diet myths and common sense

It's good to find a fellow blogger that is on the same wavelength about quality food (particularly on a tight budget) and unhelpful food advertising whose prime objective is profits.    Quill.com publishes an informative image which can serve as a reminder of the pitfalls to avoid. Click on the image for larger print! I recommend reading the full article on Dieting myths to avoid The

healthy diet and poverty

Unplugged from food corporations I've heard some alarming tales from friends who work with people trapped in poverty and debt. The worst cases, due to the tax and benefits nightmare orchestrated by successive governments, are all people working full-time. Usually, they are working so many hours that they find it difficult to make the best decisions about what to eat. Understandably, when

butter is better - whole foods beat profitable processed pap

The food corporation adverts would have us believe that margarine is cheaper than butter, and you can't taste the difference! Well I can taste the difference, and decided to do some simple arithmetic to test the truth of their claims: Facts: Maragarine ingredients: 1. WATER 2. sunflower oil 26% 3. Palm oil 4. linseed oil 5. reconstituted milk 6. salt 7. emulsifier 8. lecithin 9. sodium

easy steps to freedom

(tags: wisdom, freedom, advertising, alienation)  Thought for the day: Why does nearly everyone on the supermarket look confused, impatient, lost, oblivious to those around them? Why do they look angry when they get in their £23,000, black, 4 wheel drive, aggressive Shopping Trolley? examples: Because they have been taken over by advertising. Walking to the shop, buying what you

Olympics junk food taste test - learn to (enjoy) cooking!

There's an entertaining article about food corporations attempting to cash in on the 2016 Olympics, maybe because they believe we're daft enough to think eating advertised, processed, devitalised 'food' in front of the TV will turn US into Olympic athletes by some mysterious process of induction. The author is less scathing than me about fast 'food' outlets, probably because they aren't old

eating disorder psychology triggered by fad diet

The ever-growing (and conflicting) 'expert' advice about what to eat, and what not to eat, is now creating problems for women in their 30s, 40s and beyond. In 18 years specialising in “body dissatisfaction” psychology, clinical psychologist Louise Adams has never seen as many women of all ages with food issues; food anxiety is at epidemic proportions, thanks to the ubiquitous influence of

eating healthy on a budget

Recent shopping trips have made two facts very plain:  1. Many customers, much younger than I, look extremely physically unfit/unwell.  2. Many customers look and sound bewildered when deciding what to buy  They would be less vulnerable to the mischief of food corporations' TV advertising and packaging if they had a list. Even better if it is a " food for wellbeing on a budget" list !

walnuts and bananas beat advertised 'health' food

Some interesting health-related news today. Business as usual, really, in so far as the best foods don't advertise. In a (wal)nutshell, the message is - the best use for your multi-mineral and vitamin tablets is probably added to a compost heap, and walnuts, in moderation, are very healthy: Bananas Take One A Day VitaCraves Adult Gummy Multivitamins, for example. Right now, they’re on

sugar tax and corporations

Apparently, corporations are treated as 'individuals' - a ploy devised by corporate lawyers to gain the same protection by law as individuals are supposed to have. Like many laws, once it has been passed it is hard reverse, because the corporations are protected by that law from having it changed. In the news this week those people and institutions that want to save the vulnerable from life

supermarket luxury lies

Recently I was in a 'super'market to buy food, and looking through the muesli, to see if any of it was fit to eat. A fellow customer praised the item I was looking at, and the packaging did paint a rosy picture: Raisin, almond and Honey muesli. I read the ingredients and the analysis (I.e. the small print), and here are the facts: Contents: oats 55%, sugar unspecified, but more than 9%

Individual freedom versus corporations

I asked my pal in Illinois why the area he lives is so sparsely populated and yet Chicago (the nearest very big city) is bursting at the seams: "They move to the city for jobs, but ... Even the city jobs are few. America isn't what the rest of the world envisions it to be any more. I just read an article recently which said Americans need to realize that the 'golden' age of America is over.

healthy diet versus corporate fast food advertising

Yesterday, there was a report published, based on a single study from the University of East Anglia, relating high protein diet to improved cardiovascular health. The World Health Authority was quoted in the report, which raises the interesting question: who funds them, and what are their interests in business and the stock markets? In the most recent report, WHO funding was 80% from voluntary

Social media beats corporations advertising at supporting diet health

Social media beats corporate advertising at supporting a healthy diet Healthy diet requires ongoing affirmations and support to combat the onslaught of advertising from food corporations. Cheap ingredients in fancy presentation and packaging make more profit. Marty says - diet fads don't work. Many of them have people doing ridiculous things.

Sugar tax to fund healthy diet promotion v obesity

In this week's news the BMA (British Medical Council), representing Britain's GPs, called for a 20% tax on sugary drinks to limit the damage caused, especially to children, by heavily advertised low-nutrition drinks.  They made a case for using that income to subsidise fresh fruit and vegetables. However, fresh (and rapidly frozen) fruit and veg aren't expensive compared to even 'bargain'

Food, advertising and trying too hard for wellbeing

1. Fitness foods may give the false (subconscious?) impression that they are a substitute for exercise - hence making the purchasers less fit! http://bit.ly/1TbHG1B study author Jörg Königstorfer, chair of sport and health management at Technische Universität München in Germany. “Don’t rely on these misleading labels.” 2. Orthorexia nervosa, is emerging as a dangerous eating disorder.

Superfoods don't advertise (wellbeing, nutrition v corporations)

Abstract: Evidence based dietary guidelines contrasted with corporate funded science and corporate funded advertising. It is a scientifically tested fact that - other factors such as exercise, genetics, habits being equal - people eating a diet rich in antioxidants suffer less from heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and the degenerative diseases associated with ageing. This has led to
