As I was sitting at a red light at a busy intersection yesterday, I saw a car traveling at an unsafe speed cut someone off, then it made a quick right turn on a dime.
Into the McDonald’s drive-thru entrance.
Too bad for him that the line was pretty long, so his quick pursuit of a Big Mac was about to come to a screeching halt.
I don’t care where you live or what time of day it is—there is ALWAYS a sea of cars in the drive-thru lines of fast food restaurants including McDonalds, Wendy’s, and Burger King. And here in Florida, Chick-fil-A blows them all away—they even need 2 lanes of drive-thru service!
It confounds me when I see this, especially because processed and fast foods are arguably the most widespread and significant cause of early death in our existence!
But they don’t kill you right away! Instead it starts with you becoming….
Overfed and undernourished
One of the biggest atrocities of fast foods (and other processed/junk foods) is the fact that they contain very few usable nutrients and as such, don’t properly nourish you.
This creates the phenomenon of being overfed and undernourished.
It goes like this:
The human body’s innate hunger signals are triggered by a physical need for nutrients. Your body is very smart and it knows when it needs nutrients to create energy, make all your systems work like they should, and, well, keep you alive.
But since fast foods don’t properly nourish you, after eating them your body eventually realizes it didn’t get the nutrients it needed, so it makes you hungry again!
And if you turn around and eat more fast/junk foods, this creates a vicious cycle where you keep eating more and more and more, but your body is never satisfied.
Overfed and undernourished.
Oh, and packing on the pounds while you’re at it.
Plus fast foods usually contain one or more of what are called the “bliss-inducing” ingredients—sugar, salt and fat—and they are downright addictive.
Particularly sugar—it’s been shown to be more addictive than cocaine!
A fast track to an early grave
Here are the various ways that fast/junk food leads you by the hand to an early grave.
First of all, the refined carbohydrates (including sugar, high fructose corn syrup and grains) in these foods trigger inflammation and are a leading contributing factor in heart disease and cancer (our top 2 killers), insulin resistance, Type 2 diabetes, poor immune function, leaky gut, and Alzheimer’s.
Plus as I mentioned above, fast foods lead to obesity which exponentially increases your risk of disease and is a major COVID co-morbid factor.
Salt is a culprit too. In addition to making the food addictive, the salt in fast foods can stir up hypertension. Moreover, studies have shown an explosive increase in stomach cancer risk for people who have H. pylori (the bacteria that causes most ulcers) and eat a high salt diet (especially fast foods).
The fats used in frying fast foods are typically highly processed vegetable oils which can light fires of inflammation throughout your body.
Lastly, fast foods are extremely hard for your body to break down. This can lead to heartburn, gas, bloating and constipation, reduced enzyme levels, impaired nutrient absorption, inadequate elimination of wastes, an acidic pH and eventually chronic diseases like cancer.
Give your body what it needs to live!
Your body was designed to eat wholesome real foods--fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, eggs, nuts and seeds, good fats (like real butter, coconut oil and olive oil) and meats, poultry and fish. That's what it depends on for nourishment, sound digestion and elimination of wastes.
Now, having a diet of healthy real foods is not as boring or hard as it sounds--it just takes a bit of common sense and a little effort on your part.
But you do have to know what to do…and this is where I can help you with the Great Taste No Pain health system.
Great Taste No Pain will show you how to pair together foods in your meals to promote better digestion and nutrient absorption.
When your digestion is carried out like it should be, that can mean fewer digestive problems like gas, bloating, constipation and heartburn.
Plus it can be a snap to lose weight because you’ll be better nourished and stay full longer!
And the recipe section features many scrumptious dishes made from real food ingredients that taste FAR better than any fast food!
Pamper your gut microbiome too
If you've been a fast food fanatic for a while, chances are excellent your gut microbiome might not be as balanced as it should be.
Fast foods (especially the refined carbs) can become nourishment for the harmful bacteria and yeasts in the intestinal tract, so they can thrive and challenge your beneficial bacteria.
Not only can this worsen gas, bloating and constipation, but your immune system is weakened too (since 80 percent of your immune cells reside in your gut).
In addition to a healthy diet of real foods (like I mentioned above) that nourishes your gut, it’s crucial to rebuild your supply of helpful bacteria, as well as counteract any harmful yeasts that may have been allowed to proliferate. (Note: If you’re prone to vaginal yeast infections or UTIs, this is practically a given.)
Super Shield's 13 strains of potent, effective friendly bacteria are up to the task of rebuilding your microbiome—helping to support your intestinal walls, repopulate your supply of helpful bacteria, encourage regular BMs and support your immune system!
And Optimal Yeast Support Blend can safely and naturally counteract any existing yeast overgrowth you may have, and help put an end to those infections and UTIs.
Feed your body the delicious REAL food it is meant to have, and help it recover from any past fast food harm, and I’m sure it will thank you handsomely for years to come!
To your health,
