    that's awesome Herc!! Nothing like having a coworker come to work high as fuck and then want to sit around and talk about how he has no idea how they're going to get everything done while I"m on maternity leave. uhhh, come to work 3 hours earlier when normal people do and not be so high you can barely open your eyes is a good start.
  4. It tastes like burning: the acid reflux thread

    ever try Zantac? It's always worked for me. I"m also doing Bragg's ACV before every meal w/ water for a different reason and notice that since I've been doing this I have no heartburn. Worth a shot.

    the handful who are so pissed are totally irrelevant hacks even in that movement. Reason's take on it has been great. http://reason.com/blog/2016/05/19/why-mark-zuckerberg-should-have-told-con

    This is tricky. I'd say what they're saying more about fruit smoothies is that most people are adding a cup+ of fruit that includes a banana, maybe yogurt also. It can easily be 40+ grams of carbs which are going to turn to fat stores because they're all fructose. Even as whole fruit you don't want to eat more than a serving which is a very small piece of fruit or up to 1c of strawberries and 1/2c most other berries, or 1/2 not very ripe banana. I don't put more than 1/4 cup of berries in one and that's still 6g of carbs. If you drink it in the morning it'll have more negative effects than it will afternoon or night due to hormones in your system that cause the spike. If you're not eating it with a lot of protein powder in it it's like a candy bar to your body. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes with the highest number on a test my OB had ever seen. I had been watching my sugar and carbs, but had been drinking a lot of milk. That alone had put me in dangerous territory. I had been eating healthy my whole pregnancy, and still need to gain 10 lbs in the last 9-10 weeks. My A1C reveals I was likely prediabetic pre-pregnancy but my urine tests didn't show any red flags. Luckily I'm in a "we can reverse this post delivery" phase but it was scary as fuck to get that call that I was almost 300 and felt totally normal. I've done a TON of research and have been tracking every bit of food/drink that I ingest for about a month now. My numbers have decreased 40%--my doctors are shocked I don't need more insulin (only doing at night b/c of my fasting #s but they dropped so much we are already scaling it down when most prego women have doubled it by now). I stopped eating any grains. I only eat 1/2 a green apple or a cup of berries max at a time, and it has to be with protein. I can only eat max 30g of carbs at a time (that's is a ton are from veggies). if you track what you eat you'll be shocked at how many carbs you're likely eating (I thought I was savvy about this but not until you weight/measure everything do you see how easily 30g of carbs add up). The only sugar I eat is from real food. I don't crave any sweets or carbs at all. I have to force myself to get the calories I need to keep gaining weight b/c real food is really filling and keeps you full! Quick rant: the ADA recommendations for gestational diabetes is 175g carb a day. You only need, even pregnant, 50 to ensure you avoid ketosis (which they don't even know is bad but insist it probably is). It infuriates me how a dietician told me I should eat pasta and bread, etc..then tell me she's shocked I don't need more insulin. It's like telling an alcoholic they need at least 8 beers a day to get better, but don't drink 10, that's really bad. Type 2 diabetes is a huge pharma scam, and it's so sad that they perpetuate this "treat your reversible problem with drugs". Oh and I've realized insurance companies only help pay for 4 testing strips a day, so I paid $68 out of pocket to get me through my month since testing is the only way to know what your body rejects and you shouldn't eat. That's a lot of $ for a lot of people. Yet hey pay for the insulin 100%, as much as I get prescribed. WTF?! /rant I'm watching that documentary tonight!
  7. Member News, please read

    Thanks for sharing Laura, and introducing many of us to Matt. He was a great guy. Kind soul, super smart, great musician. Sad to lose him.

    I don't think it's likely, but certainly possible. Biden has said he really regrets not jumping in. Obama could tell the FBI to hold off until after convention and BOOM. Biden's in. @NateThe answer is hell. A hot, hot, fresh hell nobody has even tried to explain to you. The Instagram like filter and the casual, 'anything goes' tone conveyed inthis photograph makes these candidates seem relaventand 'with it!' As a millennial undecided voter, I like that. Where else mightI learn more information about these two intriguing figures?

    nm you both beat me to it. Anyone else notice his comment about Biden running? Hillary gets indicted and Biden saves the day w/ a Bernie VP? maybe....

    Sure, do whatever you want if that's what you're concerned with. Most people can't afford to if they wanted to. I have no problem with people buying organic food--I do sometimes when it's something i just like better--but it's not necessarily actually organic or better for you.
  13. Whatcha eating?

    getting this email made my day! It's almost Bo Time in the Fredericksburg area. This Friday, April 29, Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits will open its first franchise in Stafford County at 20 Bojangles’ Way off Route 17. President Stan Seymour said he has plans for future growth in the region, including locations in Spotsylvania and Fredericksburg. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring a brand new Bojangles’ to Fredericksburg,” said Seymour. “We’re excited to be part of the local community, and we know the residents in Fredericksburg have been eagerly awaiting the grand opening of our new restaurant.”

    Getting this email from the local paper! I've been craving a good biscuit my whole pregnancy and have abstained, but.... It's almost Bo Time in the Fredericksburg area. This Friday, April 29, Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits will open its first franchise in Stafford County at 20 Bojangles’ Way off Route 17. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring a brand new Bojangles’ to Fredericksburg,” said Seymour. “We’re excited to be part of the local community, and we know the residents in Fredericksburg have been eagerly awaiting the grand opening of our new restaurant.”
