A lot of people should. Wouldn't work for me, even now.
Reminds me of some show (maybe it was "@ Midnight) where they asked, Fill in the blank: Nothing's more American than -------. One of the answers was "gastric bypass surgery".

Yeah. A sedentary day for me, with no bike rides and no walking outside of the house, is about 2,500 calories. When I'm trying to cut weight, I'll aim for 2k calories on those kinds of days. If it's relatively high in protein, I don't get too hungry or too hangry.

If you really want to partake in "beef" that deserves the quotation marks, Taco Bell is the place to go.


Egads! Toxic Smell is never, ever the place to go..

I shoot for under 2000 on office days. More physically active days. I'm typically under 2500. Even at that, it's hard to shed pounds.

I recently signed up for Paramount+ and I'm working my way through the various Star Trek series because I want to watch some of the newer series that I never watched the first time around like Voyager and Picard.

Holy moses I forgot how craptacular the first two seasons of TNG were. Sometimes a bad episode is still watchable because of good acting but there are just a massive amount of stinking turds in those first two seasons. I'm going to start skipping them. I watched them all 20+ years ago when I was a kid but I'm just trying to re-familiarize myself with them.

The original series is so bad I gave up after about 5 episodes.

No White Castle for me as we live below the great divide.

None in my area, either.

I don't know, man. I don't think I want my burgers to be any more than merely improbable.

2100 calories/day is how I dropped from 230+ to 200. But that's NET calories, adjusted for calories burned exercising. I've stabilized around 200, partly because having reached that goal I can't be bothered to continue calorie counting, and partly because my midweek rides make me crave carbs.

That's what I assumed, but haven't looked closer.

Possibly. But I have learned to tread lightly around *** *** *****. Better to just leave well enough alone.

How about "unlikely"?

How do you feel about the Doubtful Burger?

31 years ago (it feels so weird to even think that) when touring for 6 weeks I ate 6000 calories per day and lost 10 pounds.
