What the doctors forget to tell you
I agree! I think doctors are mostly trained in medicine instead of nutrition. That's why they usually prescribe pills to treat ailments instead of heathly foods that could help treat a lot of problems. Sad to say, but I think doctors and the pharmacutical companies work together for profit. They can't make any money if doctors start telling people to eat certain foods to prevent or even cure certain body problems. IMO

recovered from eating disorder and now the scales tipped too far
Like someone posted earlier, it’s not about starving yourself; it’s all about eating healthy. So how about approaching it from a lifestyle point of view instead of just a weight issue? That way you can focus on the whole spectrum of being healthy instead if just what to/what not to eat. Another thing I would recommend is to learn about proper nutrition. Learn about what your body really needs instead of buying into the false hype of fad diets that tells you stuff like you need more protein, more this or more that. If you live in the USA you need to understand that most of our processed foods are not as healthy as they claim to be. Foods that claim to be low calories/low fat could also be high in sugar and high in sodium, THEN they are packed with tons of chemical additives…so you still won’t get the proper nutrition your body really needs. Whether you do vegetarian, raw, vegan, or meat, make sure you eat as much natural foods as possible because your body is designed for natural foods, not processed. Overall, feel good about yourself no matter what your weight is. Our culture is geared in such a way that if you’re not the right size, then you’re a lesser person. But that’s a lie straight from the Devil’s pit because you’re beautiful regardless of what others say. Kudos buddy!

Misleading Serving Sizes?
As a business, restaurants are going to do whatever is necessary to keep people coming so they can make a profit. That means as consumers, it's really up to us to learn as much as we can about what is proper nutrition as well as portion control. We have the power to change the way the food industry is presenting foods to us by one, demanding acurate & detailed info about the ingredients, and two, the precise nutrition value of the food. The menu should also show the servings amount per dish because at some locations, one dish could be up to 3 servings! But it all has to start with we the consumers to educate ourselves about good nutrition, & and what's actually in the foods we eat.

Misleading Serving Sizes?
Seeing how many servings per dish in restaurant foods is what actually motivates me to prepare most of my meals at home.

Agree w/others. I usually use various spices for flavor and use very little if any salt at all.
