Oh John you are making me blush. You are so, so funny!!.

Be careful with your diet as you have a very extreme personality. I understand that as I also have an extreme personality. Whatever I am doing, I do it to the max. When I am good, I am so, so good, When I am bad, well I am.............better!!!!

Have you guys seen the commercials pushing high fructose corn sweetener? I've always thought it was junk like white sugar, what's your take?

just as a matter of fact, it's not any worse and probably better than many of the sweeteners on the market.  any sugar used in excess is bad for you.  that is true of most things used in excess smiley

 This is what I know......
 I cant find any more Brown bottom candy corn in the stores...I got to walmart too late in the day on saturday and it was all gone!
 But, not all is lost!!!
 I found somebody on the internet who makes it! Its not Brachs, and its not jelly Belly,....Its the other one,..I think the name starts with a "K".
 I called them up but The customer service lady was tied up every time, so I said i'd call them in the morning!
Also, during my candy corn research, I found that candy corn is made of Fondant, honey, and sugar...Like i mentioned in a recent post, I never saw fondant until that big block of it was posted in the picture!
 So, on this note, I bet bees would like it too!
I'll let you know what happens after my call tomorrow! Oh yeh,...I also found out that theres about 10 different kinds of Candy corn!

The increase in the use of high fructose corn syrup corresponds with the increase in the rate of type 2 diabetes in adults.  Stick to real sugar if you need sweeteners - or try stevia.  High fructose corn syrup isn't the corn syrup your grandmother used.  It's just another way to wring $$$ out of a kernel of corn and isn't any good for you whatsoever.

No, I'm not a lefty loony liberal spouting off here, I'm an educated woman who has been studying and following what they've been doing to our food supply, and it isn't nice at all.

Processed foods cause obesity.  There was never an obesity epidemic prior to modern processed foods that use eccessive amounts of salt and HFC.

I do not think that one product, one example, or one excuse is to blame for such things as obesity, diabetes, or anything else.

It's a combination of items to includes, changing diets to include processed foods and HFCS, lack of real work (Do you ever see people raking leaves anymore? No. I see them waving their arms as they blow them into the street with their gas powered blowers.), a changing portion size (Have you ever seen the single muffins handed out at Sam's Club or any other store), and the convenience of snacking and eating whenever we want. (three square meals without snacks is almost not heard of), among other things.

Obesity still comes down to one thing. More cal's going in, then being burned. Really simply concept. Whether your diet contains "items" that one wants to blame or not, it still comes down to too many calories.

Diabetes, could be blamed on HFCS or processed food......IF, some thugs were holding down each and every person and force feeding this crap down their throats. Which is not the case. So I can not think that HFCS makes people sick anymore than I think the gun is the actual blame to someone's death. A person pulled the trigger, and a person decided to eat till they were obese or with diabetes.

Blaming a single food, is an excuse. It's how we start assigning blame for each persons problems. And the next step....is government stepping in to save ourselves from our own faults. And when it's not solved by banning HFCS, we can move onto the next item, and so on.

And it's not the difference between real sugar and HFCS. It's the amounts that our in foods that people do not realize. 50 pounds of sugar or 50 pounds of HFCS is not much different in cals, etc. But HFCS is a cheaper base product, used much more than sugar, and is found in many more of the products that are associated with bad foods such as soda, etc. So HFCS gets all the blame.

Personal responsibility. If your fat, your fat because of what you ate, and how much you ate. And for anyone to suggest that it was purely for the fact that HFCS was an ingredient, is wrong in my opinion. HFCS is bad for you....in the amounts that the normal person takes in.

And just you know....this is not from some vegan, thin stick, healthy type person. I'm 6 foot three, and hover around 260.

  "Convenience" made us fat!
 And, JP..DVT comes and goes..For me, Dvt and prostatitis feel almost identical. I think I do good by eating raisin bran in the morning..And, when I eat almonds, I chew really good too. I get DVT every now and then,. and most times it makes me sick with fever if I dont go to the Dr really quick at the first symptoms...At first sign, I get the cramps....Then I feel like if I go "Big Jobs" the cramps will quit...Then I think, after going to the bathroom for a day or two and pushing so hard it REALLY makes it worse! I'll usually miss work for 3 days.Thats when the antibiotics start to kick in....My mom gets it too every now and then, and she eats really healthy. Welcome to the Diverticulosis Forum!

Since Wed I have been eating very lightly in fact my heaviest meal since has been a potato which I ate last night. So for the most part its been broth type soups, mixed fruit and vitamin water, and a piece of toast with a little butter and honey.

Johnny, as for cramps, I've had intense pains but today I am doing better, but all the way up to early this morning it felt like Sumo wrestlers had tap danced on my guts, the pain has been horrible.

My aunt who is a nurse says people with diverticulitis complain of pain mainly on the right side, mine was all over, so I will see what happens by Monday and then it may be off to the Dr.

Bjorn, you are dead on with your analysis.

JP, oh dear.  That sounds horrible (and John, I can't even comment on your stuff there, that leaves me speechless, you take care now too....).  That kind of pain is a nasty thing.  Never experienced it, could not imagine, but I guess all I want to say to you is, I hope that you will be well, find out what is the malade and get it fixed, good luck, keep that chin up, and have a wonderful day, please....great health.  Cindi

I've developed deverticulitis too.  The gut cramps are adbominal (pun).  The Doc prescribed Prilosec twice a day.  Doesn't cut it.
What I've found that works the best is cheese, but since I'm also lactose intolerant I have to use goat cheese. 
I've created a new motto to add to my list:  Cheese, a slice a day keeps the DTV away.

Wow JP sorry to hear about this trouble with your body. You know I just went through a very intense bout with GERD for the past couple of months. I finally am able to eat normally again. My esophagus finally healed and I am feeling so much better, but I have to eat differently for the rest of my life. I think all those bad eating habits come back to haunt us as we age. I know I paid the price for overeating,but now things will be different. Small portions, chew really well, eating slowly and eating very healthy foods. Lots of green leafy vegetables, whole grains, etc. No more caffeine, no more sodas, etc.

In the long run, it is all worth it to eat healthier. Anyway, you do not have a choice right now and have to heal yourself. I send good wishes your way for a speedy recovery.

Sincerely
Annette

JP sorry to hear bout your diverticulitis.  My husband gets it occasionally, no fun at all.  Antibiotics work but it isn't a super fast cure. Then you have to deal with the meds killing the good bacteria in the gut.  I try to make him eat right, lots of veggies, whole grains, non processed food.  He just gets mad Lips Sealed  Trying a new whole food fruit & veggie capsule, so far so good, it's fast & easy for him although then he thinks he can eat the other stuff! I'm not a fanatic but do try to eat as much whole food as possible & try not to eat things (well, quantities) that have ingredients that I can't say, HFCS & hydrogenated. Not perfect though..love beer batter onion rings!!  rolleyes  Am also aware of the food chain so have my own organic eggs & brood cow for eventual meat, milk & cream for butter & cheese! Oh yea, The BEST honey, compliments of my girls!!  grin Hope you are feeling better soon!  J

JP, Got this online...I would used ground flax seed, not crushed though...

Green Pharmacy for Diverticulitis

There are many herbs that can help. Here are my favorites.

 Flax (Linum usitatissimum). Commission E, the German expert panel that passes on the safety, effectiveness and dosage of medicinal herbs for the German government, approves using one to three tablespoons of crushed flaxseed two or three times a day (with lots of water) to treat diverticulitis.

 Psyllium (Plantago ovata). Powdery, high-fiber psyllium seed is the major ingredient in Metamucil and a few other bulk-forming commercial laxatives. A few tablespoons a day (with plenty of water) provide a healthy amount of diverticulitis-preventing fiber. Watch how you react to this herb if you have allergies, however. If allergic symptoms develop after you take it once, don't use it again.

 Wheat (Triticum aestivum). Dr. Painter, whose study found a high-fiber diet to be the cure for diverticulitis, estimated that wheat bran contains five times the fiber of whole-wheat bread, making it the fiber-lover's fiber. He's not alone in his endorsement of wheat bran.

"Bran is the safest, cheapest and most physiologically effective method of treating and preventing constipation," says gastroenterologist W. Grant Thompson, M.D., professor at the University of Ottawa. And, I might add, when you're avoiding constipation you're also avoiding diverticulitis.

 Slippery elm (Ulmus rubra). Dr. Weil suggests using slippery elm bark powder to treat diverticulitis. The fibrous bark contains large quantities of a gentle laxative that soothes the digestive tract while keeping things moving.

The Food and Drug Administration has declared slippery elm to be a safe and effective digestive soother. Prepare it like oatmeal, adding hot milk or water to the powdered bark to make a cereal.

 Camomile (Matricaria recutita). British herbalist David Hoffmann, author of The Herbal Handbook, suggests sipping on camomile tea throughout the day. This herb is particularly valuable in treating diverticulitis because its anti-inflammatory action soothes the entire digestive system, he says. I suggest making a tea with two teaspoons of dried camomile per cup of boiling water. Steep for five to ten minutes.

 Prune (Prunus dulcis). Prunes combine lots of fiber with a sweet, delicious taste. They've been a folk remedy for constipation for ages. If I had diverticulitis, I'd eat plenty of prunes or drink prune juice.

 Wild yam (Dioscorea villosa). According to California herbalist Kathi Keville, author of The Illustrated Herb Encyclopedia and Herbs for Health and Healing, whom I highly respect, wild yam helps relieve the pain and inflammation of diverticulitis. I like her formula: two parts wild yam, (anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic), one part valerian (relaxing digestive tract soother), one part black haw (antispasmodic) and one part peppermint (anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic).

If I had diverticulitis, I might use a couple of tablespoons of this herb mixture brewed in a quart or so of water.

Hey everybody thanks for caring, I mean it! I am doing much better, last night my wife and I were able to have a little bit of baked chicken, a very small amount of salad and green peas.

I've been talking back and forth with my aunt whom I mentioned is a nurse and she thinks it is possible I had some weird virus/flu type thing even after I've mentioned the unusual stomach pains, but the pains are pretty much no more. I really don't know what happened but a trip for a check up is coming soon and of course I have to eat much smaller meals, more often than large meals a few times a day.

Just got to be disciplined really, which is tough doggonit when you love food as much as I do!

Well, anyway, you guys are priceless and I appreciate all the feedback, suggestions and very good information you provided, I know it took time to write all that stuff, so thanks again for your time.

I will let ya'll know if I find out anything that may help us all in our quest to eating better, sounds like I will be ok, just have to make some new choices.

Ya'll come back now!

JP, have they given you any suggestions for your diet?  I can remember my old FIL couldn't eat tomato seeds, they could get caught in the diverticuli and cause pain.  You need lots of fiber in your diet to help things 'flow'.  Plus try some of the active culture yogurts, they'll help the bioflora in your gut stabilize things a bit.  It's tough dealing with digestive issues, I'm so sorry you're in such pain!  Kiss

Glad JP that you are feeling better. You seem to be in the same boat as me. We have to eat smaller meals and eat healthier foods. Sharon gave some really good guidelines for some things that would make us feel better. I do eat many of the things that Sharon has suggested, but I still have to be careful about overeating

As I said before, I got ill from overeating. I know how you feel about food, as I love to eat so much also. It is definitely a struggle to eat properly and smaller portions.

Good luck and stay in touch how you are doing and good luck at the Doctor.
