Rules that I Broke

Recently I picked up a book Food Rules to read because Oprah said it’s good (Well, it’s not everything that Oprah said were THAT good).   I realized that I broke 99% of these rules according to the book.   For example, rule #4: Avoid food products that contain high-fructose corn syrup.   Even though I know high-fructose corn syrup is bad for you, but I usually ignore it cause I can’t stop eating my cereal.   Rule #6:   Avoid food products that contain more than five ingredients.   Really?   Where on earth I can find any products like that?   Rule #10:   Avoid foods that are pretending to be something they are not; examples such as, margarine and nonfat cream cheese.   I didn’t know nonfat cream cheese is not cream cheese, oops!   Rule #54:   “Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper.”   For real?   My own rule is, “Breakfast like a queen, lunch like a blue whale , dinner like a monster.” I’m a sucker for all kind of foods and I always eat excessively.
