What am I doing? Depends on the day.
Eat more and weigh less with Volumetrics - CNN.com
From the intro:
You know what makes more sense? Eating real, nutritious food and eating as much of it as you damn well please.You're no diet dummy -- your "unrealistic" detector is on high alert. Cut out carbs? Fast on herbal juice blends? Please.
So what a relief to rediscover Volumetrics, a way of eating that just plain makes sense.
Just got invited to an event on fb. The event is titled "EAT CANDY to fight cancer".
Description: "Who knew you could help fight against cancer by eating cotton candy, chocolate fondue, and sipping on some chai? Come support us in fighting against cancer for Relay For Life -- an initiative through the American Cancer Society."
I was out walking with my sister in law and couple of her buddies and the topic of diet came up. Normally, I keep my mouth shut and let people delude themselves, 'cause they sure as sin won't hear me. My sister in law mentioned that I'd lost some weight and had more energy, but she could never eat the way I do. The two friends pounced on that and asked what I did. I responded with "The human body is not evolutionarily designed for grains or beans, but for meats, fats, and vegetation."
"Grains are vegetation," the guy responded.
"Dude, if you can go out into the country here and gather up enough grains of wild wheat to make a loaf of bread every week, I might believe you. I just know my body runs better and my thyroid behaves better with no grains or beans."
"That's not what Dr. Oz says, he says you should eat beans everyday because it's healthier than meat."
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
