What does this mean?

You can find true answers and false ones online that claim to be true.



Studies have been done on this and have not shown a connection. My doctors are all associated with a medical school, so are familiar with the latest research. None of them have told me to watch for certain symptoms, with the exception of symptoms associated with acute anemia.

My Homeopath feels otherwise, would you like his number? I know what works for me and some people feel the same. I don't need proof.




Well, I have googled it, specifically restricting the search to educational institutions, and all I found is studies disproving the idea. A tip: You can restrict searches by putting this in the search bar: site:*.edu for educational institutions, site:*.gov for governmental sites, etc. I don't get medical information from sites that are out to sell something.

I get bored often but never that bored. You're making a mountain out of a mole hill.



I don't have a problem with alternative options; I'm seeing an acupuncturist, who is also an MD specializing in cardiology, to try to treat my chronic headaches. I do object to unproven alternatives and I don't consider anecdotal evidence to be reliable.

Thanks for the good wishes
I really meant it. Hope you find an answer

Don't worry, friends, I'm done This is just one of those topics that pushes my buttons because it's so personal to me.

I'm eating leftover stuffed shells for breakfast, then I will work on my take-home final exam for my master gardener class, and then I will go to lunch at a cafe in a farmer's market (featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives once!) to attend, interestingly enough, a talk on food politics by a farmer/activist

I heard about this study years ago and tried to find a reliable source on the internet, but this was all I could find.

"She cites studies that claim that young children, given free rein to eat a large variety of foods--both those considered healthy and downright dreck--will, over a period of seven to 10 days, choose a balanced diet. Sure, one day may be nothing but Cheetos and pop, but over that long week, their choices will balance." from MetroActive Dining | Intuitive Eating

I know, it might be an urban legend, but, if you read the article, The dietician pretty much explains how I feel about food.

One learns to listen to ones body by eating slowly and by paying attention. Lots of people have stopped paying attention. It's well known that we have feedback about when to stop eating, but how many people ignore those signals and keep eating? Isn't that how we end up eating enough to be "stuffed"? Well, I think there is feedback on what nutrients we need. Most of us just ignore the subtle signals from our body that we should be eating something specific to get some nutrients that we need. It becomes habit to ignore the signals.

I have eaten pork chops and steak, in winter, where the fat around the edge tasted really good for the first few bites and then started to taste gross. I believe that my body first told me that I needed fat, and then told me I had eaten enough fat.

No, it might not work for everyone. We are almost all born with imperfections in our bodies. But it's worth the slight effort to eat slowly and pay attention to try to learn to listen to our bodies so it can tell us what to eat and what not to eat.

It pushes my buttons too. If there is interest, we could start another thread.
