I grew up pre-HFCS and with a stay at home mom who cooked from scratch. I played outside like any other kid. I ran, climbed trees, investigated the sewers, roller-skated and rode my bike everywhere. At age 5 it was go outside and play and don't come back until dinner time. And I was a frickin' girl for chrissakes. I roamed free from age 5. I also was a kid back when there was only ONE fat kid in the whole school. It wasn't me.
Anyway, keep up your good work, Chaco. You're gonna wake up from it some day. I saw your pictures. You're all puffy and swollen from doing unnatural stuff to your body. You brag about your metabolic giftedness but you are gonna wake up from your dream state all broken just like us women if you keep up the illusion that you can just tweak a little bit more to get the body comp you desire. Nobody cares about how much you can lift. You sound just like me when I stepped on the scale and lost another pound. Everything is working perfect because I lost another pound. Got it all under control. What you are doing isn't natural.
