"With the advent of so many obesity-related shows (e.g. Ruby, Biggest Loser, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, More to Love, Dance Your Ass Off, Making the Curve, One Big Happy Family, etc.), many wonder if it's right to turn being overweight or obese into entertainment. Are these shows empowering or exploiting people?"
Thanks for the nice replies! Yes, we are doing a bit of reorganization in the Moderator world here, as I'm sure everyone has noticed with all the posts just like this was plastered all over the place!
We're always striving to improve our communities for all of our wonderful members, and these moves will help us ramp up for some initiatives that we're looking forward to starting! It's all about you, Judy!!
Barb, I would love to see that headline, but you guys don't have to be preggos to come say Hi! LOL You might have questions come up about digestion issues where you can come visit me on that board.
Or I'm sure all of have teeth, so you can come ask your Oral Health questions on that board. (I heard the Expert is awesome!)
I will miss being your Mod, but I will be checking in to see how everyone's doing on their journey as well as letting you know how I'm doing on mine. You're not rid of me yet!
Plus, I have to come back to support our fanatical football addiction, Judy! I'll just be happy if they get rid of Cutler!
Welcome to the Diet Community and thanks for asking about this. I'm not sure if it would fall under the same thing, but I had someone ask a similar question on the Fitness & Exercise Community.
They asked about a metal taste after working out and Rich Weil, our expert, gave a good explanation. Check it out and see if it helps. He might even have another answer for you if you ask on that board, too.
Did that help? I hope you come back to let us know and we see you often!
Welcome to the Diet Community and thanks for asking about the difference between grapeseed and olive oil. I hadn't heard much about grapeseed oil, but did a little poking around to find a couple articles of interest.
Food & Cooking Expert, Ellen Magee, took a nutritional look at 22 types of fats and oils and chose the healthiest (and tastiest) oils, spreads, and shortenings in this article, Rating the Cooking Fats.
And in this interview, Chef Michel Nischan tells us when it comes to healthier cooking with oils, preference depends on what and how you're cooking, as well as your taste preference:
"Use the right oil or fat at the right time...Olive oil is healthy for your heart, but degrades when used to sauté foods at high temperatures".
I'm sure our community members will jump in here soon with their tips. I would also encourage you to ask our Food & Cooking Community your question, too.
Please let us know what else you find out. I hope you come back and we see lots more from you on the Diet Community! View Thread
