I'm not entirely sure that ALL processed food is bad for ALL people at all times ;) But I do think it says something that Weight Watchers pushes Health and Fruits and Veggies ... and then sells the exact opposite.

When I quit counting points and started listening to my body's hunger and satiety cues, I noticed that it took two Smart Ones meals to quell my hunger, and then I was jittery an hour and a half later. If I make my own breakfast of porridge, hard-cooked eggs, and fruit, it's just as fast (I precook eggs in batches every few days), costs a hell of a lot less, and keeps me going for four or more hours. How many calories are in my breakfast now? No frickin' idea.

Great column!

It's no accident that some of us have always tried to eat what I think of as "clean" foods. As a kid, I went shopping with my mother who always read labels on cans & packaged products.
She said that if you needed a degree in chemistry to understand the labels, that was a product you did NOT want to put in your body.

It's amazing that companies purportedly SO interested in fat folks' health would market these chemical nightmares that surely can't be good for ANY body, regardless of size.

Thanks for putting the ingredient list out there in all its poisonous glory.

You're right about the Amy's burritoes: I bought one to try (it was on sale) and it was boring as hell. And very dry.

We used to buy those diet bars, and my mom bought some of those diabetic chocolate bars when they first came out in the 90s (they were called Choice). They were very disgusting. I've heard that alot of people get really sick on those fake fats and fake sugars, like what WW sells. I've never eaten their bread or anything so I don't know, but it seems like they're playing God with us, to make a buck.
