Nimm's Journal, 19 September 2013

I agreed with this article. It's nothing shocking, and probably not even news to most (all?) of the people here. But I think it's a good piece to keep in mind the time a nuclear war breaks out in the forum over carbohydrate. Or paleo. Or saturated fat. Or whatever.

Calling For An End To Nutrition As Religion

The easiest question to evaluate any dietary plan or religion is simply, "Could I happily live like this for the rest of my life?" where the most important word in that question is "happily." If the answer's "No," you've either got to get comfortable with adding in some sinning, or find another way to go.

Add in some sinning in the form of thoughtful, "worth-it," dietary imperfections, and suddenly new lifestyles may transform from the merely tolerable to the actually enjoyable. Enjoy your lifestyle, albeit imperfectly, and maybe you'll even stick with it.

Nutrition isn't religion. Eat the healthiest diet that you can enjoy, because if you're not enjoying it, it isn't going to last, and tolerable isn't good enough. Sin a little, on me.

I think the question... Could I really eat like this for the rest of my life, is key. DEFINATELY, if the answer is no... Change your diet!
