Is the Standard American Diet killing us one bite at a time? The modern form of humans have roamed this planet for 200,000 years, yet in the past 100, we have taken a turn so sharp in our health and wellness that no one could've predicted our current state of sickness. About 2/3 of the population is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past three decades. Approximately 80% of adults in our society will be diagnosed with at least one preventable lifestyle disease including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and stroke. What's even more disturbing is the increased prevalence of these "adult" lifestyle diseases in children.
 
So what the heck is going on? What has changed in the past century that has turned modern humans into the sickest species on the planet? Is it our genes? Is it our lifestyle? Well, it certainly cannot be our genes. The human genome has changed less than 0.02% in 40,000 years. On the other hand, our modern diet couldn't be more different from that eaten by our early ancestors. Through most of our time on this planet, the human species has eaten an alkaline diet, high in fiber, full of micronutrients and probiotics and free from toxic additives and processed foods. Our modern diet, full of pro-inflammatory foods and chemicals, bears little resemblance to anything our species has ever been exposed to and the results have been disastrous!  A diet high in sugar, dairy and grains can not only contribute to the lifestyle diseases mentioned above, but it can also be the culprit in other less definable conditions like chronic fatigue, poor digestion, inability to lose weight, allergies, fertility issues, joint pain, and skin conditions.
 
So what can we do about it? Join us on Saturday, January 9th, at our Atco office, at 11:30am. We will be working together through a 3 week diet reboot, where we eliminate all of the junk so we can regain control of our metabolism, energy levels, and health. The cost of the program is $25.  Please call 856-767-8800 to register.
