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


PART II: What Kind of Food Should I Eat?
(Mostly plants.)

RULE #35 - Eat sweet foods as you find them in nature.

In nature, sugars almost always come packaged with fibre, which slows their absorption and gives you a sense of satiety before you've ingested to many calories. That's why you're always better off eating the fruit rather than drinking its juice. (In general, calories taken in liquid form are more fattening because they don't make us feel full. Humans are one of the very few mammals that obtain calories from liquids after weaning). So don't drink your sweets, and remember: There is no such thing as a healthy soda.

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