That is why it is called "healthy" lifestyle. Healthy eating does not allow for "binge" eating which is what you're referring too. A healthy eater is generally more aware of what portions mean to calories intake, but a junk eater generally does not care about intake count. They generally go hand-in-hand, Inns.
Inns, healthy food matters. You can't just say it is about the quantity. Take Big Mac for example, you need to eat at least 2 of them to feel like you're full when in actual fact, the calories intake are exponentially higher than eating potatoes and steamed fish. Further, healthy food is likely to satisfy you more even at lower calorie intake than junk food.
We keep throwing "IFs" around. Can we stick to the only facts that we know? And that is the PPS as of this moment in time is the only reality that matters. Speaking of events that would occur, especially "proxy fight" when price is higher is completely arbitrary.
You sound jaded as fk! lol.
I don't think life is that scary. I think on the contrary, living can be simplified and made easier if we eliminate all our excessiveness. We do everything too much without ever sitting down to just enjoy the joy of nothingness. You sit a man by a TV to enjoy a good show or sports, he would ask you for soda, beer and pizza to go along with it even though he doesn't particularly need it. We always want something on top of what we already have and what we have is never enough. That vicious cycle eventually makes life unbearable for us.
Simplicity is the key.
Obesity is a global problem, Ade. It is on the rise but I like you said, it is less of a problem in other parts of the world than it is here in the US. I think there are couple of obvious reasons for this - we have it too good today. We have the technologies such as cars, machines, we have the money to buy whatever we want, restaurants everywhere serving us cheap food (albeit junk), micro farming on the decline, and the list goes on.
However, we can already see that people are already starting to smarten up. McDonalds, for example, has been struggling. Heck, I never thought I'd see a day that McDonalds would sell salad. But they are trying their hardest to be relevant in the new age that is already upon us.
I disagree wholeheartedly on assertion that scribble on the wall would not help. We only have to look at how smoking epidemic has been controlled to see how effective awareness raising methods can be down the road. Further, anything that involves artificially changing the body mechanics should never be perceived as preferred option. No one is born with obese genes, thus the change must start with lifestyle and starts by raising awareness.
Yes I'm excited about VBLOC but at the same time, I don't see it as the solution to obesity problem. It is an enabler not a solution. That's how I see it. It would be best for this nation to start making conscious decisions to solve our problems than promoting another "paid solution". Those that are not obese make conscious choices on daily basis and if we can follow their lead as a nation, obesity will start to decline.
Are you suggesting that the FDA is going about this the wrong way? Surely, that is the best way forward, isn't it? A change in lifestyle is required for sustained weight loss. Other external variables including devices help but do not solve the problem. Same way you can't cure alcoholism with a tablet or device without actually making effort to stop drinking excessively. At least Americans are now starting to eat responsibly and also become more physically active. This is important if acute obesity is to become a thing of the past.
Proxy fight for a sub $100m cap company? You're kidding, right? If any takers come in with double the premium, I don't think they would be much in their way. I think we over fantasize too much around here.
Unfortunately many would read your post and see you as the enemy of the stock. I personally wouldn't commit more than 20% of my portfolio to biotech. The space is fraught with many unknowns that are only obvious when it is too late on both sides of the trade.
I guess we are one more day closer to approval as our great Ade predicted. All hail the great Ade! All hail the great Ade!!
I have to agree with you. It would be hard for FDA to pick a date that has not yet been put forward by our good Oracle of ETRM, Ade. I wouldn't want to be the guy paid to find that.
Dude, I've read all that before. Do you or anyone else need to keep regurgitating the same shh every hour? That is my question to you all.
Yes, we get! We know ETRM is quality. Time the information you share and not just flood the board with same message day in day out. If there is new material info, do share. But please, save to churning to yourself.
You're fkin kidding me, right, Pharma? Posting the same shhhh over and over again is ret@3ded regardless. You state your facts and let people digest it. Don't keep playing the same ol' song.
The fact that Ade is long is no justification for his nonsense. It simply justifies his madness.
