  • You, guys! I’m in love! With my air fryer! First time making salmon in it and it turned out PERFECT! I do NOT cook, too lazy lol, so sprinkling this salmon with seasoning and dropping it into an air fryer was perfect for me. 😍 (used Autumn’s method for baking this spaghetti squash whole too)

Buying take-away food is always more expensive and it is usually unhealthy, even a relatively healthy option either has too much salt, oil or some sort of sweet dressing. Every week I make my kids help me cook dinner. It’s so important they learn to enjoy making healthy meals for when they move out on their own. Learn to love cooking, it’s the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself.

I stick the whole spaghetti squash in my instant pot.. I hate having to try cutting it

Is anybody else frustrated with the lack of daily motivation from the DietBet leaders? My last dietbet was excellent. Maybe it’s my  assumption/mistake but I thought all the leaders gave daily motivational tips and encouraged discussion among the participants.

The DietBet with Breanne and Joel Freeman last month was amazing. They offered daily updates, tips, read and responded to comments, had giveaways and more. The host get paid to do this so they should earn their money.

Joel and Brianne Freeman are the most active hosts that I’ve participated in.. separate and together

Having a rough day. My wonderful, amazing son happens to be autistic, and one of his more challenging aspects is the fact that he functions on little to no sleep. It seemed like we were making progress, and then today we’ve been up since 1 am. My instinct is to eat everything in sight on these days, and now that I’m not doing that I’m dragging. Any ideas for food that helps with energy levels?

Sleep/rest is so important for brain function I doubt you can eat your way to more energy if you are sleep deprived. My energy levels are always through the roof when I strictly stick to a whole food plant based diet. Give that I try.

My son is on the spectrum and has sleep issues. Fortunately he doesn’t wake up early, but falling asleep can be hard for him. Hang in there and try to cat nap if you can.

Is it ok if I buy a new scale? Do I have to keep my old one for final weigh ins?

So buy that new scale!!. I bought mine as a reward to myself after one game.

Rebecca F.

Buy a new scale my old one would require me to change the batteries every single time almost and those got expensive so emailed support to make sure I could change scales make sure I wouldnt get disqualified they said as long as it was digital it was ok. I weighted myself on both when I got the new one to make sure there wasn't a big difference but happy to get rid of my dino lol

Oh darling, that’s no way to live happily. Go complex carb, not simple. Healthy fat (eg. Avocado) over animal fat and fruit sugar (don’t forget the delicious dates :heart_eyes:) over refined sugar and you’ll do GREAT

I am going to be having weight reduction surgery soon so unfortunately that will have to be my diet of choice. Thank you for your input!

  • Grilling gives flavor without fat. Trying to keep my plates balanced but I'm always going to want a carb!

Wow! That looks amazing!

Carbs are not the enemy. Complex carbs are of great benefit to your weight loss journey.

I havent been able to workout due to breaking my tailbone last week. But I have been sticking to UPF and have lost 1.6 lbs already! Nutrition is key everyone! You can lose weight without working out if you focus on nutrition! And when you combine the 2 the results will be worth it!

Weight loss is 80% nutrition, you cannot out-train a bad diet. All the weight I’ve lost have been without exercise. I slipped a disc in my lower back 7 years back, the reason for my weight gain, and it reoccurred month after month for 5 years until I dropped all animal products :flushed: I’m still very careful so I just focus on nutrition.

yep, i've just had a knee op and can't move at all much, and normally i'm a daily gym-goer, so i need this challenge as i've put on a few kg already since my knee packed up! It'll only get worse unless i focus on reducing the calories, but i'm confident i can do it even without any exercise.
