so all my life I was told stuff like...
eggs are high cholesterol and bad
eating fat makes you fat - and low fat food and milk is better
antioxidants are good for you and free radicals are bad
salt is bad
whole grain cereals are better than husked white flour and grains are good for you
and brown flour is better than white
grains, bread and pasta are wholesome and good
fruit juice is concentrated fruit and good for you
artificial spreads are healthier than full fat butter
burnout exercise builds muscle and stamina and health better than gentler walking and occasional slot bursts of intense exertion
I could go on, for a while. seashell extract for joint pain? statins? muesli.. sugary "yoghurt"... beans... "health" breakfast bars...
all this stuff is either lies or exaggerations. some of it makes you ill.
much of it is based on lazy research or the profit motive.
I have started changing my diet and lifestyle. my blood pressure is more normal, I lost lots of weight. I have more energy, I have a clearer mind. a year into it I am completely convinced. I was lied to my whole life.
