PhotoHunt #48 - Artificial

 
Canada
After saying it for months (years?), it seems that I finally realized that I have to lose weight if I want to be around to see my kids grow up (or walk my daughters down the aisle). Since I’m terrible with regards to fruits and vegetables, I have been eating less since Tuesday or Wednesday. So far, so good… but let me tell you, there’s a lot of artificial stuff in the supposedly ‘healthy’ food.
 
Let’s see how far can I make it this time.
 
 
Argentina
Después de haberlo dicho por meses (años?), parece que finalmente me he dado cuenta de que tengo que bajar de peso si quiero poder estar por aquí para ver a mis hijos crecer (o entregar a mis hijas en matrimonio). Como soy terrible con las comidas (casi no como frutas y verduras, y detesto las ensaladas), todo lo que puedo hacer por ahora es comer menos. Hasta ahora voy bien… pero déjenme decirles que hay demasiadas cosas artificiales en lo que se supone que es comida ‘saludable’.
 
Veremos cuánto duro en este intento.

I don’t see anything ‘artificial’ here… This is pure, natural vessel-clogging fat.
And this, I like!!!

  1. Dieting is so hard but you have 4 wonderful reasons to do it! Good luck!

  2. Eating sensibly and in moderation accompanied by plenty of exercise is better than "diet" foods which tend to be higher in salt and sugar. Not that I do either and my big butt can attest to that!

  11. El Splenda es sucarosa y tengo entendido que es natural por eso debe ser que es mas caro que el resto de los edulcorantes. Yo lo compro porque sirve para cocinar y no tiene los gustos de los artificiales.

  12. Good luck with the diet. That's what I'm doing now -- somewhat. Nice shots!

  13. great post, sometimes I wonder which is the worst for us, real or artificial? my photo hunt is here Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  14. El splenda es bueno, a mi me gusta mucho y como dice Ale no tiene feo gusto.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ale tiene razón, el Splenda está hecho de la sucarosa (o sucralosa), pero no está en estado natural ni ahí... :-)

    Es lo que uso yo también, esté o no a dieta, debido a mi diabetes

  16. Oh dear, those fatty fried foods are not good!! I like fruits and vegetables, now that I am older.. but it helps to have eaten well while young. Hang in there, you can do it!

    Mine's up, too! I hope you get some time to visit.

  20. Great post!
    You are so right; there are much artificial in "healthy" food, but I found a natural sweetener that I now use when making food. You may view it here: http://www.funksjonellmat.no/english/index.php.
    For the time being it seems like Sukrin only is sold in a few countries, but you can e-mail them :)
