If you are reading this, I hope you had a great first day back at work. Even if you did not, take that bad day and make it better.
I might sound more like an activist than a weight loss coach in this post, but my mission in life is to Eliminate Disease and Obesity – without using metformin, statins, and big Rx Industry.
I am sure all of you, and I have believed the “Health Food Industry” at some point in our lives and purchased low-fat milk, low sugar lemonade, a Lean Cuisine or Weight Watchers Meal to lose weight.
Only to find out that you put on more weight as the days go by and by the way you have no energy, you crash 2 hours after eating your diet food and have to go back for your next diet coke.
Seen in big bold colorful writing on food labels – No Sugar added, Low Fat, No High Fructose Corn Syrup, Low Sugar, heart-healthy.. I can probably go on and on about the adjectives being freely used, but you get the point.
Today I want to call them out – the food and health Industry in USA
for their total, utter and complete “fortified” Bull$$$t,
You have been lied to for decades by food pyramids, politicians, and lobbyists because keeping you in the dark is good for the big Food, big Pharma, Hospitals, Doctors, Health Insurance, and even the diet food industry.
A 2020 Study by NHANES determined that over 73% of US adults are overweight or obese. See what I meant by who is benefitting from the lies perpetrated by the food industry.
I am here to tell you to stop believing the lies of the Health (Read: Processed) food Industry. and I understand I am punching a hornet’s nest by saying this but I was never known for playing it safe so here goes:
They want to keep you stuck.
They don’t have your best interest at heart.
If you want to live a long and healthy life if you want to be able to live long enough to see your children and grandchildren….
Then here is the real truth
You have to break the addiction to Processed Food.
If you are sick, have diabetes, high cholesterol, a heart condition, or are overweight or obese.
It is not you, that is the Problem. It is the chemistry of the food that you eat.
Fix the nutrition first, and It becomes a no-brainer to lose weight.
Really, no matter what diet you follow, you will be fine as long as you eat unprocessed food. And it is everywhere. It is difficult to avoid. Pretty much everything is processed and modified but try as best as you can to read the ingredient label.
If it has a paragraph of ingredients listed with pronunciations that sound like a word out of a spelling bee challenge, then it is most likely processed.

Eat REAL foods – foods that are grown, not manufactured, processed or modified and they do not contain unnecessary additives or preservatives to make it shelf-stable. Think fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes, lean meat and fish.
Here are some other ideas to help you get unprocessed foods:
- Buy Local: Local produce has longer to ripen naturally before they’re picked. This means more nutrients for you!
- Avoid the “Dirty Dozen”: This is the list put together by the Environmental Working Group that highlights the produce that has the highest pesticide residues than other produce items.
- Eat Seasonal Produce: Seasonally fresh produce is picked when ripe and fully developed. This means the plant has also had more sun exposure and will have higher levels of antioxidants.
- Wash Your Produce: If you are unable to purchase organic produce, make sure to wash it well in order to remove harmful pesticides from the surfaces of the food.
Eating unprocessed foods is a lifestyle choice. Once you notice the positive benefits, it will quickly become a habit!
Figure out, how can you make this habit tinier?
Start by making just a few small changes. Choose fresh, raw, whole foods and get into the habit of keeping them readily available so you can snack on them at a moment’s notice.
Feel the difference.
