Wouldn't it be great if all the health and fitness experts and quasi-experts and wannabe experts agreed? Wouldn't it be great if the advertising and packaging of food promoted healthy eating and every exercise plan safely built muscle, flexibility, cardio fitness, etc.? Wouldn't it be great if every person who tried to get fit did not waste money, time, and energy on plans that aren't healthy and/or don't work?
Well, we don't live in that world. And maybe we really wouldn't like it anyway -- I mean, freedom of speech and all that. But given our world, we have to evaluate food we eat and the fitness activities we choose. SparkPeople gives us a great deal of good information. I'm thankful for one voice that doesn't seem to have any other agenda than trying to help us get healthier and achieve our goals. Yet there are still times I wish the path to optimum health and fitness were clearer.
