    When you eat out and if the food tastes really good, don't eat it. The chances are that it has a lot of really good butter

    Did she say 16lbs of butter?

    organic butter is fine, still shouldn't overdo it though.

    You know, @Maritsa, there's a famous German TV cook called Horst Lichter. He loves butter. When he cooks mashed potatoes it consists of 50% potatoes and 50% butter. Best recipe for mashed potatoes ever. Tastes good.

    Shortbread cookies do not a a restaurant meal maketh! Eat good hearty meals and you won't want to gorge on sugary nutritionless crap afterwards.

    Four decades of medical wisdom that cutting down on saturated fats reduces our risk of heart disease may be wrong, a top cardiologist has said. Fatty foods that have not been processed – such as butter, cheese, eggs and yoghurt – can even be good for the heart, and repeated advice that we should cut our fat intake may have actually increased risks of heart disease, said Dr Aseem Malhotra.

    Writing in the British Medical Journal, he argues that saturated fats have been “demonised” since a major study in 1970 linked increased levels of heart disease with high cholesterol and high saturated fat intake.

    The NHS currently recommends that the average man should eat no more than 30g of saturated fat a day and women no more than 20g. However, Dr Malhotra, a specialist at Croydon University Hospital, said that cutting sugar out of our diets should be a far greater priority.

    He told The Independent: “From the analysis of the independent evidence that I have done, saturated fat from non-processed food is not harmful and probably beneficial. Butter, cheese, yoghurt and eggs are generally healthy and not detrimental. The food industry has profited from the low-fat mantra for decades because foods that are marketed as low-fat are often loaded with sugar. We are now learning that added sugar in food is driving the obesity epidemic and the rise in diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”

    A recent study indicated that 75 per cent of acute heart attack patients have normal cholesterol concentrations, suggesting that cholesterol levels are not the real problem, Dr Malhotra argued.

    He also pointed to figures suggesting the amount of fat consumed in the US has gone down in the past 30 years while obesity rates have risen.

    Bad diet advice has also led to millions of patients being prescribed statins to control their blood pressure, he argues, when simply adopting a Mediterranean diet might be more effective.

    However, Professor Peter Weissberg, medical director at the British Heart Foundation, said: “Studies on the link between diet and disease frequently produce conflicting results because, unlike drug trials, it’s very difficult to undertake a properly controlled, randomised study. However, people with highest cholesterol levels are at highest risk of a heart attack.

    Thanks. I agree with the article. I think one is advised to "cut DOWN" on saturated fats not cut out. But with Transitional Fats they should be eliminated entirely.

    Everyone's tastes varies, though. I think fresh healthy food tastes really good.

    Healthy food does not taste like cardboard. Eating shredded red cabbage raw with a drop of olive oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice pinch of salt and black pepper is full of flavour.

    Some fats are healthy too, naturally occurring fats like those found in nuts and avocado etc are perfectly healthy in a balanced diet.

    The omega's are fats too and we are encouraged to eat those for the health benefits.

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    I hope you're not replacing butter with margarine, Maritsa. That shit is about a million times worse for your long term health.

    i can't even remember the last time i've used butter. i use olive oil because i love the flavor (and i've been experimenting with sunflower oil, avocado oil and hemp oil), but the food i eat never really needs butter. when i do need it for a recipe i use this stuff:



    http://www.earthbalancenatural.com/products/

    i also prefer almond milk to regular milk, but when i do get milk i go organic. i think it's more important to be healthy than to count calories, so i never bother with sugar substitutes or "diet" anything. i like using sugar in the raw or vanilla > sugar or sugar substitutes, molasses when i cook sweet potatoes, evaporated milk instead of cream, whole wheat/grain > white anything. brown rice, couscous, quinoa, wild rice instead of white rice, etc. also i don't buy lettuce anymore, i prefer kale, spinach, arugula, or dandelion greens.



    good, REAL, healthy food is not going to taste like cardboard. that's stupid. only food with unhealthy, low/zero calorie substitutions that mimic high-fat meals taste like cardboard. think lean cuisine. screw that shite.

    i fucking love vegetables. you just gotta know how to cook/prepare them. carrots, brussels sprouts, broccoli, asparagus, green beans, mushrooms, zucchini, squash, eggplant, whatever... they're all delicious when they're fresh and done right.

    apple cider vinegar should be in every household. it has like 20 different uses. seriously. you can wash your hair with it (use as a conditioner after washing with a 3:1 ratio of water/baking soda for awesome results and to completely replace natural oil-stripping commercial shampoos and conditioners), use it for ear infections, weight loss, detox, face toner, mouthwash, acne, allergies, sinuses, the flu, etc. i could go on but you get the point. btw, the smell goes away when your hair dries in case you were wondering.


    i know it's bizarre that i care this much about health when i talk about excessive drug use and smoking, etc. but prioritizing this kind of health is important. and also, i'm completely clean now, and will be for at least the next 7 months and hopefully the rest of my life (work-rehab i'm going to in the next couple wks).

    I advice on reducing the ammount of oxygen consumed on a regular day! Research indicates that Oxygen is actually contributing to the wear and tear in the human body! Self-suffixiation might be going too far, but a healthy diet of choke-sexing might prolongue your live by 0.0000043% on avarage!!!

    Blablah!

    Forget about all the stuff fancy magazines tell you to eat this and not to eat that - key to healthy diet is a balanced died. Simply means you eat what you want. Fruits and vegetables are a priority.

    I'm rail thin but I have a fatty liver and no I don't drink.

    I know. I said the same thing to my doctor "WTH HOW?" He said he's only seen it one other time, that is his wife too is thin and doesn't drink but has a fatty liver. He thinks it may have been caused by any number of things, one of which is a diet that's too specifically vegetarian, so he told me to incorporate lean meats in my diet.

    Oh. That stinks.

    At least it sounds fixable.

    Never heard of that before, I'm intrigued. I'll google more about that in a bit.

    Fatty liver. You aren't eating enough hamburger to give your liver exercise. Your liver has become lazy.

    In theory, going out to eat shouldn't be something you're doing all the time anyway. If you yourself cannot have butter (or that much butter), then adjust to that by all means. It doesn't mean we all are going to suffer from consuming really fatty food once in a while, especially if we eat well otherwise. Moderation is the big thing.

    These last are helpful advices - thanks for sharing. Though I'm still at the point that food should be not only healthy, but tasty as well.
