Is the Grocery Store Lying to You Too?

On a teleconference call a while back, having had 3 previous coaching calls given on natural weight management, one of the attendees began to cry. We all waited patiently for her to get her composure to say what she was so tenderly feeling. These were her words:

"When I walk into the grocery store now, I feel like I have been lied to, cheated, and robbed! The foods that are on those shelves are not healthy, they are not good for me, and I now realize that they are causing me to not feel well and to be overweight! How can they get away with selling these foods? It is so wrong!"

We were all quiet for another moment or two. Then I applauded her for coming to that realization because that is what it all boils down to. Today, we rely so heavily on grocery stores for our food supply, yet we don't understand why we are so over weight, and experiencing the many health challenges we face. There are few that really make the connection between what they are buying and eating, and how they are feeling - yet she had come to that realization!

Education is key! So ask yourself where you are getting your education? From the television commercials, weekly sales ads, radio advertisements - or are you researching for truth about foods and how they affect your body?

The Health Retreats were specifically set up to:
re-teach you (or begin to teach you) the truth about foods and why fueling your body with wholesome foods is so important
get you on a healthy eating plan - complete with menus we create and eat while there, as well as healthy menu planning
help you avoid excess weight, many disorders and diseases, surgery, and more!

The next Women's Health Retreat is at the end of this month, April 23-26 - and at an all time low price of only $395 which includes your materials, food and lodging complete. But you must sign up two weeks prior to the session to get this price.

Sign up now and come get the answers you need to get the results you seek!
