I didn't say it was ALL bullshit. I said I'm over people using "detox" to sell their crappy products, especially when they have NO CLUE what they're talking about. Yes, it's good to eat healthy and yes, some people have intolerances but there are some unethical shillers of crap products who will get up on a soapbox on how EVIL these foods are for EVERYONE and how EVERYONE needs to detox using their products. Usually very expensive products. I'm all for natural good healthy approaches like exercise and whole foods. I'm against sticking pearls in your vajayjay or drinking pink shakes that cost beaucoup bucks.

Detox isn't complete bullshit. I was in treatment for a pretty bad disease a couple of years ago, and as the bacteria was being killed off, several MDs (legit medical doctors) told me how important it was to detox and flush that shit out of my system. But you're right that you don't need fancy powders and such. Drinking tons of water, especially lemon water, works the best. There were also a couple of supplements that were recommended that helped. Widely available supplements, not pyramid scheme stuff. Many doctors, including the infectious disease specialist and gastroenterologist, also strongly recommended eliminating gluten and dairy. I don't have any allergies, but both said A LOT of people have slight intolerance. And eliminating them will only boost the immune system.My gastro also went on about how gluten, like sugar, really has no health benefits at all anyway.

I'm so over the "detox" bullshit. Esp when it's coming from people with little to no medical training trying to sell their essential oils or shakes or some crap. Listen, if you have working kidneys, liver and lungs, your body can detox just fine on its own. Eating healthier foods (REAL foods and not crappy potions, powders and drinks) does make you feel better but it's not because you're 'detoxing' it's because you're taking in better nutrition. Avoiding gluten, dairy and other foods will make you feel better IF you have an actual intolerance to those foods, which not everyone does. Putting pearls in your vagina will not make 'impurities' flee your body. Stop being stupid and stop wasting money.,

I tried keto/low carb & for a year have followed tons of Instagram accounts who are on it, as well as accounts who do WW, count macros and count calories. Honestly? It literally doesn’t matter the diet, if they are consistent pretty much everyone lost a good chunk of weight and in the same ballpark. But what I am seeing over and over is Keto accounts tearfully confessing to cheating or falling off the wagon and quickly gaining double digit pounds back in a short time. The people who count points or calories seem to bounce back and get right back on track after smaller gains . I admit, as long as I count calories and nothing is off limits, I lose weight. Keto caused me to binge and feel guilty.

Is it me or does Diane Keaton play pretty much the same character in every single movie she does?

Doing a very low carb diet is sort of like running a car on jet fuel. Your body "can" run on ketones when you have no glucose in your diet, but it's really tough on your body to have to do that process on a regular basis. That's why the cravings get so horrible--your body just wants a break. Weight gain is triggered a lot by insulin and you can prevent the spikes in insulin by eating fiber and complex carbs. Fiber is your friend if you want to lose weight, but a lot of people avoid it because *gasp* it's a carb. That's also why a lot of people doing low carb get constipated. No way could I handle that. I NEED to poop at least once a day. I also am a weirdo and eat like 60 grams of fiber a day.

Why eliminate all carbs? Fruit has cancer-fighting properties, fiber, it helps hydrate you, lots of vitamins and minerals, things nutrition researchers are just beginning to understand. Beans are chock full of nutrients too. Eating moderate portions doesn't spike insulin levels. Beans in particular are broken down slowly, slow-release carbs don't spike insulin. Portion control makes much more sense than eliminating or severely limiting entire food groups. Sure, cut way back on low-nutrient carbs like white bread. But keep the good stuff.

First time to ever wear shorts out on jog/skate and letting them breathe outside of capri leggings felt quite nice. Learning to embrace my short, pale, and curvy and strong legs.

In response to a confession. Bike 4 miles to work 2-3 days a week (I live in phoenix). On my feet all day (retail) and average 10k-12k steps. Sometimes add a few miles of hiking. Yoga.

There have been some people on here who treated me really awful but every time I see a post where the person degrades themselves by calling herself awful names such as fat, worthless or a loser, I still push the (HUG) option. Nothing worse than feeling lowest of the low and like you're not a worthy, lovable human being. You are not fat, ugly, worthless or a loser. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy.
