Night shift RN who is at a midlife point in career and life...

I was the fat jock. Track and field, wrestling, football in competitive years as a youth in college. Then the typical softball and golf sports in my advancing years. I want to regain some of the energy I have for sports and life since I am involved in my son's sports as a coach.

It is not all about them... I believe that some of the jobs that I did not get were related to my appearance. But to continue my career in public safety I need to get healthier.

Was a traveling RN for 9 years I gained most of my weight during that time Living the good life especially in Hawaii...Too much POI and alcohol! I currently reside in Southern NJ and work as a Critical Care Transport Nurse/Paramedic.

Fox News and HCG Diet
Wow what a thread. This type of diet in my humble opinion cannot be good. Your body runs on fluids, carbs, proteins and electrolytes. 500 calories cannot keep a small child nourished. Speculation about young people's sudden deaths are usually a result of a cardiac arrhythmia that is lethal. This can be caused by severe acidosis, alkalosis, or an electrolyte imbalance. Feed your body!
