2023.04.01 15:33 crwood89 Is there enough poo in your bunghole?

I'm just wondering, because I hear a lot of people complaining about constipation while on Kratom but they don't even take 20gpd.
Well, I've been on a diet before and I know that the less you eat the less you poo and I know some of you choose kratom over calories.
Thing is, I'm actually trying to lose weight so I do eat a lot of fiber, 2 salads a day, and I toss more logs than a lumberjack. Even before my morning coffee, I stumble out of my warm morning shower and fumble more bundles than a drunken neonatal nurse. And i dont even measure my kratom but its at least 20gpd. I never do kratom before or during work, but when I'm home I drop more hot ones than a blind guy juggling flaming torches. I used to be constipated while totally sober because i ate too much cheese. I say that to say this: there is hope. Maybe it's not the Kratom.
P.S. I'm not a doctor.

2023.04.01 14:51 Thefreckledone89 Wondering if this show caused eating issues

I am rewatching the Zoey 101 on the paramount app. Really enjoying the nostalgia, but, looking at it as an adult, I can’t help but notice, the girls in particular only seem to eat salad.
Zoey tends to have salad, and then a fruit bowl for lunch. There’s not even chicken on the salad it’s just leaves 😅
There have been quite a few instances they make negative comments on food.
Macaroni cheese, zoey says nah too carby, and reaches for the salad.
Another episode three of the girls seem to not want to eat the slice of cake because there is too many calories, they end up eating two bites each.
Another episode they’re looking up the calories for a bagel
They’re 13!!!
I do wonder if young children or preteens watching this show back in the day, were influenced by the fat phobic must not have too many calorie comments 🤔 I’m only on season 2, I wonder if there are any more scenes like that

2023.04.01 14:37 GainsSloth [OFFER] For £40 I'll be your Personal Trainer for 3 Months

For the last 4 years I've run a successful online coaching business and helped hundreds meet their physical activity and nutrition goals. However, it's very much a second job, and not the be-all and end-all for me. I just enjoy helping people achieve their goals, whatever they are or whomever they are.
So I'm offering a 3 month package for anyone interested for £40. No more, no less.
What you'll get for that is a fully dedicated, bespoke, plan to help you achieve the goals that you may have struggled with in the past. Be that fat loss, muscle building, weight gain, toning or just generally improving their relationship with food and activity.
Objectively, this is what I'm offering:
-Resistance Training Programming based on your available equipment, tailored to your goals.
-Metrics tracker so we can continually observe the objective data that will help you meet your targets.
-Calorie, Macro and Activity targets. (Steps, Cardio, Gym targets)
-Meal guidance (I am not a dietician, I will not be writing recipes for you)
-Regular reviews to keep you on track throughout the 3 month period
It's important to note that I won't work with absolutely everyone. There are some goals that I ethically will not touch. For example, there are some disorders that I am not trained in and will refuse to work with.
To ensure we can work together I will send all those interested in working with me a quick intake form. This will ask questions about you, your medical and training history and more detail about your goals. Once I have reviewed this we will have a quick consultation call.
Only once all the above has happened will I onboard you and accept your money.
Once the screening has happened I will start to build out your program.
All you need to do during the 3 month period is meet the targets I set, follow the program, eat to the calorie targets and check in with me regularly. I will review your data, make tweaks where appropriate and support you along the way.
I will absolutely make changes based on barriers you face throughout the 3 month period. Do not hesitate to reach out to me midweek if you're struggling. That's what coaches are for!
Once the 3 months is up you have the option to run the program indefinitely on your own or stick around. Something we will discuss at the 3 month period.
Here's an example of the metrics tracker and types of program we offer:
For a copy of my resume, certifications and testimonials: Ask, and I will deliver. I'm not going to post this publicly.
Look forward to working with you all.

2023.04.01 13:53 Robert_TT Apple Watch says I burn 1200 calories a day, yet I still gain fat

M24/5ft11/194LBS According to my Apple Watch, I burn around 1200 calories a day, I work out 6x a week and have almost daily 10k steps, yet somehow I keep gaining body fat.
I did measure my BMI, according to the TDEE calculator, I should burn around 3000 calories a day. So my caloric intake on the cut is around 2450. Which I do track using Cronometer app.
Any ideas what I could improve here? Been sticking to this schedule for 3 Months now.
Strength has gotten significantly up. I bench 180 lbs 3 sets - 5 reps for example, and can do 10 pull ups with perfect form.
Should I lower my calories? Is the TDEE calculator wrong? I am looking to lose around 10-15 lbs, but I don’t really care about the numbers, would love to lose fat.

2023.04.01 13:26 Forsaken-Garlic4818 money diary: I‘m 28, live in Boston, make roughly $70k as a 👩🏼‍🏫 and everyone is ragey at work this week! (emoji-style baby)

part 1: net worth
positive net worth
category #shesworthsomething
💹 15,700 Roth IRA, not much but it’s honest work. I wasn’t able to contribute last year but sent $1400 this month. Don’t think I will max this year but will do what I can.
📱 1,400 457, not even sure why I contribute to this ($50/paycheck)
📈 25,100 Pension – cash value not super relevant here. 11% mandated contribution

➕ 21,541.24 Equity including both mortgages, since not including #2 feels disingenuous
NET WORTH: -45,672.46
part 2: income
Nothing exciting here as a public school teacher. My salary is fixed and the entire internet can figure out exactly how much I make. Next year I will apply to be a new teacher mentor to move over a lane (6% raise while I do the job). We won a great raise in our last contract so we can finally be paid almost as much as everyone around us!
This is my 5th year teaching but am on step 6 of 11 due to a full year internship.
read my paycheck and weep
pay schedule: 24 paychecks a year (NOT 26), biweekly Fridays with the exception of holidays and the final day of school, where you receive paychecks 22, 23, 24 and are expected to make that last late June through early September
each paycheck is different, so let’s do paycheck #1

📈 -322.94 pension withholding
💪🏼 -87 union power, baby

For those keeping track at home, my monthly gross is typically 5,871.66 and my net is typically 3,804.94
Why typically?

🎓 0 fed loans, thanks Grandpa Joe. I think this will be about $250/m when it starts up again. PSLF date late 2028
⛽ 31 YNAB tells me this is my average since moving to my house. Grateful to have big windows and a “put a sweater on” childhood upbringing – touched the heat twice this year
🔌 50 Averaged to include spicy hot summer months (it was 34 this month)
💻 39.95 interwebs
🏫 412.92 Private loan, paid biweekly (so if it’s a rare 3 payment month it’s more). The minimum monthly payment is something like $316, but I’m sending an extra $50 to get some benefit from the power of compound interest. 4.79% is not a make or break rate. Payoff 2034 but hope this can happen sooner.

👩🏼‍⚕️ 60 YNAB tells me my average is 60/mo, but this is overinflated due to an MRI in November that I will only have to do (hopefully) one more time. I’m usually at the urgent care or a specialist doctor 1x/month (this month: a UTI), so it’s more like 30
🪑 40 Hard to quantify. Since I moved in, I had a free couch moved ($200), bought a very nice TV ($750), a vacuum ($250), filters for vacuum ($30), and the world’s nicest washer ($1900). So YNAB is telling me a horrifying $400/mo, but let’s call it 40 going forward
🌷 0 I was a good urban balcony gardener, but no balcony. Waiting for a community garden spot, hopefully next year
🍉 250 Includes booze and small household things (TP, paper towels, dish soap)

🌅 gotta get dad to the ballet! 4.80
👯‍♀️ brunch with daddy-o before the ballet, I provide the tickets but he pays for brunch. his wallet is hurting because he only just got paid at his new job, so I kick in 20

🥤 my father requests a water bottle before the show. 6

🍉 make the mistake of dragging this poor girl with me to the postage stamp sized TJ’s. and it’s 5:15. one does not shop here so much as get in line at the beginning & pick what you want as you go. a tall person fetches me frozen arepas. I come in right on budget so I’m pleased. 57.52

Day 3 – Monday
🌅 it’s just before 6 and birds are happy, but now I am taking the 🚍 to work

🌅 hello, happy birds as I walk to the 🚍

Day 5 – Wednesday
🌅 please go away, very loud mourning dove
🍎 computers are charged, the youth are not. Mr. Insult has decided not to come to work today (probably for the best?)
🤬 is there something in the water?! another nonstatus teacher informs me that two of my students are talking to each other in the hallway and are not following her instructions which tbh is a day that ends in Y. important context: her instruction is in English and they only understand Spanish. I send them back to their testing rooms and she says, “when students ignore me and continue to speak in a language they know I don’t understand, they are being assholes” UM! GOODBYE!!!
😡 before I say something I regret I turn heel and inform my boss of this interaction. she takes a breath and thanks me for letting her know
😤 this is me taking a calming inhale / exhale before returning to staring at children
🏹 when I am proctoring (read: not allowed to read, grade, do work, browse the interweb), I like to imagine how the hunger games would go down if these kids were in it. the odds are in this room’s favor overall.
👩🏼‍🏫 these miserable youth are forced into a half day of classes, so we conference about grades and I let them have some free time
🏕 run weekly outdoors club for the youth. one student informs me a teacher refuses to sign a permission slip & doesn’t know why. make mental note to find this person and politely inquire. students make a great poster of images from our last trip and practice map skills
✌🏼 at 3:30 to get the 🚂 to then get on the 🚊 to go to 🤸🏼‍♀️ … it sounds awful but it all goes pleasantly smoothly, especially given how the T has been. class is great, lots of one-legged kicking on the trampoline. this is my 2nd week in a row of going from 2x class a week to 3x and it’s a tough adjustment. 0
🚶🏼‍♀️ to the 🚊 with M., who can’t make it to class on Friday – sad!
💊 the medicine I didn’t ask for but keeps coming has arrived. Note to self to call pharmacy and ask them to stop, but says 0 refills. Not a total waste because I KNOW I will get bronchitis again & need this. 10
🍿 paid for to keep my mother happy 15.99
🍴 eat leftover stew and 📞 my mother and best friend T. to debrief this very strange day
🎮 and 📖 before bed
Total: 25.99
Day 6 – Thursday
🌅 ahoy! Run into coworker D. on the 🚍 who gets coffee at dunks. I am feeling weak and acquire some 🥑🍞 3.69
🤝🏼 find this teacher who refuses to sign permission slip (who is also new). his reasons are very valid and we agree on conditions the student needs to fulfill to attend trip. hooray, adults being civil!
🤬 that’s it, something is in the water. two best friends in 3rd hour begin a heated verbal altercation about … a girl? in the middle of my class?? One kid takes off so I call security to let them know he would benefit from a check-in. the other student begins texting threats to his buddy and goes off on me when I tell him to stop. what is happening?!
👼🏼 boy returns with security at end of class, so I walk him to dean to process. 35 minutes later dean says everything is gucci and no more problems. hormones, man.
✌🏼 please get me out of here
💻 bill is paid 39.95
👵🏼 our weekly call (she is my only grandparent and is not doing well)
👨🏼 weekly call with father, who still likes his new job
🍜 leftover stew and Mandalorian with my 👩🏼 (we live text each other). finally, a good space battle!
🎮 and 📖 to decompress along with a long hot 🚿
total: 43.64
Day 7 – Friday
🌅 I don’t think I can do this today.
🧘🏼‍♀️ It has been such a frustrating week (there was another incident that happened that I can’t even reference due to state law/FERPA) that was incredibly traumatic and draining.
📱 to best friend T. and work friend R. to ask what they would do. Both endorse me taking a day off after this wild week.
🎮 and 📖 along with some stretching. 📞 with best friend E. to catch up on her wedding prep and life
🤑 payday! Good paycheck since it’s the 3rd of the month, but it might be missing hours from club. I won’t know until I see my paystub on Monday. +2,183.48 (+50 to 457, +322.94 to pension)
💸 ah, but it’s also the 31st. easy come, easy go 🏡 (1343.38) and ⛲ (167)
🚊 to 🤸🏼‍♀️ to a really 🔥 class. Learn the name of the girl next to me on Fridays who also brings her inhaler and it turns out we’re both teachers!
🍦 take a nice mozzarella sandwich home from tatte 13.97
🚊, 🍴, 🚿, 📖, 🎮
Total: 1,524.35
Grand totals:
reflection: typical week money-wise in terms of reflecting my non-house spending – I’m saving really aggressively right now and don’t have a lot of money for discretionary spending. Even if I did, I’m very much a homebody during the work week. My job is probably more stressful than most as a baseline but this week was truly unbelievably bad. Still, looking through the week and taking time to step back I realize just how quality my support network is and for that I'm very grateful.

2023.04.01 12:13 Human-Shame1068 My motz.

This is my sixth mozzarella - the fifth almost killed me and certainly destroyed my spirit, so much so that I didn’t make cheese for a year.
I know how I was going wrong but I didn’t know when- when it came to stretching my curd the curds would almost dissolve under the heat of my whey (180f)- the ph was to acidic but when it was accelerating, I didn’t know.
So I got a wiz bang ph reader and a year later - tonight in fact - I went toe to toe with 8 litres of milk armed with my new ph reader and a bottle of vino.
My milk is 6.6 when I add my thermo culture
My milk is 6.4 when I add my rennet - I let it rippen for 45 minutes . I then dice the curd into inch cubes and stir every 10 minutes at 100f
Now… here’s the bit I can’t grasp .. from adding my rennet to draining it into my colande cheese cloth combo, my curds at now at 4.9ph.
All the recipes I have read state the curds need to ripen to 5.0 - 5.3 and this could take as long as 2 hours. My curds have seemingly skipped this - why?
I use 1/4 tea spoon of thermo culture and have my temp consistently at 100f .
I calibrate my reader between use.
What am I doing wrong ?
I still manage to stretch the curd at that acidity (4.9)but I feel it’s not the ball park I should be aiming for.
I would love to hear some feed back from the pros.

2023.04.01 11:46 lilcookiecrisp I keep "last suppering" myself and it's driving me nuts - posting for accountability.

So I've managed to lose around 17lbs since the middle of January. I'd lost as much as 26lbs, but I've been gaining and losing the same 9lbs over the last month or so.
I've been following CICO (calories in, calories out) and managed to nail what I was doing, which lead to consistent and quick results, but I keep backsliding.
I know I need to get back on the horse, but I can't seem to get myself out of an eating cycle I'm in. It's not even a binge eating cycle, as I'm not eating the huge unhealthy amounts that I used to, it's just that I'm not sticking with the CICO or moving my body.
My problem is something I call "last suppering". I make a promise to myself that I'm going to have one last high calorie meal, or day, and then I'll get back on track the next day. Having my own indulgent last supper, if you will. But then I wake up, and my brain wants to do it again, and so I do it every day. I don't want to do it anymore but I can't seem to stop myself, so I'm telling you guys about it for accountability. My trigger seems to be whenever I have money e.g. pay day. While I grew up without ever wanting for food, there was a lot of emotional neglect and trauma, and I also watched Mum battle with her weight and the self-loathing it brought. One of my grandparents was very restrictive with food, and kind of did the same to me, when it became evident that I was going to be a chubby tween/teen unlike my sister who was always slim. As a grown up, I experienced poverty, and I think it's a mix of subconscious worries about scarcety, a lot of negative messages about food and about my body as a kid, and binge eating related to trauma.
Since losing around 17lbs I have experienced some amazing benefits. I can walk more easily and without getting out of breath. I love walking, and since becoming so overweight I'd missed the outdoors. I also found that my clothes all fit better, they were all loose, and I went down a dress size. My tummy wasn't bloated, my face shape came back, and I started to look like me again.
To compound things, I had a hard talk with one of my best friends the other night. We'd been out at an event and had a great night, and I was so happy to have been able to stand and dance for three hours, without feeling tired or uncomfortable. But, because I wasn't able to conceal my eating or weight gain from my friend, they started asking questions about how I was getting on and it all came out. Because I've become ill since getting so big (hypertensive crisis and type 2 diabetes, both now medicated) she's been getting worried about what might happen if I don't keep going with my weight loss journey. She said that if I was happy and flourishing at this weight that she wouldn't have mentioned it, but that she can see that I'm unhappy, I'm ill, and that I don't want to be where I am. I appreciated her honesty as it must have been a tough thing to bring up.
So, where we're at, is that my friend has agreed to bring me on a walk that I've always wanted to do, but which I'm currently not fit enough to do, due to its length and involving three hills. I just need to get to a fitness level where I can handle it. She said she'll support me and cheerlead if I share my successes, and remind me of all the work I've done on the issues that got me to this weight.
I am going to get back on plan tomorrow - a fresh new day - and I'm going to start adding in the other bits that I should be doing e.g. a little walking every day. I need to not get distracted by whatever is going on around me. I've decided on an easy, flat, walk that I can do each day. My eating plan and tracking is easy to jump back into. My bluetooth scales await me.
I promise myself - no more last suppering. It's time to do this.

2023.04.01 10:58 heyuiuitsme i was hungry when i wrote this

So, at the end, you know. When my house was flooded with sewage and i was sickened with an infection from it, well, i tried to straighten my life out, i had money, that wasn’t the issue
It was time. I needed more time off and the manager at work was being a real fucking cunt about it. The manager-manager was out with covid, so i couldn’t go over her head, or i fucking would have. I had all these pto days that had to be used by the end of the year or i’d lose them and she wouldn’t let me use my time without a dr’s note
And, i needed to go to the doctor, like no fucking joke. But, i had to keep going back when it wasn’t wholly necessary to get the notes, just so i could try to save my stuff from getting ruined with sewage.
I was just so mad at her, i quit on a holiday without notice. That’s how mad i was. Like, i’d been really clear with mgmt that i wasn’t real happy, you know. With compensation. Over and over all the fucking time.
Heather’s on her own at work is as bad as any union ever was. You know, idk, i advocate for myself in terms of money, or hours i need to scheduled, all kinds of shit. You know, i negotiate that shit.
If they’ll have it and if they want … well, have fun getting along without me and if you’ve been a dick to me the whole damn time i’ve been here, i’m going to stick to ya when i leave. That’s according to my work history
But, if you’re fair, i’m fair. You know. That’s how it is.
So, anyway, i was outside smoking and they were going over to wendy’s. I mean, you know. Still the best price for what you get. Five dollars. Idk, it’s still a real good deal. Idk, i usually get a #1, Dave’s Classic Single. Just the way it comes. It’s good. It’s a good burger.
And, wendy’s chicken sandwiches were my fisrt great love. Idk, i cheat on that spicy chicken sandwich with the asagio one. They’re both real good. I didn’t mean for this to be a wendy’s commercial. But, we were outside talking about it.
Dave Thomas is a popular topic of conservation in East Tennessee. Probably cause he’s an essay topic in 8th grade tennessee history. An oral report that we had to give about a famous person from the area that does a lot of good deads. Dolly is also a popular subject in these reports.
Like, one report every six weeks about different essay topics and you had to read your report in front of the whole class. In Tennessee History. Oral Reports. Essays. We did it in the 7th grade, too. But, you don’t have to read them aloud in front of the whole class, but you can for extra credit if you want to.
That’s how teachers used to do it, like everyone has to do an essay and then read them to the class. Idk, if they still do that or not. That’s how most of our class time in the 80’s was spent. Listening to other kids give reports.
I wonder if when my kids eat at wendy’s if they think, “ahhhh, mom’s cooking”
I swore off fast food like, the day before yesterday. Too much sodium. But, i really super love wendy’s food. And, arby’s. Idgaf what late night comedians say, arby’s is fucking great. These got these wraps you can can take to work and have for lunch. It’s like, you know, if someone gave a shit and packed your lunch. Those Arby’s wraps are great, and super convenient and easy to pack for lunch.
If you work 2nd or 3rds. You know. That’s how people do. They stop and get something that will hold over in the fridge. Wraps are great, all the fast food restaurants should recognize that market. I mean, when i was working up there, that’s how i packed my lunch like, most days.
Wendy’s salads or arby’s wraps. How 2nd shift packs lunch. Idk, maybe that’s just me. Subway, too. But, i can’t eat subway in my car. I probably could if i didn’t ask them to put so much stuff on it. But, i get leaky subs at subway.
Also, i need to stop spending so much on that, you know. So, i got these .. real food from the grocery store. Ugggghhhhhhhhh. I hate that.
It’s fine. It tastes fine and it’s better for you, it’s just not as fucking yummy Arby’s curly fries. Beef and cheddar add lettuce and tomato. Both sauces, horsey and arby’s sauce. That sauce on those fries. Omg. i shouldn’t be having any little cups of cheese, that’s high in sodium.
It’s about moderation, lol. In shit you should not be eating any fucking way, but i love it. But, now it’s a special treat. It’s 1:31am. Past time time either of those things are even fucking open. I wonder if Hardee’s is open.
They got great burgers, too. But, for real. It’s thoe biscuits at hardee’s. They have the best breakfast. When my sister was pregnant, i would take her to the doctor down that way. We’d stop at hardee’s on the way and grab some biscuits.
They’re all fucking good. Chicken, yes. Sausage, that one. Sometimes they got that country fried steak biscuit at hardee’s. I just about live for that. Omg, when that comes back. Way better than mcrib.
I think it’s seasonal. Or, something like mcrib. They don’t always have that country fried steak. Or, maybe they do. Idk, seems like there’s seasonal biscuits there. Cause sometimes they have that pork chop biscuit. Omg, good as hell. All those biscuits are always fucking good.
Expensive. Little bit.
I like to stick to the restaurants that have real sweet tea. Those are my favorites. Where the tea is good. And, pepsi-co subsidiaries, your tea sucks. And, so does yours burger king.
Arby’s does have good tea. It’s better than mcdonald’s tea. And, wendy’s. Both those teas weak and mcdonald’s uses too much sugar or something. Idk, i think they’re using some kinda liquid sugar. I don’t like mcdonald’s tea no more. That lemonade is really good though, it has pulp in it.
I’m starving. And, i don’t want my save money meal. I said i wasn’t going to doordash anymore. After i got the … suspicious food. It didn’t make me sick or nothing. And, they gave me my money back. But, you know. Left a bad taste in my mouth
Mostly cause i still can’t figure out where they hell it came from. I been showing it’s picture around. You know. In the neighborhood, hey, you know where this food came from. Nobody that live down here knew where it was from.
Then, I accidentally ordered a meal kit service in a scrolling accident. That comes monday, and i have to eat it cause, you know. I mean, i’m trying to save money. Ok. and, overall it was cheaper than going to the grocery store. But, that’s just an introductory rate. You know.
Tricky website, though. Scammy kind of, i mean, i was trying to see the menu cards before i ordered and accidentally ordered, then there’s no way to cancel until the trial period is over. I set an event in my phone to remind me to cancel it.
For serious, i thought it was the other one that i did want to order. Like, one of those, you don’t even have to cook the food. It’s just like, fresh food tv dinners you just put in the toaster over.
And, i was like, holy shit that’s perfect, but then, idk, i couldn’t remember the name, and also, it’s not exactly that, but that’s what i want, but i mean, this is a diet for me. Ok. like, this is the diet.
The companies that do do the exact thing i want only make healthy food. And, i mean, what the fuck, isn’t that fatty descrimination. I don’t want no keto or vegan or none of that kinda shit. Just like, you know. Like, frozen dinners that have never been frozen and made of fresh food that i can put in a toaster oven.
I mean, why can’t someone make that. I got some at the grocery store, not a lot of variety. Both of the ones that i’ve tried so far, good. Could use some seasonings. I mean, really. But, fine. Not as yummy as pizza.
So, i need a step plan to, you know. It a diet step plan where i will eat ever so slightly healthier, and maybe slightly less take out and fast food. It’s my new year’s resolution.
But, really i’m just looking for food that doesn’t suck for as cheap as humanly possible. Wendy’s is at the very top of that list. I still get those $5 biggie bags, too. Idk, comes with nuggets and a burger and fries and a soda. Maybe the 5th thing is a cookie. Idk. used to be a cookie and they wouldn’t let you trade your nuggets for a cookie instead. No, you can’t trade out any of the items. That’s how that works. At wendy’s. They won’t let you trade items in the biggie bag.
There’s an extra charge to put lettuce and tomato on your burger, but they will do that.
That’s the part of being a mom that no one tells ya, like, having to explain fast food restaurant policies to toddlers. That’s the best. It’s like customer service, but if you had to live with the karens. Those four for fours. That’s how my kids graduated from happy meals. Like, idk, i’d ask them that or a happy meal and they’d be like, four for four.
Rather have the nuggets than a toy.
They’ll let you alter the topping on the burger. It comes with mustard, ketchup, onion, pickle, bacon, and cheese. You can take anything away from that or you can add lettuce and/or tomato
Those are wendy’s rules. I can’t help it. Omg, it has mayo on it. Sorry, it’s mayo and ketchup, not mustard and ketchup. Yeah, i’m the car with the particular ass burger order. That’s probably all of them, idk about everyone else, but i’m always adding shit that don’t come on it or taking stuff off.

2023.04.01 10:12 28dnwjxuqwue77 Made up a recipe for 63 calorie banana muffins from steel cut oats & loved it. Will try without choc chips next time to make it even more volume eating friendly. Any other ideas from you all to tweak?

Made up a recipe for 63 calorie banana muffins from steel cut oats & loved it. Will try without choc chips next time to make it even more volume eating friendly. Any other ideas from you all to tweak?
Used spray margarine to coat thr muffin pan so they wouldn't stick. Just mixed up with hand mixer cooked steel oats (243 grams) with Unsweetened cashew milk (.25 cup), 3 tbsp oat fiber, 118g banana, .5 cup egg whites, 2 tbsp PB2, 1 tsp each of baking soda and powder. 2 tbsp of swerve brown sugar sweetener. 40g lily's chocolate chips and 2 tbsp Jordan's skinny syrup (mocha chocolate). I think I'll just skip the chocolate chips next time as those add more calories than I thought. Any other ideas from you all to tweak? These were delicious. I was so proud and impressed, so just had to share!

2023.04.01 08:14 No_Temporary2732 How to get enough calories in as a vegetarian

Stats - 6'3" 28M
So, i have been practicing IF for a while, around a month. Did so previously from June to September last year and went down from 145 kg to 113kg before a major injury forced me to be out of the field for 6 months. Long story short, no IF, steroid medications, all led to ballooning back to 135.
a major fuck up on my part with a woman i love during that time, and the realization of the fuckup back in mid feb led to a bad bout of depression, from where i decided to make major changes in my life. Back to IF for a month now, getting physiotherapy, facing my mental health problems face on, meditating, restarting walking and exercise, and the big part, becoming a vegetarian
now the problem is, my diet is mainly whole grains, steamed veg, sauteed mushrooms, and cottage cheese / tofu. The problem is, doing OMAD and 18:6 , i am struggling to fit in even 600 calories daily. great drop in weight (135 to 122), and I feel happier knowing i am not killing animals to feed myself, but i am worried for the future and the toll it could have on my body from the drastic loss of 13kg in a month and more going forward.
So vegetarians, help a brother out. What are your meals like, how do you reach the 1200 threshold.

2023.04.01 08:07 ramengirl88 Not hitting the deficit makes me feel bad

Ate around 1900 calories today which definitely is not my goal of 1700.. can’t help but feel disappointed in myself. And of course these feelings arise with thoughts of loneliness. If im honest to myself I want to lose weight and find someone who is attracted to me. I’m 24 and have never had that ever. I’m in grad school as well and wish I had a friend group to be /close/ to. Everyone is nice but I have no go-to person at school. I started cutting calories 3 weeks ago but today I’m really feeling sad I can’t be at a lower weight already and have a different life… In good news this is the longest I’ve ever kept to sticking to the deficit. Trying to stay on the wagon this time

2023.04.01 07:07 SouthBasic Abs and weight gain

Hello there,
I've been going to the gym on and off for about three years now. I have had very good success in building a physic I am happy with. I am very lean for my build weighing in at 160 pounds while my height is 6 feet. I have been trying to put on weight for a while now but it seems I can't have it stick. This is mainly due to large amounts of cardio, I ran my first-ever marathon last year and the calories burned were very hard to outeat. Is it there any way I can keep attempting to gain more weight while continuing my running? For reference, I run 4-5 times a week from 5-15km depending on what events im training for but that number can be even more.
Also for weights, I do PPL and 2 rest days (I still run on rest days). Due to lower back pain, I have been trying to implement more core exercises into my workouts. What days should I try to implement core? For my weight days+ and running im already spending 2-3 hours in the gym with 15min warmup, 45min-1hour of weights, 30min-1hour running plus 20 minutes of stretching afterward. I don't run on leg days and find it quite difficult to focus on the core after as leg day is a big day for me. Any comments and recommendations are welcome and appreciated!

2023.04.01 06:57 Prior-Perception9521 Food hyper-fixation thread

Curious to hear what everyone’s current food hyper-fixation is (if you have one). Mine is chocolate chip ego waffles. I’ve been eating them everyday for 3.5 months now and I keep waiting for them to stop hitting but they haven’t yet 🤤 Before this I had a big string cheese phase where I was eating 3-4 sticks a day for a few months. Sometimes I love having food obsessions because it’s nice to not have to think about what to eat, but also sometimes I feel so weird to be wired this way.
