Although many people think they are well informed on nutrition, they are not. I can't tell you the amount of people walking around with really high cholesterol numbers, for instance, that will say to me 99% of the time, "It must be genetic, I eat a really healthy diet". Then we start breaking down what they eat in a day...believe me, it is NOT so healthy at all. But, in their defense, what they are eating the so called "experts" have led them to believe is a healthy diet!
I have found the prescription for maximum health that is simple, easy to follow and will give you more benefits than any drug or surgery will, WITHOUT the side effects. This prescription isn't just a menu plan, it doesn't require counting calories, and it doesn't serve anyone's financial interests. Most importantly, the evidence behind this is overwhelming. It's about changing the way you eat and live and the extraordinary health that will follow.
So, what's the prescription? In short, it is about the health benefits from eating a plant-based diet. We need to get rid of the foods that are causing all kinds of sicknesses and diseases--animal products including all types of meat, dairy, and eggs, and all the processed artificial "food" that we have come to love, and start eating all kinds of foods from the plant kingdom. The research that has been done proving how harmful these foods, (animal products and processed foods) are to our health is staggering. One of the most exciting "discoveries" in all this research is we can PREVENT the diseases that we thought were genetic--we thought we were destined to follow our family's health problems--this has been PROVEN not to be so! Now, we may have the genes that are responsible for the disease, but something has to "trigger" those genes to activate them.
Of course, drug companies want to manufacture pills to treat all the health issues--and we all know there is a pill out there for whatever "issue" you may have. However, the REAL solution is in NUTRITION. It has been proven over and over again, with the proper nutrition, diseases can be PREVENTED.
Based on all the scientific evidence on nutrition, so many people would not have to needlessly suffer from so much sickness and disease. Just take a look around.....we are fatter and sicker than we have ever been in HISTORY! Obviously, what we are doing just is NOT working. Obesity and diabetes are at epidemic proportions...our children are not being diagnosed with what used to be called 'adult onset diabetes', not to mention all the heart disease and cancer that surrounds us......we have to put an end to this.
Eating a whole food plant based diet is the absolute best way of eating for optimal health. It's about eating an abundance of vegetables, fruits, beans, and whole grains. When you give your body what it needs, it heals itself, you FEEL amazing, you look amazing, and your energy level is running on top speed! Eating a plant based diet gives your body so much of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are LACKING in the Standard American Diet, (SAD). We eat trying to nourish ourselves, but because when we are eating the SAD, the proper nutrition just isn't there....our cells are not getting the micronutrients they require, therefore, our cells are not able to regenerate "healthy" cells....they regenerate cells that are "unhealthy" and then our problems begin.
So, if you are ready to take charge of your health, jump on the vegetable and fruit wagon with me....we need to STOP nourishing disease and START nourishing our health!!
