Yeah I avoid any monosodium glutamate crap as much as I can. I would love to eat all healthy food, but I just couldn't consume enough calories needed for my extremely high metabolism, and ended up losing WAY too much weight. I am NOT looking to lose weight at all, quite the opposite. I need to bulk up. I also have trouble finding foods that I actually enjoy eating that do not take too much preparation. If it takes forever to prepare, forget it. I am too chronically ill to be cooking and running to the grocery store all day every day.
