have you ever had a certain person in your life, that had everything you ever dreamed of and just threw it all away? I do! he is a young man, brought up the right way and protected from the bad things in the world the right way, but he decided to throw it all away for one simple young woman he doesn't even know but through pictures and phone talking. This young man had a business that was passed down from the family, but shunned it away because he couldn't make his own rules and his own path. The ones that loved him filled with so much pain and despair as he shoved and screamed at them to go away and bother him no more. Well this young man is in the company of what the devil blinds us with. Fake woman, fake emotions, fake words. He jumped right by the hands of God reaching out to catch him and fell and fell and fell into the waiting arms of the Devil himself. This young man did not know he fell this far, No! he thought he had fallen into heaven, because this young woman said I am a Christian woman. She stole him with lies and with pictures that no Christian woman would dare show even her husband! She stole him from the true ones that he loved and created him into the tool of the demons that work for the devil themselves. This young man began to lie and then lie and lie some more till he drag the ones that loved him so much down into the dirt and shattered and broke them into pieces, just like the Devil himself does to anyone he touches. I have seen the work of the Devil, I have lived these same lies before. But this young man will have none of the lies he thinks I tell or anyone else around him tells, so the young man drags his siblings down, and fills them with lies and lies and lies and creates them to do the devils work because they have been glamored by these lies. One fights it and the other laughs and embraces it with the young man. They hide his lies and painful things he does, they are working as demons when they do this, they are shunning God and his words. But I still stand there and watch, no words uttered, no hand raised to share the advice that he does wrong...for I know what will happen to this young man and I wait and watch like a wolf hunting its prey. He will stumble and then he will fall and when he falls if no one catches him he will forever be lost to the world of lies and forever burn in hell and do the devil's work. But I will be there to catch him, whether he knows someone is here for him or not. The ones the brought him to this are the ones that will be punished in the end by God's hand. I know this because I have been punished by God's hands before, he has let me slip and fall but he has always been watching and never lets me hit hard enough to were he can't just reach out and help me back up and hold and sooth my wounds. God is watching you young man, he has his eyes forever on you. You were once his beloved son and you still are whether you know it or not. he is watching......he is praying....he is waiting for you to return to him and if letting you fall and shatter like the ones who loved you so much did....God will let it happen...but he will heal the shattered pieces and make you whole once more...because life started with God and will always end with God....never forget that...because God then might act like you and forget all about you too...
going through a rough time right now, my brother in law who is only 19 is hurting his mother so and I love my mother in law as much as my brother in law and his stupidity is amazing and so full of hate right now. I wrote this because it kind of shows whats going on. to better understand it you would have to live in my life. but I try not to share there information, because its private so I wrote this to help me with what I want to say to him and of the hard time. as we speak he is packing his bags up and leaving with an ignorant friend that has started this all...I don't know what to do...

Okay Annie here we are. I am going to post it here so all can see! I go off of some of the stuff I post and sometimes I don't. I have found my balance and it is working for me so I stick to it.
Okay so healthy eating starts with
2 to 3 servings of non starchy vegetables
2 servings of fruit
6 servings of grain, beans, and starchy veggies
2 servings of low-fat or fat-free milk
about 6oz of lower fat meat or a meat substitute
and very small amounts of fat and sugar.
A lot will agree that this doesn't seem right in the whole eating level but this is actually based on the number of calories you will need, yours will change due to your sex, size, age and activity level! so this is someones started out for you so you can see how it can be modified and how low you can go in what you can eat or you can add more on due to your calorie needs. But like I say I have never gone over 1720 on SP and I feel this is too high but its working great for me because I burn almost close to 1650 a day with how I work out. So don't feel overwhelmed we will all help you on SP!
Sodium as anyone knows is bad in huge moderation so watch out for the soups, snack foods, processed foods and frozen foods because they all have a huge amount of sodium that no one really needs. so its better to always go fresh and all made by you because then you don't have to watch this as much, I never add salt to anything because of how much some things already have. To me your struggling because you feel lost and trapped within not knowing what is good to eat, how much you can eat, do you have to follow there rules or can you make your own and also that you don't understand the weighting of foods. To answer those questions is simply create you own list. I want you to write a list out of what you like to eat and if you want a huge major help I will create meals for you. I love helping so if I am a little over what I should be saying yell at me all you want because I never know when to shut my mouth!!
Cereals, grains, pasta, breads, crackers, snacks, starchy vegetables and cooked beans, peas and lentils are starches.
these should be eaten as shown
1/2 cup cooked cereal, grain, or starchy vegetables
1/3 cup of cooked rice or pasta. I cheat and go to 1/2 for brown and whole wheat pasta because it is less in things that enriched white pasta and rice has.
1oz of a bread product such as 1 slice of bread. Here I switched to a wrap or pita! because they are considered one slice and you can eat it a lot easier than you can 1 slice of bread. I go whole wheat or organic on all my tortillas or pita breads.
3/4 oz to 1 oz of most snack foods *some snack foods will have extra fat so honestly it is better to stay away from these!*
( Also make sure to eat 3 to more servings of whole grains each day. This is how you get the maximum healthy benefits.)
Always choose low-fat starches as often as you can!!
good so far? AWESOME!! I want you to learn as we go along because this is how I learned and I want to pass it on to SP, not just you!!
okay here are some breads and there serving suggestions
Bagel, Large(about 4oz)1/4(1oz)
Reduced Calorie bread you can have 2 slices but any other bread even whole wheat is only 1 slice
Hot dog and hamburger buns are the same-1/2*1 oz*
Pancakes-1 pancake 1/3 inch thick
taco shell, 5 inch across is-2 of them
Tortilla, corn, flour is 1
Tip: an open handful is equal to about 1 cup or 1oz to 2oz of snack food.
Mixed veggies with corn, peas, or pasta is 1 cup
peas and parsnip is 1/2

Beans and Lentils
beans, cooked ( black, garbanzo, kidney, lima, navy, pinto and white) 1/2c
Lentils * brown, green, yellow) 1/2c
re fried beans also 1/2c
always choose whole grain foods. whole grain foods include whole-wheat flour, whole oats/oatmeal, whole grain cornmeal, popcorn, buckwheat flour, whole rye, whole grain barley, brown rice, wild rice, bulgur, millet, quinoa and sorghum.
read carefully if a product says 100% whole grain it must contain 16grams per serving and a whole grain stamp means it has 1/2 serving of whole grains which is 8grms.
also never hurts to add 7 tablespoons of cooked grains to stews, soups and veggie salads.
Always choose fresh fruit over fruit juice as fresh always has more fiber than juices.
Apple. unpeeled and small is 1
applesauce, unsweetened is 1/2c
Banana extra small-1
cantaloupe, small 1/3melon or 1 cup cubed
Honeydew Melon-1 slice or 1 cup cubed
Strawberries-1 1/4 cup whole berries
Watermelon-1 slice 1 1/4 cups cubed
Fruit Juices is always 1/3 or 1/2 depending on what you wish to drink, going off amount on the bottle is okay because it shows its 1/3 or 1/2 all the time.
Whole Milk, Butter Milk, Goats Milk along with Yogurt, Plain is 1cup for each item. So is 1% and 2% for the milk options but for the yogurt it is 2/3.
It is always better to get plain yogurt and add some fruit into it instead of buy flavored yogurt and fruit yogurts.
I normally get french vanilla yogurt because it only has 1g of fat more because I get organic yogurt.
Choco. Milk is 1 cup
Eggnog is 1/2c
Rice drink-1 cup
Soy milk-1cup *this is what I drink instead of regular milk*
Smoothies is 10oz but I only drink 8oz because I use the rest later on in the day.

peppers ( all varieties)-3g DF
squash ( summer, crookneck, zucchini)
sugar snap peas
yard long beans
its 1/2c of cooked veggies and then 1 cup for raw veggies. So eat your raw veggies :D!
select grades on meat are the leanest. while choice grades have a moderate amount of fat! and stay away from prime cuts because they have the highest amount of fat on a piece of meat! Always try to cook in a roast broil or grill and stick on a rack to let extra fat roll off.
Also some types of fish like herring, mackerel, salmon, sardine, halibut, trout, and tuna are rich in OMEGA-3 FATS this is what helps reduce risk for heart disease and cholesterol. Choose fish two to more times a week ( not fried though).
Bake, roast, broil, grill, poach, steam or boil instead of frying! I love to bake myself!
Fish and Beef are both 1oz
Buffalo, ostrich, rabbit and venison is also 1oz
1oz of cooked meat, poultry, fish is about the size of a matchbox
3oz is playing cards
2tbsp of peanut butter is the size of a golf ball
the palm of a woman's hand is the size of 3oz to 3oz of cooked, boneless meat. A mans is the size of a larger serving.
1oz of cheese is about the size of 4 dice!
* so never let a man do your serving size JK! haha*
Bacon is something to stay away from but if you really crave it go for turkey bacon which is 3 slices
Cheese is all 1oz
Honestly if you really love your food and have trouble watching the portion sizes, it is best said to go plant based in proteins. The reason is because you can have 1 to 2 more slices than meat based protein!
Hummus is 1/3c
meatless burger 3oz
Chicken nuggets are-2CN
Tofu light or regular is 4oz which is 1/2c of tofu you can have. I love tofu only if you drench it into something else, because it will take on the flavor. Eat Tofu in stir fries or salads because its harder to tell what is tofu with so many other flavors in your mouth. better for those picky eaters.
okay quick learning of fats!
Unsaturated fats (omega 3, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated ) are primarily vegetable and are liquid at room temp. These fats have good health benefits
Omega-3 fats are a type of Polyunsaturated fat and can help lower triglyceride levels and the risk of heart disease!
Monounsaturated fats help lower total cholesterol levels and may help raise HDL which is good cholesterol levels!
Polyunsaturated fats can help lower cholesterol levels
SATURATED FATS have been linked to heart disease. they can raise LDL cholesterol levels and should be limited to small amounts. SATURATED FATS are solid at room temp. * this is being written down to let you understand how it will be in your arteries and stomach!*
Trans Fats are made in process that changes vegetable oils into semi-solid fats. these fats can raise blood cholesterol levels and should be limited to small amounts. partially hydrogenated and hydrogenated fats are types that are man-made trans fats and should be avoided. Trans fats are also found naturally occurring in some animal products such as meat, cheese, butter and dairy products!
Nuts and seeds if eaten in moderation are good sources of unsaturated fats and have tons of fiber, protein and magnesium!
Good source of Omega-3 fats are flax seeds and English walnuts and oils such as canola, soybean, flax seeds and walnut.
READ YOUR LABELS THEY LIE ABOUT TRANS FAT FREE ALL THEY HAVE TO HAVE IS 1/2 GRAM OF TRANS FAT PER SERVING TO BE LABELED AS TRANS FAT FREE!!!!
