I am always talking about the importance of the quality of the food we eat. The foundation of my 3D Living Program and Today’s the Day Plan is to focus your diet around the best quality, fresh, whole, nutrient-dense foods in a form as close to how God created them as possible.
I’ve had people tell me they were trying one diet or another and they were so excited to have “snacks” like frozen whipped topping to replace higher calorie ice cream. (For me, mere calories are not the critical factor!) Or they use drinks like Gatorade after working out or an “energy” drink in the afternoon. When I suggest there are better alternatives, invariably I hear that they are too expensive or they just don’t believe there’s any difference. Food is food, right?
Well, I ran across this video and it’s a startling illustration of the difference between real food and some of the fake foods out there. You may not think there is a difference, but your body, which was intelligently created by God Himself, knows the difference! Your body recognizes real foods and knows how to nourish you with them. When you eat or drink things that contain chemicals and additives, your body treats them like the toxins they are.
So, I’m asking you – can you tell the difference in how you feel when you nourish yourself with real foods as opposed to foods loaded with additives and chemicals?
