Some people might have quoted George Washington there, but people seem to forget he was a Soviet communist spy

They're cheap and they work. It's easier than lifting the bike up. Which isn't a big concern for woosy road bikers but its nice for heavier mountain bikes.

Most everything I have been reading, and I have been told myself, that cheese is fine. And since this is a competition, it's safe to assume thay these people are on a diet of some sort so they will be eaten on a small portion anywayp. I didn't say go and eat a wedge of Parmesan or a tub of cream cheese, you still have to find a healthier alternative, but realistically speaking, taking these things out permanently is nigh on impossible, especially if they want to stick to it long term. I think the bigger problem, at least in Frank's case, is discipline and the carb part.

Nope, not my car. The one in your picture looks like a 325 based on the small brakes. Also, I don't have black window trim.

Full sized pictures of my car....

You stated cheese was "good." While it's not terrible in moderation, it's not "good," particularly with regard to weight/fat management.

Take a single slice of cheddar (since it's one of the most commonly used.

A slice of cheddar is typically 110-120 calories, with 70-80% of those being fat. To make it worse, 50% of those fat calories are typically saturated fat.

If you can find a nutritionist/dietitian that will state that a food where the fat content is 50%+ of the calories and that saturated fat is 50%+ of the fat content, I would be shocked.

The benefit of cheese is the protein and calcium content, which can easily be found in other foods.

While I know you're not advocating "eating a block of pamesan," I'd advocate that taking the slice of cheese out of a sandwich is an uber easy way to reduce caloric fat intake.

HF has that style as well.

If not space constrained on the ground, I like this one:
