New section for men! Check it out!
« on: June 27, 2007, 01:20:38 PM »

A big "thank you" to Seth for creating this section for men to come and share things that might be particular to - well....um men! 

The reason that I requested our own section is that men and women are very unique of course and I'm assuming that uniqueness may also come out while being on SLD.  We face different challenges, have different cravings, and perhaps progress differently then women too. 

It is also well known that we tend to not be as open as women with our challenges and maybe the somewhat anonimity that the internet provides could be a positive factor in this case.  I know that I may be more apt to be open and honest this way then if I met you in person. 

Here's to guys and everything that is about guys!  Ladies, you are certainly welcome to post, comment, etc but we do hope that you view this area as "our corner of the house."  That den or garage that we retreat to in order to get in touch with what makes us uniquely male.

In the words of another member (female I might add) this is now a menopause free zone!

Here to offer my manly support.  I wonder if it's a male trait to be more reluctant to talk about things like dieting.  I didn't even let on to my wife that I was doing this until I was sure it was working.  Now she knows, and she's trying it too.

I think there is something to that Bob.  We're taught to be "manly" and eat "manly" but screw manly if it means that I'm going to keel over and have a heartattack in 5 yrs from eating "manly"! 

I'll drink oil, eat less and look better thank you very much!   :D

Of course there's eating manly and eating womanly.  If you're a "real" man (or so they say) you're eating bratwurst, steaks, chili, beer, etc and LOT'S of it..."womanly" eating would be salads with raspberry vinigrette, diet soda's, tea, sushi.....you get the drift right?  At least that's how it is here in America.

Are we talking real bratwurst here or something akin to a hot dog sausage? Having had the real thing from a small Bavarian butcher in the Schwartzwold, nothing else really comes close. Same goes for beer, the commercial chemical stuff comes nowhere close to the small family run breweries in Germany or Belgium. Then there's what the Brits call Real Ale, brown beers usually consumed in large quantities after Rugby matches ;-)

On the rare occasions when I've consumed American "beers" I've usually watched everybody else slide under the table and couldn't even manage to get drunk. It was kinda like having sex in a canoe :P

There are some good brats and non-commercial beers here too, you just have to know where to find 'em, but on a daily basis, I would say we're eating average brats and drinking watered-down beer compared to Europeans.  My husband loved the food and beer in Germany and says there's really nothing like it here, on a large scale anyway.

so now that theres a "MAN" section id like to share that one of the most beneficial things ive gotten from the diet is after the initial week, my poops have been much better, i can almost set my watch by them and they usually come out it one long easy piece.

to address the beer and brat thing, i think america has a bad rap for quality beers and brats. i gotta agree with kmac. theres good beer and brats, you just gotta look a little bit. the standard is oscar mayer and bud light, but theres local butchers and microbrews that i feel would stand up to some of the better european stuff, but im not here to argue.

 im just glad we got a place where we can talk about stuff that might be a little off color that we might be worried about mentioning in the presence of sensitive ears. as far as manly and womanly eating i think that has more to do with sterotyping, because i have seen some women that could eat half the wendy's menu in one sitting without skipping a beat as well as men that cant finish 2 value cheeseburgers.

I was only talking metaphorically Magpie - sex in a canoe = 'effing close to water - a reference to certain American brews that do not come remotely close to Swan Premium, Tooheys or VB when it comes to alcohol content. For the uninitiated, these beers tend to have around 6.5% alcohol content. How much does Bud Lite have? -2% :P
