    Default Lower Calorie Local Food

    Ok, hawaiian and local food are my favorite foods in the world (Japanese food comes close second for me), but its not known for being low cal.

    Crash dieting is bad, so I'm working on lifestyle changes. I have figured out a couple things:

    Poke(ahi, tako, any kine)
    Very low cal. About 170 calories per cup.

    Poi
    Pretty filling if you ask me. About 270 calories per cup.
    Can double as a dessert and with no extra calories if sweetened with splenda.

    Kim Chee
    REALLY low calorie. 40 calories per cup!

    Lomi Lomi Salmon
    Again, really low cal. 80 calories per cup!

    SPAM MUSUBI
    IF and only IF you make it with turkey spam its almost 100 calories less!! (79 to be exact.) That helps a lot! ...especially if you eat as many as I do...

    Kalua Pig
    LOST CAUSE. hehehe If you can show me a low cal kalua pig, I'll make you rich.

    Anyone have any other tricks or tips?

    Oh, I got one more too. Not quite local food related, but its good to know. Chinese teas like green tea and oolong tea speeds up the metabolism, has caffine and all that, but also has an appetite suppressant. And all naturally.

    Try Shintani's Wai‘anae or Moloka‘i diets. Very Hawaiian, and also very healthy.

    "Focus on whole food, that is, whole brown rice, potatoes, taro, poi -- which is pretty much a whole food; it's just smashed up but all the nutrients are there. When you do that, you've got all the elements to keep you healthy, things like fiber, bulk, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. I mean, nature is very wonderful -- the way nature packages it all," said Shintani.

    That's what my husband keeps saying too. But the whole food thing is hawaiian food, which is good. Lots of fish and sea food. Can't go wrong there. Local food is another matter altogether with breaded this and teriyaki that.

    Have you ever tried kalua turkey (gotta make 'em yourself, but cheaper den the pork). If you use thighs, going taste exactly like kalua pig, without all the grease! (OK, so how much you going pay me??? )

    Raw food. Totally raw. This includes any and all vegetables, fruits and raw nuts. Guaranteed you will lose weight if you eat raw food. Raw food contains all the nutrients that the human body needs. Raw fish ? YES !!! Juicing these raw veggies and fruits is excellent.

    Nothing processed at all.....nothing cooked above 117 degrees. No boxed or canned food at all and no rice ! Oh, please don't attack me *LOL*

    Water, water and more water. Not tap water because it contains chlorine. Filtered tap water is good. The body needs half it's weight in ounces of water every day. 150# person needs 75 ounces of water daily.

    Nope, its pig or no $$. hehehe Yeah, I've tried it. It was pretty good! I didn't know it was just thighs. Maybe I'll make some this week. I got leftover ti leaf from last time I made kalua pig (oven style). Good point though. That would be much lower calorie.

    Isn't that kind of like saying, "Guaranteed you will lose weight if you eat roof shingles"?

    I will call this comtempt prior to investigation. I can see that you have it in for me by reading the last two things to you posted to me. What is the deal here ? Can we resolve this ? I have no idea why you have singled me out to attack. Do you have a reason ?

    Yes this is to be done gradually. Small steps at a time. Thanks for your response.

    Yes that is correct. The transistion to eating only raw food can be a slow one, happening over the course of a few months. Thanks for your response.

    No, no, I did not mean to juice raw fish. Eat the raw fish but juice the veggies and fruit. Sorry for the confusion.

    DO NOT DIET! Diet=unhealthy muscle loss and malnutrition.Learn a life long healthy way of eating,it's hard because we have been exposed to millions of adds saying crappy toxic food is wonderfull to eat and the chemicals in them tell our brain the same thing P.S. the tabbacco industrie is not the only one using additives to increase addiction.
    What most people aggree on that make true health a study is;Whole foods,as many raw foods that you can handle because of the live enzimes and vitamines not breaking down,avoid diet food (huge scam),avoid artificial ingreedients and additives(the 1000's of chemicals are unhealthy and are only used to increase proffits they are not made for our health)F.Y.I. they can now list 1000's of chemicals under the term "spices" and "natural ingredients" including M.S.G.Daily walking 1 hour per day for overall health and proper organ function
    The book "South Beach Diet" tought me alot abot the role of fiber slowing digestion and how insaline response effects wieght/health only real problem I had was the encouragment of low fat foods(fat is very important in our diet) and artificial sweetners (nasty stuff and a scam)But I recomend it as a good read with alot of great info
    hope that helps and just my .02 I "Know" nothing!

    Excellent post !

    You can get an herbal sweetener called Stevia. It is safe to use and contains zero calories. Stevia can be found at a health food store.

    MSG is a neurotoxin that works on the brain. It makes you think that food tastes better than it really does, so you will eat more of it.

    Funny thing happened after I started only shopping at the whole foods stores and farmers markets is the food fricking tastes great!The use of organic ingredients is wonderfull(organic=no chemical toxic furtalizer or pestasides) so the foods have to be grown in a natural way and be picked when ripe and delivered promply to the store as apposed to picked green and gassed and delivered "whenever"
    We make/buy treats made with whole flower,pressed cane juice,sea salt so the health food=dry tasteless food myth is a bunch of bull

    Yes it certainly is much better to eat organic foods. I bet you feel a lot better physically too, yeah ?

    I have been using sea salt for years. It is almost the only spice I use. Have you used olive oil yet ? It is great too.

    The comment about the food was meant to be light-hearted humor. A joke, that's all.
    If I eat only raw foods, I get a huge stomach-ache. Can't do it, don't wanna do it, but if it works for you, great!
    I don't "have it in" for you or anyone else. I don't live like that. The other stuff you posted (that I responded to) was all about how tough you and your man are, and I responded to that in kind. It's not an attack, it's a reaction. If you're going to go on in practically every post about how tough your man is and how you beat someone up and he beat someone up and so on, you're practically begging for a reaction. I apologize for not cowering in fear.
    Just because I post something like that, it doesn't mean I don't like you or have it in for you. It's just a comment. And if you feel like giving me a hard time, I can take that, too! It's only fair.
    So are you going to track me down and beat me up now, or have your man do it?

    Not supposed to eat shingles and call it raw food. *LOL* I can see why you get a stomach ache !

    I cannot find any of my posts where I said that my man beat any one up, can you please direct me to them ? Neither can I find a post that I made where I claimed how tough I am....please show me that one too. Yeah I posted that I beat up some man on the beach, which did happen.....as I clarified, it happened in 1989. I am not the same person today that I was then at all. I jokingly suggested that maybe I should have my man collect money for me, never said one word about any him hitting any one in that post either. As far as what happened at the party with the Karoke thing, me telling some one that my man wants to hit them, does not mean that any hitting went on. I think you should try and read posts better, instead of jumping to conclusions and accusing some one of some thing that was not written and did not happen. That is, if you can read and process what you read. Heh heh heh. If not, I can keep explaining to you if you need me to do so.

    I agree with the eating real butter. Margarine is one molecule away from being plastic.

    I stopped listening to what doctors say years ago. They can only practice what they are taught in medical school and not much is taught about diet. What we eat can kill us or cure us. Simple fact.
