I don't know if that's the full case, I guess I am just having a winge. I did grow good vege gardens in the past , then things changed, probably 20 years ago they started charging for water and of course the price just keeps going up. You put effort into prepping it and watering it ,then go down to the supermarket and see tomatoes really cheap because they are in season and everyone has them. The thread title got me going as ,recently I have lost 10 kilos and I was not overweight before .I got sick of trying to eat cheap nasty grisserly meat . Pies ect like someone mentioned suspect meat .So I have nearly gone off meat completely. That leaves me pale and tired. I don't know much about lentils and how vegetarians get their iron. As it is I only eat once a day sometimes nothing. Though my six year old gets three full feeds a day plus snacks, she is a big girl , must be her father as I am and always was tiny. I have been to every factory in this town and because I am not local they give me dirty looks and tell me to go away. When I enquire about jobs in the city that I am fully able to do. The response when they find out you don't live next door, is don't bother your to far away. Rent is much cheaper in the country.
.Slowly but surely I am getting more run down. I weigh 41 kilos and that was my weight when I was a teenager. How to get a job when your tired and run down. On 35$ a day once you pay your rent and power,
water ect There isn't enough money to feed everyone properly so I along with many others go without so our kids are fed and get the other things they need. Sorry for wineing so much but I look around and wonder whats going on and I worry for the future. 1%

Sounds more like you are B12 deficient along with being a little low on iron. B12 deficiency makes you weak also. Sometimes we can't Process B12 properly, some sublingual B12 can remedy that problem because it doesn't require the enzymes in the upper part of the stomach. It converts it under the tongue as you let it desolve there I guess.

Meat also contains natural NAC which is lost with overprocessed foods. It breaks down when the temperature of the food is over around a hundred and twenty degrees. Some can be formed when making soups by adding a little onions or garlic or the salts or powders of these to the pot with a little tobasco sauce or hot peppers. Niacin deficiencies makes the body go bad also, the potassium levels get screwed up. Restricting salt too much makes you weak also, I think there is a problem with the health agencies picking on salt, the sodium levels can exceed balanced chloride levels and that can be a problem. I see a lot of people who don't understand diet completely starting policies that are bad for some people. Society is making people sick.

I would recommend anyone not a proponent of the paleo diet check out Mathieu Lalonde's talks on it. He backs everything with science and research data.

I modified my diet slightly after this. Incorporated more potatoes and reduced fruit.

Tomatoes have tomatine which can be troublesome to a lot of people. It is part of the tomatoes defense system to keep animals from eating all it's fruit till ripe. Picked ripe on the vine the tomatine is neutralized and the tomato sweetens to promote animals to eat the tomato and spread the seeds. Potatoes have solamine, another chemical that protects the potato's survival. It is a half way decent drug to keep a person settled. It is classified as a neurotoxin but when coupled with the nicotine/ nicotinic acid in the potato it actually promotes clear thinking. Too many potatoes when a woman is pregnant is not good either. Potatoes are high in phosphorus and the phosphorous can be a little radioactive if the fertilizer was. You use 6/24/24 fertilizer on potatoes. I doubt if it can cause mutations unless a really lot of potatoes are eaten.

I like potatoes. Tomatoes make me break out sometimes if I overeat them, not really an allergy though. Potatoes and tomatoes can react in some people if eaten around the same time. Potatoes and bananas can cross react in a lot of people. The banana is mostly neutralized if cooked though, it's plant defense system is not very heat tollerant.

I can go on and on....What do you crave when pregnant. My daughter craved fish when she had her two boys, not even knowing what they were till later in the pregnancy. The boys love to eat fish.

Rickymouse, I was last with child six years ago ,and had no cravings, I spewed for the whole time even when I went to hospital I was given no help . My baby was c section and she was small but healthy . Now I am having trouble with her weight. It is a long story and I am pretty annoyed about it. With my first child I only spewed for the first three months, then I was fine. Though she is not very tall and she and others attacked me for her height yet I am only 4 foot 11". When I was little we lived in poverty and often went hungry ,I remember before starting school asking my mum for food and she opened the cupboard and there was a piece of bread, she broke of a part of crust that was rock hard and that's what I ate, meanwhile my older brothers and sisters found a potatoe in the back yard dirt and started fighting over it.
My father was a jurno and should have had a decent wage. He was a very violent alco I don't know why we starved.
I thought life would be different better when I grew up but there really is not much different except not as much violence.
Another thing even though we lived in poverty I never once had lice yet now its rife in all the schools .I have spent nearly 60$ on lice treatment in the last two weeks .
I don't know what the school nurse does she does not weed out the parents that do not treat their kids hair .
I have been considering home schooling as I cant keep pouring lice treatment on our hair every 4 weeks.
I have thick long hair and it takes a whole bottle to soak my hair properly. That's 20$ a treatment for me only .
My 6 year old is like an only child as her sister does not live with us .So I have to send her to school to get socialised and or bullied .
That's it probably gone off topic killed another thread damm . Sorry to those people who's threads I killed.
Cheers rickymouse 1% by the way what is the pic in your avatar?
