Real food, non-food and make believe real food – 1

In fitness, there is shit that is unpretentious, legit and badass…

Iron = awesome

Kettlebells work. Nough said.

Not much is better than lugging around and pulling serious weight!

And then there’s shit that is highly marketed, shiny and retarded!

Keep shakin guys. I’m sure you can squeeze something out of it.

So this does what?

Walk like a gazelle and do whatever the hell they do!

Same deal with nutrition… just that there are more camps!

The unpretentious, legit, badass “food”…

Meat, veggies and white rice – This!

Fruit and cheese – Aint nothing better than this!

Deviled eggs from heaven!

Then the highly marketed, shiny and retarded non-foods!

The pixeled heart is genius isnt it!

It is called ‘Good day’. Its gotto be good for ya! Don’t mind that the first two ingredients are sugar and flour btw.

Atta means wheat and wheat, obviously, meals health!

No pulp! And holy shit 50% less sugar!

And finally, the latest & greatest, new & improved, healthy & delicious, smart & stupid, make-believe real food…

Grain-free pancakes – Grain free alright. With that lump of butter and river of maple syrup on top, how exactly does the grain free help?

Meatza – If you want to eat meat… eat a freakin piece of steak!

Paleo cheesecake – Well, of course! If cheesecake is what you want, eat the real thing for Christ’s sake!

Whats my point? When you eat food… eat real food! When you eat junk… eat real junk! 

Why? ‘Cos if you’re eating junk only rarely, then you might as well eat the real thing and if your junk intake is frequent enough to try and make it healthy, then you’re in trouble.

I’m sure this will rile up a bunch but I do have a follow-up post or two on this topic anyways… so bring ’em on!

    What anti-nutrients does oats contain ?
    Quoted from wikipedia, “The most recent research indicates that some cultivars of oat can be a safe part of a gluten-free diet, because different varieties of oat have different levels of toxicity.[12] Although oats do contain avenin, there are several studies suggesting that this may not be problematic for all celiacs. “
