  • Somebody STOP me!!!!

    I have belonged to sprakpeople.com for a long time. There is a small paleo team and I like the low carb team there. I also have been using the food tracker for a long time, so I am comfortable with it. When I need/want to track my nutrients I go there.

    Lately, for hte first time in over 4 years, I have been going to their regular message board. Please, pretty, pretty please tell me this is stoooopid! It is, because all the CW garbage. I am going to have a coronary. And then they will blame my liefstyle, not the stress caused by making myself crazy reading that crap.

      "Special K Challenge" What the hell is that and how do I kill it?

      Sometimes you just gotta jump out of the crazy tree, even if you have to take a little bump on the way down. Better than being bitten by the crazy snake.

        I think reading stuff from other viewpoints can be inspirational, in that "I'm gonna prove you wrong" kinda way. I know it's a little silly, but I sometimes read stuff on a certain site recommending everyone eats thirty something-or-others every twenty-four hours. Not gonna name it, lest I provoke another invasion! I figure the best argument against their nonsense, or CW, or whatever is to get myself super-healthy by PB methods.

        Use your forays into CW territory to further your own goals. But if you feel a coronary coming on, maybe steer clear for awhile.

          Don't focus as much on low-carb as on the quality of your carbs. Your body needs carbohydrate. It cannot burn fat without adequate carbohydrate intake, and your brain and nervous system operate EXCLUSIVELY on carbohydrates.
          This is the part that drives me batty. Yeah, okay. I think I need to avoid some of the posts and just read those that won't make me nuts.

            All I know is I was plateauing for a long time until I upped my carb intake.

                Nutmeg,

                I could actually say the same things about parts of the MDA forum
                I'm trying to lie low. No point in getting yourself all frazzled, cause people are pretty much going to do whatever they do.

                  Yeah... I lowered my carbs to 20 grams a day for months... and plateaued big time. I'm working on upping them to around an average of 50, with occasional bouts of 75 grams a day to see how that works out for me. I'm feeling more energetic than I had been.
                  Start weight: 250 - 06/2009
                  Current weight: 199
                  Goal: 145

                    I suggest staying away from them. They have the government Food Pyramid, Big Food, Inc, the Amedican Diabetes Assn Food Pyramid, and brainwashed doctors + nutritionists nationwide parroting the "Official Propaganda." All we have is a nutty book and a few quack doctors supporting us ( in their opinion ). NO ONE is going to believe us that grains & sugars are bad for our health, and by discussing such HEARSAY is just opening ourselves up for RIDICULE.

                    I told a poor super obese man at the gym today about our diet plan, and he laughed at me, saying if Bread was good enough for Jesus Christ, it was good enough for him. We are fighting a LOSING battle speaking against CW & Big Government.

                    Like it or not, when we speak against conventional wisdom, we are automatically classified as a NUT CASE. Who the hell are we to speak against the GOVERNMENT Food Pyramid ? ? Sooo I have learned to keep my mouth shut, unless someone asks me how I lost weight.

                      Heh. There are definitely people who I avoid on the MDA forums. I wouldn't go and seek out more aggravation. I work better with a carrot than a stick -- the inspirational posts here are much more inspiring than the idiocy that's out there. I already know this works for me. Let them figure it out -- or not.

                        I think I will just stick to my sparkpeople safety zone, the paleo team, low carb team and my VERY helpful Thyroid Team (most that have lost weight htere are at a minimum gluten free- so they 'get it'). I will read my friends' blogs and stay away from teh scary dietitian

                          I hear ya. I cringe when people "demonize" things around here. It's usually grains and that ain't no way to use a poor Daemon's name. Thank you very much.

                            I left behind a fairly CW weight loss message board a while ago... there were some fun people there, but it was probably raising my cortisol more than I'd like.

                            Lately I've been able to lurk on generically low-carb forums looking for recipe ideas and inspiration, and just ignore the crazy frankenfoods they tend to use. That used to bother me a lot more. So maybe I've finally gotten to the point where I could read general weight-loss forums and not want to tear my hair out or shove bacon down their throats. =]

                            I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

                              Well, I couldn't very well say it is driving my NUTTY...lol. Hmmm, maybe it is making me bonkers? Better?
