Why do old people swear by porridge?

I was reading a feature on what famous celebrities eat for breakfast and all the people over 65 said they eat porridge, yoghurt and fruit including banana, figs, dried fruit and berries. The ages ran right through 60s, 70s and 80s and one at 90.

These are the rich and famous with access to the best nutrition and yet all of them swear by eating oats, dairy and sugar to start their day. If this is what people who have stayed alive so long are eating, shouldn't we all be eating like this?

    The large dose of sugar from fruit, almost pure fructose by the way which is one of the most unhealthy and poisonous forms of sugar you'll find, are added in because the government told them "eat 65 servings of grains and 32 servings of fruit every day". Oats are because "doctors" (professional pharmaceutical advertisers) told them to eat oats because their arteries are clogged and their hearts are dying. The whole package is comforting to them because they grew up eating sugar sweetened grain cereal for breakfast every day of their life, and switching from sugar sweetened grain cereal to a different sugar sweetened grain cereal doesn't upset them.

      Nobody is ever going to fall for this garbage shlomo.

      Show me one (1) person who has ever caused themselves serious health problems solely from eating too much fruit. You can't do it because it has never happened. kys

        I think people who say fruit is bad because it has sugar have only recently learned about how much refined sugar is added to everything. So they start thinking all sugar is bad all the time. At least I remember that's how I thought about it at first. Takes a little while to learn that sugar in fruit doesn't affect you the same way a soda does.

          fruits are a seasonal thing. eating them all year is moronic and unnatural. Much like oats and grains.

          Modern fruit and modern grains aren't equivalent to what they used to be either. We've bred and engineered fruit to contain a hundred times more sugar that it naturally has, and industrial agriculture and fertilizer has resulted in soil and grains that are utterly depleted of nutrients.

            That's probably true. Heirloom varieties of those things are said to be more flavorful and nutritious.

          Sugar is bad, though, even the sugar in fruit. Fruit is healthy not because its sugar isn't bad, but because of the fiber.

          Not every place has the same kind of season. If you live closer to the equator you're probably more likely to have local fruit available year round.

      So you're saying they have sweet tooths from being kids in the 50s when cereals were the being pushed and now they're older they still crave that sugar but choose fruit and honey instead?

        Yes. They may also have been told that soda had too much sugar, so they drink concentrated fruit juice instead. Same result, they've actually changed nothing and in some cases they're even worse off than before because they eat even more of it thinking "this is healthy now".
