"I saw a feature on the telly (news) last night that talked about "intermittant fasting". That idea has been around for awhile, but perhaps it's gathering strength. I use it (today, in fact). Skip breakfast, which means going 16 hours…"

"Craig, I had a seizure while driving several years ago and fortunately came out of it without hitting anyone or thing. It scared the daylights out of me. I spent two years not being able to drive. Turned out my heart was beating irregularly, and had…"

"What's going on here? Nobody is commenting. Sitting around the house is adding to my girth. I've gained about 5 lbs. despite walking 6-7 miles a day (in my basement) and doing "high intensity" exercises (see Dr. Mercola). Too…"

"Spud: Super!! Whatever you're doing must be working for you. Not that I need to lose weight, but I occassionally fast. It's mostly to get rid of a little extra mid-section and to combat my sugar "addiction". I think by not eating…"

"Randall, from what I've heard, many small meals are better than a few large ones.  Personally, I can definitely tell my body does not like large meals.  It responds with acid reflux, sleeping problems, and abdominal pain.   It…"

"Randall, "Intermittent fasting" may have benefits similar to caloric restriction without making people super-hungry or super-thin. But there is also lots of research supporting the benefit of eating your breakfast, etc.  What those…"

"Is fasting a good or bad thing? What's the latest on eating 6 small meals a day vs. 2 decent ones--skipping breakfast althogether?"

"I seem to be hungry all the time! If I don't something to keep me occupied during the day, that's all I'd do--and gain 100 lbs! It's the evening that gives me the most trouble, even after a big meal. I forget the brain chemical…"

Luara commented on Nerdlass's group Diet and Exercise Support Group
"One way to lose weight is to only eat when you're physically hungry.  If you just crave something to eat, you can eat something bulky with almost no calories, like a head of lettuce.  I find those packs of romaine hearts work well as…"

Your Karma Ran Over My Dogma

Posted on January 8, 2012 at 12:00am 3 Comments

An interesting thing occurred after I returned to the Land of the Rising Sun. I had been in Tokyo a couple of days, and jet lag had seemed not to be too much of an issue, thanks to napping at the appropriate times. However, after running about Harajuku with a friend of mine and visiting Oedo Onsen afterwards, I was a content and drowsy foreigner. We each paid the fee for all the wonderfulness that was the Old-fashioned Edo village inside the bathhouse, on the way out. We tossed on our shoes and… Continue

Of Extinct Fauna and ESL

Posted on September 27, 2011 at 3:00am 2 Comments

I enjoy teaching English to my classes, here in Japan. I've been working on getting a project ready for one year of students which I hope they'll enjoy and learn from.



They're reading a story about the Kakapo, a flightless parrot-like bird in New Zealand. The Kakapo is an endangered species that people are working hard to save. After reading the passage, I thought it'd be a great idea to reenforce their new vocabulary, by taking a look at some extinct animals from the Quaternary… Continue

O, hai!  Welcome to Cat-land!  Pull up a cushion, curl up, have a pinch of 'nip. My Pumpkin cat wants to get in my lap and welcome you, too, but he's a dreadful typist, so I'll just greet you for him.  I don't know where Jerry-cat is; they were growling at each other a few minutes ago.  Poor Jerry is afraid of everything.  I adopted both of them just a few months ago, and they're still adjusting.

Meowy Catober!
