For those of you new to the blog, I was formerly an obese and chronically malnourished food addict who has been completely set free from all food addictions and eating disorders; including anorexia, nutrient restrictive dieting, yo-yo dieting, and binge eating disorder as result of embracing the nutritarian lifestyle that’s described in Eat to Live and Eat for Health. Here is my transformation.
Ever since I started the journey to get my health back, many have volunteered to share stories with me about their own struggles with food addiction, and the pain and misery that it has created in their lives.
Losing weight primarily to fit into a pair of skinny jeans is a thing of the past for most.
Lives are literally being destroyed, and families are falling a part due to toxic food addiction and chronic malnutrition. Homes are in disrepair. Finances are drained. Marriages are on the rocks. Children are neglected. It’s a sad scene.
Food addiction may seem insignificant to many, but it’s sabotaging one of the core values of America which is liberty and justice for all.
As a culture we have become captive to high fat, high salt, low nutrient, processed foods. This generation of youth is being raised on sweetened cereal, macaroni and cheese, and chicken nuggets, which will only perpetuate the continual cycle of addiction.
The following quote was posted on a bus hut sign in front of a large children’s hospital:
"Are we feeding our children to death? This may be the first generation of kids not to outlive their parents."
As a nation, we are in a malnutrition crisis. The Nutritional Research Project is a foundation that has been established to promote scientific research and public education, including educational outreach to children, to prevent dietary-caused disease resulting in chronic illness and premature death.
Please take a moment to check out this important work for the future health of America at NutritionalResearch.org.
The change of one person is a transformation. The change of many is a revolution.
For the sake of our children and future generations, let’s all be a part of the change that it’s going to take to support optimal health and well-being for all.
