In this article I'll share with you the secrets of Chinese Food Nutrition Facts - in as much as what REAL food in according to the Chinese Medical System and how this can help you lose weight rapidly and safely and better still, restore you to fantastic fitness and health. No...we aren't going to be talking about the nutritional info for Kung-Po Chicken. 

In the last article I introduced you to the Definition of Nutrition as: 

...the selection of foods and preparation of foods, and their ingestion to be assimilated by the body. By practising a healthy diet, many of the known health issues can be avoided...(Wikipedia)

And I shared with you the concept of the Isometric Diet...

Any food that provides sustenance, and provides equal measurement to

  • longevity,
  • health,
  • appearance,
  • performance and
  • vitality. 

Following from that, I explained a little bit about Traditional Chinese Medicine and that's what I want to continue with today...

Chinese Food Nutrition Facts - Are You Eating Your Words?

The Spleen’s physical properties in regards to the digestive process are also reflected in the mental arena. Surprisingly to a Western audience our Spleen governs and controls our ability to think, concentrate and process information, a crucial ability for the competitive martial artist where fast thinking and analysis of an opponent’s performance can be the decider of victory or defeat.

While this may seem very odd, (and Chinese Food Nutrition Facts often are) it’s not too strange once you “digest the idea”. For instance an easy parallel that can be draw between the digestive processes and thought is what you are doing now – reading. As you read each sentence you have to adapt to the writing style and the words I use (food) and process them as sentences and idea’s you recognize (digestion) and thus understand what is written (nutritional substance and value). 

If it still seems strange, you’ll find the idea is unconsciously recognized with many phrases and common statements reflecting on the connection between the digestive and thought process. For instance, how often have you heard someone say “This book is hard to digest….”, “There’s food for thought”, or “I need to chew over this”. Next time you find yourself mentally stuck trying to learn a new exercise, martial arts form or sequence of movements, maybe the problem isn’t with your head…it’s with your digestion....

In the next issue I'll show you how overeating damages your health in bigger ways than expanding your waist line!
