Does anyone know some fun or life hacks to use while doing the one bite at a time challenge? Anything is a good idea for meπŸ˜‚

  • DietID_TeamDietitians Yes! Try eating with your non dominant hand - it's super hard to eat quickly. You can also try to put your utensil down between each bite as a good reminder to finish your bite before the next one.

I kw that fruit juice is not the best option, cuz it's fiber free and full of sugar.. So how about detox and healthy juices which contain fruits and vegetables?? Is it good or still bad cuz it's ...
  • annefood Hey @AhmedZ - Good question. Unfortunately many juices that contain veggies are made up of mostly fruit juice, which is why they taste sweet. As for 100% green veggie juices, they don't pose the...
  • AhmedZ thank u for ur answer, r u saying that fruit juice and fruit + veggie juice r same bad because of the sugar problem? and the only really healthy juice is only veggie juice?
