RIP Kathy. Thanks to those of you who let me know that she died.

I tried to recover an old email account from several years ago, because Kathy had emailed me a story she wrote. We had done a CC writing contest ages ago in which Kathy, nomo and nomo's brother had contributed stories. I am sure others participated. I remember that I said I would review one of the story's and I remember reading Kathy's.

She had written about someone coming into a diner and ordering a piece of cherry pie. That cherry pie has lingered in my brain... its so odd how we remember the most random things about people. I wish I could have found the story, I would have liked to share it here.

Love and light, gator, and cherry pie. <3

 

I still have a children's story she wrote and sent me years ago. I don't want to put it on the forums, but I'll put it in my journal so people can see it if they choose.

Eating 1200 calories is far too little for a 14 year old girl. If you are eating a healthy amount, you will be much less enticed to eat 10,000 calories.

You are basically planning to enter into a starvation-binge cycle. If this actually sounds like a good plan to you, I strongly urge you to talk to a trusted adult, and see if you can meet with a professional with experience with eating disorders.

What do I say? I say that you are starving yourself by eating so little, and the effects of doing so can cause long-term detriment to your health.

I've given you the information, it's up to you to choose to act on it. I can't make you change your eating habits, I can only tell you that what you are doing is incredibly unhealthy.

2500 is a perfectly reasonable amount for an active 16-year old boy, it's even a bit low.

You won't find anyone on this site who will support you continuing to starve yourself, and continuing to ask the same question won't get you different answers.

You aren't eating enough to maintain. You aren't even eating enough for an adult male to lose weight, much less a teen who is active.

Stop restricting - it's doubtful even your "cheat" days are high enough in calories.  If the idea that you have to eat more is scary, perhaps you need to seek professional help from someone with experience in eating disorders.

If your weight keeps decreasing when you should be maintaining, why are you restricting how much you eat and having "cheat" days?

I agree with nebi - follow your nutritionists advice, don't eat less than half of what you were told to eat. 1200 is the bare minimum for anyone, and most people shouldn't eat even that little. If you are supposed to eat 2500, eat 2500.

You don't need to restrict carbs to lose weight, as long as you are getting enough protein and fat in your diet.

I suggest using the contact button at the bottom of the page, and let the admins know that this person is directly spamming users. They can remove the spammer from the site.

NEVER click on a link from someone you don't know. (Yeah, I know I included a link up above, but you can also find it at the bottom of every page).

In the tv movie, will Aidan Gillen play Rand Paul, and will that be confusing since he's already played Martin O'Malley?

I don't think it's that only a female candidate would get comments about her appearance... it's that the comments came from a fellow candidate.

Trump commented on Rand Paul's appearance during the debate.

Trump has always been an equal-opportunity asshat.

Her follow up the next day saying only a female candidate would get comments on her looks was right on spot too. 

Yes, but people have compared Bush's expressions to those of a monkey, made fun of Obama's ears, joked about Perry wearing glasses to look smarter, the Cruz/Munster memes... not to mention Trump's toupee.

I don't think it's that only a female candidate would get comments about her appearance... it's that the comments came from a fellow candidate.

But, My weight will increase You really do not know what it means to be a fat I am very afraid of these things

No, you don't know what it means to be fat. Your BMI is 18.7, which is .2 above the threshold for underweight.

Get professional help before this turns into an eating disorder (if it hasn't already).  Your nutritionist should be getting you to eat more, and if s/he isn't, you need to find someone who specializes in eating disorders. Many people end up with a team of professionals - including a therapist to deal with their distorted view of what is a healthy weight, and help them past  the struggle of eating a normal amount of food.

But the first step is realizing that there is a problem with what you are doing. Until you do that, nobody can help you.

Original Post by catwalker:

The part about vaccinations was rather interesting.

I missed it - who said what?

The question was aimed at Carson since he's a physician. His question was that Trump (and maybe someone else) had said that vaccines are linked to autism and since the science didn't support that link should Trump quit saying it. Carson was very clear that none of the science supported a link between vaccines and autism. Carson would not out and out say that Trump shouldn't say it was. He hedged in that direction though. Then Trump got to counter and said he'd seen "beautiful, wonderful (blah blah blah) children who had gotten vaccines and then all of a sudden were autistic and  he believed in vaccines and that parents should have the right to spread out vaccines.

Carson then did say we probably give too many vaccines too quickly and that some of the less life threatening disease vaccines should probably be spread out and smaller doses given.

Then Paul Rand chimed in since he's also a physician and also said that the science was very clear that vaccines do not cause autism and that vaccines are one of the greatest medical discoveries of all time. He did say that parents should have the right to refuse vaccines.

Thanks.

I'm glad at least some of them are stating outright that the science does not support any link between vaccines and autism... even if they can't bring themselves to go further than that.

I think they should've booted Christie to the kids table debate. He must have well-placed friends.

I wish they did a more random, half in one debate, half in the other, no ranking, then mix it up for the next debate.  Ranking and having lopsided debates makes no sense.

Actually, I wish they would just do a season of Survivor and figure it out that way.

Weight Loss Should there be a MINIMUM daily calorie amount? Sep 15 2015
18:56 (UTC)

Yes, there are minimums. From the Calorie Target Tool (on this site):

Need To Know How Many Calories Should You Intake?

Your daily calorie intake may vary depending on the amount of activity you do. If you're exercising more on one day, you may need to eat more to fuel that workout. As a rule of thumb, you never want to exceed a deficit (or eat less than) 1000 calories lower than the amount of calories you burn. The absolute minimum calorie intake should be 1200 for women and 1500 for men.

That's a very broad rule of thumb. Many of us have found that not eating less than your BMR (many calculators online, here is one) is better for weight loss than eating the bear minimum, and then adjust upwards if you are exercising enough that your deficit is too high. If you are over 200 lb, you can probably aim for a 750-1000 cal deficit, if you are less than 200lb, you might want to aim for a 500-cal deficit.
