  • The fact that in know people who love that disgusting "butter" cream frosting that comes on most average cakes is bonkers to me. It tastes exactly like sugar mixed into fluffed crisco, which is basically what it is. Soooo gross. The store bought containers of frosting are second grossest. I scrape them all off. Cake should…
  • Nope. I wrote exactly what I meant. 1. IF is not the same thing as just skipping a meal. 2. Many people use it for the the other health benefits that are being researched and studied. 3. There are guidelines based upon the type of IF you are doing, and your goals in doing it. You don't have to believe in the research (nor…
  • Definitely like you, learning what proper portions looked like. When I first saw it, I was like, "omg, I can't do that," and then it turned out it was a totally reasonable amount to eat. This was huge because I realized I could still eat food I liked, I just needed to change the way I was seeing it. Also learning that…
  • Good grief. I didn't tout anything. I wasn't attempting to convince anyone of these benefits. I simply mentioned that some people were using IF for the "touted" benefits, and according that system, they would need to know the rules and structure around doing so. That was enough to annoy a number of people. That is kind of…
  • OMG Popeye's chicken sandwich is so yummy!
  • :o Noooooooo :D My mom made the best fried chicken. I have never been able to do it. I don't know why. But KFC 🤢 I totally agree. I don't know what they do, but every time I ever ate their food, I would feel slightly sick after. I swear there is something in their oil or something. It is baaaaad..
  • I am happy it is working for you. That IS all that matters.
  • In my opinion most of those claims are because weight loss in general has been tied to each one of those things. And they are actually based in science when you consider it in that capacity. Obesity has been linked to cancer, infertility in women and any number of life threatening illnesses which could lead to earlier…
  • I don't understand it either. This is hardly the first time I have seen people make negative comments on the boards about IF. There always seems to be a few people when the topic comes up who appear to have some issue about it. Nobody ever really says why they take issue with it though, so I find it a mystery. Inevitably…
  • The number of disagrees on my comment is funny to me. All I did was explain why it has a name, and what it is, in so far as how it is different from simply "skipping a meal." IF as a practice overall IS more diverse than just, skipping a meal, that is a fact - but okay.. That is fine. Believe whatever you like. There are…
  • Agree. I don't care for them warm, and I like the texture of the firmer chips mixed in with the soft cookie. Unless! you plop a little ice cream on top of the hot fresh cookie. That is delicious.
  • Because it is not actually the same thing as simply "skipping a meal". While it does cut calories (as would skipping a meal), many people are doing it for other health benefits (there is plenty of research, articles, and books on this) which requires understanding the difference between simply "skipping a meal" and…
  • I have been trying to find a good store bought sauce for basically the same thing for a while now. I tried several stir fry ones, and they just tastes like soy sauce to me - no sweet, or tangyness to them at all. I don't want to have to make a sauce, I hate cooking as it is. People have said to use salad dressing, but I…
  • Yeeeesss!! I have never understood the love of sprinkles. I remember being so disappointed the first time I had them even as a child. They looked so exciting and promising.
  • I have noticed that is a popular view on this dish. A best friend of mine begged me to make it when she was coming to mine one year, and insisted it had to be the standard canned style; that was the only way it was good. My son, who loves fresh veg said he was curious about the dish since we never had it. So I made the…
  • @heybales He mentioned people spending a lot of energy on it. To me, the only way one can know how much energy another is spending on it, you'd have to know how long/often it is done by said person. That was my point. Rather than "there is always a lot of people doing it, I wonder why it is so popular," the focus was on "a…
  • Erm, just as an fyi, it is called the mons pubis 🤓 (or pubic mound if one prefers). I have never heard these weird slang terms before, lol. 😳
  • I actually find it a little odd that you pay close enough attention to other people at the gym to know how much time they are individually spending on any one particular exercise over others.. :/
  • I have seen this topic often, and honestly I have never understood the focus on either. To me, time in steady movement is what matters. I don't count steps, or pay attention to the distance I have gone. I only care how long I spent in steady movement (i.e. walking in my case). I also focus on upping my walking speed…
  • I was just reminded of one of the worst popular foods I ever had the misfortune to come across. Green Bean Casserole! 🤢🤢🤢🤢 Apparently thousands of people grew up eating this concoction during the holidays (here in The States at least). I thankfully never came across it in my youth. Didn't even hear of it until I was in my…
  • Wow, thanks all. I tend to always check anyway just out of habit, but it is good to know. I probably haven't come across that because I am a pretty boring eater; that is, I eat a lot of the same things over and over so I don't have to scan very often.
  • That is interesting. Are you sure? I only ask because I have never had a scanned one be wrong, plus it usually has all the nutrient info, whereas the ones people put in manually generally don't add the macros and such.
  • I think this statement is poignant. You will never ever eat normal again. By normal I don't mean you can't eat unhealthy anymore, which is what I think some people think. I mean normal! If you are okay with that, then you are, and that is fine. It is your decision. But if you are not, then you need to be realistic about…
  • I altered mine to get more protein as I am strength training. I left the fat and carbs evenly split and don't pay attention to them at all.
  • First, I second what @SuzySunshine99 said. I personally don't like the concept of "cheat days" as it feels negative to me. As in the rest of the week sucks, and you will be thinking all week of the cheat day to come. I also think it creates a pattern of eating unhealthy at intervals of some sort (like Sunday is cheat day…
  • You can do it with the free version.
  • Everything is wrong with the taste of coffee. I don't personally use creamer, but then, I don't drink coffee, or have anything with coffee in it. It is repulsive. 🤢
  • Traditionally people cream their coffee with milk and variants of milk and actual heavy cream. One of the most well known and commonly used here is a product called Half & Half, which is exactly what it sounds like, half heavy cream, and half milk. The purpose that it will make your drink creamer than standard milk alone.…
  • I have about 4 breakfasts, and lunches each, that I simply rotate based on mood. They are all the same calorie count. This way all I ever have to do is plan dinner. I plan dinner for about a week out and eat that dish each night, then do something else. I don't get sick of the same food as quickly as some people do. For…
