  • Except for onions, which I always loved, this pretty much sums it all up for me, too!
  • You can bake them (in the microwave even if you poke it full of holes, but I'm a big chicken so I prefer not to risk the odd explosion). But I like them boiled. Wash potato, cut off ends if you want, cut potato in half if it won't fit in your pot. Then put in pot, fill with water until potato is covered, bring to a boil,…
  • That poor lady needs a better bra. Owie. She'd be a good workout buddy, though. She's not only faster on the uptake than her friend, she pushes her toward safety before she takes off running.
  • And you can put it back on the scary list now (maybe): "High doses of artificial sweeteners like saccharin, sucralose and aspartame can change the population of healthy gut bacteria in mice and in some humans. And those changes can affect how well their bodies metabolize sugar, according to a study published Wednesday in…
  • OFY: Optimal For You. I'd try to sell you my OFY plan for $19.95 + S&H, but I can't, because it's OFM: Optimal For Me. You have to figure out what works for you. I have some questions you could ask yourself to start with, though: 1. How much is enough to be happy? The bigger the portion size it takes, the less often you'll…
  • I don't generally eat before I run in the morning and if I go out later than that it's generally a fruit smoothie, which I assume would still be a no with diabetes But what about trail-mix? Nuts, seeds, a small number of raisins, maybe? A dash of salt? Darn now I'm hungry.
  • The only thing I question is the part where you cannot cook. But you only eat convenience meals at lunch? So someone cooks for you the rest of the time? You could always grab some containers, get that someone to cook you extra, and take it to work then heat it. I'm not saying don't eat Amys by the way. I have no opinion…
  • After reading all the horror stories I've decided I'll just keep guessing at my bra size without human help and wait for society to turn sane and train enough workers in useful professions so I can get scanned and 3D print my bra at home. In pretty colors!
  • Sorry this happened to you. You have to understand retail. It pays crap, there is no respect or reward even for those who do their job well in most cases, and many of us look forward to the day when society is smart enough to replace all those jobs with self-serve stores so humanity can get on with using its gray matter to…
  • Vegan almost three months now (except for one lacto ovo day I wish hadn't happened). I had been vegetarian off and on for years before, but mostly an unhealthy veggie burger and chocolate one. I used to go through McDonald's and get cheeseburgers with no meat and some fries and call that lunch. I actually lost a lot of…
  • Been vegan these past three months (except that one day I still wish hadn't happened). By it's nature it's pretty high carb, my protein hovers at RDA though, I eat lots of seeds, nuts, and beans. I would say it's not nearly as good for satiety as low carb was, but it gives me way more energy to fuel workouts and just keep…
  • I've been doing well with 5:2 combined with most of my feed days having only one big meal. But I'm thinking of switching to Raw til 4 (or in my case probably 6-8 pm). Why? Because even though IF has gotten me pretty far, as my weight drops and my exercise increases these past couple of weeks I've been having many restless…
  • Thanks, I will check into it. One reason I haven't given in and bought any vegan chocolate is what little I've read on how it's harvested. But bananas are the same way. What the United States has done to banana growing countries is horrible. Probably not coincidentally, bananas are one of the few fruits I can always afford…
  • You're right, but I was assuming that as her husband, he is faithful. If he's not he isn't worth her bother anyway, though of course it's never that simple. I'm not saying however that spouses should let themselves go to wreck and ruin. It's better not to test the outer boundaries, but anyone asking this question on MFP is…
  • I don't think I'm meant for running either. Or not steady jogging for miles and miles, anyway. But I can walk and then sprint up a storm before dropping back to a walk. So I do that. Do I wish I could float over the ground effortlessly for endless miles like a cyborg gazelle on steroids? Yeah. But no, my knees and spine…
  • My tummy is never going to be perfect without major surgery and even then I have my doubts. But it's a lot smaller than it was even ten pounds ago. Of course it's much smaller than it was at my highest weight (245). I can't wait to see what it's like a year from now when I've replaced ten or so more pounds of fat with ten…
  • You're over-thinking this. If you go into it enthusiastically, confidently, and possibly creatively your husband is going to think only one thing: Yippeee, I get sex!
  • Good. Understand it's quite normal to have some blue years while your hormones are going crazy but that it's also courageous and smart to enlist any help you can find to deal with the issue.
  • I prefer sedentary then I estimate my own calories for everything beyond sitting my butt in my chair and very slow walking (I don't put in grocery shopping, but if I roam a mall or something I do sometimes record that). That said, if you just started or increased your workout time and effort you could very well be…
  • Oh oh oh! Gimme a ride to the karaoke bar, I'm too tipsy to drive. Hey wait...this isn't the right way... Which reminds me of that idiot song 'I'm with you' which always makes me think, "Yeah honey, and tomorrow they'll find you naked in a ditch." So I guess that's what I'm singing. Badly.
  • Not a waste. Exercising to burn more calories is pretty pointless in my experience. But exercising for health and more muscle is not a waste. So just enjoy your pizza and assume at least some of it went to build or repair muscle.
  • On the one hand as a new vegan who was a cheese eating low carb meat eating fanatic I try not to go nuts about stuff like this. On the other hand, people who eat from the suffering of others should understand and acknowledge that.. I'm a supporter of if you can kill your own food or at least watch it killed in front of…
  • Maybe, but at least that one burns calories. So I've heard...erm.
  • Total video game nerd (all I lack is the neckbeard), total geek, straight ally, but atheist. Also anarchist commie feminist vegan. Add if you dare!
  • Sorry if answered already: Google DIY soylent recipes. There are many varieties based on your preferences and needs, the recipes are offered by hundreds of users for free, and you can buy the ingredients and make your own much cheaper than premade shakes.
  • No ulterior motive on recall itself, perhaps it's more definitely a risk than it's been made out to be, however. Or perhaps not. I did say I'm a cynic.
  • :bigsmile: But it's probably why I don't have many friends in real life!
  • Oh dear, no. Just because some people survive to breed doesn't mean change is always a good thing! Not for those who don't survive. Now when we get a good handle on genetics, if we can manage to put and keep people in those fields who will refuse to do anything but good with their power (heh yeah that's likely!) we might…
