    The best thing you can do is go to a local restaurant, not a fast food place, and ask the servers/bartender where the good restaurants are. Most people in the food service industry know whats good in their area. Dont trust tour guides. Where i live i know that certain restaurants pay them off to advertise to tourists but no local would be caught dead eating there.

  • Archibald Kiehn Reply

    Yeah. But now you assume me being ignorant. I am well aware of how the meat industry works. My family hunts, so I have not killed animals but I have helped with butchering. We also buy our meat from farms with grass fed cattle. I am not against the killing of animals for food. But I am strongly against torturing them, no matter if the ritual is religious or just cultural. Besides, compared to the US, the meat industry in Sweden is harder regulated.

  • Liana O'Reilly Reply

    Hi! Here's an article we recently published about the "low-fat" food and beverage industry - where the reduction of animal based fats in foods and drinks often comes at a cost of additional sugars. We are hopefully trying to help everyone become a little more aware of whats in their foods, and so we also provided some more information on what to look for with other Chinese products. Hope some people find it useful, and if you do - please consider subscribing to the WeChat account to get more relevant information.

    Hunting can't be pinned down to one meaning. There are many types of hunting. There is hunting for food, hunting to control animal population, hunting for safety-related reasons, hunting for personal gain and hunting for the fun of it. What is what, and when do we draw a line? Why would hunting be worse than the state of the meat industry? I think it's not possible to give one simple opinion if you want to be consistent.

    >Calories, portions, macros. Americans are constantly lied to by the food and diet industry and it needs to stop. They're killing us. Ironic that I wouldn't be surprised to see this exact same language on an FA blog, but instead of the reaction of >What we need is comprehensive, science based nutrition education at every stage of life. they would prefer to convince themselves that nothing can be done. Which is to say, while I'm sure the HAES people would still be around without the diet industry, I think their cause has been fueled by it. They are killing us through misinformation.

  • Clement Bartell Reply

    1. Even if let's say the word wouldn't be murder, you wouldn't see it as wrong? 2. Then why do you support the meat industry? 3. Killing isn't illegal in war. Killing is illegal without a hunting license (and even then you have specific animals, rules, etc.) 4. I can't really argue since that's just your point of view. 5. That's cool with me? I mean, if you nothing to eat then yes you can use meat. But most of us in the civilised world do not have a need to kill for food.

    I agree!! "Diet" is a thing you go on to lose a few pounds before you go back to doing exactly what you did to get fat. What we need is comprehensive, science based nutrition education at every stage of life. Calories, portions, macros. Americans are constantly lied to by the food and diet industry and it needs to stop. They're killing us.

    Yes, sadly. US bee keepers lose about half of their hives each winter, and have to replace them. This is bad, really bad, as over 70% of our food crops require bee pollination. Too many pesticides on crops is part of the issue. And lately, two states have sprayed for zika mosquitos, killing of millions of bees.

  • Merlin Hessel Reply

    I'm sorry, but I don't agree with your view point, I fully accept and respect your moral obligation to not kill animals, but I do not understand why you would do this to your pet, which if given the choice they would eat meat. If you do not want to support the pet food industry I understand, and there are other options. I think you should feed your dog a mix of meat and vegetables, because they need this combination of nutrients. I accept that you may disagree with my view point, so talk to your vet about it, because they know whats best

  • Cindy Klocko Reply

    >Do you eat meat? Yes. >Do you think it's morally wrong to eat meat? Absolutely not. Violence/murder for food exists throughout the animal kingdom; it's a naive and isolated bourgeois whine to refuse to eat it. >What do you think about the situation of the meat industry? I support it because it feeds the planet, providing necessary nutrients.

    But the difference is that the food industry here uses those methods to meet increasingly growing demands, whereas whaling in Japan is used to satisfy an influential minority that only shrinks with every new generation. You ask the US government to enforce better treatment of livestock, and they'd probably say that those mass farming methods are necessary to meet demand (not saying that's true). You ask the Japanese government to stop killing whales and they'll tell you it's a cultural tradition. There's a significant difference in how entangled the meat industry is with Americans, and how entangled the whaling industry is with the Japanese. It's only an influential minority in Japan that wants to continue consuming whale meat.

    Well, I certainly applaud anyone wanting to do a hundred pushups, but take it from this old gym rat, I've spent my entire adult life in the gym, and a program like this one can do more harm than good. If you only train one part of your body (and that's all a single exercise like pushups is going to do for you), you're setting yourself up for injuries down the road. I've seen it a hundred times. It's like putting a powerful engine in a stock Toyota Tercel. What will you accomplish? You'll blow out the drive train, the clutch, the transmission, etc., because those factory parts aren't designed to handle the power of an engine much more powerful than the factory installed engine. Push-ups basically only train the chest muscles and to some extent, the triceps. What you really want to do is train your entire body, all the major muscle groups (chest, back, abdomen, legs, shoulders and arms) at the same time, over the course of a workout. And don't forget your cardiovascular work! I'm proud of you guys wanting to do this. Three cheers! Falling in love with exercise, eating right, etc., is one of the greatest things you can do for yourself. And you WILL fall in love with it if you can just force yourself to stick with it a year or two and experience the amazing progress you'll make. But do it right, okay? My advice, find a good gym, with qualified trainers who will design your programs for you (especially in the beginning, until you get the hang of it yourself) and guide you in your quest for physical fitness. Thirty to 45 minutes a day, three days a week, is all you'll ever need to do (I refuse to believe anyone is so busy that he or she cannot make time for that, especially considering how important it is). And don't worry about being embarrassed or not being in shape the first time you walk into the gym. You have to start somewhere and almost every one of us were there ourselves at one time. So no one will say anything to you and very, very quickly you will progress way beyond that stage anyway. Now get out there and do it! :-)

    So your a fattie then. No surprise there. The fact your brain is addled with fat deposits explains why it does not function properly. I shall make allowances in future. Hallefuckingeullah!!! You now concede she did actually go to his door on the fateful day. You concede therefore that Avery's version of events is incorrect. You need to let all your sycophants know about this damascene conversion and start to bring them into the light. Wonders will never cease. With my help there may be the tiniest bit of hope yet for you. So at least we agree that she knocked on the door. What about your second point. Do you seriously believe Avery didn't invite her in for an afternoon of sex? Of course he did. After all he thinks he's as good looking as Brad Pitt. So lets accept that he invited her in. She refused as she thought he resembled an umpa lumpa more than Brad Pitt. He therefore dragged her in and the rest is history. Deal with it fattie.

    It's just a saying, you can either find inspiration in it or you can be pessimistic and see it as a blanket statement. I choose inspiration. I've been doing my own thing for 2 years now after working in the food service industry for over 10 years. Is it a lot of hard work? Sure. Could I go broke and be back at square one tomorrow? Absolutely, but everyday I wake up and choose to do what I do because It's what I want. Life is just a series of choices.

    I feel like everyone should work in a call centre, retail or the food industry for a while when they first start working. It's only when you've worked there do you realise what some of them have to put up with.

    Do what you love. Unless you love cooking. Cause you'll end up hating what you love. Cooking is for you, friends, family, so on. Not a skill to be sold to the lowest bidder. Its a beautiful thing, putting all your hard work and love and emotion into a dish for you and your loved one's to eat, then you get to enjoy everyone eating what you made. Its a circle of love and appreciation. You can't do that in the food industry. It's not cooking. Its building food. I don't want to build someone else's dishes. I want to cook my own.

    Maybe you should look it up and find out? Because the only milk that is intended for humans is human milk. Cows milk is for baby cows. Dairy milk is cow breast milk. It's disgusting that anyone would even want it, let alone the way it is literally *forced* on us by the food industry. You are entitled to your opinion, and I am entitled to mine. Before domestication, people lived off what they could hunt/forage. Killing animals was harder, but animal fats and meat etc is extremely calorie dense. The concept of being vegan is pretty new. Food is really easy to get now, it would be unnecessary to be vegan in times of scarcity. Animal agriculture is a disgustingly massive industry and veganism grew out of vegetarian awareness of how industrialization was treating animals and the planet. The fears of those early vegetarians (including Ghandi) have spiralled completely out of control.

    Other option: Have a threshold. Any tabs that have over a $25 tab, ordered food, OR have had 4 drinks, their tip gets split. Personally, your method is my preferred method, but this is also an option. At the place I'm at now we do exactly what you described. It's good because you're never keeping on or cutting the mid to make more money. It's bad because we have a nice industry rush at about 11pm-2am, so the closer kind of gets screwed, but not really.

  • Chester Weimann Reply

    Animals kill animals so how is us killing animals for food any different? Meat is not the problem. The problem is how we raise and keep our livestock. The lack of humane practices in the industry is the problem. Everything dies so why not use what they leave behind? Sustainability is the name of the game.

    "Docs will probably say it's not from the animal products because they know nothing about nutrition and follow the federal governments food guide that is sponsored by the meat, dairy, egg and fish industry. But I know it's animal products is the reason." Oh god... Please listen to your doctors, although you think you are smarter than them, you are not. They are among the most educated people on the planet and has been studying for longer than you've been alive. You have no clue what caused your cancer, you probably don't even know what a cancer is or why they are formed. Your doctors do.

    >That's not a reasonable answer. Why do you think people go to McDonald's often? It's not the food, **it's mostly the cost**. It's dirt cheap and bad for you, sure, but that's the option they have. No it's not, it's the convenience due to laziness. If you buy staple ingredients and actually cook food you'll spend about half what you would at McDonalds for a healthier and more complete meal. Also, the meat industry is propped up by government subsidy because they know the average consumer can't afford what meat really costs. It's a perpetual bullshit bailout solely in the name of corporate profit.

  • Johnnie Schimmel Reply

    I'm with you on the "do what you love" sentiment, but I disagree *strongly* on your last point regarding age. My mother is a chef and I've been around the food industry my whole life. She thinks there is a huge ageism problem in the industry -- nobody wants to hire a 55 year old woman despite her extensive resume, and they would much rather hire a young "up and coming" chef. The more experience she gets, the HARDER it is to find work. Also, it's a very physically demanding career, and the older you get the more difficult that becomes. Office jobs are filled with 60+ year olds.

    The stuff I've seen about beekeping isn't friendly. Firstly, the whole honey business runs on exploitation. Bees make honey as food for themselves, not human, not friendly yellow bears, THEMSELVES. Only for us to replace it with a shitty replacement of sugar water. Worker bees only make honey when the queen is in the hive. How do you ensure the queen is always in the hive to get maximum profit? You pull off her wings. Yes, it is a real practise. You immobilise the queen bee by doing the cruel thing young kids do to flies. Often bees are only given one type of plant to pollinate when done on mass scale, and monoculture is NOT good. Queen bees are transported across countries and states, which takes many days and they often die. If you value veganism as preventing your funding of exploitation and cruelty to animals, you won't fund the honey industry. It does not save the bees, its killing them.

    I think veganism is perfectly valid, and if you're really able to stick with it you have more resolve than I do. I totally sympathize with the concerns about the modern meat and dairy industry, although I would argue that the farming industry is no better. That said, I feel like food is so personal that it's never okay to tell someone how they should be eating, and the evangelical vegans put a bad taste in my mouth. But people who are just doing what they think is best? Not my business and power to you. But please don't feed cats vegan. They'll go blind and die.

    the "no preservatives or anything" IS key to me. I'd prefer eating home made pastries using butter, some proper flour, some good cocoa or other ingredients rather than meat from god knows where and raised under god knows what conditions. And I'm all for an animal based diet (doesn't mean boat loads of meat though). I agree with many, many points made [here by a fellow Dr](http://www.nofructose.com/2014/12/19/hospital-food-is-crap-and-its-killing-my-patients-and-what-to-do-about-it/). We aren't so-called nutrition experts as he correctly reminds it, which I believe gives us a better impartiality when it comes to the big picture of what is healthy and what's not.

You see, because the Democratic party-they always control the black people; it's a plantation. As long as they're on the mammary gland of America, sucking at their food stamps, getting their welfare >#**and they're not dreaming for the stars**. >And society is killing that dream. They're killing that dream with this globalism. >**To hell with globalism**. If there are any #NeverTrump cucks or Hill shills lurking, remember this interview in November. This is the sentiment people will be taking to the voting booth.

    There's a great programme on Netflix on how bad sugar is for you and that it's making children fat and diabetic in the US. It also shows how the sugar companies in America strong arm the world health organisation and government in to not publishing reports recommending that people's daily intake of sugar is reduced. We've been brainwashed in to thinking fast food is convenient and cheaper than cooking. Then there's he whole 'eating healthy is so hard and expensive' argument. Frozen veg is SO SO cheap! Keep it up OP as fast food and soda is slowing killing the population. Our relationship with food needs to change!

    So I'm home a lot more now than my girlfriend, so I do a bit of clean up (we're both in the food industry, and like coming up with new and different approaches to recipes). I do a lot of the clean up the morning after, so what I do is smoke a ffffffaaaaty bowl and just tackle it. I just blast some music and go. Normally I get so lost in thought I just go autopilot and an hour later it's done. Then I can fuck off for like 3 hours xD

    So if I make a thing, how is that zero-sum? As soon as I sell it, I introduced value into the market, in which that value was not accounted for before. How is growing corn zero-sum? How is that accountant doing paperless math on that computer zero-sum? What about the service industry? What about all the worlds around us with finite resources? What you aren't even thinking about is the market defining the availability of the item and representing a true value for it if it's extremely limited. That product, in a socialist system, would just disappear, because there is nothing to tell you otherwise. It's why we end up with bread lines. "Buffalo? Bah, let's just keep on killing them 'til they are extinct and worry about another food source later."

    Do you not understand the concept of inflation? Regarding the "back in my day it cost half that". It is unlikely the price of mcdonald's food has outpaced inflation. And you're always welcome to take your consumption elsewhere. McDonald's isn't a monopoly in the fast food industry. They charge you more because it results in them earning more, and that's what they're *supposed* to do.

    "The Art of Simple Food" by Alice Waters is good as well. I would also highly recommend Gordon Ramsay's video season, "Ultimate Cookery Course".

    This is somewhat discussed in an anime, I think in Attack on Titan. It had me thinking. The top of the food chain is us, so what will happen if there will be species that replaces us which is the Titans. Titans only eat humans but we, humans, don't know why. It is just like the animals that we kill for food. The animals don't know why we are killing them.

    Nothing will change until we regulate the food industry( and stop subsidizing cheap empty calories through our farm subsidies). They know how to make food that is addictive and they have gotten a lot of us hooked. They don't care that their food is killing us, but only about profits. Some of us, like you and I, choose to avoid this toxic processed food but most will not and the healthcare bills will continue to rise until something is done.

    In the US: cook. It's not that hard, despite what the food industry wants you to think. You should know how to use a knife and prep some simple meals. It's the healthy thing to do and it saves you money!

    Who in their right mind would ever think it's a good idea to argue *food* with Gordon fucking Ramsay.

    They should atleast give us some food for killing people. There is no point in fighting when another person who didn't have to tank will finish you off after you kill your target.

    No fucking shit it's fast food. What do you expect some 5 star quality meal from Gordon Ramsay?

    That's a very interesting remark, I've never thought twice about saying "team got killed" etc. Perhaps the difference in dissonance is a result of us killing things all the time like our food, or bugs in our homes. We don't really rape animals, we just rape other humans.
