Ah! The noted expert on the Nigerian telephone directory. Strange he wasn't on that other bastion of RTE investigative journalism, "Would You Believe?".
Agreed; I can't take P. Boucher-Hayes seriously in light of his earlier 'investigations.' His blotted copy-book doesn't appear to have hindered his career to any great degree - he's Head of RTÉ Radio's Investigative Unit.
The food industry is evil. It sells you crappy, sugar-laden, cholesterol-encrusted crap. Then it sells you new fabulous wonder margarines and yogurts which are supposed to counteract the effects of the other crap they sell you.
Avoid processed foods as much as you can. If everyone did this, there'd be an implosion in the food industry akin to or even worse than the banking crisis but we'd all be far healthier as a result.
I think turning vegetarian is an option people should seriously consider. I've been a veggie half my life now and I'm now pretty much the same weight as I was in my early 20s before I turned.
Around me I see former colleagues and schoolmates pile on the kilos even while they spend hundreds of euros per year on gym fees.
Oh, yeah....gyms. Another big money spinner for capitalism. You pay them so you can do exercises you can actually do in your own home.
One thing i can never understand, running machines in gyms. I mean WTF. Actually running machines in general. Just go outside and run ffs.
not wanting to sound high minded here, but if you actually get into eating home cooked meals, a lot of processed and pre-prepared food starts to taste pretty gack pretty quickly.
You don't sound high-minded, what you are saying makes perfect sense. The difference in taste and nutrition once you cook everything from scratch using fresh produce, meat and fish is an order of magnitude greater than the pre-processed shyte you get in supermarkets. How some of that stuff qualifies as "food" is beyond me (eg. cheese strings, fizzy drinks, etc).
