Bored with food

My ex was a fan of Atkins years ago.

I might have been thinner but it was miserable and boring.

I was always worried she'd smell the french fries or doughnuts on my breath when I got back from "running errands."
My ex did the same, lost a ton of weight then put two back on several times.

When I want to lose weight low-carb is my go to because it's easy for me. The first few days I crave pasta, potatoes, and Fritos, but after that I don't want them anymore. It doesn't take long for the weight to come off.

Good news is I dropped the weight. Bad news is my HDL is down and my LDL is up

See, and I had the exact opposite when I did Atkins - my good cholesterol was high and my bad cholesterol was low. That's about the time I realized that everything "they" say is bullshit. "They" also said I'd be constipated on Atkins, but I pooped like a champ and the only time my colon gets balky is when I'm eating a bunch of carby stuff.

My fat intake is probably higher than it should be, but I have a family history of hereditary high cholesterol. (Picked up a bag of fat back cracklins from a truck stop in NC yesterday that were out of this world. :lol:)

Contrary to popular, and gaslight, belief, cholesterol is not the driving force behind behind heart issues or arterial blockages. In fact, it is the liver that produces about 800 milligrams of cholesterol every single day and is absolutely necessary for every cell in the body to operate properly and for the brain, which has highest concentration of cholesterol. And, cholesterol is a poor predictor for heart disease.

We get another 200-300 milligrams of cholesterol from our diet, which again is needed for proper cell mitochondrial operations and to keep the brain operating at its full capacity. Any excess cholesterol is processed out of our bodies by being bound to fiber we eat, or recycled by the liver.

Statins stop the liver from making cholesterol, which causes immense problems and side effects. In this case, the treatment is worse than the cure; which is to simply change one's diet.

It is sugars, seed oils, refined carbohydrates, chemical preservatives, that attribute to heart disease and arterial blockages. Natural meat fats do not cause issues and are the preferred fuel for the body to use for energy.

Hope your drive back to Maryland was better than mine.

Somebody was nice enough to create a double accident on 95 and slam the brakes on traffic for miles before bowling green.

Last time something like that happened, I had enough notice to jump on 301 at Richmond and come up that way. Wasn't the best option, but better than sitting in the car.

Yeah, unfortunately, it happened ahead of me in the middle of an area that I couldn’t divert.

While I agree that we would all be better off if we consumed a healthier diet and got more exercise, thus eliminating the need for a lot of medications, I've taken statins for years with no side effects.

But why take it at all when it has been proven that stopping the body from producing cholesterol is not a good thing? And that it is diet that is the cause of heart and arterial problems? Why take something that stops the natural operation of a major organ in the human body? The brain's weight consists of over 60% cholesterol. Why inhibit the brain's health? Cholesterol is a building block of your cells. It helps your body create bile, hormones and vitamin D. It also helps with various bodily functions, including cell building and repair, bile production, and hormone production. It also aids in the production of sex hormones. Is a building block for human tissues. And assists in bile production in the liver.

Again, cholesterol is not the villain that the pharmaceuticals and the medical complex make it out to be. I would offer you to study more on the subject and put your health in your own hands. Patient heal thyself. Doctors will not tell you to change your diet. If they did, most would be out of business. And a business it is, the continual 'treatment', rather than the cure, and keeping patients ignorant, is what keeps them in business. So, put them out of business.

The plaque that builds up in arteries and in the heart, is put there as a temporary band-aide, as a scab, to help heal the scar, the damage, and inflammation, caused by high sugar levels from all types of sugars, refined carbs, seed oils, etc.. The continuation of this diet is what causes the buildup over time that causes heart issues. This is why, with a change of diet, it can all be reversed and all that plaque build up will be taken back up and leave those arteries clean and fully open once again. Back to good normal health.

For breakfast I'm having a smoked pork chop with eggs scrambled with riced cauliflower and mushrooms. It's delicious.

My goto for b'fast is usually some kind of egg dish or sammich, but it seems I've developed a sensitivity to eggs recently. In the experimental phase to confirm/deny. B'fast yesterday was oatmeal, and today a toasted bagel. And no coffee until this reflux subsides.

I used to have a cast iron stomach. :ohwell: Hate this getting old crap.

I don't know what I would do if my body betrayed me regarding eggs or coffee. :bawl:

I don't know you so I have to ask this question: Are you in the medical profession? I can certainly do my own research but would you mind pointing me to the studies that you have read?

Welp, that'll be kinda difficult. Ya see, the knowledge I possess comes from many many many years of reading. Pretty hard to narrow down any one specific study or article.

However, I'd be happy to answer any questions or do my best point to an appropriate source related to such question.

Did you know this ..... That prior to the 1900's, heart attacks, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, were a rarity. Then, around that time, in 1903, someone came up with a way to hydrolyze cotton seed oil, (cotton seed oil that was used prior solely for machine lubrication and lamp oil, became CRISCO, a modification of the phrase, crystallized cottonseed oil. Yup, it's true. Then by demonizing the use of lard, by the use heavy advertising, woman across America threw out any semblance of logic or common sense, stopped using lard, and started using CRISCO. And guess what happened? You guessed it, heart attacks, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, began it's skyward trajectory to make it today's number one cause of all mortality in the US. Of course, today, CRISCO is not made with cotton seed oil anymore, (which btw, they call a "vegetable" oil. Ya can't make this shait up), instead they now use, Soybean Oil, Fully Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Palm Oil, Mono And Diglycerides, TBHQ And Citric Acid. Which the body has no idea of what to do with because it is not bioavailable.

All so called "vegetable" oils, palm, canola, safflower, corn, cottonseed, palm-kernel, and soybean, are all detrimental to human health as the body cannot deal with it and therefore cause all kinds of body inflammations.

Can you tell the difference between a "vegetable" seed oil refinery and a crude oil refinery? Might as well just eat motor oil.
