Seriously…why are there like 18,002 theories on what it means to eat healthy? I’ve watched 6-7 different documentaries on Netflix, read 4-5 different books, looked at countless websites and it’s just mind-blogging! Doctors disagree. Nutritionists disagree. Everyone disagrees.
Some have said that God never intended us to eat animal products. Others would say that He has given us every good thing and surely, bacon is a good thing.
Some have said high-fat diets are fine – provided the fats are “good” fats and not a man-made chemical (think real butter vs. margarine spreads).
Some have said to focus on veggies, veggies, veggies for all your nutrition needs and you don’t need meat at all. Others would say that might be a nice idea, but highly impractical and it just doesn’t work out that way.
Some say that humans are not baby cows, so why do we drink milk from cows as if we were? Others would say that dairy is a super food, great for us.
Some say that carbohydrates are needed and good and just get them from whole wheat sources. Others would say that they are largely empty calories, proving few nutrients for the calories that they provide.
H-O-L-Y B-U-C-K-E-T-S! Who to believe?
