The Diet Industry - A Glorified Trap

Jan 15, 2008
In today's world there is medicine for everything, a diet plan for just about anyone, in fact we even have figured out diet plans for each body type and blood type. If our great-grandparents heard about this they would sit up in their graves. Society of today, women and men alike, are bombarded we things we should and should not do, and many feel terrible for even looking and lusting after food. What dilemma!

One of society's biggest disease problems comes from stress. Our minds are programmed and hypnotized with information about things we should and should not do. No wonder do we suffer from heart problems, strokes or even get a disease that didn't exist a couple of decades ago.

Why have we let this happen to us as a society? What's the benefit to us for the diet industry to have such a tight grip on us? And why have we willingly become their slaves?

Our bodies are meant to be healthy vehicles for us and food was meant to be here to nourish our bodies and for us to enjoy and savor it. Somehow over the past few decades, our bodies have become our enemies that are forever imperfect and need to be molded, reshaped and even go under the knife for corrections. I dare you to regain your freedom and gratitude for your body and to stop putting it through so much torture.

Here are 4 tips that can help:

1. Stop looking for answers "out there:" No matter what you're looking for, you already have all the answers. If you have been diagnosed with a disease, ask your Higher Self for the reasons. You manifested the disease, you allowed it to happen, ask your Higher Self why you manifested whatever it is you're experiencing and how to heal yourself. Remember that we are never given more than we can handle, and when it seems like we are given too much, there is always a way out. Seek the answer and you will find it.

2. Meditation and Breathing: Accessing our Higher Selves is done easiest through meditation and proper breathing techniques. Start with the full intention to breath deeply and fully when sitting silently. For most people this is very difficult because we have become human doings instead of human beings. Peace and happiness is found in states of being, not states of doing or having.

3. Use your body: Your body was designed to be moved around so you can accomplish whatever you have come to accomplish. In Europe the average person walks 2 miles a day, most of which is to and from work, going grocery shopping and so on. In the US we hardly walk 100 yards a day because most people have cars and are just plain too lazy and too busy otherwise. Use your body, it's why you have created it in the first place. If walking to and from work is too far or too inconvenient, get a gym membership. Get your body moving.

4. Love your body, all of it, and be kind to it: As a society we have come to learn to hate our bodies or at least parts of it. Imagine the leader of our country broadcasting on national television that he hated and disliked us - we would have instantaneous war amongst ourselves. And yet, isn't that what we are doing to the 70 trillion living cells that make up our body when we tell one part that we don't like it? How can you expect your body to work in peace and in cooperation with each member when you tell one part that it is defective in some way? Say nice things to your body for the parts that do work and the parts that you do like. Start somewhere, then expand as you start feeling the 70 trillion living cells suddenly work together to help you create a body that is truly at peace within its members. You will be amazed at the difference!
