"With fewer carbs (just 20 grams per serve) than the average serve of pasta or rice, a single potato in the jacket is another nutrient-rich, extremely satiating food - just watch the added butter!"

I find this claim dubious.  While not a big follower of tennis but a big follower of food, I'd have to conclude they're all about the same.

I'd like to see the comparative serving sizes they're using.

Well, the potato goes about how you would expect, but when you hit the ball of rice it's about like firing a shotgun.  Its also a real pain in the ass to clean up on the grass court, just ask my butler.

Quick. I give it a few months at most before it goes back to killing you again.

Screw it. They left out pancakes, syrup, and chocolate milk.  bacon, eggs, potatoes, and yogurt just won't fill up my svelt figure

I say that knowing I've lost 40 pounds somehow and have never actually eaten all that for breakfast.

I've been eating like that for years. Hell, there's 9% milkfat yogurt in my fridge right now.

And then you pour what's left into the bacon drippings container.  Use it in place of cooking oil or butter in many dishes to make them succulent.

My grandmother made biscuits with bacon grease that were to die for.

There's so much conflicting information out there, with the list of foods we should "avoid" seemingly growing longer each day.

Idiots seemingly see all kinds of things.  It's called confirmation bias.

It's also almost grilling season, and my bison burgers need that fat.

My favorite part was where the article stated that "one to two pieces of bacon once a week was fine". Who eats 1-2 pieces of bacon?

Eat what you want for breakfast and adjust the rest of your meals accordingly for the amount of activity you will be doing.

There, now go live happy.  Worrying about food will kill you faster than the food.  Also have more sex you prude.

People still think fat is unhealthy? Pork fat is the best. Way too much salt in bacon but still... This breakfast is way healthier than a bowl of sugar cereal.

You can still indulge in a bacon and egg roll now and then - just make sure you trim the fat off and keep it to once a week.

And when you're done trimming off that bacon fat, it's healthiest to put it in a zip-lock bag and please forward it to skrame, po box...

"A small serving (one to two pieces) once a week is no issue especially if lean varieties are chosen. More important is how it is cooked and if excess fat is disposed of," Burrell advises.


Who the hell eats 'one to two pieces' of bacon a week? I'll knock back a whole side of bacon in a sitting. Although my beer and bacon diet means I will never see my abs again.

I lost 30 lbs last year. I wouldn't recommend method to anyone because it was a severe calorie restricted diet. Now I'm on maintenance, but I eat whatever the fark I want. It's not particularly balanced or healthy, although I do avoid fast food when possible (if hanging out with my niece or nephew, I cave), but you could eat butter exclusively and as long as it's within your basal metabolism, you'll stay thin. I don't know why I do this though because I couldn't care less about myself. I'm a self-loathing, pitiful loser, so I don't care if I'm healthy, yet I'm nearly ocd about keeping a diary of what I eat so I stay within my calorie limit. The point is... Eat what you want and you can stay not fat

If you do this you should be fine:

Avoid processed foods
Avoid sugar, corn syrup and artificial sweetners
Avoid soy (just avoid anything that has anything to do with Monsanto, just because you will fell better about yourself)
Avoid fast food

Exercise

Soy can't exactly be avoided. Especially when you're allergic to milk, almond milk is disgusting, and health nuts annoy you with all kinds of suggestions when all you want is something to put on your cereal.

Meh. All things in moderation. You can eat whatever you want (in moderation) if you exercise (in moderation, or more). I dislike hard-and-fast rules and your rules suck balls. No chocolate or candy, ever? Screw that. Life is too short.

One minor addendum to the article... add some raw honey to the hot chocolate while boiling it for some sweetness... it's fantastic, and because honey is much sweeter than sugar, you need less.

ristst: And then you pour what's left into the bacon drippings container.  Use it in place of cooking oil or butter in many dishes to make them succulent.

Oh hell yes, this!  We have a mason jar by the stove filled with bacon fat (good idea when pouring from the pan is to strain it through cheesecloth and you end up with purer lard), and we use it all the time.  Eggs aside, Brussel sprouts, halved and cooked in bacon grease, are heavenly.

Cut the fat off of bacon?  Who the hell does that?   I'd eat bacon and eggs for breakfast every day if I wasn't too lazy to make them.  Most days is just cereal and coffee.

I have problems with milk and it turns out that almond milk isn't half bad, at least to me. It basically has no taste at all. The color and thickness is a bit off-putting but it's pretty decent for you. I dunno, maybe give it another shot? Personally I like the "vanilla" flavors, and IMHO do not get unsweetened. "Silk" brand is the best but I'll buy the others when they're on sale.

I like almond milk, to each their own - I just don't like everything I have read about soy personally

Jument: Meh. All things in moderation. You can eat whatever you want (in moderation) if you exercise (in moderation, or more). I dislike hard-and-fast rules and your rules suck balls. No chocolate or candy, ever? Screw that. Life is too short.


I should have added "in moderation" - it is best to avoid those things, but there is a reality factor.

I personally eat the shiat out of chocolate and on occasion eat Chipotle. But do you really need artificial sweeteners and highly processed foods? No one - I don't care who you are and what moderation you believe in - should ever drink pop (or soda) - there is not one good thing about it. To me it is worse than smoking.

Ok, I'm with you. Except for that last sentence, where you started to sound a little crazy again.
