Weight Gain Understood
Whereas diets don’t work in the long run, lifestyle improvement offer lifelong health benefits. The life in our foods communicates with the life in us, but, unfortunately, this vital aspect is lost once foods are processed. White, refined foods are addictive, we always want more in an effort to find that spark of life that has been removed from these foods, ironically to give them shelf life.
When food is whole, ripe, fresh and organic, it not only contains vitamins and minerals that satisfy us, in addition to the essential fiber that keeps us full, but it isn’t an incapacitating full feeling as after the standard holiday dinner. Feeling full on fresh foods is being free of hunger, satisfied, and energetic.
The fiber in all fresh produce has powerful cleansing benefits. When food is refined, processed, denatured in packages, it no longer has the above characteristics in tact, and the eater will not be satisfied in the long run. In an attempt to obtain the essential nutrients, there will always be a craving for more. Refined foods will always lack what the body needs, and overeating of nutritionally empty foods ensues. The overweight victim is really starving for nutrients found only in fresh plant foods – Fruits and Vegetables.
