2023.05.30 07:05 lemonfloridagirlyyyy Previously done keto and didn’t work. What is the next step

So I’ve had a mixed eating disorder. Started at like 13. Starved my way down 75lbs. Was surprised at how easy it was but maybe it’s because I had such little carbs that food wasn’t an issue. Was only eating like 700 calories a day. Went from 210 to 135
Fast forward, maintained my weight then gained it. Then started working out and toned my body. Then liked my body at this weight (165lbs) with the muscle built but was still wanting to be 145-155 but I just couldn’t! I just stayed in my 160s I never gained the full amount but food was definitely an obsession being managed by cardio and calorie doubting
Then I tried keto. Worked for a month or two and got to 155 but then like this huge rush of binge eating came to me. Like I got so depressed. I would always think of food. I wouldn’t be able to go to sleep without binge eating. So I stopped keto because I was going up to like 170-180 and really hated my self. Then I saw a psychiatrist and now I am on a medication called vyvanse to manage adhd and BED. I lost all the weight. Now I’m in my 150s which is beautiful for my height!
But I still don’t take vyvanse some days and I wanna try and learn to eat well without vyvanse. Because let me tell you, food SERIOUSLY became an obsession like im talking about u could not do anything without obsessing over food then I would binge then literally wanna kill my self
Here’s what I think I did wrong
-would randomly eat stuff like cheese -didn’t do meal plans -ate a lot of sweeteners like *keto ice cream *quest bars *diet soda *gum -did not know how to get electrolytes properly -did not incorporate many fibers / veggies
My plan now, is to have a standard easy to make breakfast or meal prep a week before for breakfast if needed. For lunch just have 2-3 snacks. ANd meal prep all my dinners a week before hand . Incorporate veggies and meats and avoid sweeteners. And find a way to easily get my electrolytes.
Im always lethargic randomly. I HATE being bloated. I hate thinking of food and craving food. I wanna do this the right way. Other questions I have,
Keto made me constipated. Would a good amount of fiber fix this? Veggies?
How do I EASILY get my electrolytes in? I wanna prep everything and make this as easy as possible.
I don’t want keto to be a complicated thing. I wanna be able to prep everything in a day for every week and get ALL my foods and electrolytes easily just by grabbing it and going
I don’t wanna spend a stupid amount of money. I am willing to prep. Is this realistic?
How much of sweeteners can I have? I am okay with avoiding them but is a diet soda here and there okay?
Does keto really help with energy and productivity? I hate being bloated and I have a hard time focusing .
Lastly. Considering all this, should I even try? It did fuck me up last time I tried it but maybe that’s due to my stupidity. I just want it because I hate being bloated I hate craving shit I hate binge eating and I hate not being energetic. I don’t wanna rely on meds the rest of my life to control my appetite. I also wanna become more productive. I really just wanna have a good life and your diet is a huge part of how you preform. If I eat a lot I literally wanna sleep and do nothing and sometimes just wanna die from guilt and tiredness and bloating. Like it REALLY affects my mood. I wanna do so much. I wanna study, I wanna feel awake , I wanna have a good body, I wanna have a good life, I wanna learn to day trade. I can’t do any of this if I feel like shit because of my physical and mental state of my body. I want self discipline in all areas and it’s literally impossible if I don’t have a good diet.
If you made it thru my post, thank you so much. I just need help. I am a slave to food. I want discipline in all areas of life and I’m sick of living like this
For reference I am female 23, 5’8 and 150 pounds

2023.05.30 05:48 The_Alloquist [A Lord of Death] - Chapter 48

[←Chapter 47] [Cover Art] [My Links] [Index] [Discord] [Subreddit] [Chapter 49→]
The blade forging left Sorore exhausted, the failure left her frustrated, and the cold gave way to fear as the night drew closer. As day faded into dusk, she reflected on a morning that had been as full of ups and downs as the mountain paths they’d travelled. The very fact that she had been able to use magic, that it had crashed from the realm of fairy tales and church warnings into the very real everyday occurrence was already an earth shattering experience.
Then she’d moved water with a thought, seen monsters fall from the sky, and watched the paladins cleaving them in two. Her head spun with the strangeness of it all, the sheer onset of fanciful things blurring and mixing together with reality. She began to wonder what else might be true, of the fairy tales in the myth she had heard on the seas in her father’s ship. Of the old folk stories of Erratz, often dismissed as nothing more than old wive’s tales.
A new world had opened up before her, and she wasn't sure to be fascinated or terrified of it. Certainly the paladins didn't want any part of it, and they certainly didn't want her to be involved. And from everything she knew of the church scripture, they were absolutely right. She felt the danger, the power of the matter, and knew that it was only a small fraction of what it could do. She even felt a certain degree of fear towards the masked man in the black robes, as respectful as he had been as a tutor.
At least he didn't use a switch to reminder of when she had failed.
But even in the murk of her disquiet in that moment, she also felt a smouldering frustration underlying it. The knife had been hers, her project, her duty, and she had resolutely failed to craft it. Part of her shifted the blame elsewhere - it was a new technique she had picked up over the course of an afternoon. Efrain himself had said as much, even going as far to say that he hadn’t expected her to do it.
Now that was something she didn’t like at all. When people expected her to fail, despite all her efforts.
However, that resolution meant little now, given that she had been excused from the effort. At least now the mage had the basic shape to work on. She let her hand drift on the rough stone walls of the church. Thousands of individual perfections, many thousands of years old, the stone functioning despite it. Perhaps it would be enough, the basic, overall function, but she recalled all the pittances and channels carved in her vision of the knife.
She knew what was driving the doubt. It was curiosity, that sticking bug that clung to her, despite all her prayers to the contrary. She just couldn’t seem to shake it, despite the ‘assistance’ of church teachers when it reared its head particularly high. She had expected the snap across the palms from Efrain when he drew that piece of wood. It had been a relief when he’d tossed it over his shoulder.
The thought was an unworthy one, she immediately considered. She should’ve been grateful to the various priests and scholars who’d spent years teaching the twins. Some had even prepared their entire lives, just on the chance they’d meet the beloved Bequeathed. If they were strict, then so be it, it was for the sake of preparing her and Frare for their duties.
The church was once more a buzz of activity as people prepared for the night ahead. She and Lillian found their way to the altar, attracting only minor glances. The villagers clearly had gotten used to their presence, although some offered a respectful and perhaps wary gaze for Lillian. One of Frare’s eyes opened as they approached, but he quickly returned to his half-rest leaning on a pillar. Aya was still very much asleep, chest gently rising and falling under the furs where Sorore had left her.
Sorore sat on the wide steps, put her chins on her hands, and began to think. It was a rather dangerous proposition, considering her recent failure. She had a tendency to ruminate on them, and often her twin would find her staring plaintively before loudly disrupting it. This time was no different, as before anything but impotent frustration could boil over, he plopped down behind her back.
“Stop that,” he said, “I can hear your teeth beginning to grind.”
She leaned back to lie upon his lap, despite the admonishment she heard in her head about proper sitting position. His eyes were closed again, and she followed suit, letting the minutes wile away as night crept into the word. She was shaken out of this reverie by a loud pop and Aya’s yelp. The girl was both mid yawn and bright red as both the paladins and the twins turned to look at her. She insisted that she was fine, and took to straightening her clothes subconsciously.
It was a mere temporary distraction for Sorore, who was largely engrossed in considering the knife. Rather than merely wallowing in her problems, she was invested in its function. She could almost see the stone parting before her, revealing the source of that smothering cold behind the door. Maybe if she had tried one more time, maybe if she reduced the complexity of the form, then increased when she got the basic shape. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.
It was all of very little use. She was inside her head once again, at a complete loss of what to do. Maybe, within the grand archives of Angorrah, the answer was contained in a dusty scroll. Some offhand fact or technique of forging, long forgotten in the darkness of the shelves. But these were several weeks of travel away, and she wasn’t sure that she’d see the next sunrise. So then, what could she do to get them to bridge that gap? Just one more day, that’s all they needed, to hold out until the next sunrise.
Nothing. That was the simple truth of it - she was a lost little girl in a small village surrounded by terrible things. The thought was not a comforting one, and she wriggled, trying to nestle deeper into the legs of her twin. Aya by that point had come to sit down beside them, looking greyer as the dark came on. No wonder, for she knew she all felt the chill roll forward as the fog waxed in the night.
Another meal of common fare came and went, though Sorore noted that many soldiers were taking care with it. Perhaps it was common practice, to relish what very well may be your last meal. For her part she found it rather difficult to keep it down, the coming dread of the hours ahead offsetting her appetite.
The faces of the paladins had settled into that implacable, stoney cast once more. They quietly rebandaged their injuries, readjusted their armour, and set to sharpening their great blades with long deliberate strokes. Sorore idly thought that their sleeping faces were significantly more pleasant, if rarer to see. Thus it was that they crossed over into the late afternoon, where the light was quickly fading.
“I would like to take one last little walk,” Aya spoke up, “before… you know.”
The paladins looked up, their eyes twisting with barely veiled misapprehension at the request.
“My lady…” Lillian began.
“We can’t,” Niche said, “Not now. Not so close to dark.”
“Just barely outside the door,” said Aya, “Just so I can see something other than the church. Just to stretch my legs.”
The paladins looked at each other, looked back, and set their faces.
“Well, I suppose it can be accommodated,” Lillian said, “only just outside the church, and only for a few minutes.”
Her tone warned of dire consequences if these conditions should not be strictly adhered to. The children all collectively nodded and the party of five set out past the doors. The barricades within the church had grown in size and strength, at least as far as Sorore could judge. The villagers, under the supervision of the soldiers, had proven diligent in the daylight hours. She could only hope that it would be enough for the onset of the creatures, should they breach the church.
She had a dread certainty that it would indeed be breached, sooner or later. Though she hadn’t heard of any specifics, whispers of just how many of the things lurked outside were passed around. It was a small stroke of fortune that the windows were narrow and ensconced in stone. The last thing they needed was one of the flying beasts to crash through the glass.
The faint red-pink cast to the grey outside was beginning to fade into blackness as the sun shrank. Occasionally, the banks of fog would strip away, revealing the abominable silhouettes standing still past the wall. They would close just as quickly, removing any clarity, and leaving only the icy fear in its place. The remaining soldiers and villagers watched them with anxiety and exhaustion.
The garden around the front of the church was almost non-existent. Most of the flowers had been trampled either in preparation for or during the course of the battle. The only things left relatively untouched were the central beds around the side of the church, which grew produce for its tenants. Some trees still stood, showing minimal damage from the fog and its creatures.
The five ducked under the boughs of the closest one to the doors. The additional chill brought by its shade was a trifling concern at the present. The green, muted as it was by the overcast sky beyond, was a lively anchor in the cold, dead mists. Such was the comfort of the place that Soroe let herself lean back onto the bark of the tree and eyes drift closed.
The trunk was solid, a comforting sensation that seemed to offset the malevolence of the fog.
Enough so that Sorore began to wander the netherworld of half-sounds and sights that characterised pre-sleep. They all wandered with her, some staying, some peeling off, guided by their own demented logic. Little and less was coherent, but it took her away from the horrible reality of what lurked a few hundred steps away all the same.
She fell deeper into this other-state, letting the visions wash over her as the real world slipped away. Time became a mercurial concept, which led her to question when exactly everything had settled. But settled it had, into a hazy blackness which the eye could not pierce. There, in the distance, a bright ribbon of twisting warm color glowed. A piece of fresh-forged metal perhaps, the day’s task going straight to her head. Or maybe it was the remnants of another dream that day, one that was already a blurry memory.
From a great distance, she heard a crash, unmistakable in its ringing clarity. A forge hammer singing out a song of its own, for now merely a rhythm. It shifted in tone as it rang out through the abyss once more, adding progression, then melody, all written in singing steel. Sorore’s fingers began to drum out the sequence on her thighs as she felt it reverberate through her. Then, with a sliding screech, she was left alone in the half-dream, with nothing but darkness remaining.
Still, the bright memory of the song remained, and in the darkness another voice took shape. It was a deep, rich, and handsome sound, that spoke of a confidence of such immensity that you were convinced its wielder could do anything. Sorore had never heard the likes of it before, either on the docks, or in cities, or on the open waves.
“Come now,” it said, “this little thing is giving you trouble?”
Sorore’s eyes slowly open, pulling her from the dreamscape back into the dreariness of the real. Aya had her knees pulled to her chest, leaning back into the trunk. The paladins, tired but alert, scanned the endlessly shifting banks of fog.
Sorore had a fleeting impression that the answers were just beyond the pale mists. Maybe something would come through, parting it like thin curtains, and impart the inspiration she needed. Or maybe a whole set of schematics will drop into my lap from the sky, she thought with dark irony.
The vision was quickly fading into the abyss of forgetfulness. Perhaps Aya had shared it once more with her, but she was in conversation with the paladins. Not wanting to interrupt, Sorore looked at her outstretched legs. Past them were a handful of leaves that had fallen despite the summer of the valley, with a couple long decomposed to nothing but their skeletons.
She reached out to grasp at the leaves, looking at the yellow-grey veins that raced across its surface. The large ones spread from the central stem and the hundreds of smaller capillaries that interconnected them. Holding up to the sky, she screwed her face, trying to discern the details of this piece of nature. After a few moments of tepid stillness, the clouds parted for just a moment, letting a ray of sunlight lance down to catch their hill in its beam.
For a second, the leaf seemed to glow, shimmering like metal catching glare.
And Sorore had her inspiration.
With that, she sprang to her feat so fast that one of the paladins almost jumped. Both looked around with questioning and slightly alarmed expressions. Sorore didn’t have much of an answer - in fact her mind was going so fast that she could hardly even articulate the solution that had been revealed to her.
“The- the- the-” she said, snapping her fingers, trying to put words to the idea, “I know what to do. I need to find him.”
“Find who? The mage?” asked Lillian.
The fiery certainty of the thought sent Sorore tramping out onto the grass, leading to calls from the paladins to slow down. She didn’t bother to wait for them, consumed by this need to find the mage, the knife, to try again.
The forge was more or less empty, save for the few labourers packing up the tools and ferrying them into the church proper. With a furious set of questions, she gleaned that he’d vacated the premises some time ago. The paladins called for her to stop as she doubled back, but she couldn’, not now.
The scenery seemed to blur as she rushed through the church doors, past the bustling barricades, and to the captain’s tables. A somewhat perturbed Damafelce told the young girl that Efrain had been seen entering the door at the end of the church. With that, Sorore broke out into a run, past the altar, through the door and down into the darkness of the Catacombs.
She stepped out onto the sand floor, the members of her party at her heels as she tried to seek out the path to the black wall. She stumbled more than once as she felt her way along in the darkness, fortunately with no skeletal interruptions this time. Down the stairs and into the long corridor she came, the smothering cold increasing as she pushed forward.
As she had surmised, Efrain was there, just about to start whatever process pried apart the stone. The tip of the blade was raised, pressed into the stone above his head. He turned at the approaching footsteps, cocking his head at the lack of isolation. Sorore didn’t even wait for him to say something, instead thrusting out her head for the crude metal knife.
“ I know- I can- I can do it now,” she said, breathless from the long run from the surface.
Delicately, Efrain removed the metal from the stone, and looked down at her. There seemed to be a questioning quality to the look, at least as far as she could read the emotionless mask. He looked at the cat, then back to the girl, and then to the rest of her party.
“How?” he said, “ If I let you undo this, we may not have enough time to recreate it before the attacks begin.”
“Leaves,” she said, putting a hand on the wall to steady herself as her lungs complained, “it- was the leaves.”
“The… leaves?” he said, “ All right. Stop, take a few breaths, and start from the beginning.”
And so she did, explaining how she sat under the bows of the trees, the half-awake dreaming, and the skeleton of the leaf.
“I got it. I was trying to build the whole thing out myself, all at once,” she said, stumbling over her words, “instead of letting nature do what it wants. The metal wants to come together - I don’t need to force it into its final shape. I just need to build a- a-”
She snapped her fingers at the air, trying to reach past this new blank as Efrain regarded the knife.
“You want to build a frame,” he said, “and let the metal fill in the rest of the empty space.”
After a moment’s hesitation, he turned over the knife, hilt first, to the girl.
“Well then,” he said, “let’s hope you know what you’re doing.”
She did, or at least she hoped she did this time. Within moments, the metal was flowing over her hands like a cold stream, but instead of trying to sculpt it, she began to spin filaments outwards. Like the skeleton of the leaf, little veins of metal stretched outwards, stopping abruptly, and folding back into themselves. If it had been hard before, it was now brutal, the smothering cold dragging at every attempt to shape the material.
Hands trembling, sweat beginning to bead on her forehead, she managed to split the metal into dark fingers. All she had to do was resist gravity and prevent it spilling over the imaginary bounds of the shape. From those dark fingers, snaking vines spread out and connected with each other. Slowly, slowly, branching and arcing, they filled in the skeleton she’d created and fused.
The final product wasn’t altogether too different from what they’d created during the afternoon. The shape, a heavy chisel tip, tapering out to twin furls like a plough, a longer tang. Sorore, half blind by stinging salt, didn’t fail to notice swirling furrows spreading across its surface. She had no idea how she’d managed to etch those designs, or perhaps the metal remembered, just as the stone did.
“Well,” said the mage at last, “suffice to say, I am impressed. Now, hold it up.”
She did so, despite the exhaustion of her arms, the tip wavering as his finger touched its point.
There was a rush of something, extending over the surface of the blade, stopping just short of her hand. It was like a coat of mail had been pulled taught, the links aligning at the same time, snapping together in a regular structure. From the tip of the chisel, down to the tang, the metal shuddered and settled. By the time it disappeared under her grip, it was rigid as any steel tool.
The mage gently took it from her, holding the blade up to that little flickering light above his head. Flicking it this way and that, he seemed to find whatever he was looking for, and pressed the tip to the wall. Sorore, despite her fatigue, was practically exploding with excitement. She’d done it, not only conquering the task, but she was about to see what was behind those dark walls.
Then, before he pressed the blade into the stone and drew it down, he paused.
“Paladins,” he said, voice quiet, “it would be best to take the children back into the church.”
Lillian frowned and put a hand onto her hilt as she stared at the door.
“What?” said Sorore, aghast, “ But I-”
“No buts,” said Efrain, “we don’t know what’s behind this door. It may be dangerous, it may not. But I strongly suspect it’s not something you would want to see. Very well done, little one, but this is something I should deal with on my own.”
The tone of academic authority was not an unfamiliar one to Sorore. But unlike in virtually all other occasions in her life, she attempted to object. Before she could speak more than a few words, Lillian took her by the shoulders, her mind apparently made up. All three of them were carted up the stairs as barely contained rage began to bubble up inside her.
“Do you think we should…?” said Niche, gesturing to the surrounding stone.
“No, not yet,” Lillian said, “putting aside everything else, we still might need him.”
Niche nodded and said no more.
They had made a steady pace, overtaking half the hallway as the scream of metal on stone echoed out. It was followed by a grating rumble as presumably the doors opened. If the temperature below the surface was cold when they came, the resulting drop was freezing. The mist that rose up behind them whispered things in long mournful sighs as the surroundings began to buzz with what must’ve been magic.
Then, from up the stairs there was a long, terrible wail.

2023.05.30 05:43 Super-Search-5161 Weight loss on Adderall. Tips for maintaining weight while on stimulants for ADHD?

So, I was recently diagnosed with ADHD (inattentive type) back in December 2022. Was started on stimulants (tried Ritalin first and am now taking Adderall 30mg XR) and it has been improving my home and work life tremendously. The only issue is that I’ve lost more than 20 lbs since. I was 120 lbs then and am now 96.6 lbs. My psychiatrist warned me about this and instructed me to set a timer everyday and basically force myself to eat. I tried that except I’m having a really hard time sticking to it because not only am I not hungry, I don’t even have an appetite for anything. I only take my ADHD meds 4 days out of the week but it seems like I just always have no appetite now, even on days I don’t take them.
Treating my ADHD has drastically changed my life for the better except for this issue. Has anybody else gone through something similar? Does anybody have any suggestions? Is there any quick and easy meals that I could eat when I do take my Adderall to help me maintain my weight? Thanks in advance.

2023.05.30 04:32 mrspwins MSC Meraviglia - NYC - May 7-14 Review

Hello! My husband and I went on our first-ever cruise on the MSC Meraviglia earlier this month and it just occurred to me that it might be nice to post a review. Since the biggest questions I see people ask about with MSC are "how is the food?" and "why do people hate the food?" I thought I'd do a food review. Obviously I can't compare it with any of the other cruise lines, but we like to eat out and are willing to spend money on a great meal so that's what I am comparing it to. We've eaten at Michelin starred restaurants and typically avoid chains but on a normal day we're making spaghetti with meat sauce or dumping frozen garlic chicken pasta into a pot like the average American.
Before I get started with this, I need to note that I have been dealing with a health issue that makes me constantly somewhat queasy and have little appetite. While I've lost a bunch of weight I do not recommend this method. However, some days I feel better than others, and I had a couple of good days on the trip, enough to try a couple of specialty restaurants, but not enough to try everywhere I wanted to.
So MSC food is *different*. It's like when you go to Europe and the food isn't really unfamiliar, but you don't find the stuff you're used to eating. They don't really have fried food, they didn't seem to have bags of chips or candy. On days I didn't feel well, I ordered a chicken sandwich from room service. It came on thin-sliced white bread with no crusts, with sliced roasted chicken (not deli slices), tomato, and darker greens. The potato chips were hand-sliced potatoes and tasted like potatoes pan-fried with a little salt. There was a small side-salad too, again with darker greens, not iceberg or romaine, dressed with a little vinagrette. I got chocolate-chip cookies for dessert, and they were crisp and the size you'd get making them at home, not the giant size you usually get here. And it was all delicious! Hopefully that helps to clarify what I mean by "different".
My husband ate at Kaito Sushi by himself, and I joined him at Butcher's Cut and Ocean Cay specialty restaurants. He said the sushi was good, not spectacular, but at least as good or better than we get in our Midwestern city (which has a well-respected food scene). He liked it enough to eat there twice. At Butcher's Cut, I had bone marrow with parsley sauce for an appetizer, filet mignon and crispy fries for the entrée, and lava cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert. The steak was done perfectly medium-rare, per my request. I didn't try the sauces on the steak because it didn't need them. The scoop of ice cream with the lava cake was small but rich and creamy. Best, though, were the fries. OMG the fries were the most amazing thing I have ever tasted! I cannot express how much I loved them. Steak fries, perfectly crisp and lightly salty with almost a caramelized crust on the outside, perfectly soft and almost melty on the inside. If I could only eat those fries for the rest of my life, I would die happy. This was as good a meal as we would get at a higher-end steakhouse, and definitely worth buying the package.
At Ocean Cay, I had the crackling fennel salad (very good, and a large portion), the roasted lobster tail with bourbon vanilla cream and pureed carrots (very surprising and delicious flavors, not sure that I would have roasted lobster again) and crème brulée (large portion, very rich, so much that I couldn't finish it though I sure tried). I tried my husband's crab cakes - they were tender and seasoned fine for me but he thought they were a bit bland. His tuna steak was good, though. The waitstaff there were particularly attentive and helpful. Worth it with the package, though I got the lobster off the regular menu.
We are not drinkers so did not get an alcohol package. I got a glass of wine with supper at both specialty restaurants, but there were surprisingly few choices by the glass. They were both nice wines but I would have liked a few more options. BTW, there are AA meetings ("Friends of Bill W") every evening in the "library" - more a corner with some bookshelves - in case you need them.
We only ate in the main dining room once for supper. I would say it's like eating at a mid-range restaurant, maybe like a local chain. Not the best meal ever, but far from the worst. This is where you're most likely to find food that is closer to a typical American restaurant - they had meatloaf and potatoes as one option the night we went. Again, the staff is fantastic and are happy to give you more cheese or pepper or leave off the sauce, etc.
We ordered continental breakfast every day but one (it was free with our Fantastica experience). Pain au chocolate every morning, with fresh fruit! The only bad part was that I couldn't get a diet coke delivered with it - my husband ran up to the buffet to get some for me every morning. He said his coffee was great, though, plus he got big bottles of Sanpellegrino all day, so he was happy. We tried eggs and bacon one morning, but it wasn't that great. I had pain au chocolate with a little peanut butter and fruit the rest of the time and was quite content.
The buffet was big and very busy whenever I went to it. They had multiple stations for the more popular items, but I don't think everyone realized that. The pizza was, in fact, very good, but again it is not much like American pizza. The slices were large but had thin, flexible crusts that were not greasy and did not have tons of cheese or tomato sauce. There were pepperoni slices when I was there, but also white pizza and different kinds of veggie slices. The one closest to plain cheese was either pepperoni or one that had small slices of zucchini scattered on it that would be easy to pick off if you didn't want them. If you have a picky person in your party that intends to rely on pizza for their meals, please reconsider - it really isn't even like the Neapolitan pizza I've had here. They didn't have peanut butter out anywhere but they had it available. They had a grill section for burgers and hot dogs (I didn't get a close look, so not sure what else might be there but I didn't see chicken nuggets). They had lots of salad fixings and pasta salad and fruit and a rotisserie chicken station. A wide variety of tasty bread and rolls and real butter. Desserts were usually small - two bites - pieces of cake in different flavors, not necessarily plain chocolate or vanilla. ETA: We just put together a charcuterie plate with french bread and prosciutto and salami and fresh mozzarella and pears, etc a couple of times. Highly recommended.
The chocolate place served an absolutely divine hot chocolate with whipped cream, and the gelato was stellar, but they are extra. Budget for them, both in cash and calories.
My husband gained two pounds even though he mostly lounged around and he ate constantly. I'm sure it's possible to gain a lot more but the smaller portion sizes and dearth of heavy sauces and fried food definitely helped. Neither of us felt deprived at all.
So TL;DR: MDR food was fine, specialty restaurants better and worth the package prices, but picky eaters or fried-food lovers may not be happy with food options.

2023.05.30 03:58 ZealousidealWin3593 How do some people not feel hungry all day/forget to eat?

I have lived a sedentary live and now I'm far more active. My diet has been terrible at some points and is now really clean.
A constant throughout my life has been that no matter how busy I am in any given day, I need to eat something every couple of hours.
It baffles me when I meet people who say they don't feel hungry after a day's of work, or who simply skip meals because they don't feel any appetite.
Barring some sort of medical condition, how can they not feel hunger?
How can their body not ask for food every couple of hours? (not talking about full meals either, just something as small as a piece of fruit). How can they be so focused on work that freaking eating something doesn't cross their mind?

2023.05.30 03:27 allothemothsinmyarms Started metformin and spironolactone for pcos. I'm 32.8 bmi and 5'3". I really want to lose weight, how can I get the best results with these meds? What lifestyle changes would propel the weight loss?

I'm struggling to feel good about my body. I feel like I am built like a truck. I'm 5'3" and 185 pounds. I'm miserable when I see myself in mirrors. I was 150 ish which made me feel overweight already...but then I had a pregnancy in 2021 followed by a miscarriage and had gone up to 189 lbs during that. Then I kind of spiral and went up to 197. I'm trying my best to exercise and eat less. Honestly I feel like I'm using food as a coping mechanism for my mental issues. I have bipolar and general anxiety as well as pcos. I'm super excited because my doctor prescribed me metformin and spironolactone and my appetite which was usually really ravenous with intense hunger queues has seemed to go down a bit. However, when I get bored or uncomfortable for any reason I start to snack. I eat a meal then because my mouth liked the experience, I keep eating. It usually happens at night.
I have heard metformin and spironolactone can help people with pcos lose weight, but I'd like to know what I can do to help that along. Mentally, I fixate on food. I used to have an eating disorder and was 107 lbs. I constantly thought about food and that's stuck with me for the last 12 years. Now because I don't indulge in the starvation habits I seem to have done a 180° turn and instead overindulge and binge.
Physically, I exercise seldom but at least once a week I'll try to go on a walk or a hike with my husband and our dog. I know that's a pitifully small amount of movement. I just have no energy most of the time. Maybe I'm truly lazy. I work remotely so I don't need to commute or walk around an office, which means even less movement. I used to walk for hours every day but I was assaulted in public and have become very agoraphobic I fear.
Diet wise, I eat lost of processed foods and sugar. It's miserable but I believe I am addicted at this point.

2023.05.30 03:11 Sugasugaforlyf Ibs symptoms reduced on ozempic 0.5

Hi! I was having a bad day yesterday because of acidity and a bad headache and an ibs flare up due to severe stress of exam. Amidst all this, I decided to risk it all and start my ozempic starter dose of 0.5 mg. I was already on rybelsus 3mg and had a lot of side effects so only 0.5 injection was available, it's way easier to use that since I also have adhd and tend to forget stuff. My stomach was all acidic and I had a severe headache. Within one hour my headache came down and my stomach kind of tightened? My diarrhea stopped. I won't say my appetite reduced but my Ibs symptoms really came down and I had no nausea and side effects unlike when I was on the pill. I was able to sleep at night without much trouble.
Edit : I've started 0.5 ozempic as my first dose. My injection spot is the upper arm. I ate a full meal or 2 dry brown bread and 2 eggs fried in EVOO. When I'm without food is when I tend to get nauseous because I think my blood sugar goes wild without complex carbs and I got nauseous on rybelsus when I starve.

2023.05.30 01:05 bee-rosee Bloating + weight gain but NO motivation to work out

I’ve noticed that I can literally eat all day everyday and not be full up. I can eat a meal and be hungry again within 10 minutes, which makes me feel extremely bloated. I’ve noticed that my lower half has started to gain weight again, i’ve always been a slim girl but since getting nexplanon I seriously look pregnant lol. My appetite has increased so much, and the problem is I have absolutely no motivation at all to go to the gym. I’m trying to eat healthier to see if that makes a difference but because of my appetite I’m not having much luck, I’m just constantly hungry. I wake up and make a promise to myself to go to the gym but never end up going because I’m just feeling super lazy. anyone else having these issues?

2023.05.29 23:58 Zuchinnimuffin Does GERD come and go in dogs?

4.5yr old female dachshund mix. She saw a GI specialist in April 2022 for chronic poor appetite and bilious vomiting. Bloodwork was all normal. She was put on Hills GI Biome, which reduced the symptoms but did not completely solve the issue. In June 2022, the vet prescribed Omeprazole 2x/day and it went great.. About a month later, she tapered to Omeprazole once per day, then in Nov 2022, we stopped the Omeprazole completely. She continued on the GI Biome food and was doing great. She is fed 3x per day, with the last small meal being close to bedtime, and we have stuck to that schedule as much as possible.
About a month ago, her appetite started to decrease (prior to, she would scarf down her food as soon as it was offered, now at some meals she seems uninterested, especially first thing in the morning) and she started having occasional bilious vomiting again. No other symptoms. It is possible she may need to go on Omeprazole every once in a while for the foreseeable future? I will be contacting her GI specialist, but want some other opinions first.

Hello, I just recently got off Mirtazapine and my appetite has completely vanished. Has anyone experienced this and possibly have any tips to get back that appetite? I barely can stomach eating one meal a day now and im losing weight rapidly which kinda sucks. I was like this before taking the medication as well. I dont want to keep taking mirtazapine because it was making me so groggy at work but now im worried im going to go back to being a skeleton.

2023.05.29 21:27 JurassicPark9265 Eating dinner and dessert at the same time should be considered acceptable.

If you don't want your blood glucose level to rapidly spike after you eat a meal and then eat a dessert, and if you don't want the dessert to kill your appetite to eat dinner afterwards, why not eat them simultaneously? I occasionally do this and I haven't experienced any major problems from doing such. I feel like it should be more common and publicly-tolerated to do this, especially as I feel like it serves as a decent compromise between the two sides.

2023.05.29 20:55 Thursday_the_20th Particular food cravings?

Been on 15mg for a year. While I do have the normal increased appetite across the board, I have an insatiable affinity for baked desserts. Iced donuts like Krispy Kreme in particular. I could honestly eat them until I threw up and then keep going. I’m managing to keep on top of the weight gain in general by staying active and the increased appetite isn’t so strong that it affects my normal meals, but when it comes to glazed donuts all bets are off.

2023.05.29 20:10 FemmeCreature Low cost and energy meal prep

Hey Folks! New here. Been vegan for ten years, leaning more towards WFPB over the last year. I love to cook and cook quite healthy and vegetable forward dishes but haven't shied away from oil and also keep convenience items around for when im busy or tired.
Recently was told to go on medical leave for 6 months to a year for health issues. It seemed like a good time to really get intentional about health and go mostly wfpb. Unfortunately one of the reasons I'm on medical leave is I get very dizzy and can faint and I also get intense fatigue I can't push through. A lot of my usual meal prep is harder for me these days. My symptoms are also triggered by heat so being in a hot kitchen or standing over a stove can make me sicker faster. My usual fresh summer recipes require a lot of vegetable prep that I can't always get through. On top of that, due to medical leave my income is greatly reduced.
So I'm looking for some good meal prep ideas that are low cost but also low energy input from me and require less standing. I do have 2 instant pots and an air fryer which I use very regularly. I get cheap produce delivered once a week and try and get it chopped and in fridge saver containers the day it arrives but sometimes I can't get that done in one day. I have a small herb garden. I require a higher salt diet for my health condition. I do have a large freezer but it's full of pizza and stuff right now that I'm trying to eat less of at the moment so there is not a ton of space. I have three teens and make dinner for them half the week so I need some good large family meals and I also like to keep the fridge and pantry stocked with lots of healthy snacks.
Looking for any ideas on meal prep, low-energy recipes, shopping ideas, etc.
Tl;dr: I have more time but less money and energy and am having trouble feeding myself, help.

2023.05.29 20:03 moookitty Dizziness from not eating?

I’ve had a huge lack of appetite due to my anxiety being at an all time high and have really only been able to manage a small meal a day. This has made me extremely lethargic but I had a small boost of energy today and decided to do some cleaning. I pretty quickly felt dizzy and overall just yucky, and ended up having to lay back down. My heart felt like it was racing, too.
Has anyone else felt like this before when they weren’t eating well? I’ve never really had this issue before. I had a lot of basic blood tests done earlier this month like CBC, metabolic panel, thyroid and vitamins which all came back within range, so I don’t think it’s a deficiency of some sort.

Instead of being out in the mountains, I’m on my couch watching Grey’s Anatomy and randomly crying because my dog is going to die one day.
I know that I should be easy on myself and my body as I grow two babies and I am SO grateful to finally be pregnant but UGH… anyone else having a hard time being such a different person than you’re used to being?
