Try adding magnesium tablets to your diet - they have a natural laxative effect.

Enriched Cheese Wholemeal Cream Roll Mislabelling
I have read that if the transfat amount is below a cut-off point that manufacturers are allowed to say, "low-fat" or "no-fat" even if there us fat.

I agree with you this is not what the FS community is about - that is my exact point! Where is the supportive comments and open-minded ideas when someone disagrees with our poster? I am sorry to again comment @ Carol - but that tells me you might feel it is acceptable for others to be made fun of because of their beliefs and chosen weight loss methods. We all should be able to post our ideas without ridicule - but if I first am attacked, I will respond. I was made fun of because of my earlier post about Gary Taubes and his book - and several other people also were told they were just wrong about their ideas. This is what I commented on - about how patronizing and unwillingness to listen to other viewpoints in not helpful. I am not challenging his beliefs or ideas - it is the way it is done that bothers me.

Virgin Coconut Oil
I agree - I make Bulletproof Coffee every day and love it. Blended in a mixer, I use one tbsp grassfed butter, one tbsp coconut oil, pour hot coffee over it to melt, add creamer or sweetener to your own taste, and then blend it to a frothy yumminess!

[i]Diablo 360x says: There we go with the insults again. Thanks HCB! And the reason I post here is to help the misinformed. ____________[/i]______________... I am not insulting you, and never have insulted anyone here. I have responded to your insults of me. Everyone can easily go back and read this thread. You first insulted me - and I replied. Simple. In my last post, I simply asked you if everyone is so "Misinformed", why do you bother? And your last reply reinforces my previous diagnosis. Again, you have your beliefs and other people have theirs. Because you are patronizing and insisting you are better informed by saying you are helping the "Misinformed", you are a Narcissist. You prove it with your own behavior. [i]Narcissistic Personality Disorder Definition Narcissistic Personality Disorder is characterized by behavior or a fantasy of grandiosity, a lack of empathy and a need to be admired by others. Narcissistic personality has a pathological unrealistic or inflated sense of self-importance, has an inability to see the viewpoints of others, and is hypersensitive to the opinions of others.[/i]

Thank you Coopwill for articulating so well. And, my friend, Diablo360x, if we all are so "uninformed and scared" why do you bother to stay on this site? Is it because you enjoy berating others and being a Narcissist? You can go to bodybuilding.com and argue with them. And,research and studies can easily be challenged and adjusted to meet the researcher's hypothesis. Not only that, but I am sure many of us can cite research to challenge your ideas. I have neither the time or interest to do so right now. I agree with Coopwill that you are young and hope you someday learn grace and tact. You would be a wonderful resource if you were open-minded and kind. But then, a Narcissist could never understand such a concept. It would require empathy.

LowCarb Femme is exactly right about her history. I agree with Ibiza122 as well - many factors play into each person's metabolism. There are special foods for reducing inflammation in the body, or folks with irritable bowel syndrome - or diabetes. Carbs are related to insulin spikes that upset many people's systems. Also, Northern Musician is right about age, metabolic changes etc. The law of thermodynamics applies to "normal" situations - most people come here because weight loss is not easy and have unique circumstances. Our friend above suffers from narcissistic personality disorder because he often displays a snobbish, disdainful, or patronizing attitudes. And, I can say this becuase I am PhD Psychologist by profession!

"I'm sorry that you believe in his theories. Oh well, make it all harder than it needs to be and keep believing you're a special kind of human. Sad" written by Diablo360x WTF? "Keep believing I am special kuid of human"? What the hell does that mean? Keep your insults to yourself, please. I have a right to believe in what works for me. YOU do not know it all about everything there is concerning weight loss. Honestly, I am SICK to death of people thinking they are RIGHT and others are wrong. That is NOT what this community is about. So BACK OFF!

I agree with jmb3450! I know the bodybuilders like to talk about calories in vs. calories out - but we are all different with our responses to sugar/insulin. Metabolisms differ, too. I do poorly with starch, breads, white refined flours, etc. Diablo360x - try reading Gary Taubes book - "Good Calories, Bad Calories" - it is quite informative.

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.
