    Fat free does not mean sugar free. I compared a “fat free” yogurt to some Hersey’s Kisses. It would have taken 11 Hersey’s Kisses to equal the one small yogurt.

    It’s not the fat, it’s the sugar!! Fat free yogurt is loaded with sugar. And fat free yogurt really tastes nasty!

    I tend to agree with Mom… I cooked a non-healthified, authentic pumpkin pie from last month without cutting any corners and it tasted awesome!

    Good morning all. Sadly I know all about the lack of willpower. Especially this time of year!

    Good morning hendelca, SUSAN NEWMAN, Shyygirl27, lightenup, GretchensMom, scaredycatsarge10, Veridian, mollie05 any visitor to this comic!

    I once heard that a relative of mine (a great uncle or something like that) lived on a farm that I think had livestock and such… he lived into his 80s/90s still doing farm work, from what I remember. So perhaps the quality of ingredients makes a difference, alongside exercise!

    Go full fat! Everything in moderation and you’ll probably be more satisfied and actually eat less…

    Susan, you’re eagle eye caught a major change in this strip — Mom without her apron! I can’t remember ever seeing her without it. Thanksgiving holiday food shopping must be special indeed for Cathy’s Mom!

    I bet that apron is still safely in place – under the coat!

    Can’t wait for some pumpkin pie and it had better be full fat cause I can tell!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone, have a safe and enjoyable Holiday and Don’t forget to be thankful for all your blessings.

    I’m running late today, but I do agree with SplendensPluviaNemus and most others. As long as we eat food that is close to what nature made (without mankind’s help), I think we’re fine. And maybe pork lard isn’t the best for us, but if we substitute a healthier oil for it, that’s fine too.

    In fact, just today we went grocery shopping and one of the items on the list was vanilla extract. I made a point of telling Jr and Lil that we’re going to buy only pure vanilla extract, not imitation. And I read the ingredients list of the imitation one, the third ingredient was some chemical, which made Lil ask “What’s that??” I laughed and answered, “Exactly! If you don’t know what it is, don’t eat it!” :-)

    Hello to all my favorite friends who make me happy every day!!
    (I just wish we would hear from Aaron and Billy again… :-/)

    Hi Cathyites!! I only buy fat-free or low-fat items when it doesn’t make any difference — and there are some times when it just doesn’t. I never buy sugar-free because I got really sick on diet pop years ago and then discovered it was full of aspertame — not good for you at all. I also cannot stand to get fat (like from meat) in my mouth — as my British hubby says “it turns me over” — it always did, even when I was a kid.

    It starts small, but then it escalates.


    And “it” could be a number of things.


    Just sayin’.


    Hello, wonderful “Cathy” Clan. Aaron and Billy, we miss you and hope to hear from you soon.
