Cindi, I will suck it up, not to be confused with sopping up, like with biscuits! I wish you well on your surgery. What will your recovery time be, so we know how long to miss you?

JP, oh it is just day surgery, will be very groggy though and in a lot of pain for a day or two, who knows.  I am up at our Daughters' houses this weekend, being treated like a queen, it is like I am their baby doll and they both want to plan my weekend and take care of me, smiling.  Have this wonderful and beautiful day, to love and live, great health.  Cindi

Hey guys, what up here??? Cindi having surgery,  Please, please take care of yourself and let us know how you are doing. OK??

JP I am sorry you have to put up with this again. Never ends, but you definitely need to get this under control.

I will be sending prayers to you both for a speedy recover.

This body can be so much trouble. It brings lots of pleasure, but lots of pain as well.

JP, or you are so funnnnneee, Annette, you come a close second.  Do you think there should be any secrets amongst friends?  You are all my friends, I have not a single secret.  I do not want to impose on this thread, so I will start a thread in the coffee house, to tell you all of my minor surgery tomorrow.  Check out the coffee house. Have that most wonderfully, awesome and beautiful day, love our life, love our health, attract that great health.  Cindi

JP, IBS isn't something that 'goes away', unfortunately, it's something that's managed.  Once you have it under control diet wise (and there is a temperment component, nerves can do a number on the body) you won't have any symptoms, fall off the bandwagon and they'll come back.  I've lived with it for years, and rarely have problems with it now, it was much worse when I was 20-35 or so.

Anyone ever read "Nourishing Traditions:  The Cookbook That Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats"?  The book is based on the research of Dr. Weston A. Price from the 1930's.  Dr. Price looked at the diets and lifestyles of 14 "primative" cultures (ones that hadn't been exposed to the Western diet and did not suffer from modern disease) and compared that to what was being eaten in the "modern" world. 

I had been a vegetarian for 8 years before reading this book 2 years ago.  I have never felt better.

So did you start eating meat because of the book? if so what did the good Dr. say to change your mind?

Keith,

I definitely started to eat meat again after reading the book, and more animal products in general.  Several of the big changes I made were as follows:
   - Drinking raw, unpasturized milk
   - Using almost all animal based fats for cooking (but still olive oil and coconut oil):  Butter, Lard, Tallow 
   - Making chicken and beef stock every single week and using it as a base for soups and sauces
   - Lots of eggs...
 
Looking at all of the people that Dr. Price studied, there was a very wide range of diets; however as compared to the "western diet", they consumed about 4 times the amount of minerals and 10 times the amount of fat soluble vitamins (A and D especially).

Irwin, you have got to have the world's quietest juicer! Love fresh carrot juice!

BTW, I thought this thread had been removed somehow, think I even tried to bring it up a while back and couldn't.

This May will be two years since starting this thread. If I can continue to be disciplined I can hopefully avoid any real health issues.

Where I am now: I'm down on corn syrup,
                        thumbs up on honey (Duh!)
                        No fried foods
                        Have to stay away from heavy sauces
                        I eat free range eggs (My Own!)
                        Free range chicken
                        Grass fed beef (Can't eat commercially produced beef)       makes me sick
                        Mostly drink water with lemon
                        Clif bars for snacks
                        Whole Grain breads
                        Fresh seafood, fresh or frozen vegetables & fruit
Well, you get the picture.

Did I mention I had to give up fried foods. :-P

Well, I got on that evil thing on the floor of the bathroom yesterday and it told me something really bad, so I have to restart behaving myself.  My biggest problem is I stopped walking this past winter.  So, I'm back on my morning walks and I've got to give up the carbs - yes, I'm a carb queen.  I know better.  If you don't mind, JP, I'll be posting a bit about my progress, too, it'll help keep me honest! :)

you aren't the only one. this hormone thing sucks.  it's not like i'm not working out and i almost never eat junk food or fast food.  :-(  guess i'm just eating to much good food......
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
