First of all I did not imply that if it bothers you don't eat it constitutes a healthy diet. A varied diet fulll of lots of colors was what I said. And in lay terms, for generalization, that is easy for most people to remember. No one person's diet can or should be summed up in some generalization or by any blanket statements. Every person's diet should be unique unto them. If it bothers you don't eat it is pretty standard for most food related problems as many people know when something doesn't agree with them. Nausea, rash, gas, vomiting, swelling...people notice that kind of thing. If a person doesn't know why they have gas or dry skin or headaches, that's whole different story as a person who has studied nutrition would know, right, ericaz? Also, I believe that I have mentioned numerous times that soy is a high allergen and that no one should eat it in large amounts. I absolutely agree with the fact that soy is over glorified and eaten too much, but don't agree with the idea that it should be avoided by all people altogether. As I've already said. I've mentioned whole foods, fresh fruits & veggies and blah,blah, blah here and on other posts, but the truth is, not me, not ANYONE can tell the general public what to SPECIFICALLY eat. General or blanket statements are to all be taken with a grain of salt. Every person is different and can only follow basic guidelines unless they consult with a professional about their SPECIFIC needs.
