Does the "Big Fat Surprise Book" contain information similar to Good Calories, Bad Calories, and Why We Get Fat, both by Gary Taubes?  Mainly that "low fat" foods are a scam, and it's the simple carbohydrates that we eat that are the killers?  (Complex carbs are another story.)

I've lost 40+ lbs since I started eating things like bacon and eggs, and multi-grain breads again. (2+ years ago.)  I rarely feel hungry anymore, and I don't feel like I'm depriving myself of anything.  AND, BIG deal, my blood glucose has stabilized so that I don't need to take an insulin booster anymore, either.  YAYYYYY!

I think I sampled just about everything last night when I ate at a Chinese buffet restaurant (called "Everything OK"). After I read that "Big Fat Surprise" book, I didn't have the guilt of eating all that "bad food" that usually accompanies eating out. However, I'm eating in moderation today--even skipped breakfast. Vegetable soup tonight, Greek style (I looked up an internet recipe).

Spud, perfect additions to the salad. My cousin's wife must weigh 300 pounds. Every day a recipe comes from her that is just dripping with icing or heavy sauces or deep fried treasures. I decided that when I receive one of her recipes I am going to send her a photo and recipe of one of my favorites, even if I have to use a stock photo.

Chris, I know what you mean about accumulating teaching material. I had boxes and boxes that I kept for a couple of years after I retired and then sent them to the dump. 

It sounds as though you love teaching as much as I did. Being a teacher with a strong commitment to students does take its toll. I enjoy reading about your experiences ... kind of like being with you as you impart information and skills that will make differences in their lives.

I would add some garbanzo beans to Joan's salad, and maybe some bacon bits.

Earthquakes and tunnels is a scary combination for me too, Joan. But here in the mud it's reasonably safe.

And thanks, I'm fine today. My workload is still too heavy, so I expect the next migraine attack on Thursday, because that's my day off. And if the weekend is very busy, another one on Monday. Losing all that time makes me only work harder on the other days.... but I try to skip corners and slow down. Next week I get a new group to teach! I'm looking forward to that, and it won't be very busy, because by now I have a big stack of teaching material ready.

Chris, how are you feeling? Did the chili help with ending the migraine?

I still have claustrophobia about tunnels, especially the ones that go under water. What if the earth shakes while I am down in that tunnel/grave? I hope the engineers planned for that. Especially in Korea. That is a shaky part of the Earth.

Joan, that salad looks good.  I would add a little raspberry vinaigrette and I'm good to go.

Hey, yesterday I pulled out of an old snow drift some buried collard greens. Boiled with olive oil and vinegar, they were delicious!

Be sure to read my recent blog on fat.

With so many of these fat and sugar pictures, I offer up a rebuttal
