    Yeah- as opposed to sweet corn. You know- the stuff they feed the cows to make them fat . . .

    "cow corn" is what city people call field corn.
    Field corn is what the majority of farmers grow.
    It's what is used to make corn starch, corn flakes, corn oil...oh, yeah, and some of it is fed to cows

    Speaking of which, I work at corporation that is hired by states to produce standardized testing. Here is a part of a passage that is going to be on a reading test for 10th graders.
    "Dieting is not the answer.

    Many teens turn to unhealthy dieting methods to lose weight, including eating very little, cutting out whole groups of foods (like grain products), skipping meals, and fasting. These methods can leave out important foods you need to grow.

    In fact, unhealthy dieting can actually cause you to gain more weight because it often leads to a cycle of eating very little, then overeating or binge eating. Also, unhealthy dieting can put you at greater risk for growth and emotional problems."

    And then after saying you should eat veggies and fruit and low fat dairy heres the kicker:

    "Go whole grain.

    Grain foods help give you energy. Whole-grain foods like whole-wheat bread, brown rice, and oatmeal usually have more nutrients than refined grain products. They give you a feeling of fullness and add bulk to your diet.

    Try to get 6 servings of grains every day, with at least 3 servings from whole-grain sources."

    Then a lovely table with how much of what whole grain shite you should be eating.....
    I wish i could just delete this.....
    But at least the bit at the top about some kids cutting out grains (Y U NO EAT GRAIN???) gives me hope for some kids out there. If they don't get in trouble for having an eating disorder that is.

    Fixed!

    The hospital that I work for has a program where you go to a website and take a biometric health screening and sign up to read nutrition seminars and whatnot, if you do this you earn points, earn all your points and you get money off you health insurance premiums. Well, I earned all my points (cause as long as you fill it out you do) but I was a little irked that my nutrition score indicated I had a risk of heart disease and stroke because I don't eat any whole grains!!

    Not sure how CW this is, but I've spent the last hour arguing with someone who said that taking supliments is just as healthy as getting nutrients from food. They also said that a type 1 diabetic who is taking insulin has no illness, because it's being treated.

    Well, to be fair, as a fat guy who has tried a bunch of WOE/diets etc I had never seen so many suppliments being touted as when I joined MDA. Check out some posts and the person's list of suppliments is longer than their food log. As such it seems to be neither funny nor CW.
    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
