  • i dont have the drive to drink so i make sure every morning i move the amount of water i have a goal for (2 litres in total) to a special shelf in my fridge and that is how i make sure to drink my allotment. i also make sure to keep the bottle im working on out and visible because it reminds me to pick it up and drink it…
  • you dont need carbohydrates to fuel or function properly. you can fuel on keytones perfectly fine and its a preferred source for brain function for certain medical cases. ie, epilepsy.
  • try this. it helped for me. keep a Tupper wear of chicken salad (or some else you like like tuna or egg salad) also in a bowl ready to eat in the fridge. when YOU THINK you want something, take a few spoonfuls of the salad. you will find that the craving goes away when you are actually something else. you only crave when…
  • 15 min of cardio is nothing. maybe 150 calories if that but on a treadmill...more likely 100. 20 mins of weight training is not burning anything calorie wise. you shouldn't be 'so hungry' after that kind of work out. so i would think you are allowing your brain to convince you of something that is happening that is not and…
  • are you eating low carb? if so, that is a side effect of ketosis. not just 'not hungry' its no appetite and have to force down food because you know you have to eat. just want nothing to do with food most times and hard to stomach eating. if so, this doesn't last (it lasts longer than the fat adaption period which is…
  • does anyone know where NovusDies went? his posts were also so well thought and thoughtful out and appreciated and he inspired a lot of people. then he just stopped being active and i have been wondering and worrying about what happened to him.
  • does anyone know what happened to nervous dies? (i i know the user name is not correct) he was a larger loser and started the large loser group. his posts were also so thoughtful and educated and then covid hit, and i haven't seen him posts for months and months. i always wonder and hope that he if he is ok.
  • i don't live in the US so not sure all the rules about doctors and paying etc as my health care is gov't paid. but could you just walk into a doctor's office and say, hey listen, i don't know anything about doctors or setting appointments or knowing how to pay or if i have to pay. i have no idea how to navigate this system…
  • B4 i even got to your sentence 'bursitis' i was thinking its bursitis. it seems to some out of no where very painful and it can last what feels like months. then it disappears as quickly as it came on like almost overnite. of course losing some weight will def help. try to avoid repetitive motion and to not sleep on that…
  • lets say you burning 300 calories per work out is accurate. 1. that TOTAL 300 also includes the calories you would have burned if you hadn't worked out...ie, 60 calories just sitting around....so really just 240 calories EXTRA per spinning. but lets even say it didn't. (ie, net 300 burned.) 2. 300 x 3 = 900 calories burned…
  • OP, all your posts are pretty sus to me . they are all about the same thing and a bit obsessive. then you never come back to follow up or comment on peoples responses...just keep posting the same thing in new threads using different words. you are also pretty new here and have indicated that you don't use this app as…
  • not one person has commented on how unrealistic it is to loose 100 pounds in a few of months. not going to *kitten* foot around your mental health issues (which are real) but you won't loose 100 pounds in a few of months. even if you are morbidly obese. you are setting yourself up for failure. adjust your expectations or…
  • are you eating low carb? there have been studies that low carb is worse for doms (its been while so i cant source the studies...but i can say antidotally this is truth. blowdrying your hair with out getting fatigue is a bit alarming. fibromyalgia? thats really hard to diagnose.
  • relevant source?
  • they will sometimes prescribe anti depressants for tinnitus because it works. here we have some remedies in the natural/vitamin aisle at the drug store if you are looking for short term relief
  • no what they are looking for is someone to blame and put accountability on when they don't succeed. "let me make other people responsible for keeping me on track and when they let me down i can blame them" people may not realize this consciously but they are already looking for excuses that will allow them to fail. its…
  • fitbit is giving your gross calories. not your calories from the actual actual excercise. so if it tells you you have burned 400 calories during your work out, you (maybe would have burned 100 if you just sat there...so its really only 300 net burn, example only) so if you are eating back based on your excercise burn, you…
  • have you significantly cut back on carbs? are you under 50ish grams per day of carbs? you may be experiencing keto flu. it doesn't last more than a couple weeks if that is what it is.
  • I get this done. works...almost immediately but best effects take several weeks as the damaged veins die, etc. this is likely something you will need to do every few years. you must make sure to attend your two week followup because any clotting needs expressing else you'll get staining that will never resolve. i go in…
  • eat a pickle right after and see if that makes a difference.
  • Nadine, are you a BOT? everything about your posts and your other user ids screams BOT.
  • Does she have any symptoms of or has ever been diagnosed with PCOS? that may be the answer to why low carb or KETO helps where nothing else does.
  • depends...are you eating dinner because you are hungry? or eating dinner because its dinnertime and that's what you are supposed to do? if the latter...you should start examining your relationship with food and why you think you have to eat even though you aren't hungry...just because the clock says its time to eat.
  • her last post you commented and said that that was the last thing you were going to say to her. yet here you are with this completely unnecessary comment and gif. she wasn't even asking for advice or help from anyone..... in particular from you. she was just ranting and making a statement but you had to give advice anyway.…
  • i know this wasnèt your question....but i have a bit of personal experience with what you are going thru...i know this can pain can be debilitating and exhausting and it can last what seems like forever. then all of a sudden, the pain is gone as quickly as it came on. i hope that is what happens with you also if that gives…
  • this works really well. i use it for other things besides knees (like bursitis in my hip and back pain) and usually after 3 days once per day the pain is gone. she will need a prescription and her dr may not give it since its not for its intended use.…
  • thats for restless leg syndrome
  • how to measure things like a canadian:
  • it could be your gallbladder. they often overlook that as the source of the pain when you complain of chest pain.
