I made this video in honour of Canada’s 2019 Food Guide. In my case, following the food guide would have prevented me from healing my digestion. I explain why I don’t feel that the food guide is a healthy way of eating for many people with health issues. In my case, I healed from Crohn’s. This is my personal opinion, not medical advice. However, I feel it is important for those of us who have had good results share their success in order to empower and encourage others, and one of the things I needed to do was ignore the advice of the food guide. I hope you enjoy this video, and please let me know your thoughts!

Food pyramid, my plate, and other government recommended diets are very similar to this one so I included them in the video.

Video About Cholesterol and Diabetes: (Yes, I repeated some of his material because I think it is great and I’m sure the original is better 🙂 ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBsnk2PtPeo

If you’d like references for anything else let me know!

Oh, and the book I mentioned is Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.

For those who are interested, I created a “Specific Carbohydrate Diet Support Group” on Facebook.
