Fat In Foods: 7 Eats With More Fat Than A Stick Of Butter

Fat In Foods: 7 Eats With More Fat Than A Stick Of Butter

“The dietary guidelines are wrong. Fat is healthy. All mammals on Earth survive on fat, or convert plant matter to amino acids (gorillas). Your diet should have 2-3 times the fat that guidelines say.
I eat protein and fat, lose weight when I want, and cholesterol is right at the bottom of the scale. If I followed guidelines, I would be obese, sick, and hungry all the time-I have been there.”

“Any photographer would know that it's a 2D representation of light hitting a flat surface. A cloth wrapped around a body would be 1.6 times wider than the face on the shroud. It's a clever trick done with light sensitive cloth, in three exposures. The shroud may just be the worlds first known photograph. Clever, but hardly what people think it is.”

“I always thought that and it seems so obvious to me. If you place the shroud on a 3-d object, then the image is not that of a 2-d photograph!”

“The rise in type 2 diabetes and obesity since 1980 is directly tied to low fat diets and higher sugar consumption.
Previous thinking on calories and weight has been proven to be incorrect. Sugar increases your insulin level, and this tells your body to store fat.
People are doing it to themselves, sure, but now we have populations with blood streams clogged with hormones telling the body to prepare for a famine and store fat.
If sugar were a drug, it would be banned. True story.”

AlexDamian on Feb 3, 2012 at 09:35:19

“Exactly. And the charts correlating the introduction of HFCS and the huge spike in obesity in the US is also very, very telling. Most people are unaware of HFCS in most foods that it's in, also. It is in EVERYTHING. My local regular grocery doesn't even sell a horseradish sauce for sandwiches free of the stuff. If it were a drug it'd be banned, as it is people are getting rather wealthy from selling highly processed toxic foods to the public.”

“What's happening is they are finding many kids 4-5 years younger that are obese and at risk for diabetes. Why? Mom's insulin level during pregnancy, which is a function of moms sugar intake. The kids are born insulin resistant. There's you sugar problem.”

“To say "God" is to say "Reality".

And there is only One Reality that encompasse­s and permeates all other realities.

We know that Reality through its manifestations, which is the entire theomorphic universe, and It's many an Attribute, like Love.

"God is the Light of Heaven and Earth!

His light may be compared to a niche in which there is a lamp;

the lamp is in a glass;

the glass is just as if it were a glittering star

kindled from a blessed olive tree,

[which is] neither Eastern nor Western,

whose oil will almost glow though fire has never touched it.

Light upon light,

God guides anyone He wishes to His light.

God composes parables for mankind;

God is Aware of everything­!"”

11/11/11 -- Not Just A Funky Date

Commented Nov 12, 2011 at 11:48:09 in Politics

“Several times a year, news organizations, blogs, and individuals fall all over themselves kissing the feet of military folks, just like the Romans did to thank them for conquest and spoils. Almost everyone feels compelled to thank them for "freedom." this never made any sense to me. Freedom comes from individuals forcing governments to behave. It has nothing to do with wars. Wars are about political force turned violent.
All this propaganda and political posturing has created a two tier citizenship. Vets get medical care and pensions that others don't. Vets get preferred hiring, parades, propaganda, monuments, and more special treatment than anyone else. I'm sick of it.
What about doctors, teachers, police, firefighters, rescue workers, inventors, innovators, and people that make lives better for everyone? Just because they didn't kill under state orders for some political insanity, are they second class citizens?”

68Namvet on Nov 12, 2011 at 12:59:28

“You really don't understand mankind, do you? Back to the days of cave dwellers, man has sought to conquer other men through violence. Be it for purpose of expanding the tribe through taking and using the women, stealing the tools, food and other items of those conquered or for control of the lands - war has been the mainstay of man's existence. From early recorded history with the taking of slaves, to religious conquests of the crusades to the extermination of the Jews in the holocaust, war has been with us. Not all governments nor men act civilly.

You state what about "police" who "make lives better for everyone". Yet, are not policemen just soldiers we hire to protect us from criminals so we may live our lives free from harm?

Yes, "Wars are about political force turned violent". But, it is the nature of man to protect his property, his family, his neighborhood, his community, his country and even his planet from forces that seek to destroy his way of life. The sad truth is that mankind has yet to learn to live in peace.

At some point, we will stop glorifying war. At some point, we will hold our leaders accountabl­e for fighting unneeded wars of choice. But, I'm not holding my breath.”
