Myth: All young people have perfect bodies

Some people in their 40’s and 50’s think young people are healthy because of youth alone.

I have seen it before. People start aging, they feel lower back pain, their digestive systems break down, and they blame it all on age. With the knowledge I have about natural health, I act as a resource for them, yet they seem to think that I’m not living the health lifestyle day in and day out.

The way we treat our bodies now will be a good predictor of how our bodies treat us in the future.

Over the weekend, I saw a bunch of my former college buddies for a birthday party and they asked me about the health of coca-cola. I made sure not to judge or patronize, but research has shown that coca-cola is basically brain control. A highly concentrated source of sugar like soda simply does not exist in nature, yet we have so many people drinking coca-cola every single day.

Add a few beers on top of that coca-cola, and you’re setting yourself up for some serious inflammatory problems down the line. That’s when we get back to the 50 year old trucker who has eaten more fast food that could even be counted. His knees hurt and any food he consumes will bloat him up like a hot air balloon.

He looks at me and says, “you don’t need any of these products, you’re too young, you can eat anything.”

You’re right, I can eat anything. But since I value my health, my longevity, and a lean physique, I eat cleaner than the language on sesame street. Processed foods are strongly avoided. Restaurants are only on occasion. And I constantly plan meals for the next day or week.

I don’t need any credit for it. You just need to realize that everything you do to your body is going to affect you in some way. No matter how old you are.
