Artificial sweeteners cause an insulin response/blood sugar spike in many people.

I believe there's been studies on this re: sucralose (Splenda).  Not sure about other sweeteners, but it seems to happen early in the digestive process - ie; the receptors on/in the tongue, so I would think it would happen across the board.

Well I'm SOOOOOO sorry I'm not perfect like you.  Angry

Youíve come to the wrong place if you think youíre going to get a pat on the back for making poor choices.  That is not Getbigís style anymore than if I said I used to smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day, but Iíve cut that in half.  Kudos for me.  Ainít gonna happen.

You need to lose 100 pounds.  You want to look like a bikini model, but you donít want to exercise.  You donít want to lift weights.  You donít want to change your diet.  You donít want to drink water.  80% of the battle of the bulge is diet so unless youíre willing to make some drastic changes in that arena, your ďdreamĒ will always be just that.

What are the thoughts on diet sodas?

I drink these most days with my meals and feel that the carbonated nature of the drinks despite containing no sugar/calories makes me feel bloated.

Should I cut them out altogether?

Dang, too late. This seems an interesting report, https://www.consumerlab.com/reviews/Greens_Whole_Foods_Powders_Supplements/greens/ since it's pretty hard to find good/objective reviews on superfood powders.
Have you read the report about this, Princess?

I did a quick PDF save.  Happy to share.  How?

You should never spend less than $3000 dollars if you can afford it. If you can't afford it you should save up. You can have rings resized from bigger to smaller but I don't know about smaller to bigger.

It takes about 30 seconds to make a ring larger and it's a simple fix.  Making it smaller is much more involved.  Best to start out a little too small if unsure.

Did any of you guys see the captain phillips movie its one of the best movie i have seen for 2013, dam good acting from tom hanks.

Yes.  It was very intense.  The scene at the end with him and the air corpsman (female) was incredible.  I can't believe he didn't even get a nomination (Academy) for that role.

People keep telling me how bad it is but I'm not sure why if you only have a little. I used to drink a 6 pack each day and I have cut that right in half. But people are telling me even that is too much. I know the sugar is not good but I thought a little bit would not hurt me! If it is really that bad I will stop it. Cry I think I amy try the switch to diet but I dont'like the taste much.

You can't be serious  Roll Eyes "a little"  That's at least 120 grams of sugar and empty calories.  A total waste.

If it's a common model, Zappos and Amazon are my go - to's.

X2
Zappos great shipping and return policy, but that's in the US.

113  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: United Airlines sucks !!! on: February 16, 2014, 12:21:08 PM



I used to be a frequent flyer and I can tell you from experience that ALL airlines suck!

Flying is pure torture. 

Just be happy you don't have to fly all the time.




Yea, they all pretty much suck these days.  Midwest Express used to be the "best care in the air".  They were awesome.  2 across leather seating, real food served on real china, wine, warm chocolate chip cookies.  All complimentary and not really any more $$$ than others.  But alas  Cry they're gone.  Bastards sold out and merged with Frontier.  Southwest isn't too bad.  At least they don't gouge you on bag fees.

Someone is asking to be bullied.


For the people who think this is great: Yay, a kid at 4 is already perfectly programmed to respond to stimuli specifically designed to elicit emotions. Change the tune and he's sitting up and begging, or rolling over and playing dead when he could be trying to achieve something.

116  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Water Intake on: February 14, 2014, 04:29:55 PM
But what is left for me to drink? I hate water and I donnt like the taste of diet sodas.

"Clean" water has no taste, so maybe the water you're drinking has a lot of iron or some other off tasting mineral.  There are lots of sparkling waters out there.  Find one you like.  I recently discovered some at Aldi for .59 that are pretty good.  Also, there are dozens of pixie stick options out there.
117  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Aldi Rocks! on: February 11, 2014, 08:04:12 PM
manchego is awesome.  Not biased although my parents are from Spain and this is our cheese lol.  That is a great price and I bought some at Christmas.  It was good.

What do you do with your Manchego?  I usually just have it as part of a fruit and cheese plate and pick off little nibbles with wine or grate it in place of Parmesan into recipes.
118  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / How long does that food last? on: February 11, 2014, 02:46:04 PM
Dairy, grains, meats, fruits, veggies, and misc food items...some of them have sell by, best by, use by dates. But, if it still tastes or smells good....Unsure how long that food  will last?

You may be surprised to find that you've been throwing away hundreds dollars worth of food a year because you think an expiration date means the food is no longer good. Here are a few reference resources.

Special buy this week.  $1.99 The Thai chili sauce is awesome.



This recipe is ALWAYS a hit!!



http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/peanut-chicken-skewers-with-chili-mayonnaise-recipe-00000000024595/index.html

For the dipping sauce, I use the Greek yogurt with some of that Thai sweet/hot chili sauce mixed in.  People rave about it!

Once in awhile Aldi will have a special buy on dipping sauces.  I just opened a bottle the other day and used it.  It was AWESOME.  Had some great kick to it.

122  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Aldi Rocks! on: February 11, 2014, 01:13:46 PM
$2.99  limited



If you didn't snag a few of these around Christmas, they are/were back for a hot minute a week or so ago.  Your store might have a few left.  Grab 'em while you can, they're awesome.

Same with these
 


Apparently people haven't discovered the Manchego.  Usually $15/lb & up.  They've had 5oz wedges for $3.99 since Christmas on a special buy.  Doesn't seem to be selling ~ a shame cuz they probably won't bring it back  Embarrassed
123  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: New addition on: February 10, 2014, 10:46:59 AM
A high percentage of Dalmatians are. There is a recessive gene that causes deafness that is found on the same allele as the gene for white coloration, IIRC. My pit/lab who was deaf was white. White German Shepherds also have a high proclivity for deafness and are usually barred by color from service.  

I think that goes for white kittens with blue eyes too.

The warewolf, mystic river were my last two. I really liked MYSTIC RIVER.

Fantastic film.  Sean Penn = Great actor

Watched Captain Phillips last week ~ VERY INTENSE.  Tom Hanks = Great actor

Saw American Hustle this week   Undecided really  Huh
There's nothing uniquely American about the hustle or the characters, and there's nothing profound embedded in the film's plot. It's a fun caper with good performances by the whole cast ~ good, not great, not Academy Award-worthy. Overrated.  

Looking forward to seeing Lone Survivor and 12 Years a Slave soon.
