  • I've now been at this almost a year and my husband finally said last night that he was thinking about giving it a shot. At least giving up gluten. He's starting to notice that he doesn't feel good after he eats a lot of bread or pasta. He's always tired the next day. And, though he won't admit it, he farts like a gatling gun. His digestion has been bad for so long that he doesn't see how abnormal it is.

    • My aunt is trying to eat healthy. In fact, she considers herself incredibly strict and unmoving when it comes to keeping her diet healthy. I suppose that's why when we had taco salad for dinner the other night, she had refused and instead made herself grilled chicken with Shake n' Bake and Riceroni.

            This literally makes me sad But then again, I work with a girl about this age and she has IBS, is on anti-depressants, and gets severe abdominal upsets if she eats anything with tomatoes, but is "fine" eating tons of bread, candy, fat-free milk, etc.

            On a sidenote, I'm really broke lately (I had to borrow gas money from my roomie and have no money for food), so at work today I gave in and ate some of these "really good" rolls someone brought, just so that I would have food. Well, it was kinda dry so I wanted to put butter or something on it, and of course there isn't any butter in the fridge there, but there WAS a huge ass tub of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Now, I haven't eaten something similar to that in at least a year, and my curiosity at how nasty it would be got the best of me. So I tried it and...holy shit. I can DEFINITELY believe it's not butter, because it tastes like melted plastic! How do people subsist on this crap???????

              Wow, that was me this past April!
              Except I'm 24 :O

              I'm cured now! Now I don't have to eat fart-smelling bread and ass-smelling milk anymore! Go me! :-D

              (not that I approve of anti-acids on such a frequent basis, also it was my family saying I had an ulcer :P And my diet was so healthy, I thought... blaming the diet didn't even cross my mind. )

                Sad thing is that sounds an awful lot like me. I was getting indigestion and reflux so often I thought I may have been getting an ulcer too. I was trying to blame my constant indigestion and headaches on the stress of my job/getting older and not on my diet and I'm only 27! So glad I found Marks Daily.

                  I just read this in a comic's comment section - and proceeded to enjoy the eye twitch that followed.

                  • Quite likely it is what they're craving for breakfast. Unfortunately, they're interpreting it as being what their body needs rather than being a sign either that they're letting themselves get to hungry in the morning (e.g. from too small a dinner) or that they don't actually need breakfast. Some quick and easy protein food ready to hand would answer the question for them. "Here's an egg, prepared a way you like, and you don't have to cook for yourself, do you want to eat it and a few more like it?" If yes: you are actually hungry and you're so hungry your body is screaming for a quick energy fix because it's given up on the subtle hunger cues. If no: you just don't need breakfast, congratulations, now go do something and stop thinking about food and unnecessarily increasing your appetite.

                    • The conversation was centered around cereal for dinner - and how it's okay to have cereal for every meal. It's not unexpected - the demographic for the comic is college age kids.

                        • CW moment of the day:

                          My roommate's 8 year old daughter stole my bf's box of cereal--and ate the entire thing. He bought this last night, hadn't even opened it.

                          Also, my roomie keeps saying how he wants to eat paleo like me, and he went shopping and what did he bring back? Smart Balance Light. Again. Ugh. Plus he keeps going to McDonald's and Chipotle and all these places...

                          • my friend is in southern california (from northern) for a couple months and was complaining that he couldn't find decent bread in the area he was in and wondered if it was better where I live (about an hour away). I reminded him that I wouldn't know as I haven't bought bread in nearly 2 years.

                              chipotle is actually one of the best places to get paleoish fast food. burrito bowl with, carnitas, lots of veggies, guac. skip the tortilla and the rice/beans and you're good to go.

                              • saw this on Yahoo:

                                "How to make your holiday cookies healthier:
                                Tip 1: Cut Back on Butter
                                Butter is a popular ingredient when it comes to cookies, but we all know by now that it's loaded with saturated fat. There's no need to get rid of it entirely, but it is a good idea to keep it in check. Try substituting canola oil for at least some of the butter in your recipe or try recipes that call for fat replacements which can be anything from fruit purees to reduced-fat dairy products like low-fat milk or buttermilk. "

                                sigh! whatever! more butter for us
                                the other tips include: use whole wheat flour, avoid artificial ingredients, and make smaller cookies. lol
