Re: Protein Question

If you eat a boat load of fruit, you will get plenty of protein. But now when I say that, I mean literally a boat load. lol That being said I have to add, when you say grains, does this include oatmeal/barley, and corn/grits? PS - I'm southern so grits are common here. They are basically ground up w...

Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

Sorry if I was argumentative. As Temple Grandin once said in an interview, there are two types of folks in this world - the idealist and the practical person. She said she was the practical type, as in, not "what would be ideal?" but "what can I do now?". This was her reply when ...

Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

Well sounds like you are still enjoying the starches (beans/wheat) and drinking plenty of water so whatever makes you (and your body) happy!

Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

Anyone who says it didn't work for them (probably most of them) probably 1) didn't eat enough and 2) didn't drink enough water. That's just my opinion. I go through a gallon of water a day. But that's just me and I don't mind what is required of a more ideal diet for a human being. If you are happy ...

Re: Okay, population Earth, we're 16.5 million tons over wei

disgusting

if only we could vacuum it out of people and shoot it into outer space.

Then again, the world would just go to Micky D's and get fat again.

Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

That's fine if you're satisfied with what you're eating. It doesn't change the fact that, as a human being, you're peeing out probably 30% of the 40% protein and forcing your body to spend energy and resources on converting all that fat into sugar so it can use it, excreting it out the skin pores (o...

Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

It should be amusing, because anyone that procalims that they have the "Best diet for everyone" should be avoided at all costs! I don't see dolphins eating bananas and monkeys eating fish. Why do humans have to be so different from each other? They're not. We're all too different for a &q...

Re: "Whole Food" Diet?

I think the biggest challenge to this would simply be mental. IF you can learn to eat food for fuel instead of for pleasure, then the problem is solved. no, I really LOVE my simple food! I am not forcing myself or crave for other complicated food (though indian food is always welcome, but I thibk o...

Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

I follow Dr. McDougall and my diet is starch based. I used to eat mostly legumes (starches also) but then I got into pasta, rice, and now potatoes. I eat all four at any given day, as long as I'm getting my carbs in through those, the protein and fat come along just perfectly. I also noticed on anot...

Re: Endurance athlete Vs Powerlifter

Sorry to hear about the heart thing. I have (at least did when young) aortic stenosis too and when I tried out for track in middle school all the adults involved (mother esp lol) made it an issue and I never did it. :-/ Has not been a problem with weight lifting or treadmill though, and my present p...

Re: Help me control my eating ?

Eating starches such as potatoes will curb your appetite without giving you any permanent weight gain. Since you have recently been on a fast and lost weight your body is probably still in starvation mode so some initial water gain may appear. Be patient it will level out. That has been my experienc...

Re: Endurance athlete Vs Powerlifter

You look great now!

I honestly don't agree with the myth that power lifting makes one "fat" and "bulky" and you can't have an aesthetically pleasing physique being one!

You can't build good muscle without good strength!

Re: High uric acid?!

Do you drink tea? Get enough water? Eat too much spinach?

Those are the only questions I can think of.
