    [–] Fat (Rant) Tuesday dimplezcz 3 points ago in fatlogic

    I had my first panic/anxiety attack while I was at work yesterday. Three days ago I cut my leg hopping over a fence (it wasn't rusty at all) and I convinced myself I had tetanus and was going to get lockjaw/muscle spasms. Queue the shortness of breath, sweating, shaky hands, etc. for about a minute. I was like 10 seconds away from asking my coworker to call 911 because it had never happened before. I eventually talked myself down, sped over to urgent care and got a tetanus shot and immediately lost the anxious feelings. But they started to creep in again after my morning coffee, which I definitely think is a part of the problem. Strangely my appetite was/is almost nonexistent yesterday and today, which I don't mind considering I ate & drank like an asshole this weekend.

    They don't go too fast, but I guess it depends on how fast you peddle! I didn't think the resistance was too hard so it was fairly easy. And thank you!

    Went out to the lake this weekend with some friends and rode this cool hydro-bike things! I felt like Jesus biking on water, and it was a nice little workout (did some kayaking too). I'm having some body dysmorphia though because I feel like my activity has been really high lately but I've been eating like absolute shit—and the scale is reflective of that. But I don't think I'm looking too bad these days! I'm on the right btw

    Idk, feels weird man.

    Also wtf is going on with mobile formatting

    [–] Whenever I find some potential skin care accounts but notice that they have a "non toxic/ non chemicals" bit in their bio [humor] dimplezcz 5 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    This is my biggest issue with all the ~holistic~ grain/nut/dairy/soy/everything-free Instagram influencers who have thousands of followers: they're demonizing those ingredients when the vast majority of them are safe and for preservation purposes. They wouldn't put the ingredient in the food if it wasn't necessary (duh?) And these girls act like they'll give you cancer and make you gain 20 lbs overnight. Sorry for the tangential rant but I'm in a ranty mood lol

    [–] What stupid things have you bought/recipes have you made because of 1200isplenty? dimplezcz 13 points ago in 1200isfineIGUESSugh

    "if you just get over every aspect of them then they're delish!!" No, fuck off lol.

    I do a 50/50 ratio of zoodles to Kroger's "lower calorie" spaghetti (it's 150 cals for 2 oz as opposed to 190, but there's a ton of fiber in it) to help me feel more sane

    [–] My fitness pal says 1 medium avocado is 234 calories, is that right? It sounds like a lot dimplezcz 16 points ago in 1200isplenty

    The USDA's nutrient database says avocados have 1.6 calories per gram. So just weigh it (without peel & pit) and multiply by 1.6

    What really helps me is just to not "make up" for the binge. I accept that it happened and try again the next day. Otherwise I restrict too much and binge again the next day etc etc.

    And IF isn't for everyone! I started doing it only a few days a week because some days I'm awake from 4:30am to 10:30pm and I can't be awake for 18 hours with only two-ish meals within an 8 hour window. Maybe make your IF day a day where you normally sleep in and/or go to bed early and work your way up from there.

    You got this!!

    [–] [Personal] It's Casual Friday! General Chat thread - Jul 27, 2018 dimplezcz 1 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    Has anyone heard of / regularly used any of the Fré Skincare products? They're designed for people who workout or sweat a lot, and I got a free trial sample pack of their 3 products. So many of the holistic/healthy Instagram "influencers" I follow swear by this brand, but holy hell it's expensive.

    The first is a cleanser with jojoba beads (I think?), next is an argan oil cream/serum type thing, and the third is a moisturizer with SPF. They strangely all smell the same, but the moisturizer definitely smells like sunscreen and leaves a slight whitecast. I'm not sure if it's because of the products or my attempts to not pick at my skin (I'm on day 3 of minimal picking), but my skin has definitely cleared up over the past few days. Aside from these 3 products I normally use micellar water on a cotton round when I wake up and oil cleanse before I shower.

    [–] Recipe Thursday dimplezcz 27 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in fatlogic

    My favorite Classic Recipe for Disaster:

    - 1 cup of maintaining a deficit while starting C210k in preparation for a half marathon in september

    - 3 tbs of boyfriend being in town, followed by diet going to shit

    - 48 oz miller lite, followed by 16 oz of nachos

    - 500g jumbo cheese pizza slice

    - 2 cups of tears because boyfriend left

    - 1 heaping cup of self-pity/loneliness

    he mentioned several times that it's temporary. I think our bodies are capable of a month-long experiment for shits n giggles

    [–] How many calories does 10,000 steps burn dimplezcz 9 points ago in 1200isplenty

    It really depends on your weight/height/age/normal TDEE

    [–] Wellness Wednesdays dimplezcz 5 points ago in fatlogic

    Couldn't agree more! I send my boyfriend Snapchats of my meals and he must think I'm in the kitchen 24/7, but I don't mind. I'm happy in my kitchen.

    I started with CICO, then macros & micros, and now I'm at the point where I can really start getting crafty by avoiding processed foods as much as possible thereby reducing waste.

    I agree with the other commenter that sugar is the biggest monster in the processed food industry. I try to make my own salad dressings, desserts, and various sauces at home considering I have a pretty stocked spice/baking cabinet.

    I use stevia, almond flour (more for macro than calorie purposes), natural peanut butter (it's a mission to find one without added oils), and I don't really cook with oil. I might get some avocado oil for when I need something with a high smoke point. Soybean/vegetable, canola, and rapeseed oils are the ones I try to avoid.

    All of these things really help me to feel like I'm eating clean, cheap, delicious, homemade meals!

    [–] Wellness Wednesdays dimplezcz 3 points ago in fatlogic

    I do both: huge bowl of vegetables with a decent portion (6-10oz) of meat along with it!

    • 60g quick oats
    • 25g whey isolate protein powder
    • 2 tbs pbfit (probably will exclude this next time since I topped it with real pb)
    • 0.5 c unsweetened almond milk
    • 1 tbs chia seeds
    • 75g plain nonfat Greek yogurt
    • 9g cacao nibs
    • ~ 100g cherries
    • sprinkle of pumpkin seeds & hemp seeds
    • spoonful of local apple cinnamon peanut butter

    calories: 692 (yeah it's a lot of calories but it kept me full for 5-6 hours, so it's great for IF) | protein: 54g | (net) carbs: 60g | fat: 25g

    [–] Was sent this insta post about the new Archer Farms ice cream calorie count. Is this how you calculate calories? dimplezcz 3 points ago in 1200isplenty

    Yep! When I post my macros on my Instagram posts I always subtract out fiber / sugar alcohols like the other commenter mentioned.

    Since the nutrition label can legally be off by 20%, it's always good to double check with math. I have no earthly idea why they don't just label it with the actual calories (marketing purposes probably), but it is frustrating
