Thread: Eggs a substitute for Meat and beans?

    Default Eggs a substitute for Meat and beans?

    http://www.canal2tv.com/Noticias/vid...io%20Huevo.wmv

    This video report talks about how eggs are becoming the next best thing to eating Beans and Meat.

    Eggs may have gone up in price themselves but they do not cost as much as a pound of meat or chicken. The video interviews a handful of people that are talking about all the ways you can prepare an egg. A few mention the cholesterol from an egg, but the cholesterol seems to be less of an issue to getting your daily intake of protien.

    Soon there will be a video declaring dirt the next best thing to meat, it is cheap & readily available, plus none of the cholesterol issues.

    I heard the FSLN was going to Nationalize dirt, and redistribute it to the FSLN party members!

    About 50 grams (roughly 2 ounces). A little more if you work out.

    And yes, most usanos get far too much, but it tastes better than lettuce, so there you go.

    One of the questions patients ask on almost every office visit is, "what can I eat?" It may be to loose weight, control their diabetes, or just to look better. There is a simple rule I pass along.

    Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

    The modern food industry has pervereted the idea of nutrition into grams of this, and milligrams of that, but that's not really how the body works. We don't really have any idea what the ideal intake is for any given substance. Your grandmother knew more about nutrition than most doctors today. What was true then is true today.

    Eat food, as in eat things that you recognize. If you can't tell what something is made out of without reading the ingredients list, or if you can't pronounce something on that list, it's not really food.

    Not too much. There's a reason why there are so many commercials on TV after 8 p.m. for indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux disease, constipation, etc. They know that's the hour when your body starts to hurt from the crap you ingested at dinner. If you had too much, that just compounds the problem. 3 meals a day is not really a healthy way to eat either. You're much better off using the system JPJW mentioned (breakfast, lunch, and grog for dinner), or divide your meals up in to 5-6 smaller meals per day.

    Mostly plants. I'm as much a carnivore as anyone, but the fact is our bodies were not made to digest so much meat. And milk is just beef in another form, so you don't get a pass for yogurt.

    The system I teach my diabetic patients (there are more and more every year) is to imagine your plate as one of those styrofoam picnic plates with the dividers. The big section that makes up half the plate, should be plants. Crunchy, not overcooked plants that still look like plants. One of the little sections that make up a quarter of the plate is for your starchy carbohydrate stuff; potatoes, rice, plantains, etc. The other little quarter section is for your meat, not overcooked and never fried. It's a simple rule of thumb that applies to everyone, not just diabetics. I admit, I'm pretty bad at following it myself, but it's about what your body was built to handle.

    I'm impressed that there are so many species that can survive by eating only one food item 90% of the time. I figure, like Doc says, eat "real food" that tastes good. There's a reason things taste good to us. If Brussels Sprouts taste like swamp gas to you, don't eat the stupid things.

    Is man the only species that consumes the glandular secretions of other mammals? Milk, to be exact?

    Yes, unless you count the flies that hang around the milking stalls.

    It can be argued that milk has saved millions of lives over the centuries. The gene that allows us to digest milk is not universal nor has it always been with us. It is a clear survival advantage during a drought to be able to hydrate on milk, while those with lactose intolerance (i.e., an absence of the gene) would get diarrhea and die. Also, before refrigeration, a lactating cow was a good way to store your fat and protein supplement drink.

    Be that as it may, I'm a firm believer in the rule established by Dr. Spock (the pediatrician, not the Star Trek guy). "Cow's milk is for baby cows." It was created for a specific purpose; to rapidly turn a 100 pound calf into a 1 ton cow. While I enjoy cheese with my food, and cream in my coffee, I don't recommend anyone drink it whole.

    Are we not also the only species (other than flies) that consume milk past infancy?

    I'm a milk drinker and cheese lover, in moderation of course, but it does seem odd that we consume it at all.

    Well, Eskimos traditionally nurse all the way to adolescence (thought that practice is disappearing faster than the polar bears).

    Other than that, no. We're the only mammals that drink milk past infancy. We're also the only mammals that are toatlly dependent on our parents for several years.

    We're unique in many respects.

    That reminds me of a Monty Python saying.

    Maybe we could employ all those LI people and feed them lots of mammal glandular secretions then collect the ensuing gases for running generators! I bet the ratio of energy in vs energy out would be better than with corn ethanol!
