  • yeah so, I was so totally in but then my birthday happened last week and this past weekend was a doozy...like I'm still a wee bit hung over today from Saturday doozy. I'm getting tired of this, so today is my new day 4. I keep debating on whether or not to give up the sauce for good. I know I'm not so bad that every day is…
  • Interesting perspective, because I guess that's basically what Halo Top is...I could whip up a batch of my favorite protein shake, and throw in the ice cream maker...sans sugar alcohol which causes me issues.
  • Drink when thirsty, no guzzling water because some "expert" says I should.
  • Man I wish, I can't eat Halo Top or anything with sugar alcohols like Erythritol in them. They make me super bloated and um...well it gives me the runs. Unless I'm only going to eat a couple of spoon fulls...and then what's the point of Halo Top then, LOL? I guess my gut bugs just go into a frenzy when they get that stuff,…
  • LOL, it's turmeric, it's a cooking spice for goodness sake! If someone want to brush their teeth with it, bathe in it who gives a crap? If you want to lose weight there's no magic bullet anyway, eat well, not too much and work out. If anyone is under the impression there's much more to it than that you really do need a…
  • That will probably happen after work today at Crossfit LOL!
  • And who decides who's science is "undisputed?" The MFP forums...always good for a laugh B)
  • I guess I'm just not taking what others post on MFP all that seriously. Quite frankly I don't know anyone one here personally so I'm not going to take anything I read on here as fact. If someone posts something that they do or don't do that looks like something interesting to try I would look into it myself. I've got a…
  • But this isn't WebMD, an opinion is an opinion not necessarily bad information.
  • Yeah I've had this happen to me many times on here. Don't even bother answering the people with snarky remarks or asking you to post a link for "proof." Especially on something like turmeric where I think at this point we can share our personal experiences with it but there's not much "science." Which even the science…
  • Hum...never heard this. A better supplement to detox the liver would be Glutathione or maybe some MSM? I would not take turmeric expecting it to detox the liver.
  • No amount of supplementing with anything will undo a bad diet and lifestyle. However I do think that turmeric used in cooking and taken as a supplement over time will help with reducing systemic inflammation. While the science may still be unproven depending on who you talk to it has been used in Ayurveda and Chinese…
  • I used to be a huge proponent of giving up sugar. But just like giving up any other food group it becomes an exercise if futility. Plus after becoming familiar with the work of Dr. Ray Peat I feel that long term sugar avoidance is detrimental to the metabolism which has a whole host of bad ramifications. I added some sugar…
  • OP you'll love it, don't be afraid to "drink the Kool-Aide." And worst case scenario if it isn't for you just move on. Many Crossfit gyms have Boot camp classes as well which are usually like doing the WOD portion only, no barbell if you don't like the barbell. It's usually a little cheaper as well, just another thing to…
  • Your #4 and #5 Tracking is very easy in Crossfit...I have a handy spiral notebook and pen, and each time I do a lift I can check how heavy I did it before and how heavy I can do it now. You come back to the same barbell lifts and various WODs over time. Heck, you don't even need your own spiral notebook at many boxes…
  • Agree completely with the rebuttal. I've been doing Cross fit about 2 years and it's a work out. Everything can be scaled and you build up your weights. There is absolutely no expectation that you are going to walk in there and just be able to do the RX! Sure, if you get totally badass at it and want to compete you…
  • It could just be hereditary that your body holds weight around the stomach. Is that normal for you, your family? I always tend to be my biggest in the stomach and hips and thems just the breaks thanks Mom and Dad LOL! I'm not familiar with the ampetamine but that certainly could be a reason if gaining around the stomach is…
  • I've been battling posterior tibial tendonitis in my left foot for about a year. Some times it hurts so bad I would yelp in pain getting up from a chair. I had to stop running the short distances we do in Crossfit, mostly only 250-400 meters. I've had plantar fasciitis in the past from kickboxing and that flared up as…
  • I've been debating on getting one now that I am actually much more active. I moved to a major city last year and now walk everywhere. I actually think my calorie estimates might be too low some days and maybe a FitBit might help me see how the activity for each day (sometimes I walk 5 miles, sometimes up to 12 miles…
  • Even in my most staunch paleo days I found the zero carb fringe to be especially irritating. It's called a balanced diet, there's nothing balanced about eating the same thing all the time. I know people who have tried to live on meat...no thanks! Certain foods give you certain vitamins, minerals, macro/micronutrients. We…
  • As someone seriously entrenched in the Paleo way of thinking for many years and now just realizing that I only bought into yet another fad...I must caution you on this. ESPECIALLY for women very low carb can open up a host of hormonal issues. I just finished a big metabolism reset to try and make up for the damage. Keep in…
  • Oh honey...it is WAY too early in your process for this post.
  • YUM! Miso
  • I have to agree. I seriously doubt that her husband intended to sabotage anything. It's temping to transfer your own insecurities and food issues onto the behavior of others. Lord knows I've had those thoughts! My husband is skinny as a rail no matter what he eats...how could I not keep from being a little resentful even…
