Girls are so conscious of their bodies and how society views them.It's scary! Our younger daughter gained the freshman 15 at college,but came home determined to lose some of it--although I hadn't said a word. Shopping for clothes in the spring and having to get 6s instead of 2s or 4s was pretty telling.


YES! *Some* fat is necessary. I've discovered that not much does the trick, but it's hard to cook anything without SOME. It can be very hard on the kidneys to have little-to-none. (As well as the digestive system, I would think). Still...that balance can be tricky, especially when a person loves cheese as much as I do.


Yay! I can eat my turkey-and-tomato sandwich with a hint of mayo guilt-free! Now can you help me rationalize having ice cream once or twice a week? I'm thinking that we all need dairy products...


Elena, you eat ice cream because it brings you joy, also an important nutritional element.

Karen, you guys handled that beautifully.


I admire folks who bring up girls with halfway decent body images in the world today. The pressures are just immense, and I think you all said the right things. A little mayo and cream and -- above all -- *butter* make us happy -- what's good for Julia Child is good for most of us.
