"..Every time we deny our hunger drive due to guilt or deliberately starve ourselves to lose weight, we get further and further away from where we REALLY want to be...." Freelee the Banana Girl

"When it comes to eating, when will we understand and accept that our brain is our friend and trying to help us thrive? Our brains are infinitely wise but we often allow our egos to dictate our actions. Every time we deny our hunger drive due to guilt or deliberately starve ourselves to lose weight, we get further and further away from where we REALLY want to be. The brain will NEVER give up trying to keep us nourished and until we work with the brain NOT against it, we will struggle with weight loss and disordered eating. When you feel hungry it means your brain and cells are running low on glucose and need a top up, it's nothing to be ashamed of! Most people will fight the brain with these starvation diets for the rest of their lives, don't be one of those people - USE YOUR BRAIN and honour your hunger by carbing up with high carb [going vegan and eating whatever you want and] plant foods!"


Diet rant from Anne Lamott

f watching calories just eat whatever (as long as it's healthy - my idea of healthy include doughnuts because doughtnuts CAN be healthy) whenever you want  F food rules. and stop food and body policing.

"Jeb is on the Paleo diet, has lost 30 pounds, and "is always hungry." We know, statistically, he will gain back 35. Therefore, in the interests of non-partisan sharing:

This is the Anne Patricia Lamott Anti-Diet that I posted On New Years Day last year. This year, I post it with an added urgency, as the new Viking Diet is upon us, the latest and hottest It diet, and since you may feel vulnerable and somewhat battered after the last few days/weeks/years of festive family get-togethers, or estrangement, you will be susceptible to its promises. And yes, young Canute, if you are enjoying the noble Viking lifestyle, raiding your neighbor's grain stores and salted venison lockers, this may in fact be the perfect new diet for you. Are you giddy with relief that Whole Foods carries so many foraged vegetables, and moose meat? Then step right up. Help bail out the ever-struggling diet industry, while you're at it. But otherwise?

What is Kala Namak salt (that salt that taste like eggs)

"Kala Namak or Himalayan Black Salt (Urdu کالا نمک; Bengali Biit lobon (বিট লবণ); Newari Be Chi; Nepali Birae Nun (बिरे नुन) ; Hindi काला नमक   Marathi काळं मीठ ;kālā namak; Gujarati સંચળ Sanchal; Tamil இந்துப்பு; Malayalam ഇന്തുപ്പ്) also known as sulemani namak, black salt, or kala loon, is a type of rock salt, salty and pungent-smelling condiment used in South Asia. The condiment is composed largely of sodium chloride with several other components lending the salt its colour and smell. The smell is mainly due to its sulphur content. Due to the presence of Greigite (Fe3S4, Iron(II,III) sulfide) in the mineral, it forms brownish pink to dark violet translucent crystals when whole, and, when ground into a powder, it is light purple to pink in color"

Usually people use this when trying to make a dish have an "eggy" flavor

What is Mirin?

"Mirin (味醂 or みりん?) is an essential condiment used in Japanese cuisine. It is a type of rice wine similar to sake, but with a lower alcohol content and higher sugar content. The sugar content is a complex carbohydrate formed naturally via the fermentation process; it is not refined sugar. The alcohol content is further lowered when the liquid is heated.

There are three general types of mirin. The first is hon mirin (literally: true mirin), which contains approximately 14% alcohol and is produced by a forty- to sixty-day mashing (saccharification) process. The second is shio mirin, which contains alcohol as well as 1.5% salt to avoid alcohol tax.The third is shin mirin (literally: new mirin), or mirin-fu chomiryo (literally: mirin-like seasoning), which contains less than 1% alcohol yet retains the same flavor.
