Junk food: Romanians eat it every day
Doctor Mihail Pautov posted a new video message on Facebook for Romanians. He argued that most people overeat and should cut back. Specifically, it is for any type of potato.
The expert pointed out that especially the residents of Romania have potatoes at the top of their shopping list. During this time, many people choose it because it is sweet, makes you hungry and is good for the price. Many netizens were speechless when they heard the doctor’s message.
Some of them thought that old people lived for many years eating potatoes 3 or 4 times a week because of lack of other food. Others pointed out that the grandparents often ate potatoes for lunch or dinner in potato stew or soup.
“Every time I eat potatoes, my blood sugar rises, more than when I eat ice cream, cookies.

“And I asked why our elders lived to be a hundred years old and ate…”
“I also ask why our elders live for a hundred years and eat potatoes 3-4 times a week”, “Our great-grandfathers ate most of the time only at lunch and in the evening. Potato head, soup. They don’t drink coffee from Starbucks, or juice, they don’t have snacks.
If they taste sweet, it’s a homemade donut on Easter Thursday. Also, they work all day. Now we eat a lot and sit a lot”, are just some of the comments received by experts on the official Facebook page.
