    Something else along the lines of new label requirements from the FDA. This time on meat: http://khn.org/news/a-tender-steak-c...tle-dangerous/
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Default #the50%diet

    When it comes to Serving Sizes, I 'invented' (and try to follow) what I call The 50% Diet.

    There is only one 'rule': Eat half.

    I think you might be 'surprised' at how well it works losing weight — *and* keeping it off.

    It does have obvious pitfalls — one 'cannot', for example, eat half a carton of Twinkies® and expect not to pay for it — but it works for me (and has for a long time).

    YMMV

    Not to make *too* light of the topic (lol), I think John Oliver's recent monologue on Scientific Studies may have some application here.



    If not, it's still pretty funny (and bleeped for TV, etc.)

    That article on meat is a must-read.

    Ex, that 50% rule sounds good. You could apply it to one Twinkie instead of the carton and just have half a Twinkie, of course.

    All of those reports about "studies"--you have to laugh because for every study showing one thing you can easily find a study showing the opposite. So then you have the problem of whose study to trust.

    I use it in making my coleslaw, which I eat daily.
    That's not one I know about. I wonder if it's one of the natural sweeteners. Some of them are listed here.

    Pop quiz:

    How many teaspoons of sugar are in 10 grams of sugar:

    Answer: 2 1/2 teaspoons.

    The problem with the new, and old, labels are they put sugar in grams, not in teaspoons, so the consumer has little idea how much sugar they're actually consuming!

    Example, Cocoa cola has @39 grams of sugar in the can. That would be over NINE teaspoons of sugar, but the consumer has no idea it's that much sugar since it's listed in grams, not teaspoons.

    I too like the `1/2 half rule. My problem is that I like to eat so much I would just go back in a short time and eat the rest. Wish I could stick to a one half rule when it comes to food.

    Yea I probably couldn't stick with the 50% rule either. Especially when it comes to baked goods, bbq, fruit, veggies, cheese, chocolate, .... uh yea I should stop there, always good to stop on chocolate
