  • Here's one: we were wrapping up our breast cancer awareness fundraiser the end of last month, and for the 'finale' the lady who planned it brought in a bunch of pink ribbon items "to support the cause". Among the items? A huge box of Frito Lay single serve chips in a special 'pink ribbon box' and cookies decorated with pink ribbon icing and sprinkles. Everyone was ecstatic and gobbled it all up.

    Apparently they really care about the treatment of disease...not so much the prevention.

        Whats wrong with that? When everyone starts dying of diabetes it'll mean the breast cancer rates are down.

          I know- equally ridiculous are the coffee and cake mornings held to raise money for cancer research. I no longer donate to any of those type of charities.

            Oh yes that was standard dieting advice in the 80 s. I think popular healthy eating author Jane Brody was one of the proponents.

            • A little off topic, but i need to share. I found a copy of Life Magazine from 1968. The highlights for me were 2 ads. 1) "For digestion sake, smoke a Camel" it was a full page telling you to smoke a Camel cig. after every course @ Thanksgiving. 2) was an ad from some defunct Sugar council telling us to "eat sugar, it pure energy? Classic stuff

              • So a co-worker of mine likes to talk about nutrition and fitness stuff with me. He's an ex-wrestler, used to be super ripped (or something). The other day, he was talking to me about how he wants to get back into a fitness routine, eat right, all that jazz. He tells me what he had for lunch: a packet of mashed potatoes, can of green beans, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a glass of cranberry juice. He's very proud because he hit all the food groups (?!), so I ask him where's the protein? Response: "Oh, I have my protein at dinner. Aren't you supposed to only have it once a day?"

                O_o

                (and then later he asked me if running a lot would help develop/define the six-pack he misses)

                • So I'm at Costco tonight, buying 18-count cartons of free-range locally farmed eggs (with the boosted O3s, of course, and the dark-orange yolks). I get to three cartons (what I needed) in my cart, and notice that this lady across the aisle is just staring at me, round-eyed. I look at her and smile as I set the third carton down and make sure it won't tip over. She says, "Do you work at a restaurant or something?"

                  "No," I say.

                  The silence stretches, and she can't stand it. "What are all those eggs for, then?" she finally asks.

                  "Oh, they're for me," I say.

                  She's stunned. "Uh... how long do eggs last?"

                  "Oh, about a week," I say, getting ready to walk away.

                  "I thought eggs were good for a few weeks past their due date. Do eggs really only last for a week?" she says, checking her box of "egg product" for its expiration date in a near-panic.

                  "They do in my house," I say, and walk away chuckling.

                  She follows me - I kid you not. "You eat that many eggs in a WEEK? What about your cholesterol?"

                  I shrug. "I don't worry about my cholesterol. You shouldn't, either." And I walk away, grinning, leaving her staring after me in shock and confusion.

                  It's such fun to mess with the CW brain.

                    Hahahah. You could have at least given her a link to your cholesterol primer!

I said that lard isn't a trans fat, so they then guessed that butter was a trans fat, which I shot down, and then they guessed coconut oil, which I also shot down.
                      Technically, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a trans-fat and is naturally-occurring in many saturated fats (lard, butter, milk, meat). Unfortunately, it's lumped with other trans fats that actually are bad for you and so are also included in the bans.

                      • That doesn't mean they're going to ban butter and lard, does it?

                        • SerialSinner: "As far as I know, the fats linked to inflammation (and therefore potentially cancer) are PUFAs with abnormally high ratios of w-6:w-3."

                          I imagine that here you are referring to things like bacon, with the ratio of 6/3 in the area of 25/1.

                          • At a recent Christmas party, I watched as everyone stuffed themselves with all kinds of garbage, and then the main meal showed up, again, everyone stuffed themselves with garbage, and then desert showed up, and more stuffing happened. On the way out, a lady with obvious weight, allergy and acne issues said, "Oh man, I ate so much food I feel bloated and unattractive, but I don't know why I ate that much."

                            • Want to see a MAJOR school district FAIL? Check out the image...put it on a weekly rotating schedule, and this is what our kids are eating for school breakfast EVERY DAY! HOLY SUGAR, BATMAN!



                              Sorry for the huge image--don't know how to resize.

                              Anyways, this menu was sent to parents in my school district about 2 weeks before the start of school to let them know that their kids will now have a healthy breakfast to start their day.

                              PS. My kids are home schooled!

                              • Mandolin - my kid's school menu is similar, except that the cereals aren't sugar-reduced and some days they serve funnel cakes (with powdered sugar!). Needless to say, they eat breakfast at home, and take a packed lunch everyday.
