    Alrighty then.

    So you're saying I can't lose 174 lbs if I eat sweet things? I'll take that under advisement.

    Oh, wait. I already did lose 174 lbs eating sweet things. Never mind.

    :laugh: Love this!

    Have a watch/listen then make your own decision

    And after watching Lustig, be sure to see this so that you get views from both sides of the sugar fence:

    I eat loads of sugar daily and it hasn't prevented me dropping fat. It's just a carb*.


    *unless you're diabetic
    Not to worry with enough carbs / sugar Type 2 diabetes is what you have to look forward to. As well as insulin shots, cuts that won’t heal, going blind and if you are lucky you will get a electric wheel chair when they amputate your legs.



    WOW. Drama much?

    If someone chooses to eat a crapload of sugar in their 20s and 30s, I'm not going to feel sorry for them when various health issues pop up at the age of 50.

    You won't even feel a teensy bit sorry for us? :sad:

    My opinion: sugar is toxic to your body.

    Lol, you don't have a very well informed opinion then

    As for the fruit question:
    Fruits are okay, but too much is still too much. Fructose is harder to process and is more likely to go to your fat cells. Choose veggies over fruit when you can. Your body knows what to do with Glucose better.

    Bro-science or real?

    I see way too many people complain about not enjoying their diet on the forums.

    Orthorexia is killing us all
    It sneak into everyone's diet (I am no exception)

    However, I've noticed many user practice arbitrary food elimination with no understanding of dosage or context.

    Get over your orthorexia, give up the arbitrary food rules , COMMIT TO YOURSELF "STOP ELIMINATING FOODS YOU ENJOY" and you will see the enjoyment of your diet increase.

    Drink anything that fits your macros.

    Enjoyable foods are important for mental balance so you don't go crazy, if you need some tasty food everyday you're pretty normal, and if you eat it you just won't necessarily be douche with everyone... you'll be successful or on your way to being successful instead.

    This post may seem negative but it really isn't I really want everyone to do well, I just get frustrated the food industry has us all wondering what good and what's bad. When really most of us have no clue and like to make posts about pinning obesity on one singular food item while completely lacking an understanding of global concepts.

    Hope you liked the rant...

    Fixed.

    OKAY. Biggest HIGH FIVE I have ever given on all the forums EVER. Be my bestie?

    I am just CRACKING up because I looked at your diary, and you have at least one "sweet" a day, whether it be a chocolate protein bar, angel food cake, maple syrup, etc... Hypocritical much?!?!


    IIFYM!!!!!
    I think you missed the "(I am no exception)" part of his post.

    I think you missed the "Sweets should be a weekly cheat not a daily one" part of his post.

    I see way too many people complain about not losing weight in the forums

    Sugar is killing us all
    It sneak into everyone's diet (I am no exception)

    However, I've noticed many user diary's have at least two or more portions of sweets* everyday
    Sweets are a weekly cheat not a daily one.

    Get over your chocolate addictions, give up the processed junk , COMMIT TO YOURSELF "CHEATS ARE ONCE A WEEK" and you will see weight come flying off.

    Don't drink anything but water.

    Cheats are for mental balance so you don't go crazy, If you need some everyday you're as bad as an alcoholic, the difference is you just won't necessarily be douche with everyone... you'll be huge or on your way to being huge instead. (For the Ecto's Skinny fat is not better)


    *By sweets I mean anything sweet. No forgiving sweeteners... They're not better for you than sugar... none of them are so don't be fooled. Most are actually worst for you. One such example is Splenda it's sugar treated with arsenic. Look any sweetener up and you will find problems with them all. Even Stevia has is drawbacks, like lack of proper studies on it. The food industry is testing these products on us not releasing studied products for us.

    This post may seem negative but it really isn't I really want everyone to do well, I just get frustrated the food industry has us all wondering what good and what's bad. When really we all have a pretty good idea what's good for us.

    Hope you liked the rant...

    Um, a 4 gram square of 72% dark chocolate is not a "cheat", and I've lost weight having it as a daily staple, thank you very much. Stop giving generalized, unsolicitied advice.

    I love my sugar, breads, pastas and other occasional junk food. Any diet that forces you to give up the stuff you love is doomed to failure.
