Don Schrader on Losing the Fat
Why am I passionately devoted to health?
I saw my mother and my dad both suffer severe illness for decades—largely because of junk food and not enough exercise, sunshine and good sleep. I took my mother to a nutrition specialist in Houston in 1975. He asked her, “Why have you done this to your body?” From that day on—37 years ago, I made up my mind to be healthy. I do not want to suffer the hell she and my dad endured. Life is hard enough when we are healthy. No other material possession can give us more misery or more pleasure than our body.
I am strongly sexually attracted to certain lean, fit, healthy men, so I eat and exercise to be lean, fit and healthy myself.
No one gets fat, or will stay fat, eating only whole raw plant foods—greens, fruit, seeds and nuts. Any fat person who changes to eating only whole raw plant foods and exercising every day will lose the fat! No need for our waists and weight to balloon as the years roll by.
Every morning in my room I exercise vigorously one and a half hours. I have ridden in no car for 11 years.
Preventing disease is always far better and cheaper than treating disease. Most U.S. hospital beds would be empty and drug companies’ sales would plunge if we all got serious about living healthy.

I eat 4 to 6 tablespoons a day in my blended green smoothies. Flaxseed is the highest plant source for the necessary Omega 3 fatty acid most people lack. Flaxseed helps cancer, depression, kidneys, energy, mood, intestinal good germs, brain, immune system, prostate, mental illness, aging, stomach ulcers, wound healing, allergies, asthma, sex, lungs, high cholesterol, infection, PMS, anemia, liver, skin, diabetes, blood vessels, digestion, constipation, eyesight, MS, arthritis, hair, heart, pain, inflammation, learning disabilities, losing fat, preventing strokes ...
As a youth I was sadly addicted to eating crap. With the help of many people I woke up and changed! We can change!
