https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Hunter+Gatherer+to+Baby+Boomer

I am writing this to ask you to help me with a small favour.

Some time ago I wrote a book called “Hunter Gatherer to Baby Boomer; How Food Evolved.” It has been on Amazon, but has now been re-published as a 2nd re-published, re-formatted and updated edition.

I wrote it because in my lifetime since the 1940’s I have been intrigued watching how food has changed out of all recognition.

The book begins with the Hunter Gatherers, but I have concentrated particularly on the last 100 years, decade by decade, right up until the developments in the 21st century.

I found some amazing facts about how people have always been aware of the shape of their bodies. Watching weight and worrying about self-image is nothing new apparently, and I found some amazing ways that people have done it.

Who is it for?

Have you ever considered how the food we eat has evolved?

Have you ever wondered why our food today is laden with sugar, salt and other preservatives?

In this new book, you will discover how our hunter-gatherer ancestors existed and what they ate, before the advent of farming, domesticating animals and mass production of food.

You will also learn about the obesity epidemic which has gripped the western world and where it has its roots, as well as how food has rapidly developed and changed as the 20th century progressed and our eating habits changed.

There can be little doubt that we are less healthy now than ever and this is in large part because of the food we consume. With ever increasing amounts of sugar, salt and preservatives going into our daily intake, it’s no wonder our bodies are changing in shape.

Now you can see why this has happened and make informed choices about the sort of food you consume.

Get your copy at the times below for just £0.99 and see how the food we eat today has changed beyond all recognition.

I would love it if you bought a copy to help me to get a high ranking on Amazon which puts it onto their bestseller promotions (usually featured on the right-hand side of the page) and therefore creates high visibility for this most interesting book, unique in its subject matter.

When to buy it.

To ensure that happens I have reduced the price from £3.44 to the special price of 99p. (Cheaper in USD)  It will be available for this price from 2pm-9pm on Saturday 10th June and between 12 noon to 5pm on Sunday 11th June.

Please buy at the times suggested because Amazon calculates its bestseller rankings between these times.

Can you leave a review?

Then I’d love you to go onto Amazon and leave a review. The more reviews I get for this book the better its profile worldwide.

It only needs something like;

Really enjoyed Patricia Cherry’s book. I had not thought about the history of how food came to be where it is now in the 21st century. I was fascinated with how long some foods have been in existence and also with how and why we now depend on so much processed food. … Or something like that.

Don’t have kindle – still buy it.

If you don’t have a Kindle, you can still download the Kindle player for free on all computers, tablets and phones.

I’d love it if I could reach as many readers possible world-wide.

Many, many thanks. I will let you know how it goes.

Patricia.

Experiencing Macular Degeneration.

berries-1024x300

 

I thought I would write about Macular Degeneration from the point of view (pardon the pun) of someone who is experiencing it.

This is a condition where the Macula at the back of the eye, degenerates with ageing. People who have the condition lose their central vision.

This results in loss of visual acuity and/or losing the ability to use contrast.

Because the problem is with the central vision, people may not be able to see other people’s features.

People who have this condition can fall into various categories, they may be extremely challenged and have very poor sight, or they may be just struggling to see what people without the condition can see and take for granted.

People, in general, do not understand this condition; I used to be one of them, and wonder why the sufferer (I hate that word but cannot think of a better one to use) can see some things, but not others.

Let me give you an example. I was in a store the other day looking for a warm cardigan. The cardigan I wanted was hung fairly high, and I could not see the sizes. So I asked the assistant for some help because I have a vision problem.

She asked what size I wanted, passed it down and walked away. I managed to find what I wanted eventually. But I had to keep lifting the various cardigans down because I could not see the sizes. This is to do with contrast. The sizes on the labels were in such small print that I could not see them. The sizes on the hangers were yellow against brown. NO CONTRAST.

When I went to the counter to pay, the unhelpful assistant was standing watching. The assistant behind the till asked if I wanted a bag, and when I looked down there was a five pence piece on the floor so I joked that I would have a bag as the five pence for it had just been supplied, and I picked it up.

The other Assistant, remarked, “Your sight can’t be that bad then if you can see that!”

I don’t know about you, but I hate having to be defensive. So I tried very patiently to explain that there are some things that I can see and others I can’t, and the reason why I could see the silver five pence piece was that it contrasted well with the dark carpet on the floor.

This event is what prompted me to write this. In the group that I attend for MD we are very aware of people’s ignorance about this condition, and because people are living longer now and it is a degenerative condition, there are many more of us cropping who have the condition.

You may see people, like me, who walk around using a symbol cane. There are three types of canes for sight and vision problems.

Most of you will know about the regular white cane or walking stick, which has been in use for generations.

Then there is a cane with black and red stripes, which is for people with sight and hearing problems.

The cane that I use and is coming into popular use is a Symbol cane, or Identity cane.symbol-canesymbol-cane-folded It is to alert the public that I have a vision problem and to be patient if I seem to be slow or getting in the way, or I am asking for help.

This simple little device brings me more understanding and patience from people. Once they can see that there is a problem, because of my symbol cane, most people are kind.

But there are many people who are confused, which I have already mentioned.

The problem caused by lack of contrast manifests itself in a few ways. There is one example above. in my story about the cardigan hunt.

I can see letters as long as they are in good background and lettering colours.

I can see, black against white or yellow or pale colours.

But I cannot see lettering on two similar colours, for example; white on blue or green or pale colours, or black on red, brown on yellow, and horror of horrors two shades of the same colour.

A menu in a Restaurant I visited recently was in lilac lettering on a beige card. I could not see a thing! Even though compared to many I have good sight.

Contrast is also important for steps, bus and transport platforms, and edges of pavements. We already use contrast in our everyday lives for these things because of health and safety for everybody.

For people with MD, good contrast can be essential.

It may be worth while to consider that when you are designing an app or a website for example.

A report by the BBC from 2011 says that there are over 60,000 people in Britain with the condition and the numbers are predicted to rise.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-12736988

The condition is not curable, but there are things that you can do to help avoid it while you are younger. Also there are supplements that you can take to help control the speed that it takes control of your sight.

Once again good nutrition is vital http://www.allaboutvision.com/conditions/amd-prevention.htm  and supplements which contain Meso-Zeaxanthin as well as Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc and copper.

You can obtain supplements claiming to be for your eyes, but the best ones contain the extra Meso-Zeaxanthin.

Eat plenty of green vegetables which contain Lutein.

I recently heard an eye consultant claim once again that it is a waste of money taking supplements for MD, because if you eat a good diet, that should be enough.

But the nutritionists among us will agree with me, that the question is “How many people bother with a good diet?” Secondly, by the time food reaches us, how many nutrients have seeped out, if they were there in the first place with the depleted soils of the twenty first century?

Other contributing factors, as well as the genetic one, are the same as for other conditions, smoking, obesity and lack of exercise. My contributing factors were smoking for thirty years, and the genetic one.

I tried to think of a better word than sufferer earlier, because I don’t see myself as a “Sufferer” but as someone who is experiencing the condition. However, it would sound crazy to go around saying “I’m experiencing the condition of Macular Degeneration!”

So please don’t misunderstand and think that I am asking for sympathy, I am simply letting you all know what MD is and what people “Experience” with it.

So, if you see people with a white symbol stick, yet you are wondering why they seem to be able to see, I hope that this information will help you to understand a bit more and shed light on the confusion.

Comments are welcome.

The Rebellious Diet!

Cherry-Logo111

Are you tired of being told that you are fat, or need to lose weight, or that you don’t eat properly?

Are you tired of feeling bullied?

By the medical profession, or by the media, family, friends or work collegues.

But you are feeling rebellious and won’t listen or take action.

Yet deep down, you know that they are right, but you don’t want “them” to see that they are.

Of course it may be that the voice is coming from within you. You know that it’s right, but somehow you manage to ignore it.

How would it feel to walk into a room or the surgery in a few months and shock people with your success?

How would it feel to say “I did it my way?”

There is an old saying “Don’t cast your pearls before swine.” In other words, if you tell people what you are doing, they will be cheering because they think they are right, they will be watching you and making remarks, or they will be giving their opinions and throw you off Piste.

The secret is; “Don’t tell anyone what you are doing”!

I have written two books that may be the answer to your problems.

Kindle_Cover_Edited“Design your own diet” is to help you to do it your way. It could be the perfect answer for a rebel like you. You can sit with this book and work out a way of eating and thinking, that is entirely your own. No rules except the ones that YOU make. The subtitle is “My Ideas, My results” that means yours and no-one elses.

Take the oppurtunity to get it FREE on Amazon kindle on Monday 19th Jan and Tuesday 20th.

Why wait to be Happy?

 

happycherry_cover

It is a chicken and egg situation.

Are you living for tomorrow and getting everything together hoping it will make you happy?

Or are you happy, and then everything starts to come together?

The latter is what is meant by living in the Now.

Many people spend every day trying to achieve things in the belief that one day everything will come together and at last they will be happy.

The shiny new car, the big house, meeting a partner, studying for qualifications and even trying to lose weight, are all in the future, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Indeed, there is everything right about it.

BUT be careful that in trying to achieve that utopia, you don’t lose everything that you already have.

Peace of mind, loving and being loved, being healthy, active and mindful, are all things that will help you to achieve what you want in future, but don’t sacrifice them along the way eh?

Be happy while you are being active in pursuing what you want.

Be aware of those around you who love you and want your company.

Be active and keep yourself fit.

Eat the right healthy foods and feed your body the proper nourishment.

Be mindful of that inner voice or source that is guiding you.

Be aware of the power of now.

Be happy and everything you want will be attracted to you because you will have created it that way. 

Namaste

What is Your Ageing or Health Story?

Kindle_Cover_Edited

Are you struggling with weight?

Are you active enough?

Are you always at the doctors surgery?

Are you ageing with vitality?

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O3HGHNK – http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00O3HGHNK                                  Are you bored?

I bet that you could find something that you really want to do or be, but you have a story that is holding you back.

It could be that you believe the reason why you are not able to achieve your goal is a genuine one. But why not just write THE END to the old story and begin a new one.

For example. You have contacted a friend and he or she has not answered. In your mind you think, she doesn’t like me anymore, or she is too busy for the likes of me, or I bet she’s out enjoying herself somewhere and doesn’t care. When you eventually find out that she had lost her phone, or was with someone and could not be disturbed, there is sigh of relief and you realise that what you did was to make up a story. And every time a similar circumstance comes up, you re-write the old story.

Let’s  take a problem such as losing weight. It could be that you have tried every diet under the sun and it has not worked. So you have given up trying. How true is your story? Have you really tried every diet under the sun? And if you think that you have, could there be another way, other than dieting?

Take activity, you may have persuaded yourself that you are an active person and that you get plenty of exercise. You go to the gym, or have tried that, but it makes you so tired and hungry that have given it up as a dead loss. Have you thought of trying another way rather than just giving up?

Visiting the doctor for every little ache, pain or concern, can be a bad habit. Or it could be that you are bored. Or it could be that it is your hobby in life to talk about illness instead of just finding out what your condition is, research it, deal with it the best way possible, put it on the back burner and get on with your life.

Are you feeling your age? Do you feel older than your years? Are you blaming everything on your age?

Are you really bored or are you just lifeless with no motivation?

Or are you still living the old story?

I have just watched a Tony Robbins talk on TV in which he talks about how to win in life. He talks about motivation, strategy and how to infuence people, but he reckons that the single biggest thing that holds people back is their story.

What is yours?

What is really stopping you?

Are you telling the same story over and over again in life and not even considering that you could change it?

You do have a choice! You can change it!

What ever you may be feeling that you stuck in, or a failure at, how could you change the story?

Put a stop to procrastination, fear and using your old story as an excuse.

If you are stuck in the old story with your weight, or any food issues, there are two reports that you can obtain FREE with no subscription sign up, and I promise that you will not hear any more from me unless you want to, if you just write to me by email and request one or the other or even both. They are;

Food; Friend, Fun or Foe?

christmas2012 009

 

For over forty years, I considered myself a victim. To;

  • My Self Image
  • My ugly body
  • The fat on my body
  • Foods that just triggered me off
  • A compulsion to just carry on eating, even when fullSodDieting
  • Dieting to get rid of the fat and feelings of loathing
  • Calorie counting
  • Fat units
  • Food intolerance
  • Addiction
  • My fat belly

It took me nearly a life time to discover the root of why I have always had this battle. One of them being that as a child I was always being told to tuck my tummy in, and as a 14 year old I was issued with a corset to keep it in.

This message was not only coming to me from my Mother, but from my gran and also a teacher at school who was the ring leader in calling me GubGub after the pig in Dr Dolittles adventures.

I don’t blame any of them now, but I did for a long time, even of I was unaware of it.

Many new regimes of eating in our modern days, look at the physical side of control. But there is another deeper side to it all. Much like trying to run a car that keeps breaking down. Just filling it with more fuel, or a different type of fuel, will not fix the problem if it is the battery that is flat. So it is with humans. If we keep just thrusting down feelings, memories and resentment, we will never get to the root of the problem. Our batteries will always be flat.

Getting into the right place is not necessarily just about looking great. When we have an “inner” glow, we can look fantastic.

Part of my inner work that freed me up was forgiveness for all those people who gave me a false message, which I lived by.

I have had quite a journey over the years, some of it exciting, some not, but always challenging.

It is a wonderful thing to be free of the tyranny of forever worrying about my shape and my looks.

How do you go about finding that inner glow, which gives you confidence in yourself, and frees you up from the necessity of the “Forever Diet?”

I would love to hear your comments.

Either here, or perhaps on my Facebook page.

Ageing and the Law of Attraction

banner-790x90

Untitled-1

Many of you will be aware of the Law of Attraction and many may not.

Many may be aware of how this affects ageing, and indeed your whole life cycle.

Firstly lets define what the LOA is.

It is something that happens whether you believe or not! Just like gravity, it is a Universal law. One of the things that keeps the universe going. It is an energy, you cannot see it, but it is there. It is NOT a magic spell, that you can use to just sit and attract things to you with.

But when you see evidence of it, then it can seem magical.

There is a film that has been used to introduce people to the Law of Attraction called “The Secret!”  This was pruduced by Rhona Byrne some 10 years ago, and brings a lot of peoples attention to it. But I would like to emphasise that it is only an introduction. There is a lot more behind it than just saying that you want something and expecting it to happen.

You do need to take action! For example if you want to lose weight, you cannot just say “I want to lose weight” and then continue with your present lifestyle. But what will happen if you mean it, is that you will find people and things coming into your life that draws your attention to the changes that you can make. It is up to you to make those changes and use those resourses.

Hence, the word Attraction.

In our every day lives, the LOA is coming into effect with what we think, say and believe. It works for the better and for the worse.

If you get up in the morning and think that you are going to have a good day, you will more than likely have a good day. If you think that you are going to have a bad day, then you almost certainly will, unless you change your thinking.

A good example would be if you got up and tripped over a rug on your way to the shower, and then perhaps you dropped the soap. You may think “Here we go, it’s going to be one of those days!” Guess what happens. But you could just say, “Ok world, you want a challenge? It’s not been good so far, but I will damn well make sure that it does not stay that way!”

Sychronisation then comes into play, and you start noticing the good things going on around you. You forget the bad start, and get on with your day.

This is what happens in life in general, and so it can be with ageing. If you think of your older years as something to dread and resist with constantly fighting it with ani-ageing this and anti-ageing that, you end up attracting a dreadful old age, and cannot understand it when you find that you are fighting what seems like a losing battle. You find that inspite of all your efforts, with face creams, make up, face lifts, tummy tucks, supplements and so on, that age is winning after all. What we resist, persists!

In effect the Law of Attraction has been in action, because you are concentrating on fighting what you do NOT want!

The way to use the LOA in a way that would serve you better, is to embrace your ageing, and then you will find sychronisation coming into play, with people, articles, books and ideas that help you to be the best you can as you age. How to eat, how to be creative, learning, a new interest that will give you a boost in self-image, and expertise that you may not realise that you have and can help other people, teaching them using writing skills and the internet.

Being a wise old grandma or grandpa that children love to talk to and confide in, or the sort of parent that is a friend to your children. Gathering people around you that think like you. You are loved and you love them.

I recently went to a 90 year olds birthday party, and there were 14 wonderful vibrant people there. Not a sing-song in sight! Just stimulating conversation and healthy and attractive people, from the age of 60 onwards. Because she is attracting these people to her with her happy disposition.

So you see you can end up glowing, joyful and happy and enjoying the ageing process and seeing that actually ageing can bring wisdom and vitality.

Can you see the difference?

The Universal Laws are many. LOA is the most well known and most likely the one that you have heard about. In the following week or so I will be looking at how some of them can have an effect on you no matter what your age.

Fat is Good for Ageing Bodies!

 

 

berries-1024x300

So what do I mean by Fat is Good?

Fat has been demonised for over thirty years now. During the 1980’s this demonisation was taken up by the Food and Diet Industry, and big bucks were made.

Yet it has never been proved that fat was bad, with the exception of transfats, which are toxic.

Baby Boomers, those born between 1945 and 1965 were the ones who became convinced that the only way to keep weight off and be healthy was to eat low fat foods. Later generations then inherited the myth and our stores are still full of low fat or fat free products.

People are often shocked when they hear that fat is not so bad after all, and somehow they cannot bring themselves to enjoy higher fat products.

I probably need to add that its the combination of fat, sugar and additives that are damaging peoples health, so don’t go lathering butter on your bread or malt loaf!

It is worth knowing that because many of us who were sucked into this myth, are suffering the results with early skin problems.

Did you know that fats and oils are ESSENTIAL to the body. Fatty acids are building blocks just like protein is.

They are beneficial to our skin, vision, brain function, bone density and hormone production.

Make sure they are healthy fats, and that includes butter! Contrary to popular belief saturated fat does not go straight to our arteries.

There is so much information now, much of it is contradictory, the media confuse people too. Do the research yourself and find out.

You will find out more by reading my book about the politics of dieting and food.

Ageing and Calorie Restriction.

 

 

SodDieting

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B011L100OC http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B011L100OC

Today I thought you may be interested in looking at the positive side of calorie restriction.

If you follow my writings and books, you will know that I advise people not to count calories.

However what I do say is that we need to be aware of them.

There are some regimes around that encourage people to just eat as much as they like as long as they eat natural foods, without any additives, or processing and have been adulterated out of all recognition of how food was meant to be consumed by humans.

This is so true!

Many people find that once they do eat naturally they do not crave more food than their body needs, so the amount of calories that they consume is reduced automatically.

This will work if you have never had problems with bingeing, sugar addiction, or eating disorders.

1(For more on bingeing problems and the results that they can leave you with, you can obtain a FREE report from me without subscribing, by sending me a private email requesting one, I will return it to you with a promise to not keep sending you more emails. trishcherry734@gmail.com)

 

As we grow older, the body naturally reduces the appetite. So therefore we need to trust what our body is telling us, and eat less.

Simples!

We all have a source within us that is not being heard or listened to.

As history has progressed and we have moved further away from nature and that source, we are losing the ability to be aware of what our body actually needs.

Have a look at how aware you are as you grow older.

One way of telling if you eat too much is whether you suffer from indigestion!

If you eat a moderate amount of natural foods then this will not happen.

(However the body may be suffering from digestive disorders because of the abuse we gave them with the onslaught earlier in life, even if we did not binge, but simply ate the wrong foods. It is never too late to change that.)

So when you hear about restrictive intake of calories, just remember that the essential thing is to;

  1. Be aware of what your body is telling you.
  2. Only eat natural wholesome foods.
  3. Stay away from sugary, starchy, processed junk.
  4. Watch your portions.
  5. Stop eating when you are full.

Then the calories will take care of themselves without going to the extreme measures of plates full of nothing but leaves!

Sod Dieting, Just Eat!

 

SodDieting

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B011L100OC http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B011L100OC

So what is it about? Simply; the politics of dieting.

We all have policies that we live by. Much of the time we don’t realise how these politics rule our lives. Our own as well as the people we depend on. Government bodies as well as the food and diet industries.

This book is for readers who want to lose weight because they think that maybe a few pounds lighter would make a big difference to their lives.

People who are obese or grossly overweight, may find it useful too, but the author’s main purpose is to help the ones who go on diet after diet, and their lives are under the tyranny of the scales. Their mood changes from good if the scales are a few pounds down, to not so good if the number has gone up.

Many fall into a pattern of bingeing and starving, because of the physical malnourishment of very low calories. Just as many also fail to recognise emotional needs and use food as a substitute.

It is not a diet book, it is an informative and insightful one on how to eat a healthy diet and stay away from restrictive calorie counting and permanent hunger for the rest of your life.

It is a how-to book on avoiding the pitfalls that people can fall into with watching their weight.

The author is an expert, because after being a chronic dieter for over forty years, she has now found a way to be free from the tyranny of the scales.

But because of all the past abuse of her body with bingeing one moment and putting on 28 pounds at a time, then starving the next and losing it over and over again, her body is now rebelling and she can eat very little to maintain it.

The reason why she has put the proverbial pen to paper is because her passion in life is to get the message across to people that dieting is a road full of potholes and it is not easy to avoid them if you persist in going on one diet after another.

The secret is to find a way of eating that suits you, the individual, and not someone else’s idea of what you should or should not eat. There are no rules, just an idea of making up your own. To keep portions low, not let yourself get hungry and eat only nourishing foods.

She has written two other books along the same lines, and you will find the first chapter of Sod Dieting is repeated in “Design Your Own Diet” which is on Amazon Kindle.

If you are a chronic dieter, you will find yourself identifying with much of what she has said and experienced. So read and enjoy and learn how you too can escape the everlasting tyranny of the scales and the constant obsession with what to eat.

Patricia is now a Life Coach, specialising in Making Diet; History. Your history. She also helps people to stop bingeing on food that is not nourishing, but just simply adding weight by consuming “empty calories”

Then when you find your liberation, you too can help others in turn to make their dieting into history. Thus spreading the word that in all the time we have been dieting, obesity and food issues are worse than they have ever been.
