Three food categories you need to balance

After a lot of reading and experimentation I found what really is the problem with the American diet–an imbalance of unhealthy, over processed food. You might ask why is processed food bad? The reason is that processed food has been engineered to make food with traits irrelevant to health. Processed food is designed to be transportable over long distances, last a long time on the shelf without going rancid, and taste better without regard to nutrition. Health and nutrition is almost an irrelevance to modern processed foods.

Most people intuitively sense that margarine is bad for you. It looks and feels like a block of congealed petroleum by-product. The fact it taste horrible further confirms suspicions. But such intuitions did not prevent margarine from being classed as a superior food by health officials.
