Cows are suppose to eat grass yet most cows are now fed genetically modified corn. Dogs are suppose to eat raw meat yet most are fed dry kibble with low amounts of protein and high amounts of grain. Why is that? It’s because it’s more convenient and costs less to feed these animals a low quality, processed food.
Humans are suppose to eat foods packed with nutrients to maintain health yet today’s foods are nothing more than processed crap! Foods today don’t only lack nutrients but they contain harmful chemicals that poison our bodies. Here’s the worst part….it’s legal! The sad and scary part is that most people don’t even know what’s in the food they eat. It’s cheap and convenient and that’s all that matters.
Yes I know, this crap food tastes so good. There’s a reason for this. Your taste buds do not know the taste of real food. This food is laced with poisonous flavor enhancers to maximize the sensation in your mouth and to determine the most desirable taste. To me, this promotes addiction.
For example, when sugar is ingested it creates a happy sense of euphoria. The same feeling a drug addict gets when using. I myself struggle with sugar addiction. The smallest taste of it sends me into pig-out mode and leaves me wallowing in shame. I have to treat this addiction just like an alcoholic in treatment. No sugar at all! Hey, I know it sounds harsh but you don’t offer an alcoholic a small taste of alcohol on occasion.
Eliminating sugar from my diet was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Almost everything in the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) has sugar in it. Read the label. Anything ending in “ose” is probably a form of sugar.
Once I eliminated sugar funny things started to happen. On day 3 I had a pounding headache that wouldn’t go away. Here I was having withdrawals from sugar! Yes, it is a drug! When I would indulge in fruit it actually tasted sweeter to me. Fruit of course has sugar but it’s not processed so I treat myself on occasion. I also achieved a great amount of energy! No more relying on sugar for that quick high sugar crash. I was burning fat for energy!
Eliminating sugar from my diet was my first step towards a healthy lifestyle. Can you make the same drastic change? Your health depends on it.
