So many of us have lost the ability to eat intuitively. 😔 Did you know that our stomachs have receptors that indicate to us when we're hungry, and when we're full? Our bodies want to be working with us. . But when we eat meat, dairy, eggs, oils, and other high-calorie processed foods it becomes almost impossible to "feel" when we're full. We'd have to eat WAY more calories than we need to activate those tummy stretch receptors. . Eating plant-based whole foods that are rich in fiber can change that. We can once again start to tune into our bodies and sense when we are hungry, when we need to eat more food, and when we're full (without loading up on way too many calories). We can stop counting calories and start to eat intuitively. . This graphic helps explain why so many people tend to fall to their "natural" weight when they start eating plant-based. You'll often see people eating plant-based lose weight even though they are eating more food than before because even though they’re eating more volume, they’re eating far fewer calories. . So, friends, let's work with our bodies and fill our bellies with healthy, nutrient-rich whole foods! - @MichelleCehn 👩🏼🌾. .

Our food system is broken. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is causing millions to suffer from diet-related health issues like #heartdisease, type 2 #diabetes, high blood pressure, high #cholesterol, chronic pain, lethargy, and even #cancer. . 24-year-old Raul was on this path. Concerned about his weight and worried that he may already have diabetes (like his mom), he felt called to make a change. . He knew his prayers had been answered when he saw our ad seeking someone willing to eat a whole foods plant-based diet for 7 days as we document their journey. . Witness Raul's transformation at 7DaysDoc.com (link in my profile) ... you won't believe how just 7 days of plant-based eating impacted his life!
