We are wired in such a way as to dump unnecessary memories in order to keep from cluttering up our "hard drives", for the same reason one must dump temporary files and un-needed garbage on our computer.

Remembering what one ate three days ago is way less important than remembering to wipe your butt and flush the toilet after taking a dooker.

Poop, clean and defrag, wipe and repeat.....

Sure I can remember. Why are you asking? What are you going to do with this information?

ok....I'll spill the beans.........sorry for the corny food's a serious personality defect that I'm constantly battling every day.

Breakfast every day....yoghurt and coffee

Lunch........................two hard boiled eggs and a V8

Dinner.......................Mexican food of somekind. Usually Blue Corn enchiladas W/cheddar cheese and green chili.

Snacks....................slimjims, Doritos, Little chocolate donuts, fried pies, misc. Candy of all types, Nachos
with onions and jalapenios, fried tacitos, Craker Jacks, chili flavored popcorn, Twinkies,
SnowBalls, pickled pigs feet, Beef Jerky, those Nasty Red Sausages, all from the 7/11
and all washed down with either a Monster, RedBull, RockStar or a 40oz of Malt liqour or
a pint of Jose Cuervo or cheap wine.

Thats my diet at home......when I'm working on a movie; crafty and catered meals are the daily offering.

I find it very easy to remember not to eat a lot of things because of food allergies.

There are only so many things that don't make me sick anymore, what a drag it is getting old.

The responses to your question are truly enlightening as they fail to see your example as a metaphor for the greater problem of memory. Ugh.

As to your question, yes, many people are suffering a failing memory, no matter the age or quality of health. You are not alone. It is very common and look for it to get much worse in a few months.

What an absolute inspiration this thread has been to me.

I just got back from the 7/11 up the road where I filled up the PU with pushwater and got a sack with goodies; now spread out on the desk in my office.

I got a couple of Big Hunks, Gone nutty pop tarts, Bacon Schmecken, patriot pretzels, fish crackers, Oreo Banana cookies, Pringles xtra firey sweet BBQ chips, Tabasco flavored popcorn, large family sized bag of chichirones, Chua firecracker bars, and a 12 pack of Mickeys BigMouths.

Time for a Binge and Purge festival

Nothing, nothing and, oh yeah...nothing!

See how easy that was?

Is Ethiopia nice this time of year? I'm thinking of going, but the thought of all those flies turns me off.

Anyways, what smilesmcgee said is pretty accurate. The brain pushes aside information that isn't really important. What you ate 2 or 3 days ago isn't important, so it gets filed away. I remember reading somewhere that we never completely forget anything, but things just get filed away in the back of your mind. I bet plenty of these 'useless' memories could be recalled through hypnosis.

I can! Same thing for a long time. Protein shake, protein shake, 2 Edy's lime popsicles, protein shake, blueberry/flaxseed/protein shake, blueberry muffin

Exciting stuff I know

I can remember almost everything I ate for the whole week, I am tracking the way foods effect perception. I have improved my memory quite a bit in the last couple of years. I can tell you something, the cause of memory problems is not what most people think.

I caught a nasty virus from my daughter though, I was working with her trying to find a way to get rid of the cold but now I can test things on my own. Boy it is resistant to everything I threw at it. I guess curing a cold along with allergens in the air at the same time is not easy. The humidity is so high from having lots of rain that it is causing problems with some fungus and mold spores in the air. I haven't made pine needle tea yet, but that only helps to control the symptoms, I'm trying to find a combination of things that knocks out the cold. This thing sucks, it doesn't seem to effect my memory though, it effects the speed of my thinking though and I am always tired.

Three days ago didn't eat at all. Two days ago ate a meatloaf and a whole wheat bread thingie, forget the word for it right now. Almost like a biscuit though. Yesterday had macoroni salad. Yeah, I don't get to eat a lot, so I tend to remember my meals a bit more than I would have say 8 years ago when I was able to afford 3 square meals every day and some snacks etc lol.

Dr. Pepper and a Smoke for Breakfast

Pepperoni and Sausage pizza w/ breadsticks and a side salad.

Slow cooked chicken breasts with a jack daniels bbq sauce glaze. mashed red potatoes and buttered rolls.

Why's that hard?

Some of you should learn to cook, it can be cheaper then using 7/11 as your main source of nutrition...

The rest of you should share your recipes cause some of this stuff sounds delicious.

Monday - nothing - chili from Wendys - a pork chop
Tuesday - nothing - nothing - homemade tacos
Wednesday - nothing - some Taquitos - a butter burger from Culvers
Thursday - nothing - nothing - salibury steak
Friday - nothing - a chicken patty - french toast
Saturday - nothing - store-bought mini-pizzas - not late enough to have had dinner yet

I tend to only store a week's worth of food in my memory though. If I get sick afterward, it's probably from something I ate next week.

As for events, I can remember days, dates, and even sometimes what the weather was like, if the event is important enough in my memory. Thursday, October 10, 2002 - quite chilly (60s I would say) and it was drizzling lightly so there were no stars visible outside: the evening I met my wife.

I've always attributed my memory to the fact that I consistently use it. I read, I write, I create artistically, I hold long conversations with multiple friends on a series of occasionally-related topics. Instead of wasting my mind with video games, drugs, or other stunting agents, I seek to continually challenge myself. Over the years I think it has helped to keep my brain elastic and in tip-top-shape.

I think people generally tend to remember things that are important or have meaning to them for some reason or another. I'm a little bit obsessed with food and strive to eat and feed my family a variety, always. I constantly lose my lists so I have to remember so I don't duplicate a meal.
Wednesday: (3 days ago)
breakfast - bagel w/ cream cheese & strawberries
lunch - chicken sandwich, fries
dinner - steak, black rice w/ zucchini & carrots
Tuesday: (4 days ago)
breakfast - toast w/ peanut butter
lunch - enchilada casserole, carrots
dinner - hamburgers, roasted potatoes, garlic peas
Monday: (5 days ago)
breakfast - watermelon, grapes, mini muffin
lunch - sushi - dragon roll
dinner - enchilada casserole
I wake up and go to sleep thinking of what to eat/prepare and can't seem to forget, often feels like a curse.
There's plenty of other stuff I regularly forget. My Granny always said that our minds are so filled up with needless information that it crowds the important stuff out, that's why we forget so much.
