An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
This blog is written by someone who enjoys good food, strives to eat real food, but prefers less intricate recipes. I do enjoy sophisticated dishes, but prefer them prepared for me, not by me. I spent decades eating processed food and huge portions. Fortunately I learned how important eating REAL FOOD is for our health.
This blog is to help remind those who already know healthy eating is imperative and to teach those who don’t.
The blog is an exploration of my own struggles with food and sugar addiction.
I am not a writer, I certainly am not a chef. I am a physician, a wife, a parent, a friend, an athlete, and a lover of food.
I am frustrated with patients who don’t realize how much their diets affect their health. I am frustrated by what parents feed their kids. And I am super frustrated with our health care system (or ‘disease treatment system’). I hope to teach people about REAL food, CLEAN food, GOOD food, and to transform our diets, our minds, and ultimately our health.
You may not like what this blog has to say. At times it may be brash, and the humor a slap in the face. It’s meant to be funny, not to offend. Get over it and get in to your local health foods store or farmers market.
1) Most Food is Garbage and
2) There is no secret quick trick to long term weight loss
Ok, maybe the regular use of heroin or crack results in rapid weight loss. But have you ever seen a crack addict’s dentition? Not pretty. Actually the word “crumbly” comes to mind.
Fad Diets don’t work. Most are nearly impossible to adhere to, and, like the parachute pant, every new craze eventually fades out.
Technically, our “diet” is the foods we eat regularly, not the avoidance of particular foods for short term weight loss.
The silver lining is: You dont need a fad-diet. All you need is a little effort and a load of knowledge. You need lifestyle changes. Tips, tricks and tools you can use slash calories, stay full, melt fat and out wit cravings. And you’ll feel better. You’ll actually transform in to something better.
