Did you know that eating oatmeal is not a healthy way to start your day? That milk does not build bones, and eggs are not the devil?
Even the most conscious of us have a hard time figuring out what to eat to lose weight, stay fit and improve our health. And who can blame us? When it comes to diet, there is so much shifting and contradictory information flying around that it’s impossible to know where to look for good advice. And decades of misunderstood “common sense”, business lobbying, bad science and corrupt food policies and guidelines have only amplified our crisis of business confusion, leaving us overwhelmed and anxious when we go to the grocery store.
