    What a wonderful feeling! Before the sleeve, I could NEVER have gone on vacation and come back the same (or similar) weight. I also couldn't get through the summer, a weekend, a visit from a friend, a birthday party, a night out to dinner, an up, a down...you get it, I ATE and gained over everything!

    I understand about the food obsession. It ruled my life for too many years and now it's freeing to be able to think about food as just another aspect of living, not life itself.
    Good luck and you're doing amazingly wonderful!

    Back to back trips and only gained 5 lbs? I would call that a win...especially since you have lost 2 already. The important thing is that you survived, had fun, and didn't go off the rails. YAY!!

    I'm glad you enjoyed your trips, Pam.

    As for the constant obsession with food...I personally think some of us are simply wired to be that way.

    After a lifetime of observing and being around naturally thin people, I notice they don't think about food until they're actually hungry. Their appetite regulation naturally works. Some of them even forget to eat, whereas I've never forgotten to eat in my 35+ years of existence. I've always ruminated over food even when not hungry.

    Here is a great research paper to understand benefits of IF in men, but we women benefit as much too! Will post other great links.

    Effects of eight weeks of time-restricted feeding (16/8) on basal metabolism, maximal strength, body composition, inflammation, and cardiovascular risk factors in resistance-trained males

    I have some clients that workout intensely and I mean 2.5 hours every single day with no exceptions. They were in town back in April and we had our meeting at their rental home - I noticed they had a huge bowl of mixed nuts on the counter so I asked them and they said oh yeah - they eat them in moderation of course. I eat alot of pork and chicken which are both very high in protein.
    One snack mix I found that I keep on hand now is this - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...0?ie=UTF8&th=1

    I don't over indulge on them but I do eat them. I mainly don't eat too many because of the high calorie and fat content. But yes, I see the seasonal aspect of it.

    Thanks, Pam!!!

    Christie, I was reading in passing about a warning of the toxic levels in nuts and seeds if consumed continuously in the Paleo lifestyle. I eat nuts and seeds almost daily :-( I guess if you really think about it, it makes sense Paleo should focus on foods available and in season back in the day. Nuts and seeds were only available for short periods of time a year.

    Did all y'all catch the coconut oil warming on the USToday page??? Seriously! I'm glad as Sleevers we are adopting a moderate and balanced approach, I hope!

    I haven't tried it but I think they can. I noticed one day I commented on someone's blog then when I went back later and read it they must have changed it because my comment no longer made sense to what they had originally blogged.
