oritteropo says... I meant to answer the 2nd part of your comment too... I have spent my entire life ignoring food fads For instance, I ate butter and cheese when it was considered madness to do so, and still do now that everyone else has caught up to the fact that margarine isn't really that much better (if at all, depending on type) and that a little cheese won't hurt either. I ate normal seasonal fruit (apples, oranges, strawberries etc.) when goji berries were all the rage, and still do now that people have pointed out that superfoods aren't really that different from normal ones Perhaps I haven't totally ignored the fads, since I seem to recall some of them, but I have tried not to drastically change my diet in response to them. One of my work colleagues bought in to a "liver cleansing" diet, and spent a whole week eating nothing but apples! I don't think that is a good idea at all, and I think that afterwards he pretty much agreed with me (and never wanted to see another apple).
