To stereotype, the Western diet is fast, convenient, processed, chemically altered, carbohydrate heavy, low protein, and lacks vegetables.

Americans are overfed and undernourished: lots of calories with little nutrition. Our diets should essentially be the source of all our nutrients. The adage goes “You are what you eat.” is really truth. Is your body made up of synthetic lab derived chemicals and food substitutes?
