If I see another advert for cereal/oats companies holding cholesterol/weightloss challenges I'm going to burn my TV.
I've eaten bacon pretty much every day in the past 3 weeks and lost 2.5" off my waist. I know what I'd rather eat for breakfast.

I still buy bread for the rest of my family (although I have noticed their bread consumption has spontaneously gone down since I've switched them to mostly primal!).
Emblazoned on the package this week is:From Grains to Glory. As part of their promotion for the Olympics and their sponsorship of the team. Yay for the athletes, but I really disliked the implication that grains will help you win glory.
Then I thought, perhaps I should I view it as "Rags to Riches', and the grains are the pathetic start?
Exactly. Many of us have gone from grains to glory!

Not funny, just sad... This quote was pulled from an article about McDonald's campaign to start listing foods under 400 calories on their menus.
"A lot of people still think of McDonald's as fast food, and they are doing their part to provide the right items … to create balance and variety," Tristano said. The underlying strategy is to get very health-oriented consumers to recognize McDonald's as a good-for-you restaurant and to go with frequency, he added."

I was listening to the radio yesterday and the announcer was talking about getting protein for cheap/eating healthy after gastric bypass. She recommended skipping things like chicken for "protein rich" grains and beans to save money. Then went on to talk about purchasing protein powder online to save money.
So you basically paid how much money for a surgery that requires you to drink protein shakes. Seriously- skip getting cut up and just eat protein powder.
Or better yet, try paleo or primal.
Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.
