In Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose by Drew Manning, the author discusses how a supermarket is like a baked potato.
The outside “skin” of the store is where you will find your healthier choices like lean meats, fruits, vegetables and healthy dairies.
The “fluff”, or the inside aisles are where you find your less healthy choices such as your ice creams, sweets and quick fix dinners with all the MSG’s you could ask for…
Yes, there are healthy choices that can be made within the aisles of a supermarket, just like the middle of a baked potato is not all bad for you, but the majority of all things GOODe for you are on the outside lane of your store.
Check out the video Cris and I made while on our visit to Wal-Mart (where all us rednecks shop) and see what I mean…and how I discovered that even this particular potato came loaded with bad choices and accountability.
