Here we go again. All this talk about food drives me to the fridge or store. Lots of good ideas, healthy or not! I have another friend that eats only healthy food as prescribed by a nutritionist. He has gained 25 ponds. Too much of a good thing. Moderation. We can become a country with the healthiest fat people in the world. Jim

I just read a book called "Grain Brain" and it is pretty good. He is low carb and gluten free and does a good job of explaining why. The main thing is stay away from wheat products and sugar. He says whole grain wheat is just as bad as white bread.

I'm guessing he found the 25 that I lost.

Other experts say that eliminating entire food groups, such as whole grains, can lead to malnutrition/dietary deficiencies/health issues.

I think one has to find what works for them......and do it.

Yea, that.

The only thing "experts" in fitness and nutrition will agree on, is that nobody agrees on anything. For every person advocating "Diet A", there will be a person telling you that "Diet A" is bad for you.

And so it goes.

I think that is exactly the case.

Whatever works for you.

I think that's the secret. For everybody who eliminates grain, and feels better for doing so, there's somebody else who eliminates meat, and feels better for doing so.

Personally, I believe in eating everything - in moderation. We eat meat, but in smaller quantities and organic. We eat bread, but not white bread with a high glycemic index. We eat butter, milk, cream, in small quantities.

We do all that, but seldom organic. Haven't felt the need.

My homemade breads are mixed grain.....unbleached white as a base, with wheat, rye, steel cut oats, etc, added.

If we buy store bread, it is 100% whole wheat or whole grain rye.

We eat whole grain pasta some of the time, but not always.

I have read that 95% of your grains need to be whole grains, so we are subscribing to that philosophy.

Seems to make good sense, and allows the pastas we enjoy.

I guess one needs to define need. Every time you eat meat and dairy that is non organic, you are undoubtedly ingesting some quantities of antibiotics that you don't need and with that goes a possibility of ingesting antibiotic resistant bacteria that you certainly don't need. In the case of non organic meat and some dairy you are also ingesting growth hormones that I'm guessing you don't need. Non organic grown fruits and vegetables have a possibility of containing herbicide and pesticide.

You know the old saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? that's questionable if it's an non organic apple. Non organic apples are the produce most likely to have pesticide contamination.

The act of eating any purchased food is a gamble. The thing organic food does is make the odds more in your favor.

I've never left Las Vegas as a winner and have never won a Lottery. Therefor I eat organically produced food whenever possible.

I know, there lots of reasons to go organic.

I also have a sweet tooth, and Doug likes his salty/crunchy things. Both get eaten, also fried food on occasion......because we enjoy them.

Like all of life, eating is a roll of the dice, you must decide how much you wish to risk and how you want to risk it.

The thing I feel is very important is that one educates themselves so they fully understand the risks and the odds when they are gambling.

I would feel bad if someone drove off the cliff, because no one told him a car has a brake. If he drove off the cliff because he was trying to see how close he could get before he had to step on the brake, it wouldn't bother me so much.

A cholesterol test, blood sugar, and a scale may tell the truth. A look in the mirror after a shower may be enough to know something isn't right.

Healthy eating and plenty of exercise are good for you.

That didn't last long, did it?

There's only been a few recipes shared, and a whole lot of arguing/discussion about what's healthy and what is not!!!
