    Quite a few places have some decent options, if stuck fish/chicken breast with rice/potatoes with veg (hold the butter sauce) are always good.

    Booze though, I think some people end up drinking vodka with light red bull, that sorta low calorie combos and then drink water in between. Don't know if that works for you though.

    I'd call that a "refeed" and don't worry, Christmas cake diet break :P

    "Five UK nationals are going to court in the Netherlands in a campaign to keep their EU citizenship after Brexit.

    They want a Dutch judge to press the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to clarify their rights."

    In a way I hope they succeed but:

    "But this could be "politically awkward" for the remaining 27 member states.

    "It would take out of their hands the question of what rights UK citizens would enjoy after Brexit.

    "Those rights would no longer be a matter of political gift - EU law would continue to guarantee EU citizenship rights to those who are UK citizens at the date of Brexit. It would, potentially, weaken their position at the negotiating table."

    Now I don't think rights should be up for negotiation, but Theresa May started this whole bullshit as the EU offered all rights, but the UK didn't want to agree to that as it means doing the same for EU immigrants in the UK, and it was all about reducing immigration for Maybot and her team.

    So, it may weaken the position of EU immigrants in the UK again. I'm thinking the EU will do the right thing anyway, as they already forced a lot of concessions from the UK. But it's politics which can be nasty at times.

    This one has disc mounts but I think usually it was sold with v-brakes.

    I was lucky I only had to replace the elastomer, taking the whole thing apart is tricky. Howard has done it and made a nice thread on here :)

    Is talking shite cardio or weights I wonder :p

    Joking aside, some people do have a lot of water weight fluctuation. I think I was 64.8 one week a few months ago and 64 the week after, didn't eat any huge pizzas either :(

    If that sort of stuff panics you, probably easier to measure the fattest part of your belly/gut/3pack and track that along with weight? It's in MFP under goals, hips/gut/neck (?)/weight.

    Admit it, that was a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu­uuuuuuge pizza :p

    1,6 kg is 400 grams of carbs, easily stored.

    63.8 > 63.6 is that - 1 "hippy dump" ;)
    What is the official HD anyway, a kg, 500 grams...

    "Dancers at the end of time" is really good too!

    BTW the "internet library" has scans of older Elric comics if you are interested in reading those.
