How come all foods that taste great are bad for you?
Fatty foods, sugar, high cholesterol foods, cream, dairy products, ice cream, cakes etc all taste great but are poison to good health. Why is that??
I think it is because, during the early day, these sort of food are found easier to preserve, so their are better recipes for it
Maybe because you're addicted to fat, sugar, and dairy. I purged my diet of most bad fats, sugars, and all dairy about five years ago, and now, that stuff tastes awful to me! If you watch videos of people from other countries eating some of the tasty treats you describe, they don't like them, either. I think we've just been conditioned to think those things taste good, but if you spend some time not eating them, you realize they really don't.
The food that tastes best to me now? Ripe, organic strawberries. I bought a box last week, and I swear, nothing has ever tasted better to me.
I used to hate strawberries! But now I make a modified strawberry shortcake and it is like the best thing ever! It's true, you have to ween yourself off of the bad stuff before the healthy stuff tastes good again.
I'm right there with you. I was a total carb and dairy addict and when I got rid of all that crap for awhile processed foods and junk tastes awful now and I crave fresh foods.
I go on sparkpeople and there are a lot of good tasting healthy recipes and gives ah ealthy balance between caqrbs, fats and prot. Today I cheated ate MacD after daughter's college graduation
Foods that are good for you can be made into tasty dishes. But I know what you mean. And I think it's because all of those ingredients have been carefully tuned by manufacturers for maximum addictiveness. Obviously, the more addictive it is, the more you will purchase it. It's just gotten out of hand because now it's at levels beyond what a human is supposed to consume.
What's worse is that we've all developed a certain tolerance for those levels. So, something that comes out with more fat, salt, and sugar, will taste better to us than what is already out there. Switching off of those foods is like detox. Flavors will feel bland at first and your stomach might get upset. But if you can get over the hump, real foods start to taste better and the bad foods all start to taste like a muddled mess of grease.
It is because most of these foods are manufactured and they discovered people eat more if foods are tasty, so they add artificial flavors. They also found out that salt and sugar enhance taste so they use far too much of them. Coca Cola have a lot to answer for in terms of increases in diabetes. Other such food companies are just as bad.
If you look at fruits and vegetables the ones that are the best for us have the strongest flavors and that is why we evolved with this weakness that manufacturers have exploited for their personal gain. Example Oranges, tomatoes, pomegranates, all berries etc.
Agree. But if you eat in moderation it will be fine combined with healthy food. Try sparkpeople lot of good recipes there. though I am still trying to find a healthy reese's peanut butter cup recipe.

In my opinion, fast food is better than fresh food for 3 reasons. First, it's your best friend when you're hungry. You can take it anywhere and you don't have to cook it. You can warm it in 2 minutes by putting it into a microwave. Second, it's easy to buy fast food. You can buy it from...
