Do you think there is such thing as “good” and “bad” foods?
I wouldn’t say there are good or bad foods as such, but there are foods that offer less nutritional value than others and aren’t as optimal for our health and longevity.
Foods that are considered “good” for us are usually whole foods, which are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre.
Foods that are considered “bad” for us generally contain a fair amount of fat, sugar and not many nutrients. These foods are generally more calorie dense and don’t keep us satiated (full) for long, making it easy to overeat.
Within our diet we want majority of our foods to come from whole foods but it is ok to enjoy everything in moderation. We shouldn’t be restricting ourselves of specific foods or food groups simply because they are perceived as “bad”. We want to be eating a variety of foods to get all of our nutrients.
Now, I’m not saying that you should be eating donuts, cake, lollies etc every day, I am saying that it is ok to SOMETIMES have these foods and that if you do have them you haven’t done anything bad and don’t need to punish yourself for it.
Remember, the most effective diet is a sustainable diet.
