    Many people prefer to marinate or cook venison in wine and there is little doubt that it improves the flavour tremendously.
    A Toronto resident, who was born in Midland, Ontario, submitted this recipe with the comment “The aroma is so temptingly good we stayed up until 11:00 P.M. to sample it on one occasion.”

    Preheat oven to 500° F.

    Trim, removing any dry pieces of skin and fat from
    1 venison roast
    Wipe with damp cloth.
    Place in roasting pan and sear in 500° oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 425°¬
    Arrange over roast
    6 to 8 slices bacon
    Roast, uncovered, in 425° oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove bacon when browned.


    1 cup beef bouillon or consommé
    1 cup red or white wine or fruit juice
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    3 tablespoons chopped onion
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon thyme

    Pour over roast.
    Cover meat loosely with foil and continue roasting until tender (about 20 minutes per pound for medium rare).
    Baste frequently during roasting.

    There were times in history where obesity was considered the norm.(depends on your definition of obese.)

    Right now we have several factors:
    1. A deliberate change in the late 1990s to a BMI "normal weight that the WHO considers “famine victim” to make most people “obese” who were considered “normal” or “thin” under the old body composition system. A 4lb average gain (and inches of height) from the 1990s to the 2000s suddenly made everyone became “obese” and “morbidly obese”.
    2. SSRIs, SNRIs, NRIs, antiinflammatories, and dozens of other drugs that frequently cause huge weight gains by changing the “set point” or otherwise interfering in metabolism.
    3. An epidemic of hypothyroidism. Some estimates go as high as 40% of the population.
    4. Lack of effective treatment for hypothyroidism. Doctors typically only replace part of the T4 a person had, often ignoring T3 completely, thus meaning the person is not effectively treated. T2’s role has been all but ignored.
    5. Inner city areas where it’s not been safe for kids to play outside for two decades, and thus the exercise they would have gotten as kids in the 1970s and 1980s is just not done.

    People are fat because they eat to much and do not engage in regular exercise. Fast food, laziness, all you can eat buffets etc are responsible for the epidemic of obesity here. Rarely does thyroid or other endocrine disease directly contribute to a person being overweight.

    All I know is that my Large T shirts in my closet from the 1990’s are the same size as my Medium T-shirts of today.

    So when are they going to recognize hard work, not wasting time, and efficiency as good things, and unions and laziness as bad things?

    Actually, I’ve had a long history of not trusting height/weight charts. When I was younger, they always called me overweight. This in spite of my looking like a stick man. The situation hasn’t gotten any better. The charts still think I’m overweight; and the public still thinks I’m starving.

    Every time I’ve seen a grossly obese person they’ve had a large soda in there hand or pushing a shopping cart with more food than I could go through in a month and lots of cake and ice cream. I’m heavy at 6’1" and 225lbs, to much fat not enough muscle but a long way from obese. Charts are fine but obesity is unmistakable in any person.

    They must be reading the charts incorrectly. Not that I put much trust in them myself. I know the weight that I feel healthy at, that people say looks good on me, and my clothes fit. When my clothes feel tight, I cut back.

    It works.

    I’ve noticed that too. And there are also obese persons who hide their staches of candy, like bottles of alcohol. Food addiction is real, and chemically difficult to break. But it can be done.
