Hmmm, interesting topic.

I always thought that carbohydrates were the killers for diabetics and for people who can't tolerate them and gain weight on them (me) and that a high protein diet, provided it's lean meat, fish, chicken, etc, is MUCH better for you. At least I know I feel better on that...while bread, pasta, starches, just make me more hungry and have less energy.

People do have varying responses to food inputs. I know that too many carbs can be bad for me, but that too many fats is even worse. Being overweight puts lots of stress on various bodily systems that makes diabetes worse. I do know that lots of veggies is good for me.

I think most people don't do enough research to figure out what their own diets should be. By research I don't mean just looking up nutrition facts, but actually testing out foods. Try avoiding or adding just one food for a few weeks and see what effect it has. Anything less than 2 weeks isn't likely to tell you much other than maybe you're allergic  :D

I am upset to learn that my favorite fish may have high mercury content even though farmed. I do know that is what keeps my joints younger than most people my age....and I love it..lots of Omega-3.

I guess I'll have to stick with sardines, shrimp, and scallops.

Try flaxseed oil. One tablespoon a day provides you with lots of Omega-3 and Omega-6 goodess!

You know, bumper stickers that say 'Visualize World Peace'? It's making fun of that with 'Visualize Whirled Peas'.

FARMED is worse for you.  go for any deep sea fish..  farmed means that the fish are kept in close shore nets, where they are raised.  Street run off and such accumulates at the shore and cost line where the fish farms are.  Fish farms may sound good, but only if they were in a building or something, where water could be monitored!     

Deep in the ocean, the water is cleaner and has less of a build up. 

Flax seeds are great, I add them to oatmeal, or yogurt! 

try a organic cod liver oil, salmon oil is good too, and some nuts like almonds have omega's. 

ever try MSM or a chondroiten/ glucosamine mix?  you have to do both, because they work together, alone, they dont do poop for joints. 
http://ww2.arthritis.org/conditions/alttherapies/glucosamine.asp

concerned about heavy metals in your body?  try raw or dried wheat grass, check out the usages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheatgrass

info about flax seeds, and fatty acids:
# Flaxseed oil (flaxseed oil has the highest linolenic content of any food), flaxseeds, flaxseed meal, hempseed oil, hempseeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, avocados, some dark leafy green vegetables (kale, spinach, purslane, mustard greens, collards, etc.), canola oil (cold-pressed and unrefined), soybean oil, wheat germ oil, salmon, mackerel, sardines, anchovies, albacore tuna, and others.
# One tablespoon per day of flaxseed oil should provide the recommended daily adult portion of linolenic acid, although "time-released" effects of consuming nuts and other linolenic-rich foods is being studied, and considered more beneficial than a once-daily oil intake.


Oh, pumpkin seeds, (raw if you can stand it! shells off, not fried or cooked, cooking kills!) are high in good oils too!

speaking of Raw foods, I took my dog off kibble completely.  SHe is now eating raw beef, chicken, rabbit, and veggies, and raw bones. 

she would look at the kibble and i would have to flavor it for her to eat it.. but now she is excited about her food!!!  and so far, no more explosion of poops, she has a broken pancreas from 3 lbs of bacon..  she has not been able to digest kibble no matter what brand...  she pooped on my kitchen walls last week! Eww!  I am excited about her raw diet!

I've had some friends that had good results from this.

The dog food you get at grocery stores is junk. Look at the labels and if it has corn in it, you should skip it. When I switched Otis from kibbles and bits to http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com/ his doody improved a lot.

All you single guys should just do what I did, get a smart little hottie and convert her to a Libertarian. I have three daughters that I'm raising to be super Libertarians so hopefully, there will be some Libertarian hotties for your sons in 20 years.

A lot of libertarian men have trouble getting the first part done, and part of the reason is that they have way too much practice with the second.
