I ask you. What's next pepper in tea? Sprinkle of mustard powder in your cocoa? Is nothing sacred to these people?

Well interestingly enough, black pepper helps your body absorb nutrients more efficiently.

I passed the 100 kilo mark before the summer.  Never been that much of an oxygen thief before, none of my clothes fit me anymore and you can't lie to your trousers. 

So I started my Gym regime combined with, well not a diet exactly, more a don't eat like a disgusting pig regime (3 non junk meals a day, no snacking, no eating before sleeping, lots of water), on monday. 

So that + 30 mins of sickening train to fail every day with a day of on Sunday means that I have felt starving and in the kind of pain a sex offender must feel like in his first week in gen-pop.  However I lost a kilo.  Now I just need to keep it up for 4 months.  If I can lose 10 kilos I'll be content, if I can lose 15 I'll be facking delighted.

I mean, coffee is a diuretic anyway, right? And now we are adding salt to that shit. Am I going to have to drink water the rest of the day just to make up for my morning coffee? That i put salt in like a fucking idiot, instead of delicious milk and lovely sugar like a normal human being?
Milk and sugar? Do you have that coffee with your bowl of Coco Pops in the morning?
It's just a little pinch of salt, not a cup of seawater. I bet you're one of of those types who freaks out over pineapple on pizza.

Apparently the diuretic effects of coffee are relatively negligible.

Milk goes on cocoa pops (and it's for children), I drink coffee out of a coffee cup. I suppose that is fuddy duddy of me as well?? Enjoy your salty coffee on children's cereal, probably served on a chipped tile in a boardgame cafe.

Can I just shock you? Salty coffee and deliberately courting ketosis both sound like ideas which, if not terrible, are questionable at best. AT BEST.

Salted (not salty) coffee is fine. I'm fairly certain keto diets are a load of guff though.

Well given that Keto is essentially low carb plus and most carbs come from processed sugar (including booze) then it’s hard to see why it’s not beneficial based on eliminating those alone.

fuck yeah

well done poo

as for the ketosis debate, all of those diets sound a lot like reinventing the wheel to me. Just:
- cook
- eat more veg
- eat more fruit
- drink more water
- cut down on the shite
- find out what an appropriate portion size is and stick to it

I'll readily admit that I'm no food scientist (although I strongly suspect that none of the keto evangelists on Youtube are, either) and my opinion is based on observing only one person. It seems to me there is a fairly significant difference between cutting down on sugar and eliminating carbs entirely, though. I don't think it's doing them any direct harm, but it seems like a lot of fuss for no apparent benefit.

Have a friend in America who has lost a ton of weight in the past month due to being sick (nothing gravely serious), that's an option. He's been posting about how he's down to a stick thin 180lbs (13 stone), friends commenting tips for him to gain his weight back. He's shorter than me and when I got up to 170lbs in lockdown I looked fat af.

Best tip for losing weight is to go vegan - Or at least quit eggs and dairy.

210 lbs

+1lb this week (-5lbs, 16lbs to go)


Not too bothered about this. In fact, bit of a result after last weekend, which turned into a celebratory bender - 20-odd pints of Butty Bach and a few roast chickens.

To be fair i've been vegan for two years and i'm the fattest i've ever been.

I'd say vegetarian is the sweet spot for health.

Are vegetarian stuff like the no bull burger and Linda McCartney sausages healthier than actual meat? They must be full of god knows what.

I think it comes down to what you mean by "healthier".

I've mentioned upthread about how I've switched away from calorie counting to focussing more on eliminating ultra processed foods with inflammatory effects from my diet, and vegan foods - in particular when they are trying to emulate meats - can be some of the worst offenders in this area. If I were eating vegan and sticking away from UPFs I'd go with a bean burger rather than one of those Impossible Burgers, because they're full of sunflower oil and binding agents and many of the other things I try to avoid.

That's not to say that "proper" sausages and burgers are therefore healthier for you, of course, just that depending on your aims the definition of "healthier" is likely to be more complicated than just the presence or lack of meat, and my own preference would be for natural, whole foods[1] whether I was eating meat or not.
 1. Both "natural" and "whole" are wanky words that I'm not fully onboard with, but they're quicker to right than talking about non-ultra-processed all the time.

Well no but you dont have to eat that stuff really.

Eating unhealthy processed shite will probably always be unhealthy unprocesses shite regardless.

Vegetarian and vegan food is unhealthier than it has ever been. Vegan chocolate, donuts, burgers. It's not just salad any more. Great selection, but the idea that it's inherently a "skinny" diet isn't true.

I eat Linda McCartney sausages, Quorn nuggets, tofu etc, and I couldn't tell you what plants they're made from. I don't know what any of it actually is. In terms of healthiness, it's probably no better than mystery meat. I'm still a fat fuck.

I lost more weight switching from lager to spirits than from meat to fake meat.

One major impediment to weight loss is glucose-fructose syrup under whatever name the food producers want to hide it.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwivn4eDsIbzAhUPcBQKHb9mBykQFnoECAMQAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thetimes.co.uk%2Farticle%2Fbeware-the-devils-candy-z0ct2twgzp0&usg=AOvVaw16csKdc57pXcCn5w82kS7C

It's in almost everything these days, but avoiding it where possible might help you lose weight. Along with eating less.

And ignoring calorific values can be useful. A bale of hay has a very high calorific value but not in any way usable as energy or fat production by you.

Remember always that fat has a high calorific value but cannot be laid down as fat in the body. Although the food that you continue to eat with it will be.
