No, it’s not goji berries
It’s not green tea (or that ‘detox’ tea stuff…as they’ll definitely be telling you about that in Holland & Barrett).
It’s not garlic.
Or Coconut oil…
And no, it’s not Aloe Vera…
Despite what they’ll tell you
Well, in my opinion
The problem has come from wannabe ‘nutritionists’ trying to apply the medicine way of doing things to nutrition:
“one drug treats this”
Now, this may “work” in medicine (I’m no expert in medicine by the way).
But “one food treats this” isn’t so straight forward in nutrition for the following reasons:
1) Different nutrients you eat in food compete for absorption (so one may impact how much you absorb of the other…This can be the case with iron levels which are important for your energy).
2) Certain nutrients taken together can enhance their absorption so you get more benefits (and more energy)
3) Eating a few “superfoods” won’t outdo your poor diet. It’s what you do on average that counts
4) Many of the studies on “superfoods” are in environments that are not the same as the human body…
as I explain here with garlic >>>
You see, you know has benefits with your immune system, right?
^^^ And it might make you a little gassy…
but some of these benefits were found in studies done in a lab NOT a human
Well, this equates to a human eating 28 cloves in a day (which you’re friends and family probably won’t thank you for).
^^^ Maybe we can hide all 28 of them in the pasta sauce?
You’re probably wondering what that superfood I was talking about is?
At just 39p for 200g – working out at 3.9p per serving – it’s….
Tomato puree…. as super as any of the other hyped up “superfoods” with some VERY LIMITED association with a reduction in blood pressure and certain cancers.
But if someone really wanted to
they could market it as a “superfood”…
move it to the “health foods” isle…
and we’d probably end up paying £3.90 per serving instead of 3.9p per serving…
So what I’m leading up to is this:
There are no “good” or “bad” foods as such..
but only “good” or “bad” diets…
You SHOULD be eating a diet full of nutritious WHOLE foods
Which can be ‘super’ in their own right
As part of your overall diet.
You see, if giving yourself PERMISSION to eat some chocolate as part of your daily diet
Helps you stay on track so you’re not deprived a emptying your treats cupboard at 10pm…
Then chocolate is ‘SUPER’ for you
Helping you build a diet to last
So you can ditch the baggy clothes – for good WITHOUT wasting money on crazy diets and supplements
