'You are what you eat'
It's expected that by 2030 there will be 65 million more obese adults in the US. This means the loss of over 20 million years of life and medical costs of $48–66 billion per year 1. Obesity is just the tip of the iceberg. Mental health issues, IBS, headaches... many physical ailments have been increasing in number and severity over the last few decades 2, 3, 4 .
Many of us aren't putting the right things in our body.
We have been done a disservice by large processed food corporations: obesogenic chemicals, inflammatory nutrients, and added sugars. A lack of awareness of legitimate nutritional research has resulted in misconceptions about what is and isn't healthy, dietary fads that promote suffering and not wellbeing, and missed opportunities to use foods to help optimize health and fix ailments. Research shows that diet either aggravates or alleviates most ailments even those that don't seem connected to diet. Depression, for example, doesn't seem to be connected to foods, and, yet, diet has been used successfully to treat major depression 5. Depression is associated with brain inflammation 6, 7 and inflammation is heavily influenced by diet 8.
