Lance's Journal: 'Eating You Alive' Documentary, May 11, 2018

Dr. Amanda McKinney is a Doane University professor and physician who has spent much of her career helping people eat their way to good health.

She was honored recently to be featured in a documentary that explores the dysfunctional relationship many Americans have with food.

Quite simply, watching this powerful documentary will forever change the way you feel about food & eating.

Half of all adults in America struggle with chronic health conditions such as cancer and heart disease and despite countless dollars spent on medical research and new drugs, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson had a life-limiting plaque build up in the largest artery of his leg, "We talk about living longer and figuring out ways that we can extend our lives, but we don't talk about ways of extending the quality of our life if we do that."

And that is precisely what this film is all about...eating your way to a happier and healthier life.

Dr. Amanda McKinney is an Odell, Nebraska native who develops and teaches lifestyle medicine courses for Doane University, "People are in control. I mean so many people feel like, 'Oh my gosh, I have diabetes, I have to live with it,' but it's not true and the reality is the body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself if you just let it."

Seeing 'Eating You Alive' will help you help you take control of your bite at a time.

The DVD will be available on the 'Eating You Alive' website by the end of this May.
