I'm Samantha from New Zealand

My main ambition in life is to join the medical world.
I want to be a doctor, have wanted to since the ripe age of 5. So you could pretty much say it's my life.

I left FS, Now I'm back. Fat. But not for long.

According to my BMI, I need to be between 51.8kg(114lbs) and 70kg(154lbs) to be of normal weight. That's what I'm aiming for.

Happy to have buddies with similar goals and interests or not

over exercising?
So is it true?

Can I "harm" myself by working out too much? I honestly think it's all lies, what does everyone else think?

I've been working out 3 hours a day for the last week.

My workouts consist of

20 minutes treadmill
20 minutes crosstraining
20 minutes cycle

I do this 3 times a day

am I really hurting myself? The personal trainers at my gym don't seem to mind my frequent daily visits lol

Why you should never call a woman fat
I'm more pissed if I get called dumb. Fat? ah well..

Most can lose weight, intelligence is different

I'd rather be fat for the rest of my life with a brain than a skinny dumb woman.

Ambition is too strong.

Besides a fat smart woman can buy her way to thin (surgery).

Ever seen or heard a dumb woman buy a brain? Laughing

Thinking of switching diets... what's ur recommendation?
Ketosis is Ketosis. No matter how you try to candy coat it.

Fat is not the BEST source of fuel for the brain at all. Glucose is.
Fat contains other toxic elements.

I'm sorry but a wikipedia link is no source of fact what-so-ever. Anyone can write on there.

I also like how you repeat the same facts. There is a difference between knowing facts and actually understanding the concepts behind them.

I know exactly what ketones are and their effects on the brain and all the other useless information you're trying to force upon me.

If I wanted a biology lesson I wouldn't come on here for one, seriously.

However, bending facts to suit you isn't ideal. Nor did you explain how such process AREN'T damaging the liver.

Spouting useless facts that don't exactly 'add up' doesn't really fool me

Thinking of switching diets... what's ur recommendation?
Sorry, but how does strictly reducing sugars and carbs and insulin have to do with anything?

Regardless, insulin will be released regardless of WHAT you eat. Insulin is a response to GLUCOSE and GLUCOSE is what your brain needs to function it's its main source of fuel.

So starving of the brain is the answer?

Ketosis as a physiological state associated with chronic starvation.

Hence, why when you are anorexic they check you ketone levels, not only that but you can smell ketones in a persons breath when they haven't been eating enough and frankly it's gross.

Ketosis is regarded as a crisis reaction of the body due to a lack of carbohydrates in the diet. It a dangerous and potentially life-threatening state that stresses the liver and causes destruction of muscle tissues.

So brain and liver destruction is the answer?

So I'm not sure what you're saying it EXACTLY true.

Apart from the part about constant medical attention.

Maybe when I want to kill myself this sounds like a FANTASTIC idea.
