Title: I didn't know eating better could make me feel so much better.
Post by: Gwyn on August 16, 2005, 01:45:18 am
The healthy feeling I'm getting lately is way, way better than any feeling that a huge greesy burger and fries could ever give me. Sure I miss some stuff, but that's what cheat days are for :p. I'm one step closer to lowering my f-ed up cholesterol, whoo.

YAY!

I know, I totally started eating more salads again, and yeah, since starting to actually, cook my dinners and stuff, so much better.

Honestly, I load my salads up with other veggies, occasional cut up ham or turkey, cottage cheese (because no decent Wisconsinite has anything without cheese involved, we have a Cheese soup, for the love), and raisins.

I've been doing the healthy thing for awhile. Haven't drank pop/soda since 1996 and still love the effects that it had when I stopped.

Yeah, I too ditched soda and carbonated/artifical beverages for the most part. I originally tried to go a full month without one, and it was easy and I felt better, so I really just don't drink 'em at all anymore unless I _really_ crave one... Or if I need something to mix with my rum. :-) I do prefer orange juice for the latter though.

As for feel-good food. I don't like "healthy" food so much as just "good" food. That is, a steak, baked potato, and a salad are so many times better than a burger or taco. Only drawback to leaving home... I miss home cooking.

God yes . . . *sigh* . . . Miss it super bad. My mom is always like, let's go out, and all I can think is, 'Nooooo, just make some twice baked potatoes and pork tenderloin and salad!'

hehe...I suppose I'm lucky that I'm younger and still live with my parents, I'd probably make even healthy food bad for you XD

But yeah nothing beats home cooking, even if it's junk food sometimes (my mom makes some AWESOME french fries, must learn her secrets >>) at least it's better than that greasy stuff they call "food" in places like mcdonalds.

to quote a geography class:

Teacher: "Geographers have to know how to make choices that will appease customers. For example, they wouldn't put a McDonald's beside a sewer."
*silence*
Classmate: "...what's the difference?"

ahh, I miss cheese soup now.  But I totally love eating healthier.  I moved out here from WI and have lost 20 lbs just by making the changes in cultural eating.  more fish, less greasy other stuff.

I think that living with my parents have contributed to my girlish (bah!)  figure. *smirks* Seriously, I have no doubt that when I leave home I'll lose pounds easily. It's all those homecooked meals and ethnic Filipino foods. *mouth waters*

I'll just check what's cooking downstairs...*lurks into the kitchen*
