Why I’m Quitting Keto - A Post For Myself


Hi there @teri

FYI there are different ways you can reply to a comment or post. Look at this screenshot…

If you use the purple reply button at the bottom you are commenting on the topic in general. If you use the reply in grey that is within a comment you will be replying to that comment and member. You can also highlight specific parts of what they say and that will automatically be put as a quote in your comment. If you want to reply to multiple comments in the thread then you can use the purple reply button and then pull quotes from various comments and reply to each one as you go - this is a better option than replying to each one as a separate comment. They system will likely notify you of this and make the suggestion to use quotes - it’s quite helpful like that :slight_smile:

Hope that helps.

Can I block this guy from posting here, or…

Sadly, no. Admins are on it though.

No, the Discourse devs refuse to built that into the software, despite plenty of requests.

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

Can we mention God when discussing the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge? I’m not much of a fruit eater but if my local produce market ever has it at a good price I’d be sorely tempted to give it a try. Anyone know the forbidden fruit macros?

I’m sure it is way too high in carbs. In fact, maybe that’s why it was forbidden: eating too much would lead to diabetes.


Don’t be cheeky! :smiley:

That’s my only complaint with the format of this board…it can be difficult to know who is replying to whom. You have to look at the little arrow in the upper right of the post…took me a bit to figure that out. LOL

I guess he is part of your life now. But I’m gonna leave @Newtok with some wise words of advice from one of my top 5 favorite television characters, Ron Swanson.
Now just log off and stop trolling, or admit it and no one will give af.


@Newtok has been put on the naughty step for a week. They are free to use this time to see how the community treats one another and come back in a week having turned over a new leaf or leave.

Thanks all for your tolerance and patience. This community is amazing xxx

Yippee! I love the way you’ve stated this.

So her triumphant return will be like a Christmas present for everyone (a week from today).

(Teri) #116

This community has put up with me and helped advise me on issues when they had no reason to. Idc what diet I am on, I doubt I’ll ever find a forum this positive and supportive.

ANOTHER reason to hate Christmas!

Nevermind, I’m afraid it is extremely high carb after reading this:
And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Genesis 2:16–17[1]

Seriously. I’ve joined forums to help with my eating disorder and they just end up being discussions on tricks to lose more weight, and are really just pro-anorexia sites. I’ve joined running forums and they are just competition sites for who runs the fastest and the most. It’s never positive. So a sucky thing about stopping this WOE is not interacting here. I haven’t been here long, but my experience here was great.

(John) #120

There is a fairly broad range of information, links to a lot of very good science, and a broad range of experiences with various health, exercise, diet, and recipe information here.

You don’t have to be on some ultra-strict keto regimen to keep participating. There are a number of active posters who are somewhat low carb but not really full-on keto.

Some people are here to control type 2 diabetes, or who need to lose significant amounts of weight. For them, the ultra-low carb approach may be best. Some people achieve their goals easily, for some every pound lost is a major victory.

You can still hang around, comment, contribute, and learn. There really is no right “one way” that fits everyone.

Actually, some people do get diabetes from just that. It’s not like everybody on earth has to eat vast amounts of processed, refined carbohydrates to get there. It’s demonstrable, it’s provable, it’s scientific fact. It is also true that not eating bananas, oatmeal, other grains, etc., has meant improvement in insulin resistance and blood sugar control, even to the point of reversing diabetes, for many people.

No, not prohibited and you can certainly mention God. Yet there you are talking about something which cannot be proven to be anything more than imaginary. That is a far different thing than the demonstrable, provable, known facts about carbohydrate intake and insulin response, etc.

This shit is so far off the rails but folks seem to be having fun. I agree it smells of (bad) trolling to me.
