I get riled up too easily. I wouldn’t even describe my triggers as pet peeves because a pet peeve is by definition a singular annoyance, and I can easily skyrocket my blood pressure more than once a day.

Seeing someone who has cleaned up after their dog, then left the full bag out on the sidewalk often gets me started in the morning.

Boston drivers who refuse to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk leave me exasperated by lunch time.

And my very own neighbors who double park their cars on our street, then put on their hazard lights, thinking that somehow that will help with the fact that I have to sit behind them for 10 minutes until they remember to park properly.

I really need to start using my calming breathing techniques.

But lately, it hasn’t been what I see but rather what I read that really gets me red in the face.

And I’m not talking about the psychotic Amy Dunne, who left me with nightmares after reading Gone Girl (a fabulous summer read if you’re looking for one).

No, I’m talking about old faithful. The weekly indulgence. The best part of the waiting room/airport/nail salon.

People magazine.

You may be thinking that this is the cover that has me all riled up:

Oh no. No, no, no, no no.

That would be too easy.

And for the record, I’m glad she has lost weight. I mean come on, I study nutrition!

This is the cover I’m talking about:

Dr. Oz, touted as the “Healthiest Man Alive,” was interviewed for a multi-page spread about what he eats and how following his diet and way of life will add years to your life.

Doesn’t sound so bad, right? I mean, he is a doctor. And he is a pretty healthy looking guy.

However, I would argue that Dr. Oz represents every issue that we have with our current food system. Yes, he is a healthy guy. But at what cost?

“I don’t celebrate food,” he says in the article. He continues to say that there is no joy in eating and then comments on his son’s gyro by saying it’s pretty much “the worst thing you can eat.”


This may sound a bit different than the tune I was playing in my last post, entitled “The Beauty of Food.”

Oz: Do not enjoy food.

ARD: Food is awesome. Celebrate it with friends and family.

Oz: That gyro is going to kill you.

ARD: Nothing is going to kill you, short of egregious amounts of processed foods or supplements you overuse because people on TV tell you to.

Oz: Have you heard about Green Coffee Beans? I do not eat those KIND bars in my cabinet (he states they were “given to him by someone”) but I do recommend you pick up both Green Coffee Beans and Raspberry Ketones to jump start that summer weight loss. Oh no, not in the produce aisle my friend. And they don’t sell these kind of raspberries at the farmer’s market. Just check your local GNC!


While I argue that we should rekindle some respect for our food, Oz argues the old “food is fuel” mantra, claiming that supplements, drinks and potions are the real key to longevity. The guy may be healthy, but his arguments are fueled by the desire to make a buck versus teaching you how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

But rather than argue with Oz on nutrition, I give you this - “TV Watching Linked to Unhealthy Food.”

See! Even just watching Oz is bad for your health.

    This is exactly how I am too! I get riled up very easily – especially by inconsiderate people or crazy “nutrition” people.

      No matter what, your responsibility in the health field is do no harm! How can you do that when you’re selling potions and products?

  2. Janel says:

    I used to be an Oz fan – he explained health in an easy way. Now? Hate him. He is so full of bogus. For a seminar I did on fad diets, I collected 10 days worth of Oz show recommendations where he advised people to buy supplements. In only 10 days, it was close to $300 worth of supplements. What ever happened to food first?! Not for Oz. Don’t even get me started on his “nutrition expert” daughter.

    • Katie says:

      I totally agree, Janel. He clearly doesn’t have the individual’s well-being at heart. I see him like a door-to-door salesman now – all about tricking the consumer into emptying his/her pockets. What a great idea for a lecture!

    oh man, this sort of thing totally irks me. my aunt made some comment about him last weekend and it took all i had just to roll my eyes (i didn’t know the science behind the claim so i couldn’t comment…. it was about carageenan, do you know the story?). Grrr is right.

  4. I just read the article in People that you mention and the gyro comment really got to me because a statement like that shouldn’t be made without an explanation. Is he referencing the processed meat that you order from a fast food shop? I am a cook and rarely order out but I make everything that I love including homemade gyros that I believe are quite healthy. I prepare the lamb from top quality meat mixed with spices, a handful of breadcrumbs and 1 egg. I roll the beef into what looks like hot dogs and grill them. Topped with fat free yogurt sauce, tomatoes, lettuce and onion and wrapped in a low fat pita I don’t see what is unhealthy here? Do you? Red meat can be a part of a balanced diet and not an everyday occurence, with even Dr. Oz admitting that he is 90% vegetarian. One last thing about this article that really got to me, and mind you I am an Oz fan in many ways, is the comment that you mentioned above about not celebrating food, what? Food is such a fabulous part of life especially food made from your heart and soul in celebration with your family. That is an everyday practice for me. Thanks for hearing me out:)
