The picture of President Obama is significant because it teaches us something about human nature - beliefs determine behavior.
People do not change their behaviors until they change their beliefs. If we desire a nation of health, energy, vitality, and fitness then we need to change our beliefs which in turn will change our behaviors.
I am sure that President Obama would agree with me that hot dogs are not a health food. The focus is not on the hot dog it is on the behavior.
Many us believe in moderation in all things. I would suggest moderation in all good things ALWAYS and moderation in all things NEVER!
If the health and wellness of this great Nation is going to change for the good than we will need to change our beliefs which in turn will change our behavior. It is behavior based upon our core beliefs that determine the consequences of our life. Take a moment and think about your behaviors and the consequences of your life and note how they are based upon your fundamental core beliefs.
In the words of Gandhi, "You must be the change you want to see."
For me I choose a an alkaline lifestyle and diet.
