    One of the things I had to learn, in order to be successful not only with weight loss but also now with maintenance, is that I had to remove emotion from food. I no longer label food as 'good' or...

    I've improved my health over the past few years with my weight loss, but yeah I don't take things to seriously because really, stuff still happens. You can be the healthiest eater (whatever that even...

    The HDL caught my eye as well. I just pulled my latest blood work out (from last October) and eating a pretty standard SAD diet along with IF, my HDL was 69, LDL 97, total cholesterol 167, and...

    Ah, the infamous girdle incident :D They lost a lot of credibility when that all happened (it's a bit of a running joke on other forums). I didn't realize they wrote a book after the fact, I'd be...

    The MFP main LC group labels LC as anything under 150g. It seems like LC is pretty subjective.

    Finding what works for you is key. For me personally-my macros are all over the place within the parameters of maintenance and I haven't had any issues. I have high carb days and then I have low carb...

    Yep, I'll never say never when it comes to primal (I've tried it before in the past and am neutral on the experience), or any other woe for that matter. Who knows what the future will bring :) I do...

    As I get older I'm sure I'll have to adjust things a bit, but right now what I'm doing is working well for me, so it doesn't make sense to mess around with what I'm doing. My blood work has improved...

    I've done the primal thing and honestly I felt no different than when I eat SAD, which is how I eat now. I have no issues maintaining my weight loss or having good blood work panels on the non-primal...

    I don't understand all the science behind the hack, but the no fat thing is key. I just use a non-stick spray to cook my potatoes and go totally fat free for the hack.
