Comment: Re:IBM selling Mainframes to the Nazis? (Score 1) 110

The *fucking* point is: a holerith machine and a mainframe is the exact same thing.

Considering the state of the art of the time involved.

No idea why you bring up nazis, miss the point, bring up moral and insult me now.

Is it "morally" correct to insult me because I'm from germany and the nazis where from germany, too?

Or why do you insult me?

You did not get the point of my last 2 or 3 posts? Is that a reason to insult someone?

Wow ...

So Boko Haram buys their mainframes from whom? If they actually buy them, they buy them from IBM, Oracle or Fujitsu. A no brainer to figure.

Well, if the americans want to call this "Ketonic Diet" when it is simply a fat burning diet, then it is no wonder that no one really understands nutrition there.

I frankly don't get what you mean with "High carb + higher carb" and "High carb + high carb + low fat" and this "High healthy fats + high healthy fats" ...

The question if you might have or might not have problems with a diet that has very high fat levels is your heart, circulation system and most of all: gall/bile.

Regarding typical american diet: it is simply to much of everything. To much sugar/carbs, to much fat AND to much proteins. And on top of that to much "no fat" diet food, "no sugar" sugar replacement stuff like diet cokes. If one mainly eats carbs, for what ever reason, then he simply should focus on not combining it with fat and trying to eat carbs with a so called "low glycemic index".

And a simple thing is to simply get rid of any kind of sweet soda, regardless if it contains sugar or artificial sweetener.

If you only eat like 2100 - 2400 kcal, depending on your "brain usage", yes. But most people who want to lose weight eat far more than that. Up to 4000 kcal.
So they first need to cut minimum 1500 kcal, then they have to "work out" to burn another 800. So you easy see: the prime focus is the cutting of intake. And: a more "healthy" diet, like eating stuff that gives the nutritions without also pulling in to much calories.

Point is: in the above (not unreasonable) example, cutting down on intake is already twice as effective as walking 12-15km (I did not check if that even burns so much kcals).

unlike with carbs where the body works with urgency to get them out of the bloodstream now.
That is not the problem of carbs.
The problem is that insuline (high glycemic index) also triggers fat storage in(to) fat cells.
So high carb + low fat = not necessarily a negative effect.
High carb + high fat level, dependin gon the ampunt of fat, lots of fat is stored, depending on the amount of carbs, thye are converted into fat, too (but that again depends on availbale fat acids and plenty of other circumstances)

No fat at all medium carb diets have no fat storing effects ...

I understand that keto is a new buzzword in dietry, but naming a diet by the waste product it produces is a bit wiered imho :)

I do to much sports to live on a extreme low/zero carb diet
As I have no diet problems, I see no point in it anyway ...

It is an error to assume you can eat as much fat as you want if you live on a low/zero carb diet.

The fat is not stored as quickly as if carbs are involved, however surplus fat is nevertheless stored if the body can manage it (which depends on a lot of factors, e.g. amount of fat cells)

Either you did not read the links, or you do not comprehend them.

Second link (http://www.health.harvard.edu/healthy-eating/glycemic_index_and_glycemic_load_for_100_foods)

100% Whole Grained bread (Natural Ovens) 51 30 7
Pumpernickel bread 56 30 7
50% cracked wheat kernel bread 58 30 12
Coarse barley bread, 75-80% kernels, average 34 30 7

The three above are full / whole grain breads.
Now the "white flour breads"

Wonderà bread, average 73 30 10
Whole wheat bread, average 71 30 9

Relevant is the first number, glycemic index. It determines if it triggers a high insulin level and transport of fat into fat cells and transformation of carbs into fat.

The bottom line is that eating carbs is eating carbs whether they are whole grain or refined they still metabolize into sugars and you will bonk when eating them
That is nonsense, while I eat not much carb, I still eat carb ... e.g. beer has lots of crabs.

As long as you have no intolerance and eat healthy it bottom line does not matter what you eat.

For the average fat american (or for that matter european) however it is easier to lose weight on a low carb diet ... but that basically also implies a ZERO carb diet, in the limited sense as this is possible.

Since you seem to think you have your stuff together, how come it hasn't worked for you? Don't know what you mean. Nutrition works fine for me, and all people I taught lost weight and are now healthy :D

(Want me to explain the other links to you, too?)

Any effect of excercising beyond repairing damaged muscles and perhaps increasing muscle growth is gone 15 minutes after you stopped excercising.

No idea where you those ifiotic ideas from ...

If your body has tendencies towards 'panic shutdown' I suggest a serious health check. Probably a mental one even.

The idea that something like this even exists is ridiculous.

But you do realize that this scheme is only good enough to hold your weight, not to lose any?
And it does not take into account many modern problems like fiber splitting gut bacteria.
To lose weight you need a trick to convince your body to start burning your body fat ... calories alone don't do that trick, nor the lack their-off.
