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!

2. Orthorexia nervosa, is emerging as a dangerous eating disorder. People start out avoiding some of the foods that potentially did them the most damage, but become overly concerned with ‘nutritional value’.

Five warning signs to look out for are given in the article at cheatsheet.com

summary as a tweet:

#OverThinking can be a curse when pursuing a #HealthyFood diet (Orthorexia nervosa).
Good food = #joy, pleasure, health and vibrant #colours.
regular varied #exercise is the perfect complement to quality food.

ENJOY 🙂

  1. I eat oatmeal 3 times a day. I mix in milled flax and wheat germ. As a side dish I eat 2 Kiwi. Kiwi is king for nutrition. Bran is also a mainstay as is raw honey. For protein I use unprocessed peanut butter. His Lordship makes his own…I on the other hand buy it because I am unworthy. 🙂

  2. That would Lord Howie of Troon. He invented peanut butter if I’m not mistaken. At first organic he later added chemicals to the peanut butter to help decrease the surplus population. I could be wrong about this but I read it on the internet and as such it must be true.

    1. He was an inventor and member of the House of Lords – very keen on engineering, but Peanut Butter seems to be an American invention …

      On a different theme – is there any truth in the rumours that Baron von Trumpenstein the 2manyeth has been having mini strokes (I mean the medical type; not what he pays dubious bimbos for …)?
