1. Food That You Don’t Enjoy – Food is sustenance, yes, but it’s also love. It’s pleasure, and enjoyment, and culinary rapture. Bottom line, whenever possible, it should taste damn good!
  2. Food That Make Your Tummy Feel Yucky – For example, any time I eat cheese or ice cream, I pay for it days afterwords. I get bloated, lethargic, and generally uncomfortable.
  3. Foods That Make You Uncomfortable – You know exactly what I’m talking about. You spend all weekend eating brownies, ice cream, chips, fried chicken, candy, tacos… and you wake up Monday morning with a food hangover and a guilty feeling that you just can’t seem to shake. Guilt after food sucks. That’s all there is to it!
  4. Food That You Just Can’t Stop Eating – When we think about foods that we just can’t stop eating, it’s usually “addictive” foods such as chips, cookies, donuts, fries, and M&Ms. These are all usually foods that can actually alter your brain’s responses and conditions you to crave more and more.
  5. Food That Really Isn’t Food – High-fructose corn syrup isn’t food. Modified corn starch isn’t food. Artificial flavors and colors aren’t food. Propylene glycol? Again, not food. Check your labels, be vigilant, and absolutely refuse to consume food that isn’t really food.
