Dangers of Detox
Kath, over at KERF, posted yesterday about an article in this month's SELF magazine which talks about the Dangers of Detox and today Gena at Choosing Raw wrote a very thought provoking piece on the same subject. The SELF article says that it's no longer popular to say you are on a diet but it's ok to disguise your intentions by couching them as getting healthy. The article mentions the raw food movement as just another attempt to restrict eating to lose weight. Like that's a bad thing? Anyway, it's something to think about. I've been eating more raw foods. I'd say I'm about 60/40 and I have more energy than I have in a long time which is a good thing. Again, moderation is the key element here. Anything can be carried too far and those with disordered eating need to be careful but I don't see any harm in adding lots of fresh and unprocessed foods. Please read Gena's article and tell me what do ya'll think?
