Re: Damnit

I like the fact that one can express their opinion here without being moderated to death. VeganForum and VeganFitness both restrict a great deal of free speech based upon the owners bias.

If you don't like a thread, you don't need to join in or read it. Simple as that.

Re: A look at Epigenetic qualities. Post Yours.

Ryan, You always seem to resort to Ad Hominem when someone doesn't agree with you. Try arguing facts. "Most endomorphs tend to be inactive and even lazy." http://www.oaklandcolleges.net/lose-the-fat/how-can-endomorphs-lose-fat-the-endomorph-diet-and-endomorph-training "Specifically, m...

Re: A look at Epigenetic qualities. Post Yours.

Ryan, I did not make the image I posted, I pulled it from the internet. Yes, I used it because it shows the derogatory aspect of these classifications. You are showing one that shows a more respectful version which is validating your reasoning. Everything you just said to me I could flip around onto...

Re: Eating until I'll explode... need advice

I also want to add that muscle doesn't mean much if you can't use it. When I was heavy, I could never do one pull-up. Now I can do maybe 10 or 12. So, even though I have less total muscle mass, the muscle I do have is much more useful.

Re: A look at Epigenetic qualities. Post Yours.

I can be a pretty tolerant person but... Ducati you have hi-jacked my thread. You have done it by speaking for ectomorphs and endmorphs. Now you are speaking for women as well. If I was an endomorph I would be very offended that you find things that could describe me as degrading. Considering small...

Re: Eating until I'll explode... need advice

@Ducati Would you give me some examples?? Most of what I have seen in the before after pics was just losing fat and muscle, one guy even thought he gained muscle but just add fat... I saw your pics and I don't want to minimize your achievement but you just lost much fat AND muscle for sure, I could...

Re: Eating until I'll explode... need advice

A lot of guys on this board build plenty of muscle on 20% or less protein. And you obviously are not trying to bulk up if you are eating 1,800 Cals a day, so you don't need any extra protein. I can easily maintain my muscle mass on 5%-6% protein which is about the minimum you would get eating just f...

Re: A look at Epigenetic qualities. Post Yours.

I'm Your Man, I agree that happiness and confidence come from within, but in this society, one is taught to be ashamed of their body type unless it fits a certain category. This is especially true of young women. You occasionally see overweight men in leading roles in movies and tv, but rarely overw...

Re: A look at Epigenetic qualities. Post Yours.

Ducati, Choosing an overly-simplified cartoon to show the common classifications is NOT what this discussion was about - doing a pick-and-choose to find what *you* personally WANT to be offended by has little to do with the classifications and their purpose. Epi-Gen made a very good point with this...

This is not derogatory?

Ryan,

Why is it ok to classify someone based on body type, but not on their choice of profession?

Re: A look at Epigenetic qualities. Post Yours.

If you are overweight then there is little sense in denying it but no one wants to be called "fatso" or anything like that. Instead of alienating the person you can treat them normally and encourage them when they want to change. That is exactly what you are doing. You are trying to apply...
