Right Fuel = Right Performance

The only machine that I know thrives on any type of fuel is Doc’s car from Back To The Future. If only our bodies worked the same way. Well, they sort of do. Depending on what you put in your body, you can actually speed up or even reverse the aging process.

It seems, with the foods that are lining the grocery aisles, and the abundance of fast food restaurants, many people think we are Doc’s car.

Every mechanical and biological machine has a preferred fuel. Consider the following pictures:

Each one of these “machines” thrive on a certain fuel. You can feed vegetables to a lion in a zoo, but it will not thrive on that diet. Their biology is based on thousands of years of evolution. This principle is quite evident with bears, who have been known to get into human’s garbage. This results in them becoming obese and eventually developing similar diseases as humans.

Humans have a preferred fuel that allow us to thrive and be vibrant and full of energy and life. These are whole, unprocessed foods that have been around for thousands of years. Bad fuel = bad performance … its as simple as that.

If you feed your “machine”  what it wants, you truly will defy the laws of time.
