    Hi, There is approximately 28 to 29grams of protein in 10 oz plain nonfat Greek Yogurt

    I saw something online about how to measure flour appropriately so that you don’t get too much. Instead of spooning it in and leveling off, try putting the measuring cup inside the bag of flour and use a fork to fill the measuring cup. Don’t pack it down. Once it’s full, you can level off with a knife. The other option is to get a flour sifter and sift the flour before measuring. I think that getting too much flour may have been an issue. I also did add about 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk to mine. They ended up a lot better. I hope this helps!

    Hi Naomi,
    I know we don’t need this info until the second phase, but was wondering if you had received a response on this recipe?
    Thanks!

    I have no education as a doctor/therapist, but my daughter had the same issues with Covid and not being able to taste or smell. Eventually she got these senses back, but it took time. Until you get your taste back, chewing gum may be your answer instead of eating food with no taste. You can also get lots of flavors (sweet, sour) for your water to see if you can taste any of them. These won’t add any calories to your diet, so you won’t feel bad about yourself. Another idea is to create a meal that is similar to what you make for your husband using the food exchanges. And maybe add extra veggies or a salad (no cal dressing) if you still feel hungry. It’s really hard to make something for family and eat something that is totally different that doesn’t thrill you, so in my experience, making something similar and sitting down to eat with them helps. Also, if you are having depression issues (which you may not, so just a thought), you may want to talk to a doctor. I’ve been on an antidepressant for 14 years and it helps me tremendously. Another thought is that in just a few weeks of following a plan, you may have small changes in your physique that aren’t captured in your pictures. Don’t give up on yourself and don’t beat yourself up. It’s really hard for a lot of people. You aren’t alone!

    I think there may be an error in the recipe for the brownie balls. The recipe calls for 1 1/3 cups of protein powder. Should this be 1 1/3 scoops protein? There is a very big difference in scoops and cups. Please double check this. Thanks.

    Hi, I’m 53 and have done many of Nicole’s challenges. I also used to compete for fun a long, long time ago. Oats are actually super healthy and help with blood sugar levels. Sweet potatoes are starchy carbs which you could swap instead of the oats if you feel better about it (but check the exchange list). Honestly, you should just try what Nicole lays out for you for the 45 days, and stick with it. You may be very surprised at how good you feel and look by the end of that time if you do it exact.

    Yeah, I agree with Lesa that something appears wrong here. The nutrition information for the post workout meal on low days says it should be 212 calories, 29 g protein and 24 g carbohydrate. The nutrition information for the high day is 272 calories, 29 g protein and 39 g carbohydrate. So obviously, the post workout meal shouldn’t be exactly the same. Either the low day should be less than 2 muffins or the high day is more. So I believe that there is a typo here. Can you please check?

    You may want to purchase a 6 in pan because it is very deep. You need all the room.

    I bought the Vantage M and I’m a little disappointed. The fitbit was better at reading heart rate while exercising. The Vantage M works better when you are sitting still. I had to buy the additional chest strap for it. I use the Polar M400 more than the vantage M. The other problem I’ve had with the Vantage M is that if I don’t take it off right after I work out I will get a rash on my wrist. Honestly, the M400 is much better and if you don’t want the chest strap, the fitbit is probably a better buy.

    Hi, if you can find Ezekial bread it will be much closer to the macros. Ezekial bread only has 80 calories per slice, it looks like the bread you have is much higher in calories (and carbs).

    Hi Renee, What site is it where you can get 1/2 off the polar V800? I have one that is getting old and it’s also my favorite. I think I’ve about worn it out. I also have the V400 and I really like it too.
    Thanks, Linda

    My all out sprint is just over 8 mph. If I try to run 10mph I think I may end up against the wall 🙂 Is it OK to just run as fast as I possibly can?
