cooking the most delicious pork chops...
I have just finished a Dinner (Lunch) of the BEST pork chops I have ever tasted and enjoyed, to the last delicious bite, that I have ever had in 71 years. :) Two 5.5 oz chops, I prepared from a combination of 2 web sites: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-t... and http://www.bonappetit.com/test... with one Yokon Gold steamed potato with a little of the drippings from braising and baking the chops. :) I ate them using only a spoon. So tender and juicy I was easily able to cut the chops with the dull spoon. Melt in your mouth tastey!! I brined them for 3 hours, adding some home grown garlic the last 10 minutes. Seared them for over 5 minutes, turning 3 times. Put the pan in the oven for 5 minutes (It's a oven safe heavy 13" frying pan.) Let the chops set out of the oven for full 10 minutes while I finished making the potato. Had 7oz of Merlot wine with it. :) Breakfast is where I get all my minerals, vitamins, 35g fiber & 30 + grams protein. I didn't take pictures but check out those web sites I post above. Mine weren't as browned by far, but just enough to bring out the flavors. Okay, I'm NOT bragging, it is just so amazingly delicious, that I just wanted to share this with others whom may very well appreciate it. :) Sod Fat Carbs Fiber Prot Cals Lunch 589 30.70 39.20 2.1 72.90 882 Pork Chops (Top Loin, Boneless) 11.3 oz 570 18.87 68.40 461 Frieda's Yukon Gold Potatoes 161 g 9 28.41 1.9 3.79 133 COW GHEE Ghee (Clarified Butter) 15 g 11.79 2.79 107 Garlic 3 cloves 2 0.04 2.98 0.2 0.57 13 Merlot Wine 7.05 oz 8 5.02 0.14 168

HOW TO TURN OFF PAIN
TURN OFF PAIN, INSTANTLY 1. Most important, Learn to meditate. The 6 steps at http://www.wikihow.com/Overcom... is a good way to do that. Meditating is LETTING GO. 2. FOCUS ON the pain. 3. Go TOWARDS it, instead of away from it. As described, it's just warning you. Going away from it turns up the volume. :) Going right into the pain turns it DOWN. (I once banged my ankle on a weight training machine, giving me huge lightening bolts of pain up to my neck! I focused on it, which turned it down to a little tiny sensation at my ankle. Wondering if it had subsided on it's own, I backed off from the pain, and it resumed with agonizing lightening bolts all the way back up to my neck again. But, I focussed again, and held my attention on the spot, which was again just a tiny sensation at my left ankle, for a few minutes until it was gone.) 4. Practice. Practice meditating to the point that you can do it instantly. Meditating is just stopping thinking, letting go of everything. No judgements, no self criticism (negative self talk), or searching for a way to place blame. No recrimination at all. Instead, Remembering a time when you were peaceful, relaxed, serene. and just going to that state of mind. and holding it. That is what we can do: go instantly to that peaceful, serene state of mind, anytime, anywhere. Once we've practiced like this, We don't need to have our eyes closed, or be sitting a certain way, or laying down, or focussed on breathing. That is just to LEARN to meditate. (One day while driving, late for an appointment, seeing the green light ahead, I noticed that I had a habit of just letting go, [of meditating instantly], unconsciously turning off my concern that the light would turn yellow, then red before I got there. If the light did change, I found I didn't care. It didn't matter. I was serene.) 5. Once at this stage of learning, now move to learning to pay attention to where your consciousness is. Where your consciousness is in your body. Notice where are you aware the most? If your nose itches, your consciousness may shift to there. If there's a noise, it may shift to outside yourself. But I've found that it drifts around. So pay attention to where you are aware. Shift to meditate state, Put your focus (now you know how to do that) inside your head, between your eyes and push out with your consciousness, staying in the meditative state.  6. Pushing out hard enough and far enough (only a foot or so) turns off pain, anxiety, fear, anger. (I have turned down extreme kidney stone pain from level 10 of 10, to 3 of 10. I have used this technique instead of Novocain at the dentist for 40 years. and I use this every day countless times to turn off small and large pain, anxiety, and even hiccups. So, I KNOW it's possible, even very easy, to turn OFF extreme pain, both chronic pain like headaches, or sudden physical injuries. PRACTICE :)

Skipping breakfast? Binging?
Wow! for me it's exactly the other way around> If I skip breakfast I'm guaranteed to binge later. Or taking a LOT of will power NOT to binge. When I do eat a large breakfast I think it helps me to have lots of healthy nutrients in it, including lots of calories, then along with a good heathy lunch, my system gets used to have food being in process and available, being digested all day, and consequently NO cravings for anything in the afternoon or evening. Skipping breakfast puts me into Famine mode. My body metabolism slows down, conserving energy, storing fat for the unknown length of this famine it thinks I'm in. Long fasts every day? all night then half the morning? = famine. Naturally, We all need to find what works for ourselves, for Us. I just hate to see people struggling so much, since I believe extreme dieting and or long marathons of exercising just won't work in the long run. Short intense weight training works better. It needs to be FUN. :) I'd prefer to do things that I enjoy doing, like fun things that take energy to do. Walking, short sprints, playing any games like volleyball, tennis, racquetball, swimming, all for fun not exercise, even golfing, hiking, biking, gardening and so on. there are so many things to do that are fun and healthy, where we won't feel like we are grinding away on and on and on. This is what works for me and it's why I'm still lean and fit at 71 years old. Also, the easiest way to burn fat is to build muscles. Not with long marathons, but short weight lifting sessions. quote: And there are studies to show that the more muscle you have, the more calories you’ll burn after an intense (weight lifting?) workout [1]. When exercise ends, it takes time for everything to get back to normal. Depleted glucose and fat stores need to be refilled. Damaged muscle cells need to be repaired. All of this requires energy. And the more rebuilding that has to be done, the more calories (mainly from fat) are being burned after your workout is over. Or to put it another way, while the metabolic rate of resting muscle isn’t as high as previously thought, the metabolic rate of recovering muscle means that people with more muscle mass are going to burn more calories in the post-exercise period. 1. Smith, J., & McNaughton, L. (1993). The effects of intensity of exercise on excess post-exercise oxygen consumption and energy expenditure in moderately trained men and women.

CRAVINGS: Discipline & self control? NO that's not it.
LoL ! :) :) Lucy I just laughed, love your 'drawn to dogs' quote. :) and you are all welcome. :) pass on the message: BREAK FAST! (is SOO important)

CRAVINGS: Discipline & self control? NO that's not it.
We hear so much: QUOTE: "people say it's all about self control and discipline... &: ..and exercise: we are told it's a good hurt. NO.." END QUOTE. They are wrong. It is NOT about self control and discipline! We are bombarded with stress, tempted with unhealthy fattening foods, EVERYWHERE.! WE DON'T HAVE TIME required to take proper care of ourselves. (With long commutes, and/or too many things to do). It IS about taking charge, changing habits. TAKING time for ourselves. EATING A HUGE BREAKFAST! (We may think that's counterproductive? but it is KICKSTARTING our metabolism, denying we are in a famine, giving us the fuel we need for the rest of the day, so we don't go into CRAVINGS. and without a good huge breakfast WE WILL!) IT IS NOT about INHUMAN SELF DISCIPLINE! :) I'm slim, and lean, with some fat. NOT because I'm NATURALLY SKINNY. ANYONE CAN AND WILL GET FAT WITH THE CURRENT AVAILABLE DIET. (REMEMBER; when I was in grade school, 60 or more years ago, there was only ONE FAT KID IN THE ENTIRE SCHOOL.) AND, about the GOOD HURT. yes it feels good to do a balanced reasonable workout. (I've been working out at clubs and at home gym for over 30 years.) BUT I see SO MANY people at the clubs KILLING THEMSELVES, way OVERDOING IT, and getting no where, AFTER YEARS of doing this overkill. Long workouts will burn fat, yes, but only if we are in the fat burning pulse zone! Muscle burns fat all the time, while resting! Working out builds some muscle, and muscle is denser than fat, so we look BETTER, even while we weigh more that we expected. Or LOST less than expected. I NEVER shop for groceries when hungry. that's a habit. & habit: I always eat a large breakfast, balanced with minerals, micro nutrients, protein, fats, carbs. (carbs are not the enemy, unless we start CRAVING THEM due to NOT feeding our body in the morning and Noon.!) THAT IS THE SECRET! NO STRUGGLE, No INHUMAN discipline! Or super person marathon workouts! Only loving ourselves enough to properly nourish & care for ourselves. Getting enough sleep. getting up early enough for a good large healthy breakfast. Relaxing during the day. Enjoying being alive, and all our blessings :)

Logging Daily Food
[quote=Rckc]Is there any way to manually add something to food diary that isn't in fatsecret data base?[/quote] I add food to the database all the time. But sometimes it's not clear on how to do so. I think they changed it recently. got this from FAQ's menu, bottom of the page: [b][i]How do I add a food to the database? When you click "Add item" from your food diary, you can click on "New Item" or if you search for a food and can't find it in the database, you can click on "Add this item to the food database". You will then be able to add an item to the food database by completing all details for the food such as the brand, product and nutritional information. You can choose to share the food with other members and add it to any meal and use it over again. [/i][/b] checking today, I DON'T see "New Item" or add item, anywhere. also, it seems to be easier to do from my Android phone.

Thanks Mummydee and JustineJones, good ideas. I tried both, but fatsecret.ca made no difference, and Even one short sentence gets the same null result. Oh well, but very strange. every time I log in I check, and the same short bio I tried to enter comes up when I go to 'My Bio". with the same "SAVE" & "CANCEL" buttons waiting.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
[quote=Ann444]Wow that is great.:) I make my own acidophiles.(Milk kefir's) It too contains plenty of B vit. and K vit, plus acidophiles and bifacdophiles! It is great! :)~Ann [/quote] Thanks Ann, same to you :) I wish more people were aware, like you are, the many benefits of True 'Basic" foods. and that Probiotics like kefir and yogurt and kefir water actually PRODUCE B vitamins in our digestive system! FOOD is Medicine too. (BTW: I can't eat cow milk produces anymore, due to being allergic to milk protein (like most people actually are and don't know it.) Now I make Kefir Water. I'm glad you can still use kefir. :)

Symptoms of Vitamin B Deficiency
check out: http://www.healthline.com/heal... this article is good, but not surprisingly addresses only a very few of the 64 B vitamins in the complete B complex. Modern Science & Nutrition experts DO know we need the complete complex, but have only vague knowledge of what all the others actually do. quote: Ever wonder why doctors always tell you to eat a balanced diet? Say you love pineapple chicken, for example. Pineapples and chicken are both good for you, right? So, why can’t you just live off pineapple chicken? The reason is that the building blocks for good health come from a variety of foods, even if they are from the same family of nutrients. Such is the case with vitamin B, a key player in maintaining cell health and keeping you energized. Not all types of vitamin B do the same thing. Additionally, the different types of vitamin B all come from different types of foods. Vitamin B12, for example, is found primarily in meat and dairy products. B7 and B9 (and, to some degree, B1 and B2) are found in fruits and vegetables. END quote. Nutritional yeast and Spirulina have all the B vitamin complex, perfect balance of B vitamins, except for B12.

Head cold update:
Early evening yesterday I set all the clocks ahead for daylight savings. I went to bed early since I overdid it. but Last night was difficult. and a lot of restless sleep. The first few hours were very bad, sinus draining down throat, tickle & cough required to clear passages. Tried Ben Gay but made more drainage? However, I was in bed for 11.5 hours, so got some good much needed rest. Started the day with Nutritional yeast cure. Delayed but ate my breakfast. Good appetite, feeling better but had to blow my nose often until about 11am. Sinus flush helps.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
Ann444, yes, I"m in northern california. :) Nutritional yeast has enhanced my life, for almost 50 years. B vitamins do not store in our bodies, like most vitamins do, and we use them up when stressed, and since todays world causes a lot of stress, MOST people are deficient in B vitamins. We need it every day, not just when sick, since the requirment is high and we get so little in our 'modern' diets. Depleted soil, chemicals, apples that are HUGE, NOT so nutritious. It's also enhanced my cats life as well. I give him nutritional yeast or spirulina every day along with Kelp for minerals. Most everyone comments on how young he looks and acts at almost 18 years old. Although I am worried about him lately: he's lost a lot of wt. and not eating well, throwing up almost every day.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
[b]I overdid it today. the extra energy nutritional yeast gives me is nice, but I tend to do too much, not remembering that when sick I have no RESERVE. DID a few chores, the daily workout, worked on a customers car, and then spent an hour on the roof of the shed, applying Henry white sealer. Very thick stuff. ... but it's 70F in the shade and who knows what it was on the roof in direct sun, hot roofing, then very white sealer reflecting heat and light on me and in my face. Took a shower, had another dose (3rd one today) of Nutritional yeast cure cocktail. plus: I've had to do a nasal flush 5 times today. (Salt water, tiny amount of peppermint essential oil, and Horse chestnut tinture.) For the nutritional yeast to work when sick, need to take the cocktail alone, and not supposed to eat an hour before or after. [according to Paavo O. Airola, Ph.D., N.D., (1918–1983) was a nutritionist, naturopathic physician, educator and award-winning author] I have nutritional yeast every day in my breakfast (check my diet calendar) and it didn't PREVENT this cold from happening. but, it IS doing a good job of fighting it since I'm following directions when sick. in spite of my overdoing chores and expending energy I don't have. :)[/b]

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
wholefoodnut: yes! I think it is mandatory to have at home. :) Also Spirulina, which is pretty much the same for protein and B vitamins. Nutritional yeast is easier to mix though.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
Mar 7, 2015; When I am sick with a cold, sore throat or flu, I eat nutritional yeast, I still exercise, and actually do better. Since Nutritional yeast is the richest souce of the full B vitamin complex and is the ammunition for our immune system. Yesterday I got a sore throat, suspected head cold, confirmed overnight. So I started the day with my Cold and Flu cure: mostly Nutritional yeast. but check my diet log... Just now, 10am, I did five more pullups than last workout, and 10 more wide deep pushups than last time. and I'm supposed to be sick. I never get more than 5% to 10% sick when taking Nutrional yeast when fighting colds, etc. And most often I'm fully healed in 2 to 3 days (and have all the extra energy from the 'B vitamins'.) Hard to believe? It's been working for me for 40 years. There are 64 B vitamins in the B vitamin complex, and it's very important to get them in a balance, since they INCREASE CELL ACTIVITY (more energy and fast healing), so, B vitalmin PILLS don't work. All these B vitamin pills have massive doses of the common: B2, B6, B12, etc, but severely lack the rest, but legally can call it 'complete complex' since they have a tiny amount of brewers yeast in there as well. BTW we NEED to get sick once in a while (I was overdue) so our body can build up the antibodies for fighting the diseases.
