Twix: To much fat and un-healthy, seems to taste good to some people but the others that don't seem to like it are better off without it because it could mess up your insides.

I exited the Food Myths in 2006. I only use butter, lard (which I make myself), olive oil and coconut oil for fats. I buy pasture fed, free range beef and free range pork. I drink Raw Milk. I eat plenty of eggs. I sprout my wheat, grind it into flour and have some kind of bread product with every meal. (Favorite breakfast is large glass of milk and big slab of bread slathered in butter and garnished with raw, unfiltered honey..........)
I have lost over 60 lbs (nope, my exercise routine didn't change!), and I am healthier now than when I was 20.......
If a food or way to prepare it was available to my grandparents, I'm in - if not, then I'll probably say, "No Thanks!"

Oatmeal is fattening. I've been told that Oatmeal is nutritious and keeps you regular but that it will creep up on you adding extra pounds FAST.

As I've matured, I find that I cannot digest beef like I used to. It gives me terrible heartburn, as opposed to eating the same quanity of chicken, fish or pork. It's as if my body has simply lost the ability to break it down sufficiently.

I like peanut butter so its one of the so-called "no no" foods that I eat regularly. I like popcorn too, but unfortunately I like the dripping with butter variety and its hard for me to regularly eat the "diet" kind.

When trying to lose weight, I was told to avoid "white" foods. Potatoes are in that category. Finding out that the oil is a good accompaniment I will feel good about using olive oil butter substitutes on my potatoes. I love baked potatoes.I scrub them well, poke with a fork, rub with butter and bake 400 for as long as it takes, usually 45 minutes. They are crusty and chewy on the outside, and fluffy on the inside. Not your microwave potato which is simply steamed. Mrs Tierney.

Lots - but gave up believing all the hype a long time ago! You see... my Dad, who had a great amount of willpower, gave up all the foods he loved - among them, scrambled eggs, and an occasional piece of cheesecake, all because his doctor said it was "good" for him. At the time, all the "myths" had eggs relegated to the "bad - flavor of the month" list, along with coffee. Butter, had been deemed "bad" too, and replaced with "margarine". Now, they're all back on the "good" list, and we know butter is better than margarine. Too late for my Dad - he ended up dying at the relatively early age of 68! Then, after he died, all the news switched - all of a sudden, eggs were okay for you. My grandmother, on the other hand, lived into her 90's and ate everything - butter, gravies, cake - but also veggies, meat & potatoes. Her key - balance and moderation. You can have the things you love, just not ALL the time. Eat sensibly, cut back on sugar & salt, and get back to "regular" portions. We've all gotten into this "super size" mentality, which I think has stoked a feeling of not feeling "full" unless we have tons of food. We just eat & eat & eat until the food is gone - not until we actually feel full. Even enough of a good thing can be bad for you!
