Are You Hungry?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
When is the last time that you were truly hungry?

Not just feeling hungry because of the clock, but REALLY hungry, such that your stomach is growling and stuff. I'd hazard a guess and say that most Americans don't really know what hunger is anymore.

Interesting, but...

Arnold Schwarzenegger is 6'2" and weighs 257 lbs. Is he obese? Yes! Is he fat? No! Is he more than ideal target weight? Yes. Is ideal target weight the best way to tell if you are in shape? NO!!!

Side story:

The most disgusting MRI's I ever had the displeasure to see were of the thighs of some young women. Each was well within her ideal target weight, in fact, each was slightly underweight. Each enrolled in a medical study because they had aches and pains, which did not follow any specific diagnosis pattern.

The study included cross sectional MRI's of various body parts. The thigh cross-sections showed that the women had huge fat deposits in their thighs, and elsewhere, and almost no muscle mass anywhere, literally, 3" to 4" of fat surrounding a very small muscle layer.

These women were clearly "obese" even though they did not fit the definition. The muscle to fat ratio was astonishing (sorry, I can't recall the actual numbers).

Now, body fat percentage is a good number to know and understand. It also means something.

Some have it that the longevity "secret " of the "Happy Hunza" made famous by Dr. Bronners peperment oil soap, is that the seasonal nature of their habitat, forces a period of fasting each spring. Before the crops mature.

Or is it the Dr. Bronners and coffee ground enemas?

Me neither CalG, but my wife has a friend who's mother swears by it. She's going to live forever, at least according to her. If you want I will inquire about the concoction for you. Other wise I will leave it for some trolling maggot to pick up and share around the maggot site. They always fall for this stuff.

Naw, Forget it.

I never read the whole label on the soap anyway!

If I tried half the things I have heard about, I would be just as confused as I am now!

Eat correctly, exercise and we still die.

If you're born to drown, have no fear of fire.

If the whiskey don't kill me, I'll live till I die!

The one I like is: there are only two ways out of a marriage. I'm choosing divorce.

Think about it.

Or the other side.

Q: Why do (pick your subject group) married men die young?

A: They want to.

True Story:

I just went skiing with a cop buddy and he told me about this guy driving up I-5 with wife. Wife is chewing on him pretty good (apparently chews on him all the time). Guy gets fed up with it and pulls car over on or near the Boone Bridge in Wilsonville, Oregon; opens the hood and mucks about. Just when a big rig passes, he jumps into traffic and is killed by the rig. Wife says, "he made a motion and then jumped."

There are only two ways out of a marriage. One is obviously quicker than the other.
