Denial

A recent poll taken and reported on the "Discovery" website reports...


"Of the 1,234 American adults polled, 89.7 percent said their diet was "somewhat" (52.6 percent), "very" (31.5 percent), or "extremely" healthy (5.6 percent).

But 43 percent of the survey respondents said they drank at least one sugary soda or other sweetened drink every day, and just one in four said they limited sweets, sugars or fats in their diet, the poll conducted in early November found.

Four in 10 Americans said they ate "pretty much everything" or "mostly everything" that they wanted, the poll found."

I've always wondered how us humans can hold two, or more, contradictory thoughts in our heads at the same time but we often do and need to be wary of it.

Some people wouldn't even see the irony of eating "healthy Asian" food at the following restaurant!

  5. A lot of people are delusional. Many know the truth but don't want to accept it because to accept it would mean that they may have to make a change. And change is hard!

    As we say in Cork - De-Nile is a river in Egypt.

  7. I like denial, it's a pleasant state of mind from which you can cope with anything.....

    I think that most of my festive season food came from that restaurant - at least that's how I turned out after a week of eating!
