I mentioned yesterday that eating healthy is complicated. Some people even disagree with that. “People seem to disagree on everything and even health professionals seem to constantly contradict each other. But it doesn’t have to be this complicated…what is most important is to just eat real food.” (http://authoritynutrition.com/healthy-eating/)
That is a good place to start—eat real food. Real food is food that hasn’t been processed in any way. Most experts will agree that eating vegetables is healthy. Okay, that sounds easy, but for dieters, it’s not. What about potatoes? What about beans? What about organic verses non-organic. What about canned or frozen? You see what I mean?
Then there are fruits. Eating real foods involve eating fruits and vegetables. But the question is how much fruit? Which fruit is okay? What’s the deal with fructose? Does an apple a day keep the doctor away? Don’t eat bananas. Watermelon is high on the glycemic index.
Maybe the more you know the worse it is. I guess we have to remember that we are talking about a diet—weight loss diet. So what is healthy and helps me lose weight?
