My thoughts on the documentary, What the Health

Avocado toastLately I’ve been getting an influx of calls and emails from worried clients who watched the Netflix documentary, What the Health.  People are concerned – and for good reason.  One client emailed, “Well now what?  Apparently, I’ve been doing everything wrong!”  Another client made an appointment for his entire family (wife and 2 daughters) wanting me to teach them all how to become vegans.

I watched the film and to be perfectly honest, it wasn’t easy for me to get through it.  I seriously wanted to turn it off after the first 5 minutes, but felt compelled to keep watching.  I went back and forth from anger to laughter.  Not because I don’t believe in the health benefits of a plant-based diet. I do!  My issue was with the fear-mongering and misinformation presented by the film-maker.

To learn more, read this excellent review of the documentary written by one of my dietitian colleagues who just so happens to be a vegan.



If you want to become a vegan, learn more about a vegetarian diet plan, or just get tips on how to eat healthier, call me.  I will teach you what you need to know without all the scare tactics.
