    That was a very interesting and informative interview. It all makes common sense however to cut out grains, rice, pasta and potato altogether is drastic and to my head almost equals the big D word. It will be interesting to see if the South Africian government does one day change the standards for food and whether the rest of the world follows.

      Hi Leonie,
      Perhaps just try to reduce or substitute those foods where you can and where you feel you can handle without creating the diet mentality.
      Kind regards

    REVOLUTIONARY. Thank you for getting this out there. Thank God every day for the internet that can combat the corporate killing machine in our food. I'll do what I can here in the States to propagate the ideas.
