If you’ve ever felt like your body just won’t cooperate with your weight loss efforts, take a second look at your refrigerator before blaming your genetics. How much processed and sugary food is there compared to fresh and preservative-free options? Each time we eat “food” that has little nutritional value and even worse, contains poisons that disrupt the body’s ability to function smoothly, we add stress. Instead of being angry and frustrated, shouldn’t we actually be amazed and grateful that our bodies continue to work at all?
Give your body a break. Start incorporating clean eating habits into your daily life, and you may just find that the weight will start dropping off without you having to try so hard!
A new study finds that farms could significantly reduce their use of pesticides without any adverse effects on production or profits.
And who is worried that decreasing the use of pesticides will hurt their profits? Big chemical companies (Dow), of course! They’re not as concerned about the environmental pollution to the soil, or the food, or the farmers who work so closely with all the pesticides.
Anyone bothered by the fact that Europe has much stricter standards regarding pesticide use than the US? In fact, we’re the #2 top pesticide consuming country in the world. It does affect our health, and the health of our children. What’s more, the EPA just took a step backwards regarding Chlorpyrifos.
We need to pay close attention to what’s going on, and not blindly trust our regulatory administrations to keep us safe.
Don’t assume size and weight tell the real story of your body’s health, ladies, COMPOSITION is what matters: % body fat, lean muscle and bone density determine functionality, such as energy and endurance
