    spinach
    asparagus
    bone-in chicken legs/quarters

    what else

    uh

    i have been eating hells of lettuce. just chop it up and whip up a vinaigrette and go to town.

    if you're looking to cook, celeriac is super low-carb. also cauliflower/ broccoli/ rapini. sweet potatoes are relatively low-carb if you're not looking to go keto.

    also there is nothing wrong with lean pork or beef.

    I like how a statement about polyamory somehow turned into legalization of polygamous fidelity

    there are a lot of conclusions to jump there

    plus the even farther implication that this would inevitably lead to an increase in polygynous relationships, to the detriment of the available mate pool for men

    Which is the exact opposite of trends actually observed in the real world when we're talking about first-world non-religious polyamory.

    agreed, but this seems to include a rather large sample bias

    the other data has a much larger bias, I would argue

    what, are religious people going to be rapture'd away soon?

    Well, in the west we aren't a strict theocracy any more so I would argue the influence there is smaller than one would expect

    I would say that currently religious thought is anti-polygamy in the west, so you would only see it religiously in fringe sects, and those that would typically engage in legal polygamy would be those more inclined to it today, i.e. those typically in "alt" communities, where the balance is different vis-a-vis polygyny/polyandry than historical trends

    I think fringe sects can expand remarkably fast if permitted to do so, and polygamy is one of the ways in which rapid spread is fuelled (via providing women for loyal disciples).

    Sexually progressive 'alt' communities exist exclusively in a bubble of cultural liberalism, protected by the force of the state. If that force fades, a mob comes and beats the deviants up - if the mob feels forgiving. I don't think there are any reasons to suspect that the West has become so modern as to be immune to this kind of regression

    Now I'm confused. Wouldn't legalized polygamy inherently carry with it the ability for gay marriage, and thus enshrine the force of the state to protect people? Like, they wouldn't be deviants any more

    Gotta run and weigh some beetles, but there are a few points I need to make

    @Irond Will I get what you were saying a second ago. I guess I was working on the assumption that legalized polygamy would happen after legal gay marriage, in order to allow for any combinations

    If we operate under "Right now Polygamy is legal", then no shit it will have the effects Ronya is talking about because the only allowed arrangement would be one man/many women

    i mean in western society and largely elsewhere women are more likely to view sex more as a means to an end (emotional support, financial support, stability, etc), whereas men are more likely to view it more as an end in and of itself.

    thus it's no real mystery why men are more heavily drawn into informal polyamorous relationships than women. it's also no mystery why formalized polygamy (in the modern world) is almost always one man/ many women - because it meets the sexual goals of men and the extra-sexual goals of women.

    the question is why you think that these distinctly gendered views of sex would change just because polygamy were legal and/or polyamory was more widespread? or are you assuming that because the hypothetical world is now okay with polyamory then it also must no longer have the same concepts and values surrounding gender and sexuality?

    I think that the first two paragraphs are pretty major oversimplifications, but I don't really want to get into them now.

    To answer the question in your third paragraph: I don't think that at all. I think that popular acceptance of plural relationships would the cart, evolution of sexual & gender mores would be the horse.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Damnit I'm trying to find the old data I had on this

    Maybe feral has it closer at hand

    nah because i'm literally only posting to take a break from the fires I've been scrambling to put out

    Nero posts on the forums while rome burns.

    Shivahn: because more men (both gay and straight) tend to be interested in nonmonogamous relationships than women, there tends to be a population imbalance in nonreligious nonmonogamous communities (poly, swing, kink). Consequently, it is typical for women have more partners on average than men - one woman might be dating two guys, or there might be a leather family with four guys and three girls. And yeah I had stats to support that at one time but not off-hand right this second.

    That can be a bum deal for men in certain ways (think about Holden and Allison in Chasing Amy for a moment) but not in the way ronya is lamenting.

    i mean in western society and largely elsewhere women are more likely to view sex more as a means to an end (emotional support, financial support, stability, etc), whereas men are more likely to view it more as an end in and of itself.

    thus it's no real mystery why men are more heavily drawn into informal polyamorous relationships than women. it's also no mystery why formalized polygamy (in the modern world) is almost always one man/ many women - because it meets the sexual goals of men and the extra-sexual goals of women.

    Yeah I think the sample Feral is using "(poly, swing, kink)" is very self selecting and not really representative of society as a whole would tend towards if non-monogamous unions were widely seen as a legitimate option.

    eh. I am taking it as given that the ability for a liberal state to remain a liberal state is obviously dubious if there is a elite of men accumulating both women and their wealth within it. Yes, it would enshrine the force of the state to protect such polygamous relationships, but the state's will to do so can still ebb. Hence, 'if that force fades'.

    Liberalism is a resilient self-reinforcing system, but one of the mechanisms of reinforcement is a basic degree of egalitarianism to start with. If getting a chance of any :winky:at all required deferral to a reactionary elite, I think the reactionary elite would have no problems finding enough young men to staff an angry mob.

    When I need to lose several pounds quickly I just swap out my usual breakfast or lunch with a smoothie. A handful of frozen fruit, a few tablespoons of yogurt, a cup of unsweetened coconut milk, and a teaspoon of sweetener (I prefer Truvia - expensive but tastes exactly like sugar to me). Low calorie, nutrient dense, and filling. I keep my diet the same otherwise. Should shave several hundred calories off your typical intake a day.

    yeah that is my thought too.

    of course, i'm not really driving this diet. frankie is, using some ebook. so far it's really reduced calories (maybe 800/ day i guess?) with lots of fiber/ complex carbs/ etc. fairly low fat. yesterday was uh some apple slices, some low-cal toast with eggs (+sauteed garlic and cherry tomatoes) and a curried chicken wrap (chicken breast with some apple chunks in a whole-wheat wrap).

    today was so far a baked sweet potato mixed with dried cranberries, greek yogurt and salt + pepper and i guess dinner is gonna be salmon.

    i'd probably have made a few different calls if i were driving the boat, but as long as frankie is driven to cook lunches and dinners i am totes along for the ride.
