Yep Heather, and there is a lot of fun videos on youtube too. I mean some are so silly, in regards to exercising,
it would make any kid or adult want to do it. There was one I use to watch that was so hilarious and then I
found myself doing it too.
Well sure, nic338, you want to enjoy your food. But seriously, heart disease, (such as clogged arteries),
diabetes (especially type II), colon cancer, and many cancers, are all preventive. It's from eating a poor
diet rich in fat. That's what clogs things up. And it really doesn't mean you must restrict meat entirely
from your diet.
There's a large variety of foods you can eat that are not meat and are foods that are good for you, and
won't put the weight on.
Sure, you have to wash your veggies really good because if you buy them in the store, they've been
sprayed with insecticides and heaven only knows what else. There's not much you can do about the
way they are grown other than growing them your self.
I think it's very obvious what is going on in America. We use to not have all the obesity that we have
today. Rarely did you see an over weight kid years ago. Now many of the kids are over weight too.
It's from all the fast food, meat, sugars.
It's not hard, especially with the internet now to find cool recipes that are delicious. I'm always finding
good recipes on 'all recipes'.
Here's an example day:
Breakfast: orange, oatmeal, water
Lunch: green salad, apple, water
Snack: bran muffin, small lemonade, water
Supper: brown rice with veggies and perhaps a tad of soy sauce ( I make myself a big dish of this), water,
sweet tea (yep, I drink sweet tea but try and go low on the sugar), jello
Snack: watermelon or cantelope, or melon, or some type of fruit (I'm up late usually and always have to have
a snack or two). Some times I eat a bowl of cheerios with skim milk, no sugar.
There's lots of great meals you can make without meat and have a large variety of foods and meals.
I eat spagetti, chili, pizza, etc only I don't use meat. I like greens, most any kind, spinach, mustard greens,
turnip greens...I like vinegar and put vinegar in my greens. I can make a meal out of beets. I do eat a lot
Just saying, it can be hard at first if you are use to eating large meals and meals in which there is always
eggs, sausage, bacon, hamburger, steak, chicken, etc. Start out by simply cutting back. Try something
different a couple of days a week. It won't be long, you will be enjoying the new way you are eating and
having fun eating something not so routine.
