It’s All About the Food: Where the American Diet Went Wrong, Why That Matters to You, and What You Can Do about It
Greetings and Welcome,
As the book title suggests, the evolution of the standard American diet (also called the SAD diet because it truly is) has taken many of us down the cheap and easy path to ill health.
We may think everybody is sick, off and on. In truth, really healthy people are rarely sick but they don’t talk much about it. How many Facebook or Twitter posts say something like “Gosh, I feel so great today.”
Don’t be fooled. Frequent doctor visits and medications (including over the counter drugs) reflects a lack of health. Gaining weight slowly (or not so slowly) over time reflects a lack of health. At the absolute core of health is your diet.
More often than not, symptoms like bloating, stomach ache, sore joints, headaches, acid reflux, fatigue, general pain, weight gain or weight loss, sleeplessness (the list goes on and on), are the result of your body’s reaction to some food you are eating and your failure to consume the proper nutrients.
Treat those symptoms with a pill long enough and serious chronic diseases develop.
Really healthy now can mean living a quality life later. How long are you going to live? It’s a guess! Some dude texting while driving or a gas leak in your house could take you out anytime. What matters is enjoying the years you still have without significant illness.
My book, It’s All About the Food, explains how we got into this dietary pickle, how the SAD diet makes people sick, and helps you to decide what your personal diet ought to look like.
