  • So the "set point theorist" that I know in real life have used the fact that people maintain the same number of fat cells throughout their life as an argument for that theory. So the argument goes, "Well, if you have this many cells no matter what, then some people's bodies must have a genetic predisposition to gain weight…
  • I agree with what others have said about dried beans. This is a really inexpensive recipe that I LOVE. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/58211/authentic-louisiana-red-beans-and-rice/ You can omit the sausage and celery. I also add salt/pepper to this recipe. https://www.budgetbytes.com/ has some really great vegan recipes…
  • I get in moods. During the coldest parts of winter and hottest parts of summer, I tend to be the least consistent with my workouts. But I love walking and dancing around. This week, I've danced around every day for 45 minutes. I started Strong lifts 5x5 in November, but I do it only twice a week when no one is at my…
  • Not sure why I got so many disagrees on this post. Is it because I said people maintain the same # of adipocytes throughout their life? I am currently taking Anatomy and Physiology and took this from my textbook. If there are other science-backed views that show otherwise, I'd be interested to see them.
  • It also doesn't make sense on a cellular level. Your body does maintain a certain number of fat cells (adipocytes) throughout your adult life... so that is what this theory seems to be built on. But you don't keep the same cells forever and ever. Cells die and get replenished through cell division. I think the set point…
  • It wasn't bad but it wasn't AMAZING. My group wasn't super active but my coach was really good. They were really positive and encouraging and not extreme like many programs. They eased you into it. I did feel like my coach had to read from a script. Through google stalking him, I learned that he was actually a super ripped…
  • Should've or Could've could sound pretty close to this.
  • When people build arguments on presuppositions that I don't believe, then fail to argue for their presupposition. It is not a logical argument if your starting point isn't believed by all parties.
  • Yes! I don't like the texture of meat cooked in a crockpot or instapot. I tend to prefer to grill or stir-fry. There are a few things that I do really love in an instapot: boiled eggs, copycat starbucks egg bites, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts.. maybe a roast. If I could get my rice vs. water ratio correct, then I'd love…
  • Maybe it is the way that motivation/determination are defined. Initially, I only typed "motivation" but on second thought added "determination". Because there is a reality where one simply determines to stick to something-- be it easy and most satisfying or not. I don't think that being determined has to really be white…
  • There is lol! I think it's just about how pretty you can make things and take a picture. I see these posted for like a normal person's lunch-- not like a party tray. Which is fine, you do you. But to me it's just a glorified Lunchables.
  • Does Noom pay NBC for advertisement? I always find it difficult to trust many sources because they often have a vested interest in a certain program being used. The other day I was trying to find the best daily planner for hitting goals. I typed this in the search bar and got advertisements or articles which were actually…
  • Overnight oats-- my oatmeal already tastes yummy and takes like 2 minutes to make. Also these board things: I mean... I like most of the things on here individually, but I don't get the hype.
  • One time someone was looking at an old picture of me and said "Wow, you look so great! You used to look like a big mean bully." Every time I've put on weight since then, I've made sure to smile more so that people don't think I'm mean lol.
  • I'm glad you shared! I think that it is important because the more reading I've done, the more I've learned that this is way more common in overweight people than I ever thought. It may be a reason it took me so long to see that it was an issue, because we tend to see people with ED as being rail thin and very sickly. I…
  • TL;DR: I lost weight a good amount of weight in a really healthy way, then developed a ED by becoming overly restrictive. By using good resources, I was able to overcome and have been "incident free" for the past year.
  • I actually decided that maybe with the start off the new year doing both. I do typically keep a mental count just from so many years of counting but I've noticed I don't do it as often anymore. I can't be a strict counter bc it is not good for my mental health, but I may be able to land somewhere in the middle and it be…
  • I've done both. Some of the things I like about intuitive eating: 1) It is adaptive depending on your hunger. There are days where you are naturally more hungry and naturally less. If I am counting calories, I will 100% eat every single calorie because it is there. But that means on the hungrier days, I am just white…
  • Haha! Thanks for the new fears you guys! I was honestly sitting here thinking, what if my dad wants to meet for coffee and then stalks and kills me to hide me from his family!! Now, I have to think of predators on alllll sides.
  • I hope that I am as Native American as my Nana said I was. If I get a .000001 I'll be pretty dang disappointed. I always liked saying "no, I am not Hispanic, actually my great grandmother's great grandmother was a Choctaw Princess."
  • I don't know either! It could be that no one in his family has taken it... but if a cousin or aunt or anything like that was on there, it would show up.
  • This is definitely insightful! I would hope that maybe they knew he was a little crazier in his younger days and became a better husband over time. That way it would be more like...."Oh cool, dad had a love child back in his crazy days".... rather than a life altering view of him that explodes their family. Since I don't…
  • Me too lol! It will only show me if one of the family members have taken the test too. Being as my mom was kind of excited for me to get the test, I’d say she doesn’t have anything to hide. But either way would be win/win. It would be nice to know, especially for family health history. We wouldn’t try to stir up any family…
  • So... I was raised by a single mom who was awesome and did her very best. When I was 12, I asked who my father was and she told me that it was a girl that I went to school with's dad. She told me never to tell because there was no sense in disrupting their family with something we could not prove. When I got older she told…
  • If I work out a little, I find maintaining weight loss to be easy even if I am not eating exactly how I'd like. If I pair that with a calorie deficit, I feel good and I see the scale go down. If I work out like crazy doing a ton of cardio, I tend to overeat like crazy and just maintain. If I don't work out at all, I tend…
  • I'm anxious about the vaccine more because it hasn't been tested very long and I anticipate it being promoted very aggressively. I am for taking experts' advice in some areas like mask wearing and social distancing, but for vaccines I would take a wait and see approach. I think that with COVID, people have been quick to…
  • While I definitely agree 100%-- a dietitian and therapist would be ideal, many people cannot afford this help and I don't want to leave those people hanging. I struggled with bulimia for about 7 years, beginning very "casually", then progressing into a daily compulsion. I felt like I really needed help, but my insurance…
  • This is the container I bought for the instapot: This are some recipe options-- I love the bacon and gruyere. I think cottage cheese is what helps get that really good texture. https://www.platingsandpairings.com/instant-pot-sous-vide-egg-bites-starbucks-copycat/
  • * Homemade Starbucks eggbites-- I make them in the instapot and they are so good and reheat so well. * Chicken and Burgers on the Grill * Chicken Fajitas (It tastes better cooked on a cast iron skillet) * Burrito Bowls-- I cook chicken, salsa, beans and corn in a crockpot and put it over rice with cheese. * Salmon and…
