This is our premier work on changing one’s dietary habits, and it works! The first edition was printed in October of 2010, and had been made available exclusively to clients of The Natural Path as a part of their wellness experience. Although the government has re-assigned the Food Pyramid to a food plate, the principle remains unchanged.
The American public still lingers under the assumption that we live in a country of abundace when it comes to food. Yes, there is abundance. Just gaze at the abundance of overflowing waistlines on most Americans. Actually, many of us are starving to death with overfull stomachs. The bottom line (excuse the pun) is that food quality is what is deficient…not food quantity.
You can exercise till you drop, but you will not achieve true health until the body receives the proper raw materials with which it may repair, rejuvenate, and rebalance. A sports car does not do well if it is designed to run on high test gasoline, and you fill the tank with diesel fuel (which, incidentally, can be made from french fry oil).
If you listened to what had been endorsed as good eating habits, we’d all be “poppin’ fresh!” Fact is, that lobbyists, not nutritionists, are bombarding the media and our Congress with misleading information and statistics, designed to keep us on the path of obesity and chronic medication.
Eat whole, natural foods, as unadulterated with pesticides and additives as you can get them (the label “organic” only means 10% less pesticide as non-organic counterparts. Our book, The Reverse Food Pyramid, has a workbook incorporated in it that will keep you on track. It is not a diet book. It is a workbook and plan for healthy living designed to undo the harm that processed food, advertising, and poor nutrition has already wreaked upon your body.
