    i think it's better than it used to be but yeah :) bit weird it's a sort
    of trendy food now. if i were using it for a sandwich i'd probably upgrade to pate or ham spread or something. and for frying, just plain old ham or sausage makes more sense *shrug*

    Musubi is pretty great, though. I mean, just do an image search and it looks so good!

    You'd never heard of spam (food)? I find that hard to believe.. I had known about that long before 'spam' had started to be used to refer to junk e-mail.

    There may be other brands & types of canned ham, but spam is a canned ham that can be sliced.

    I'll do the same. That said, Spam Musubi is one of my favorite ways to have it... think large spam sushi for those unfamiliar, usually seared with teriaki sauce.

    Spam is just canned pork shoulder, the quality is generally better than most cheap deli meat actually.

    Certainly I know what spam literally is, just under different names in my own country, and believe or not, I just did not connect these two by the same English words. Please mind that this is my second language, so I still have either cultural or educational gaps in my vocabulary :)

    Mielonka (mince) is just a mix of whatever was left in the butchery's floor and mixed again to sell. it can have sausage, bones.. fucking lowest quality of meat you can consider to put on your sandwitch... I'd not consider it for eating even if I was homeless drunk.

    Krakus is canned ham, but perhaps higher quality product than SPAM if I consider previous comparison to "mielonka". both exist in plastic wrap and cans.

    I believe SPAM is SPAM and I may find some analogies in my local products, but maybe not exactly the same thing at the end.

    You'd never heard of spam (food)? I find that hard to believe.. I had
    know

    I bet lots of people who don't have English as their first language think SPAM refers to junk-messages only.

    True. I thought that Spam might have the same name in all languages, but I suppose that might not be the case.

    Sir, I respect all kinds of verbal and articulative nastiness as long as it's intelligent, crisp and on point. No fluffing and no playing an idiot, unless you want to be perceived like one.

    I've read many times you two argue and I'm sure many times you could feel victimized by your opponent's style.. if that can be called that way.

    Still provoking another round, without being invited to fight and playing stupid at the end, makes you an idiot who hasn't yet realized what Stockholm Syndrome is.

    Sometimes it's just better to let it go, you know? Especially when you spotted 3rd party observers who just see this ain't binary anymore.

    well i can buy a tube of sausage. then i have to buy the flour and milk.
    that can be around 10 bucks altogether.

    or i can buy a can for 1.50 from walmart.

    That's how I was treating coffee before. I used to say "as long as it works, it can be made from oil" about coffee.

    But then at home we purchased some good coffee machine and we started being selective about the beans. Me and my wife have learned how to store it to keep the beans fresh. Roasting is another thing I'd like to learn.

    But even if we buy some nice already roasted beans from various vendors and geographic specialties.. coffee actually started tasting well.

    I also stopped using sugar in my tea/coffee drinks years ago.
    It also helped to sharpen my tongue to start tasting more flavors.

    Sugar is such a taste fuzzing thing that was demolishing the whole experience before.

    That is correct. I stopped using white/brown sugar about 3 years ago and it took a while to discover my tongue is capable of different tastes.

    I had stopped all sugar for about a year while I focused on losing weight. One day, after baking some treats for an event, I had some old malted milk powder and sweetened condenced milk. I decided that I had the calories to spend and it wasn't like I was going to have more than a tablespoon anyway.

    tl;dr; The sugar rush hit me like a freight train. I think I experienced what LSD users experience. I could hear colors and see sound. Then the crash hit and I took a nap. That never happened again.

    I also found that with me aging I appreciate more dry/bitter tastes

    To loose weight, you need to have a net negative in total
    calorie intake in good quality foods (whole foods, no processed
    stuff). I used the BMI as a starting point. From that, I
    determined the max daily calories to achieve the weight I
    wanted to have. For me, it was 1800 cals per day, and that
    worked out to about 100 cals per waking hour. With the per hour
    insight, I realized that snacking between the 3 traditional
    mealtimes was ok as long as I did not exceed the total for the
    day. And, by maintaining a steadier cals in shorter hour
    intervals, I was less hungry overall.

    Another factor in the eating plan was more activity. Most of my
    work could be considered sit-down office work (although I
    actually stand at my desk and counter) most of the time. But
    through the encouragement of a friend, I doubled my average
    daily steps and kms from about 1500 steps or 1.6km, to between
    2500-4000 steps or almost 3kms. I just started looking for
    opportunities to walk more: parking further away from
    department store entrances, navigating almost every aisle in
    the grocery store even if i don't need anything from that
    aisle, etc.

    I see guys about my age who have protruding guts. I was on the

    I think I still need to better manage my diet as my weight just doesn't want to drop below 100kg (~220lbs ?) while my optimal weight should be closer to 90-95kg (200-210lbs ?). I could manage it double digit kilos before I turned 40.. now the metabolism is just playing dirty tricks with me..

    Some of my friends, my age introduced keto to get some significant weight loss/control effect, but I just can't be consequent, nor my wife is while we dine and cook together.


    you hit a wall. you need to exercise.
    also reducing carbs might help.

    To loose weight, you need to have a net negative in total
    calorie intake in good quality foods (whole foods, no processed
    stuff). I used the BMI as a starting point. From that, I
    determined the max daily calories to achieve the weight I
    wanted to have. For me, it was 1800 cals per day, and that
    worked out to about 100 cals per waking hour. With the per hour


    with me i'm a bit fat because of how my life is. i was working nights for 3 years, so i'd eat and then go to sleep.
    that's how sumo wrestlers get fat.

    Krakus is canned ham, but perhaps higher quality product than SPAM if I consider previous comparison to "mielonka". both exist in plastic wrap and cans.

    Worth noting that SPAM is relatively high quality compared to most sausages and deli meats. The reputation for being otherwise is pretty undeserved.

    SPAM was used by the military in the pacific theater of operations in
    WWII since it was easy to keep unrefrigerated. It's still popular in pacific islander cuisine, and Hawaii is the highest consumer of SPAM by state.

    "The Food That Built America" had a decent episode regarding the origins of SPAM... it was to preserve pork shoulder in a portable way similar to canned ham, but at a smaller size, so it would be more affordable. It was also spiced and seasoned a bit more heavily to cover the differences in the use of pork shoulder over actual ham.

    The reputation for being lower quality is mostly undeserved as it's actually relatively high quality compared to other sausages and deli meats, preserved (canned) or otherwise.

    I have about 10 sodas a year on special occasions. One day I thought, this ain't good for me so I just quit. I'm not perfect with health, but that seemed like a fairly easy win. I also quit potato chips which was a harder one because I really liked them, and that I had to do cold turkey. I went to a picnic once and realized I had eaten an entire bag by myself. That was my last potato chip.

    Bottom line for me is that non-diet ones that actually contain sugar are probably better/safer for you. If the few extra calories you might get
    from sugar in a soda is a deal-breaker for somebody, they've got
    significantly bigger problems than that.

    No pun intended on the "significantly bigger" part there - don't want to offend Tracker1.

    soda is not a health food, so shouldn't be treated as such.

    have it occasionally as a treat. cooking your food on a grill and blackening it is far more dangerous, 'they' say.

    On 12 Sep 2023, MRO said the following...

    soda is not a health food, so shouldn't be treated as such.
    i dont think soda with sugar substitutes will be bad for you if you
    have it occasionally as a treat. cooking your food on a grill and blackening it is far more dangerous, 'they' say.

    yeah, i'm attempting to train myself to think of it like having a beer. you wouldn't have one at work, or a weekday, or whatever. (well, some people might! ha)

    it's an addiction like anything. in my case i let it become part of my routine (wake up, get ready, stop at the gas station for the pop, etc). probably best i just replace it with a unsweetened coffee, tea, something to fill that routine.

    i quit pop once before via avoiding caffeine. you'd be surprised how much of a flavor/psychological effect/whatever caffeine has. this was back when mountain dew still had a caffeine free option too. they aren't great and it turned my soda-seeking routine into caffeine-free seeking and i just went from there.

    i'm working on it again. decided i'm almost 40 and don't wanna add extra potential reasons to keel over early. from family history on average my options are 65 or >80

    to borrow the name of an old local bbs, "reality bytes" ..

    i lost a lot of weight and size doing low carb. i had a health scare that ended up being stress related. my mom died of covid on her birthday during christmas time and i had to deal with her affairs and her adopted kids, dogs, etc.
    I also left my job as an electronics tech and my boss' right hand man.

    it was driving my bp through the roof. i was a walking timebomb and i was going to die. so my bp was like 220 over whatever.

    anyways, i went on the turkey sandwich diet and i was walking 4-6 miles a day. nothing happened for a long time and then i lost a lot of fat and size.
    i still had cheat days but when i had that pizza i put some weight back on.

    anyways, i got sick of living that way. i wanted to be happy instead of being fit and attractive. i'm not looking to impress anybody.

    so here i am fat again. i'm not busting out , heavy breathing fat either. i can walk 10 miles, easy, i can lift 50lb bags of whatever every day.
    right now i want to fit into my old clothes and leather jackets so i think i may be ready to lose weight again.

    here's the secret. you have to be ready. if you arent ready, you won't get it done.

    I rarely add sugar to foods. I have a container of sugar that I've had since I moved 3 years ago that I haven't even opened.. Aside from baking something that might require sugar, I'm not sure what I'd want to add sugar to.

    Is that the one that's known to cause cancer?

    If you consume the equivolent of 80 gallons of soda a day, sure.

    Is that something scientifically known, or just something you pulled out of your ....? well, you know.

    I'm sure you can provide a reference showing that, right?

    Look up the study in question, if you compare the body mass of the mice to humans then calculate the amount they were giving the mice, it's something along the lines of what would take, iirc, 80 gallons of soda per day to intake. Unless you work with the raw ingredient in sufficient quanities and even then would be hard to injest that much. I looked it up and did the math around a decade and a half ago. In any case, it was significantly more than a person is
    likely to injest in the form of soda or other liquid beverages.

    Also, aspertame and sucralose are more common these days along with a few other artificial sweeteners and sweetness enhancers. The affects of which are somewhat more concerning for some. The Potassium based compound in "Zero" for example. The biggest risks seem to come from hormone responses when consumed outside of meals, the body expects caloric intake when taking in something sweet. This is why I try to keep flavored drinks to just with meals and drink mostly water outside that.

    Not all diet sodas are the same. I'd imagine diet sodas with stevia should be better for you, as stevia is a natural plant extract.

    Probably, but it hasn't been tested in either case... aspertame in particular is one of the most tested substances other than water on the planet.

    That said, stevia soda takes some getting used to, there's a bitter aftertaste on the back of the tongue. If you have a SodaStream, you can use flavored stevia drops with that and it'll save a lot over the canned Zevia and other brands that are pretty pricey.

    Bottom line for me is that non-diet ones that actually contain sugar are probably better/safer for you. If the few extra calories you might get from sugar in a soda is a deal-breaker for somebody, they've got significantly bigger problems than that.

    Worth noting that a single 12oz can of soda has the recommended limit on daily sugar intake for an adult male. Most people in the US get way behond that.

    yeah but sugar soda is empty calories.

    Worth noting is that nearly 2/3 of the calories one takes in are purely for energy use. Though excess fructose can be problematic, as only the liver can metabolise it, think all the problems of alcohol without the negative reinforcement of a hangover.

    Yeah, it's definitely hard to stick to when you live with people consuming other things, especially if you like those other things. Does the vegetarian in question include eggs or fish? Only ask, as supplements are crucial if not getting at least eggs or fish in the diet (eggs being slightly better for nutrition).

    The risks of not getting enough salt are FAR greater than too much. The lowest levels of consumption of salt vs the highest only increase BP by about 1-2. Salt to taste. In fact, there have been experiments showing that people often eat to satiety based on salt content, which means if you don't use salt, you're incliuned to simply eat more. Of course, anything prepared for you likely has plenty already. Home cooks often don't use enough though.

    Ah.. but from celery it's a accompanied with fiber. Big
    difference. And.. natural sources of nitrates are converted to
    nitric oxide. According to WebMD, spinach, bok choy, lettuce
    and carrots are mentioned as sources of natural nitrates.
    Dunno why celery isn't mentioned. But the source of nitrates
    in vegetables "are less likely to be harmful (ie to form
    nitrosamines). This is because they aren't protein-rich foods
    and also contain protective components like vitamin C,
    polyphenols and fibre, which have all been shown to reduce
    nitrosamine formation."

    This article seems to explain the concerns pretty good:

    aftertaste on the back of the tongue. If you have a SodaStream, you
    can use flavored stevia drops with that and it'll save a lot over the
    canned Zevia and other brands that are pretty pricey.

    man i looked that up. still expensive. especially the co2 bottles.

    I got an adapter hose so I can hook up a regular CO2 tank, I have two 5# tanks they last about 6 months or so, if I used it regularly, would still last at least a few months.

    yeah, most people who are 'into' sodastream end up swapping for the same stuff beer brewers use. welding shops can refill tanks for really cheap, and then you carbonate a few 1 to 5 gallon tanks of whatever you'd like.

    Yeah, did the same a few years ago when I got it, I'd suggest staying away from the welding co2, it can sometimes be funky, best to get food grade co2 from a brew shop.

    i had all the equipment for beer kegging and made root beer once. it was kind of nice, but it gets old having 5 gallons of it. kind of wish i had though of making rootbeer floats with it.. d'oh

    Used to be a small brewer in Prescott that would make the max allowed of "real" rootbeer (sasafrass root) once a year, but last run they sold out in a day, and got calls for weeks after so they stopped. I don't think I could go through 5 gallons in any kind of reasonable timeframe. Let alone the sugar content.

    Had DQ today for the first time in a very long time, woke up with a glucose at 58, and needed a bump.

    man i would really like to try that.. sarsparilla was always my favorite.
    it was inauthentic, obviously :) basically differently flavored root beer
    made by Sioux City and a few others ... seems to have fallen out of favor though around where i live. pretty big competition from other more trendy "craft" soda companies.

    i live near founder's brewing company and they have the same problem with
    some of their stout beers. lines all around the building and traffic jams around the bus station. maybe that's improved a bit now that they have an actual schedule they follow.

    They are expensive up-front, but if you buy carbonated
    water/seltzer/whatever in cans/bottles, you'll save a lot by moving to Sodastream - and create less waste in the process.

    After the first canister, you're spending a fraction of what you would
    buying bottled/canned water.

    with all this talk of soda i got a case of real pepsi and i'm hating
    it. it tastes so gross. also after drinking one i want to have anoter because i'm still thirsty.

    Pepsi Zero sugar is the least worst of the Pepsi options. I drank one in
    a pinch a few weeks ago at a taqueria.

    Most of the taquerias around me seem to be Pepsi joints.

    they fucked with it and took out the ginseng and the extra caffeine and made it it sweeter. i liked it when it was pepsi max.

    The last time I really used a SodaStream was around 2017 or so, and I don't remember their CO2 bottles being that expensive. Maybe the prices have gone up since then.

    Yeah, but once you buy the canister you can swap them out for a fraction
    of that price - I think I pay $14.99 for a swap.

    Would definitely not use a propane tank for CO2 for anything you intend to consume.

    No worse than caffeine or alcohol. Coca-Cola paid for a bunch of junk studies to get real rootbeer outlawed, when they had to remove cocaine from their recipe.

    You can exchange them for refills at a few different local stores for a lot less... also, can order directly from soda stream for new canisters. As I said, I bought an adapter and larger bottle(s) that I only have to fill every few months for about $20. This is offset by the more expensive flavored stevia drops I use.

    Thats for new bottles, you can exchange bottles for a filled one for about $15-17. Although I'm using an adapter with larger co2 bottle that's about $20 to fill, and holds almost 5x what the official ones hold.
