13 Clueless Statements That Drive People Who Know About Nutrition Crazy

These KILL me!!! Diet soda is unbelievably bad for you, I’m shocked it’s even legal… sports drinks contain chemicals in them that are illegal in other countries because they are so disgustingly unhealthy… yet we allow them her in the states. Avocados are high in fat but it’s GOOD fat, it’s not the same as eating fries soaked in grease. And anything you get from Mcdonalds is NOT healthy, let’s be real people The chicken is injected with sodium, the lettuce is void of nutrients from being prepackaged, it’s soaked in pesticides and is most likely GMO. The dressing is packed full of sugar… need I go on? I work at a Cake and Ice Cream shop, I don’t eat there. In the shop we market smoothies to college students as “healthy” because they are “made from real fruit, have no HFCS!” BUT they are packed full of preservatives, maltodextrin, and dye… please tell me if it is made out of strawberries, why do you have to dye it red??? I see people coming in from the gym, and treating themselves to ice cream or getting one of these smoothies with added protein or fat burner. It’s not going to help… End Rant.
