This show I broadcast via my Cell Phone while I was traveling in Southern California… I loved talking with Coach Carl, and every parent should be reading his informative and empowering web site daily.

I love his “Box Approach” to teaching kids to make wholesome food choices that make it fun, informative, and gives them LIFELONG TOOLS to achieving their personal best.
Coach Carl writes about this Box Approach on his web site, and what he does is put food choices [with yummy photos, preferably] into a box for his daughter to choose from a “menu” of healthy, organic, tasty dishes for her to have the next day for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Coach Carl is brilliant in this approach, because he explained that he is the one who is buying the food, so he wants to help build her self actualization and consciousness for eating healthy by giving his daughter an active part in her own health…. and you can start this at a very young age! Bravo!
I believe this also builds self-esteem in children because it gives them responsibility for their own lives and builds confidence in the new knowledge they are gaining and will have throughout their lives. Excellent.
Vaccines. We touched on the dangers of vaccines in our conversation. Coach Carl does not believe in this practice, and as all of my listeners know, I certainly do not either. I had a show with the lead singer of “The Refusers” on this particular topic and how dangerous and horrifying this life-robbing practice is.
High Fructose Corn Syrup. This was a big question I had for Coach Carl, and I knew that he has extensively written about this important topic in his web site.
It is very dangerous. Period. Sadly, it is everywhere. Look in store-bought ketchup, mustard, SODA, processed foods, and is always in fast foods.
Start to read labels. Be like a personal investigator for your own health. High Fructose Corn Syrup is also labeled, “Corn Syrup” and “Corn Sugar.” The corn refiners are actively lobbying the FDA as we speak. They are not concerned about your health, but they are concerned about their ability to sell a toxic substance at high profit without having to be held responsible for the disastrous results to an entire generation.
It damages your Adrenals, your Liver, your Kidneys, and causes Diabetes and Obesity, and kills brain cells. It can also cause cravings for MORE because it is a very potent drug in your system. It also is linked to behavioral disorders, ADD/ADHD, and other emotional and mental issues in both children and adults.
It should NEVER have been allowed into the marketplace. Who was the bureaucrat who accepted ‘face value’ promises from the Corn Refiners Association? ALL tests performed independently have so many scary results that I am astonished it has made its way to the food paradigm at all.
But knowing how Washington now works, with heavy lobbying by trade organizations, multi-national processed food conglomerates, etc., it somehow is not surprising that Americans are once again being poisoned for profit.
Check out my interview with Coach Carl on the “Archives” section of this blog. I was on my cell phone when we recorded this remotely from LA, but the fun and informative conversation is one of my favorites! Thanks Coach Carl!
