Welcome to The Fast Diet forums! We’ve put together a short guide on how to use the forums.
Many people come to the forums looking for answers to questions they have about the diet. The first place to start is the search bar in the top right hand corner. See if there are posts on the issue or if anyone else has asked the same question. You might find your answer in there! If you don’t, you can either reply to a relevant topic or start a new one of your own. Please be aware of our posting guidelines.
You can also start topics in the forums. The forums list can be found here – if you post a topic, it will help people find it if you put it in the appropriate place. For example, a topic called “Help me, I get hungry at 2pm” will get more attention in the forum Coping strategies for hunger than in Announcements.
There are many ways to navigate the forums. At the top of each forum page are a set of links with explanations as shown below
If you like to keep up regularly with what people are discussing, use the active topics or recent comments links.
You have the ability to “Favorite” topics.
When you click the link, the thread is automatically added to the “Favorites” tab in your user profile.
You can also receive follow-up replies via email if you tick the “” box when you reply to a topic.
You can manage your favorites and subscriptions by going to the link at the top of each page which says “Your profile and forum activity”.
Once you’re in your user profile, you can see what topics you’ve started, what replies you’ve made, your list of favorite topics and any topics you’re following via email. All of these are public, so you can also browse other people’s posts, favorites and subscriptions – especially helpful when you know what great advice they give!
You can also find out more about other forum members by clicking on their name beside their posts. This takes you to their user profile page.
