Scary Foods »

Trying something different today.

I came to this blog last and it’s taking a creative beating as I am coming up dry on unique ideas to inspire the healthful eating our bodies desire and crave.

Thanks to a cool little tool called Zemanta I have been given a starting point.  A small amount of inspiration for which to base my literary vomit upon. Vomit, only because I can imagine how my gut would feel after this delicacy.

The image to the right was suggested by Zemanta as a possible topic for blog use.  It was the only suggestion that had to do with food and therefore easily seemed most appropriate for Diet Grader.

Now with a long hard look at the bacon burger. I can almost smell it from here. and then of course there is no missing of the ice cream dessert… I can’t say what’s really on my mind…  Oh yes I can and I need to hurry… I’m hungry.  It’s almost 5pm as I write.  I’ve kept up on small snacks and shouldn’t be hungry, but my mind and the imaginary smells are taking over.

I’d love to say bad, bad, bad, but I figure I really don’t have to.  What I can say is that when i’m done eating a masterpiece similar to the scary foods pictured, the Diet Grader program will plainly point out the obvious error of my ways, but because it cares it will also suggest items to help me make up where I am still lacking (not likely calories) and steer suggestions away from those that I have gone over the limit on with this fine meal.

We all must be able to enjoy a not so perfect meal from time to time, but we also must have a realistic picture of what is lacking and what is in extreme excess so that we can make up and ease the negative effects over time.  Diet Grader, I find works perfectly for this and can do the same for you in your diet monitoring and meal planning.

You have a can’t pass it up even though I should meal like this?

The modern dietary regimen known as the Paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various human species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic—a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture.

There are so many different “Diets” out there… well, we’ve all been confused by the many claims in the past .

An example of just one diet is the Caveman Diet.  The beauty of the diet grader, is that no matter what “diet” you choose to follow, Diet Grader can tell you how it stacks up against modern scientific research.  The next generation release of Diet Grader will not only tell you how it stacks up to current science, but will also tell you how you are doing based on the popular diet of your choice.
