Our approach to food is often quite mindless even though the health of every cell, tissue, organ, as well as our emotional and even spiritual well-being is affected by our food choices. Jay Leno, the comedian, observed this fact when he said, “I went into a McDonald’s yesterday and said, ‘I’d like some fries.’ The girl at the counter said, ‘Would you like some fries with that?’”
Think of the last time you sat down to a quick meal at a local fast-food restaurant or opted for the drive-through window as you rushed back to the office. You probably don’t remember tasting the food you bought, let alone enjoying it.
This week, I would like you to start by becoming more conscious of your food choices, the spaces between meals, the frequency with which you eat, the selection in your fridge and pantry, and the labels on the foods you choose. Becoming more conscious of our current habits can open up our awareness to making better choices for the future. And, since we’ll be jumping into The Life Force Diet in just a few days, it’s valuable to be aware of your “jumping-off-point.”
Life force foods are the secret weapon against aging, excess weight, and disease of all kinds. In addition to the many vitamins, minerals, natural plant pigments, and other healing phytonutrients found in life force foods, many life force foods are packed with miracle healing substances called enzymes. Enzymes in foods were only discovered over the past several decades, yet are showing tremendous promise to prevent or heal disease, restore great health, slow the aging process, and help with weight loss. They are incredibly powerful and wide-acting because they help restore the function of our natural bodily processes and biochemical functions. In other words, they don’t just eliminate symptoms: They get to the root cause of our suffering.
Next week (the first week of The Life Force Diet) you’ll be eliminating the foods that block your health, well-being, and vitality. The following week you’ll begin to add the Life Force Silver Foods that are jam-packed with nutrients into your diet. And, finally, in week three of The Life Force Diet, you’ll be making 50 percent of your diet Life Force Gold Foods: Nature’s crowning glory of healing and weight-loss wonders (if you are underweight or are already at a balanced weight your body will simply benefit from the healing effects of the Life Force Gold Foods.)
The Life Force Diet begins as a three-week program because research shows that after 21 days of making a change in our lives, it will become a habit. And that’s exactly what I’m hoping The Life Force Diet will be for you–a great habit that you continue for the rest of your life.
By becoming aware of your current food choices and habits, you’ll open yourself to a better understanding of how you participate in the health (or lack of health) you experience to appreciate the incredible healing journey on which you are embarking.
