Draglist's Journal, 06 December 2017

Woke at 215.0, up 1.4 from yesterday. Water retention from excess sodium in pork rinds. I will be eating more today. Also have drinks after work. If I have a snack, it will be meat or cheese. UPDATE: Went out for dinner and drinks with my friend Andy and while I didn't eat that much, I did have whiskey, wine, and even beer, which of course put me over on carbs and put on the water weight. Altogether, had a lot of calories today. Ended the day at 216.6 after dinner. Not sure what we will see in the morning.

Just finished a delicious bag of salt and vinegar flavored ones... the WORST for sodium! But at least I'll know where the weight is coming from! Tried to limit dairy but it is SO hard to get dietary fat without it!

next time you're in the bar having drinks pick out one of those pickled pig knuckles from the large jar, that's more in line with with your delicious bag of salt in your words pork rines

Thanks, Patty! Me, too! Pork rinds with sour cream and salsa is a great snack! Thanks for taking me back to 1965, Murph! Been a long time since I've been in a good old beer joint like that... let's add pickled eggs! But probably won't go there! :)

sounds like you have a plan , I love cheese am addicted to cheese..lol however have never tried a pork Rine or rind? someone told me what it was and I never got past it... lol

A pretty good substitute for potato chips, etc. Also, very useful as a 'breading' when crunched up but I have never done that.

Wait, are you trying to put on weight? Meat and cheese? pork rinds? Did I sign up for the wrong app... 
06 Dec 17 by member: rachelbloomfield
Right app, wrong way of eating. I'm doing keto, which includes fats and proteins and avoids sugars and grains. I think the vegetarians are one aisle over! All are welcome.

you do you! nothing wrong with enjoying some pork rinds as long as everything else is pretty good. meat and cheese makes a great protein dense snack, will definitely tide someone over until the next meal.

That is the antithesis of everything I understand about being healthy, mindfully and physically. I joined 5 minutes ago & will be canceling in another 5. You're right, I'm too judgemental to stand on the sidelines and hear such senselessness (in a supposedly supportive food/weight loss community) as: "I'm bloated from pork rinds and beer, better switch to meat and cheese".

Adios and happy holidays.

OMG, life and let life...there is not only one "one and only way" to reach your goal, Rachel. You should be a little bit relaxed. Inform yourself about ketogenic way of eating before condemning it! It is a better and healthier way than you might know by now. And if it is not your way, try something you feel good with...

It amazes me when people follow the same old bull crap methods that don't work and then try to tell other people what they are doing is wrong. I have lost 60 lbs this year and am a size 6, almost a 4. My blood work is amazing. My doctor almost cried when he saw me. This big 6 ft 4 Indian man hugged me. He was so happy for me. He told me I had just added 10 years to my life...all of that eating delicious nitrate free uncured bacon and eggs for breakfast, meat and veggies smothered in butter for dinner, and snacking on pork rinds. Yum.

2426girl...in your own words"It amazes me when people follow the same old bull crap methods that don't work" you mean your own methods that you laid out for us.Well you know you didn't gain that 75lbs by walking past the candy isle.so don't get your panties in a wad.no one's putting no one down...you ever here of razzing,we stopped at the eggs because of censorship

rachel, your 100% right to feel the way you do and I agree with you with some people it's life or death.you'll fine that .5% that likes to hear themselves talk and don't consider that talking like that goes against what this site is all about,so hang in there.FS family will be here for you.

Yes, Bill, Happy Holidays to all!

okay now I have to try pork rinds..lol using it as a crumb sounds like a great idea :) 
06 Dec 17 by member: cherik1
I gotta “weigh in” here. There is nothing wrong with the way Bill is eating if it works for him. I only saw one person “get their panties in a wad” and that was rachelbloomfield who quickly and harshly condemned the Keto way of eating that is successfully working for many, myself included. There is many ways of eating that work. In the Fat Secret community here we support ALL! Everyone must walk their own path and it is not right to pass judgement on each other. I agree with 2426girl, I’ve lost 71 pounds so far, blood work is textbook perfect, diabetes under control and that’s all eating pork rinds, healthy fats and meat and cheese! I’ve also lost a lot of weight in the past with the highly preached low fat, low calorie way of eating. It worked, but wasn’t sustainable FOR ME. To each his/her own. @Murph (E). I respectfully disagree with your comments my friend. We’re allowed to do that. We’re adults 😜. Never a need to get nasty and that’s my take on Rachel’s comments. Nasty and unnecessary 😢
