2013 Popular Posts #11 (joint 11th place): Beware of health and wellness industry rip offs

This post is about supplements, in particular, so-called superfood supplements, and how they are being sold to health-conscious consumers at extortionate prices. This post looks at the prices of these supplements, pound-for-pound compared to the price of real, natural, whole foods.

This is a topic that personally really gets me fired up. The ethos behind MotherNaturesDiet is all about living in harmony with our natural world, it’s all about eating real, whole, natural food, enjoying the great outdoors, avoiding the poisons of modern living and embracing natural movement and exercise. So one of my pet peeves is the over-complication of good health. There is a segment of the ‘diet, health and wellness’ industry which seeks to profit from having you believe that the answers to good health, good clear skin, youthful abundant energy, vibrant wellness and graceful, painless aging are locked in complex scientific solutions, hidden away in little-known secrets that these elite chosen few have somehow, after millions of years of evolution, finally unlocked right now in the 21st Century.

This post will show you how some ‘green superfood’ supplements cost as much £138 pounds per kilo (that’s $100 bucks per pound in the US, or 150 Euro per kilo) when fresh organic broccoli costs just £4 pounds per kilo in the supermarket. There is no way these processed powdered supplements can deliver nutritional value to your body at that ridiculous price point. The supplement game is a RIP OFF in my opinion.

Avoiding ‘Diet Perfectionism’ and the trap of crippling inaction

This post is about the pursuit of ‘diet perfectionism’

  • There is so much conflicting and confusing ‘diet advice’ around these days, that it can be really hard to know what to do to genuinely make the best healthy choices
  • Many well-intentioned nutrition and wellness ‘experts’ promote ideals of healthy eating that are virtually impossible for ‘the rest of us’ to live up to
  • A lot of people get caught up in trying hard to do “the right thing”, following all the fads, the latest craze, the health warnings and shopping for the latest superfood being promoted by some A-list celebrity
  • It can be so hard to navigate the endless advice and warnings, that many people suffer the “paralysis of analysis”, so fearful of taking the wrong action, they end up taking no action at all
  • This blog will help you not to get too caught up in the world of ‘diet perfectionism’, and help you to see that if you just focus on making the big changes you need for a healthy lifestyle, the detail can drop into place later
