Most people have a list of things they are used to eating… A, B, C, D, & E. They also believe these things add up to a pretty decent diet. They stick with them because they like their taste, and because they are familiar and comfortable.
And then someone comes along and tells them “UH OH!! You can’t be eating D or E! They’re NOT GOOD FOR YOU!!”.
Then they’re left with only A, B, & C wondering what to do now. They know they need to eat other things to complete their diet again, but… WHAT?
…as if there weren’t THOUSANDS of other kinds of food and food combinations out there that they could try.
What did the caveman do when the herd of – whatever – got away from him? Did he not eat? Possibly, but he sure looked for other food to survive.
Think about the grocery store.
Thousands of choices.
All for our convenience.
Isn’t it amazing? Endless healthy options at the grocery store, and people are dying of malnutrition.
Aren’t most major diseases mostly the result of malnutrition? Heart disease, most cancers, obesity, and diabetes ALL can usually be prevented and even reversed through proper diet and exercise.
According to the CDC, 29% of all deaths in the U.S. were due to heart disease.
The Discovery Health website lays out how the American Heart Association recommends we eat to prevent heart disease, as well as other diseases, including obesity.

We’re not malnourished because we don’t have access to extremely healthy food. We absolutely do.
If you’re reading this, odds are you have a market or store within 5 minutes of you that has a produce department, which can provide almost every nutrient your body needs to thrive.
Most people are malnourished and living as satiated fat slobs or dying of preventable diseases because we’re too stupid to figure out how too cook some vegetables? We’re too stubborn to give up our favorite tasting foods, and ignore the possibility that among the THOUSANDS of other food options that there could be something that tastes even better?
