    It's surprising how many health conscious, well educated parents *cough* my mum *cough* still feed junk food to their children on a daily basis. I don't think it's laziness as these parents spend the time to make alot of food from scratch. It's really mind boggling to me. Perhaps many decades of marketing and corporate brain washing ??

    Really? Oh ok it didn't come across that way.

    I've just seen too many posts on here over the years where people have actually said they would do just what you said you would do. I must be jaded.

    I think personally for me the best you can is live the life you want to live and if that means no sugar or no refined sugar or whatever it is then if you are the best example of that then your friends will notice and if they want to know they will ask.

    I'm heavily into cross fit at the moment. Have been all year. I now train 3 to 4 times a week. I've dropped a massive amount of cm and also feel amazing. And people ask me what I'm doing. I was telling anyone and everyone about it until I realised their eyes glazed over and they stopped listening. This is my journey and they are on their journey. Now I wait to be asked and if they want more information I give it. But I never offer anything. People have so much noise in their lives these days.

    Just want to correct a statement made by a PP, that "not all calories are equal".

    This is incorrect. By definition, all calories ARE equal. A calorie is a unit of energy (approx. 4.2kJ). It is determined by "burning" a given quantity of food in a calorimeter.

    What is different, or "not equal", is the human endocrine/hormonal response to a given food. And this varies enormously between person to person.

    For those who know me, I am genuinely passionate about medical/biochemical misinformation. You hear statements about diet thrown around by lay-people, which then seem to be taken as fact. And then "fad diets" are born. This is rarely a good thing for the population.

    I posted partly as I really like this explanation at the end!

    "I think that you've got to consider your genes like a hand of poker, so you can have good hands and you can have bad hands and you can go blame your folks about it, there's nothing you can do about it," he said.

    "But, and here's the key thing: you can lose with a good hand and you can win with a bad hand in poker.

    "It's more difficult but you can certainly do it and I want people to consider your genes like that."
