Overcoming Restrictive Eating Patterns
Surrounded by abundance and choices in today's world, sticking to black and white rules for decision-making can seem very alluring (unless you have a strident inner rebel). However, especially in the bottomless rabbit-hole of nutritional research, it's hard to find a single statement that is uncontroversially, undeniably 'true' in all cases and for all people. The only two that I can think of are that trans fats and high fructose syrup both are harmful to health. And of course, when it comes to food, the nutritional bottom line is only a small part of the picture. There's no getting around the fact that we're wired, and raised, to appreciate particular flavors and textures, as well as the social aspect of eating. Paying attention only to the 'fuel mix' is likely to be at least somewhat stressful long term, which isn't good for us either.
