Diet and Nutrition – Impediments to Eating Better

Diet and nutrition is an important component of living a Low Density Lifestyle. If you eat a whole foods oriented diet,  it will help you attain a Low Density Lifestyle by virtue of it helping you be healthier and more in the flow.

And the opposite is also true: if you don’t follow healthy diet and nutrition habits, you will find yourself living a High Density Lifestyle.

There are certain things that are impediments to eating better.  Some of these impediments are self-induced, while others are outside our control.

In the last two articles, I told you about the coming Paradigm Shift in Health Care Part 1 and Part 2.  But the truth is, things are not all rosy, and the old paradigm will not give up without a fight.

Impediments to Good Diet and Nutrition

Today I want to tell you about an impediment to good diet and nutrition eating habits that lie outside our control, although if we do something about it, it doesn’t have to be.

This impediment has to do with the diet and nutrition of school-age children.  Since everyone is or was at one time a school-age child, this influences everyone.  And what you eat at school can influence not only your health right there and then, but it can have long term effects on you – you may continue to eat in the way that you learn in school, and it can also affect your health.

The Food Lobby Goes to School

The video above is produced by the American News Project, and is called The Food Lobby Goes to School.  It will tell you how strongly the food industry, and their lobbyists, make sure that their products are not shut out of schools, and that kids are fed their foods.

Obviously, as you will see from the video, it is not what is in the best diet, nutrition and health interests of kids, but what is in the best interests of the food companies.
