Nutritional training that our Doctors get (or not). :)
(Most Doctors have no clue regarding proper nutrition. but we are always referred to 'our Doctor' for everything related to health and diet.
Food is medicine. One of my Doctors once told me that eating ONLY Hotdogs the rest of my life would provide more than adequate nutrition. "
2016; Nutrition education in current graduate medical education is poor. Most programs lack the expertise or time commitment to teach a formal course but recognize the need to meet educational requirements. A broad-based, diverse universal program is needed for training in nutrition during residency.

how to remove rice from diet?
No idea really. Sad
For me though, cutting down on carbs in general and boosting protein helped a lot.
Don't really crave rice or carbs now. Instead I feel like eating protein.
(2018 Update: found later I was eating way too much protein, damage to liver, and kidney stones... had to go vegan)

8/17/16, looked up webmd RE: protein powders/
too much protein can be hard on your kidneys and your liver.”
says I may need 94g to MAX 120g protein / day. at my wt. (150) that’s .625 x 150 = 93.75g and 0.8 x 150 = 120g
SAYS NO ONE, can use more that .9g per pound of body wt. even top athletes or body builders.

The recommended daily intake of protein for healthy adults is 0.75 g of protein/kg body weight, which translates into approximately 45 to 56 g of protein a day.
The daily intake for adult athletes is about 1.5 g/kg body weight, with a range of 1-2 g/kg body weight.
But excessive protein intakes can cause a buildup of ketones bodies.
When there is an excessive accumulation of ketone bodies, an abnormal but not necessarily harmful state called ketosis results.
With progressively higher levels of ketone bodies, the body's pH is lowered to dangerously acidic levels, leading to a state called ketoacidosis.
As your kidneys rid your body of these toxic ketones, you can lose a significant amount of water, which puts you at risk of dehydration, particularly if you exercise heavily.
And dehydration from a ketogenic diet can make you feel weak and dizzy, give you bad breath, and lead to other health problems.
While there is no evidence that high protein intake per se would be detrimental for bone mass, it appears reasonable to avoid high protein diets (i.e., more than 2 g/kg body weight/day) when associated with low calcium intake (i.e., less than 600 mg/day).

*(1.5 x my wt of 68 kilo (150Lb) is 1.5 * 68 = 102g/day of protein.*

always learning! Smile

Low carb high protein bars, no baking. :) anyone have good recipes??
I'm not needing to do the LCHF since I'm pretty much at my best weight, but I am becoming aware how much CARBS affect my life! Smile
It's too easy to get 'energy bars' or quick food that's loaded with corn syrup or sugar, but hard to find things that are high protein without the high carbs.

so, I found this recipe online;
Low Carb Protein bars, no baking!:

YIELD 6 bars
1⁄2 cup flax seed meal (grind whole flax in a coffee grinder)
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
10 tablespoons protein powder (I use rice protein)
3 tablespoons carob powder
1⁄3 cup almond butter
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1⁄2 cup water (more or less, as necessary)
36 grams Spirulina (bill’s addition)
36 grams Nutritional Yeast (bill’s)

. 1. Mix all dry ingredients well.
. 2. Mix together almond butter and coconut oil in a small cup (if the oven is warm (not hot!) I place it in there for a minute to soften it before stirring.
. 3. Add almond butter and oil to dry ingredients and mix WELL (I actually use my hands to do this). The mixture will be rather dry and crumbly.
. 4. Add vanilla extract and water (I'd recommend adding water gradually, starting with 1/4 cup, so you don't overdo it) and mix well.
. 5. Grease a 9x9 pan (or similar size) and press dough into pan. I press for a few minutes with my hand to create a consistent thickness.
. 6. Chill in the fridge for several hours to set, then cut into approximately 6 pieces. Wrap each one individually for a quick snack, or store them with wax paper in-between.

so, you can see I added things. took out one thing, but have not tried it yet.
anyone found something like this?
and what do you think?

Problems now finding foods, different lately for you too?
Has anyone else had trouble finding foods that you previously entered
yourself or foods that are not common that you've used before? but now can't find?
Also, does the search have a lot fewer choices now? whereas before it would keep
scrolling down, and then even offer several more pages?
Now for me it rarely offers more pages, and sometimes just a couple choices and
that are different enough to be odd that they include them.?
This has been true now for a month or so, and both on the Mac using 2 different
browsers, and on my android Sony z5 xperia phone.
ALSO, separate issue, only on z5 phone: now when entering a new (& previously
entered food that can't be found) on the android, choosing weight is different,
and offers 100g or serving choices. but when I choose 100g, it does not have a
way to enter any amount. it just stays at 100g grayed out. ??
