Meet Two Pioneers In the Exciting Academic World of "Fat Acceptance" Propaganda
Plus, GAINZZZ Thread

Can I just say, not all heroes wear capes?

It's one thing to offer a bit of emotional solace to overweight people.

It's another thing to evangelize for obesity as a "healthy" alternative to not being obese.

Meet the two professors leading the way in 'fat studies'

Two professors at a midwestern university are working to develop and legitimize the field of "fat studies," a discipline that examines the cultural and sociological phenomenon of overweight and obese human beings.

Laurie Cooper Stoll, a professor of sociology, and Darci Thoune, an associate professor of English, are both leading scholarly research in this field from the University of Wisconsin -- La Crosse. Their website, "Two Fat Professors," declares that the academics are "fighting fatphobia with education, community-building and a lot of sass."

I totally think that a woman extolling the virtues of excess fat (and getting high on her own supply, if you catch me) should be a "superfit hero trainer" at a YMCA.

Laurie teaches ZumbaŽ Gold classes at the YMCA in La Crosse and Onalaska, Wisconsin. The main goal in her classes is to have fun and celebrate our bodies!

Well, that sounds like a very rigorous plan for staying fit.

You can follow her choreography or dance to the beat of your own drum. She promises never to engage in diet talk, negative fat talk, or body shaming during class (nor in her everyday life).

A trainer should never, ever discuss a healthy diet, a healthy weight, or how to lose weight.

I wonder what other "studies" she specializes in?

Dr. Laurie is also a Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

You don't say.


She earned her Ph.D. and graduate concentration in Women's and Gender Studies...

You don't say.

You don't say, you don't say, you don't say.

And you should check out the picture at the link, if your curious to have your inklings confirmed.

Darci Thorne is here, and is surprisingly slender.

Just kidding, obviously.

Her twitter bio describes her as, "Queer-mo academic with way leftist leanings who likes to eat."

You don't say, you don't say, you really honestly did not have to say.

So, what are your GAINZZZ?

I have no GAINZZZ myself. I did a five day fast a week ago, but other than that, I just followed the Two Fat Professors' plan and just have done no exercise for months and just kinda ate whatever. I kept my weight fairly stable (I even hit a new low on September 11) for a while, but then, come Thanksgiving, I just blew everything off and gained about ten pounds in six weeks.

The fast took off about three of those pounds.

What about you? Any goals? Any resolutions?

I had that, and in fact got that again during my bad period.

For me, fixing it comes down to two things: staying low carb, and not eating within three hours of going to bed.

That last part is important, at least for me.

If you do get it, I find that having two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed into 6-8 ounces of water will get rid of the GERD, albeit, in about 40 minutes.

GERD isn't really a problem of too much acid, but too little. If you give your stomach a boost with acid, you'll digest whatever's just sitting in your stomach causing the GERD.

33 GERD isn't really a problem of too much acid, but too little. If you give your stomach a boost with acid, you'll digest whatever's just sitting in your stomach causing the GERD.

Yeah not eating within a while of laying down is a big help. So is avoiding obvious villains like tomatos, hot sauce, etc. I used to get horrendous heartburn attacks and use a bit of baking soda mixed with water to neutralize the boiling in my gut.

Waking up in the middle of the night vomiting into your mouth is not much fun. Omeprezol has helped a lot, along with a much restricted diet, staying on a schedule, and lots of vitamins.

Pretty sure I have at least one very nasty ulcer, which I hope is healing as well.

And yeah, RIP Neal Peart.

35 >>> started watching what I ate - no crazy dieting - but being mindful of carbs and choosing more protein when possible and I started running/jogging again and have lost about 9 pounds!

There is a "diet" plan which consists merely of writing down what you eat-- and that's it.

You don't have to restrict.

But it works, because just making yourself think about what you're eating winds up making you make better decisions.

I stopped weighing myself at my low point in early september and then just totally stopped thinking about diet or health, until I recently got on a scale and said, "Oh shit."

Just keeping mindful of stuff has all sorts of good effects.

38 Well IMO a trainer that gets overweight people to exercise is better than one that tells them they have to lose 50 lbs before they even start towards fitness.

Once they are moving their bodies, maybe finding this relieves stress better than crunching down that bag of pretzels, if they want to take the second step and find a better eating plan, there are lots of resources out there.

51 I've been doing a daily intermittent fast (don't eat 16 hours or more, eat for an 8 hour or less window) since mid-September. No idea on weight loss as we don't own a scale, but it definitely has knocked at least an inch off my waist line measuring by which hole I fasten the belt. Possibly an inch and a half, about ready to bring it in another notch. Side benefit: reduced weight has reduced pressure on my bladder so I sleep quite a lot better at night, or is that too much information.

59 I think one thing that happens when you do something that smashes habits and establishes new ones--like fasting does this very well--is you can get cocky about it. "Well, I know I can just go back to fasting..."

But you can easily end up establishing the same old bad habits all over again.

68 I've been exploring the impact of cold on the body. I have noticed that if I can't sleep, I am usually hot. Taking the covers off until I get cold then covering back up usually works.

Borderlines, such as myself and every mainstream journalist apparently, can use cold showers, ice in the hands and so forth, to change mood. A cold shower works wonders to get your mind off whatever is bothering you.

Instapundit just did a cryospa. That's where they use nitrogen to rapidly cool your skin. I looked up here in the Springs and they do that.

yeah exactly, I think subconsciously I just thought, "No big deal, if I gain weight I'll just do a long fast."

But long fasts aren't easy, and they're a real pain in the ass as far as other stuff, like social engagements or working out. (Which is hard to do on a fast, and really can't be done on a dry fast.)

95 Losing weight is tough. We all get it. We're surrounded by inexpensive, yummy, high calorie food. Then, between gaming, tv, and the internet, we are also surrounded my lots of sit down entertainment.

However, trying to pretend that being obese is just as healthy as being in the normal weight range isn't helpful.

It's part of the left's move away from personal responsibility.

Got a TREK hybrid, which is best for my area, where i use it on and off trail as well as on streets. It's worth spending the bucks for a good bike, especially if you're, er, 29 years old like I am.

Riding always puts a smile on my face. Something that starting up a car never does. And man, does biking help you stay in shape!

I am trying to limit the food intake and make better choices. I lost some weight when I had colon cancer surgery and gained that back. I hate stress eating and had such a horrible work schedule and commute eating late also didn't help.

I liked to jog but last year every time I tried my knees were whining ouch ouch ouch every step. This sucks because just getting out of the office into fresh air for a break a few times a week was a big part of the motivation.

I've added muscle that I've lost since I got out, and am training to run the Marine Corps Marathon in October, with a target time of 3:59:39.

My long days are only 8 miles now, but it'll come, and I'm extremely motivated.

192 GLurker-- Check out sauna effects on dementia, etc.

CR Taylor/Ace-- One thing we've noticed is that the cold pool after a workout reduces soreness afterwards, often dramatically. You don't want to do it right after strength training because the cold *may* inhibit protein uptake into the muscles. But after you've cooled down it should be fine.

Sauna is supposed to be stimulative at any point in a workout (before, during, after) but I haven't checked that aspect out. I've only noticed sleep is improved--seems to help the kids out a lot, too.

I do the sauna basically on the strength of the 30-40% reduction in All Cause Mortality in nearly 29 year olds.

I put together a weight loss web site a while back, and it estimated your basal metabolic rate from your age, your weight, your sex, and your activity level. There's a standard formula for that.

One of the main advantages of exercise is that raising your activity level really cranks up your BMR. The calories burned during exercise, however, are pretty minimal.

Get into a good stress reduction program and plan out an exercise program you can do every day. Physical activity will reduce stress and lead to better brain chemistry. Start with something easy and build up repetitions and mileage each day. Rise early, as that helps with improving body/brain functions. Get on a better diet that is highly organic and has no preservatives or processed sugar. There are many diets that can help guide you but use these fundamental tenets so you don't get overwhelmed.

229 One thing I did when I had diabetes and low carbed it, was that I took glucose readings obsessively before and after meals all day. I kept a spreadsheet and did a graph. Low carbs=low glucose.

I expected that result, but something I did not expect was this. I would fry up about half a pound of bacon, then cook 4 eggs in the fat like Granny used to do. That would cause my glucose to drop for a little while after I ate.

I learned later that protein causes an insulin spike and without the carbs in the system, glucose drops after a very high protein meal. I think eggs in particular cause more of this effect for some reason. Might be the vitamins in the yolk.

I'm making better choices at meal time but honestly the difference is I don't eat unless I'm genuinely hungry, thus I skip meals. If I eat too many times each day I will make bad choices, so I just don't open myself to choices. If I eat breakfast, no lunch. If I'm not hungry in the morning I just through to lunch. I find it easier to gut it out then make a bunch of smaller good choices during the day. Also I'm only weighing myself once a week. I've found I just get pissed day to day with lack of progress.

Get into a good stress reduction program and plan out an exercise program you can do every day. Physical activity will reduce stress and lead to better brain chemistry. Start with something easy and build up repetitions and mileage each day. Rise early, as that helps with improving body/brain functions. Get on a better diet that is highly organic and has no preservatives or processed sugar. There are many diets that can help guide you but use these fundamental tenets so you don't get overwhelmed. Also read about subjects that require you to use deductive and reasoning skills. You need to exercise your brain too. Most importantly, NEVER QUIT.

290 Lotsa gainzzzz for me.

After the Cardiac Event, I switched up the diet a bit, and my weight loss accelerated.

I'm basically within a pound or two of my goal, which is a problem.

You see, I'm so close it's hard to get up the will to cross the line.

My solution is to lower the goal by five more points so I have to.

Not really eating less, eating a little different, and also focusing on activity.

I don't believe you can starve yourself into good health. Cutting back can help, but you really have to work out and stay active. Otherwise a lot of the weight you're losing is muscle you'll want back later.

292 I started dating a new girl a month ago.

She decided I needed some improvement. I agree with her.

She has decided what i can eat and can't eat and rousts me out of bed in the morning to go to the gym, either in person or via text message....incessant never ending text message, until I acquiesce.

Upside, I have a girlfriend and have dropped 22 pounds in a month and have added muscle content on top of it. I feel better too.

Downside, I ate kale. I have not had a beer in a month because she says it causes soy tits. I've only had 8 liquor drinks total in a month and 2 glasses of wine, which completely wrecks my usual depressive state. I've found myself being friendly to other people and doing things around the house that needed doing. Sometimes I'm not even pessimistic.

Its a disgusting state of affairs.

I HAVEN'T been tracking macros or calories very well, but with the shortened eating window I suspect I'm eating less overall: a) because I _appear_ to be dropping weight and b) my workouts (modified 5X5) are getting harder than they should be.

IF is pretty easy once you understand that you will be hungry and have to tough through it.

317 WHhile being dangerously obese is bad for your health, being chubby isn't necessarily. I think for some people getting skinny might be bad for their health: each body has its ideal weight and build that it should be at, and trying to avoid that or change it can be detrimental.

My friend's 12 year old son suffers from seizures and the nutritionist at Children's Hospital has him on a Real Keto diet - his seizures stopped after 2 months on the diet and he lost quite a bit of weight in the process.

329 Want a restricted diet? Try being on dialysis. OTOH, I have lost some weight. Sadly, though, I went insane a couple days before Christmas and began eating everything in sight. But New Year's is past and I am being much more mindful. (Annual pattern. No biggie.)

I used to teach a deep water aerobics class at the Y. I called it the fat, old, working woman's last chance work out. It was at 6:30 pm so women who worked had a chance to make the entire class period. Exercising in deep water is a full on resistance work out since you are working against the pressure of the water the entire time. And it doesn't stress your joints. Shallow water workouts are hell on my knees and hips.

My goal was to give these women stamina and extend their range of motion. Around the beginning of September, I would set a goal for them -- to weigh as much on New Year's Day as they did on Labor Day. If they didn't go insane during the holiday season and attended class faithfully, it could be done. But I did feel sorry for a couple of my ladies who worked in offices where the other women had an unspoken competition to see who could bring in the best goodies. I had it easy with the bookstore and no kids at home -- I just didn't buy or make any goodies.

347 The number of people on the Left who live in lazy denial is astounding. If you're fat, you just proclaim it healthy and "diverse" and you don't have to do anything about it. If you are a slut, you just proclaim that multiple partners is healthy and fulfilling...and you can continue to be a slut. If you are mentally ill and confused you can portray yourself as the made-up "transgender" label and require others to accept your own lazy denial under penalty of law.

If you make an argument that doesn't stand up to scrutiny you abandon any meaningful debate and immediately accuse your opponent of "isms", "phobes", etc. If someone is doing something that doesn't involve you and having fun or success doing so, you demonize said activity so as to try and naturalize your own misery.

Lazy denial..it's what's for dinner.

352 "I have not had a beer in a month because she says it causes soy tits. "

Sounds like you got a good woman.

Do you know what a beer snob is? If not, I'm sure you can guess. I always drink a domestic light beer, usually bud light. When I'm around the snobs they want me to drink IPAs and heavy ales and crap like that.

I read that when women harvest hops they have to wear gloves because it causes their estrogen to go up so much. We also know that sugar will turn you into a woman.

Bud light when I checked last was lowest in hops and sugar. Ergo, a man's beer.

These days when I'm around those guys, I get a Corona or a Dos Equis (like 7 minute abs, their should be Tres Equis).

There's a philosophy of light weight exercises as espoused by Eugene Sandow, an old time strong man. Light weights and higher reps. In the short time I've tried it, it has really reshaped my core, arms and chest. I'll keep that up.

true this, grammie

I don't normally eat a lot of sugar unless I bake for some occasion. I don't drink soda, or eat chips - only on special occasions, and some weekends.

I always forget tbh, that I do not eat like a lot of other folks.

I rarely eat bread, which makes sugar.

a typical day for me is

breakfast
egg + fruit
or yogurt
or just fruit
or cottage cheese + fruit

lunch
soup these days because it's winter (no bread or crackers)
salads - protein salads. Tuna salad, or chicken salad, egg salad, or whatever leftover meats I made the night before on greens. With tuna or chicken salads, which have mayo, I do not include a dressing. If it's a meat I made the night before (or seafood) atop some greens, I add a dressing.

I eat mixed nuts usually for a snack, not too much. 1/8th cup to 1/4 cup. Fattening. But healthy and filing.

Or I have a small yogurt cup for a snack.

Dinner
whatever I make, just don't overeat it

no snacks at night

water for drinking all day
sometimes a tomato juice or motts veggie cocktail
coffee with half and half
milk sometimes - usually in the morning before coffee

Not much fruit juice, because sugars. I eat the whole fruit.

I just don't eat sugar, breads, chips, soda, and junk food like that much at all.

But my dinners are usually caloric so I have to watch, because I make whatever I want to eat, but it's usually healthy to begin with.

good catch
I see people who sit and eat whole tubs of ice cream. I always forget about that.

423 I was doing great last year: exercising regularly, eating healthy and losing weight. But things got stressful around August and I totally fell of the wagon gaining a lot of what I lost back. :-(

But I've started back at it this week and even signed up for an extra fitness challenge at my gym. BTW, need to thank whatever moron brought up Krav Maga in a GAINZZ thread in the past because that's what I do for "gym" and it's been really good for me to combine self-defense with exercise.

I use Myfitness pal to track food (totally agree - its the mindfulness that works) and exercise.

429 My LDL went from 103 to 68, HDL went from 42 to 49, and Triglycerides went from 59 to 37, the lowest the nurse had seen. Now this is taking a small (20 mg) Lipitor every day, but that has been true for some years.

430 It is with broken hearts and the deepest sadness that we must share the terrible news that on Tuesday our friend, soul brother and band mate of over 45 years, Neil, has lost his incredibly brave three and a half year battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma). We ask that friends, fans, and media alike understandably respect the family's need for privacy and peace at this extremely painful and difficult time. Those wishing to express their condolences can choose a cancer research group or charity of their choice and make a donation in Neil Peart's name.

Rest in peace brother.

Really awful to see Neil is gone. Rush was my favorite band growing up. And ugh at how he died (why couldn't it be a sudden heart attack?). Strangely, I remember being more upset/shocked over the news of his daughter's death (car crash). Probably because the band was still active and as a young fan had a closer connection.

Going to discuss dropping the lipitor soon with Dr.,
but reason is history of heart disease in family.

But everything I've read is you want your LDL/HDL ratio as low as possible. Mine is a very low 1.38.

I haven't seen anything that says my levels are too low, although given the state of research, who knows.

450 Some things don't help when you're trying to get in shape.

I remember going *once* to an aerobics class. If I recall correctly it was just after I got back from basic training and tech school so I was in better shape than I'd been, but I barely made it through basic and I've never been "fit".

453 I'm one of those lucky people who can eat pretty much anything, and not have a weight problem. (Likewise, I've never had a cavity.) Clearly, I picked my parents well! However, at age 67, I'm now on the downward slope of life, so I need to exercise daily just to keep up my strength. My new year's resolution is to exercise for five minutes every day. That isn't much, but my goal is to develop the habit of daily exercise; and once I've done that, to build on it gradually. Granted, it's only January 10; but so far, so good.

454 Being more active at my chores is part of my GAINZ I guess, which is why I'm often late to these threads. But I just decided on the kto thing back in September, not sure how I missed out when it was all the rage here ... like what? two years ago? ... I forget.

But I watched probably 100 videos, have been pretty good about sticking to it, have not felt hungry mostly ... usually one meal a day, or now two with maybe four hours between. Lost 25 pounds, aobut 8 more to go and the chart says I'm normal, not "overweight".

Blood pressure way down too, which was a bigger incentive for me, and I'm hoping there are other healing processes underway, including avoiding the dementia issues. So far all is well, food is good, even the keto bread is OK. Avoiding medical emergencies is the best health care plan. cheers ...

455 210 I received bloodwork back that indicates early onset dementia. My cognitive abilities have gone down the toilet after over a decade of high stress. I'm in my middle 30's. I'm terrified right now and fat again because stress and depression.

I would not automatically assume that blood tests are infallible. They all have a certain rate of false positives.

Years ago, I had lab tests that tracked a steadily growing level of an antibody that is an indicator of myasthenia gravis. I thought I was done for. I finally looked into the test and discovered it's not very good, got annoyed at the behavior of the doctors, and quit getting tested. I was actually getting classic early symptoms of the illness, and over time -- the symptoms eventually just faded away and stopped.

Maybe years of stress are giving you a positive test for early onset dementia, and if the stress is removed the marker will fade away. I'd recommend reading up on the test and seeing how reliable it is.

459 My fasting has hit a brick wall for about a year, stable weight 18 hour fast. Sucks, gained a ton over the holidays not fasting so listening to Rogan podcast he's involved in the carnivore diet now. I'm going to go hard on that now.

Posted by: scottye_fl at January 10, 2020 06:35 PM (KC4F9)

460 AHHH I've been waiting for this thread for days and missed it today!! Boo.

Ace, here is my recipe you wanted:

CHEESY CAULIFLOWER RICE

4 cups frozen cauliflower rice
1 tbs Kerry Gold butter or coconut oil
3 tbs cream cheese
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
salt/pepper to taste
splash of heavy whipping cream

Melt oil in skillet on medium heat, then add frozen cauli and salt/pepper. Heat till liquid is cooked out and cauli is heated up, about 5 min. (If you are adding extra veg or meat that is not shellfish, do it around here.) Turn down heat, add the cream cheese and the splash of HWC. (This forms the keto equivalent of a roux.) Then add the cheddar cheese and mix thoroughly. (At this point add extra seasonings, herbs, shellfish like shrimp.) Serve immediately, but I also eat it reheated.

If you want the mouth feel of noodles, then use 5 cups of fresh cauliflower florets in place of the frozen. Heat in skillet with oil till florets soften but still have a slight bite; you do not want them too soft. Then perform the other steps.

I will point out if you are doing this to have the exact replica of macaroni and cheese in your life again you will be disappointed. But I love this recipe because it triggers the SATIETY and comfort of a bowl pf mac n cheese. It calms my crave for it with the huge hits of cheese and I find it yummy. That was my primary comfort food before keto and I don't even crave it anymore. This does the trick for me.

464 on the absorption of magnesium ... quick way I learned of was to put a tablespoon of milk of magnesia into carbonated water ... (or 3 TBS per liter, but that is too much to drink per day) iirc it is better absorbed by the body that way.

I love keto cauliflower cheese! Goes great with stuff like meatloaf or kielbasa and really does seem like mac n cheese.

I didn't keep keto from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day and gained about five lbs. Knocked off three of those already.

466 This "Fat Acceptance" movement is the worse thing to happen to obese people. Myself, I'm an obese person, working really hard to lose weight (down 10.5 lbs!!!). Why? Because I don't want to get sick and die, which is what will happen if I don't. I also have grand kids that like hiking and camping and I want to be able to go too.

Americans need to wake up to the fact that processed, boxed and fast food will make most people fat. All those carbs, all that processed oil, all those preservatives.

I used to be the exception since I've always been fat. Now, even at over 200 pounds, I'm often not the fattest person in the room. It's really sad, especially the kids.
