The Anti Diet

The Anti Diet
Ok, so this is the blog post I get asked for again & again. I’m not going to give you some faddy diet that will help you lose a stone, only to find it again next month. Why? Because it’s a waste of both of our time & it’s bad for you. That’s why. Instead, I will give you my tips, rules & advice to living your life, & losing weight along the way. 1. I’m going to go out on a limb here & say that as you’re reading my blog, you like the internet. That’s your goal. 2. 3. 4. You should start eating at around a 3 or a 4. If you wait until 2 or 1, your body will go into starvation mode which means when you do finally eat, your body will hold on to every bit of fat it can get it’s hands on incase you decide to starve it again. If you accidentally get to this level of hunger, take it slow. If you’re actively trying to lose weight, stop at 5. You’ll soon train your body to eat what’s just right for you. 5. Sweets/Candy Your body’s lacking Chromium, carbon phosphorus, sulphur, Tryptophan. 6. 8. 9. 10.

25 Best Moments of the Grumpy Cat 80K views 500 days ago by LostInSpace If you think you’re having a bad day, just Google “grumpy cat”, and you’ll know instantly who’s doing even worse than you are. Tard is a mix-breed, but looks to have some Ragdoll or Snowshoe in her. Website: Like Dislike 0 points Vote: Portion Control | Helaine Ciporen’s DIABETES FAMILIES One way to eat healthier is to control your portions. Your body gets something it needs from every food group. Observe how much you are eating now, and then slowly try to whittle down to the recommended portions. This way your body will get all the nutrition it needs as it gets used to reasonable portions. It’s easy to estimate how much you are eating simply by using your hands. Your palm = 3 oz = one portion of meat, chicken or fish Your fist = 1 cup = one portion of rice, pasta, or cereal Your thumb = 1 tablespoon = one portion of salad dressing The tip of you thumb = 1 teaspoon = one portion of butter, margarine or mayonnaise Over the years, restaurant portions have grown larger, “super sizing” is in, and we got used to eating more.

A letter to Senior Pastor Lawrence Khong | #spuddings Dear Pastor Khong My name is Kirsten. Like you, I too think of Family as a noble endeavour. However, I was confused by your reference to “homosexual activists” in your statement to Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong. You see, unlike you, I support the repeal of Section 377A of our country’s penal code. I cannot wait for this discriminatory, hateful piece of legislation to be tossed out. In your statement you asserted that “[e]xamples from around the world have shown that the repeal of similar laws have led to negative social changes, especially the breakdown of the family as a basic building block and foundation of the society.” You claim that the repeal of Section 377A “takes away the rights of parents over what their children are taught in schools, especially sex education.” Even after Section 377A is repealed, you will still have your right to your religion and your religious beliefs. Pastor Khong, I too love Singapore. Much has been said in Singapore about inclusivity.

7 Day Detox - Weight Loss Diet Plan - Detox Diets In my quest to strike a middle ground between eating out and eating sprouts, I’ve done GOOP’s liquid harvest (yay!) and I’ve gone gluten free (boo!). GOOP’s veggie-heavy eating made me a ball of energy who came thisclose to grabbing people on the L train and telling them, “TRY THIS! But I ain’t no quitter – and thankfully, I’ve got help. For those without a lot of kitchen savoir-faire, Juliette outlines an easy plan with options. DAY 1 The reliance on produce – especially fruit – in this plan is front and center, so I decide to start my days with smoothies. It’s undressed salad for lunch (zzzz), and by dinner, the creativity starts to slide – as does the will to come home from a long day and start cooking. DAY 2 – 4 My blender hasn’t gotten this much attention since Cinco de Mayo, but I’m thinking for lunch, it’s time to explore the world of commercially-prepped smoothies. Oh, and I’ve solved the potato issue: Stewed tomatoes and diced onions. About Jenny Got one I should try?

How to Love an Introvert Your first lessons will be in silence. Learn them well. In the initial awkward moments spent in trailed off conversations, her silence will unsettle you. Discard your smirks, your winks, your jokes and your faces. Do not expect your openness to be hers. Rejoice when she finally recognises the light of your being enough to reveal her own, but be patient. See her now then, clearly and brightly. Your last lessons will last and linger. You will pray to be the answer.

Hustlin': Why We Need to Stop Obsessing Over What College Majors Make Us Rich | Education on GOOD Hustlin' is back as a permanent series. Every week, we'll go beyond the pitying articles about recession-era youth and illuminate ways our generation is coping. The last few years may have been a rude awakening, but we're surviving. Here's how. Every few months, like clockwork, a new study (the latest from researchers at Georgetown [PDF]) concludes that arts majors can't get jobs and that engineering degrees are the only way to guarantee a living wage. Then The New York Times prints the study's conclusions under a glib headline like "Want a Job? We get it, Georgetown, English majors are poor. A future of unhappy robots is pretty bleak. The broader the major, the more well-rounded the student. There's no getting around the fact that certain majors are more pre-professional than others. Where you go to school counts far more than what you major in. If we shun certain majors, their fields—and the people who work in them—will continue to be undervalued.

An Open Letter to the Artist Behind the "Lady Avengers" Starring Alison Brie and Amber Heard By Rob Payne | Think Pieces | January 17, 2013 | Comments (169 View Dear JoshWMC, May I call you Josh? First of all, I'd be remiss not to begin by praising your obvious artistic talent and technical skill set. The problem is that no matter how good your 'shops of Alison Brie, Amber Heard, Sandra Bullock, and now Rachel Weisz are from a technical standpoint, the message some of them are sending out to the Internet and the world is, well, offensive. To be fair, Josh, your versions of Iron Maiden and Lady Hulk are far less troubling, so take heart in that. The problems really start with the most popular of your gender revisions: Alison Brie as Captain America, or as you named her, Miss America. Your reinterpretation of Thor is equally as frustrating. I'm really not trying to pick on you, Josh. Times and culture have changed, and they will continue to do so as history bends toward progress. Of course, your work isn't that over the top, Josh, and that shouldn't be ignored.
