Did you read my post? Base it on what works better for you. There is no "best".

I think it's better to base it on how you feel. If you are more hungry on workout days, you should plan on eating more on those days. If you feel hungrier the day after a workout (this was true of me when I worked out in the evenings), then plan on eating more the following day.

If you can learn to eat appropriately to your hunger, you might even be able to move away from calorie counting.

Is this the same guy that you've written about in the past (in which case, which one? Because there were several), or have you managed to find yet another "I love him, but he's so dependent on me, even though we've never met, I'm not sure I want to be with him" guy?

Yah - blame everyone else for not doing it and breaking herd. :-/

More likely, claim it as evidence that herd immunity doesn't exist.

Thank you for the replies. Does when and what is eaten then have an effect and what/how much is burned? :)

For issues like this, I generally think of it this way:

If you are an olympic athlete, a professional model (fitness model, clothing model, whatever).... yeah, maybe it's going to matter, and you are going to want to perfect your nutrition/workout timing.

For the rest of us, for whom striving for absolute perfection isn't a full-time job, no, it's not going to matter, because the other things that take up our life (the fact that we spend 8hr/day at a desk, plus a commute, the fact that we have pizza on friday nights, the fact that we don't forgo every birthday cake or thanksgiving dinner) are going to make a much bigger difference for how our bodies handle the food and exercise we give them.

We really can.  Smallpox is the best example.  It's gone, with the single exception of some lab samples.  We were getting closer to eradicating diptheria, pertussis, measles, and polio.

Fixed that :)

From your previous persona, who had similar stats (you are clever, I'll give you that - you changed them enough to make people doubt that it was you, especially when you claimed otherwise, and you deleted enough of the old threads to make it harder to compare), same writing style, same obsession with the 80-10-10 baloney... this thread confirmed what we've all suspected since you created this account.

You'll deny it, I know, and sure, maybe I'm wrong. Only you'll know for sure. It doesn't really matter if you are the same person or not - what you are doing is just as unhealthy as it was for her.

About eradicating diseases: Can we really? I mean, even the plague isn't truly dead, although t is very difficult to get. If wer really lose that many people to measles (I honestly had no idea) obviously we should get vaccinated but I still think we need to be on our toes even for seemingly antique diseases.

Smallpox is considered eradicated. That doesn't me we aren't "on our toes" but it doesn't require vaccination for the general public. They do have vaccines, for scientists who work on the disease, and after 9/11, the CDC increased their stock pile in case of a terrorist attack that somehow caused the release of the virus.

freelee the banana girl said if you combine a high carb vegan diet with some nuts, that it'll cause diabetes or make you gain weight since she says the fat you eat is the fat you wear?

She sounds like someone whose mental capacities have been significantly hindered.

She also sounds like someone a 14-year old (or are you 15 now?) with a history of eating disorders shouldn't listen to.

Getting your baby/toddler's blood drawn does suck.

But having your kid in remission from cancer, only to contract a preventable disease sucks more.

I would take steps (get records from my doctor, because we don't receive paperwork with vaccination history, and nobody will accept a self-maintained record) to avoid doing a blood draw for my child, but if it was needed to prove that his vaccination had "taken" to protect another child, I'd do it.

Not particularly opposed to spreading the schedule, either. But by the time the child is old enough to enter school, he should be all caught up, and many school boards make current shot records a condition of enrollment.

I think that the delayed schedule is not going to provide any benefit, but I also think that it's risk is minimal. If it allows parents to feel like they are being "cautious" or "doing something" but still results in vaccinated kids, fine. Choosing to spread out the vaccinations is a placebo, essentially.

My dream is to have a telemarketer call at the same time as a Seventh Day Adventist rings the doorbell.  I imagine saying "oh, it's for you" and giving the Adventists the phone.

I've heard of parents of toddlers handing the phone to the kid and letting him go to town.

My son chatters a ton on his dish-rag phone or his remote-control phone, but he clams up on a real phone, so I'm not sure if it would work with him. Maybe when he's older.

Yes, recovery will make your hair and you look better. You haven't ruined your hair forever.

However, you have to actually recover. It's going to take time and hard work. I hope you have access to a medical professional with experience in eating disorders and can get the help that you need.

Well, I'm not a statistician or actuary, but I would guess that for most individuals in most parts of our country, the downside risk of not getting a shot for something like smallpox or mumps (i.e., catching and dying of smallpox or mumps) is comparably negligible.

Smallpox vaccine isn't available for the public. Routine vaccination ended in 1972, when it was eradicated.

It'd be nice if we could someday say that about more diseases, but the anti-vaxxers have screwed the pooch on that one.

A lot of doctor's offices call with blocked numbers.

I also use *67 if I have to call someone from outside my office while I'm teleworking. I don't want an external person knowing my phone number.

We use the frozen parsley mostly for garlic bread - butter, garlic, and chopped parsley melted/sauteed, and then drizzled over the bread, and bake in tin foil.

Editing works best on the full webpage. I don't know if you can edit if using the app.

I think I've heard that hair tends to be ~3 months (or so) behind your nutrition status - so if you started eating healthy 3 months ago, the new hair that's just starting to grow in will reflect that, but you'll still be dealing with the older, less nourished hair.

Parsley can either be dehyrdated or frozen in cubes with water. It stands up OK to dehydrating.

We just chop it up and throw it in a plastic baggie into the freezer.
