Everything you eat has the ability to help heal your body, or to poison it. This may sound strong, but certain processed foods may contain toxins that are harmful to the body.  Avoiding processed foods will also help decrease your intake of GMOs.  A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same. In the US, the majority of the corn, soybean, cotton, and canola crops are now genetically modified, and one or more of these can be found in nearly every processed food. Testing that has been done in the past has shown GMOs can increase food toxicity, allergy susceptibility, immune suppression, resistance to antibiotics, and the incidence of cancer but testing has been stopped for many reasons to suppress the national media “frenzy” until there is a national (or military) policy regarding food in US and subsequent food shortages that may take place if GMO foods/plants were stopped.  

 

Dairy and wheat are processed differently by everyone, so it's important to educate yourself on these topics and how they personally affect you. Some people process these food items very well and have no side effects, while other people have slight to severe autoimmune reactions. You could start with a Paleo diet as your base template and add to it based on your experiences, not what you read by others.

 

Food in our society goes far beyond fueling the body, so it is not always such a simple choice. We go out to dinner, and most social events have food. The key is achieving balance so you get the results you want, but can also function as a normal person and enjoy life.

 

  • Create a meal plan and shop ahead for the week.

  • Have healthy snacks readily available that you enjoy.

  • Plan ahead for dinner out by helping to pick the place you’re eating and looking at the menu ahead of time.
