from "Food Rules: An Eater's Guide," by Michael Pollan


PART I: What Should I Eat?
(Eat food.)

RULE #10 - Avoid foods that are pretending to be something they are not.

Imitation butter - a.k.a. margarine - is the classic example. To make something like nonfat cream cheese that contains neither cream nor cheese requires an extreme degree of processing; such products should be labeled as imitations and avoided. The same rule applies to soy-based mock meats, artificial sweeteners, and fake fats and starches.

"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
