So are you?
Think of your body as a highly tuned machine which is way more complex than the most advanced
engineering in a car. If you have a great car that you absolutely love, you are going to take particular
care to have it serviced regularly, to use the very best quality oil and petrol and keep it immaculate.
The food you eat is the fuel for your body, it gives energy and life and helps in the building of new cells
and maintaining all the systems of the body. Every part of your body is related and connected to every
other part. When one part is neglected or mistreated, the effect will flow through the whole body.
When you eat fresh fruit and vegetables, drink lots of water and have adequate high quality protein in
your diet, your body can function at its very highest level. Energy will be high and you will feel fantastic.
Your skin will glow and your bowels will work perfectly.
On the other hand, if you regularly eat high sugar, high caffeine, high fat and processed foods and don’t
drink water as well, you will be sluggish, bowels will not work properly and your skin will be dull and blemished.
If you smoke as well and drink soft drink and excessive amounts of alcohol you are adding even more toxins
into your body and it will reward you with a lack of energy, blotchy skin, poor sleep, constipation or diarrhoea
and depression and lack of motivation.
Think back to the car again – if you put dirty petrol in your car and don’t maintain it with regular servicing, it will
become unreliable and will eventually break down completely. This will also happen to your body. Lots of people
seem to get away with eating poorly and being inactive – but guess what? They’re not getting away with anything!
At some point, every single body on the planet will react to continued poor eating habits. The reaction will vary
from any number of skin conditions (such as eczema, psoriasis, rashes, itch), type 2 diabetes, arthritis, bowel cancer,
Every single thing that passes your lips must be processed by the body. The liver removes toxins from the blood
and stores them so they can’t circulate and do damage. The liver, magnificent, hardworking and forgiving organ
that it is, cannot keep doing this forever. When the liver is no longer coping with the avalanche of toxins coming
into the body, serious illness will result.
So, the answer to the question – ‘Are You Really What You Eat?’ is a resounding YES!
