I have one FB friend who posts anti vegetarian stuff all the time, and too my knowledge, he doesn't know any vegetarians. He's also 150 pounds over-weight, so I'm glad all that meat is working out for him.
I have another friend who recently had a heart attack, I was going to give him the Dr. Esselstyn information, but he started posting stuff about raw milk and paleo on his way home from the hospital. I don't know him quite well enough to slap some sense into him.
My best friend, who is coming for memorial day, used to run a multi-line BBS system (Google it if you need). So he is kind of like the social leader (still) of a very large group of people where I used to live. If he were to become a McDougaller, there would be another dozen or so start up within the week. Including the first two guys I mentioned.AlwaysAgnes
I had forgotten to mention to her in that conversation about the new plaques being the ones to cause heart attacks. I did find a way to bring it up Yesterday. Her conclusion is that because I am genetically "weird" this is the diet I have to eat. She on the other hand can eat meat, cheese and cream all day long and be perfectly healthy. /bogglecarollynne
How much classroom time is there to get the certificate?
I saw this and thought it was interesting. http://engine2diet.com/food_coach/Become_A_Food_Coach
Not nearly the same thing as a T. Colin Campbell nutrition course, but it might be interesting. I look forward to hearing about your experiences with the course.
The scale moved this morning. It's been awhile. I bought a bunch of shirts at Wal-Mart Yesterday, so I bagged up all of the 3XL and 4XL shirts in my dresser. I didn't spend that much on the new shirts, so it won't bother me to have to bag them up in another 6 months or so, I just had to have a stop over size.
Set a new personal best at the gym on the treadmill Friday. 2.35 miles in 30 minutes. I remember 1.5 miles in 30 minutes being an accomplishment.
Let's see the most recent fight with the wife was about my beard. I trimmed it short. She got mad said I had butchered it, and I was embarrassing myself by trying to look young. My conclusion, I must look REALLY good with the trimmed beard...
I never heard back from #4Son's GF, about the links I forwarded to her from AlwaysAgnes about her Ulcerative Colitis. She was visiting last night. Sounds like she's going to opt for surgery. They are going to cut out a section of her colon and then attempt to grow some more over the course of 6 months. While this process is happening, she will have a colostomy bag installed. So she would rather have experimental surgery and a colostomy bag installed, than try a plant based diet? Really? I mean really? She's 20!
I bought a bag of popcorn and a bag of brown paper bags Yesterday. Told the family I was going to make microwave popcorn. They said,"You can't do that!", "It won't work!", "You can't just put popcorn into a bag and microwave it and expect it to work!". 3 Tablespoons of popcorn, 90 seconds in the microwave, winning!
