Why is cheese SO hard to give up and what can you do about it? This is a common problem when you're transitioning to a vegan or plant-based diet. Today I talk to Dr. Nana Kwaku Opare, President and Medical Director of Opare Institute to get some answers. Below are links to the resources we discussed.
#1. Understand just how BAD dairy and cheese is for you. Cheese is a concentrated processed form of milk. Milk does not to a body good. It does a body in! It is high fat, high cholesterol and full of hormones, pesticides and more. Milk is bad, cheese is worse! Read the book Whitewash by Joseph Keon. Click here to get a copy.
#2. Do an Optimum Fast juice fast to break your addictions and reset your taste buds. http://opare.net/juice-fast
