There is so much ‘what’s healthy’ misinformation floating around.
What’s Healthy Misinformation
The “health” community has made it very difficult for my IBS and IBD friends.
A friend told me this past weekend that her aunt has Crohn’s Disease and is fed up. She started eating healthier with salads, and in the process she has gotten worse. She started saying,
Healthy food is crap because all those salads have made me feel worse.
My response to her was this,
I would never have told her to eat a bunch of salads upon diagnosis.
In fact, I overhear the “lettuce and sugar-free treats are good, butter and red meats are bad” conversations weekly.
I have to bite my lip because I made a promise to myself that I would not interject opinion without being asked for that opinion.
But I won’t lie, it is getting harder and harder.
The misinformation about what’s “healthy” is killing our guts.
