One Weight-Loss Approach Fits All? No, Not Even Close

If I had to identify one issue that dominates this forum it is weight. We see many threads suggesting one or other of the numerous approaches to weight-loss. (And quite a few about the need for weight gain!) Followed by "Didn't work for me, nothing does.", "I actually gained weight when I did that.", and so on.

In looking for a New Year's Eve post, when I saw this story, I really did think it worth posting.

Happy New Year to all our readers!

Interesting that by far the majority of the emoji/emoticons/icons now available which represent food are "manufactured" foods with extremely dubious nutritional credentials. Doughnuts, sorry, donuts, cakes, ice cream,... Could they have been pushed forward into Unicode with the backing of the food industry? Surely not. Wicked thought.

  • I really hate emojis. They are all far too small for me to make out without changing my browser window in some way so I just ignore them.

    On a more positive note...

    Happy New Year, helvella, and I hope that 2017 is a really good year for you. :)

  • Thank you - really interesting, since so many doctors [endos in particular] are still shouting CI-CO, which is simply ludicrous! Happy New Year to you helvella! Take care and be well :-)
