My weight problem is due to forgetting or putting off eating. I used to get
so busy/engrossed with something that I would not eat until I got a headache
or finish what I was doing. So my metabolism slowed down and so my body
stores that fat. It has been found that such a diet as I have been doing
can lead to diabetes and some other ailments. So I am trying to reverse the
habit before severe problems set in.
Fruit juices, especially grape, orange and pineapple juices are good things
in my diet (and better for nutrition then soda). I have learned that
pineapple has similar effects with a diet that grapefruit does, just be
careful if you are on heart medication.
As for the "agricultural lobbyists" I don't believe they were the ones who
created the food pyramid in it's original form, I believe the creators were
from the medical field from what nutritionist had decided from info that
they had at the time.
My personal blame rests with the agricultural lobbies, who got their
version of the "Food Pyramid" recommending the largest portion of a
"healthy diet" to include more cereals and starches than any other food
group. That and the "Super Size" movement, as has been pointed out by
My personal excuse lies with my ancestors, of course. You should see
the women on my mother's side, who look like me. I'm descended from
generations of people who survived famines and other hungry times. The
skinny ones died off, the survivors tend to lay in fat reserves for the
next inevitable crisis. My blood pressure and other signs are pretty
darned healthy. Evolution In Action, Bay-Beee! ;-)
If you have a problem with my weight, it is =your= problem. Would some
chocolate make you feel better?
