  1. I've noticed that as I've been eating healthier, most of the month I feel full and fine with what I have been eating. During my period though, I want to eat ALL THE THINGS!!!! I never feel satisfied. I'm having trouble controlling my eating habits during this time. Do you have any suggestions on how to control eating during this time? I'm completely new to healthy living and I"m having trouble managing this. I would appreciate any advice.
  2. For the first challenge of 2016, I’ve decided to tackle my biggest struggle head-on, improving my food habits and my relationship with food. This challenge will involve the first stage in the battle plan to tame my Sugar Dragon; another Whole30. Yep. You can’t call your challenge “taming a dragon†without everyone’s favorite cat-bat-dragon gifs. It seemed to fit, considering my struggles during the holidays, and admittedly, even before. I realize that I just recently completed a Whole30 in September. I struggled through it and did my best to do a slow roll reintroduction, then mi
  3. Hello fellow rebels, I just started yesterday with the "mostly paleo" plan (only "mostly" because I try to eat vegetarian and legumes are a pretty big part of my diet). I've been eating mostly real food for a while, but I've been eating a LOT of carbs in grain form (mostly oats, quinoa, and whole wheat wraps.) Yesterday I was fine. Today I was fine until around lunchtime; since then I've been inhaling everything I can get my hands on. It's a mix of being genuinely hungry and cravings (my kingdom for some oatmeal). I've kept it to just veggies and protein, but I feel like I'm eating mas
  4. Here we are again, at the beginning of another adventure!! This is one of my favorite times of the year (Autumn and Halloween) so it's time to really take my fitness goals by the horns and ride them to the ground. Really have to get this challenge right this time so why not pick a great theme to go along with it. This time I'm going with another book theme but this one has WAAAAAAY much more source material to play with/have fun with. And the winner is: For those that don't know, the Dresd
  5. Main Quest - Weigh Less than 160 lbs by 3/27/2015 From - this lovely artist, minionslayer Dungeon Map = GMB's Elements Any explorer or potential hero needs to know where she is and where she's going. She needs a plan, or you might say a map. Luckily, this hero stumbled across an excellent plan from Gold Medal Bodies called "Elements". It focuses on helping explorers develop "physical autonomy", which they describe as a balance of strength, flexibility, and motor control using a familiar symbol given to us by the goddesses. I want to move well, and I'm sick of reps and sets, so this
  6. So this pretty much is my first post here and not as a lurker. I need some help with some issues I've noticed that keep cropping up which is sabotaging my weight loss goals. Some background on myself: I'm 5'2'', weigh anywhere from 140-150lbs (stopped weighing myself long ago as I became too obsessed), my bodyfat was 19% but has gone up to about 21% because of having a Fleur De Lis with ab repair done 7 months ago and have just been laying around but within the last few months have I been able to slowly get back into working out. I wear a size 4-6 jeans depending on the maker. My biggest size
  7. Hermione was an excellent muse for me last challenge, so it seemed wise to continue in her footsteps. There are some big changes coming up for me. I'm moving half way across the country in 3 weeks to an entirely new place for the next phase in my training. There is a lot of packing, orienting, and studying that need to happen. I do not want to use that as an excuse to lose all the momentum I have re-established, but I also do not want to slip into my perfection-or-total-failure, black-and-white mindset. My health is a long journey (like studying magic) that I will continue to pursue despi
  8. If I had to choose the character in literature that I most identify with, it would be Hermione Granger. I was a frizzy haired, smarty pants who spent more time with books than other people for a large part of my school years. I’ve been called a goodie-two-shoes, a brown-noser, bossy, and many other things I wouldn’t type in pleasant company. I didn’t come from “pure bloodâ€. But I will learn and dare almost anything to move forward and help my friends. The Harry Potter series has been reminding me to play to my strengths as I approach some big challenges – moving across country,
  9. Main Quest - Establish a Craving-Control Habit In more nerdy terms, I'm hoping to learn how to run from the black riders that plague my quests (black riders = cravings)! Previously, I focused on what and how much I eat. This has not sustainably changed my choices around food. I want to shift my focus to my habits around food and cravings. Writing has always been a powerful tool for me to explore my life. My words are more meaningful to me than numbers and naked data. Here's what I'm hoping to accomplish in terms of daily goals (hopefully establishing new habits). Notice - I will pay a
  10. Ok so what can I say? How about a little fact profile... Height: 5'4 Weight: 10st 4lb Ideal Weight: 9st What I Am going to do to get there: eat more fruit and vegetables, exercise at least three times a week, keep this thread updated every day to keep track on my progress ​Challenge started: 12th March 2015 Well there's my life in a nut shell. Since moving into my own place this year I've gone from 9st 8lb to that and obviously I'm not happy about it! Ideally I want to get fit and loose weight but motivation is an issue. I just come in from work so tired! Oh, I work as a groom on a horse
  11. Hello there! It sounds so silly, but when faced with the question "what one thing is holding you back from completing your main quest?" I realized that I eat pretty well for my height, build, and fitness regime. The only thing that I'm finding difficult is cutting down on the chocolate! I think that these cravings are psychological but I'm finding it impossible to slay them. Its like a game boss that's really, unbelievably difficult to take down, and if I could take down only one of my demons right now - if I was only able to cross off one quest at all - it would be this one! If I go a day w
  12. So, the last few days I've been getting really REALLY bad cravings for food, any food, but particularly junk, and particularly sweet things, in the evenings. I haven't changed my diet at all, so I have no idea where they've come from, but it's really pissing me off. Diet is almost entirely paleo. I typically eat soup and salad for lunch, then a big meal with meat and plenty of vegetables in the evening. I don't usually eat breakfast, partially because of the benefits of intermittent fasting, and just because eating first thing in the morning makes me nauseous. It's weird though, I'm only suf
  13. Some days I want to eat. I mean I really want to eat. Over the last 48 hours or so, I have desperately wanted to scarf down an entire pizza, followed by a ginormous banana split and some deep-fried stuff (I don’t even care what the stuff is, as long as it’s deep-fried. Maybe a deep-fried banana split?) I’m not necessarily hungry (the craving has been almost constant, even right after I've finished a meal)I’m eating plenty of fats (in the form of almonds and avocados)No refined grains or sugars that could be jacking up my insulinI’m not particularly depressed or stressed or angry --
  14. So, day one of this fantastic journey of self discovery, working towards greater fitness, and trying to eat healthier. One of my three minor quests was to make a real effort to cut down on my sugar intake. I'm a sugar junkie - I literally crave the stuff. I realize that it's bad for me and that the more I consume, the more I crave sugar. But....it's just so dang tasty! But I'm motivated by my desire to get more fit and to try and ultimately, reduce my chances of developing diabetes as I get older (it runs in my family). But I have to be honest, this first day has been sheer hell. This mor
  15. Hello fellow rebels! Not all of us are including a diet/the paleo diet in our challengs, but I know lots of you are! If you've gone cold turkey like me or maybe been at it for a while, I'm sure there's some things you miss. Be it milk chocolate, mashed potatoes or beer. There are quite a few ways to circumvent those things, but none of them really are "the real deal". Well, screw the real deal! You are all clever and creative, let's turn dishes we miss or crave into paleo-goodness! I personally love cooking, and what makes it easier for me to eat only paleo is that I can be creative on
  16. Hey all, My names Chelsea. I've tried 3 separate times to change my diet to Paleo in three different ways and I last about 4 days before I give up again. I can't figure out why. I give in to my cravings so easily it's pathetic. I'm really looking for someone to pull me through this and help me stay committed and dedicated. I could really use the advice and the companion. I run cross country and track and currently have a fractured tibia. I'm not allowed to exercise so I feel like it's the perfect time to concentrate on changing to Paleo but I absolutely need help. Anybody out there? Let me k
