Honestly, people, I'm just doing my part to save people from all that terrible, terrible meat. I left them all the lovely, healthy pasta they want!
    if he wants the meatballs back put them in his pocket.

    I have the misfortune of only having my daughter 50% of the time so I cannot control all she eats. I let her go to my brothers in-laws for dinner one day, I believe I was busy painting my house. Anyhow, she was not fussy on what they had cooked (probably meat and veggies, something fairly good) so instead they gave her chocolate bars. She never goes there alone again.

    Yes, the age-ism is really terrible. I lost 15 lbs and they're just like, "Well, you're young." No, I actually spent the time to learn what worked for me, not some cookie-cutter diet for the masses. And I fucking hate hearing shit about "gawd my arteries are creaking shut right now". JUST EAT YOUR BACON AND LIKE IT.

    I hear you, on that. I also liken the age argument to the weight/appearance argument, in that, my friend would wonder why I'm shifting my eating strategy, saying I'm not overweight; or, I don't have much weight to lose. If there's one thing CW has to come to grips with, is weight not equaling health.

Well, some background: my grandma is 91 years old and has had digestive problems for some 9-10 months now. She had suffered from food allergies and some form of colitis (or IBS) even previously, but now it has gotten so bad she has to eat a really restrictive diet The doctors haven't been able to help much, they told her she could eat anything, just limit raw fruit and vegetables and not eat too much fibre and absolutely restrict fat... And she has followed their advice, basically subsisting on boiled or baked potatoes, boiled carrots, boiled rice, chicken breast, baked fish (no fat), cottage cheese, bread, crackers and chocolate cookies... Of course, her blood sugar is borderline high and she has non-alcoholic fatty liver disease... She finds all other foods irritating, even plain boiled eggs So yesterday I went to see her. We are celebrating Easter now (we are Orthodox Christians) and she repeatedly asked me to take some cottage cheese rolls she had baked herself (apart from the traditional Easter raisin bread and eggs). I refused and she insisted that they were very healthy - no fat at all... I replied that my standards of healthy are very different now - they imply eliminating flour and sugar and emphasizing good fats like butter. She looked puzzled and sad. I really don't know what to advise her any more and I don't want to contradict her doctors. Besides she's quite old, her digestive system is 91 years old too, so maybe "my diet" would hurt her... But it definitely cannot be good for her to eat that much bread, crackers, cookies, potatoes and rice
    Yeah, those aren't going to help her at all. Grains, and wheat in particular, tears up the intestinal lining. It seems as though her doctors are trying to minimize the number of bowel movements she has and there by reduce the number of times she deals with pain. Look up information on healing the gut, a lot of the recipes for that are still compatible with low-fat bullshit, or at least have the fat hidden away.

    Food fail today, spotted chocolate in the baking aisle labeled as not needing to be melted. I was, naturally, baffled by this, so I read the ingredients. It was cocoa powder mixed into partially hydrogenated oil. W. T. F.? I thought even CW knew that stuff was bad?

    Possibly, but it would be rewarding. And let's face it, more than a lifetimes worth of people need help.
