If you can sort out what's true about nutrition, the causes of obesity, the ins/outs of sugar addiction, fat consumption: is it good or bad, what types of grain are good to eat, if any, then please weigh in. I find going to the grocery store a purely painful process, as much for my thin pocketbook, as for what's healthy and what's not. I find it reprehensible that GMO foods aren't labeled. I want to avoid not only GMO, but companies campaigning against labeling. How can this even be an issue?!
I've cut out most all breads, most all of the time, but I forget all the reasons why. I know I started thinking about bread differently when I read about human hair as an ingredient that came under the name L-cysteine. Google it if you don't believe me.
"Traditionally L-Cysteine is produced from feathers, pig bristles and sometimes even human hair. These days L-Cysteine can also be produced synthetically but apparently human hair remains one of the richest sources of this amino acid – it makes up about 14% of your hair - and there is a small industry in China making the additive from hair clippings."
Some schools of thought recommend cutting out most fruit because of the sugar. How much fruit is healthy? The debate rages on. Who am I to believe?
Off and on I work to stay away from sugar. Right now, I'm in the stay-away-from-it phase. In fact, this whole post began all about sugar addiction. I just know that the less I eat sugar, the less I crave it. I've also read many articles about the negative affects of it. But if I could feel good about eating it, I'd eat some every single day. Clearly, it IS addictive.
