    Heard a few segments this AM. One was a discussion with Robin and the guys from 2003 when she had just lost some weight. She claimed she was diagnosed with several conditions that make her body unable to process food properly and she cannot eat BREAD, RAW VEGETABLES, and most FRUITS (all things she now eats) because they're like poison to her system. She said she fasted for 21 days to cleanse those toxins and now only eats once a day and mostly just drinks liquids. Howard tried to tell her that eating too much and not exercising enough was her real problem but she got very defensive and insisted none of it was her fault, it was a medical condition she couldn't control. She's a complete loon, I can't believe anyone would take her advice on dieting (or anything else).

    I listen to a lot of old stern shows.
    Every 5 years Robin is being lauded for losing 50+lbs.
    It is always some extreme rapid weigh loss scam.
    2003 was the master cleanser 80lb weight loss scam ??
    'History of Robins weight lost and found'... would be amazing.....:jj:

    I heard this too, and she also mentioned she had hyper-thyroid disease and achy joints which is a symptom of calcium in the blood which is not a good thing and could be cancer related. Maybe her attitude towards "western medicine" kept her from follow-ups. I'm hardly a doctor but I'm close to someone whos going through this.

    By the way, at 5:00 PM H101 started playing the same episode of TDiHH for the 4th time today. The stellar lineup so far has been:

    TDiHH
    Dr. Fisch (rerun)
    TDiHH (same episode)
    Greg Fitzsimmons (rerun)
    TDiHH (same episode again)
    TDiHH (same episode again back to back)

    Way to go, Tim.

    With that much up and down, it's surprising the Obese Black Woman doesn't have heart problems.

    "Toxins". The surest indicator of a pseudo-nutritional scam.

    She said "hypo" thyroid and that she doesn't take anything for it. If you have that, you have to take medication, changing your diet or lifestyle doesn't change your thyroid condition. She also mentioned having "Inflammatory Syndrome" or "IS" as she called it and mentioned she had been on steroids for a medical condition. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systemic_inflammatory_response_syndrome

    Yep and now she's written a book that claims she got healthy by eating raw fruit and veggies (2 things her body supposedly can't process) and she's admitted to eating a bagel recently (another food she claimed was toxic). No one on that show can keep their stories straight about anything.

    "Juicing" is so stupid. It's all sugar and no fiber - which actually cleans your system so you don't have to go sticking a fucking circus hose up your ass.

    Hypo-thyroid (reduced function) would cause weight loss and joint pain.

    An apple has 4-5 grams of fiber. It's in the peel which gets "juiced" along with the flesh. A mango has about 3, and other fruits and vegetables have it. The kind of sugar in them doesn't have the same effect biologically as processed sugar. It makes eating what many find boring or unpleasant fairly pleasant.

    These diets using "green drink" are basically starvation based. They eat a few hundred calories a day of kale, lettuce, and other greens that have very few calories. The drink isn't the reason they lose weight. It's not eating.

    There have been about as many theories claiming to have the "secret to weight loss" as there are reality TV stars. Many eat grains with no ill effect. Many eat most of their diet in carbs (poor nations) and are not overweight. Many eat tons of fat and aren't overweight. The body is complex and humans are not all identical. Some people respond to certain diet changes, others not as much. But if you stuffed 4,000 calories a day of vegetables and fruits in someone, they wouldn't lose weight unless they were getting too few carbohydrates or fat.

    Thanks. I'm surprised I didn't know that about the apple peels (which I normally do eat). I thought most of the fiber was in the flesh.

    Also, I'm not on the juice fad, but I was under the impression that many juice machines purposely separate the solids (including the ground peels) and that many people discard them?

    She's a disturbed individual and not somebody who should give advice on anything to anybody.

    Trace back obesity on most people and it leads to emotional issues. Very few people have genetic disorders that cause them metabolic dysfunction. She's a mental mess. Nothing to see here, folks.

    I guess she found the only Bagel store in NY that makes Bagels without Bread Flour.
    So that is the reason she had to "stop" during the marathon :clap:
