Another rant

I am so sick of all these fad diets.  It has been going on for years and it seems that there is no end in sight.  I know that Jared lost a ton of weight eating Subway, but even he has struggled to maintain that weight loss.  Now there is a new Taco Bell Drive Thru Diet.
And then there is the Dole Banana Diet.  This one is absurd.  Bananas aren't a diet...they're a fruit; that everyone should be eating anyway!

I understand that we live in a society that is overweight and unhealthy.  We eat too much fast food, consume too much fat, sodium and calories.  But the answer isn't to eat MORE fast food, or to gorge ourselves on bananas at every meal.  The solution is to become more aware of our eating.  To consume foods that come from a wide variety of food groups, limit excess fat and sodium, and to get active.  Fast food isn't an evil in and of itself, but it isn't a replacement for choosing healthy foods and enjoying them in moderation.
