Last week, I was watching The Dr. Oz Show. One particular show that I viewed was The 100 Foods Dr. Oz Wants in Your Shopping Cart. I loved the show and, overall, I think we are very lucky to have such an icon bring us the cutting edge technology in health. In the health field, it has always been controversial as to what constitutes a healthy food diet. Several diet plans turn out to be unsuccessful, including vegetarian diet and raw food diets. For example, we err and forget that people are different and can’t always adapt to these types of diets. With these thoughts in mind, immediately, I was in disagreement with some of Dr. Oz’s food choices. We apt to think food at the local supermarket as being nutritious for us to consume or else why would it sell as a food?
Years ago, when I started to eat healthier foods, it was a struggle to decipher healthy food choices verses unhealthy food choices. Statistically, more people are becoming overweight and facing health issues and diseases. It seems quite apparent that many people are struggling with deciding what to eat. Dr. Oz’s 100 food choices is an excellent tool for people to gauge a healthier eating style. This list appears to be more of a complete list of good foods that is able to be incorporated by every type of food eater. With adapting to eating these healthier foods; maintaining a routine exercise program; ensuring that we get the proper sleep and relieving stress; weight loss with reducing illnesses and diseases can be a very realistic goal.
I think The 100 Foods Dr. Oz Wants in Your Shopping Cart is a very doable list for everybody to incorporate into their diet. I see a few food areas that, in time, could be improved upon even more. How many of you agree with Dr. Oz’s 100 food choices? Do you think that these healthier food choices are realistically attainable? Which areas or groups of foods would you like to make healthier or perhaps eliminate for a healthier way of eating?
