Mayor Bloomberg says to lose weight you have to eat less
The New York Post ^ | March 1, 2013 | David Seifman

Only you're probably not going to like his advice for losing weight -- just eat less.

"If you eat less than 2,000 calories you'll lose weight," the mayor said on his weekly WOR radio show today. "If you eat more than 2,000 calories, you'll gain weight. Now some things metabolize more quickly than others. And everyone says I should go on this kind of diet or that kind of diet. Don't eat and you'll lose weight."

Why is this news, and why does a 2-bit mayor care about it?

I think he’s trying to show he can be right about something. I’m not sure this is it, however. I had to eat less than 1500 Val’s to lose weight.

Did not know this asswad was a Doctor.
His advice is crap. There is a scale used to determine calories needed to maintain a stable weight for you eat more you gain you eat less you lose. However it is not a generic number.

If you don’t get enough calories, your body will go into “starvation mode” and start to store fat.

This guy is an idiot and not one size fits all.

WTF happened to this country where these Nazis are telling us how to live our lives?

They work for us, we are not subjects or peasants and these politicians need to be reminded of that FACT.

They work for us. If the people of NYC had any sense, they would recall this moron.

There exist translated internal memos back and forth between the Waffen SS and german industrialists who required forced labor that are almost verbatum.

Whole Foods Market, the largest natural-foods store in the US, fell 6.3 percent in after-hours trading yesterday after lowering its sales forecast for fiscal 2013.

The shares slid $6.08 to $90.82. Sales may increase as much as 11 percent in fiscal 2013, compared with a previous estimate for growth of as much as 12 percent, the Austin, Texas, company said yesterday.

First it’s the Wookie, then it’s this rich turd Bloomberg telling me how to eat.

Tll you what Bloomberg. Pass a law saying that fat welfare leech’s and other leech’s cannot buy anything fattening with their food stamps and then I will be convinced you mean what you say.

By the way with hudreds of people hungry in this world here is a new program that is sure to be government funded before long.

It also on what you do. Professional athletes typically require far more than 2,000 calories a day. I’ve read that the Amish, the real ones, often require somewhere around 7,000 calories to meet their daily needs.

2000 Calorie Diet and no exercise will not make you lose weight.

Just maybe Bloomie means 2000 calories at every meal will help your politicians lose weight from your wallet. look at the amount of calories politicians consume.

Chris Christie dos not eat no 2000 calorie diet, Bloomie himself does not consume 2000 calorie, nor does the First Wookie and the Current Present Resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (AKA - White House).

Oh Christ.

Here comes the next mandate.

Dietary Police tracking your calories and arresting you on the 2001st one.

I guarentee you this is where this megalomaniac freak is going with this.

Ban Foodstamps...”

How about just establishing an ideal BMI and weight for each person getting food stamps along with the total numbers of calories allowed to maintain that pre-determined weight for a month. Load the card with calories allowed, not dollars. Each item available for purchase in a store would contain a price as well as total caloric content for that item. Then when items equalling that number of calories has been purchased, the card is not valid until the beginning of the next month.

If you eat more than 2,000 calories, you'll gain weight.

Is he dumber then dirt or a box of hammers?

You can eat 5,000 calories and not gain weight if you are working them off.

And yeah I know guys who eat enough to make his nannyness pee his lacy drawers. They are not fat, some are down right skinny, they are moving all day long and burn up every calorie they eat.

The government itself can be thought of as a living, breathing autonomous organism, which demands larger and larger meals despite the cellulite and thunder thighs, and just recently refused to have so much as one corn chip removed from the larger bag it received to quell its insatiable hunger.

Diana Taylor (born 1955) is the former New York State Superintendent of Banks and the domestic partner of Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

It was rumored that Taylor would be nominated by George W. Bush as the Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), but Taylor was never offered the job. Reports said that Taylor had undergone a background check by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and had finished the White House paperwork for the position. The reports also said that Bush aides were informing U.S. Senate leaders about the nomination and that it would be announced in a few days.
As Mayor Bloomberg unveiled a second-term agenda to cut down on gun violence and the flow of illegal guns into the city, more rumors came about suggesting pressure from the National Rifle Association caused President Bush not to nominate Taylor. Following the withdrawal of her nomination, Bloomberg cancelled a scheduled appearance at a White House dinner, which would feature the Dance Theatre of Harlem. He instead attended a community meeting in the Bronx.

Taylor, a divorcee with no children, met Mayor Bloomberg at a Citizens Budget Commission event in 2000, where they were seated together. Since then the couple has been together and she acts as an unofficial first lady for the city, joining the mayor at social functions and campaigning with him. She has been frequently seen marching with him in parades citywide.
During the 2005 New York City transit strike, Taylor stayed with Bloomberg in the city’s Office of Emergency Management headquarters in Brooklyn each night of the strike. During his second inauguration in 2006, Taylor occupied a front row seat with the mayor’s mother and daughters.
Both have denied any intentions of marrying.

Hizzoner has that covered-—

Exercise, by Bloomberg’s reckoning, is not a substitute for reducing intake.

“You have to run for half an hour for one muffin. So it’s not exercise, it’s overeating. Exercise contributes,” he said.

Note to Bloomberg, You forgot the second part,
you also have to WORK MORE.

If you cut back but still veg out on the sofa watching
judge judy all day, guess what? You won’t lose weight.

Walking to the 7-11 carrying your EBT card is not enough.
