It’s no secret that I like a good controversy. It’s not that I enjoy “stirring the pot” so much as I have no fear in speaking my mind. And once my mind is made up, it’s hard to convince me otherwise but I do really try to appreciate other people’s opinions and thoughts. If I’ve learned anything in 30 years, it’s that sometimes you’re right and sometimes you’re wrong but just don’t know it yet.
On that note, here are some of my most controversial posts of all time:
I Never Go To Work
Why I think being a stay-at-home-mom is easy and being a working mother sucks.
Do Men Belong in Zumba
I never thought so many men would comment on this! It is still one of my most googled blog posts of all time.
Lying Momma, Where You At?
Why “eating for two” gets my blood boiling.
Why I Stay Away From Isolated Protein
People have commented that I only reported half the story and that I should consider the “denatured” or “cold-processed” isolated proteins as healthy options but I still believe isolated proteins are processed and unnatural and raise the acidity in our bodies.
Dangers of Visalus Ingredients
I had no idea that there would be so many “haters” on this post but as the second most profitable weight loss company in the world, there are plenty of Visalus sellers who aren’t happy with blogs like mine shedding light on the dangerous ingredients used in their products. I’m shocked at how many former and current Visalus users have commented to share their testimonies of the nasty side effects which have resulted from these weight loss shakes. Although I struck quite the nerve with this one, not one single pro-Visalus commenter has been able to disprove any of my scientific claims that the ingredients are harmful (because no, just saying “the FDA says Splenda is safe” is not enough for me to contradict the science that says otherwise).
The Dangers of Electrolyte Replacement Drinks
Why people who are giving their kids gatorade should be smacked.
Your Diet Food is Making Your Stupid
Ignorant, misinformed consumers spend millions of dollars on “food” that’s not even really food. If you’re buying Lean Cuisine, Skinny Cow, or any other “diet” food, I’m talking to YOU.
