Dumping junk food: two years and counting for me

This blog began after I had angioplasty done to open a severely blocked artery to my heart. I recent passed the two-year mark since that surgery, passing a physical with flying colors.

You are not what you eat: Is fat as bad as we thought? from Eva Voinigescu on Vimeo.

To reach this point, I have completely changed how I eat, walking away from all the high-fat, high-sodium, high-sugar foods I once loved and lived for. It’s been extremely tough, but there are rewards. One came recently when I was invited to be a guest on a TV show dealing with health, fat and eating habits.

Eva Voinigescu, the journalist who invited me on the show and I had met at a Northwestern journalism event at its Medill school of journalism (the name is longer now, but I’m a journalist, so that’s what i call it).

You can see what I, and several other guests, have to say by clicking here. One of the other guests will be guest blogging for me later this week. My interview starts just before the 23-minute mark of the show.
