  • Hey beautiful friends,
    What’s your weight loss journey update?

    P.S. my Instagram @Kimberley_longg
    My motivational fitness page: @mydailystudent xx

  • Thank u so much for your videos, thanks for motivate me a lot. I had a horrible week when I ate everything literally. I try to change today thanks to your tips and today I feel better and eat less and better hope I can continue like this. Hope I can work on feeling better. Thank u so much for your videos, I want to write this because I want to tell u how amazing,nice and beautiful are u thank you for helping me hope I can have a beautiful weight loss like u. Thank u so much I’ll work hard ❤

  • to the person reading this:
    You are amazing, stay safe and healthy during quarantine��
    i hope all your dreams become true.. mine is to hit 1k before my birthday and i am struggling to get there

  • I’ve been following your videos for a while and I had no idea you had PCOS! I have it too and have been struggling a little bit recently. Could you make a video specifically bout how to cope with it and ways to regulate hormone imbalances?

  • Omad is working for me. I have dropped over 30 pounds, one pant size and two shirt sizes!
    This is in 45 days. I use supplements to keep nutrition up and have a sensible dinner with veggies. No carbs or sugar at all.
    I feel better and look better and all I can say it’s working for me. The first week was pretty horrible. As is keto. Now I look forward to planning my dinner and have a cheat meal once a week to every ten days.
    I don’t do protein drinks or anything besides water coffee or tea. I’m looking forward to getting my blood work done to compare my levels before and after. I was given a prognosis of having a brain tumor. I truly believe that by not consuming any carbs or processed foods or sugar that my invisible friend is going to be gone soon! Wish me luck!

  • How many times a week did you exercise to loose weight as I feel like I am working out and nothing is happening! �� thank you for the great videos xx

  • I have gut problems that started at childhood. They were exacerbated when I was put on antibiotics for 10 years. Digesting food ( even very healthy food) is just hard on my body. When I discovered OMAD it was life changing. My digestive system needs the rest & now when I do eat I actually feel energized instead of feeling exhaustion & discomfort. I also love the free time only having to eat once a day gives me. Everyone needs to listen to their bodies & do what is best for them.

  • When I first started OMAD I was at 141pounds pre diabetic and hypertension. Month later I’m at 130 pounds labs results from 1 week ago showed no pre diabetes and no fatty liver that effected my hypertension before but most importantly no sign of it harming my body, but then again everyone is different. I always recommend this to anyone who can’t keep a diet my boyfriend first complained about it and then saw my results so he does the 20:4 I also have a lot of my friends on it.

  • Thats awesome! Great video as always! So cool that you gave a shout out to Cdub my partner in the community! Thanks so much for the great info! OMAD rocks for me! I do eat 2MAD occasionally on the weekends which helps keep the body satiated and shakes it up! Cheers! ������

  • Hey babe
    Wow I’ve been here before 10k subscribers!!! You have grown so much! So proud of you. I hope to get where you’re at one day

  • Hi queen
    Today’s video is as good as I expected it to be:* good tips ^^
    Lots of love
    As for my journey, I am 53kg as for today.. 5 more kgs to obtain my dream weight goal
    Feeling a bit guilty since I ate alot of watermelon today… the cravings were too strong…

  • I am currently like 65k/64kg and want to go Down to like 60kg/59kg
    Going to listen tonight and during the afternoon
    And every second night:)
    I’ll try to update^^
    Going to update my exact weight tomorrow morning(day1)��
    okay so i think my scale still isn’t working, but i went to the gym and exercised 2h and afterwards i went to play basketbal for 1.5h
    So i worked out again for like 2h with focus in cardio and i burned like 510.
    I think my problem is the good becuz i am eating a lot in the afternoon and a lot of chocolat and sugary foods so i’ll try to avoid to eat a lot of sugar the next days.
    My skin will thank me��
    Couldn’t work out becuz of my knee:(
    Weighed myself (64.65kg)
    so today i binged:(
    I am not proud of that. Tomorrow i am planning on having a pre breakfast walk, maybe even Jogging and having a super healthy breakfast wich i saw in a Video of a vs model:))
    Cw:still 64.7kg
    Walked a lot today and didn’t eat that much in the evening even though i had bad cravings in the morning (i gave into them a little bit but not too much)
    Cw 64.3kg
    I didn’t go to the gym and kinda binged so i am trying to do better tomorrow!

  • (Mum of our channel speaking) I was doing SO well during the pandemic, weight loss and more exercise than I have EVER done! But then we started fostering sick kittens (their journey’s are on our channel) but now I just sit and munch and watch kittens all day and I’m back up to where I was to start with �� nightmare… but the kittens are seriously cute ��

  • I’m so happy because you’ve inspired me so much and I’ve finally managed to start losing weight with your advice especially intermittent fasting has been working for me thank you so much love you so so much ✨✨����❤️❤️

  • I don’t think this has been covered in your videos-or maybe I missed it-but are you into natural/organic skincare products? Specifically I am trying to make the transition to natural body moisturizer and healthier/more nontoxic sunscreens. However, I have just tried random moisturizers from the health food store and haven’t found a good one. (Many also include fragrances I’m allergic to).
    I guess I am wondering, if you’ve given any though to healthy skincare products/ingredients and ones to avoid? I would love to see a video on this topic. Just a suggestion:)

  • Love this video!! Love that they are more lifestyle based rather than your average “mindset” changes… completely relatable and totally inspired �� ya Rachel x

  • Is it true that once you have been On a diet and you are not eating as much as you use to for example like I use to have 3 meals a day literally �� and now I have 1 plus like an apple and it fills me up so after your body gets use to not having as mich does your belly get smaller and then when you are comming off your diet do you not eat as much? Hopefully that makes sense ��������xxx

  • I’m from Perú and we have been un quarantine for 2 months and we will be for a month more or so. I have been working out but I don’t have any weight and I can’t buy bc quarantine and I have lost soooo much musle, I feel so frustrated

  • I love watching your videos. I’ve lost 20 lbs so far in my journey towards a healthier lifestyle. You inspired me to start meal prepping. That has made it much easier to stay on track. Thank you:)

  • Subscribed halfway through this video, for once the title is not clickbait it’s ACTUALLY useful!! Didn’t even know you could mute people, pshhh and I thought I had social media figured out!

  • Sleep is on point for me. Paying attention to getting enough calories and eating the healthy foods I love and make me feel good. But I can never stick to exercising because I get so sore for 3 days, I will not want to train again after I recovered. Is it normal in the beginning to get extra sour? Will it get less with time? Should I do leas intense workouts? Help!

  • These habits are soooo good and it’s very evident that these habits changed your life. I love all these habits and YES to curating what content we consume. Soooo good!

  • This may seem strange but do you think you could do a video about how to pick out good produce? I’m trying to eat/cook more and am realizing I have NO IDEA what good fruits and veggies look like and get overwhelmed and discouraged and pick up a pack of junk food.

  • OMAD is fine for a few months near the end. Back to trying to add muscle 16-18 hour fasting window is more doable. Plus if you not doing keto you need to be concerned with carbs and fats in the same meal. At least OMAD over an hour or so and semi break it up.

  • I need to know how to successfully get through Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. These holidays are the worse to try to struggle through. Please do a special video for this.

  • I love how you have gradually been reintroducing color into your life. I’m especially fond of the houseplants. As I live in the woods, it would be a bit superfluous for me, but I understand the need for that connection to the green.:)
    I like your decision to try a new hair color. I’m glad you’ve kept the length. I have long hair myself. I associate it with having a free spirit. I allow the sun to color my hair from medium brown to honey gold. Even at my advanced age, I have very little grey. My beard tells a different story, though.:)
    I don’t quite understand the tattoos, but I like that they add color to your self definition. Please keep uploading to YouTube. I’m not going to Instagram just yet. One platform at a time.:)

  • I’m amazed at how kind and sweet you are looking like in this video. Your eyes are smiling and you seem balanced and happy. Also, this hair color suits you very well.

  • You should also take your measurements instead of the scale in addition to pictures, it’s much better cause you can see the progress better

  • Hi Rachel, I remember you following a ket diet, how come did you make this switch? I’m trying to figure out the best diet to stick to and I’m looking at keto or just low carb generally:) thanks

  • can anyone recommend me like ANYTHING to figure out how to stop having super sore muscles all the time? i really don’t think I’m not getting enough recovery in and i’m also stretching a lot:(

  • Thank you so much for the kind, beautiful videos. I struggle daily with PTSD, and self care is daunting to me. But your videos give so many great ideas to get yourself outside your head, and the presentation makes me feel no pressure. Thank you & all the love ����

  • I’m obsessed with your house interior just Beautiful, I’m Absolutely obsessed with mustard yellow and blush pink.
    LOVE lOVE lOVE ����������

  • I’ve got to get back onto omad again. I can sit down and eat 2000-3000 cals in one sitting easily. Then I don’t feel hungry for the rest of the day. I usually eat again out of habit.

  • watch Dr. Nick Zyrowski guys… he knows what is talking about…. OMAD is really good

  • You are right with all habits you mention ❤ I will add to that list daily meditation which help me dealing with my emotions and over reacting �� Love your tattoos ��

  • What are ur thoughts about weight loss plateaus…? I have been stuck like anything…U have helped me a lot though. Thankkyou!:))

  • I think meal-prepping is a big one for a lot of people. It’s just so much easier to make better choices when you have healthier options already planned, prepped, and waiting for you. This was a great video with lots of helpful and doable tips that really make a difference. However, the lack of bunny footage means I can only give a 4/5.:)

  • for the first time I’ve worked out for 6 days straight �� i always used to give up on 3rd day, also m trying to eat less than before☺️ m so excited, not looking back now

  • I was hoping to get information regarding your selected fitness watch (seen in the lat pull clip). I’m looking to purchase one to track my exercise routine, which is entirely performed at home due to the isolation order induced by the coronavirus epidemic. Thanks for sharing your inspirational content.

  • When I tell you, I never really take into consideration what a YouTuber is saying usually when it comes to health because I notice they are already noticeably slimmer than me, but she really helps thoroughly explain it to me, and I absorb all the info she’s saying

  • Thanks alot. Really enjoyed this video. I really like these vibes, music and the importance of self care ✨
    To add something critical I think a bit more body positivity would be great, because I think many people, many women can not hear often egough that they’re beautiful the way they are. That a bit of tummy is hella normal and that body hair does not matter because feeling good matters.

  • The link to the free nutrition kickstart guide has the “Apply” word from the next sentence as part of the link which makes it not work. Just a head’s up to anyone clicking it, just remove the Apply at the end and the link will work.

  • I love to look after and care for everyone but myself. I hope i can really try and do some small little habits that can change my life and to start loving myself.

  • i’m gonna leave a comment so i can ACTUALLY start loosing weight by promising updates �� starting weight: 178.6 pounds day 2: 177.4 ❤️

  • i got to know you from your 30 healthy habits video from a few years ago first. so seeing this immediately made me feel nostalgic and thankful. how much i’ve grown since i’ve started watching you… crazy to think. thank you!

  • this was a great video with extremely useful tips but i think the main thing i took away from this was cutting salad onions with scissors. i have genuinely been getting the chopping board out every time i want to chop them. my life has CHANGED. ��������

  • I became vegan a week ago and I’ve lost 5 pounds. And I always feel full, I’m not contributing to animal cruelty, and I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been.:)))))

  • Your lifestyle videos are always so beautifully made.
    If anyone wants the tips at a glance:
    1. Sleep matters
    2. Don’t always be in a deficit (eat enough)
    3. Variety in your diet
    4. Swap the scales
    5. Meal prep
    6. Smart programming (planning your workout)
    7. Curate the content you consume
    8. Quit multi-tasking

  • The quality of your content has always been so good. You’re very eloquent in the way that you speak. I really appreciate this video. All of this advice is very feasible. Also, you mentioned things that I had never really considered before.

  • Rachel can you make a video about resetting your habits and solidifying your mindset for the better? I always self-sabotage.. and Im unsure how to pull myself out of it!!

  • Went to ritual and read their reviews. Lot of bad reviews about customer service. I was going to get prenatals but they dont put in dha which is essential so makes me question their other formulas…

  • I also think of sleep as a waste of time and I typically run with 3 hours sleep. I want to change this habit because even though I feel great and alive being 29, sleep deprivation might catch up to me later. If the topic interest you Rachel, can you please share how you’ve made the change from not liking sleep to respecting sleep time?

  • I can totally relate to your lifestyle, Rachel! I love organising my day and getting stuff done off lists (not as detailed as your bullet journals though haha!), love routine and have sets of habits/rituals (eatingI can literally eat the same oatmeal over and over again and not get bored). However I do admit it can get tiring as sometimes I fixate so much on being productive that I do many things in a day, oftentimes multitasking and also not taking the time to SLEEP! I love how you’ve shared your journey on developing these healthy habits on top of your already healthy lifestyleit just means there’s always room to modify/improve what is already good:) hopefully will be disciplined enough to rest tonight! love from Malaysia xoxo

  • You’re videos are always so pleasing to the eyes and ears. Well spoken and intelligent and a beautiful environment to look at. �� Thank you

  • Great video! Is it effective to mix 16/8 fasting with the occasional OMAD? Say, 16/8 fasting most of the week with one or two days of OMAD mixed in?

  • I need help because I have been doing Keto & IF for over 2 years but my energy is Low and I take all my Supplements and eat Great Healthy Foods, etc… What is Wrong? Why is my Energy Low? It affects my workouts!!!

  • Started Keto diet yesterday. I messed up big time. I have too much meat in my first week. I’m just glad I realized my first week instead of 6 months or a year in.

  • You mention studies about benefits of longer fasting periods every once in a while. I wonder if you could
    1) provide links to those studies?
    2) make a video on that topic?
    Longer fasting is something that I am kind of interested in, to try it once a year, but I am a bit at a loss on how to prepare for it.

    Your channel is super interesting. Thank you!

  • Doing 23/1 I’m doing fine it’s my first day and for my meal I ate some oats blueberries and a single egg at 2PM. Cant wait to be skinny again ��

  • I started to do the Omar diet yesterday. And I know I haven’t been doing it for a long time (since I just started) but I see that I only ate 614 calories the whole day, (mostly because I get full very fast and I can’t eat a lot of food) and I asume that’s how many calories I might eat everyday if I continue to do the diet. Will that slow down my metabolism?

  • I have been doing OMAD before it was popular… i have been doing it now for 5 years… i dropped 50 lbs the first 6 months. Then The next 4.5 years I have been doing omad to maintain my weight. In my one meal I make sure I get the appropriate amount of calories and vitamins for the next day… all about listening to your body.

  • i’m sorry but this is full of shit. i’ve lost a lot of weight with omad. i never regained any of the weight. the ONLY reason someone regains all the weight is because they eat like a fat fuck again. slowing metabolism is a myth. it’s all about calories.

  • I watch very few youtube channels regularly but yours is one of my favourites. Thank you for being such a positive influence, Rachel!

  • You are a wonderful teacher. I discovered you today and have enjoyed this and learning from you about plants. Thank you for sharing!

  • I have been doing OMAD (no sugar, soda etc) for 7 months and it’s definitely not working for me. I have gained 4 lbs eating once a day:(

  • Autophagy is in trasition from about 12 hr fast to 16 hr fast. After 16 hr fasting autophagy is in full swing. So omad is certainly better thar 16/8 hr fast or any other IF.

  • Thank you for another helpful video! I was wondering (as a video idea) if you could show us your grocery trips, as I am wondering what they key things you buy are and I could take some tips! Love you and your videos x

  • Did OMAD the wrong way (way too low calories) and went off it for two weeks and gained 20 pounds (fat, bloating, etc). Everyday I woke up I felt myself getting bigger. Took me months of just not dieting to get my metabolism back to normal. I think it can work but you need to track calories and make sure you are getting enough calories to keep your metabolism up.

  • It’s kinda challenging to intake food with enough nutrition for your body. And you’re ending up too stuffed of your stomach which isn’t healthy for your body.. OMAD seems ok good for some people I guess

  • I tried OMAD 7 months back just when I wanted to shed 5% more body fat. But I felt bloated after eating dinner.. I would prefer warrior diet over OMAD. WD is 20:4 intermittent fasting. with 1-2 fruits allowed in day time with big feast at night.. so u can divide that big meal into 2-3 over 4 hours of eating window.. sm1 suggested me to eat 1 apple in day time.. although i had only green tea and black coffee but had not fruits.. just eat at night 2 dinner.. 1 small n 1 one last.. have protein with each meal..it helps.

  • Wow this woman doesnt know shit. “Dont restrict your calories with IF”…..So according to her you could do IF, eat 9000 calories a day and still lose weight….the internet is full of shit.

  • I can’t believe it but I’ve actually been sticking to a 16/8 diet with not that much trouble. It’s really helped me stop with my late night binge eating which has been a godsend.
    But being vegetarian, a full time student and part time worker, and just overall not at all a chef, I’m having trouble finding foods that are nutritionally balanced and not heavily processed. I think this is why I haven’t lost any weight despite moving more, drinking a lot more water and cutting out the binging. Would anyone happen to have any tips on how to not eat like a lazy American?

  • I am currently doing 20:4. Started with 16:8 and then 18:6. I stop eating at 4:00 pm and currently eat at 12:00 noon. With the other methods I find that once food enters my body I go crazy and want to eat the world at all times during my eating period. That’s why 20:4 works for me since I have a big meal at 12 and then at 4 again so there is no time for over indulging. Also I love that by having my last meal at 4 I have enough time to digest my food and feel great at bed time. If I stop eating later I can’t sleep and feel full for hours. I have lost weight but I don’t know how much since I don’t own a scale. I just see it in the mirror and my clothes. Scales make me crazy and want to step on them all the time so I just don’t have one. I’ve been in on this for 3 weeks and can see difference. I’m loving it.

  • I love her videos, but OMAD totally works for me. Lost more weight than with 16:8. OMAD was not even planned, I just wasn’t too hungry before and after my meal, and the decreased meal prep and dirty dishes is a bonus!

  • I reached for my Ritual bottle literally 2 seconds before you mentioned them! It was uncanny. I’ve been taking them for 2 years now and my hair/skin/nails are fantastic and my energy is much more stable. Plus I’m not deficient in anything when I get my blood tests. I’m glad they sponsored you!

  • OMAD doesnt have to be 23:1, it can be 22:2 or 21:3, just a longer meal or like starting with an avocado, making your meal and eating it, without an 1 hour time restrict. At least as I’ve heard from others.

  • Omad is ok, but eating 2000 calories in one meal, means you have food sitting in your stomach for 6 hours or so. Omad is still same as 16/8 because post meal absorption.

  • Hey Autumn! I was wondering if you have any advice on how to eat until satiated for those prescribed appetite suppressants, such as ADHD medications (stimulants, e.g., methylphenidate/Ritalin and amphetamine/Adderall)? Two problems here… the first is obvious, and that is undereating. The second is far sneakier, and that is overeating once the meds have worn off.

    Any advice/thoughts?

  • I like big meals and I want to loose weight. OMAD is helping me meet both criteria. 3 months in and it’s working. I count 2000 calories for my one meal.

  • Thanks for addressing the fertility issues. I wanted to try Omad just for fun to see if I can do it. One of those “I tried omad for a week” type things but then I heard about the fertility issues so I kinda freaked out. I was going to do more research…eventually. Thanks for the great info! Much appreciated ❤️❤️

  • Thnks for clearing stuff about kisspeptin. From all the videos that l hv seen on Omad… you are the only one talking about the actual study about kisspeptin ��

  • Hi!, I’ve been doing 16:8 IF and worked my way up to 20:4 IF which is practically OMAD but i’m dealing with weight plateau for 3 weeks now, I tried carb cycling but my weight is not moving (taking in sweets and chips every once in a while, with 1-2 servings (during OMAD) ) and I’ve been doing swimming twice a week as well. How do you break through this?

    Looking forward to more tips from you!

  • I’ve been watching videos about intermittent fasting from trainers for a while now so it’s very interesting to find a channel from a nutritionist. This seems more informed and it suggests more practical ways to introduce it to a regular person’s lifestyle.

    Your videos have stuck with me more and since then, I’ve gotten more results in two weeks than the 2 months I did listening to other channels.

    Can’t wait to see more of your content. ❤️

  • I love your videos, have been watching for years. You are so inspiring ✨ thank you for all the tips. Also, I find your voice and all of your videos so calming ��

  • So,
    Q: Does OMAD (=type of IF) slow your metabolism?
    A: By itself no, unless coupled with unsustainable calorie restriction which is indeed associated with negative effects (infertility, hormonal imbalance, etc.)

    Q: Then, why is it ‘accused’ of slowing your metabolism?
    A: Because it might be practically challenging for some to meet their calorie-intake needs within a ‘one-hour’ meal.

  • My God, why do these people think they have discovered something new, jesus nothing worse than a burnt out nobody who discovered the light, do people really take on this crap

  • Hey Autumn �� I’m a recent subscriber & just wanted to say that I really appreciate these videos you make (Factual information is rare these days so channels like yours truly help). Also wanted to ask that how can I make my meal calorie dense if I’m following the omad diet as I’m struggling with that aspect (& I’m a vegan), Any advice?

  • I broke my 3 day water fast today and after eating I realised that I wasnt even hungry because my body was in ketosis and I felt so clean and energised on the inside. It was my mind tricking me into thinking I was hungry. Gonna start again tommorow and aim for a week to properly cleanse my body of toxins.

    Also for some of you that may be concerned I have done tons of research on how to carry out a healthy and efficient water fast without harming my body ����

  • Wow, speaking of getting it all wrong. I have been doing OMAD for over a year, and lost over 70 pounds and still counting.

    I have never felt better in my life. Started of with 16:8 as most people do,and gravitated to OMAD, because it suited my lifestyle. YES, IT SUITED MY LIFESTYLE. I had more time to do stuff that mattered with intense focus and concentration, not to mention energy levels through the roof! When I break my fast, I eat well, typically keto and I enjoy every morsel of food that enters my mouth, with the best night’s sleep you can imagine, something I struggled with all my life.

    The problem I found with 16:8, is that once you start eating at noon or whatever, it just opens the flood gates for me, and you tend to eat more than you should. Starting eating window earlier is not an option for me on a work day. It just messes my head, and brings in meal preps which is way to much thinking to be sustainable FOR ME.With one meal I find quite the opposite. I eat close to 7pm and once I eat, then I pretty much am out when I hit the pillow. There is no time to overeat for me. Of course you can mix it up with 16:8 or 18:6 or even alternate day, depending on what you are looking to achieve, but so far OMAD as a baseline has been going very well for me.

    Take it from someone who works 7-5pm everyday. It’s even easier to do when you are at work. My work keeps me very occupied, so I have NO issues on a social front. There is no time for being social anyway (unless you don’t have a very stimulating job).

    Most difficult time to do OMAD is on the weekends, But I have found a way around it, so I am mentally occupied, but in a fun way. alternatively, I do 16:8 or 3 meals on the weekends. But my weekdays its OMAD through and through. Do what works for you. But don’t ignore OMAD as a viable option. I just wanted to put my testimonial up, because there is a lot of misinformation about OMAD. nothing beats experience.

    BTW, I am writing this at 22 hours of fasting!!!

  • I think you had good points. I think people need to find what works for them and do it. We all know what the mainstream world tells us has not been working. OMAD is amazing for me and I will never eat another way. One point is you can move your window to have lunch with your co-works and go back to normal eating hour the next day. You can also just do a 16-8 that day. Thank you again for talking about me.

  • idk, for me its better if i have something to do while eating. sometimes i end up viewing eating as boring or useless, so i tend to rush through it so i can get back to what i was doing. if i watch something for example while eating, its gonna slow me down because i want to spend more time watching it rather than eating quickly and then having to pause it

  • Muslims have been doing OMAD for centuries. It’s apart of ISLAM. My body requires 2,400 calories per day…….

    I eat that in a 4 hour period 20/4..ive lost 70 lbs in 13 months…..never eat after the sun goes down!!!

  • Started keto this past april 2020, as of last week was down 41 pounds, as of today, down 37 pounds. ��. I gained 4 pounds in less than a week. After watching this video, I think not drinking enough water might be the culprit. Let’s hope, because I’m pretty discouraged this morning.

  • I’ve been doing ADF (36/12) for months now but I want to switch to OMAD because I started with weight lifting. Would that be a good idea?

  • Gurl ur body is my goal but the only thing keeping me away from it is my legs everytime Ive done a lot workouts but my legs don’t slim at all if u have any more tips on sliming ur legs pls help a girl out

  • Cold fresh pineapple chunks in a hot day has never tasted so good as when I screw up trying to stay to keto diet. I am really not a big meateater. Perhaps If I tried a strict vegandiet I would get tired of soy and I could mess it up by surpricingly drooling over some chicken, oh Messing up fasting is easy nowadays, I simply call it intermittent fasting when I am too tired to get out of bed or to stay awake. But gee, folks, Try resist cold pineapple on a strict ketodiet. I managed for two weeks and now I had two slices. Michelin here I come, I better burn it off with swimming or something.
