But let's talk about food.

I think your eating philosophy is absolutely correct, as far as you've described it. It is much better to have real foods of all types in moderation than to eat an abundance of reduced fat, low sugar knockoffs. People who use those diet sugars are much more likely to be overweight than those who don't.


But I wouldn't discuss my health habits with friends for the reasons you've described. I've had too many people assume I'm a "health food freak" when in fact I'm a food snob. I just don't think artificial flavorings or chemicals taste very good. They also

I've never tried Activia.

Hmm. I was adding honey to ff plain yogurt a little bit at a time. You talking about a smoothy made me think of making a big batch of my own fruit-added yogurt in the blender. I think I'll try that the next time we go grocery shopping.

Yogurt is really good for you, but once it's sweetened, it's really more like a dessert, so that's the way we use it.

Not to mention that people with digestive problems (especially young people) are often small, because they have digestive problems which somewhat takes the joy out of eating.


(I was never diagnosed with IBS but certainly had *issues* throughout my teens and 20s, and through avoiding trigger foods, and trying to figure out which were trigger foods, I was teeny tiny)

IBS also flares up with stress.
