Look, I don't expect any one to like me but I expect to be respected for my opinion as I will respect others and their opinion.. MY OPINION. Not trying to make anyone else believe what I believe.
I'm with Paula. If you can't play nice, get out of the sandbox.
Not singling any one person out, okay?
[QUOTE=Sue;1068629]Okay Ayla. Do what works for you but realize when it isn't. You should have a steady weekly weight loss at your size if it's working. If not calories may need to drop a bit.[/QUOTE]
And yet every person who comes onto this board asking about being stalled is told to be patient, it will come off.
And Sue this is about more than just weight loss, as I have also already posted today.
My health has improved a HUGE amount, and I am getting my life back.
What is better than that?
[QUOTE=Paleobird;1068628]Yes, teacher. :D (And I know you don't think that's an insult.)[/QUOTE]
And if they don't behave, it is off to the principal's office.
[QUOTE=Pebbles67;1068620]Shyloh, You are very welcome to hang out here. You may not need to go so far into the low carb side of things, however. Why not try aiming for Primal carbs between 50 and 150g as you have done today. If you are going to drop, them slow is a good idea. Maybe a more balanced approach to start.
Let's see, 1900 cals
100g carbs avg = 400cals 20-25%
100g protein = 400cals 20-25%
120g fat = 1080cals 50-60%
If you want to go the way of our plan right away, it would be...
HSIS wt 57 kg
If you take the higher levels of protein and fat you get about 1900 cals.[/QUOTE]
Thank you,for the warm welcome!:)
I'll have to think about this,(while I'm walking my dog) lol!
I wonder if raising my calories would make a difference,since I am so close to my goal? Maybe closer to Maintenance cals?
I'm such a newbie at this and I appreciate your guidance.
If,you were in my shoes...what would you do?
I just don't think its right, that the new people get scared off LC because of these trolls hanging around here.
I just share my experience, then get told by them I am wrong. Of course that is going to annoy me.
And being spoken to like I am an idiot when I have already said something gets me even more irked up.
[B]Shyloh[/B] I think that I would start with the more balanced approach that I based on the information in the PB book. You are new to this lifestyle and you work out a lot. Have you ever been obese or dealt with an eating disorder? It seems to me that people who have not messed up their metabolisms too much can do well on the PB as written. I have been obese most of my life and have a binge eating disorder so controlling cravings and retraining my body and mind are extremely important. Others here are doing ketosis for medical reasons.
Either way, keep us updated on how it is going.
Oh man! A lemon in a glass of water tastes good now! Even tastes kinda sweet! Yum! This will be my fruit fix for now
Ashley, that sounds delicious. I am having blueberry herbal tea with CO.
Speaking of tasting sweet, I never knew iceberg lettuce was sweet until I stopped eating processed foods.
