70% Diet and 30% Exercise is what I have always been told
Thanks, wholefoodnut. I have to give credit to my chiropractor. She really helped me out by recommending that book. I need to drop in on her. Denise had told her I've lost the weight, but she's never seen me. I need to take in a fruit basket of thanks to surprise her. Pam, the way to put a photo up is to use the 'image tags' with the URL of the photo between them. It's bracket [, the word IMG, and then the closed bracket ]. Then the URL (the photo has to exist on the web aleady. I use the ones I take on Facebook). Then you have to 'close' the image tag by putting bracket [, a slant /, the word IMG, and then a closing bracket ]. It's a pain, but pretty easy when you get the hang of it.

weight loss tablets
I agree with wholefoodnut. If you are a vegetarian, you are going to eat a lot of carbs, but just ensure they are good carbs. That is, lots of vegetables, some fruit (high in sugar though). Watch out for the bread, sugar, processed foods, and starches. Those simple carbs are what will get you.

70% Diet and 30% Exercise is what I have always been told
Thanks for the shoutout, Pam. After reading 'Younger Next Year' I realize that at 56 I need to work out nearly every day just to keep my body active so that it continues regeneration at the cellular level. And, when you get to maintenance, you DO need to work out in order to eat a bit more! In order to hit the target calorie deficit I want, I would either have to eat under 1200 calories routinely, or put in the work and get closer to 1800-1900!

Fit Bit
Hi. I have been using this app with much success for several months. For now, it only syncs the calories burned from Fitbit to FatSecret. Will be cool if one day it will sync the calories eaten per day to Fitbit, but that's just a quick entry on the Fitbit website. This has been 100 percent safe and effective! : ) Good luck with it. http://fitmess.herokuapp.com/

possible to split Snacks in two or three: Morning Snacks, Afternoon Snacks and Night Snacks?
Yes, I usually log daytime snacks in the lunch category and night time snacks in the dinner category on FatSecret. But all within RDI, of course!

weight loss tablets
I used it for the first year of my diet on FatSecret. It worked OK, but I can't quantify how much extra weight it let me lose compared to what I would have done otherwise. I stopped taking it about a year or so ago once I learned up here that fats are actually good for you and that carbs are what mostly need to be controlled.

special diets don't work
Congrats on your success. I agree totally on wishing I'd known then what I know now. But... we are on top of it now!

Sounds great. Keep it up! Or are you near your goal?

I also notice the biggest drops in weight after a good night's sleep. I am constantly challenged to get one during the week, however!

Health Sidekick
Thanks, I know FS is wrong on the RDI but too late to change now. I've been successful in working around it. I will try again to enter net calories and weight to see if it works. Would be an amazing service if somehow it could sync with the info we already have stored here.

Weight loss jumpstart--intermittent fasting
I do it every day with much success. But exactly what do you mean by IF? There are several options.

CALCULATORS
Hi. For me, it's all personal experience. I found the Body Weight Simiulator predicted exactly my weight loss over the first year. After I lost my first 100 lbs. (which it predicted to the day but some crazy overeating on my part extended it for one week), I stopped using it for a while and tried some other things. When I found myself floundering a bit in my weight loss. I went back to it seriously in May and June and I achieved my secondary goal right on target. I'm now using it to recover from my September 2014 "party month" and I'm right on track.

I looked it it. Very cool stuff. I will return there to play with the numbers some more.

Interesting, I will check out Scooby. To me, the gold standard is the Body Weight Simulator app that is available for free on the iphone or ipad. If you don't have one of these devices, you can use the older version of the software on their site. I have included links to both (and to another great alternative) on my diettruth.org blog. All free, of course.

Hello! New to Fatsecret. :)
Welcome, Inevitable! Glad to have you here. You definitely can lose that weight with the help you get on this site. Great stuff from our fellow members already. Have a look at that counter that mummydee linked to and set a reasonable goal of 2 pounds a week. If you can stick with that, you can drop 100 each year. Yes, it will take a while, but you'll be doing it in a very sustainable way. It worked for me and many others. Let us know how we can help.

Back on the diet again
Good luck. Got to track every calorie (at least I do).

barcode scanner giving me the wrong items
I think this has to do with the database and it stinks because there is no getting around it. THis has happened to me twice. I put in some pork rinds and I got cheese!

Input my meals to the wrong day - easiest/quickest way to copy them to correct day?
This happened to me by mistake the other day - there is a way to copy the entire eating day somehow to another day, but since I had accidentally switched two days, I just decided to leave them that way ...
