Welsh coal miners with dirty hands.  Hold it by the corner and throw away the part that gets dirty.


Yes, Welsh coal miners are why we have Cornish pasties.

Makes sense.  When I cook scrambled eggs for breakfast, I crack the egg open and throw out the eggshell.  Then, when I'm done cooking, I eat the scrambled eggs and throw out the frying pan.  I tried throwing out the stove, too, but only threw out my back.

No one is "on keto".  That's crap.  You lose weight because you take in less fuel than you expend.  That's it.  No magic.  Keto as an excuse to throttle intake due to pain-in-the-ass does indeed work, but give yourself a break and have a cookie, god damnit!  Any crash diet is unhealthy, so slow the roll and be persistent.  Losing weight on any diet aside from what you eat normally but smaller portions will yo yo as soon as you reach goal.

Yeah, I'm losing weight myself.  It's annoying and some days I'm hungry, but I'm sticking to it and haven't gone up.

Oh, and exercise.

And fish and chips are eaten with the batter on, you SAVAGES!

As a carb junkie, I can't lose weight unless I'm on keto. Telling me to "have a cookie fer Christ's sake" is like telling an alcoholic to have a beer every now and again.

You think I'm bullshiating? I've literally had cake benders.

So not to set you off or anything, but what exactly is involved with cake benders? Is it just pounding one cake? Is it multiple cakes? Do you get a variety or do you stick with chocolate or something? What's the time frame here?

I imagine that if I went on a cake bender I would prefer a variety of cakes, like one of those cheesecake samplers or something with the different flavors for a likely total of no more than two full-size cakes, and it would last no more than 12 hours after which I would puke and/or die from sugar overload. But I'd also probably like coffee with it and the caffeine wouldn't help matters any.

/eat the batter
//and the crust on a pasty
///you can skip the mushy peas though. And the baked beans. Why are British veg usually mushy?

Let's be clear about one thing: cheesecake is a pie.


There's always that one person that want to start a fight.

I believe it's because they were originally lunch for coal miners and the thick crimped part gave them something to hold onto with their dirty dirty hands. So they didn't have to eat coal dust for lunch. Too bad they didn't think about breathing and died of the black lung anyways.

So... go eat some.

Your ineffective, fad diet won't become any more effective or any less of a fad just because you ordered a basket of fried fish and french fries.

As an added bonus, you could start tomorrow off by doing something that might actually be healthy and result in real, long-lasting weight management.
