Nighttime eating
Peanut butter is mostly fat and high fructose sugars - so hard to resist! I switched to almond butter and it is OK. I tend to not overeat it and it has healthy benefits without the additives. Or maybe find peanut butter that is ONLY peanuts and a little salt.

Experience with planet fitness?
I am not a member at Planet Fitness - but I have gone there several times as a "drop-in" member. It is clean, has many options for cardio and weights, and has a no pressure environment. It is least expensive compared to most places, but you have to be very self-motivated.

Labs totally out of whack
So...it depends on what kind of carbs you choose to eat. Oatmeal is good, fruits and veggies are good.

Garcina Cambogia...
Tried it for two weeks but it didn't seem to do anything for me.

What a week of groceries look like.
WOW - this is truly enlightening! Fortunately, my personal weeks worth of groceries would look pretty good/healthy these days...but the typical American diet is frightening.

i am new, and daily calorie usage for a sedentary female of my age is way too high!
Yes, you are correct that FS seems to over estimate calories burned. We all tend to ignore it - FS may also tell you to eat more calories than you know will work for you. Just tweak it all to suit your personal need.

I suspect you are making posts under topics and forums - which are not sent to the community at large - try using the "journal" feature instead! Your journals will show up and more people will see it! Welcome to FS.

bread
I do not think we eliminate carbs - we choose the quality of carbs we ingest; fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc. Please read the book WHEAT BELLY (Google on Amazon.com) and you will have a new perspective. It is the REFINED carbs in most breads, cookies, crackers, baked goods that will cause SOME people to struggle with weight loss.

Adding Protein to Oatmeal
I have read that adding protein powder to anything WARM, causes the proteinto deteriorate which is why we don't make hot cocoa with chocolate protein powder. I think I will try the egg whites idea!

3 goals for the new year.
HI pam-u-la: 1) Live every day with a smile at SOMETHING at least once per day! 2) Love people - and tell them! 3) stay on track with my health and fitness goals for 2013 i.e., get under the goal weight, bike many miles in summer, wear my size 10 clothes!

Trying to figure out how to make Chobani's yogurt taste better.
Fage is great for me- in fact I now ise 2% fat since it actually has less sugars and carbs - I mix with any kind of fresh fruits, a little natural sweetener of your choice, maybe some fiber cereal for texture and you have a tasty, healthy protein filled meal!

‎"Americans are fat and sick because they eat too much and don't exercise enough." - n
Hey - maybe you are just losing weight by burning calories through all the typing and stress created by arguing? Each person has their own path - what works for Mlasell DOES not universally work for every person!

‎"Americans are fat and sick because they eat too much and don't exercise enough." - n
Sorry to butt in on this discussion - but I also agree with fatoldlady and Erika2633 when they state no one plan works for everyone, and being disagreeable and insulting is not a respecful way to discuss your point. I also am 57 years old and lose weight through exercise and calorie control - and I eat carbs through fruit, vegetables and dairy.

to all the other short gals
I agree with all of this and have a secret weapon - tailoring, ladies! Buy the jeans that fit the large parts and have the waist taken in - made "SMALLER" - isn't that a great concept? And I have had some nice blouses shortened, too. Then, I wasn't tucking in yards of cloth!

feeling sexy
Rock On , Lady! I feel better about myself...age 57 though, so some of it is biology when it comes to slow libido. Definitely have more enegy and interest!

Is it okay to blow a day?
There are food plans that encourage calorie cycling, and carb cycling (high days alternating low days) however, a jump as high as you suggest is not typically how it is done. Calorie cycling is more about one week staying at say 1300, one week at 1600, one week at 900, and then the final week back to 1300. The idea is to keep the metabolism guessing - also calories count but s does the quality of foods you eat - ice cream and pizza is high fat - may not be the best choices for weight loss.

The importence of quaility protein
I believe the photo is one of his clients - and the point is well taken that many people do eat too much comprised of refined carbs and not enough quality protein sources - shakes or otherwise. They then use all the carb sugars for energy and then do not burn their own body fat for energy - which really is the goal.
