Healthy food is cheap to make and if you know what you're doing, you can make it taste good too.
If you have a target nearby, they have packs of six large chicken breast for under 3 dollars per pound. I like to trim them up and bread them in panko mixed with ground pepper, oregano, rosemary, and paprika. Then, you just fry them in peanut or corn oil. Super cheap to make, tasty and very healthy.

Oats, rice, bananas, peanuts, sunflower seeds, and beans/lentils are cheap and healthy. Don't be afraid to season your food if you don't like things bland. Spices are proven to help slightly with weight loss.

Anonymous 18524

Learn to cook if you don't know how to, you'll save a lot of money. Also if you're really broke you might want to start dumpster diving, there's a lot of ressources about it on the internet.

For weight loss? Soups. Pasta, potatoes, carrots, chicken in bulk are cheap. Seasonings/broth you can pick and choose.

Anonymous 19256

Sauerkraut is really cheap, and also very filling. You could try look up recipes for that. I myself really like caramelised sauerkraut with chicken (I buy legs because those are cheapest, cheaper than filets or drumsticks)


how do i deal with my period more naturally? Anonymous 19190[Reply]

hi everyone, sorry if this is TMI but does anyone have any like recommendations on how to deal with period cramps more naturally? my cramps are so bad, and i’m on the heavier flow side. I’ve always taken medicine, but honestly I’m tired of taking it all the time and I’ve seen people say that you can build an immune system against it? idk how true that is but it still makes me nervous. i’ve tried to find some methods like heating pads and drinking a lot of water but it doesn’t seem to help. any advice is appreciated.

Is CBD legal in your country/state? I enjoy smoking marijuana on my period

Anonymous 19196

raspberry leaf tea helps a lot!

+1 on the marijuana hahaha

> I’ve seen people say that you can build an immune system against it?
Medicine as in painkillers I presume? It's true you can become resistant to some medication but that's not the case with generic painkillers like Paracetemol and Ibuprofen. It's called building tolerance. Check the leaflet that comes with your medication or ask your doctor/gynecologist about it (or just google it).

I LOVE getting intense period pain right before a nursing exam. It's so much fun
and this is after taking 200mg ibuprofen


What's an indicator that you're attractive? Anonymous 17855[Reply]

For me, it would have to be
>someone paying for your meal/coffee
>strangers smiling at you
>having your first kiss <20 years
How about you?

Women who don't know me saying I'm attractive

Anonymous 19074

When I was a teen/early 20s I would dress more androgynous and only ever got approached by asian guys (no idea why) or bi girls. Now that I have a more "professional" look I'm popular within my tech niche with moids, but I'm invisible everywhere else and to women.

Im pretty sure there was a study on match.com or something saying that 'unconventional' women were most popular among men? I'm not conventionally attractive, so my experience has been being invisible most of the time, but having 1-2 really obsessed people per year. Also I look about 10 years younger than I am, so I'm worried some of those people are just closet pedophiles.

why is that pic so accurate

Nona, please… If a man respects you he will remember stuff about you without lovebombing. It's called "being interested in your partner"

people treating you kinder in generally and talking to you first. I get treated better with light makeup and put together outfit than my usual clothes. I was also treated better younger


How do I deal with oily skin? + general care tips? Anonymous 19227[Reply]

I never had this problem before until recently. Had a surgery that left me pretty debilitated so barely any self-care being done, and honestly, never bothered much with it. I don't wanna Google because Google is trash. Any pro tips please?

Anonymous 19228

i had PCOS but once i started taking spironolactone my oily skin disappeared. and less facial hair too. consult telemedicine for it

Anonymous 19229

tbh unless you have bad acne or anything like that oily skin is best left relatively untouched. too many products can just cause more buildup and therefore more problems.

stick to using a cleanser (and double cleanse every day), moisturiser, toner (if you have any specific issues like hyperpigmentation find one that targets that issue), and a sunscreen. if you use these consistently your skin will thank you for it.

i also have oily skin and i use the cerave cleanser (the one for oily skin), neutrogena hydroboost moisturiser, and the peach slices toner.

good luck nona!! hope this helps :) <3

Aluminum free deoderant. Do you use it? I am paranoid about getting breast cancer because I'm genetically predisposed so I'm always trying new brands but I haven't found any that are effective at making me not stinky.

This is what I use too (Tom's Lavender deodorant), and I think it works very well.

Anonymous 19187

I can't even buy something as mild and tame as 5mg melatonin over the counter in the EU because they deem that dangerous, I'll take my chances with deodorant allowed in the EU.

Anonymous 19193

Secret Aluminum Free is the only brand that works for me. Anything coconut oil based or “natural” leaves me stinky asf.

Anonymous 19213

the link you provided notes that when considering aggregate exposure to aluminum from sources other than pharmaceuticals, the total exposure could exceed safe limits.
i used to use glycolic acid in a spray bottle which worked just fine, but now i use dove aluminum free for fragrance

Anonymous 19218

if you shower regularly and dont have any known medical issues, you probably don't stink. The idea that you go "nose blind" to your own stink is a gaslighting tactic when people want women to feel dirty but she points out she doesn't think she smells bad, the only way for someone to go noseblind would take months, if not years and you'd have to notice you regularly stink too. If you haven't noticed any smell on you before you aren't just going to take up one day, smell like shit and just not know it

how to look good while off guard? Anonymous 19204[Reply]

recently this girl on my campus who doesn't like me has been snatching photos of me looking horrendous and sending it to people. Does anyone have any tips on how to just look better even when not paying attention? Ive tried to stop the photos but nothing has worked, so I may as well embrace it.

We used to be friends until I told her I thought it'd be best we go our separate ways, she did not like that one bit.

Anonymous 19208

1. Why is this asshole doing this to you?
2. This is usually a matter of bad posture. Try to fix yours, style your hair better and take care of your skin too, but posture is more important, try doing some exercises to fix this

Anonymous 19209

God, what a bitch. I see why you cut your losses with her. Yes, posture makes a huge difference in how you look. Straighten your spine out, contact your abdomen slightly, and don't roll your shoulders back. Eventually, it'll become second nature

Anonymous 19212

I'd report it to whoever's equipped to deal with that within your uni. Collect evidence, get her reprimanded.

thank you for the advice nona! ^O^


going on birth control soon, any recommendations/tip? Anonymous 19200[Reply]

any major downsides or types to avoid completely?

also are there any that have helped like lose weight??? i know BC goes hand in hand w weight gain and i wanna avoid that since im kinda chubby already :P

Anonymous 19211

Made me crave cheese, made me crazy, made me gain 10 lbs, fucks with your brain in general. I don't know the point of getting on it in the first place. If you don't want to get pregnant then don't have sex with someone you don't actually completely trust and use condoms if you do and you're in your fertile window. Your periods are harder without it but you can also just suck it the fuck up and take a midol because it's better than being on hormones and brain altering pills.

Anonymous 19214

I also recently started taking contraceptives, I'm a little worried, because I think my anxiety has increased (I don't know if there would be any correlation). I don't think all pills make you gain weight, but I'm eating less and exercising more anyway.

Anonymous 19215

Pills equalized my moods but dampened them too. Good to rein in crazy periods. And not being pregnant.
That said, I regret taking them for so long. I finally feel like myself now, and it was a long time coming.


How do I stop cutting my hair? Anonymous 19188[Reply]

I know I've been depressed for quite awhile and that's probably why I do it. I've had a pixie/grown out pixie for over a couple years now. Just recently, I promised my moid I wouldn't cut it for 3 years. But, I get urges every so often. I settled on the fact that I'll grow out my hair as a sign of strength and commitment. What do you nonas suggest? I don't like having my hair this short btw, it's not because I want to impress my moid or other moids. I just want to feel pretty and feminine again

Anonymous 19192

I had short hair for years until one day I came to the conclusion that it was causing me to feel less feminine/more insecure. Throw your shears away!

Anonymous 19199

Ty nona, I don't cut my own hair but I do feel less feminine and more insecure with short hair. It's a bad coping mechanism I have when I think things are out of control but it makes me sad whenever I have super short hair. So, I guess I just have to put more faith/confidence in myself

What are some exercises for building leg muscle fast?

Anonymous 19163

Anonymous 19194

25lbs is a lot of weight for bicep curls, if you can do 3 set of 10 reps with that you'll build great ceps, if 10 reps gets to easy for you, you can do 21's
if 25 is to much weight for one hand, use both hands like this

Anonymous 19201

Occasionally I do, nowadays I use kpop for my exercise needs and I alternate if I get bored. Not looking for results, just want to be healthy


Period pain tips? Anonymous 19157[Reply]

I have extremely bad period pains on the first day. So bad I have to skip school or anything I have planned that day because of the pain. It usually includes cramps along with vomiting and an aching pain in my uterus. I refuse to get on birth control so does anyone know any at home remedies to ease the pain? Sorry if this was TMI.

Anonymous 19167

If it's that bad it's likely abnormal and seeing a gyno would be your best bet… it sounds like you might have something like endometriosis. I relate to not wanting to go on BC and many doctors might recommend that as a first attempt at treatment because it's cheap, try to find a good one who will listen to your concerns and explain possibilities for alternative treatments. However if you truly have a disorder like endo, there may not be many other options besides surgery.
At home you can try using a hot water pack or using NSAIDs (ibuprofen, aspirin). Some women find that changing their diet to avoid certain foods helps.

Anonymous 19169

Gyno + laparoscopy would remove any Endo/cysts making periods painful. No hormones needed

If a doctor immediately throws you on BC with no further testing do not see that doctor again, BC can make endo worse

Anonymous 19180

Honestly, masturbation is probably the most immediate and effective period pain relief there is

Also staying hydrated + taking ibuprofen. I drink a lot of sugar-free Gatorade or something with electrolytes during my period

Anonymous 19181

Anons are right you should probably go to a gyno, but it you can't/don't want to, try painkillers with a different active ingredient than what you've been using so far. Not all active ingredients work the same.
