Food additives truly can affect the way you feel!

I just love to hear how switching to an additive-free diet changes people's lives! Thanks, Pat Reimer (Boca Raton, FL) for sharing with us here...

"After nearly 40 years of dieting, including two times of losing 100 lbs only to gain it all back immediately after, I reached a point where I was well over 300 lbs, and I was left wondering how that could be.  

I mean, I had enough diet knowledge to write an Encyclopedia of dieting tips, but I was still obese. A dietitian recently told me, "Don't eat foods that your grandparents or great-grandparents wouldn't have cooked with.” So I began searching online for 'Recipes from scratch" and "Grandma's Recipes" and in my searching, I arrived at "Completely Nourished".        

I watched Christy's video where she talked about the additives in foods, and I began to learn more about them and the damage they can cause to our health. Then I downloaded the free beginner cookbook she offers, and I was surprised to see so many family-friendly meals.        

For someone coming from boxed macaroni and cheese and hot dogs, I was unsure if I would be able to find recipes that my family would be willing to try. Imagine my surprise when I saw meatloaf and taco salad and salad dressings that were so simple to make and could double as marinades for grilling quick meals! I could do this!  
 
Shopping took some time at first as I began to read labels and remove the blinders that I once wore when shopping. To be honest, I'm still learning my way, but most stores do have non-additive items or organic items if you spend some time looking around or ask an employee for help, and after about a week of eating additive free, (relying a ton on Christy’s and Chad’s e-cookbook and the beginner guide) even at my body size, I noticed I was sleeping better at night and had much more energy during the day and well into the evening hours.  

My health began to improve, my skin began to improve, and I really did feel better. In addition, I began seeing my weight go down, but I was still eating foods like Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo, Homemade Pizza, and Pan-Seared Cajun Shrimp (from their Eating Additive-Free e-book)! The Cajun shrimp was such a family favorite that I had to make it two nights in a row!  

Honestly, to those unsure if this this will work for you, just give it a try. Check out the information here on Completely Nourished and try a few recipes. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain if you find out, as I did, that eating additive-laden foods truly can affect the way you feel."
