Yes, but what about all the pies & microwave meals that we do not need to consume? They do not give us any nutritional benefits. Frighteningly, they're here to stay.
In the case of your mother-in-law, she never thought about her actions which never helped her case. She thought that by eating fruit, she was doing well by herself. My father-in-law thought by eating large amounts of nuts, he'd lose weight... He, too, never thought about his actions.
But by eating microwave meals, pastries & high fatty foods & making yourself think that you're doing well by yourself means you're floating in Egypt. Denial.
