Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

You really think all the disease of civilization would be drastically reduced if stopped believing in CICO? humans might start investigating/experimenting with actual solutions to the problems they face. CICO is simply not an answer to the question. CICO is the equivalent of answering the question ...

how did you manage to consume an overall caloric surplus for the entire week in only 3.5 days? That's impressive! Were you only eating once per day in the 3.5days of feast?
1-2 meals per day. it's easier after a 3.5 day fast.

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

perhaps brute should clarify why he is so adamant and angry about the dogma of the CICO pseudo-science zealots. by adhering to their faith and ignoring the real science behind nutrition and biology, the CICO zealots are responsible for the deaths of millions of people by heart disease, diabetes, cer...

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

Not doubting your results. I'm curious if you have theories as to why your hypothesis was incorrect? similar to jennypenny. the 800-900kcal/day meal consisted mainly of carbs. brute's hypothesis is that these carbs prevented his body from accessing body fat, thus preventing fat loss. the other one ...

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

while eating an estimated 2,000kcal surplus per day for a month.

in another experiment, brute ate the same 800-900kcal meal as the only meal every day for a month without losing any weight.

CICO just isn't true. no need to make up excuses.

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

personally, brute found the costs of tracking calories extremely high, and the benefits to be zero. brute also found out that CICO is not true while tracking every single calorie for a month. eating an average of close to 4000kcal/day, he lost 5-10 lbs (it's been a while so he forgot). the math ende...

Re: Jordan Peterson

Manson's a much better writer.

are these just different individuals arriving at similar rulesets? are the rulesets innate in.. humans? the current societal context? isn't that part of Peterson's hypothesis, that they are innate and are constantly being rediscovered?

Re: Going without a fridge

brute has been wondering about a smaller fridge, too, as he rarely uses more than one shelf even after a large grocery haul. the thing is that most apartments come with a giant fridge, and electricity is cheap. so it doesn't make much sense to upgrade while the old one is still running.
