    Love the onion, nice links.

    I also like rap news, this is just a random one:

    I agree real amy, I personally think that breastfeeding without adequate calories really took it out of me, and it wasn’t a conscious thing either. I just had a taste for simple healthy foods which were tasty and filling and I thought would be best but actually I didn’t pack in enough calories to sustain me and the baby, so I lost out. It might sound odd but I’ve had to work really hard to up my calories and have seen good health return. I have had to completely adjust my tastes though and now eat huge bowls of pasta and white rice with salt (!) all of which were practically taboo for me before.

    From what you’ve said I’m hoping nobody silly reads about this and thinks it’s a good idea- it really isn’t! There’s a lot of pressure on women to instantly lose baby weight but post partum is one of the most physically demanding times you can experience and time to go easy on yourself.

    8214, I agree with prancie, weight training will probably serve you better if your complaint is about flabby appearance, but I would do it in conjunction with monitoring your temps as you don’t want to lose any gains you have made. After an initial burst of energy eating for heat I did a bit of weight training only to see temps plummet. My temps are higher again now and I have the feeling that I’m ready to start again soon.

    good luck

    PS I haven’t heard any specific complaining here about diabetes, just found this post interesting. I’ve never been to America but my neighbour put on one and a half stone (21lbs) there on holiday- he said it’s because chips (fries to ye) are served free with almost everything. Here (UK) if you want chips on the side it’s about ?2 which is quite a few dollars. Of course, it’s his choice whether to eat them or not, but there is a general perception that Americans are generous with food portions whereas we are stingy.

    obviously someone on that blog page, in the comments (search the page for diabetes to find). I’ll paste it here but it will be completely out of context:

    Do you think that matt stone is right? Many people have diabetes now after following his advice, and he is a porker himself with health problems.

    I really feel sorry for the people who lost their health following matt’s advice, and he takes no responsibility for it, he never answers the people who are asking him why they ended up severely overweight and sick on his advice.

    You can think that the weight will mysteriously melt off after a year of refeeding, but for most people it doesn’t, it’s just a theory which matt has and it does not translate to reality.

    And most people in the US do overeat, you eat massive amounts of food there, you are welcome to come over to Europe and see how small the portions are here. Plus, there is no denying hard core data which shows how many more calories people are eating these days.

    I don’t think that Ann-Marie is doing permanent damage to herself because her body is eating up its fat stores. I know a ton of french women for example who occasionally diet like this, and they are healthy (and slim).”

    I think if you were to actually follow the advice in diet recovery 2 you would be avoiding “junk” food on the basis that most processed food contains PUFA. I suppose it depends on how you define junk. I view junk food as highly processed and full of fake ingredients like transfats and funny thickeners. Real food, however rich, is not junk food.
    For me, eating rich food brought my temperature up a lot, with a weight gain which is only to be expected, but purists would probably say having cream with stuff is “gorging”. Now my temperature is up I am stil drinking far less water and eating more carbs than before, but I don’t need rich food very often.

    What about the comment calling Matt Stone a fatty and saying everyone who follows his advice ends up diabetic?

    Guys, don’t forget that you could always exercise. If you have the energy for it, and it doesn’t see your temps plummet try some strength training. Building muscle will increase the calories you burn just liming.

    I really had the urge about 6 weeks ago to do some strength training, really enjoyed a couple of sessions but saw my temps plummet so I stopped. I’m up for trying it again now but will be monitoring the effect. The one thing I take away from the 180 experience is that certain “healthy” activities actually lower metabolism- like cardio exercise. So if you want to lose weight don’t kill your metabolism.

    The other thing (did I say one?) I would take from the 180 site is that if you aren’t enjoying/ benefitting from some diet/ lifestyle plan, change it. Don’t just follow it blindly if it doesn’t work for you!
