  • Thanks for your replies everyone :) I will be drinking tea with my early morning workout. Then breakfast afterwards. Glad others are finding this kind of schedule works for them. Will be getting some protein powder to make shakes n stuff probably.
  • thanks :) I'm a single mum and if I go to the gym, I'll have to factor in the cost of babysitting each time I want to go, not just gym membership. I worked out that a home gym would pay itself off pretty quickly, plus the convenience of working out when I want and not having to get a babysitter. So I saved up. And now it's…
  • Thanks :)

  • fake one for a fiver from poundstretchers (not bad value because it looks good and is 4 feet tall and the house we live in is tiny so it's just the right size for the house).... plus the bog standard fairy lights for 2.99 also from poundstretchers and a couple of pieces of tinsel. I gave the kids scissors, glue, shiny…
  • I'm in the UK and nasal spray vaccines are being offered to 4 yr olds, and maybe some other sections of the population (can't remember exactly which people are being recommended them and which are recommended the injections) they're definitely real.
  • Okay if that's all that's happening then maybe she wasn't breaking guidelines. I agree people are flag happy. For breaking community guidelines people are supposed to use the "report" flag. "spam" is only for bot type spam like the resident baba black magic dude and the "abuse" is supposed to be only for extremely blatant…
  • Yeah but if you bring general relativity into it, gravity exists because of mass, and weight exists because of gravity, so weight does have quite a lot to do with mass. Plus the more obvious fact that as long as the gravitational field is constant (which is pertinent to the fact that everyone discussing this is weighing…
  • ^^^^ this this whole "muscle is heavier than fat" "yes it is" "no it isn't" "yes it is you know I meant the same volume" blah blah blah blah blah ongoing stupid debate would never arise if people would just learn what density means. muscle is denser than fat.
  • If a doctor prescribed you heroin (yes that is a prescription drug for certain medical conditions although its pharmaceutical name is different) does that mean it's okay to encourage people to take heroin without a doctor's prescription? There are some situations where VLCDs are medically justified, but for the general…
  • Muscle tissue helps to keep you warm more than fat does. Fat insulates you, but muscle tissue generates heat. If you lose weight, you frequently lose both, hence feeling cold all the time. Loss of lean tissue such as muscle isn't good for health, so my advice is to try to regain some lean mass by working out with…
  • Because of your medical condition, I think you should ask a doctor for advice about how to lose weight safely. There's a risk of loss of muscle tissue when losing weight, even for someone without a medical condition. I'm concerned that in your case loss of muscle tissue from dieting could make your condition worse. I'm not…
  • I'd like to know what posts I've been flagged for. The new format of the forum makes it really difficult to check threads you've replied to and find your earlier posts as it is... trying to find what post someone flagged as abuse or whatever is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
  • You're an omnivore. If you want to eat chicken, eat chicken.
  • You cant accept yourself and not accept yourself at the same time.... maybe someone who accepts and likes themselves might be careless in their choice of words and not mean it when they say they can't be happy or live their life while they're fat, but if they truly believe that, then it's toxic and they obviously don't…
  • ^^^ this as for how to spot it in people you're trying to help.... things like saying "I hate myself" as opposed to "I hate being fat". Any sign of "I want to lose weight so I can be happy/like myself/live my life/etc".... you can do all of these things (and many others) while you are fat. If someone seems to mentally have…
  • the numbers vary wildly depending on the amount of exercise you do. the figures 2000 for women and 2500 for men imply that the person is fairly active. nowadays, people are more sedentary, so burn less. Most sedentary women will gain weight on 2000 calories/day. However, back in the day when people actually walked…
  • If he's using certain kinds of spray paint, pesticides or other chemicals that are harmful if inhaled then that's probably why he's wearing a mask and any other protective gear he wears. Basic health and safety.
  • reception age child (yep British system - equivalent to kindergarten in terms of what they're learning but the kids are a year younger) - just gets reading/phonics as homework, plus a list of "challenge" tasks that include things like sitting and reading a book with a family member, that kind of thing, and we're also…
  • and in my family too and I'm not even Irish.
  • ^^^^ this If you really want to log it, just look up how many calories per minute you burn in each position and log it as sex in whatever position. If you're trying to guess what exercises approximate to it, then you're going to end up with inaccurate logging, and usually that means overestimating calorie burns, and that…
  • I was allowed to drink alcohol as a child, can't remember from what age, wine in my lemonade at Christmas, that kind of thing. Always with the family. So when I was a teenager, alcohol was no big deal and I didn't ever get stupid drunk. I went out drinking with friends and some of them got stupid drunk but I knew when to…
  • Well, as I'm from Britain, I've been to London but it's not really that far from where I was born.... The furthest place I've been to is: Algeria (furthest south); Bahrain/UAE (furthest East) Actually, Bahrain/UAE/Saudi might be the furthest South too because I don't know the lattitudes off the top of my head. Furthest…
  • yes, not eating enough food has that effect on me, especially a lack of carbohydrate, fat or vitamin D. I've even seen research that shows a correlation between a lack of fat in the diet and feeling suicidal. a lot of people cut fat out of their diet altogether thinking it's bad, but it's not, it's an essential nutrient.…
  • Bushmeat was eaten for millenia prior to urbanisation and diseases were not spreading through poplations. Urbanisation is a major factor here. Disease can spread rapidly through an urban population where there's limited access to clean water and poor management of waste and sewage. Addressing poverty is also vital. And…
  • All the Homo erectuses died because they didn't know how to eat exactly 1641.35 calories every day, and so could not evolve into Homo sapiens. Therefore none of us exist and the internet is a giant super-computer built by some alien race and none of us really exist, we just think we do because Jean Paul Sartre.
