*I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist*
But one thing I’ve realized is that people who follow certain diets (paleo, vegan, hclf, lchf, macros, clean eating, etc) are very against admitting their diet may have flaws. And people who see those flaws will argue against those diets all day–but not actually offer any insight as to how to improve the diet’s nutrition.
I’m currently in a nutrition class (I know big whoop. I’m not trying to impress anyone here). We did a project where we had to track every thing we ate, and view the macro AND micronutrients of our diet. I consider myself pretty healthy, and eat pretty “clean”. However I was surprised to see how many insufficiencies in various vitamins in minerals I had. I realized that even though everything I was eating was healthy, my diet still ISNT PERFECT. I only got 50% of the recommended intake for calcium, and 60% for potassium…plus others.
Just because you follow a god set of guidlines, doesnt mean your eating the best.
Basically what I’m saying is that people should critically view their own diets (try tracking for 3-4 days and then look at an overview of every vitamin and mineral…see where you’re lacking!!) and stop hating on everyone else’s.
