Top 10 Fattiest Chain Breakfasts
Yikes! One breakfast with all the calories I eat in one day now. No wonder we're probably the fattest, sickest people on the planet. Just over a year ago I was eating like that dude from Man Vs Food. Well, almost that bad. I still have issues with cleaning my plate when I shouldn't. I have to stay away from places that serve blintzes now... my breakfast poison of choice before my new WOE.

GREEN TEA?!
I switched from coffee to green tea and I am definitely losing belly fat, but it's probably due more to my cutting way down on refined carbs and sugars. I like Whole Foods' organic cranberry pomegranate green tea. It gives it just enough of a fruity taste to make it more palatable than plain green tea.

Cilantro.... love it or hate it??
Love it! They use a bunch of fresh cilantro on the tacos at my favorite stand at the farmers market. I always thought cumin was the spice of choice on tacos, but cilantro is so much better. Cumin actually smells like BO to me.

Healthy Halloween treats?
MomofTwo, those are really cute ideas. The heck with the kids, I might do a variation of those for myself! ;) an00bis, the small cereal boxes sound like a pretty good idea too. Or maybe some trail mix packs or bars if I can find them in really small sizes.

Healthy Halloween treats?
Canajun, kid tats are a neat idea. I've never handed out anything but candy, so I wonder if noncandy will be a hit or a miss. Kids do seem to like happy meal-type toys. I wonder, too, how many parents are waiting at home to partake of the stash. Rune, no way could I have any Reese's around here. I'm not allergic and those things were like crack to me!

Healthy Halloween treats?
Dark chocolate is a great idea. Then if I slip up and cheat, the damage won't be too bad. I haven't seen mini packs of seeds/nuts, but that's another good idea. I remember when people gave out apples and fresh fruit, but parents are right to cautiously throw that stuff out these days.

Where is everyone from?
I live in a suburb of Birmingham AL. It's an old-town neighborhood with fixer-upper 1920s homes rather than a subdivision thing, so it has nice character. I like it a lot. I get my grocery staples from Publix or Whole Foods and my fresh veggies from our pitiful farmer's market on the industrial side of town. We have a couple of nice stores that sell fresh fish too. The sad thing about this town is that it has some incredibly good chefs and restaurants -- James Beard nominees. And we're surrounded by farm land. But food shopping here is not organized or promoted well. It's lots of little vendors doing their own thing. I wish we had something like Seattle's Pike Place.

Healthy Halloween treats?
What are you guys handing out to the kiddies this year? I usually buy the jumbo bags of bite-size chocolate and candy corn stuff, but I'd prefer to avoid that if I can. My buddy Johanne said that peanuts make Payday a fairly nutritious choice. I saw elsewhere that someone was giving out sugar-free gum. I hate to just give out a pecan and a penny like I used to get from some neighbors back in the stone ages when I trick-or-treated. Also, can anyone recommend good treats for kids with braces? My neighbor's little girl got braces and I'd love to give her a treat that won't stick. Thanks, buddies. :)

Thoughts on Greek Yogurt
Why thank you, katballew! I've always had a thing for Mr Staypuft. And I kinda miss marshmallows still. :(

Thoughts on Greek Yogurt
I love the convenient little Chobanis with fruit if you gotta have a grab 'n' go meal. But my favorite right now is Cabot low-fat Greek-style plain yogurt. This is a Vermont-based cheese producer and their yogurt is incredibly creamy. I love it! I had been eating Stonyfield, but their low-fat version is pretty watery by comparison. The Cabot is worth the few extra calories. I mix in whatever fruit is in season and a little granola and that sweetens it enough. Had some with Idaho peaches today. Mmm-mmm!

10 Things You Need to Know
Just watched the whole thing. Very interesting. I wondered about the dairy too... Will calcium from other sources (like supplements) work just as well as dairy in purging fat?

multivitamin
Thanks for all the advice, everyone! I'll check these out. Kimbur, no, I haven't even seen a doc in a couple of years. It's probably time to go in for an overall physical checkup and I'll ask about iron. Hadn't thought about it!

multivitamin
Can anyone here recommend a multivitamin that they feel really helps them? I'm a female over age 50. I've never taken them consistently before. Lately, I've felt a little fatigued and not sure if it's related to lower calories or not. I gave up coffee a couple of weeks ago, but switched to green tea (about 3 cups a day), so maybe it's related to that. I just bought some omega 3 fish oil supplements and took one today. I guess you can mix some supplements. Any recommendations for specific brands -- or even good health product review websites -- would be appreciated. (btw, I did try to search this site for recs and didn't find any threads right off the bat.)

Obesity rates still rising in the US
Oh, one last thing I wanted to share since we're talking about the relationship between low incomes and obesity ... there's this neat website, www.PoorGirlEatsWell.com, where this young lady shares her recipes for delicious and pretty healthy low-budget meals. I just wish we had a Trader Joe's in our state.

Ha! Don't blame my mallowy goodness! ;) True, I have always envisioned CO as being on the cool side, but I bet it's for a relatively short span. As a sweaty fat girl, I would gladly trade your weather for ours. Maybe when I get shed of some of these rolls, it won't seem as bad.

Obesity rates still rising in the US
I wonder if you were to overlay a map of Krispy Kreme's store openings since 2000, you'd see a correlation on k8's map. I'm an obese (eventually to be unobese) southerner, but not living in poverty and not completely ignorant. It's hotter 'n 2 hells here for long stretches during the year, and you can bet that curtails my enthusiasm for outdoor activity. If I lived in Colorado, it would be another story. Although they probably don't fry Twinkies in CO either. I know, I know... it's hot in AZ too, but humidity is a killah! So we're probably not as active here in general, and I guess you could call that laziness. That plus the fact most of us are raised on co'-colas and gravy hasn't helped. It's not an excuse, just the way it is. One last random comment, have you ever seen those news segments about "obesity on the rise" and they show footage of fat people from the waist dow milling around in public? I'm mortified that I'll recognize myself one day!

healthiest black bean source?
Thought I'd report on my black bean experience. I bought a bag of Publix brand dried beans. I brought them to a boil and then let them soak off the stove overnight. After at least 10 hours of soaking, I rinsed them and then brought them to a boil again and then simmered on stove for another hour. Turned off the stove and let them sit another hour or so. Heck, I probably could've let them soak for 2 days and they would've been okay. They were still quite firm, but it was perfect for a salad because they didn't get mushy, even with some yogurt and lime juice. Very tasty! But they kinda stink up the house while cooking. Anyways, thanks again everyone for the helpful tips!
