2 pounds lighter…it was the toffee! whatever the reason, congrats!


To say you are not the only one would be an understatement. So many are surprised as well. Read the answers to Marty's question…What are you learning from tracking your blood sugar on Thanksgiving? I hope Marty will do an analysis of why all the low carb/keto followers are not seeing much increase at all. I would like to think I am now metabolically flexible, but could it be the food mixture? Protein and fat first? It is so noticeable I mentioned it on the main DDF FB page. I have been sitting out until today so I can't add anything until Monday. Due to DD's work schedule, our Thanksgiving will be tomorrow and Sunday.

Although I did not indulge yesterday I did eat more freely than usual, including some dairy free mashed potatoes but no desserts this year since there were none provided that were dairy, gluten and egg free. Usually there is at least one made special for me that I can eat but alas not this year. I do not expect people to cater to my many food sensitivities and I am happy to be able to sit down and eat with everyone with more than enough provided that I can eat. Despite my semi indulgence my bg did not rise any more than it usually does which is never very much and less than it used to be before I lowered my fat intake and allowed for more carbs. DDF along with Nutrient optimization have truly benefitted me. I am grateful. There is much to give thanks for even without any pie.

Since I hadn't intended to cook for Thanksgiving, but ended up doing so, everything I made was LC (Keto, not low fat). However, I overate and the cranberry nut pie I made was insanely delicious (and low carb!). So I overate until that pie was gone a few days later. So when hunger training started I was up a good 3 pounds over my lovely T-day weigh-in. Oops!

Most of it is gone now, but hunger training after thanksgiving is no picnic.

As I was nosing around Mighty Networks, noticed that Robb Wolf charges $229.00 per year to join his group there. I don’t think Marty is planning to retire on all these Unlimited deals. This $97 for 10 classes per year…forever… is amazing.

Well, drat. I was trying to link to a location that was not a private FB page, but since you are a member there, this should work for you.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/548...94791521801446/ or this: https://app.optimisingnutrition.com...VYdYGK3mRcbzsv0


A heads up for another deal…a Christmas special for both Unlimited programs together.

I did sign up for the master class, unlimited.

I think I have officially lost 10 pounds now, maybe a bit more. I actually forgot to eat dinner last night.

Me too! I started Baselining last Friday, so for 3 days had 3 celebration/holiday meals, and drinks!…and today was 2/10ths lower than start weight. If I can sail through through the holidays roughly where I started….all good.

Wow, that's amazing! I have to admit this challenge is much, much easier. I hadn't really gone back to old habits during my maintenance phase, so was still losing a bit. And I feel even less like eating something I shouldn't than during my 1st challenge. Truthfully, except when I'm very hungry, I barely even think about the diet.

Thanks for starting this thread, Nancy. As mentioned in another thread, this FB denier (me) is thrilled to learn that DDF will be FB-free starting in 2022. While I get some excellent group feedback here, I'm looking forward to sharing with a broader community in the near future. I, too, floated through Thanksgiving without being strict, but also not straying too far and getting back to normal shortly after. The result? No changes. Chasing insulin sensitivity is effective using DDF as a periodic barometer for regular true ups. Being an unlimited member enables one to stay consistent with the data required to re-establish one's necessary nutrition thresholds. I have a new BG meter (thanks for the feedback, thud), that provides the necessary feedback over time, and it's one where I'm no longer concerned about the accuracy of the readings.

My WOE is basically the same with emphasis on healthy protein and low carb veggies and berries for nutritional and flavor purposes. I'm a bit more diverse and no longer sweat the small stuff if I have an opportunity to venture into a food I don't usually eat. It's always interesting to see where my BG is after those diversions to determine what kind of an impact I'm experiencing. The learning continues. Good stuff.
