Can we just ban the term "guilt-free" right now? Saying something is guilt-free implies that food holds the power to make you guilty or that a food itself can be guilty. It doesn't make any sense, takes the pleasure out of eating, and puts a negative spin on many delicious foods. We'd also like to ban the food-related usage of the terms good/bad. If you're saying "Wow, I like that food. It's really good," or "Yuck, that milk has gone bad," that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about relating being good or bad to eating or not eating a certain food or calling a food good or bad based on its perceived diet-y-ness (made-up word). Moving forward, try to accept foods for what they are -- food. If you like the way a food tastes, it makes you feel good, and you are in the mood for it, then that sounds like a great choice... no matter how much fat or calories it contains. If you don't enjoy the taste of a food, aren't in the mood for it, or it doesn't make you feel very good then it probably isn't a stellar choice for you no matter how many celebrities you've seen eating/drinking it.
