I’m most definitely about as neurotic as they come. And as such, it’s hardly surprising an excellent piece from Sunday Times Style at the weekend (below) got me thinking a lot. It’s well worth a read.
What I’m finding is the more I’m learning about nutrition the more my opinion changes every single day – and the more I just can’t work out where I stand on a lot of things. Gawd help me once my four years of study at BCNH is up…
This article made me think about my current stance on a lot of (nutritional) things – and it’ll probably give you lots of insight into who I once was.
- I’ve never given intermittent fasting a go but my Twitter and Facebook feeds are awash with folks going down the 5:2 route
- I constantly wonder if the ‘pH solution’ really is the solution. And how my life without apparently acid inducing roast lamb and strong black coffee wouldn’t be worth living
- I saw the Pizza Express sandwich board outside their resto for their new gluten free menu recently. My thoughts were ‘oh, another one’
- I love Itsu. But their new low carb options have made me greedy – because last time I was in there I bought both the chicken salad AND the sushi. It was, in my defense, the day after the marathon mind you…
- Just why would you go to The Ivy for quinoa?
- I was surprised to find ‘Clean & Lean’ on a friend’s kitchen shelf recently – she 100% didn’t need it for fat loss but it was great to hear how she’d enjoyed cooking from it and really enjoyed the benefits of a diet based around more whole foods
- If I drink milk it’s always organic and full fat. I love cream, but not in my coffee, it makes it go cold. I once used to measure out a daily allocation of 250ml of skimmed to have in tea throughout the day
- I had a ‘heated discussion’ with a good friend over Sunday lunch a couple of weeks ago on Gwynnie and her new book – I’m not going there again
- This week I’ve actually thought about eating more raw food – as I worry I’m bashing the nutrients out with every steamed veggie I eat at dinner time
- I eat fat. Tonnes of it. Butter is awesome. I might as well bathe in olive oil. Never heard of the latter being bad for digestion
- I wish, more than anything, I knew what the ‘perfect’ diet was
- A London-based GP once turned me away from getting my vitamin and mineral levels checked, calling me ‘obsessed’ and ‘neurotic’…
- Telling your peers you have a ‘nutritionist’ is the new middle class badge of honour
- Can you think about food too much?
- I eat more meat than most, I’m currently trying to eat more and more fish
- I’ve thought so long and hard about the organic debate before
- I’ve never drunk soya milk (thank Gawd) but I did foolishly eat Quorn throughout my entire university years – except when I lived in France. The French are wise
- I hate that Paleo cuts out dairy. I love Duchy’s blue cap (cream on top) and gooey, stinky cheese
- Coyo is awesome. Several years back I would never, ever have touched coconut due to its high calorie content. Those days of counting are long gone
- I have no more than 2 pieces of fruit a day, homemade freshly squeezed orange juice on an occasional weekend makes me really happy; I put coconut water in my post work out shake
- My most regular breakfast is scrambled eggs
What do you eat now compared to say, five years ago?
