Well to be fair, I doubt they're the exact same assholes.
Insider Trading == using material non-public information to your advantage when buying / selling securities.
If the information inputs to the HFT algorithms are puplic (not sure if they are or not), wouldn't that make whatever was done with them NOT Insider Trading?
When I see a wealthy person using kickstarter I just see greed and a complete lack of dedication to their own ideas and abilities.
Isn't it awesome how sweeping generalizations like that are so accurate?
I found myself eating a lot of fresh vegetables and I avoided eating beef (one of the more calorie dense meats). It's really pretty simple.
As I said in my original post, for the first 15 weeks I did this I lost 30 pounds. The ONLY thing I looked at was how many calories I consumed and I kept my intake at or near what MyFitnessPal suggested. Some days I was over, some days I was under. On average I stuck to the limit and the graph of how much weight I lost was an almost straight line.
My wife had an exactly similar experience. We both started at the same time and after the same period of time passed we had each lost the same amount of weight. Any of my friends that started using the app, and honestly followed the calorie limits saw similar weight loss.
Your measurements don't have to be exact. When I guess at something I try to err on the side of logging more than I actually ate. Doing otherwise is really just lying to yourself.
