I've gone keto to get off that stubborn last few pounds.

My belt is looser after a few days. I'm told by youtube videos that this is mostly water weight but also that this is very good because I am reducing inflamation througout my body. You're supposed to lose some stuff like bloating of the face pretty quickly.

I don't know about long term. They say even people who just eat butter and bugers and stuff do well but I'm afraid that is a strain on you organs. I'm also skeptical about eating little to no fruit.

Anyway, this guy's videos seem solid. Even if you don't do keto the part about the adaptability of the palate and not eating like a child is good.

The diet/fitness/weight loss industries try to make eating too complicated so they can make a quick buck.

Just eat healthy, minimally or non-processed foods at or just below your daily caloric requirements. There's no "secret combination" of foods you have to eat (or not eat) to be healthy or in shape like all these fad diets would have you believe.

If you see something that's "The ________ Diet" it's just somebody trying to make money.



I tend to agree up to a point. I'm sure a lot of the benefits of keto or anything similar are that people stop eating very bad foods. However, i wouldn't say thats a bad thing. If going on the _____ diet is the hook that gets you to stop eating Pringles with every meal and some guy makes a buck, win/win.

However, it seems quite reasonable to me that certain foods and certain combinations of foods are better than others. Maybe much more so.

Pretty recently, i think most people believed breakfast cereal was good for you and eggs were bad for you. It seems like the opposite is true. This is worth knowing.

Also certain diets or approaches might click for different people. I found that the "fad" of intermittent fasting worked really well for me.

Fermented Shark. And people actually fell for it. For those unaware, sharks do not urinate, they absorb it into their flesh. So if you take shark and then ferment it you get something that smells so bad its brought to your table in a sealed container. Tourists in Iceland often eat it on a dare and are awarded a badge.



I tried it. They didn't give me a badge. We went to a place where they make it. They had sharks hanging outside, until they rotted to a certain degree. Then they buried them for a while to continue the rotting process. They served samples on a little Ritz cracker. It tasted like fishy fish, if you know what I mean. I asked if anyone ever complained that their portion wasn't rotten enough. Hakarl is what it was called I'm glad I tried it, but didn't buy any extra from the gift shop

People cant go more than 8 hours their whole life without putting something in their mouth and then everyone wonders why theyre overweight and are on 3+ forms of medication. People need to rely on doctors and the scam that is health insurance. Health insurance is NOT health ASSURANCE. Diets dont work. If you go 'on' a diet, youre eventually going to go 'off' the diet. What people need are lifestyle changes. Fasting is the answer kids.

Also i laugh at all the people who go to the gym to lose weight. If youre going to the gym for something superficial such as losing weight, you wont last very long and youll just end up quitting. To last in the gym long term, you gotta go for something bigger than that. You gotta go because you truly 'enjoy' being there. Its gotta be something 'spiritual' rather than superficial.

Sigh, if only people actually listened to me, the world will be better off in so many different ways.
Any private business open to the PUBLIC (ie. droned out casinos) cannot have a criminal trespass enforced against an individual without GOOD CAUSE (Disruptive or Disorderly conduct). You will never go to prison for being thrown out of a casino for legal advantage play and then returning because it's simply unconstitutional 'as applied' to the individual. 'As applied' constitutional issues must FIRST be raised in DISTRICT COURT (trial court) to have it thrown out. You CANNOT raise it on APPEAL This is the best kept secret in the world of casinos not just in Vegas but everywhere in the country. Thank me later.

Agree with the bolded.

It all comes down to the fact you have to change the things you do long term, not just short term. Sure, you can go on some crap diet right now and go to the gym to lose weight, but once you stop doing that, you'll just balloon right back up. Even worse, is when you're on a diet that sucks and you're just waiting out the last few days so you can stuff your face full of food. It's like an alcoholic who can't wait until Friday night to get drunk....even though it kinda seems "under control", the problem still exists and may be worse for you overall.

Nope. Only the idiots who believe nonsense and don't look at the money behind the "expert advice". The food pyramid has always been too political to be useful and the sugar industry has been far handy with bribe money.

Intermittent fasting was how many Americans used to live. You killed something, you ate it; then hunted again after a day or two of rest. Food was plentiful in certain seasons but transitions periods required reduced caloric intake.

Gyms? The greatest profit center is usually the snack bar.

Heck, I'm not proud. Send me $6.99 and I'll give you all my dietary tips on my frequent ingestion of putricene, cadaverine, spermicine and spermidine. I'll even throw in for free one of my pamphlets on the immense pleasure that can be obtained by nibbling on the sex organs of a fungus while ingesting the exact same ingredient that a female skunk uses when it feels threatened by an attacker. I used to do that quite a lot but now my situation prevents me from engaging in the practice on a frequent basis.

We’re all cave man as far as nature is concerned. Once your belly overhangs your belt, your killer genes kick in. Nature sees you as an inefficient life form consuming more than your share and threatening the survival of the rest of the gene pool. You must be eliminated. If you’re a male, your testosterone drops to keep you from procreating. If you’re a female, it increases, and you develop fertility issues. You also get facial hair and the hair on your head thins.

Then your knees go, and then your back, so you can’t climb for food or run after it. Or worse, run away from whatever is trying to eat you.

Your blood pressure increases and your arteries begin to stiffen and clog. Not just any arteries, the ones in your chest.

Get a bypass and nature always has the big one to take you out with.

The killer genes keep firing away until they take you out.
