10 posts in this topic

I realy cant understand some people behaviour ...i was with a friend,we were eating together(i had my gluten free food wille she was eating a big mac hamburger cheesburger..i didnt understand very well what was it but it had such an awfull smell)She offered me forgetting i can't eat it ...the following dialogue took place

Me - Shall i open the window because of the smell?

Her - Yes ...is it smelly?

Me - Yes very much .

Her- Well ...i know its a garbage but i realy love it i could never stop eating it

Isn't it weird that she called her food garbage but she could never stop eating it??? This is crazy...realy i mean ..o.k maybe someone doesnt know that the food is unhealthy....but what kind of sane person whould know that a food is garbage and whould continioue eating it??? I know i dont have the right to judge anyone ...i mean if someone wants to eat stinky smelly full of chemicals products its his own right but...HEY!!! Why do we have the brain??? If you know something is unhealy and you eat it beaucse you cant stop ...well that means that you became addictid to it..and thats one more reason to stop eating it....Does anyone hear about addiction to fruits or to vegetables or to meat??? Fast food,junk food is not food..it looks like food but its not.

It's because people get addicted to all of the flavor enhancers, chemicals, fat and sugar in those processed foods. The companies who make those "foods" add stuff to them to get people to keep eating them.

I know smoking is bad for me, but I haven't quit yet. Junk food is the same way. I used to LIVE on junk food. I LOVED it! I knew they SAID it was bad for me, but it hadn't killed me yet, so I just ignored the warnings and continued to eat, yes, garbage.

I can't stand the smell of it anymore either. If people could get away from it for just a few months, I think most would never go back to it.

No kidding! I'm a recovering food addict, with a very strong remedy! :huh:

This past summer my fam dropped cable tv and picked up Netflix. My husband got in a mood while I was vacationing with the kids and started watching documentaries on Food Habits. When I returned he had me sit and watch one or two with him. "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" started it off for me. Then there was Food, Inc. followed by one that talks about the beverages we drink that come in plastic containers (which dissolve into the drink before we even purchase it), and an entire slew of other videos that twisted my brain AND my stomach (seriously, seeing a man remove a 'plug' from the side of a living cow :blink: and thrust his hand into the cow's gut while the cow is eating, :o and say it doesn't hurt them???--eeewww). <_<

Ironically, since watching those shows, I'd found I couldn't drop the addictive habit which has become a way of life for so many Americans. I tried...lasted only 3 days for the juice diet, felt great, but old habits tend to be ingrained and I was back at the grease-joint, suckin down the liquid sugar.

Then in November, the most embarrassing thing happened. :unsure: I got the most severe case of... hemorrhoids! :blink: Oh my, I didn't know docs operated on them, seriously, who talks about that stuff!? So...in I went for surgery (after 3 drs said they weren't going to touch me and referred me off to the next specialist!) to remove internals and externals the size of my dr's thumb! :huh: (The cause: Two back-to-back days of Sonic's Chili Coneys with a side of cheese tots and a soda, just to ease a craving!). Spent an extra night in the hospital because of the pain (and night nurse was only permitted to give me ONE dose of morphine!) :blink: I laugh about it all now, but ooooh! if that isn't a life changer!

For one entire week I could only handle taking in apple juice (yes, out of that dreaded dissolving plastic bottle). I didn't dare have a bm, and since it takes up to 3 mos or more to heal I'm still scared of that natural part of living! :blink:

The forum for these operations mentions that most people will return to the diet that caused them. Sure enough, I'm one...but!...oddly now, I can't stand french fries--they taste like salted cardboard coated in grease. Anything greasy makes my mouth hurt, and my gums itch. Soda, chips, and many candies now cause my tongue and throat to swell and I suddenly develop sinus issues and a slight cold! I don't dare touch anything with gluten as it requires a chaser of a very large dose of a laxative (and cancellation of all activities the next day!). <_< I still go to those junk food havens, but I found, I don't eat like I used to! I opt for salads with no dressing (what is IN those??); baked potato over fries; and I choose chicken over beef, even though they are both deep fried there is just something about beef at fast food that makes me feel blah! and I can't swallow it (even steak!). And I've switched from soda (with an occasional child size when out/about that takes me all day to down) to tea and filtered water which is now always at my side. :D

And the smell. It turns my stomach so that I'm just not interested in eating. The smell of fresh baked gluten-bread will turn my stomach some days, but I feel hungry after smelling it (have to retrain the brain; it's all a mess!).

This is what our country has come to. We are so trusting that we don't question what is put on a plate in front of us. We are a country of addicts, but we are stubborn addicts and don't like to be told what is/isn't healthy for us. :angry:

Sometimes it takes a surgery in a certain part of the body <_< to make ya change your ways because ya really, REALLY become aware of what you eat! :blink: (I wouldn't wish that surgery on my worst enemy!!) :unsure:

Glad you vented! I agree. We have become accustomed to eating "garbage".

My husband and I were out and I had to go to the bathroom really badly and the only place around was a Burger King. I ran in there to the bathroom and the bathroom actually smelled better than the restaurant.

It truly is garbage...Expensive garbage.

I love that you shared your experience in the hospital! That is really food for thought!!! :P I'm sure it wasn't easy to share that and I'm so thankful that you did. I eat insanely healthy (a "nutritarian" diet, wholly plant-based) but I do get tempted from time to time to eat something I shouldn't. (Cheese is a nasty temptress!) Now I will think of your experience and it will help me behave!

I thought you and the OP might be interested in looking up Dr. Doug Lisle and his ideas about "The Pleasure Trap". It explains why human beings get addicted to fat, sugar and salt. It is truly fascinating!

I also loved Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and Food Inc. Have you seen Vegucated, Planeat or Forks Over Knives yet? They are absolutely worth your time. As is Earthlings, though that one is hardcore.

90% of people KNOW most of the food you get in any fast food place is bad for them and they continue to eat it. I live, eat and breath food because of food allergies and Celiac in my child. I know what too much and the wrong things do to a persons body. Has it changed the way I eat? To a point. I still get Whoppers when I go to Burger King. Sure, I know better but it's also my choice.

No reason to judge others for what they eat.

I also know plenty of Dr's, nurses and other medic professionals who smoke or drink to much. It's life.

McDonald's puts a bunch of sugar in their hamburger buns to make their food more addictive. There is even sugar in the french fries. :blink:

Who knows. I've never eaten a Big Mac and have never wanted to. Not only do they smell bad but they look and sound bad too.

    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)

    • I had a biopsy done (2 samples, 1 on a lesion and 1 next to lesions), and also more bloodwork done. All came back negative. However, I only had been eating gluten for 2 weeks prior, and it took a week of gluten for lesions to reappear. I also used a topical steroid off and on (1x a week approximately) for a month or so before testing. The dermatologist told me to stay off gluten though, and said she wants to do more allergy testing (her next open testing appt is in 6 months!!). I know I'm not the DR, but I dont think it's allergies...without a doubt, my skin begins clearing about 2 weeks post gluten-free diet...this is without changing anything else in my lifestyle. And when i had to go back on gluten before my biopsy, it took about a week, but did reappear. Now, about 2 weeks post biopsy and gluten-free, it had begun clearing until i worked outside all day in heat, humidity,  sweat etc and it has definitely irritated all the places that were healing (not new breakouts, just aggravating what was going away!). All that being said, i have a friend who is an MD( who's hobby is to attend conferences on skin conditions!), and she has told me that without a doubt, I have celiac/DH.  I think I just feel like I need test results and paperwork to show for it...especially to show family members who are unsupportive (gross understatement!) of the extreme changes I've had to make!
    • Sorry ! I have never cruised before.  Just wanting to follow your topic.  Good luck! Have a great,  safe vacation.  
    • Hi there, I hope you're all having a good day! I'll be heading on a week-long Carnival cruise shortly and had a few questions: -What is the tipping protocol? I've prepaid gratuities, but feel like the food request will warrant something extra. Should I tip the headwaiter? Hostess? Regular waiter? Chef? Those cooking at, say, the sandwich or pasta bars? If so, how much is appropriate, and should I tip at the beginning of the cruise, the end, or split it up? -It looks like the main dining room will be closed during lunch hours on most days. Any recommendations on safe bets for midday meals? I'll be on the Carnival Sunshine, for what that's worth. Thank you so much for any information you can share!
