Sunday is Fasting day
Right. I didn't realize this was your post. I only saw msbuggirl's post in my buddies view, so I replied to that one. I'll have to remember to read the full post. For some reason, these Diet Talk deals are largely hidden from me now unless one of my buddies posts.

Sunday is Fasting day
I do it every day and I live by it. Not a zealot, though. If my work schedule shows me working through lunch or things like that, I may eat at 10 or 11. But typically, my hours are between noon and 8pm. On the weekends, I work out in a fasted state, so I typically don't eat until 2pm or later. Good luck!

Can someone help me figure out how to record this?
Googled it. Got this: "the average weight of blackberries i collected was 2.43g"... close enough. I have been estimating food eaten in restaurants for three years now. Not optimal (I weigh everything I eat at home), but you do your best. Think of the long game... just get close and you'll be fine.

Intermittent Fasting & Coffee?
Good morning. Yes, you can have coffee with coconut oil. I do it daily with much success. That is the only thing I have before noon every day. Some studies even indicate that eating the Medium Chain Triglycerides in coconut oil actually help you burn body fat more efficiently during the fasting phase. Enjoy! Bill

Jim, you'll be looking like that again soon.

Looking for a Healthy type of cookie biscuit to make or buy
I've also begun to enjoy the Quest bars. They taste great (some better than others) and have a lot of carbs, but a lot of fiber, too. Typically, the net carbs are less than 5g and you get 20g of protein. All natural ingredients.

I track my stats very closely and I journal daily to keep track of those. I read the 'first page' of my friends' journals (no time to click the 'read more' symbol) and I offer short words of support for weight loss or other progress. My time does not allow me to read or comment on anything other than weight loss or exercise. As it is, I have to force myself off of here to get back to work!

Silence is deafining
Unfortunately, Fatsecret has removed the Forum as a default view. I used to check it out daily. Now it's hidden somewhere and I never make it over there unless one of my buddies comments on one (like now).

Activity Level
I would use the IIFYM calculator and list exercise at four times per week. You can Google it.

Wedding in just over 9 weeks
That is a fantastic tool. If you have an iphone or an ipad, you can get a simpler version. It's simply called Body Weight Simulator and is available for free in the app store.

Metabolism: Myths and manipulation.
This should be required reading. I just forwarded it to the Diet Truth facebook group. Guys, if you are stuck, drop the calories a bit. Unless you are lower than 1200 per day consistently as a woman or 1500 consistently as a guy, I wouldn't worry for a second about 'starvation mode.' The way that idea is tossed around is yet another myth.

water loss
Thanks, Chad. That is a fact. I have learned a lot up here and I'm still learning every week. I love to share what worked for me with those who are ready. Bill

Hi cstout. Check out a few sources to recommend how many calories you should target. There are great links to calculators on the top right of the site. I also use the IIFYM calculator to target specific amounts of protein, fat, carbs, fiber. Been pretty successful with both. Your calorie intake should be tailored to you. And the commonly identified minimum for men is 1500, but I have had months with an average intake of 1350 and single days of 600. Just don't do it for too many days in a row... Let me know if you have any questions.

Updated IIFYM Protein Calculations
Email exchange with the If It Fits Your Macros site today: Hi guys. Did you reduce your default protein recommendation or did I find a bug on the site. I have consistently been recommended 1 gram per pound of body weight and now it is lower... Did you find something through research that showed 1 gram to be too much? Thanks, Bill Reply: The calculator has always been at .8 but we had a glitch where it jumped to 1 gram.. We fixed it when we noticed it, however you might have started our calculator right when things were messed up. The research has been pretty clear for the last 15 years or so.. .7- 1 grams per lb of lean mass is enough protein. so .8 of total mass is plenty.

Before and After, anyone?
Very nice, Snezica!
by Draglist (submitted 3 months ago)
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.

Carbs... replacement foods
Avoid the 'simple' carbs... white anything.... flour, sugar, and starches. Eat 'complex' carbs which are fruits and vegetables.
