If all you can eat is monotonous tasteless goop, then people eat less?

The amount of mashed potatoes I could eat in one sitting, assuming they were made well, far outweighs anything else in volume. I'm talking lone, dozens of pounds

I heard the seeds of the wild potato work better

If you're able to lose weight by eating mashed potatoes you obviously aren't eating mashed potatoes that I made.

I'm guessing there's no butter in those mashed potatoes. In which case, no thank you.

Actually i knew someone eating only one small plain baked potato every day. She was already thin. She had to get treatment for the eating disorder. She was only 18 then.

I'll bet claire would endorse the all mayo-tater diet if she read TFA (I didn't).

So long as you include the calories from the butter in your overall calorie count, go for it. Try to limit yourself to 2,000 calories per day and you should slowly drop off the weight.

The reality is that most Americans (and probably everyone else in the world) are eating more than 3,000 oftentimes more than 4,000 calories per day. You literally have to be doing Michael Phelps or Eliud Kipchoge level of training to burn up all that excess calories. (I think Phelps eats a 10K calorie intake. Not sure what Kipchoge's is.)

....yes 2k is a magical static number.

Based on a 2k cal diet does not mean everyone burns 2k a day just by existing.

The human body, running on "idle" burns about 2K/day. If you burn more, then you'll lose more weight. If you burn less, you won't lose weight. Start from there and tinker a bit.

Can we just talk about the fact I'm still high as giraffe pussy 36 hours later?

Not sure why I'm quoting you, just happened to be the most recent post.

One time i got sick (pre-covid, by 10 years or so), and i lost smell and taste for a week.

I thought: perfect diet time. I can eat the most foul yet healthy food items, and not care. Plus if I can't taste tasty food, I won't want to eat them, and there's no point to eating more because I just won't want to. Sign me up for the brussels sprouts, sauerkraut, and water diet.

Sadly my senses returned and I'm still fat.

For most people, it's not so much WHAT you have in a meal, it's HOW MUCH. Plus of course the endless grazing and snacking in between meals that so many people do.

I lost 65 lbs myself simply through portion control and some minor changes to the type of chips I'll choose.  Those kind of adjustments are WAY easier to sustain long term than going on some extreme sauerkraut diet.

In the end, your body is physical incapable of breaking the laws of physics: if you eat fewer calories than you burn, it's impossible not to lose weight over time.  If you eat more calories than you burn, you'll gain weight.

But definitely got that one facing everyone for a reason

Energy and mass don't come from nothing.

Also the 2k calorie shiat is so farking wrong. farking kids these days...
