My three favorite rules from this part of the book are:
1. Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food.
2. Avoid food you see advertised on television.
I know the food on commercials sometimes looks yummy and delicious but when was the last time you saw a commercial for spinach or apples?
3. Eat foods that will eventually rot.
One of my students is a nutrition teacher at a dental school. She told me every year when she teaches her students about junk food she brings out a hamburger and fries that she bought over 10 years ago. She keeps it on her filing cabinet all the time and every year when she brings it out it hasn't gone bad and looks exactly the same as when she bought it.
Question of the Day: What is one food rule you are trying to follow right now?
I am working on not having or wanting dessert right after lunch. A few months ago I stopped having any dessert after dinner but now I'm working on lunch. :)
