Buzz Words Don't Make Food Healthy


100% Organic Label

There are a lot of buzz words flying around when it comes to food these days. In a desperate attempt to screen our bodies from all the chemicals, preservatives, and falseness of the our available food sources, we jump on words that we assume mean safety and health. Sadly it’s usually not that simple. It shouldn’t be this hard to know what is safe to eat and what isn’t, but in this age, and in this country, it just is.

So let’s review a few. How about “Natural.” This is a very broad label according to the FDA. Basically as long as it doesn’t have added color, synthetic ingredients, or artificial flavors, it can be classified as natural. But there are a lot of loopholes companies can find and still use this term.

Then there's “Organic.” Essentially this means that animals are given no antibiotics or growth hormones (that would then transfer to our body once we eat them.) It also means plants that farmers grow didn’t involve pesticides or other harmful chemicals during their production. However, there are actually three levels of organic labeling. Unless the item is marked as 0 Organic, they could be simply p-• percent organic.

Understanding the true meaning behind your food labels, whether it’s Natural, Organic, Fat-Free, Gluten-Free or Vegan, is key towards getting the right stuff in and keeping the wrong stuff out. Especially if it’s a product you buy on a regular basis. What may start as just a little dose of something harmful can - over time - turn into a huge chunk that you have deposited into your body. Let us help get you educated and confident in your long-term eating plan!

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
