I don't wanna be negative or step on anyone's toes here... But I get fed up of constantly hearing on the news and TV etc all the negativity about everything we eat! Sugar is bad. Carbs are bad. Meat is bad. Dairy is bad. Gluten is bad. Processed is super bad. Fats are bad! Jeezus!
From everything being said you would think hey-ho, let's just live on green leafy veg then. But nope. Even they (and all fruits and veg) come up as bad too. Because they have all been sprayed multiple times with pesticides.
So you really can't win!
For me personally... I've lost a lot of weight eating all the fatty, sugary, processed, high-carb type foods we are constantly told to avoid.
I enjoy watching programs like The Truth About... I do. But I think it all goes a bit too far! Of course we all want to be healthier and eat foods that we enjoy without dangerous health side effects! But we only have so much control over what we choose. And not many of us can start our own farm! (I am currently trying to grow my own potatoes lol).
So I think it all gets a bit much and will drive us loopy if we take everything we read and hear as gospel! I for one am just going to buy the food I buy and enjoy it and do my part for my health by trying not to get obese again.
