Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

When we try to force ourselves to eliminate things we are eating that we know are dead foods, we set in motion the processes of resistance.  "I want it but I can't have it."  Your mind will only let you get away with believing that so long.  One day, when your resistance is low, you crack.  

But you know that sugar and processed food are so toxic they should have a skull and crossbones, right?  And food kills more people than alcohol and drugs combined.  (Think about it: heart disease, strokes, cancer, diabetes.)  This is serious stuff.  Eat like your life depends on it, because well, IT DOES.

We want to get MORE of the good food, the live food, the nutrient dense medicine your body is desperately craving.  The food that actually HEALS and renews.  So what's a raw foodie who lives in the Sodom and Gomorrah of fast food and processed food Stupor-markets (stole that from Shazzie, love it!) to do?  Temptation is everywhere, right?

The solution is right between your ears: change your thoughts to change your life.  Change your words to change your health.  Change your attitude and you can do anything, and what's more, you can enjoy every minute.  

"I want it (tempting toxic) but I can't have it."  Now turn that on it's head: I can have it, but I don't want it.  

Because it's true.  It's a free country.  You can have anything you want.  But why would you want food that will only make you sicker?  Fatter?  Sadder?  More toxic?  You don't.  

Don't try to eliminate the bad, simply edge it out with the good.  Then you lose your cravings and gently and naturally transition to MORE LIFE from more live foods with no drama or resistance.  

Resistance is futile.  Give in to happy, healthy and full of life.

It doesn’t surprise me that ‘Hungry for Change’ and (in my opinion) its predecessor ‘Food Matters’ inspires creativity, like your post.  I like the way these films approach complex issues from multi-perspectives and make difficult concepts easy to understand.  For example, I had a vague half-memory from school (decades ago) that sugar is a huge factor in weight control but didn’t quite know why until I heard Jason Vale’s simple explanation.


Of course I was also slightly mesmerised by Alejandro junger’s brilliant comments and piercing blue eyes – but that’s another story entirely...


Fabulous post Heather :-)

Hi Jane!  Watching Hungry for Change is what made me think of it! Such a great documentary!

Hi Heather,

I was interested to read your latest blog because it reminded me of some of the concepts/approaches raised in the ‘Hungry for Change’ video, which I’ve really enjoyed watching recently.  Have you managed to see it yet?  If not I think there is still a day’s free viewing left if you’ve have time :-)

AWESOME Heather - I have been listening to weight loss hypnosis CD's every night before I go to sleep now for about 6 weeks and it is AMAZING :)  My thoughts have changed without much angst to "I can have it, but I don't want it". I've never thought much about the whole hypnosis thing, but to be honest, it really has changed my life :)

Wishing you PEACE & JOY :)  YES - change your thoughts to change your life :)
