The diet of New Saturday - the second week.

Mod Info The previous thread was getting long and generating duplicates. I have therefore opened this continuation thread. Eagle-eyed readers will note that some off-topic posts have not been copied to this thread; will you all kindly remember to stay on topic, and find other threads in which to discuss matters that are not concerned with Nationalcosmopolitan's eating regime.

"Cuba demonstrates how much nations can do with the resources they have if they focus on the right priorities - health, education, and literacy.""
To believe that the social quality of life depends only on the GDP per capita, it is the same as to believe that the quality of sex depends only on the size of the penis.

That would be the person who can write in coherent sentences and doesn't compulsively lie about starving himself and the "great benefits" it gives.

OK, halleyscomet, I’m afraid the name “Dr Mengele” had not been familiar to me, which is why when NationalCosmopolitan posted that reference to me, it meant nothing to me. When you pointedly referenced that name, I looked it up, and this, astonishingly, is what I find. And this.

Now my first reaction on seeing exactly who this infamous Dr Mengele actually was, was exactly what you’re saying, that here, finally, is sure proof that NationalCosmopolitan is simply trolling. Especially given the particular geography where the man operates (as you point out yourself). And when you identify a troll, my personal rule is, stop throwing them further troll-feed, irrespective of further provocation.

But you know what struck a discordant note? The fact that the man has invested such a prodigious amount of time and effort in posting here at this forum. Full 94 pages in this thread alone, and at least half of that huge amount of content has been created by NationalCosmopolitan himself. That’s a staggering amount of effort to put in! Trolls can sometimes devise elaborate tricks, I know, but not this elaborate, and not with this prodigious amount of time and effort invested, surely!

So I went back to the man’s post (the one I’d responded to), and see, this is what he actually says : “For myself I’m an uncompromising physician, a veritable Dr Mengele”, or words to that effect. He isn’t claiming that he’s going around by that name, nor that he’s self-identifying by that name. To me that statement seems analogous to a religious person declaring “In such and such scenario I can be just as merciless/uncompromising as the Devil himself”, or something like that. Such an announcement would not necessarily mean that this man isn’t really religious, it would probably be no more than a rhetorical device, perhaps a somewhat dramatic statement made in order to emphasize how very uncompromising he can be to himself.

Is NationalCosmopolitan trolling? Perhaps. I agree with you that he cannot possibly be following his diet exactly as he claims. My personal view, like I said earlier, is that he probably holds this diet as an ideal, pretends to others that he’s following it exactly, but himself cheats a great deal, even as he tries to live up to it as best he can. Perhaps like a smoker pretending to have given up his cancer sticks, he still sneaks in a few that he does not report in his abstinence chart. And that’s bad enough, in his case, and needs to be discouraged in the strongest possible terms! (Discouraged how? Perhaps by attempting to talk sense to him? Or by reporting him to authorities? Or by ridiculing him? Or by simply not offering him any further troll-feed to encourage him on this forum? I don’t know, take your pick.)

But no, I don’t think his “Dr Mengele” comment, taken in itself, sheds any light, one way or the other, on whether he’s trolling.
Thanks to me you have learned who was Doctor Mengele.
When you found out who was Dr. Mengele , you decided that I am a troll.

Listen speeches of any leader of any state and any member of any parliament in any country; and you will understand what is the real trolling.

How closely do you monitor your salt intake?

Here's Gregory in Russian talking about his diet.
"to discuss matters that are not concerned with Nationalcosmopolitan's eating regime" it is the classical example of trolling.
But I can't nothinng to do with those people.

All what I know that I have achived a great result - "(42 days freedom from eating)/ 7 days eating lifestyle" and in future I intent almost not to eat for 300 - 400 days (I will eat about 1000 - 1500 kcal once in 24-40 days to get defecations till I will achive my weight 42 - 45 kg.)

Acording my experience after 10 - 15 days freedom from eating I begin to lose not more then 70 gr of my weight - my fat a day.
So every 100 days I will lose 7 kg of my weight till my weight will not achieve 42-45 kg.
I call this great step of my greate project " The man - Accumulator".
I will make from myself the best accumulator in the world that will be in the working regime 24 houres day for about 400 days.

You think that it is a lie that many days starvation gives a great health benefits or you think that I lie when I say that I hve adapted for to "Eat Only in the 7th Weeks Lifestyle"?

What does it mean to have low blood sodium?

Quote:
Losing sodium quickly is a medical emergency. It can cause loss of consciousness, seizures, and coma.

Common symptoms of low blood sodium include:

weakness
fatigue or low energy
headache
nausea
vomiting
muscle cramps or spasms
confusion
irritability

I think he's lying through his teeth about sticking to this "diet" but if he is telling the truth, the man needs to eat.

tHIS is too much!!

My guess is he goes a day or perhaps a couple days without eating, then gives up and spends a day stuffing his face. [Unless of course he's out-and-out Poe-ing, as you say.] Anyway, if he's seeing this, today is definitely face-stuffing day for him!

I have to say I don't find those pictures remotely tempting. If anything they've ruined my appetite. And no, I'm not a vegetarian, I just don't like junk food.

Haven't we had this conversation before? Once again not a Poe. NC really believes this. Right up to the funny hat. Don't start me on the Jerusalem Temple on a blimp malarkey. Think "Blade Runner".

Try Huel (short for Human fUEL). No planning required.

Basically, it's a weird replacement for the "hassle" of cooking. Read/watch the testimonials. It's like some odd cult that believes that eating is just another chore to be eliminated.

Nah, he couldn't possibly literally believe he's following this system when actually he's not. halley'scomet seems to think he's fibbing, you seem to believe him. I think he's half-way there, holds on to this as some kind of ideal, but then cheats generously while pretending he's following his diet.

Whatever, unlike the others of his ilk, he seems to be a sweet (if batty) old man. Hope he doesn't hurt himself!

42kg - 45kg is your goal, NationalCosmopolitan? How tall are you?

Unless you are very short, that will be massively underweight. You are putting your health at serious risk by aiming at a weight that low, and you really should consult a doctor.

Basically, it's a weird replacement for the "hassle" of cooking. Read/watch the testimonials. It's like some odd cult that believes that eating is just another chore to be eliminated.


Food is one of life's great pleasures. I am skeptical of people who want to completely eliminate pleasures that are perfectly healthy so long as you don't get carried away.

On second thought, no I'm not skeptical. I pity them. I pity the ones who are afraid of such basic pleasures and I pity the abject losers whose own self esteem is so fragile that they feel the need to control others through convincing them to forgive perfectly reasonable pleasures.

Most people in the world are not rich.
They pay 70% - 80% of their wage on food.
My eating lifestyle give to those people a great opportunity to pay for their food 1/7 of amount they pay today.
This way most people of the world can save 60%-68% of their wage and to become much more happy and free, and well educated then they are today.

I live for those 3,5 years as if my income has been increase 5-6 times.
I am so free that I have no any reson to lie.

I think that every facts of my life that I announce in this thread seems you a lie.
May be you need to go to the doctor?
But much better to eat once a day or only in every 2nd days.
After that you will believe of all facts of my eating lifestyle for sure.

If you usually give this food or the similar one to your children - you are their enemy.

In my future eating project "The Man - Akkumulator"
I will eat averagely once in 24 - 42 days about 1000 kcal of food to get the body cleaning defecation till my weight will not become 42 kg.
According my former 3,5 years great experience i can say that iIt will take me about 400 days.
Then I will eat every day as much as i want till my weight will not recover.
I think it will take me about 400/6=67 days.
I predict that the great ratio of the 6 Days of Creation and the 7th Day of God's Rest - 6/1 will remain.
