Has anyone seen the ad on TV by the producers of high-fructose corn syrup? Just what the gullible public needs.
Oh yeah, then there's the ad that presents dinners you pop into the microwave as a healthy choice for families on the go and a way to promote time together around the dinner table. What about all the preservatives and salt these "healthy" meals no doubt contain?
Another article that a must-read from my favourite American newspaper, the NY Times:
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/23/health/23real.html Yes, dear, you really should eat more slowly.
I'm somewhat taken aback by how many bloggers constantly mention brand name foods. Does this mean people can't eat meals that they put together themselves because they can't calculate the calories contained in home-made anything? Just asking. And can't people just eat at a restaurant without downloading the calorie count of every menu item? Can't you just leave some food on your plate? (See: fear of food!).
I desperately want to answer two posts, one by Jack Sh*t on fear of food, and the other by Diane on fat acceptance, but right now, I need to take a relax break and then get to work on preparing a couple of conferences that are coming up way too fast.
I shall return...
