Yes, really. If you are ready to change your life for the better the
first thing you need to do is educate yourself. Don't you want to know
what you are in for before you start a major life change? There are gobs
of self-help books out there and to be honest, I'm just not the type
that can cozy up to a good book and read for hours. I wish I was. We got

I do have to comment that while "Vegucated" does have many great points, it makes me upset that she seems to be encouraging products like Oreos as "Vegan food". Well, yes, they are vegan because they're not even "food" at all. That's my only real problem with the film.
Also- While I recommend "America the Beautiful", I do NOT reccomend the sequel, "America the Beautiful 2". It completely disregards a healthy diet and ends with the idea of "just be happpy", as if your health is not important and won't make you happy.
I hope you all can change your lives for the better after educating yourself and making a decision to do things right.
My favorite video (also available on Netflix) is "The Secret." It will change your outlook on life and it works with any person, of any religion, or lack there of.
There you have it. Now go upgrade your life!
