To answer a question with a question, why put this as an either/or proposition? Basically, I'm healthy AND I eat a lot of fast food.
Which doesn't mean I can get away with chowing down on just any old thing. I DO have to pay attention to what my body tells me--but not to what Michelle Obama or any other so-called Food Expert has to say.
Learning to listen to that not-so-small, not-always-still inner voice HAS resulted in the following over the years:
1. Getting all of my teeth the heck out of my skull, thank you very much. Mercury poisoining, horrible heavy metals toxin load in my mandibles, nuh-uh, bad stuff!
2. No more alcohol.
3. No smoking.
4. No chocolate. (This one is fairly recent, and yes, it bites. Or rather, does NOT bite, since one bite of chocolate these days is sure to produce a result in my physical body that's...unpleasant, to say the least.
5. Not too much fruit (and especially not too much apple juice) unless I have a really, really good book I'm waiting to read from cover to cover while sitting on the toilet.
On the flip side, a relatively high intake of caffeine, sugar, and/or Dollar McDoubles from Mickey Dee's does NOT seem to be a problem.
Could that change? Most certainly. WILL it change? Most likely. But for now, at age sixty-seven, that's the way it works.
