Go Bananas

I usually eat a banana in the mornings, but several? The new banana diet has given Dole a 25% boost in sales--$730,000! That's a lot of bananas. I loved strolling around the Dole Plantation in Hawaii, it's beautiful. The sad thing is they have moved most of their working farms to other locations and a lot of their land is laying fallow. What a waste.

If a movie star says she lost 15 pounds in one week on the banana diet, it must be effective, right? Lemming syndrome. There are three reasons diets work well in the beginning. One, you pay particular attention to WHAT you are eating. Two, your body is bio-unique. No one else's body works exactly like yours. What works well for someone else will not necessarily work well for you so the diet just stops being effective. When your diet has restricted spectrum of food choices you begin to crave other foods. Diet kaputtt. Three, you get bored and stop paying attention to what you are eating.

I like the common sense diet. Eat whole foods that are as close to the ground as possible. Meaning local food, fresh food, food free from additives, real food. What is more beautiful than fresh, wholesome food? If we eat healthier, we will be healthier. Type II diabetes is raging out of control and most of the cases can be avoided with a good diet. When your diet changes, it changes the world. It changes the way food is grown, cared for, delivered and processed. Prevention is the real health care program, and you are responsible for it. Not your mommy, not your spouse, not the government. You. Eat well. Check out my Basic Foundation for wellness at GBHfarm.com. You'll find it in the FAQ section.

Thought for today:
The Japanese eat very little fat, and suffer
fewer heart attacks than the Americans.
The French eat a lot of fat, and suffer
fewer heart attacks than the Americans.
The Mexicans drink very little red wine, and
suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans.
The Italians drink excessive amounts of
red wine, and suffer fewer heart attacks
than the Americans.
The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat a lot
of sausage and fats, and suffer fewer
heart attacks than the Americans.
Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like:
Apparently speaking English is what kills you.
