Do you realize that diseases that used to only manifest in the elderly are now prevalent in children and young adults? One in four children have pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, this is the type that is totally preventable! In less than ten years the rate of young adults with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes has risen from 9% to 23%.
Here is something else to think about, today 37% of kids at a normal weight have one or more cardiovascular risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Did you read that? Normal weight. Doesn’t that make you wonder why? Doesn’t that make you think, “what about all the overweight kids, what kind of risk factors are they facing?”
I believe that we need a revolution. A Real Food Revolution! It’s time that we take the advice of Hippocrates who knew long, long, long ago what works best for a healthy vibrant body: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Did you know that in America we are currently raising the second generation of children who don’t know how to cook? I am amazed when I hear people say they don’t cook. I just can’t figure out what they eat, it baffles my mind to think that they open up a box or a package or that they go out to eat for every meal of every day.
To top it all off the average American child doesn’t know how to identify the most basic fruits and vegetables. To me, it sounds like a lot of people are living in a sad state and it is absolutely time to change our lives, now and for the future!
I’m ready to help you get on the path of the Real Food Revolution. To cheer you on as you make changes in your lifestyle, changes that will bring a new sort of light into your life.
It’s time to be conscious about what you put into your body. It’s time to know what your body needs and is really craving.
Are you ready?
