Agree. "Healthy" is such a vague term, and everyone seems to have their own personalized definition of "healthy."
Example of a supposedly "healthy" eater:
Breakfast: Nonfat milk (which spikes insulin) with a puffed breakfast cereal that claims "WHOLE GRAINS AS FIRST INGREDIENT!" even though it's Lucky Charms or Cocoa Puffs, and the whole grain is genetically modified corn...not much nutrients in corn in the first place. But let's say it's a more "healthy" brand of cereal like Rice Crispies or Honey Nut Cheerios (STILL spikes insulin levels because it's puffed and there's tons of sugar).
Lunch: A "healthy' lunch plus dessert at Kentucky Fried Chicken...with a diet Coke of course! (There's nothing healthy at fast food restaurants)
Snack: Pretzels or crackers or "REDUCED FAT" chips. (All of these are high glycemic and will spike insulin levels..."reduced fat" means that they've added something else that's pretty funky...olestra anyone?)
Dinner: A few slices of cheese pizza...that's "healthier," right? It's just cheese, hold the meat. It's gotta be healthier, come on. And "REDUCED FAT" cookies for dessert. (Sorry, cheese pizza is loaded with saturated fat and unhealthy oils...where's the veggies and fruit in my example? And "reduced fat" cookies means they've loaded them up with extra sugar)View Thread
