  • My guess is you aren't married. If you are..so sad for her and I vote she takes you to the cleaners.
    Ummm.... Canio is probably one of the nicest people here and of all the men here is probably one of the most understanding towards women's issues.

      No worries. We're all entitled to our opinions. If everyone agreed the internet would be a boring place.

            Thanks all. I am married (as many have said) and very happily so. My point was not that women are led by hormones, but that many women here (as Twibble states) have some kind of hormonal issue that makes losing weight/fat or gaining optimal health, even through primal, very difficult. I find that rather frightening. I read the young dude n=1 and think, "Yeah, perhaps that works for him" where as many of the women it is "nothing works for me" I find that depressing. I admire the fact they try, but it is rather daunting.

            If I were a woman without said issues I might read many of the posts here by women and think they do not apply or that primal is only for persons with hormonal issues. I find the n=1 experiments done by many of the women here to be just as bizarre as the bro-science, which I also take with a grain of salt (or two).
            Yeah I find this to be true as well. The women I know who eat paleo don't have hormonal issues -- but they all crossfit. The ones that I do see struggle with their weight while trying Paleo aren't very strict. Many people who try Primal decide to leave the exercise and weightlifting out. I think it's waaay more important than Mark Sisson says -- intermittent fasting + compound movements and occasional high intensity sprinting == hormonal magic.

            I wish in his next revision of the PB he revisits his 80% 20% macros (diet to exercise) - exercise is way more important than I think most people acknowledge since it is so conventionally wisdo.

              No. He is still numero uno. His combination of ignorance and arrogance still surpasses obnoxiousness any day.

                        • @Thefastcat, re intermittent fasting. It seems like there are many women who have trouble with if and the women specific data is quite mixed. I do better skipping breakfast mostly and the occasional diner but I haven't tried it beyond that.

                            Whoa, this thread sure went in some different directions. Without getting into the verdict, I thought this was an interesting aspect. The pictures of Zimmerman taken on the night of the killing, do not show a 'tubby' man. Zimmerman that night looks like he is 'normal' weight.

                            Now a year+ later he is very overweight. I've been wondering different things about this.

                            Has he been putting on weight from stress? Prison food? Comfort food? Intentionally, to try and make himself look 'weaker'? More 'innocent' (fat people are often stereotyped as incompetent, ineffectual, not often as malevolent)?

                            I will be interested to see if he drops the weight, and if so, how quickly.

                            • my vote is stress, he's gained a fair bit of weight over the last year
                              beautiful
                              yeah you are

                              Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                                My vote is defensive strategy, smart considering most of the pics of TM posted/shown are of when he was 6-12yrs old

                                He also tanned so he would be darker. Also smart since everyone kept labeling him as white instead of Jewish Hispanic
