Bottom line: If you eat with health as the foundation, you can eat pretty-much anywhere on the spectrum. Here's what I mean.
This video is very meaningful to me. Bottom line At the ripe old age of 58, this is one of the things that motivates me to exercise and eat in a healthful manner. Here's what I have observed - most of my peers are on meds (*statins seem to be "the most popular") and are very accepting of being part of the medical industrial complex.
*Here's what Dr. Nortin Hadler says about statins: "I am unwilling to let anyone test my cholesterol. Not only is it a weak risk factor in well people, but there is also no compelling evidence that even if my cholesterol was "high" swallowing any statin would benefit me."
This is one of the funniest YouTube videos I have ever seen. Not only is it funny, it's an accurate portrayal of what happens when you indulge in the Standard American Diet. Yep, it's SAD.
In our culture, it takes a tremendous amount of motivation to permanently change your lifestyle. Here are the three things that started my journey. These "three things" and more keep me motivated.
First up ... a presentation by Michael Pollan. I found it interesting, intriguing, and disturbing. It sucked me in and I wanted to learn more. And learn I did.
Second up ... was an article about our medical industrial complex: titled: Lies, Damn Lies, and Medical Science. It begins with this provocative claim: Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. So why are doctors—to a striking extent—still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? Dr. John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science.
I found it interesting, intriguing, and disturbing. It sucked me in and I wanted to learn more. And learn I did.
Third up ... is this interesting article: The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food. While it's a new article, the information within has been written about for a while. I found it interesting, intriguing, and disturbing. It sucked me in and I wanted to learn more. And learn I did.
In addition to researching and learning, I changed my lifestyle. I lost weight and gained health.
I hope the above information assists with your quest for weight-loss and long-term health.
