I need your advice, Atheist Nexus Food Members. 

My son is a physically active, nutritionally conscious person and he recommends GUNDRY MD LECTIN SHIELD.

His wife, Mindy, is a personal trainer and works with or for the Denver Athletic Club and has her private clients. She recommends  GUNDRY MD LECTIN SHIELD.

I am skeptical. What say you?

I eat what my innards allow me to eat, & if its not on the permissible lists, then tough.

I am however making adjustments if I do have to do a kidney diet......which seems quite likely now.

Appreciate the comments (as always). One of the "dumb recommendations" was "no alcohol", not even a glass of wine--nary a drop. And no cheese (or crackers or nuts) to go with it? Geez Louise. No dark chocolate?

However, the book was meant for those people suffering from debilitating health issues. I think that excludes most of us--thankfully (not "thank god").

we make our own rules, according to info, common sense and our feelings about food.

I think at a certain age, many of us say to hell with the food rules.

My doctor did the usual blood work on me and it all came back good. Well, sort of. I'm sure they did a full smack as I also have a bad liver. Even the liver enzymes were looking good, they said, but they didn't understand my high triglycerides. 

I said to the nurse, "let me explain that to you. I'm a creature of habit and I take your meds but eat and drink whatever I want to."

Eat what you like as long as the body allows it, & to hell with the goods, bads, or otherwises. If bp & weight aren't an issue, don't worry about it. If it ain't broke.....well you know.

I like that rant, Randy.

Good for you Patricia, although the more I read about the effects of salt (like on BP), the less I think it's so bad.

And while I'm here, permit me to do some ranting and raving.

It starts with reading a book titled It Starts With Food (by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig). (This is not a book review.)

Here's the deal. The authors are promoting how to live a healthier life by a) eating the "right" foods, and, b) avoiding the "wrong" foods.  Wrongs are sugar, grains, dairy, legumes. Fill up with vegetables, fruits, meats.

Here's my beef. I'm nearly 75 years old, have no major health issues, feel good, etc. I regularly eat all the "wrongs". But I do eat a whopping amount of "rights". According to the book, I'd be a lot better off eliminating the bad guys. Well, if I'm so healthy, WHY should I? I like eating those "enemies". I love desserts! (And, by the way, I weight less than 130 lbs at 5'7+", so I'm not fat.)

I'm wondering if I have to choose between continuing to eat the foods I like and live to 95, or cut out the baddies and live to 100. Or does it really matter? At the moment, I'm opting for choice #1. As they say, life is too short. Enjoy the moment.

End of rant.
