What not to eat.

I’ve  seen  a few  lists on  the internet and I  have Opinions.  Here are my  thoughts.  Sadly, I  am  not  in charge  of  the world, or a nutritionist,  or a  scientist; so  my  opinion  only  counts if  you  want  it to count.   I  don’t  really  care  what  you  eat.   Yes,  you  can  complain about  you  weight and  eat  ice cream.   Just  don’t  do  it  at  the same time,  enjoy  you ice cream.

1)  Fast  food.

I’ve  eaten  fast food  2x in  the last 3- 6  years.  most of it isn’t  that  tasty.   And it is gigantic  amounts  of calories  that  are  not  really  balanced in  the  nutritional  sense.  and I  swear  there is something in  the food  that makes  you  crave  it It  is odd   that  the more  you  eat  it  the more  you  want it.

2)  Over-processed  food.

the  definition of  processed – is  sort of interesting – because  chopping  up  a veggie is processing  it.  So  lets  just  say  stuff  that is very  shelf stable  because  it  has lots  of  extra  stuff in  it.   Or  added colors.   or  neon  colors. I’ve  read a bunch of  articles  that  suggest preservatives and some of  the other food additives  cause inflammation. Asthma,  diabetes, and heart disease  all have inflammation . Yes  I  eat  Doritos  and Pringles – but   don’t think  I  should.

3)  added  sugar.

I’m  not  talking  cakes  and pies  and cookies – you  know what  they  are.   but peanut butter  and beans?   they  don’t  need  it.  Cutting  out  added  sugars – will , over  time ,  reduce  your sweet  tooth.

4)  artificial  sweeteners.

They  taste  bad.   And the research  on them  puts  all kinds of  things  like – messing with your glucose  levels,  inflammation, and cancer.   And even  if  they  didn’t  do  anything – they can increase  your  desire for  sugar.

5)  things  you  don’t  like.

Seriously, If  you  are not a veggie  eater, find a  few to eat  and add some fruit. Throw  some chopped  spinach in your spaghetti sauce.   Be  a grown  up  and figure  out  how to  get some nutrition in  your  diet

but if you  hate  Kale-  don’t  eat  it.   Those  really  sad  danishes from  the grocery  store – that aren’t  really  good , don’t  eat  them.   don’t  like  beef  , don’t  eat  it.   Eating food  you  don’t  like can  lead to  overeating because  you  aren’t  satisfied and  sometimes if  you  don’t  really  like something your body  is  saying something .

What  should  you  eat?   Good,  tasty  food.  Prepared with  care , not  corporation.  Organic   when  you  can.  As  close to  a  natural  state as  makes  sense.  and always  with  enjoyment.
