Eat Real Food
Are you ready to improve your health? Let’s be real. You’re not actually walking around saying, “I need to improve my health.” But, you’re probably saying things like, “I don’t feel good. I’m tired. I’m out of shape.” How often have you said to yourself “I need to lose a few pounds or I’m Fat.”?
Why do you feel this way? It’s because you’re SAD (Standard American Diet). You’ve heard about it, right? But do you really know what it is?
SAD a diet (ie: what you eat) full of red meat, dairy foods, processed foods, cold cuts, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, preservatives, and lots of white starchy carbs which actually dull your taste buds. So, when you eat a carrot or a strawberry, they don’t taste so good.
SAD is void in vegetables, fruit, beans, whole grains, nuts, seeds, poultry and fish.
SAD causes us to gain weight, feel crappy and to be exposed to diseases that we shouldn’t be exposed to until we were much older.
Do you remember the 1990s’ low fat craze? At the time, we thought fat made us fat so reducing fat correlated to a healthy diet. And if you’re reducing fat you have to increase carbs. The food guidelines actually suggested whole grains, fruits and vegetables but we all heard MORE CARBS.
And the food companies went crazy!
They removed the fat and added sugar, salt, fillers, and preservatives.
What do those preservatives, fillers, and extra sugar do? They absolutely wreak havoc on your body! It thinks they are a foreign substance, which they are, attacks them and causes inflammation inside your body.
It is common knowledge that inflammation causes a number of diseases.
