Recovery day #518
I’ve been buying a lot of foodie books recently, recipe books mostly, but I also got myself very cheaply a copy of the latest Food Doctor nutrition books, which has additional information on vegan and vegetarian health, which has been an interesting read.
There’s also a sections on vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals , what they do, where we get them from, and what the affects of a deficiency in them are. It’s amazing just how much food, or a lack there of, can affect the body and mind, and I can’t believe just how many things I must’ve been deficienct in in my life whilst restricting, purging, and dieting. And so many people still believe in 1200 or 1500 calories a day, and I strongly suspect they miss out on so many wonderful foods, and therefore become mentally or/and physically unwell, or less then there best, and for what? Everybody knows deep down dieting doesn’t work, surely?
And all these people who skimp out on entire macronutrients like low fat or low carb or 801010 - just how much they’re losing out on. Scary really. But its just another great reminder that balance and variety is ultimate.
