194 Everyone Has A Choice To Make

Good Morning,

 

If you have been following the ideas that we’ve talked about regarding the foods that you choose, you have made some dramatic changes in your diet. I am also sure that you have noticed some dramatic changes in your health and weight. If you have not, let’s sit down and figure out what is keeping you from succeeding with the Food Coach Meal Plan.

 

You are doing a great job of learning about foods so that your food choices are made with knowledge and wisdom. Just knowing about something is great but you must be persuaded that it’s the best choice and then choose it. For some reason many people feel that they are “okay” and are exempt from their poor diet choices. However, anyone who indulges in the Westernized diet that we consume in our country will end up with a degenerative condition at some point – it is only a matter of which one. If you question that, just look around you at the people who are sick. Our population as a whole is getting sicker instead of better. People are living with more sickness and disability. Look at the number of people who cannot get around without a cane, who cannot walk up steps, who cannot pick up something from the floor. I am not interested in that at all and I feel quite sure that you aren’t either.

 

Data from The US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey tell us that in 2009–2010, 35.7% of U.S. adults were obese and 16.9% of U.S. children and adolescents were obese. Wow! The response from the medical community and representatives from groups like AARP is that the situation is mysterious. Mysterious? It’s not mysterious… it’s pretty obvious. The source of these problems is the food and people are eating their way into sickness and disaster. If you change the food you change the health outcome. Simple. It’s important to do something now to avert this inevitable outcome.

 

The best gift of our eating plan is being able to avoid this entire crisis situation. Understanding how to make good choices to get healthy and stay healthy is a privilege that I don’t take lightly. How you feel colors everything else in your life. Seemingly healthy people are not getting away with anything; the statistics are not in their favor. The likelihood of getting away with what they are eating is very, very slim. It is only a matter of time.

 

If you know someone who needs to hear this message, be kind and tell them about the power of foods.
