You Really Are What You Eat
This article has been taken from the ‘huge’ article I wrote as a final exam and posted on here as one of my first. It can now be delivered in more ‘bite sized’ pieces to hopefully make more enjoyable.
You are what you eat! Today it is said so often by so many people but do we really know how true this statement is? You are what you eat – does this mean if you eat a lot of burgers you will turn into a burger? Or if you eat a lot of vegetables you will start sprouting? No, it doesn’t, this statement needs to be taken literally, more like you are what you’ve eaten. Please let me explain. . . . . . . .
To put it quite simply the food we eat is broken down into tiny building blocks which is then built back up into human tissue. Like I said ‘you are what you’ve eaten’. David Wolfe puts it perfectly when he says ‘’the food we eat creates the tissues of our bodies, the energy of our bodies and deliberately effects the quality of our thoughts.’’ Take a min to think about this statement, the food we eat creates the tissues of our bodies, so if what we’re putting in our mouths is processed foods with additives, flavourings, colourings, enhancers, stabilisers, preservatives, hormones, steroids, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, fast food high in fat, sugar, salt and MSG then the body has nothing else that it can build new tissue from except the building blocks that you have supplied, and in this example they are not the best choice of building blocks. If this was to be your diet then you would actually be built from this! You are what you eat! You are what you’ve eaten!
‘’We must make nutrition the primary prevention strategy for the global population and we have to be as zealous on nutrition as we apparently are on global warming. What we have to do is persuade the public you are what you eat, food can change your mood and you are everything you have ever done to yourself.’’ (Philip Day. Investigative journalist and author.)
Food really does matter. In these modern times with our fast food restaurants, takeaways , microwave meals and processed packaged snacks at every corner we turn, we really do forget how important food is and not only how important food is but how powerful food is, Hippocrates, the godfather of modern medicine’ said ‘’let medicine be thy food and food be thy medicine.’’ He truly believed the body had an innate power to heal itself from all illness. He’s not the only one, there are many people out there right now curing people of all types of illnesses using only nutrition, no modern medicine what so ever and with shockingly excellent results in all areas.
In my next article we will look into diabetes mellitus being cured using only nutrition by the great Dr Gabriel Cousins.
