Health Rules: Dr. Ryan’s Food Rules to Live By

May 23, 2011

1. Eat things that grow from the earth, or have a face and a mother

2. If you found yourself saying “don’t feed that to the dog! It’ll make him sick!” You probably shouldn’t be eating it either

3. If your grandmother wouldn’t recognize it, don’t put it in your mouth

4. Rethink your choice if you are eating something only because it acts as a shuttle for condiments

5. Bacon is good for you (on occasion)

6. Choose foods with no food labels most of the time (see rule #1)

7. Soy is not a health food

8. Support local farmers

9. Eat egg yolks, that’s where all the nutrition is!

10. Eat your food at the table

11. Never buy food from the same place you fill your gas tank

12. Never count calories, what really counts is food quality

13. Every meal ask yourself: “Where are the veggies? Where is the fat? Where is the protein?”

14. Eat when you’re hungry, not when you’re bored

15. If you’re thirsty, drink water

16. When making change, always start by adding something healthy rather than removing something unhealthy

17. Milk is for babies

18. Treat yourself once in a while and when you do, enjoy it

19. Never under any circumstance eat anything blue (except fresh blueberries)

20. If it doesn’t spoil in a day or two, then it’s not food

Next week, Dr. Ryan’s Exercise rules to live by.
