During this whole process, I have learned volumes about myself. I have gone back and read through what I was thinking in the beginning two months ago. It’s amazing how fast and how strong the physiological reaction that one’s body undergoes when the right things are going in. It really does go to show how our bodies are designed to eat a certain way. Healthy nutrition is right for everyone. I have yet to hear an argument in the medical community against good nutrition. I will not hold my breath either as I believe there never will be one.
The other thing I have learned is the amount of frustration I have for waiting to do this, waiting for eat the way I always have. Waiting for IP to be the head start I needed to fully understand the positive effects of healthy eating. What was it I was waiting for? I told myself, with the amount of knowledge I had, that I was afraid to fail. I felt like my body would not respond the way it has, that I would never fully get back to where I needed to be. I kick myself, almost literally, on that simple fact. The only advice I can give is to not wait. There will never be a good time, a convenient time, to get healthy. Waiting causes damage to yourself, your relationships, and your pocket book. I know it did with me. It added stress I didn’t need, that I could control. Never again….
I found a picture of fast food that was purchased and left out at room temperature for two years. No spoilage, no mold, no rotten odors coming from this food. It was 4 burgers and 4 fries. The cheese didn’t even spoil. Bugs would not touch the stuff. It is a great illustration about how this type of food is bad for you. There is nothing nutritional about it. If there were, it would spoil, like fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans. Those are actual FOOD, not food-like products. If microbes don’t want it and bugs leave it alone, doesn’t that say something about the type of food being sold to us? Doesn’t it make us question the fact that major food companies are killing us? The motivation is money, not health. Good nutrition makes a lot of sense but not a lot of dollars. Something needs to be done. I am not sure what or how, but I know my clarity on this issue is at its peak. I hope more people hop on the awareness bandwagon.
