Healthy Eating anyone?

This came up on a group I belong to -

https://www.theguardian.com/food/202...-health-advice

I must admit that we have always subscribed to the "everything in moderation" way of eating. Well, that is the Royal we because Chris has very little self control. As I do most of the food shopping I can moderate what comes into the house. I don't buy sugary foods, we make our own wholemeal bread and haven't added salt to anything in years. I rarely buy processed meat products. That's not to say if we eat out we don't have junk food but not on a regular basis. Chris's mum was a type 2 diabetic and would have a pile of chocolate bars and sweets beside her chair when we visited. Chris has the same genes but as I live here I can influence his intake of naughty stuff!

I have changed in the last 30 years and now eat (under the supervision of my wife) what I consider a pretty healthy diet.

I was brought up on a healthy diet too. There was a period though when I'm afraid anything went. Lunch was often a packet of crisps and a Mars bar. I wouldn't go into my non dietary excesses but they were legion

The warnings and recommendations change with the wind.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

We're lazy here with food, and do like a biccy with our morning coffee, we used to have some sort of after in the evening but rarely now just as a treat, we try not to eat cake as often as we used to do when we have a coffee out and now we taste it before adding sugar as we both have a bit of a sweet tooth, we can all do better, but I am certain we will get posts from the perfect police.

Yes, we like to think we eat healthily much of the time but chips once a week and sugar in tea probably messes up the perfect score.
But there does come a time in life when I wonder is it worth being in prime condition when you die?

Yes, it would be heartbreaking to send a new car to the scrapyard.

There are continual new “don’t eat this, or eat more of that” items in the news

We try to eat a low carb, high fibre diet, no sugary drinks etc, it works for both of us.

Amidst all the changes announced, it is worth being aware the the Official Government dietary advice has not changed since 1994………. when the “Eatwell Plate” was first published , this was upgraded to the “Eatwell Guide” in 2016. The content dates to long before 1994……. Nothing has changed from the 5 portions of fibre, low salt, low sugar etc..

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

We have largely cut sugar out of our diet apart from the odd "cheer us up" cake. If I, now, eat a really sugary treat I feel really ill and out of sorts Any cheering cake now has to be selected carefully to be more of a "bun" than a cake.

I used to have sugar on my Weetabix each morning it took a while to get used to the lack of it.


Liz bakes sometimes and makes a banana cake which I love, it has no sugar but is still sweet enough.
