WEtv (Women’s Entertainment TV) features a show called The Secret Lives of Women. Every episode has a theme which highlights three or four women living parts of their lives within that theme. I saw an episode on “Extreme Diets”, which featured:
- a vegan, raw foodist
- a calorie-restriction couple
- a freegan
- a religious, christian diet-plan creator
While a part of me is slightly annoyed that any of these people are labeled “extreme”, I realize that all of these diets are quite different from the standard American diet. Some people still have a hard time comprehending vegetarianism, let alone “freeganism”. I appreciate the show bringing to light some alternative lifestyles.
Janet Kalish -Freegan
Janet Kalish leads a lifestyle which involves rifling through garbage for food. Freeganists “dumpster dive” for political reasons rather than out of necessity.
You can watch the entire show (sans commercials) on Youtube – search “secret lives of women, extreme diets”. It was interesting to be on the other end of learning about alternative diets for once!
New video tomorrow! Until then, have a lovely day!
