    @Morethanjustanumber ...I somehow messed up your steps ...Can you please re-post your steps ? I have 8371 for 5/6 and nothing for 5/5 ...With these migraines and now a sore throat it is a wonder that I haven't screwed up more people's steps

    Question of the day

    Do you differentiate food as health or unhealthy? Do you think all food is ok but in moderation? Why?



    When not on keto I think all food is okay in moderation ...nothing should be off limits

    Question of the day

    I think all food is ok in moderation!

    @Morethanjustanumber Great loss this week - congratulations!

    @lindamtuck2018 I know it's a relief to get rid of that water weight!

    @rwood566 I hope everything went well yesterday - sending positive thoughts your way!

    Have a wonderful day, everyone!

    I think all food is good in moderation certainly but I must admit there are some food I have difficulties portion controlling because your body just wants more ,difficult to explain.

    Date 5/7
    Step count 7035

    If I could pick one food to be healthy and low calorie/no calorie it would be ice cream! I think all foods should be allowed in moderation. I personally don’t do good if I know something is forbidden. It just makes me want it more. The key of course is moderation. I can’t keep sweets or snack foods in the house as I will eventually cave and eat too many. If I have them only as a treat when we go out I do much better.
