Trying to teach an old dog new tricks is tough, as we know. You may have a 30% better chance of getting through with humans to help them change — maybe!
That depends on how far they’ve let themselves go.
I adore this excerpt from the song, Hotel California, by The Eagles:
“And in the master’s chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can’t kill the beast.”
There are a few possible meanings in that verse:
1 — The masters (people in charge) gather for their feast, while the ordinary folk doesn’t.
2 — They go for their opulent dinner but still can’t satisfy themselves.
3 — They can’t let go of controlling others?
I don’t know if I’m right — that’s how I interpret it, at least.
Especially when they go on to say:
“You can check out anytime, but you can never leave!” The Eagles
Explaining real food, how to eat to live healthily, maybe lose some weight and become fit, and happy feels just like that to me at times
You can do it over and over again, like a broken record, and show as much personal or scientific evidence as you want.
Then they say:
“That’s great, but you must understand our people have eaten rice and corn for multiple generations, so that’s our culture and how we eat.”
My futile reply is always the same:
“I know, I know that all too well. But does that make eating grains, everything made from it, plus sugar, alright?
Please take a look around. Most people are fat and look unhealthy. Also, over 700 million suffer from diabetes caused by this kind of food.
Many of those millions die early because they become obese, their heart stops ticking, or they stroke out.
It can happen to the young, middle-aged, and older people at any time.
Is that a good reality to live with?”
Sure, you, like most, can ignore it until it happens to you or your loved ones. But then, it’s too late.
My monologue sinks in at the moment as I see their faces drop and anxiety creep in.
I do not want to cause anxiety.
What I do want is to spread the word as much as I can that grains, everything made from them, and sugar are killing us!
The next day, I see the same person to whom I painfully explained how the body responds to food, shoveling a big rice or noodle bowl down their throats — again.
So, I ask:
“Did you not understand or learn anything I explained yesterday? I am not suggesting or pushing you to completely give up your rice, noodles, and sugar.
All I am doing is begging you to cut it back by a good 50%.
If you do, you may have a 50% better chance of not becoming diabetic, obese, and suffering an early death.”
Please think about that for a moment too.
I understand the different cultures, eating habits, and the deliciously addictive foods.
But I also know your beloved meals are cooked and soaked in toxic seed oils that cause cancer and internal inflammation and can make you very sick!
Please — think about that one too!
Pro Tip: Please try to cook and eat more at home, using real butter, animal meats, seafood, and some healthy veggies too.
You’ll be better off that way!
