Just as any fuel contaminated with undesirable matter causes unnecessary wear and slows an engine down, so the wrong food fed to my cells causes the same wear and sluggishness.
When we are told by a doctor to take pills, or stop eating a certain food, most of us adhere to the instructions. My doctors tell me, in no uncertain terms, that in order to avoid disease and so live a longer healthier life, I have to stop eating animal proteins and fats as well as manufactured foods, in fact anything that comes from the industrial food chain.
Given that even small amounts of the wrong food will clog the works, and given that it is too easy to slip into my old ways of eating, I am now fearful of breaking the ‘rules’. In truth I am fearful of succumbing to cancer, heart disease, diabetes and any one of the dozens of diseases I see around me and which may take me out prematurely.
I now thoroughly enjoy the good foods I eat and I thrive in the knowledge that I am lighter, fitter and very much healthier than I was previously. No medical intervention can offer me anything like the feelings of complete well-being that I enjoy.
