The hidden Battle
By Myrna Haag RD, LD/N
The body is the vessel we use to bring positive change. What if that vessel becomes hijacked, what if we become about the vessel and nothing about the change. Do we lose the ability to fight because we become dumbed down and numb? Is the benchmark so low that it doesn’t take much to reach it, when in reality it isn’t a benchmark at all…. it is an accepted norm.
The norm is to be overweight, fatigue and only do what is needed to get by. The “getting by” becomes the benchmark. Food has everything to do with this. You become what you put in your mouth, and your food environment is about profit and pleasure, not about making you the best you can be.
You can’t reach your optimum self with a sub optimal vessel. You will give away your dreams and follow the accepted norms. You will not be able to be the positive change God intended. It is hard to do great things when you have the burden of a tired, depressed, unmotivated vessel; this will become your focus. Food has everything to do with this.
Ripping yourself from sugar, fat and salty foods is hard work. You must swim against the tide. You will NEVER get a break. It will be everywhere. If you try to push away it will be difficult. Most people have reached the accepted benchmark for normal, therefore you are the crazy fanatic one.
How can you expect people to fight for what is right when they can’t even fight for their next meal. How can you expect people to swim against the tide when they can’t even lift their head to see what is real and what is not. To exercise one hour a day, and prepare real food that promotes healing and growth is not an accepted norm.
We are in a hidden battle when food becomes about pleasure and not about growth and exercise pain is unwelcomed, the truth becomes twisted.
Stop eating Processed sugar and fat – it is an addictive trap
Eat 4-5 cups of colorful vegetables a day. 1-2 cups raw
Make yourself move everyday. Start with what you can do and work up to an hour.
When you are strong enough- make yourself push the limits of what you think you can do.
Don’t ever get too comfortable, leads to complacency and erosion of self-worth
