The healthy/unhealthy continuum

On a dietary continuum from 100% healthy (not a single non-nutritive food consumed EVER, all dietary recommendations met daily) to 100% unhealthy (all processed food, no fruits/veggies/whole grains), at what point do you consider a diet no longer to be in the healthy range of the continuum? Do you consider one or two vices to disqualify an otherwise healthy and well-balanced diet as being healthy? Or do you judge the healthfulness of a diet based on whether basic dietary guidelines are followed?

No, it's not an attack. I'm speaking in general as much as you are. Are you personally attacking someone?

This study is for 7 days a week, not 5.


Because 3,500 calories equals about 1 pound (0.45 kilogram) of fat, you need to burn 3,500 calories more than you take in to lose 1 pound. So if you cut 500 calories from your typical diet each day, you'd lose about 1 pound a week (500 calories x 7 days = 3,500 calories).

Yes, that's what I'm saying. It works the other way, too. It only takes an extra 100 calories a day to gain 50 pounds in 5 years. You can exercise 5 days a week and eat healthy food and still gain weight. 100 calories isn't much and those calories can come from pop and candy bars or apples and carrots.

No, I am NOT personally attacking anyone as I DID say "in general" but it sure sounded like you were speaking right to ME.

Are you seriously insinuating that Bord doesn't know enough about this person's life -- someone she works with and sees/knows on a regular basis -- to know that her weight issue
