    Things have really gotten out of hand lately. I understand that people want to find out if what they’re eating really is the best for them, and I’m all for it. But too many assume that all information out there is correct, that all documentaries can be trusted etc. I haven’t seent the popular ones on Netflix, I just refuse to 🙂
    Way too many need to start looking at where the information comes from, not just go “oh well someone said something on a website, and they work with this stuff”. Too many call themselves experts and/or nutritionists when they’re really not. We have to be really careful with where we get our information. And just because someone points to a study, doesn’t mean the study is even saying what they say, just that they interpreted it a certain way.

      These are such valid points. It is so hard to trust nutrition advice out there when so many people are making claims and calling themselves experts. Even studies from reputable sources are not always worth listening to when certain companies are funding them.
      I admit I have watched the popular Netflix ones and one in particular helped convince me to go plantbased. However, I also did a lot more research after watching and adapted the diet for me. It wasn’t like I watched the show and just thought yep okay time to switch.
      I think the main thing is listening to your body unless you are being told otherwise by a doctor. People are too quick to join fads without thinking if it works for them.

        I eat a lot less meat than I used to, I feel really good about that, trying to get it down to 0, or at least closer to it. Since I had to stop eating solid food for a while, it kind of got easier to do so =P Now I’m trying to keep it down to as little as possible, but when my body says it won’t tolerate anything else, well…

          It’s all about what’s good for each individual. I’ve never been a big meat eater. I use to love fish. It’s expensive so I wouldn’t have all the time, but prawns and salmon were my favourites.

    Thanks for sharing an awakening post on false nutrition claims! It is always good to rely on instincts or apply some common sense before going for a drastic change in our diet.

I would love to read your thoughts!
