    Back in the day, were there certain foods you constantly ate, but as you've gotten older, decided to utilize a more healthy version of because it was...basically better for you? I used to use regular sugar as far as eating cereal or whatever else needed it, but I use Equal now, mostly due to my old man being a diabetic and I know it's hereditary. Also been using ground turkey instead of beef whenever I grill burgers for myself.:o

    No processed foods. No bleached flours. No processed sugars. Nothing with High Fructose Corn Syrup in it. Ever. No fried or deep-fried foods. We grill, bake or saute' pretty much everything. No meats or poultry that have been given hormones, steroids or antibiotics. Eggs from free-range, grain-fed chickens with a rooster in the yard to maximize Omega fatty acids. Organic produce whenever possible, always thoroughly washed. Water filter on the fridge.

    Basically the same deal. Definitely no fried foods. Stay largely away from processed foods and pre-prepared meals (unless I have to go out to eat). I'd much rather cook my own stuff and control every last morsel of food that goes into my body.

    I dunno my parents have recently started that, for some insane reason. Our house is filled with Splenda, low fat, low cal, non fat, skim, 2%, Weightwatcher, turkey everything. (yet they still don't drink all natural juice, my biggest petpeeve)

    :(

    I think that's their way of passive aggresively kicking me out.

    I don't go into details, but I eat mostly Korean and Japanese food (all mostly grains and vegetables). I hardly eat any sugars, candy, or ice cream. I don't drink soft drinks. I only drink water, green tea, orange juice (some organic company), and pear juice (from overseas). I eat fruits every other night before I go to sleep.

    I'd say that is healthy. Not super healthy, but healthier than the average Joe.

    Turkey replacing beef is a good move. I do that quite a bit, recently by discovering turkey bacon...yummy.

    well, i don't eat any real sugar, save for the occasional (like, one a month) candy bar, only diet pepsi/vault zero, crystal light instead of kool-aid, if i'm hungry before bed, i'll drink a glass of milk instead of eat something. i substitute at least one meal a day with a slimfast or a can of tuna, and i avoid fast food as much as possible... maybe once or twice a month i'll get a burger or taco bell or something.

    so yeah, i'm not the healthiest eater out there, but better than most everyone i know.

    Well, I don't eat the food I grew up with that's for sure. I grew up in a southern baptist house. I try to get my food at Whole Foods, well the meat anyway. Since I hate going to the grocery store I stock up on frozen veggies (mixed, brussel sprouts, asparagus).

    After saying this, I cheated and bought a box of movie size Reese's Pieces from Circuit City because I had a gift card on me. For shame.

    I still eat plenty of processed crap, but I balance it out with veggies and natural fruit juice(or so they claim).

    I am trying to eat healthier now. Lots of veggies, no more sodas, OJ (Simply Orange), a little fried food (I am Southern), soylent green, lots of Green Tea, and lots of water. I do sneak a candy bar or some cookies about once a week. I'm no health nut for sure, but not a fast food junkie.

    I drink green tea on a daily basis. It ain't that bad once you get used to it.

    I don't really use alternatives, I just eat really healthy. It's not really a hardship for me though, I prefer things that way, anyway. Like, I never eat fast food, never drink cokes and stuff. I eat mostly organic fruits and veggies, virtually no processed foods, no fried foods. Gosh, it sounds like I don't eat anything, but I do, I just eat good food. I don't eat anything with high fructose corn syrup or partially hydrogenated oils, msg, stuff like that. When I eat meat, it's usually chicken or turkey over beef. If I eat beef, it's the cattle that didn't get hormones/antibiotics. And I buy the organic eggs from uncaged chickens. Sometimes I do substitutions with soy. And I sometimes make my own burrito shells (which are incredible, but a little time consuming because you have to knead the dough.) And I drink filtered water and herbal teas throughout the day. :up:
