When almost every item in the canteen of a kids footy game has proven links to obesity, heart disease, cancer or diabetes, when do we question the example we are setting?
When the only real 'food' (something that nourishes) is a side of onion, soaked in saturated fat, when do we suggest that tradition and habit cannot take priority over the health of the next generation?
When does it stop becoming a treat and start becoming a death sentence?
Sickness and ill-health are NOT normal. They are inextricably linked with a lack of real food and an over-consumption of edible non-foods. When do we break the chain of passing on bad information and bad habits to the next generation?
We are the example. Which one do we want to set?
LIKE if you agree. SHARE this if you want change. COMMENT with foods you'd like to see that would nourish your child instead of poison them.
"Today our lab results and BP numbers are fantastic, and our doctors are impressed with all the healthy lifestyle changes we have made. I have become a firm believer that each of us has the ability to prevent certain diseases and disorders by the foods that we eat."
"By the time I was 30 I had developed a severe fast food addiction and weighed 300 pounds. I basically never left my apartment except to go get fast food or drugs. I was never suicidal, but I also didn’t care about living anymore."
Please join us for the second annual Run MND! All money raised will be donated to the MND Association of New South Wales (MND NSW) and the MND Research Institute of Australia (MNDRIA).
We will be running the Sutherland 2 Surf route, but ending at Perryman Square (adjacent to Dunningham Park) in Cronulla. The total distance is 10 km. Feel free to run all or part of the course. If you'd like to run 5 km, the halfway point is at the Sutherland Hospital (at the corner of Kareena Rd and The Kingsway). Perhaps running ain’t your thing? No worries, choose your distance take some friends and walk. Or simply meet us at the finish line and cheer us in!
Like last year, after we have finished the run we will hit Northies. Please join us for a drink and lunch (at your own expense). All welcome, including family and friends (runners/walkers/spectators).
All we ask is for a donation to participate and we encourage you to have your friends and family sponsor you. Please click on the everydayhero account link to donate! You will receive a receipt for tax purposes. The money raised will be split 50/50 between MND NSW and the MNDRIA. The more money we raise, the more individuals and families living with MND will be supported and the closer we will get to finding the cause and a cure for MND.
Thank you -
The Run MND Team.
You've heard of the 'healthy eating pyramid', well here's a 'healthy behaviours' pyramid.
You need to nail the bottom layer before the top layers become effective. There's little benefit to working on calorie counting and advanced goals if you haven't got your base of regular, maintainable exercise and a diet of fresh unprocessed foods. ... See MoreSee Less
If you think of body change as a pyramid, here’s what it should look like. Notice: It’s the opposite of what you might expect.
All the “expert stuff” — adjusting macronutrients, advanced nutrition strategies, etc. — is at the top. You might not ever even get to it. It’s a “nice to have”.
The base of the pyramid — your foundation — is what surrounds you: Your social environment and culture, Your kitchen, Your grocery habits, Your day-to-day routine, Your peeps.
In general, when it comes to engineering healthy eating, here’s the golden rule:
* Make healthy behaviors convenient.
* Make other behaviors less convenient.
