The Magical Food

It seems that every day brings a new study telling us to “eat this, not that.” Well, today is no different, but I am happy to jump on this particular bandwagon because I am a big fan of today’s golden food…yogurt!

According to TIME magazine, a study from Harvard researchers says that it is the quality of the food rather than the calorie count that really matters. I couldn’t agree more with this statement. People, women in particular, tend to get sucked into the fad diets, cutting all sugar, all carbs, eating only meat, only vegetables, no fruit. These restrictions make people obsess and are therefore more likely to fall of the wagon and spring into the extreme opposite, bingeing on the foods you had previously denied yourself. Because honestly, the minute you tell yourself that you “can’t” have something, don’t you want it even more?

So what this study states, and what is becoming a huge trend in the diet and health industry, is that the focus should be on quality. It relates back to the steadfast advice, everything in moderation with an emphasis on fruits, vegetable, nuts, whole grains and YOGURT!
