Not wishy washy at all. Sounds sensible, small adjustments are easier to stick with.

That's really interesting auto. Minor health issues are making me look closer at what I eat and drink.

You seem to have achieved what many achieve using fasting. From what I've read many who do fast reduce carb intake.

Re: Soprano

Yes I've totally relaxed thank you. We've rented properties backing on to canals so the guys can fish. I've read books, chatted, shopped and sat looking at sunsets :)

Good luck in the competitions, you've done so well with not drinking.

Re: Advice from long time no s ers??

Agree totally with the above two posts, just stick to the rules and it works. Choose food you really enjoy and eat it slowly and pay attention, doesn't have to be every meal you do this but the more you tune in to what you are eating the more you find your body leads you to good healthy food.

Re: Am I A Failure If I Can Only Follow Two No S Diet Principles?

Yes! If you end a meal and still feel unsatisfied then a bit extra won't hurt. Cut yourself some slack establish the other two habits see where you are as regards your goal then decide re seconds. Obviously if you eat huge meals where you feel stuffed every meal you won't lose weight but you don't h...

Sorry to read you are feeling so low. Keep pondering your options but don't make any decisions until you are more rested.

Re: Soprano

Still not in the nos groove, my weight went up a little for a few weeks but is going back down again. I think work and now a house move are causing a bit of stress. We go away in 4 weeks for a couple of weeks, I'm hoping I can relax and unwind if I can maintain until things settle down I'll be happy...

Re: automated eating tracker

I think most of us focus on the negatives. That's fantastic to only have one "negative" I'm not sure I'd call it negative. We all have different learning styles so to have just one student who isn't suited to your style and incidentally is mature enough to acknowledge the issue as partly with him/ h...

Really hope your assessment went well.

You might be on to something re alcohol as a crutch, alternatively could you be peri menopausal?

You're not on your own :)

Re: automated eating tracker

Oh no, really sorry to hear that, hugs. Don't make any rash decisions. It's normal to doubt ourselves from time to time and possibly even a good thing as it makes us strive to be better. Though sometimes I think we can get tired of doing the same job and can yearn for something different but all job...

I've been interested in the impact of the microbiome on mental and physical health since I read a good book on the subject last year.

So much about our bodies we still don't know

Re: Smoothies with fruit

Technically I suppose you can and if it helps you form the habits then fine but if you want weight loss I wouldn't do it every day.

Have decent satisfying meals and start to learn to sit with hunger for an hour.

Too many stressors and the wheels fall off!

You need a release valve though. I just try and not let too many slips happen on the same day. So far I'm managing to maintain.

Don't beat yourself up about fails, which incidentally you can't actually do on a weekend :)

Just quietly notice how you feel. Try to lose the diet mentality of success and fail and work on building habits
