I have spent FAR too much time on this board in the past few months and have absolutely loved it for the up to date info, community, civility and diversity. It’s only been up for just over a year but the breadth of insight from both experts and personal experience (often at least as important given we are all special snowflakes), data, science, resources, links etc. is phenomenal. I guess in January there is an influx of newbies looking for a diet solution but the way Keto is blowing up I doubt the flood will stop in any month so I make this plea to noobs and longtime members…
Please use the Discourse Search Function!!!
It is flexible, effective, it seems to have a pretty good prioritization algorithm to put better results higher up the list even based on a super basic search request. There is a reasonable chance that your question has been asked before and answered comprehensively (especially newbies) and if it hasn’t then it is probably a great addition to the keto discussion and knowledge base.
There are plenty of ways to introduce yourself and interact with folks (accountability, intros, progress, adding resources/science/articles etc. if that’s a goal) without asking a question that’s been answered twenty times before.
Not this post but I think there should be some kind of high-level sticky in each section to remind everyone to do this.
PS I did search for this before writing this post
