Barjaya supporters speak about Palin:

Diddy’s not a fan of Sarah Palin, you see - it’s all because Sarah Palin is the Governor of Alaska and “there aren’t even any crackheads in Alaska.” We’re not joking. We wish we were. Oh, there’s video after the jump, too.

@2 He's no more physically attractive than he is in any other way. No wonder he's bitter.

Hey bellow, so Diddy makes some comment, and somehow that's an association with Obama. Oh, that's right, they're both black, so they must be tight with one another, I get it.
You are typical and sad.

Most people who lose weight gain most of it back. Medicare looked the efficacy of diets because

New revisions to Medicare policy will allow funding for obesity treatments of proven efficacy. The authors review studies of the long-term outcomes of calorie-restricting diets to assess whether dieting is an effective treatment for obesity. These studies show that one third to two thirds of dieters regain more weight than they lost on their diets, and these studies likely underestimate the extent to which dieting is counterproductive because of several methodological problems, all of which bias the studies toward showing successful weight loss maintenance. In addition, the studies do not provide consistent evidence that dieting results in significant health improvements, regardless of weight change. In sum, there is little support for the notion that diets lead to lasting weight loss or health benefits.

The bolding was added by me. Funny how efficacy is relevant for Medicare coverage but not for sex ed!! :)

Dieting via calorie reduction never works. What's most depressing is fat cells you have shrink, but they do not go away. Thus, if you have say 17 million fat cells, they get smaller, but unless you remove them via lipo, you still have 17 million fat cells and they are just waiting to expand again. Even those who have gastric bypass gain weight back down the road.

I noticed that on television last night, too. Maybe, old (dietary) habits die hard.
