Natural Weight Loss
What’s the best way you can be sure to avoid 90% of all hormone-disrupting agents in your food supply?
The term “organic” applies to a farming method that raises food without pesticides or other chemicals.
The idea is by allowing natural processes and biodiversity to enrich the soil, as opposed to relying upon synthetic chemicals or genetically modified seeds to protect the crops from pests, we’ll get healthier food and a healthier environment.
Organics help you stay slim and prevent diabetes.
More than 90% of endocrine-disrupting pesticides that hang around in your body tissues come from foods we consume – especially animal products.
Organics help you avoid scary hormones.
The FDA currently permits 6 kinds of steroid hormones to be used in producing cattle and sheep.
Eighty percent of the U.S. feedlot cattle are fed or injected with steroid hormones.
Each of these cows gains up to 3 pounds per day.
Organics help you avoid pesticides and other chemicals.
A study at the University of Washington found the urine of kids who ate mostly conventional (i.e., pesticide-laden) diets had 9 times the organophosphorus pesticide concentration of kids who ate mostly organic.
Organics help you prevent antibiotic resistance.
Massive use of antibiotics in the meat and dairy industries leads to widespread antibiotic resistance, exposing us to potentially fatal bacteria like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA.
Organics make your food taste better.
Organic food is and will always be fresher than nonorganic food – without pesticides and chemical preservatives, organic produce has to be eaten faster or it’ll rot!
Organics in season make your diet more diverse.
You’ll switch up your fruits and veggies repertoire – asparagus in the spring, tomatoes all summer, kale and sweet potatoes in the fall – and get more phytochemicals automatically.
Organics make your food more nutritious.
Organic fruits and vegetables can’t rely on pesticides – they have to fight off bugs with their own “immune systems,” naturally raising their antioxidant levels.
Organics help you save the earth.
Produce grown in the United States travels an average of 1500 miles before it gets sold.
But organic farming uses 30% less fossil fuels while it conserves water, reduces soil erosion, maintains soil quality, and removes carbon dioxide from the air.
One quick example: Take our Power Nutrient food tomatoes.
God created tomatoes and they have all the cancer-fighting health benefits mentioned above – the best form of medicine with no harmful side effects.
Now let’s take our little tomato and see what happens to it in the conventional food world.
The tomato is grown and sprayed with up to 7 kinds of pesticides.
Then it’s picked too early because it has to make the long journey across the country – or across the world – from its original location to your supermarket.
Yes, you’re now polluting the environment with all the gas used to transport the tomato.
But there’s more.
The tomato is still green because it was picked too early, so now it’s sprayed with argon gas (also used to euthanize dogs) to make it turn red prematurely.
We have just taken God’s natural medicine and turned it into poison – for us and our environment.
That’s why we simply must make efforts to go organic.
The more each of us votes with our dollars for products not produced with toxins, the quicker we’ll help right the wrongs and get this earth back where it belongs.
As more people eat organic, organic food will become cheaper.
Come join me on my weight loss journey! I’d love to have you along!
