So a glass of milk and a piece of toast? That's what my mom used to give us when we couldn't sleep.

What a useful article.

I guess I shouldn't complain.  They could have made up a lot of bullshiat about what to eat when.

Eating leads to pooping.

I am firmly convinced my internal clock is stuck on a deserted Pacific island somewhere.  I guess it's eating well?

So the primary form of the accretion of metabolic sustenance, dramatically effects the cyclical release of metabolic energy even over times the body shuts down all activities pertaining to the growth of the organism?

Well you might as well say its dangerous to not shower when you wake up because the heat modifies the compartmentalization of a bodies distributed blood pressures that are focused and extenuated during sleep, because not doing so its similar to walking around with a body full of surprise snake cans that will hamstring even the best thought out courses of activity.

Oh right, social structures and deity fads. Um, its not the clock that kills you, its the sudden dropouts of the bottom.

But it's even worse. We know that when it comes to insulin mice are nothing like humans. For example, mice store about 50% of excess fructose as liver fat whereas humans store about 2%. In short, always be skeptical when people try to generalize from mice or rats to humans. People like to study rice and rats because it is considered ethical to do so--it doesn't mean it produces useful information.

I`ve decided to start my `game of thrones diet` where you have to stop treating your body like a stark and saying to it "winter is coming" through the foods you eat and the activity level you set.

Think about it, we evolved in a world with seasons. In the season before, you have to prepare your body for the season coming. You have to be fat for winter or you die. You have to be lean for spring/summer or you don`t reproduce and so forth.

Your body just wants you to reproduce and not die.

In autumn, there is plenty of food that you don`t have to work hard for. Animals have fat on them from eating all summer and all the grains and fruits have produced, well grain and fruit. if you eat fat, meat and grains and fruit (basically normal food with extra fat) while doing nothing you are preparing your body for winter. It will put on fat and stop you wanting to move about. People who live like this end up fat. You are naturally put off wanting to reproduce with these people as that would kill your offspring because they would be born at the wrong time of year.

In winter, you eat pretty much the same except the grains get used up and you are just eating meats and fats. Sometimes you get winter vegetables but not at the same time as the meat or fat. Your body thinks it is winter so it uses up your fat reserve and eats some muscle (to reduce calories needed per day). this is Atkins. People who live like this end up thin and unhealthy and look like they live off rats. While thin you don`t want to fark them as they smell off/rotten.

In spring there are lots of new animals and some green shoots to eat, lean young meat and greens tells your body that it should become attractive to the opposite sex to try to reproduce. Some animals still have some winter fat left so fat in your diet won`t make you put on weight and may give you some needed nutrients. It takes more energy to get these foods at this time so when you eat them and do exercise you are telling your body to be `courtship ready` You will gain muscle and lose fat. People who live like this end up thin and healthy and look like someone you`d like to fark. A tan from early spring sun helps. This is why, in the northern hemisphere at least, we prefer fairly thin people at a particular fitness level level with a bit of a tan.

In summer you eat grown animals and greens mainly. Your body is on maintenance waiting for the time to get ready for winter. You have to do less exercise which primes your body to put on weight if you move to autumn. People who live like this may not be fat now but they have an easier time getting fat than `spring` people and they look like parents. Sort of want.

It`s pretty simple. Most of the time if you exercise you are saying to your body "IT`S SPRING!" so your body tries to cope by getting in courtship readiness. Fad diets like atkins are trying to get your body to lose weight by making it think that if it doesn`t it will die because it is winter. You don`t end up sexy that way, you just end up thin and smelly. If you want to be sexy you have to make your body think you need it to be sexy and that is spring...


YMMV

I watch a decent amount of BBC America. The Brits seem to be holding their own in the obesity department.

That was an awful lot of reading when all I wanted to hear was "this diet is 100% Emilia Clarke's naked tits."

Ah yes, the pernicious bullshiat of the health religion. "Eateth thou beans and sweetmeats in a pattern most perplexing and this will supercharge your metabolism and shred your abs."

My body clock seems almost non-existent. If I didn't have to keep a schedule I'd happily do a 20 hours awake, 9-10 hours sleeping routine.

Fano: gfid: What a useful article.

 "Eateth thou beans and sweetmeats in a pattern most perplexing and this will supercharge your metabolism and shred your abs."


ah but the patterns are shortcuts to digestion, just as the ground is tilled to provide ease of use to potential flora in a garden or farm, diluting food with more food just as evenly broken down will aid in the simpler binary chemistry that allows the metabolic uptake of matter as a temporary form of energy in a hydrocarbon-based super-solution. while its not as complicated as botany because botany is watching paint dry on a floating jigsaw puzzle, flooding the wrong combustion cycle will throw the crankshaft into a pattern that will lock out the absorption of certain materials, and since the human digestive tract isn't a giant glass bottle boiler with condenser tubes, the more evenly spread along the total surface the material is, the easier time the system will have in depleting materials as they become exposed to their respective conveyor molecules. Basically its turning your respective storage organs into trinary chemists waiting their turn to access the air from the only furnace in a smallish underwater apartment to finish filling out the proper air pressure to appease the stability of the materials that weren't recently blown out of an airlock, or flash converted into a neutral solution.

You mean kids drinking gallons of energy drinks are going to have an impact?

NO

I bet you didn`t eat all the time you were reading it...

Ok, just for you.

ahem.

The game of thrones diet.

This diet is 100% Emilia Clarke's naked tits. What you do is stare at the tits, for hours, instead of eating. She plays tennis with you, swims on her back and generally runs about a bit.

So if you're a fatty, your body always thinks it's lunchtime?
