Foods How do I get 2300 calories in a healthy way?!! Jan 05 2015

I don't, but then again, I'm not trying to gain weight, so I have no reason to eat every hour.

You can add some peanut butter to your oatmeal, some avocado and cheese to your scrambled eggs, add a protein shake as a snack and you can add peanut butter to that as well. You could also add a protein to dinner, tofu, meat or fish depending on what you eat.

Cook with healthy oils.

If I were you I'd send this email.

Dear .....,

It appears that you have taken interest in my personal assignments. If they were team assignment, I would be delighted. However, these are my personal assignments.  I appreciate your apparent willingness to help me but, for my own professional growth, I prefer to handle my own responsibilities without help. I've discussed my assignments with my manager and we are confident that I am qualified and can carry them out on my own.

If you still have concerns or are interested in my assignments, please contact my manager.

 

never put anything in writing.

Some things should be in writing, like if you're negotiating (or modifying) a contract or are filing a formal complaint. I wouldn't, however, send an e-mail to a nosy coworker telling them to lay off. They might forward it and start drama. They might even edit it to make me look bad.

You're at a pretty healthy weight. If you want a better physique, I would focus on working hard and eating enough to sustain muscle growth.

What do you mean by net 2000 calories? I doubt you eat that much more than you burn. I would aim for a small surplus, like 250 calories per week and stay active.

I usually have coworkers that are too busy with their own work to care about mine or are so lazy that they do nothing until it's time to go home.

How is the person getting your work to double check it? Is he taking it off your desk, snooping through your boss's inbox?

I would just not hand him what I'm working on. It's none of his business unless your manager says it's his business, and when he gives you unwanted suggestions just say thanks Morty and ignore the advice.

I assume he'll move onto someone else when he's bored.

Can someone tell me how much calories I've burned doing 15x5 reps with 20kg weight in my hands??? Thank youuu

No since we don't know how large you are. Even if we did know that, we'd just put the information into an online estimator, which you could do yourself. If you want something more individualistic, you could get something like a fitbit or a basis watch.

WHile I agree that money drives almost evertthing in media and politics, you're still dodging the point - so I guess my note about the needed conversation not happening is still accurate. Whatever Sharpton's motives are, the police being used as a revenue stream through invented stops and broken windows policies was a known problem even before Ferguson and Eric Garner. And while it does disportionately affect minority neighborhoods, nobody is immune to it - all you have to do is go 3 miles over the speed limit in a cash strapped municipality, and you have a $150 ticket (my personal experience). And if the person stopped simply can't pay the fine, the result is an arrest warrant and jail time. There are real reasons why people are angry, and you can't just write it off to a "media agenda."

The really brilliant one is suspending driver's licenses for not paying fines.  Because that just makes all the sense in the world.

It makes perfect sense. People who need to drive to work will keep driving without a valid license, and if/when they get into a car accident, insurance won't cover it, driving those who could not afford to pay the fines even more in debt or causing their arrest for driving without a license. You act like this is a problem.

What about when they cause an accident involving another vehicle?  The insurance for the other car may not cover the accident either.  So, yes, it is a problem.   An uninsured, unlicensed woman very nearly killed a friend of mine in a head on collision.  BTW every single responsible person needs to find out if they need to have coverage on their policies for uninsured motorists.  

There is a word. It is called sarcasm

Weight Loss BMI is rubbish Jan 01 2015

BMI doesn't take into account body composition, but most people with an obese BMI are actually obese. Maybe 2% of them are bodybuilders or particularly muscular athletes.

The more pertinent concern is that 1/3 people with a healthy BMI are clinically obese because they have too little muscle for their frame

I've never heard anyone gush about how talented or amazing she is, so I cannot tell you why they do it.

Even though some people don't like her music, most people (who listen to western popular music) would say that it doesn't suck. I think there's a distinction between whether or not something is good and whether or not you like it.

I hate blue cheese, but I'm sure some dishes made with it are really good. I just won't eat any of them because I hate blue cheese. 

Conversely, there are some things that I like, but I wouldn't classify them as good either, like pixie sticks. There pretty disgusting actually, but I like them.

Young Calorie Counters Weight loss at boarding school? Dec 26 2014

When I went to boarding school, they had cooktops in the cafeteria, like a stir fry bar as an option.

You could reasonably figure out what you're eating if you use the salad bar and other food items that you have to put together yourself. It's pretty much impossible to tell what all is in what they cooked for you.

If your school has a nutritionist, (ours had one for sports), you can try him or her for some suggestions.

I would start with a basic lifting program like Starting Strength. It doesn't take very long, and then do whatever cardio you want either after the lift or on a non lifting day. 

If you're just working out to get in shape, then a basic lifting and cardio routine is fine. If you're working out to become a better swimmer, then you should tailor both your lifting and cardio routines on the needs of swimmers, and I would ask your coach about that.

I only drink coffee if it has alcohol in it. Tea is good, but I find that the "tea stores" are way overpriced.

My point is that prosecutors don't provide "all of the evidence" for everyone whose not law enforcement. They provide only the evidence that is favorable to getting an indictment if they want an indictment which most of the time they do. When it comes to law enforcement, they often don't want an indictment and that doesn't mean that they couldn't get a conviction or that the case had no merit. 

?

The transcripts of the Eric Garner GJ proceedings have not been released, so based on MB case, the prosecutor was wrong for presenting all the facts?  I  just don't see it.  I think he was wrong for even bringing the case to the GJ, but that is just me. 

All this was more or less discussed in other earlier threads.

If you don't understand the crux of what I'm saying, I'm sorry, but you must be brain damaged, and there's nothing I can say other than suggest you see a neurologist.

Original Post by catwalker:

Since a grand jury almost never indicts the police for anything, I don't know why you keep giving a grand jury non-indictment so much weight.

They are supposed to represent the public.  If their decisions carry no weight than what would work better?  Would it be fair to just let someone like Al Sharpton decide? 

Grand juries do what the prosecutor wants them to do. Their decision means nothing if the prosecutor goes out of his way to make sure an indictment doesn't happen because he relies on the police to make his other cases. 

 

Really,  is that a fact?  I think it is just another version of the old hammie sammie myth.   When they  actually present exculpatory evidence/testimony, they are accused of the same thing.  Old story.   So, the are damned if they do and damned if they don't.   

 

 

  

Defendants get indicted 99% of the time. They do what prosecutors want them to do and most of the time, the prosecutor actually wants an indictment. Defendants have no right to have exculpatory evidence in front of the grand jury and it usually isn't presented for them because that's counterproductive to the prosecutor's intent. Normally, defendants don't get to testify that they were acting in self defense and normally prosecutors don't misquote the law to the jury in favor of the defendant.

It's one thing to argue that exculpatory evidence should be introduced in all indictments. It's another thing to treat officers facing a grand jury different from everyone else facing a grand jury.

Because prosecutors have an ethical obligation, not to bring cases before a Trial Jury that they know have no merit, eg one that they will surely lose.   They are not presenting exculpatory evidence per se, they are presenting all evidence/testimony, and allowing the Grand Jury to decide if a criminal charge is warranted.

And I totally agree it is unusual, but it is unusual for a prosecutor to be forced or compelled by public opinion and media outrage to do anything, rather than just make up their own minds.   MO

I thought "totality of the circumstances" came from Illinois v. Gates which was dealing with probable cause to search people not probable cause for the grand jury to grant an indictment. I don't know if SC jurisprudence treats all "probable cause" equally; in fact, I would be surprised if it did.

I think overall calorie count will matter more than your macro break down. If you're lifting, then I would aim for 1g/lb of lean body mass, but other than that, I don't have any particular suggestions other than figure out what healthy foods you like eating and eat them. I like vegetables, so I eat a lot of them, but if I didn't like them, forcing myself to eat them for my "diet" just to quit after three weeks would be useless.

People shouldn't be arrested unless it's necessary. If you can give them a summons and they're likely to appear, then why should they be dragged down to jail, unless they're actually a danger to someone.
