Things that are pissing you off. - Page 3090

post #46336 of 67856
JJ, you just reminder me of my brother-in-laws, mother-in-law (my wifes, brothers, mother-in-law). she was always a very kind and lovely woman, and when she was really ill with cancer her entire personality changed. she became very aggressive and hostile. almost exactly like what you describe above.

for many of her family members and children, that was more difficult for them to bear than the illness itself. especially her younger grand-children, who could not understand what was happening other than that all of a sudden grandma was very mean and hard on them. it was a really sad and difficult thing to see.

cancer is a real piece of shit. it brings so much pain in so many ways.

On an increasingly regular basis, a woman in my office comes over to the desk next to mine to give diet and exercise advise to a woman that is easily 50 pounds lighter than her. Not surprisingly, her advice is pseudoscience shit.

This sounds like all women in my office. They all talk like experts on losing weight, but never seem to lose any. I try to give them advice being that I lost 100 pounds, but they don't want to hear it.

That is a really strange phenomenon. I never see bad guitar players lecturing good players on how to arch their fingers or hold the pick. I never see people with bad grammar lecturing others on how to form sentences correctly. But I frequently hear fat people holding forth on the One True Way to lose weight.

To suggest eating one small meal a day is not the best dieting advice, either.

GreenFrog does not say something incredibly stupid. Well done.

when i write the words "does not," i often hit the space button too early and it comes out as "doe snot." and spell check doesn't highlight it because they are both properly spelled words.

What is intrinsically wrong with eating one meal a day? I probably eat one a meal a day four or five days a week. If I have two the second is usually just a lunch portion salad. I feel better, look better, and all my health indicators are far superior prior to my adopting this practice. And really, what's healthier? Three squares a day with 100 #s extra weight or - 100#s and eating one meal a day? Just intuitively, which do you think is healthier?

I think GF and I are skeptical of the one small meal a day theory, not a one meal a day theory.

Higher blood pressure, higher blood sugar, weaker immune systems... at least in mice. I imagine if you're eating one meal a day it's not enough calories either so your metabolism just shuts down.

There was a study conducted on normal weight people where they consumed equal number of calories and content as they had previously been eating. Do we see the flaw there? Also, given that study maintained the previous calories, your final sentence does not match with your first sentence. Additionally, if one is overweight, the goal would of course be to consume fewer calories so your last sentence again really is not responsive to the topic.

A proper experiment would be to take a group of typical US fatties, on a typical US fattie diets, and divide into two groups. Group one continues on as usual. Group two gets put on a mild exercise regime and on a one meal a day plan very low in simple carbs but high in clean proteins and veggies. Come back a year later and let's see who is healthier.

I would also suggest anyone interested read up on "intermittent fasting" and the positive health benefits this seems to yield. The "fasting" can consist of days with < 600 calories or so so it's not what you think.

Regardless, people should do what is comfortable for them. If you can eat one meal a day and not bonk out then go for it. It's when people force these fad diets on themselves that they can cause problems.

I could probably live on one meal a day, as when working I'm never really hungry. On the other hand I eat out of boredom most of the time, so I never really have a chance to find out.

That was my biggest problem. I'd grab a bag of simple carbs and chemicals, i.e. Cheetos or something, and mechanically eat the bag as I read work reports at night or watched the TV. When I first reformed my eating patterns I'd find myself wandering around the kitchen itching to grab something. That goes away.

Sounds like it is working for you, and that is all that matters. Many people use intermittent fasting, which limits eating to a time window each day. A 6 hour window is typical.
