I’ve had several people criticize me lately, saying I don’t eat well enough or that I don’t take my health seriously enough. Now I grant you, I should get more exercise than I do currently, but I think overall, I take my health pretty seriously.
In my defense, from CalorieKing, here is my average daily food intake for the past year.
Now granted, I didn’t enter what I ate every single day, but I did do it fairly regularly for several months, and very honestly. Although I haven’t entered it as religiously lately, I did enter what I ate for the past few days, and it’s in line with the averages.
As you can see, it’s a fairly high-fiber, low-fat, low-sugar, low-sodium diet, while still maintaining plenty of calories and a healthy proportion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
I am also within 5 pounds of my ideal weight.
Of course, none of that seems to matter, since I have developed gall bladder issues, I’m viewed as a failure. It’s always the negative things people point out, never the positives.
It’s one of the things I don’t like about doctors – they are quick to point out faults and problems, but seldom do they mention the things you are doing *right* – they always focus on the negative, because healthy people don’t interest them.
