Some people I know do Weight Watchers, and while they’re pursuit of health is admirable, it’s frustrating to watch them count points and avoid saturated fat and calories. Apparently there’s an app that can scan a barcode and tell you how many points something is. Let’s consider the idea that most food you should AVOID has a barcode and food that you SHOULD be eating does not. (or at least at one point in its life, it did not. Perhaps the meat/fish you buy at a supermarket has a barcode for pricing purposes, but that’s it.)
The point? Eat food that could go sans bar codes. If it has one, ask if it could be found in nature. If it can’t, then you probably shouldn’t be eating it.
