I try to stay away from carbs these days, but because they are so inexpensive I end up having them too often as sides for dinner, sending my blood sugar rocketing. Also ice cream... ice cream is my bane.

How curious.

When I was a kid I loved stuff that is healthful: fruit, spinach, veggies and gravitated toward balanced meals of veggies carbs with meat. And I couldnt have cared less about candy. In fact I hated most kinds of candy as a child. Still do.

if you don't like sweet, what do you think of savory?

Savory? Not aure how you are using the word. Even as a kid I liked many candies like m and ms hershy bars. In fact I like sinful stuff like coconut garnish and cinnabons. But what I hate is stuff like mars bars that you cant chew- its like eating glue. And even with candy I like I get easily satiated. A couple mouthfuls and I am done, cant eat any more while other folks just keep eating it all night. But (a) also like fruit- as a source of sweetness, and (b) my lack of addiction to sugar seems to be balanced by an over active need for starch. Have put a number of Shoney all you can eat places out of business because I eat rice and potatoes and pasta by the wheelbarrowful. Lol!

savory is like the flavor of umami [a kind of undertone saltiness similar to MSG] that you find in cooked proteins and grains. I am wondering, if you eat so many starches, how do you stay slender? :scratch:


If by savory you mean like Chinese dishes, or Italian, then yes that's my thing. My own bachelor style of cooking for myself is very quasi Chinese and or quasi Italian in style. Like to mix my vegetables and my proteins with my carbs in one dish.

I do try to limit my starches lately. Try not to give myself food comas like I used to. And in my job I am on my feet all of the time. So that seems to help.

I do that also, I like my meals to be consolidated, not having to reach over to eat the peas then reach back to grab the meat or drink, so all is in the same pot. :chef:

I actually do like the sugar free stuff, but it can be hard to find, usually more expensive, and limited in flavors.

my local wally world carries bluebunny icecream which is an excellent diet [no sugar] icecream IMHO, you might wanna try it, it comes in several diet flavors besides the usual diet ones. :chef: also I discovered that veggies fried Asian style in a wok can taste surprisingly good and replace the bulk of your carbs. :idea:

A couple of anecdotal observations.

In this thread viewtopic.php?t=368447 many that replied said they mainly or only eat because they have to.

Also of all the autistics I've been around, the minority were not overweight. Although granted most were 6 to 18 years old.

if memory serves me right, there is vanilla, chocolate, I think something called "moose tracks" which is some kinda chocolatey marshmallowey stuff, banana split, a flavor similar to butter brickle but I can't recall the exact name. several, so you can eat one per week of the diet stuff and not get too tired of it right away.

Most people aren't physically active these days. In pioneer days people had to do hard labor all day long under the sun just to survive, but now they're stuck behind a computer all day long while stuck in a cubicle. Kids are stuck at a desk in school. And then they go home and spend more time in front of a computer or the TV, or doing homework or paperwork.

And many parents these days are terrified of even letting their kids play in the back yard, thanks to all the "stranger danger", and everyone you see could be a pedophile. :roll:

However, when I was a kid, my mom was constantly trying to get me to lose weight by playing outside more. I'd spend many an cold, dreary afternoon alone outside, freezing my buns off and being bored to tears. Exercise was nothing but torture and punishment for being fat. I hated it. The only physical activity I was good at and actually enjoyed was swimming but I only got to do that in the summer and still didn't lose weight even though I'd be outdoors playing a lot more often at the campgrounds my parents took me to. I think the only way I could lose weight now is to practically starve myself and work out for hours at a time. Not gonna happen. I've spent too much of my life in discomfort, and we're all going to die soon anyway so it may as well be while I'm relaxed and comfortable. Or as much I reasonably hope to be in this putrid society of ours.

Me too (except for smell)! Perhaps we're super tasters. But I've never been overweight. I was 90 some pounds when I graduated high school and weigh about 110 pounds 22 years later. I was 115 pounds for years and years until I had an appendectomy and resulting bowel obstruction surgery 11 months ago.

welcome to our club, Heat :alien: let me guess- you find it cold when others around you are warm or hot?
No. I don't think so.
