I’m sorry, I’m really going to chalk this up to me being really dumb because even still, I just dont get what you mean in relation to this thread.


(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #786

Yeah @moebius, I’m gonna have to agree with @x-Dena-x on this. I’m as clueless about your illustrations as you apparently are on the purpose of this thread.

In fact, your nails/amputation example made more sense then your BDSM one, and I still didn’t understand that. :man_shrugging:

DON’T WORRY, NO MORE EXPLANATION NECESSARY. I mean that.


#787

@x-Dena-x you’re not dumb. @dlc96_darren said he didn’t get what @moebius was trying to say, and neither do I.

A big NSV for me today!

10 days or so in, and first time eating out. We chose a carvery so I knew I would at least have the meat.
I chose to have a few veggies, I left the potatoes (I love roasties!) and passed on the gravy (another thing I love). I was really sad, but I cut up, and shared out, my yorkshire pudding. So many NSVs but the biggie, the one I would never have believed I would do is I chose not to have a pudding!
There were loads I would have had in past, but not today. I asked about the carbs in the coconut milk icecream. They could tell me about the allergens but not the nutritional values, do I passed! I sat watching my boys eat bottomless icecream and my friend eating the toffee apple crumble cake with custard, and I didn’t miss it. Didn’t have a taste of any, didn’t even finish off the icecream that S left!
20190323_161000|690x335 For me, that is massive, I’m proud of me, so I’m shamelessly bragging about it!

That’s what we’re here for. :+1:

Great job, Helen!


(I'll trade you my bacon for your cheese) #790

You should be proud of you. Eating out can be so tempting, but you nailed it. Building good habits one butter brick at a time!

Awesome! I’d struggle to pass out a yorkie, did give in & have 2 small ones with xmas lunch but try to avoid as could easily eat 6+ dunked in gravy.


(I'll trade you my bacon for your cheese) #792

I legit love England’s multiple definitions of “pudding”. I think Ive learned all the differences from The Great British Baking Show.


#793

We always had ‘yorkies’ on a Sunday. My Grandpa was Yorkshire born and bred, so we had them the way he was brought up - with gravy and pickled beetroot as a starter - rather than with the roast.
My uncle would come round at tea time and would have the left over yorkies (if Grandma knew he was coming there were sure to be extras) as a pudding, with hot milk and jam!
It makes sense, after all, pancakes and yorkies are made from exactly the same batter :grinning:

Thanks guys :+1::grinning::grinning::grinning:


(Ellen) #794

Yeah, we do it just to confuse people :grin: do we mean pie, yorkie, suet puds or actual dessert???


(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #795

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


(Ellen) #796

Yep, the weekends I was with Dad & his Mum it was yorkies (and gravy, lots of gravy) as 1st course followed by tiny bit of meat & veg. Nan would always make a few extra though for me to snack on later.


#797

They were relatively cheap. Fill up on those before the expensive meat.

Keto yorkshire recipe anyone?


(I'll trade you my bacon for your cheese) #798

Exactly!! And I’m over here like

Oh, see this is a good point. We aren’t quarantined, we live in the world and are surrounded by temptations almost on a daily basis.

But see, we can’t choose how, when, and what we’re tempted by. We can only choose how we will respond to that temptation.

I don’t almost go to work, because my bank account is low. I always go to work, because I have a family to support. I can’t control what sweet temptations someone else might bring to the office, but I still need to go to the office to work.

You’ll notice a lot of the stuff posted here, are things people encounter at the office.

That’s a good vibe. We aren’t trying to be rude, but I still don’t think you fully understand the point of this thread. Instead of scrolling through and just looking at the pictures, read the comments, and responses. It should make more sense why this thread exists.

I’ve had several occasions on this forum where someone has proclaimed they went to a dinner party, or over to a friend’s house, or celebrated someone’s birthday (You know how many people have birthdays around here? ALL of them.) and confessed they ate something they shouldn’t have and were feeling guilty about it.

This thread is an opportunity for someone to face that temptation with an alternative, and hold themselves accountable to their keto way of eating.

Absolutely, but a lot people here, who are eating keto, are still tempted by donuts. This includes myself, but I will say, after eating keto for two years now, it’s easier to resist them.

But see, for some it’s not a laughing matter. It’s as serious as being an alcoholic. For some people, it can be a matter of life or death. The temptation is that strong.

Still, it’s not really about being funny; sure some of the comments here are funny and we’re trying to make light of the situation, but it’s REALLY about encouragement.

“You can do this!”
“You don’t have to give in to the temptation!”
“I’m here for you; you’re not alone!”

We’re here to support each other, and that’s the whole purpose of this forum. So, I think it fits in quite nicely.

Only because I think you didn’t start from the beginning and read all the comments, before you decided to comment. I truly believe if you went back to the beginning, and read all the comments, it would make more sense. Well, maybe not all of them, but enough that the thread finally made sense.

And that’s what we’re here for. Personally I would throw out the pineapple and never eat it again. The problem with the fruit we have available today, is it’s engineered to be really sweet. Today’s fruit is basically eating sugar. In my opinion fruit is worse than a donut, because it gives you the sense that you’re eating something healthy, were as a donut it’s just universal knowledge that it’s unhealthy.

Which is a good point. If donuts are so unhealthy, and everyone knows this, why are so many made, and why do so many people eat them?

That’s why you throw out the pineapple. It’s not doing you any favors. It’s making this diet too complicated.

Most of use had had to clear out the pantry and refrigerator, because we are surrounded by so many unhealthy foods.

There are a lot of threads here with people who are starting out, and have no idea what they can eat. I encourage you to search around and find some suggestions on good foods you can always eat.

If your up for it, start your own thread, and ask the community for advice. There are tons of helpful, intelligent people here that would love to help you out with this.

If you’re lazy, like me, I just made a list of what I usually eat. It might help give you some ideas. Also, that thread, What Did You Keto Today, is full of great ideas of keto friendly foods!

Yeah, don’t waist your time on this thread, if you’re still trying to figure out what you can eat.

And I don’t expect you to post any pictures of donuts on this thread. :wink:

WAY TO GO, @moebius! :+1:

But better yet, throw that pineapple in the bin and take a picture of it, then post it here. Next time you’re at the store, and tempted to buy another pineapple, take a picture of it instead, and post it here. We’ll be here to encourage you to avoid it, or any other tempting item, NOT keto friendly.

We’re ALL here for each other!

Have a :purple_heart:! ’cause I’m already out of likes again


(Running from stupidity) #802

I think he’s CICOBOB back to troll us under a different username. Just like MRC/Marion is doing.


#803

He’s done this, twice, ignored/challenged/ argued against the replies because no one told him what he wanted to hear. The threads were merged (they had same title) and now been closed because he wouldn’t listen. Don’t let that happen here!

Edit: hes been suspended anyway.

So, we went out to eat today after church. One of my favorite local places. Hadn’t been there since I re-started Keto in the fall of 2018. They have notoriously smashing bread rolls served with damn near every entree.
My smothered chicken entree was fine all by itself, but it comes with “the roll”, and potato side, and a salad bar. As tempting as the fresh baked rolls smell, I pushed it away and let my hubby take it home, along with the potato.
I was completely satisfied with the massive chicken/mushroom/peppers/cheese entree, and salad bar. I just loaded up on the safe items at the salad bar, and have been full since 1:30 this afternoon! YAY!

The temptation of tucking into bread or rolls, or muffins or whatever is slowly waning. I’m thrilled about it. But, being the only Keto-er in a house of 5 can be a smidge difficult some days. I’ll take any seemingly little victories I can find, and rejoice!


(Awesome Cheerleader For All) #805

That’s great, @SecondBreakfast!

I’m very proud of you! :+1:
