It seems to be all over the map as far as which types of foods break down easier than others:
https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/the-hidden-truths-about-calories/


Thanks for this, that's an interesting article.

Yes an interesting article and agree it would have been very interesting if they had used vegetables too.

I wish when they were talking about the the mice losing or gaining 1 or 2 grams of weight they would have relayed that in percentages.  Or given the weights of the mice before and after for correlation.  The mice lsoing or gaining that much could be as easy as us fluctuating a few pounds during any given day. 

And it also backs up the saying that not all calories are equal.  And throws wrenches in the CICO argument, not contained to this forum.  Makes counting calories a whole lot more difficult  based on whether your food is cooked, picked, beaten, pounded, rolled.....and then you need a whole DNA test to figure out how much of it you are actually ingesting based on your genes.  Gonna need an advanced calculus and statistics class just to figure out  how many oreos I can have for desert.

I saw The Matrix too.

I am not disagreeing with CICO stuff.

But that chart is flat out wrong because it says paleo/primal, keto,  and intermittent fasting are about cutting calories.  Third column makes it pretty clear where it says, "HOW IT WORKS" which is wrong.  None of those ever talk about counting or cutting calories.  They do talk about eating healthy food until full.  I have read all the books from their creators just about.  And those are not diets.  Low fat diet, yeah, heard lots about that one.  Weight watchers, yeah, that is a diet plan.  The others are about health and eating healthy. Losing weight is a by-product.  They should not be on that chart.

I think that chart is completely misleading.

I follow paleo/primal and have been eating that way along with intermittent fasting.  Most of the time I do not eat breakfast.  I have been reading up on keto lately too because they have some good recipes.  Not one those is about calorie deficits.  They are about eating different styles of food and leaving out others for the health benefits.  Despite eating generally only 2 meals a day, I can easily make that more than my basic caloric intake.  I have gone months at a time of weighing my food to know how many calories I am taking in to learn that . Broken down into macros too.  It gave me an idea about quantities and the effects it had on me.

I looked at Australian Blue Lizard on Amazon and it lists the ingredients as

Ingredients
Octinoxate 7.5%, Octocrylene 2%, Oxybenzone 3%, Zinx Oxide 5.7%, Water,Ethylhexyl palmitate, Ethylhexyl stearate, Polyglyceryl-4 isostearate, Cetyl dimethicone Copolyol, Hexyl laurate, Cetyl Dimethicone, Trimethylated Silica Dimethicone, Octododecyl, Neopentanoate, PVP/hexadecane copolymer Tocopheryl acetate, Hydrogenated Castor oil, PEG-7 hydrogenated castor oil Methyl glucose dioleate, Propylene glycol, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl area

Sun Sense doesn't have their ingredient listed on Amazon but it is sold there.

that is because you are looking at the sport version which I don't use and was recommended not to use because I heard it was not as good

look at the ingredients for the sensitive version which is recommended and only what I use

https://www.amazon.com/Blue-Lizard-Australian-Sunscreen-Protection/dp/B003AVNK0S/ref=pd_cp_194_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B003AVNK0S&pd_rd_r=4ad120ed-2bf2-11e9-b82a-7d23db4f75b9&pd_rd_w=vzW7k&pd_rd_wg=SjPPe&pf_rd_p=ef4dc990-a9ca-4945-ae0b-f8d549198ed6&pf_rd_r=G5ZCFH6740WFBMZJCMP1&psc=1&refRID=G5ZCFH6740WFBMZJCMP1

I have been using nothing but Blue Lizard for several years now. Stuff works great.  I pretty much apply it once and that keeps me good all day even with being in and out of the water.

RTG,

if I may ask, after reading a lot of what you have done, congrats on losing the weight, but why are you hung up on bmi?

Sunova SUP / Re: Sunova travel bags
« on: February 02, 2019, 11:40:07 AM »
Yeah Creek,

Your travel log is what made me really like them.   Good construction and they look really good too.

Rgbar,

The problem is the website description. I know the link.  But they do not describe the sizes what so ever.  Not going to buy one with out knowing any of that information.


Sunova has 11 styles , A1-A7 and B30-B33,  of bags on the website. But only list sizes for 1 style, the A1 style.   Those  A1 sizes will fit the Sunova style boards which are more on the longer and narrower style, acid, flow, insane, and flash by it description.  My boards that I am looking for bags for are shorter and wider. Not looking for specific fit bags, just something in the size range.  I am sure with all the different style bags they make, I could find  something close to what I am looking for.

Again, the bags look great.  But I think sunova could get a lot more business by listing the measurements for all the bags they make.

Sunova SUP / Sunova travel bags

Hey Creek,

After seeing your comments about shipping your boards to Portugal in the sunova bags, I wanted to comment but thought a separate thread would be a better option for a possible discussion.

I find sup travel bag selection to absolutely suck in my opinion.  Yes I could go custom with vitamin blue.  But looking at those sunova bags, those look great.  Sunova needs to improve the sizing and descriptions on the website for them.  I think that is a niche that sunova could exploit, especially in the 7'6 to 9'6 range.  There is very little selection in that size range and that is the size that most people will take on a surf trip.  The bags look robust and with a good amount of padding.  Get Tino to explore that a little more and see if it would be worth it.  I did not know that sunova even made bags until you posted the photos of yours.

Gear Talk / Re: Looking for a new board
« on: January 25, 2019, 06:05:45 AM »
Hawaii????....

Yeah Jealous...

the world is your oyster.  You have more boards at your disposal to try and the waves to try them in.  You should at least be able to get in touch with blue planet and rent a few just to try.

Also, I have bought and sold boards off craigslist and save lots of money from buying new.  Every time I look at craigslist for Hawaii, i could usually pick out a half dozen boards that I would love to try.  So, you could always get in the rhythm of buying a used board or 2 to try for a few months and then move on to another to find what you really like.  And there are some good shapers over there too.  Go find Bill Foote. Go see Jimmy Lewis. Lots of good choices.

Jimmy Lewis Striker 8'5 x 30, 116L.


good choice, one the first i thought of too.

Others you could add to that list might be:

the new jimmy lewis destroyer
8' x 30" 115L
8'5" x 30.5" 130L
the jimmy lewis super frank
8'x30″x4.2″ (115L)
8'6″x30.5″x4.4″ (130L)
8'x31.5″x4.5″ (127L)
8'6″x32″x4.5″ (141L)

You could also look at the infinity RNB
8'2"x30" (125L)
8'5"x31" (133.5L)

And then you could always go custom from infinity or L41

It might help a little to know the area and type of waves you are surfing.

Depending on where you go, you do not need to worry about alligators or crocodiles. Most places , no.  Unless you go paddle in the  everglades.  I would go to the beaches instead. All the beaches.  Hollywood beach has some stupid laws about not launching off the beach there. Surfrider is currently fighting it.  Just go north to Dania beach and you should be fine.  Plenty of places to go in the intercoastal throughout that whole area and then go up and down the canals.  Just use a public parking lot and you should not have any problems.   On the south side of port everglades is John u lloyd park now called Dr Von D mizellwhatever park.  There is a creek in there that i know a lot of people paddle down.  Fort Lauderdale through south to Miami has a reef system a couple hundred yards offshore that you can easily paddle to if you want to snorkel also.

This chick paddles a lot off the beaches. Browse through her stufff

Also, take a day trip to the keys and paddle down there.  THere is a shop called "Paddle the Florida Keys".

https://www.paddlethefloridakeys.com/

They rent boards and have some good areas to paddle right near their shop.

The only thing is just keep your eyes open. THere is a lot of boat traffic down there.

Why no sup at soup bowls.  I surfed there years ago and me and my buddies were the only ones out for the 2 days I surfed there. And it was head high to a little overhead and perfect.  I understand about not going out when it is firing and packed.  But I would think it would be worth a look and get a few rides  if no one was out.
