Friday, December 1

I may have posted this video a while ago, but even if I did I think it's worth reposting. This is the hardest part of the year for many of us when it comes to nutrition, but we shouldn't overcomplicate it. Eat real food, not too much and get most of it from plants. That's what Ben Bergeron says in the video below and there's really not much more to it. 

We like to think it's super-complicated and technical, and that may be true if you're trying to reach a very specific goal, but for the vast majority of us, it's pretty simple.

Making it seem complicated just makes us feel better about making bad choices. It gives us an excuse to eat something that's not good for us and blame it on "I didn't know better." 

We know what's good for us. No one eats a pizza and thinks that it's healthy and nutritious. So let's stop fooling ourselves and start making the right choices on a daily basis. Eat real food, not too much and get most of it from plants.
