LOL yeah I can't take it back now.

I just know that from experimenting with very low carb, I had a difficult time passing. Carbs absorb water to facilitate passage.

I haven't had any issues in that department. I'm not going as often, but I'm eating a LOT less food. It is regular though. Thanks for asking!

you gatta grease that shit with bacon fat... A few TBL with every meal (just the fat, not the bacon) and you will be solid.

remember weight loss != health.

i looked and felt better at 210, than i have at 195. and ive also been bad at 210....


I lost a hell of a lot of weight, best health wise was when i reduced my calories, and exersized regularly... Starving yourself will only end up with you looking like your starving.

I am eating adequate amounts of food for what I'm trying to do. My doctor says I'm fine. I feel fine, I have plenty of energy and get as much or more exercise than most.

But thanks for your input.

^^ There's a difference between starving yourself and not stuffing your face every time you're hungry.

6-800 calories a day does sound pretty damn low especially if you arent like a 120 lb girl. Seems like a way to lose weight quickly but doesnt sound very sustainable. I would imagine your body would become in a constant state of mild starvation after a while and as soon as you jumped the calorie intake up its gonna wanna pack on the weight quickly. Clearly I am no nutritionist though only going off what sounds reasonable haha.

Not generally correct. Eat refined carbs (white bread, pasta, cereal, rice) and it will make you constipated as hell. Fiber (especially soluble fiber) holds water, not the carbs.

When I went on paleo, I was eating loads of vegetables and nuts, so that helped. And even though my fiber intake was reduced from before the paleo diet due to the lack of beans and whole grain pasta/bread/cereal, I still did not have any trouble as far as bowel movements are concerned. I surmise that is because of my massive fat intake on the paleo (125-150 grams). (plus of course some fiber from nuts, vegetables, and fruits)

Status check: Just paid $1.29 for a bunch of cilantro. I'm happy to have some on hand for the next week+, but if I end up composting it I won't be upset.

Is anyone who was paying through the nose for this stuff 2+ years ago still paying through the nose for it?

I keep a large mason jar in my fridge with some water in it and put my bunches of cilantro, basil, and green onion in it just to have on hand. The cilantro and basil will keep for 2 weeks that way. The green onion is probably closer to a month for the stalks and pretty much infinite for the bulbs. You'll want to change the water out every so often.

Also, if you go to an Asian grocery store, all of the above is dirt fucking cheap. You can also get a little bit more mileage out of the cilantro if you put a ziplock over the leafy part in addition to the stalks being in the jar, but I rarely do this.

We stopped a while ago, but I think it's even way more popular now. I've actually got several foodie friend couples (they both work together at a local high end restaurant) who do it and rave about it. To their credit, I think it's gotten a lot better since my wife and I tried it out (and it was pretty good when we did it).

I think these companies are doing pretty well, but I haven't done any research to support it. Just general observations from people talking about it and increased advertising from several different companies.

Such a waste of plastic. I hope you guys enjoy your meals while the ocean gets dumped with more plastic. Not everything gets recycled.

^ That did bother us when we did it. I know they've gotten better with their packaging...but there's no way that it's not a huge waste in the garbage sector.
