Continuing in our week long celebration of Jack LaLanne, here is a 3min clip where Jack does get a bit preachy about sugarholics saying they are just as worse as alcoholics...in that both are consuming a product that is destroying their health.
What I found most eye opening in this video clip which was shot nearly 50 years ago, is that towards the end, Jack recommends 10 foods to cut out of your diet for just 5 days to see how you feel. I'd say that the entire list is something most RDs and health/wellness folks in present time would reccomend eliminating or hugely cutting down on today!
Jack really was ahead of his time or the Western diet hasn't improved one bit. It's kinda scary. In fact, back then I wondered what young Jack would have said about GMOs.....(pausing for thought) um yeah, we don't need to guess, we know what he'd say.
