Weight Gain, Cravings, & GeneticsWritten by LaZelle Blue Bradley
Jay Leno expressed on Tonight Show that as he interviewed people he realized that most of them had weight loss as their New Year’s resolution. Weight is indeed a major concern in United States. Overweight robs us of energy and encourages diseases.
Obesity is a sign that body is out of balance. Science knows how body gets proper nutrition. The answer is “Whole, live ,foods with living enzymes”. Weight loss pills and those who promise you lasting weight control, eat all you want, etc ,if you only take their pill, do not feed your body. Weight loss pills and fad diets may seem to work at first, but get off them and guess what? They do not correct imbalance. The weight can start to creep up again and only choice we have is to continue using them, although they don’t feed body and long term effects may not be known.
Our bodies crave junk foods, rich cheese sauces, fast food hamburgers(the biggest ones), breads, pastas and sugary desserts that they have become accustomed to. We are addicted. Sugars and flours make us sick, fat, and crazy. Many of regular grocery stores contain genetically engineered foods-no living enzymes.
Where do cravings come from? The basic underlying reason for craving is malnutrition. The body is simply not getting fed. This is confusing, especially to people who live in a country that has more food than any other. The myriad choices of foods in our markets would be mind-boggling for anyone who has lived in Iraq, for instance or in many other less well-supplied countries.
Why in a country so seemingly rich in foods ,are we starving? Why are we 17th on world longevity list? Why are we getting sicker and sicker?
Consider fact that even if you are eating vegetables and fruits and following recommended dietary requirements what you are eating is not feeding your body what it needs. Three areas of information may shed some light.
First, a study of current USDA nutrient tables for various vegetables and fruits coming off our fields today reveals a significant drop in nutrient contents since 1975 ,some of which are enormous. Senate Document #264,first issued in 1930’s and again in 1990’s States: The impoverished soil of American no longer provides plant foods with mineral elements essential to human nourishment and health…Laboratory tests prove that fruits, vegetables ,the grains, eggs and even milk and meat of today are not what they were a few generations ago…No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach is not big enough to hold them.. Physical ,mental and moral fitness depend largely upon an ample supply and a proper proportion of minerals in our foods.
The Cult Of the Slender - Utterly Absurd!Written by Christiane Beerlandt
HEALTH Good in Your Skin Invited by Albertville Health Group, Christiane Beerlandt came from Ostend to explain at length psychological and emotional origins of most important diseases and symptoms that can strike us. She underlined deeper meaning of earthly life and, especially, our self-healing powers. One has never seen an elephant swinging by a frail liana, no more than a monkey dragging a heavy load! This image could summarize — a little irreverently, however — words of Christiane Beerlandt. She wrote several books in field of psychology, health, nutrition, philosophy, and wellness. “Not going against nature, being and staying yourself, stout or thin, always good in your skin.” Last Tuesday evening, at “Val des Roses” Theater, Christiane Beerlandt spoke in her mother tongue, Dutch. Her words were faithfully translated by her husband, Dr. Dirk Lippens. Christiane Beerlandt is endowed with an extraordinary talent enabling her to consciously draw information from her deep source of wisdom. This is case, among others, in one of her books, entitled “The Key to Self-Liberation — 1000 Diseases and their Psychological Origins,” which has become a standard reference work for laymen as well as for doctors. She does not base herself on any existing work or on external observation of diseases or sick persons. “Happenings, phenomena, or diseases that occur in our lives don’t come up abruptly. They don’t happen by coincidence, they are not sent to us by some power or some god.” We have to look for causes in ourselves. We attract everything ourselves, energetically. Every happening or phenomenon in our lives is expression of something taking place on an underlying level: in our psyches, in our emotional lives, in realm of our convictions and expectations. In this way, human being creates his own life and happenings in his life, good or bad. All this mostly takes place on an unconscious level; this explains fact that most people say it “just” happens to them time and again. “In fact, we are not aware that everything is linked energetically, that human being constantly creates his own reality in accordance with his expectations and psychological state. Therefore, we can look in ourselves to find deeper causes of certain unpleasant things that happen to us, and undertake to solve them.” The Cult of Slenderness: Utterly Absurd! Fatalism will only play a role in our lives as long as we believe in it. According to speaker, illnesses are like signals: “Always ask yourself ‘why,’ and then make necessary adjustments on your path.” However, it’s author’s opinion that there aren’t any specific techniques required to do this.
