Let Me Ask You a Question – 4/25/18


Let me ask you a question:

Is it important to you to watch what you eat and live a healthy life?  If not, should it be?  And if it should be, then why don’t you?

  1. It is, yes. Especially as I get older. Having kids made me change a lot of things, Not the least of which was being able to be there for them as long as possible, and to be able to keep up with their boundless energy. Diet, exercise, maintaining high activity levels. It’s amazing how motivating having newfound responsibility can be. 😃

      • As in, I don’t cut anything out. So for example saying being healthy means less meat, less carbs that sort of thing, which is what I took to being healthy. I don’t monitor what I eat. If I fancy eating an Easter egg, I will eat it, if I fancy a Steak cooked raw with a stack load of butter over it, I will have that as well, but also if I want an apple, I will eat an apple. I love spinach, so if I can get that in a dish I will do

      • yes, for me personally, I think especially as a parent you shouldn’t be focused on food, I think bad habits are created in early childhood and those can be hard to break. Hopefully when my son leaves he will be able to cook at least 5 basic meals that are tasty but healthy.

        However I say that as a parent to a non fussy child, my opinion might be very different if he was a fussy eater or having difficulties with texture

  2. It’s extremely important for me. In my blog, I’ve written about how I watched my dad and my mother-in-law get sick and die of diabetes-related complications, and since the disease runs in my family, I’m determined not to let it get to me. I’m not too radical, though. I don’t demand organic, gluten-free, low-carb, keto, paleo, vegan, non-GMO food, but I do avoid eating junk. I don’t smoke or take drugs either. Also, I work out six times a week. I want to be a healthy mom for my kids, and I want to be able to hold my grandchildren and hopefully my great-grandchildren too, so that’s why I try to have a healthy lifestyle.

  3. Very important, Danny. Especially with MS causing swallowing problems. I watch each morsel, have to weigh whether or not it is worth it to attempt to eat the stuff that isn’t really good for me and take the chance of strangling on something that is tasty but potentially not all that good for me, or saving the strangling moments for the nourishment derived from the stuff that is actually good for me. So, I take the high road, eat fresh fruit and veggies in season, limit the bad stuff and hold my weight at the present limit, which is the recommended weight for my age and height. Feel better, look better and life goes on with occasional side trips into the chocolate box or the home made ice cream freezer.

  4. Yes. It is important. I have always been aware of what I ate and I have always made a great effort to lead a healthy life. However….there are no guarantees. I still have had health problems ( cancer and systemic scleroderma) BUT….I have recovered and survived and perhaps if I had gone into those health problems, both life threatening, with poor health due to abusing my health then I might not have come through as well as I did. There are no guarantees in life but I believe it is my responsibility to do the best I can to look after my body and my mind.

  5. Yes, it definitely is and I was extremely slack with this one over the last 12 months. I have picked up on better eating habits and I’m literally fighting my way back into my standard workout routine (which I also have neglected). And while it’s super hard to get back into the workout routine (I am SO sore) I already feel so much better.

  6. Yes. I was raised on traditional Mediterranean Diet and I still practice this until this day. It has helped me through my life so I am sticking to it and everything else does not taste right to me. 😉

  7. Yes, it’s very important to me. My husband and I are trying to lose a few pounds, so we’re really watching what we eat. It’s all about the choices. And not indulging in late night snacks… unless it’s a piece of fruit or something healthy 🙂

  8. Yes. Yes, as long as you don’t obsess over it and it cause alienation between you and others. So, I guess that last question doesn’t apply to me directly. But I would say we all should respect the house we call a body and realize early on that there are consequences for not keeping a reasonably clean and orderly house; and once a house begins to decay, there is only so much that can be done to repair it. 😕
