    It IS crazy. But CW goes: "Yogurt is a health food, and healthy food does not have fat!" Sure, it has sugar, artificial colors/flavors/sweeteners, & HFCS, but fat? The HoRrOrs!!!!!!

    I'm in GA. We have 7 Oaks, Fage, TJ's, and a couple of other brands of whole yogurt, available at Whole foods, Trader Joe's, The Fresh Market, and urban & suburban Krogers. Fage is available in pints whole (although TJ recently continued the whole fat pints GRRR), but somewhere in New England I saw Fage quarts for crazy wonderful prices!!

    My 80 year old father was complaining of headaches and disorientation. My sister took him the emergency ward at the local hospital to get diagnosed. they said he had a 92% arterial blockage in his left carotid artery. The told him he needed fast surgery and said they wanted to keep him in the hospital until the surgery could be set up to remove the blockage. Scary stuff.


    The doctor did his usual spiel about cholesterol, blah, blah, blah.

    After the doctor left the nurse came in with dinner; Fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and some mushy booger colored substance on the side that maybe have once been green beans before being canned then boiled mercilessly for an hour.

    I went out and brought him a gourmet omelet from the cafeteria. Visitors eat better than the patients.



    My dad gave up eggs 10 years ago on advice from another doctor.

    I have friends who work out every day so that they can eat whatever they want... mostly desserts, all day long. I try to explain the 80% diet theory... but they are convinced that a half hour workout entitles them to eat 1,000s of calories of sweets all the time.

    I can't STAND my co-workers. They are so ignorant about nutrition and health and yet they spout off. But, I'm still the only fat one, so I don't say anything because I know it would look crazy for the fat girl to talk the opposite of CW about nutrition. I suppose they have the benefit of never having gotten fat in the first place and having a hormonal problem.

    For example, today someone said that bikram yoga is good for weight loss because it makes you sweat a lot. wth??? And there are too many people crash dieting and stopping, happy that they lost 6 pounds in one week. That just sounds incredibly unhealthy.

    Oh man, the yogurt thing. Greek yogurt seems to be the new in thing in my area, but the brand nearly every store carries is Chobani, which seems to only exist in low-fat and fat-free versions. Fat-free greek yogurt! Boggles the mind. Thank Grok for the Trader Joe's down the street, which has the real stuff. Which reminds me, I need to go stock up.

    Oh, how I feel your pain. One of my main motivations for weight loss is so that my loved ones will ask me what I'm doing, or believe me when I say it.
