    Congrats on the lap band removal JES. Yep, I think the only thing that didn't have HFCS on my friend's plate was the lettuce. And all these NEW surgeries and designer drugs out on the market today?I think Steppenwolf had a song about it in the 60s called "The Pusher".

    I'm a few days behind and only this far in the thread. MamaGrok you might want to try searching for 'sunsuits' they are long sleeved (or to the elbow) and usually down to the top of the knees.

    I'm thinking the one at the bottom of the page here is what you're after

    I don't understand how CW people don't grasp that a constant rollercoaster is probably not the ideal way to live.

    Yes, yes, and yes. Really - it just shouldn't be that hard to get through the day without obsessing about food. I used to think I was broken, that there was something seriously wrong with my physiology, because I couldn't stop overeating on a LFHC eating plan. I mean, everyone (read: CW) says that's the way to eat for health and weight loss, right? So why is my stomach growling a mere half-hour after I eat a fibre-rich cereal with low-fat milk? It seems to me that food obsessions are caused by SAD/CW eating, because the body is deprived of what it really needs.

    I tracked my food for the first few months of Primal eating, but now I find that I don't have to, and I'm still losing weight and feeling good. Obviously I have days where I eat more or less than average, and sometimes I'll make a modest adjustment (e.g. dialing back on foods like potatoes and cheese if I notice a stall), but I don't feel the need to obsessively weigh and measure my food. It's very freeing - and also makes it easier to eat out too!

    I used to eat oatmeal every morning with my sister. Then 45 minutes later we would both be seriously hungry so I'd make us some whole grain toast. Then about 2 hours later we'd have lunch. We thought about food and ate food all day because we were constantly hungry. We actually laughed about it the other day because now I only eat once or twice a day and have no problems with constant hunger. Some days I get up and go about my day and forget to eat. CW eating absolutely caused food obsession for me.

    What is interesting is that that is also the case for anorexics. Tracking food and mindfulness causes people not to eat enough. Knowing everything about what you eat, tracking it and savouring every bite is a symptom of anorexia nervosa

    You know- I am so glad that oatmeal never filled you up. I'd eat that stuff and be hungry in an hour. No matter how much I ate. Everyone was all "hearty oatmeal keeps you full all day". I thought I was a freak of nature that found oatmeal as filling as a doughnut.

    I LOVE EGGS. I love every morning eating 3 eggs and it is healthy for me! 3 eggs, bacon and some fruit and veggies and I don't eat for 12-14 hours.

    Oatmeal is filling when you have it with cream

    There are healthy and disordered forms of a lot of behaviours. I had exercise bulimia in my teens, but that does not make thoughtful, planned exercise a disorder. Also see orthorexia as compared to health-conscious eating.
