Thanks so much for this video Greco. I sent it to my mother because in our private talks about my switching to an Plant Based Diet, she often asks me how I meet the bodily need for protein because she's got her own ideas about consuming Dairy products and Animal (meat) products or anything that converts into sugar in the blood stream.

My own brothers, all three of them, are diabetics. They don't get how the food choices they've practiced for years has led them toward an diabetic trajectory. And because all three siblings in the video speak about their own experience, it carries lots of weight in helping others to see how important it is when trying to understand the impact of traditional food choices vs the great benefits of consuming food from an Plant Based Food diet.

I didn't switch to an Plant Based Diet for weight loss, although weight loss was an natural consequence of ridding my diet of Dairy and Meat (animal products). At my special medical appt, last Friday, when the nurse recorded my weight, I was so surprised to learn that since March of this year, I've lost nearly 63 pounds. That's roughly an ten pound weight loss each month since early March. I switched to an Plant Based Diet so I wouldn't become Diabetic. Weight loss, as an result of this radical change in foods I consume, was never an objective.

Thanks muchly for the video. I think it will help my mom and all three of my brothers to see the benefits of not consuming Dairy or Meat (animal products), as conveyed by the three siblings featured in the video you posted, Greco.
