It is that your body is not being properly nourished or fuelled.
It is clear that we’re in the midst of an absolutely catastrophic collapse in health. Just look around you. The US population is rocketing towards 50% obesity by 2030 (that's so overweight as to be a clinical health risk).
In addition, in many countries, half of everyone born after 1960 are now being told we should expect to get cancer in our lifetimes.
Across the board, chronic disease is accelerating out of control.
None of that should come as a surprise, as the clear evidence is all around us.
What may surprise you to learn is that this is a very recent phenomenon! In fact, this is the first time in human history when the majority of us will die from preventable chronic conditions instead of communicable diseases. (Some are even saying the situation is so bad that this generation could also be the first to fail to outlive its parents!)
Cancer, diabetes, and even heart disease (now the biggest single cause of death) were all very rare just 200 years ago.
The list below summarises all causes of death in the town of Boston, MA, in the year 1811, with just 5/942 deaths attributed to cancer (0.53%) and exactly zero deaths from heart attacks. (Even if we reassigned every case of "Sudden death (25x)" as heart disease, that would still only account for under 3% of deaths.)
So what happened in the past two centuries to cause such a dramatic shift in mortality?
Despite all the technological shifts in the past 200 years, the biggest change to affect the human condition in that period is the food we eat.
The basic truth is that, unlike the early 1800s, what we are being told to eat today, and which makes up the majority of most people’s diet, is not food at all, but artificial "food-like products".
This industrially-produced "feed" simply lacks the nutrients and the fuel your body needs, and will set you on a path to obesity and sickness.
And it isn't just those sweet treats that most people would admit are unhealthy, it includes most of the food we are told is healthy!
The current official advice on "healthy eating" is in fact mainly sponsored by the Big Food industry, which creates these new, fake, "food-like products" out of cheap row crops that deliver minimal nutritional value.
The vast majority (70%) of what Americans eat today is hyper-processed food made up primarily of just five industrially-produced, industrially-harvested, and industrially-processed crops: wheat, corn, sugar, soy, and the so-called "vegetable oils". These are practically devoid of the nutrients your body needs and, in many ways, are downright toxic.
"How are you supposed to get 100% of the nutrition you need
from just 30% of your plate?"
The U.S. introduced its current "healthy eating" guidelines in 1980. With that in mind, it is interesting to see the growth in obesity over the past few decades.
Do you notice a drastic change around the year 1980??
Make no mistake... Following the current official guidelines is actually driving the obesity epidemic, delivering insufficient nutrition that in turn leads to chronic sickness.
What does all this mean for you and your loved ones?
Quite simply, it means that only YOU can change the situation. You cannot afford to wait for the official advice to tell you the truth about how to be healthy… it cannot, for the simple reason that the corporations run everything, and corporations cannot take steps that harm their own profits!
You are going to have to find out for yourself.
If you do what you’re told and follow the advice, you are destined to be just another statistic.
Expect declining health, high medical bills, popping more and more pharmaceuticals every day into old age, with a decreased quality and enjoyment of life.
If that isn’t the way you see your life going, there are two things you need to do:
First, you must re-educate yourself about food. Do not underestimate the power that a lifetime of industry-sponsored propaganda can hold over your thinking and how that directs your choices.
Second, you are going to need to retrain your habits, which have also taken decades to form.
That is exactly what The Big Fat Challenge will help you to achieve!
