Awareness Pledge 2017-01-06T05:04:35+00:00
  • I, solemnly and sincerely pledge to...
    • Do my best to adhere to the AHA’s (American Heart Association) and WHO’s (World Health Organization) daily recommendations for the maximum amounts of added sugars, which are 12 g. (3 tsp.) for young children, 24 g. (6 tsp.) for women and 36 g. (9 tsp) for men.
    • Read nutrition labels carefully, noting there are over 50 aliases for sugar that may be listed on the ingredients list. If SUGAR (or any of its pseudonyms), is one of the first three ingredients, I will consider a healthier alternative.
    • Reduce the amount of highly processed foods in my diet and the diets of my children and family ­ by purchasing, buying, growing, preparing and eating REAL food for myself and others whenever possible.
    • Eliminate liquid sugar beverages like soda and pre­sweetened drinks and reduce the amounts of juice my family drinks, opting instead for water or unsweetened tea.
    • Treat sugar as a treat or something to be enjoyed occasionally and in small doses. Not as a major ingredient in foods and beverages eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. In other words, eat a well­balanced diet, with all things in moderation ­ or as Michael Pollan says, “Eat real food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
  • By signing this pledge I agree to help spread awareness on the current global health crisis we now face due to our food supply, where almost 80% of all grocery store items are laced with added sugars and every ten seconds someone in this country dies from a diabetes or food­induced illness. I pledge to try and stem this tide of degradation which has created the first generation of children in the history of the world predicted to have shorter life spans than their parents. I believe that if we can change what we eat, we can literally change the world ­ one child at a time.

  • A full 80% of all chronic disease can be prevented with better lifestyle choices. That means 8 out of every 10 people currently suffering or afflicted with deteriorating or debilitating illness would potentially be healthy now had they made better decisions prior to becoming ill. Wrap your head around that for a moment, because as the saying goes, "You can't unscramble an egg". _____________________________________________ Our goal at The Noble Path Foundation is to raise awareness about putting the emphasis on PREVENTION, rather than treatment. Most of the medical community is focused on fixing what is already broken. Expensive drugs and medical procedures are about SICK care. HEALTH care should be about what you do NOW to add years to your life and life to your years. _____________________________________________ What we put on our plates - and on those of our children - could be the most important decisions we make on a daily basis.

  • TNPF volunteer Katarina Winzeler is in Slovakia visiting family and friends. She snapped a great pic of her 22-month old daughter, Aurelia, eating her body weight in blueberries and we couldn't resist making her our temporary poster child on the importance of feeding our children REAL food! _____________________________________________ "According to research, food preferences are formed in early childhood and affect an individual’s eating habits for life. Starting early is important to give our children the best chance to live healthy and successful lives and turn the tide on our obesity epidemic." - Teaching Our Kids Healthy Eating Must Start Early, Caron Gremont for The Washington Post _____________________________________________ #healthykids #healthyworld #forkdisease #TheNoblePathFoundation
