Healthy Lifestyle Blogs
One day I decided to live better. As I remember now: in the store I spotted a popular fitness magazine on the stand. Deciding that it was exactly what I needed, I put it in the basket and went to the cashier. Disappointment awaited me at home: in the main article of the issue, the authors talked about the detox diet, without any irony citing Ayurveda as an argument. The magazine had to be thrown into the bin, but my attempts to improve my lifestyle did not end there.
The further I plunged into the world of a healthy lifestyle, the more obscurantism I discovered: either advice to drink a glass of hot water with lemon juice in the morning to “remove excess acid (!) from the body”, or a recommendation to consume honey with cinnamon at night (to burn fat in the body), then a completely serious proposal to go to the steam room in the gym, "to remove all the toxins." At a cafe that served "health food" they told me they don't serve Coke Light "because it has chemicals in it." (I wonder what they thought was in the orange juice they sold there? Is it physics?) Finally, I came across a blog whose author strongly recommended giving up sugar. The first recipe there was a pie with sweet apples. On this I gave up.
The most surprising thing here is this: all this valuable advice did not come from grandmothers who subscribed to the HLS magazine and watched Malakhov, but from people no older than 40 with a higher education (in some cases even natural science). Moreover, the more absurd the remedy, the more miraculous properties were attributed to it.
