduce meds and keep up with my grown children, a side benefit was a slow weight loss and wearing clothes that have not fit for years. I do not follow a WFPB diet 100% of the time, closer to 80%, give or take depending on the week But I've reduced meds, lost weight and saw a significant drop in my cholesterol, not sure where it is now because I've been straying too much lately. It takes time but you get used to different things.

Thanks and glad you are watching, use what you can if it makes sense to you.
