There will have to be a huge shift attitude towards avoiding healthy food. As allison mentioned she would perhaps oversee a fundraising technique to bring healthy food in. The lady basically is saying " this is food they know & are comfortable with ". Now the health professionals should have at least as much nutrition knowledge as I do, so they KNOW they are NOT helping their patients. They have just become complacent in the battle for good health.
Admittedly sometimes it feels pointless. I have a son whom eats horribly & short of being a good example myself I'm not sure what more I can do. I think he see's that in order to be healthy all those foods he eats need to go. That
a) makes more work for people that are already to busy
b) leaves them wondering " what do I eat ? " & will it taste good ?
To much emphasis is put on " food " to make us feel good. When in reality it is needed for bodily functions, not as emotional gratification. A lot of chefs would be out of business if the public actually ate as they NEED to & not for the taste of heavily fatty, salty or sugary foods. None of which are needed for survival.
I used to think fitness was about fat or thin, healthy lung/ heart functions. The most important thing however is the blood, without healthy blood, muscles, organs can't function efficiently which brings it full circle to what is put in ones mouth. Of course with a hormone imbalanced metabolism, certain factors & adjustments would need to be attributed to the overall plan.
I hope to see this public swing to enlightenment in my day, but for now I'll be happy to help one client at a time & hope it becomes a lifestyle change
