You shouldn't live off it but it's fine.

https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/the-truth-about-fats-bad-and-good

There is a common sense element to this. We ate stuff for many thousands of years and obesity was rare.

We changed our diet a few decades ago and now you can't walk down the street without seeing someone at 2x their ideal weight. And its getting worse. You see little kids who are blimps all the time.

So what did we change? It wasn't that people just started eating animal fats. That was the stuff we ate before.

If you didn't read the article Gamerfreak posted about the propaganda campaigns of the sugar industry, it's pretty good.



People also got really physically inactive in general post Industrial revolution/tv/computer. Iím sure diet is a factor but itís been way more of the acceptance and even seeking out a sedentary lifestyle than diet changes, IMO. Thatís my problem with most newer weight loss diet trends, they all seem to be designed to accept and really just placate a sedentary ( unhealthy) lifestyle . Carbs and sugar are just the new scapegoat.

PS. Have people really been eating pork rinds for thousands of years?

I'm remembering reading the Little House on the Prairie series as a child and that story really standing out. It was a big deal when they butchered a hog, and the kids fought over who got the tail. They put it on a stick like we toast a marshmallow, got it sizzling and dripping with hot fat, and ate it skin and all.

I figure it's a short hop from eating roasted skin to pork rinds, so I would guess they're an ancient snack.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Hmmmmm. what to plan for tomorrow. I'm thinking something with chicken...... Oh I know..... Mohammed's Mum's Jeera Chicken. I'll post up the secret recipe. That too is probably Keto compliant and bloody fantastic. OMG, my mouth is frothing up thinking about it.

Oh boy. I can't believe I just did that!
Cooking the Jeera Chicken since mid afternoon went fine. I had the obligatory glass of chef's wine. And when it was cooked, I took the equally obligatory photo ( may not meet the flamboyance standards of idiot lurkers from another forum )
It was a big pan, and the plan was half now and half tomorrow. So I served up and tucked in. Apart from the greasy mess on my ( cheap ) shirt, I'd eaten half a chicken half a bulb of garlic and an ounce of butter. nom nom nom.
.
And then I went back and ate the rest. Bloody delish. Thank's Mohamed's mum.

Now I need my nap.

did something today that was new for me anyway

I slow cooked a burger in the oven for 45 minutes at 250 degrees based on an internet tip. put a little EVOO in the oven pan

it was great - cooked all thru and thru and very moist and tender. could cut it easily with a spoon.

will now be my main way to cook burgers

I am on my way to the market to pick up fresh fish for a Cioppino I am making tonight for my girlfriend. It is one of my favorite dishes.

Clams, scallops, sheimp, lobster, mussels cooked in a homemade tomato sauce with white wine, butter, thyme, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper. Accompanied with garlic bread.

I wouldn't consider it to be meat loaf because it's not cooked into the shape of a loaf and a meat loaf usually adds other stuff such as bread crumbs and tomato glaze. I consider it to be a burger, not meat loaf.

Are you being serious? It was tomatoes, eggs, beans, bread, bacon, leeks and not rice. In what way are carbs unhealthy? I'm not doing keto. This is not the health and weight loss thread.


I was joking.

You gotta be healthy, though. Pick up carb-free hobbies, like smoking or vaping. Chew should also be carb-free. Many drugs are carb freee too, I believe.

I enjoy nicotine. Although I donít smoke cigarettes for health reasons, they donít gross me out at all.

I like vaping, occasional cigars, and sometimes snus (which is a little gross).

Iíve never gotten addicted to any of it. Recently I havenít been able to partake because I signed up for a Life Insurance Retirement Plan hybrid thing where they send someone out to your house and take blood/urin and test for nicotine, among other things Iím sure. A lot of people have been interested in my fluids recently.

I went to the hard rock buffet last night. I started off good with shrimp, oysters, and mussels. Then it turned bad to pizza and chinese.
Food was pretty decent. It was $35 a person but we got 2 free with tier match.

Subway foot long spicy italian with guac and 2 cookies

Google maps needs to up their game. Many places in Vegas say that are open till midnight, but are closed at 10pm. Or they would say they are 24 hour and they close at midnight.

Maybe I've ordered the wrong stuff. But it was just normal pub food. I'd toss a coin between their fish and chips at lol $30 and crown and anchors which might be free if you play. Meat pie was good but it was just a normal meat pie. $26.

The steak was clearly good, not great quality. But cost $45.

Sides, $11. More than some steakhouse.

Overall point being you could eat at some local pub for like 1/3 the price and it will be 75% as good to better, depending on your preference.

Or you could walk 30 feet to Old Homestead and pay maybe 20% more for some real fine dining and top notch steaks. I think their sides might be cheaper!

I just ate a Reuben.

The Reuben sandwich is an American hot sandwich composed of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing between slices of rye bread.

the funny thing is I'm not at all crazy about corned beef or Swiss cheese; I can't stand sauerkraut and I don't like Russian dressing. I'm not crazy about rye bread either.

but when you put it all together if done right the sandwich is a knockout - 4.5 stars.

go figure

Damn I think Subway hornswaggled/hoodwinked me into going there like 3x times a week. They run the promotion of a free 6 inch sub if you buy a $25 gift card, so I usually buy 2 of them to get a foot long sub everytime I run out of gift cards. Too lazy to go to an actual restaurant, and some of them are 24 hours. At this rate I might end up like Jared.

By Jared I mean losing the weight, not the going to jail for diddilin kids

The sub I usually get (foot long spicy italian, no cheese, veggies with avocado, red wine vinegarette) is 1210 calories. I dunno about the cookies but I'm assuming they are about 500 or so calories. EV play - diet coke tho it's 0 calories

tried something new. I drink one glass of iced tea in the afternoon.
I make black tea it in the morning and let it sit in the fridge and get cold.

to get health benefits I bought some ginger root which is very cheap, cut a little bit of it up and boiled it in the water, then poured it into the mug with the black tea bag with the boiled water.
then I added a slice of orange without the peel for taste
then before I actually drink it I add some cranberry juice which I like the taste in small amounts and it also has health benefits

so, every afternoon now, I have some tasty iced tea with some health benefits

black tea is very cheap. I estimate the whole glass with all the ingredients costs about 14 cents.

bought an appetizer at a Vietnamese restaurant - shrimp egg rolls

they were really good - but very heavy - deep fried - can't do that too often

the great thing was my partner got the chicken egg rolls which came with peanut sauce

I had never before tried peanut sauce with an asian dish and didn't know about it

it was great - went out and bought some at an asian store - will use with rice dishes

I love me some chicken satay with peanut sauce.


Peanut sauce is the devil's food.

lately I've been treating myself to ribeye steak once a week. the package they sell is enough for 2 meals
it's expensive compared to the meat I usually buy but not more than a Mickey Dees combo for each meal

the first couple of times the taste was delicious but the meat was a little tough

this time I marinated it overnight in soy sauce, cola, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder
before marinating it I beat it for a long time with a cooking hammer breaking down the muscle fiber

I broiled it and this time it came out very tender - perfect - wow - soooo good



ribeye is the 2nd most expensive steak at my grocery
new york strip is the most expensive

never tried new york strip but ribeye is more visually attractive
it costs way more then ribeye - close to double
Please don't feed the trolls

Hmmmmm. Ribeye is one I'd cook rare and expect it to be tender except for the odd strip of sinew. I love the marble texture and it's perfect for marinating.
If you like Ribeye but want/need to economise, see if you can get 'Flat-Iron' steak. It's a cheaper cut with similar properties.
