You’re going to love today’s Success Story. Aida has been working with me since last Fall, and so far, she’s lost more than 30 pounds ( so has her husband ). She’s also reduced and eliminated several medications, become a regular “packer” and
“cooker”, and broken her food addiction. Really broken, as in, it’s amazing. Thank goodness she listened to her “fear”. Too many people AREN’T afraid of the state of their health, they think their prescription drugs actually make them well. They don’t.
If you’re on meds, say like, BP pills, statins, mood meds, migraine/headache pills, pain pills, stomach pills, etc, you’re got problems. These medications aren’t making you better, they’re suppressing and managing your symptoms; the CAUSE of the symptoms is still there and still doing damage. If you want to get healthy, you have to (1) eat for health (2) figure out the root cause of the symptoms and address that (lifestyle changes).
Aida’s a Type 2 Diabetic; diabetes 2 is a LIFESTYLE disease. It can be reversed through lifestyle changes. Insulin and blood sugar rise and fall according to our food choices, exercise/activity, and stress management. No One has diabetes because they’re deficient in diabetes drugs. Did you know that by 2020, the CDC predicts that 50% of the US will be diabetic, and that it will cost 3.35 TRILLION dollars to “manage” it. Not CURE it, or REVERSE it, but MANAGE it. No health care system EVER could afford that. EVER.
What about Food Addiction, because this is HUGE. I know I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: if you’re trying to get healthy/lose weight with Low Fat, No Fat foods, or Diet Processed Foods, you’re just feeding and nurturing your addiction and furthering your inflammatory state. You’ve got to ditch Grains, Sugar, Chemicals, and Hydrogenated Oils, and you’ve got to focus on a diet full of healthy fats, good proteins, TONS of vegetables, some fruits, some nuts and seeds, some dairy if you can tolerate it. Grains, sugars, and chemicals stimulate the Addictive Areas of Your Brain. Always.
Think you can’t live without your Cereal, your Bread, Your Beer or Wine (liquid donuts)? You can. Lot’s of people break their addictions, why couldn’t you?
Moms and Dads, are you raising future Diabetics, or future Food Addicts? If you’re raising your kids on a diet of pop tarts, cereals, sandwiches, pizza, and junk food, rest assured, you are. And it will happen to them far quicker than it happened to your generation. No One can eat those foods without accumulating damage. No One.
Take control of your thoughts, instead of nurturing your addictions, nurture positive habits and attitudes about food, yourself, and exercising. Forget everything Big Food, Big Pharma, and our government has told you about Healthy Whole Grains. All carbohydrates are broken down to single cell sugars in our gut; that means ALL CARBS BECOME EITHER GLUCOSE OR FRUCTOSE. ALL OF THEM. High blood glucose and fructose levels and high insulin create an inflammatory state, and inflammation’s the cause of EVERY DISEASE OUT THERE. You can change yourself. Honest. You can be an inspiration and example for your children. You can feel energetic and well; you can be a healthy weight, start with Real Whole Food.
Here’s Aida’s story:
Last fall, I was scared. I was tired. I was frustrated.
I had let my health go unchecked, even though I knew better, and was on a lot of medications. I had let my appetites go unchecked, knowing that it was hurting my body, but I was addicted. Now, my doctors were getting really serious with me, and it made me scared. They kept adding more and more medications. I had to do something, but I felt as if I had tried everything before and failed. Why try it again to just fail again? When I tried to do what the doctors told me to do, it seemed as if I never improved, and sometimes got worse. I was also seeing my husband’s health getting worse as well. We didn’t want to do another weight loss diet. We needed to get healthy. We wanted to get healthy.
Someone suggested I look at this website, and enter Debbie! Debbie sat us down together and began teaching us. This is the first time I had heard most of the information she was sharing. Her plan for us began with just eat real whole foods! Our health would begin with what we put in our mouths, and our attitudes towards our foods. Stop wheat and other grains – which we had done before and were somewhat successful with. We knew we could do that. Stop sugars, including most artificial sweeteners, which would be tougher, because I was addicted.
We listened to what she had to say and began implementing this new approach and were shocked that almost immediately we saw improvement in our health. Hunger went away. Cravings went away. For me, my blood sugars normalized within days! I began to look forward to my next round of doctors, just to make sure that this new way of life was really working. And it was! All my “numbers” showed improvement within a couple of months, and have continued to improve with each doctor visit. I have been taken off some of the medications.
Through monthly meetings and daily emails, Debbie has continued to teach and encourage. She has helped me understand what makes me personally healthy. She has helped me with my food addictions. My husband’s health also reflects the changes we have made.
Now, I am looking forward to this spring, with clarity, with energy, and healthier (and lighter) than I have been in over 30 years!
