Good morning, dear BSDers!
Prinnoi, sadly all fruits are high in sugars 🙂 1 cup of grapes is @ 16g carbs, and 20 = 24gr. I think that most of us
limited fruit to a small handful of berries during the weight loss phase. The practical problem is what do you do
with the remainder of the lb. of grapes you purchased so as to have “a few” in your salad???
Natalie, are you familiar with the concept of TDEE (total daily energy expenditure)? That plays a role in determining
how to arrive at the max. calorie load that is suitable in maintenance, and varies from individual to individual. For
example, I think Californiagirl can tolerate @2000, where I stay @1500. The caveat however, is that we both stay
in the “low carb” lane always. I don’t think that I agree with Fung that 1500 cal/day represents semi starvation.
After consuming 800cal/day for 10 months, 1500/day is more than enough for me. I’m sure others will be along
to share their thoughts on how to integrate Mosley and Fung’s theories.
Today is the day to set up the new thread! Is anyone interested in hosting it? Who plans to continue with us?
I’ve had it for the past 9 or 10 weeks, but am more than happy to continue….I think we have a great community
within a community here, and the concept of a week at a time seems to work for all of us There is so much
excellent work being done here, and I’m so proud of you all for staying with it! 🙂 🙂 🙂
