Let's start talking about things that matter!!
From my book "Why American Women Are So Fat, Sick, Tired, And Angry And What I'm Doing About It".
We are in the most unusual midlife crisis of all time. Women aged 40-60 are struggling more than any other generation has.
We are divorced, raising children alone, money is tight, our Linkedin profiles are overstated, everyone is having more fun than we are on Facebook, we never have Instagram photos like the influencers, we’re lacking in sleep, many of us were the first in our family to go to college and we had higher expectations in life, and we’re smarter than where we are in life at present. We are disillusioned and frustrated.
We are all walks of life: lower, middle, and upper class, and every color of skin tone.
We have first world problems, and we’re not allowed to be unhappy, and many of us come from divorced parents, and our paradigm of life is that it’s unstable so we live in constant fear, anxiety, and anger that we’re not even aware of, and we try to eat our way out of it.
We are breaking down, and going to doctors for answers, and if you’re intuition isn’t alerting you, those doctors are just guessing at their diagnosis for you.
Do you know that doctors are the #3 killers of people in the United States and kill about 112,000 people each year by medical mistakes and medication overload?
You don’t see any protests for that do you!
Four billion prescriptions are written each year in the United States. That’s 12.5 per individual.
One in four women are on antidepressants and nine million of our children are on medications.
You think you were dealt a bad hand of health and that you’re not in control of what is happening to you and that is completely false.
So why the hell are American women so fat, sick, tired, and angry??
#1. Because they’re being lied to about low fat, non-fat, & sugar free processed foods. When they take the fat out, they put something in to make it taste good. They use sugar or fake sugar.
#2. These foods are not triggering the hormone that tells you that you are satisfied, so you are eating more and more.
#3. They’re living their lives hopped up on caffeine because they think caffeine gives them energy. Caffeine gives the ILLUSION of energy and later I’ll tell you how it’s burning out your adrenals.
#4. The result of that burnout is that they’re being diagnosed with thyroid and autoimmune disorders at epidemic levels just for BEING fat and tired.
#5. Because they are living the most stressful lives and that stress is causing them to choose a menu that they don’t know is causing chronic inflammation, fat, irritability, hormone imbalance, leaky gut, metabolic syndrome, thyroid failure, autoimmune disease, and this.... (See the vicious cycle!)
This is how my research began and I opened-up a can of worms.
