For those of you who are eating a balances diet, keep it up!
But, know this:
- The fresh foods you are eating have been grown on the same cropland over and over again. These foods are likely lacking important trace minerals that have long since been depleted from the soil.
- Plus, the produce has been harvested early so they can reach the supermarket and sold to you before it spoils.
- These two situations are creating the gap between what your body needs and the nutrient availability in your diet.
- And, when you cook this fresh food, you may be widening the gap even further because sustained temperatures of 108º affect the viability of food enzymes in your fresh food.
For the rest of us who aren’t eating the way should . . .
There is a direct correlation between your health and your diet.
You either are or will be paying the price for neglecting your diet.
Hand to Mouth Disease affects everyone sooner or later.
You won’t find this particular diagnosis anywhere, but you will find the symptoms described everywhere.
They have diagnoses like: being overweight or obese, constipation, digestive disorders, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, joint disease, cancer and a whole host of complaints that are managed – not cured.
When you depend on packaged foods, you are also eating additives that:
- Maintain the “appealing look” of the food,change the flavor, so it doesn’t taste like it came from a package,
- Stop the contents from spoiling by interrupting any microbial action.
- When this preservative action continues along the digestive tract, it is likely that the friendly microbes in your intestinal tract, that are responsible for the conversion of food to nutrients, are impacted as well.
Another consideration is: food additives.
Regulators have deemed these individual chemicals Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS).
However, we never eat these chemicals individually, they are part of a meal that usually consists of several different packaged foods containing different GRAS chemicals. There is limited information concerning the impact of combining these GRAS chemicals, but the possibility exists that combining the different GRAS chemicals may be creating altogether different substances than those that have been studied.
Refined grain (like white flour and white rice), peeled tubers (potatoes and other underground growing vegetables) and meat do not contain any fiber. Besides supporting timely elimination, fiber manages sugar, cholesterol, toxin accumulation and many other functions.
The Nutritionists at Harvard University suggest a minimum of 30 grams of dietary fiber, everyday.
Breakfast cereal, a burger and fries and something quick for dinner doesn’t even come close. There are some studies that suggest the lack of fiber in the typical diet may be contributing to digestive distress, cholesterol issues, sugar issues and certain cancers.
One final thought. How many of you have experienced a fast? You know, where you can’t eat or drink anything for 8 to 12 hours. Can you remember how hungry and thirsty you were afterwards?
Your body experiences a fast everyday … you don’t think about it because you are sleeping. The thing is, your body is rebuilding, using energy from calories and the nutrients from you diet to repair your damaged and worn out tissue while you are sleeping. After this daily fast, your body needs water and more energy.
Hand to Mouth Disease is going to make you suffer before it kills you.
If that’s your objective – suffer mightily before you die – then keep doing what you are doing.
If not . . .
Start eating breakfast.
Whoever said: “Breakfast is your most important meal!” was right. The first glass of water is critical and you must eat breakfast to jump-start your body. Here is a great way feed you body after your over night fast.
Recipe for the Perfect Breakfast
Soak regular oatmeal in water over night in a covered pan.
Add applesauce to thin and sweeten the oats.
Add 1 tsp. of flax seed oil.
Sprinkle 1 to 2 tsp. of cinnamon on the oats.
Crumble 6 walnut halves on top of the oats.
If you must have a sweet flavor, use xylitol. It tastes like sugar, but it isn’t and it has been shown to help with dental cavities.
Start drinking water.
The Nutritionists at the University of Michigan have studied the value of gool ‘ol water.
The formula is: divide your body weight by 2 to determine the number of ounces of water you need to hydrate your body and flush out the wastes. Liquids do not count. If you drink caffeinated drinks, add 2 ounces of water for each ounce of beverage.
Start losing weight.
Fad diets are a waste of time. Find well- formulated weight management supplement, a like NUPRO ThinRite supplements, to help with metabolism and cravings.
Take your supplements religiously until the reflection in the mirror corresponds to the image you have in your mind.
Start eating. You should never be hungry.
Eat more vegetables (all colors, raw, steamed and cooked to crunchy) that grow above the ground and less meat (about the size of a deck of cards would be perfect.) If you can’t or won’t take a supplement.
Eat an apple or pear (every color there is) between meals. When you heard: “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away.”, it was the truth.
Start taking supplements.
Even the AMA recommends taking a multi-vitamin everyday.
Make sure it contains more than the RDI. That RDI level isn’t enough to keep you healthy – it is just enough to keep you not sick.
And, while you’re at it, make sure it dissolves in you body. Add a teaspoon of vinegar to an 8 once glass of tepid water (the temperature of formula you would feed a baby.) If it dissolves in the glass, it will dissolve in your body. If not, you are wasting your money – find a multi-vitamin that is better.
I invest about $3.50 a day in supplements to help me stay healthy.
I’m 65 years old, seldom sick, take no prescriptions, ride horses in an equestrian event called team penning and keep up with our grandchildren.
I avoid the typical land mines – smoking and drinking to excess and I enjoy life. I plan to die healthy.
