Right now, the majority of the population is deceived about the nature of its diet. To take a phrase from The Matrix, we live in a world where “we don’t eat real food, but products that have been placed before our eyes.” A perfect environment for the consumption of unhealthy, ultraprocessed foods. This environment is controlled by the dark side of the food industry, which keeps the population buying its products no matter how bad for us they are.
In this book, Carlos Ríos offers us the scientific knowledge necessary to question, research, and understand the things we eat and everything about them. He explains the basic principles of Realfooding, a lifestyle that tries to remove ultraprocessed foods from our diet and offers us practical advice, tricks, and recipes to eat healthy in an easy, quick, and tasty way. The Matrix can’t be taught, you have to see it with your own eyes.
