Change Your Life With Us!

simple vs easy

If you need to know a lot about nutrition to be healthy and slim then how did people do it before 1838 when the first nutrient was identified?

We know more about nutrition now than ever in history and how much good is it doing us?

We can know that good nutrition is simple for one obvious reason. If it wasn't, nature wouldn't work!

In fact, you already know everything you need to know to eat right. If you could just forget all the extra stuff you'd be okay.

The way to change your diet is to make some very simple adjustments to the way you think about food. With practice, good eating decisions can be as automatic as which side of the road to drive on.

If anybody tells you it's easy, they are about to ask you for money. Don't let yourself be fooled. You already know it's not easy.

If you need help it is important to find someone you can trust. Losing the belly shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg.

The Problem with Appetizing Food

ap•pe•tiz•ing (adj.)

1.Appealling to or stimulating the appetite.
2.Tempting.

de·li·cious (adj.)

1. Highly pleasing or agreeable to the senses, especially of taste or smell.
2. Very pleasant; delightful.

Once upon a time there was a meal course designed to make the other courses more appealling. You ate it first and it was called the "appetizer". Its purpose was right there in the name - you were supposed to be hungrier after you ate it than you were before you ate it.

For food producers - be they packaged food manufacturers, fast food chains or casual dining restaurants - making ALL of their food products appetizing is just good business. Appetizing foods sell very well.

If you have a weight problem it is because you are OVERFED and UNDERNOURISHED. Food that has been engineered to be appetizing will make you overeat and the engineering process will make the food less nourishing.

There IS a difference between appetizing food and delicious food. Ask yourself this: Are you choosing to overeat or are the foods you're choosing making you overeat?

If you want to avoid the problems of appetizing foods, you should make as much of your food from scratch as possible. Click the link below to see some information about how you can add more home cooking to your diet.

When you eat out try to choose locally-owned and operated restaurants. They do not have large corporations behind them making a science out of hyper-appetizing all their products. Plus they are much more likely to make food from scratch. Don't be scared to ask how anything is made!

Here is some of what you'll find:

Every day there are news reports of new health advice, but how can you know if they're right? Doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre shows us, at high speed, the ways evidence can be distorted, from the blindingly obvious nutrition claims to the very subtle tricks of the pharmaceutical industry.

Food companies are not out to get you. The hard truth is that they don't care about you at all. You are just a source of revenue. The best way for them to separate you from your money is to create ever more appetizing food. Click here for the link to an article that explains what has happened in the food industry over the past few decades.

Salt is SO bad for you. Or is it? Would it surprise you to know that there has actually never been a definitive link between sodium intake and hypertension?  In fact, there is some indication that a low-sodium diet is more dangerous. Click here for the link to the article.

If you are like most, you do not want to see the disturbing particulars of how your food is produced. Well, big food companies have taken appalling liberties with that type of willful ignorance. Why don't you let 11-year-old Birke Baehr talk some sense to you about industrial farming. Click here to watch the video.
