When you don't know, you don't know there is that blissful innocence, or is it frustration trying to deal with things in the dark? Once you do you know there is no going back. You can not take away what something looks like once you've seen it and you can't completely forget an experience. You can transform how you relate to it, but sometimes this just baffles me.
I have met people who sought out healthy eating and found it to be fantastic. They felt terrific, looked fantastic, had more energy and clarity than ever before, only to go back to old ways of interfering with themselves to have more problems instead of just adopting a regime that works for them.
I think part of the problem is that these folks saw it as an all or nothing type of thing. Either you were in or you were out. They would rather be in the coffee club and miss out on clarity for false drug induced energy. They would rather just eat in any restaurant and deal with the crappy ingredients because of the convenience and miss out on feeling vivacious and alive.
Our schools do not teach what foods do for you so our kids are missing out on basic instructional tools for living. We teach math to get ahead but not how to nourish thinking. Just getting a right answer on a test doesn't mean learning happened, it means we are teaching people to get by, do as little as it takes and steal pleasure where you can no matter the cost. It costs us all a great deal.
Food is a basic start. If you haven't learned how individual foods work for you, your missing out on a fundamental. Begin now and start living a higher quality life!
