OK, so let's face a few facts about the food that's widely available. Vending machine "food." Restaurant food. A lot of grocery store food. Food on television commercials. Food prepared on the Food Network.
The food sucks. And it sucks bad.
If it's high in sodium, your food sucks. I have not busted my hump for over a year and slowly worked my way off of several medications just so I can eat something that has thousands of milligrams of sodium in it.
If your food is super-high in fat, it sucks. And I am not a fat nazi. There is such a thing as healthy fats. There is such a thing as reasonableness. But really? Some of these fast food meals are OUTRAGEOUS. It's not food, it's slow-acting poison.
Or how about the food in the vending machines. 600 calories for a honey bun? Are you serious? That's as many calories as in my entire breakfast. And I get a bowl of oatmeal, a banana, scrambled egg whites. Sausage patties. What are you eating? Garbage.
And delivery pizzas? More slow-acting poison. It all sucks.
It's not so much that the food is bad for you or that it is high in fat, calories and sodium...it's just that YOUR FOOD SUCKS.
The quality is bad. You're not getting anything in return for the hit on your waistline. The food just sucks.
There is better food to be had, but you're going to have to make it yourself. At least you'll know what you put in it.
