One of the biggest takeaways I got during my three weeks: Just because you’re having a “craving” or “want” something sweet doesn’t mean you have to eat sugar—or even pop a sugar replacement, such as a piece of fruit—on impulse.

  • i think you should eat one time a day. give your body time to burn some fat. i always feel like i can wait. when i eat im not ever really hungry. i just eat cuz i know its about time.

  • Thankyou ❤ just thankyou because it is real and what I’m experiencing it seems some other women experience too. I’ve felt so alone, i started my period at age 9 and im now 26 the mood swings particularly the anxiety and random floods of tears have just got worse as I’ve got older and the doctors still say i need to eait for my hormones to level out eventually. I’ve even had a year with no medication to see if my body would level out on its own ive tried every pill and hormonal treatment there is and i was starting to beleive i was insane the last time I tried to explain my anxiety around the time of my period my doctor asked me if I was taking recreational drugs…

  • Interesting! I’m learning all about emotions right now for myself and my toddler because when I was growing up I was inadvertently taught that uncomfortable emotions are bad and we shouldn’t show them. So as a result I rarely showed many “positive” emotions either appearing to be a fairly quiet calm person all the time. It’s interesting what I’ve learned as a parent so far!!

  • Thank you for this. These last two videos that you have posted have been incredibly helpful for me. I’ve struggled with this all of my life and feel like I am finally starting to understand the deeper reasons. You’ve helped more than you know.

  • It helps to understand, how what resonates with you works; as it enables one to adapt to changes that shows up in life. Atkins did not work for me in the long run because there was something that Atkins was not aware of, and that is eating carbs wasn’t necessary. The emphasis was very low carb and increasing it it slowing over time unfortunately, for me it was like telling an alcoholic that over time they can drink again < from a very happy zero carb/carnivore.

  • For me it gets worse when something triggers me.
    But really I’ll slowly not feel like myself and even if its just a slightest thing of disagreement to me or a problem I’d go moody and really shows to my face and actions. It really sucks and it’s just making me look bad.
    I didn’t have this before but I guess as I get older this can get worse

  • What should I grab for as a late night snack? Sometimes I eat dinner kind of early because of my schedule so around 9 I get hungry again and need to eat. When I try not to eat I end up binging on bad food. What can I grab for that would not be detrimental???

  • This is the exact same old video,if you’re running out of ideas then reduce the frequency of the videos rather than repeating the same old stuff

  • I swear Tasty you better stop reposting videos or else you’ll gain a hell lotta hate. Just make a fresh new video! I know cooking recipes won’t just pop into your mind but we won’t care you’re not posting daily!

  • OMG MY PERIOD WEEK LIFE like the 3 days before and the day of my period! Most my periods are like this, I have most the emotional ones, the oversleeping, sore boobs and bloating/super irritated belly. I often get migraines like 4 days before I’m on, migraines so bad I vomit, then the cramps. Lordie lord! Then day 2 of my period back to normal. Tho I’ve also suffered many episodes of long term depression and always have anxiety/GAD. So yaayyyy dual diagnosis lmao

  • IF and low carb has psychologically helped me change my attitude towards food and satiation completely. Being informed about calories and macros, from a knowledge point of view, but not obsessing over it or feeling hungry all the time. Also, for the first time the, “Eat what is on your plate and finish it”, mentality has totally gone, organically. Now I immediately can feel that last bite was where my stomach has had enough and satiation will kick in shortly, instead of just shoving food down my throat. I actually feel liberated, and I attribute the phycological changes to the physiological changes of not eating meals high in carbs and spiking insulin. Further compounding the problem by eating all the time, or to fill up to feel emotionally secure.
