About Me

  1. Oct 23 /2019 I was diagnosed with diabetes. And before that with hypertension. I still have time to turn this around. Right now my A1C is 6.9. And on meds my blood pressure is 105/75. Monday night I am joining a diet support group. I want to lose 50 pounds by next Christmas.
  2. I am very frustrated. I have been with my wife for 12 years, and in that time she refuses to eat healthy. She will reluctantly eat a little healthier, but not healthy. As a result, I end up eating lots of bad foods. My weight went up to higher then it has ever been. I have gone on diets and done well for while, but ultimately fall off because she brings bad foods into the house, cooks bad food (I cook also and cook healthy options). She will barely eat what I cook, even though a normal person would find it delicious (grilled chicken with sauteed onions, for example). I am foodie and always have been, so having bad foods around is like bringing alcohol into an alcoholics house. I may be able to resist for a while, but in the end, the food wins out. Currently, I have lost 30 lbs on my way to a 80 lbs weight loss goal and have flattened out on the diet, no longer losing. Every meal she makes is breaded, fried, pasta, lots of starches and so forth. I have tried to discuss this with her and she just gets mad, and says that "she is so tired of everyone getting on her about her eating". She will not eat any vegetables, ever. We are not young, her having just turned 40 and we had our first child 5 months ago. She is classified as obese, and I have never gotten on her about that, only my own weight. However, we are older first time parents and I want to ensure we are both here as long as possible for our son and hopefully future children. Her diet aided in a very difficult time in getting pregnant which ended up taking years. She simply will not change and I am beyond frustrated as I want to be healthy. I am tired of feeling like crap, and realize a part of this is on myself, as I have to refrain from eating the crap she brings in, but its difficult when there are few healthy options in the house when she does the shopping, or my own will power waning when she brings in unhealthy stuff after I do the shopping. I thought with our son here now, she would jump on board and be all about getting as healthy as possible, but unfortunately she has not altered her eating in any way. I just don't know what to do anymore as I find myself feeling angry a lot, whenever she prepares a meal or comes home with groceries.
  3. My partner (we are a lesbian couple) is 5'7" and 170lbs, used to be an athletic US Marine. She is very self-conscious about her weight gain the past couple years. I tell her I do not care what the scale says, and I am being genuine. I love her just the way she is and just want her to be happy. She frequently talks about wanting to go on a diet and exercise plan, but implies in order for her to go through with it, I have to do it with her. Issue is, I am 5'3" and 108 lbs and don't have much weight to lose. My metabolism is just higher than hers. I have no issue picking up my exercise game because I have been meaning to do that for awhile anyway, but I feel like it is a little unfair to feel pressured into going on a diet with her that I don't necessarily need/might not be good for an already borderline underweight person. But I also want to be as supportive as possible. What should I do? Am I being selfish?
  4. Hi everyone, I'm in a bit of a transition stage in my life at the mo and to cut a long story short I've moved in with my mum for a few months while I get money together for a house deposit and find a decent place. We have always had a strained relationship but it has gotten better in recent years. When I was growing up she was very critical of me and made daily comments about how I looked, especially my weight. I have carried a bit extra for most if my life except for a couple of stages where I lost an extreme amount of weight in extreme ways. I have recently put some weight back on and now fall into the 'overweight category which has made me feel quite bad about myself but she is treating me as if I'm morbidly obese and is making me feel so disgusted with myself and ashamed of what I see when I look in the mirror. I feel myself losing confidence, which I worked so hard to build, and slipping back into old habits like buying diet pills, skipping meals, obsessing over exercise and taking heavy detox drinks etc. I feel so terrible about myself I genuinely feel like a teenager again. Every day these past few weeks she has made negative, nasty digs about how I've "let myself go" and "need to get back on track". I know it sounds silly but I just feel so low right now and every comment from her eats away at my self-esteem a little more. I know parents should challenge you to be your best self but she ignores everything except my appearance and I only ever hear negative words come from her mouth. This can't be right??
  5. I’m starting my third week of no carbs and no sugar. I’ve been exercising 4 times a week and stayed active every day. The only carbs I eat are from vegetables. I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t lost any weight. I need to lose 10-15 pounds and I’ve seen no change even though I’ve drastically changed my diet and workout routine. Any advice?
  6. Has anyone used a diet pill that has been effective and safe?
  7. My grandma keeps saying i've put on more and more weight. Last time i checked i'd lost some but i guess i've put it all back on. She keeps saying it over and over again. Telling mum i should cut down on my intake. She said that i shouldn't eat anything else cuz i'd had enough today and that really i'd eaten to much. I feel so horrible right now. But whats worse is that if i suggest a diet she says no i'm obsessing with my weight to much. Its like she wants me to stay like this so she can continually pick on me. I feel so huge right now and i was wondering if theres a way to lose weight quickly. So that i can feel good about me and not have my nan on my case.
  8. Ok, for those who remember my recent posts about fitness, I apologize, it's just that each time I come up with a new concern or maybe I just read something new, and I figure it's easier to get replies by starting a new thread. Anyway, I'm gonna start with the details once again: I turned 19 pretty recently, but when I was almost 18 already, I weighed 245lbs, and started a very strict diet (I probably should've stopped doing earlier) and in 6 months I was at 200lbs. I stayed at 200lbs for a while, then kept on dieting, until about two months ago after visiting a nutritinist that told me that diet was no good for me anymore and that I needed more calories because I was already at a healthy weight (180-185lbs... I've been oscilating in that range ever since, depending on my activity level, so I guess the reason my weight varies is just fluids and stuff). Anyway, my problem is that I still look like crap (my butt literaly hangs... I mean, I tried on a pair of size 34 jeans, and the waist was the perfect fit, perhaps even a little loose, but they felt so tight around my butt and thighs even though they were supposed to be "relaxed fit" God, I know I'm sounding so NOT like a dude right now, I apologize, I won't do that again, and no offense meant to ANYONE, please), and I've got sort of this excess flab all around my body, but there's more of it in some specific parts of my body, and it's like fat but very light and soft and not THAT thick, I dunno what it is, but I'm guessing it's just excess body fat left, then. Anyway, since my visit to the nutritionist at the end of november, I've pretty much worked out every day. In the beginning I did weights and cardio every day, but made the humongous mistake of doing exercise in the morning with no glucose whatsoever in my blood. I fixed this and I try to eat an energy bar at least 30 minutes before working out. Then I changed my routine and started doing weights only 2 days a week (upper body on one day, and lower body on the other), so I do monday, wednesday and friday pretty intense cardio for at least 30 minutes, then weights on tuesdays and thursdays for 30 minutes as well, I guess. Now, I know results aren't supposed to be immediate, but after reading this: link removed I've started to wonder if this is my problem. I do 30 minutes of pretty intense cardio, to be honest. Perhaps that's not what I should be doing? Maybe I should be doing as that site says, and do maybe 60 minutes of not so intense aerobic activity such as power walking or jogging at a moderate pace instead of running like I do? Or is that just bogus and I just need to stick to my regime a bit longer? Please, any tips are welcome. PS: I do not aspire to ever look like one of them male super-models or hollywood actors who can afford to work out 6 hours a day or those professional athletes with 5% body fat or less. But this just can't be the best I'll ever look man! That'd just suck...
  9. I'm just wondering what type of supplements are other people currently taking. I think I may need to starting taking some, but am not sure which ones. I think I have a pretty poor diet . . . I don't really eat that much veggies or fruits. I eat chicken most of the time and rarely eat any red meat. Also, I eat a lot of carbs I don't consume a lot of dairy products either so I'm thinking maybe I need to start taking some calcium supplements? But I've heard that I need to be careful about taking vitamin supplements because if you don't know what you're doing, you might over consume some unecessary vitamins and it might actually do you more harm than good . . . any advice?? Thanks!!
  10. Kind of an embarressing post but it is all too true. And I am scared it may be interfering with my health. For starters, I normally go to sleep at about midnight and wake up to get ready for school at about 6'30 in the morning. I am not even getting seven hours of sleep normally, at 14 years old. I do not eat breakfast, I am never hungry in the morning. Instead I have two cups of coffee. I leave for school, at recess I do not have something healthy, normally either a chocolate or a cold coffee (ice coffee). At lunch I normally have a regular lunch, salad or a wrap but with that I normally have another coffee. I barely ever drink water during school. When I get home I wait until 4'30 to go up the street... And buy 2 cans of diet coke. I know, it is an appauling diet. But I believe I have unhealthy caffeine problems. Normally later that night I'll have another coffee. Perhaps partly the reason why I do not get enough sleep. This has really been nothing on my mind until lately. I have noticed I've been getting headaches, not enough sleep, drinking more and more coffee, falling behind in class, appearing cranky and sad. I don't smile much either. I've always got something sad keeping me down, I feel low for no reason and I drink caffeine during those periods of low self esteem. Although I think lo self esteem is also caused from the low self esteem depressing music I listen to? Is it? Is this going to endanger my life? 3+ Cups of coffee and diet coke a day? Is it the reason why I am always low, sad, on-the-edge and down? I don't try and drink so much caffeine. It is a habit I have been in for a long time now. Only now is it actually showing it's effects and I am scared I will die... It is completely reconfiguring my day-to-day way of life and it's scary. It's the equivelent of an adult on smokes. My parents both are addicts of alcohol and smokes, so falling into the habit of caffeine at 14 isn't something I want. Caffeine is more of a relief to the fact that I feel down so much. How can I get rid of the problems? P.S. I don't see the problems physically. I am in great shape although I do not do excercise much, I am a little under the average weight of my other friends, which was tested during a school fitness program where we had our weight measured. I just don't want to die from it, at 14.
  11. I'm an 18 - almost 19 - year old guy and, although most of my life I did only a very moderate physical activity like dance and light athletics, I had a quite stable body. Yet in the last two years I started doing more cardio, going out more to parties, etc. and probably somewhere I did a mistake and broke the balance that I had... When seen from far, I still look quite proportional, however, when it comes to intimate situations I can't hide my "breasts" (or mounds of fat in the spots where women have breasts?). And also my tummy has become huge! Now, especially these to things: breasts and tummy! How can I reduce them? Before starting to develop muscles, abs, etc. I would really like to get rid of my breasts. Should I regulate a diet? Are there any good sources on internet that are also reliable and aren't those usual programmes that you must pay for? Thank you so much!!
  12. Well...a few weeks back I posted in pregnancy forum cause I thought I *may* have been having night sickness and my period was late and I was overall feeling gross for 2 weeks. Over the past 2 weeks I've been noticing a strange smell while taking a shower...like moldy. The place we live in is BRAND new...it's only a few months old and we are the first ones to live in this unit - it's a 2 story townhome...so I didn't possibly think we could have mold growing anywhere and I assumed I just needed to wash the bathroom rugs. I also started using the air vent while taking a shower...I normally keep both doors to the bathroom open because it's a bathroom without a window and I like it fresh in there. Whenever I'd turn on the vent the smell would WORSEN. So this past Monday I went in the bathroom, sat on the toilet and happened to look up...the airducting vent in the bathroom is lower than the normal ceiling...so there's like a foot difference...well all along the ducting part of the ceiling the paint is like melting and there are huge bubbles in the paint...and some of those bubbles are starting to LEAK!! I knew right then that we indeed have a mold issue. Last night I couldn't get to sleep, just thinking about what exactly is causing this. I realized that I started smelling the mold shortly after we started using the A/C - it's obviously never been used before and it works great...but we started using it only 2-3 weeks ago. I think what is happening is that up under the wall and in the ducting something is wrong...like maybe the ducting gets too cold with the air flowing through it and then when we take showers it gets hot in there and the vapors condense on the outside of the ducting...the water condensing on the outside of the ducting is thereforeeee trapped between the ducting and the sheetrock - this is my theory at least. Seeing as how I only came to this conclusion last night I'm gonna wait till tomorrow when my BF flies back home from San Diego and we're gonna go talk to the management and have them come fix this ASAP. At least we're still renting at this point cause I wouldn't wanna pay to have this fixed. I will insist they fix this immediately because I now realize its been the cause of my ongoing sickness for the past few weeks. I haven't changed my diet yet I am constantly feeling nauseous and my headaches get worse each day. I've also experience two bouts of diziness while just sitting and not moving. All of these are commone symptoms I've read about while doing research. Found from this website: link removed My breathing has been affected lately and I've had a few bloody noses as well, plus a constant runny nose and sneezing. As soon as we get back from the management office tomorrow I will let you all know what is gonna happen...and I will probably go and visit my doctor to make sure I'm not gonna have permanent damage or anything. Just wanted to share this and see if anyone else has experienced something similar...it's so odd for a brand new house to have this issue.
  13. I was just reading the "What did you eat last" thread and it prompted something in me. My partner goes to the US (mainly LA) once or twice a year as her dad is American and she always comes back telling me she can't believe the size of the food servings there and how much take-away choice there is and how much take-away is eaten. I always thought she exaggerated and that the US diet was much like Oz (or Oz was much like US). But reading the thread going on in here it does seem like not much fruit or vegetables is eaten. Is this true? How often would you eat take-away per week? Is fruit and vegetables expensive in the US? Is takeaway food cheaper than eating fruit and vegetables?
  14. Hi all Well I have just joined a gym yet again for a year and I need info on how to get fit, I need to lost some fat of my * * * and other parts and to get healthy alos I need help with diet to eat better. I eat one meal a day at 8pm I go to bed a 1am and sleep until 7 am. I dont drink or smoke. I eat very littel during the day as I have weat aligy so bo brad, pasta beer etc. So what I need is books, web sites etc telling me how I can lose fat and tone up and get better for some one with Cilicaks.
  15. Well I've just been trying to eat healthy lately... but I have a major essay due today and the library cafeteria doesn't serve the most healthy food. And the most edible healthy option (sandwhiches) I've been having for lunch & dinner the last few days so I didn't want it again. So I had a pizza. And since I'm severely sleep deprived, also a Starbucks iced vanilla capuccino since I don't like coffee.. I've just had bagels & sandwhiches the last few days and now feel like a blown-up balloon. I've also been so busy I haven't had time to work out. My jeans already feel tighter. I guess I just feel guilty. On the side, I've also slipped in the occasional cookie/chocolate and capuccinos to keep me going... Now my whole diet has gone to hell.
  16. I quit smoking 30 days ago. since i've just replaced the smokes with ridiculous amounts of junk food. Since I quit smoking I am hungry all the t ime. I am very thin so i am not gaining weight, however, i am hungry by the hour and it is getting out of hand. I have also been depressed over a break up for a while and i am trying to heal from that too. Is this normal? Should i be eating before bedtime. I am actually 15 -20 lbs under what someone my height should weigh. I am 160 and 6'1. Today I ate two chocolate donuts, apple juice, soda, burger king, a pretzel, a hamburger fries, a slice of pizza. I know that is ridiculous and my diet is horrible. I have never been one to cook because of my schedule. What are some ways I can start to at least eat healthy without cooking 2 hour long meals. I live alone, I don't really know how to cook and I am out of the house most of the day. Any suggestions?
  17. i dont have a hard time loosing weight but keeping it off i guess i never transition from loss to maintain state i lost 80 lbs and gained back 60 - lost 40 gained 10 - lost 20 - gained back 50! i dont know what to do but this has been over the past 2 years. overall i went from a high of 186 to a low of 122 to now at 158 i think about this all day and its a source of a majority of my pain/bad feelings i dont think i have had a slice of cake or ice cream without jealousy since i was 12 there is never a time i am not embarking or ending a diet - but after the loss gain cycles it sucks up your motivation and sometimes i just let myself go for 2 weeks and binge and then freak out when a event is coming and work it off i want to maintain a healthy weight of 140 for a LONG time i just dont feel motivated anymore. also i am all out of diets and fed up of doing it right and yo yoing on the "doing it the right way" programme. i guess i need motivation more than anything since i already know i am capable of loosing weight the right way! does anyone know of good diet progress sites or forums that they belong to or can recommend.
  18. I have had lots of help from you all over the last few months, I just wanted to thank you all, and post this little update on what I am doing about my depression. I have stopped being so forward, and looking for a new g/f. At the end of the day its easier to get on with people when you dont have a neon sign above your head saying "desperate" lol I have changed my diet, need to lose 3 stone, and i am getting info from gyms, just to buff myself up a bit. Its a shame that the way you look is so important, but a good personality will take you only so far, so why not eh? I have stopped talking to a lot of people who are bad to me, people who upset me or use me! Hey, i have even started talking to my ex. Looks like she still loves me so much, but i must admit i am worried about what she might do to me emotionally, as she put me in therapy after our relationship ended in January. I am also doing well at work, looks like a promotion is on the cards in the new year! Anyway thanks to all again! Any advice is welcome on me as i stand. Ben
  19. Ok, I've lost some weight, and even though I still don't feel or look the way I'd like to look (haven't reached my target), I feel really good. The thing is, I dunno if I've also lost some muscle mass. I mean, I've been at it since like september 05, then stuck to it seriously and in like december I straggled a little bit, but I successfully maintained my weight, though. But since back then I haven't really worked out (I used to run, but I didn't lift, though). I've done some pushups here and there (sometimed I'd do 50+ every other day for 3 weeks, but then I'd stop, just to start over again). And well, before I lost the weight I certainly couldn't do 30 pushups in one set, but now I can (I dunno if it's just b/c I'm lighter, or if I've conserved or even gained strength). And I tried lifting a couple of days ago, and I still could do the same amount of weight. But the thing is that my arms look so much... skinier, I thought maybe I lost muscular mass, or maybe I just lost a lot of fat... I dunno. I've lost well over 40 lbs, and I'm looking to lose about 15 more to reach a healthy weight... So, I guess all I'm asking is that since I wanna keep going with my diet, isn't there like a way to get stronger and maybe look a little more built (not necesarily big, just... I dunno, not all skinny. I dunno, I'm not THAT skinny, by nature, but I would very much like to look a little bit more built) while doing the running and the diet? Btw, I didn't get the diet off of a book, and I certainly didn't make it up. It was my doctor, and I think he knows what he's doing, cause it's worked for me...
  20. Hi guys, Since about saturday afternoon my leg muscles, particularly my calves, have been sore, and I can't fgure out the reason why. I usually walk about 1.5 miles each way to work and back every day, and have been doing so for the past two months, so i like to think my legs are in pretty good shape. I don't think I've changed anything recently, with the exception of my diet slightly (a result of getting to the end of the month and waiting for the next paycheck). Anybody experience this before? Anyone know of a good treatment for sore muscles? Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks, Mtastic
  21. Okay some Im going on the alkaline diet hopefully it will work! Anywaze I dont like going to gym... Mostly cuz I would rather work out at home. I was thinking ya know like mon, tues, wen.. yoga and areboics. Then the other days like a cardio video and the ball thing or weights. But everyday jogging. What are some good areobics, cardio videos? any ideas are helpfull. Also this will sound strange but see I want to loose weight but not my butt lol. I like it! What should I do to avoid getting a flat a**? Thanks!
  22. I've always had weight issues. When I was younger, I was always about twenty pounds over weight, because I didn't exercise and I didn't know how to eat right. In high school I started doing a little bit of aerobics every now and then, but I was always an emotional eater and somewhat of a binger. In college, I gained the typical freshman fifteen. I am five eight with a pretty big frame (my grandma was six feet, my grandpa was six four, my dad is six two) and at my heaviest I was 180. After freshman year, I started jogging two miles every other day and over that summer I dropped twenty pounds. All through college I fluctuated as I found different fad diets to go through--atkins, the zone, I tried everything. I even tried fasting on the lemonade diet to 'detox', and I've done that a couple of times over the past few years. Over the past year, my eating issues and new kinds of stresses and worries assisted in my development of bulimia. I've always been a binger, and last year I started purging. I've been working on this issue in therapy, so I'm not in immediate danger, and I've managed to curb the binging and purging this year. Right now, I'm in a mode of 'no more dieting!' But I can't seem to get the results I want. I run four miles four times a week. I do yoga twice a week and weight endurance classes with dumbells and steps twice a week. I eat a lot of food because I get really hungry throughout the day, and I'm a waitress so I'm always around food. Right now I'm at 153 pounds, and I have a lot of belly fat, thigh fat, and butt fat. Maybe not a lot, maybe it's in my head, but the fact is, I want a super rock hard amazing body. I know that's technically unrealistic, but why? Why can't I figure out how to train my body so that it's incredible? I have the will and the determination, but every time I start feeling this way, I get the urge to go on Atkins to drop a quick ten pounds of water weight just so I don't feel so exhausted over my efforts, and I just want someone to give me some advice. How long does it take to lose weight the 'right' way? Is a diet like atkins the only way I'll be able to see my muscle definintion, because it's there. I'm super strong. I just have fat that I can't seem to get rid of. When I tell people I think I'm fat, they say I'm crazy and that I'm slender. But I've seen myself in a bikini and I know what it is to look great in a bikini, and I don't. So what am I supposed to do? Have I screwed up my metabolism with the fasting and the occasional atkins and the stress of trying to find a successful and maintainable plan? Do people with eating disorders really have distorted body image? I would love some insight. Thanks.
  23. Can anyone recommend a good diet i need to loose about 60lbs...and just need a few tips i have never been this big.and i hate it i have always been skinny!!!
  24. So, i've been thinking. I post here a lot, most of which end up just musings rants, and like others, proclamations of love. (GOD I STILL THINK ABOUT HER) Anyway, my ex was a big health nut, and a lot of our arguments stemmed from me resisting her suggestions to lead a healthier life, share a better life with her yada yada yada. And i was thinking. I wanted to share a similar life with her but on my own pace. WHen we broke up, i started realizing a lot of what she wanted/ was doing, is something that I also am really curious to do. So i am deciding to shed off a bit of my old ways. Listen to her (and other people) and do better. I know it's late. She's gone for good. And it was great. we had a good run, but we were too different, etc etc etc. Not going to wallow on it on this post. this is about change! Anyway, i started a few things. My friend calls it the Spaghetti trick. Throw a bunch of things on the wall and see what sticks. Physical Health: 1) bought a used but really nice road bike. I've always liked riding and decided to ride. So far, i've been good with the time i wake up and do a decent ride time in the morning. If I don't i do several pull ups at home, and a quick set with the kettlebells. 2) yoga: I scheduled and purchased a month of unlimited yoga classes. I kinda feel if my ex and a bunch of other people swear by it, 30.00 a month unlimited classes don't sound too bad to try it out. 3) Diet: I've been good with my diet, or at least better. I've been practicing portion control hahaha. Also, i've been choosing the kind of food i eat (more veggies) etc. I do not intend to follow some restrictive diet (Mmmm pork) but i think at least watching and cutting down on processed foods can help. I'm trying to get my friends to do a 3 day juice cleanse with me, but that'll take a little bit of convincing. Mental Health: 1) i signed up for a life coach (funny she did this too) and spoke with a nutritionist to sign up on goals for healthy living. 2) I scheduled sessions with a therapist (too bad, i can't schedule anything sooner coz of insurances) in October. I just want to top my mental health off, see what went wrong with my previous relationships and see what direction i want to do with my life. I don't want to live for my relationships but rather, i want to start to live for myself instead of basing my life direction from my relationships. 3) i signed up for the local community college for beginner classes in ASL (american sign). I already have a master's degree and just kinda want to know and learn new things. I was looking into other classes like computers but none fit my current work schedule. 4) i found out that the buddhist temple is 2 blocks away from my work and they give free meditation classes on wendsdays. When my schedule clears up, i'm definitely gonna take advantage of that. 5) i also started doing little terrariums. I think it's great. Little pots with little greens and my own version of models (i do star wars). It's pretty dope. Social life 1) i'm really trying to spend more time with my friends and family. That's it here. 2) i play for a local pool league and it's something i really want to keep going. Pool has been part of my childhood and it keeps me grounded. 3) i also dabble in photography. Like, i don't have any special processing programs but my DSLR and instagram are sufficient as of now. It gets me out of the house and into places i can take cool shots. GET ALL THE PUPPY CUDDLES. I've dogs so, keeping them company and happy makes me happy. Ex girlfriend who? HAHAH. just kidding. She's cool.
  25. I'm trying to find the perfect meal plan that will give me the energy to study but also a meal plan that won't put fat on my abs. Right now I'm 140lbs at 5"2, and I have a little fat that I'd like to get rid of on my stomach. I've had a hard looking body before, but that was back when I drank protein shakes, ate lots of meat, and lifted weights. That diet was just too expensive when you throw in the chicken and beef and protein shakes you have to buy. Cooking the meals takes a lot of time that I don't have. I run 5 miles, 5 times a week and I also do 100 situps before I run, and I try to keep a healthy diet but temptation gets to me. I only buy Amy's microwavable dinners and Boca breakfast burrito's. For lunch, I'll try to have a can of chicken salad with crackers. I only drink water and tea. When I'm getting tired during my studying or reading, I'll have tea and soup. Its just sometimes when I'm feeling the craving I'll buy mocha's and danishes or crouscants. For instance, I ate chocalate for Valentine's Day. On a workday, I'll have rice for lunch and egg drop soup with rice for dinner.
