I really don't like fish, but love other seafood: crab, shrimp, lobster, scallops ...

But not the chewy gross stuff like oysters, clams (other than clam chowder), mussels.

Thora, do you ever go to Fisherman's Terminal when you're in Seattle?

Yeah, the chewy stuff is pretty gross.

No, I don't think I've ever been down there before...

Agreed. I love clam chowder broth, but not the clams themselves. I just hate having to do that much chewing.

Speaking of food, I think I've become a total sugar addict lately. Ever since the holidays, which involved one of the largest periods of consistent sugar consumption in my life, I've been craving sugar constantly, and my whole appetite has been screwed up for weeks. It's not so bad that I'm shaking without it or anything, but I need to break this before it gets any worse. Thankfully, holidays and birthdays are all out of the way, so the temptation should be lessened. Need to drink more water, utilize honey, eat more fruits, and things like that to neutralize it. Wish me luck.

Afternoon all.

I really dislike all seafood and fish. It's not like I haven't given it a shot—I've tried everything, including shrimp, sushi,lobster.

It's kind of sad really, because there's many dishes that look so good and I wished I would be able to have them.

Good luck! I've been making a concerted effort to eat better lately, too, after months of snacking and gaining a little bulge around the middle.

I realized I ate a LOT of dairy in one day. I knew I didn't want to cut that out completely because a) I love it; and b) the truth has to be somewhere in between the "it's great for you!/it's bad for you" argument.

Anyway. I've already noticed a difference - yay for pants that aren't too tight! But now my brain says "Hey, time to eat like crap again for a little while ... come on ... just for the weekend!"

Bad brain. No cookie!

Oh man, I've gained so much weight in the past year. I need to improve my eating habits and get more active.

I love oysters. A little over an hour north of here is a place called Tomales Bay - and there's an oyster and mussel hatchery that you can buy bags of freshly picked oysters and shuck em and eat em right there. Cook a little bit on the grill, and OMG - best oysters and mussels I've ever had, and that was just with a simple butter & garlic sauce.

Since I found my allergy to shrimp as a kid, I've never tasted lobster. I've had crab occasionally and like it, but I'm not crazy about it. Just the smell of shrimp makes me start to feel a little queasy.

Good sea food restaurants usually have good prime rib or steak, and so that's how I make due when I find myself in one. I just do not like any type of sea food.

Last year I went pretty nuts with the diet and excercise thing. It didn't really work. This year I'm training for a 10k run in April, and I haven't changed my eating yet. I've started to run at least 3x a week, and have been losing weight pretty regularly, which is cool. Hopefully I'll be able to keep this up beyond April.

Yeah, given the choice between seafood and meat, I go with meat probably 9 out of 11 times.



Yeah, eleven. I'm a rebel like that.












either that or I'm a Guiliani man

I went through a phase in the last few years where eating red meat really upset my stomach. I think a lot of it was due to the fact that my then-boyfriend liked to eat later at night, which was usually when my stomach had closed for business.

But now I seem to be back on track. I don't eat a lot of red meat, but every once in a while a steak or a burger sounds reaaaaally good.

Bummer.

The target was neutralized via other means, then?

I eat red meat once a week, never more, occasionally less.

Chicago has some great steak houses that I need to start checking out.
