  • What are you eating? Do you have a health concern that requires you to lower your sodium intake? About 1/3 of people respond well to lower sodium. About 1/3 of people respond poorly to a low sodium diet. The remaining 1/3 really have no need to worry either way. Fat is good for you if it is good fat. Many doctors,…
  • I count a day as a 24 hour period. I frequently switch between working all day and working all night. Sometimes I'm awake more than 24 hours depending on my work schedule. I still count a day as 24 hours. However, some days I plan higher calories (if I'm on a 19 hour workday, for example) and other days I plan fewer…
  • Either you or your doctor should be reporting side effects like this from the vaccine.
  • I'm curious...why did you buy raisin bran if you don't like raisins?
  • Having lost and gained weight repeatedly over the years, I take any compliment on my appearance as a reminder that I will soon be fat again. It depresses me. I've also lost (and gained) weight from serious health issues so sometimes a comment that I'm looking great is really a reminder that being very ill is perceived as a…
  • I, too, clicked on this to see what Tim Horton's was up to
  • Turkey, cheese and apple skewers with gf crackers or a gf muffin and yogurt Chicken salad with gluten free crackers and celery and carrot sticks with nut butter or hummus Ham quesadilla (on gf tortilla or wrap) with applesauce and grapes GF pasta salad (mix with peas and parmesan) with turkey/cheese rollups, strawberries…
  • I do buy gluten free pasta ($2.99/bag), sometimes gf bread (I think $4.99, ridiculously overpriced), and I have a bag of gf all purpose flour ($5ish for a small bag, but it lasts a long time since I don't use it much) in the cupboard. But I can't think of anything else I buy that I wouldn't buy if I weren't gluten free.…
  • I did it years ago. I'd done GaPS Diet extensively before that so I had already done a lot of healing and had a pretty good idea of some problem foods before I started it. I don't really have any advice for you except to take it slowly and don't assume your problem foods are the same as everyone else's. I can eat eggs and…
  • What do you eat in a typical day? Why have you chosen a low fat, low cholesterol diet?
  • The great thing about a food scale is that you can eat a lot more, or at least I can. All those videos showing how you're eating too much worked out the opposite for me. I've found a half cup of oatmeal in a measuring cup is about 20% less than the actual 40 gram serving size. Butter measured in a tablespoon is about 12…
  • I tried all sorts of shoes, orthotics, inserts, stretches, exercises, etc to no avail. Then I got my thyroid treated and it went away never to return. Plantar Fasciitis is a common symptom of hypothyroidism.
  • I miss restaurants, but don't see myself returning to them anytime soon. I liked them for the social aspect and that seems to be gone for good with eternal masking. I don't like eating out now. You have to scan a code to see the menu on the phone...and I don't want to read the menu on my phone. I don't want to rush through…
  • Probably you just need to count your calories to make sure you aren't overeating on keto. Those fat calories can add up quickly. At your age, weight and height, it's likely you can't eat very much, maybe even as low as 1400-1600 calories a day for maintenance. As for exercise in a fasted state, I don't usually think that's…
  • I have used it, but it was a couple years ago so I don't know if the quality has changed. I ordered lunches/dinners, but not breakfast or snacks. I was impressed with the quality and taste of the food, and I thought they had excellent customer service. I would use them again.

  • From the title, I thought this was going to be a support post for people who lose very slowly, or have trouble losing because of health/metabolic/medication issues.
  • It may be your emotions and that may be what you need assistance with, but don't let a doctor or anyone else try to blame this on emotional issues if it is a physical problem like anemia or hypothyroidism. It's extremely common for women to be brushed off with an antidepressant and sleeping pills when they have an actual…

  • I love shirataki noodles. I don't mind the smell as I rinse them well, and the texture issue is solved by dry frying them. Usually, I prefer them in Asian style dishes or soups, but I do have one really good Italian-style spaghetti recipe I think they're great in. Your meatball recipe looks good.
  • I had a See's marshmallow egg for lunch today. Most days, it wouldn't be worth it, but today it was. It was mid afternoon, I was at the mall walking by the See's store, and I'd been too busy to eat the healthy lunch I'd planned. I figured it was so late in the day, dinner was only a couple hours away...and the chocolate…
  • You take everything so literally. When people talk of melting fat, that's not what they mean (unless they are talking about duck breast or similar).
  • It's inaccurate because 1200 is the lowest calories. If you're smaller and need fewer calories, you won't have a big enough deficit at 1200 to lose 2 lbs per week. You need to be in a deficit of 500 calories a day to lose 1 lb a week; 1000 calories a day to lose 2 lbs. 1200 calories may not allow you to get that big a…
  • Probably some combination of all of them. You do have to remain in a calorie deficit so that's number one. But from a sustainability standpoint, if I eat more protein, I won't be as ravenous so I'll be more likely to stick to the calorie deficit. If I eat too few or too many starchy carbs, I'll also be ravenous. Too low…
  • For those who suggested making my own soup - I have scores of wonderful soup recipes that I make often. I take canned soup in my suitcase traveling in and out of the U.S. (which I do weekly even now) Agriculture will confiscate homemade soup, but in most countries, they will allow most types of canned soup. Also, homemade…
  • Get properly educated, tested and medicated...which very likely isn't just a TSH test and Synthroid. Get your Free T3 and Reverse T3 at the proper healthy level, one which leaves you feeling good. Find the right medication for your thyroid, be it T4, T3, NTH or some combination. Find a good doctor, which can be nearly…
  • I have one when I'm low on protein...and I'm often low. I don't really try to enjoy them; they're just for the grams of protein. I don't have a favorite, but I use some variety of whatever I have on hand often mixing the powders with just water. I have Pure Protein, Slim Fast High Protein, Raw Warrior Pea Protein and…
  • I suspect you get a lot more calories than I do. My meal would be either the chips or the soup, but not both, unless I'm skipping some other meal of the day.
  • I first wondered if it was mislabeled. I went to their website and it has the old nutrition I was expecting. The front of the can label looks the same online, but the ingredients on the back and NI are different so I think they just changed the recipe recently (or maybe I got some strange counterfeit soup).
  • How many of us can say we haven't had the same experience of gaining and being disgusted about it? I am certain most of us struggle. Try not to be disgusted with yourself...just do better from here on out. And despite what your doctor said, I know tons of women who have gained from IUD's and almost every other type of…
