  • 1. Food Changes = Body Changes The foods we eat provide the necessary nutrients to the body. These nutrients enable the cells in the body to function, and are essential for growth and good health. The adage, “You are what you eat,” is a perfect way to describe the relationship between food and health. A poor diet and the wrong foods can result in a variety of degenerative diseases: obesity, mainly, but also:  Lack of nutrition that affects the functioning of the digestive system.  High intake of toxins that poison the body’s immune system as well as other organs and systems.  Malfunction of the body’s elimination systems, leading to wastes accumulating in the body.  Lethargy and a general ”heaviness” that cause an unhappy emotional state.  Hormonal imbalances, leading to mental and emotional issues such as depression, behavioral disorders, etc. Consuming unhealthy foods leads to over 85% of the life-threatening diseases. Foods that contain hydrogenated oils cause heart disease and nervous system disorders. Sodium nitrate, found in most of the processed meat products, is the main cause of pancreatic and colon cancers. Saturated fats found in meat products, butter, cheese, whole milk, and junk food tend to raise the cholesterol levels and increase the risk of heart disease. Junk foods like chips, cheeseburgers, fries, candies, and soft drinks don’t have any nutritional value, and their empty calories can lead to obesity and diabetes.
  • 2. The answer to healthier eating starts with understanding food substitutions. Simply swap unhealthy foods for smarter (and healthier) food choices!  Replace saturated fat foods with unsaturated fat foods like olive oil, plant foods, and fish.  Brown sugar, white sugar, cane juice, jams, candies, and corn syrups that are sticky in nature are very dangerous for your teeth. Replace these sweeteners with honey or agave.  Caffeine is a strong addiction with many side effects, including palpitations, anxiety attacks, and high blood pressure. Caffeine also has many withdrawal effects. Energy drinks claiming to be very healthy consist of large doses of caffeine and sugar that are healthy. Avoid caffeine or herbal versions containing caffeine-related products.  Eat more raw fruits and vegetables. Choose organically grown produce for maximum nutrients and minimal toxins.  Reduce your intake of animal proteins. Ideally, your diet should consist of plant-based proteins such as those found in legumes. However, should you desire animal protein in your diet, eat grass-fed, organic meats, and have no more than 2-3 animal protein meals per week. Your body is a remarkable machine. What you leave out is as important as what you put in. The body’s self-healing properties are contingent on nutrients and its ability to expel toxins.
