This entry was posted on Monday, April 1st, 2013 at 10:18 pm and is filed under Government Foolishness, Low-Fat Nonsense. Currently we are holidaying in Hawaii and now I understand so much more about the struggles anyone who wants to cut carbs, especially wheat, and eat good meat, healthy fats and fresh veggies.
Apart from our wheat free status being challenged we are having an amazing time and can highly recommend going off the beaten track on Big Island.
Currently we are staying on a coffee plantation and will wake up tomorrow to the most stunning view down the mountain side and out to sea.
Wish there was a faster way to wake up every-man to the absurdities of state generated health advice. So much simpler to make the meat the centre of the universe, and just add random stuff for variety and taste.
While I do get that part of the government policy is their belief in the low-fat theory of health, hence the pushing of low- and non-fat dairy, oil and butter have the same calories and relatively same fat content (not type of fat, but overall fat). That said, I guess canola and other oils wouldn’t be feeling the love unless they got a loud shout out on the menus, so butter had to take one for the team in this case. In conclusion, canola oil ingestion shortens the life span of SHRSP rats and leads to changes in oxidative status, despite an improvement in the plasma lipids.
On the bright side prisoners are not supposed to feel all comfy and loved, they are being punished so I guess doing you time constantly hungry is just a little bonus pain and suffering!!! There is a tendency to question myself from time to time, am I pro LCHF because it makes me one of the cool kids who was in on it early, or is it really because the data supports that position. In trying to create a lot of (unnecessary?) variety, these menus are also kind of complicated and fussy.
Positive note, a friend of mine who insisted she’d never give up bread actually ordered her pulled pork sandwich with no bun the other day when we had lunch together.
Unfortunately, the whole lot of us are becoming prisoners to this nonsense in one way or another. So for the USDA to decide the problem is that people didn’t grasp the Food Pyramid and essentially repackage the same advice is ridiculous. Do you know of any studies that look at diet in connection to post traumatic stress disorder? Such pathetic food plan,wrong on all levels – boring, hunger-causing and unpractical in a preparation food which only a person with OCD could be willing to try to eat day after day ! My lunch today (sitting in the fridge, waiting for me to leave for work) is sausage and scrambled eggs. Who, on a regular diet with nothing else on their toast, would put only 2 teaspoons of jam on their bread?! Apparently people from the USDA sit in a room, make up these meal instructions, and then convince themselves people will actually follow them. How did the human race ever take over the planet (or even survive at all) without the USDA to tell us what to eat, or personal trainers to tell us how to move?
Perhaps they want you all to consume fat free milk so they can have the cream all to themselves! Page three of the document linked to has the average vitamin and mineral intakes for the meals.
The USDA must also think it will connect with Americans by speaking through Michelle Obama.
Not to mention the people who are in prison for violating drug laws but didn’t rob, murder, or otherwise harm someone else. I used to eat how they told me to, and I gained a bunch of weight and was so hungry all the time.
I am not sure I could stand being in the same room with the First Lady for an entire luncheon, but it would be worth it just to watch 49 other parents trying desperately to get their 49 kids to eat their vegetables. Ever notice how, when the president or his wife or kids are photographed eating something, it is always cheeseburgers, pizza, barbecue, hot dogs, ice cream etc?
For the USDA to propose that eating this way will result in weight loss is a complete fraud. This applies to all types of diets researched, though I would guess that a long term study of low carb diets would yield better results if people were able to stick with it (a big if, as sticking with any diet long term is very rare).
Most inmates have access to commissary if they have money (most do) I worked evening shift as a correctional officer and loved commissary days. I have to admit that I’ve eaten this way most of my adult life because I am so good at following directions. And since butter is dairy, something that is subsidized like corn and wheat, you would think they would promote that in some way as well. Systolic blood pressure increased over time with a significant difference between the diets at the 6th week of feeding. Then I read what my government tells me is correct and understand the data is supported by the facts… and I’m one of the cool kids!
Soaking and roasting beans, cooking potatoes, and brining lean meat to make it edible chewed up a lot of my time.
If we check NHANES data, we see that people are consuming pretty close to the macronutrient ratio recommended by the USDA. I could, based on the calorie calcs, take in about 2500 cals a day inactive and still lose weight, and I do.
Try half a pound sauteed in butter with salt and pepper and lemon washed down with a nice ribeye. Kinda weird for savory flavors IMO, but nice with salted butter and a touch of jam or honey.
For all these perishable ingredients, as Marilyn pointed out, how much are you going to have to buy to get these little amounts of food? I have started a paleo diet (sort of, i still enjoy white bread every once in a while), and I have been talking to my grandfather, who used to be a cardiologist. I have now talked to a number of people in which the conversation goes exactly like this: Hey you look great! The inmates would take their junk food back to their cells and we would have a quiet evening while they all ate themselves into a carb coma. I had a perfect Caprese Salad for lunch today, but avoiding $^%$#^* food is not always easy. Finding wheat free food is requiring a certain amount of imagination and sometimes, deeper pockets. There truly is nothing new under the sun in this case, but there are more and more products on the shelves masquerading as such. And maybe, just maybe, the word about carb overload is getting out, because I heard several muttered comments about how carby it all was. Two ounces of meat and a little cheese, a lot of starch and a salad for dinner and soup for lunch on Day 4? They recommend ONLY reduced-fat dairy and meats for everyone, regardless of age, health, weight. My coworkers laugh at me when I pull out my lunch sometimes – a carton of (soft cooked) eggs and a stick of butter.
It’s sliced and wrapped in foil in the fridge and has not gone bad almost a week later.
Are you seriously supposed to soak, rinse and cook half of cup of kidney beans (or buy a can and throw out most of it, because beans don’t keep long), or use a few tablespoons of salsa and throw the rest away (because salsa doesn’t keep either), and throw out that extra ounce of tuna? The average inmate would go up a size or two over the course of a year with some, especially females, gaining close to 100 lbs in that time. I bought fat-free dairy products and convinced myself they tasted better than full-fat ones.
Always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any diet, exercise, or supplementation program, before taking any medication, before starting any treatment program or if you have or suspect you have a health problem. Each place we’ve stayed in has wonderful coffee and jars of powdered coffee creamer for guests.
My bet would be if you broke this menu down it would be severely lacking in several key nutrients. It made me feel uneasy, what are they going to do about fatty meats and butter in a nearest future? Some information, products and claims on this website have not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are not approved to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. When I did a low-fat diet, I ate a lot more protein, which is why it worked for me for so long. My fridge is so tidy now that when my boyfriend last visited he looked rather stunned when he opened it and there was a place (lots of places in fact) to put that bottle of Chablis he brought for us. But that wasn’t such a boon because I refused to eat meat or other concentrated sources of protein. I thought that was plenty because I only lost weight when I cut down to under 1000 daily calories. Even when I cut to under 1000, my weight loss was never more than a pound a week, sometimes only a pound a month. It’s blowing my mind that I need to eat closer to 2500 calories a day to be healthy, and that this amount does not cause me to gain but actually causes me to lose about a pound a week just as my sub-1000 calorie diet did. Let me introduce you to the 800 Calorie HCG diet.The 800 Calorie HCG Diet is all about losing weight quickly in the safest way possible.
This means no strain on the body, no hunger or cravings, and perhaps more importantly, your metabolism will not slow down – which means you will lose weight almost constantly while on the diet.
The HCG is taken along with an 800 calorie food plan for optimum weight loss.The hormone HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is the basis of the diet.
HCG normally works in pregnant women to metabolize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. It has been used in many forms by millions of people all over the world with no safety issues reported. Since the HCG diet contains moderate protein and almost no sugar or fat, it’s safe for diabetics and people with hypertension, thyroid problems and controlled heart disease.The side effects are almost non-existent and not much different than any other low calorie diet (especially when the HCG diet protocols are followed properly). They include episodes of weakness and low blood sugar (often seen when skipping meals), constipation and lack of energy. All of these feelings are due to the marked reduction in sugar and all are transient, generally subsiding after a week or two. After treating thousands of people, I have seen almost no side effects from my HCG Protocol. That’s much better than prescription diet medication or even over-the-counter (or internet) diet supplements!HCG can be used in men and women with equal safety and effectiveness. Men do not gain any female characteristics since HCG is only a pregnancy hormone protecting the baby – it has nothing to do with menstruation, breast or hair development. In fact, men lose weight much faster on HCG than women!800 Calorie HCG Diet Plan – Great Food ChoicesThe 800 Calorie HCG Diet food plan is based on food choices that have been tested in thousands of patients in my private practice in Miami, FL. We carefully evaluate every low-calorie product that has little to no sugar and no fat to see if its HCG friendly. In doing so, we have added many products that are very low-calorie, have little to no sugar or carbs, and very little fat to Dr.
The tremendous amount of food options make following the food plan and losing weight on my HCG diet a great experience for my patients.Each new food selection follows the principles of Dr. It means that products (assuming calories are appropriate) must have 2 grams of sugar or less and 2 grams of fat or less.

Lipman writes, “almost all my patients noted more energy and less cravings with the larger portions and more choices in the new 800 calorie plan.
