The Whole Calorie Counting Thing
Don't 'worry' about anything. It's proven that worrying causes high cholesterol. Do everything in moderation. Obviously, if your RDI is 2000 calories a day, you are not going to have a healthy weight loss if you consume those 2000 calories in candy bars which are primarily sugars. Whether you are following Adkins, South Beach Diet, or your own eating plan, eat a balance of nutritious foods and stay close to your RDI for weight loss. And stay active, if you're not building muscle which burns more fat even when you're sleeping, you will have a very frustrating journey. It's all about the balance of good nutrition, exercise and taking in less calories than you expend. There are a lot of good articles on this site for helping maintain that balance. Hope this helps.

Humor
I noticed sometimes pics don't show up if you make comments after them. Sometimes just making the pics the last entry makes them show up, even if you don't change anything else. I consider that a bug, but it's been that way for me off and on for two years.

Why are all of my posts in the forums
Seriously, I think we all went through this at one time or another when we first got started. As Nicole mentioned, at the bottom of this page in the blue border is an email contact link for FS. All you have to do is send them a note that your posts are getting sent to moderation, and they will fix it. For some reason, there seems to be something that you can do as a relative newcomer that flags this. It must be a simple fix; usually doesn't even take a day.

bored. CHEAP healthy easy foods
I like the idea of the romaine lettuce wrap. It's the bread that is my downfall. Think I'll try that. You can have the alfalfa sprouts though. :)

OK NOW I HAVE SEEN EVERYTHING!!!
That's just plain gross! It seems that it would actually cause you to overindulge since there is no consequences - except maybe bolemia.

Coffee
I have heard that coffee stalls weight loss, but there are critics of just about everything I put in my mouth. I count the non-dairy creamer on my diet calendar. I drink a lot of diet soda as well. I have even been taking 1600 mg of the green coffee bean extract each day for the last two weeks also. I did have a caffeine overdose once when I drank a quadruple expresso from Starbucks. I was bouncing off the wall. But other than that, I don't see any ill effects. In fact, I think it keeps me from gorging on things like sausage, egg and cheese biscuits, or donuts, or blueberry muffins, or pancakes, etc. down at the cafeteria. Sometimes the teaspoonful of non-dairy creamer is enough to knock the edge off my hunger craving. It just works for me.

Dang, Buffy! I drink that many in an hour; I should have lost 150 pounds by now! LOL!

Guy calls that news anchor overweight
I think she (and they) over reacted. He was an idiot; he was full of crap, stating that it was her responsibility to be thin as a role model for children. If she had received an email stating that she was "hot" and fat women ought to show our young people that beauty is on the inside, you wouldn't have heard a peep out of her. On the flip side, the media use their free speech rights all the time to attack people that don't share their station's opinion, calling them bigots, intolerant, haters, etc. Isn't this a little sanctimonious and intolerant?

RDI
For a technical explanation of how your RDI is calculated based on your Total Daily Energy Expenditure, check out the topic 'How is Your Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) Determined?' in the 'Moderation Motivation' Group Forum.

DON'T DO CARDIO - Must Read!
Our ancestors didn't have Lucky Charms and Sunny Delight either. Some people have no desire to do cardio, some do it for a lifestyle change and some go to extremes for a short time to get thos 6-pk abs. The only thing I've got against the insanity type cardio programs is that the participants push the envelope for 90 days or so, get very fit, consume inordinate amounts of carbs, and then taper off, and sometimes continue to consume inordinate amounts of carbs, and then, guess what? Their weight chart looks like the business cycle. I've never known anyone that continued with the P90 or similar programs for extended periods of time. Runners are about the only ones, I know of, that continue the regimen for a lifetime, and I have yet to see any evidence that suggests that this decreases their longevity at all - quite the contrary. Runners may scale back on their HIIT workouts as they grow older, but I have actually seen people still pulling off marathons in their 90's. I think the empirical data contradicts the theoretical in this case.

Since chronic means continuing for a long time or recurring frequently, I suppose the author proposes we do cardio for short periods of time and infrequently. That's how I got in the condition I found myself in. LOL!

O ye of little faith! Kirstie Alley, Marie Osmond, Jennifer Hudson. Were they 'really' not attractive and sexy before Nutrisweet and Weight Watchers? Hmmmm. Must be something amiss in my chemistry.

Chub Rub
However, just because the anti-perspirant seems to work for me, I thought I might better look into the what others say about it: "Aluminum-based compounds are used as the active ingredient in antiperspirants. These compounds form a temporary plug within the sweat duct that stops the flow of sweat to the skin's surface. Some research suggests that aluminum-based compounds, which are applied frequently and left on the skin near the breast, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects (3). Because estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, some scientists have suggested that the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may contribute to the development of breast cancer (3) . . . Because studies of antiperspirants and deodorants and breast cancer have provided conflicting results, additional research is needed to investigate this relationship and other factors that may be involved." BTW, this quote is from the Fact Sheet at the National Cancer Institute. These ingredients are NOT in Body Glide, which contains the following ingredients: Active Ingredients: Allantoin (Comfrey Root) (Skin Protectant) Inactive Ingredients: Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract, C18 36 Acid Triglyceride, Capric/Caprylic Stearic Triglyceride, Tribehenin, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) [url=http://www.cancer.gov/can...

Chub Rub
Funny that you mention that, Hoser. Men's Power Stick, available at the Dollar Tree, works as good as body lube for keeping the thighs from rubbing together. Women aren't the only ones that have to deal with this issue. Most of the time, when on a longer run, which I haven't had lately, I'll wear the spandex type undershorts, under my running shorts, to keep friction-ree. I'd almost forgotten that I used to use this stuff.

DON'T DO CARDIO - Must Read!
I suppose if I live to be 89, they'll say I would have made it to 90 if I hadn't pushed my heartrate up for extended periods so many times. Good golly, I never expected to live this long! Oh, I suppose once someone gets something like this into their head, it's almost impossible to convince them otherwise. I think this stuff causes cancer in rats anyway!

DON'T DO CARDIO - Must Read!
The heart is a muscle and has to be developed just like you would any other muscle. People that have developed their cardiovascular system and musculoskeletal systems to the point where they are operating at maximum efficiency are not anywhere near the risk that the couch potato is, who goes out for a brisk 20 minute walk that is beyond his or her capacity at the time. Endurance training and HIIT, done correctly, with proper rest intervals, increases cardiovascular efficiency, decreases cholesterol, lowers your resting heartrate, fine tunes your metabolism, and has been responsible for curing more people with type II diabetes than any other ritual I know. I agree with Erika; the MD is doing more harm than good, by scaring people into believing that they shouldn't push beyond their comfort zones.

I think the article is hogwash, and the M.D. is a Mad Doctor! IMHO! There is too much evidence to the contrary.
