Diet means something different to everyone. Your idea of a healthy diet may be totally different from mine. TV commercials constantly tell us something is bad for us and then it’s good for us. Coffee is a good example of this. We have so many different interest groups and testing healthy eating is difficult to interpret. The sugar industry wants us to believe all sugars are the same. They are not! Some sugars (like cake and candy) rush into our bodies, overwhelm us and can lead to diabetes. Others sugars like in fruits are mixed with fiber which causes them to be introduced at a very slow rate. Are bodies are use to this type of sugar. We are marketed to eat only processed foods. Why, because there’s a lot of money to be made there. Processed foods loose natural ingredients and have bad elements added for taste or to preserve the food. The only real natural way to eat is the way Mr. & Mrs. Caveman ate. They ate no processed foods. They ate a lot of nuts, fruits and vegetables because they were relatively easy to find and didn’t fight back. Meat was occasional since we probably got eaten more than we ate other animals. How do you eat? Are you really eating healthy?
