This is going to be fun. Kevin Gianni has once again put together an impressive line-up of raw food experts for a free teleseminar series.

Living and Raw Food Experts

New York’s Menu: Calories Count

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

A single word comes to mind as I sit to write on this topic: “Vindication!”

When NY first set in motion the legislative process of requiring calorie counts on menus, especially those of fast food establishments, many scoffed, declaring it would make no difference.

Here on the blog, I and others, expressed that its efficacy in changing the diets of others was beside the point. Rather, it’s an issue of our right to information and the attendant decision-making empowerment it engenders.

Well, the good news is, it’s done both! People are aghast at the actual numbers. And who can blame them?! This is why we wanted to know. ;)

Article: MSNBC reports on the shocking numbers.

CNN: Raw Food and Angela Stokes

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

As a nice counterbalance to the 20/20 story on orthorexia, CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, M.D., has now taken a look at the raw food diet as well.

Angela Stoke‘s story of successful weight loss and energy gain through the raw food lifestyle is encouraging and should help paint a more positive picture of the movement.

Last year Sanjay Gupta did a big piece on life extension and calorie restriction in which he displayed similar equanimity. Further, he willingly submitted to public testing and evaluation of his own diet. Bravo! :)
