Peple blame sugar when it's other carbs that turn into the bulk of glucose in your body.

Almost half the calories in a Big Mac are bun. Non-sugar Carbs, via calories, are why we are fat.Chips, bread with everything, buns. Seriously, watch what's on your plate as you eat for several days.

There was a study 40 years ago where they fed. prisoners two diets of a whipped concoction, with varying amounts of fat and sugar. The fatter you were, the MORE you preferred the. high fat one, and the thinner people preferred the sweeter.

The idea fat people are hooked on sweets is BS. They are hooked on higher-calorie, denser-calorie fatty foods.

I just read an asinine study the other day that incorrectly associated sweeter foods with. higher calorie intake because they were more calorie dense, the authors surmised.

There was a study linking insulin resistance to belly fat 2 years ago, via stress. NPR had a show on it.

antibiotics mess with gut flora
gut flora feeds back to brain via a bizarre nerve
this feedback induces stress
stress induces fat deposition inside the abdomen
fat in the abdomen releases chemicals which cause insulin resistance

So...this is one more observation

My gf got it in the 1950s before NAS.

I got it after going off NAS 20 years ago and switching back to normal pop for 2 years.

These new people have some 'splaining to do.

Here's my solution: AT&T can have their fast lanes and extort Netflix, but the. top of their monthly bill has to print "Of your $10/month Netflix bill, we are extorting from them $2 (or whatever) a month or we will slow them down. Also, we told you a particular speed for you in your contract with us but we are miserable, fraudulent liars."

Eh, Quake II single player had jumped the shark anyway, abandoning the fantasy monster model for a dreary grey-and-brownmetal sci-fi affair. Screw up the cool grappling hook so it's a mealey-mouthed humming POS. Get rid of rocket jumping because it's "wrong", then half-assedly add it back under protest with a hack rather than it falling out naturally from the physics. Turn the grenade launcher grenade from a cool thing that bonk bonk bonked around into a horrible orange sweet potato that bounced precisely twice then stopped for "easier placement".

Whoever was in charge obviously got lucky with Quake I in spite of their best efforts.
