You must understand deeply that in fact you are not depressed about concussions specifically. You are just depressed due to misbalance of some hormones. Your brain rationalises this feeling by making you think you are depressed about concussions as it's the most prominent reason it can come up with....

Interesting. I've thought that it's my autism that has made me good at drawing, because I see things as they really look like, and my drawings are not compromised by a predetermined idea of what I think it should look like - which is what often ruins many people's drawings, that they think too much...

If I had to choose minimal essential set, I would say you need two: Burpees. It covers full body. And I would do it HIIT way, just like auntblabby described: max intensity 30-40 seconds and 3-4 minutes resting. 3-4 rounds total. Full-body resistance training exercise like deadlifts once or twice a w...

It does matter. You said that since my TDEE can't be known I can't know that restricting will work because I could could eat 1,500 calories and burn 1,300 calories. I'm telling you that I've solved that problem by widening the margin of error. Exactly. You have this problem and have to solve it whi...

So are you trying to lose weight without restriction or without deficit? Does ketosis eliminate the need for a deficit or does it eliminate the need for restriction only? I'm not trying to lose weight. But anyway, as I said restriction is not always a required condition to lose weight. Yes I know. ...

You're the one who brought up the need for laboratory precision. My example was in response to you saying I'd need to breathe into a tube all day to know my precise TDEE and I said I don't need to know my precise TDEE to come up with an estimate that's good enough for me to lose weight. I lost weig...

Calm down mate. I even included the post I was arguing against in quotes to make it easy for you, yet you still can't follow the argument so I'll provide you with a summary. You said that restriction and deficit aren't the same thing and I argued that restriction leads to deficit unless your estima...

Oh, so that's why restriction never worked for me. Oh wait, it did. I lose weight eating 1,600 calories per day. Since I can know my precice TDEE I suppose it's possible that my TDEE is less than 1,600, which would lead to weight gain but unless I think it would be unlikely my TDEE would be that lo...

Yes the baseline is your TDEE. I don't know what sort of baseline you were thinking of. If you like you can imagine some arbitrary baseline so you can accuse me of having used it. You can't possibly know your de facto TDEE for any particular day unless you spent this day breathing into a tube for i...

Yes I did. I said it's better to lose weight from eating less calories instead of from keto. I didn't say you have to be on a carb based diet while eating less calories. I also said that the weight loss one experiences is from eating less calories, even if you're on a low carb diet. Less calories i...

I have changed my diet a lot recently. I've been eating super healthy, no excessive dietary cholesterol. Would you mind to elaborate, what super healthy means. Limiting your dietary cholesterol is not super healthy. Read my message. I guess your doc gave you the same standard outdated harmful advis...

Are they consuming the exact amount of calories as westerners? Or are they consuming less calories? You could be right that they eat less carbs then us because they're eating less of everything. I can't see any evidence that they're diet has less carbs in proportion to the total size of their diet....

Like 20 years ago I believed I was the only person among all people I know who listened to Sopor Aeternus. Until I casually mentioned I have a disk after I girl mentioned it. She almost fell off her chair, she mentioned it as an example of music I could not possibly know because I was super dorky an...

Better fat with clean pipes than thin with them clogged; that’s for sure. Try to lose weight, but if you want to gorge on something fatty, make sure it’s vegetable fat. This advise is one of those plain harmful. Vegetable fat considered healthy bcos it doesn't contain cholesterol. But "bad&quo...

I'm doing keto for several years. I didn't intend to lose weight, but lost about 10 kg. I decided to go keto for mental clarity and health. It really helped with both. I forgot about some chronic health issues and having more mental clarity and energy totally helps to deal with challenging situation...

Cholesterol is not really a "bad" guy. It is an indicator of bad things going on. Cholesterol is like road workers, after roads were damaged by some natural disaster, there will be a lot of road workers fixing roads, but they are not the reason of damage. To lower your cholesterol levels y...
