There were meager times and there were times where being round was a sign of affluence...

What I meant to say is that we should stick with the stuff our bodies have evolved to exploit for nutrients.

Unfortunately my body is over exploitive. Big Grin

I don't care for catfish...but living in the south means I can't admit it out loud. Undecided

Seafood and meat are kind of a battle for me. I grew up in Iowa and Wisconsin...grandpa raised cattle and hogs. I ate good meat. Moving away left me wanting, but not being able to find, that quality of meat - even from meat markets. The other grandfather was a fisherman...the seafood I ate when visiting there was phenomenal and cooked by people who really knew how to prepare it since it was the main food source. Unless I eat at a good quality restaurant I find myself disappointed or at least not impressed.

RE: Helpful Food Info
I am lactose intolerant to milk and most dairy products.

For a milk substitute I drink either Soy or Almond milk; great sources of protein and calcium.

For a cheese substitute, I try to avoid vegan cheese due to the taste being rather bland. There are often natural lactose free cheeses, however. The Boar's Head imported swiss brand is my favorite.

I drink Lactaid milk (no lactose) and their ice cream is good too. I will look for the Boar's Head cheese. Thx

I have never tried Lactaid, though I have seen commercials about it.

With Boar's Head only their imported swiss is lactose free, unfortunately.

Ok. I also drink Dairy Pure which is the same lactose free milk. It tastes just like milk because it is milk. It is a bit sweet because the sugars are already broke down but it's good and comes in whole, 2% and fat free.

I've heard about BPA but this makes me more concerned now:

RE: Helpful Food Info
I've recently began attempting to "eat better". Raisin Bran instead of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Apples, grapes and other fruits as snacks. Turkey sandwich in place of fast food lunch crap with carrots, olives, celery, tomatoes, pickles etc as sides. And most importantly, when it comes to dinner, managing my portions. The obesity issue I'd estimate as more often than not, a consumption issue.

Add in some weekly exercise along with a fairly active 12 hour shift job and in 6 months I went from 210 pounds to just under 190 at 6' 1". I haven't felt this good since high school and am in much better shape...now just if I can eliminate the occasional cigarette.

Oh and probably the biggest thing of all, I've nearly eliminated my soda consumption, which was very hard for me being that I grew up drinking Dr. Pepper, Pepsi and Mountain Dew.
