  • Yeah getting really sick off something makes sense - I got really drunk off rum and coke as a teenager and I couldn't stomach coke for a really long time (still don't like rum.) As for chocolate and peanut butter, it would probably be good for me if I didn't like them. Husband brought home a bunch of peanut butter…
  • I get creeped out watching people dip cookies in milk (or coffee, or hot chocolate) Really dipping anything in any beverage grosses me out.
  • I did this on Chronometer recently, not perfect meal but a perfect day, which included as close to possible to 100% (or more) of recommended micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals etc). It was an interesting exercise, and definitely helped me to see where I was perhaps not meeting the recommended requirements, so I could…
  • Yeah this sounds like a terrible way to live, so sorry you are feeling this way. Not sure if you are looking for advice, but if you are starving 24/7 on 1500 calories them maybe switch up the kinds of foods you are eating? Like higher volume lower calorie? I'm not sure if that would work for you - my problem is that I…
  • Oh yeah liver is gross. Never was forced to eat it though (and I don't eat any meat anyway.) Now that I think of it I don't recall if I have ever actually eaten it, the smell was enough to know I would hate it! Never tried okra. Really trying to wrap my head around developing a sudden (physical) aversion to something I ate…
  • Negative experiences for sure - I grew up in a family of smokers and as a kid had to get up and eat my breakfast at a table overflowing with dirty ashtrays, and my mother smoking and drinking coffee. Thus my aversion to smoke, breakfast cereal and coffee - they are all viscerally linked to me. And I think meat/fish is a…
  • Raptors in 7? Hoping for a historic Philly collapse (and to make Joel Embiid cry again.)
  • 1) Blueberries with unsweetened coconut yogurt - sprinkle with toasted pumpkin seeds and a small drizzle of honey. 2) Mary's crackers with a single serving Wholly Guarcamole.
  • I don't track calories - I cut out added sugar and highly processed food, eat 30-40 grams of fibre a day, and don't eat after dinner. (I am a binge eater - moderation doesn't work for me.)
  • I find it easier to lose weight if I stop eating at dinner, I don't eat in the evenings. But I guess it is different for everyone, a lot of people who do intermittant fasting don't eat breakfast, I could never do that I like to eat when I get up. So for me having that "cut off" time at dinner helps me control my daily…
  • Seems kind of random then. Covid is weird.
  • Yeah my boss tested positive back in January (or February) on a routine travel test - said he wouldn't have even known if he hadn't been required to take a test. I wonder if it has to do with which vaccine we got. I got three Pfizer and I think he had some sort of AZ and Moderna combination.
  • @Fuzzypeg @ReenieHJ Thanks - yeah I did take Thursday (day 1) off completely there was no way I could work, and then Sunday I decided to take off the afternoon and sleep. I work for an accountant, and tax deadline here is April 30. I literally could not have gotten Covid at a worse time - busiest week of the year. Feeling…
  • Working from home.
  • I have covid rn - on day 5. Given I am triple vaxx'd it's been worse than I expected. Two days of the worst flu I have ever had (relentless fever and headache even with alternating tylenol and advil every 3 hours), two days of sore throat that hurt to talk and burning sinuses, now it's like a bad cold and my eyeballs hurt.…
  • She mentioned she has joint pain and is obese - and you have her in a wheelchair from a bit of daily walking? Good lord that is over the top. People get stiff joints when they are middle aged and heavy - not sure where you live but where I am that doesn't generally constitute a medical workup. It generally constitutes…
  • I have OA, am about the OPs weight, and walk more than that every day. Obese people with OA need to move more, not less. Not sure where you are getting your info from. (And I'd hardly call walking 3 miles strenuous exercise ... )
  • My husband got Covid about a week after our 3rd shot, so not sure that timing is all that relevant. I'm finally gong on a vacation mid-May, if they offered a booster here I might consider taking it before I go just to make sure another vacation isn't ruined/cancelled.
  • Lol - I'm vegetarian. :smiley: But it's not horrible or anything, just like someone left a bagel in the toaster too long or something.
  • It happens everywhere, not just the house. Actually thought it was my car at first because that is the first place I noticed it.
  • No one is upset by individual personal preferences, or by the fact that you prefer a taller man. Men are saying that most women prefer taller men, so obviously someone who is on the shorter side is going to be upset, because it limits their chances of finding a partner. And if most women's preferences are influenced by…

  • I am around your height and weight - 10 years older. I too struggled and obsessed when I tried to hit a protein target of 100+, because I just don't prefer to eat that way and ended up adding calories that I didn't really want just to up the protein. I now ignore that and only focus only on getting enough fibre. I eat…
  • Yeah I just think it is weird I have been tested at least 20 times, including rapid and PCR tests, none have ever been positive. You would think one of them would have picked something up. Negative PCR test in June 2020 - but then months of post viral type symptoms. This one I can maybe see being wrong as my doctor said…
  • So the last few weeks I realized a pattern where I smell a smokey smell randomly. Started to worry me so I mentioned it to my husband and he has been experiencing he same thing - since he had Covid in December. Except I never had Covid - tested negative multiple times. It is so weird to me that I suspect I might have been…
  • As mentioned earlier in the thread I'm 5' 10" and my husband is about 5' 8" ish (he has shrunk about an inch in the last 35 years due to back problems/compression). Someone said to me the other day that I probably hope that I shrink as I age (ummm .. no!) because I "tower over him" now. I am two inches taller. Since when…

  • I plan to continue working from home as much as possible. I have been going into the office throughout, lock downs affected how much time I spent at the office, but we were never locked out completely. I don't ever plan on going back to the office 5 days a week - right now I am doing 2 in the office and 3 at home which…
  • It could be water - 55 oz isn't all that much - especially if it isn't consistent. I eat 30-40 grams of fibre daily, and plenty of fat - but even one day of reduced water intake throws my digestion off for several days. Maybe try really watching your water intake for a few days before you make any big diet changes?
  • The only way to get my binge eating under control was to give up trying to "moderate" binge foods. I have certain foods that are triggers so I just had to decide I won't eat those foods again, ever. (The book "Never Binge Again" helped me to wrap my mind around this - it's probably not for everyone.)

  • I can't wait for the end of the mask mandate. I only wear one now where I am required to, and will stop when the requirement ends. This of course is based on current conditions, if another virulent variant pops up I will reassess. As of now with Omicron basically being a cold for the overwhelming majority I think it's time…
