Diet & Nutrition
I’ve known that Carbs and Sugars are the major (of not the only) ingredients that can make you gain weight, but I didn’t want to believe that subtracting those two from your diet could completely screw with your body’s homeostatic balance.
Ever since a friend of mine posted a documentary video that is in response to the famous “Super Size Me,” documentary 6 months ago - I’ve been rethinking the way our society has been spoon-feeding us on how to eat ‘healthy,’ and man….it’s very upside-down.
The Documentary “FatHead’ is on Youtube, if you want to get brainwashed. lol
Supersize me is about a dude that eats fast food for a month, and gains weight…Fathead does the same thing (with a bit of restriction) for a month and eats fastfood and loses weight.
It’s an interesting documentary. I got the idea within 15 minutes, but what got me is the historical and scientific facts and idea that goes with why things are not what it seems. knowing those facts was easier for me to restrict the carbs/sugar in the foods I eat, knowing a little bit of the history behind it. Before then, rice, bread, and soda(omg soda…yum) was something I couldn’t resist…now I eat it sparingly.
A few other notable reads/books since I watched the movie were
Good calories, Bad Calories
Why we get Fat (Both by Gary Taubes)
What seems healthy may be the foods that are causing us to gain weight, and what we believe is making us fat, may be the foods that are actually healthier and less destructive to our bodies.
