    Rust

    Derp we rust, Dying of old age is rusting,

    What is rust? it is oxidation. It's quite ironic really, the one thing that gives us life, also eventually takes it away.

    Everthing on the planet is in a process of a slow burn (it is in the presence of oxygen). if enough heat is added tho, this process will explode exponentially causeing what we see as "burning".

    We rust but can we find how to renew? I'm with Derp on this. I believe in science. Modern science is still in its infancy relative to human existence; we should be more patient, but then again, I think our advancements are growing exponentially and we will see great leaps in our lifetime, possibly even immortality if only on a virtual level.

That trick actually worked for me at one point, but it's so hard to keep it up. My instinct is to wolf down my food. I must have been a dog in my past life.
    One issue with losing weight through hypnosis is that the suggestions given are generally only a tool to help a person reach their goal. They need to be reinforced periodically to continue to have effect.

    great writeup! last night despite drinking 2 big glasses of whole milk with supplemental protein, 2 bowls of fruit salad, 1 baked sweet potato and some dark chocolate, I was still itchingly hungry. I was pretty sure I was xcraving eggs but it was too late at night for me to bother. I havent eaten any eggs for a few days Noe, before which I was regularly consuming around 7 a day.

    I'm thinking micronutrient defeciency of some sort. egg scramble is on the menu for breakfast this morning.

    Haha, it's all coming! Cars that drive themselves seem to have taken priority over flying vessels, probably because we haven't established enough worthy land drivers much less air ones. heh

    Flying cars? Seriously NH - JETPACKS! Get your priorities straight.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I absolutely know the feeling. I had it whenever I was on the macro-specific diets, and couldn't have what I was craving. I would just keep grazing until I actually ate what I really wanted, even a tiny quantity of it. It's insane how crazy it works.

    One of my fav parts of these articles is the one that dismantles the whole 'food addiction'/'sugar addiction' myth. It went a long way to help my food guilt over my low-carb inappropriate love of apples!

    Guys, this is crazy. I am back to 135 from Monday's 137 lbs by missing a lifting session (because I hurt back on Monday), not fasting or missing meals. I think I will try only 2 lifting sessions a week with more swimming and yoga and, of course my martial arts. I am really not happy about evening classes, but they force me to sleep later, and maybe it is simply a better schedule?

    It is very hard to get myself going for the evening class, BUT once I am THERE, I feel awesome.

    A lifting session encourages water and glycogen retention. You tend to drink more and eat more after exercising. Typically, people who start lifting without changing anything in their diet gain weight. You aren't down 2 lbs, you're just shifting around water and glycogen. Lifting less is likely a recipe for fat gain.

    Wanna look great for a small period of time? Do a heavy weight session, follow it up with a sweaty cardio session to lose water, then do a dry refeed - very lean protein and dry starch, like baked white potatoes or plain rice. Don't drink anything. Your body will still shuttle glycogen to muscles but you won't retain all the water that comes along with a refeed (I get so thirsty when I eat starch). But the look is fleeting. It's a "pre-contest trick."
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Choco, for gods' sake, why you keep talking to me like I am a newb coming of a CW and did not try anything at all?

    I was lifting religiously for 4 years, ate HC/LF on these days and what did it get me? Eating too much and growing fatter & fatter. Doing the same thing and expecting different results is Einstein's definition of insanity. Lifting is great, but it does not give me miraculous results. It just does not.

    And, I am not interested in the life of martyrdom. I just want to have a firmer body. 24/7. Not a super-duper special occasions look!
