fireclown: Since this is looking like a weight loss/why you're fat thread, I've got a question.  I wake up and eat bread at night, and it's keeping me from dropping the last 15 pounds.  I'm close to awake, but I can't quite seem to not eat.  It isn't like crazy ambien eating, usually two slices of white bread. I've had sleep evaluations, no dice.  I've tried drugs up to ambien, no dice.  Tried changing sleep hours, giving up caffine, literally gone to talk to the Buddhists on the mountaintop for meditation tips, no dice.

Any advice?  It's making me crazy.


Piss on the bread before you go to sleep.  That way if you really want it you'd better be desperate.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: fat boy: When I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a couple of years ago, they had me in the hospital for 2 weeks. Weight was 454 when I was admitted was down to 337 when released. Took me a longtime to lose anymore but am slowly losing again. Hope to be under 300 by labor day. It isn't allways overeating. Sleep apnea will really fark with you.

You lost 117 lbs in two weeks?


Yea, but the alimony payments are killing me.

/thank you. I'm here all week.

Corn_Fed: Simplest way to lose weight AND keep it off (which is much harder than losing it):

1) Keep eating ALL the same foods you've been eating. Swearing off entire food types (bread, pasta, burgers, whatever) won't work in the long-term. You'll eventually just end up craving them...and destroying your diet.

2) Order (or prepare) exactly what you would normally do. BUT...cut each item exactly in half, and just eat the half. (Ex. steak with mashed potatoes, and glass of wine. Eat half the steak, half the potatoes, half the glass of wine). Save the remaining half for next meal.

3) After completing the meal, drink a LARGE glass of water. Drink all of it. This will wash away all residual flavors in your mouth (which cause craving for snacks), and clarify how "full" you truly feel. This step is IMPORTANT!!


Help me! Four nights ago, I grilled a steak and a baked potato. I saved half of it for the next night. The third night, I'm down to 1/4 of a steak and 1/4 of a baked potato. I'm so hungry and it's hard to cut small pieces of steak and potato into halves again. I'M SO HUNGRY!!!

gweilo8888: The Crepes of Wrath: That's your problem right there.  Starving yourself isn't a good way to lose weight.

Yep. Legions of Ethiopian starvation victims and POW camp victims prove that stopping eating makes you gain weight.


Not comparable because the starvation victims cheat: after being hungry for two days, there still is no food in sight.

Do what I did. Put a combination lock on the fridge/pantry that flashes a single digit n at you. Then you have to punch in the first 20 numbers of the Fibonacci sequence mod n. Arduino - is there anything that it can't do?

Magorn: Bravo Two: Magorn: I can sympathize, when I droped from 370 to 285 in about 3 1/2 months, *I* felt svelte and skinny as hell, and of course those closest to me DID comment extensively about it, but  of course 6'2 and 285 still ain't skiiny.  It's why when i recently droped another 40 I was taken aback by how many people commented on it, and not just friends, but people in line at the bus, check-out clerks, even the guy running the omelelte station at a place I go to brunch about once every six months or so.   To me 40lbs was chump change so barely worth noticing, but the difference between 240 and 280 is, to the outside world, apparently much more noticeable than 370-280...

What's the biggest thing you did to drop that extra 40? I work out now, barely eat a meal a day, and still can't get below 290 at 6'3".

Same thing I did the first time: Make sure my proten intake is over 100 gm/day and Drop my carb intake to under 60gm a day not oncluding dietary fiber.   It works like a charm every time for me .  Exercise helps a little, but at least for my metabolism (and given your measurements I'd say we have the same one)  dropping the carbs, leads to lower insulin production, and when your body's glucagon level is higher than its insulin level, it starts making series 2 eicosaniods (micro-hormones) one of which is a signals for the body to burn stored fat.  Once that turns on viola, weight starts dropping almost like magic  (and bcause it is all fat, as opposed to fat, bone and muscle whichall get eaten when you take the restricted calories approach-the weight loss is more dramatically noticeable body-shape wise) .   If you've tried that and it doesn't work  like it used to,  Try adding Chromium Picolinate and Vitamin D supplements to your diet.  Chromium re-sensitizes the body's insulin recpetors meaning you need to make less, and Vitamin d (which according to my doc most adults who work indoors are deficient in) plays a critical role in how effectively your body can use ...


Please say that in English.

Stop buying so much bread. Or put it in the freezer, that way you'd have to put it in the toaster or microwave before you eat it.

Yes...it is. When I was obese no one noticed my weight loss until I got down into the middle of the 'overweight' range. From there until I dropped into the normal range I got a constant stream of compliments. Watching my obese SiL after her surgery was like this. The first 100 lbs was barely noticeable. The next 50 more so, and the final 50 was amazing.

I think that makes sense. To non-fatties, a fat person is a fat person. The degree of fatness doesn't change the fact that the person is a fatty. People will say "good for you!" and mean it but they are thinking "he/she is still fat". When you go from a fatty to something that appears to a non-fatty suddenly you are being mentally slotted into a different category . Whole different kettle of fish.

hmmm maybe after the surgery he is 300ibs but before that I would say he is closer to 400 ibs.
Either way if you're lik 6' 6 300 is NOT that grossly obese..  how tall is Christie anyway? 6' 2" or something? he looks like a big guy. I remember him towering over Obama in one of the pictures.


Nah, obama was on his knees.

HotWingConspiracy: I won't crap on him for working on it.

I do find surgery to be an extreme option though, I doubt he really tried very hard to lose it by traditional means.

Well if we didn't point and laugh, he'd be as fat and unhealthy as he ever was, so we are actually helping him, and in turn, his future political career.

Which I'm sure you don't have a problem with, being the biggest GOP apologist on Fark.
