Bad Food????

Sunday, August 07, 2011

WalkingGrandma got me thinking about this, Bad and Good Food? Chocolate is bad and Peanut butter is good? Coke is bad and apple juice is good? This sounds like something written by the federal government. check them in your tracker, Chocolate has less fat and calories then Peanut butter and I like it a lot better -you can make your own choice. Apple juice has 25% more calories and sugar then Coke, I don't waste my calories on either - would rather save them for a donut

A lot of the information they have been telling me for the last 60 years is bogus. How about empty calories? Look at your tracker, you need a lot of grams of carbohydrates, the body don't care if they came from whole wheat bread, a donut or a Coke.

NOTE: you also need a lot of other things So it is unhealthy to just eat donuts for a week. I suggest several fruits each day, and not the same ones every day. I suggest 3 to 5 vegetables each day and ten different ones each week, and some meat, both red and white

Just fit what you eat into the tracker, if the balance between carb's, fat's, and protein is right, and you are eating a broad selection of different foods none of the things you are eating is bad. If on the other hand you went 500 calories over, or had only one half of the minimum protein, that was bad, not the food, the choices you made

    Mike, I really like your blog, especially where yu said "if the balance between carbs, fats, and proteins is right, and you are eating a broad selection of different foods none of the things you are eating is bad. If on the other hand you went 500 calories over, or had only one half of the minimum protein, that was bad, not the food, the choices you made." Excellent point. You are helping me figure out how to do this!

    That hidden sodium is another one to keep track of. I am so grateful for the nutrition tracker.

Great blog!

    You are exactly right...it is all about balance. Too much of any one thing is bad even if it is good for you. Moderation is the key. If we see food as good and bad then we see ourselves as good or bad when we eat them. Food is neither good or bad, it is just nutrition. We need to get the best nutrition we can get for the calories we consume. Life is too short not to eat a little chocolate once in a while!

    Congratulations Red,
I use sweeter too, the risk is small compared to being 150 pounds over
