The Food Revolution  http://learntruehealth.com/food-revolution/ Ocean Robbins' Food Revolution Network Food is not just a commodity - it's also a community. Ocean Robbins expounds in this episode on why becoming informed about your food is an act of liberation and empowerment for yourself and your world. Today's guest is going to blow you away. In fact, his family has probably touched your life in some way. If you've eaten one of the delicious 31 flavors of ice creams that Baskin Robbins serves, then his grandfather has affected your life. Ocean Robbins is my guest today, and I am so inspired he dedicated his life to helping people to live a healthy life through sustained agriculture and a whole foods diet. He is also on a mission to save the planet. Baskin Robbins Ice Cream Empire Ocean Robbins' grandfather founded an ice cream company called Baskin Robbins and Ocean Robbins' dad John, grew up with an ice cream-shaped swimming pool in the backyard. He was groomed from early childhood to one day join in and run the company. John Robbins invented the Jamoca Almond Fudge flavor and a lot of other flavors. But he walked away from running the business and followed his path. One of the primary emphasis for that was that his uncle, Burt Baskin, who was Ocean Robbins' grandfather's brother-in-law and business partner, was dying of heart attack. He died at the age of 54. "My dad's uncle Burt was one of the most successful entrepreneurs in American history. He seemed to have everything, but he didn't have his health," shared Robbins. "That was an eye-opener for my Dad." Moving To Canada After a few years, Ocean Robbins' dad moved to Canada with his mom and built a one-room log cabin.  They practiced yoga and meditation for several hours a day and named their kid Ocean. "I grew up monetarily poor, but I grew up with healthy food and a lot of energy. I ran my first marathon when I was ten years old," Robbins recalls. Diet For A New America When Ocean Robbins was 12 years old, his dad started working on a book called 'Diet for a New America' which came out in 1987. It became a runaway bestseller. It's about how our food choices affect our health and happiness. Ocean Robbins says the media had a blast that time. They called his dad 'The Rebel Without The Cone,' because of this would-be ice cream heir, became an advocate for healthy food. Ocean Robbins' grandfather was initially devastated that he didn't take over the company and ended up selling the business. He was bitter when he retired and blamed my dad for it. Turning A New Leaf In 1990, Robbins' grandfather had severe health problems --- diabetes, high blood pressure and weight issues. His doctors told him he didn't have long to live unless he read this book and followed its advice. It turns out that the book doctors wanted Robbins' grandfather to read was the one written by Robbins' father. So he read the book and got incredible results. He then lived for another 18 years. Robbins' grandfather cut down on meat consumption, stopped eating sugar and ice cream. He ate a lot more vegetables and whole foods. Drive To Help Others "We've seen in our family, what can happen when we follow the standard American diet. And we have also seen what can occur when we make a change," said Robbins. "So that drives me to want to help people." At the age of 16, Robbins ended up co-founding an organization called YES! (Youth for Environmental Sanity) that he directed for the next 20 years. "Everywhere I went, I saw how people eat and the impact it had on their health. More people were suffering from chronic disease," said Robbins. Eventually, Robbins decided to work with his dad and help take this food revolution message to the modern era. He wanted to use the online technology, so they launched The Food Revolution Network in 2012. Robbins says they reached more than a million people through their live online event. Here they saw that all over the world, people are hungry for change. They are fed up wi
