Do you feel a little off? Actually, let me rephrase that. How does your body feel, right now? Do you feel energized and light? Or do you feel sluggish and bloated? What have you eaten today?
Over the past few years, health and nutrition knowledge has spread like wildfire. Everyday, more and more people are taking interest in how to heal their sicknesses and are finding that treating their symptoms with medication just simply isn’t enough. You may have heard of, or seen the documentary, “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”, which tells the story of Joe Cross, a man who was 100 pounds overweight, ridden with illness, and was told he didn’t have long to live. After trying and failing to heal with western medicine prescriptions, he cured his illness through diet. Cross switched over from fast food to a diet full of fruits and vegetables.

You are what you eat. We hear this all the time, yet few of us actually apply it to our lives!
Do you eat oily foods? Do you eat spicy foods? Do you eat fresh foods? With every bite you take, you are conditioning your body to be just like the food it is consuming.
Let’s break that down. If you order a sandwich from a restaurant and choose to have a side of fries, you will probably feel:
- dehydrated from the excess salt,
- sluggish from the high amounts of oil your body will have to process, and
- your blood sugar may rise and fall quickly from the amount of simple sugars (carbohydrates) in the potatoes.
This is not to say that you should never had french fries again, but it is an incredible feeling to be so in tune with your body that you know exactly what you are doing to it with each bite you take.
This is only the tip of the iceberg of all of the info on how you can transform your body with each food choice, and each bite. We will cover macronutrients, like carbs, fats, and proteins, as well as topics like organic foods and powerful herbs.
