” The cardiologist’s diet: if it tastes good, spit it out.”~Author Unknown
If a food tastes good you are more likely to overindulge and eat a whole lot more of that food. Too much of anything isn’t good for your health. This usually goes double for any food that tastes good.
We as human beings are hardwired to search for fatty foods. That is why fatty foods taste so darn good. Our ancestors had to work their butt off to eat something fatty. Fatty food was the way they could survive cold winters and grueling physical labor.
But in our modern times we don’t need any more to worry ourselves with surviving and having all the energy needed. And ironically fatty foods are all around us. We live the life only kings and tribe leaders could live a couple hundred years ago. We are kings and queens getting fatter and fatter. If you look at old painting all royalty is depicted as being fat. Being fat was a status symbol.
Today being fat is a health hazard. All cardiovascular diseases are liked to being overweight or obese. Fatty food tastes good but it is slowly killing you. Cardiovascular diseases are the number one killer in the United States and in many highly developed countries. The tasty fatty foods so readily available are the main ally of all cardiovascular diseases.
Now if you love eating fruits and vegetables and they taste good for you keep eating them. And please tell me how did you do it. How did you make healthy food taste so good for you. But as a rule of thumb that most of us can follow is the better it tastes the fewer bites you should take. This is a good rule that I try to life by. Sometime I fail, but I away pick myself up and I struggle to leave at least something tasty in my plate at each meal. It is hard to do and maybe that is why it gives me so much persona satisfaction. You should try it too.
