    Wouldn't that Keto Big Mac be a burger patty and cheese? Maybe a pickle and mayo? I don't understand that picture of ice on a plate.

    However, Popcorn> chips. If I start on chips I don't stop until my tongue hurts from the salt. No fiber. I only eat them when I can buy a little tiny 240 cal bag of them at Subway.

    Haven't had a potato chip in 3 years. Dont remember what they taste like, so I cant miss them! Lol


    That is sad.

    We all have to know what triggers us.. chips for me is one.

    Oreos for me. I hadn't had any for years and didn't miss them, and then my OH's aunt brought some to the house, at which point I learned I'm still completely unable to moderate them, so hopefully it will be another few years before I am tempted by them again. (They don't tempt me in the store.)

    Chips on the other hand, I can weigh out an ounce, or even a half ounce, and put them back in the cupboard and I'm fine.

    I've never tried chips on popcorn. I do like cheese or peanuts on popcorn. I was looking for a caramel popcorn recipe to make my own Crunch N Munch, but one I found made such a huge volume she was using the kitchen sink to mix it, and my eyes crossed, and I didn't bother scaling it down to a 400 calorie serving.

    Oh dear...there are times I would walk on hot coals to get to a bag of plain ruffle potato chips. I think it’s the salt. Other times they are noise sitting on my my kitchen counter and doesn’t even rate acknowledgement. Luckily I did learn early on to pour in a small bowl as that usually is enough satisfaction. Rarely do I go for another bowl.

    That is sad.

    It is sad you have to give them up. Not sure what the sticks and stones thing is for.

    Light butter with truffle salt. Omg......and I have to leave the house in five minutes. That’s probably a good thing.

    I’d choose the popcorn. I love popcorn!

    I just read that a guy ate a Big Mac every day for a month and lost 7 pounds. Just last month. He was eating 1500 calories a day, not just eating Big Macs
    5’4” he was posting on Instagram. Showing there are no bad foods. I think he was a personal trainer, or something like that.

    There's a difference between weight loss and health, however.

    Really?

    What’s healthier, being overweight or a normal weight?

    Not enough information given.

    However, as one goes up the scale (no pun intended) from a normal weight, through overweight into obese and morbid obesity there is a definite trend toward more dangerous health markers.

    Depends on the person. Overweight increases risks it does not immediately guarantee bad health anymore than being normal weight will prevent or cure bad health.

    The exception is the physical structure like joints. If a person is more than moderately obese it is going to be hard on the framework but even that is not immediate if the person didn't have a pre-existing condition.

    Maybe we can agree we shouldn’t shame people for ANY of their food choices, whether they choose to cut something out or choose to enjoy a Big Mac or a bowl of chips....
    ...or a plate of ice cubes. :cold_sweat:

    Agreed.
    But generally speaking, being a healthy weight is better for overall health. There are exceptions and other factors that can, and do, enter in
