Food for Thought

As part of a series of lifestyle changes that I am undertaking to add to assist my healthy and longevity, I am finally breaking down and visiting a dietician/nutritionist. At any rate, whenever I discuss diets/dieting with my mother, she invariably mentions her favorite diet of all times, one that one of her co-workers always uses.

The diet? To eat only foods he doesn’t like. Works like a charm for him, and the lbs shed off. My problem is that other than Stuffed Peppers and Liver and ONions, there are no foods I dislike. I like everything.

At any rate, point ofthis post- What foods can you not tolerate?

    I find even the smell, nay, the SIGHT, of string beans to be utterly repulsive. Abomination!

    An old but excellent book: “The Doctor’s Quick Weight Loss Diet.”

    It has great, simple background information. Clear, concise, practical tips along with what they do and why they’re effective.

    If most of the info is adopted, it’s sane, comfortable and workable the kind of thing you can live with over the long term.

    It’s worth seeking out.

    Hmmm. Fried scorpion comes to mind. And some of the other dishes here.

    Brussel sprouts and beef liver. But I would probably eat them if I were hungry enough.

    Anything Thai (can’t do peanuts. Period) and Brussels sprouts. Don’t do sweet potatoes, either.

    Grilled liver & onions? Yum!

    Beets… I don’t like anything about them – The way they look their smell, or most importantly their taste.

    how about the way they mess with your digestion? You’ll always know if you ate beets yesterday!

    Anything with mayonnaise, unless it’s used as an egg/oil substitute in baking. I’ve had cakes made with it that were just fine. Other than that, I agree with Calvin that it’s “White Death.”

    And cold soups, too. That’s just wrong.

    Beets & Brussel Sprouts. Everything else is fair game.

    Turkey breast. Not the deli stuff, but the cottonball-dry stuff that 99% of turkey breast will turn out to be when baked. Simply foul (heh).

    Gosh, I love most of the stuff y’all listed. Brussel Sprouts… mmmmm.

    Liver does make me a little queasy. I guess gizzards are pretty gross. And I really don’t like hard boiled eggs… I guess my cat’s canned food makes me heave sometimes, ‘specially if I have a little hangover on. But until I’m living on social security, I won’t have to worry about eating that.

    Eggplant. Its texture is like snot. Which is a little strange, because I don’t mind raw tomatoes at all. But eggplant is disgusting.

    DJ- You aren’t cooking your turkeys right, then. The key to moist breasts is to bake the turkey upside down for half the cooking time.

    Seriously, after the nasty experience of taking a slew of bones in my tongue and cheeks with my first taste of fish as a kid, I can’t stand the stuff today: no kind of sea food. Y’all may have mine any time.
