The role our nutrition plays on our health is gigantic. Most people do not realize how much better they can feel without the use of medications or simply from a dietary change. Take joint pain for example. The majority of joint pain is not from old bones or bad joints. The majority of joint pain is simply from a malnourished diet. The Standard American Diet, abbreviated SAD, is just that - sad. We are simply too toxic and suffer from systemic inflammation.
*Note: that most heart attacks are not necessarily from clogged arteries, but rather from inflammation. This is why a proper diet combined with specific supplements, like Omega 3 fatty acids, can literally save your life.
Many people know I wrote a book about this very information, but I am surprised by the number of unhealthy and overweight people that say, I know that stuff. What stuff? Are you psychic and know what is in my book? And if you know that "stuff", why are you choosing to be unhealthy? This is YOUR health.
Somewhere along the way people get these ideas in the brain that things are a certain way, but in reality, they are not that way. Like eggs. Somehow eggs became this unhealthy food, that if you eat it, you better not eat the yolk as this will increase your cholesterol and is bad for you. Nothing is farther from the truth. Eggs are AWESOME for you. ( including the yolk) But an entire industry sells egg substitute this and egg white only that. I guess like the healthier diet soda. ( And that is a big roll of my eyes )
Also along the way, we are taught in school to say no to drugs, but the ones with a prescription are the good ones. Really? Prescription drugs kill more people than illegal drugs. I read a really good quote, "The body does not produce health when you contaminate it with filth."
There is a major disconnect when we assume that we can eat at Subway because somehow that is healthy for us? I don't care how many athletes they have in their commercials, Subway sticks to high heaven. And..you cannot eat whatever because you exercised today.
How possibly can your body heal, mend, and function when you don't provide it with the fuel it needs? The answer is, it can't. Try mixing water and gas to save on your car's fuel and see how it performs. Consuming 1500 calories of McDonald's is NOT the same as 1500 calories of lean protein and healthy fats. It is NOT calories in and out, no matter how many My Fitness Pal apps you have on your phone. My friends are all counting calories, but having diet coke and processed foods. This is will not cut it if your goal is optimal health. Many people that exercise, cut calories. You need MORE calories to support your muscles from the increased activity, not less. They wonder why they lose pounds, ( not body fat ), and struggle after a month or so to keep losing the weight. If you want to lose pounds, ask any high school wrestling coach. If you want to have optimal health and a side effect is fat loss, eat healthy!
