You Can Do it!

You can do it ladies. I know that I have been raving about eating right and weight loss for a while now and eventually I'll have to move this discussion to another blog, but I wanted to catch all my sistahs who are struggling with health and weight issues. I like focusing on "natural" sistas for a few reasons:

1)Many of you still eat soy products like(tofu,soy burgers,soy ice cream) and this is just not healthy! You think because your vegetarian that your somehow doing something special by consuming so much of this waste product but it is a slow death ladies.

Why is soy bad? Because not only is a waste product of soy oil production, it was not even invented for human consumption. It was used as fertilizer and it wasn't until the fermentation process was discovered that it began being food.

The original soy food was in the form of (miso,tempeh) not the crap that is marketed as high-end food in over priced stores like Whole Foods.

So the arguement that Asians have been eating soy for centurys is true but not in the amount or the form that we americans eat it today. Most Asian countries(Japan, China,Taiwan,Korea) only eat between 9-36 grams of soy per day! So while your eating soy sausage links for breakfast, a tofu salad for lunch and tofu stir-fry for dinner, YOU HAVE OVERDOSED!

Whats make this bad? The phyto-estrogens
This compound becomes present because of the way the soy is process. It mimics human estrogen and is the cause of many dysfunctions in women including Fibroid, Tumors,Heavy Menstrual Bleeding etc. For men its the Enlarged prostate!

And check this: Do you know that if you are giving your baby soy formula as its only source of food that it is the equivalent of 3-4 birth control pills in their systems. Boys who have been fed a soy diet as babies are now developing female breasts and small penises!

Another thing to eliminate is Meat! I know that I said it before so I'll make my point quick
. MEAT HAS NO NUTRITIONAL VALUE
MEAT HAS TO ROT IN YOUR INTESTINES BEFORE YOU CAN PASS IT OUT!
MEAT CAUSES ACID BUILD_UP IN YOUR FAT CELL THEREBY MAKING YOU MORE FAT!
WHEN YOU EAT MEAT< YOUR BODY LOSES OXYGEN AND CALCIUM CAUSING AGING AND CELL DAMAGE!
MORE GAIN IS USED TO FEED ANIMALS THAN PEOPLE, STOP EATING MEAT AND WE COULD END WORLD HUNGER!


Do not let anyone fool you into believing that these foods will nourish your body. I am crying out to my sistahs because we are the first Doctors. We are the ones to see something wrong with any member of our families. If we change, the rest of the family will follow.

Natural hair is a great thing. For many of us, its like being more connected to our creator. It's like we give honor and glory to our creator by embracing our natural hair; its our uniqueness. But I say that we need more than the outer appearance to give honor to our creator. Our bodies tell us what is natural for it. We have to start listening to it and giving what it needs so that we can truly be closer to GOD. How can you truly live if you wake up each mourning hating your body, or have aches and pains, sickness and disease?

Sisterlocks is a movement that has changed black women's lives and I hope to do the same for your bodies as well

A Million Hugs and Kisses My Sistahs

Love

My 2cents:

Americans eat Too Much of Everything! {especially meat}. We are one country that eats almost
24-7. Then have the nerve to turn around and complain about being overweight!

take care~
