"Who eats 5 hearty meals a day? That may be your problem right there. Fast by trying only 3 meals a day for a while couldn't hurt."
The act of 'grazing,' to keep your metabolism continuously buzzing, which seems to be the prevailing wisdom in the always contradictory fitness and nutrition world (they have to change everything and anything up once every few years or they'll stop making money from a lack of new things to tell you) - has of late been challenged by those thinking two larger meals may be more 'natural' as your body, or more specifically your stomach and intestinal tracts, are not designed to digest food perpetually.
Three reasonable meals a day is most likely the right way to go. You can even throw in a desert once in a while.
I knew about gelatin being made from boiling animal connective tissue. Marshmallows all use gelatin unless specifically indicated as vegetarian (use fruit pectin or some other non animal substance). Also check your vitamins & medications. Many capsules are made of gelatin. But I always find vegetarian capsules. Or take pills not capsules. Didn't know about beers & isinglass being fish bladder. Thanks for that info. Looked it up & found a list of brands that tells you whether they use isinglass: http://www.barnivore.com/beer Usually make my own salad dressing. Red wine vinegar & olive oil's a simple one. Also fresh squeezed lemon juice & olive oil. Evey once in a while I buy bottled salad dressing like Annie's Naturals (organic). But I always check the ingredients for things like cheese and gelatin.
Going to look more into isinglass. Hope it's not in any of the beers I really like!!
" I expect it to be grueling but enlightening and I'm looking forward to the journey."
So, you are looking forward to being hungry while the rest of us look forward to getting full.
I want you to know that I will be thinking of you next time I'm in front of FOOD.
"Personally, detoxification and healing. Idiosyncratic enlightening, honing will power."
Then you should also try to stay away from this board because it can get toxic as you know. LOL
It does get easier after 3 days...yes, it does. Carbs are addicting.
Not sure if serious
He is talking about an I Love Lucy episode where Lucy did a commercial for a product called vitavegaminamin or something like that, anyway I believe it contained alcohol and Lucy got drunk and was slurring her words. It is a classic episode especially if you are an I love Lucy fan. I am not.
" What is the great sin if aproduct has minute amounts of some animal product in it"
there is a minute amount of rennet in cheese,sure. But rennet Is stomach lining from cows..how do you think that stomach lining is retrieved? Bullet to the head then the carcass is eviscerated. Maybe not even in that order. The path to acquire these "minute amounts of animal product" moreorless outweighs ingesting it. Which is why I for one won't partake in the consumption of products even with small amounts of meat.
I would have thought that a guy who worries about Karma from killing a bug would treat humans better???
