Does anybody actually pay attention to health professionals?
Seriously. I see all of this B.S. on this site alone asking about how to lose pounds overnight and what fad diet worked and what foods they should never touch again. Anyone who went through a high school health course should know that they have to balance out their diet properly – most of your diet HAS to be complex carbs, a very small precent has to be protein, and the rest should be fruits and vegetables with the occasional sweet.
Even reading articles like this: http://food.yahoo.com/blog/beautyeats/27317/top-diet-myths-exposed – which just got posted on the front of yahoo!, would help educate many of the people on this site. So why don’t they talk to their doctors or nutritionists to get the facts?! It bothers me so much to see so many unhealthy people on this website!
BTW: My mother is a doctor. I went through a life changing process in terms of diet/lifestyle five years back. I lost twenty pounds, I have never put it back on. I am a healthly young woman who knows her stuff.
