      Born in '71 for context.

      Fat bad!

      Sugar fine, just don’t go nuts. Bad for your teeth.

      Had a hard time getting my head around the idea that some fats are not only OK, but necessary and good for you. The brain washing goes deep.

      Also, all y’all are fat as fuck. It’s truly freaky what we kids considered “fat” vs. what people today call “fat”.

      Pro tip: Exercise won’t drop pounds, but do it anyway! Also, it’s OK, even desirable, to be low-key hungry.

        Keto taught me amazing lessons about fat. I just had to unlearn shoving cheese and bacon in my mouth all the time when I quit it.

        I’m in your cohort.

        Every time I eat fatty meat, I’m pretty sure it’s gonna kill me. And part of me thinks it’s perfectly fine to throw back sugary drinks and treats.

        Those fuckers have a lot to answer for.

      the false implication being that calories of energy are somehow better than “calories of fat”. Though since they don’t say it out loud they can mislead people without technically lying.

        Nope. Still propaganda. It has a negative cultural connotation but any form of persuasive rhetoric fits the basic definition of propaganda.

        Of course they didn’t. Do you think the body metabolizing sugar like any other calorie source and storing it as fat is new information that was completely unknown to science in the 1960s? You think they knew how to split the atom and go to the moon, but not the single most basic fact about nutrition?

      I dont know how people do it, every sugar alternatives I’ve tried taste like ass: sucralose, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, saccharin, all of them are fucking disgusting.

      I’d say sucralose is the most pernicious, I’ve bought things not labeled as no sugar(Asian countries LOVE using it in random shit) and as soon as that aftertaste hits I gag.

        It’s best to just change your palette so it doesn’t need sugary tastes anyway. If you don’t want sugar substitutes, just change your diet so your body doesn’t expect sweet things at all. That’s a great move.

          This is the way!

          Same with coffee or tea. The moment you find the good stuff you easily see there is neither need for sugar nor milk in both of them.

            Everyone looks at me strangely when I ask for 0% sugar in my bubble tea. The pearls already have sugar in them, and when your palette changes, you can taste the tea and milk so much clearer rather than having all of that covered up by the taste of sugar.

        Tbh attempting to replace sugar with “sugar alternatives” is part of the problem. The other part of the problem is that commercial goods are sold with a fuckton of super sugar (high fructose corn syrup et al.) added to them which is completely unnecessary. If you just try to get your sugar from natural sources and try to eat some fiber with it (whole fruit is perfect for this) you’re on the right track.

        The short version is simply: don’t drink your sweets

    Since nobody has mentioned it, if you eat Skittles or gummy bears after a workout it makes you feel so much better, at least in my experience. If I don’t eat sugar I feel like I need food urgently.

          TL;DR: Eating Haribos after workouts doesn’t benefit your body. People who are having controlled treats and cheats during their diet plans may be less obese (correlation). The author of this article concluded there’s a causality between eating Haribos after workout and being able to stay on your diet plans based on anectodal knowledge.

        Huh? It’s well known that it’s good to have carbs after working out. The problem is when you’re just eating carbs without using the energy because then it gets stored as fats.

        I don’t know if the particular comment you responded to is meant as a joke, but in my experience, a sugary drink after a hard workout does feel amazing. I get this post-workout thirst that no amount of water can quench, but a Gatorade will always do the trick.

        It’s pretty popular with MMA and other people working out pretty hard. You can also mix glucose powder with some caffeine, OJ, and a tiny bit of salt.

        If you’re training for weight loss it might be better to avoid it unless the calories have been accounted for in whatever diet plan you’re using.

      Another option instead of gummy bears that people use is a sweet potato although those can be hard to have on hand right after a workout.

      You can also buy glucose powder.

    Now, it turns out, bacon is actually good for you in moderation. Turns out it has the same Omega 3 fat found in healthy fish and other foods, so now they’re saying, a healthy diet should include bacon. And sugar, well - a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, so we do need some sugar in our diet also.
