    [–] Your vote matters! In 2015 Calgary-Glenmore was decided by just 6 votes and there will be plenty of tight races around the province tonight so get out and vote! leiahoff 5 points ago in Calgary

    When I was 16 (not 15.. But close) I worked as a lifeguard where I quite literally saved peoples lives. I gave many fucks, and so did the people I saved. I made less than $15/hr.

    Anecdote, sure. The fact remains that shitty workers should be fired regardless of age. Age should not dictate what your time, hard work and effort is worth.

    I got a nearly identical reply from a different account yesterday 😂

    [–] Exercise is more critical than diet to maintain weight loss, suggests a new study, which revealed that successful weight-loss maintainers rely on physical activity to remain in energy balance (rather than chronic restriction of dietary intake) to avoid weight regain. leiahoff 1 points ago in Health

    It is helpful knowledge for the people who eat less and move more and make no progress. As an MD (though not in America, because apparently to you that's the only group that matters) I see many patients for whom weight loss isn't as simple as that and this being a forum for information, I thought some of those people might want to know more about why/how to fix it.

    For some people, yes. For others it is still true but calories out has a greater weight because of its effect on insulin and metabolism. The trick is that once fat cells get established they get more "efficient" for lack of a better term. You could eat basically nothing and the cells would just keep getting better at using nothing to maintain themselves (to a degree). The only thing that gets them going again is exercise.

    Edit: Don't have full access to scientific articles anymore but here's one title related to the phenomenon. Role of adaptive thermogenesis in unsuccessful weight-loss intervention. Tremblay et AL. In Future Lipidology 2.

    [–] Gettin' real tired of this shit... leiahoff 3 points ago in BigBrother

    I didn't say worst. I just find unanimous voting to be rather dull. It just means there's 1 episode that matters and then 2 that just.. Don't.

    This season is SO BORING

    [–] Want more family doctors? Change how they work and get paid, says B.C. researcher leiahoff 0 points ago in vancouver

    It's all a ratio of how much it costs to operate a business. Many GPs in the heart of Vancouver have much higher operating costs and have to see an ungodly volume of patients to make a reasonable sum.

    That's not 10 hours to receive treatment. It's 10 hours to be moved into a ward after the decision is made to admit the patient to the hospital. These people have seen a doctor, been diagnosed and have started getting treatment but need to stay as an inpatient in the hospital. Still not great, but not the same as waiting 10 hrs before you see a doctor.

    [–] Surgeon Hospitalized for 6 Weeks After Working 180-Hour Shifts, Gets Called an 'Emotional Female' leiahoff 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    We know. We don't take it as a personal attack. But also when you've just gotten to sleep for the first time in a day or so it's still traumatic to wake up to a page.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. leiahoff 104 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Right?! 20sF MD here. If I had a dollar for every time something like this happened, or someone asked to see my license because I'm not an older male and they don't believe I'm a physician, I wouldn't feel so underpaid for my time anymore. If someone tells me one more time I should "shop at an old lady store" to look older or "dress less attractively" to help prevent this.... The struggle is real, keep up the great work!!

    [–] Please help me figure out what to feed my diabetic mother-in-law who's a super picky eater leiahoff 4 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago) in HealthyFood

    The trick is protein to feel full and lots of vegetables plus complex carbohydrates.

    Beans/legumes/nuts (lentils, chickpeas) aren't on that list so would be a good source of protein. I'm thinking something like a chili maybe? Can also roast chickpeas to make them crispy to put in a salad.

    Also on that same note low sugar (usually in the health foods/organic section) nut butters to put with fruit to up the protein.

    Eggs as well The fat levels isn't as bad as it's made out to be and almost exclusively in the yolk. Could do a 3 egg omelette with only one yolk if she needs a little more flavour. Or hard boil them for a salad and take out the yolk.

    Greek yogurt (can be low fat but sometimes will up the sugar) into smoothies with veg/low sugar fruit is another good idea. You could even sneak in protein powder.

    Hope that helps a little but I always find working with a dietitian can be very helpful in these instances!

    Edit: didn't really address salt but general rule of thumb is that anything from a can or package has a ton of salt so scratch cooking and investment in a no-salt spice blend is always best
