There have been many sources that I have been studying over the last few months. I will try to list them here as I try to remember what I watched or read and what I gained of it.
One of the main themes I have learned is that everyone who makes a movie or writes a book has some very specific points they want you to hear and believe. It is up to you as the reader to dissect the truth from the propaganda. I always figure the more times I see and hear a recurring theme makes it more believable.
Fat to Skinny, Fast and Easy! by Doug Varrieur ISBN 978-1-4027-7133-0
This was the book I was reading when I saw the light on how I can change. Mostly it’s the parts talking about how carbs and sugars metabolize in the body and how the fat cells are switched from storage to supply. – I consider this a must read if you want to lose weight.
Various Movies – In no particular order, I will be watching these again to take notes, Perhaps I will eventually have a page for each item with more detail of what I found important to note.

The Gerson Miracle another movie talking about the Gerson Therapy with many interviews both pro and con.
Dying to Have Known, One more movie looking at the Gerson Method with many good interviews both pro and con.
