Today’s thoughts come from something that is bothering me. I watch very little television and only positive television programs are turned on in my home. The 3 channels I do watch are:
I was exercising yesterday and I had seen the programs on the spiritual channel 3ABN so I tuned in to see what was happening in the business world. Something really disturbs me about the advertising of Nutrisystem and the claims they make. The claims are that you can lose weight and lower your blood sugar. My question is for how long with their system and approach. Is it a permanent change? My beliefs and education tend to think the Nutrisystem plan is a temporary solution. Do you want a permanent solution?
Whole Wellness Club offers a permanent solution. Dr. Chappell is our spokesperson and is a 39 year veteran Naturopathic Doctor. He recommends going to your local grocery store or farmers market and buying organic fruits and vegetables. If you cannot buy organic, buy regular produce and thoroughly wash the plants.
The permanent solution is that the plants are living with nutrients, minerals, enzymes, and vitamins. Your body will get the nutrition you need from the fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and legumes. You cannot get fat on a vegetarian diet if you eat the right amount of food. Your body will signal that you are full when it has the nutrients from the living food from plants.
Nutrisystem is teaching you a temporary fix with the same kind of unhealthy foods that the overweight person has been consuming. You cannot make a permanent change buying cookies, muffins, brownies, pasta, and cakes. The same amount of money you spend on one month of Nutrisystem will supply you with the best organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, and legumes for 2 months.
Studies have shown that a vegetarian diet lowers blood sugar, reverses heart disease, and will help you lose weight when incorporated with an exercise program that includes a 30 minute daily walk. Drinking one half your ideal body weight in ounces of pure water each day will also help you lose weight.
