A new Biggest Loser study shows why it's so hard to lose weight and keep it off

The NY Times also has a great article on that scientific study, which has been published in the journal Obesity . The study, and the commentary in the Times article, are really insightful:

NY Times Biggest Loser article

Link to full study, and summary

Note that the Times only allows 10 free articles a month, and the original study may need a subscription but the summary page is free.


I've said it before many times here, and at the risk of you guys rolling your eyes at me: Eat more food, to lose more weight

The trick is though to eat filling whole plant foods. Beans, potatoes (sweet is better), rice (brown is better), whole grain breads, whole meal pasta.


If you are truly interested in permanently losing weight read any of these books below, eat their hearty meals, and you'll be losing weight at average of 2.5kg a month. Doesn't sound like a lot, but after 2 years that's 60kg. and that's WITHOUT EXERCISE!


The Starch Solution - Dr John McDougall
The Negative Calorie Effect - Dr Neal Barnard
Power Foods for the Mind - Dr Neal Barnard
Engine #2 Diet - Rip Esselstyn
21 Day Weightloss Kickstart - Dr. Neal Barnard.

Or if you want just a pure scientific view (no recipes in this one though) there is always "How Not To Die" by Dr. Michael Greger of nutritionfacts.org

I keep banging on about this because I was overweight, and I didn't want to believe the real science. I was dazzled by all the bro-science....it took me all 6 books to get it into my thick head that the science was real. But any one of those books will give steady, permanent results, unlike any diet.

Here's to stuffing your face and losing weight! PERMANENTLY

Gameplay or GTFO. Tired of CG trailers.

+1 I wanna see gameplay not CG that has nothing to do with what the game will be like.

- Didn't we already have some CoD partly in space? Ghosts I think? I didn't play it, just remember the trailers.

- It looks like they've upgraded the engine finally. It's looking pretty sharp.

- Dudebro sci-fi. Still, looks kinda cool.

- I preferred the campaigns of the MWs over BLOPs. Here's to hoping they stick to the former.

- The original MW campaign was a lot of fun, playing a remastered version with modern graphics will be cool.

- I'm sure there's some work to remaster MW, but it's a small fraction of creating the game from scratch. Including it in order to charge $80 for the base game of IW is a neat trick. Expect more of this going forward. This is the new normal for these games.

For sure. I'm torn between the SCI-FI vs the dude-bro take on it all.

I hope a 2142 will fix that. Although BF4 was a bit on the dude bro side too.

I guess there is still the Deathwing FPS by Struem to look forward to.

You guys want a true Doom feeling sequel, grab yourself a FREE copy of Brutal Doom (provided you have one of the older Doom games on Steam), and enjoy.
It's so damn fast, fluid, gory as hell, and well, it's DOOM. Incredibly addicting due to the modern updated FPS controls and speed at which you mow down hordes of Demons.
If they charged for it, I would of happily paid.

Here here!

Looks fine to me. Jesus Christ people, get a grip on yourselves.

It does look fine. That's the problem, it's not EXCELLENT, just fine. It needs to be excellent because it has a lot to live up to. Most people don't want the sequel of the FPS that started it all end up as just another Doom clone.


Also it simply does not feel anything like Doom. This is not Doom.

The gameplay and gunplay look fairly good, but graphics are so clean, and well halo like. Where's the space grit!?

I think I'll wait until this is on special and there are plenty of mods that turn in it back into Doom. Assuming of course that it has mod support...

EDIT:
HOLY CRAP THE PLASMA RIFLE LOOKS LIKE A WATER BALLON CANNON!

Hell is like a kids cartoon.

Nope nope nope

BLACKROOM is metal. It features a new soundtrack and compositions by acclaimed metal guitarist George Lynch, frequently cited as one of the best metal guitarists in the world.

I'm pretty sure Slash from Guns N' Roses is one of the best metal guitarists in the world. His solo part in November Rain is crazy!

I dunno if most people would define Guns N' Roses as metal. It's more somewhere between Glam and Hard rock. Not that it takes away from the November rain solo.
Although now that I think about many of the bands Lynch was in are very glam rock too. *shrugs*

What I really came here to do is, to say that this game will be an epic fail.

Where's the setting to make it not feel like Halo?

Haha this!

I hope this thing at least has mod support so someone can mod the Doom back in to it.



I guess this will probably die like Quake 4....

If the only thing you can do is fly around and check out the game world shouldn't that world at least be beautiful and visually interesting?

Maybe one day PCs will get fast enough so they can map textures onto polygons!

What if someone skipped DS1 and DS2 because of you know.. fucking horrible ports? Worth to play?
Yes!
To me it plays like a cross between resident evil 4 and street fighter 2 with swords

But also I think that Dark Souls 3 is the best one yet. It is what made the first one so interesting, and with all of the polish and balancing that was needed.

The new Doom has captured the atmosphere of the original game perfectly.

It's captured the original Halo perfectly. It's Quake 3 with a Halo skin.

But original doom, nowhere to be seen.

Looking at the reviews of it on Steam I'm not convinced people are asking for another day.

If iD are going to be going by what people are asking for, then we should be seeing DooM killed with fire very soon

They've really stuffed it by trying to combine halo, cod, quake and doom into one game.

It's hard to tell from a MP arena shooter what the single player campaign will be like, but it's so far not captured the essence of the original Doom games.

It's such a simple solution, someone just has to invent a car that runs on plastic and turns into clean water. EASY right?

I would like to see a Star Wars story revolving around a scientist or engineer responsible for the space flight technology, light sabers, or droid AI. -- Oh, wait, my bad. Star Wars isn't science fiction.

Hmm... Perhaps a philosopher or theologian deeply discusses the dark and light side; interpreting its impact on life's meaning and the purpose of existence. -- Ah, nope, will confuse the target audience.

How about a Star Wars story about normal person building all those infrastructures or simply living out a day in the life. Showing how the society operates and where it's heading. -- Oh my bad, unless it's a space battle, arena setting, or long drone political speech, the universe doesn't exist in that galaxy far far away.

What's my point?

Star Trek > Star Wars


When it comes to TNG I couldn't agree more It's my favorite show ever. It's like the James Burke of sci-fi.

I would go so far and say that TNG > any series ever to date. It makes all other shows and the subjects that they deal or struggle with look very simplistic.

TNG is like Plato does sci-fi.

Paying for DLC is bad enough. But paying for DLC that you don't even know what the quality will be like is pretty silly.

If anything the public should be suing Paul Walker and co for glamorizing dangerous driving on public roads.

There should seriously be a law that lets you hit people with sticks when they drive like these douche nuggets.
