Since I became vegetarian (don't worry, this isn't a soapbox blog haha), I've really started to do research and comb through healthy living documentaries, and become more aware of how food can actually heal our bodies.
For those of you (including myself) who have pretty much been on a "diet" since your teens, you have probably also heard of how people become obese; something is wrong in your life, whether its concscious and/or subconscious. It also doesn't help that all of the processed foods that are available for our consumption just make us fatter. And as a species, we no longer know how to feed our bodies what they really need. We are set up for failure even when we're born.
Luckily, there are scientists and researchers out there who don't do what they do for the money--they actually are ethical and care about long-term effects that food, pollutants and pharmaceuticals have on one's health.
I'm posting a link to a documentary I stumbled upon called, "Hungry for Change" which is extraordinary and can really change your life. You don't have to be on a weightloss journey to benefit from this information, in fact...EVERYONE should look at this to improve overall health.
I love what these people uncover, and believe me, after taking more then a few organic chemistry, biochemistry, naturopathic and regular nutrition courses I can tell you that it all makes complete sense. After watching this, I thought back to all of the chemical experiments that I've done with certain compounds, acids, bases, etc...I realized that almost every chemical I've worked with is found in processed or frozen boxed foods that you buy at the grocery store! And I KNOW what those chemicals do and where they come from...NOT GOOD!
Let me know what you think or if any of you want to start a discussion; I'd love to hear your thoughts! You can also watch this on Netflix! www.hungryforchange.tv/
