This weeks topic is health
We spend a lot of time as nutritionists undoing dieting mentality, teaching people you can include all the foods you love (you can but just not all at once)
I’m just a little worried that the health message is getting a little lost along the way
As with most things people seem to love extremes - we’ve gone from clean eating where nothing short of squeaky clean non processed food only is consumed to a bad interpretation of IIFYM & the pop tart brigade.
In reality a diet somewhere in the middle with the balance towards the majority of your foods coming from a more nutritious source such as lean proteins, veg, fruit, whole grain carbs, dairy, pulses & legumes etc & the rest from the foods you just enjoy nutritious or not.
80/20 or there abouts is not a bad approach.
