In yesterday's DDF Live video Q & A, Alex announced there that all challenges, Masterclass, recipes, cookbooks, as of 1/2022, will be on Mighty Networks. The public group will remain on Facebook for marketing to new users, but there will be a new platform for the entire community linked together. This is the same network Robb Wolf uses for his community, so many advantages to leave the FB distractions. If you are signed up for the next challenge or first Macro Masterclass, it should be a smooth transition.

Nancy joined the October Challenge and posted her great results on the General Low Carb sub-forum. Although the DDF techniques work with any diet, many of the members do eat low carb, so good to share results there.

Link to this new thread on Challenge results: https://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=485070

I lost another 3 pounds, now a total of 75 pounds since starting LC in 2010, 38 pounds with DDF and Nutrient Optimisation. Success story has details.

The last challenge for 2020 starts Nov 20th, and Baselining for US members will be extended through the Thanksgiving holidays if you wish.

Good news Thud! How was the last challenge? The details of the optional Thanksgiving hack are:

" **The ultimate Thanksgiving recovery hack**
For those of you in the US, we were thinking that DDF would be a cool way to help you negotiate Thanksgiving celebrations.
1. Enjoy Thanksgiving.
1. Continue baselining through Thanksgiving (you will learn a LOT).
1. Delay starting hunger training until after the partying has finished (and the leftovers are gone from the fridge).
1. Enjoy the quick guided recovery back to normal blood sugars and weight, ready to look trim and svelte for Xmas."

This hack looks good. Last challenge I didn't even log into the FB feed. October was not the greatest for me I. It's supprising tho with all the carbs I was consuming my general BG was still not skyrocket high. However, my morning readings were always too high for my liking (over 100mg/dL)

November is going good. I've reset my baseline Nov 1 and am currently working it down. Morning BG, and LB trending DOWN, Attitude trending UP

I love finding new podcasts, and enjoyed this new to me one about DDF and NO with Paul Burgess from the UK. Paul completed a DDF so was talking from experience.
Then when I checked earlier shows, there are five episodes going back a few years! The recent episode is #176, covers satiety, fasting, many topics good to review.

It was super fun to chat to my good friend and mentor again, this time about his experience with Data Driven Fasting.

Holy Cow, a Cyber Monday deal for UNLIMITED DDF for only $59. And today, there will be a deal for the UMLIMITED DD Macros and Micros Masterclasses.

https://www.datadrivenfasting.com/ddf-unlimited



Since yesterday, the moderators have been testing Mighty Networks, the new community for all these class platforms starting with the Jan 8 Macro class.
Color me confused…I don’t even understand half the features, but then I ignore most of what is on Facebook too. But it does have Topics, which will function more like sub-forums, and threads.

That's a great deal. I'm an unlimited member and looking forward to DDF in 2022. I sincerely hope the new platform provides an entry way for new people to experience and share DDF that FB could not, and that it becomes user friendly. In many cases, these improvements take some time, so patience is the keyword in this case. As mentioned many times before, I believe DDF combined with Naiman's P:E approach is a great combination. Understanding one's reaction to food and eating times is a very powerful and simple way to keep blood sugar low and to control insulin release. It allows people to become insulin sensitive based on their unique metabolic responses. Good stuff.

Marty has updated the Nutrient Optimizer FAQs to reflect all the changes…breaking it into two four week classes, moving to a private social group. If you have any interest in learning how Optimal Nutrition improves weight loss on low carb, this new series of FAQs will answer it. The first three parts are now available on his public website/blog: https://optimisingnutrition.com/blog/

How the Macros class could help various types of dieters overcome their stall. For low carb/keto:

Quote:
Failed keto dieter

Low carb can help improve satiety with less carbs and more protein, but high fat can lead to low satiety and a poor nutrient density.

Ensure you are getting adequate protein and not overconsuming fat. If you want, you can also use your blood glucose levels to understand whether you need to be concerned about carbs or should simply focus on chasing the nutrients your body requires from food.

More about the free social network community:

Quote:
We’ve heard from many people who wanted to join our programs but don’t want to be on Facebook. With more than 1500 people in some of our challenges in 2021, we’re outgrowing Facebook.
So we set up our free private community that’s much better suited to running large courses like ours.
We’re excited that it will allow people to focus on getting great nutritional inspiration and community support without the attention-grabbing distractions of social media.

We'll be consolidating all our paid 2022 courses in the new platform, including:

- Data-Driven Fasting. (first one starts Jan 22)
- Macros Masterclass (first one starts Jan 8)
- Micros Masterclass

Here's what you get for free when you join:

- Data Driven Fasting 101 Course. (160 page book included!)
- The Healthiest Meal Plan In The World
- 7 Day Nutrient Clarity Challenge (Get clarity on what nutrients your body truly needs)
- Nutribooster Food Lists (69 of them), and
- A super supportive community of Optimisers

Join for free at: https://members.optimisingnutrition...m_source=manual


There is a jam-packed calendar of 17 programs in 2022!
