Trying to eat healthy can often feel like an exercise in futility. What vegetables give me which nutrients? Are carbs good or bad? How much should I be eating? Do I need to count calories? Are any of these 14 diets I just read about in the past 14 minutes worth trying?
What happened to the sage advice of yesteryear to simply eat a balance of foods in moderate portions and get some exercise? We often get so tangled up in the nitty-gritty of exactly what and what not to eat that it makes our lives more difficult than necessary, and we feel defeated when it comes to healthy living. But it needn’t be so complicated. [via]
