“Public health guidelines, food pyramids and plates, high-fat, low-carb, vegan, vegetarian, low-GI, high-protein, low-sugar, low-fat, low-cholesterol, Paleo, Atkins, fruitarian, alkaline, blood type diets, raw foods, fasting, cleanses, detoxes… it’s a minefield of weird and wacky, contradictory nutritional information and dietary advice out there.”
So where do you turn? What is right and what is wrong? We’ll just as Kate Skinner stated, when it comes to nutrition the world is filled with many contradictory “do’s & don’ts” pulling you in every direction. For every article promoting one theory there are ten more declaring hogwash!
I enjoyed reading Kates Blog on fine tuning your b/s radar when it comes to nutrition. Brief as it may be, it is spot on. Your body knows best.
“L-i-s-t-e-n to your body. If you’re legitimately craving salt or sugar (gasp!) but avoiding sweet and salty foods like the plague, question the physiological reasons for your natural cravings. If you’re loading up on supplements in your quest for nutritional nirvana then you might want to think about if and/or what your diet is actually lacking, and whether it’s possible to correct any issues without popping a nutriceutical (or many). Really want to jump on the ‘detox’ bandwagon? Educate yourself about how your liver functions to naturally ‘detoxify’ the body each and every day, without the need for some wacky cleansing routine (besides, going on a ‘detox’ suggests an initial ‘tox’ or post-detox ‘retox’, no?). If you’re choking down vast quantities of Brussels sprouts and broccoli daily because of their on-paper nutritional profiles, at the cost of a whole lot of digestive grief, maybe, just maybe, they’re not the best foods for you. Trust your gut – quite literally!”
