With the water, you can overdo it for sure, but you can do anything to excess.
I’m speaking more about your average American who drinks a few cans of Coke or Pepsi a day. Replace those with 12oz of water. You’ll feel better and lose weight because you’re not taking in so much refined sugar. You won’t have the crash afterwards either.
Diet isn’t a one size fits all thing, no. However, I never said to consume a lot of carbs. That will make you fat. Your body is much better at processing fat than it is carbohydrates.
I’m coming at this from a getting stronger and being in shape POV. Without some carbs you’ll find it hard to build muscle and get significantly stronger. It depends on what your daily activity is like. Personally, I’m a bit of a nut about this. I lift a couple times a week, do BJJ twice a week, and Karate twice a week. I also try to get in 250 pushups and 500 squats every day.
It all depends on what you’re doing that day, but two eggs your preferred style and a bowl of oatmeal is a fantastic breakfast with a glass of OJ that doesn’t have sugar added. If you’re going to be doing a lot of physical labor that day or lift or work out, maybe add in a protein shake or an extra egg. That oatmeal not only helps you use the protein, but also keeps you feeling full so you’re not tempted to snack on junk or drink a soda.
A meal is a protein, a carb and a fruit/veggie. Without the carb you don’t get the full benefit of the protein or veggie.

You don’t have to have a PhD to eat healthy or be healthy.
1) Exercise regularly, even if it’s nothing more than just running up the steps instead of walking at work or doing 20 squats whenever you can. Work it into your daily routine. Even if you don’t have time for the gym you CAN work in a workout. Be creative. Who cares what your coworkers think? Truth be told, if you do it right they’ll be imitating you in about six months.
2) Eat right. LEAN meat. Steak, chicken, lean ground beef, fish. Not freaking hotdogs or sausages. NO fast food. Kick the soda out of your daily routine. WATER. LOT’S OF WATER. If you MUST have a fizzy caffeine fix, make it a diet soda with no calories. Green veggies and some fruit.
3) Don’t fear carbs or beer. Don’t use them to excess, but carbs are freaking energy that lets the protein you consume build muscle. You won’t get ripped without carbs.
4) Stop fearing chemicals. Chemicals are everywhere, as a matter of fact, everything is chemicals. Without chemistry there is no life. The only thing I can support in “fear” of chemicals is MAYBE “organic” green veggies… but as for fruit, screw it. The increase in price isn’t worth it.

Unless you’re dumb enough to hold Facebook stock this isn’t news…
Well maybe if you’re dumb enough to be on Facebook…

Gun control drives me NUTS.
I keep trying to nail that perfect 1/2″ pattern at 35 yards with my full size .45 USP but somehow ONE round always gets away from me and ruins the pattern! It’s the same thing with my bow at 40 yards and a 3″ pattern!
I can do it at 30 and 35 yards respectively, but not with another five yards… darn you gun/bow control!

I’d be a lot more worried if she was texting.
In this case the kid does most of the work and she can keep her eyes on the road.
Doubt if that fat bastard will ever lose weight. Both were homeless (living in their car[s])? Wonder why they don't sell one and get some decent food instead of some slop at a fast food drive thru? Maybe THEN he'd lose some weight!

At least she’s somewhat attractive… that will work in her favor in prison.

Did anyone else click this thinking to themselves “Please don’t be a long list of kinky sex toys”?
I read the list bracing myself for “fuzzy pink handcuffs”, “Hannibal Lecter mask” and “extremely large di!do”.

Doug’s one of those few honest Democrats.
He thought Cankles would get away with this, because in the past she’s gotten away with everything.
This time it just didn’t work out for her.

The guy who was killed was engaged to the morning anchor, not the female reporter that was shot.

Just do what we did in Colorado. Ban buying mags over 15 rounds and institute a UBL. It made the State violence free overnight!
Not sure why you were downvoted for giving perfectly legitimate information.
SCOTUS *did* screw this one up.

I’m getting sick of the whining from the candidates and the GOP grassroots about this. Really sick of it. It makes me want to vote Democrat just to watch this country burn due to the stupidity currently rife in the Republican party.
This is politics. A knife fight in a telephone booth, put on your big boy pants and strap in or STFU.
“If you have a husband and a wife who are illegal immigrants, and they had two children here who are American citizens — would you deport all of them? Would you deport the American citizen children?”
That is a 100% fair question. It’s one that immigration courts often come down on the WRONG side of by letting all the people stay because of the citizens in the family.
The question is nothing more than a rephrase of “Do you support the way that most immigration courts deal with anchor babies?”.
If you can’t answer a hard question you shouldn’t be in politics, because this is going to get a lot nastier for the GOP candidates before it gets better. While Clinton, Sanders and Biden get softballs the people at NBC/CNN/etc will be aiming straight for the head with their pitches to GOPers.
Does anyone remember Herman Cain? The way that once he got into the top of the pack all of a sudden anonymous women were making claims against him and how they all disappeared as soon as he dropped out? That right there is a DNC SOFTBALL.
Cruz is pulling a Trump and going after Kelly because Trump’s been getting away with it. NOTHING MORE.
Keep up the attacks on Trump supporters & your GOP conservative Tea Party base &you fools will yet again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. What did alienating your conservative base get you in 2012?? The reelection of Barrack Hussein Obama. If you continue to disrespect us we WILL again stay home of vote third party on election day 2016. Keep it up & prepare for POTUS Clinton or Biden or Gore or Sanders or Fauxcahontas.
THREE CHEERS FOR YOU! I couldn't of said it better. Thanks for letting me know there are some sane people here on this forum, The people who are supporting Trump and dumping on Meyn are sounding more like the people who blindly supported Obama.
What a strange, scattered, and confusing mish mash of statements. Its feeble minded people like you that will cause the downfall of this country.
sas- He answered the hard question. Stop the flow and then address the result. I think he should say YES deport all the family. That would be what the law requires... the children go with the parents.. remember Eleon Gonzolas and the FBI snatching him from his grandparents to deport him to Cuba? His mom died trying to get him here.

I forgot barrel length! A longer barrel might well propel the projectiles fast enough to get through that case!

Ferguson… who cares?
These are the same idiots that burnt down their own KFC (LOL!). Who cares what the judge does? It’s not like I ever plan on visiting the town as a tourist.

What are you saying?
Beck carries his own guns! He’s a cavscout-ranger-delta-marsoc-pararescueman! Everyone knows that!

I say “folks” all the time on the blaze… usually when I’d like to use some more colorful language that the mods frown on.

Oh come on, political grandstanding to take a shot at Obama is now news?
Make your arguments Trump, you’ve got some good ones, and leave the BS out of it.

Why would an asthmatic need a device that measures BAC? Seems like an inhaler with something like albuterol would be better.
