    "The Egyptians ate more fruit and vegetables and less meat than we do and their meat was leaner. They also led a more active lifestyle and were not thought to have smoked. Given that they developed atherosclerosis anyway, Thomas said, it becomes even more important to take measures to forestall development of the disease as long as possible, including stopping smoking, eating less red meat and losing weight."

    logical conclusion FAIL.

    First of all this thread is awesome.

    Now for a story from work today. They've started up this little "competition" where we break up into teams, wear a pedometer everyday, and try to reach a goal for miles walked. OK so far a good thing, we all need to walk more and we know Mark endorses the slow pace over chronic cardio. They give us a little package with some information inside, one of the handouts is on nutrition. As you can guess, it instructs us to avoid butter, cheese and whole milk and even guacamole. It tells us to eat whole grains and salads with low fat dressing. Sigh....
    Then another handout on the "dangers of the sun" which actually states "there is no such thing as a safe healthy tan!"
    For some reason there was a protein bar included in the package which includes peanuts, peanut oil and soy. Well they got the protein part right anyway.

    Walking through the supermarket, I took a quick trip into the frozen aisle. One freezer door was marked with a big vinyl sticker that said "NATURAL FOODS!" What was inside that freezer? Morning Star "burgers", Quorn, Gardein franken-"meats".

    There is nothing "natural" about foods cobbled together with fillers and additives and meant to mimic chicken, beef, and pork. But apparently, if it's vegetarian it's "natural" around here.

    I braved Costco today, needing to stock up on a few things. My cousin asked if I could find out whether they stocked a certain type of turkey bacon that her family really likes, so I said sure. I walked up and down the aisles, couldn't spot it, so I asked one of the workers there. They pointed me to the vegetarian section, saying that's where they kept foods like that.

    Uh huh. K thx bye.

    That is hilarious. Mainly because I think of vegetarian foods as being that frankenshit that vegetarians eat because they want meat but wont eat it - meat substitutes, tofu, and the like. Turkey bacon fits in that category for me. It's bacon for people who want bacon but for some reason wont eat the real thing. (and sure there might be a good reason for it, but the point stands).
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    I was in a store a few days ago and saw this book:

    Crazy Plates: Low-Fat Food So Good You'll Swear It's Bad For You!

    ...and it probably is.
