Coach Nicole posted this article on her Twitter feed and I thought it was pretty interesting. A kick in the arse!

    Great article! thanks for sharing! my two cents emoticon :
    1. Yes, of course there is junk food. pre-packaged sweets and treats that are full of trans fat and won't expire? um yes. I don't believe however that we should view food as black/white good/bad but rather focus on ones that are more beneficial.
    2. I agree with his assessment of moderation. Everyone interprets it differently and it can justify including more treats and unhealthy items because hey, its not a full binge--it's in moderation!
    3. I personally get a red flag myself whenever someone says they are a healthy eater or they eat healthy. I always think, whose standards? What is "healthy" anyway? lots of things to consider here that basically the term has no meaning to me.
    4. Actually not sure what point he's trying to make here. I agree that just downsizing your fast food portions is not the best option. Nor is, according to him, the new norm of microwaving dinner and getting takeout a few times a week as long as portions are controlled (maybe because that is so foreign to me does that not seem reasonable at all...)But you do need to be realistic in what will work for you. Most people cannot be satisfied eating broccoli and brown rice, especially coming from a really processed/poor diet. Its about finding ways to make small changes and trying healthier things
