Ever since I've indicated that I am open to suggestions for improving my diet, a couple of people have been really aggressive about it, telling me I can't eat this, that, or the other food. One thing that is also definitely noticeable is everyone says I need to eat more meat, which sucks, because I really don't like it. Can't they just make a meat pill that has all the crap in it? That would be really cool...

I want pie and cookies. Why can't meat taste like that, instead of the bleach that is is?

I want a juicer. I think lettuce and vegetables would be a lot more tolerable if I could grind 'em up with some fruit, disguising the flavor. I remember that earlier in my bakery career, there was a guy who would come by to buy an eclair, and he brought me juice from his juicer at home. It always tasted really good - like berries or apples or bananas - and he would tell me there was kale, or other vegetables mixed in. It seems like a really good way to get your nutrition. Juicers involve buying, and I'm low on cash. Mommy has a blender, but it isn't quite the same.

I think that the week after I finish working at the bakery (April 5th - 10th) I'm going to go on a Detox diet. Everything has to be fresh; so fresh fruits and veggies are OK but chocolate and McDonald's is not. (No chocolate! It's gonna kill me...;_;) Strictly, it's supposed to be all fruits/all vegetabls, juiced up, but I'm never gonna be able to do that with all these meat-eaters watching my diet, so I'm going to eat "fresh meat" that I have to cook myself (bleah!) and eggs. Mostly eggs, because I don't want to cook meat. This is supposed to be really great for clearing out the toxins in your body; anyone wanna join me?

Laaa...

I'm sleepy. G'night.

Maybe meat has some good stuff in it, but there's nothing you can get out of meat that you can't get elsewhere. It drives me crazy when people act all shocked and say I must be so unhealthy because I don't eat meat and therefor not get any protein. (people can be so ignorant, of COURSE there are things besides meat with protein in them! ><) The only thing I know of that is not present outside of meat except in trace amounts is Creatine.. but you can get supplements of it easily. With none of the health risks associated with eating meat (sorry I am paranoid after getting food poisoning from a hamburger when I was young, and now this whole mad cow thing). I personally think the low-carb/high-protein thing is crap, and even if you lose weight on it, it's better to do what you suggested with the Detox diet, and the Fat Flush plan is similar... Although drinking lots of unsweetened cranberry juice is really disguisting XD I would do it too but my diet is mostly fruits and veggies and lots of CARBS anyway. Down with McDonald's~

Re: I'm a nutrition nerd
What would you recommend for getting protein besides meats? I drink a lot of milk and eat cheese and yogurt, as well as eating eggs at least once a week. But I know there must be more sources for protein, I just don't know what.

I'm not planning to lose weight (I don't even hit triple digits as it stands, I can't afford to lose weight!) I'm just trying to be healthier, because there's a lot of junk inside me, I'm sure. Bleah. Damn chocolate addiction...so bad yet so tasty. :D
