Eating Ourselves To Death

by Steve Wagner

Guilty as charged. I used to be one of those very same people. As a teenager, I lived on Burger King, Italian hot dogs, pizza, chocolate and soda. I was able to get away with it for a while but eventually, as I got older, yet no smarter, it started to catch up with me. As a result, I paid for my terrible eating habits in spades. Fortunately, I am now on the road to good health. But that's another story. This one is about how we as a nation our eating ourselves right into the grave.

The truth is, this article may come as no surprise to you. After all, you can't turn on the TV without seeing an ad for a fast food restaurant, a frozen TV dinner, some new soft drink, the latest chocolate delight or whatever the flavor of the day is. When was the last time you actually saw an ad for something healthy? It doesn't happen often because the truth is, the things that are good for us just don't taste as good as the junk we put in our bodies each day. Ever wonder why though? There's a reason for it.

Right out of the womb we are fed a diet of foods high in sugar. Go on, look at the labels of the popular baby foods of today. They're loaded with sugar. Quite simply, if we brought up our children from the start to eat foods that are natural, we wouldn't be living off of most of the garbage we put in our bodies. And the proof is with my own experience.

Because I got very ill from the way I used to eat, for the longest time I had to be put on a very strict diet or risk dying. Well, when I finally got myself back on my feet, I went to a party and decided to try just a small piece of cake. I couldn't eat it. It was too sweet for me. My body and my taste buds had gotten used to eating things without sugar. To this day I can no longer eat anything that is sweet.

The point is, we can train our bodies to reject foods that are bad for us even before they get past our taste buds. The problem with doing this is it isn't easy. As a result, we constantly give in to temptation and eat the way we're used to eating until we're either terribly overweight, ill or both. Not everybody who is ill is overweight. But almost everyone who is overweight develops some kind of health problem down the road.

Well, it doesn't have to be that way. Tom Venuto, a world famous fitness expert, has put together a book called "Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle" that, if you are overweight, is a must read. He guarantees that if you follow his program, not only will you no longer be overweight but you'll be in the best shape of your life. You at least owe it to yourself to check out his site on our products page.
