That's good, Reader. I've heard that occupying the hands into different activities help. A doctor told me that's the myth behind people gaining weight after quitting. It's not the reaction, it's the hands always wanting to be occupied, I guess eating is a full time deterrent.
So after this...I'll have to re-read the thread on weight loss? Ouch! A never ending battle with addictions, Is it not folks?
Yep--every time I think I have licked the last one, another one looms.

Pretty much down to coffee, these days and have no urge to give it up. Have stopped it in the afternoons, however.

But, it is pretty much all the same process. Admitting the problem, getting help, picking up when you fall down and so forth.

A few years ago, Berger hospital came into our workplace with a program called "The Balancing Act". All we did was count fat grams, 30 or less per day for males, 25 or less for females. The weight actually fell off with us hardly knowing it until we looked into the mirror one day and said WOW! I loaned the book to someone and never got it back. I did great until I broke my foot a couple of years ago and fell off the program. I seriously wish I could find that program again.
Interesting.

I think that one of the reasons that the low-fat rage in America has not resulted in population-wide weight loss has to do with a couple of things. One is not distinguishing between different kinds of fats (which is something that I think Adkins moved into later on). Fat tends to relate to flavor in food--so simply eliminating fat from a lot of processed foods tended to lead to replacing it with sugar (for flavor), and frequently with carbs for texture.

I would imagine that your program probably did draw some lines around unhealthy replacements in some ways.

Glitter can probably expound a bit better, but nutrition seems to be fairly complex. We have made a lot of attempts at simplification (the food groups, the pyramid, just count calories, just count carbs, just count fat grams, etc)--but with each simplification, I think we have run risks. Just counting calories can be a set up--example, blowing things up by having a jelly donut for breakfast. In theory one can make it up later, but it isn't too likely.

^^^ Let me repeat my story recounting my travels to Italy: The only fat guy I ever saw in Italy was the manager who came out of the kitchen of a McDonalds in Palermo, Sicily.

A true metaphor for what is wrong with America.

Great, Catman. You're on the wagon one day and we learn all our friends on here are fighting being overweight, nicotine addiction or an addiction to coffee. LOL

You sure opened a can of worms and I'm not giving up coffee or peppermint patties. Love you

Oh, Tim McGraw was on Leno last night. He has been sober 5 years. It was interesting. He said his shyness lead to it and he performed better when loaded. Now he keeps busy 24 X 7 to avoid the cravings.

Nutrition is complex thus taking five years to get a degree, now up to six if you go through Med Diet, OSU. My beginning advice to anyone is learn what a portion is first, worry about sources after you master that. I think I've shared this tidbit before, but worth sharing again. The hamburger in a happy meal, at McD's, used to be the "adult" burger that you purchased. Ruminate on that.

Agreed. What's considered a deli sandwich in Italy we would consider an appetizer.

That said, bad carbs do make people eat more and bad carbs have been pushed on us in the last 40 years. The size of the typical grocery store used to be the same size as an Aldi is today. Now Kroger is in buildings that used to be the same size as a Kmart. If you look at what's in the middle of the store, it's mostly an expanded selection of junk.

So, it's a little of both IMO. Size matters (lol)... but there has also been a proliferation of tasty, oversized crap.

I remember back in the 80s when Cub Foods came around, it was a massive grocery compared to it's competitors. The bulk food stations were new to us, plus it seemed like the more you buy the more you saved. Although, when Meijer came in, they put a big dent in Cub & the other old school grocers game.
Anyhow, I wish you a healthy eating style, which you seem to be putting very great interest in(as not too many men do) BTW, You are male right, Bob? lol.. Good Luck anyway..

LOL ... my health nut leanings have do to with the fact that my job can often bore me to tears. I was struggling with boredom and staying alert. I've found that since I started paying attention to these things, it hasn't been so much of a problem as it was for awhile.

What's interesting to me is when I think back to the Kroger store at Berwick my mother used to shop at and how small it was. It would be interesting to take each part of the store and compare it to what you see in a Kroger store today. It's amazing what people "have" to have today.

It's also amazing that you can't escape food. Every other store seems to sell food these days from gas stations to Kmart.

I was always amused by people who go see a movie and "have" to have something to eat or drink. It's like, you can't make it 90 minutes without stuffing your face? lol
