I'd ask someone that has recommended BMR as a guideline for weight loss Bernsy. I haven't done that since September I think. I do not know what they are talking about or why they are proposing it.

Yes, you need a deficit to lose weight.

1-2 grape Powerade Zeros and a cube of chicken bouillon broth w/3T HWC... rarely ever get low carb flu with this combo.


Hi everyone! Just busy and dealing with some stomach issues-- stress to an extent, nuts as well I think. I was relying on them so much, I think I've developed an intolerance. Also have ditched the dairy and feel great.

Felt awful all week (low energy all day, sleeping in my car between classes, etc).. so I changed my breakfast to a fruit smoothie (1 banana, handful each of strawberries and blueberries, almond milk), plus a handful of nuts after. No blood sugar crash and stable energy all day. Gonna ditch the nuts and just add some coconut milk or sunflower seed butter to the shake itself...

Haven't been counting macros or calories, just don't want to deal with the micromanagement. I've also been seeing some ED tendencies as far as counting and tracking is concerned, so I've ditched that. Also ditched weighing myself. Preventative measures.

STILL eating high fat and besides the fruit in the morning, haven't really eaten carby things besides veggies, etc. Lunch today was half a head of cabbage fried with/ 6 strips of bacon and an onion. Extra bacon grease. So good.

Have a good weekend all!

Oh, you missed my answer post last night in the other thread.

The answer is....

The first urinal closest to the door. That way you do not have to walk past the inconsiderate dummy that parked himself at the wrong spot.

If the sinks are right up against the first urinal then the correct answer is the last urinal.

oh, I see multiple choice...something very similar goes on in the ladies...always keep an empty stall between you and the next, unless the place is packed out and then pretend you are alone...

now back to the regularly scheduled program..

It's my hubby's birthday and we are going out to dinner. :eek. I am trying to prepare by looking at the menu online. It's called white house grill and serves Greek. I think we will get the Sarmisak appetizer and not eat the bread, and I'll do the Tara Caesar topped with garlic chicken sautée and no croutons. For dessert we will have oopsie cream puffs instead of cake and I may throw some berries on there. I hope that this will keep me on plan but still allow us to have a nice dinner out and enjoy his birthday without feeling like we are focusing too much on what we can and can't have.

Scale was down to 192.6 this am (still up a little from Monday but trending back down).

Hope everyone is having a nice day! Things have still be hard at work this week but I'm hoping it gets better by mid-next week.

But!! I love fat fast for other reasons. It is a great way to turn the page and put your foot down. It is a physical manifestation of your mental decision to change what you are doing and *that* makes it a very good tool for kick starting LC/NK.

Either way is fine I reckon
I like using the recipes from the book to eat by! Just have to add extra protein!

Congrats!!

Happy Birthday to your husband!

Lots of sauces and marinades on their stuff so that might be something to watch out for.

The Souvlaki (lamb kebobs) look interesting without the rice. Maybe sub some steamed cauliflower or broccoli.

Um. Roasted garlic appetizer for the special night???

There is only one solution but it is probably worse than the problem. Make the child into a conscientious germophobe and your issues with aim will be over forever

We both love garlic...so no issues there! Actually the whole reason people go there is because they use copious amount of garlic...you can smell the deliciousness from the hwy!

Right? Remember that scene in The Aviator where he washed his hands till they bled? I've never done that but my hands have gotten so dried out and cracked from too much hand washing that they bled.

5g = 5000mg homie so getting 4000ish vs 5000ish is negligible?

heh I know

Yes, I think so. It is going to be a range because how much water you shed, which is where all the salt is going, is going to fluctuate. If you feel strange or get headaches then you are probably a bit short on sodium/potassium/magnesium.
