    Red face Food sayings

    I've just read this article (some of the advice I disagree with, but a lot of it is sound).

    http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...o-1975552.html

    The bit that interested me most was the use of food sayings from around the world. I particularly liked:

    "To say "I'm hungry" in French you say "J'ai faim" ("I have hunger") and when you are finished, you do not say that you are full, but "Je n'ai plus faim" ("I have no more hunger"). That is a completely different way of thinking about satiety. So: ask yourself not, "Am I full?" but, "Is my hunger gone?" That moment will arrive several bites sooner."

    Pre PB, I for one would eat until bursting point, so this would have been good advice for me!

    What are your favourite food sayings and why?

    - bananas are not food, they are sweets.
    - No meat? (with a frown on face).

    Both heard during my stints in West Africa.

    Two mantras I had all during my weight loss came from my BIL...

    Here's an ironic one I heard in Spain: "Dame pan y llámame tonto," meaning "give me bread and call me stupid" (meaning, essentially, as long as I'm fed, I don't care). But from a paleo/primal perspective, you could totally interpret it literally as "bread's for idiots!"
    "To shed all the illusory rights & hesitations of history demands the economy of some legendary Stone Age--shamans not priests, bards not lords, hunters not police, gatherers of paleolithic laziness, gentle as blood, going naked for a sign or painted as birds, poised on the wave of explicit presence, the clockless nowever." --Hakim Bey, TAZ
