Did you ever think about what and how do we eat? It seems that food culture in the USA is developed. However, there are so many people who obese and do not fit into an airplane’s seat.
How it happened that descendants of Europe become prominent people? It is discovered that it is enough for one generation to become fat, eating junk food. Most everybody knows that soda drinks have plenty of sugar, and processed food does not have any nutrients, just empty calories.
The question is why people do not think what and how do they eat. I doubt that individuals do not want to look good, feel energetic, and rid of problems associated with weight.
I guess that nobody explained to them why pounds add up and how it can be harmful in the future.
Information is the key to the discovery of independent exploration
People who understand the laws of Nature and what kind of consequences can be after destructive habits do not have problems with well-being.
Laws of Nature
There are plenty of rules of Nature. However, in this article, I would like to point to a reckless attitude towards food.
Our body is a living entity. It consists of living and vibrating cells. These cells build tissues, muscles, organs. Food must be full of vital nutrients. Minerals, enzymes, proteins, vitamins, amino acids provide body needed material for metabolism.
The body needs constant replenishment because there are plenty of minerals which enter a body with food. The body does not produce them.
Quality Versus Quantity
When we consume junk food, we get empty calories. The body requires food, but it does not get enough. Why? Processed food is heated, frozen, and expected to stay on shelf few weeks, months, or years.
Dead food does not bring energy to us. We feel sluggish and exhausted. Do we analyze what the reason of lack of energy and vitality is? Nope, most of us drink more soda drinks and order another pizza.
Food created for eating. In our lives, it is the opposite situation. We live to eat. This reverse process brings harmful consequences. Overeating changes the size of the stomach. Did you ever think why operations to remove part of the stomach are so popular?
Besides it, when the stomach does not have time to digest food, it goes to the intestine and starts to rot. Various toxins show up; yeast takes over good bacteria, meteorism and constipation begin to bother us.
Sometimes I think that people so used to be in uncomfortable situations that they forgot what it means to be healthy and enjoy life.
Teeth are for chewing
Teeth mission is to eat food 50-100 times. How many times do you chew food? I wonder if people chew at all. They swallow chunks and later on look for chemicals ( I mean drugs) to remove heaviness in the stomach.
It would be lovely that in schools pupils would get first habits on how to be healthy. Usually, children feel which food is right for them. My parents thought that milk is good for health. My opinion was different. I poured milk to cardboard boxes and hide sausages between books. Later on, when parents found out it, they stopped to stuff me with cheap food.
Dr.Carolyn Dean offered an excellent method for showing how sugar harms children. She advised keeping children six days without candies and last day of the week give full permission to eat all sweets what children could get.
Usually, after consuming enormous amounts of candy, children felt sick and did not want to eat sweets anymore.
Eat to Live
Adults do not pay attention to signals from the body. If something bothers them, they pop a pill. Does it help? Yes, it does, but bodies do not benefit from it.
If we paid attention to what do we eat, we would enjoy good health.
Food is the source of energy. Junk food does not provide any power.
Chewing food, we help the stomach. The saliva in mouth prepares food for digestion, makes food smooth and accessible for stomach acid.
Nature gave us all the tools to be healthy. If we do not use a brain to understand what is going on, we get harsher measures. However, why do we need to wait until our health start to crumble? It is better to educate ourselves, take care of bodies, and follow simple laws of Nature.
Do you have any questions? I would be glad to answer and hear from you.
