but first! PaleoFX is this weekend and I’m pumped….gonna be so many awesome people and so much good info to be had.
Perhaps the most telling thing I have as “evidence” for what the general public considers to be a healthy diet is my 12 years of experience at trader joes, where whenever I have a customer who is buying lots of whole wheat, quinoa, vegetarian food stuffs, and is devoid of meat I ask them “are you vegetarian?”, and if they are they say yes….but the telling part is at least 75% of the others reply with “no, but I really TRY to not eat much meat. Y’know, trying to be healthy”
I reply with “of course” while noting their candies, chips, and pastas. Then I take a sip of hot butter coffee/bite of beef jerky/handful of dark chocolate macadamias.
Everyone on here (the net) arguing what is bad…we all agree that processed foods are bad…be it because of the crappy fats, carbs, or mystery science food stuffs. The thing is y’all…like Sean Croxton says, JUST EAT REAL FOOD. That packaged pasta shit isn’t real food. That tofurky for sure isn’t real food.
Let the internet specialist/expert circle jerk party of arguing continue while the general public remains woefully ignorant of the fact that the USDA/ADA/AHA diet guidelines are bad news, as are most media stuff. It’s coming around, and the bestest ways we can spend our energies is by putting out good info, and working in the trenches instead of arguing online with the same people repeatedly.
