One says to get 10 servings of fruit and veggies a day (almost double what is currently recommended) and that eating more than that does not give us any added benefits.

The other says to eat 23(!) servings of fruit and veggies and enjoy the anti-inflammatory benefits of statin drugs! Then again, how in the world do you AFFORD, much less EAT, 23 servings of fruit and veggies!!!

Along similar lines, i came across a "new" idea - everybody metabolizes foods differently. You need to get a "personalized" menu plan after having dna, blood sugars and lifestyle evaluated - for right around $300!!!!! I'd love to do it just to see what it says but, yeah, not happening. ;)

BESIDES, how do you do that for the whole family?! Goofiness!

I know this may sound very odd but something i've noticed, whenever i start eating whole real foods for the majority of my meals, i start my period. Maybe it's because part of my PMS is "planning" and i get revved up to start something new - often "eating right".

ANYWAYS, i've been trying to eat healthy foods and pay attention to how i feel after i eat them. Coffee often makes me feel bad. :( Iced coffee doesn't seem to, tho'???

I had salmon, tabouli and a chickpea/avocado salad for lunch and feel good. I had eggs for breakfast without any toast and felt good. I had a yummy black bean/lentil hamburger (wrapped in lettuce) with all the fixings and it blew right thru me!!! NOT a good feeling. Maybe i just had too much beans/lentils after not eating them for awhile. I dunno. I'll work up to them this time.

Another weird thing, my joints - especially my jammed thumb joint - hurt pretty bad the last couple of days!!! I wouldn't have tho't too much about it except that it's been better for a month or so until i started eating healthier! I may not have put those 2 things together except a friend of mine is eating a no-fruit diet because her holistic doctor mentioned fruit can be related to arthritis joint pain!

Is it food-combining or the actual types of foods that bother us? I think Linda was talking about not eating certain foods with other certain foods. ??

Another thing, as we get older, we should really be eating less. I remember preparing meals when I worked for the elderly and they would tell me 'lunch' lasted them several meals. Same goes for meds, dosages should be less for an elderly person.

On the joint pain, I know a lady that swears that eating jello a few times a week cured her knees. She used to not be able to walk very much because they would ache. I started eating jello.

That actually is an urban legend. The truth is:

Gelatin is made from the bones, hides, and other parts of animals, including horses.

But I think our knees and joint need that.

I grew up watching my mom roast beef bones in the oven then make a perfectly yummy beef soup with them.

I grew up buying our food from a restaurant! :D

My friend's mom offered me soup one time. It was SO yummy! As i sipped at it i asked her what it was and she said "ox tail soup". Yeah, well, that's the last bite i took. :roll: I know! I'm way to mental. I think a hypnotist would have an easy time with me. :ugeek:
