Republicans Hate Blacks Because God Hates Blacks

A Racist God Slaughters Blacks

"And there came out against them Zerah the Ethiopian with an host of a thousand thousand, and three hundred chariots..." (II Chronicles 14:9)

So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled. (II Chronicles 14:12)

Comment

It appears that Black Christian Bible studies programs ignore these verses, for it says that the Lord God slaughtered over a million blacks.

The association of black with evil goes far back in Western Christian culture. The early Church fathers, Origen, Jerome, and Augustine of Hippo wrote about devils appearing as Ethiopians.

White racist groups (such as the Ku Klux Klan who think of themselves as opposite of black devils) see these Biblical verses as evidence to justify their beliefs. We still hear phrases such as "Prince of Darkness" or "Black magic" which link blackness with sin.

In the story of Ham and Japheth, the word "ham" has connotations of "hot" and "dark" in Semitic languages. To the ancient Israelites, as well as some modern Jews and Christians, the "children of Ham" had dark skin and lived in eastern Africa. Thus they see the "Curse of Ham" as a link with black skin and sexual license.

Republicans Lie More Than Democrats... A LOT MORE!

What A Shocker: New Study Concludes That Republicans Lie Much More Than Democrats

May 28, 2013
By

A new study from the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University concludes that Republicans are the ‘less credible party.’ And we never suspected a thing (wink wink). Michele Bachmann is one of the worst offenders.



Salon reports:

100 statements evaluated by the fact-checking website PolitiFact between Obama’s second inauguration and this month, the researchers found that claims from Republican officials were labeled as “false” or “pants on fire” by a 3-to-1 margin, compared to claims from Democratic officials. Conversely, half as many Republican claims were labeled “entirely true.”

“While Republicans see a credibility gap in the Obama administration, PolitiFact rates Republicans as the less credible party,” said CMPA president  Robert Lichter in a press release. An earlier study from the CMPA found the website rated the Romney campaign worse than the Obama campaign during the 2012 election. Not surprisingly, Michele Bachmann is one of the most poorly rated politicians on PolitiFact.
The study states, “A majority of Democratic statements (54%) were rated as mostly or entirely true, compared to only 18% of Republican statements. Conversely, a majority of Republican statements (52%) were rated as mostly or entirely false, compared to only 24% of Democratic statements.”
Of course, Republicans will claim the study is ‘skewed’ and will  not dictate their campaigns on fact-checkers, such as the Romney campaign said.  Either way, Democrats are winning, while Michele Bachmann gives fact-checkers migraines every time she opens her mouth.
During the Presidential debate, Mitt Romney used what was titled as PolitiFact’s ‘lie of the year’ and propagated it further.

Paul Ryan did the same thing while debating Joe Biden.

The statement adds, “This study’s findings are similar to those of a previous CMPA study, which found that PolitiFact gave more negative ratings to the Romney campaign than the Obama campaign during the 2012 presidential election campaign.”
Bu…but Benghazi!:

“Despite controversies over Obama administration statements regarding Benghazi, the IRS and the Associated Press, Republicans have continued to fare worse than Democrats, with 60% of their claims rated as false so far this month (May 1 – May 22), compared to 29% of Democratic statements – a 2 to 1 margin.”

Medical Billing Fraud

Medical Billing Fraud is Rampant

Blue Cross Blue Shield estimates that 1/3 of every dollar Americans spend on health care services goes to cover waste and fraud. That's more than we spend on national defense and we spent nearly 600 billion on our defense.  Much of this fraud is billing fraud and chances are your own doctor is one of the thieves.

Understanding Healthcare Fraud

Patients and their medical insurance information can be exploited in various ways that result in increased costs and decreased confidence in the healthcare system. As part of our efforts to improve and protect the healthcare system, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield National Anti-Fraud Department is undertaking a nationwide campaign to share how physicians, healthcare providers and customers can help with healthcare fraud detection and prevention.

Protect Yourself  

We encourage you to follow these general guidelines to safeguard yourself from preventable medical errors and improve the quality of care you receive.
  1. After care, review your statement to verify accuracy. Learn how to read your Explanation of Benefits.
  2. Ask your doctor to explain the reason for services
  3. Report any discrepancies to your health insurance plan or payer
  4. Beware of "free" medical services, as illicit entities use this lure to obtain information
  5. Safeguard your insurance card the same as you would your credit card
  6. Report instances where co-payments or deductibles are waived
  7. Don’t give your insurance number to marketers or solicitors
  8. Never sign a blank insurance form

 

The Costs of Health Care Fraud

Healthcare expenditures topped $2 trillion in 2008 and are expected to exceed $3 trillion by 2014. The most conservative estimate of the amount of healthcare expenditures lost to fraud is three percent, which equates to over $70 billion annually.

That amount costs the average family of four over $200 a year above what they would pay for the honest delivery of healthcare goods and services. Losses attributed to wasteful spending, including fraud and abuse, may be as high as 30%.

 

Report Fraud

If you suspect that healthcare dollars are being paid improperly or as a result of false or misleading information provided to a Blue Cross and Blue Shield company, notify your local Blue Cross and Blue Shield company.Our Partners

U.S. Defense Spending vs. Global Defense Spending

April 24, 2013

In 2012, the most recent year for which complete data is available, the U.S. approved $645.7 billion in defense budget authority (fiscal year 2013 dollars). This figure includes funding for the Pentagon base budget, Department of Energy-administered nuclear weapons activities, and the war in Afghanistan.

This number is six times more than China, 11 times more than Russia, 27 times more than Iran and 33 times more than Israel. Though China is often cited as the country’s next great military adversary, U.S. military spending currently doubles that of all of the countries in Asia combined. In 2012, the U.S. consumed 41 percent of total global military spending. The U.S. also remained in the top 10 highest spending countries as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), one widespread measure of military spending, trailing behind countries such as Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, all of which have a significantly lower total military expenditure as well as a lower total GDP.I

IU.S. figure includes funding for the Pentagon base budget, Department of Energy-administered nuclear weapons activities, and the war in Afghanistan. Data from Congressional Research Service, Office of Management and Budget, and International Institute for Strategic Studies.
IIUnfortunately, there is no such thing as an agreed-upon international definition for “defense expenditure.” Many countries count spending differently and, in some cases, transparency is an issue.
The analysis above uses data from The Military Balance 2013, the authoritative reference almanac produced annually by the International Institute for Strategic Studies. Defense spending estimates for China and Russia, both of which regularly underreport their annual military budgets, have been reported using a methodology known as Purchasing Power Parity (PPP). The Military Balance typically uses market exchange rates to convert countries’ defense spending figures into U.S. dollars. In the case of China and Russia, however, the market exchange rates fail to fully reflect the purchasing power of the yuan and the ruble, respectively. To compensate for this, The Military Balance 2013 uses PPP. This allows for a more balanced calculation of the numbers. All of the figures for China and Russia in the analysis above use PPP figures, which are significantly higher than both officially reported and market exchange rate figures.
The bottom line is that this analysis uses the highest possible defense spending estimates for China and Russia.

**The U.S. State Department estimates North Korean military spending at as much as a quarter of Gross National Product (GNP), with up to 20% of men ages 17-54 in the regular armed forces. Any publicly available estimates on DPRK defense spending are unreliable.

Dirt On Obama's Cousin Milton Wolf

This title should illicit the usual Pavlovian response from the Republicans with Obama Derangement Syndrome. Looks like another slimy/Republican doctor is running for Senate. The Senate is full of Republican doctor slime. I guess they feel that can get more in bribes and kickbacks as a US senator than as a doctor taking bribes from the drug companies and billing fraud.

This guy maybe even slimier than Tom Coburn and Rand Paul. Of the 19 doctors in the congress and senate all but two are Repthuglicans. http://www.patientsactionnetwork.com/physicians-of-the-113th-congress/

Milton Wolf may be one of the biggest Republican psychopathic doctors to every run for public office. Let's hope he gets cancer.


[​IMG]
Milton Wolf in 2013 (John Hanna/AP) https://news.yahoo.com/milton-wolf-x-ray-images-facebook-obama-205752344.html

Dr. Milton Wolf, a U.S. Republican Senate candidate from Kansas, is under fire for posting to his Facebook page a collection of grisly "X-ray images of gunshot fatalities and medical injuries" he acquired as a radiologist and making "macabre jokes" about them online, the Topeka Capital Journal reports.

Wolf, a tea party activist and distant cousin to President Barack Obama,
declined "to clearly answer questions about whether he continued to place images of deceased people on the Internet," and walked out of an interview with the newspaper.

“Do you still post images of dead people on the Internet?” a reporter for the paper asked Wolf.

"I'm not going to play these kinds of gotcha games," he responded before walking away.

Wolf, who is challenging three-term Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts in the GOP primary, had told the paper the images were "legally uploaded to public social media sites and other online venues for educational purposes" and used "to demonstrate evil lurking in the world."

But medical professionals told the paper the postings raise serious privacy issues.

"The dignity and privacy of the individual should be protected,” John Carney, president of the Center for Practical Bioethics in Kansas City, Mo., said. “It doesn't sound like they're being protected if they're, obviously, on Facebook.”

A spokesman for Roberts' campaign called for an investigation into Wolf's actions.

“For any doctor to make patient records public and then use the records for public discussion and entertainment is just unthinkable,” Leroy Towns, Roberts' spokesman, said. “Allegations of such lack of judgment demand extensive scrutiny and investigation.”

On Saturday, Wolf released a lengthy statement addressing the images and accusing Roberts of "character assassination":

My training as a diagnostic radiologist included the critical component of studying medical images published both in textbooks and online. I have myself authored and published educational material that teaches medical imaging to medical students and doctors. Of the thousands of medical images I have published I have taken care to maintain patient privacy.

Several years ago I made some comments about these images that were insensitive to the seriousness of what the images revealed. Soon thereafter, I removed those images and comments, again several years ago. For them to be published in a much more public context now, by a political adversary who would rather declare war on doctors than answer serious questions that Kansans have, is truly sad. However, my mistakes are my own and I take full responsibility for them.

I have said throughout this campaign and long before it began that I bear the scars of taking the Oath to my patients. When I was 15 years old, I stood at my father's bedside, himself a rural doctor, and watched him take his last breath. It was at that moment that I knew I would take his torch and dedicate my life to serving patients in need. I'm reminded just how extraordinarily difficult the burden is when I have failed to live up to his example.

It is an incredible honor and an enormous burden to work shoulder-to-shoulder with dedicated people who every day run towards the screaming instead of away. The cumulative effect of day after day, year after year, witnessing so much human suffering, so much tragedy, takes its toll. I've seen the burdens of practicing medicine tear apart families and drive good people to vice and as great as the honor is to serve, I would still not wish the burdens of it upon anyone. To those I have offended, I am truly sorry and I ask for your forgiveness.

And now, years later, because I have declared that I am willing to stand up for my country, Senator Pat Roberts wants to attack me as a doctor rather than giving Kansans a reason to vote for him. It's sad. Pat Roberts has not been able to identify a single issue on which he thinks I am wrong and so he's doing things the Washington way: character assassination. Kansans should know that I will not be intimidated by their bullying. I did not back down when Barack Obama's IRS audited me and I will not back down from the desperate attacks of a 47-year Washington insider either.

Wolf, author of a book entitled "First, Do No Harm: The President's Cousin Explains Why His Hippocratic Oath Requires Him to Oppose ObamaCare," has been outspoken in his views about his distant relative.

"If I had a cousin who intercepts every phone call in America but won't take a phone call from the Navy Seals in their hour of need, he'd look like Barack," Wolf said last year. "If I had a cousin that doesn't trust law-abiding Americans to arm themselves and yet arms the Muslim Brotherhood with fighter jets and Mexican drug lords with fast and furious guns, he'd look like Barack."

Through the Thigh Gap



 Let's face it, skinny chicks are HOT, smoking HOT but recently there is more hatred and dishonesty coming from jealous fat girls regarding the thigh gap. Thigh gaps are good for many reasons.

Image result for thighs gap

1. Don't let the fat girls fool you. ANY female can have a thigh gap in spite of her pelvic girdle and every woman SHOULD aspire to attain and maintain a thigh gap.


2. While the pelvis has something to do with the size of the thigh gap a wider pelvis denotes intelligence. Women with wider pelvises can give birth to babies with larger brains and cranial vaults.

Why you SHOULD have a thigh gap!

3. Regardless of the type of pelvis any man woman can have a thigh gap. In fact, not having a thigh gap can cause the thighs to splay causing hip dysplasia. Thunder thighs cause hip dysplasia.

Inner Thigh Blubber Causes Hip Dysplasia and Yeast Infections!



Thunder thighs lead to hip replacement surgery!

4. Thunder thighs can cause yeast infections. Thunder thighs trap heat and moisture and heat and moisture is the friend of yeast. Fat girls have chronic yeast infections in part due to the types of foods they eat. Chronic yeast causes cancer!

HOW TO GET A THIGH GAP!



5. Thigh gaps are hot and thunder thighs are not. Actually thunder thighs are hot, sticky and odorous. They gaps provide vaginal ventilation and a ventilated crotch means a healthy smelling vagina.

ANY WOMAN CAN AND SHOULD HAVE A THIGH GAP!







Nothing goes better with a thigh gap than a camel toe.

Once again, I expose the lie that pelvic structure determines thigh gaps is BS. Males have narrow pelvic girdles and slender men have thigh gaps.


As you can see slender males have thigh gaps and male thigh gaps lead to healthier testicles.

How to Get a Thigh Gap.
The Six Types Of Gaps
These 6 types of gaps are not absolute because each woman’s body is unique and there are some variations but they are a very good reference point when it comes to categorizing the varieties of gaps.
1.The Wide Gap is a sweet sight indeed and is a little rarer than the other 5 types. It is of course wide, but it is also short and doesn’t extend far down the thighs. If you are a fan of the gap this one will drive you crazy when you see it.
2. The Heart Gap is similar to the Wide Gap except it is smaller in size and resembles a heart shape. Some Wide Gaps become Heart Gaps after she gains some weight in the thighs. This type of gap is often paired with a very nice ass.
3. The Mini Gap is smaller then the Heart Gap and is usually the shape of an upside down triangle. If you see a gap on a thick girl this is usually the type of gap it is.
4. The Sliver Gap is basically a Heart or Mini Gap that has a thin extension of space that goes down further between the thighs. Sometimes the thighs actually touch closing the thin space off and open it up again a little further down.
5. The Missile Gap is basically a Wide or Heart Gap with a wider extension of space between the thighs that comes together at the knees giving it the characteristic beautiful missile shape.
6. The Complete Gap extends from the poon tang all the way down to where the feet come together at the ankles without the legs touching. This type of gap is usually seen on thin women but can also be seen on other body types. This type of gap is kind of rare and is always a treat to see.

Johnson and Johnson Killing Children Worldwide

If only they were killing puppies people would give a shit and the lame stream media would report it. Lucky for canines J&J does not make animal product but they do make many medical products for kids.

This past April, a Johnson & Johnson recall of more than 40 brands and 130 million bottles of children's over-the-counter medications left worried parents here in Colorado and across the country scrambling to empty their medicine cabinets of the potentially harmful products. In this downward trend in patient safety, last year saw more than 1,700 drug recalls - four times more than in 2008 - that were mostly tied to manufacturing quality.

Why are Americans more at risk now?

A Pew Prescription Project poll released Aug. 3, 2010, shows that most Americans are concerned about drug safety, particularly the safety of drugs manufactured overseas, and support increased regulation. Seventy percent of respondents have little or no confidence that drugs manufactured in China are free from contamination and safe for Americans; 54 percent of respondents expressed the same concern about drugs manufactured in India. Ninety-four percent of Americans favor giving the FDA recall authority for drugs, which it currently lacks. Currently, almost all drug recalls are voluntary."

Ninety-four percent of Americans favor giving the FDA recall authority for drugs, which it currently lacks. Currently, almost all drug recalls are voluntary."

This past April, a Johnson & Johnson recall of more than 40 brands and 130 million bottles of children's over-the-counter medications left worried parents here in Colorado and across the country scrambling to empty their medicine cabinets of the potentially harmful products. In this downward trend in patient safety, last year saw more than 1,700 drug recalls - four times more than in 2008 - that were mostly tied to manufacturing quality.
Why are Americans more at risk now?

When to Fire Your Doctor

It goes without saying, American doctors are the worst in the industrialized world. Despite the fact that the highest paid doctors in the world are Americans, American doctors are the 3rd leading cause of preventable death. These arrogant and overpaid crybabies don't have to be polite of competent because there is a doctor shortage in the US. The following US News and World Report article discusses what to do about these bums.

Getting Rid of Your Stumble Bum Doctor

Staying with a doctor you're not happy with is as harmful as staying in a relationship you know is bad because it's easier than making a change. But parting ways may be the healthiest move. Here are 9 signs that it's time to fire your doctor. (For simplicity, the references below are to male doctors, but men don't have a monopoly on unacceptable behavior.)

1. You don't mesh. You and your doctor don't need to see eye to eye on everything, but it's helpful if you work well together. If you want a partnership, for example, a doctor who spouts commands is not the best fit. If you value warmth, you may not be able to build an effective relationship with a physician who seems formal or distant. "Some patients like doctors who are very direct and blunt," says Washington, D.C.-based family physician Kenny Lin, who blogs for U.S. News. "And some patients can't stand that type of doctor because they think he or she isn't empathetic enough or doesn't provide enough options." When there's a mismatch, neither person is at fault—but it could be grounds for termination.

2. He doesn't respect your time. Do you routinely wait an hour to see your physician only to feel like he's speed-doctoring through the visit? You should never feel like you're being rushed. If your doctor doesn't take the time to answer your questions or address your concerns, there's a problem. The medical community is becoming increasingly sensitive to patients' precious time. When they're late for an appointment, some habitually tardy doctors have even begun compensating patients with money or gifts. If your doctor's chronic lateness makes you grind your teeth, why stay with him? Hint: If you're evaluating a prospective physician, investigate his timeliness beforehand. This map showcases doctors who are conscious of the clock and live up to the standards of the Ideal Medical Practices Organization, a nonprofit that encourages doctors to be on time.

3. He keeps you in the dark. A doctor should be open and thorough about why he recommends a certain treatment or orders a specific test, and he should share all results with you. "If a doctor doesn't explain himself, or at least not to your satisfaction, at that point a doctor is bad," Lin says. "I know doctors who have drawn blood or run a bunch of tests without telling patients why they're doing them and what they mean." It's also important that a doctor uses terms you understand, rather than complicated medical jargon; otherwise, explanations are meaningless. Your health is too important to feel confused or uninformed.
[Decoding Doctor-Speak: Translations of Common Medical Terms]

4. He doesn't listen. Does your doctor hear you out without interrupting? "It all comes down to communication and whether you feel like you're asking questions and they're not being answered," says Carolyn Clancy, director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. She recalls visiting a doctor for a second opinion on whether she should go through with a procedure recommended by her dentist. "He made a big leap—that I didn't want to have it done because I was afraid of the pain—and kept reassuring me that it was virtually pain-free. That's not what I was asking. After three rounds, I concluded that we weren't going to get to a productive place, and I didn't go back."
[3 Ways to Get Your Doctor to Take Your Pain Seriously]

5. The office staff is unprofessional. The receptionists are the link between you and the doctor. If they blow you off—or neglect to give your message to the physician, say about side effects of a new medication—your health could be at risk. Even if you like your doctor, a bad office staff could signal it's time to look elsewhere.

6. You don't feel comfortable with him, or wonder about his competence. Doctors need to know intimate details you may not even share with friends or family members. If you're unable to disclose such facts, you and your doctor may not be the right match. A sense of unease about his decisions and recommendations, even if you can't say exactly why, is also a perfectly legitimate reason for cutting the cord, says Don Powell, president of the American Institute for Preventive Medicine, a nonprofit that promotes healthy behavior through wellness programs and publications. Beware of sloppy medical mistakes, too: If your doctor prescribes a medication to which you're allergic, and you know that information is in your history, a separation may be in order.

7. He doesn't coordinate with other doctors. Your primary care physician should be the quarterback of your healthcare team, managing each step of the medical process. That means keeping track of specialists' reports and instructions and talking with you about their recommendations. If he's slacking, an important piece of your care could slip through the cracks.
[Your Primary Care Team Will See You Now]

8. He's unreachable. A good doctor is available for follow-up questions and concerns. Patient advocate Trisha Torrey, author of You Bet Your Life! The 10 Mistakes Every Patient Makes, recalls the time her husband developed severe tooth pain on a weekend. His dentist's voicemail included a cell phone number and a promise of a quick response, but he never heard back. An emergency clinic visit and root canal later, he told his dentist she was fired. A growing number of doctors are making themselves available to patients via E-mail, text message, and Skype, and at the very least, you need to know that in an emergency, you won't be left hanging.
[Doctor-Patient E-Mails Are a Healthy Addition, Research Shows]

9. He's rude or condescending. Time to part ways. Same goes if he trivializes your concerns as though they're not valid. One of the clearest signs you should move on is if he walks out of the room while you're still talking, says Clancy. That's what happened when her sister met with a surgeon to determine if her daughter should go through with a procedure. "When my sister finished asking her question, the doctor was gone," Clancy recalls. "She called me afterward and I told her, 'You have to find someone else. You'll regret it if you don't.' "

A Fool Proof Diet

 
Sorry for the poor quality
A few nites ago I Fat Bastardo lost a bet with CG Brady. The bet was that I Fat Bastardo could not drink a gallon of milk faster than CG could drink 2 gallons of water. I took the bet. It sounded like a sure win. We watched each other on a web cams. In less than 2 minutes CG had chugged the first gallon of water. As I began to guzzle the milk after about a 1/2 a gallon I puked it all up and almost fucked up my computer. I was humiliated. As my part of the bet I have allow CG to post a diet article. 



A Diet Plan That Works by CG Brady

75% of Americans are overweight or obese and in spite of all the diet book and diet aids available that number has not gone down. Clearly the medical and diet industry have dropped the ball when it comes to solving the riddle of the obesity epidemic. Is it in the best financial interest of the medical industry to reduce obesity among Americans? Of course not. It is in the medical industry's best financial interest to actually make and keep people fat because with obesity comes hundreds of dollars in revenue from the many obesity related maladies.

Here's how to lose weight and keep it off.

If you go to your doctor he may give you Medifast or send your for weight loss surgery. Both of these are bad options. Medifast is diet plan with crappy pre packaged food and shakes that total between 800 -1200 calories per day. A really obese person will lose weight rapidly on this sort starvation diet. During the starvation they burn all the glycogen (the storage form of glucose) in their liver and soon most of their life sustaining calories come from ketones in stored body fat. Body cells with  function best on glucose but can survive on ketones. Brain and nerve cells require glucose. Ketogenic diets like Atkins and South Beach don't work and they are dangerous. Robert Atkins MD died obese of a heart attack and Arthur Agatston MD admits to taking statin drugs and he's also over weight. Why am I telling you this? I am telling you this to let you know that most MD are clueless when it come to weight loss so don't listen to them.

The best way to lose weight is to keep your caloric intake at your basal metabolic rate. To find your approximate BMR multiply your weight X 10. That will get you in the ballpark.

The safe way to lose weight and not damage your body and brain is to lose no more than 1 pound per 100 pounds of body weight per week. For example; If you weigh 300 pounds lose no more than 3 pounds per week.

A farmer would not feed his livestock the slop most American eat because it is just so unhealthy.

The 15% of people who lose weight and keep in off do it for altruistic reasons. People are more motivated when the do it for a loved one.

The more often you eat the less likely you will feel hungry.

Create 6 meals per day that total your BMR. You will be eating ever couple of hours so you won't have time to feel hungry. If you do feel some hunger pangs drink water or suck it.

These meals have to be healthy and wholesome. They need to include .5 grams of protein per pound of your body weight. Protein is the only safe appetite suppressant. 65% of the calories need to come from plant based carbohydrates and the remaining can from healthy fats; learn what they are.

You probably don't know that Protein has 4 calories per gram. Carbs have 4 calories per gram, Alcohol has 6 calories per gram. Fat has 9 calories per gram.  If you didn't know this perhaps you are not serious enough about your health and your personal and social responsibilities???? Your doctor never took the time to tell you this because he doesn't know nor does he care to know and keeping you fat means more money for him. I know that sounds harsh but its most often the case.

Sir Isaac Newton
As you body weight decreased so will your BMR. That's normal and desirable. The diet industry hype about boosting hype about "boosting" your metabolism is mostly BS.  Exercise will raise you metabolic rate but there really is no pill that will safely or significantly raise your BMR. The truth is the metabolic rates of individuals of the same age, weight and gender vary by 35 calories a day. If you argue with Sir Issac Newton you lose.

Think of all the reasons for why you can't eat healthy meals everyday that total your BMR. The truth is the are no reasons at least not any valid ones. Knowing now that there is no reason for why you can't do this, if you don't do this it is because you won't.
