out...Here's the "formal" definition of the processed food
"The processed food industry is the transformation of livestock
and agricultural products into products for intermediate or
Transformation...hmmm. Apparently we needed this transformation?
Why--because Nature didn't do such a good job?
The price tag? Over 500 billion dollars. Every single year. And this is
just in the United States. Worldwide, this industry zooms WAY
past a trillion dollars.
And this doesn't
even include restaurants!
It doesn't include
transportation. Because the food we eat wasn't grown anywhere
near where we live.
This is just
It doesn't even
include the original cost of the food.
In any grocery
store here you'll see tens of thousands of boxed, bagged, jarred
and canned items begging for your attention with brightly
The food industry
routinely uses 2,000 different food additives in their processed
creations, but the total number of available additives has been
estimated at nearly 8,000!
vitamins, minerals, emulsifiers, buffers, artificial flavorings
and colorings, and enormous amounts of the two biggies--salt and
American eats nearly 150 pounds of food additives each YEAR!
This is broken down as follows:
* 130 pounds of
* 10-15 pounds of salt
* 5-10 pounds of "enriched" vitamins, flavors, preservatives and
Some people in the world don't even consume 150 pounds of FOOD
in a YEAR -- and yet the average American sucks down that much
in CHEMICALS AND ADDITIVES alone.
Now, there's one
big, glaring problem here and it's this:
Your body was
never meant to ingest 150 pounds of additives.
Or even 1 pound.
Your body doesn't
have a way to deal this these chemicals and it cannot metabolize
them. So they end up as acid wastes, taxing your liver,
accumulating in your blood, organs and tissues and making you
toxic, sick and fat.
So if you feel
bad, are taking medications and are overweight (be honest now),
then...a likely reason is that you are taking in a LOT of food
The truth is, the
human digestive system is designed to consume REAL food--fresh
fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean meats, poultry and
fish. That's what our bodies depend on for nourishment, proper
digestion, elimination of wastes and maintaining a good
Why do they
So now the obvious
question is: Why the heck does the food industry use all these
chemicals and additives, knowing full well that they make people
almighty food industry has six rationalizations for explaining away the fact that they knowingly make people
sick in the interest of profits.
Here they are--the
so-called reasons we "need" food processing:
1) To improve shelf life
The original idea
here was to help get food to more people and prevent waste and
spoilage. Early examples are vacuum packed canned vegetables and
But now we've
gotten to the point where things like breads are literally
"embalmed" with chemicals. Great for the manufacturer's bottom
line, but deadly to the consumer. (And they taste like sliced
2) To make food more available
originally good intention gone awry. It's great that food is
available to those that need it, but how much do people really
"need" a microwave meal, a bag of Doritos or a "Funfetti" cake
mix with confetti colored candies in it?
3) To increase nutritional value
This one is
hilarious. Oh, my sides hurt from laughing!
process out most or all of the naturally occurring nutrients in
the real foods that their products start out with. So they put
in synthetic vitamins and label the product "enriched."
But there are two
things wrong here.
For one, the
manufacturers don't add back in everything that was lost. For
example, vitamin B6, chromium and zinc are destroyed during the
processing of whole grains and flours, but they are NOT added
back into the final product.
And even if they
were, the synthetic nutrients are not the same as what was
provided by Nature. Nature doesn't just plop vitamins and
minerals into food. Rather, they are woven into the organic
structure of the plants. Food is whole, and its structure is
matched to how your digestive system utilizes it.
4) To improve
the flavor of foods
companies rely heavily on sugar, salt and artificial flavors to
make their mashed up, reformed concoctions tasty. Billions are
spent in labs where chemical flavorings are developed that taste
another thing happening here. These sugary, salty or
artificially flavored products are also very...addicting. How
convenient. These chemicals are actually drug-like in their
So the more you
gotta have that drug--I mean food--the more you buy and the
greater the stock value of the drug--I mean food--company.
5) To make
foods easier to prepare
squealed with glee as more and more women began working outside
of the home over the last several decades. That gave them a new
angle for marketing--convenience and speed. After working all
day, isn't it nice to pop dinner into the microwave and eat in 5
It doesn't matter
to them that those 5 minute dinners are nutritionally weak and
make you sick and overweight. The money is in their accounts
now, not yours.
6) To improve
This is the scary
one because the chemicals used to maintain a food's color or
prevent discoloration are often toxic substances.
fiasco with Red No. 2 dye being linked to cancer? Guess
what--it's still LEGAL in the US for orange growers to inject
Red No. 2 into orange rinds to achieve a uniform orange color.
And chickens are
treated with yellow dyes to keep their skin looking healthy.
knows what it needs
Regardless of what
rationalizations food manufacturers dream up to justify
jeopardizing your health, one fact remains:
If you want to be
disease-free, be at a normal body weight and live a long life,
you MUST eat real (not processed) foods. They are what your body
needs and your body knows the difference!
Now, eating real
foods is not as hard as it sounds.
It just takes a
bit of common sense and a little determination.
But you do have to
know what to do.
And with the
commercials yelling, "It's healthy!" and the medical community
saying "What you eat doesn't matter," (notice these industries
profit from you eating junk--one directly and one indirectly),
it's hard to know what to do.
That's why you
have me and my organization.
We untangle the
information for you.
We tell you
EXACTLY what to do, what to eat and when.
It's all in
the Great Taste No Pain health system.

to make real food meals that digest easily and efficiently. This

That means no
tummy troubles and quite likely smaller clothes.
It also means
having a LOT more energy and a cleaner you on the inside, so
you're a less attractive home for diseases and tumors to
Having a cleaner, alkaline body can also lead to great changes
- Lower blood

it's too late.

PPS: Nikki is finally free after 12 yrs of ulcerative colitis
Having followed your GTNP plan myself now for 18 months I am free of all symptoms of my
Ulcerative Colitis which started 12 years ago now.
was told by the medical profession that I would be on 12 pills a
day for the rest of my life 12 years ago and then put on
steroids 11 years ago and enemas 3 times a day.
finally met someone who put me onto a Neurolink founder who
helped me become well naturally and got me off all drugs. Now I
just take just Omega, Anti-oxidant and probiotics daily.
did not really believe that food affected my condition at all. I
was OK for 9 years but still had episodes of embarrassing times
of rushing to the toilet and not always making it.
found your plan 18 months ago through a work colleague and wow
what a difference. Within 3 weeks I was better and lost 12Kg- a
nice side effect.

loves the baking I do now.
enjoy eating now and am not so scared anymore of leaving my
house or going anywhere not near to a toilet.
Thanks for giving me my life back.
As we age, our
supply of digestive enzymes decreases. This is especially
true for people who eat lots of processed food and hard to
digest meals. Foods such as these require LOTS of enzymes to
break them down and over time your body's ability to produce
enough enzymes is diminished. Nothing can make you feel older
than gas, bloating, heartburn and constipation from ineffective
digestion and too few enzymes. Give your body the support it
needs and feel great inside with Digestizol Max natural digestive enzyme supplement. Learn more about Digestizol Max and all the ways it can help you
