Yup, just like the Philly soda tax was a money grab, though I actually agree with that tax since soda is terrible for you.

Funny how the Democratic cities are always the worst off and the most violent.  Not that the Republicans are any better (the whole system is screwed up), but it's odd the poorest cities with the most murders have been under socialist rule for decades ;)

Welcome bro!

Whether it's for health or the nookie, I admire your interest in Paleo ;)
And I'm sure your diet is better than most since you have a serious interest in working out, so feel no shame hanging out with us and asking questions, sharing anecdotes from your gyms, etc.

Have a great one!

Wow, sounds great!  Thanks - will have to try this.

There is a recent book with more than 100 easy recipes for healthy, homemade dog food.  Reviews are excellent so far!

It's available on Amazon and includes Grain-Free, Paleo, as well as Raw Recipes.

There are recipes like Oatmeal Turkey Dog Biscuits and "desserts" like Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Ice Cream.  All recipes use real, whole ingredients like beef, chicken, potatoes, and carrots.

Let me know if you've had luck with natural diet for your pets!  We are considering getting our 1st dog next year.

Miscellaneous / Meat tax may be coming
« on: December 26, 2017, 01:00:10 PM »
If Americans and people in most other developed countries ate according to their nationally recommended dietary guidelines, they would consume less red meat and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are fueling climate change, new research shows.

But the world’s consumers don’t always eat what their government nutritionists tell them. So it might take a little more prodding — and that prodding could be on the way.

This week, the two-year-old investment network Farm Animal Investment Risk and Return (FAIRR) released a report saying that countries could begin taxing meat — the way they tax sugar, alcohol or tobacco — to drive down consumption and to hit their carbon emissions targets under the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

Quote
A few countries, including Germany, Denmark and Sweden, have considered behavioral, or "sin taxes," on meat, but the taxes haven’t yet gained support. This type of tax aims to cut meat consumption for health reasons — reducing the healthcare costs associated with a high-fat, animal-based diet — as well as for environmental reasons.

"Agriculture emissions alone will be so high by 2050, that that alone will push temperatures above 2 degrees," said FAIRR Director Maria Lettini, referring to the target set in Paris of limiting warming to at most 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. "We think, in the absence of other interventions, this is one that should be in the basket of tools."

Diet and nutrition / Re: urea, dementia, high protein, in the news now.

Oh, thanks for noticing spellcheck is broken.  It's a systemic issue with this forum so I've disabled it.

Most web browsers spellcheck for you in text boxes so all is good :)

Diet and nutrition / Re: Almond Butter

If you get one of the really good blenders (Vitamix) you can easily make your own almond oil.
They have huge motors and are fairly loud but do serious blending work (you can blend golf balls, etc. - it's seriously a beast)

I agree that palm oil (in addition to its harvesting being destructive) shouldn't be in an almond butter mix.

Very cool man.  I am getting older too.  Can you believe I read/found out about this stuff back in like 2003-2004?  Wow!

Are you also doing any exercise or getting physical activity?  I'd encourage at least more standing if not more walking as well if you don't do "zoo human" exercises (aka the gym)  :police:

Really appreciate the info you're sharing - neat to have outsider views compared to USA, though many of us here are from other parts as well.

What brought you toward Paleo - how has your life played out in the Netherlands. 
Does your area suffer similarly to the USA with obesity, diabetes, and similar afflictions?

Again, nice talking with you!  8)

So is the takeaway that eventually you run out of other people's money?  :)

What country do you live in?
