Telling Me To Eat an Apple Instead of Cake is Dumb Advice

I was reading a listicle about nutrition, something about the least healthy foods. In any of these type of lists, there’s always some kind of condescending, preachy tone where they tell you to replace the unhealthy food with a healthy one.

“Cake has X amount of calories, instead, try an apple!”

Truly award-winning advice, that. “Smoking is bad for you. Instead, try exercising!” “Working is stressful. Instead, try winning the lottery!” “Destructive habits are destructive. Instead, try a habit that isn’t destructive!”

I’ll be on the lookout for the author’s next genius piece: “Have some willpower and only eat vegetables, you pussy!”
