What are some of your embarassing/emotional/eye opening reasons for loosing weight?
I want to look thinner in pictures. I saw some recent pics of me in a bathing suit and I was horrified after even losing 30 lbs. Do others see me like that or do they see what I see when I look in the mirror? I wonder about that because in the mirror I think I look pretty good. In the pictures, not so much. Just tells me I still have along way to go!

Can anyone offer feedback about a program called Naturally Slim?
Just completed my first on-line video today. This is going to be interesting. I just reset my weight to a new plan.

Morning Protein
I re-read your post because I did not get the impression that you were eating while driving, just that you needed something quick in the morning before you left for that long arduous drive. I really don't like to eat anything anytime while driving, it reminds me too much of the people you see going to fast food drive thrus and then trying to mash some mega empty calorie fat and sodium laden breakfast/lunch/dinner mess into their mouth while driving. If you must have breakfast while driving, I would opt for a great protein shake, I make mine with whey protein, iced coffee and soymilk shaken and off I go if I am short on time. The other option I offered up above is if you have time to sit down before you leave and need something quick, n/f plain greek yogurt, fruit, a great complex carb granola.

"Still Counting Calories? Your Weight-Loss Plan May Be Outdated"
I so agree with this article. If it were merely as simple as calories in vs calories out, I would have lost over 80 lbs already. The science of weight loss is not that simple I am afraid.

I will definately keep everyone posted. Will probably just keep running along on this string so you don't have to hunt thru my journals.

Can anyone offer feedback about a program called Naturally Slim?
I am going to be participating in a pilot program offered by my employer called Naturally Slim. As part of the pilot it is free to us. Seems to be something a little different. No specific diet, pills, supplements, foods, etc. It is all about re-educating yourself to eat like a thin person does. Their theory is that it is not about what you eat but more about how and when you eat it. Any feedback anyone can offer on success/failure would be appreciated. I start it next week. If interested here is the link: https://www.naturallyslim.com Thanks ~Babs

Tasty, healthy veggie burgers?
Hermoines, I know you are looking for convenience here. I have never been a huge fan of the veggie burgers, but I do have what may be an excellent alternative for you. Don't know if you have a Costco around you but if you do, they have these wonderful frozen Pacific Salmon Patties made by Trident Foods, they are here in the food library under Trident Foods. No preservatives or fillers, just tasty wild pacific salmon with some lemon and seasonings. Can go straight from freezer to grill, pan or oven as a salmon burger or straight up with sides of veggies or for breakfast with a sunny side egg on top. I have it on my food journal tomorrow for breakfast if you want to check out the nutritional content. Oh yes...and 14g protein per pattie.

Is your Shampoo making you fat?
I find it to be just a bit of common sense that things that contain names you can not pronounce much less spell can not possibly be good for you to ingest or rub on your body. Organic products are so readily available now a days, why would you want to go any other way? Not only do I support my local purveyors for fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy, soap, and anything else I can find locally, I just feel better for it and know I am doing the best I can for my family. Getting healthy isn't just about losing weight.

The Great Salt Wars - How much is too much??
Veghead, excellent tip on the PDF or CSV file capability. Great tool especially for those who are not overly slick with excel formatting, it does all the work for you and you can save it for reference purposes month to month. I keep tons of stats monthly but this is certainly a nice feature for basic info retention.

The Great Salt Wars - How much is too much??
Yes, I know...salt = flavor Salt also = [b]water retention [/b]and Excess Salt CAN = [b]High Blood Pressure[/b]. So all my buddies know I use every opportunity to remind them about the affects of sodium in our daily food intake...but this really pertains to everyone no matter what kind of WOE you are following. [b]Please take a moment to read this article.[/b] It is not just for those who currently [b]have[/b] High Blood Pressure, if you do not have high blood pressure now, a high intake of sodium can [b]lead [/b]to HBP if left unchecked!! You will see it is not about the salt shaker alone but more about the salt that is unknowingly packed into the preserved and prepared foods we eat. http://www.aarp.org/food/diet-... If you do not currently track your sodium on your food log, please edit your preferences and monitor it for at least a week. Are you consuming too much? Where does salt hide in your most commonly eaten foods?? Try and make some changes to cut it down just for the health of it!!

Sugar in your diet.....
Many sources I have looked at give a benchmark of no more than 12 teaspoons of sugar per day for a 1200 calorie/day plan, that includes foods natural sugars or sugars that you add to your foods, packaged foods, sauces, etc. A teaspoon of sugar = 4 grams x 12 teaspoons = 48 grams of sugar per day. For kicks, take a look at your food journal today and edit your preferences to include a look at sugar. Follow it for a week and see how you are tracking. My personal goal is no more than 40 grams/day. Some days I make and some I do not, but my monthly average is 46 grams/day and I can tell you that even that is difficult to achieve on some days.

Buffy- How do you account for the sugar in fruits and vegetables? Do you track sugar on your preferences in your food journal?

Add Multiple Items Problem
I noticed that this morning and thought...WTH, I haven't eaten that in months!

Fat Percentage
The % pie chart gets thrown out of wack pretty easily and so I find a better way to chart your progress is to control and track how many actual grams of fat, carb and protein you are eating per day. You see you could eat 50 grams of fat in a day and be at 75% fat, but throw in a good protein drink or some high protein greek non fat yogurt and although your grams stayed at 50 your % of fat could drop to maybe 50%, see! Add in more lean protein, fruits and veg.
