It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Eating Eggs vs. Smoking? Tomato-Tomato

So my partner, Ryan works out 5 days a week.  He's at the gym early in the morning and exercises frequently.  Only problem is, he eats 3 boiled eggs a day and 2 cans of tuna a day.  He does this for protein intake, and it's been doing great.  But according to a news article I read last week, eating an egg yolk a day "regularly increases plaque buildup about two-thirds as much as smoking does".

So for those who eat eggs every single day, you may want to re-think your diet. Then again, if you believe in the "Western Diet vs. Low-Carb Diet", "Sitting on The Job 10 Years or More Means You Have a 94% Chance of Developing a Tumor", or believe "Watching TV Will Kill You" - you're gonna die anyway.

Aside from that, I still think Eggs have too much saturated fat, at least in the egg yolk.  So this week, I boiled 15 eggs and removed the yolks, since most of the protein is in the whites anyway.  

Now I feel a little more comfortable knowing I have given my nutritional advice for the day. :-)  You can check out the article here, it's pretty damning... this new study has really compared eggs to smoking.

Next... Tuna. LOL.

You're so sweet my love. Love you bunches. We can always go back to protein shakes. They probably work better anyway and will kill me even less faster. I swear, if it's not one thing it's another. Eating whatever you want...kills you. Eating healthy...kills you. Watching too much TV or sitting on your ass too often...also kills you. It's just like you said, my love: Everyone's body is different so while smoking or eating bacon everyday for breakfast may kill one person early on, another guy could live to 103 without ever changing their habits. No one is immortal and we all will die one day. I could follow all of these studies to the T to achieve an extremely long life; only to go outside tomorrow and get hit by a bus, so why worry? I'll do what I can my love, but only a protein drink can fill the tuna void if it comes down to it. I may live longer then, but our bank accounts sure won't, so let's not forgo the fishy just yet. Love you bunches. Can't wait for your next article.
