  1. 2% of Scottish TV rights? Is that about £3.50?
  2. Alex will be having a wee chuckle at that interpretation of what he said.
  3. That's not looking likely at the moment. They have had too many draws. They probably now need to win away to Romania to be in with a chance.
  4. Ah right. didn't need too much more studying then.
  5. Never mind a foot, I wouldn't be happy if I had to lose a couple of inches.
  6. I notice that you didn't answer my second question. Our eating habits have changed immensely over the past few centuries. Perhaps the biggest change has happened over the past 5 or 6 decades with our hugely increased consumption of added sugar. And before Mr Wind pops up again, I know some people have managed to survive very well eating nothing but honey for millennia, but they are the exception and deserve studies of their own. That is a tiny tiny fraction of time on the evolutionary scale.
  7. I'm not sure where this "meant to" bit comes in? Did you watch the video? They don't say that it is good for us not to eat. That isn't what is being suggested at all.
  8. Aye, that would probably be most people's first reaction. But if you think about it a bit deeper it's actually the opposite way round. In evolutionary timescales we have only learnt to provide ourselves with a constant supply of food for a very short period of time. You could argue that our systems haven't had enough time to evolve a mechanism to cope with having a constant food supply. We have had even less time to evolve to cope with pumping sugars into our systems by the bucket load.
  9. The video is worth a watch. It's early days yet and not many studies have been done. But it does make sense. But just because it seems to work for some folk in some situations doesn't mean it will be beneficial for everybody. Much more wore work needs to be done. But these folk are proper scientists, not just a bunch of cranks like some of the folk that PAIK sometimes references.
  10. With will power like that you have no chance of benefiting from this type of treatment.
  11. I'm guessing that a lot of others replying to this thread haven't watched it either. The fasting that they are talking about in the video isn't just for a few hours. What they are talking about is no food at all for 10 to 21 days. One guy is working on a system which allows a small amount of specific food types to be taken daily to be kind of similar to the starvation effect. Sounds promising for certain situations. More studies required. This video isn't about weight loss. That just happens to be a side effect of the treatment.
