Shawn Phillips and Ken Wilber – Fuel For Life: 10 Strategies for Nutritional Freedom
Shawn Phillips and Ken Wilber Talk about one of the most important:and The most important (but least talked about) component of integral living is food and nutrition. Let’s face it: it’s hard to eat right. There are so many different diet fads. and There are many follies within our culture. It can be difficult for people to get straight answers about what they should do. and You should not put any food into your body. This can make it difficult to improve your eating habits.
And yet there is a very real nutrition crisis in the world—particularly in the U.S., where 49 out of 50 states Colorado has an obesity rate of more than 20%. Our culture has been very inept at dealing with this crisis. Consider, for One example is the fact that nutrition is not taught at any one of the country’s basic medical schools. Our population is becoming more obese. and Even worse, mainstream society continues to ignore our vital nutritional needs.
This is what makes Shawn’s approach so refreshing. For He believes that eating right starts with a basic understanding of nutrition, which enables us to feel how food affects our bodies on a psychological, emotional, and physical level. and Even Spiritual level. Once we have done some groundwork in order to stabilize our relationship to our eating habits and begin the real work of changing our day-To-day lifestyle can find much more traction—and yield much greater benefit—than ever before possible. 🥦
It might seem fascinating that Shawn Frames the issue food and nourishment as “nutritional freedom”. But that is exactly what it is—freedom to make the very best and most informed decisions possible. Even if we refer to our approach to nutrition as a kind of “freedom” Offers a lot-You need a break “diets” and Similar restrictive language is used. After all, integral living is not about limiting or taking anything away from our lives—quite the contrary, it’s about enhancing our lives, Increasing our awareness, and maximizing our happiness. It’s about making ourselves healthy in every aspect of our lives—and Nutrition freedom is the cornerstone of any healthy lifestyle and Happiness is a way of living a happy life. We do, to a certain degree. This is crazy and The only way to control a chaotic world is to decide what we put in our bodies. We are free to choose the foods we eat. and Freedom is the ability to choose. And at this time in history, we have more options than ever before—we can purchase halibut in Colorado, we can find strawberries in the middle of winter, and The local market offers a wide range of delicious foods from around the globe. When it comes down to our relationship with food, we often have fewer options than we realize. I can walk into any supermarket. and I am free to put anything I want into the basket—but what I end up walking out with is subject to a countless variety of unconscious patterns, habits, and Influences, which limit my freedom to make decisions that are in my best interest, my time, and my own best interests, and Time again.
For one, our relationship with food is extremely emotional—perhaps more so than any other relationship in our lives. Our nourishment is not only important but also very important. and We can influence our emotional state, but we also use food to modify, avoid, and alter our emotions. and Our emotions are often augmented by negative feedback loops, which can keep us in bad moods. and bad habits. As Shawn Too often, we live to eat rather than to eat. These unconscious patterns can be made worse by our parents rewarding them with too many cookies and candy. and We were often given treats as children, which can lead to unhealthy emotional relationships with food. These preconditioned responses can be extremely difficult to understand because they are often predetermined.-Verbal in their original languages
Our eating habits can also be influenced greatly by culture. Our appetites, palates, and dining customs are all dramatically influenced by the people around us—our families, our friends and neighbors, our ethnicity, our nationality, our religion, and You can go on and on. There are many different meanings of “health”, and There are many meanings-Food processing and All of which influence our relationship to food. For example, consider the reaction many in the Tea Party have had to Michelle Obama’s Healthy Food education campaign, perceiving it as an attempt to actually restrict their freedom by telling people what they should and shouldn’t eat—when of course, she is trying hard to expand our freedom by educating the population and They can make healthier choices. (This would be comically ironic if it weren’t for The epidemic of obesity in America is a major problem. These cultural attitudes can have a significant impact on our daily eating habits.-Fried Twinkie is a symbol of American nutritional freedom.
The socio-economic pressures bearing down upon our daily nutrition choices—including the price of healthy vs. unhealthy food; the health and Treatment of livestock; the use of poisons or pesticides and Artificial hormones, the seemingly constant infusion of high fructose Corn Syrup into everything we eat; and the lack of time that many people have to cook healthy meals (especially in two).-income families); the incredible conveniences of fast food; and the thousands of ad impressions that can be both whispered and We hear it every day: the Food Lobbies, who are tirelessly working to tip economic scales in favor corporations like Sysco, PepsiCo and Sysco. and DuPont…. The list goes on and On, as the invisible hand continues finding new things and New ways to shovel more and more garbage into our mouths.
Each of these dimensions—psychological, cultural, and social—are affecting our daily nutrition choices, often preventing us from getting the energy we need and Malnourishment is a major problem for millions of people and obesity. All sides are restricting our nutritional freedoms, regardless of whether we are aware. Here’s the key: If you want to be able to make the best health choices, this is the place for you. for You and It is better to be informed than not.
