The supplement I was thinking of was one that's supposedly proven by the FDA to prevent cravings. It's been on US commercials for awhile now.

Are polyunsaturated and monounsaturated good for you? I heard of those by reading the nutrition label of a box of reduced fat cheese-its bought before attempting to lose weight

Fruit isn't the same as sweet junk foods like ice cream. It will never be. It's as simple as I end up craving the bad foods. An apple immediately following a run, however, is like heaven.

What I want is something to tell my brain when I've had enough and block cravings for more. Which is what this pill claims to do.

Exercise I surprisingly have down. I tend to be able to incorporate into my day a half hour of cardio and/or weight lifting a day pretty easily.

It's stress, or cravings and nighttime hunger, which eventually make me stop because I just simply seem to give up- my cravings win, I lose. Or my stress levels shoot through the roof when my fiance left for basic training for example, and I was struggling to keep an A average and I start telling myself I deserve a "break" from dieting.

It's a cycle I really want to break. I've tried diet and exercise, but it never really seems to stick. I lose a few pounds, sometimes five, sometimes thirty. Then it all comes back six months later.

Part of my refound interest this time in losing weight is my own concerns about my health, and that my fiance told me he's worrying that I am becoming too heavy to be healthy. Maybe his telling me that, along with his support and ability to say "no" when I start heading towards junk food, will give me the push I need to finally change my life.

But for now, I have very low confidence that I can stick with it when there's ice cream and sugary juices easily available everywhere.

I sometimes think these foods shouldn't come in massive amounts for very, very cheap. But that's just blaming someone else for my own shortcomings.

How did you stay away from these foods?

Aside from the fact that a lot drugs, pharmaceutical or not, are unhealthy, It's always better to be able to restrain out of self-control than relying upon external means, which in the end only fight the symptoms and not the root problem.
I think the only real and meaningful benefit of people who manage to lose a lot of weight or gain a lot of muscle is not the change on the outside but the change on the inside.
Because in order to achieve it you need to develop willpower, discipline, self-control, and endurance. Qualities that will make you more resistant to the turmoils of life, becoming a more balanced person, leading to a happier life.

To break any habit is hard. It takes time and persistant effort to gradually sublimate any cravings. The most important thing is consistency, to quote my Greek buddy Aristotle: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."

The key is to not be persuaded by the excuses your mind comes up or to justify it by things that are out of your control.
Once you've deceided what the right thing for you is, the only thing to do is to follow it and stick with it.

For myself, I didn't need to stay away from those foods, it was natural that I did and for a couple of reasons:
- My scenario was different, for one I've always been a naturally slim person and didn't have that much affinity with food.
- When I started to train and diet my goal was bulking up, and not losing weight. So although only eating healthy food I ate every 2 to 3 hours with a total of probably somewhere in between 3500 and 4000 calories. So I never felt like eating anything else because I was either still full from the last meal or had a meal coming up.
- I was serious about my training and diet, I looked upon food only as part of my training. In this sense it was just strictly business.

But what is worth noticing is that in the beginning I really had to force myself to eat that much and I absolutely didn't like the taste of anything, but in the long run I not only became quite accustomed to it but actually started to like the taste of it too.
Also just to show how the body will adapt to the habits, when I ate that much and that often I would get hungry very fast and intense even to the extent where in not eating anything for 3 or 4 hours the hunger would actually become a bit painful.
Now, a year later, I don't train anymore so I don't diet anymore neither and I couldn't care less about food. I can hardly be bothered to cook anymore, my diet mainly consists out of breakfast cereal. Usually I only eat two times a day, sometimes even just once, only breakfast. Now, even after not eating anything for 10 hours I'm not that hungry.

Back to your questions, yes, unsaturated fats are the healthy fats.
Now I understand that you don't enjoy eating an apple as much as you do like ice cream, but physically the simple carbs in apples will reduce the body's craving for sweet food for a while.

No, because what you are saying is misleading and even incorrect.

The fuel supply in muscles is glycogen, which are basically connected glucose molecules, and glucose is is broken down carbohydrates, not fats.
Although fats can be converted to glucose through the process known as gluconeogenesis where the fat breaks down into glycerol and through a series of chemical reactions, glycerol can be converted into glucose molecules.
This is a labarious process, unlikely to happen and to an insignificant extent.

Muscles don't "eat" fat.

Protein doesn't lose fat, in fact they are calories too.

And once again, it isn't easier for a fat guy to gain muscles than it is for a skinny guy.

So no, not what you said.

sick, what pick ups are those? I got the james heitfield signature for more than half off because of a flaw, the white snakebyte. It came with active emg 81/85
#482 - auryn (05/28/2015) [-]
Seymour Duncans. If I'm not mistaken they came with a SH-2 in the neck and a TB-14 in the bridge.
Not that I especially wanted those pickups but they come standard with either those or active EMG's, not that the EMG's aren't good, on the contrary, but I'll likely be swapping pickups sooner or later and after all the reading and listening to comparisons I was more inclined to the passive pickups due to them being a little more dynamic in nature.

I'm undeceided yet which one to pick yet but the Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Sentient combo seems like a good contender.
When I still wanted the EMG's, I would have gone for an 81/85 or an 81/60 combo, they seem like a good choice.

Half off, for a quality guitar? That's a pretty good damn deal, assuming it's only a cosmetic flaw and not one that affects the playability or tone.

Meat is also made of everything a body needs, being a body. As far as thia guy is able to educatedly guess (and im no nutritionist) is that back in those days meat was more advantangeous since it might have been denser in not only calories but nutrition as well, compared to the plants of old at least. meat was also able to be transported great distances and last with the advent of jerky.

Youve been nothing but polite so I apologize. also forgive any typos, im on mobile. From what ive gathered from my biology classes back when I was in college it went like this and ill give you the short of it. Im also a dropout so take it for what you will (wanted to be a park rangers but colorblond need not apply) Humans started evolving once we began eating meat simply because it was so calorie dense compared to a vegetarian diet on top of being (mostly) available throughout the year. There was a time when our ancestors ate only vegetarian like gorillas but we became scavengers, eating like hyenas and that is what gave us the calories to start developing bigger brains. Little work for damn good pay. Eventually we discovered rocks can be sharp and we started chasing animals, which meant more meat. We started getting smarter and used traps or terrain to kill huge herbivores. the cycle continues so on and so on. Now ill admit we are omnivores for a reason. Plants and shit are important(ask pirates about scurvy). In the end like all things we need a balance.

Well, that is only confirming my earlier point of the plausible cause being being spare energy. Just a question of calories, not an inherent quality of meat itself, and not something that couldn't have been done without eating meat.
But I'm actually more interested into what convinced you that meat made us smarter, what was the most compelling argument that made you think it was likely that meat was the major instigator of the development of our intellect.
Surely you must have had your reasons to say that.

(Also, regarding the link, I don't see how an individual 1.5 million year old skull with porotic hyperostosis would be directly suggestive that eating meat made us smarter, even if it was out of malnourishment. Not even taking into account that there may be other causes for porotic hyperostosis including infections and parasites.)

Im also a dropout so take it for what you will (wanted to be a park rangers but colorblond need not apply) Humans started evolving once we began eating meat simply because it was so calorie dense compared to a vegetarian diet on top of being (mostly) available throughout the year. There was a time when our ancestors ate only vegetarian like gorillas but we became scavengers, eating like hyenas and that is what gave us the calories to start developing bigger brains. Little work for damn good pay. Eventually we discovered rocks can be sharp and we started chasing animals, which meant more meat. We started getting smarter and used traps or terrain to kill huge herbivores. the cycle continues so on and so on. Now ill admit we are omnivores for a reason. Plants and shit are important(ask pirates about scurvy). In the end like all things we need a balance.

Heres a link from a 5 second google search in my attempt to fill any gaps

Well, that is only confirming my earlier point of the plausible cause being being spare energy. Just a question of calories, not an inherent quality of meat itself, and not something that couldn't have been done without eating meat.
But I'm actually more interested into what convinced you that meat made us smarter, what was the most compelling argument that made you think it was likely that meat was the major instigator of the development of our intellect.
Surely you must have had your reasons to say that.

(Also, regarding the link, I don't see how an individual 1.5 million year old skull with porotic hyperostosis would be directly suggestive that eating meat made us smarter, even if it was out of malnourishment. Not even taking into account that there may be other causes for porotic hyperostosis including infections and parasites.)

But that isn't saying anything other than that early humans ate meat, something I'm not opposing.

Like i mentioned. 5 second google search. ilearned all that shit in a community college. Remember that modern veggies are heavily modified because of heroes like norman baurlog too. Meat is also made of everything a body needs, being a body. As far as thia guy is able to educatedly guess (and im no nutritionist) is that back in those days meat was more advantangeous since it might have been denser in not only calories but nutrition as well, compared to the plants of old at least. meat was also able to be transported great distances and last with the advent of jerky. Ive always been told its the calories though since our brains take so much juice but im babbling at this point

Sure there were certain practical advantagous that eating meat had in that time, but nothing that indicates that eating meat is the primary and direct cause of the development of our intellect.

The fact that you think this would even annoy me the slightest cheers me up.

I wish I could thumb that comment up.
User avatar #46 to #42 - konradkurze (04/24/2014) [-]
so when someone else posts something educational and not funny to you, you bitch, when i do it, you want to thumb me up

logic is a white woman and youre the ****** raping her
#49 to #46 - auryn (04/25/2014) [-]
I didn't bitch.

I tried to explain the fallacy in your assumptions.

On the other hand, you started by rebuking the people who had a different opinion.
Haha, that hypocrisy thing again, huh.
User avatar #29 - drewsky (01/18/2013) [-]
You're literally on a track to get yourself banned from too many thumbs down because you feel the need to post your opinion. You know that, right?
#30 to #29 - auryn (01/18/2013) [-]
I need over 7500 more red thumbs to get close to that, so I've got a while.

Although I once managed to get over 9000 red thumbs within 3 weeks on my previous account.
Definitely worth the ********** .
#36 to #30 - konradkurze (04/24/2014) [-]
so you admit to what i said

you troll for fun
#38 to #36 - auryn (04/24/2014) [-]
I hardly do, check my previous comments.

And even if I did, it wouln't make a difference, my intentions doesn't take away from my arguments, even if I were trolling it doesn't mean I'm not right, and most certainly doesn't make any of what you said any less ridiculous. lol.

ahem....9000 red thumbs in 3 weeks = Troll

I didn't bitch at you for having a different opinion.

I tried to explain some things to you that you had, and still have, difficulty understanding.
Things like that people might have thumbed the content down for other reasons.
User avatar #53 to #47 - konradkurze (04/25/2014) [-]
well you obviously dont know funnyjunkers

if you ever paid attention to them. they largely bitch at anything that contradicts mainstream ideals of political corectness

in the case of this pic, providing the non-PC truth about race/species, the FJ kids would bitch about it being 'racist'

then again you seem to devote your time to ************ others instead of paying attention to them

Read back all the comments of our conversation and you'll find that 90% of the ************ is done by you. I've said a thing or two but you resort to ungrounded insults pretty much every comment.

Hypocrisy much?

I picked Auryn because I liked the symbol of the talisman and what it represents, both depicting duality and infinity.
User avatar #55 to #15 - Falkor (05/21/2014) [-]
you didn't pick it for the neverending story? : (
#56 to #55 - auryn (05/21/2014) [-]
Ofcourse I did!

That's why I chose it in the first place.

So you're gonna keep trolling?
Also, why did you choose this name, and not another Trek name?
Did you not want to be known as Trek anymore?
#8 to #7 - auryn (04/02/2012) [-]
I figured I'll just keep a low profile this time and keep the trolling to a minimum.
