  • I was out shopping an tried on a pair of slacks. A lot of us are familiar with the pattern of - if it fits in the hips and thighs it is huge in the waist, but you can't get the smaller size up over your legs. But these pants were even stranger. Huge in the waist, large in the butt and thighs, but the calves were so tight I was worried I'd split the seam! In the CALF! So odd.

      It wouldn't surprise me if that man would be one of them one day, or if his friends one day tell him: "Come on, have a pizza with us, you've lost so much weight, you can handle it!"

      The same when someone offers me a muffin or some kind of candy and I decline politely. They always give me a once-over and then tell me: "You can take it, you're skinny."
      I want to tell them: "And how do you think I stay skinny?"

      GAH, "skinny" doesn't sound like a word anymore after you've written it down a couple of times! I actually Googled it, to make sure it was the right word!
      Heck I was a fat whole foods vegan for awhile. Still trying to figure out how THAT happened on a daily budget of 1500 calories. Even on primal I won't lose at 1500, though I won't gain or have any energy at all. I guess my body just bucks everything CW.

      Here's my CW moment; I've been watching clips of English celebrity chefs because I have no kitchen and it's feast cooking season. Jamie Oliver has apparently discovered cauliflower rice, which I was unaware was "totally no carb." Wait, it gets better. One of the comments down below said "yay a low carb meal!" The rice was for sweet potato chickpea curry. What do people think carbs are?

      • I saw a very obese person (like more obese than The Biggest Loser contestants are...) in the grocery store... His cart:
        Veggies, veggies, veggies, salad, whole grain bread, brown bread, deli meat, cheese, bottled sparkling water, fruit, fruit, a couple of sauces.
        a lot of people buy healthy food and don't end up eating it. They buy pizza or fast food or whatever because veggies/salad/fruit/deli meat in absence of fat is miserable. I know when I used to eat CW healthy that many days my lunch was totally unappealing so I went out for something or bought a bag of candy.

        It's such an unsatisfying way to eat. Right now I'm doing a limited diet, but it includes a ton of fat. Even though I eat the same thing day in/day out, I guess because of the fat it never leaves me wanting something else.

          If it's a chicken egg, it's because some breeds of chicken regularly lay decoy eggs to improve survival chances for their real babies. (This is why most of these breeds were selected as farm chickens: they lay eggs more often than they need to mate.) They lay the unfertilized decoys pretty much anywhere, meaning an animal is more likely to find and eat a decoy than a fertilized egg. Having eaten, it is more likely to go away. That, combined with an angry hen guarding the real nest, gave chickens an edge as far as survival goes.
          It's like a chicken-period, too, allowing the bird to release any unfertilized ovum and prepare for potential mating.
          We've simply bred them to lay EVEN MORE eggs per week and kept them away from roosters, but unfertilized eggs aren't unnatural, by any means.

            If you come across a source of fertilized eggs, give them a try. Old timey bodybuilders and strongmen swore by them.
            Does something gruesome happen in the 24hrs before an egg might be collected? All our eggs come from pastured hens that have access to a couple of roosters. (Or maybe its the other way around - the roosters have access - because according to the farmer, they're the ones who care about getting it on.) Maybe 1/3 of the eggs have a little blood spot next to the yolk. I haven't noticed a difference in taste. Has something really happened to make them more nutritious?

              Are you sure he doesn't candle the eggs and get rid of the fertilized ones? I'm not sure if the little blood spot means it's fertilized, the photos I googled showed a lot of bloodiness, but I guess it would depend on how long they were left under the chicken to incubate.

              I really don't know if there's actually any benefit to eating fertilized eggs. I was just suggesting that if anyone had a source for them, he or she could give them a try and report back.

              • Here is a fertilized egg. The ones with a speck of blood are not. Those are simply a broken capillary from the chicken as the yolk was forming.

                  No need to candle the eggs if they are collected daily; if the farmers sells the eggs I would imagine he collects them daily. I know we do and we don't sell them and we are fairly lax in our hen husbandry.

                  • We've gotten the bloody eggs before. It's pretty gross. But we've also gotten a couple of eggs with prefectly formed tiny chicks on the yolk. That was pretty cool! We pulled out our microscope and gave it a good look. I think the bloody eggs are something besides just a fertilized egg because they one with the chick wasn't bloody at all.

                    I would eat the little chick egg.

                      Well, I stand (slightly) corrected. Did you ever eat a fertilized one, UF? I'm definitely not the authority on this issue. I don't have a single chicken (although I've thought about getting a big terrarium for my condo with 1 or 2 hens, but I've been counseled by a former zookeeper that I'll regret it).

                        Wow, finding a tiny chick would be so cool! And probably put DD off farm eggs for life, lol. Do you know how long it takes for something recognizable to form?

                        • Went to the food co-op (healthy food store/hippy haven) to get gelatin. They do not stock it, but they do carry 6 variaties of vegan 'cheese.'


                          Last night my wife was eating tic-tacs.

                          Her - "They are only 120 calories for the whole pack!"
                          Me - "Or you could eat 120 calories of food..."
                          Her - "They are food"

                          • if they were orange tic tacs she might have a point
                            beautiful
                            yeah you are

                            Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                              They were multicolored. K doesn't discriminate in her love of all things tictac.
