139. MSG and weight gain
Marilyn Monroe was truly beautiful. Unfortunately she was a little bit disturbed, lol.

Here is an interesting fact. I used to have the link but I lost it. Computer problems.
Scientist or researchers were researching a drug for something and they made the rats obese by giving them MSG. The same thing that is in most of our processed foods. I dont know how much but you know this could be a part of America's being overweight. That along with the fact that cows milk has naturally occuring growth hormones that are designed to make baby cows get big.
To make matters worse, our dairy farmers give the cows growth hormones and such to make them produce more milk. I feel that for some at least, the MSG and the hormones in dairy products could be adding to the obesity problems some face.

I can tell you this, I dropped a pants size just by cutting out nearly all the dairy in my diet. I can now get in my old clothes that I could wear before my daughter was born. I dont have a weight problem but like most I would love to lose some more weight. I want to wear a 5/6 or 7/8 in pants but that is not likely in my future.
I am not that big now so I should not complain. My hubby is another story though. We both worry about his health.
