My friend is making thesee things
ttp://www.straightupfood.com/blog/2010/05/04/quinoa-cornbread/
http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2008/08/chili-mac.html
http://foodsforlonglife.blogspot.com/2011/09/vegan-sugar-free-gluten-free-palisades.html

that call for sugar/stevia, but I dont want to use either ingredient, what to use? honey?
vinegar?

Honey is probably your best bet.  It seem to have some very good properties that they haven't totally figured out yet.

It may help with colitis:

"Could Honey Have a Place in Colitis Therapy? Effects of Honey, Prednisolone, and Disulfiram on Inflammation, Nitric Oxide, and Free Radical Formation"

It may have antiinflammatory wound healting abilities:
"Honey: A Potent Agent for Wound Healing?"
http://journals.lww.com/jwocnonline/Abstract/2002/11000/Honey__A_Potent_Agent_for_Wound_Healing_.8

This list go on and on, but, as a natural food, we should not be surprised that it has many excellent properties.

That said, a little fructose, 25-50 grams per day, is probably okay as well...

doesnt that amount change based on the body?
like if you are doing doing 30mins of walking or hours of low cardio vs sitting on your butt watching tv

I also think how calories are eaten and where they go/what they do, is dependent on bodyfat percentage and what you have done recently(lifted weights vs cardio vs doing nothing)

Yes.  Good points.  Or at least I saw a study or two where the authors actually thought that extra fructose for athletes may actually be a good thing.  And you are a heavy exerciser right now, so that may apply to you.  I'm not sure they really know all the details on that though...

I would put this in the "what does Peak do?" thread but I cant find it

Peak, when you go out to eat, where do you go?   I used to love the places that had great bread,olive garden, pasta house,  etc
but now every place seems to be full of exotoxins.transfats or  tap water((I drink distilled)

I should spend the money I save on eating at home on a maid, but Im too frugal do that....but I am healthier eating at home

I try not to do this too often but have noticed that, if I don't have too many calories, I can still eat out once per day or eat someone's cooking once per day, and still remind under 15% total fat.  So that's how I do it:  I will eat but a relatively few calories.  Not everyone may be satisfied with that philosophy though...

how do you know the calories or fat?
I wasnt looking so much for dietary parameters, although useful, I was looking for concrete examples of where you go

I ask because you are the example for most of us her on PTest.com;
you dont eat meat, dont eat a lot/any processed carbs, so I have asked before what you eat and you gave me the vague, "wife's cooking", Im just looking for concrete things I can also do to emulate you!

We usually eat ethnic as we both LOVE ethnic food.  Indian, Mexican, Thai, Viatnamese.  My wife and I actually share a plate almost always.  So, if there's 600 calories on the plate, obviously I'll get 300 and not overshoot my fat content goals.  But that's why I didn't give specific examples, because I'm all over the map on that one.

As far as my wife's cooking, she is a vicious, no holds barred Mediterranean master chef.  Her stuff is good, so I have to resist not eating too much of it and it ain't easy!

Milk
my parents still drink it, I thought milk wasnt worth drinking?
is that wrong?

I tried to search this forum, but how to only search topic titles eludes me

nevermind I saw this
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Milk_Dangers

with my mom having estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer+ cancer, she needs to avoid estrogen and takes aromatase inhibitor, I think she needs to stop drinking milk
Estrogens and Cancer.  You mama weaned you off of breast milk a long time ago and for good reason:  her breast milk is chock full of estrogens. Well, so is cow's milk and researchers have long noted that many types of hormone-related cancers, such as breast, testicular and prostate, are significantly higher in populations with high levels of milk and dairy consumption. [2]

One of the issues that affects estrogen levels in milk is the cow's stage of pregnancy. [8] Perhaps regulation can help one day with this issue, but in the meantime, a glass of milk may give you a lot more than you bargained for.  Again, isn't it ironic that two favorite beverages for men, milk and beer, are under fire for their estrogen-enhancing properties?

No.  I am dogmatically and publicly stating that McDonalds is not ethnic.

I need to date a cook.

I really think this would help you a lot. 

But I would try to hang out at the deli at Whole Foods or Sprouts to meet your dream chef instead of the double doors to a kitchen at a Bistro...

I have admitted openly that I am a choco-ovo-vegetarian:

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/About

However, I do not eat a lot of cheese nor milk.  Like you, I'm not a big fan of casein.

I also currently have whey every day and will continue to do so until I get those 18 inch biceps I've been building for the past 20 years.

what is the name brand of the whey you use?
I am also in the process of enlarging my biceps to a larger size!

Im sticking to a low fat diet, is popcorn part of that diet
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Ornish_Diet

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Popcorn_Benefits

I make my popcorn(which is not the organic kernals,  because no one at the health store could explain why "organic" kernals were different than the cheap stufff I  bought
but I use an air popper
no oils, no salt, no nothing
I have about 4-5 cups a night
although this site says it has no fat, I thought airpopped popcorn had some?
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/snacks/5659/2


on FB, one of my friends said they were making popcorn  and some one said
Moron: Pop it conventionally, either in the microwave or on stovetop, using canola oil (has low fat content). Add salt to taste after popping. Butter not required, as the popcorn will feel slightly oily from the canola. Tastes good. Goes best with plenty of adult beverage of your choice.
5 hours ago · Like

Watchntv: Use an air popper and I'd skip the canola oil While the Omega-6 oils are essential for good health, Americans have been shown to be consuming 50X the amount necessary for good health. These excess bad oils have been shown to increase inflammation, increase cancer development and growth, and increase the incidence of degenerative brain diseases. http://www.newportnutritionals.com/Nutrition-guide.html
