As you could imagine we talk all the time about our observations of people's shopping, eating and health habits.
We decide that really and truly, people know what they should and should not be eating but they don't think that it applies to their health. they get lucky and live until 90 or get unlucky and die young.
The unfortunate thing is that it takes too long to see the affects of our bad behavior and by the time we do start to feel bad and get sick we think that it is natural aging or maybe a genetic defect.
One of my husband's best comments to date on this subject came when we were discussing cars...which we do a lot....he made the observation that the vast majority of people take much better care of their cars than they do their own body
You would never see a person pour Mountain Dew into the gas tan of even the most inexpensive car and expect it to start right up and drive on down the road.
But that is what the vast majority of people do with their food. They dump soda, coffee, processed foods that contain chemicals, additives, dyes and foods and I use that term loosely and are shocked that they have cancer, heart issues, problems concentrating, sleeping, skin and digestive issues. They wonder why their kids have behavioral problems and can't focus and concentrate.
Your putting Mountain Dew in your gas tank - come on! You sure want that car to run well make it to work everyday, carry you back and forth to the cape into the mountains skiing.
Same hold true for your body. You will have to ride in it for the next 60-90 years. Yeah a longer ride is great but wouldn't you like it to be smooth and problem free? No flat tires, leaky radiators or transmission that's slipping - yeah the motor head is rubbing off, I know what these things are. 8-).
This is not rocket science but what you eat matters. You have the ability to choose what diseases you get, how you feel, how you function and look.
You have a choice. Dont' give that away.
You deserve to be Healthy!
