The Vegetarian Society of Hawaii

At the top of my blog is now a link to the free online lectures maintained by the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii.  These were very important to me when I was learning and adapting to this healthy lifestyle.  They are a real treasure trove of important information.

My favorites are the lectures by Drs. McDougall, Esselstyn, Lisle, Campbell, and Shintani.  There are many other excellent lectures there too, but I regard these as essential for anybody who wants to understand or follow the lifestyle advocated here. 

There are also some commercially available DVDs that I regard as essential too, and they will be addressed later.  I remember being amazed when I first saw Jeff Novick's DVD on government labels.  I was amazed at the trickery that allowed companies to legally advertise pure fat as fat free with zero calories from fat.  I am still amazed by that, and how anybody who does not understand the loopholes in the labeling laws can choose healthy foods to eat.


  1. Thanks for posting the link to VHS. They look like they'll be great.

  2. Bob ,I Googled CHIPS program location. There are 3 in the Sacramento area. None in my area . That should tell you I am in beef country.

  3. Funny you have the CHIPS program on here. That is what lead me t Dr. M. I was part of a weight watchers group and another member brought in a magazine from CHIPS and gave it to me saying "This might be of interest to you." I decided I was going to see if I could go 1 week without meat and the rest is history. There a few here in San Diego. Thank you for all you and Farley do for us. =)

  4. Ooooo! This is a treasure trove of information! Thank you, thank you!!!!
