We need to eat, the problem is that many of us are eating food with little nutritional value, packed full of additives, preservatives and flavourings which instead of providing us with what we need to survive are actually making us ill.
Supermarket aisles are packed full of ready made, convenient, quick and easy foods filled with ingredients to make them last longer, taste better and cook more quickly, however, little of what is in these foods provides your body with the fuel it needs to function and many of them cause unpleasant side effects.
The recommendations of what is good for you and what is not are constantly changing and there are so many different diet plans available that eating really has been made much more complicated than it needs to be.
The pace of life, technological advances and means of socialising have also evolved all having an impact on the types of food available to us.
Now of course we have to move with the times, it’s not practical to go hunt a cow every time you need to eat. It might not always be possible to eat clean when visiting friends, out for dinner or at a party. There probably will be times when temptation overpowers you and you find yourself reaching for the take away menu or eating the kids easter eggs.
Personally I think this is ok, I don’t think you can go wrong with a balanced diet of real food the majority of the time and allowing yourself a blow out occasionally.
