Quote:
Honestly, seriously, you don’t know what to do about food? Here is an idea: Eat like an
adult. Stop eating fast food, stop eating kid’s cereal, knock it off with all the sweets and
comfort foods whenever your favorite show is not on when you want it on, ease up on
the snacking and— don’t act like you don’t know this— eat vegetables and fruits more.
Really, how difficult is this? Stop with the whining. Stop with the excuses. Act like an
adult and stop eating like a television commercial. Grow up.

"eat like an adult" is the best piece of dietary advice I've ever heard

good, simple summary of the "how to"

ironically, I had more of the "will to" as a child.
It was called my mom's rules

In the US they're called "Honey Smacks". They look like exactly what Dan John was telling grown ups to avoid.

You just have to change your idea of "best". Get away from the instant gratification of junk food and actually eat stuff that will improve your health. In other words, grow up and take responsibility.

I'm still a little confused by the "how can you pass..." phrase. Does this mean "how could you pass them up?" Or does it mean, "How could you give them your approval?" Or ???

The Aussies have a similar-sounding expression, "you can't go past _____ ", meaning you can't get any better than _____.

Besides, "English" isn't just "English". British, American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, S Africa, etc., etc., all have variations and pet expressions. That is probably a common way of saying it is some of those places, just not familiar to me. Within medicine terminology varies a lot between English-speaking countries, which makes for some amusing situations for me, since I work with American, Aussie, Kiwi, PNG, Brit and occasionally some other docs.

I think "stop drinking like a college student" merits inclusion.

Not being able to pass something is a reason to see a doctor.

i think my translator is a mix of everything, cause there are always a ton of different terms, which should mean the same. i just pick something that sounds right to me :grin:
