How much are you exercising? What are your goals with this?  I have to say that simply not eating is a horrible way to lose weight. 

Doing every other day BJJ.  I know what I am missing (at least I think I do) strength training.  I am going to go back to doing 5x5 on my fast days in the morning.

been reading up on autophagy.  Pretty interesting concept.  Tons of science behind it.  A dr won the Nobel prize for it in 2016.

Moreover, studies have shown that the body adjusts to the lower caloric intake, so you have to eat even less to continue losing weight (or worse, gain it back quickly when you resume normal caloric intake).  

I wasn’t going to inject myself into the conversation because what lostone’s doing is so different and I know nothing about it.  But I do know that low calorie diets have a shelf life, especially if they’re done for a long period without exercise.

Lost a good bit of weight when I did calorie counting but I hit a point where I started feeling sick all the time. Wasn't my goal weight but I wasn't going to push it given the signs.

How many days in a week are you not eating anything at all? Because doing all of that while fully fasting for days seems untenable. It's a recipe to get sick or injured. 

If you're doing BJJ 4x a week and rolling hard while lifting the other days, it's really hard to not lose weight assuming you're eating a reasonable diet. Doing all of that while in starvation mode isn't going to make you better, just lighter.

So I am eating MWF and roll on those days. Weekends will depend on how I feel.  I will probably eat Saturday.  I haven’t been weight lifting lately, so I am going to add that back on my off days.  Today I will have a pound carrots and onions and about 7-11oz of grilled chicken thighs.

List of Racist Statements by Members of the ‘Squad’ (So Far)

Where is the outrage?

Oh my GOD, just look at this racism!!!

As Politico noted in 2018, she challenged incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), who is white, on “ideological, generational and racial grounds, arguing that the 10-term congressman was not in step with his majority-minority district and was too cozy with corporate donors.”

Clearly Ayanna Pressley is racist!  Just look at this racism!

“The Massachusetts 7th is the most diverse and most unequal district in the state, requiring a representative whose experiences are reflective of the people,”

SB thinks this is “racist”, but says that Trump telling people of color to “go back to where they came from” is okay, totally not racist.

Can't believe the right is overusing the word to the point of meaninglessness like that. Surely they understand and appreciate that some things actually are racist and need to be defined as such.

Stopped reading there.

Oh, you should have gone there and read their “racist” comments, which I quoted in subsequent posts.  It’s hilarious.

And while we’re on the topic, here are a few other gems from Trump...

Haiti had sent 15,000 people. They "all have AIDS,” he grumbled, according to one person who attended the meeting and another person who was briefed about it by a different person who was there.

Forty thousand had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added. Once they had seen the United States, they would never 'go back to their huts' in Africa, recalled the two officials...

Following his “****hole” comment, Trump “suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.

So somebody should gather a lot of videos of racists yelling “go back to _____” at innocent people...and then post those videos every time some knucklehead MAGAN says that Trump’s tweets weren’t racist.

 

Trump isn't a racist, he's just a huge Happy Gilmore fan.

Some part of them are racists themselves and use it for cover because they know racism is unpopular.  

Some part of them just don’t care about racism.  They’ll make soft condemnations and quickly move to some else because they actually don’t care if their side is racist.

Some part of them are legitimately convinced that all of this is not actually racism.  These tend to be the hard core partisans who blindly accept whatever their side says, and are the most influenced by the denials from party leaders (McConnell).

But the major point here is this — Republicans and conservatives en masse are defending and condoning racism.  And their supporters — like WFW and SB — are likewise condoning and defending that racism.

If it means destroying SB’s claims in a hilarious fashion, I’ll give them one more view.

It was a very poor choice of words in the original tweet.  Trump has never been a smooth politician like Bill Clinton or Mitt Romney.  

That said Trump has won numerous awards for helping minorities prior to running for president.  I think the original tweet can be construed as racist but Trump is by no means a racist.  

Was also sued for housing discrimination against black people and called for the execution of innocent black teenagers.

Pretty sure Omar and Tlaib are for real racist against Jewish people.  Do you doubt that?

I doubt it.  Show me what comments they made that were racist.
