There are three categories that all foods fall into.
1) Fluff: This is the food that you want to eat but should not eat. Its the food that gets advertised by fast food companies to make your mouth water. It’s the appetizers and the desserts. It’s the food that we tend to “stuff” ourselves with because it tastes so good.
2) Fillers: Fillers are the foods that are low carb, nonfat, sugar free, etc. They are overly processed to taste like Fluff. They are chemically designed to give you the taste of something that you want to eat but don’t want the calories, fat, sugar, etc. Not only do they have no nutritional value but often times the ingredients can harm you.
3) Fuel: This is the food that gives you the best form of energy because it has the purest of ingredients. These foods come from the earth. You don’t need a dictionary to understand their ingredients, nor do you need a magnifying glass to see the ingredients.
