All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Diet as in, how do you eat? Not necessarily to lose weight or maintain blood sugar, etc.
Are you vegetarian/vegan? Don't eat certain foods? Nothing processed?
And if so, is it for religious purposes or other?
Note: if you do not wish to state why, I am not forcing you to.
I am a picky eater too. But i try to be adventurous every now and again
with the help of my doctor. i don't eat pork of any kind anymore because i get vilely ill when i do. someday wanna try a wild boar someone has hunted down and see if that would make me sick to.
if i could i would buy free range / grass fed meat and dairy. can't afford it at the mo but i try.
obviously i am a HAPPY Omnivore. i've been getting more and more away from processed foods. their is just to much BS crap in em to bother with. i just realized the other day that i have no boxed foods in my house. couldn't remember the last time i had. personal victory there.
ex: if i eat any amount of MSG? my joints swell and ache. hence, nothing with MSG or any MSG like chemicals out there. don't think the FDA fucks haven't changed the name of MSG..cause they have. jut like they did nutrasweet.
ya wanna know why our nation is fat n getting fatter? because the nutrition in the food isn't there anymore for various reasons so people are eating n eating to get the vital nutrients their body is literally die-ing (can't remember how to spell that proper) for and nadaso fatter they get. it is true we are the most overfed under nutritional nation in the world.
not so much for religious reasons but just Common sense reasons.
HA!! you and i George have something in common. i don't eat mushrooms either.. i mean it's a FUNGUS!! all i can see em as now is a growth on some nasty swamp dwelling creatures foot. just can't do it man!
so long and thanks for all the fish! :D *snicker*
i can't eat liver either. my mom used to make fried liver an onions constantly and the shit just GROWS in your mouth...rather starve than eat the shit. and really, WHY would you want to eat 1 of several FILTER organs? for me just no. hate kidneys to for that matter. GAG no!
i do love me some sushi...not necessarily sashimi but sushi. and i go off track again..*L*
the older i am getting the better i am eating. i don't eat sugar cause the GMO bs. i use honey for sweetener or stevia. oh Gods!! gluten free waffles real butter n honey..*SWOON*
oh the only soy i eat is tofu. soy isn't good for you unless it's fermented. now i only cook with coconut oil. i read alot on nutrition and it's scary whats being done to the American food supply.
there ya have it! :D
wanted to mention i am also eating smaller portions because i bought smaller dishes. :D working on getting smaller silver ware that is adult sized an non toddler. i use salad plates rather than dinner plates stuff like that. smaller desert bowls rather than regular sized bowls. etc
i've heard the smaller plate trick and have also tried it, it does work. tricking your eyes that is haha.
and I am similar except with ground beef. not that I physically cannot eat it, I just do not have a taste for it [which i find really funny because my gods are hindu]
i have gallbladder problems and lemme tell ya, when i eat ANY kind of pork? OMG! it's agony. so..i eat turkey bacon n such. not exactly the same? but close enough for me! suffered SUFFERED for YEARS before i got a pc and started researching. text book case. now, if i accidentally get pork? i have found eating sliced cucumber helps. cures the pain within minutes!
think i might found the smaller non toddler silverware. there are on ebay these lil
"travel silverware " kits with a spoon, fork an chopsticks. figuring on buying several of those. gonna order some next month n see. looked at toddler silverware? yeah no.
i always thought portion control was bs. but no. it isn't and i LOVE my new plates!! a 10 inch plate is a serving platter not a plate!! gadzooks!
i have weird tastes in some things. i ADORE square dishes!! clear glass. found some recently at walmart, $2 each. got 2 of the salad plates, 2 of the bowls. when i go back gonna get to more of those.. eventually i'll have a nice set of exactly what i want. the corners are softened rounded, but still square!! :D
i always wondered why they didn't make canned goods square. they'd fit better on the shelf AND they already make spam in rectangle cans. so why not?
i am changing my habits to be healthier and lose weight. my health is being adversely effected by the weight so...working on meself inside n out to get better! :D
there are reasons besides laziness and gluttony that i am overweight. i get sick of hearing folks badmouthing fat folk. i figure when others lives are perfect an their shit is so squared they can stack it? THEN they can call me out for my bad's till then? they need a muzzle!
ANYWHO!! good luck to us ALL!! and i am proud of all of us who are trying to get better/BE BETTER humans!! :D
i couldn't agree more. i am sorry about your pork allergin [not sure if correct phrasing here] but at least you found ways to aid yourself!
and yes, why aren't the plates and cans square? seriously.
same reasons for myself, starting a diet similar to paleo and ugh, it's so hard but it will be worth it :D
good luck to you as well!
I am dieting to lose weight and make myself healthier again. I am not a vegan/vegetarian. I have to have meat. I do not eat certain meats though and try to eat organic, especially grass-fed meat. I have a few conditions that make it hard to lose the weight that I gained, but I am following a diet called The Fat Flush Plan that I think will help me finally with my issues. I also don't follow any diet related to religious issues.
I've never heard of that tbh, what does that entail?
I am a vegan of three years myself. I would not say it is for any religious reasons exactly other than my own ethical/moral notions. I've also found that it does wonders for my health and my peace of mind.
I don't go out of my way to get 'organic' stuff from Trader Joe's/Wholefoods due to costs, but I get everything I need and more.
Since I am of the notion that I only get one life, I may as well enjoy it and be as healthy and compassionate as I possibly can.
how very true, thanks for sharing :D
