More on nutrition: don’t miss this documentary

We believe proper nutrition and fitness are critical for a healthy life, and that these issues are particularly relevant for people dealing with pituitary disorders.  We usually dedicate a fair amount of space to food and healthy choices and warn our readers about fad diets.  Here are a few of the articles we’ve published

I recently watched the fascinating PBS documentary from journalist Michael Polland based on his book “In defense of food”.  I think it has terrific information and much common sense advice.  Totally worth the time.

From the author:

In Defense of Food, the PBS documentary based on the book by the same name, takes viewers on a fascinating journey to answer the question: What should I eat to be healthy? Cutting through confusion and busting myths and misconceptions, the film shows how common sense and old-fashioned wisdom can help us rediscover the pleasures of eating and avoid the chronic diseases so often associated with the modern diet.Michael Pollan’s journey of discovery takes him from the plains of Tanzania, where one of the world’s last remaining tribes of hunter-gatherers still eats the way our ancestors did, to Loma Linda, California, where a group of Seventh-day Adventist vegetarians live longer than almost anyone else on earth, and eventually to Paris, where the French diet, rooted in culture and tradition, proves surprisingly healthy. Along the way he shows how a combination of faulty nutrition science and deceptive marketing practices have encouraged us to replace real food with scientifically engineered “food-like substances.” And he explains why the solution to our dietary woes is in fact remarkably simple: Eat Food, Not Too Much, Mostly Plants.
