I hope you ,l. have.a great week; :: ' c Nutrition & You An American Epidemic Part two: Human Nature Last week I presented the problem on the epidemic - obesity in America. There are many reasons for this epidemic; however I'd like to focus on us, the human species. Today, America's citizens are in a situation unprecedented in the history of our species; we have an over abundance of cheap, low quality food. Let's face it, as a species our basic instincts and physiology (how our bodies functlonl have not changed much in the millions of years we've been on this planet. In order to keep our species going, we are programmed to eat as much food as we can. In fact, humans have no "stop eating" mechanism and about the only thing that gets us to stop eating is pain. Back in the old days when we had to hunt and gather our food we used a whole lot of energy doing it, and possibly had to avoid being eaten while we were at it[ Food wasn't always easy to come by either. Some items such as sweets, fats, salt and meats or other protein were rare and most of these nutrients were seasonal and regional. To continue as a species it makes sense that we ate all we could of a nutrition source when it was available. By contrast, today most Americans expend very few calories obtaining and preparing their food. Another factor in the epidemic is our body's response to stress. Our bodies react to stress today just as they did back when we discovered the wheel. When we feel stress of any kind whether it's the mortgage (emotional) or avoiding being eaten (physical) our bodies initiates the *fight or flight" mode. Many metabolic reactions take place in the face of stress. by Linda Taylor, Nutritionist, ACHC One stress hormone that affects obesity is cortisol. Cortisol is secreted by the adrenal gland and long story short, after the stress has passed, the cortisol sticks around telling our brains to eat so we can replace the calories we used fighting or fleeing. This Is a great mechanism when we are avoiding being dinner; not so great for modem, emotional stresses. Now that we understand our basic natures, we can take action. We can ask ourselves, "Do I need it or do I want it?" We can stop ourselves from over indulging. We can choose nutrient rich foods Instead of nutrient poor foods. We can choose to exercise. Next week, I'll discuss ways to make all this happenl Linda Taylor is the nutritionist at the Adams County Health Center.

That phrase, "in love" appears in the book of Ephesians in the Bible, but it has nothing to do with going to Jared or ordering flowers or paja- mas. First, "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another In love." (Eph. 4:2) The "in love" here has to do with lovingly endur- ing all the character flaws of each other for the sake of unity. I once heard of a wife who made a list of the ten things about her ered her the most. Then, she prayed and gave the list of faults over to God, tore up the list and never nagged her husband about any of them. Now that is patiently bearing with him! Secondly, "speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ." (Eph. 4:15) The "in love" mentioned in this verse has to do with caringly correcting some- one in the faith who has been misguided by incor- rect teaching. If we do so in a loving manner, using the word of God as a guide, they can grow to be more like Christ. If we fail to speak the truth in love, we leave them toss- ing about on the waves of deceitful schemes like nevF-huabd.:*that .lmth-: a ship which has lost its bearings. Finally, "From him [Christ] the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting llga- ment, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." (Eph. 4:16) The "in love" here is not some fleeting thing. that fades over time. Instead, the love of believ- ers builds the body of Christ up and helps it to mature. If you want to see ff a church is mature and thriving, check the pulse of how much love there is between the members. A lack of love is like a tom ligament that cripples the body. Now, that compari- son is not one you will see on a Valentine card or a box of chocolates. However, a healthy body with love that builds each other up will last long after February,.14.L.J , .
