During our weight loss challenges groups I will often mention some disturbing facts about the food we eat today but I normally take it easy as I am not one for taking the “scaring people’s approach” and honestly, I think people won’t even believe it and will think I am crazy! 🙂
We live in denial, we know it’s “easier” to believe that it’s not that bad than it is to take a real look at the issue, understand it and deal with it. But on the other hand, I think in the same process lies one of the keys to change, just when you have a real look at the issue, understand what it’s causing you, you can get “shocked enough” to deal with it by changing.

The others had a some what positive experience but dealing with some hunger, not loving the taste, etc.
That’s the difference of good nutrition and HIGH quality products 🙂
