Top Doctor Warns of Deep Fat

OMG
what is this thing that lurks
in my hidden innards?
I should have sworn off gluten
when I had the chance
transfat settled in my what?

OMG yes! I can feel it
slosh and roll when I walk.
I warded off systemic yeast infection
in the 80s, carb addiction after that.

Jettisoned my toxic friends
who caused acute gas attacks,
GMOs, BHG, HDH--OMG
what can I do, what can I eat?

Tough choices Linda. 
A little of what you fancy is good advice...as I age I prefer cyclical fasts and binges   ;)
Other advice is eat what your grandparents ate...but you must work your body the way they did!
I don't want to live to big numbers...life is about quality not quantity in my book.
I'm also very much aware that Life is ironic. The more you try to control it the more fun it has
surprising you with even more unrelated ways to end it  ;)
Anywho, I enjoyed the read very much  :)

I refer to the many "women's magazines" on the checkout counter shelves with the inevitable touting of some fabulous new way to "blast belly fat" or "lose 10 pounds in 10 days" or "tighten thunder thighs" or "lift sagging jowls" or "become the woman your husband still desires" or "find the secret to a slimmer you" or blah blah blah. If women paid attention to all these admonitions to "fix" themselves think how broken they might come to think they are.

You are so on the mark Colm--the more you try to control it-----

thanks for the read and comments.

So much disinformation about food...you are what you eat is a truism though. Avoiding the inflammatory stuff is a good general rule. Topical piece.

Somene recently said that food is the new religion. Redemption through organic grains and superfoods.

Nicely put down in writing, Indar.  If we followed 1/10th of what grocery store tabloids tell us, we'd be worse wrecks than we already are.  My mom always preached moderation in all we do.  I suspect Colm would disagree, but I must agree with most of his thoughts.  And Mark is right - perfect topic for our times.
Love the poem... now for some pizza and beer !!!!
