Listen to your body, respect your body, love your body, feed your body.
In Defense of Food shows us how, despite the daunting dietary landscape Americans confront in the modern supermarket, we can escape the Western diet and, by doing so, most of the chronic diseases that diet causes. We can relearn which foods are healthy, develop simple ways to moderate our appetites, and return eating to its proper context -- out of the car and back to the table. Michael Pollan's bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.
The more I educate myself about eating a Raw and Live food Diet, the more I realize why so many people are overweight, sick, agitated and and finding disease taking over their lives. It is simple to fix, we need to reset our ideas about what nourishment is to our bodies. I personally think that if Humans keep eating processed, chemically enhanced, hormone fed, dead junk food diets. As a race we will not be eating for our health, but eat ourselves right out of existence!
I have been reading so much lately, and learning about how our bodies process food and carry nutrients into our system. It is not so surprising that our bodies natural ability to heal itself is so taxed that we find our self tired, stressed, irritated, and sick. Our bodies compensate for a while, but then become overwhelmed. This is when we notice that something isn't right.
We find ourselves asking,"What is wrong with me, I feel awful". Oh, to be able to gain back health and vitality once again. Is it too out of reach for us? Absolutely not, we just need to be reeducated about what we are supposed to be putting into our digestive tracks. Our body simply needs pure healthy fuel to maintain balance and health in your whole physical being. For me this discovery is a road leading me back to a healthy beautiful being- full of vitality, happiness and satisfaction.
