Atkins diet, Grapefruit Diet, Lo-Carb, No-Carb, Ice Cream Diet, Donut Diet. It’s enough to make ya crazy. Even such seemingly reasonable claims as organic, all-natural, and local can get elevated to cult status. How to make sense of it all?? There’s no money to be made in it, but the truth of the matter is the best “diet” of all is one that’s heavy on common sense and light on wishful thinking. A couple of my rules of the eating road: If I can’t pronounce it, I probably shouldn’t eat it. Avoid oxymoronic food: fat-free french fries, sugar-free cookies. When all else fails, I try to embrace moderation…just one donut. Got food tips of your own? Share em with us!
