Welcome to A BETTER ME! I have to say I am so proud of all of you who are doing so well at eating better and getting your exercise.

This week we had a total of 11.4 lbs that have been removed from our group. We are getting smaller and smaller and that's what we like!

Today I thought I would share with you something I have seen before but then I forgot all about it...until I got an email the other day about it.

Mother Nature is so wonderful. Not only does she provide us with so much beauty in this world but she also has given us clues in our food about what to eat for what parts of our body.

You may have seen this before but I think it's really interesting and worth posting for those who have never seen this.

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocados, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
So the next time you are eating your fruit and vegetables take a better look at them and see what Mother Nature is telling you they are good for.
Until next Wed. remember to be nice to yourself and if you start to get down just look in the mirror and what you will see is a you looking back saying you are doing great on becoming A BETTER ME!

Hi Joanne

This was fascinating to read and so informative! Thanks so much for all the information and the nice photos you found to accompany it --great job!

I've noticed my pants are looser since I've been watching what I eat and walking more, so "A Better Me" is working ;-)

Hugs, Pat

I've lost about 12 pounds since starting on Better Me. I'm sorry I forget to tell you on Tuesdays. I'm down a dress size and lost some back fat. Yea!
Hugs, Susan

If we would pay attention we would know that God was pointing this out to us all along.

Thanks for the reminded to eat out fruits and vegetables.

Wow, I love the analogy of the fruits with the organs.

I lost 4 pounds! That is a total of 8 pounds. But nothing is feeling looser yet and I look the same in the mirror. But I will get there!

That is so cool! I have a degree in Biology and never came across that way of thinking! Thanks for sharing!

Glad to hear that you are shrinking! :)

You are doing a GREAT job! Thanks for sharing. I want to join the group, perhaps it will give me a push to get the gym and eat my veggies and fruits. Mumzie
