Quinoa is All the Rage...Why?
Quinoa is a wonderful grain - once you get it from the package, soak it in cold water about 15 minutes and drain until the water runs clear. Then, follow package directions until it is soft and all water is absorbed. Use it all kinds of dishes.

FS Guide
Greetings - FS traditionally over estimates recommended daily calories. The average woman will lose weight eating 1200-1300 calories each day. Many of us do low carbs which means low sugar, no white refined flour items, no rice, or potatoes to avoid the starch that equates to sugar. Good Luck!

NO CARBS!
I understand the health benefit of including whole grains for a LONG-TERM approach - but most of us here are in the losing weight mode and low carb is helpful until a person gets to maintenance. Paleo/Primal diets suggest no grains and no dairy. Since I started that WOE, my body is efficiently burning fat and I no longer have achy inflamed joints. Is it forever? I don't know but I think of food as medicine so I continue to do what gives me the most energy and causes me to feel lean and well.

Low carb question
I keep my total carbs under 40 grams whenever possible. And, less that 15% of my total macros. Generally my net carbs are around 20-25grams.

Low carb question
Greetings - it is really different for everyone. Are you trying to do high fat low carb? If you do low carb, look at the bottom of your food diary where there is a round circle that shows percentages. I go for 15% or less of carbs per day, and protein 25% or less, the rest healthy fats from olive oil, nuts, avocado, etc.

i do not get it.....
Perhaps they do not realize they must go under their site settings and click the correct buttons? Or, some people ask for help but are defensive if they hear what they do not want to hear like eat less sugar, log your food, drink water instead of pop, etc.

Low Carb egg options
If you look at more recent research, you may learn that eggs are excellent for you and they do not cause high "bad" cholesterol like we used to believe they did. Real food is better for you than processed - like Egg Beater's. Just my opinion after doing research.

SABOTAGE! Is any one else running Into this?
Sometimes I think the husband (or wife or partner) may be worried you will lose the weight and be attractive to other people and they will lose you to someone else. Or, perhaps they just are clueless and doubt you "mean" it when you say you are changing your eating plan. My husband eats things I chose not to eat and has the good sense to "hide" his treats so i don"t even have to see them!

Silence is deafining
MICHAEL - it works best if you post under "Journal" entries instead of under topics. Journal entries can be seen by more people.

New Friends Thread
Greetings Abe. The best way to get everyone on board to see your posts is to make "journal" entries instead of forum posts. journals entries can be adjusted for everyone to see - and then you will pick up :Buddies: HCB

not shedding the weight- three weeks on ketogenic diet
It is possible you are not eating enough calories - that will automatically impact your metabolism. And be sure to keep the protein under 30% of your total with the fat in 60% range - hope that helps!

Hello, Not exactly new
Aww - I am sorry people on MFP were not nice. People here are not judgmental...I love Classic Coke and have it ONCE in a blue moon as a treat so I know what you are up against. One can per day is great..eventually it will be gone...if that rs your goal. Otherwise, portion control is good, too.

Need HELP with ratio of carbs, fats, protein
I shoot for 40-50% protein (150grams for my weight), less than 30% carbs (does not always work when trying to get 30-40 grams of fiber daily) and the balance in healthy fats of nuts, olive oil, avocado, etc.

Why would you eat nuts?
Raw almonds are a staple for me - they have fiber, protein and healthy fat! Just a few ( like 10 or 12 almonds )can take away hunger immediately!

Garcinia Cambogia
I tried it and thought it did zero for me! I also researched and beleived I was buying the best one that had no additives; the right amount of the active ingredient, etc. The supplement that has seems to be helpful for creating muscle (WITH EXERCISE and proper food) is CLAs. You can but capsules at Trader Joe's, GNC, etc.

Under RDI yet gaining weight (and frustration!)
It is so difficult to estimate RDI, isn't it? I am learning that I need to eat more of the correct foods - not just calories. Try adding 200 more calories per day of lean proteins like ground turkey breast burger, whey protein shake or hard boiled eggs, etc. Our bodies will adjust to what we give it and if we eat too little, it will just hold on to the fat to "survive." I also am struggling with raising RDI but have increased it all with protein and seem to be losing inches and gaining muscle.

This diet suits me.
I do the 5:2 diet also, and have restricted my calorie intake on my feed days to only about 1200. Been doing this diet for quite a few months now and love it :)
