The Benefits and Drawbacks of Different Ways of Eating
Nothing in life comes without trade-offs. Nothing.
Want to get married? Trade-offs. Want to stay single? Trade-offs.
Want to go to college? Trade-offs. Want to avoid college? Trade-offs.
The same is true with food.
Every single way of eating has trade-offs. Every. Single. One.
Paleo, Keto, Macros, Vegan, Vegetarian, Raw Food all have trade-offs.
There is no way of eating that is simultaneously the cheapest, the best tasting, the most convenient, the healthiest, the best for performance, etc.
You can clearly see how trade-offs come in to play with the way most Americans eat today. The two main idols Americans worship today when it comes to food are cost and convenience. Most Americans think food should be as cheap and convenient as possible. It’s no coincidence that our health has taken a dive as a result of this attitude towards food, among other things.
Because every way of eating has trade-offs does this mean no way of eating is better than any other? No.
It just means that what is better or worse for someone depends on their individual goals. What’s true for one person in terms of what’s best won’t necessarily be the best for someone else.
In this video I talk about all the benefits and drawbacks of different ways of eating so you can get a sense of what might be best for you given your goals.
