Recently I lost an old school friend to cancer, one of my wife’s friends had to have surgery, a colleague is undergoing treatment and I could go on. All this prompted me to lose weight and get healthy. There are some no doubt amazing health related ideas out there – but one thing that everyone in the health space agrees on is that eating fruit and veg is essential – problem is can you honestly say you eat enough and get a good variety.
We tend to judge ourselves on our intentions (and others on their actions) so meaning to eat them and knowing we should makes us feel good – but can you honestly look at your actions and say you are eating right.
Most people don’t and that’s why I started taking these whole foods – they come from a 25 year old company with tons of scientific research – all independent to prove they actually work.
So I am leaving the fad diets and latest craze behind to stick with real food – here is what happens when you eat them.
