I Thrive - Rising from the depths of Diabetes and Obesity Series

Is anyone else watching? The first episode is available now. It's a free series, but the episodes are only available for 24 hrs. I imagine the series will be for sale later down the road.

So far the doctors seem quite varied to me; Dr. Fung and Dr. Ornish, to name two. Though part one mostly talks about how diabetes has become more prevalent and even pandemic.

Thank you for posting this. I signed up and just watched the first episode. I am 71 years old, with both heart disease and diabetes, along with obesity, or should I say, brought on by obesity. This first episode crushed me. It really made me feel that there was no hope for me. I assume they are going to go on and tell what to do about it, and I hope I don't die before they show it. I hate to sound so melodramatic, but they really painted a bleak picture.

Having said that, I must add that I think I already know what I should be doing about it, but staying the course is hard.

Thanks for the heads up! I had two emails inviting me but both were buried in my junk mail. I signed up and watched the first episode. I like the guy doing the documentary. I’m looking forward to future episodes. I hope to learn a few things, hopefully, some additional tools to use.

I haven't had a chance to watch episode 2 yet, but I'm concerned if this is going the way of the documentary What The Health. There were a lot of vegan advocates in epi. 1.

I got the email for episode 2, and then got another email saying they are having technical difficulties. I'm wondering if they are going to be able to offer the whole 9 episodes.

I like the fact that it seems they are going to head toward diet and exercise and away from meds, but I agree....what diet? I can pretty much assure I am not going to go vegan.

I am keeping an open mind at this point and plan on continuing to watch the series because I do want to improve my diabetes. In the second episode it was plain that they are gearing toward a plant based diet, although at this point, I don't see where Dr Fung plays a part in this. I have never heard him promote plant based. In the short portions featuring him he has not mentioned it but discussed other factors. I will take what I learn from this and what I have learned from other sources and hope to put together a plan that will work for me in controlling my diabetes and lowering my weight.

In this episode, they did promote buying the series. It is from $97 just for a download, to $199 for a set of DVDs. I don't see myself spending that kind of money at this point.

Thank you Carol for the info. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue to watch, if they are pushing vegan. I just don't agree with vegan being the healthiest lifestyle choice.

I’m hoping they point out that there are different ways to get healthy. I don’t believe Dr. Fung recommend a vegan diet and he is part of this.

All I know is I’m a human and we were made to eat meat. But I will say that a lot of what is called meat these days is so unhealthy I wouldn’t touch it much less eat it.

I never say never, but I highly doubt if I will ever stop eating meat. I have never been able to do Keto, Low Carb High Fat, do not like bacon, and love vegetables. I know there are different opinions around the forum about the different ways of healthy eating. But because of my concerns about my diabetes I will hear them out, and possibly adopt some of their recommendations.

Iíd love to hear what Dr Fung thinks about this. I have a feeling he isnít happy or wonít be when he sees it. It appears that he was interviewed and they picked bits and pieces that make it sound like he supports what the documentary is about (vegan!). This documentary bashes fasting and keto.

Before the end the 2nd episode, I realized they interviewed all these doctors and then just took parts of the interviews to use, leaving out anything that doesn’t follow with their agenda. Very deceptive and disappointing.
