The Real World
I'm a nutritarian who lives in the real world.
I have children, so therefore, I have a vehicle that hides half eaten suckers and stale candy bars deep within its seats. I find them. I usually eat them.
I have a little boy who likes to have “treat dates” with his mom. I'll be his date.
I have a young adult daughter who has sprouted wings, and flown to new adventures, and wants to show me her exciting city, and the Italian restaurants that abound within. I'll visit her discoveries.
I have graduation and birthday parties to attend. Weddings to celebrate. Art openings to linger at. Holidays to enjoy. I'll continue to rejoice with family and friends.
I’m 100% committed to living the ideal life of excellent health and well-being within the real world.
The real world…filled with pizza, chips, dip, macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, fries, pop, stale candy, birthday cake and parties, ice cream treats, social events and holiday gatherings centered around high fat / low nutrient foods, chronic malnutrition, organic depression, type II diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, achy joints, lethargy, chronic fatigue, a stuffy nose, back pain, triple bypass surgery, dialysis, astronomical medical bills, insulin, heart meds, ace inhibitors, anti-depressants loaded with toxic side-effects, baggy “fat clothes” composed of black shirts and stretch pants, and absolutely nothing fun to wear.
I eat to live. I eat for health.
I nourish my cells with nutrient dense foods.
I am kind and gentle to my body.
I’m fully committed.
How have you managed to commit to Dr. Fuhrman’s nutritarian lifestyle while living within the real world?
