Belly fat over 50
I read "Burn the fat, feed the muscle" by Tom Venuto. It is a bit of a self help approach to fitness but has some great advice and programs to work to. It has been very successful for me - might be worth a look.

Long Term Permannent success is Possible
Philmck - the words "foolish", "stupid", "small minded" and "choking on your own advice" when responding to someone's opinion struck me as a little negative.

Long Term Permannent success is Possible
Spacey48. It is a shame that this string has become so negative. What you have given out is a selection of useful and realistic tips for those who want to adopt a healthy lifestyle whilst accepting that sometimes in life there are times when it is ok for whatever reason to indulge and sometimes overindulge. Total avoidance is not the key to sustained weight loss or maintenance. Long term (i.e. 10, 20 years or more) includes the occasional treat for most of us. Whilst some people can be evangelical in the early years of dramatic weight loss there are very few that can adopt that lifestyle on a permanent basis. Well done for sharing your honest opinion.

How to ensure no muscle loss in Atkins
[quote=smughal]Will consider your suggestion, currently i am doing brisk walk for 45 min on daily basis[/quote] In that case is there any possibility that you can incorporate any uphill sections on your walks. I think this adds resistance and will increase muscle strength.

How to ensure no muscle loss in Atkins
You need to lift weights - I do a class at my gym called body pump which is weightlifting to music. It s amazing what a difference it has made. Though not on Atkins I am sure all my weight loss is fat not muscle.

Challenge updates
Thanks sunkeeper. I've emailed about this too. I will uncheck the boxes and see what happens. It's good to know I'm not alone on this.

Challenge updates
Hi. Am I doing something wrong? When I update my weight info I am checking the boxes to feed the information in to my challenges but they are not being updated at all. Is this a technical glitch with fatsecret or am I missing something?

Need some advice
Abbie - I always tell myself that the most difficult bit of exercise is stepping out of the door. If I only have that small barrier to overcome then it seems possible. If you need tips and encouragement I have been reading a website called nerd fitness which has some great tips about about doing it one step at a time and some good motivational stories. Incidentally before November I did hardly any exercise but now do at least 5 hrs per week and I'm amazed at how much better I feel. Logging it on your exercise chart is a good way to see that you do have time - try and get those resting hours down from 16 - it is much more difficult than you think.

Thanks so much - what a dope I am for not working that out.
by Mamachickpea (submitted 3 years ago)
Hi , I've been on the site for a 10 days or so and have been logging my food and exercise carefully. I can't work out why some days I get an asterisk in my diet calendar next to one or both and sometimes I don't. Anybody know?
