In my acupuncture practice, I advocate eating food in as natural a state as possible. Many patients will nod vigorously and say, "Oh, I know. I eat very healthfully. Everything at our house is all-natural, and we're very careful when we eat out." I used to smile happily, and left the treatment room optimistic about their health prognosis. Then I noticed how they came into the office--with diet sodas, packages of protein bars, or fast food bags.
So I started asking more questions to find out what "healthy eating" meant to them.
