Candice Choi Associated Press Published 10:48 AM EDT Jun 14, 2019 New York – Chips, soda and frozen pizzas tend to be full of salt, sugar and fat, but now scientists are trying to understand if there’s something else about such processed foods that might be bad for us. Already, the spread of cheap, packaged foods has been linked to rising obesity rates around the world. Yet advice to limit processed foods can seem unhelpful, given how convenient they are and the growing array of products that fall into the category. While three recent studies offer more clues on how our increasingly industrialized food supply may be affecting our health, they also underscore how difficult nutrition science and advice can be. Here’s what they say. WHAT DOES “PROCESSED” MEAN? Whether it’s curing, freezing, milling or pasteurization, nearly all foods undergo some type of processing. Even though processing itself doesn’t automatically make food unhealthy, … [Read more...] about What’s so bad about processed foods? Scientists offer clues
A lot of New England Patriots fans may say they’d like to be Tom Brady. But it’s a good bet that hardly as many aspire to eat like him. Over the course of his NFL career, the 40-year-old quarterback has adopted a notoriously restricted and regimented diet, as part of his overall philosophy toward health and fitness. In Brady’s new book, The TB 12 Method, which goes on sale Tuesday, the Patriots quarterback outlines what an average day of eating and working out is like in his shoes, or cleats. Or Uggs. As he as done in the past, Brady advocates eating “real foods” and achieving balance — almost to an extreme. And while the outline indeed hawks a number of Brady’s pricey self-branded nutrition products, it also provides a first-person account of the eating habits that have fascinated and flummoxed his fans. Morning On an average day, Brady says he wakes up around 6 a.m. and “immediately” drinks 20 ounces of water with … [Read more...] about What Tom Brady eats on ‘an average day,’ according to his new book
Luang Prabang is Laos' second largest city but arguably its biggest tourist draw due to its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a protection it was awarded in 1995. With a mix of striking red and gold temples and French-Indochinese buildings set along quiet winding backstreets and narrow alleys, it's mercifully serene and protected from too much overdevelopment compared to many places in Asia. As such, it's an easy laid back city to spend a few days at a leisurely pace, exploring the streets and temples, or taking a trip out along the Mekong river. It's also the best place in the country to sample Lao's incredible and underrated food, with everything from local sausages to green papaya salad and Khao Soi noodle soup on menus around town. It's well on the tourist trail of course so don't expect to have the place to yourself but with plenty to explore both in and outside of town, Luang Prabang is still one of Southeast Asia's essential and most alluring cities Things to do Kuang Si … [Read more...] about What to see, eat, drink and where to sleep in Luang Prabang, Laos
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Jenai Engelhard January 10, 2019 With the rise of strict diet movements across America — from paleo to low carb to Whole30 — debates about what and how we should eat have become more polarized than ever. Staunch vegans avoid everything from steak to honey, while followers of other diets reduce their food intake to nothing but meat. Devotees of intermittent fasting, meanwhile, restrict eating to certain windows (daily between 12 and 8 p.m., for instance, or every other day). A friend of mine recently saw a passenger on a flight eating raw meat off the bone. These examples — admittedly the most extreme — illustrate a cultural trend that has emerged over the last two decades and intensified recently: a dogmatic obsession with extreme diets. The percentage of Americans who follow a specific diet grew to 36 percent in 2018, compared with 14 percent in … [Read more...] about Is our obsession with healthy eating out of control?
