  • Shade, good on you for quitting smoking! You might want to check this out: Inhalation of vapor from black pepper ex... [Drug Alcohol Depend. 1994] - PubMed - NCBI

    If you do want to try black pepper essential oil to help kick the habit, be sure you get therapeutic grade certified pure essential oil. That way you won't get any of those sneaky ingredients in it!

      I'm just barely 5'6" on a good day, 5'5" on normal days, lol, and I have a very slight build... the only part of me that's considered above average is my bust (smallest I've ever been is a 34C) LOL! I really appreciate your suggestions and it's entirely possible that I should throw out my scale... buuuut, I've done the math for body composition and my weight with 18 to 24% body fat puts my final weight at 118-125 lbs... I set my first soft goal to 130 lbs because that seemed achievable by my 30th birthday on May 8th. (Note: it's primarily about my health, with the bonus of fat loss!) But I still believe weighing myself less often will probably help, so your advice is not going unheard!

      That black pepper oil...I'm gonna have to give that a shot! Thank you so much for recommending it!

      • Hey Shade, I'm the same height as you (just a hair over 5'6" everyday though ). I have kind of an athletic structure (broad shoulders, wide rib cage), but have never been muscular. I have a very small bust, and up until a couple of years ago, 115-118 lbs was my average very thin and non-muscular weight. I would suspect that your "ideal" weight is probably higher than mine, though I don't know heavy breasts are! I'm probably around 125 lbs now, no idea what BF %. I'm working on becoming more active to get the physique I've been looking for and I've found that's been really positive for my self-image too. I don't worry so much about how I look, just how I feel .

          Thank you NamelessWonder! Yes, you're probably very correct. I'm trying to focus on just how I feel and look in a mirror without a number attached to it and I'm happier with my body than I was 5 months ago. I just had my heart set on achieving a goal by 05/08, however I just don't see that happening seeing as how my weight has stalled out at 142-143lbs for about two weeks... no diet changes, nothing. Except I've increased my exercise to include daily walks and now some light jogging around the neighborhood. Hopefully my body will get back on track!

          • I disagree with the statement about men being more dedicated and strict. My husband indulges every day on little apple pies with his coffee and on weekends, he drinks rum and cokes. I have been very strict and have not lost any weight or seen anything significant since I started in Sept 2012. I lost 15 lbs in 2 months, and haven't seen any movement since. No starch, no sugar, I even try to limit some of the veggy intake to keep the carbs down. I am 49, I haven't had any pre-menepausal symptoms, I have no medical conditions, so it can't be blamed on hormones or a lack of dedication!

            • Hi, I've spent the last several days lurking, and wanted to jump in. I came to MDA by way of WheatBelly. I've been wheat free for over a year, after spending my entire life with IBS issues that have gone away since becoming wheat free. I've also lost 16 pounds and feel better mentally and physically. Now I'm working on removing the crap from my diet and getting stronger.

              I'm 58, married for 30 years to a great guy, and as you can tell by my handle, live on a farm in SW MO. Look forward to getting to know you all better.

                    • Well, here I am! I'm 33 yr old 5'5'' 155 with and athletic fat covered build. I have this lovely fat belt that connects my love Handles to my gut. I've been primal for 3years. For the past 1:5 yrs I've been on a primal form of gaps for my fucked gut. It's still not fully healed but getting there. Truth be told I had one summer of out of control gluten free grain filled cheating and I lost about 10 lbs, then gained it back. I'm now 100% compliant, but I have a wine problem. Also I don't eat organ meat, could that effect me? Honestly, I have a weight problem even being primal which sucks because everyone sees what I eat and thinks that's why I'm fat. Hearts.

                        • Welcome Me2, We've conversed before about GAPS. I'm not doing it now but I have incorporated some of the GAPS principles into the way I'm eating. I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's so I tried the paleo autoimmune protocol which is similar to GAPS, it drove me kind of crazy, there were so few things that i could eat, I was always hungry. In addition everyone is always saying how you shouldn't go low carb if you're hypothyroid, well it's darn hard to get enough carbs on the paleo AP. I've come to the conclusion that I can't eat such a restrictive diet w/o some sort of guidance. I'm keeping my eyes open for an affordable health care practitioner to help me figure out how to deal with the Hashi's.

                          • Yeah, I have hashimotos too, which is probably part of my issue. I do try to keep my carbs up, sometimes that means a bit o honey and fruit, though nothing excessive. I've I ate some potato salad 2 days ago and it was super bad, I still have some gut work to do, so gaps it is. Tell me if you get some good info on the hashimotos

                            • I think it's quite easy to get adequate carbs being paleo. Eating tubers (sweet potatoes), squash (pumpkin, etc), and fruit in addition to veggies will definitely get you there.

                              But, there's "low carb" and then there is "low carb" (or VLC -- very low carb). I think that it's fine to be "low carb" (less than 50% of calories from carbohydrates), and yet still having carbs as the "foundation" of your diet such as the 40 (carbs)/30 (protein)/30 (fat) version of paleo.

                              It's really just a matter of how you balance it out.
