So, how come we all have big tummys? - Page 7

post #91 of 103
Yeah, I agree with sapphiremodena, working out with a girl (or for one...) is the way to go. Gives you very good motivation. Biking with a girl...even better. I would trade all the vodka in the world for a spear of asparagus. Honestly, if I could get fresh vegetables here, let alone fresh meat, I would have not one qualm about living in the country for a very long time. All you can find regularly are cucumbers, tomatos and onions. Thank God for the first two at least. Thankfully it is not hard (comparitively) to get fruit, so that is some consolation. How the girls here are so thin and beautiful on a diet of pasta, potatoes and sausage I will never figure out. It must be malnutrition. Well, no complaints here.

Mountain Dew? Can't say i've heard of it?
If you watch the Simpsons, you may remember the scene at the World Trade Center where Homer tries to buy a drink from the street vendor and all he has is Mountain Dew or Crab Juice. Homer choses crab juice.

An all Crab Juice diet would melt the pounds off I'd imagine.

What about borscht? I saw your later post about fresh meat and vegetables, but I still had to post that so that people wouldn't get the wrong idea that all Russian food is bad.

Let's all go to Russia, if not for the food, for the ladies!

Oh yeah I know exactly where you are coming from. The only difference for me was it happened over 6 months, I was losing a stone a month at one point, was starting to get really concerend when I got to UNDER 7 stone! It was quite amusing though, baffling all the doctors that I went too as they were quite convinced that "this'll be the problem we'll just get the tests back to confirm it" tests came back negative to whatever they thought it was!.

Thankfully I am now a healthier 7 and a half stone though ideally I would like to put another couple of stone on!

nezer, raymondlin: Well, I *feel* as if I'm related to Trane, but I'm not. And the craziest thing is, I'm not even one of the taller kids at my school - above average, perhaps - but not at all "tall."

David - 7 and a half stone ? Are you sure? You are all Skin and Bones man!

Russia? All those grey-blue eyes must have a mezmerizing effect.

Actually potatos and pasta is great food. The body breaks it down easily and it is therefore much less likely to be converted to fat. Protein is exactly the opposite. Americans eat far too much protein.

Eh? If that theory was true, eating something that is very resistant to being digested, like corn shells, would turn straight into fat. It would also mean you could eat nothing but straight sugar and stay skinny. Nope, doesn't work that way. Heck, protein is the least likely thing to be converted to fat, simply due to the bio-chemical processes involved. Problem isn't too many people eating protein, it's too many people eating protein w/ high saturated fat content.

Has anyone ever thought of keeping their nose out of the fridge? (easier said than done)!

Yeah. The more you eat, the more your stomach stretches. The more it stretches, the more you need to fill it to have that feeling that it's "full" that we tend to associate with "we're not hungry anymore". It's a vicious cycle.

How about just eating three meals a day with no snacks and eliminating 90% of your intake of soft drinks? Water is good for you.
