Before and After, anyone?
Very nice, Snezica!

Yes, I use an app called to automatically send my Fitbit calorie burn to FatSecret. It works great. That's all it does at this point, but it's enough. I have used it for months and I highly recommend it.

why does resting has an exercise value?
Jim is right, but to answer your basic question, yes, you do burn a significant number of your daily calories just by being alive. That's your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). The number will vary based on your age, weight, height, and gender. I find the FatSecret estimates for that number to be pretty accurate.

Protein Cartb and Fat ratio
Great info from Chad as always. However, I have had success using the IIFYM calculator (you can Google it). Some think it is a bit heavy on the protein recommendation, but you can play with it and try different settings for a while and see how they affect you. I choose my own calorie total, but attempt to hit the recommended protein, fat, and fiber numbers each day. Good luck!

What's the most you've put on after a month of letting yourself go?
I went from 204 on April 8 to 233 on April 23 during Easter vacation this year. I got back on plan and got back to 204 by May 11. I put on water weight super fast when I indulge but it comes back off pretty fast when I get back to work.

Check out I use it and it copies my calorie burn from Fitbit to Fatsecret. That's all it does now but that's enough for me. Good luck.

Loss is Good
It occurred to me as I congratulated some FatSecret buddies on their success today... This is perhaps the only place where it's appropriate to say, "Congrats for your loss."

Hello all! :-)
Welcome back and good luck.

Thanks, Akrsar! I have learned a ton of stuff up here and I'm proud to pass on what has worked for me. I agree that mummydee offers outstanding advice (and is usually the first person to post when someone asks for help). Best of luck to all as we continue on our weight loss journeys.

Why can't I loose weight faster
There are several good calorie calculators on the site in my signature. 1800 may be too many for you. See what they recommend and log all food to ensure you are staying at the RDI needed to lose weight. Good luck!

Having no success for months even when working with a nutritionist... Help please :(
Not opinions. Things that have worked for us. If you are truly doing all these things and not getting results, then you need to continue working with professional doctors. Your needs seem to be well beyond the input of fellow dieters in an online forum.

msbuggirl, your 'soapbox' post was right on. Great advice.

Hi. Please go to my site and click on one (or all) of the RDI calculators at the top right of the page. They will tell you how many calories you should be eating. Then I would get a kitchen scale and make absolutely sure you are logging each and every calorie fully, all day long. I would set any exercise settings at the lowest setting above sedentary. It's easy to overestimate that. A Fitbit or other tracker will give you a truer calorie burn number. You seem to have the right approach. Good luck.

What's in a name?
Fun. I have a website called The Drag Racing List that tracks all pro, semipro, and exhibition drag racers from 1950 through today. My website -- -- has been up since 1996 and is the largest of its kind in the world at 10 thousand pages. Tons of stories, results, photos, videos, etc. I also have been a pro motorsports announcer and event promoter and I currently have a Monday night 'radio' show on the Internet.
