What I took away from this video, and what I hope you take away, is that you are in an environment that makes it difficult to make the healthy choice. This goes beyond the sugar that is mentioned in the video. We live in an environment that generally encourages and entices us to make choices that make others rich while we get unhealthy and unhappy. Then we are sold the ‘cure’ for our unhappiness and ill-health.
This is not a conspiracy theory but simply fact. While the speaker in the video advocates for public action, I have always been an advocate for personal responsibility and education. You are powerful! You can make the healthy choice whether it is opting for a whole food instead of something manufactured in a food factory or deciding to take a walk outside instead of watching TV.
What I have always done and am trying to do by sharing this video is give you the education and inspiration to make the healthy choice. It may not be easy, and you may have the cards stacked against you, but you can do it. I have faith in you.
