Something I see every single day are the terms ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods. Or ‘healthy’/’unhealthy, ‘clean’/’unclean’. Its these kinds of terms and mindsets that can lead to a detrimental relationship with food and lead to all kinds of eating disorders. Looking at things in a black or white type view ignores the middle ground.
Eric Helms recently brought up a good point in an interview. This type of view ignores magnitude and frequency. For example “1g of sugar eaten every 2 weeks will not have the same effect as 100g of sugar eaten daily, but we love to label sugar as “bad”. Even water consumed in massive excess can lead to hyponatremia and death. Sugar is not good or bad, and neither is water, they just are what they are and without attention to magnitude or frequency, labels like ‘good’ or ‘bad’ are misleading."
