This was a great article, so I was very happy to see that Marion Nestle (author of Food Politics
and other books) has this posted on her website for everyone to enjoy and learn from
My Dinner with Marion (Lunch and Breakfast Included)
Some interesting points:
Of course, portion control is stressed!
Marion doesn't eat breakfast (but she's NOT saying that we all should skip breakfast - she's just not hungry in the morning).
She never craves food (lucky!!)
"There's not much evidence that dairy products prevent osteoporosis...pick foods because you like them, not medicinally."
"We're not born liking foods that are bad for us. We're taught that...advertising mainly...junk food is cheap to produce and profitable..."
"One in 8 people in NYC has diabetes..because of junk food and lack of exercise...I wish people would understand that food that is good for you tastes good. Just eat a balanced diet. Nutrition takes care of itself."
Pretty good article!
