    I want my dairy
    cindigal posted:
    I don't know about all these new diets that tell you to omit dairy. It's not I have alot of dairy. I have drinking skim milk for the longest time. I dont eat ice cream or I might have low fat cheese. I might have Greek yogurt with some fruit from time to time but I don't think I can give up my dairy. I don't know the names of the diets I read about restricting dairy. I try to incorporate alot protein, I cook boneless skinless chicken whenever I can, baked, not fried. I like to cook vegetables steamed or in the oven. I like beans, so that is good for protein. I am trying to cut out alot carbs. I stopped buying cereal because of the carb content. I stopped eating past because of the carbs. I heard that even you eat whole wheat pasta, it's as bad as regular pasta. I read about how wheat and wheat products are terrible but I have buying wheat bread for years.

    Now, I stopped buying wheat bread. But I did hear that rye bread is better than wheat bread, so I am considering that, I am going to the gym here at the apartments. Do the elliptical for about 25 minute and then go to weight resistance machines for the arms. I am there for about 45 min to 1 hour. What else can I do. I watch Dr. Oz occasionally and he's alway promoting what to eat, what not to eat. He has guests that talked about food. He had a some guy, some health guru that says.,..."dont drink skim milk, whole milk is better". What the heck, I don't want the extra calories or fat. I want my skim milk. Every day I see new diet or foods that we should know. Has anyone seen on tv of some kind of green juice that people are drinking to lose weight. Well, Im sorry, I will not do any green smoothies with kale or this other thing I dont recall......bleegh.
