One twin gave up sugar, the other gave up fat. Their experiment could change YOUR life | Mail Online

One twin gave up sugar, the other gave up fat. Their experiment could change YOUR life | Mail Online.

read this this morning. in the debate about healthy eating, i think we have got the wrong end of the stick. we call this food is bad, that food is good.

So, what were our conclusions? If you want to lose weight it will be much easier if you avoid processed foods made with sugar and fat. These foods affect your brain in a completely different way from natural foods and it’s hard for anyone to resist eating too much.

And any diet that eliminates fat or sugar will be unpalatable, hard to sustain and probably be bad for your health, too.

Sugar v Fat on BBC2 tomorrow at 9pm. (quote from article)

i suppose it is one way of looking at it. 

i think that is the wrong way of lookng at it. all foods are good, it is the amount you take that is bad. moderation in all things should be the motto.

there used to be something called ‘a balanced diet’/  i wonder why no one mentions that anymore. it encapsulates a healthy way of life.

eat everything, but in moderation. i guess the argueing point is how much is too much. that would vary with different people i guess, but in the end, a rule of thumb may be this… leave the table still wanting more.

and eat when you are hungry and no snacking in between meals.

i think if u follow that u can ignore all these experiments with extreme measures.

One very important side effect of just eating enough and not bother with stigmatising this food is good or bad is that you stop obsessing about foodand you dont think dwell on it . i think if u think too much about food, it makes u hungry and want to eat.  like seeing adverts about food, it makes u hungry. Correction, not hungry, because you did not feel hungry before seeing the advert; but it makes u want to eat something, anything. haha.

    The Mail is never happier than when it is running diet articles. Maybe if they took away some of the articles they run humiliating ‘celebrities’ who gain half a kilo but are still relatively healthy that might help take some of the pressure off.
    I think you’re right that the truth is that processed food is addictive and so we eat too much.

      i know these articles about food is inane, but somehow i still get fascinated by them. the food tv programs cater to this too. i guess it is a human thing to be addicted to these food programs. i always come to the same conclusion, eat in mdoeration, after i see these articles or food programs, but i still continue to watch them. weird of me.
