After being sent information on two provocative supplements for weight loss by interested people in the last week I am writing in defense of lifestyle and doing the work of self care with joy. I have learned more from keeping the work outs going and the healthy eating choices going amid life events, challenges and set backs that is of great value. The value of the focus, discipline, energy and training of my mind and getting to know myself is not something I would trade for any amount of fast pounds in weight loss. My body is designed for daily movement and daily real food and I am gratefully not interested in a pill or product to lose weight quickly and easily. I would be missing out on learning, practicing and wanting to take care of myself each day.
Mother Nature has all the large food manufacturers beat. She had them whipped before they started thinking of putting an extra bit of crunch into crunch or the creamy filling inside the somewhat subdued chocolate outerwear. What people don't realize is that there is food and there is what has been so aptly named by Michael Pollen, food-like substances. That is the larger picture. Mother Nature (without the help of Monsanto) has it all figured out, has it all down to a Science. We get the health benefits from all her products and they go perfectly with our human bodies for our bodies to thrive, to energize and to resist disease. That is ALOT of benefit and She does not need any long legal process to make those claims. Look for the foods without the labels. The label-less foods that contain hundreds of synergetic components and are real food that nurture and heal our bodies.
