*chuckle* Well, if someone's looking to pick a fight, claiming they
were called a liar is as good as any other I suppose. Toss in a
toothless challenge from a husband and it's redneck time at the ol'
I'm looking for facts & the fair exchange of ideas, not tales full of
meaningless claims or irrelevant exceptions. I don't accept the idea
that someone could go a month without food and not lose weight or that
stopping smoking (alone) would 'cause' someone to pack on 100 lbs or
that a 1% body fat pro athlete is obese or that aliens are
forcing-feeding them at night to keep them fat or whatever. Those sorts
of claims may be good for the National Enquirer, but I'm allowed to
reject that sort of thing.
Anyway, the discussion has had a lot of interesting exchanges of
information and it's encouraged me to work toward more healthy feasts
and recipe redaction. Maybe others have learned something, too.
