I found all these products at Target yesterday but I was there to get my favorite "dumbcarb" I'm loving the "Kettle Bakes" chips and my mother and myself use them in weight loss with much success, Potatoes are not recommended by any means though by NS but it works for me and my mother who is a tater chip- aholic and she probably would not be able to maintain any eating plan that didnt include her beloved chips. These are a great alternative to the usual greasy yumminess of traditional fried chips.
This is the beginning of a new day.
God has given me this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or grow in its light and be of service to others.
But what I do with this day is important because I have exchanged a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes today will be gone forever.
I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it.
Sam - congrats to you and your mother who have proven that moderation works, even in weight loss mode. I ate PopChips along the way to goal. Sometimes, a girl just needs a chip. In the right portion, it will not ruin diet success, and as you noted may help the dieter remain on plan. That is the precise reason why so many nutrition and fitness experts put their stamp of approval on moderation / cheat meals / daily treat / etc.
I'm curious what sort of conversations some of you have out in the non-virtual world. Are you surrounded by yes women (or men)? I'm sure not. It certainly seems that on the boards there are some folks that expect to be able to make a statement and hear NOTHING but concurring opinions. Nice gig, if you can get it.
I've been away from the boards for several weeks because of a crazy schedule. Decide to catch up today and what do I see? A post about a product to incorporate into the NS diet. Obviously, the OP likes the product and thinks the stats are good. So far so good.
A post from Poster #2 saying that. . . for her . . . the product has too little protein, too much fat. Okay, so far that seems like "conversation" to me. Cool.
Then the OP replies with a bit of snark. (Or if talking about a non-virtual conversation I would say replies with an edge in his/her voice). Apparently, the OP doesn't like it that the Poster #2 has voiced that the new product does not meet her own personal guidelines. Now I'm puzzled. Why does the OP care if Poster #2 has different personal guidelines? Doesn't the OP routinely post that each person should run their program in the way that works best for them?
I repeat, I wonder what sort of conversations some of you have in the non-virtual world? Do you react negatively when someone dares to have an opinion that differs from yours? Or when someone dares to set (and talk about) different personal nutritional guidelines? Do you expect to hold the floor in conversations and allow no one else to speak?
Before anyone posts that there is "history", I have a question. Does "history" give any of us carte blanche to respond to other posts/forum members with derision simply because of "history"? At what point does that privilege kick in? And is the privilege "self-awarded"?
On this thread it looks as if the only thing that Poster #2 could have done to avoid derision was (1) agree or (2) not post. It makes me wonder if a similar post from any other poster would have been met with the same response.
