This week I read an interesting article giving some new perspectives on eating well. “Looking to the Dietary Gods: Eating Well According to the Ancients” by Tim Ferriss. Here are a few quotes that gives you a flavor of what he discusses:

  • ” The right way to eat is the same as the right way to live: be ‘just, cheerful, equable, temperate, and orderly.’ …being thankful, eating just what you need, tipping generously, caring about where it comes from and how it got there
  • “…by eating more naturally (protein-dense, appropriate portions), we reduce our footprint—the amount we ask of the world to give us. By caring about the quality of what we ingest, we opt out of brutal factory farming and toxic industrial agriculture…by eating locally, we support small businesses and entrepreneurs…”
  • “To be able to say ‘no,’ knowing that what may feel good now will actually feel bad later, is to master the self. To be able to reward the self with simple pleasures is to successful navigate the fine line between self-control and self-flagellation. “
  • “Think about what a better person you could be if …you felt in control of, and confident about, your body instead of lethargic and dissatisfied.”

Interesting philosophical views, happy reading.
