Logging Daily Food
[quote=Rckc]Is there any way to manually add something to food diary that isn't in fatsecret data base?[/quote] I add food to the database all the time. But sometimes it's not clear on how to do so. I think they changed it recently. got this from FAQ's menu, bottom of the page: [b][i]How do I add a food to the database? When you click "Add item" from your food diary, you can click on "New Item" or if you search for a food and can't find it in the database, you can click on "Add this item to the food database". You will then be able to add an item to the food database by completing all details for the food such as the brand, product and nutritional information. You can choose to share the food with other members and add it to any meal and use it over again. [/i][/b] checking today, I DON'T see "New Item" or add item, anywhere. also, it seems to be easier to do from my Android phone.

entering My Bio fails
Thanks Mummydee and JustineJones, good ideas. I tried both, but fatsecret.ca made no difference, and Even one short sentence gets the same null result. Oh well, but very strange. every time I log in I check, and the same short bio I tried to enter comes up when I go to 'My Bio". with the same "SAVE" & "CANCEL" buttons waiting.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
[quote=Ann444]Wow that is great.:) I make my own acidophiles.(Milk kefir's) It too contains plenty of B vit. and K vit, plus acidophiles and bifacdophiles! It is great! :)~Ann [/quote] Thanks Ann, same to you :) I wish more people were aware, like you are, the many benefits of True 'Basic" foods. and that Probiotics like kefir and yogurt and kefir water actually PRODUCE B vitamins in our digestive system! FOOD is Medicine too. (BTW: I can't eat cow milk produces anymore, due to being allergic to milk protein (like most people actually are and don't know it.) Now I make Kefir Water. I'm glad you can still use kefir. :)

changing a past weigh in or goal
We CAN change past weight entries if that's what you mean: Go to home page, choose My Weight History on right side part way down, then find "Enter historical weight entries" which is further down on the right. From there choose the date you want to change on the left, in the calendar. Enter the new weight amount, and hit Save.

Symptoms of Vitamin B Deficiency
check out: http://www.healthline.com/heal... this article is good, but not surprisingly addresses only a very few of the 64 B vitamins in the complete B complex. Modern Science & Nutrition experts DO know we need the complete complex, but have only vague knowledge of what all the others actually do. quote: Ever wonder why doctors always tell you to eat a balanced diet? Say you love pineapple chicken, for example. Pineapples and chicken are both good for you, right? So, why can’t you just live off pineapple chicken? The reason is that the building blocks for good health come from a variety of foods, even if they are from the same family of nutrients. Such is the case with vitamin B, a key player in maintaining cell health and keeping you energized. Not all types of vitamin B do the same thing. Additionally, the different types of vitamin B all come from different types of foods. Vitamin B12, for example, is found primarily in meat and dairy products. B7 and B9 (and, to some degree, B1 and B2) are found in fruits and vegetables. END quote. Nutritional yeast and Spirulina have all the B vitamin complex, perfect balance of B vitamins, except for B12.

Head cold update:
Early evening yesterday I set all the clocks ahead for daylight savings. I went to bed early since I overdid it. but Last night was difficult. and a lot of restless sleep. The first few hours were very bad, sinus draining down throat, tickle & cough required to clear passages. Tried Ben Gay but made more drainage? However, I was in bed for 11.5 hours, so got some good much needed rest. Started the day with Nutritional yeast cure. Delayed but ate my breakfast. Good appetite, feeling better but had to blow my nose often until about 11am. Sinus flush helps.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
Ann444, yes, I"m in northern california. :) Nutritional yeast has enhanced my life, for almost 50 years. B vitamins do not store in our bodies, like most vitamins do, and we use them up when stressed, and since todays world causes a lot of stress, MOST people are deficient in B vitamins. We need it every day, not just when sick, since the requirment is high and we get so little in our 'modern' diets. Depleted soil, chemicals, apples that are HUGE, NOT so nutritious. It's also enhanced my cats life as well. I give him nutritional yeast or spirulina every day along with Kelp for minerals. Most everyone comments on how young he looks and acts at almost 18 years old. Although I am worried about him lately: he's lost a lot of wt. and not eating well, throwing up almost every day.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
[b]I overdid it today. the extra energy nutritional yeast gives me is nice, but I tend to do too much, not remembering that when sick I have no RESERVE. DID a few chores, the daily workout, worked on a customers car, and then spent an hour on the roof of the shed, applying Henry white sealer. Very thick stuff. ... but it's 70F in the shade and who knows what it was on the roof in direct sun, hot roofing, then very white sealer reflecting heat and light on me and in my face. Took a shower, had another dose (3rd one today) of Nutritional yeast cure cocktail. plus: I've had to do a nasal flush 5 times today. (Salt water, tiny amount of peppermint essential oil, and Horse chestnut tinture.) For the nutritional yeast to work when sick, need to take the cocktail alone, and not supposed to eat an hour before or after. [according to Paavo O. Airola, Ph.D., N.D., (1918–1983) was a nutritionist, naturopathic physician, educator and award-winning author] I have nutritional yeast every day in my breakfast (check my diet calendar) and it didn't PREVENT this cold from happening. but, it IS doing a good job of fighting it since I'm following directions when sick. in spite of my overdoing chores and expending energy I don't have. :)[/b]

Sweetincense: Good to know. Thanks. :) Isn't it amazing how many foods or spices have healing abilities? :)

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
wholefoodnut: yes! I think it is mandatory to have at home. :) Also Spirulina, which is pretty much the same for protein and B vitamins. Nutritional yeast is easier to mix though.

Why does Nutritional Yeast cure colds and flu?
Mar 7, 2015; When I am sick with a cold, sore throat or flu, I eat nutritional yeast, I still exercise, and actually do better. Since Nutritional yeast is the richest souce of the full B vitamin complex and is the ammunition for our immune system. Yesterday I got a sore throat, suspected head cold, confirmed overnight. So I started the day with my Cold and Flu cure: mostly Nutritional yeast. but check my diet log... Just now, 10am, I did five more pullups than last workout, and 10 more wide deep pushups than last time. and I'm supposed to be sick. I never get more than 5% to 10% sick when taking Nutrional yeast when fighting colds, etc. And most often I'm fully healed in 2 to 3 days (and have all the extra energy from the 'B vitamins'.) Hard to believe? It's been working for me for 40 years. There are 64 B vitamins in the B vitamin complex, and it's very important to get them in a balance, since they INCREASE CELL ACTIVITY (more energy and fast healing), so, B vitalmin PILLS don't work. All these B vitamin pills have massive doses of the common: B2, B6, B12, etc, but severely lack the rest, but legally can call it 'complete complex' since they have a tiny amount of brewers yeast in there as well. BTW we NEED to get sick once in a while (I was overdue) so our body can build up the antibodies for fighting the diseases.

thanks howzat4u, and mybe they aren't popup ads, ? they are just on the page when page is opened or when I switch to another of the fatsecret pages. but they change, different ads, some of them the same as mentioned.

There 'were' popup ads on every page, and one of them finally put me over the edge. I just don't want to see that ad, the same ad, over and over. I find the ad itself offensive. I’ve clicked on upper right corner, notified google it’s offensive many times. no change. I've had enough. I'll continue to use my phone application to track my calories, etc. But I apologize that I won't be able to see or respond to any comments or posts on the web site, and any that are directed to me. I use the Mac version and I think it's different. This web site: fatsecret.com, for me is difficult to navigate and nearly impossible to respond to a request to be my buddy. It's also very difficult to go back and look for any responses to any posts made, either by me or my buddies. That along with the googleleads and double click adverts that seem to be locked in to the code of this web site, since deleting all the cookies like those on my computer (there were many) made NO difference in which ads appear or how often they appear, I just need to stop using this web site.! Thank you for sharing with me. I don’t know how anyone would contact me if they wanted to, since I’m not coming back. [EDIT: yes! I will live with the other problems, and won't leave, thanks to so many of you with suggestions that fixed the 'ad' problem! :) :) ] blessings to all.

DIET: Importance of Breakfast
When we struggle so much at trying to Lose or Maintain weight, it seems impossible that a SIMPLE solution would actually work. What helps me the MOST is eating a huge breakfast. check this out: Eating a good breakfast: "Keeps you slim! Breakfast helps revive your metabolism, which slows down while sleeping, and gets it in a calorie burning mode. Starting your day with a meal revs up your body’s fat-burning ability, says Dawn Jackson Blatner, a registered dietitian, As proof to that statement, a study at National Weight Control Registry at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center showed that four in five successful dieters eat breakfast every day. " from: http://blogs.bu.edu/sargentcho... I switch the intake of calories around, from a huge dinner, to more appropriately: a huge breakfast. We need the calories DURING the day, not at the end of the day, which is in starvation mode when we don't eat enough very early, and then the body thinks it needs to store more fat overnight, since it thinks we are in a famine. Doesn't the body metabolism slow down in a famine? Become conservative, reluctant to spend energy? and is mainly geared up for storing energy. When we eat late, after a deficit all day, it is only natural that we will store that dinner as fat overnight. Yes, but it is SIMPLE to change that. No struggle needed for cravings, since we won't be having them. Their is an adjustment period, to convince our body that there is no famine. But I'm here to swear that it WORKS.!

burning fat...
Best way to burn fat, from what I've read, is to start a workout BEFORE breakfast. Since when we are sleeping they say we are burning mainly fat. We burn calories sleeping, yes, to keep our body temperature above room temperature. :) and for repairing, digesting... I've heard that it's the first 15 minutes or so, depending on intensity, that we burn off mostly carbs. Also keeping heart rate in the middle range or even lower range is suggested as well. There are charts that show that range, lowering with our age. [head trainer at JCDFitness.com : The body does rely on different substrates during exercise according to the exercise intensity. At a lower intensity level, the body relies more on fat as a fuel source as it more time to breakdown fat and convert it to energy (a longer process). During high intensity efforts, the body begins to metabolize carbohydrates instead, preferring their speed of breakdown to fuel higher levels of exertion. This fuel preference is also dictated by the availability of oxygen which is required for fat utilization.} and [The fat-burning zone may exist, but I wouldn't worry about hitting that zone if the goal is fat loss specifically.” Instead, he advises clients to focus the majority of their efforts on generating a calorie deficit. “You may burn a little more fat during exercise, but if a calorie deficit isn't present, then it will all even out in the end you won't lose much fat at all.” In lower intensity programs, the overall calorie burn during a workout will be lower than a high intensity workout - regardless of whether those calories come from fat or carbohydrates.] from http://www.mensfitness.com/wei... And there are studies showing that if we are doing a high amount of cardio workouts, and long ones, then our bodies get used to burning fat, AND START STORING FAT MORE, since it's the most common fuel used with that dominant behavior.

calories in one item!
[b]Very interesting. I ate my usual large breakfast. Then went shopping. Had several items to get; Batteries for various devices; Fuel for the car; Groceries: celery, cilantro, Fennel seed and bought a single serving carrot cake instead of the tempting whole cake. I don't usually buy anything like this, and Got home and ate the One Serving piece, 245 grams, with icing. then entered it in Fatsecret; I don't know about you, but I'm shocked! 1000 calories!![/b] If I had eaten another piece later, if I'd gotten the whole cake, that would have been 2000 calories, and very little nutritional value. & this is considered one of the healthiest treats, isn’t it?

RE online concern that Vit A is bad in large doses:
You do realize that most of us are pretty stupid? Including Doctors? We are busy and have limited time to fully explore or understand any one thing. Knowing I'm also pretty stupd: I question everything. Including my own conclusions. :) quote from Albert Einstein: If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered Mind, then what does an empty Desk signify?"
