I think the big problem now a days is availability. It used to be the case where McDonald's was a city only thing in Ireland. Now every hole in the hedge has one! Same with KFC, Burger King etc. It's just too fast and easy to consume the stuff. It's a hard habit to get out of...

Wouldnt say that its those things per say as people dont have them every day but they obviously dont help

More things like..
Tin o coke
Sweetened yogurt
Bar o chocolate

Then you have hidden sugar in stuff like
baked beans
cooking sauces

This is the biggest issue IMO.

When you eat a burger or drink a tin of Coke you know that its full of shíte and there's no hiding that, but when you think you're eating healthy like a yogurt or cereal and even bread that you full yourself full of the unseen sugars which we're now so accustomed to that we take it as a given.

Wait till post Brexit we start getting that corn syrup muck from the US laced into everything.

Uhh, what? Ireland is a food basket country. Our standards are far higher at either end of the chain than the US or even most other EU countries. Brexit will not change that. And because the north is economically tied to our standards it will be mostly similar.

Finished a book there called "Deep Nutrition" and she said oils were worse than sugars - the only oils to touch were Olive oil, butter/lard and coconut oil - she said everything else was worse than sugar for you.
That was my big takeaway from her book anyway.

Cutting out or back on sugar is definitely the way to go.
Fresh organic foods - cook yourself and keep away from processed crap.  If you can grow at home even better.
Lots of water.  Pre and Pro Biotics. Plenty of beans and seeds and good fats.

Small incremental changes make all the difference. Your body thanks you for it and once you're off something it won't accept going back.
I couldn't eat an ice cream now as much as I would love to I'd be sick.
Same with chinese food - had one 2nd night on holidays - sick as a dog hadn't ate one in years.
The body is amazing
Come on get a Macari's into you the next time you're back. Cherry and chocolate is hard to beat!
Got it 3 times for the kids there a couple of weeks ago when we were back - I stuck to the sorbet. Kids love it - say its the best ice cream they've ever had.  they prefer the plain stuff in the shop though to the wee ice ream parlour
I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight
