Happy New Year's Deb!! xo

Happy New Year to you too! I'm guessing you're settling into some New Year's celebratory drinking right about now. xx

You guess CORRECT haha, my post tells the tale ;)

Well received!
This feels like its gonna be an interesting lecture. Will sure revisit it slowly!

If you're on university holidays, it would keep you occupied for days!

I'm glad to see you back posting @kiwideb and so grateful for all of your support. I started a new blog for food this year @fitinfunfood. I was not doing the topic justice a couple of times a week on @fitinfun, so I thought I would try this idea. Now I'm just tired lol.

Good for you for staying keto, I like that plan but it's too much for the obese and unhealthy people I work with. In the beginning, I just try to get them to eat some nutrition of any kind, and this is hard enough. Right now the fad to save everyone is intermittent fasting - can you hear me smashing my head on the keyboard :)

Well, there is something to be said for intermittent fasting. Though the term is somewhat loosely used. If they really mean overnight fasting for 12 or more hours, I just call that good meal spacing. If they mean periodically water fasting for a few days, that's cool too. But it doesn't replace eating properly the rest of the time!

So true - people just grasp for anything if they think they will not need to change what they eat.

Let's face it - nobody WANTS to change what they eat. But sometimes you just have to.
