I Knew You Were Trouble

I think when it's all over it just comes back in flashes, you know? It's like a kaleidoscope of memories; it just all comes back. But he never does.  
I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. It's not really anything he said, or anything he did - it was the feeling that came along with it. Crazy thing is, I don't know if I'm ever going to feel that way again. But I don't know if I should.  
I knew he world moved too fast and burned too bright, but I just thought, "How can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?" Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. I think that the worst part of it all wasn't losing him. It was losing me.

Gallstones

I'm studying for a test I have on Monday and I find it interesting that two risk factors for gallstones are prolonged fasting and rapid weight loss.  I work with someone who suffers pretty frequently, at least a few times a year, from gallstones.  This same person practices intermittent fasting, which is the practice of fasting for 16 hours and consuming all your calories in an 8 hour window span. Additionally, this same person has reported a 20-30 lb weight loss in a year, which he attributes to intermittent fasting.  (I must note that he looks fabulous.)  While I wouldn't necessarily call a loss of 20 lbs in a year "rapid," I wonder if loosing a lot of weight, when someone is within normal weight to begin with, contributes to gallstones.  I would think that the intermittent fasting also contributes to gallstones, but I'm not sure if either statement is correct.  Something to consider...
