Let's Advocate for Eating a Balanced Diet

Katy Perry struggles to stay vegetarian

Pop star Katy Perry is finding it hard to stick to her pledge to stay vegetarian and has been secretly eating chicken and turkey, according to a friend.
The 26-year-old, who is currently on the US leg of her California Dreams tour, has failed her challenge to go vegetarian like husband Russell Brand.
British funnyman Brand, 36, was crowned sexiest vegetarian last year by PETA, but the Teenage Dream hitmaker likes meat too much to stick to his diet.
A source told British newspaper the Daily Mail: 'Russell has been a veggie for 22 years, but Katy adores meat.
'She did give it up for a while for Russell's sake but is finding it a struggle.'  Link

I will be excited for the day when we stop seeing celebrities urging people to be on this fad diet or that one.  We should all be able to agree that eating a well balanced diet that includes eating meat and dairy products is still the best bet.  Especially for children, we should never be advocating they eat an unbalanced diet even for a single day.  We continue to see people that struggle with their diet and health.  Regular exercise and a balanced diet would eliminate many of the problems that are occurring.

I guess people are becoming more conscious of their body thinking that meats can make them fat. I agree that eating balanced diet is better than sacrificing your love of meat or any other foods. It's still healthier to go with balanced foods than any other food fad or diet. You just need to minimize the foods that increase your body fat

I look forward to the day when we stop hearing industry spokespeople advocating particular diets that enhance their bottom line.
