Are Americans Eating Enough Food?
Obesity is reaching epidemic proportions. But, is it possible we are still not eating enough food to be healthy? Many of the foods we eat have been so heavily processed that it is unreasonable to call them food.
Food is meant to supply more than just calories or fuel. It should even supply more than just vitamins and minerals. Food has a depth that is not easily accounted for by what you find on a nutrition label. If the body were a simple machine, then today’s food would be sufficient. However the body is highly complex, far beyond anything ever created by man.
Today’s Foods Don’t Meet the Body’s Need
The body is constantly carrying out billions of reactions everyday and food is designed to perfectly match its need. When we alter food through typical food processing, many of the beneficial components are destroyed or removed. This processing creates calorie rich ingredients such as refined flour, sugar and oil. These ingredients are in almost all processed foods and it would be difficult to equate these products with food. They are more like the feed used to fatten cattle.
Synthetic nutrients that are derived from petroleum, coal tar and genetically modified organisms are added to the diet to overcome what is lacking. Many of these synthetic nutrients are poorly absorbed and utilized by the body.
Real, Whole Foods for Optimal Health
Food naturally packages nutrients for optimal absorption and utilization. Real, whole food is also full of 1000’s of phytochemicals that are showing incredible benefits for health in clinical research. Food imitators, containing just a few dozen isolated nutrients and calories, can never fulfill the body’s need like real, whole foods.
Real, Whole Food empowers the body to get the most out of life: laser focused concentration, high powered energy, optimal weight control, sounder sleep, super fueled strength and endurance, high level defense from toxins, optimum stress management. Calorie rich, nutrient poor food only benefits weight gain and doesn’t supply the variety of food components that help us have optimal health. These missing food components hold the key to unlocking the body’s healing potential.
