    Flegal: Grade I Obese 5% lower mortality risk. Overall, 25,000 excess deaths (wrongly, I would contend) attributed to obesity, with 33,000 deaths being attributed to being underweight.

    Can we shift to a skinny crisis now ? The current phony crisis is getting old.

    "Relative to normal weight, both obesity (all grades) and grades 2 and 3 obesity were associated with significantly higher all-cause mortality."

    You know mortality means killing people right?

    I'm breaking it down for you. Rather, CDC senior research scientist is breaking the studies down for you. Further:

    *Women over 50 with BMI 34 (upper-range Grade I obese) longest-lived of all.

    *Among non-smokers over 60, obese live longer than normal weight.

    Additionally, I cited the Brazil study which showed Grade I obese living longer than normal weight.

    Moreover, I cited the Statistics Canada study showing Grade I AND Grade II living longer.

    I also cited the Norway Study showing morbidly obese women living longer than normal weight men.

    Add the niggling detail that there is no credible evidence of obesity causing the diseases it is blamed for and therefore no one is actually dying 'from being fat.'

    Now, stop being a hit-and-run artist. You posed a seemingly rhetorical question, on the 'Business Proposition' thread, and I answered it. This is you off-and-running to the next taunt.

    I'm moving to Charlotte in a couple of weeks. Friend of mine up there says that a restaurant there makes the best shakes ever. Says it's basically ice cream, in a cup, and they give you a straw. Says he has no idea why they give you a straw.

    Thanks! Not big on fish tacos but am interested in sampling authentic Carolina BBQ.

    Sure.

    First step is always use almond milk. In addition to being lighter in calories, it's creamier and makes a thicker shake.

    Either stock up on frozen fruits or freeze your own. I almost never use banana, but it's usually a "stock" fruit to make the shakes creamier. That said, it tends to dominate the flavor of most shakes, so I only do it when going for tropical.

    Here's an example favorite:

    8-10 oz of almond milk
    2 scoops of ON vanilla ice cream protein
    1.5 cups of frozen fruit
    some honey and/or 1 packet of splenda
    10-15 almonds

    blend er up for about a minute.

    Comes out to:

    55g protein
    8g fat
    25g carb (mostly sugar)

    I usually put in some fiber as a filler, too. I'll rarely say no to a steak, but there are times when this could compete with just about anything else.

    Almonds seems interesting. Never seen that before.

    A big part of my veggie intake comes from green shakes now, but a green shake is pretty gross unless you have a quality blender (BlendTech or Vitamix).

    Some of my favorites:

    4-6 oz water (or sub in some almond milk)
    Big ole handful of spinach
    about 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
    1/2 naval orange or 1 tangerine
    Vanilla grass-fed whey (optional for a protein kick)
    1 tbs coconut oil or 1/4 avocado (optional for some quality fat)

    I'm w/ OBOB on bananas, but for the recipe above, 1/4 of a frozen banana is not bad at all. I wouldn't do banana and avocado together though. Too much emulsification going on.

    Otherwise, I like to mix spinach with citrus, carrot, and ginger.

    Beets (with the greens included) actually blend up pretty nicely, and they pair nicely with cherries. Add some almond milk and vanilla protein powder and it's a pretty tasty carb bomb.

    Occasionally, I'll make some V-8 type of stuff to get concentrated veggie power.

    Greens - spinach or kale
    carrot
    celery
    tomato
    seaweed
    1 clove of garlic
    small chunk of ginger
    1/2 - 1 habanero

    A few other lessons learned:

    - don't add too many ingredients
    - don't use apples for whole juice (they're just not good blended)
    - don't use anything too seedy or grainy (like pomegranate or raspberry)
    - avoid using cabbage
