it is hard to be healthy,
my sister dropped out of medical school because she hated the system, shes a lawyer now.

I splurged last night and at 3 donuts from Krispy Kreme...yes I was foolish]



they have the transfats

I thought I was being smart, at QT, I dont use Plastic cups, I use styrofoam,  to avoid BPA
but it's in them as well

so what can I use?

Paper cups?, no
Styrofoam cups?no(maybe?)

Ive started to use a PLastic bpa free cup for a while, till I read
BPA, a compound that mimics estrogen, which is found in many plastics , isn't the only issue in plastic products. A report from Georgetown University, PlastiPure, and CertiChem (a chemical testing company) found that even BPA-free plastics have estrogenic activity.

I would really try to avoid BPA - there are just too many studies now.  I personally avoid receipts and canned goods and that probably gets rid of 80% of my exposure.  I drink out of plastic myself, simply because of convenience, but ideally I'd carry around a glass or stainless container.  But sometimes we have to make compromises.

I don't know of any issue with styrofoam.  Styrene is nasty stuff, but I've never seen a report that there is significant styrene in styrofoam cups.  Let me know if you find something...

I hate to tell you that I laughed at the Krispy Kreams.  Just forgive yourself and go on.  You'll find that after awhile you'll actually lose a lot of your cravings for stuff like that.  Pretty soon it starts to taste kind of nauseating.  But imo it never really goes away completely, so you've just got to be as disciplined as you can be...

the reason I felt like I did...and I tried to post the ad-copy that says  NO TRANSFATS*on the post I made

*per serving

I know what that per serving BS means, it means there are transfats...but I was too excited/too tired to notice the * in the ad-copy, sadly I've done the same thing in the past at the grocery store where I dont notice the* and dont read the ingredients
When I realize what I've done, I think to myself, "wtf is wrong with me?"
then I remember brain injury,
then I laugh at my lame excuse and dont make the mistake again

On February 19, 2007, Krispy Kreme began selling the Whole Wheat Glazed doughnut in an attempt to appeal to the health conscious. The doughnut has 83.736 kJ (20 kilocalories in most countries, or 20 Calories in the US) fewer than the original glazed (754 kJ vs. 837 kJ) and contains more fiber (2 grams vs. 0.5 grams). As of January 2008, the trans fat content of all Krispy Kreme doughnuts was reduced to 0.5 of a gram or less. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in its guidelines, allows companies to round down to 0 g in its nutrition facts label even if the food contains as much as 0.5 of a gram per serving. Krispy Kreme benefited from this regulatory rule in its subsequent advertising campaign, touting its doughnuts as "trans fat free" and having "0 grams trans fat!".[2]

Krispy Kreme drops trans fats

By Elizabeth Lee | Monday, January 7, 2008, 12:31 PM

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Krispy Kreme announced Monday that it has dropped trans fats from its menu. That means its doughnuts and other foods and beverages contain less than a half-gram of trans fats.

But the original glazed doughnut is still a 200-calorie indulgence of white flour, sugar and fat, deep-fried in a blend of vegetable oil and palm oil that's higher in saturated fats than the previous formula.

The bottom line: An original glazed doughnut still contains 200 calories and 12 grams of total fat. It now has 6 grams of bad fats (all saturated) rather than the 7 grams of saturated and trans fats that it had before.

The doughnut hounds in the newsroom didn't notice any change in taste, although, of course, they complained that they were sampling cold doughnuts instead of hot ones. (It's the first formula change for the original glazed since the '80s.)

Does removing trans fats from Krispy Kreme doughnuts affect whether you'll eat them? How about in other restaurant foods, like French fries?


WhY does .5g/serving mean 0?   why is this allowed?  is there any question why americans/people are all becoming fatties?
transfats are horrible, so why are they legal? why does the FDA have new math that says, .5=0
if I got 89.5% in a class, that gets rounded UP to 90%,
Whats the money trail say?
who is getting rich by making americans get fat, its not in the best interest for americans to allow transfats to be legal, so who's getting paid?

The FDA sometimes watches out for us consumers.  However, they are very understaffed and much too overly cautious. 

I don't know why - one can speculate that it is political - but I'm not so sure that explains everything.  Right now physicians are very cautious as well.  How many physicians really believe that trans fats are that bad?  The whole community - docs/FDA/big pharma - they're just behind the 8 ball.

Eventually, they'll catch up. This is kind of an interesting scenario, where an increasingly educated public along with the  alternative, anti-aging, preventative, and naturopathic communities are dragging the corporations and medical schools along and forcing them to change.

It's just a matter of time imo...

I dont see anything other than lies in what th FDA is doing, Im not saying it's debatable about transfat I am stating facts, that .5 is mathematically rounded to 1 and not to 0
so the FDA is lying
I have to read the ingredients to determine if there are transfats?  and since when does anyone abide how  much is 1 serving?
Just tell me how much is in the whole box/container, and let me figure out the rest

because they are being paid off seems very logical
being understaffed etc, isnt a valid reason for their illogical practices

http://www.leekemp.com/athletenutrition/2011/08/the-trans-fat-scam-continues-as-americans-fall-for-the-fda-lie/
If you think the Government is here to protect us… Think again! Just take a look at this one example of how the FDA, through allowing deceptive practices to go on, is destroying our nation’s health and lining “Big Pharma’s” pockets.

NPR’s (National Public Radio) reported one deceptive and dishonest practice by food manufacturers, affectionately called the “trans fat loophole”, that is 100% approved and allowed by the FDA.  Food manufacturers take this lack of concern from the FDA and they “run with it”.

The FDA allows  food manufacturers to promote any product as having “ZERO TRANS FATS” if the product contains less than 0.5 percent of trans fat per serving. When it comes to fat, trans fat is considered to be the worst type of fat. Unlike other fats, trans fat — also called trans-fatty acids — both raises your “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lowers your “good” (HDL) cholesterol.

FDA isnt on my side about BPA, so why trust them about transfats?


http://www.thedailygreen.com/environmental-news/latest/bisphenol-a-47081601
digg

The Food and Drug Administration, true to form, has sided with the chemical industry and against independent scientists in determining the safety of Bisphenol-A, an ingredient in some plastics and in the lining of plastic cans.

It released a draft assessment, declaring the controversial chemical safe, Friday, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, which has led the major media coverage of that and other chemicals, and the apparent bias the FDA has shown for industry studies that often are not peer-reviewed and published in scientific literature.

what are your thoughts about Diindolylmethane?(DIM)

I get mine from
http://www.bioresponse.com/Return-Policy.asp

and I dont know if it's any good to get or anything about its efficacy other than what they say
I do try to get in broccoli into my diet, but 100mg of DIM is hard to get from the actual veggie

When you start taking that much of a supplement, you're starting to essentially take a pharmaceutical.  Is it safe to take Arimedex long term?  That's a hard question to answer and also depends somewhat on the situation...

I didnt even know it was effective, let alone a pharmaceutical.
I think till I get my belly fat down, as Im doing, or get my test. numbers up, I will take 200mg a day,  I know when Im lean, I have no erection issues, I have no idea what my T-levels are lean. but I know I have issues now and being fat is a large chunk of them

any take on 7-Keto-DHEA, I cant find you address it, I see you address DHEA, but7-Keto-DHEA is different
7-keto-DHEA is a by-product of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a chemical that is formed in the body. DHEA is a "parent hormone" produced by glands near the kidneys. But unlike DHEA, 7-keto-DHEA is not converted to steroid hormones such as androgen and estrogen. Taking 7-keto-DHEA by mouth or applying it to the skin does not increase the level of steroid hormones in the blood.

People take 7-keto-DHEA to speed up the metabolism and heat production to promote weight loss. 7-keto-DHEA is also used to improve lean body mass and build muscle, increase the activity of the thyroid gland, boost the immune system, enhance memory, and slow aging.

How does it work?

7-keto-DHEA might promote weight loss by speeding up the body's metabolism.
