a much better way to diet is to count calories and then eat about 500 less per day than it'd take to maintain your bodyweight. 3500 kcal = 1 pound of fat, so in theory you should lose a pound of fat every week doing that (in practice, more of that pound is lost in lean body mass unless you exercise - but also if you exercise your calorie requirements go up, so you can both eat more and get better results).

I've been slowly getting huge in the belly. I need to drop 20 pounds and then maybe a little more. This holiday of candy and leftovers, plus slackin with my GF has really done me wrong.

I know, that's what I'm sayin'.

One of my things when I'm doing Japanese lunchbox art is putting a couple of drops of blue food coloring in the rice-cooker water. It results in really vivid blue rice which is great for backgrounds. I can even screw with it and get a mottled background that looks a little like a cloudy sky.

And every time people get wind of it, I start getting emails about how gross blue rice is and how they'd never eat it and how toxic they're sure it must be blahblahblah.

People have no idea how much food coloring they take in every day. It's in vitamins, for crying out loud.

tadao - i'd advise you to not fad/crash diet if you don't need to lose 30+ pounds. You can easily drop 1-2 pounds a week through calorie counting and exercise (though I guess your options with exercise would be limited).

the crash diet i went on was pretty similar to south beach, but set up from more of a realistic/study-based perspective than a scientific perspective, plus you got 2 free meals a week of wtfever you wanted. all you need to ezmode it is a foreman grill. also it doesn't have a retarded maintenance phase like south beach does (UHHH JUST DO THE DIET, BUT LAZIER, FOR ETERNITY). if you're interested gimme a pm and i'll send it to you.

I remember one study found that it took a gallon of yellow 5 to cause erectile problems. In a rat.

Soon after, people thought that drinking mountain dew would cause your junk to shrivel.

i've been thinking of applying to be a personal trainer at a gym after i get down to my target weight.

people wouldn't like me, though, because i'd just walk them straight to the free weights room, and they'd be all FORD, WHAT ABOUT MY MACHINES

Kitsa Jan 14th, 2010 08:09 PM

Well, I tried to be fair and there is a brand of 100% natural food coloring that I endorse when people ask. And when I had my gallery show last summer, I asked the company for handouts, which they sent. Every time someone came over and tried to pick a fight with me over food coloring (and there were a few), I'd hand them the flyer and tell them about it.

The problem is, the stuff is made with natural spices and vegetable juices and it's always going to taste a little like the original ingredient. So you could end up with vaguely beet-flavored cake icing or something like that and it could be weird. I try to use the natural stuff whenever I can, but sometimes the artificial colorings are unavoidable.

Chojin Jan 14th, 2010 08:10 PM

just use the artificial stuff and pretend you use the natural stuff when people ask, imo

Tadao Jan 14th, 2010 08:10 PM

I'm pretty limited to speed walking and light weights. My GF is used to this diet and I like it cause I'm all I DON'T KNOW WHAT I CAN AND CAN'T EAT, so she cooks for me.

Chojin Jan 14th, 2010 08:15 PM

well like i said, south beach and lyle's crash diet are very similar, since both are PSMF (protein-sparing modified fasts) that also cut out fat. the big difference is that with lyle's you get free meals (or carb-loading meals, if you're not obese) and you're recommended certain vitamins. the best diet is the one you can stick to, however, so if you're comfortable with south beach, by all means.

I recommend 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 and 6-8g of fish oil every day for everybody, but when you're on a diet like yours tadao, you should also look into magnesium citrate (not oxide) and potassium - this will help you avoid going into a coma and schiavo'ing the night away (for people who don't have bone problems like yours, taking a calcium supplement is also important to preserve bone density when crash dieting). Get everything in gelcaps, not tablets. Fish oil is pretty hot shit for anyone and does a ton of stuff, from mood improvement to fat burning.

Kitsa Jan 14th, 2010 08:15 PM

The natural stuff is pretty limited in scope...the red is kind of magenta-y, the yellow is kind of mustard-y, and the blue is sort of purple-y. Makes mixing a little more of a pain if you're going for a wide variety of colors. You can do it, it's just harder and it relies more on a pure-white substance to be colored (rice, yogurt, sour cream, cream cheese, etc).

The artificial stuff can make it easy...I can even do stuff in neon colors if I want.

By 'girlfriend', I meant 'she-male Lebanese prostitute', silly.
The market's bigger than you think.

Sam, is your furry suit finished?
