Food Fads-Annoying

Sorry to all the folks afraid to eat bread, but this new gluten free rage is a bit crazy. I mean, honestly, does more than half the population have Celiac disease? Give me a friggen' break. It's getting so ridiculous. It's like when people say, "I lost a ton of weight when I stopped eating meat." It has nothing to do with the meat, it has to do with the fact that you were eating a steak with mashed potatoes, and heavy stuff, then all of a sudden you switched to salad and you blame meat?

In the 90s the big fad was to shovel down all the carbs you could because they were low fat and everyone was "losing weight". I mean honestly.

The way to lose weight is to simply, eat less and work out more. Have a diet mostly of plant based foods etc. The Mediterranean diet is one of the most healthy on the planet and guess what? They eat carbs-bread-gluten.

I gave up gluten for a month-felt NO DIFFERENT.
I gave up sugar for two months-felt NO DIFFERENT.
I have given up meat and dairy-FELT NO DIFFERENT.
I have done those cleanses, not the crazy ass only drink maple syrup and lemons etc, but the real ones, cut all all the "bad" stuff for a month and guess what I FELT NO DIFFERENT.

You know why? Because I eat healthy all of the time and balanced. People who never eat veggies, but pig out on bread will lose weight when they cut bread out and feel better not because of the bread because of the fact they are now eating veggies.

UGH. I mean, please if you think you really have a problem, go see a doctor, you might but otherwise, please shut up.

Some of the diets in the early 2000s were all about only eat meat and some greens, no fruit and no carrots, no corn, etc.. I mean, how healthy can a diet be that is all protein and no fruit?

So next time your friends are all over social media talking about how evil gluten is. take a deep breath and use your brain for a moment, because the Italians are living a long as time and they aren't afraid of gluten. This fad will pass too, I promise.

What the F is Wrong w/ People?

I am for equal rights for everyone-that is the first thing I need to say before my rant.
Okay, seriously, what is wrong with people? I don't understand why the Supreme Court has to deal with this crap when the world is having actual problems.
Today on FB a ton of people have been posting complete crap and some good things too.

I cut and pasted this from someone-I honestly don't know it was on a friend of a friend's page and she liked it. So sorry for not giving credit to a well written statement.

Seriously, I don't understand people sometimes. I am so sick of the "crazy" Christians trying to tell everyone else how to live. They need to read the bible they are thumping again, because as far as I can see they haven't a clue what Jesus was talking about.

I could go on and on and on, but I won' is the post.

Against gay marriage? Then don't marry someone of the same sex. If you're truly worried about the sanctity of marriage based on Christian values, remember Solomon and his many wives (so many that he could go years without sleeping with the same one twice), or the verse that tells you if your brother dies, you're to marry his wife (even if you're already married) and attempt to get her pregnant immediately. Remember Jacob, who married one sister but ended up sleeping with and keeping all of Laban's daughters on his wedding night. Lest we forget my favorite Christian edict regarding marriage, IF you rape a virgin, you must pay her father 50 shekels of silver and marry her and you may NEVER divorce her. The fact that rape is condoned boggles my mind. You sure don't see THAT verse on any Prop 8 or DOMA supporter's sign. If you want to call it "traditional family values" then go back to the original "traditional family" where men were allowed to sell their daughters or beat and/or kill their wife (or wives) and children and where divorce was a sin. You don't get to pick and choose your Bible verses to defend your point(s) and ignore any that don't jive with your version of a traditional marriage. I'm pretty sure Kim Kardashian's marriage (and I use the term loosely) wouldn't have qualified as traditional either but you don't see anyone holding up misspelled signs saying "God Hates Attention Whores" or "Popularity Addicted Airheads Burn in Hell" while attempting to ban her wedding. Point is, if two women or two men getting married has ANY impact on your marriage at all, then you have better things to worry about.
