Currently the American diet derives most of its energy from poor quality proteins, low quality fats, refined carbohydrates, and copious amounts of sodium and sugar. To add to the injury, it is loaded with immune system harming chemicals resulting in chronic inflammation. As a result, we have an avalanche of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, some forms of cancer, and early puberty. Latest nutrition research points a strong finger at the harm caused by copious consumption of fast foods.

In the book, The New American Diet, author Stephen Perrine describes obesogens as chemicals added to our food supply. Obesogens disrupt the normal balance of human hormones triggering an unnatural increase in fat cells and escalation in rates of diabetes, depression, heart disease, and declining sperm counts. Indeed, a steep price to pay for the convenience of eating chemicals loaded fast food.
We must change our eating habits.
A frequently asked question is, “How long will it take me to change my eating habits?” For an answer, we need to learn from history, folklore, mythology, and science: Moses was on the mount for 40 days, 40 days of Lent, Ali Baba and his 40 thieves, Lizzie Borden and her 40 whacks, Texans fixing to plow the back 40, and WD-40. That is why we would like you to take the pledge not to eat fast food for 40 days.
“The best thing you can do for yourself…and the world!”
With this pledge, you promise not to eat fast food for 40 days.
