After reading through all of the great comments left by our entrants, we’ve decided on three winners. It was really tough to decide as there were so many inspiring comments from people all with similar aspirations.
Angela said…”I just FEEL better when I eat a “real food” diet. I’m relatively young (34) and I have no health problems. I just want to put good food in my body. I also want to show my support for better food choices by “voting” with my dollar. I think the food industry will have to take note of farmers markets, farms and CSA boxes if we all spend our money wisely and not financially support companies that are harming us.”
Elizabeth R.said…”I just started reading the book that this movie is based on (The China Study) because I have been looking for ways for my dad to make some dietary changes to keep his cancer at bay. This is his second form of cancer (he’s almost done with treatment!). Our our family has multiple autoimmune diseases and multiple types of cancer. If my generation (and my father’s) can start making changes to our diets to prevent these issues, I would love to know. If making small changes (less meat or no meat) can change my family’s health long-term, then I’d like them all to try.”
Elizabeth M. said…”I would love to have the dvd if there is one still available! I haven’t seen it but have heard great things! I am 25 years old with loads of health problems that started at a very young age. Chronic asthma, allergies of all sorts, migraines that started at age 11, weight battles, etc. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m just sick. Sick of being sick. Sick of what’s being done to our race. Sick of what’s being done to our animals and our planet.
So, the past 2 weeks I’ve kicked out all meat, dairy and eggs and have been eating a plant based diet. I feel AMAZING- for more reasons than one. I have more energy. My asthma has not been nearly as bad. Not one migraine. I could keep going. This is just the beginning?? I wish I had done more research a long time ago! I thought for sure I’d feel terrible. However, it’s been just the opposite.
My husband is not completely on board but is open to the idea of adopting a plant based diet. I’m sure that after seeing this DVD it will help my husband on his journey to making a more informed decision about his lifestyle and continue to give me inspiration to stay on this path that I’ve chosen for myself.”
Also two random winners were chosen. Winners have been notified by email, so please check!

Thanks to everyone who entered and best of luck with your plant-based diet aspirations.
Forks over Knives traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn as their independent research and discoveries lead them to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented – and in many cases reversed – by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet.
