    Any health nuts or trying to be healthy nuts out there? I love to talk about healthy food and supplements and work outs and all of that stuff but I don't have enough IRL people to talk about it with. Also, I just stopped doing Krav Maga. So sad but I couldn't make the schedule work out. Anyway, so I started at Planet Fitness today for a place to go. So I don't really talk to people there obviously. Krav required a lot of people talk, teamwork.

    I've been trying to be more healthy starting late last year. I lost about 30 pounds before the holidays using a low carbs/low sugar diet. Whatever you want to call that.

    I'm trying to get back to that now. I've also been trying to limit my drinking, which isn't going very well at the moment.

    30 lbs is a lot! That's amazing!
    I was hoping to go workout this morning but instead I was sick :( So oh well. Fitbit says I have a little over 1700 steps so far.

    Oh I like this thread. Some of this is in the Intermittent fasting thread. I'm always vaguely healthy lol. I average 17,000 steps a day on fit bit. However, I do have 20-30 lbs I should drop. I have been trying to follow the low carb/sugar diet for the past two weeks, however, I got really sick in between so there were some slip ups. I am also trying to limit my drinking, but like @mboone73@mboone73 struggling. Since NYD I've only drank last Saturday night. I had ONE honey whiskey Wednesday, but I was coughing up a storm and hoped it would help - it did. This is way back from my 1-2 drinks a day and lots of drinks on a Friday and maybe Saturday. I've lost 6lbs - yay low carb and water weight. I'm always down to talk about it or recipes. I'm pretty much eating cheese, eggs and veggies at this point. I just order some coconut flour, quest cinnamon protein and swerve sugar replacement. If I want to maintain I will need some stuff to hit that sweet tooth I do get.

    My workouts are usually working on the farm, riding horses and line dancing. I used to love hitting the gym but I don't have much time for that.

    Oh my gosh so many things I love to talk about savvy! Ok first how in the world do you get in all those steps? Are you going for walks/runs or is that at the farm and with the dancing? WOW. I got 20,000 something when I moved my Dad and I really thought my feet and legs were going to just fall off. I normally don't drink but I just bought a bottle of SoCo to make hot toddies with and that is helping me big time at night to get over this chest congestion. It's so hard to get rid of but I think that and the oil of oregano is really helping the most. I am really interested in what you're going to do with the coconut flour. I have been making some fat bombs with peanut butter, shredded coconut, cocoa powder and molasses but I've never used coconut flour. I think I have a bunch of Indian recipes for it though in a cookbook.
    The quest bars are way too sweet for me but I've tried them.
    I actually am losing my sweet tooth I mostly don't have one anymore but when I do it's like for a day so strong. My favorite thing to satisfy it is Lovely brand caramels. drooool
    You've cut down so much, lost so much...I think you're doing awesome. Goooooo savvy. Gooooooo mboone!

    I will preface with I ate hooters last night, including french fries and fried pickles. I had two rum and cokes while playing cards. but I'm not sweating it! ( i tend to get eating disorder-y when I'm too strict) however, my brain is getting better about acknowledging when it is worthwhile to bust and when it isn't. I'm not about losing 30lbs in a few months. If I can do it over the next 12-18months, I'l be happy longterm.

    I'm on the farm before and after work, and try to go for a walk or practice line dancing at lunch. Then I line dance 2-3 days a week and walk the dog or hike. I just always try to keep moving. Stagnation is bad.


    i saw a couple of fat bomb recipes with the coconut flour. idk, I'll figure it out lol. I'm messing with that tomorrow!

    I don't love quest bars but I put a few in my backpack in case of emergencies. I saw a really good recipe for pancakes with the quest cinnamon protein powder.

    I will share recipes as I figure them out!

    So this weekend I made cheddar biscuits with coconut flour. Next time I am going to make them with Old Bay and they will be cheddar bay biscuits from red lobster lol. The man friend even approved. They were pretty satisfying, we had them with steak and broccoli.

    https://lowcarbyum.com/gluten-free-garlic-cheese-biscuits/

    I like kodiak cakes but I think they're still REALLY carb-y. i think like 30g per serving? with the quest powder it would be like 3g-5g of carbs.
