How do You Deal with Alcohol Events?
A word of warning. Drinking alcohol when you are in ketosis can be dangerous. It will hit you harder and make you tipsy in no time. You may faint or collapse. Put your health, first. Dilute your booze with lots of mixer. Drink an alcoholic drink followed by a non-alcoholic, and so on, all evening. I advise eating a slice of bread and butter or a goodly low carb meal before you drink so as to minimise the risk of a bad reaction x

Does It Really Matter... Calorie Intake
Calorie-wise I think of Subway as disastrous! Carb wise, too. Not really suitable for any weight loss programme.

Pros and Cons of ADIPEX???
As far as I know Adipex (I used to buy it privately from a clinic as 'phentermine'Wink is not available in the UK on prescription. It was banned or some such many years back.

It only worked for me at the beginning. Pretty soon I needed a double dose; not long after even that no longer worked. When I finally ran out of money and patience my weight went up again. Perhaps I was just unlucky but I do truly believe that appetite suppressants, particularly amphetamine-related ones, are very addictive and can be dangerous.

What happens when you stop taking the pills? This is the real worry. Rebound regain is so common as to be universal. The chemically suppressed appetite often comes back with a real vengeance. Depression is often part of the 'comedown' too.

All the best, those who are taking them. Perhaps you will be lucky, keep your weight off and kick the pills without any problems x

Frustrated with lack fo weight loss...what am I doing wrong?
Would like to add as others have stated on this site that sometimes eating too little whilst undertaking heavy exercise can stall weight loss. It may not have this effect on everyone but it certainly has on some individuals.

Could it be that your body is retaining fluid? Storing water as glycogen? If you are under-eating the body needs to find a source of energy to support this added demand. When this source is not coming in as food it will also slow-down the rate at which you burn fuel in order to stop you from eventually dying of starvation. It does not know you are deliberately choosing to eat too little for your daily needs.

Too little carbohydrate when exercising in a serious way can make the body cling to the water and glycogen to fuel your muscles. Without a certain amount of carbohydrate the muscles cannot work at optimum level and, indeed, are far more prone to injury and slower healing.

Once again, the key to success is moderation in all things.

I am In Need of Prayers because I am Haveing major Health issues
You need medical attention, and fast. Deal with the physical problems first as a major priority. Once you are being treated for the reflux etc you will be in a much better physical and emotional state to tackle the spiritual pain and the overwhelming food issues.

I once weighed 300 pounds. I felt despairing at times, just like you do now. I managed over time and with effort and commitment to lose the weight. I thank God I was able to.

The benevolent Universe will help you. Call on Archangel Michael in particular to protect you from further harm. Ask for help, humble yourself and say, I am beat, I cannot do this any longer, I have had enough, please give me healing.

And see a doctor as soon as possible. Right now a diet is way down the list of priorities.

Brightest blessings x
