    Counter product plug...I've been eating Simply Mills pancakes for a while and can't get enough of them. I was the same way as you with pancakes usually killing me but these are perfectly fine

    I like the Kodiak Power cakes. With milk an egg instead of water each serving has like 21g protein

    eggs really help the texture too.

    oh and you can replace milk/water with protein shake.

    ketosis burns about an extra ~150-200 calories a day at most but eating low carb makes you feel full and more likely to stick with it

    anybody use a calorie counting app other than MFP? hid their data breach from its users, underarmour is terrible at everything, app is draining my battery like crazy, its articles are based on witchcraft and not peer-review, and im tired of sifting through entries that list a tbsp of white onion as 10,000 calories and list things like carrots as measured only in fluid ounces

    gonna give cronometer a try

    preliminary look:
    - it doesnt have near the database that MFP does (obviously), so you'll be creating foods more often, however you can upload the nutritional info to the app by taking photos and the employees will create an entry based on your photos
    - which brings me to the best point so far: everything must be verified by the app itself, government agencies, or independent labs. im willing to create a few more foods after the fact if i can reliably put the correct values for ingredients. i never knew how many calories my recipes actually had with MFP so this will be nice
    - app looks nice if that matters to you
    - the app costs $3 to download, but you dont see any ads it appears. website is free.
    - everything ive logged today had options for grams, which is annoyingly uncommon in MFP
    - they use the mifflin-st. jeor calculation for TDEE, but maybe they have an option for katch-mccardle if you input body fat % somewhere
    - you can track things like minerals, vitamins, and more specific nutrients much easier (assuming the food entry lists it). AFAIK i cant track things like zinc or magnesium on MFP but i can on cronometer

    i havent looked at their subscription stuff so i cant say much on that. the recipe box on MFP was handy in that you could just copy/paste a url and it would parse the ingredients, it looks like you have to enter each ingredient by hand through cronometer

    so far i like it. ill update after a week or two.

    Yeah, my only issue is that that recipe didn't make enough to feed my GF and I last night + 4 lunches this week, which is what I usually count on for those one-pot meals. I would double the recipe if I did it again.

    I kinda eyeballed the ingredients and it came out a little bland at first. I added more soy sauce, some fish sauce, and more ginger and it was really good.

    Been saving rotisserie chicken carcasses in the freezer for a while and finally cleared them out to make some stock, so now instead I have a bunch of stock in my freezer. Anyone have a good stock-heavy recipe they like that's not just soup? Or, if it's soup, at least is something a little heartier. I've used it to make white bean chicken chile in the past but it's been meh and I want to try something new.

    Great call, haven't tried my hand at shrimp and grits before. To boot, I'll be coastal for a wedding this weekend so I can probably grab something fresh to make Sunday night.

    Probably not healthy living thread but this might as well be the non-cunty cooking thread.

    So long as you don't go overboard with the milk or cream and parmesan it is totally healthy. Just not compliant to certain diets.

    And post pics please when done.

    Just entering prime season. June-August is it. Then football season starts and all bets are off. Hoping the lack of activity ITT is everyone tuned in their diet/workouts late winter / early spring and are just business as usual now

    Sous vide chicken breasts so clutch for me. 2 of them in a bag is 2 Days worth of lunch/dinner. Just been tossing them in a salad most of the time with romaine, 2 hard boiled eggs, diced cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Greek yogurt dressings or fat free balsamic taste great

    I’m down 42ish lbs since 2018 started, and this is a big reason why. I’ll cook 4-5 chicken breasts every Sunday and have one for dinner most weeknights. I’ll season/sauce them differently so there’s a variation.

    Even microwaving them with a damp paper towel keeps them really juicy, then I just throw down some steamed broccoli or asparagus with it and call it a day. The Sous Vide chicken is almost more enjoyable than the steaks/brats I’ll mess with on a cheat day.

    I get on 2-3 week kicks where I do lunch and dinner same thing everyday (minus weekends). Currently doing 97/3 ground turkey with a pack of Mrs. Dash no sodium taco or fajita seasoning. While in the pan I add onion and jalapeños. I put that on top of a bed of steamed cauliflower rice and add cabbage and hot sauce and a little shredded lettuce.

    I’m on my first week of my third round of Whole 30, although we really are always use it as a basis for our meals except for a couple of cheat ones here and there. Down 30 pounds since April of 2017. Would love to lose 10 more to get back to my college weight before vacation next month.

    Dropped down all the way to 175lbs for the past month to get ready for my Florida trip starting in two days. I've only slept three hours each of the past two nights, still worked out and ate what I always do, and my weight skyrockets to 185lbs.

    I lose all sense of responsibility. I can't deprive myself on vacation.

    The biggest problem is the drinking. I usually don't drink on weeknights at home but once I'm on vacation (especially in the summer) its a three-four drink minimum.

    Yeah I can do the same...:ohdear:

    I was out of town last month and gained 8 lbs in three days. I even brought my pre-made meals with me. The only things I had was unwrapped starburst and some ribs from Chilis. How does that put on 8lbs? It took 10 days to get it back off.

    Same. I gave up drinking during the week (unless there's an event or something) a few years ago but even if i'm just back home or on a work trip I'll have a few every night.

    Oh I was ridiculous and it was during group stages. Literally, 9AM pub red stripe or Bloody, lunch red stripe, 1PM game red stripes. Then dinner and drinks until bed, rinse and repeat.

    I did eat healthy though..............Also, couldn't even stomach a drink for 5 or 6 days after vacation.

    Started yoga 3x a week. Cut lifting down to 4 days and leave time for 20-30min of some HIIT at the end of each.

    Also starting whole 30 on Monday with a lady friend. Still gonna be using 0% Greek yogurt for matcha fruit smoothies even though I know that’s frowned upon. Don’t care bc it’s healthy as shit and necessary for the smoothie game.
