In the words of my gorgeous friend Joan who lost 54 kilograms and healed 3 “irreversable” illnesses.. “I am 100% responsible for my health.”
Did you know that most deaths in the Western world are somehow related to nutrition? That means most untimely deaths are preventable. According to the “Global Burden of Disease Study,” which was funded by the Gates Foundation, diet is the biggest cause of death and disability in the United States. Way more than smoking, actually!
And this is one of the most thorough analyses of risk factors ever completed, so these findings are not to be taken lightly.
It’s all about the food, beauties.
Food decides our longevity. Food decides how we live. Food decides our health, strength, and physical ability. Food decides whether or not we will be overweight. (Most of the time, of course.)
So, food, diet, nutrition…it’s pretty important, hey? You’d think it would be front and center on every medical student’s syllabus, wouldn’t you?
Sorry, gorgeous, but you’d think wrong.
Medical education is shamefully lacking when it comes to nutrition. The most powerful tool in the whole world is conspicuously missing from most doctors’ bags.
Of course, funding and limited time are big factors preventing capable, well-intentioned doctors from advising more patients more thoroughly about nutrition. But if you ask me, the pharmaceutical industry is the real culprit here. Sadly, big pharma has a lot more money to burn than your humble local farmers.
That, in a nutshell, is why I’m so passionate about doing what I’m doing. I want to empower you—yes, you!—to make the healthiest food choices possible for you and your families. I want to fill the gaps in your nutrition toolkit with simple, delicious, nourishing tools.
I want to support you in achieving the sustainable weight loss and glowing health that drugs could never give you.
I would love to hear from you, too. Did you ever find a diet-based solution to a health problem that conventional methods couldn’t heal? What did you learn about nutrition from your doctor’s office? What did you learn through your own research? Share in the comments below.
