I don't eat it as much as I used to . No longer are hamburgers, tacos, pizza, spaghetti and heavy foods part of my food intake. I eat chicken a few times a week, well done, but am getting bored with it. I think I'll switch it for a turkey breast now and then to have some different flavor.
How people eat prime rib and medium cooked meat, I could never stomach it. It it's pink or red or oozing red, I'm not eating it. Always have to have my meat cooked well done.
I will have a 85% hamburger patty, once every few weeks, chicken a few times a week, Sometimes just a cheese sandwich, a salad or yogurt or cottage cheese for my protein.
When I was thin (up until age 35), I was one of those people who could eat the appetizer or two, two huge drinks, salad and bread sticks, and then the main course, and then desert with no problem. Weighed 120 never gained weight. When I see an "Olive Garden" or "Red Lobster" commercial nowadays, I think, "Where would one put all that food??" One portion of that 4-course meal would fill me up. AND I would gain at least 6 lbs for eating all that, in one day, and then it would take me 6 weeks to lose that 6 lbs. So not worth it.
We wonder why America's obese. Look at the portion sizes they are feeding everyone. Go to Jack-in-the-Box or Carl's Jr. and have a double-hamburger, or a triple hamburger, or even a four-patty. Makes me sick. Heart attacks waiting to happen.
Meat just isn't that important to me anymore.
I agree. But not ready to go all the way veg yet.
