    Just did my grocery shopping for 6 months

    Thanks to the tips I have received
    on this forum, I just completed 1/2
    of all my grocery purchases for the
    next 6 months via the Internet.

    I was sweating where to get the best
    prices and how many stops it would
    take on my bike and now I am just
    gonna go out and ride for FUN!

    Anyway,... I am aware of the cost of
    fuel to get the stuff to my door, and
    endless arguments can be made pro
    and con, but at least 'I' didn't spend
    any money on gas doing 1/2 my
    shopping for the next 6 months.

    PS: I bought a 44# bag of whey protein
    powder, a 5 lb bag of psyllium husk and
    a 1000 pack of Stevia sweetner. And
    other than the skim milk to make my
    smoothies with, that is all I need for
    the next 6 months. Sort of a bland diet,
    eh? That, and all the vitamins and
    supplements I take are still keep'n
    me healthy.

    Anyway,.. I just wanted to pass that
    success story on to you die hard CAR
    FREE folk.

    No fresh fruits or vegetables? Doesn't sound too healthy, if you ask me.

    How can you possibly east nothing but whey protein, psyllium husk (I have no idea what this is), sweetener, skim milk, and vitamins for six months?

    Do you at least have a garden?

    Don't laugh. there's a good internet forum on balcony gardening. You can grow a lot of food and flowers, even trees, in containers on a small balcony. Maybe Ned should consider one before he gets scurvy.

    I do about two or three real meals a week
    but YES, I live on whey protein powder.

    Check out the benefits of the stuff at:
    http://www.wheyoflife.org

    It helped me lose 90 lbs and keep it off
    for 7 years and I ain't gonna go back on that.

    Besides, my doctor is impressed with my
    lean muscle development, absolute loss of
    any flab and how I can ride my bike with
    abandon.

    And I take a full range of vitamin and mineral
    supplements in nice big doses as well as
    extra calcium, magnesium and zinc, and
    CQ10 and I take 10 grams of omega 3
    Fish Oil per day too. I can assure you
    I am healthy, trim and fit for a 55
    year old person. Top 10 % easily
    I would guess.

    And I did do some grocery shopping on my
    Rhoades Car tonight, but I took a 15 mile
    detour just for the fun of it.

    I thought the reason you bought your Rhodes car was so that you could make trips to the grocery store and carry plenty of stuff home. I'm not trolling, I'm just curious.

    I think you're cool ned. When you figure out what you should do, you just go ahead and do it and you don't give a zit what anybody thinks.

    Indeed...I've enjoyed your posts over the past few months as well, ned.

    seems lazy to be honest.

    Instead of working out a balanced meal, then preparing and cooking that meal, you rely on supps. Could be compared to buying weight watchers ready meals. Sure... they have everything you need to survive, but they are bland as hell!.

    What a pointless endeavour, half the joy of having a diet is discovering what you can eat in a healthy fashion, seems as if you've found a way to lose weight, and keep trim, but have a completely boring diet.

    I have a protein shake a few times a week after going to the gym. Sometimes add a banana or strawberries - they take 1 minute to make, fills you up, taste good, (i drink myoplex), and help your body recover after working out.

    i love cooking too, but i drink them for the same reason i eat cliff bars out and about - simple and easy

    Sure it is. Could simplify his entertainment/cultural enrichment needs by reading the same book over and over and over. Why complicate things with variety?

    Go easy on him, maybe he lost his taste buds years ago in a tragic popsicle accident or something.

    But kudos on the weight loss, man. That is a tough thing to do and 90 lbs is impressive any way you come about it and you should be proud.
    ...and don't forget to stretch!

    Well said. Exactly why I've been watching Footloose every weekend since 1985

    I eat to live... not live to eat. I think the taste of food is overblown alot of times. Now I personally don't think I could do the all protien shake thing, but at the same time to each his own. I don't think its lazy, its just what he wants to do. I HATE sitting around trying to figure out what to eat, i think its a waste.

    I would agree with you, except in my
    30s and 40s I was a serial yo-you dieter
    and I got sick of screwing up all the time.

    So I found for me what was a perfect
    losing and maintenance diet and am
    sticking with it. 7 years of 90 lb weight
    loss, and I am grateful.

    Besides folks, don't feel sorry for me.
    On my diet with the great amount of
    exercise I get I can go out virtually
    any day of the week I want and do
    a gourmet meal at a decent restaurant
    with friends. And I do. Steaks, Chinese,
    Mexican, Italian. I just don't do stuff
    that I have a history of screwing up
    on, like pizza.

    And besides, I have enough food in my
    house now that if there were a major
    power outage or civil disruption, I
    wouldn't have to shop for 6 months.

    I also have canned food, dry beans, rice
    and all that stuff. I just don't buy junk
    food and find that the Whey keeps me
    healthy.

    And yeh, I don't give a whit what other
    people think, I am gonna do it my own
    way! :O) (And live life large on my limited
    income, and laugh baby, laugh. -
    It's good for the soul, and longevity.)

    Luigi Cornaro, 16th century nobleman from Venice, advocated a minimal, abstemious diet. He gave the same reasons Ned does. If Luigi had detractors, that may not have mattered because he certainly outlived them. He was known as Cornaro the Centenarian.

    If you call that living. I prefer quality of life, rather than seeing who can last the longest at any price.

    I'll let Luigi answer for himself.

    Wherefore, I say, being arrived at my ninety-fifth year, God be praised, and still finding myself sound and hearty, content and cheerful, I never cease to thank the Divine Majesty for so great a blessing, considering the usual condition of old men. These scarcely ever attain the age of seventy, without losing health and spirits, and growing melancholy and peevish...

    And first, I am of service to my country, and what a joy is this. I find infinite delight in being engaged in various improvements, in connection with the important estuary or harbor of this city, and fortifications; and although this Venice, this Queen of the Sea, is very beautiful, yet I have devised means by which it may be made still more beautiful, and more wealthy, for I have shown in what way she may abound with provisions, by improving large tracts of land, and bringing marshes and barren sand under cultivation. Then again, I have another great joy always present before me. Some time since, I lost a great part of my income, by which my grandchildren would be great losers. But I, by mere force of thought, have found a true and infallible method of repairing such loss more than double, by a judicious use of that most commendable of arts, agriculture...
