add the fact that we dont take the same care as we had previously in terms of the nutrition in the food. what we are more concerned with seems to be
availability and aesthetics. on top of that simply drinking carbonated drinks while eating blocks a good portion of the nutrition you wouldve gotten
from that food. those drinks arent bad themselves per se, but does interfere with the chemical processes in your gut. i used to eat like the rest of
america and can attest that there are many odd effects that came out of moving to one (HEALTHY) meal a day augmented with nutritional supplements and
just as the op said the fat just melted offuntill i was at a healthy weight.
thats when the interesting thing happens though, my mind no longer seems "fogged" as i had gotten accustomed to over the years. my energy increased,
my "bad knees" that i had blamed on heredity corrected themselves and i have had more "real" energy (as opposed to the energy drink energy) ive
noticed i heal quicker when i get injured and havnt been sick in a year and a half. this is coming from someone with chronic brochitis, and has
changed my life in its entirety.
trust me, there is something to it. i can only give anecdotal evidence, but i assure you that if you just try this be smart about it you will have
more than enough of your own anecdotal evidence to go by. i dont post much, but this is close to my heart. my sister is on month two of the same
nutritionalchanges and already has regained control of her blood pressure, depression and general fatigue. i live by this rule, and yes, still have
more than one meal a day on occasion, just have stopped drinking soda with those meals and stay away from "the cheap stuff" any chance i get.
truth is that it seems like paying the extra pocket change it costs for organics is balanced by the fact that my medical costs have almost been phased
out (still have to go to the dentist and get my checkup of course) but is that any surprise? if you think its econimical to buy cheap food day after
day and to "shovel it in" just ask yourself if you feel healthy. ask yourself how you got fat, how you developed diabetes.. ask yourself if
convenience and availability is worth adapting your body to unhealthy feeding practices.
we all know humans adapt amazingly well and quickly, but what have we been adapting to lately?
