Why are so many people suffering from poor health these days?

We should be asking…Why are so many people suffering from poor health these days?

The reason for this is simple. We are not thinking before eating.

The Diet of Humans living in the Western world on average consists of three main grains including maize, wheat, and rice, in their processed form stripped of their germ layer. These nutrient poor grains form 40% of our diet. Meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products form 45% of the average modern Western world diet, and fruit and vegetables form the remaining 15%. This diet is a far cry from the one our bodies are meant to consume and to thrive on. Modern human diets are high in fat, low in fiber, and high in carbohydrates, which we have efficient mechanisms to support their breakdown and gain nutrients from them. This leads to the statistics of our day and age:

  • More than 34.9% or 78.6 million adults and 17% of the youth in the United States are obese.(1)
  • Obesity-related conditions including heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer are all on the list of leading causes of death. Research proves that these are mostly preventable deaths. (2, 3)
  • The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the US was $190 billion in 2012; the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of healthy weight. (4)
  • Obesity has risen by 34% since 1960, and morbid obesity (BMI above 40) has risen sixfold to 6%. (4)  According to the Boston Medical Centre, approximately 45 million Americans diet each year and spend $33 billion on weight loss products in their pursuit of a trimmer, fitter, healthier body. (5)

It is only by following the natural laws of nature will we be able to take back what is lawfully ours and to start living the healthy life we deserve.

In my new international Amazon bestseller: “The Guerrilla Diet & Lifestyle Program” I cover my research on the subject of what humans should be eating to support health and natural weight loss from a broad perspective. It is the choice of fuel we use to supply energy to our bodies that have such a substantial impact on our lives. We, as consumers, have an effect not only on our health through what we choose to consume, but also on the health of the animals and our planet. We have the power, through our food and lifestyle choices to make an amazing impact not only on our personal lives but also on the lives of millions of other people and animals.

Our food choices affect every aspect of our life here on earth. They affect our mood and our energy levels which affect our relationships and our health, they affect our genome and that of our future generations (through epigenetics) which will have its toll on our financial situation, and also affect the livelihood of our animal neighbours to the planet as well as global weather conditions (through the waste food industries are generating and the usage of immense amounts of fossil fuel energy to support our extravagant, and generally excessive lifestyles. These affect our future as well as our peace of mind. The solution to a happier, healthier world and life begins by making knowledgeable food choices.
