“I don't think he is. She sort of sounds like someone who got frustrated with not being able to lose those last few pregnancy pounds and gave up trying. Then convinced herself that she likes her current body. But I'm willing to bet, if someone handed her a magic pill that said, take this and you can choose your ideal figure, I'm SURE she'd take it without hesitation and the figure she would choose would NOT be the "after" photo.”
“This is the attitude I'm starting to take on as well. I'm only about 10-15 (depending on the day) lbs heavier than my preferred pre-pregnancy weight (I have a four month old) of 125 and by most standards I'm still within the "average" range for my height and body type. Me and my belly lump have really bonded lately.”

“Actually if you look up this dudes group, OddFuture, you'll see that they have had several incidents in which they've been involved in alleged assaults and violent episodes. I guess he thinks that we all partake in these activities?”

“I guess you are just not lucky enough to be in the right elevators.
I haven't come across one of those either but, so many elevators, so little time. LOL

“Possibly, but there is nothing in the video or story to back that up... The assumption that the man being attacked must have been in the wrong kind of supports the original poster's comment about a double standard...”
Seriously, what is "intermittent fasting"? Eat at 8am and fast until noon? IF is just the latest fad craze. Look at human history. As a species, we rarely had access to food on a consistent basis. Cavemen found a patch of berries and binged. They then went without for 2-3 days. They killed a mammoth. They ate on this for a week and then went without for some time. Our bodies are good at storing fat for times of scarcity.
What do people do today? They rarely miss a meal. And, if they do, they double up on the next. If fasting was such an effective diet plan, Muslims would be the most fit people on the planet. One month per lunar year, they fast from sunup to sundown. Do they lose weight? No, in many cases, they put on more.
One reason for this is they fast all day and then binge after sunset. Without energy during the day, they slow down. Their metabolism drops. Then, they gorge themselves at night and go to sleep.
Nothing wrong with missing a meal on occasion. More of us should do this! Food is too plentiful today. We are programmed to eat whenever we can - history taught us food could be scare. No longer!”
“This study is very true in my family. I'm the middle child and I get by in life okay but I don't have the survival skills that my sister has when it comes to managing finances and thinking for the future. She also went to college while I went the vocational route. Now my baby brother, he's a 34 year old mess that mama still takes care of when he's in between wives.”

“Sorry. Studies that generalize like this are ridiculous. I'm the youngest of three, the only one with a Masters Degree, and have more career accomplishments than my sibs (although not more money. That's a function of marrying well, or not). Why does this study not look at the intelligence of the siblings and the relative "drive" to achievement? I also think that the time period in which you were born matters. My sisters were born during World War II. I'm a Boomer and came of age during the women's movement. there was more external pressure to show that women could accomplish more, while my sisters were able to be housewives without much thought.”
“It is frustrating when someone makes you question what you were taught to be fact as a young child. Questioning your dogma must be very difficult. You'd lose friends and family and you'd have to stop seeing the world through 'God Has A Plan' blinders.”

“No I question my dogma often. Im not like the rest. See what happens with a broad brush. That was my point. heh.”
