    @DJC3 (and others) following on from #defaultgate and my centrist dad standpoint this caught my eye and obviously fell into my confirmation bias elephant trap.

    According to the calculator the average BMI for men in my age group is 28,8 and my waist size is lovable. However, when I input height and weight in cms and kgs my BMI is a whole 1 lower 21,1 v 22.1

    Good morning chums

    Back to Earth with a bump today.. I had a buggar it day yesterday. Following on from a good hba1c, cholesterol and weight loss.. I had a I’m going to eat everything day.. so 8.2 this morning.. I’ve just caught up on so many posts. In response to IF and OMAD. I find intermittent fasting easy for me to follow and as for OMAD. I did this for around a month. It fit in with my teaching job well but my tea consumption increases so much.. I do find intermittent fasting is much better for me. I usually fast until between 12 and 2 and stop eating around 8. It’s not an exact science but I usually have a 6 hour food window. Yesterday was slightly different as I think I had. 4 hour fasting window and 20 hours of eating. Back to a form of normal today though..

    Have a lovely day peeps kim xx

    6 Wednesday morning. Pretty good after a bowl of oatmeal at bedtime.
    And I just learned that black coffee tastes as good as coffee with cream.

    I'm going to a Hallowe'en party later today. Hopefully I won't eat anything.

    Oh my. NOTHING tastes as good as coffee with cream except coffee with cream and brandy. Forgiven though - just don't keep making the same mistake:angelic: (Halloween sits very badly with my Baptist Sunday School start in life but then so does brandy in coffee. Fortunately, I am now a confirmed Anglican. The brandy is fine for Anglicans, Halloween not so much. Just shows what a devious, twisted old fella I am:arghh:)

    8.3 this morning, despite eating some ginger nuts last night to settle an upset stomach. It's not been quite the same since a rather disastrous go with Victoza a little way back. Otherwise everything is fine here in sunny London. Hope the little mini-ghosts and goblins eat all those Haribo sweets I bought in the supermarket tonight...or I may find myself tempted!
