Stop the chemical shit storm in our food.
As a successful personal trainer and health coach I see people consuming way to much processed food full of chemicals
When I begin replacing processed, chemical laden foods with clean, real food my clients get amazing results. This is not an easy process for many people as they are addicted to flavour enhancers and other food additives that food scientists add to food for that exact purpose. They are paid to keep you coming back for more of that very brief, feel good sensation. Clients can go through anything from withdrawal headaches, cravings and mood swings to fatigue. Adding in clean real food like vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, lean proteins etc. can also taste bland compared to highly flavoured processed food because we have no idea what real food tastes like any more. It takes time to regain the taste for these foods and they also can cause some discomfort as the detox process gets under way. Once you do develop at taste for real food then processed food seems very overwhelming to the taste buds. I'm not a scientist but I believe personally that these chemicals mess with everything from our digestive system to our hormone balances causing premature ageing and illness. Stop the chemical shit storm that is replacing good healthy food.
