Eggs anyone?
I was reading an interesting article concerning eggs and cholesterol. I am pasting the relevant parts of the article. It said, "The truth is that cholesterol is a very important part of the body. It is a structural molecule that is an essential part of every single cell membrane. It is also used to make steroid hormones like testosterone, estrogen and cortisol. Without cholesterol, we wouldn’t even exist. Given how incredibly important cholesterol is, the body has evolved elaborate ways to ensure that we always have enough of it available. Because getting cholesterol from the diet isn’t always an option, the liver actually produces cholesterol. But when we eat a lot of cholesterol rich foods, the liver starts producing less. So the total amount of cholesterol in the body changes only very little (if at all), it is just coming from the diet instead of from the liver. It appears that the response to whole egg consumption depends on the individual. In 70% of people, it has no effect on Total or LDL cholesterol. However, in 30% of people (termed “hyper responders”), these numbers do go up slightly. That being said, I don’t think this is a problem. The studies show that eggs change the LDL particles from small, dense LDL to Large LDL. People who have predominantly large LDL particles have a lower risk of heart disease. So even if eggs cause mild increases in Total and LDL cholesterol levels, this is not a cause for concern. The science is clear that up to 3 whole eggs per day are perfectly safe for healthy people who are trying to stay healthy. Bottom Line: Eggs consistently raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol. For 70% of people, there is no increase in Total or LDL cholesterol. There may be a mild increase in a benign subtype of LDL in some people. Many studies have looked at egg consumption and the risk of heart disease. All of these studies are so-called observational studies. In studies like these, large groups of people are followed for many years. Then the researchers use statistical methods to figure out whether certain habits (like diet, smoking or exercise) are linked to either a decreased or increased risk of some disease. These studies, some of which include hundreds of thousands of people, consistently show that people who eat whole eggs are no more likely to develop heart disease. Some of the studies even show a reduced risk of stroke. However… one thing that is worth noting, is that these studies show that diabetics who eat eggs are at an increased risk of heart disease. Whether the eggs are causing the increased risk in diabetics is not known. These types of studies can only show a correlation and it is possible that the diabetics who eat eggs are, on average, less health conscious than those who don’t. This may also depend on the rest of the diet. On a low-carb diet (by far the best diet for diabetics), eggs lead to improvements in heart disease risk factors. Bottom Line: Many observational studies show that people who eat eggs don’t have an increased risk of heart disease, but some of the studies do show an increased risk in diabetics. Eggs Have Plenty of Other Health Benefits Too." I don't know that I would eat 6 or 7 eggs a day, but I certainly wouldn't worry about 2 or 3.

The Whole Calorie Counting Thing
Don't 'worry' about anything. It's proven that worrying causes high cholesterol. Do everything in moderation. Obviously, if your RDI is 2000 calories a day, you are not going to have a healthy weight loss if you consume those 2000 calories in candy bars which are primarily sugars. Whether you are following Adkins, South Beach Diet, or your own eating plan, eat a balance of nutritious foods and stay close to your RDI for weight loss. And stay active, if you're not building muscle which burns more fat even when you're sleeping, you will have a very frustrating journey. It's all about the balance of good nutrition, exercise and taking in less calories than you expend. There are a lot of good articles on this site for helping maintain that balance. Hope this helps.

I noticed sometimes pics don't show up if you make comments after them. Sometimes just making the pics the last entry makes them show up, even if you don't change anything else. I consider that a bug, but it's been that way for me off and on for two years.

Why are all of my posts in the forums
Seriously, I think we all went through this at one time or another when we first got started. As Nicole mentioned, at the bottom of this page in the blue border is an email contact link for FS. All you have to do is send them a note that your posts are getting sent to moderation, and they will fix it. For some reason, there seems to be something that you can do as a relative newcomer that flags this. It must be a simple fix; usually doesn't even take a day.

I like the idea of the romaine lettuce wrap. It's the bread that is my downfall. Think I'll try that. You can have the alfalfa sprouts though. :)

That's just plain gross! It seems that it would actually cause you to overindulge since there is no consequences - except maybe bolemia.

I have heard that coffee stalls weight loss, but there are critics of just about everything I put in my mouth. I count the non-dairy creamer on my diet calendar. I drink a lot of diet soda as well. I have even been taking 1600 mg of the green coffee bean extract each day for the last two weeks also. I did have a caffeine overdose once when I drank a quadruple expresso from Starbucks. I was bouncing off the wall. But other than that, I don't see any ill effects. In fact, I think it keeps me from gorging on things like sausage, egg and cheese biscuits, or donuts, or blueberry muffins, or pancakes, etc. down at the cafeteria. Sometimes the teaspoonful of non-dairy creamer is enough to knock the edge off my hunger craving. It just works for me.

Dang, Buffy! I drink that many in an hour; I should have lost 150 pounds by now! LOL!

Guy calls that news anchor overweight
I think she (and they) over reacted. He was an idiot; he was full of crap, stating that it was her responsibility to be thin as a role model for children. If she had received an email stating that she was "hot" and fat women ought to show our young people that beauty is on the inside, you wouldn't have heard a peep out of her. On the flip side, the media use their free speech rights all the time to attack people that don't share their station's opinion, calling them bigots, intolerant, haters, etc. Isn't this a little sanctimonious and intolerant?

For a technical explanation of how your RDI is calculated based on your Total Daily Energy Expenditure, check out the topic 'How is Your Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) Determined?' in the 'Moderation Motivation' Group Forum.

DON'T DO CARDIO - Must Read!
Our ancestors didn't have Lucky Charms and Sunny Delight either. Some people have no desire to do cardio, some do it for a lifestyle change and some go to extremes for a short time to get thos 6-pk abs. The only thing I've got against the insanity type cardio programs is that the participants push the envelope for 90 days or so, get very fit, consume inordinate amounts of carbs, and then taper off, and sometimes continue to consume inordinate amounts of carbs, and then, guess what? Their weight chart looks like the business cycle. I've never known anyone that continued with the P90 or similar programs for extended periods of time. Runners are about the only ones, I know of, that continue the regimen for a lifetime, and I have yet to see any evidence that suggests that this decreases their longevity at all - quite the contrary. Runners may scale back on their HIIT workouts as they grow older, but I have actually seen people still pulling off marathons in their 90's. I think the empirical data contradicts the theoretical in this case.

DON'T DO CARDIO - Must Read!
Since chronic means continuing for a long time or recurring frequently, I suppose the author proposes we do cardio for short periods of time and infrequently. That's how I got in the condition I found myself in. LOL!

O ye of little faith! Kirstie Alley, Marie Osmond, Jennifer Hudson. Were they 'really' not attractive and sexy before Nutrisweet and Weight Watchers? Hmmmm. Must be something amiss in my chemistry.

However, just because the anti-perspirant seems to work for me, I thought I might better look into the what others say about it: "Aluminum-based compounds are used as the active ingredient in antiperspirants. These compounds form a temporary plug within the sweat duct that stops the flow of sweat to the skin's surface. Some research suggests that aluminum-based compounds, which are applied frequently and left on the skin near the breast, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects (3). Because estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, some scientists have suggested that the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may contribute to the development of breast cancer (3) . . . Because studies of antiperspirants and deodorants and breast cancer have provided conflicting results, additional research is needed to investigate this relationship and other factors that may be involved." BTW, this quote is from the Fact Sheet at the National Cancer Institute. These ingredients are NOT in Body Glide, which contains the following ingredients: Active Ingredients: Allantoin (Comfrey Root) (Skin Protectant) Inactive Ingredients: Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract, C18 36 Acid Triglyceride, Capric/Caprylic Stearic Triglyceride, Tribehenin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) [url=]National Cancer Institute Fact Sheet[/url]

Funny that you mention that, Hoser. Men's Power Stick, available at the Dollar Tree, works as good as body lube for keeping the thighs from rubbing together. Women aren't the only ones that have to deal with this issue. Most of the time, when on a longer run, which I haven't had lately, I'll wear the spandex type undershorts, under my running shorts, to keep friction-ree. I'd almost forgotten that I used to use this stuff.
