  1. Tombstone, indeed.
    Finally! Truth in advertising!
    You know, when I was playing DI soccer and lifting heavy, I used to eat those and stuff like it all the time.
    I can only hope the choices I'm making now can undo the damage.

    I guess my question is: does this type of product serve a purpose? Corporate greed ONLY? Salt, wheat, calorically dense. . . and almost completely nutrient free. Is it true that eating healthily/cleanly is expensive enough that some socioeconomic populations are excluded and forced to eat their way to an early tombstone -- or is it just a combination of laziness and instant gratification?

  2. Hi Amy! Just stumbled upon your blog on chance. So far considering the number of post you have, its been a great read. Keep it up and I look forward to learning more about nutrition from you.

    Just so you know I'm from Crossfit Malaysia.

  3. Kreuzfit, thanks for the comment! Think about how much of a better D1 athlete you could have been with a better diet! You might be Pro- by now!! ;)
    As far as laziness or gratification - it's probably a combination of both. These types of foods are the norm now - fruits and vegetables are so 20 years ago... These days if if doesn't come in a package and contain at least 3 ingredients you've never heard of, in most peoples minds, it's going to taste bad!! It's very sad!

  4. Johnhans, I'm so glad you like my blog!! I checked out CF Malaysia - AWESOME!! Keep working hard, eating Paleo and reading my stuff!
