Healthy Eating …but who do we believe…Just Saying!

lady holding veggies

I try to eat healthy as much as I can…I  also like the occasional treat and why not???

I am careful about what I feed my family and my cooking methods and I do what I reasonably can… I check out things or products I am not sure of and make my own mind up as to whether I buy them or not.

I believe it is all about balance and not being fanatical as that just makes you miserable and laughter is good for you as well.

I know it is hard to check and there is a mine of information out there and some are very believable I will say…But I love digging and not just the garden and sometimes I get really frustrated and just save the links for another day when my brain is clearer…

What annoys me most and there is one in particular that when I see his name connected to a statement of supposedly valid, 100% true facts…I read, double-check and read again…I also came across and interestingly…and no I am not going to namedrop…I believe he has a regular tv show … But the other week I  was reading something which stated a fact and provided the name of the organisation which conducted the research… BUT… it wasn’t a clickable link..an error??? We all make those…Mmmm…

So  I copied and pasted the link…. yes there was a study and it totally contradicted the statement this doctor had made…

My conclusion was that he is very famous and a lot of people hang on to his every word and take it as gospel and wouldn’t click the link if they had been able to anyway…Total faith in his word.

Today I read a post that mentioned him, Two in fact …One interested me as it was the topic of a post I am currently writing… This is where the red mist took over… My husband always used to tell the kids it was “tin hat” time…lol

Real-life medical doctors have investigated claims made on this show and stated that not even half of the recommendations made were based on any proven evidence at all…Now that is scary..don’t you think????

Rant over ..normal service will resume with a smile with my next post and I promise I will research everything as much as I can but please..check for yourself…Promise me that… You owe it to yourself and your families…

Until next time…Stay safe, laugh a lot and ASK a question as always I look forward to your comments xx

    I suspect that we can’t assume that one-size-fits-all. People have different metabolisms and while certain facts are facts (such as homo sapiens requiring a modicum of B12 in its diet… do you detect a soapbox beneath me here?) our bodies may well prefer to deal with some foods than others that provide similar nutrition. It could be a matter of genetics, always assuming you’ve tried all the options available.
    I like to believe ‘a little of what you fancy does you good.’ What I fancy certainly makes me feel happier.
    (In that old saying, it’s the word ‘little’ that I sometimes find difficult to remember.)

      I suspect you are correct, Cathy and like me you have a soapbox.. Smile.
      A little bit of what you fancy does indeed do you good and most of the time I’m good at remembering that word “moderation” the other 20%… 😀 I enjoy and indulge myself 😉…

    I eat what I want to eat and pretty much ignore all the self-styled ‘experts’. The only cookery show chef I watch is Nigella Lawson, and I confess I watch that for Nigella and not the food! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

        I met her a few times when I was in the Ambulance Service and her first husband John Diamond had terminal cancer. She is actually a very genuine person in ‘real life’, as well as being incredibly attractive. x

      I know Sally…I am sure you do I have no doubt on that score I have always found your posts well researched. You have to now don’t you? …I was a bit angry when I wrote this as I had been researching a subject and the post obviously hadn’t and also quoted my favourite doctor( not)…I have calmed down a bit now…I just wish people would check before they write as so many people just believe what they read and don’t check.
