the other day my friends husband, who is a doctor, said to me as he was looking at my trolley full of fruit and greens: "we will have to get you eating something healthy soon..."
oh dear D:
that is funny. and tragic that it was a doctor! “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
Amy, unfortunately medical doctors are hired to push pills and cut out body parts as "remedies". They no nothing about healing today. This is why I normally do not go to doctors and know my body much better than they do.
What is truly sad to me is that so many are mind-screwed by big phood manufacturers, dairy, and cattle killers and then drugged into a stuper with further chemicals. Then people have to pay out their asses for insurance to boot or live off the state/Federalies. Not this person!! I'm awake and thriving thanks to eating real food.
Eat your fruits and veggies they say, but then if you actually eat them they're suddenly deficient, cause meat is where it's going on. Need a balanced diet of course, if you don't poison yourself you'll be unbalanced and look thin without the extra fat and water retention! People like conformers, non-conformers scare them! And besides calling someone a doctor when speaking of nutrition, might as well be calling them a car mechanic or something. Doctor = person who played the extended college game and got a piece of paper to back it up, nothing more. I think doctors are actually less intelligent... they wasted their time and energy learning a bunch of info on how to effectively poison people with pills and got a huge bill for the experience. Smart person would have been like 'something isn't right here' and quit before finishing or never started. Well that's for MD's specifically anyways.
Allyourwatermelonarebelongtome: LOL LOL You are soooo right. But I am happy to report that we non-conforming healthy people are starting to wake up the slumbering pill pushers! Hooray!
+ 1 Doctors are no more intelligent than anyone else. Their chief skill is memorization. They have no idea how to think, evaluate, analyze, or theorize.
well now, that is taring all doctors who work very hard in emergency, giving birth, delivering babies, etc etc with the same brush, i know a few doctors, and yes for some it is just a job, but others like my friend the anethetist, however you spell it, deserve credit, and are stellar humans out there saving lives, and no not all problems are from diet.
i am not trying to start a fight as i know where you are coming from but it is worth being respectful to those that put in 16 hour days to help others.
Yeah I know and understand that. I was just addressing the issue and collectivizing a bit expecting people would notice that and understand what was meant. Although even the good ones did have to waste their time, energy, and money to learn a bunch of junk info even if they aren't really using it now and are focused on the better aspects of being a doctor. And they may still fall prey to the traps it set them up for even if it's far more minimal in relevancy. I'm not saying they're idiots really or aren't by and large well intentioned 'good people'. Just mean that most MD's are fed lots of bad info and sometimes they do harm as a result. Also just wanted to point out it's good not to give someone more credit their they're due on a topic just because they're expert in SOME field.
I felt struggle all these years of my studies... But I always thought it's just my lack of discipline, or maybe I'm too lazy or too stupid to get all this info in my little stupid head... It always felt like a loooot of unuseful info - unattached facts on human body... And now I really feel kinda stupid cause I wasted all those years... i didn't felt like I've got any choice from the moment I got in the uni... My parents and everyone else around really makes pressure to finish what I've started. I donno, maybe it's just the lack of sleep or general nervousness before the last, biggest and most important exam talking, but I seriously donno what to do if I'll fail on that exam. I feel like I'll have some value only if I'll get diploma, job and money, which is not necessarily subsequent here...
Kotrina I cannot more hear ya, I am exactly same, the only stuggle i have made was a social acceptance(the victory was they think I am a special special creature that need this diet to be back helthy(they are so blind no metter how hard you try)...so I stop trying I do what I feel and know I really know it by exams. I was on and off the diet for the last 7years, always improve and get sick again just by doing anything else...I did undereat hardcore(plus the waterfast) etc.) ...(I love waterfasting dont get me wrong, it does body miracle for healing)... but I was into lot of damn slim chick, eating nothing but vegetable and lean meat and some carbs once a day or a fruit. So pretty healthy diet and I though why then I damn stuff my self, it is not necessary...but other part was so wory about not having something so I copy the diet of the fit people here that got the results, but I am still not 100%cured(but damn way better)...so I now go more calories, dont even take care of others fear and problem with calories and food, and just eat as much as I care for and improve my mental confidence, stability and it all starts there.... I also hear many people telling me go paleo and your heath get better(lol), i did many times go back to meat, go back to starches, go bach to higher fat and nothing work as 955/811 fruit and veg. and enough calories, water, sleep, blah, bhah...I am really complicated girl, yet so simple heart feeling, I know it, just the self trust was not well build in my familly, so eventhough I know many stuff, finally I didnt believe my self ...and dont wanna be black sheep eventhough I always a bit was whole my life, lol... be a rebel too, finish the study(i though it is nonsense, and still think, but it looks better and people listen to you more(I study law and they listen to me more when I talk about legal issue with a codex alimentarius/food codex and so on)...I deffinitely dont wanna live standart life, wanna be my own boss, having a purpose not being a obeydientworker. But it feels really good to put Bc. or Mgr. or law or whatever in from of my name....socially now I even stand better my lifestyle choice and food choice....gl. girl.
Yeah, there is a huge pressure system on kids to get into college and to complete it. It's pretty harsh, even if you do realize things aren't quite right it's hard to get out of it and there's so much conflicting info it's confusing and many are stuck in a way. I didn't mean to sound all negative on people who do it, just wanted to point out it's a harsh trap that takes a special resistance to escape from. Have to realize it and be willing to alter your path fundamentally in what is likely a scary and risky way and it could jeopardize many relationships. And you may have already built up significant dept when you realize things and then if you don't finish it you're going to have trouble getting a sufficient job to pay it off after, without that degree. But if you get that degree and realize at some point the fallacies, you can use your authoritative position for good in a way a non-MD would have difficulty.
I know what you mean! It's a disgusting system there! Thankfully in Germany you don't have to go to univeristy in order to get a good job afterwards. A nicer alternative in Germany is learning a trade/doing an apprenticeship (like what I do). It's almost like studying but at the same time gaining real work experience and getting paid (even though usually not a high pay, given your in the process of learning the trade). You also usually don't have any admission fees in order to do an apprenticeship.:) Society here is also usually tolerant if you didn't complete university.
