Imagine Flint is funded through a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Developments Sustainable Communities Program (a grant program which Congress has since de-funded ). Other shrinking cities, like Youngstown, Ohio, have tinkered with ideas for reducing the size of their built transportation infrastructure. Youngstowns talked-about proposal was to actually tear out underused streets, a plan that has proved more viable on paper than in practice . Flint Chief Planner Megan Hunter told Streetsblog that because the city has lost so much of its population, its overly wide streets are often empty. Some streets in Flint were designed just to speed workers from auto plants out to the suburbs. When you have kind of a free-of-traffic, very wide roadway, the tendency is to treat it like a dragway, Hunter said. Road diets tend to increase pedestrian safety and vehicular safety as well. More than 5,000 Flint-area residents have weighed in on the regional plan since the process began in 2011. Those ideas were incorporated into a set of guiding principles that set the stage for these types of proposals, Hunter said. We wanted to create a much more dynamic, sustainable city, she said. The goals clearly lead you in the direction of a road diet. In addition, the relatively low cost of road diets makes them an attractive strategy for Flint.
Mark it down, any diet with little or no concern for muscle that causes you to lose muscle weight is a diet recommended by someone who has absolutely no idea what they are doing. Here are some FACTS about dieting and trying to lose body fat (and not just “weight”) that will help you: There is not a protein shake made that is as good as real food. Zero, None. If someone is pushing a shake based diet on you, they are simply trying to sell product. Shakes should be used only when you are unable to eat real food. Shakes are pre-digested food that cause little or no hormonal response (like food). Your body also burns virtually no internal calories digesting shakes…but your body does burn calories digesting real food. Cardio only based training will NOT produce hard, firm muscles, tight skin or increase your bone density.

In general, organic foods and drinks and lots of water are required on a natural detox diet. And alcohol, caffeine , tobacco, drugs, processed or refined foods, and certain supplements are not allowed.
