The typical American Diet is truly lacking in quality. We eat large quantities of refined foods, which have been stripped of the nutrients that we need

“Let’s face it, the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is terrible. We’re led to believe that unhealthy foods are healthy simply because of the overuse of trendy “diet fads” and clever marketing.
