I am loving all the amazing webinars that I am listening to at the moment, mainly with a focus on the exciting field of epigenetics (more on that soon) along with health, nutrition and personal empowerment!
In fact I am spending so much time listening to all these online events that I have very little time for anything else at the moment! However my motto is ‘take it whilst you can get it’ and that’s exactly what I am doing whilst I have good internet access!
Oh and I am excited to share my new Sandsofchange Facebook page – please ‘Like’ and share it. Thank you!
My goal is to connect with like-minded souls on a global basis and share inspirational and transformational tools for change, both on a personal level and a global one.
There are still a couple of days left of the Future of Nutrition free online conference, which is fabulous. Why not take a look?
What I have discovered through this conference and also through the recent Hay House ‘Start the New You’ online webinar is just how much ‘we are what we eat’. Of course that concept has been around for a very long time and most of us are acutely aware that the quality of the food we eat affects our health.
But the biggest lie we have been sold in the past 30+ years is that of the LOW FAT DIET. What exactly does low fat mean? MORE SUGAR! And, according to so many of the health practitioners, in both conferences, sugar calories are FAR worse for our health than FAT calories, provided we are looking at natural, healthy fats.
Did you know that sugar is 8 times as addictive as cocaine??? And the real demon is HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, which is in so many of the processed manufactured foods in our supermarkets. Just look at the labels.
Check out what Dr. Mark Hyman (who was a participant in both webinars) has to say about this http://drhyman.com/blog/2013/11/11/never-eat-high-fructose-corn-syrup/
The disturbing part of all this is that the food industry is not only fully aware that they are causing this DIABESITY (obesity & diabetes) and contributing to the massive increase in easily preventable diseases, but they are fully supported by our governments! According to Dr. Joan Borysenko, whose book on ‘The Plant Plus Diet Solution’ will be published by Hay House later this year, between 2000 and 2010 the incidence of Alzheimers has increased by 70%! This is due to the ‘crap’ carbs that we are putting into our bodies.
The food manufacturers are fully aware of just how addictive sugar is and they create foods that hook us in. Just think of the advertising – for example, Lays Potato Chips – ‘betcha can’t eat just one’. Of course you can’t, because they have created an addiction in you and will power is only able to deal with it for so long…..
So don’t beat yourself up about your cravings. Be aware of them and GET MAD!
How DARE they and how DARE our governments allow this?
Do you really want your hard earned taxes to go on attempting to cure all these diseases and obesity? Do you really want to live a longer life if it means years of ill health?
If your answer is a resounding NO, then VOTE with your dollar and don’t buy this stuff. There are plenty of alternative, healthy and TASTY substitutes, which will not lead to these illnesses and obesity (which I will be sharing in the coming weeks as I explore them myself ).
Yes, I know, you’ve heard it all before and NO I am most definitely not perfect, but whilst ever we (and I include myself in this) do not make healthy choices, we are supporting the food companies who are not only massively contributing to our ill health, but to our children’s ill health and future generations. We are entering a crisis era, as we Baby Boomers begin to retire and the funds in the welfare kitty will not be able to support all the health care that will be required. So maybe it is worth giving it some thought and taking responsibility for your health and wellbeing now BEFORE you get sick.
Something to think about…..
