Today nearly a billon people are hungry, and almost two billion are overweight. It’s the first time in recorded history that millions of people are both obese and hungry at the same time. Those who are human and eat food may need to read this book.   

Mind Matters is offering a study of Dr. Caroline Leafs’ book “Think and Eat Yourself Smart.” It starts Wednesday and will meet for seven weeks from 7 to 8 p.m. at the courthouse assembly room (Use the door to the extension office and turn right.)

Books have been ordered and will be available the first night of class for $5 and $10. 

Mark Bloyer and Mary Wyatt will be facilitating the discussion. 

Participants will learn all about the Modern American Diet (“MAD”) and how its gotten this bad. More than 90 percent of grocery store purchases are made up of highly processed foods that effect the digestive health which influences the overall mind and body health. The industrial food system has devolved into an unhealthy mess of barely nutrition because its focus became more about profit rather than the health of people.

Leaf says there is no one way of eating that works perfectly for everyone, and she believes the most important thing is to eat real (whole) foods, mindfully. Foods grown the way they were intended to, containing fats, carbohydrates, proteins and all the other important building blocks that we need for nutrition without chemicals and in the most natural conditions possible.

“Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet, most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content,” Leaf said. “Our thinking and eating are related events that we need to get under control. Our thoughts and our eating affect how our genes turn on and how they function.”

 In this revolutionary book, Leaf packs a lot of information that will change reader’s eating and thinking habits for the better. This is not a diet program nor a solution. This book will guide readers how to be their own solution. For more information, contact Mary Wyatt at (620) 218-6534 or Mark Bloyer at (620) 218-8576.
