Pizza and bean burritos are standard, at-least weekly fare, around here. I find to disgusting but the older one has an eating disorder and I need to get calories into her.

Kid who ate all that pizza gotta be a BOY. My girls eat 2 - 3 slices of medium and are DONE.

In my youthful glory of 12 yrs old a large pizza for myself was the reward for going to Bingo with my mother. No problem finishing off a large myself at all and I really was not that over weight at the time.

Control is with Diet modification, exercise, supps.

Veggies are wonderful things for holding a rich tangy cheese sauce or swimming in a garlic lemon butter. Hey even to carry a bit of cinnamon and mayo they work well. Lets see what else they are good for.....

Vegetables are great because they soak up butter. All the benefits of veggies come from how much butter they enable you to eat. *cheeky grin*

I'm with Daytona about the veggies and butter. Hehe, but pot roast, pork, and chicken slow cooked with butter in a crock pot are good too.

One of the problems is that the followers the powerful allopathic dogma of the metabolic world know that their world is flat and blood (that they can measure) is the only fluid that is important. Other less learned segments usually without allopathic medical degrees believe that their world is more spherical. These unenlightened persons believe that the organs are not really complete, independent entities in themselves and are instead part of a complex matrix called the the human body and the interstitial fluid is also important.

Vegetables have more to do with interstitial fluids and interstitial pH levels

If you were up to your neck in debt from school expenses and used up 8 years to learn/memorize a doctrine, how willing would you be to admit that the medical establishment was a pile of lies?
