  • Open diary. Not counting today, though since I’ll be at my parents. But tomorrow will be back.
  • I I always found its better to reward yourself after a great week of healthy eating, and getting in all of your workouts. This way, you’re focusing on creating the habit necessary for a healthy lifestyle. We’ve all hit plateaus when losing weight and it becomes frustrating causing some to throw in the towel. And I’ve found…
  • I buy a new manga every Saturday, and then I add a new character to my Halloween sleeve at the end of each month.
  • I also struggle with binge eating which attributed to my bulimia.
  • 5’7”- 133lbs TOP-fitted small, but I prefer baggier clothes so I choose mediums. BOTTOMS- usually size 2, but I have a pair of 0’s and a few 4’s I wear with a belt. Depends on the brand.
  • When I did keto last winter (I’ve since returned to my vegetarian lifestyle), I found shirataki noodles near the vegan/Asian/organic section of markets. They’re 0 carbs, and very versatile. I enjoy them even now that I’m back on carbs, but I also love all foods. My keto coworker didn’t like them since they have a distinct…

  • I don’t use shakeology either. I eat mainly a plant based diet, so I basically just do CICO.
  • I actually have bananas in mine right now. I start them after work and let them go overnight. I bought a mandoline for my apples since uneven slices makes dehydrating a bit annoying since half will be done, then you have to condense the softer ones on another tray to continue drying.
  • Just snack on more fruits during the day. They’re quick to grab and the water flushes excess fluid. Watermelon tends to be an excellent way to move extra water retention from sodium.
  • I think it comes more down to a lifestyle you want. If you’re craving something hardcore, have it. You coding even have to wait for a specific day if it can fit into your daily goal. And go ahead and enjoy yourself on a vacation. Sample local food you won’t usually find in your own city instead of binging on everything,…
  • I used to eat 8-12 eggs a day when I was lifting heavy over the winter, and I was very lean and not very hungry with the macros coming out nicely. But since I’m female with a smaller structure, 30 some eggs wouldn’t be necessary for me. The benefit is that eggs are cheap, very versatile, and quick to cook.
  • I thought the same since she never really talked about ‘dieting’ until the last sentence, and assumed she was only talking about being ‘naturally’ thin. But I think what she means is that, you know you have disordered eating, but mixed with body dysmorphia, you don’t realize you’re thin. Like in my case, I know I have an…
  • I haven’t had a drink since December 2015. It’s easiest just going cold turkey. But I quit due to religious reasons (Buddhism), so I had that in my mind every time I thought about having a drink with dinner. You can do it. My roommate was a major alcoholic before I moved in and he went an entire year without a drop when I…
  • It’s only available as the premium. Net carbs are just total carbs minus fiber. So something that has 10 total carbs, but has 6 grams of fiber, your net carbs are 4. When I did keto last winter, I just separately tracked it on a piece of paper.
  • I would just go with a Fitbit reading. Doing the workout is more important than what you log it as, anyway.
  • Have you tried hemp seeds? They contain every amino acid and even omega 3, 6, and 9. You can sprinkle a table spoon in morning oats, or a protein smoothie every few days. If you notice bloating from omegas, try taking them at night.
  • I’ve been gluten free due to celiac disease. I lost a lot of weight when the illness hit because I was so nauseous and even water wasn’t sitting well. After getting a biopsy of my stomach and small intestine, I did the FODMAP diet which eliminates a ton of things while your body heals itself. Then you begin adding foods…
  • An eating disorder begins in the mind, and way before you count calories. I’m actually a few weeks in recovery from my 20 year ED, and MFP isn’t the issue. An ED is a mental health issue. A ‘normal’ person can eventually have disordered eating, which is very different from an eating disorder. People with EDs starve or…
  • I did two rounds of 80 DO this year and loved it. For the rolling of the bands, I bought nylon bands from Lovotex (amazon sells a 3 pack for a good price.) they don’t roll at all, and some moves will appear a lot less, but you feel the muscles more. Keep the regular bands for moves like tricep extensions since the nylon…
  • I wouldn’t say you’re ‘jealous’ of anyone, but more frustrated with yourself. Some people just have a bad relationship with food. Therapy is probably your best bet for figuring out the ‘why’ of your eating habits. It’s a form of disordered eating and a professional will be able to target the real reason you’re reaching for…
  • When on vacation, half of the experience is trying the local food. Are you fine with how you look in the mirror right now? If you feel you look similar to the way you looked before the vacation, then ignore the scale for now and focus on healthy foods and getting back on track. You may have bloating from the increase in…
  • You didn’t destroy your metabolism, so that should help ease your thoughts. I’ve had an eating disorder for 20 years, and I can still lose weight with healthy eating. My opinion, don’t weigh daily (I know you probably do since I did from my ED.) only count weekly weigh ins. We both know how much food weight our bodies can…
  • I have an entire room in my house dedicated to my comic book collection. I have several full shelves of mangas, Batman legos above my fireplace, kpop music playing all day, go to about 10 cons a year, and cosplay.
  • You're talking to a girl that has premium subscriptions to 3 different snack crates arriving monthly. Haha! I love food and snacks.
  • Hello from Ohio, U.S.A.
  • I gave up alcohol last year when I started practicing my Buddhism more seriously (no drugs or alcohol). Haven't had a drink for all of 2017.
  • I've had an ED for 19 years and it's the mental aspect that you should focus on. I would restrict when I was feeling stressed, so to switch it up, I started doing yoga to cleanse my spirit. Then when I started weight lifting, I realized how much food I needed and upped my intake which took out the restrictions. By putting…
  • Be nice. I understood what she meant. T25 is not an easy paced run either.
