It has been mentioned in other posts on the MDA Forums. Our Primal LIfe enables us to see through "The Matrix", the CW nutritional dogma that has set human kind spiraling towards oblivion. The processed foods so aggressively marketed, the lies propagated for so long.
I had such a Primal day: good long sleep in a dark and silent room, awoke with no alarm, took a two hour dog walk (iPod playing Jimmy Moores' recent interview with Lierre Keith) in the cold bright winter weather, then hit up a Crossfit workout (21 reps on Cindy for any Crossfitters out there!) followed with some heavy deadlifts. Then off to get some work done (oh yah, almost forgot to eat, so at 21 hours fasted, I had a hearty "break-fast" of local raised "wild" beef stew with cabbage, carrots and jicama along with a Big A$$ Salad), then stopped out to the grocery store to pick up some treats (blueberries appear to be in season in Chile) and staples. This is NOT bragging, but something Sisson's work has me focussing on as being an ideal sort of day! It is typical for me now.
I then walked into something so foreign. Sick people, damaged, limping, in wheel chairs, using walkers, puffy, sagging, lagging, wheezing, dragging themselves up and down the aisles. All ages, races, both sexes, lots of despair and hopelessness to be seen. It became like slow-motion as I scanned damaged humans whose bodies are simply trying to cope with the foods, chemicals and other inputs they are given. Very few visibly "fit" people.
The 400lb man on oxygen, in a wheelchair with one amputated foot is not a weak man, not a sinner, not immoral, not to be judged. He is just ignorant. Likely his family and friends are as well. No doubt there are many health professionals that have their own stamp of frustration with/for this guy; they may be ignorant too. Why else would he have a carton of cigs, a family size box of Fruit Loops, 2 gallons of skim milk, and a fridge pack of Diet Mt Dew? It wasn't that he's given that purchase a lot of thought.
Why else would the Mom-of-three be in a heated discussion on her cell phone as her 3 kids orbit around her consuming candy and juice boxes as she pushes a cart of processed packaged "food" with nary a natural product among them? Poor little guys, one of them is already visibly chubby, all three have skinny faces, crooked teeth and poor skull/facial/dental development Weston A. Price makes me see in myself every morning. It's set by now for them, too.
Well, thanks for reading this if you got this far. I just about deleted this rather than posting it. I hope I don't come off as a jerk sitting in judgement, that is NOT how I feel. I feel empathy as I was raised this way, we all were! It will be an impossible task, but Primal LIving has to become the norm. Make the steps, help your friends and family take the steps. It is important stuff.
