What To Eat

Okay, lets talk about WHAT TO EAT...

Check out this weird statistic: One third of all vegetables consumed in the United States come from just three sources:

  1. French Fries
  2. Potato Chips
  3. Iceberg lettuce!

Dietary research focus' on a single nutrient at a time however single nutrients don't function in isolation in the body. Because the research shows that cheese promotes healthy bones in the body pizza manufacturers think they can sell more pizza by claiming that its healthy for you due to the cheese topping!

General Mills had a Total cereal with big bold print on the front stating "Blueberry Pomegranate 100% Nutrition". The general consumer thought that they were getting 100% nutrition from this cereal as well as the health benefits of blueberries and pomegranates. Yet there was absolutely no blueberries or pomegranates in the cereal at all. NONE!

I would highly recommend that you don't listen to the media regarding nutrition information. Get some good books or simply start to read labels. Ingredients are listed on the ingredient label based on the amount present in the food. Ingredients that are the most prevalent are listed first and then lesser used products are listed further down the line.

  • If the first ingredient is SUGAR, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, ETC, your eating candy.
  • If the ingredient is difficult to pronounce, it is a chemical at best and probably better outside the system rather then inside. Best to eat more whole foods and even those you must look at labels. Not every food at the health food store is okay!

I am not suggesting you completely turn your whole world upside down and run away with this. But try this: change a few things.

  • Ditch sugary cereals for breakfast and eat a whole grain one with a banana and some honey. (If you really love your Cap'n Crunch then have it as a desert).
  • Try eating more baked potatoes rather then fries.
  • Learn to fall in love with salads. You can get them in all styles, something for everyone. fruity, savory, you name it! Use romaine not iceberg lettuce. That's a small change that make a big difference.
  • Grind up veggies and hide them in your spaghetti sauce. Kids won't know and every little bit helps.
  • Stay on your program of adjustments to ensure that your nervous system is working at top speed to keep you healthy and watch your food intake.

You will love the results!
