As you may know if you've been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness how difficult it is to change our diet, because food generally brings pleasure - and the food to which we've become accustomed or prefer - is delicious to us, as well as comforting.
Sometimes a simple photo can get us thinking differently about a diet both nutritious and delicious. There's still lots of food that's healthy and tasty that you can eat - but it may be as simple as perception - influenced by seeing a photo with healthy meals - such as soups and salads, fish and vegetables. You don't have to be reduced to an all starch meal, processed foods - or an all red-meat meal, sausages, and processed meats - to enjoy food.
An excellent chart to help you choose healthy ingredients is the 'Fatty Liver Diet Chart':
There are a lot of diets out there and ideas and beliefs - and you may feel.. so which of those ideas are actually correct and have been adequately tested? If you can trust the studies and research of Mayo Clinic, then you can trust that obesity levels - as well as diabetes and liver disease are increasing.
One of those ideas where I haven't found the fortifying studies is that we must eat a ratio of alkaline to acidic foods of 8:2 - and I thought.. who came up with that ratio?
What tests were conducted to determine that exact ratio?
The ratio may be suspect, and I can't dispute their theory - although some reputable sources that require evidence and supporting studies do dispute it, but take a look at the vegetables listed on their chart - and you will likely agree, it's an excellent list of ingredients.
So - the point is - try to find studies that support claims behind drastic diets and food choices - before making it your standard diet - even when it doesn't 'seem' threatening.
