Yeah, I get that most people don't value training like I do, although I'm confident that everyone wants or needs to be healthier, especially in today's society. The foods we eat are not of the same quality that our grandparents and great grandparents grew up with, hence the meteoric rise in obesity and it's associated diseases in the US. Has anyone seen the documentary, "Ingredients" on Netflix? Well worth watching, especially now that the government is involved in the foods we consume.

SpeedRacerLFF wrote:What is processed pap?
The processed pap that lines supermarket shelves is plants several steps removed, which is why it provides little nourishment at all. To protect your brain you should know how closely it is linked with shoots, roots, fruits, and leaves.

I very seldom to never eat McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell and all those junk food places that feed us greasy fat and sodium by the truck loads unless I'm on vacation and then I'm extremely selective. I do eat at Subway sometimes. McDonalds tends to serve products known to cause cancer in the state of California and they have posted signs about it, too. I rarely eat candy, though I do like peanut m&m's and I sometimes drink a diet soda pop. I'm currently at about 11-12% body fat and very active.
SpeedRacerLFF wrote:Honestly from my POV, something is going to kill you. There have been predictions that the person who will live to 150 yrs/old has been born. Sure we see sickness and disease, sure we see obesity. But our mortality rate is so low that the weak people make it through to adulthood. 150 years ago that was just not the case. We talk about our grandfathers food being healthier, but we forget they had some rough times where they ate tons of moldy food to prevent starvation. How much food gets pitched on a daily basis?
While I agree we have a stewardship over our bodies, moderation is key. Going overboard on anything, and moving our focus too much on something that reduces our ability to serve our fellow men is in violation of good, better, best. We will be more concerned on service at the end of the day, than if we had one too many cheeseburgers I promise. Of course if we put ourselves in an early grave, we will have some serious regret as well.
So exercise, but in moderation. Eat healthy, but not to the point that it consumes all of your time to ensure you have strained every last chemical from your diet. Have desert or sweets from time to time, especially with friends over good conversation.
Lastly, ensure your spirit is well fed, and is clean. This will count most of all.
A Word of Wisdom, for the benefit of the council of high priests, assembled in Kirtland, and the church, and also the saints in Zion—
To be sent greeting; not by commandment or constraint, but by revelation and the word of wisdom, showing forth the order and will of God in the temporal salvation of all saints in the last days—
Given for a principle with promise, adapted to the capacity of the weak and the weakest of all saints, who are or can be called saints.
Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of evils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation—

Ideas for getting rid of addiction to 'refined white sugar'?

Where can I get some of that bacon grease?

So far, drinking lots of water helps. Keeping away from milk, bread. tomato, cheese... except for ricotta.
