I know this is a question I’ve seen asked a lot, and I’ve been trying to find the answer to my own question on a few sites, but I’m having a hard time coming up with my own answer. I’ve written before about how I think food and nutrition should be considered one of the most crucial aspects of your wellness, but I don’t think it gets as much attention as it deserves.
First of all, the point of the food is to support your body. I also think you should give your body what it needs. When a person is starving, their body is not functioning correctly. When they have a full belly, they know they are well nourished.
If you look at a lot of the health and nutrition websites out there, you can find a lot of articles that say, “eat everything you want.” I dont think that is what most people want. I think it is more common to get a lot of advice about eating a lot of protein and a lot of fruit and vegetables. The problem is it gives people a false sense of satisfaction.
The problem with many diet programs is that they are very short-sighted. That is, they recommend exactly what you should be eating, but they leave out all the things you should be avoiding. You know the guy who has a diet that says eat 4,000 calories of protein and no fat? This guy is eating a diet that says he will only eat one meal a day with no fruit, veg, and protein.
This is why the concept of “taco diet” is so dangerous. It’s not that you want to eat tacos every day, it’s that you want to be able to eat a lot of them and feel good about it. A lot of times when you read diet books you find out that the author has a big list of foods that they recommend every time you read the book.
Well, yeah. I know that there is a big list of food to eat in a diet book. But the point is that these recommendations are based on what the author thinks the average person eats. These foods are all based on average people. What you eat is your own personal decision and you don’t need to eat that. I know that for a long time it was easy to just eat what you wanted to eat, but I’ve seen that trend shift in recent years.
Many diet books are not so much about what you eat as they are about what you should not eat. These books are a huge weight off of your shoulders when you have to make a decision on what to eat. In many cases these books are filled with diet tips that are not based on what you should eat, but on what you shouldnt eat. That’s the main reason why I dont recommend this book.
The truth is you dont really need nutrition books in your life, there are many places where you can get what you really want. For instance, if you have a favorite restaurant and want to go there on a regular basis, you’ll want to eat there. If you have a favorite cup of tea or a favorite store, you’ll want to go there. If you have a favorite TV show and want to watch it, you’ll want to watch it. The same goes with food.
If you don’t eat something, you will eventually get sick. The key is finding the right thing that you want to eat. There are too many options out there to list them all. Most of them are unhealthy, or just plain bad. So if you don’t want to eat it, don’t, and don’t get sick.
Just some food tips, there are plenty of unhealthy, crappy options out there too. Like fast food places. A fast food restaurant probably has one of the worst food you can imagine. You eat a few burgers and fries and you feel fine, but then you feel sick. You can also easily eat a hamburger and get sick, so you should probably stop now.
