Kelly Osbourne's Got It All Wrong!

Just like so many people, not a clue.
When interviewed, Kelly said, "I want to eat whatever I want. It's all about portion control."
Wrong, wrong, wrong. What she says is a contradiction. You can't eat whatever you want if you have to watch how much you eat!
There is a saying, "You are what you eat." So if you eat junk, what does that make you?
Even if you watch your portions, if you eat unhealthy foods, you are taxing your organs by putting unhealthy fat, cholesterol, sugar/sweeteners, salt, preservatives, artificial this, artificial that, etc. through your body. If you eat and drink unhealthy you are not promoting your longevity, it is just the opposite- you are risking shortening your life.
Want pain, disease, pills, and doctor's bills when you are elderly?

If you make healthy choices, called a "prescription for nutritional excellence", you don't have to watch portions. You can eat all the healthy food you want (prepared in a healthy way) and arrive at your ideal body weight over time.

Combine healthy eating and drinking with regular exercise for the optimum healthy lifestyle.

We have been duped into believing that we need animal foods for good health- meat and dairy. Wrong. In fact, food from animals is nutrient poor, and has substances that promote disease- cholesterol, saturated fat, growth hormones, cancer promoting preservatives, etc. There is no colon scrubbing fiber in food from animals. There is only fiber in plant foods.
Meat eaters have animal foods remain in their colons for months or longer- a major contributor to colon cancer.

The key is education as to what is healthy and what is not. 3 words: Eat For Health- a 2 book set which will teach you what is healthy to eat and drink and what is not. Buy on Amazon.com or drfuhrman.com

There is so much misinformation out there. Be someone who "gets it". Read Dr. Fuhrman's Eat For Health, any of McDougall's books at drmcdougall.com, or read my blog entries from day one.
All the information on this blog re diet is right from two of the best nutrition doctors in the world. It is the truth about what is healthy, and what is not.

There's another misconception- that healthy food doesn't taste good. Wrong again. Healthy food tastes great. It tastes better than unhealthy food. When you wean yourself off of sugary, salty, fatty/oily foods, the natural healthy sweetness and subtle wonderful tastes of healthy food will amaze you.

To be your best, eat the best. Eat a plant based diet.
