Can you live without pre-packaged foods? Dr. Oz brought Marie, a single mom of 3, onto his show. Marie is a microwave mom – microwave pizza, chicken nuggets, chicken cutlets… you name it, Marie buys it already packaged and microwaves it. Marie has 3 kids and her husband, Charlie, was one of the firemen who died for our country on 9/11.
Since the death of Charlie on September 11, Marie has gained 60 pounds. She now weighs 235 pounds, has a 45″ waist, and eats 85% packaged foods. Her Omega 3 level (the good calming fats that should be between 8-10) is 4 and her Omega 6 level (which is the inflammatory, angry fats that make you irritated if there is too much) is five times too high. She has hypertension with a blood pressure of 140/100. And guess what… she eats 85% packaged foods!
