.Kelli and others,
Saying that I'm a health nut is an understatement. You should see all the supplements I take in a day. Each day I take, 12-15 capsules/grams of fish oil. 2-3 capsules of the following: Saw Palmetto. Green Tea. Pumpkin seed extract. Grape seed extract. Pomegranate extract. Magnesium. Tea Tree oil. Peppermint oil. Kelp (for iodine), a liquid multivitamin mixture and then I add things here and there to see how it affects me.
As far as my diet, I don't drink soft drinks ever (okay, like maybe 3-5 times in the last 10 years). I don't eat shell fish or unclean meat (pork, catfish, shrimp). I stay away from pasta. I eat a lot of salads.
So anyway I think it can be said that I'm a health nut. I am also a germaphobe. I do not touch door knobs unless it can't be helped. In public bathrooms (which I HATE) I use a paper towel to grab the door knob (I honestly don't know why everyone doesn't do that). Shoes are not allowed to be worn in my house.
So there. I have my quirks. So to .kelli I offer this tidbit. Rely on antioxidants. If you're afraid of toxins in food and other things, and there is certainly some reason for concern in certain situations, make sure you get a lot of antioxidants to clean up and absorb the toxins. That's the job of antioxidants. Things that also help are olive leaf extract and oregano oil. That way maybe you'll feel like you have some back up and don't have to worry quite as much.
But I certainly understand wanting to take care of your body since the Bible tells us to treat our bodies like the temple of God and to honor Him with them.
You and my wife...LOL
I am exactly the opposite. It drives her nuts. I eat whatever I want and as much as I can hold. Saturated fats always are a plus. I eat for calorie denseness....you know like salami, nuts and cheeses...if it has pork fat or butter it is always good. Potatoe chips are my favorite vegetable accompianment to any meal. (eating some now)
The problem with all this is...I am skinny. Not overly skinny but trim. I also have muscle tone and definition. I only have had one cold over a two year period of time. My wife isn't so fortunate. and she does like you do.
I work construction with all kinds of germs and bacterias and chemical pollutants everywhere...Our only bathroom is usually a port a potty...always needing service.
she took all kinds of fruits and vegetables for lunch today...I am eating potatoe chips and pasta with chicken, procuttio, and alfredo sauce. (some tortelinis too)
Drinking koolaide to wash it down (outta sodas at the moment...but I did have some chocolate milk with it yesterday)
When working I must eat somewhere to the tune of 2500 to 3500 calories a day to maintain my weight. And that is always annoying. fish isn't usually on my diet but shrimp and crab always are.
My wife hates the diet I keep...and must eat. She tries to consume only around 800 to 1200 calories a day. Obviously there is a meal issue around our house during dinner. She likes fish...I eat it but consider it a waste of time unless it is fried. Beurre blanc though is her newest fancy...she loves the stuff but won't eat it any more.
Bacon is the stuff of breakfast...at least a pound...toast, juice (110-220) Pancakes, syrup and some chocolate donuts start my day...for her a cantelope slice and water.
One of them things. Teasing her is only going to aleinate her and distance her from you...just love .kelli. If she starts looking ill from malnutrition...then worry. Until then leave her alone.
