Yes
China...bootcamp is very different! I am not that physically fit so
this will work for now...getting the workouts to line up with
eating is tough...but when you my age...you need both for that darn
metbolism!

Please enjoy
yourself Z!

Bevdee...let's let
it go...the topic will only start trouble here, let's move on
ok?

So...on that note,
let's all have a good day...and let's have some positive vibes,
prayers and thoughts sent out to all...we all need them!

Well
hey puptent, I like to cook all kinds of things. I like to make my
own salsa from tomoatoes, onions, jalapenos and chilis from the
garden. Not mine, someone elses!!! lol. The hotter the
better.

I have a friend
who gives me pears, and my aunt gives me apples so I make butters
out of those. I do that in the crock pot. I'm so glad I'm not a
pioneer woman. I like modern help, like crock pot, blender,
lectricity.

barefootgirl I didnt mean any trouble by the question. I
thought Survivor of Abuse left when she got busy with a move to
another city, and because her friend Ladeska had pretty much left
the site. I don't remember a fight. I've wondered about her
often.

BFG,
we all smell the delicious aroma from your cafe and can't get food
off our minds. Food helps to calm me. Sugar makes everything in my
life right except for my weight.

i am
a hefty guy and i dont care, and ladies if a guy wont be with you
because you have a little meat on you then fuck him, i wouldnt dare
date a girl who asked me to go to the gym so i could be more
attratcive, the only tiem i actually bothered working out was when
my friend asked me to, and when i asked her why she told me
"because i want you to live forever" that just broke me in half, no
one has ever told me that before, i actually did go to the gym for
a while, but the hell with it, i hate the gym, if i a oing to be
single i might as well be happy with myself than miserable at the
gym, same goes to you ladies, work out for good reasons not for
bullshit, trust me, no guy left his girl because she got a cute pot
belly, he left her becasue she lost all self respect and destroyed
her body and turned into a blimp.

@putent

Yes sugar & to
a further degree 'chocolate' - giver of like, Mother of us
all.

Imagine a wotld
without chocolate?? Gasp!!

Yea, sugar the
problem: Heartburn, lethargy, teeth decay etc. Excessive sugar
intake the root cause of candida with its' fair share of spinoff
ailmeants: heartburn, fatigue, organ stress.

I use Stevia or
Xylosweet - Almost no calories. No chemicals. Natural ingredirents.
The Stevia plant, native to paraguay has a slight aftertase but not
noticable in baking. There is birch & an extract of corn for
the Xylo sweeteber & is very palettable & actually shown to
be good for ones teeth. No unpleasant after-taste. Drawback is it's
$10/lb.

I always feel so
much better when avoiding sugar as much as possible. Can't remember
that last time I laid hands on a spoonful of the typical processed
sugar.It's unapealling to me now. Yuk. There's already enuff of it
the foods we eat.

I eat properly for
awhile, then feel good so, cheat a bit intil my guts start
bothering me again. Then back to the eating well & so on. It's
cyclic typical I've seen/heard.

So often we humans
don't take action until we're experiencing physical
problems.

craig
co. I definatly feel better with out sugar. I looked up Stevia,
strangely enough it does have side effects. I can easily go without
sugar, but if it is staring me right in the face I have no
control.

pt,
Gotta be careful about who puts out the reports. No documented side
effects that I am aware of. It's been used safely for centuries in
other countries without ill effects so, not sure where you got that
info from. If it's from the FDA ar anyone associated with them then
it's bunk. Also, it makes a huge difference in how the stevia is
extracted/processed as to the end quality of it. It's easy to take
something normally healthy & fuck it up by
processing.

puptent and cc, I tried stevia and I did not like it. Maybe the
way it was processed, I had a bad reaction.

I have many food
sensitivities. I cannot have any artificial sweeteners. They tear
up my stomach. I can only use sugar or honey, and use raw cane
sugar most of the time, not white sugar or HFCS. I also cannot have
too much sodium. I try my best to stay away from additives,
preservatives, food coloring, MSG and food chemicals. I cannot chew
sugarless gum with sorbitol. I am also lactose
intolerant.

Most of the food I
eat is whole food and natural foods. I read all the food labels.
Some of my family says I am just a "picky eater." Sometimes they
will put stuff I can't have in the food (my sister-in-law is famous
for putting in artificial sweetener in stuff, and not saying
anything). They think they are "teaching me a lesson" for being
"picky". All it does is just keeps me sick for days and then I
don't want to eat anything.

I have had people
make snide remarks and comments that I am a "fanatic" or a "health
nut". Not necessarily, I just don't like to be sick. My parents
never raised us on processed foods. My Mom did not know how to cook
anything that came from a box. She cooked our meals from scratch
everyday. She came from the old country, and did not know how to
cook any other way. The boxes had English words written on them
anyway, and she could not always read all of the directions!

China
- Stevia a 100%natural. Not an artificial sweetener. The only
negative I've ever heard about it is that it has a slight
after-taste. Up to 300 times sweeter than sugar & is measured
by the pinch. Completely safe & many, many times sweeter than
sugar & without the negative repercussions.

Despite this, the
FDA has only allowed it to be solf as a dietary supplement so that
the masses won't use it. In the past some big companies have tryied
to push for its' use in their sugary foods but were denied as it
would have killed the sugar industry. Imagine being able to enjoy
sweet without the calories & toxic affects of sugar. They won't
hear of that. Again - follow the money. It's ALWAYS about the
money.

The stuff has
worked great for me for over a year now. Green leaf Stevia is the
best as it retains all of the goodness that is found naturally in
the plant.

An
article from Mili: With its extracts having up to 300 times the
sweetness of sugar, stevia has garnered attention with the rise in
demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives. Stevia
also has shown promise in medical research for treating such
conditions as obesity[1] and high blood pressure.[2][3] Stevia has
a negligible effect on blood glucose, even enhancing glucose
tolerance;[4] therefore, it is attractive as a natural sweetener to
diabetics and others on carbohydrate-controlled diets.[5] However,
health and political controversies have limited stevia's
availability in many countries; for example, the United States
banned it in the early 1990s unless labeled as a supplement. Stevia
is widely used as a sweetener in Japan, and it is now available in
the US and Canada as a dietary supplement, although not as a food
additive.

Want
to loose weight, control your blood-sugar levels but just can't say
no to sugar?

Well, here you
go!

"Stevia is the
healthiest natural sugar substitute, and the most trusted natural
sweet plants on Earth. Stevia is a green leaves with natural sweet
taste. It's 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, calorie and
carbohydrate free. It has been used for thousands of years as a
food enhancer. It has now been grown commercially and widely used,
in instead of artificial sweeteners like aspartame, splenda and
xylitol in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Central America, United
States, Canada, Middle East, Europe, China and Thailand. It has
been used as a healthy alternative to sugar for people seeking
overall improved health including controlling blood sugar,
preventing hypertension, treating skin disorders, preventing tooth
decay and controlling Candida. Other studies show that it is a
natural antiviral agent and antibacterial as well. It is a great
natural sweetener choice for diabetics, and people on a basic diet
to control severe liver or kidney diseases such as Hepatitis C. Due
to its almost zero calorie nature, it is extremely useful to obese
persons that are attempting to lose body fat. Because it is a
natural sweet sugarless, it reduces sugar cravings by fooling the
body into a state of satiation. This will result in less sweet food
being craved, thus consumed, and in the result reduces caloric
intake. It will help with the suppression of the appetite, without
having to resort to products containing stimulants."

I made banana
bread with it one. It turned out excellent. No bitter aftertaste
& sweet as all get out. Consume it guilt free.

CC
thank you, for passing along this info.l

China, like you I
cannot tolerate medications, and artificial sweetners. I wasn't
crazy about Stevia either.

Oh
puptent! I cannot tolerate medications either!! I thought I was the
only one.

After I had my
brain injury, I had a doctor that put me on 7 different meds. They
all interacted adversely with each other. I was a wreck. I either
slept too much or not at all. I was sick to my stomach.. The doc
then put me on stomach meds. Every symptom, he gave me a new med.
Finally I quit all meds against medical advice. I have been "drug
free" for about a little more than year now.

I joke with my bf,
since we always have to do random drug testing for the military. He
always asks me, "did you pass?" (with a big grin)and I always say,
"I'm drug free, I'm all natural, baby!"

Now I only take a
tylenol for a headache if I feel like my head will explode.
Otherwise, if it's just achey, I suck it up and drive
on.

tylenol.

CC, I
only add sugar (and half & half) to my coffee. No flavored
creamers or non-dairy creamers. I hardly use sugar, and I don't
have much of a sweet-tooth, so I don't crave it. If I want
something sweet, I will usually eat fruit, or a very small piece of
a treat. Like if I am out with friends, and someone orders dessert,
I will have a bite of theirs, or share a very small
portion.

I usually only
have desserts maybe once every 2 weeks to a month. When I lived/was
stationed in the Midwest, they all insisted on having dessert after
supper every night, sometimes dessert after lunch and again after
supper. If we ate at home, I would usually slice up a piece of
fruit or just pass on it. I was usually full from supper that I did
not want anything else. I usually drink tea in the evenings, so
that usually is enough to keep my tummy happy until bedtime. I
don't add anything to my tea ever. I made the mistake when I was
stationed in the South, I forgot to say "unsweetened tea" when I
ordered in a restaurant. They would bring the sweet tea, and after
the first sip, I would be like, "holy shit!!" My eyes would get all
big. Everyone would laugh.

I don't drink
soda. It makes it hard sometimes when I am out, places don't always
have tea, only soda, so I get water. I drink water, tea, coffee,
and juice only once in a great while. I usually drink 8-12 cups of
water a day.

Diabetes runs in
my Mom's side of the family, but every time I have been tested, the
doctor says I am fine.

China,

Hope you're
well?

Your not liking
sweets much is a leg up for you in tha battle against sugar.
Personally, I love sweets. Almost like a drug to me they are. Just
avoid them a lot more than I used to.

Yes, 8 to 12
glasses of water per day is recommended but I don't usually have
that many myself. I'd be running to the bathroom every 2 minutes if
I were to drink that much! lol Good that you prefer water to soda.
We've always just called it 'pop' here in Canada! I don't often
indulge in that stuff either. Tea(s) are always nice. Mint, ginger,
chai, lots of tastey ones around these days.

Given that
diabetes runs in your Mom's side (same here) it's especially
important that you don't mess around with the sugary
foods.
