Today I saw yet more overweight people with nonfat half n half and all kinds of "healthy" foods like granola and fruit juice. One was obviously a vegetarian, the "healthy" kind I used to be: eating all kinds of carbs as long as they didn't contain animal, and watching the fat intake while keeping excess torso weight on. It makes me sad that I didn't know and other people don't know the truth about "health" foods.

Yes, I think some are. Many are distrustful of it. Meaning that they simply do not understand or believe that someone does not visit McDonald's 3 times a week and can keep it up without feeling like they're missing out on life. Funny, I don't find eating at fast food establishments very life affirming despite what the commercials try and get you to believe.

That's what kills me, we have all this "healthy" stuff available (the labels all tell us it's healthy, so it must be that simple, right?) yet obesity thrives. I just saw a commercial for a "healthy" yogurt. No fat!! 12 grams of protein!! No mention of the sugar it contains.

Since adding coconut oil to my coffee (and only for the last couple weeks!) I've lost almost every bit of cellulite! It's plagued me all my life except when I'm in my best shape, and I'm barely working out!

I'm having to re-learn how to grocery shop, just as I did when I went vegetarian. I still don't have a handle on how much of everything to buy, but I do know this: instead of 8 gallons of milk, 8 dozen eggs.

I always thought fruit and fruit juice were really good for people who wanted to lose weight. Before I started this, I bought 6 gallons of juice. After learning it wasn't, I planted it with a local food bank. Along with some other items I no longer consume.
I go to a pot luck at times, and take some items that I can't eat, and others have been bringing (so far) foods I can eat. Deviled eggs, fried chicken, green salads, etc.

I've followed a lot of different nutrition plans over the years but this is the only one I can actually stay on when life becomes nightmarishly stressful. Sadly, I've had many opportunities to test this.

So I was checking out "Grain Brain" and "Wheat Belly" at the store today and reading the jacket there was comment I asked DD to read about dementia etc. Sadly her response was "don't believe everything you read."

Yes! I just love looking at food. I have that board too, except I called mine 'Low Carb This' because I've discovered that there's a great LC alternative for everything - and I love a challenge! Pizza and cake, mmm...

Honestly, I think you nailed it here. I've also noticed that a lot of people sometimes assume that you are judging THEM for eating the way they do, when in fact you're doing it for yourself and don't actually care what other people are eating. Just a defense mechanism, I guess.

But I've seen you mention all your frustrating exchanges with people before - you have some aggressively anti-LC peeps to deal with! Geez, why does it matter if you aren't going to eat a potato chip??

I've been eating Roasted Pumpkin Seeds for 1/2 an hour and even if I eat the whole 2oz bag, it's only 2g carbs and 2g fiber so it's all free.
I'm really eating them for the magnesium, they're full of it.

I would agree with your DD 100% in don't believe everything you read. That is why it is really important to understand how and why the information is being presented and how reliable it might be.

In this case, your DD may want to do some research on this very important subject because I do believe there is very reliable evidence that wheat, grains, and other carbohydrates are at very least contributing to our ever growing number of people with one form of dementia or another including Alzheimer disease.

There is a great little 15 minute clip on youtube by Tom Naughton (creator of Fat Head) called, Science for Smart People that is so worth while and very entertaining as well. I highly recommend it to anyone who has not already seen it!

Cathy,
DD is going to have to cut back on her carbs, she is rapidly gaining. I think it is hard for her to get inspired by me. In school the nutrition teachings oppose what I am saying, and since I am the parent I can't possibly know what I am talking about. There may also be denial, if I am right she would have to eat protein, ( has been a struggle since she was a toddler ). For her to give up sugar....her diet consists of cereal (a lot), pasta, bread,crackers, and milk. I think it isn't what she wants, immediate gratification is what she wants. DH is a sugar freak as well. I am going to try an cut both of them back w/o them knowing....wish me luck

Meanwhile I'll keep bringing more books home, and hope something I quote will resinate

My DD has been eating my low-carb catsup, (which is here but I don't really eat) and now she says that the regular catsup is too sweet.
I also found Taco Bell Mild Sauce at the grocery store and it says it has 0 carbs per serving. She has been using that too and thinks it's great.
Since I've been on this WOE she has also completely stopped drinking soda....little-by-little. She has also bought a pac. of low-carb tortillas...yea!

That is an idea but I think I'm going to wait & pick some up Tuesday after my pre-surgery doctor appointment since I'll be out anyway. I can take my knee walker in Mom's car so I'll be able to go in the store myself.

I might need to ask my neighbor to pick up a thing or two post-surgery but I'm hoping recovery is not bad so I can get back my doing things myself ASAP.

Partly. My mom took me shopping & that was very stressful. She was pushing the cart & I was using a knee walker/scooter so I did not have to walk on my broken foot.

Mom really did not want to be there so I knowingly skipped getting a few things & did not check my list one last time, which I always do when I am shopping alone. If I had looked at my list I would have seen the bacon & bought it. Lesson learned.

Deb,
I really wish you more than a speedy recovery . On another thread someone mentioned gelatin and collagen, I have been actually looking for a source for both of these myself. I do think it is a good suggestion to aid in recovery. And of course bacon and eggs

I'm sorry, dear; I was hoping a laugh would make you feel better. I am famous for leaving my list at home, right there on the refrigerator, so at least you had yours. Too bad you can't go every couple of days with your foot broken. I'd go for you if I lived by you! I'm always at the store; it's how I relax after work. I'm a freak.

And now for my thought of the day: Should I get a scale or just keep taking measurements?
