Did you know there are competitive memorizers who compete in the World Memory Championships? The record-holder in the "names and faces" event memorized 195 names with faces in fifteen minutes. In the "speed cards" category, someone memorized the order of cards in a shuffled deck in under 22 seconds. I can barely recall my own cell number.
Such it is with this crazy food and nutrition and fitness industry. Good grief, you could drive yourself nuts trying to remember macronutrient ratios, and strength training splits, and what foods are considered good and what foods are considered bad, etc.
How about this? All food is just food. It has no emotional or moral component. It is just that, just food. It is not good or bad. It might be tasty or nasty or healthy or artificial, but at the end of the day, it is just food. No reason to obsess over every single ingredient and whether or not it is snubbed by the food Gods.
Eat for your body. Eat for your health. Eat for fuel. If you're hungry, eat. If you're not, don't. When you're full, stop. Drink water and move around a lot. Unless you're trying to get a Doctoral Degree and write a dissertation, you really don't need to make it so complicated. Follow your body's natural cues. Listen to it. It will tell you what you need.
And don't forget to remember to eat!
As always, make champion choices,
