Do you guys track fruit?
It sounds like you are doing well. I log everything in my food diary - in fact, I use it as a menu planner because I plan my food for the day in the morning, I tend to stick with it when it is already logged. Of course, I make revisions when necessary.

The 15 Minute Lunch
Iagree with farrar21 - you need to have protein in there. Pre-cook and then grab and go!

weight lost
Stay with a well developed plan, log all your food daily and you will see loss over time. Slow losses are usually more permanent.

I agree with the posters - five days is not stuck or a plateau yet. GOOGLE the article titles, "Why the Scale Lies" to learn about water, sodium, etc.

Or should I say "Green Tea Good for Weight Loss"
I enjoy a cup of green tea almost daily - but it is because I enjoy the taste.

"Poop-less in Seattle"
Drinking at least 12 cups of water and taking magnesium tablets daily could help.

nothing works...
FatSecret overestimates RDI and the calories burned for exercise. According to what I have read, high intensity intervals (HIIT)in your cardio coupled with weight training is effective. For nutrition. it sounds like a real challenge - but if you develop muscle and burn more calories than you eat, you should lose.

One of the best ways to figure our your needs is to use Katch Mcardle formula. If you know your lean bodymass (LBM), you can figure out your metabolic rate (BMR)- the calories you burn daily without exercise. Eat less than your BMR and you will lose weight without exercise. LBM requires first knowing your bodyfat%. The formula requires you to convert LBM to kgs. Here is how it works: My LBM of 121.08 pounds divided by 2.2 = 55 kgs. The formula: 370 + (21.6 X 55kgs.) = 1558 calories = BMR My BMR is 1558 calories. We then multiply 1558 x 1.2 to consider activity and my Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) with the exercise is 1870 calories. Once you know your BMR and TDEE, you can choose to eat in a deficit - with our without exercise.

Intermittent Fasting and Low Carb/High Protein
What a relief! Thank-you, kookywit for your comments.

intermittent fasting
"No Wheat For Me" - Many people do 16:8 Intermittent Fasting which just means eating within an 8 hour window. I have been doing it for 18 months and lost over 80 pounds - perhaps you could do some research before you tell others it will "ruin your metabolism." Starvation mode is a myth. I workout five days a week, and have plenty of energy - and I am 61 years old!

Protein Powder
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard offers good tasting protein. It depends why you want to use powders - I drink them to increase protein totals to build muscle. If you want to hold off hunger, a snack may be better like hard boiled eggs, unsalted almonds, Greek yogurt, etc.

The Truth About Avocados
Thanks Ollie - you are cool with me. Read some of the books we all have read...Grain Brain, Keto Clarity, Low Carbohydrate Living. You may enjoy them.

The Truth About Avocados
Whatever, Oliver. Not sure why you enjoy contradicting people so much. Let it go - Acceptance is the key. Your link is one viewpoint and mine is another. I liked Perlmutter's book - have you read it? If not, it is easy to pass judgment and post articles by his detractors.

The Truth About Avocados
I have to agree with the goodness of avocado - I eat a whole one per day. I continue to lose fat and build muscle. It is all relative. Balance is key. May I suggest you read a great book titled "Grain Brain"? The neurologist Perlmutter explains how healthy fats work in the body and how they support brain activity better than any carbohydrates.

Grain Brain Diet?
I loved his book - I read it last year. I do no grains of any type, and have dropped off dairy, too. I do high fat, moderate protein and low carb of limited vegetables and fruit. Basically, Perlmutter suggests a ketogenic approach. A site you might enjoy is:
