Does drinking water make you fat
We all know that food affects our bodies in numerous ways - by adding to our weight if it's high in fat content, by making us healthier through the various nutrients we get from it, and so on. Even our mood can be affected by food. To prove a point: think about these food items now: chicken soup, chocolate, mac and cheese… How does each food choice make you feel? Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, is quoted to have said: "Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food."

By Karon Liu Food Writer Tues., May 14, 2019 I’m a sucker for fast food specials, as evidenced by my last greasy taste test that involved eating multiple A&W fast food Beyond Meat breakfast sandwiches for the purpose of research. Starting this week, McDonald’s Canada is now serving fish and chips for a limited time across the country. While fish and chips isn’t as novel as lab-grown not-meat meat, my coworkers were intrigued by the new offering so I had McDonald’s send me a few boxes. Diners in Atlantic Canada were the first to get a taste of McDonald’s fish and chips as part of a pilot project a year ago.
