  1. Cubster's Eating Records

    it's better to satisfy the cravings when it's manageable. If you had one toast (with cheese or not) nothing much is going to change. How about that salt?
  2. Cubster's Eating Records

    Think of it as a nutritional supplement you need to take.
  3. Cubster's Eating Records

    eat normal amount of salt. too little salt is bad for you and may cause obesity
  4. Cubster's Eating Records

    How is your salt intake? Are you trying to reduce it?
  5. Cubster's Eating Records

    no, both high in carbs, you'd want to avoid. Once you have lost lot of weight, and your blood sugar is normal, you can consider eating normal while being very careful.
  6. Cubster's Eating Records

    You have less glucose in your blood now than before. Blood glucose levels are high in prediabetics. Now it's probably coming to normal levels. Excess glucose means it needs to be reduced by insulin or peeing out. When you walk do you stroll or walk? Try to walk briskly like your cat is eating your cheese burgers and you gotta stop them.

    For weight loss and resetting metabolism you need 16. Do it with water once a week. Think of it as a diet

    maybe fat migrated in search of better pastures. What were you eating when you were not updating? I think you should start what is known as intermittent fasting. Basically 16 hour ramadan fasting with water.
  9. Random Islamic Questions

    there are valid arguments for female imams, although in very minority. Did you read that book (misquoting Muhammed (SAW)), it's in there. But in the end of the day, the issue is that of a jurisprudence. These rules are derived methodically in a scholarly manner. Unfortunately, layman inject their own one liners. What makes sense for a morroccan man may seem silly to you. that's not heresy. Heresy would be to deny some well known thing in Islam. So it would be always prudent to hold your personal judgement before learning more about the subject.
  10. Fat vs carb

    That's what I am saying. Anyway, more and more studies are coming to light showing eating meat/fat doesn't cause heart diseases or is not unhealthy. Actually studies always were consistent, but food industry were undermining the results that didn't agree with their marketing strategies of selling "healthy" food. unfortunately, American heart association and friends ignore every thing else in food but fat. omega 3 is the good one. mainstream view on omega 6 is neutral. New evidences points towards too much omega 6 (the ratio of omega6 to omega3) causes inflammatory problems including plaque build-up.
  11. Fat vs carb

    Good for you. I'd avoid factory produced beef though (corn fed, antibiotic injected, tortured, depressed poor poor animals). I'd also balance my protein intake
  12. Fat vs carb

    you can always show a counter example to anything. If there is actually a connection between red-meat and mortality rate, that should be visible in all studies. If it is only visible in some studies, you have to question methods and assumptions of the study. From the link you share Although they say they compensated for effects, that remains a big hole in the method. Not to mention, many assumptions needs to be made about effects of lifestyle on health. The very effect they are trying to measure. At very best, they have established a correlation between red meat and mortality rate. Which is not same as causation. A subtle but important distinction. Red meat does have high omega 6 content, which is inflammatory, which leads to heart diseases. So in the end of the day, they could have only measured the effects of imbalance of omega 3 to omega 6 content in diet. In my opinion no concrete conclusion can be drawn from this study, other than: don't be overweight, lethargic, smoking, alcohol guzzling red-meat overconsuming people. How would you do that though? If you want to loose weight cutting fat or meat is not the answer.

    how are you recovering? How's work?
