truckers are getting sick
(Baton Rouge, LA)
In the last 2 weeks I have heard three drivers talking about how sick they were.
1 truckers called in to a talk show on a separate occasion another driver called in to a radio station where both times the conversation was about eating healthy.
Basically telling people that they should eat more fruits, veggies and fiber and less meat, soda and sweets.
Both people developed diabetes which of course is highly likely from the food that they were eating and sodas they were drinking.
I know alot of you are going to say it may have been passed down threw the genes. The drivers never mention that a parent had it, but they did mention that the doctor told them to stop eating the junk and stop drinking sodas.
The other trucker called in to a radio show. He had a stroke from high blood pressure. Of course he said he was told by the doctor to stop eating junk (my words).
He was just calling in to testify also advising all listeners to develop healthier eating habits.
This year so far, I would say I have heard at least 3 people on the CB testifying to the same things. One trucker was saying that he passed out in the truckstop parking lot, I can't remember exactly I think he said his blood sugar was up too high or something i forget now. What I remember is the same advice
from the Dr. He said the Dr. told him he had to change his diet or he would basically ruin his life (my words again)
I think most of you don't take me serious when i drill in the fact of how important it is to maintain a healthy diet and get some exercise.
I will tell you again, my blood pressure and cholesterol were high enough that they gave me medication for both and told me to take it immediately.
I never opened it. I just changed my diet completely.
Now both are in normal range and it took about 6 months to get it there.
That was a lot cheaper that buying medicine or paying for medical bills, it's also a lot healthier.
Now mind you, I never looked or felt sick, used to work out in the day. I just ate whatever. Only gained 50 lbs over 20year and everyone said I looked fine. Didn't need to loose weight as far as appearance goes to them.
Still the food that you eat has a serious impact on your body. Eat right and you will feel better. I rarely get a cold or other problems except allergy reactions every now and then.
So just thought i would drill this stuff into your head again.
Hopefully, it will take for some, the others will probably wait until they develop an illness or gain 150 lbs.
I hope not.
Oh and drink water.
