Rethinking, Not Replacing

Perhaps this is where it all starts; the idea that we simply need to replace commonly found food items in our meals with something similar to them, rather than rethinking the entire approach to eating.

How did we ever come up with the idea that the winning formula to the body we’ve always wanted is: “exercise for ‘x’ number of minutes per day (possibly hating every minute of it )+ eat ‘healthfully’ but ‘with everything in moderation”?
