PART I: What Should I Eat?
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."
