    I never felt satisfied by what I had eaten, I always wanted more. We would go to my grand parents and raid the refrigerator for hotdogs and sausage. I started raising my own animals at ten years old and butchered and cooked them myself, to the dismay of my veggie munching dad.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    LOL...nice....


    many people are allergic to wheat and that can put on weight because of it too if they eat a lot of pasta largely because they don't know what else to eat

    QFT.

    It is, however, an object lesson in moderation; one they'll never forget. I hope others pursuing a similar lifestyle will take note.

    It was a joke, fettpett. Geez, this is like doing a button-on condom expo in Intercourse, PA.

    I don't have a problem with vegetarians. Your stricter LDS eat a 95% vegetarian diet. I eat a lot of veggies myself. That said, you do have to watch what you're eating on that diet. Subbing in potatoes, beans, and bread to make up for meat will make a lot of people fat after a while. Too much fruit ruins your teeth. Relentless washing of veggies removes trace compounds that are necessary for health. It's tricky.

    On the other hand, you can eat nothing but fat and meat and be perfectly okay - no deficiencies at all. That pretty much makes the case for what we are "designed" to eat as far as I'm concerned. ;)

    Trying to keep the pasta to a minimum while on a veggie diet is tricky. Also, too much soy can screw with your hormone levels.

    I found that my overall digestive system functioned much better when I went semi-vegetarian (I permitted myself one meat day a week, but frequently didn't use it). Overall I was healthier because I was also making better choices...whole grains, fresh vegetables and fruits, etc. I was also taking care to get protein from yogurt, kefir, edamame, etc.

    Bingo.

    Anyone who is interested should check out the Anibolic diet.
