The New Rules For Eating Healthy

By Gjosefsberg @gjosefsberg

Going Green!After my recent experiments with the 4 Hour Body Diet, I am revising my rules for eating healthy.

  1. If it doesn’t look like nature intended it to, don’t eat it – Do you see Twinkie trees out there?  How about pasta bushes?  How about herds of candy bars?  No?  Then none of these things belongs in your diet.  The more processed something is, the worse it is for you.  The closer you can get something to its original form, the better.  This applies to everything.  For example, fresh fruit is better than dried fruit, steak is better than hamburger and so on.  If there’s a way to eat something that would involve less processing then do that.  (note that this means cutting out most breads, pastas, noodles, sweets, chocolates and many other foods.  If it’s processed, don’t eat it.
  2. Food racism – If it’s white, cut it out.  Rice, potatoes, white bread and anything else that’s white.
  3. Top 5 Ingredients – If the top five ingredients on the box include any sugars, corn products or chemicals you can’t identify, don’t eat it.
  4. Water only – If it’s not water, don’t drink it.  No, I don’t care how many studies come out showing wine is good for you or coffee cures cancer, I can also show you some lovely studies that show cigarette smoking makes you thin.  Stop drinking anything other than water.
  5. Never eat alone – If you can’t find someone to eat with you then don’t eat.  It’s ok, your body can take a few hours with out food.  Eating with someone will prevent you from binging and help you eat slower.  If you find yourself really hungry then you need more friends.
  6. Only eat when hungry – It doesn’t matter if your friends want to go eat, are you hungry?  If not, don’t eat.  Go with them and have a water if you must, but don’t eat to be social, to avoid projects or for any other reason other than being hungry.  Yes, this is completely counter the Tim Ferriss idea that you must eat proteins in the morning.  I say that’s wrong.  If you’re hungry, eat.  Otherwise, do something more productive with your morning, like working out.
  7. The golden rule – On Saturday, all rules can be broken.

That’s it.  7 simple rules for eating healthy.
