Ooh! Scary! Scary! Don't we look mean? You can't see me! But I can see you!
When you say "stop"...

Is that with a heavy "S" or a soft "S"?

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Like strength said as schtrength? which I've noticed more and more in the US. Very upsetting.

WTH are you guys talking about. Language does not HAVE to have a spoken element to it. Don't 'hear' anything into it, basically.

What a journey.

Cooked some Steelhead Trout last night, with some basmati rice, and a nice bunch of kale sautéed with two leeks. The leftover kale was today topping for a turkey sandwich ... quite tasty!

Okay, I've been using this for about a month. It's a simple pleasure, really. I like this MORE than real butter.

Okay, I was going to search for info on it, but found these funny video/commercials. You've probably seen them; but I have not. I don't get a lot of commercials on OTA.

Funny, I just read this: http://www.apa.org/releases/sweeteners0208.html

Washington—Want to lose weight? It might help to pour that diet soda down the drain. Researchers have laboratory evidence that the widespread use of no-calorie sweeteners may actually make it harder for people to control their intake and body weight. The findings appear in the February issue of Behavioral Neuroscience, which is published by the American Psychological Association (APA).

Psychologists at Purdue University's Ingestive Behavior Research Center reported that relative to rats that ate yogurt sweetened with glucose (a simple sugar with 15 calories/teaspoon, the same as table sugar), rats given yogurt sweetened with zero-calorie saccharin later consumed more calories, gained more weight, put on more body fat, and didn't make up for it by cutting back later, all at levels of statistical significance.

Tliet: great taste (no pun) in universities (last night notwithstanding)!


I agree with the intake aspect. Stop eating (at all or junk) and you'll lose weight.

What a journey.

That's easier said than done (I've found). Especially when you're travelling it's easy to overeat. Just last night we had a wonderful night out in a garden place with literally tons of food. And we all had to try at least some of it. What I never knew is that they deep fry so many food in India (at least, in the south). McDonald's is nothing compared to the greasy stuff you get served here, some people are actually quite fat here at older age.

edit; what happened last night in Indiana?

I ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE. Many times I'll go out with my family and NOT ORDER or EAT A SINGLE THING. You CAN do that. (well, I can and I'm two arms, two legs, and an in-between just like you)

What a journey.

Yes, Bill, I agree, of course I would be able to do it if I really wanted it. But it will probably take some life changing event for me just to sit somewhere and not order or eat a single thing. The food is so wonderful here, some may disagree with me (and my trips to the toilet have been increasing by the day so my bowels may also disagree) but I just have to try at least some of the dishes on the table. Besides, I would offend my hosts here by not eating a single thing.

I'm not saying you shouldn't eat. I am trying to say if you want to that YOU CAN eat less, and thus lose weight, too. Kind of a cheerleader for taste-bud celibacy, if you need me to be.

What a journey.

We use that as daily spread ... along with judicious amounts of butter in actual cooking.


Just back from TX -- hard NOT to eat too much Blue Bell ice cream, Tex-Mex, and BBQ, or for that matter my mother's cooking. Even at 73 she's doing a great job.

BBQ, done right, is fantastic. Just below BACON on the crave-o-meter.
