Hmm.. I'm not likely to be taking your advice about a healthy diet, in fact IMHO the best possible diet is to take your 'ideas' and do the complete opposite.....

Any diet that considers Tabouli or Cuban Black Bean Salad to be an inherently "bad" thing for any reason beyond actual food allergies or food sensitivity is demonstrably stupid.

Your act is wearing thin. I know you're making this nonsense up. I know you're not following your nonsensical "diet." Why maintain this absurd pretext? Why keep pimping this absurdity? What are you getting out of these interactions?

Nationalcosmopolitan, assuming you're still alive, are you fond of fried eggs? I stumbled across this image of eggs being fried using a "pot of gold at the end of the rainbow" cookie cutter as a mold. It's kinda cool.

Translations of the German word "Eier" (eggs) used as slang.

There was a Danish TV programme about one of those guys two years ago, Kay Hougaard, a former butcher, after one of the followers of the cult of inedia died of starvation.
We collected a number of links about him and his claims at Dansk Skeptica.
As you can see, the cult leader is quite chubby – and he turned out to be a frequent customer both at the local hot-dog stand and at the baker’s (those Danish pastries!).

This one goes in the scrapbook.

Will you eventually combine it with your huge dumps and thus give yourself the great relief and buffet all in one toilet visit?

It’s been a while since he posted. Anyone know if he’s dead, or just enfeebled by starvation?

In fairness to NC, though, we know that he is of an older persuasion, and that he has a non-diet that is a recipe for a long slow death by starvation. One wonders if foot has not met receptacle by now given the dearth of correspondence.

I'm pretty sure NC has been hospitalized or buried by now. I'l largely forgotten about him until I saw this video about Diabulimia.

I wonder then at his continued silence.

People could "survive" eating a very limited diet, health experts told us, but they wouldn't get everything their bodies needs to function.
