    Hello Utopian!

    21 Oct 20 21:15, you wrote to all:

    I weight between 235 and 240. My goal is 225 by Spring of next year.
    With covid allegedly trigger diabetes on people, I would rather be
    safe than sorry.

    I seem to have found the only diet that causes me to gain weight. I swear I am eating less than I normally do

    Part of a successful formula is to reduce calories. You can still
    gain fat and weight if eating too much of anything.

    True...but I want to build up insulation for the cold winter, when
    I am at home hibernating, due to being snowed or iced in. :P

    I decided that, if the Economic Apocalypse was coming, it would catch me with a big productive harvest, so I set a harvest
    twice the size I use to set and devoted a big part of the week to it. The mechanic plower failed on me so it was the horses and
    I doing the working.

    Farming is one thing I would really enjoy. I joke with the wife about digging up the front yard and planting a harvest. The grass is a pain in the ass to keep nice anyway, so I'd be fine digging it all up and planting veggies, etc.

    The same for folks not wanting to do such after all the holiday
    eating. But, with the uptick in COVID-19, they are discouraging
    holiday gatherings.

    For me, the Thanksgiving meal will consist of a microwave
    turkey dinner.

    A place were horses are not allowed is a sad place indeed. Horses are what makes life worth living. Them, and my The Worth of Immortality Series, and Power Metal, and a knife collection.

    Polar bears are super cute. At least those used to humans :-P When I was to Berlin, the polar bears in the zoo were friendly and cute.

    They had Przewalski's horses too. Their stallion filled a challenge against me because he caught me talking to the mares. He must have realized I was the alpha horse in the zoo.

    Seriously, I always recomend people who goes to Berlin to visit the zoo. Nobody pays me any attention ever, though.

    I have 6 Rottweilers home. I don't think they count as security, because most of the time they can be found sleeping around my feet.

    I keep telling my wife I would train it not to eat me. There are plenty of deer around here it can eat and the occational door/door salesperson.

    I have never been to Europe, but many of my family members have. My roots are from Italy (100% on my mom's side), but also German (Dad's side) and a small touch of America Indian (not enough to get me a casino).

    Now you both bring the subject up, I have just tried some diet chocolatines I carry in my store and they are surprisingly effective.

    They are designed so you have them instead of a regular meal. They fill you up but they have a small fraction of the callories a regular meal has. And they are tasty.

    So much win.

    But, I am not tired, and I don't feel hungry. That means that
    I am keeping blood sugar very steady. My normal times for
    morning meal is 8a. Lunch would be near 1-2p. Most of the time
    I can adhere to that. But this is where it can be as late as
    4p when I have been pre-occupied with something at the
    computer or dealing with customers. I do not (and can not)
    take the luxury of an hour break. I have to keep working.

    Well, this stuff I am talking about it a Spanish thing from a Spanish manufacturer :-) They are the Zero Remordimientos (Zero Regrets) substitutive bars.

    The corresponding link at my store (sorry, I don't serve International orders!) https://www.lagranparafarmacia.es/barritas_chocolate

    There are also substitutive shakes. The idea is the same: you have the shake and feel you are full so you don't eat any more :-)

    I also have an item in my store which is not a substitutive but accomplishes somethign similar. It is a soluble complex you take with a glass of bater before your meal (up to 30 minutes before). It makes you feel like a legion of Chaos Dwarves is camping in your stomach after you take a couple of bites of your meal, so you donç't want to eat any more. It is also very effective, but people gets used to it after two weeks and it just stops working.

    Not surprising. Most processed manunfatured food is a cheap

    The Zero Remordimientos link is correct. It makes more sense when you know Spanish :-)

    SLIM is purely chemical afaik. It inhibites something in your belly so you are nit hungry anymore. It also oxidates fats before they get absorved.

    It works great but the price tag looks daunting for a lot of people, so it is a bit of a hard sell. I keep telling customers that this thing is like a surgical stomach balloon for a tiny fraction of the price :-)

    It is not a bot. It is connected to my phone.

    A marketing friend of mine spent weeks tel├ling me I needed a chat system on my store or I would not sell crap. I think he wanted to sell me one so I set my own instead.

    I think I generate an extra sale per month with it. Most my customers are old horse wives that prefer to phone in if they want to talk with somebody, rather than use chat.

    How does that one work? Is it texting using your phone's data
    service? Or is it tied to a 3rd party app on your phone like
    WhatsApp?

    Has your friend bought anything from you?

    I get the odd person who tells me how I should run my business
    but they never actually buy anything.

    Young people aren't interested in vitamins and supplements.
    They think only old people need that stuff.

    SLIM is purely chemical afaik. It inhibites something in your belly so you are nit hungry anymore. It also oxidates fats before they get absorved.

    It works great but the price tag looks daunting for a lot of people, so it is a bit of a hard sell. I keep telling customers that this thing is like
    a surgical stomach balloon for a tiny fraction of the price :-)

    Plenty of water or a tea before a meal, and then foods with
    natural fibre content work well for me. ;) Much le$$ than
    SLIM, I would think.

    The idea here is that the nuts are a convenient food that does

    Sean,

    All I have to do is look at food and I can feel the weight gain.

    Then, if you saw what I was posting in The Digital D-Star Food Net
    group on Facebook, you'd really have a problem. <G>

    I posted a message to a co-moderator, asking him "are you drooling

    August,

    natural fibre content work well for me. ;) Much le$$ than
    SLIM, I would think.

    As much liquid as I drink (especially flavored water), and
    keeping check on the fiber, the only time I have to worry about
    "getting bound up" is if I have to have strong pain medicines.

    But many people think health comes from a pill or a jar.

    I've never been one for herbal medicines, and I think I only
    have 6 prescriptions I take regularly.

    Stick with it. The difference in energy will be noticeable
    soon.

    I also find that 1/2 avocado is a good snack to stave off the
    sense of hunger. I used to have it with a complicated process
    of coconut milk, cream, and 1/2 banana in a single-serve
    blender (MagicBullet). But now I just eat the banana and
    avocado with a bit of salt, separately. I got too lazy to
    bother cleaning that machine all the time.

    If you can cut the mustard and stir the mayonnaise (puns intended) in
    the restaurant business...especially in management...you have a future;
    as everyone has to eat.

    I joke among the ham radio operators that:

    1) Ham stands for H)ave A)nother M)eal
    2) You don't call us Late For Dinner
    3) If you eat ham, you're cannibalistic.

    I resemble all 3 of those. <G>
