Healthier Food Alternatives to a Healthier Me
Oh absolutely Hoser, couldn't agree more. I would love if I only ever had to steer my shopping cart thru the perimter of the grocery store, where all the "love" is. However, (deep sigh), I work 50 hrs a week outside of the home and have 2 young boys. So unfortunately our life at times requires processed food to keep the household running. Some veggies are fresh, but some are canned. I only have time to go grocery shopping every 2 wks, and fresh veggies don't keep that long. But one day, I dream of cooking all meals from scratch, I love to cook so much, just no time...

Healthier Food Alternatives to a Healthier Me
I always scour the organic aisle for Kashi products. They tend to incorporate more protein and more fiber than their counterparts. They have a great line of breakfast choices and the crackers are yummy also. Happy exploring!

Success on Day 1
Yeah don't be repulsed by size 12. After all, Marilyn Monroe was a size 12 and she was a GODDESS. :)

hungry soon after eating.
Fat free cottage cheese with some sugar free jelly. Lots of protein. Also, try roasted/salted soy nuts. They have more protein than regular nuts and they're more crunchy, so you get that "potato chip" like fix.

weird things you see people do at the gym
Evil - that's just job security. They're trying to keep us fat, so we keep paying to come back to their gym. Otherwise, if everyone got skinny, no one would come to the gym and they would go out of business. Personally, I think gyms and fitness clubs around the country are paying off McDonalds to make their food as fattening as possible! :) It's a conspiracy.

Hello
Oh hell no, there's no dying here. You've got kids to be a mamma to. You're here to get healthy. Yes, weight loss is part of that. But there's so much more you'll learn how to improve her at FS. Get comfy with using and navigating around Fatsecret. I spend hrs on this website and learn something new almost every day. And I'm not exactly uneducated either. :)

New Here...
Yes, get into the habit of recording everything you eat. Learn how to use the food journal and use it every day. Seeing is believing, it can be quite a wake up call. Someone here has a quote that I love, and I probably overuse it. "It you bite it, you gotta write it." Pretty simple - make yourself be accountable for everything you eat. Then you can take an honest look at how you eat, and see what you can improve.

Keeping it Off - life after weight loss
You're right Kate. There's conflicting opinions in the medical world of exactly how much exercise we need. It seems that all of us truly need an hour of exercise everyday (I mean you figure cavemen used to have to chase down their food!). But I think in an effort to not deter people from doing any exercise at all, they've scaled down the recommendations to 30-60 mins of exercise 5-7 days of the week. I suppose they figure that way they don't scare off the "all or nothing" folks. :)

Hello
There's no cheating with weighing, weigh yourself as much as you need to, to feel comfortable. And don't call it a "diet". Becuase once the weight's off, you don't stop what you're doing. Call it a lifestyle change, b/c the only way to keep the weight off is to maintain your healthy eating habits and exercise routines that you've gotten into. Count those condiments, count EVERYTHING, no matter how painful or insignificant is it. If you "bite it", then you gotta "write it". Force yourself to be accountable for everything. Even the slip ups, those of us that are doing this successfully, enter everything we eat, even the bad stuff. No one will berate you for it, we'll only support you and encourage you to do better tomorrow. As and as far as the slips up, here's the thing. If this is going to be a "lifestyle change" for you, it's unrealistic to think that you are going to eat perfectly and completely healthy, every single day for the rest of your life. So if you set that as a goal, you're setting yourself up to fail. Instead, just commit to keep at it, and not to give up when you have a bad day for eating. There's always tomorrow and you can always pick back up where you left off. We'll always be here if you take a hiatus and then come back, no questions asked. Good luck!

Anyone doing the HCG Diet?
And as I see no further posts here, I supposed I made my point, and everyone "went home".

Keeping it Off - life after weight loss
Hi Kate. While I certainly understand your bf's logic in focusing more on strengthening for the incr muscle mass that will make it easier to burn calories at rest, don't totally bag the cardio. Your heart really needs that exercise it gets when your HR goes up, after all the heart is a muscle too that needs strengthening. :) I think the current popular school of thought from the AHA, is cardio activity 5 days of the week, only needs to be 30 mins. Best of luck in setting up your maintenance plan!

Anyone doing the HCG Diet?
Show me the "Evidence Based Medicine". Any legitmate studies would be conducted by a third party, non-biased funding source. Only research studies that have used scientific method to analyze the data, can be considered reliable and valid indicators of effectiveness of a diet. Show me a research study, published in the JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association), that shows HCG can result in healthy, maintainable weight loss. And if you can't produce that, then game over, go home.

BORING!
Hey if you REALLY want a good laugh, check out the thread titled "The Pickle and Water Diet". Priceless! You won't be sorry.

Lower Back Pain re Atkins?
Kidney pain is not good, means they're not functioning properly. Maybe ease off the indication intensity a bit. The last thing you want to do is send your kidneys into chronic kidney failure that requires dialysis.

Hummus
I too love hummus, but it seems low in protein for the amt of fat calories it has. Has anyone come across a brand of hummus w/ higher protein levels?

New healthy fast food for breakfast! Yay! :)
I keep wt watchers bagels in the freezer. Toast one of those and slap some fat free peanut butter. The bagels are great, a goog amt of fiber and even decent protein for a bread item.

HCG makes me sad
Amen sooki! Also, I wonder about the people posting so many links for advertisements about HCG. Seems to me like a desperate need they have to "recruit" other HCG "believers" onto their band wagon. But why the severe desperation to get other people to buy into HCG? The only reason people desperately recruit, is to surround themselves w/ other people in the same mind set. And usually the need to do that stems from lack of faith in their program/diet. So my conclusion is that people who are heavily advertising for HCG, must have some doubts about the diet they're using. Also, why the need to defend HCG so strongly? If someone really believes in something, shouldn't matter what other people say then, right? To me, someone so desperately defending a diet in that fashion, seems to indicate a doubtfulness about the program...
