"Eat your fruits and vegetables"

Do we sound like your mother? Well, she was right. VERY right. Studies are showing that the dramatic decline in our health as a planet is not so much about the bad food we are eating, it’s about not getting enough of the good!1

“A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar, which can help keep appetite in check.”2

You may feel more energy from the increase in vitamins and minerals from the fruits and veg. Your sweet and carb cravings may decrease. You may feel lighter as you fill the need for sweets with fruit. You may notice a happier digestive tract as the full effect of the fiber is kicking in!
As your desire for carbs and sweets dies down, you’ll notice some weight loss. Have you added more exercise to your routine? You’ll be looking and feeling better by now. You may notice your skin is clearer.
Your biomarkers will see great improvements particularly with the lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory markers, blood sugar regulation, and cholesterol markers as well.
