please don't demonise starch (carbs) too much is it necessary for health too . Our elders need to go back to eating their traditional ways , not so much fried and sweet foods , back in the day all that stuff was restricted to special occasions not every weekend.

I'm not demonizing them. I just don't think we need as much as we usually have these days.

Thing with our (even recent) ancestors is that they worked hard, and I mean HARD compared to us now. So their energy expenditure was infinitely higher than ours. We do a fraction of the physical exertions they did but eat even more than them, and often unhealthy processed foods/snacks too....do the math

preaching to the choir ... I don't even fry paneer just popit in white into the tarkda and let it take on the flavours , since I started that all my family's females started doing the same , only exception is if I make paneer on the spot from milk (too soft) then I tried to brown it with the onions . We rarely eat anything fried usually once in a blue moon...kids and hubby appreciate it more and their skin and waistlines stay good. When we go non-traditional to our ancestors diet it does a number on our systems ...it's been studied scientifically and confirmed that returning to our cuisines makes good nutritional and digestive sense . Besides who wants to look and be as slow as the average American ?

That's the thing though. I've experimented with a good few diets now. (I'm doing another vege one as we speak). I don't think fats are that bad from my experience. I've tried a LCHF (low carb high fat) diet and surprisingly didn't put on loads of weight and wasn't sluggish. Mind you I trained hard as hell during it. When I up carbs, my tidh goes into jaloos mode.

Our native diet is relatively high fat with all the dairy. I never saw my grandparents eat more than two rotis (3 sometimes maybe) and they grafted hardcore, ate butter, keeo and yogurt all the time.

In the end I guess we have to experiment and find what best suits our own unique biology.

but if you think about it buffalo milk is so rich they can literally scoop the makhan out by the handful and the milk is still quite protein rich , I worked out that semi milk is about the equivalent but because the milk is not raw and is also homogenised as standard these days the quality is not comparable . Trying to find raw milk dairy delivery else I may just skip the thing and stick with nuts and seed 'mylks' homemade cos the the commercial stuff is also low nutrition.

I did high carb low fat vegan and dropped eighty pounds in 6 months , no drop in energy levels ...need to restart the diet again I slipped back into the old patterns of eating and have gained back some but not the majority . I seem to be a new setpoint ...so I guess this is the best way to reset it for me .

growing up as a kid I didn't know a single person who was asthmatic or nut allergic it seems to be the minimum illness level now in most kids that plus eczema

convinced it is the increased vaccine to the littlies because that is the only major change between our gen and theirs. I would say skip the vaccines and just boost natural immunity through good nutrition and hygiene (without antibacterials) then our kids will be the most healthy

Is that correct and not a typo? 80 pounds is like 36 kg. That's crazy. It took me 1 year of hardcore training to get my nephew to lose just 10 kg!!

Did you train, or just diet?

I was doing low strain brisk walking , about an hour a day then two as I dropped the weight (did cancer research half marathon), not a typo ...because I stopped dairy, grains and got my carbs from fruits and non starchy veggies plus no oils just fat from things like avocado or nuts, seeds . It dropped easy my face and skin looked great, had loads of energy, no bad breath in mornings or BO, always been good on BM front but after the intial clearout of toxins from the system no bad smells. high carb low fat vegan is really great for cutting , you will stay hydrated without too much effort too , recovery after weights is quicker too. I know it sounds crazy but it is the real deal look at rawfoodbootcamp.com these are some of the ladies I did it with ...they have photos before and after

    • Problem now is that the real facists now call themselves anti-fascists.  You are nice guy Sukh but I feel that you are quite naive.  You need to look at where the violence is coming from and who is shutting down free speech. Ironically it is likes of Tommy Robinson who is on the receiving end of the quote you have mentioned above. If you have a chance please see this link, it may explain what may have happened to you:  
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji Lol, I was talking about the guru gayatri mantra that is in JAAP SAHIB (Gobinday Mukunday Udaaray Apaaray Hariang Kariang Nirnamay Akamay). Not the vedic om bhur bavaha swaha one. Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Try to analyze and smajaa ur mind. Like why do you like her mind? Is it because shes pretty? Well beauty fades and we all become old and ugly. So beauty is just a trap and mind u should be ashamed to have fallen for such a simple trick of maya. As that beauty is really just skin, bones, hair, blood, and guts arranged in a certain way to trick us. And if we really must admire beauty, why not admire the one who designed the beautiful mountains, streams, rivers, which have no parallel. The beautiful One from which all creation comes from, Waheguru Is it because of her good qualities? Then love the qualities not the person they adorn. Try to adopt those good qualities yourself. Because God is the source, he is all Goodness, so all good qualities flow from him. So imagine how beautiful, how Good waheguru is! The one who created all the goodness in the world.only he is worthy of falling in love. As that love will purify us and make us as Great, Good, and beautiful as waheguru is.  Is it because she is amritdhari? In that case thank the guru who accepted all of us mere humans and made us singhs and kaurs. He trusted us to be the best khalsa, to not be like other mere humans, engrossed in worldly things. Instead compete with the girl for the gurus affection. If she wears a dastaar, you wear a dumalla. Is she does nitnem, u do nitnem plus simran. If she wakes up at 4am, u wake up at 3am. You know ur mind is engrossed in thinking of her, use that to make urself a better sikh. Start working out, do more paath and simran. Do ardaas to guruji to make you a true sikh, who gets over this crush.
    • Also will you be able to say No to the American and wat explanation will you give? And will you be able to forget him completely,  if married to the other guy? Also to make a hard choice, you should  write down the pros and cons of each choice . Then say if i remove all the cons of the Canadian guy, like if he took amrit, will that convince me? If not, then it means ur heart is already set on the other. Also if the american moved to canada, will that be enough to convince you he's the one without a doubt? If not, then maybe consider the other person   
    • When we become too relaxed, we fall asleep. If we have been sitting down too long. Blood starts collecting in our legs and doesnt flow as fasr, so we dont get enough oxygen. So move around. Maybe do mool mantar standing up with folded hands, like an ardaas, begging for darshan. Most importantly, concentrate on the meanings. Also u can try to do simran in bir asan position that the panj pyare take. Or after like 15 mins. Do 5 jumping jacks, then sit down and start doin simran again. Also try to put some emotion into it, like I am calling out to God, who is my beloved, and I have been forcefully seperated from him. And without my origin, i am dry and worthless. And whats even worse, in maya i have forgotten who God is, and that I was seperated from him.  You can also try to do simran loudly. Also try to say waheguru with each breath.  Also keep switching positions or ways of doing simran, so u dont fall asleep
