DeltaPunch: I don't have many rules, but a basic one is "eat as much variety of colors as possible". Try to eat something orange, yellow, purple, red, green (etc.) everyday. It forces you to eat more fruits and vegetables, and the plant pigments that cause different colors are also responsible for providing different types of antioxidants and other nutrients.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a beer to crack.


So M+Ms pretty much cover everything? Cool.

I have one simple rule: If you can't deep fry it, you'd best deny it.

GAT_00: revrendjim: Much to my surprise this is pretty much a non-retarded list. Those are all good suggestions. However, one thing I struggle with is the definition of "processed" foods. What the hell does that mean? Isn't anything that is cooked a "processed" food? Nobody is going to dispute that Cheese-Whiz is processed, but what about bread? It certainly does not occur in nature. Where is the line?

Arguably, anything except grain, raw meat and fish and vegetables are "processed" foods.  Milk for example is unprocessed if gotten unpasteurized, but that's illegal.  So you can only buy "processed" milk.  That doesn't make milk bad.

So I'd interpret that as the less processing in your food, the better, which also seems to be fairly uniform in agreement across the board.


Don't disagree, except to point out that cooked food is generally more nutritious than raw food, so some processing is actually helpful. Not so much whatever they do to turn cheese into cheetos.
