Good stuff from Gary as usual.

Keep all the bad crap in your diet to a LOW amount and enjoy a better life.

Its funny how people can't be inconvenienced to actually make decent meals these days or workout. Its called time management. Learn it people. And learn about going back to the basics with a good diet.

Most def. I don't know how people eat some of that stuff. Everybody's too "busy" to pack or prepare food. But not too busy to get to the bar or play video games for 6 hours in the evening. This might sound funny, but I enjoy gardening! Talk about food prep, growing your own is awesome! You know what you're eating and you have an overall greater respect for it. Plus, it makes you take the time out of your busy life to do some work outdoors that used to be imperative to our survival. Now, you can just stop at 7-11 and grab some doritos and a slim jim and boom, theres lunch. Not for me.

If I could just live as a hunter/ gatherer and grow my own food, I'd be the happiest guy around. Thats been like a dream of mine, to get outdoors with my family and spend quality time together growing and nurturing our food and ourselves. kind of like a mini farm or a homestead. Sounds funny but thats what I want to do someday. Then I will never eat anything in a wrapper ever again!!!

I was reading the article and at first I disagreed with it but he brings up some extremely good points. I don't know if I agree with him but it's enough to give me second thoughts about the sweets.

Just curious but where in that article does it actually demonstrate that sugar/fructose/HFCS is a poison?

Most man-made substances are mostly not good for you, but I guess I wouldn't really call them "poisons". Just poor choices for convinience and sake of cost effectiveness. Oh screw it, yeah pretty much people making money off of killing people. There, it is said.

I have my days of eating some unhealthy things myself, but come on, some people LIVE off of the crap and just look at them. No thanks, I'll take my crap in moderation please.

Corn is a STAPLE of EVERYTHING made these days, just like oil. Just look at livestock. They get fed mostly corn and there digestive systems are made for GRASS. WTF? Cows are herbivores for god's sake.

I'm getting on a rant here, but people need to open their eyes and see the BS.

End rant.
