I usually do my exercising around 10-11pm (after digesting dinner) and I find that really helps the problem of exercising making you hungrier, I usually go to bed before I feel like eating anything else.
Of course, like everything, I'm about 99.9% sure there's a study out there saying exercising only a couple hours before bed is bad for you too. The human body is a piece of junk.

Actually the human body is very resilient and can adapt to most things, including junk food diets (though exercise helps protect against the ill effects of things like that). I used to exercise at night at it seemed that insomnia was the main side effect until my body adapted to it. Rather than calling the human body junk, I would venture that most "scientific research" is crap.

The public loves hearing how they don't have to exercise or calories in/out doesn't work and it doesn't matter if the study was designed by a chimp.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: kryptin420: these studies never actually tell you the real chance of this happening doing these activities like the cookie dough and dog kissing thing. All they say is that it can happen.

With the dog/cat sleeping with you and kissing giving you a disease I bet is around the same chances as a human partner sleeping with and kissing you. We eat horrible sugary and carb filled diets that promote all sorts of nasty bacteria that you won't find in a dog mouth unless your feeding it the same junk and there are plenty of people who do not wash often enough. Did you know tooth decay and cavities are a somewhat recent problem to humans that started with farming and the making of breads?

You sound like the type that would let animals lovingly lick your mouth and open sores.


and you sound like the type that would let a human lovingly lick your mouth and open sores. What's the difference in terms of potential disease transmission?

btw human contact is worse as humans carry viri that can infect other humans. Dogs don't as we're different species and only bacterial and fungal diseases can be transferred.

I take the George Carlin philosophy on these sorts of things:

"Where did this sudden fear of germs come from in this country? Have you noticed this? The media constantly running stories about all the latest infections? Salmonella, E-coli, hanta virus, bird flu, and Americans will panic easily so everybody's running around scrubbing this and spraying that and overcooking their food and repeatedly washing their hands, trying to avoid all contact with germs. It's ridiculous and it goes to ridiculous lengths.

In prisons, before they give you lethal injection, they swab your arm with ALCOHOL. Wouldn't want some guy to go to hell AND be sick. Fear of germs, why these f__in' pu55ie5. You can't even get a decent hamburger anymore. They cook the shizma out of everything now 'cause everyone's afraid of FOOD POISONING! Hey, wheres you sense of adventure? Take a f__in' chance will you? Hey you know how many people die of food poisoning in this country? Nine thousand, that's all, it's a minor risk.

Take a f__in' chance bunch of goddamn pu55ie5. Besides, what d'ya think you have an immune system for? It's for killing germs! But it needs practice, it needs germs to practice on. So if you kill all the germs around you, and live a completely sterile life, then when germs do come along, you're not gonna be prepared. And never mind ordinary germs, what are you gonna do when some super virus comes along that turns your vital organs into liquid shizma?! I'll tell you what your gonna do ... you're gonna get sick. You're gonna die and you're gonna deserve it because you're f__ing weak and you got a f__in' weak immune system!

Let me tell you a true story about immunization, ok? When I was a little boy in New York city in the nineteen-forties, we swam in the Hudson river. And it was filled with raw sewage! OK? We swam in raw sewage, you know, to cool off. And at that time the big fear was polio. Thousands of kids died from polio every year. But you know something? In my neighborhood no one ever got polio. No one! EVER! You know why? Cause WE SWAM IN RAW SEWAGE! It strengthened our immune system, the polio never had a prayer. We were tempered in raw shizma!

So personally I never take any precautions against germs. I don't shy away from people who sneeze and cough. I don't wipe off the telephone, I don't cover the toilet seat, and if I drop food on the floor I pick it up and eat it! Even if I'm at side walk cafe! IN CALCUTTA! THE POOR SECTION! ON NEW YEARS MORNING DURING A SOCCER RIOT! And you know something? In spite of all the so called "risky behavior ".... I never get infections. I don't get em. I don't get colds, I don't get flu, I don't get headaches, I don't get upset stomach, And you know why? Cause I got a good strong immune system! And it gets a lot of practice!

My immune system is equipped with the biological equivalent of fully automatic military assault rifles, with night vision and laser scopes. And we have recently acquired phosphorous grenades, cluster bombs and anti-personnel fragmentation mines.

So, when my white blood cells are on patrol reconnoitering my blood stream seeking out strangers and other undesirables, and if they see any, ANY, suspicious looking germs of any kind, THEY DON'T. F__. AROUND. They whip out the weapons, they wax the motherf__er and deposit the unlucky fellow directly into my colon! Into my colon. There's no nonsense! There's no miranda warning, there's none of that three strikes and your out BS. First defense, BAM! Into the colon you go!"

/RIP, you magnificent bastard

ph0rk: Apropose of nothing, I'm 5'10" and around 155 lbs. I like not having to re-spring japanese motorcycles for a fat american ass I don't have, but then again any modern office chair is about 8" too wide and clothes are hard to find (even though I should be a medium and don't have short legs or a long torso or any crap like that - I'm just a rare shape now in fat people's america).


In the history of medium-sized clothing, 5'10", 155-lb was never comfortably medium. (Even in European sizes -- for something like lacoste, 5'10" is a large) That's basically a medium cut in an large length.

(When 155 lb was medium, average height was about 5'7". When 5'10" was medium, average weight was about 180 lb)

shower_in_my_socks: Also, I now fully subscribe to the "exercise won't help you lose weight" idea. When I'm exercising, I'm hungrier, I eat more, and I eat less healthy foods because "hey, I'm burning it off!" which offsets the exercising. If you want to lose weight, stop exercising and focus on eating a low-calorie diet until you get down to the weight you want, THEN start exercising so you're all healthy and stuff.


When I started exercising seriously (and I mean SERIOUSLY) I gained weight for about 6 months. True or not, I saw that as a sign I was losing fat but gaining muscle mass, which is - der - heavier. After that, I did start losing some major weight. Of course me and my workout partner also pledged each other to not drink any carbonation or alcohol for a year. Now THAT was highly effective for me in losing weight.

If you're heavier than you want to be, try it! No carbonation (not even "carbonated water") and no alcohol. It may help.

It's finally been confirmed: Sugary drinks make you fat.

I drink soda daily, probably about a liter or so. 6'2", 180lbs, 38 inch waist. Am I fat?

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: several pet owners contracted disease when their mouth or an open sore was lovingly licked by their animals.

What in the ever loving fark?!?! Is this the sort of shiat pet owners do? WTF is wrong with you people?


Do you kiss your kids?

/besides, your kids will kill you before any pet will. I have 3 four-legged kids and I kiss them each and every day. The next study will wax poetic on how much people who own "pets" live healthier lives (walks, stress relief including kisses which send dopamine to the reticular activating system). I can only shudder to imagine human kids...you get home from work and they're screeching in your face. Now THAT'S relaxing!

Plus your kid's mouth has more germs than my kids'.

The only way carbonated water would make you gain weight is that it stretches out the stomach and then you burp it up leaving and empty space. So uh... eat slower.

I fell down about 20 feet of granite scree a few weeks ago. Made hamburger out of my lower leg. My dog wouldn't stop licking the wound (I think dogs are hardwired to lick bloody wounds). Somehow I survived and the scar is minimal.

Bullseyed: Spad31: I love my dog kisses. I have the coolest, smartest most awesomest giant yellow Lab ever. He's way more fun than most people I know and he has a herd of pink stuffed-animal sheep that he carries around. He's the smilingist dog ever and he's my goofy boy. MURPHY! Or, Mr. Murffles if you're not into the whole brevity thing. Plus, he sleeps in my spot on the bed and keeps it warm for me if I'm not around.

I'm sure he loves going to town on his balls, butthole and dick right before licking your face, too.


You have issues. Address them.

You're two inches shorter than me, 20 lbs heavier, and your waist is about 7 inches bigger around than mine, so... possibly.

Twenty minutes on a step machine is worth about 50 calories (+ or -), or about 1/2 slice of bread. Trying to lose weight just thru exercise is impossible for the average person. Best exercise for weight loss is to push away from the table, for most.

You've been here since 2003 and you don't know about clintoned in the boobies?

First time I saw it.

Further proof of Pfom!!'s Law of the Internets:
"No matter how old something is, or how widely known, somebody somewhere is seeing it today for the very first time."

Well it's not in the list of filters, and I haven't seen it in a thread before this one.


It was a farkmeme for awhile.

Anyone who would equate kissing another person with interspecies mouth and wound licking is wired incorrectly. There's nothing I can say that would help you see how disgusting that is.

By exposing myself to such things while my immune system is at its healthiest, I ensure that I won't be killed through an infection gained by dog saliva like the one or two other guys who might die of it this year. The same concept applies to salmonella and cookie dough, though I'll recognize I'm playing with different odds there.
 
2012-10-05 10:09:48 PM  

ronaprhys: I note that the called out prepackaged cookie dough, not the doughy goodness that my wife makes when she bakes chocolate chip cookies* using her Kitchenaid.

*These are the only acceptable home-made cookies. If you like something else, you are some kind of devil-worshiping, baby-killing POS. You probably root for some team in that state up north and have an extra or missing chromosome.


I like them without the chocolate chips. Does that make me a lesser-hellspawn admiring, teenager-beating piece of dirt? 

/srsly, if you haven't tried it, they're awesome
