Well you have to have salt-just not to much. Everything in balance. Sodium and Potassium important in every cell of body as well as osmolarity of blood. Your kidneys use sodium and urea to create the osmotic gradient for kidney function. Sodium homeostasis is crucial for life. So pass the salt I need it for my eggs. Don't forget the only thing that separates humans from all the other animals is bacon. A special food group unique to humans. LOL
Yeah you are literally what you eat. So if the diet not rich in essential amino acids, fats, carbs, you can't develop properly or function properly. All the amino acids need to be present for protein synthesis to occur-we aren't like bacteria that synthesizes all their needs often. That's often the issue with vegetarian diets is many foods are poor in specific amino acids so you have to eat a variety to meet your needs. Animal proteins are rich in all amino acids so it's never an issue. Most people don't eat enough nuts but it contains many essential fatty acids not common in other foods. Really if you eat a healthy diet you should never need to take vitamins or any supplements-although a caveat as we age certain ones become an issue. Americans didn't change their diets to accommodate our more sedentary lifestyle compared to past-so we got fat and lazy in layman's terms LOL. I use to be a big vitamin nut and supplements but you can actually do more harm than good so educate yourself to all the goings on. Now with a new field of metabolomics and more emphasis on your genetics scientist are understanding our evolutionary past and genetic ancestry makes us prone to certain diets and differences in metabolism (like take eskimos for instance and they thrive on a high fat diet is an extreme of how our genetics can determine our diet).
If used correctly, you should never actually taste salt it should only be an enhancer, but I'm with you on this. I also don't like the taste of salt.
I got lucky and have a local produce farm that will deliver to my house so I can keep on the fresh veggies and fruits (CO Palisade peaches are off the chart delicious), but shopping healthy is quite the endeavor and is certainly costly.
Being in the world of Agronomy, I will always defend the massive misunderstanding that surrounds GMOs. There are flaws, for sure, but a great deal of modification is done for pest and disease resistance in order to increase yield and lower cost to the consumer. Man has been genetically modifying plants since the earliest days of farming. Cross breeding species to get a more desirable result or a healthier plant. The most common one that springs to mind is bananas. Bananas have been genetically modified through cultivation for centuries to get what you find at the store, an unmodified banana tastes like arse and is loaded with seeds. The science end has allowed this process to speed up. Rather than taking decades of breeding to get the final desired result, the genes can be modified directly. But again I stress, this doesn't mean that all of the science being done is good, but neither is all of it the evil incarnate some would have you believe.
I could also go on about the misconceptions and propaganda that surrounds fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides, but this is not the place.
.Sodium is needed for proper nerve and muscle function also. Been reading a lot about sodium in the past few days. I was curious what would happen if one completely removed it from their diet. The short answer is eventual death. I was shocked. So too much or not enough sodium can kill a human. Crazy.
When we were finished she said:
"Are you proud of how well I helped you do that?"
I said: "I am so proud of how well you helped me get that done that I hope that someday soon I can find a girl that's JUST LIKE YOU.!"
That brought back a lot of memories.We were a lot more sociable in-person years ago than we are today. Perhaps this lack of camarderie is what's contributing to such unhappiness?

All I can say isBalance is key-very much so in exercise which I've always been a lunatic whether it was weight lifting, running, an elliptical or treadmill. I'm just all out so have ended up getting lots of injuries, I get into the place in mind I forget what's going on and apparently my autopilot is stuck in high gear LOL. When I learned to stretch and not go over board I found more success ad less injuries. Now because of my age now I'm only walking, swimming, pushups-no sit ups cause my back and I'll do extreme yard work for hours so my heart is racing hundred miles an hours, I'm all beat red, dehydrated and I don't even notice. This past year I was mowing my yard in my old house-it's one of those self-propelled jobs so it had been an easy choir. Well the belt broke and I just had to push it-which I was beat red looking like hell and my neighbors came to check on me. I was fine but I sat and drank some water and cooled down a bit before I finished. I think I did get overheated as I felt like crap for a couple weeks-my brain in a daze. I do wonder if my heart rate so high so long I'm really taking a risk but It's a crazy tenaciousness I have with physical activities like that-don't stop wimp so I keep pushing myself. My son-in-law hates to do outdoor choirs with me-cause he wants beer breaks-oh hell no we don't stop till we are finished. I think my Dad ingrained that in my bros and I since he was a slave driver. Really my whole life I've tended to ride the extremes and because of all those fud-ups I learned more balance. A hell of a way to do so and I don't recommend it to anyone. Live and learn I guess.
It took me 20 years to realize that happiness is not in money, tell me, maybe there are such people here too? And so that you would understand me correctly, I am not saying that happiness is in being poor, happiness is in being able to enjoy life, but never stop striving for something, even if something does not work out
When all this COVID pandemic started, I was scheduled to deploy to the middle east. Being in the military requires me to maintain uniform standards (including hair) our shops were closed so I was not able to even get a haircut in over 3 months, then I had to leave and check in at another command in Norfolk before departing to the middle east. I had to spend 3 weeks locked in a hotel room only able to go to the office and check in/out on certain days, those 3 weeks became 7 weeks, then I finally flew to the middle east.. only to spend another 3 weeks in total isolation in a hotel room again, not allowed to leave.... During that time, I completed over 1000 math courses (mind you I hate math) completed Security +, Certified Ethical Hacker, and watched a lot of YouTube...( Imagine spending a combined 10 weeks in isolation, then tell me how you would've reacted)......Eventually we were allowed to leave and go to our ship and commence the deployment which brought along many challenges as it was pretty hard to breathe when it is over 100 Fahrenheit and you have a mask on...trying to do labor intensive tasks...I eventually got my haircut (at that point it had been almost 5 months, I was way out of standards). My point is that I did not allow my situation to get me depressed, I found things that needed to be done and did them. ( Math is the last class before getting my college degree). (One of them I am working on more degrees, I want to get a great job when retiring from the military...) Anyway, I instead focused on things that are going to make my future better, and thanked god that I am in a position where I can still collect a full paycheck and not struggle. I understand that to others it is unfortunately not the same as they have been without work for months, I deal with this my way which is to do things that I didn't do before. I don't miss much... To me it has been pretty normal with the exception of having to wait in line for certain things and wearing the masks...This period of time that called “new normal” where a face mask is a must, maintaining social distancing and many more just to keep yourself protected. This really gives me a depressed feeling deep inside. I am tired of being this way. How are you guys dealing with this kind of situation, are you still happy?
I have been poor my whole life. It's never been an issue. My house is paid for. Both cars are paid for. We have no credit card debt. We also dont want for much, and are happier being able to spend time with each other than trying to acquire stuff. Simplicity is where its at.It took me 20 years to realize that happiness is not in money, tell me, maybe there are such people here too?

If I won the lotto, nothing would change. I wouldnt all of a sudden need a 37 room house and 18 sports cars. A Rolex and 1 Ferrari are my dream luxury items. And I'm plenty happy without them.
