  • You might tell that chef that here in Mexico most farmers don't have the money to buy artificial fertilizer for their crops, but often have access to and liberally use animal dung for their organic crops. Just saying...:o).
  • Yes, if that is what it takes. I have brushed my teeth for about 65 years and taken a shower or bath almost every day of that time.....and even made my bed and I have never thought of giving those up. So counting calories is just going to be part of that lifestyle. No big deal.
  • Two tlacoyos filled with ricotta cheese and topped with Nopales ( cactus ears ), fresh green hot sauce,some Pico de Gallo and a teaspoon of shredded white farmers cheese ( Cotija ). Plus one mug of black coffee
  • rice or other grain ( like barley ) bowls. Put previously cooked grain in the bowl add cooked or raw chopped vegetables to your taste. These days I use tomatoes, onion, lots of cilantro, corn, broccoli and sometimes thinly shredded cabbage. Top with protein of choice ( canned tuna, salmon, left over shredded meat, fish,…
  • I think that it is ( outside of communities like MFP ) the " american " way. I always have been surprised that so many recipes have measurements like " 3 cups of Brussels sprouts "in them. In the last 10-15 years it has become more popular to also use ounces, but the cup measurement is part of the US culinary culture that…
  • I am not sure that what you ate is a binge at all. My best friend ate when on a binge on average a dozen doughnuts, a family size bucket of KFC with the mashed potatoes and gravy, plus biscuits, a big bag of Hershey's kisses and a bunch of other stuff she had around the house. If there wasn't enough and if it was too late…
  • I prepare all my food every day in the conventional way and even with clean up do not spend an hour in the kitchen.
  • Scientifically impossible !
  • I am a slow loser and I don't mind at all. I started in April 2013 and so far have lost 66 pounds, mostly in .5 pound increments. I plan on being a member of the low % who does not regain their weight lost and as an added plus I have so far no saggy skin even though I am almost 70. I did not lose every week, but know that…
  • 2 oz are 56 grs....forget about cup measurements for solids. They are notoriously inaccurate .....unless, of course, you are measuring liquids.

  • The comments, however well meant they are can go both ways. I also know that most people who comment have no bad intentions. I once mentioned to a co-worker ( who had dieted many times ) that she had lost weight and told her that I thought it was great. She did not answer, which at the time I thought was a bit rude. About…
  • [/quote] The amount of things outside their narrow purview doctors can be fairly ignorant of is sometimes shocking, given the things we put in their hands. I've generally avoided one of the doctors at the practice in my area because the last time I saw him, he recommended "try eating less processed food to reduce…
  • How can you eat your exercise calories, if you don't exercise ? At least that is what I understood. Please, forming real sentences with periods at the end would help a great deal in understanding.
  • I don't think you can go much lower in sugar, because it is mostly from the lactose. Without lactose there is no milk and therefore no yogurt, unless you want to look for non-dairy yogurt.
  • If you google " chicken recipes " ( you could add things like " low cal ", " low carb " or whatever ) you will find 46 600 000 ( yes close to 50 million ) hits and I bet even discounting all the fried recipes there still will be a few million left from which to chose. Also, if you like fried chicken, you can eat it as long…
  • There is actually no scientific indication that being hungry is bad for a person. In many countries it is considered to be perfectly normal as well as healthy to step to the meal table hungry, especially since in many countries people don't snack between meals. I think that especially in the US with it's over abundance of…
  • I try to eat as healthy as I can, which I know is pretty healthy. I have done so all my life and still took a multi vitamin for about 20 years between my late 20's and late 40's. Then I stopped for two reasons: one, because the often miniscule amount of vitamins in a supplement really make no difference anyway and second:…
  • It sounds as if you are ready to give up before you even started.
  • Eating healthy is just that....eating healthy. There is no special healthy diet for hypothyroidism....just eat a balanced diet with a variety of meat, fish, fowl, different vegetables, grains, legumes and pulses . It will do you good no matter what ails you.
  • Kale does not neutralize enough of the oxalates in other dark green leafy vegetables, because it has oxalates also, if that is what one is looking for. I had a heart attack in March and another one in April and all three cardiologist I saw told me right away when they found out about my whole foods home cooked diet that I…
  • No one can really answer that question, because we know nothing about you. In order to just make an educated guess you would have to provide at least basic information. I could tell you that " no, you will gain a lot " based on my experience, but that would be inaccurate, because I am almost 25 years older than you and…
  • I also answered accurately ( with 15 " no never"s ), but feel that most of what I actually eat is missing.
  • Yes, at first reading it sounds funny, because most people won't go to that degree to get some chocolate. It also needs to be pointed out that especially here in MFP when it comes to drug addiction as an example, most of the time only those extreme cases are pointed out. We all know that for every case that is so extreme…
  • Not everybody hates carbs. I don't and am certain I am not the only one. Just like you I watch what type of carbs I eat and that's it. Maybe because I have eaten complex carbs ( about 70% Mediterranean diet, which also includes Mexican food in the true Mexican sense and not Tex-Mex food and the rest South-East Asian food )…
