Sorry to get sidetracked. :P


You're not the only moderator to make irrelevant and uninformed posts in diet threads.


Get back to us when you have a faint hint of an idea about an inkling as to why...

Yes.... then go and read some of the studies referenced and associated studies, and while it is alarmist, it's certainly thought provoking.

Fat blind: Have we forgotten what a healthy weight looks like?

Nine out of 10 people struggled to identify an obese body and seven out of 10 of obese people didn’t know they were obese

I would counter that with 9 out of 10 competitive cyclists know exactly what slightly over weight looks like, let alone obese :mrgreen:

There are probably a lot of other sports where the participants are equally self aware, well, maybe not cricket or golf... :lol:

Each year I go to Thailand, I bring my roadie and train with the locals. The guys on the bling bikes are typically working western style jobs and speak good english. They are almost always the fattest in the bunch despite riding the lightest bikes. Nutrition always comes up as they see my organic athlete kit. They weirdly always ask me if I eat a high protein diet to stay as ripped as I am. I point at the as lean rider on the 500$ roadie and say 'what will he eat tonight? what will he eat for breakfast? what about lunch? what will he snack on? proteins, fats OR carbohydrate rich foods like rice, sugar and fruits?. The rich guy on the bike will always say 'you know what, you are right! he will eat these poor peoples food because he no afford steak dinner and yoghurt like me!'

They are always amazed at how strong I ride as a plant muncher. They say 'we only see vegetarian monk and muay thai fighter but not vegetarian cyclist!'. Its quite funny. Those Thai cyclists are mega friendly and accommodating. If they say meet at 3pm for a ride, it means they will start riding by 3:45 lol!
Vegan since 2001.

OTOH, the vego cyclists I met in India years ago, generally died before 50. Why? cos they made a living carting people around as rikshaw wallahs

Oh yeah! I like to snack on sugar too but I find it a bit gritty in my teeth. Do you have any tips on how to make the sugar feel less gritty in my mouth?
