Things happens when you do some research into the foods you eat. Some good things:
- You learn about the foods you eat
- You alter your diet
- You lose excess weight
- You get healthier
Some bad things:
- You give up foods that most people still enjoy — milk, ice cream, sugary desserts, processed foods, etc.
- You need to learn to enjoy new foods and new cooking techniques (this could be good or bad)
- You want to share your knowledge and as a result
- You drive everyone around you crazy!
In a recent post I talked about the serious health problems associated with drinking cow’s milk as a result, I have been eliminating milk from my diet. Switching to soy milk in my cereal has been relatively easy. But what about ice cream, yogurt and half and half for my coffee? That is proving to be a bit more difficult. (I know I should probably give up coffee too, but there is positive research about coffee and health).
As for driving everyone around me crazy, perhaps I probably shouldn’t refer to the little packets of Equal and Splenda as “poison” when a friend asks me to pass them across the table. And I’m pretty sure that if I post one more article about the dangers of sugar (like this one) I will lose a few friends! So, if you want to read a good article, by all means click on the link, and if you don’t, I won’t push it on you!!
