    I feel fairly alone in that I count carbs and sugar, not calories. I can restrict to below 100 calories and only gain if it's made of carbs or sugar. So,calories are irrelevant to me. Carbs give me copious amounts of anxiety.
  2. Food
    In products like tasty cheese, milk and unsweetened yoghurt (Farmer's Union Natural Pot Set Yoghurt), the sugar count is fairly high but I can't work out whether it would consist of complex carbs or simple carbs. Does anyone have decent information on this?

    What are your protein preferences? And what are your macro preferences for your calorie intake? This probably sounds high but I eat 700 calories. Right now I have my macros on MFP set to Carbs - 61g Protein - 71g Fat - 19g I can't tell if my protein is unnecessarily high for my...

    I found out the main thing to losing weight is kicking up your Ketogenesis, a chemical process known for breaking down the fats in your body. I'm currently following what this diet is all about, which is almost entirely avoiding carbs! My daily intake is currently now trying to be under 50g, but...

    Hey lovelies, just wanted to know if any of you use any carb blockers and do they really work. I'm scared even looking at carbohydrates and I do accidentally eat some carbs, and hate myself for it more, so i just need to have them for ease of mind........please help xx
  6. Vegetarian/Vegan/Raw Food Diets
    Of course not all vegans are lean and muscular, but I noticed there are so many vegan youtubers (I'll list a few) that happen to be really lean and pretty muscular while doing a vegan diet. Not only a vegan diet but a raw high carb vegan diet. Examples: -Caroline's choice -frelee -Margherita...

    carbs get bashed on a LOT and many fear them because "if you eat too many you'll gain fat" (if you eat too much of anything you'll gain fat) and "cutting them out makes you lose weight super fast" (carbs hold onto water; you cut them out, you lose water. go back to them and boom, water weight...

    Should I count my grams of fat and carbs? How many grams of fat and carbs are a good limit? What does counting arbs do? Is there anything else I need to keep track of?
  9. Orthorexia
    I know that most of us like to avoid starchy high-calorie foods and try and get full on fruit and veg when we need carbs, but sometimes you just have to eat normally, which usually includes starch. So which one do you think is best? My personal favourite is bread (rye or wholewheat) as it can be...

    Okay. I think it's undisputed among us here on MPA that ketogenic diets work for rapid weight loss. Now…THE question is, WHO OUT THERE HAS ACTUALLY MANAGED TO TRANSITION BACK TO A NORMAL DIET? *Successfully* I mean. It just seems that everyone who tries to go on a "low-carb diet" ends up...
  11. Bulimia Discussions
    so i was just going through my cell biology work book and i saw this note that i wrote at the bottom of a page on carbohydrates and it said, reheating pasta = less carbs. This is because the 'cold pasta' kind of blocks out the amylase enzyme that breaks up the starch in to glucose (sugar) and so...

    I wonder what are you more afraid of...CARBS/SUGAR or FAT? I used to be afraid of Fat and would never go above 10grams per day. But This time I'm more afraid of Carbohydrates but it's very hard for me to cut them down since I love all kinds of dark breads... :( I try to stay under 100 grams...
