The USDA has a food pyramid that we all grew up with. Our great grandmothers used it by intuition.
Our mothers and their siblings live to be ninty. I don't think I want to live to be ninty, I won't have enough money. LOL.
The point being people believe every propaganda that comes their way. It is popular to take on every fad diet to be special and fit in with the crowd. It used to be a symptom of the young. Now the not so young are on the band wagon. And, they are passionate about it.
The truth is, whenever you take a food group out of your diet , you are throwing the good out with the self perceived bad. Unless you are really disciplined and have a degree in nutrition, you are playing with fire. A lot of diseases are based on vitamins and minerals that our diets are lacking and it's not always the best to get them out of a bottle.
If three percent of the farms in the us are organic certified, who is going to eat the other 97 percent of fruits and veggies . Are you really princess enough to believe that you should be entitled to the top three percent! And, if is pesticide free, does that mean you get the pests! And, most families on a budget can't afford five dollars a gallon for milk! Most organic I have found is twice the price of regular food.
Just eat a balanced diet in moderation. The simple truth is that our ancestors have been using the food pyramid for years, intensional or not. It works. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
