André-Leu-talks-with-the-Nutrition-Heretic-.jpg

Welcome back to the Talk Story portion of our visit with André Leu, right here in Hawaii, speaking about Poisoning Our Children. If you haven't yet listened to André's main presentation, you can catch that right here. Most of the last half of this session had to be removed due to inaccuracies, erroneous claims and intentionally damaging statements made by a few attendees in an attempt to discredit our local producers and deflect from the subject at hand. Sadly, such trolling by people with no concern for or experience with human health has become commonplace at such events. This segment had to be removed so as not to spread false information about our producers.

Andre Leu is the Author of Poisoning our Children and the Myths of Safe Pesticides. He is International Director of Regeneration International, an organization that promotes food, farming and land use systems that regenerate and stabilise climate systems, the health of the planet and people, communities, culture and local economies, democracy and peace.

He was the President of IFOAM – Organics International, the world change agent and umbrella body for the organic sector. IFOAM – Organics International has around 850 member organisations in 127 countries.

90 Days To Amazing! Weight Loss Coaching Program

leah-McCulloughs-90-Dys-To-Amazing-Weigh-Loss-with-the-Nutrition-Heretic.png

90 Days To Amazing[Please listen until the end for an exciting offer] Congratulations on making it through the Frenching Your Food Summit! You’ve learned a ton of information about how the French get and stay skinny.  Right now, you might be feeling a little angry that you’ve been duped by the food, dietetics or medical industries, but it’s not worth it. Let it go so you can move forward and reclaim your life and your ideal weight.

So where do you go from here?

Well, first let’s run down some of the takeaways from the summit.

1.It’s not your fault. You’ve been given a buttload of inaccurate information for most of your life. Now, you have the tools to chart your course on your terms with what you’ve learned from our speakers.

2. Your body is designed to run on farm fresh foods, not warped and chemicalized ingredients that “never go bad"

3. Even if you’ve been eating like this all your life, if you live in the US, the food quality is simply not the same as it is in Europe. So where you can, buy organic or transitional organic to avoid the pesticides and GMO that will cause you to pack on the pounds.

4. Gluten and grains are not the devil for everyone.

5. Your body is constantly giving you information about the foods you eat. Learn to observe what’s optimal compared to what you’ve been experiencing for years and accepting as normal.

6. Emotional blockages, inadequate sleep, frequent overexercise and negative thoughts about food can have as negative an impact on your weight as your actual food choices

7. One screw up doesn’t mean you can’t get back on the wagon tomorrow or even next week.

8. You may have been diagnosed with hormonal, adrenal, thyroid and inflammatory issues like Fibromyalgia  and know that they are at the core of your weight issues, but haven’t found relief. Our experts know how to resolve these conditions effectively to bring you long lasting relief and help you reclaim your body.

9. Food is a celebration, not a chore. It is what connects us to family and community. Slow down at the table. Make time to think about and prepare foods — do it in large batches if you must. But most importantly embrace an easy lifestyle loaded with enjoyable meals.

During the Summit, I was talking to Leah McCullough. She’s the Fibro Lady you listened to on Day 3. In any case, she had a wonderful idea to help you integrate all of the knowledge you’ve learned here. What she’s put together is a 90 day program to walk you through each step of improving your health while achieving your optimal weight.

In her program called 90 Days to Amazing, you’ll receive :
