"If you're not healthy, it's your fault. Not McDonald's."

I love that. But at the population level, there's a lot more to it. Which the article does point out.

"Food choices are not all that complicated. You just need to eat less, move more, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, and go easy on the junk food." --Quoted for truth.

My current pet peeve: fruit juice. Sure it healthier than soda, but just barely.

Hey, the local paper got something in Health and Fitness right. And amazingly, it was written by one of the CJ writers too, not an AP pull. When the H&F section comes out on Thursdays, I make sure to thumb through it to get my chuckles...makes the comics seem downright boring.

Nutritionists like to keep us confused about makes for good business. I have a feeling the body will naturally regulate macronutrient ratios to the proper levels if people stuck to whole, unprocessed foods: meat, vegetables, nuts, fruits, tubers, good oils (like olive, coconut, and palm). If one eats from those "food groups," one will likely be quite healthy and living at a 90%+ level. But simplicity doesn't keep people coming back and trying new diets and paying $100/hour.

Read "Burn the Fat: Feed the Muscle" by Tom Venuto. Most of the book is him ripping on supplement companies and diet "gurus" for stealing our hard earned money. It's a really really good book by the way.
