Food is just food, what makes it 'unheathly' is context and dosage.

A pizza is fine, a doughnut is fine, a tuna salad is just as fine.

In context.

As long as it's made with spelt flour.


So what label would Butter get v Margarine ? With one being natural and one being closely associated with plastic.

One of the main problems I see is the nutrition scientists moving the goal posts on food and it's effects all the time.

They are even saying Kangaroo could be bad for the heart now because of L Carnatine.

The majority of people know exactly what food is good or bad for them, they just choose to use that knowledge or not. Many just dont care or wont take responsibility for their health.

When discharged from hosp recently, a very obese lady was at the hospital doors with us, she said she had been in for 3 and a half weeks with a massive ulcer. The first thing she did was lit up a cigarette!!

You would have thought she would have grabbed the chance to have given it up, but nope. More shocking was this woman with chronic health probs from her weight and smoking was 23!!!!

Bad for the 'roo maybe

The problem is that you can find a study to prove almost anything in the nutritional field.

It's just fuel, what is 'unhealthy'? Anything in excess ... Water ... Avocado ... Goji berries ...

FFS - I pretty much only eat roo and chicken these days. I think I will stop listening to the experts and just eat what I want, when I fancy.

Twas reported here...

Which leads me to the same view as you. Eat what your comfortable eating. One of the biggest no no's for me is charred meat over open fire.... I can feel that doing bad things when I inadvertently ingest some.
