With all the diet fads and tips out there these days I wonder if I’m missing the boat. I hear things like, gross I can’t believe your eating that, and ick do you know what they put in that. So I sat down the other day and imagined life without an occasional cheeseburger or French fry and it looked pretty boring.
Not to offend all you grass fed, health food, supplement taking, I gotta try this latest fad diet or I’ll die people. I am not knocking you or you’re ways, cause I have been there and done that, but in the long run the fads never last. I’ve tried it all and in the end I went back to eating regular stuff that normal everyday people eat. Maybe not in the same portions and maybe with a few changes here and there, but basically the same food. As time goes by I have noticed that each new fad diet comes with a larger and more restrictive set of requirements. Some are so restrictive its ridiculous to think that anyone but a few could sustain the diet for a short time let alone for life. For example what ever happened to the last fad diet Atkins? I really don’t hear about it much, not saying it doesn’t exist in some form or other, but it’s not the latest rage. I remember going to dinner one night with my brother, who was on the diet, and we ordered a pizza. When he got his slice, he pulled all the bad stuff like cheese, grease, pepperoni and sausage off the pizza and ate that! He discarded the crust, saying that the carbs were bad for you. Well I’m no nutritionist but that just sounded whacky. He sort of explained that too many carbs, when not used, could make you fat. My naïve thought was that he had just cut out the middleman and had ingested straight fat.
