Okay so now I am speculating, hypothesizing if you will...

Eating "purely" "whole foods" "as raw as possible" "as simple as possible" "as natural as possible", would perhaps be the key?

Eating to the lowest common denominator?

'We' have gotten comfortable with the "fast food" world eh?  I wish I could find the saying that mentions how we started with a root, the returned to the root or something like that.

I love "Raweo's" and"Bliss Balls"

Hey you guys! JP must be doing something right! I mean, he's about as high on life as anybody can get!("cep for Cindi! Smiley)
 Bald heads,....Pot bellies.....These are signs of a "More genetically evolved man"!(kidding..I dont believe in much evolution) Smiley
 Some of us are meant to be thin, some meant to be thick...But we're all meant to be healthy! Some of us do different things to have"Quality of Life" even if it is eating raw, eating less, getting exercise. Fact of the matter is, theres tons of crap in our food and we all know it...Even if we dont want to eat it we're going to anyway..'cuz we dont know, do we?...I think I know, but I probably dont know ...Its kind of like........"Did that guy spit in my Big Mac?"
The bible says that some people lived like 800 years!....Its known that pioneers were lucky to make it to 40!...They both worked hard and stayed active.To the best of my knowledge they both ate pretty plain stuff...Raw,.....and cooked.
 Awww, the heck with it...I have to check a few more posts so I can watch the ball game.
your friend,
john

I am very opinionated about this one factor regarding diet, and that is the persons mental state. I truly believe you cannot go around being hyper, stressed, nervous and angry, etc. and expect any kind of diet to help you. It is all part of the process of becoming healthy. I think a person has to look at the whole picture of their life and see what needs to be done.

That being said, I think it very important to try to calm down before eating a meal. (I know I said this before) I truly believe this is most important and even more important than what you eat.

And I agree with Dane on this, that a diet is very personal and for you alone!! Have to trust your inner voice more on what to eat and when to eat etc.

Good Luck to all of you on this path.

Love
Annette

Great info Dane, the reason I gained a bunch of weight is because my eating was plain and simple out of control, due to various reasons, hey we all got our thangs right?

Well, I am treating myself better and I feel better for it. I have become more disciplined and I am looking for that happy balance, moderation if you will.

I am now eating in reverse basically, the things I was over eating, I have either eliminated or have cut wayyyyyy back on, until my body reaches a most pleasant plateau.

I am getting there, I can feel it!

I hear ya JP and good news on your progress/improvements!   I think (again, my opinion/conjecture) that much over-eating could be attributed to cravings which result from improper diet & the body's need for nutrition.  I used to put massive plate-fulls of pasta away.  That provided little in the way of nutrition but did create a massive carbo load, which triggers insulin production - that whole cycle which can end up in blood sugar maintenance issues (is diabetes officially an epidemic yet?  small wonder...). 

Now I've found that I just don't want to eat much.  Nutrient dense foods are my forte'.  Speaking of which, I'm surprised no one has mentioned bee-pollen.  What an amazingly fantastic food that is!  We eatses it every day, don't we precious?  Wink  Another thing that has worked for me is separating meals by acidic vs alkaline optimal digestion.  When I eat proteins & fats I only eat them (acidic digestive environment) and when I eat greens it's solely greens (alkaline digestive environment).  Don't mix them & I never have any sort of indigestion - it seems really easy/efficient on the ol gastronomy.  I've been sort of amazed at how I can do things immediately after eating as well, recalling how after a typical meal (e.g. that pasta) I'd be pretty laid out and averse to any physical activity for quite awhile afterward.  Now I can set the fork down, get right up and go run/bike whatever without a worry nor cramp.  No "food comas" for me.

Obviously I've thrown most all conventions and traditions out the window.  I'm not a contrarian by nature or without purpose... it's just that I've decided that health is the most precious thing I have.  I guess I miss out on social eating but.. then again, I'm actually more social at those gatherings (inter-active, as opposed to stuffing my face, lol).  Why does every social gathering, holiday, etc., revolve around food anyways?  (I digress) Sitting around for more than 15 minutes just eating is a waste of time.  Wink  It's also not as convenient a diet as, say.. MacDonalds -  but it is surprising how acclimated one can become and, although I can't typically "eat out", it's really an easy lifestyle choice now.  Plenty of travel-food options. 

One step at a time JP - see what works for ya and do a lot of research so that you are confident in your decisions.  The fact that you care and are taking ownership is the real major step.  Good show!

Cheers,
Dane

Went to the doctor's office the other day for a diabetes followup.  The nurse asked me what my diet was.  I told her food.  She said she wanted to know what type of things I ate to control my diabetes.  Seeing she wanted specific dietary info I told her if what I put in my mouth proved edible, I ate it, if it wasn't edible, I spit it out.  I told her I had lost 50 lbs by eating twice a day whether I needed to or not.  I eat anything I want,but only twice a day.

I'm for any diet that keeps me alive.

Hey Brian, a couple of people have mentioned you gotta do what's right for you, you are a perfect example of that, I wish you continued success.

 Just when you think you've got it down to a science, you're thrown a curve ball, or some new information comes along to debunk what you thought might have been an absolute truth. This holds true in a lot of things, including diet and beekeeping.

At this point in my life I am open to suggestions but I do have certain things that work for me, that are tried and true, but then again...

I visited a vegetarian and vegan website the other day for some vegetable recipes that I could add to my repertoire and came away with a very bitter taste in my mouth. Most on there were vegan. Most were very angry towards anyone who would even consider eating any animal product, they even referred to us as stupid omnis, of course short for omnivores. I just couldn't believe what I was seeing, it was very scary.

I have seen vegans who were so thin they looked like they were about to die any minute, and I'm not putting them down, don't think I am. I knew a girl whose sis was vegan and she was afraid for her, she would slip liquid amino acids into her food or drink, whenever possible. Vegetarianism makes a lot more sense, and Dane's information above is informative as to the why's on vegetarianism as well. Now I have also seen people put down vegans and vegetarians as well, so there are those in both schools that do trash talking, that's just how it goes in this world you know.

In a doctors office a few yrs ago, i read an article about the growing trend of (teenage)young women becoming vegetarian in droves. the article went on to say that many of these young ladies didn't know diddly about proper nutrition, and were hurting themselves greatly. they were deficient in certain amino acids b/c they didn't eat legumes(didn't even know what legumes were), calcium deficient as well. Many were actually having irregulat menstrual cycles. the article said these ladies were basically eating junk food w/o any concept of what a proper vegetarian diet consisted of.

Yes, a balanced diet, w/ moderation is best. I always drink a big glass of not cold water before I eat now. I also attempt to eat slower, eat my salad first and always have an apple in the car or on my desk at work to avoid falling off the wagon. Planning your meals each and every day is a must. Again helps w. weak moments.  And i buy the best fruit I can. I eat so much fruit, that if its good, I dont feel like I'm missing out. Only whole grain breads if i have a carb too. Like Dane, I no longer suffer from        P.E.D.S.-Post Eating Drowsiness Syndrome!

One modestly effective tool that helps me reduce total food intake - miso soup. It is the paste used to make soy sauce - soy and grain, digested by months or years of fermentation.  It is rich in free amino acids and short chain peptides - these tell the brain that protein is being digested, turns off the hunger. You could use just about any hydrolyzed/predigested protein.... chicken soup might work if you cooked it long enough with the bones and all.

Miso paste is good smeared on tortilla when making a burrito also.

I know Annette, its a little queer, huh? grin Actually, it makes sense. I grew up around people who liked to cook. My Grandparents used to own a po-boy and delicatessen and we would cook and cook up a storm. I actually worked there and made sandwiches as early as 12 yrs of age.

I roomed with my cousin and two of his friends one semester at college & got elected cook, I didn't mind and they liked the cooking as well. My Dad cooked at home as well as my Mom and it was something that interested me, especially for the fact that my Dad cooked a lot of stuff from the garden, so it was more of a family event, that left an impression on me.

Besides, I love to eat!

My wife says I lured her in with chorizo and baklava!!! Which I did, of course!!! grin

Yes food is a very powerful aphrodisiac and can be used to win over people, especially when made with lots of love. Ever see the movie "Babettes Feast"?? I highly recommend this movie.

Have a good day, Wow, it is actually raining here today.

Cooked some lemonfish in the wok last nite with ginger/soy sauce, lemon, hot sauce, seasonings and orange blossom honey, and had a big salad to go with it.

It was very good and my dogs loved it too. My wife had already eaten, a big salad with all kinds of stuff in it, got her eating healthier also.

Found these little smoothies at Sam's called "naked" just fruit, very good, tasty, and no sugar added.

Peace,
