Steven Spielberg is presiding over judging at the 66th Cannes Film Festival (May 15 -26) along with the vibrant Nicole Kidman on the panel. The festival opened with the ‘The Great Gatsby’ based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel.
In real life, The Fitzgeralds spent winters along the Cote d’Azur with a stylish and sporty coterie of friends living the good life in chic spots like: (here).
Americans prove what is desirable by what they've made popular. Yet, 63.1% of adults in the U.S. are either overweight or obese according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. This leads not just to disease...an astonishing 64% of all bankruptcies are medically related too!
It's Incredibly Simple. We Are What We Eat~
Many, I believe, are fooled by advertising and don't understand it's not about discipline. It's what we tell ourselves about, and how we conceptualize, food.
Most folks, for example, will not sprint across a busy highway at night because they tell themselves there's a good chance of being smashed by an oncoming SUV.
Just as most folks will not charge into a burning building because they tell themselves they'll be fried like bacon.
Same with nutrition. We eat according to how we represent what things mean.
Those healthy looking people at the local Farmer's Markets filling their baskets with high quality fresh produce equate what they eat with creating a higher quality of health and life. Healthy looking people earn more money and attract more opportunities, because they value their well-being, are informed in their choices, and the results are interpreted as care that is extended to other realms of their life.
Those overweight folks pushing carts around Walmart over-loaded with supersized diet colas, gigantic boxes of snacks, and other chemical-laden, factory-farmed, commercialized Frankenfoods...eat for the illusion of comfort--stuffing down what ails them with quantities of toxins to feel better for a moment. It's a false sense of temporary security, because in actuality, every unhealthy swig or bite rolls the dice in favor of an increasingly uncomfortable future.
Dead Foods Are Deadening. Live Foods Are Enlivening~
It's basic, cumulative chemistry. The human body is 70% water. Foods loaded with GMO and laced with chemicals then microwaved in their plastic containers, added to unhealthy bottled salad dressings and other sugar-loaded condiments, plus loads of bread, candies, baked goods, animal products and over consumption of alcohol, added to lack of exercise, creates a stagnant, acidic 'pond'. An inner petri-dish that creates weight-gain, rapid aging, disease, and diminished vitality.
Fresh, vital foods and fresh-air exercise create an inner clear alkaline 'pool' of energy and light. Energy and light are literally magnetic. It's why we call people like Nicole Kidman 'stars'. It's why we attribute words like brilliant, megawatt, sparkle, and glittery to describe them. To the degree a person eats a fresh, healthy diet they literally shine.
