I try to avoid HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) but its not always possible. i just to to limit it.
27th-Jan-2011 12:39 pm (UTC)
Same here.
27th-Jan-2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
Oh, me, too! And it's nigh on impossible.

I also try not to buy things that come in not-so-biodegradable packaging (like packaging within packaging type stuff), but that's pretty difficult to do, too.

Sometimes i try to abstain from breathing. It never seems to work out for me though. =)
27th-Jan-2011 03:28 am (UTC)
Oh wow, the metaphorical implications of "Sometimes i try to abstain from breathing" just hit me. That's not what i mean.

I like to hold my breath because i am WEIRD. And because i can hold my breath forever when i'm dreaming.
27th-Jan-2011 04:46 am (UTC)
I used to pass the time in class by trying to see how long I could hold my breath and then trying to beat myself! It was fun!

Paul Rudd is always welcomed at my party. Preferably unclothed.
27th-Jan-2011 04:45 am (UTC)
My avoid list includes high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated fats. I also try to avoid artificial colorings and preservatives whenever possible.

I don't actively avoid alcohol, but I'm not a drinker. I've been drunk once, ever, and I didn't find the experience enjoyable at all. I'll have a drink socially once in a while, but only while I'm at my own house and don't have to DD.

I smell and have a few drops of wine, and occasionally a dry cider, but otherwise yes, abstain from alcohol. :)
27th-Jan-2011 08:01 am (UTC)
Whats MSG?

Also I never smoked a cigarette in mylife, and I limit my alcohol(don't have more than a glass (0.5) of cider or wine(0.3) a week I also try to avoid ariticial stuff such as powdered soups, and most of the E ingredients, and artificial cheese or meat. (I like to cook my meals myself so I know there isnt anything in there that is unneccessary

MSG = monosodium glutamate
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monosodium_glutamate

It's basically a seasoning salt.

Some people avoid it for health reasons. It's a migraine trigger for some, and others think it's just generally unhealthy/will cause cancer/whatever but these days, what doesn't cause cancer?

27th-Jan-2011 03:14 pm (UTC)
Oh I have heard of glutamate. It belongs to the artificial stuff.I don't use it because I don't like to use artificial flavour enhancer.
27th-Jan-2011 03:16 pm (UTC)
(its known as glutamat only here(also interesting fact. sodium = Natrium.)
I try to steer free of most artificial flavours and substances and E ### substances.
27th-Jan-2011 09:43 am (UTC)
I can normally handle fried foods and MSG without a problem, but if I already have a headache or am sick already, both make me feel worse.
27th-Jan-2011 02:41 pm (UTC)
I wonder how many people avoid MSG because they react to it and how many avoid it because they think it's "evil".
27th-Jan-2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
My mother avoids MSG because she says it does nasty things to her digestive system. I mostly avoid it because i don't like the aftertaste. It's sticky and kind of yucky, subtle yet unmistakable. I don't know, it's hard for me to describe, but not many foods cover it up very well.
27th-Jan-2011 03:44 pm (UTC)
I'm starting to think people aren't reading the first question like I did. I try to abstain from the things I checked off, but don't always succeed.
27th-Jan-2011 03:46 pm (UTC)
There are actually people who like pineapple flavored things? O.O
27th-Jan-2011 04:13 pm (UTC)
Not me. Or root beer/licorice. Yech.
27th-Jan-2011 06:28 pm (UTC)
I said Jenny McCarthy just so I could punch her in her stupid face.
27th-Jan-2011 11:58 pm (UTC)
I find it interesting that I don't try to abstain from anything that I would find it difficult to try to abstain from.
28th-Jan-2011 12:01 am (UTC)
I try to avoid too much sugar and salt. I don't smoke and I don't drink.

I love coconut, raspberry and mango flavors. I just had a mango smoothie yesterday. It was very good.

Anne Rice because I adore her books.
28th-Jan-2011 03:16 pm (UTC)
Health class was very emphatic about Just Saying No to alcohol, cigarettes and drugs. The lesson worked so well that I still have no interest in even the socially acceptable one, despite being above the legal drinking age and having a glass of champagne on special occasions.

No amount of warnings will scare me off tasty foods, though. Or things that reduce calorie content in said tasty foods.

(exception to food abstinence: I don't really like the taste of red meat, so it seems especially pointless to kill adorable animals for it.)

When I said I abstained from fried foods, I meant deep fried. I do like stir-fry that I make at home myself. I didn't check fast food, though I am vegan so obviously don't eat the usual burgers and fries and things like that. I will, however, get an all-veggie sandwich at Subway occasionally (usually when traveling) and I love vegan pizza (is that a fast food?).

I am shy so I wouldn't invite any of those people since I don't know them.
