    Eating right is not a complicated science, evidenced by the simple dos and don’ts elucidated on here—if in doubt, stay mindful of the three golden rules: eat real food, in moderation, and mostly plants.

    Bombardment by food marketing, pseudoscience, nutritionists, and journalists makes deciding what to eat a daily source of anxiety and confusion for many people—and it needn’t be like this.

    Pollan’s impassioned plea for us to derive more pleasure from eating, along with the suggestions, guidelines, and examples he uses to illustrate his points, truly puts the Western diet to shame once and for all.

    Pollan traces the evolution of food, elaborating on when our focus began to be drawn to the nutrients contained within, and shines a critical light on many of the scientific practices involved in the cultivation and creation of so-called “superfoods”, as well as the consequences we face if we don’t question them.

    Think of the French lifestyle, where pleasure and rich (but real) food coexist in harmony without any of the guilt, anxieties, or life-threatening consequences for health that we often associate with the modern Western diet.

    When choosing what to eat, remember the three simple rules—real food, in moderation, and mostly plants—and you won’t go far wrong.

    The industry’s response to the fast food nation was to focus solely on the nutrients in food and push scientifically altered products into the market as alternatives, leaving people clinging to so-called expert advice for guidance on what to eat.

    With so much conflicting information out there, it’s not surprising that many of us are confused, even anxious, about what to eat.

    The pervasive influence of scientists, nutritionists, and food marketers can feel confusing, and their advice overwhelming and contradictory.

    Humans are not scavengers, yet often we eat like we are: on the move, in secret, in a hurry—whenever we can fit it in.

    But it’s incredibly easy to reestablish our personal relationship with food, to enhance that relationship, and to make the process of eating more enjoyable, meaningful, and memorable: all we have to do is eat meals and eat them at a table—with other people when possible.

    The demands and pace of modern life have altered not just what we choose to eat, but how we choose to eat it, too.

    And how often is dinner consumed in silence while we sit, exhausted, in front of a television or computer screen?

    How often is lunch consumed alone in exactly the same seat we spend our entire working day?

    Be honest with yourself: how often does breakfast mean quickly devouring a pastry on your daily commute, or just grabbing a coffee to-go in the car?

    Unfortunately, the time-honored celebrations of food—the rituals and traditions surrounding how we eat—have been largely forgotten thanks to the modern food storm.

    The French are one example, but this nominal paradox is equally applicable to Italian, Turkish, Greek, Japanese, Indian, or Mexican diets—to name a few—where eating a traditional diet appears to promote good health.

    Freshly prepared food carries none of the health risks of processed or fast food solutions that we in the West accept as the norm.

    It’s not without scientific reasoning—a diet like the French, high in lovingly prepared meals, fresh produce, tomatoes, garlic, cheeses, butter and oils has plenty of easily identifiable health benefits.
    Olesia Rogalevaцитирует5 месяцев назад
    Perhaps we can deduce that there are health benefits to actively relishing your food and making an occasion of it, rather than slipping into Subway on the commute home because you’re too tired to cook, or swallowing three spoonfuls of soup and calling it lunch because you don’t feel you have time to stray from your desk.
