It has been the term of the last decade, hasn’t it? Obesity seems to have spread like wildfire through our so-called civilisation. Many people have been caught up by the epidemic and have burned themselves in ways they probably never imaged could or would happen.
So what is obesity? The word ‘obesity’ can never truly represent the state of the body and mind of people who are obese. Obesity is not something static - it is a process of somebody’s thinking and behaviour. The label ‘obesity’ tells us very little as you will read below.
According to Professor John Funder, Obesity Australia:
“Obesity is commonly (and imperfectly) defined on the basis of body mass index, or BMI. The BMI is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by their height in metres squared. If a girl was 150 cm (i.e. 1.5 metres) tall, and weighed 45 kilograms, her BMI would be 45 divided by 1.5x1.5 – a value of 20, within what has been defined as ‘normal’ – a BMI of 18-25. Values between 25 and 30 are classed as overweight, and above 30 as obese. What obesity really is means too much fat as a proportion of body weight, and in the wrong places.”
According to the World Health Organisation:
"Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health. A crude population measure of obesity is the body mass index (BMI), a person’s weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of his or her height (in metres). A person with a BMI of 30 or more is generally considered obese. A person with a BMI equal to or more than 25 is considered overweight.”
When you read the above, can you make any sense out of it? Why doesn’t it make sense? I believe that obesity is not listening to your own innate wisdom. Obesity is not eating up to 80% capacity with each meal. Obesity is not eating in-season, plant based whole foods. Obesity is not drinking plenty of Structured Water during the day. Obesity is not doing a minimum of 1 hour of exercise a day.
It would be too simple wouldn’t it, to fix obesity if this was the solution? There would be no textbooks to write, no lectures to give, no professors, scholars, academics, doctors and so-called health practitioners required.
But that would be an outrage wouldn’t it? Because the society we participate in and have created, is designed to worship the intellect and the ‘non-sense’ information. It is designed to treat the confused, ill and diseased and we do this proudly in the name of progress, evolution and let’s not forget, profit.
The real question is how did we let it get this far? It perhaps all started when we stopped being accountable and responsible for our thinking and behaviours. When we started to buy into third party information that we eagerly swallowed so we did not have to think and sense ourselves.
Now people are drowning in oceans of make believe that is projected by individuals and groups of people whose intentions are for you to be dependent on their so-called wisdom and intellectual rubbish. Filling your head with their story telling and non-verifiable information to foster the opposite of health for each person on earth.
We should know by now that the most valuable real estate on earth is your mind and body. We, the people, have handed over the keys to our brain and soul. We invited the interlopers and imposters to come into our lives and dictate how we should think and behave.
How else can the world be experiencing this incredible obesity epidemic? Why don’t we blame the opportunist and corrupt minds that are hungry for money, fame and power? When they are willing to spread a lot of non-sense information into world. It is in their best interests for all people on earth to be confused about how to thrive on food that promotes health and prevents obesity, illness and disease (not ours).
You would think that these clever academics would have figured it out by now. But instead, this obesity wildfire is spreading so quickly that it is affecting millions of people, including children, all across the world. But the reality is, that the more confused people are, the better it is for these ‘health professionals’. The more misleading and false information that is made up, the less easily people will find their way back to health.
The reality is that obesity is nothing mysterious and does not require in depth studies to solve. Just common sense. Through eating what nature provides us in plant based whole food form. Through drinking structured water like nature intended and to do some daily exercise. You can begin by tapping into your innate wisdom for answers – this is the solution.
Dr Michael Greger M.D. FACLM wrote on August 1st, 2017:
Despite the most widely accepted and well-established chronic disease practice guidelines uniformly calling for lifestyle change as the first line of therapy, doctors often don’t follow these recommendations. Lifestyle interventions are not only safer and cheaper but often more effective in reducing heart disease and failure, hypertension, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and deaths from all causes than nearly any other medical intervention.
“Some useful lessons may come from the war on tobacco,” Dr. Neal Barnard wrote in the American Medical Association’s ethics journal. When he stopped smoking himself in the 1980s, the lung cancer death rate was peaking in the United States. As the prevalence of smoking dropped, so have lung cancer rates. No longer were doctors telling patients to “[g]ive your throat a vacation” by smoking a fresh cigarette. Doctors realized they were “more effective at counselling patients to quit smoking if they no longer had tobacco stains on their own fingers.” “In other words, doctors went from being bystanders—or even enablers—to leading the fight against smoking.” And today, says Dr. Barnard, “Plant-based diets are the nutritional equivalent of quitting smoking.”
“If we were to gather the world’s top nutrition scientists and experts (free from food industry influence),” read one journal editorial, “there would be very little debate about the essential properties of good nutrition. Unfortunately, most doctors are nutritionally illiterate. And worse, they don’t know how to use the most powerful medicine available to them: food.”
So while the medical, scientific and corporate world are pretending to focus on solving the symptoms and causes of the diabetes epidemic, I want to point people’s attention in a direction that creates real solutions, fast.
The solution is so easy. When you eat in-season Plant Based Whole Foods (PBWF’s), detox your body, hydrate yourself with Structured Water and do a minimum of 1 hour of exercise a day, your body will start to be healthy again -very quickly.
You will start to lose weight, your body will start to off-load toxins, your immune system will be able to do its job again and your state of mind will start to improve. You will start to trust yourself, build confidence and feel happier when the self-harm stops.
The tricky part for a lot of people is how to make the transition to a PBWF way of life. I have mentioned in my previous blogs that having a mentor who has achieved it successfully is a very useful tool. Ideally you will want to work with, and get support from, somebody who has been eating and thriving on a PBWF diet for a number of years (and can inspire, guide and mentor you).
If I want to know how to improve my business, then I want to be mentored and coached by somebody who has built a successful business themselves. Someone who has a proven track record helping others to succeed!
If I want to know how to build wealth through investing in property, then I want to work with somebody who has a proven strategy on how to build wealth through investing in property that works.
If I want to know how to hydrate my body in the most effective and efficient way, I speak to somebody who is specialised in water and hydration. Who has objectively studied all the different water technologies that are out there today and makes choices based on wisdom!
What I am saying is, most likely the people who have succeeded in their respective fields have adopted the right kind of thinking and know the right behaviours to achieve these results. One can assume that they would be able to share effective strategies and their highly honed set of skills. The same logic applies with transitioning to plant based whole foods.
Imagine what could happen if we stop listening to the non-sense, take full accountability and responsibility and start LIVING WITH SENSE?
