Feed Your Body Well

Feed Your Body Well - Louise Hay

I seem to be talking a lot about nutrition these days. No matter how spiritual you are, no matter how much self-esteem you have, I doubt that you’d put a Diet Coke in your automobile and expect it to run well. It would gum up the works so badly that your car would be in the shop in no time. Yet our current American diet has us putting the most atrocious substances in our bodies and expecting to have good health.

As an automobile needs premium fuel to operate well, our bodies need real, fresh food to maintain health. Packaged food creates dis-ease. There’s no nourishment in it. The body can only handle it for so long. Then, when you do have a problem, you usually take an over-the-counter or prescription drug. This is another form of poison.

However, when you reach the age of 40—after years of eating a high-fat, high-salt, high-sugar, highly processed diet and taking these chemical drugs—your body begins to rebel. It has nothing to do with aging. It’s because the body has become toxic and can’t handle these poisons anymore.

So often when I read your emails and letters, the nutritional problem jumps out at me. It speaks louder than the mental problem. I want to say: “Please stop eating all that junk food and turn to a very simple diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, and protein. Drop the sugar, cut back on wheat products, and eat very small amounts of dairy.” I know that your health can return very quickly when you do this.

I highly recommend a wonderful new book titled Raw Basics: Incorporating Raw Living Foods into Your Diet Using Easy and Delicious Recipes, by Jenny Ross. Eating raw foods isn’t for everyone, I know. But I personally know Jenny and have experienced her delicious food first hand. One thing I am certain of, Jenny doesn’t drink Diet Coke! I hope you’ll give her recipes a try.

Let’s affirm: I take care of my body. I cherish and revere the temple I’m in.

    How true it is that certain foods do nourish our bodies so well and others are toxic! I'm learning new recipes every day for meals and snacks that nourish rather than poison my Temple, and it's an adventure! Thank you for this post! Peace, Light, & Blessings!

    I have been starting every day with 32 oz of Green Lemonade from The Raw Food Detox Diet, by Natalia Rose. I feel energized and HAPPIER. My eight-year-old son also enjoys it and shares the morning with me! I walk or run 3 miles and return to this healthy breakfast!

    As someone who has seen my parents bodies breakdown, I am so resonating with the idea that we have control. I want to live to be a healthy active senior. Thank you for leading the charge. It is simple but definitely not easy. We need reminders as often as possible that there are options. Thanks for leading the charge. Rock on!

    I only eat whole foods. My skin and body have aged very well because of this. Last year at my checkup my dr said i should be a poster women for great bloodwork. As the author of the south beach diet said we spend the first half of our life destroying our health and the second half trying to get it back.. How true.

    thank you for such a great advice. yes it's true, no matter how motivated we are, if our physique condition is poor, that results to poor performance at work, and at life also.. ;)
