Are We Hungry For Change?

Updated: Sep 4, 2020



When did our food turn into “food like substances”.. Simply said it has quietly been transforming right before our eyes for several decades. One might say there has been a convergence of trends. We are eating fewer nutrient dense foods like fruits, vegetables and meat on the bone, which typically take some preparation and at the same time we are eating many more pre-packaged convenience foods that require nothing more than a walk over to the microwave for a complete meal in minutes.


We used to be a nation of farmers, where farm fresh local sustainable foods were readily available at roadside farm stands. Now we purchase food from big box stores that carry everything from furniture to yard equipment along with our food. On the surface we could simply contribute this to our growing technology that makes food of all kinds available and preserved to last a lifetime. To which some may say is progress especially with so many people to feed.


Unfortunately we have become a nation of overfed and undernourished consumers with the average person consuming over 150 pounds of sugar per year. It becomes crystal clear when we look at the increase of obesity and lifestyle related disease that is reaching down to our children and spreading like wildfire. There is an abundance of food additives being consumed today that are causing addictions and constant cravings leading us to a life of out-of-control over consumption.


Could the foods we are eating actually be keeping us stuck in the diet trap? Think about it, processed foods are typically high in carbohydrate and sugar, which spikes glucose, which then needs the hormone insulin to transport it out of the blood and into storage for energy. Once the insulin does it’s job, your blood sugar drops again making you feel drained and once again hungry. This is the vicious cycle that perpetuates weight gain.


HUNGRY FOR CHANGE, a new documentary film exposes shocking secrets the diet, weight loss and food industry don't want you to know about. Deceptive strategies designed to keep you craving more and more. Although I support individualized diets, which typically includes some clean pasture raised meats, this documentary leans towards an abundance of raw plant foods, which is not right for everyone,. However I love that it pulls back the covers on the ultra processed foods we all eat.
