I know some of you in this group have done intermittent fasting, but has anyone done the alternate day fasting? I was just reading about it and wanted to see if anyone has a personal experience about it before I try it.

Not yet but thinking about it.

@VICKI — I had a colleague several years back who did that, but haven’t thought about it for a while. I may have to look into trying that. He said he felt it gave his GI track a “rest.”

Has anyone done any hormone testing to determine best weight loss plans for you? Did it work? What did you use? Or is there research to debunk that?

I haven’t, but I’ve heard of these and I’m intrigued. Curious to see if others can offer feedback!

Lani T.

The best nutrition plan for you is the one you can stick to. Psychology is far more a factor than hormones. Real life circumstances will strongly influence what is realistic rather than what is ideal. Determine your eating lifestyle based on incremental changes that you are realistically willing to do forever without resentment.

A quick search of Google scholar doesn't seem to show any research around the topic so my guess is that it's more of a marketing tactic to sell books than it is a scientific topic of interest

Remember, this 6 month journey is not just about losing weight.

It is about life interfering with your plans, which is what got you to the point of signing up for this game. How you handled the sidetracks in the past and the consequences....

It is about holidays and how you handle them. Do you jump off the diet cliff and lie moaning at the bottom OR do you just get right back on track and keep moving even if you overate at one family meal....if you can get the family to go for a walk after the big meal, extra points for you!

Do you beat yourself up over falling off your plan and wallow in chocolate and pizza OR do you forgive yourself and start again stronger (and start again faster than last time)?

You are learning and growing, it is all part of the value of the game....

PS sometimes you cannot make a perfect choice from the eating options but you can make a better choice or the best choice possible.

Sometimes you do not have the time or are not at the gym to do a perfect workout BUT you can find a way to move more.

I used to go the lonnnnngggg way around to the ladies bathroom for 2 reasons: extra walking AND avoided the kitchen with all the homemade goodies...

Be kind to yourself today and find something to be happy about and something to be proud of yourself about!

Yesterday I ate my body weight in chocolate. Well, not quite, but easily a kilo! I also had my parents stay, so the drinks and food was flowing.

Regardless, I still worked out every day. Some may wonder why, as it didn’t put a dent in the extra calories.

What it did do is maintain a habit. So now Easter is over (as is the *planned* binge), I woke up this morning to do another 45 min bike ride and back to my usual toast with jam.

Feels like less of an adjustment than previous years, where the binge would last longer and the exercise was harder to get back into.

Happy Easter!

Glad you enjoyed yourself! Great job on keeping up with your workouts!

Lani T.

Yes! That's so smart! Keep up the habits you can and plan around real life events. Easter chocolate isn't going away and your parents will visit again. Better to focus on maintenance during that time and keep up as many habits as possible. I'm sure it was way easier to return to all your habits once life got back to normal. Congrats, that's a huge success!!

So overall I’ve been sticking with my goals and had great success with the consistent 30 minute work outs, fasting and eating clean. I fell off the bus this week, and having a hard time resetting my mindset! How do you guys reset and get back on the bus??

You’ve gotten great advice here! Remember why you started. And how great reaching your goals has felt before. That’s what’s always helps push me back on track. You got this!

Lani T.

Keep in mind that you *will* fall off the bus and that the real practice is the act of getting back on. Remind yourself that whatever happened or whatever will happen, you have the option to make your next choice one that moves you towards or away from your goals. Take each choice one at a time.

  • If you told me a year ago I'd be drinking my coffee black and loving it, I'd have thought you were nuts.
    Today I treated myself to an iced black coffee.
    Pro tip: add a pinch of salt to either hot or cold coffee and it slightly neutralizes the bitterness!

Wow great tips! Going to have to try these! I still use creamer, but I’ve switched to oatmilk creamer. I no longer use sugar, so my coffee has changed quite a bit! Not sure I’ll ever get to black coffee, but maybe some of these tips will help.

Lani T.

Starbucks is known for being very acidic which can be interpreted as bitter by some. For those who don't like bitter coffee, in addition to adding a pinch if salt (it does work!) try to find a place that does European style brewing if you're buying it from a shop. Europeans don't like acidic coffee so the taste is much smoother than places like Starbucks. It also might seem counterintuitive but dark roasts seem to be less bitter.

I’m not giving up, but need recommendations on intermittent fasting. Does it work? Is it ok if our eating window is in the evening before bed?

I never tried IF before but I have been doing it now for about 3 months. I have lost about 30 lbs! I also do low carb. I’m super excited about it because nothing else really worked for me. I started with 16:8 and have gradually shortened my feeding window. I read Dr. Fung’s book but I’ve learned just as much from watching YTube videos. It’s worth a try! Good luck on your journey.

I have been dabbling with IF since last summer. Lost 30 pounds before starting this DietBet. However, I have plateaued the last two months and I know it's because I need to reign in the amount of food and tweak the quality. However, this is the first time I've ever maintained any sort of weight loss, either, so I consider it a non-scale win for that! My goal this month is to fix the meal end so I continue losing.

Looking for recommendations for a walking pad/walking treadmill! Ideally I’m looking for one that I can use with my standing desk but also is easy enough to move around if I want to shift it infront of the TV. Id like to keep it under $600 if possible. I’m also in Canada which makes it a little more challenging but if you’re from the US and still have recommendations please share!! 🚶‍♀️

  • This month I will increase my workout hours and not miss a day of cardio (may have to be a slow 22min walk/mini elliptical on exhausted days)

Great goals! And @Lani thanks for the reminder! Since doing these bets I haven’t allowed for many rest days, but I know our bodies need them!

  • Down 50lbs (22.6kg) since I started my health journey December 6th 2021.
    This is the longest I have ever stuck with something because it's actually a sustainable lifestyle that I WANT to do. I finally understand what everyone meant when they said lifestyle change. Never going on another "diet" again!
    Still have around 45lbs to go, but I'm enjoying the process and I won't stress on how long it takes (I know the last lbs to lose will be much, much slower).
    Congrats to everyone on their progress, no matter how small!
