CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT TO EAT THESE DAYS? Join the club. In the last decade, America has been sucked into a maelstrom of food craziness: misinformation, disinformation, product-choice overload, gale-force marketing, and Category 5 fad diets. Never before has there been so much food that's "supposed to be good for you" (to echo a once popular cereal commercial) but, frankly, isn't—or at least not in the quantities we consume.
Outside aims to set the record straight: Eating for fitness, health, energy, and longevity isn't all that complicated. In a perfect world, we would all be shopping at the farmers' market and sitting down to balanced meals of wholesome foods sustainably produced and deliciously prepared. Alas, in the real world our table tends to get set with far less inspiring fare—energy-dense and nutrient-barren processed foods that lead to overeating, vitamin deficiency, diminished athletic performance, impeded mental sharpness, and, in some cases, health problems. We're pleased to present the solution: The Outside Guide to Food.
Our seven-step plan will help you transcend the shrink-wrapped, trans-fatted, and sugar-spiked, launching willing gastronauts into a whole new stratosphere of culinary enlightenment. The program isn't designed for crash weight loss. Rather, we map out a route that will simultaneously clean and rev up your engine; shedding pounds—if that's your goal—is just one of the many fringe benefits. Think of this as core training at the molecular level, a systematic and lifelong path to nutritional empowerment, one that redirects energy toward eating purposefully, appreciatively, creatively, and, most of all, with satisfaction. Ready to go? OK, but first, heed this advice: Stop thinking about your diet and start thinking about food.
