YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE (not a dumpster)
At what point did eating properly become so hard? My guess is when food companies starting caring more about price margins and stopped giving a shit about you. Feel manipulated and lied to? You should. These companies learned how to get into our heads and essentially make us crack addicts on garbage food. Especially in America, poison is wrapped up in a gift basket. Obviously, I'm exaggerating a bit, but it really frustrates me how the average consumer doesn't know what constitutes "good" or "bad" food. It definitely doesn't help that as we finally seemed to evolve and figure out the puzzle, these corporations also evolved and figured out how to cloak unhealthy food behind what was once considered healthy. It's a freaking "food" arms race! Because of this constant delusion of what we think of as "healthy", changing, or even thinking about changing how we eat can be overwhelming.
Americans are as obese as ever! It's been reported that around 40% of American adults are overweight/obese (the difference in the two terms is not important for now), yet there are more people working out in gyms than ever! So what the hell is happening here?!?!
Well for starters, the meat in your diet is not the problem (not that I am against vegans and vegetarians), like many propagated documentaries on food report. In fact, too many people think that going vegetarian or vegan is going to help them lose weight, but it probably won't. If you want to give up meat, do it for the environment, not your weight. Just look at a hippopotamus, a vegetarian (actually an herbivore if we are being picky with terms), and...fat. I was a legit vegetarian for 3 weeks and thought it would make me feel better, but it didn't. I actually ended up becoming a carbohydrate-tarian, and carbs, well they can really mess you up if not consumed properly. So you want some answers?! Read on...
