Much is claimed about the effects of detoxing, especially things that can not be proved. Detoxing has become a huge cash cow. Even though, I do see positive things about detoxing. Are you still following me? I’m explaining myself in this article:
2. Beware of Nutella!
I love Nutella. We never really have it at home, because we’re going for a slightly healthier version, but if I’m somewhere else and I have Nutella within reach, I can’t resist. It’s too bad that I find so much scare mongering going on on the www. I came across an article that specifically warned about Nutella. Nutella would cause brain abnormality’s and the like. I responded to the article:
3. Obsessive eating behavior
Building on previous paragraph: a while ago I received an email from Joey, who stressed about nutrition (and her weight) due to scare mongering. I get it! If I were to believe all health gurus, I would not dare to eat anything but lettuce leaves. Self-grown, organic, fermented lettuce, that is.

9. How much do you need to eat?
How much do you actually need to eat? Personally I think this is not a question you should really be asking yourself, unless you really (want to) gain or lose weight. In general, you notice it yourself when your clothes become more tight or loose and you’ll know if you eat too much or too little. Are you looking for a more accurate method to figure out how much you should eat with your lifestyle, then this is a useful article:
