I SURE DIDN’T !!!
pardon me while i have a light bulb moment!
it turns out that
I !!! ME !!! MOI !!!
am the one who’s been living under a
my apologies to everyone.
like… people who live in glass houses . . .
you know the rest.
personal note here . . .
to those who’ve heard this through email form . . .
been crowing like a rooster i have!
you knew that would happen.
and to those of you . . . who whom know this already then . . .
you won’t even want to read this post.
it’s just more of the same wonderful news.
ALTHOUGH . . .
you might skim through it and check out the pictures.
very interesting! some new information!
CLOUSEAU IS ON THE CASE!
but if you choose not to . . . no hard feelings!
see you next time old bean.
happy trails and happy health!
for the rest of us!
when i got a bunch of other private emails from people
wanting to know what it’s all about . . .
too bad i don’t have a brass band playing.
didn’t expect to see me back so soon did ya? LOLOL!
you DO know don’t you . . . that i don’t REALLY laugh like a maniac all the time.
i use LOL when i find something amusing.
just wanted to clear that up. 😀
i’m back because this is going to be an important post. much more important than my just losing the
weight i want to. lost another pound by the way! right now that is just a side benefit.
it’s how GOOD i feel that’s making me want to spread the word about this!
i am so excited about my new “life style” … i HATE the word diet. i don’t believe in them.
diets are something you’re always starting. i intend to stay on this for the rest of my life.
the good doctor does say however … not to turn yourself into a pariah.
after you’ve regained your health … on special occasions and holidays … enjoy that forbidden delight.
but then immediately go back to your healthy lifestyle. you’re only hurting yourself if you don’t.
SO! i’m in it for the long haul old bean.
YES. that’s just how GOOD i feel. compared to how i felt. which was AWFUL.
i hid it well.
but i have to tell you. there were days here at the wren house… i couldn’t have left if i’d wanted to.
days when i felt so weak and unwell that if i had to run for my life … well …
i’d have had to use that famous line
“JUST GO! LEAVE ME! SAVE YOURSELF!”
i have debated different ways of approaching this post. try to make it funny? or at least entertaining?
not going there.
this is serious stuff. even a little scary.
the more i investigate it … and YES! i see such a difference already… i wanted to know more about it.
until i saw the program on PBS a little over a week ago … and then have since read the web site …
which is beautiful by the way. and since i have only recently bought the cook book that explains it too …
i literally had NO idea. oh. i had heard about some of it. but i paid it no attention.
it has MY ATTENTION NOW.
and i hope it gets yours.
because if you love yourself.
if you love your children and grandchildren. your whole family.
you’re going to want to know about this. and the importance of it.
i’m not normally a JUMP ON THE BAND WAGON type of person. i don’t go there.
but i feel SO GOOD! now … that i’m about ready to climb up on the roof and shout it!
heights bother me though. so instead … i’m shouting from this blog.
take a breath.
get you a cup or a glass of something.
the next part will be
as short as i can make it
and still get it all in!
ahhhh . . . .
the staff of life itself.
maybe once upon a time.
when the world was simpler. slower. the masses fewer.
IT WASN’T ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.
IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT NOW.
genetically modified organism
they’ve been busy at it for years now in this country.
europe and many other countries did it too for awhile.
but they’ve gotten smart
they have genetically altered every grain we eat.
wheat soybean corn barley rye oats rice quinoa . . . on and on.
they’re messing now with beets.
oh yes. they’ve messed up papaya too for pete’s sake.
they tried THIS with tomatoes . . .
injecting dna from fish into them
and created such extreme toxicity that
even THEY had to fall back.
but as long as the big bucks are to be made . . .
this all will continue.
MEET this gentleman.
i’m not a political person.
but even I find it rather daunting . . .
MR. MICHAEL R. TAYLOR
FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION
the good ole FDA
the head honcho.
he has an impressive list of credentials as long as your arm.
he also happens to be
VICE PRESIDENT FOR PUBLIC POLICY
we’re on our own folks.
because i’m afraid this is his message
it’s up to us.
in this country… and because we have exported our eating habits and products to the world …
diabetes II is at epidemic levels
obesity is now at incredible levels in every strata of our society. in this country and in europe.
dibilitating diseases are making our lives miserable.
we blame it on stress and our fast pace of life now and every other thing …
and what it is … IS WHAT WE EAT!
children are experiencing all forms of symptomatic problems … autism… attention deficit disorder…
we have names for all of them. when only one name would suffice. POISON.
we wouldn’t intentionally give our children poison. but that’s just what it is.
our children are literally being poisoned. by our food. and so are we.
i know that sounds fanatical and over-the-top. but the more i read about all this… the more i think it’s true.
if i can feel this better after only ONE WEEK!!! i can’t help but think about our children and their learning abilities.
not to mention . . .
their allergies … their growth … their future … full of weight gain … pain … and illness … OH MY!
it’s thanks to courageous medical doctors like DR. WILLIAM DAVIS whose lecture i watched on PBS a little over a week ago … and now have his cookbook … WHEAT BELLY COOKBOOK …
and this doctor as well … who are among those speaking out … CHALLENGING US TO LEARN …
TO KNOW WHAT WE’RE REALLY EATING!
and to change our lives for the better.
i was the processed food and frozen dinner
and i know if you have a family…
this perhaps can’t be done overnight like i did it.
you could do it for yourself.
and then when they all see how
YOU FEEL . . .
you might try it as a FAMILY experiment
so they don’t feel threatened.
make it fun.
let them compare and make notes on how they feel.
then maybe have a discussion about it.
not in a scary way . . . though it really IS pretty scary stuff.
doctor davis recommends doing it cold turkey.
it’s all explained in his beautiful
wheat belly diet blog
you’ll easily find it.
you can read this.
but i found that his cook book explains it fully too.
and can’t remember if i’ve mentioned it . . .
along with being a board certified practicing cardiologist . . .
he’s also a professionally trained CHEF!
he just like to cook too!
and to end . . .
here are some pictures.
and you know what they say about
how much pictures are worth.
i’m right at 1000 words here! according to my word count thingy.
apparently labeling is the big issue right now.
we NEED to know if our food is GMO. or GMA.
since they’re not going to stop what they’re doing.
right now … some companies have stopped using GMO products
like this one
and this one . . .
and i’m sure there are many others
we just have to educate ourselves . . .
and seek out those who are against it.
and support their efforts by buying their products.
doctor davis does allow butter.
i’m not allowed butter by my own cardio
i’m thinking of giving this a try.
and . . .
to end on an
well old bean!
are you still with me???
all i can say is . . .
i feel GREAT!
i’m never even that hungry anymore.
and for one who could live on popcorn and pizza alone . . .
is saying something!!!!
you might think you just can’t do this.
but i guarantee you . . .
when you finally feel
bad enough . . .
i think you might!
here’s to your GOOD health old bean!
by the way
YOU CAN EAT ALL THE BEANS YOU WANT!!!!
til soon old bean.
