“You can’t have a world where 50 percent of the people are dieting and 50 percent of the people are starving if you want stability.” – John Shelby Spong
Unless you’ve lived under a rock, in a cave, or have locked yourself in a donut factory for the last few days, you’ve probably heard of the Keto diet. Keto is short for ketogenic, and if you think remebering the name is hard, wait until you try being on the ketogenic diet.
At first, it sounds fabulous – you get to eat all the meats and fatty foods you want…
… but that’s pretty much it for you, mister. Say sayonara to carbs, sugars, grains, most fruits, alcohol, and rice, cuz you’re about to take a time-travel machine back to the good ol’ days of hunting and gathering. I know, I know. Just what you’ve always wanted.

On one hand, you have #teamkaepernick and BLM supporters cheering on Nike’s decision to take public action recognizing inequality and injustice in America.
On the other hand, you have right-wing Patriots who are already defiling anything with Nike logo on it.

So what are people doing to protest Kaepernick and that little-known shoe brand? This.

We all know that special someone who feels he is so tough he can do almost anything. Confidence is great, but what happens when your confidence overrides your common sense?
