they are banking on the non white shekels. they'll be fine
they know (as we do) that America will be non white in short time.
that will be their customer base so they are pandering to them early and often
TFW you're late to a 9 am meeting because a morbidly obese african american had health problems severe enough to stop in the middle of the highway and call an ambulance
I think I can safely assume it was a heart attack or hyperglycemia
I understand a lot of it is mental illness but it takes far more effort to get that overweight than to just not eat
Idk if you eat Popeyes at least twice a day it'll do that to you
yea I suppose so
or drinking soda like water
They probably had issues with obesity in the first place but then compounded the problem by eating enormous amounts of junk food and fast food.
soda and greasy food can get you there real fast
The worst part about soda is that they sweeten it to the point that it's not even good
I genuinely like the flavor of a lot of sodas but they add way too much sugar
Is keto just a meme? I've thought about trying it, but I'm worried that it's not something I could keep up forever
I have heard negative side effects from keto diet regarding kidneys. Try intermittent fasting instead.
@Ben Rainsford - OH Keto is legitimate but it requires a good deal of discipline. At the end of the day, it's calories in, calories out. Eat less and excercise more and you'll lose weight.
We should have done some cardio at the Renfaire
"Calories in, calories out" is a gross oversimplification. This based Asiatic man explains: https://youtu.be/tIuj-oMN-Fk
I'm on keto now
Down from my all time high of 186 to 172 this morning
Have been doing it for maybe 3 weeks
I don't know if I just had a lot of eater weight or what, because even to me that seems like way too much
@Ben Rainsford - OH I know some people who are on a keto diet and it works for them.
What worked for me in the past is figuring out how many calories and grams of fat my body burned a day and eating a deficit of both.
Whatever works just depends on your body type.
The only problem with keto is everyone I know who’s done it usually goes back to their normal size if not worse after coming off it
@Jacob a lot of it is water right at first. Your weight loss should level out to about 1-2 lbs a week depending on your deficit.
How tf is obesity real? Just stop eating till you have abs, nibba just put the fork down
The walking helps.
Keto works. Works for me, for sure. As a diet it's effective because you aren't as hungry as you'd be on just caloric restriction alone.
It's not something to do long-term.
It's a tool.
Keto is a way to teach your body to burn fat. Fasting is how you actually burn significant amounts of fat. Nobody got time to lose 1-2 lbs a week. You can lose 1-2 lbs per day depending on activity level, while boosting HGH by fasting
You can go Keto or just cut the grains, sugar, vegetable oils and get most of the same benefits
Depends on the grains, 100% whole wheat grains are fine but definitely cut out white bread and anything that contains enriched flour.
I think wheat in general is pretty bad. Glyphosate, gluten, very inflammatory... but it depends on the person
The benefits to a gluten free, high cholesterol diet go way beyond fat loss.
You make a great point about activity level.
